FBI Surround Malheur Refuge as Nevada Assemblywoman
FBI Agents are surrounding the four remaining occupants of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in an ongoing situation that is being live streamed by activist Gavin Seim, who is on the phone with them.
The situation sound tense with the occupants saying they will not surrender.
Seim connected them with Nevada assemblywoman Michele Fiore, who said she has landed in Portland, and is trying to resolve the situation nonviolently.
But the occupants remain defiant, saying they will only leave the refuge if the FBI promises not to arrest them, but that is unlikely to happen.
They are also blaming the FBI for allowing Hillary Clinton run for president, allowing Muslims to enter the country and allowing the Federal Reserve to increase interest rates.
Listen to the situation in the video below, which now has more than 31,000 listeners, but is increasingly rapidly.
The four remaining occupants are David Fry, 27, of Blanchester, Ohio; Jeff Banta, 46, of Elko, Nevada; and Sean Anderson, 48, and Sandy Anderson, 47, a married couple from Riggins, Idaho, according to NBC News.
They say they will not shoot first, but will shoot even if the feds start shooting tear gas. Earlier, one of the occupants mentioned he had molotov cocktails on hand.
And they continue to make references that the FBI is going to kill them, even though they say they have not broken any laws.
Fiore has been on the phone with Seim and the occupants for about an hour, frequently leading them in prayer in an attempt to reduce their stress levels, which is increasing by the moment.
Fiore is still about 300 miles away from the refuge.
UPDATE: 10:50 p.m. One of the occupants is saying they will walk out of the refuge Thursday morning after Fiore and the Reverend Franklin Graham arrive.
But Sandy Anderson is saying she will not walk out.
