    Why did Cracker Barrel fire Brad's wife? It's really no one's business, other than Brad's and his wife's, but that hasn't stopped people around the world from demanding answers after a Harrison County, IN, man publicly asked the restaurant chain why his wife Nanette was let go from her job at the Cracker Barrel in Corydon.

ORACLE, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A large group of undocumented children are scheduled to be moved to a boy's ranch near Oracle, Arizona.

Sycamore Canyon Academy is a facility for troubled youths. The federal government has not given a specific time when the buses of children will arrive.

One protest group is already set up in front of the ranch entrance this morning, while another in support of the children has left a church on the south side and is traveling to the ranch.

Officials with Sycamore Canyon Academy say there was an urgent request by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to provide safe and temporary care for the children. The children will be on the campus until they are processed and placed with a sponsor or returned to their home country.

Officials with the ranch have released a statement on the situation. They are not taking a position on the immigration debate in any way. "Our mission is to improve the lives of youth and we will continue to fulfill our mission by focusing on our work with children."

The protest group has already been asked to move their vehicles from blocking the road, according to officials with the Pinal County Sheriff's Office, who are on hand to provide security for the busload of children. PCSO is also saying the academy has increased their staff by 30 people to help with the children.

A spokesperson for the group has said moving their vehicle's does not matter, they will block the bus from entering by standing in the street instead. Though when asked by law enforcement to move they will comply.  The group plans to be on site until at least 7 p.m. this evening.
