Two Activists Wanted for National Border Patrol Museum Protest Are Arrested

It appears that many protesters believe they can break the law in order to protest a cause.

What they are discovering is that committing a crime has consequences.

Let me explain.

It seems hard to believe that anyone would feel justified in breaking a law in order to protest a cause they deem worthy.

But, more and more often, the liberal left doesn’t seem to understand the concept unless and until they receive appropriate consequences for their actions.

Two activists in Texas had to learn the hard way that eventually you will have to pay for your inappropriate actions.

In February, a protest was held by activists at the National Border Patrol Museum.

Tiffany Deveze, 30 and Elizabeth Lynne Vega, 52 were two protesters who had warrants out for their arrests for alleged actions they took pertaining to the museum.

Deveze was charged with criminal trespass. She turned herself into police and was released shortly thereafter on $750 bond.

Vega who lives in St. Louis, Missouri, faces a criminal mischief charge of over $2,500 which is a state jail felony.

She was booked under a $1,500 bond and remained jailed as of Monday night.

The two are accused, along with other protesters, of participating in acts of gluing stickers depicting migrant children onto exhibits and some memorials dedicated to fallen agents.

At the time of the protest, David Ham, a retired Border Patrol officer who oversees museum operations said:

“We’re finding out a lot of these folks were professional agitators. One of them was the female who climbed the Statue of Liberty. One who led the protests in Ferguson, Mo.”

Police discovered that the vandalism done to the museum was “far larger” than what the estimated 50 protesters told police.

The FBI estimated that 110 acts of vandalism were committed at the museum.

So, did the protesters really learn not to damage other’s property in the future?

Deveze indicated that she would keep standing up for her beliefs, saying:

“I will continue to stand with my community and defend human rights on both sides of the border, I will not be intimidated. I am not ashamed and I am not afraid.”

I’m guessing there’s more for them to learn.
