Protesters briefly closed the Golden Gate Bridge, calling on Democrats to support the undocumented

At dawn when it hit the San Francisco sign known as the Gold Gate Bridge in China, traffic was stopped as many undocumented mothers, students and their assistants were in danger of being arrested for engaging in public disobedience.

Traffic jammed into the bridges rose to the north as protesters protested the Democrats’ lack of vigorously passing foreign policy, halting early morning marches to mark “twenty years of promises failed.”

“We are increasing our actions and our undocumented families are in danger of being arrested and evicted for sending text messages that we cannot wait for,” said DACA recipient Luis Angel Reyes Savalza, also an undocumented citizen.

Spirits were high among the few who stopped the early morning pilgrims, though the outcome could be alarming if there were any arrests.

Some protesters were given posters Thursday morning, but it did not show that public disobedience at the bridge led to arrests.

“The foreign community has endured a political crisis of fear from Democrats and Republicans over the past two decades, from horrific family divisions, to incarceration profits that have risen far beyond recognition, indiscriminate treatment among prisoners and border custody,” Reyes Savalza said.

Traffic at the bridge began to flow again shortly before 8 a.m. as the protest subsided.

The protest, organized by the Movement for Citizenship for All (Papeles Para Todos) and the Bay Area Coalition for Economic Justice and Public Citizenship, also focused on climate change and justice. They asked for a better economy.

“We were called as key workers but the two leaders Trump and Biden left the families without documents from helping,” Reyes Savalza told The Chronicle.

The morning car of the roads is set to coincide with a possible vote in Congress on the reconciliation budget, demanding that Democrats win the Senate parliamentary elections that have decided to travel abroad from $ 3 billion.

The delegation’s concern with Washington has a clear implication: Immigration change has been the eternal goal of policymakers and leaders who often fail, sometimes surprisingly.

There have been attempts within the last two decades to come to a close, usually as recently as 2013, when the Senate passed what became known as the “Eight Party” to move abroad. The massive bill to legally register millions of undocumented immigrants, amend the immigration law and regulate border security passed by a veto-proof majority of more than two-thirds of the Senate, a daunting step for consensus.

But he died in the House, where Republicans grew up complaining about anything perceived as “pardon” for undocumented. The position in the GOP was reckoned with the departure of former President Donald Trump, who introduced tough anti-immigration lines in major party areas.

Although common initiatives such as granting citizenship to the so-called Rotera, undocumented immigrant youth came to the US as children, it has been difficult to find, as the strongly supported ideology is surrounded by other political interests to try to take over.

Democrats in the full-fledged administration of Washington, representatives who hoped the left would have learned a lesson during the Obama administration, when the immigration change was not the first in the early years of power.

So far President Joe Biden has regained hope of going abroad on a system that allows Democrats to incorporate enrollment in the budget bill and exceed the required 60-vote rate in the 100-member Senate to promote the law. The expectation of that plan is grim, as a Senate lawmaker ruled twice, as recently as Wednesday, that Democrats’ proposals do not exceed the muster in order to maneuver, known as reconciliation.

Proponents of her case have been working to make the actual transcript of this statement available online.
