[Video] Armed Protestors (Kind Of) Gather in Michigan Town to Protest Housing of Illegal Aliens
Apparently, two people carrying modern sporting rifles is newsworthy in Michigan. The fact that 2 of 50 people at a protest against the housing of illegal aliens in Vassar, MI was important enough to put it in the second paragraph of the report on the protest.
According to The Detroit News,
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.”
The Pioneer Work and Learn Center is under consideration to house up to 120 of the children, who are part of the massive influx of undocumented immigrants who have crossed the U.S.-Mexico border since the fall.
The minors, ages 12-17, would remain at the facility up to four weeks while their cases move through the immigration system.
The carry of firearms at political rallies has become pretty commonplace in recent years.
Not really looking to start a debate on the immigration issue here, just wanted to point out the coverage of the citizens carrying rifles.
