A citation was issued to the homeowner for having an un-permitted fire while regional burn restrictions were in place. Activists felt a counter spectacle was necessary and had fire blankets, water, extinguishers, and a certified firefighter present during the action.
“The symbolic burning of the Trump effigy to gain attention to the cruel arrests and detentions by ICE agents of immigrant children and families was necessary to try to prevent the greater harm that that will continue if ICE is not stopped. Mover a small fire can be used to prevent a bigger fire and Trump and his underlings are burning up the world – with the Southwest immediately threatened with heat, drought, wildfires and water shortages,” stated Attorney Jeffrey Haas.
