As DREAMers and immigration activists descended on the offices of the Democratic National Committee on Monday to protest the Democrats' "too many lies" (video below), President Trump took to Twitter to troll the self-styled "pro-immigrant" party for "running for the hills" on DACA.
In a series of tweets on Monday and Tuesday, Trump called out Democrats for refusing to come to the table in the DACA negotiations despite Republicans being "ready to make a deal."
"It’s March 5th and the Democrats are nowhere to be found on DACA. Gave them 6 months, they just don’t care. Where are they? We are ready to make a deal!" he wrote Monday, the final day of the Obama-era program.
"Total inaction on DACA by Dems. Where are you? A deal can be made!" he reiterated Tuesday.
"Federal Judge in Maryland has just ruled that 'President Trump has the right to end DACA,'" he added later. "President Obama had 8 years to fix this problem, and didn’t. I am waiting for the Dems, they are running for the hills!"
As The Daily Wire highlighted, dozens of pro-DACA protesters converged on the DNC offices in Washington, D.C. on Monday, chanting, "Too many years, too many lies!"
"For years I've been told that Republicans aren't my friends, and they don't care about my community," one self-described DREAMer told the press. "I'm here to say 'no.' I'm withdrawing from the Democratic Party. I will not be working on any other campaigns. I will not be advocating for Democrats until something happens for my brothers and sisters."
Another expressed a similar sentiment: "I went down to the DNC and I took back what they stole from me and I took back my dignity and I took back my humanity!"
One of those protesting the Democrats was a Democrat herself, Arizona State Rep. Isela Blanca, the state's first "formerly undocumented" female legislator, who ended up getting arrested along with some of the other demonstrators:
