Obama’s bureaucrats have been harassing veterans, kicking elderly couples out of their homes, closing privately run businesses and trying to block the view of Mt. Rushmore to make the public feel the pain of the partial government shutdown. But they seemed to have no problem granting a permit for an immigration amnesty rally on the National Mall, which is allegedly closed due to the shutdown.
Organizers for the “Camino Americano: March for Immigration Reform” were spotted Monday setting up a stage and equipment on the National Mall for the rally which will take place on Tuesday.
A few scattered barriers around the park have signs informing visitors that the area is closed as a result of the government shutdown.
Susana Flores, a spokesperson for the rally, confirmed for the Washington Examiner that the Park Service will allow the event to take place under the group’s rights granted by the First Amendment.
