WASHINGTON – Police arrested more than 100 immigration reform activists on Thursday in front of the White House as the latter engaged in an act of civil disobedience to demand that President Barack Obama provide relief for the country’s 11 million undocumented foreigners, who are at risk of being deported.

The arrests were made at the culmination of a peaceful march that began at the headquarters of Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

The executive director of the Casa Maryland organization, Gustavo Torres, told Efe that the president “can and must” stop the deportations.

The House of Representatives, in its final session before a five week recess, voted and passed a $694 million border appropriations bill on Friday in a vote of 223-189. The bill, if passed into law, would overturn laws already passed to protect the rights of immigrants such as advances achieved under the The Trafficking Victims Protection Act of 2000. The bill would also deny an extension of the Deferred Action for Child Arrivals (DACA).

With unexpected support from Republicans, the Senate advanced a $2.7-billion emergency package to handle the influx of minors at the Southwestern border with just days remaining before Congress leaves town.

A handful of Republicans joined most Democrats to breathe new life into the Senate proposal, which was scaled back from President Obama's $3.7-billion request. Border agencies have warned they will run out of money beginning next month.

What has been more difficult to follow is what is happening to the influx of refugee mothers who have recently fled to the U.S. with their children, many just toddlers and babies.
