WATCH: Democratic Maine Senate Candidate Arrested At Child Detention Center

Published

on

Democratic Maine Senate nominee Zak Ringelstein was arrested on Friday in Texas after he refused to leave a detention center for illegal immigrant children where he was trying to bring supplies.

The Press Herald reports:

His campaign later said he was being held on a charge of criminal trespass, a misdemeanor that carries a maximum penalty of six months in jail and a $2,000 fine.

His arrest came after he tried to get into the facility, was rejected, and then kept “persistently asking authorities to be let into a detention facility.”

“I refuse, I refuse, I refuse to stand by as you imprison children and bring more children by the dozens into this facility … it is wrong,” Ringelstein says in the video.

Republican candidate Eric Brakey offered a surprising word of support for Ringelstein in a statement after his arrest.

“I am committed to the rule of law, but I support Zak’s private effort to make these displaced children more comfortable,” Brakey said. “Americans have a tremendous spirit of generosity and I share his compassion. In contrast, Angus King has done nothing to fix our border in his six years in Washington.”

    What a waste of resources this is so staged for his nomination for the DemoRats, they knew that this would happen they probably called the media to cover it, this is not about children it’s about votes, these kids at the age of 8-14 are not like our children they are street smart forming small gangs while they are in custody. The parents knew what they were doing. These people should be protesting in their country on behalf of their children. These children are getting better care than they ever got in their lives and are treated better than our own kids that are homeless in our country. This is not something that Trump did but that Obama carried out and not one member of the media ever said a damn word about, the liberals will stop at nothing to discredit this president, disgraceful.

  • Alberto Quintana says:

    Mediocre men trying to make a name for themselves are taking a wrong state. Here in Texas, we have men, no chicken shit like Peter Fonda, De Blasio and this stupid Senator. It will be fine if this senator go home with a bloody nose.

  • Martin L. Church says:

    One point that they fail to address is the fact that all these kids MAY NOT be with any parent, but are children being TRAFFICKED by the SEX Industry, under the Auspices of being mistreated, by being separated from their supposedly parents. These JERKS in this clip are NOT concerned for these kids, they are more concerned about attempting to make a case for their own benefit, Political purposes for the “TEAR JERKING” Liberals. I’m sure those in charge will be VETTING each and everyone of these kids to ensure that they are NOT being used in the ILLEGAL SEX TRAFFICKING” through out the world.

  • John says:

    So this wannabee wants to feed these kids?! He wants people now to believe this righteous lefty claim that our government will let these children to starve to death!!! What an absolute fool this guy is!!! It’s laughable!!! How long can you democrat SHEEP keep this phoney shit up??? YOU make fools of yourselves.
