About two miles up the hill from Sheridan's lone coffee shop, 123 immigrant detainees are being held inside the nearby Federal Correctional Institution.
Michael Ryan, 70, sips his coffee and wonders why.
"And why do these people get automatically tagged as enemies of the country?" said Ryan, who's sitting in the Bridge Street Coffee House with a group of regulars. "I don’t understand it."
Sheridan is a small, rural town in Yamhill County. In 2016, President Donald Trump won the county with about 48 percent of the vote.
