On Friday, about 1500 Mexicans formed a human chain along the border to protest President Donald Trump’s planes to build a border wall between the United States and Mexico.
From Los Angeles Times:
“Hand in hand we show a national unity that makes no distinction between people,” said Senator Armando Rios Piter as he stood with other politicians and students along the Rio Grande near Ciudad Juarez. “Mexico is more than a wall.”
Armando Cabada, the mayor of Ciudad Juarez, said the human chain showed that people in the border region were more united than ever.
The mayor of El Paso, Texas, just across the border from Ciudad Juarez, also took part in the protest. “We are one city,” Oscar Leeser said.
We are not “one city,” we actually have borders and a human chain isn’t going to stop us from enforcing them.
We as a country have a right to define our border and require legal immigration.
What’s the response to their human chain?
Work will be starting on the wall in a few months.
President Donald Trump has shown the importance he placed on it by signing an executive order to build it the first week he was in office.
