"They Come To America" is a film made by Dennis Lynch that shares an untold story about illegal immigration and how it is hurting the United States.
Local protesters showed up holding signs at Frederick Community College Thursday night to say they disagreed with a movie being shown.
"They Come To America" is a film made by Dennis Lynch that shares an untold story about illegal immigration and how it is hurting the United States. The movie was co-hosted by Sheriff Chuck Jenkins and County Commissioner's President Blaine Young.
Jeannette Bartelt was against showing the movie and said we need immigrants to do the jobs that americans do not want to do.
"I would like to see all of the lilly-white get out in the fields and pick the crops and go and do the landscaping jobs that no one wants to do. I mean, minimum wage to sweat all day in the fields?" Bartelt said. "Please. It's not going to happen, it's not going to happen. So, you know you can say what you want but the fact of the matter is, is that we need them as much as they need us."
She said she was going to "boo" as the film played last night.
More than 400 people showed up to watch the movie. Protesters held up signs that read "undocumented immigrants, human beings trying to feed their families," "stop the hate" and "love your neighbor."
