This is definitely a late entry as a finalist for the most ironic story of the year:

Come on, Chuck, why won’t you insist that your workspace serves as a “sanctuary office” for your like-minded brethren?

Seven so-called “Dreamers” as well as one of their allies were arrested during a sit-in Friday at the Washington, D.C., offices of Democratic Sen. Chuck Schumer of New York and Republican Rep. Carlos Curbelo of Florida, according to a media representative from an advocacy organization. And now they’re going on a hunger strike and facing possible deportation.

A Facebook post on behalf of Erika Andiola said she was among those arrested, and said they plan to remain jailed until Schumer and Curbelo publicly confirm they have enough votes to block any spending bill that doesn’t come with a “clean Dream Act.”

To quote the great Buck Murdock from Airplane II: “Irony can be pretty ironic sometimes.”
