    This is nuts. These people are here illegally. There’s no special category of “here illegally, but an activist so the law doesn’t apply.” Nobody infringed on their right to free speech, or to assemble. They weren’t arrested for speaking or protesting. What they don’t have is the right to be in this country. That’s all that was being enforced. I have sympathy for people who want to come to this country and work hard for a better life. I think we should make it easier for them to do so legally. But the law has to be the law and applied equally to all. Being an activist doesn’t (or shouldn’t) make anyone above the law.
