Jeebus, people. Just ... Jeebus.
Protesters carrying "Return to Sender" and "Go home non-Yankees" signs faced off with immigrant rights activists Tuesday in a small Arizona town after a sheriff said a bus filled with Central American children was on its way. [...]

Anger has been spreading in the town of Oracle since Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu warned residents last week that immigrant children from Central America caught crossing the border illegally would be placed at the Sycamore Canyon Academy in Oracle. Protesters were hoping to mirror demonstrations in Murrieta, California, when immigrants were taken there recently.

"We are not going to tolerate illegals forced upon us," protester Loren Woods said.

The bus filled with refugee children never appeared, possibly because Sheriff Paul Babeu was making shit up. But the crowd remained at the ready:
At one point, several buses approached the protesters, driving east. The crowd started to confront the buses but the protesters were told the buses were carrying kids from the YMCA.

"How do we know it's the YMCA?" a few protesters shouted, but the buses were allowed to continue east on the highway.

You do realize you're monsters, right? Horrific human beings? Empty, soulless shells with tan lines? Forget amnesty for the refugee kids, it's time to work out a straight one-to-one trade. America gets those kids on that bus, if it ever comes, and Guatemala gets you. You'll love it there, it's got lots and lots of guns.
