There is a man in a wheelchair, he cannot walk. He met another man who is pushing him the entire way.
There is a sixteen year old boy who has never been to school due to gang violence in his town, he wants an education. He is traveling alone.
There is a woman who put her two children on a truck. The truck pulled away as she was trying to climb on. She lost her children. A woman along the way noticed the children traveling without their mother and took them into her care. She splits rations intended for her two children amongst all four.
This not a hustle. It’s desperation. And as horrific as it is, it must be better than the life they are leaving because…why else on earth would they do it?
That a president decides to meet this desperation with armed forces leaves me flabbergasted. A constant truth in this administration is that privilege begets entitlement begets contempt for those who are not privileged.
