Video footage from the U.S.-Mexico border shows Texans heckling and shouting over the speech of liberal race activist Al Sharpton, who traveled to the state to complain about unproven claims of Border Patrol brutality against illegal immigrants from Haiti. Texans repeatedly Sharpton to “get out of Texas.”
“Kids are being sedated at the U.S. border, why are you not being a voice for the children, why are you stoking racism where it doesn’t exist?” protesters asked a visibly uncomfortable Sharpton, who repeatedly turned his head and craned his neck to look behind himself as the jeering continued.
“Why are you coming and trying to provoke violence? Why are you here advocating for violence? Why are you here advocating for violence? Del Rio is not a racist city, Del Rio is a loving, caring community,” one onlooker shouted. “We don’t want your racism in Texas, get outta here. Nobody wants your racist nonsense in Del Rio. You’re a racist, nobody wants you in Texas! Why are you not a voice for the children?” watch
