[OP-ED]: This farmworker sacrificed all for his family. Is he really such a ‘bad hombre’?

 03/14/2017 - 16:25

The immigration debate isn’t about hysteria. It’s about human beings. Along the U.S.-Mexico border, it’s about hard choices that bring heartbreak. It’s about accepting that, as Bruce Springsteen says in his haunting ballad “Sinaloa Cowboys”: “For everything the north gives, it exacts a price in return.”

[OP-ED]: El campesino sacrificó todo por su familia. ¿Es realmente un “hombre malo”?

El debate migratorio no se centra en torno a la histeria. Su centro son los seres humanos. A lo largo de la frontera mexicano-americana, se toman decisiones difíciles que traen dolor. Es cuestión de aceptar, como dice Bruce Springsteen en una evocadora balada titulada “Sinaloa Cowboys”, que: “Por cada cosa que el Norte da, hay que pagar un precio”.

#LosEsclavosNoSonInmigrantes El por qué Ben Carson está equivocado

 03/09/2017 - 03:39

“De eso trata América, una tierra de sueños y oportunidades”, dijo Carson. “Hubo otros inmigrantes que vinieron aquí en el fondo de barcos esclavistas, trabajaron por mucho más tiempo, más arduamente y por mucho menos. Pero ellos también tuvieron el sueño de que algún día, sus hijos, hijas, nietos, nietas, bisnietos y bisnietas pudieran ser prósperos y conseguir la felicidad en esta tierra”.

"That's what America is about, a land of dreams and opportunity," Carson said. "There were other immigrants who came here in the bottom of slave ships, worked even longer, even harder for less. But they too had a dream that one day their sons, daughters, grandsons, granddaughters, great-grandsons, great-granddaughters, might pursue prosperity and happiness in this land.”

That Monday, bullets fired from US soil by Jesús Mesa Jr. - a Border Patrol agent -  ended the life of the teenager Sergio Adrián Hernandez, 15, who was in Mexican territory at the time of his death, and whose case has originated a long litigation that is today in the hands of the Supreme Court of the United States.
