Migrants were found in an 18-wheeler truck this morning on the Southside. A few were pronounced dead, including school-aged children. People fleeing violence and extreme poverty are not criminals. Human beings can never be considered "illegal." We mourn for our familia who was lost in this tragedy, for those lost crossing manmade borders, for all people who need help instead of more oppression. Join us tonight at this vigil.
I woke up to this tragic news that happened down the street from my house, in my neighborhood that I love, the same place that my parents made a home in when they came here from Mexico. It's hard for me to connect to news now, things don't strike me like they used to, I'm desensitized and I hate it. This though, this cuts me deep. I imagine the sacrifices these people made to come here. I think of who they must have left behind, who they planned on returning for later.
They called ICE?! There were school aged children in the truck. They have helicopters looking for escaped folks "in case they need help".
