Arizona Detention Center Whistleblower Notifies Residents of Illegal Immigrant Arrival; Protesters to Block Buses
Buses carrying illegal aliens sent to the federal detention center in Oracle, Arizona will be met with more than a hundred protesters who were tipped off to the arrival by a whistleblower at the compound.
From the Ledger-Enquirer:
Protesters have begun gathering in a small town near Tucson after an Arizona sheriff said that the federal government plans to transport about 40 immigrant children to an academy for troubled youths.
Protesters on both sides of the debate showed up in Oracle. Anti-immigrant groups hoped to block the buses if they come, while pro-immigration advocates showed up to remind the migrants that they are welcome in the country.
Anger has been spreading in the town of Oracle since Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu (BAB’-yoo) warned residents last week that immigrant children from Central America caught crossing the border illegally would be placed at the Sycamore Canyon Academy in Oracle. Protesters were hoping to mirror demonstrations in Murrieta, California, when immigrants were bused there recently.
I wish these protests would focus on criticizing and blaming Obama for the crisis, instead of yelling at kids. Still, I think these protests being broadcast into Central America will do more to let potential immigrants know that they’re not quite welcome than anything Obama has done.
There should be some compassion for the younger ones who are actually children, but as the majority are 14-17 years of age, there’s a real threat here.
