Dozens were arrested after a “Million MAGA March” in Washington D.C. this weekend including a BLM activist and registered child sex offender, Kenneth Wayne DeBerry.

DeBerry was arrested for allegedly assaulting people. He was charged with aggravated assault, inciting violence and being a felon in possession of a gun.

During the day the rally was peaceful but as the march continued into the night, leftist counter-protesters turned out in opposition. Violence began to escalate and more than 20 people were arrested, according to local reports.

Twitter videos appear to show anti-Trump demonstrators harassing Trump supporters by burning their Trump hats and flags, punching people in the streets and even reports of stabbing.

Authorities said one male demonstrator was stabbed multiple times and sustained injuries that were not considered life threatening.

A variety of charges, including assault and weapons possession, were filed against those arrested, officials said. Two police officers were injured and several firearms were recovered by police.

Michigan is asking its residents to help with the mess its leadership created and house migrants in their own homes. The state Department of Labor and Economic Development said volunteers who participate must commit for at least 90 days as part of the refugee support program.

“Programs like the Welcome Corps advance the Office of Global Michigan’s mission to make Michigan the home for opportunity for our immigrant, refugee and ethnic communities,” said Poppy Hernandez, Global Michigan Director and Michigan’s Chief Equity and Inclusion Officer. “Expanded refugee resettlement pathways empower more Michiganders to support our state’s growing refugee population and build a more welcoming and inclusive Michigan for all.”

The migrants will come from Cuba, Haiti, Nicaragua and Venezuela, all points of origin where many have been hoping to apply for asylum at the U.S.-Mexico border.

Fox News reports “cities like New York and Chicago have also dealt with issues related to migrants committing crimes, as well as pushback from residents who have voiced anger and concern over the influx. Migrant shelters in those cities have largely been full, forcing officials to come up with ways to safely house the migrants.”

Housing and shelter is our most pressing need and become a sponsor family,” said Massachusetts Lt. Governor Kim Driscoll.
