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.

‘Everyone he touches gets tainted’: CNN panel astonished by number of criminally convicted Trump allies
A CNN panel on Friday stood in awe at the number of President Donald Trump's allies who have been convicted of crimes ever since his election in 2016.
During a panel discussion about Trump ally Roger Stone's conviction on seven criminal counts that included witness intimidation, perjury, and obstruction of justice, CNN host Anderson Cooper said it was astonishing how many of the people who helped the president get elected have wound up in jail.
"In your own life, how many people are you close to in your orbit who have been convicted of crimes?" Cooper asked and then listed off former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, former national security adviser Michael Flynn, former Trump campaign aide George Papadopoulos, and former personal attorney Michael Cohen.
Marie Yovanovitch made a ‘mockery’ of Trump’s dismissal of the ‘deep state’ with her testimony: CNN’s David Gregory
CNN contributor David Gregory used his time during a panel segment on the impeachment testimony of Marie Yovanovitch to hammer President Donald Trump for attacking the diplomat on Twitter as she spoke -- then said she had made a "mockery" of his [Trump's] dismissal of the "deep state."
According to Gregory, viewers might think he was naive to believe the president would not get personal and go after Yovanovitch, but that he was honestly stunned.
Marie Yovanovitch bashes The Hill’s faulty reporting that led to Trump’s smear campaign — and impeachment
Marie Yovanovitch knocked down the false claims peddled by The Hill's John Solomon that underpinned President Donald Trump's smear campaign against her.
The website published a Solomon interview in March with Yuriy Vitaliyovych, now the former prosecutor general in Ukraine, who said the then-ambassador had given him a “do not prosecute” list -- a claim pushed by the president, Donald Trump Jr., Rudy Giuliani and Fox News broadcasters.
Yovanovitch and the State Department denied the allegation at the time, and she flatly -- and repeatedly -- denied The Hill's reporting as inaccurate during her testimony before the House impeachment inquiry, and told lawmakers why they were so damaging.
