Supporters in Oracle to welcome children to Sycamore Canyon Academy

Posted: Updated:
TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Supporters of the undocumented children are now in Oracle this morning. The group met at the Southside Presbyterian Church at 5:30 a.m. on Tuesday, and caravanned to Oracle.

The group arrived a short time ago and plan on welcoming the busload of children from the Nogales center.

According to one of the supporters they plan on being a 'peaceful presence' for the children, who may have experienced violence in their home countries. They do not plan on confronting the protesters who are also at the entrance to Sycamore Canyon Academy.

Tucson's supporters are hoping that a larger group from Phoenix will be joining them shortly, swelling their number to almost 100. They also plan on being in the area until 11 a.m. today.
