Things didn't go well. There were no refugee children arriving, although the crowd came close to accosting a bus full of young YMCA campers in their quest to yell at busloads of refugee children, and that in turn to one of the better on-camera exchanges any of us will see this year.
KWASMAN: I was able to actually see some of the children in the buses, and the fear in their faces ... this is not compassion.He's no Louie Gohmert, but credit where credit is due: That's pretty damn stupid. The unedited footage might be even better.
REPORTER: That fear on the faces of migrant children Kwasman told me he saw in Oracle. There's just one problem. Those weren't migrant children on the yellow school bus. They were YMCA campers from the Marana school district.
REPORTER: Do you know that was a bus with YMCA kids?
KWASMAN: That's ... they were sad too!
REPORTER: (Reporters on the scene saw the children laughing and taking pictures on their iPhones.)
KWASMAN: I apologize, I didn't know. I was leaving when I saw them.
