Sanders woos Arab Americans during Dearborn visit
by Samer Hijazi
"When he talks about shutting the door of America to Muslims, all he's talking about is scapegoating minorities," Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders told a diverse crowd of local residents at the UAW Local 600 hall in Dearborn. "We will not accept that bait."
Sanders' hard-hitting words against Republican front runner Donald Trump was one of several moments that drew a large reaction from attendees during his campaign stop on Monday, February 15.
A significant number of Arab American residents from around metro Detroit attended the event. They were among hundreds of Sanders' supporters who waited hours in a line that wrapped around the UAW building in the Southend.
