Texas Muslim Capitol Day marred by anti-Islam protesters
by Lauren McGaughy
They came out by the hundreds from Dallas, San Antonio and Houston, mostly women and children, girls with silver-bowed shoes and pink owl backpacks. They sang the national anthem and prayed.
But less than 20 feet from where the group of Texas Muslims gathered on the steps of the state Capitol in Austin, a small handful of protesters told them exactly how they felt about their visit.
"We don't want you here!" shouted one. Others yelled, "Go home," "ISIS will gladly take you" and "remember 9/11."
