Trump Supporters Laughed Out Of Tucson City Council Meeting After Anti-Immigrant Rant





A pair of Trump supporters were laughed out of a Tucson City Council meeting in Tucson, Arizona as they ranted against immigrants and proposed plans to designate Tucson as the state’s first so-called “sanctuary city” on Tuesday, reported KVOA-TV.

A man and woman donning gear supporting President Trump interrupted a meeting Tuesday as City Council members deliberated the approval of a voter-sponsored initiative on the upcoming November ballot which would officially make Tucson an immigrant-friendly “sanctuary city.”

Newsweek notes:

Tucson first declared itself an “immigrant-welcoming city” in 2012 but now thousands of residents have banded together to demand the city officially enforce “immigrant-friendly” initiatives through a move being contested by the local Republican Party. The pro-Trump couple present at Tuesday’s meeting made it clear they were among the opponents of the Tucson “sanctuary city” vote.

The couple held up a pair of signs reading, “Respect Our Laws or We Will Deport You! No Sanctuary For Criminals!” and “Stop Rewarding, Start Deporting!”




The woman in a “Make America Great Again” red trucker hat yelled into her phone and at pro-immigration attendees.

“You’re in direct violation of the oath you took to the United States Constitution. You’re in direct violation of our laws,” they shouted.

“Follow our laws or go home,” the MAGA hat-wearing woman yelled. “The city does not change or defy our immigration laws, it’s Congress’ job to change immigration laws.”

“Oh, shut up!” several people can be heard yelling back at the woman.

A man seated near the couple was recorded by KVOA-TV slapping his knees and laughing at the pair as others booed.




The woman continued to shout as an officer escorted her and her companion out of the room.

“We are living in turbulent times, the national rhetoric is increasingly violent, racist, xenophobic and anti-immigrant. Being an immigrant-friendly city is no longer good enough,” said one Tucson resident who spoke at the meeting.
