Three Congressmen Arrested For ‘Civil Disobedience’ Outside Trump Tower

Three congressman were arrested for “civil disobedience” in front of Trump tower in New York City Tuesday morning.

Arizona Democratic Rep. Raul Grijalva, Illinois Democratic Rep. Luis Gutierrez, and New York Democratic Rep. Adriano Espaillat, all were arrested for civil disobedience while protesting outside of one of President Donald Trump’s personal residences.

“I stood in front of Trump Tower today with a whole lot of DREAMers, immigrants and Americans to say enough to Trump and his criminalization of our immigrant communities,” Grijalva posted on his Facebook page.

Minutes later, another post appeared on Grijalva’s Facebook page reading, “Update: Raul was taken into custody in front of Trump Tower for civil disobedience along with Rep. Gutierrez and Rep. Espaillat.”

No additional information about the incident has been released at this time.

The Daily Caller News Foundation has reached out to the three congressmen’s offices but did not receive a response in time for publication.
