Today during an immigration hearing of the House Judiciary Committee, a group of DREAMers interrupted the proceedings and were then escorted out of the building.


Here is a clip of the protest, which occurred right after both San Antonio Mayor Julián Castro and Illinois Rep. Luis Gutierrez spoke. A Facebook post identified one of the protesters as Jerssay Arredondo.
