Illegal Immigrants Chain Themselves to White House Fence

Stephen Dinan, Washington Times, September 18, 2013

Seven illegal immigrants chained themselves to the White House fence Wednesday to demand President Obama halt all deportations, saying he has a moral obligation to keep families together.

“Stop deportations—not one more,” onlookers chanted as police moved in to remove the activists, who aired a live web videocast of their arrest.

A day earlier, Mr. Obama had rejected their calls, telling Telemundo, a Spanish-language network, that halting more deportations is “not an option.”

Immigrant-rights activists said 1,200 immigrants are deported every day. The seven who chained themselves to the White House fence along Pennsylvania Avenue include three from Arizona, two from Atlanta, one from New Orleans and one from New York.

Their move creates a conundrum for Mr. Obama and the Secret Service, who will have to decide whether to put the seven activists into deportation proceedings now.


“When he said he didn’t have the power to stop deporting DREAMers, we built a powerful case with grassroots pressure and legal analysis and won a monumental victory with Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals,” said Cristina Jimenez, Managing Director of United We Dream. “He does have the power to stop deportations and we will keep challenging him.”


Deportations have been a tricky issue for Mr. Obama all around.

He has set records for deportations, removing about 400,000 people a year from the country, in order to be able to argue to conservatives that he is serious about enforcing immigration laws.

But he says he has tried to focus those deportation efforts on criminals and repeat-immigration violators, leaving most rank-and-file illegal immigrants in little danger of being deported.

    They should have left them there, then melted their handcuff keys.

    • Erasmus

      It would have been fun to go pelt them with garbage while they were locked up…or set a mugger on them.

  • libertarian1234

    If it were up to me, I’d leave them chained to the fence and hope they didn’t have a key.

  • Tim_in_Indiana

    How convenient! Not only have they self-identified as lawbreakers, but they have obligingly locked themselves up, ready for deportation!

    But only in a sane country…

    • Manaphy

      And also, meanwhile, sellout senators like Mark Warner of Virginia openly boast about hiring illegal aliens for their staff.

  • Spartacus

    Execute all illegal aliens – problem solved.

  • OnGuard

    I don’t even believe those numbers re. deportations! Not only Obama and his admin. lie a lot, but they pander for Hispanic votes. The Border Patrol has 10 or so lawsuits against the Obama admin. and have won 9 of them, so far, re. their desire to do their job of border enforcement rather than “stand down” as Obama told them. Cecilia Munoz, a chief advisor to Obama, was former head of LaRaza, which gets MILLIONS dollars from the gov’t. for their racist programs.

    • itdoesnotmatter

      A colleague’s husband worked for ICE, but has since taken early retirement because he couldn’t do his job, as in enforce the existing laws. But I digress.

      Obama’s goons cook the deportment books. There is no way that ICE is overseeing the deportation of that many illegals.

      The head of ICE received a 100% vote of NO confidence from the agents last year because they are hamstrung by this administration and those who do BO’s bidding.

  • Truthseeker

    If imperialism and conquest are supposedly so evil, why is it perfectly OK for someone to enter a country illegally and claim that he has a right to the land? How is it any different?

    • me

      It’s only evil and wrong if Whites do it….

    • QuinnTheEskimo9

      White colonialism = height of evil for which every White child must pay in perpetuity for “past bad acts.”

      Africans, Asians colonizing white homelands? = wonderful diversity and multiculturalism in White and ONLY White countries.

      Elimination of the White race and White homelands = goal of NWO.

  • kjh64

    Gosh, I wonder what would happen if Americans chained themselves to the president of Mexico’s home and demanded the right to be in Mexico illegally?

    • Bossman

      When was the last time that an American was ever deported from Mexico? Even wanted U.S felons are not deported from Mexico if they will face the death penalty back in the U.S.

      • QuinnTheEskimo9

        Back in the real world, for those of us who DO follow current events:

        Facing threats from the U.S. to withhold foreign aid, the Mexican Supreme Court in 2005 voted 6-5 to overturn its 2001 decision, paving the way for those facing life sentences to be extradited back to the U.S.

