The “Aloha DREAM Team,” a Hawaii-based group dedicated to furthering the rights of immigrants in the United States, stormed the Capitol Hill offices of Sens. Ted Cruz and Jeff Sessions, sitting in the middle of the floors, disrupting business and demanding support for President Obama’s executive immigration actions.

The group then posted a picture of their assembled activists inside Mr. Sessions’ office on Twitter.

Their tweet: “Taking over Jeff Sessions office to tell him we WONT stand for his attacks on our immigrant families! #GOPMoveOver.”

Mr. Sessions’ staffers told The Daily Caller that the protesters were loud enough to disrupt business, including telephone calls in and out of the office.

Fernando Pizarro, a reporter for Univision, then posted a picture of several activists staging a sit-in at Mr. Cruz’s office.

His accompanying text, Newsmax reported: “#Immigration activists sit in @tedcruz office in protest for his attempt to block executive actions.”
