Mysonne Arrested During Immigration Protest In Washington

Rapper Mysonne was arrested in an immigration protest in Washington, D.C. on Tuesday (February 27).

Mysonne, along with other activists including Congresswoman Yvette D. Clarke, were protesting for a clean DREAM Act, a permanent solution for Temporary Protected Status Enforced Departure holders, as well as opposing President Trump’s attempts to repeal the Diversity Immigrant Visa Program.

Mysonne was filmed while escorted away in handcuffs when someone asked why he was being arrested, he said:

“Because I stand for something,”

“Because black immigration is our problem.”

Mysonne later posted on Instagram to reveal he had been released from custody, but emphasized there is still more work to do.
