Democrats can’t seem to stay out of trouble.
It has gotten especially bad since President Trump was elected.
And one Democrat just found himself in jail because of what he did to spite President Trump.
Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) is perhaps the leading advocate for illegal immigration in Congress.
Representing much of Chicago, Gutierrez truly is the embodiment of everything that is wrong with the Democrat party.
And as we have reported in the past, he seems to find himself getting arrested a lot.
His latest arrest occurred just days ago while he was at an anti-Trump protest on Capitol Hill.
Democratic Rep. Luis Gutierrez of Illinois was one of the 200 protesters arrested on the steps of the United States Capitol Wednesday afternoon.
The protest was organized by the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) and was to demand action on Obama’s DACA program.
Protesters were heard stating “Congress refuses to act, and it’s killing us.”
The group promised more than 200 people would be arrested as an act of “civil disobedience.”
Rep. Gutierrez was one of the people who volunteered to be arrested, and he made good on that promise.
As reported by The Daily Caller:
“The sitting member of Congress joined members of the Service Employee’s International Union (SEIU) as they stormed the steps of Congress to demanded action on DACA. Both chambers currently are considering a bipartisan measure to replace the order that allowed temporary protected status to illegal residents nationwide.
“Congress refuses to act, and it’s killing us,” one protester told The Daily Caller News Foundation. Union leaders on the ground declined a request for comment for the story.
The group promised as many as 200 individuals would be arrested in a “civil disobedience action.” Those who pledged ahead of time to volunteer for arrest wore green gloves and green armbands and were ushered to the front of the line.
Capitol Police appeared unprepared for such a huge number of arrests but the force was quickly able to adapt, surrounding the protesters before giving the customary three warnings to disperse before legal action would be taken. Those who opted for arrest were taken to a makeshift processing center near the Capitol visitor center before they were ultimately loaded up in buses. Neither handcuffs nor flexible restraints were used on the somewhat peaceful crowd.”
Rep. Gutierrez bragged on Twitter about his arrest.

Gutierrez recently announced that he is not running for re-election in Congress.
That is great news for any Trump-supporting American.
Rep. Gutierrez has been a continued nuisance towards Trump supporters, doing everything he can to get in the way of President Trump’s agenda.
Even becoming violent and getting arrested isn’t off the table for him.
Outside of Congress, he will lose much of the pull he currently has in the fight for open borders.
Are you happy that Rep. Gutierrez isn’t running for re-election?
