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.

Ex-Ambassador to Russia explains how Putin will exploit the divisions between Trump and his advisors
The former U.S. ambassador to Russia explained how Vladimir Putin will exploit the divisions between President Donald Trump and his advisors.
"A double bombshell in reporting from The New York Times this weekend about the president and his relationship with Russian president Putin," anchor Kasie Hunt said.
"First, The Times reports that the U.S. is escalating online attacks on Russia’s power grid in an effort, 'partly as a warning and partly to be poised to conduct cyber strikes if a major conflict broke out between Washington and Moscow.' But that’s not all," she noted. "The second bombshell in that report that officials are worried about briefing the president."
Trump’s only winning strategy is to tear down Democrats — because he has nothing to promote: MSNBC panel
President Donald Trump has little to promote for 2020, so political analysts on MSNBC think that he'll likely spend the campaign working to tear everyone else down.
Howard Fineman noted that if Trump intends to do a "tear down" campaign, the most important things Democrats will have are policy proposals to set themselves apart from a White House that is unwilling to pass anything through Congress.
"It's just a question of can he do what he did in 2016 and 2018, which was, frankly, mobilize voters in a fear-tactic kind of way," said Fineman during Monday's "Meet the Press."
Host Kasie Hunt said that it seems the new Trump poll numbers show that his base is losing enthusiasm as they go into the election.
Trump being a ‘compulsive liar and erratic ignoramus’ is why he failed on Iran: Conservative columnist
President Donald Trump's highly-criticized decision to withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal has resulted as was warned, with the country reviving its nuclear program, a conservative columnist explained in The Washington Post on Monday.
Conservative Max Boot took a victory lap in the hard-hitting column, reminding that he had signed a March 2016 letter by 121 Republican foreign policy analysts warning about Trump's approach.
"I wish we had been wrong, but we were all too right," Boot wrote.
"Trump has shown no ability to grow in office; but then it’s hard to learn if you all you read is Fox News chyrons. He is today the same compulsive liar and erratic ignoramus he was at the start of the 2016 campaign," Boot said. "Only now, the stakes are much higher."
