The same group of xenophobic bigots who held their own meeting last week to throw a fit about the possibility of 120 child refugees being housed for a few weeks in Vassar, Michigan while they await an immigration hearing just held an armed march in that town to protest the same thing.
For the second time in two weeks, several conservative groups from around the state gathered in this small community Monday to protest the possible housing of Central American children.
About 50 demonstrators, two armed with semi-automatic rifles, carried American and tea party flags as they marched one mile, from city hall to a social services facility that would shelter the young undocumented immigrants.
“We must act,” said Tamyra Murray, a resident of Blumfield Township near Saginaw, who organized the protests. “We must save America and stand up against this invasion.”
“We’re not against kids,” Murray said, speaking to media before the march started. “We have sympathy for the kids being used and exploited by the feds.”
Okay, let’s do the math. These people are demanding that these kids be immediately sent back to the dangerous places they came from, which is a violation of federal law that requires that child refugees be given an immigration hearing before a judge. The “feds” are trying to make sure they are fed, clothed, educated and given medical care while that process plays out. Who is using and exploiting those kids, exactly? These people are moral monsters.
