"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.
