Chanting pro-immigrant protesters end up having peaceful dialogue with Border Patrol, take pictures together

Ginter, who is a member of the Courageous Resistance, asked how the Border Patrol identifies who is a criminal and who isn’t.

In the context of immigration enforcement, anyone who is in the country illegally is subject to arrest, Kim said.

“If you’re deportable, meaning you don’t have the right to remain in the United States as provided by law, then we have the obligation to take that person into custody and then at that point it’s out of our hands, really,” he said. “I mean the legal system takes over right? We are just the enforcers. We don’t control what happens to somebody, that’s the judge’s role.”
