Over 50 people toting their penile extensions and waving American, Gadsden, and “Second American Revolution” flags paraded through the city of Vassar, MI–from city hall to Wolverine Human Services’ Pioneer Work and Learn Center, where up to 120 twelve to seventeen-year-old refugees from Honduras, El Salvadore, and Guatemala may be temporarily housed until their immigration cases–the ones provided by Bush-era legislation–can be heard.
Recently, many of these same people declared that “We want to live the American dream for our kids, not some kids who are dropped off in our lap,”and “I fear within two years of letting these immigrants in, [surgical] masks will become standard” because of diseases that residents irrationally fear that these children carry.
One resident suggested just blowing them up. “I support a minefield along the border,” said a Marine Corp veteran.
One protester voiced his fears that these criminal children may escape from the facility. “As far as security goes, they have kids walk away from this camp all the time. If they let these illegals in, it’s gonna get worse. And we don’t know anything about these illegals. We don’t know if they’re criminals, if they got criminal records, or what.”
Another claimed that “the humane thing to do” is to send these children back to crippling poverty and crime.
Tamyra Murray, the organizer of the march, said, “They have eight-year-old kids that are coughing and sneezing out blood, suspected TB cases. That’s going to come out into our communities,” repeating the right-wing fear mongering that these children are the modern equivalent of smallpox-infected blankets.
She claims that her “contacts” tell her that some of the kids act as drug runners and belong to gangs.
We don’t have no say. (President Barack) Obama’s gotta go,” said Scott Freeman, owner of Finish Line Pizza in Vassar. Jeff McQueen, designer of the “Second American Revolution” flag, said that another revolution was indeed beginning.
“Not in my backyard,” said McQueen. “These kids are here illegally. Obama has ignored us.” He added, “He’s calling illegal immigrants undocumented immigrants. It’s like calling drug dealers undocumented pharmacists.”
