During an event honoring LGBT Pride Month, President Barack Obama had to open the White House Library and read a heckler her constitutional right to take a seat.
The heckler, later identified as an undocumented trans woman and immigration activist Jennicet Gutierrez, was protesting deportations under Obama's administration, which have reached a record high. Though Obama has supported immigration reform, Gutierrez said in a press release she was "outraged" at the President's lack of leadership.

However, one must also consider Obama's actions on LGBT issues, which have led to a cascade of reforms in just the last few years. Naturally, there's more progress to be made, and people like Jennicet Gutierrez are making sure that we know that.
