Unity Celebration planned in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr

Retired neurosurgeon and ex-presidential candidate Ben Carson became social media's punching bag Friday, Jan. 12, as he flanked President Donald Trump at the signing of a proclamation commemorating the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday.

There will be student-led entertainment throughout the day and a basketball tournament featuring school district police officers and students from San Bernardino high schools.

The comments come a day after Trump, in an Oval Office meeting about immigration, referred to a series of nations as "shithole countries" and questioned why the United States was not welcoming more people from Norway as opposed to Haiti, El Salvador and African countries.

"Has Martin Luther King's message of love, unity - has that died?" said Rep. Jovan Melton, an Aurora Democrat who was briefly reprimanded by House Speaker Crisanta Duran for repeating Trump's reported profanity. "It's just a very divided time in our country right now", he said. "Take them out." Anchor babies have always been a favorite talking point of people who complain about non-white immigrants. "Made up by Dems", Trump said on his Twitter account. For instance, Rep. Joe Salazar, D-Thornton, called out unnamed "senators and representatives" for using the word "illegals" to refer to undocumented immigrants, a term that he said dehumanized people. "He said these hate-filled things and he said them repeatedly".
