Trump greeted by thousands of fans
CROSBY – In an area that enjoys a parade, the most attendance to date was to see the presidential motorcade last week come through from Ellington Air Force Base to FM 2100 down Foley Road.
Micki Rush captured the enthusiasm “We are just here to support our American President coming to our little unincorporated area. The visit from President Trump will bring him to the International facility next door.”
One could see M.A.G.A. (Make America Great Again) posters, vehicles, and displays everywhere and on rare occasions some protesters with different opinions. This reporter counted five in a sea of red, pro-Trump supporters. Veterans lined up before the American Legion and the Crosby Rodeo Fairgrounds was having difficulty keeping their area clear for event participants to enter.
The visit went off with hardly any hitches. The speech was delivered and the pipelines are under construction as this is written. A single incident happened on Foley Road about 1/8 mile from the International Learning Center. The moral of the story is never to pull out your firearm to show law enforcement. Unholstering is considered brandishing and is against Texas law. The man that was so proud of his new .380 Cal. had to talk with the Secret Service in cuffs. The good news is the D.A. did not take charges and the man was allowed to go ahead and leave the area.
The numbers of vehicles involved with the presidential motorcade was staggering including motorcycle cops, military vehicles, federal and local law enforcement.
