Two Democratic challengers—including outspoken progressive Randy "Ironstache" Bryce—who hope to oust Speaker of the House Paul Ryan in his home Wisconsin district this November were among the nearly dozen immigrant rights advocates arrested outside Ryan's offices in Racine on Monday.

Bryce and Myers joined about 200 community members, including many high school students, to demand that Ryan allow representatives to vote on a clean Dream Act, which would allow young undocumented immigrants to attend school and work as part of a pathway to citizenship.

When a local reporter asked Bryce if his support for immigrants was worth being detained, he replied, "Absolutely."



"We cannot be silent on DACA," said State Rep. JoCasta Zamarripa, who was also arrested. "We will march. We will call. We will email & tweet. We will sit in nonviolent protest. And we will vote. You’re either on the side of humanity or against it."

Monday marked the day President Donald Trump had decided DACA—the Obama-era executive order which offered protection to young immigrants in the absence of the Dream Act—would officially end, before a Supreme Court ruling last month delayed the deadline.

Bryce will challenge Ryan in the November midterm election, should he win Wisconsin's Democratic primary in August. The union ironworker raised $1.2 million in the fourth quarters of 2017, with donations flooding in from across the country and averaging $24-25 each.

On social media, Ironstache supporters praised Bryce for his activism on the front lines of the fight to protect young immigrants.

We need more progressives in the government. They know how to fight.

I believe he stands a chance. Ryan is pretty much untouchable when it comes to primaries but not general election's.

Random guy makes useless gesture, let’s vote Dumbocrat guys! Remember Lyin’ Pelosi “we won’t leave for Christmas without Dreamer fix” gave us that useless “magic minute”. Wish someone had just told her to sit down and shut up.
