IMPEACH

North Texans unhappy about the border crisis are letting their voices be heard at protests Friday and Saturday.

Dozens of people gathered in downtown Dallas to protest Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins’ work to bring 2,000 undocumented immigrant children to the county for care, while protesters in Fort Worth took to the street in front of several government agencies on West 7th Street.

Those protests were among 10 planned in North Texas and hundreds being held across the country, as part of a nationwide response to the undocumented immigration surge and what opponents call immigration reform amnesty.

At the Dallas protest, people who support Judge Jenkins’ efforts came out to the same block to counter-protest. Supporters of the plan to take in the immigrant children said it’s our human responsibility to care for the children.

Jenkins released a statement in response to the demonstration.

“I am focused on working with our community, faith leaders and federal partners on helping traumatized children in crisis move from detention on the border to compassionate care here,” he said. “Leaders can empower grace and mercy or incite fear and anger, but it’s the community that responds. Dallas County residents have overwhelmingly chosen compassion.”

The protests — launched by Make Them Listen, Americans for Legal Immigration PAC and Overpasses for America — will continue Saturday.
