Illegal immigrant demonstrators were protesting outside the White House on Monday–but don’t expect America’s immigration officers to intervene.

An Immigration and Customs Enforcement official indicated that even if the protesters end up getting arrested by D.C. police, they’d have to be serious criminals for ICE to get involved.

“Unless the individuals meet ICE’s enforcement priorities, it’s unlikely that the agency would get involved in the case,” the official told FoxNews.com.

This is why illegal immigrant activists can protest outside the White House without worrying too much about ICE.

They did so at lunchtime on Monday, marching across Lafayette Park to the White House and advocating a reprieve for illegal immigrant parents who brought their children to the U.S.–and whose children have benefited from a separate reprieve issued in 2012 by the Department of Homeland Security.