        “Juan Carlos Marquez, 30, was brought back to the United States Friday night and was booked into a county jail facility on suspicion of one count each of murder, child abuse resulting in death, and torture.”

  • Easyrhino1

    Maybe they can crash at Camp David for the next 3.5 years.

  • Spartacus

    Deport them to Mexico !

    • CoweringCoward

      I am thinking Cuba, as it’s a little more difficult to “walk back” into our country.

  • QuinnTheEskimo9

    Dig up the fence with them on it, plant it on the border and leave the skeletons there to rot in the sun.

  • APaige

    They show up and chain themselves to highly guarded government fence? I wish all criminals would do that-its makes the job pretty easy.

  • OhWow

    I wonder what would happen if a bunch of white Americans went to Congo in Africa and chained themselves to trees refusing to leave after invading.

    Something tells me they will do the opposite of what liberals think.

    • Bossman

      White Belgians did not have to do that. They just sailed up the Congo river and imposed their will on the savages with their guns.

  • bigone4u

    Once upon a time, I lived in a country where laws were automatically enforced. No more. If Obama will not follow the law, impeach the b*******. Since I believe in equality of outcome in this case, the same should be true of all of them–Holder, McCain, Graham, etc.

    • me

      Impeach everyone! Save some time–just grab everyone in the ‘government’ and throw them in prison. They’re ALL treasonous Marxists, globalists, corporate whores, anti-European Americans, and lawbreakers. They’ve done crimes against the USA, crimes against our fellow countrymen, crimes against humanity, crimes against our military, crimes against the oath of office, unconstitutional power grabs, unconstitutional spying, and using our taxes to destroy our home.

  • mobilebay

    These parasites need to have their rear ends kicked all way back across the border. This adminstration is so weak and has pandered to the lawbreakes for so long, nothing will be done. We are the laughingstock of the world.


    NOT 1 MORE! If he means not one more illegal alien jumping my border and dumping an enormous burden on the backs of the American people I agree. NOT ONE MORE!!!!

    And really, it must be very hard on them, you know, living in the shadows and all?????

  • MekongDelta69

    Same as above with the leftists pretending to be ‘illegal aliens’.

    Just leave them chained to the fence.

    Problem solved – again…

    • CoweringCoward

      I would go add another lock or an even bigger chain.

      • CoweringCoward

        And for that matter build another fence far enough away to prevent their com-padres from feeding and watering them.

  • OlderWoman

    Mexico is a dump.

  • White Mom in WDC

    No one forced these illegals here. No one owes them anything. Child Protective Services breaks up US citizens’ families all the time… Do these people honestly think that the dickweed in the office cares about THEIR families. You play, you pay. You pay, you get to play. There should be no double standard. Screw La Raza and the bottom feeders it coaxes into coming here. They are the ‘new’ slaves these illegals. Oh well. There is no such thing as a free lunch. Think about it: US citizens are treated like dirt, do you really want to ge one?

  • IstvanIN

    We are not Cuba, parents are allowed to leave with their children. If an illegal alien is deported their is nothing to stop them from taking their US born children with them. Only they can break up their families.

    • me

      That’s right! The Squat Monsters can round up their offspring and get the hell out of here! Nobody wants them here–except for a handful of corporate weasels, Marxist globalists, and political whore traitors. The majority of us, including LEGAL Mexican Americans, don’t want these criminals invading our home.

    • GeneticsareDestiny

      This is why it absolutely enrages me to hear amnesty activists using the argument that deportations break up families. Deported illegals can take their kids with them. No one is going to stop them from doing so.

      If a deported illegal chooses to leave his children here, he’s broken up his family himself, by choice, and that is his own problem.

