National Parks are still closed but immigration reform rally moves ahead on National Mall

The National Park Service is allowing an immigration reform rally to go on as planned Tuesday on the National Mall, even though it’s closed due to the federal shutdown.

Susana Flores, a spokesperson for the “Camino Americano: March for Immigration Reform,” confirmed that the Park Service will allow the event to take place under the group’s rights granted by the First Amendment, the Washington Examiner reported.

Photos sent to The Blaze revealed a massive stage and setup for the event which will include appearances by Democrats Nancy Pelosi and Robert Menendez. The photos were provided by Bob Dane, communications director for the Federation for American Immigration Reform.

“The President and his administration have a history of picking and choosing which laws they want to obey and this is no different,” Dane told TheBlaze. “Americans who fought for freedom are denied access to the WW II memorial while those who violate our laws are rewarded.”

“The event is hosted by several immigration activist groups, together with the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) and the AFL-CIO,” according to the Washington Examiner.

National Parks have become a sensitive topic during the government shutdown as WWII vets were prevented from visiting the open monument and closures all over the country are irritating citizens.

Democrats in the Senate refused to move forward on bills sent over by the House to fund the parks during the shutdown.
