AZ sheriff provokes protesters to block road with trucks to stop ‘invasion’ of 40 child refugees

Published

A group of anti-immigration protesters have gathered in Oracle, Arizona to stop 40 child refugees who have been invited to stay at a ranch for boys.

In what mirrors demonstrations in Murrieta, California that forced busses of women and children to turn back earlier this month, protesters in Oracle lined the road with trucks on Tuesday after Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu warned them that undocumented children were being bussed to the Sycamore Canyon Academy.

KGUN’s Keaton Thomas confirmed to CNN that trucks were blocking the road, and that the Arizona State Militia had been deployed to the scene.

“I’m protesting the invasion of the United States by people from foreign countries,” one protester told KGUN. “This is about the sovereignty of our nation.”

The protester added that he did not think that the demonstrations would frighten the refugee children because “they’ve been all the way through Mexico.”

The busses were expected to arrive later on Tuesday.

Published

During the "Overtime" segment of HBO's "Real Time," Bill Maher and his guests took up the problems the Democrats are having acquiring Donald Trump'stax returns as well as other documents they need if they are going to impeach the president.

Responding to a question over whether the state of New York will indict the president, the conversation turned to prosecutors seeking Trump's taxes.

According to presidential historian Tim Naftali, there is precedent allowing the acquisition.

"Is it really that hard to get somebody's frigging, f*cking taxes? " host Bill Maher asked.

"Actually, there is a precedent," Naftali explained. "If the House started on the impeachment hearings, they could act on the precedent of 1974, where Nixon's taxes were turned over to the impeachment committee. So there is a precedent, but they have to make the decision that they are having an impeachment inquiry."

"Do stupid sh*t as quickly as possible," Power clarified.
