Fitzwire--Arizona Republican congressional candidate Adam Kwasman, who mistook a YMCA bus for a school bus full of migrant children, today is calling for the inspection of all YMCA buses by the U.S. Border Patrol.
Yesterday Kwasman was at a staged anti-immigrant rally hoping to block a bus full of undocumented children from proceeding to temporary housing when a bus appeared. Excited by the opportunity to boo at small children, Kwasman tweeted a photo of what was later discovered to be a YMCA bus. “Bus coming in. This is not compassion. This is the abrogation of the rule of law. I had no idea how fair-skinned those Guatemalan kids are.”
“I was able to actually see some of the children on the buses and the fear on their faces. How that fear got there I don’t know,” Kwasman said as he grinned, standing at the center of an armed pot-bellied mob waving flags, placards and shouting epithets." On the upside I have to tell you it's fun to instill fear. I got picked on constantly when I was a kid. It's fun to be on the other side."
If elected to Congress, Kwasman promised to lead the charge on the inspection of all YMCA summer camp buses.
