By Paul Ingram ORACLE Ariz. (Reuters) - Waving U.S. flags and playing patriotic music, dozens of people protested in southern Arizona on Tuesday against the arrival of undocumented immigrant children for processing at a center near the border before being sent home. In a scene reminiscent of similar protests in California, about 65 demonstrators gathered near the small town of Oracle to complain that the federal government's response to a surge of new arrivals from Central America was putting their communities at risk. Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu, who has been a sharp critic of the Obama administration's border policy, had said about 40 immigrant children were to be bused to an academy north of Tucson, even though residents did not want them there. "We don't need an additional issue here when we have our hands full with drug smugglers and others who pass through our county," Babeu told the demonstrators.
