Immigration Racism

Angry Conservatives Block The Wrong Children

Angry, racist, conservative protesters who took time out of their day to protest and block buses full of brown children ended up blocking a yellow school bus full of kids from a local YMCA instead.

ORACLE, Ariz. (AP) — Protesters waved “Return to Sender” signs, shoved a group of mariachi musicians and waited for a bus of immigrant children that the local sheriff told them would arrive. At one point, they briefly halted a bus before realizing it was carrying children from a YMCA.

The bus of Central American children never arrived, ending a day of protest in a small Arizona town that drew more than 100 people on both sides of the immigration debate.

If they’re brown children and they’re on a bus, they must be undocumented parasites heading to the Ritz-Carlton processing center where they will watch big screen TVs, right?

Snark aside, it’s revealing that a bus full of children is automatically assumed to be a bus full of immigrants because of its location and occupants.

The transfer of the children from the border to a children’s academy where they would remain under the supervision of the Department of Health and Human Services was not advertised to the public, so infamous piece of shit Sheriff Paul Babeu took matters into his own hands and incited the protest.

Sheriff Paul Babeu is credited with stirring up the anti-immigrant protesters through social media postings and a press release and by leaking information about the migrants’ arrival to a local activist.

I’m sure there’s another explanation, but it would tickle me to death if the transfer schedule of the children was altered just to embarrass Sheriff Babeu and the protesters.

Two years ago Babeu called off his run for Congress after it was revealed that he was abusing his authority to bully his ex-boyfriend who was undocumented.