  • IKantunderstand

    Obama has set a record in deportations. Really. PROVE IT. Regardless, even if true, he has set the record of releasing illegal alien criminal offenders, including rapists, and child molesters. However, the bottom line is this: If our borders were secure, the number of deportations would be a moot point. Track down visa overstayers, track down foreign student overstayers, eliminate “refugee status”, guard our borders vigorously, and, finally, eliminate ALL immigration to this, our White civilization outpost country, for which we have shed our blood, our spirit, and our souls to establish. Seriously, if we Whites were to put a price on Paris, with all its grandeur, how much do you think it would go for? How much? Is there a price for the Louvre and all its prized art? For the Eiffel Tower? For Versailles? Could the Saudis, for example, have enough money to buy Paris? Could the Arab countries with all their wealth combined, buy London? And, New York? Whoa, I’m gonna go out on a limb here and say: “No, despite all their wealth, not even they have enough money to buy Paris, London, and New York. But, if you look at the changing demographics, the Muslims will in fact, get all these fabulous, iconic, White civilization cities and landmarks for FREE. And, one must ask, what will they do with them? Cherish them, idolize them, refurbish them; or, BLOW THEM SKY HIGH!!!!! You know, like what they did to the Buddha statues in Afghanistan. White people, we are not only fighting for our lives, we are fighting for our very civilization to continue to exist in the world. Our White countries, represent a small land mass compared to the rest of the world, and yet according to the racist U.N. we White countries are always the first to be forced to take into our midst, the “refugees ” of the world. If this trend continues, I want to know what country will take in White refugees? Every White liberal I have ever known has fled the Black tide. We Whites are so screwed. Look, I have already posted here my transformation from a Liberal, to a realist. I apologize about bringing this up, but, I have an olfactory discrimination against non-Whites. I find Asians to smell absolutely like sour, musty, dirty laundry. Dot Indians, smell like overwhelming B.O. mixed with an obnoxious piquant cardamum. Hispanics smell like garlic and, again, B.O. Thank God, I have never been close enough to an Arab, but I doubt I would enjoy the experience. So, what are we to do, my fine White feathered friends? I still say: If you are a coward about doing anything definitely, at least write S.P.O.O.C. (Shoulda Picked Our Own Cotton).

    • me

      The UN is a hammer that’s used by the globalists who want a New World Order. The brownies and blackies are not resistant to totalitarian governments. Only the defiant, freedom-loving, and brave White European stock is a challenge to the plans of the globalist elite, so the plan is genocide by invasion of White countries. They have an agenda to wipe us off the face of the earth, or reduce our numbers so that we’re ineffective in politics. However, we have faced the attacks of the ‘elite’ and ‘moneyed’, the brown and black hordes, and Mother Nature herself throughout history. This is nothing! When we’ve had enough, we will fight back–and it won’t be pretty!

  • fuzzypook

    Obama voters…aren’t they lovely people?

      Yes, they look like they’ll be the ones to find a cure for cancer.LOL If this becomes the majority in this country, just look how wonderful this country will be.

      • David Ashton

        John Engelman’s “ethnic this and ethnic that” ?

    • Bossman

      I don’t see much wrong with these guys. They look strong, healthy, manly, clean-shaven with regular haircuts.

      • David Ashton

        Perhaps you could pay the hospital bills for the guy suffering from testicular cancer?

        • Bossman

          Which one? Maybe it is just his dick that is very big.

        • Bossman

          What are you talking about?

  • DonReynolds

    Good Lord! Is that the only way the Feds can catch illegal aliens? They have to chain themselves to the White House fence to get noticed.

  • DonReynolds

    Cristina Jimenez, Managing Director of United We Dream. “He does have the power to stop deportations and we will keep challenging him.”
    Sorry Mex…..this is not Latin America. The president of the USA does not have the power to write laws. He can only FAIL to do his job and his duty under our system of government. And that is only ONE MORE GOOD REASON TO REMOVE HIM FROM OFFICE…..specifically violating his own oath of office……”to the best of his ability”.

    • me

      Cristina Jimenez and the rest of her Marxist group can go straight to hell, since Mexico and hell are indistinguishable. Those people made Mexico the craphole that it is, and now they want to do the same thing here. Shun and boycott Squat Monsters.

  • Jefferson

    Squat Monsters chaining themselves to the White House fence. But the liberal media keeps telling us that these people are living in the shadows.

    • Bossman

      They may be U.S. citizens who are sons and daughters of undocumented migrant workers.

