The Supreme Court is hearing oral arguments regarding Barack Obama’s executive order concerning the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), and while that was happening, ‘dreamers’ gathered outside the building vowing to stay in the United States regardless of what the court decides.
Basically, they all gathered there to celebrate the fact that they would continue to disobey the law.
Marielena Hincapié, executive director of the National Immigration Law Center, told protesters that they should not have to leave regardless of the court’s ruling.
“You belong here,” Hincapié said. “Home is here.
“Home is here!” The crowd chanted. “Home is here!”
Hincapié said her left-wing organization would fight for the so-called “Dreamers” every day and predicted the court would rule in their favor.
Ted Olson, who served as George W. Bush’s Solicitor General, was in the Supreme Court on Tuesday to argue that DACA is a “lawful, legitimate” and “constitutional” program that Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano “signed into law.”
[These claims are an extreme hyperbole. Congress has NOT signed any law concerning these illegal aliens.]
DACA, in fact, was put in place through Obama’s executive action in 2012 and implemented by DHS.
Olson said he cared “deeply” for DACA recipients and was “honored” to represent them before the Supreme Court.
Olson said he wanted Americans to see the faces of protesters so they would know how important immigrants are to American society.
Greisa Martinez Rosas, who is deputy executive director of United We Dream, an organization founded and populated with youth that are in the country illegally, addressed the protesters who held signs that read “No human is illegal” and “Stop the Wall.”

“I’m undocumented and unafraid,” Martinez Rosas said. “I’m queer and unashamed.”
Like other speakers, Martinez Rosas said she is in the United States for good.
