PHOENIX — Two women known for uttering anti-Muslim slogans at Phoenix-area political events are to be arraigned this week on third-degree burglary and aggravated criminal damage for entering the Islamic Community Center of Tempe and removing items.

Maricopa County Superior Court records show that the women, Tahnee Gonzales and Elizabeth Dauenhauer, were arrested Thursday, March 15, after they published a Facebook Live video, about 20 minutes in length. In the video, one of the women films the other as she is walking around the mosque property with three children, removing posters, brochures and other materials.

The women are heard in the video ranting against Islam and Muslims as “devil-Satan worshippers” who “hate America.”

Their arraignment has been set for Thursday.
