Armed Citizens Gather in Michigan, Protest 'Invasion' of Illegal Immigrants

On July 14 citizens carrying American flags, Gadsden flags, and signs saying, “Seal Border” marched through Vassar, Michigan, in protest of the “invasion” by illegal immigrants and plans to house Central American children there.

Some of those who took part in the march also carried “semi-automatic rifles.”

According to the Detroit News, “the demonstrators… marched one mile, from city hall to a social services facility that would house the young undocumented immigrants.”

Tamyra Murray organized the protest. She said, “We must act. We must save America and stand up to this invasion.” Building contractor Matt Krol participated in the march, saying, “We the people are standing up and saying we will not allow illegal immigration.”

This marks the second such protest in as many weeks in Vassar. 

In addition to the sign about sealing the border, other protesters carried signs that said, “Go Home. We’re Full,” and “It’s the law. Deport.”

On July 7 Breitbart News reported an 80 percent drop in deportations under President Obama compared to George W. Bush.