      • David Ashton

        That’s a problem, not an advantage. Crime shouldn’t pay.

  • JackKrak

    Illegals begging the Obama not to deport them?

    Isn’t that like begging a supermarket manager to keep the freezers plugged in?

  • Wethepeople

    Marxists only play hardball with whites, everyone else gets a pass. Didnt you read the line, “will have to decide whether to put the 7 in deportation proceedings.”

  • kjh64

    Actually, there are people in Central America who do come to Mexico illegally because where they are is far worse. Mexico promptly deports them.

    • QuinnTheEskimo9

      Or shoots them. The southern Mexican border is guarded by armed military.

      • Bossman

        Not true at all. Mexico mostly ignores their southern border crossers because they know that they are really headed for the USA. Besides, they don’t have the resources to put a lot of manpower at their borders. As for shooting people, that doesn’t happen. If they ever did that all their southern neighbors would be up in arms over this. Crossing an international border without inspection is a misdemeanor.

        • QuinnTheEskimo9

          Do your homework before popping off.

          Townhall, August 12, 2013:

          While the United States’ southern border remains wide open, Mexico’s southern border is already heavily secured with a full fence, armed guards, barbed wire and lookout towers. Not to mention, Mexico treats illegal immigrants far worse than we do. About 10,000 migrants have disappeared in Mexico every year since 2008, according to Mexican government estimates.

          • Bossman

            None of that is true. Why would Mexico spend a lot of money to prevent Central Americans from going to the USA? Migrants may be robbed but that has nothing to do with government policy.

          • QuinnTheEskimo9

            Let’s see, should I believe YOU who present NO data or facts to back up your assertion, or the writers at Townhall, Forbes and Washington Free Beacon who study these issues for a living?

            In fact, Washington has agreed to spend $2B to help Mexico secure its southern border with Guatemala while leaving the US borders wide open.

            “American politicians in both parties are stampeding all over themselves to pander to Mexico and adopt mass illegal alien amnesty schemes. But while the Mexican government lobbies for more “humane” treatment of illegal border crossers from their country into ours, Mexico remains notoriously restrictionist toward “undesirable” foreigners who break their laws or threaten their security.

            Despite widely touted immigration “reforms” adopted in 2011, Mexico still puts Mexico first — as any country that is serious about protecting its sovereignty should and would.”

  • kjh64

    Mexico doesn’t worry about a long and costly process. If one is caught in Mexico illegally, they are quickly deported, within days. This is after the corrupt police often steal the illegal migrant’s money.

    • Bossman

      Not true at all. Even wanted U.S. felons can live for years in Mexico without anyone bothering them. Don’t you ever read the news?

      • QuinnTheEskimo9

        Newsflash for Bossman: The extradition treaty between Mexico and the US was changed in 2005, nine years ago.
        Guess you didn’t get the memo:

        Facing threats from the U.S. to withhold foreign aid, the Mexican Supreme Court in 2005 voted 6-5 to overturn its 2001 decision, paving the way for those facing life sentences to be extradited back to the U.S.

        “Juan Carlos Marquez, 30, was brought back to the United States Friday night and was booked into a county jail facility on suspicion of one count each of murder, child abuse resulting in death, and torture.”

        “Another case highlighted on the website was that of David March, a 33-year-old Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputy from Saugus killed in 2002 by a convicted drug dealer who was wanted on two unrelated counts of attempted murder.
        The killer, Jorge A. Garcia, fled to Mexico within two hours of the shooting. He remained free until 2006.

        After the law was changed, Garcia was extradited back to the U.S. in 2007, pleaded guilty to the killing, and was sentenced to life in prison.”

  • QuinnTheEskimo9

    Uproot the fence with them on it and replant it on the Mexican border as a deterrent. Let the skeletons bleach in the sun as a reminder, just as our white ancestors impaled heads on pikes and left them as warnings over the Thames River.

  • QuinnTheEskimo9

    Our government has been hijacked by genocidal non-whites intent on eliminating the entire white race. This is happening in your country too as massive numbers of non-whites are being imported to flood white Australia. Your rulers and ours bow to the same NWO masters.
