Deplorable, immoral bitter clingers.

Carrying homemade signs with messages including “Secure Our Border” and “Build the Wall 2019”, more than 50 people endured temperatures in the 20s Saturday afternoon in Sterling Heights to show their support for President Trump’s demand for funding for construction of a steel wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.
The rally was held along the east side of northbound Van Dyke Avenue at the Marketplace Court Mall. Participants drew support from horn-honking motorists.
The event was organized by Jazmine Early, a member of the Sterling Heights/Utica Republicans, with help from Michigan 100 Percent Fed Up and support from the Michigan Trump Republicans.
“My message to the American people is, ‘Wake up!’” Early said. “This is a country that is blessed. This is a country that we have to fight to protect.”
Early, who is from Colombia, said she came to the United States in 2000 at age 30 for a vacation. While here, she met the man who didn’t want her to leave, convinced her to stay and married her. Early and her husband, Douglas, have a 15-year-old son.
“The people coming here illegally are building blocks for Communists,” Early said. “It hurts me that minorities are being used by Communists for political gain.”
Organizers calling themselves “Women for the Wall” put together the rally after a similar event was held last month in Bloomfield Hills. Early attended that event, felt inspired and wanted to hold one in Macomb County.
That first event also was planned by the Michigan Trump Republicans and Michigan 100 Percent Fed Up and drew approximately 300 people, said Patty McMurray, co-founder of the latter group.
Early, who said her grandmother was Black-Colombian and her mother Native Indian-Colombian, said she wants to make her point from the perspective of Hispanics like her who entered the U.S. legally.
“People are calling us racists,” said she of critics opposed to Trump’s request to Congress for $5.7 billion for the border wall.
