Two members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus were ordered to leave a meeting Thursday between top immigration enforcement officials and lawmakers.

Reps. Luis Gutierrez, D-Ill, and Norma Torres, D-Calif., were among several members of the CHC who were told to leave the meeting with ICE Acting Director Tom Homan, the Hill reports. 

Other Democrats were allowed to attend.

“I was expecting to get let in. We’re the ones who were asking for this meeting, now we’ve been barred from the meeting,” said Juan Vargas, D-Calif., who was not allowed in the meeting. “I want to know what they’re doing, and now we’ve been barred from this meeting that we called for.” 

Vargas led a prayer with several other lawmakers who were barred from the meeting.

“It was the Speaker’s staff that came to me, and I know her very, very well, and she said she was speaking on behalf of the Speaker, that there were a limited number of seats,” Gutiérrez said.
