A conservative activist is arrested while protesting illegal immigration at California Governor Gavin Newsom’s home. Laura Loomer and a group wearing sombreros and ponchos surrounded the governor’s mansion in Sacramento on Wednesday, where they demanded to be let in.

Loomer has been outspoken about her opposition to California’s sanctuary state policies, while Newsom has already taken steps to give illegal immigrants more rights and more access to health care.

Loomer was taken into custody shortly after arriving at the mansion.

“Every single day innocent Americans and innocent police officers are being killed by illegal aliens, who are being brought into this country and supported by people like Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and Gavin Newson, who is now the Governor of California, and it’s really interesting you guys…how you’re not allowed to jump over Gavin Newsom’s fence or Nancy Pelosi’s fence, you get handcuffed and arrested, but if you’re an illegal alien or you’re a rapist, or you kill innocent police officers, or you murder and rape women here, and you’re here illegally in California, right, you get all the free benefits, free welfare, free housing, free everything and you don’t get deported,” she explained while standing handcuffed with law enforcement.

Loomer held a similar protest at Nancy Pelosi’s home earlier this month, where she set up a tent with photos of people killed by illegal immigrants in the House speaker’s yard.
