‘You’re in My House!’: Obama Kicks Outspoken Trans Woman Activist Out of LGBT Event

President Barack Obama was delivering remarks at an LGBT Pride Month reception at the White House Wednesday afternoon when a transgender woman interrupted him, shouting “President Obama, release all LGBTQ immigrants from detention!” Judging by the cell phone video of the confrontation that was quickly uploaded to YouTube, the woman is connected to the Not One More Deportation movement. “You’re in my house,” Obama said in response as the crowd tried to shush the activist. As security attempted to escort her out, the president said that heckling was not the way to get a “good response” from him on this issue. “Shame on you, you shouldn’t be doing this,” he added. The crowd chanted the president’s name as the woman repeated, “Not one more deportation” over and over again. Fusion’s Jorge Rivas identified the woman as Jennicet Gutiérrez, a founding member of the immigrant rights organization FAMILIA TQLM. She said in a statement: “There is no pride in how LGBTQ and transgender immigrants are treated in this country. If the president wants to celebrate with us, he should release the LGBTQ immigrants locked up in detention centers immediately. The White House gets to make the decision whether it keeps us safe.”
