Three days after law enforcement including the national guard were seen violently clearing protesters from a park in front of the White House ahead of President Donald Trump's photo op with a bible in front of a church, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi demanded accountability on Thursday and said the increased presence of U.S. military and federal law enforcement, including unidentified officers, in the nation's capital is "alarming." PELOSI: "Who's in charge?

What is the chain of command, and by what authority?" Pelosi urged Trump to provide a detailed list of the agencies operating in

Class="kln">Washington DC amid protests over racial injustice after the death of George Floyd, an unarmed black man, in Minneapolis last week.

PELOSI: "It's alarming that in our nation's capital, peaceful protesters are confronted with a deployment of various security officers, from multiple jurisdictions, including unidentified federal law enforcement." Pelosi said some of the officers were deployed without any visible insignia or badges during the protests centered directly around policing tactics.

PELOSI: "The practice of officers operating with full anonymity undermines accountability and ignites government mistrust and suspicion, and is counter to the principle of procedural justice and legitimacy during this precarious moment in our history." Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer earlier this week accused Trump of giving the order to clear the protesters.

The White House has said the officers were clearing the streets ahead of a curfew imposed by the District of Columbia.

Indian immigrants hold equality rally demanding immigration law reform

A group of Indians on H-1B visa held a rally in Washington DC demanding immigration reforms to benefit those in the country legally. "I am 17 year old, after turning 18 I am not underneath my dad's protection anymore, that means I will be deported back to India, but this state (US) is my home," said a teen protester. "My dad is here on H-1B visa that means he is hired by employer and that employer takes portion of his salary that is really detrimental growth of his carrier and mine too, even though I have skill to work, but I am not allowed to, because of my green card status", a teen protester added. Protestors held placards that read, 'Hate Has No Home Here', 'Senator Durbin Hates Indian Immigrants' and 'Racism is a Disease'. H-1B visa holders, whose children and spouses get H4-dependent visas, are asking that H4 children should be given green cards. "These are taxpaying law abiding skilled immigrants who are already in the country for many years, doctors, engineers, scientists professors, and they're stuck in the long green card backlog which will span 150 years. What we are doing here is protesting Senetor Durban's hold on the bill yesterday and he is making sure that Indian immigrants who are already here would not get equal treatment under the law, which is unfair," said Aman Kapoor, Immigration Voice president. It is noted that the High Skilled Immigrants Act has passed the House but not the Senate.
