The Mexican/US border has been militarized for decades.
In 1846 the US actually invaded Mexico insanely claiming ” manifest destiny” and half of Mexico was taken.
In 1994 the US began operation “gatekeeper” and a wall was built to cover one third of the 2,000 mile border with Mexico. Since 1994 approximately 11,000 migrants have died in large part as a result of that wall and the fact that the US does not have “a line” where these migrants can qualify for a visa.
In November of 2016 millions of voters did not vote and most that did, voted for Hillary Clinton for President of the United States.
On November 9th 2016, insanity returned as the US and the world woke up to a nightmare named trump.
The world watches in horror and has lost respect for this great nation as trump promotes hate, sexism, racism and xenophobia. Today he declares war with Mexico by ordering national guard troops to our southern border where in the last six years, there has been a dramatic (40%) decrease in unathorized migrant crossings.
San Diego, has for decades (long before operation gatekeeper) been one of the safest large cities in the United States.
Yet new local border patrol chief rodney scott, refuses to let disabled children hug their parents at friendship park and then border patrol lies as to the reason why.
Donald Trump sends the military to an already militarized and safe border and then lies as to the threat of an annual caravan of mostly women and small children, as they seek refuge in Mexico and the US. For my entire life many people have looked to the United as a “shinning light, up on the hill” In spite of the United States many faults, this country was respected and admired by many.
Not any more.
Trump has destroyed what this country was and our children are watching. His most recent action of ordering troops to our southern border, removes all doubt of his hate for Mexico and as former Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson said, trump is “an idiot” NO MAS.
Trump needs to be removed from office,
before he removes all of us, from mother earth.
Peace & Blessings to all,
Enrique & the entire border angels family.
Love, si se puede!
