The People Behind This Hateful Incident Have Been Arrested

Last month, a family in Koyltown Township, Mich., woke up to find a stack of boxes in their driveway emblazoned with the words “Mexicans Suck,” “Take Back America” and “Trump.” The boxes were stacked and taped together to give the appearance of a wall.

The family also found this doll made of balloons near their driveway:
