Rally standing for wrong thing in border battle
I read your article on the protester group, “Families Belong Together” (Tuesday, TGI Forum). I disagree with what this group has stated.
My wife and I lived in Mexico City for seven years as missionaries. We applied for our visas every six months in order to remain in their country. We obeyed their laws in order to stay in Mexico. This group, “Families Belong Together,” is forgetting to include that the Mexican parents who are crossing our borders are illegal and do not have visas to enter into our country.
While living in Mexico City we had close friends who asked our opinion about crossing over to the United States (without papers). We told them that it is necessary to have proper papers in order to cross the border into the US.
I never heard of parents who crossed the border with their children. Most of whom crossed over were men. When these men arrived they began sending money to their families. Mexican men aren’t stupid! They wouldn’t put their own children in danger.
This group, “FBT,” is insinuating that the Mexican family unit is stupid by placing children in danger when they are protesting. There is a bigger picture here that is not being revealed.
Someone, on the other side of the border, is paying these Mexican men money to cross children into our country in order to undermine our country. What parent would risk their own child’s life by putting them in this kind of danger? Would you or anyone from Kauai do such a thing? The group, FBT, is being played and is also playing our own people here on Kauai!
Question, where is Margie Merryman from and when did she move here from the mainland? We will find out after Saturday what her agenda really is all about.
The fact that this group is continuing to protest shows me they have little regard of their action, which was successful in changing a wrong. This shows only the hatefulness for our president. As a nation we need to move forward — as one nation.
