Tens of thousands of migrant children who’ve fled Central America have arrived at the U.S.-Mexico border. The situation is a complex one which has caused people who consider the recent influx of child refugees a threat to the America’s identity.
While many are calling the current situation at the border a humanitarian crisis, some people, like Rep. Louie Gohmert, are taking it in another direction and calling the massive amount of undocumented children at the border an invasion.
Mirroring Murrieta, Calif., the city where all these recent protests against child migrants began, hundreds of U.S. sites are set for anti-immigration demonstrations today and tomorrow, Saturday, July 19. The protests are being advertised as: “The National Day of Protest Against Immigration Reform, Amnesty and Border Surge.” The protests are organized in alliance with tea party groups and Americans for Legal Immigration Pac (ALIPAC), an anti-immigration organization. More than 45 are planned to take place across California alone.
