U.S./Mexico Border – Sunday, November 25, 2018 – “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”– Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The images of children, women and individuals choking in tear and pepper gas are terribly painful. The overt show of state-sponsored violence and use of intimidation is a new low for the U.S. government and one that is ultimately financed by tax payer’s money.
We call on our allies and people in the United States to take action by calling your local representatives and express their outrage about the use of U.S. tax dollars to finance human rights violations, and repress peaceful migrants to deter them from accessing that which the current legal system already affords them — the right to ask for protection, to seek asylum.
