and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foun- dation on such principles and organizing its pow- ers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect [sic] their Safety and Happiness.” Do these texts divide people into categories of being worthy of these pursuits? Do these pas- sages separate us based on color, income level and ability? Of course women have since been declared

to be equal to men. I shouldn’t even have to say that…

Some would have us believe that “foreign-

ers” or outsiders are a threat to these proclama- tions. I don’t have the space to get into that fully, but I cannot state strongly enough that we need immigrants! It is unfathomable to me that human beings can categorize other human beings as not deserving of the same fair treatments. How anyone can accept into their heart and mind that a person deserves to have their child ripped from their arms, to both be locked up in a prison, espe- cially a seperate prison, is beyond my capacity of thought. The following is all documented and really

happening! It will seem so extreme that it ap- pears to be made up, but it’s not, so bear with me! Imagine you were so desperate to survive that you walked for thousands of miles to get to a country where it is legal to seek asylum. You go to the proper checkpoint to apply. Your child is taken from you. You are put in one prison and your child is put in another. You lose contact. Your child is fed rotting food, made to sleep on the floor, not given medicines or medical care, made to drink out of the toilet, abused, molested, lost to sex traffickers or adopted out to other fam- ilies. Anyone who isn’t appalled by this reality is beyond my understanding or tolerance. But I do understand that hate and fear are being stoked by others with an agenda. We need to think for ourselves! Don’t let others turn you into someone who rationalizes this treatment of human beings that have all the same fears, hopes and feelings as you.

Border Prison. Some of the immigrants, who we are being

manipulated into fearing and fighting, are re- sponsible for many of the inventions and innova- tions that we would never want to live without. Others do the jobs most of us cannot and will not do. Both categories of these people come from all around the world. The need for food is necessary for our basic sur- vival! The immigrants from North, Central and South America are the backbone of our food sys- tem! Mexicans comprise 70% of our farm labor- ers. They are not “taking our jobs,” unless we work in the fields. They spend up to fourteen hours a day, six days a week in the hot sun and cold of winter, as they plant, maintain and har- vest our food. That is 84 hours per week! They might get an hour off each day for lunch. They do not get overtime pay and rarely get any insur- ance, and only if they are documented. They get zero benefits, welfare, Medicaid or any govern- ment assistance if they are undocumented! But they pay a lot of taxes they’ll never collect on. This job is ranked within the top three most dan- gerous. They are exposed to toxic chemicals, po- tentially deadly farm equipment, extreme temperatures and working conditions and back- breaking work. Ever wonder why we have so many E. coli outbreaks? E. coli is spread through human feces. The farm workers often are not even given bathroom facilities or breaks to use them. They are being forced to defecate in the fields where food is grown! I can guarante that everyone reading this wants to eat! I also have a very strong suspicion that
