congressman preparing to get themselves arrested to push for immigration reform.As Twitchy reported yesterday, the administration had no problems trying to lock World War II veterans out of Washington’s war memorials last week, but the red carpet was rolled out on the National Mall today for a previously scheduled immigration reform rally. The Park Service determined that the ”Camino Americano: March for Immigrant Dignity and Respect,” sponsored in part by the SEIU and AFL-CIO, was covered under the First Amendment.

Despite the shutdown, there were plenty of Capitol police on hand to greet hundreds of protesters.
