Immigration protesters stopped traffic on San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge for more than 30 minutes Thursday morning, urging Congress to pass a citizenship bill through the budget reconciliation process.

"Immigrant communities cannot wait another 20 years of failed promises. An inclusive pathway to citizenship would boost the U.S. economy. As the Center for American Progress reports, a pathway to citizenship for all 11 million undocumented immigrants would increase U.S. gross domestic product by a cumulative total of $1.7 trillion over 10 years, create 438,800 new jobs, and increase wages for undocumented and American workers. The time to deliver economic justice, climate justice, and citizenship for all is now," organizers of the protest said in a statement, the SFist reported.

"For these reasons, we demand that Vice President Harris and top Democrats in Congress override the decision by the unelected Senate parliamentarian which excludes undocumented immigrants from the budget reconciliation process."

About 25 cars stopped traffic at around 7 a.m. on the bridge, and protesters delivered speeches from a bed of a truck and held banners reading, "Pass the $3.5 trillion spending bill," "Override the Parliamentarian," "Kamala: Override the Parliamentarian," and "Citizenship for All."

The protest came before House Speaker Nancy Pelosi pulled a Senate-passed $1 trillion infrastructure bill from being voted on in the House late Thursday. Progressives in the Democratic Party flexed their power over the bill, sticking to their months-long vows to not vote on it without a simultaneous vote on a $3.5 trillion ​​social spending bill.

Southbound traffic began moving on the bridge at about 7:30, while northbound traffic started moving at about 7:45.

At least five people were arrested, according to the California Highway Patrol, and four vehicles were towed during the protest.

Thankfully some of the clowns were arrested, and had their cars towed.

Good for law enforcement.

Just hope some dumbass DA in the city doesn't refuse to charge them with anything.

They are probably living rent free in their parents' basements, so need to be employed. Parents will be pissed if it was one of their cars that got towed and impounded.

I respect all protesters until they interfere with my business.  Then it is on.  I've done it before.  6 protesters at Vons found that out.

Should we wager on the outcome of their cases--if any are ever made against them?

But that can't happen because SF is a sanctuary city.

They want the illegal aliens to come and stay there.
