Those who were allowed in described a combative encounter with promises of many more arrests and deportations to come.

5. Because they know Faux News would have described it as a "Hispanic riot"

Complete with Michelle Malkin or Dnesh D'Souza expounding on how "violence and rioting is inherent in the Hispanic culture, and this is what this administration is trying to fight."
