Armed Second Amendment Supporters Gather At Pro-Refugee ProtestScreen Shot 2017-02-21 at 5.00.58 PM
Last weekend, pro-refugee groups like the ACLU, open border groups, and the local United Nations Association staged a demonstration in Dallas. As marchers chanted, “Say it loud, say it clear, refugees are welcome here,” they were greeted by Second Amendment advocate Trump supporters, most of whom were armed. Approximately 1,700 people were present at the demonstration.
A Muslim leader who was present at the protest said, “We will continue to live without fear. We will not allow cities to be bullied by [people] who don’t understand the Constitution.”
The protest was about a variety of topics, including President Donald Trump’s immigration policies and the recent ICE raids, and even those who support the President’s policies.
One wife of a legal immigrant was there to show support for the President, wearing a Trump t-shirt and toting an “assault” weapon.
“We are just for legal immigration … We want people to come here legally,” Brooke Wang said.
Wang’s husband is a legal permanent resident who emigrated from China. Wang and others were at the demonstration to show Trump support and to defend their constitutional right to carry arms.
