"They can take me to jail. I don't have many years left anyway."

Enrique Medina is 91 and a Korean War veteran. Trump has sued to take his homestead in Texas. He's also a #RiverWarrior and a #Resister. 1/

Help us beat back the militarization of the Border. Join our fight in the belly of the fascist beast. Please chip in and help fund our struggle. 2/

Enrique Uribe is not alone. Border residents are turning their ire on Trump. Landowners, veterans, mothers, and patriots have created an uprising in south Texas against his racist border wall. We will make him pay.

As I've struggled against the government for the past 3 years in legal defense of separated children so many of you have asked what you could do to help rescue the children. You lifted fighters like @RAICESTEXAS, @AlOtroLado_Org, @ACLU, @EveryLastOne1, @JusticeInMotion,...1/
You lifted us with your voices, your funding, your activism. Thousands of separated & interned children have been rescued because of this #Resistence, & are held once again in the arms of their families. Thousands are still being held.

And so I plead to you once again...2/
Let's finish this job in one f'n swoop. Let's bring down the supremacists raining fascist cruelty on children. To so many of you who have asked "how can I help the children". Now is your chance to make all the difference.

Because of #FamilySeparaton my client lost her 2 young daughters (6 and 8) to ICE, after BP wrenched them from their screaming mother. It took a trip to federal court to reunite them. 1/
Because of #FamilySeparation my 8 yo client was stranded in the US, alone without family or friends, with no voice, in an internment camp, after his father was deported without him. It took a trip to federal court to have his father returned to the US & reunited with his son. 2/
Because of #FamilySeparation my client was deported without her 6 yo son. It took a trip to federal court, and a trip to Guatemala, before we could deliver the child to his mother. 3/

A call to action from the border to the heatland. All stops are off as the @NoBorderWallLTX takes its GOTV efforts nationwide, rallying young Americans to vote against the militarization of the border. Now is the time.
Let's GOTV - together. 1/
Help us bring out a sea of young faces to the polls & end the cruelty along the border. The family separations, the land confiscation, the walls security zones, razor wire, floodlights, drones, choppers, military patrols. The #Resistance needs you now.
We aim to flip AZ and TX. The youth vote is our target. Music, art, activism, persistence, passion, family, desire, are our sticks of dynamite with which we'll blow the legs off the tyranny raining on the border.

Why do we build the wall?
My children, my children
Why do we build the wall?

Why do we build the wall?
We build the wall to keep us free
That's why we build the wall
We build the wall to keep us free

How does the wall keep us free?
My children, my children
How does the wall keep us free?

How does the wall keep us free?
The wall keeps out the enemy
And we build the wall to keep us free
That's why we build the wall
We build the wall to keep us free
Who do we call the enemy
My children, my children?
Who do we call the enemy?

Who do we call the enemy?
The enemy is poverty
And the wall keeps out the enemy
And we build the wall to keep us free
That's why we build the wall

BP led out-of-town Trump Train demonstrators intent on defacing our "Defund the Wall" street mural, and on humiliating our community were met by Laredo's finest.

"The appraisal district estimates that Neuhaus owes $434,773 in 2020 property taxes for the two plats of riverfront property on which he allowed Fisher Sand & Gravel to build the private border wall in January."

A private border wall hatched by grifters

This is an eye popping increase from the estimated $8,000 in taxes that Neuhaus, a sugar planter, previously paid. Yet, "(t)he assessed amount was based on border wall miles & structure that had been built as of Jan. 1, which was only 38% of the project that was later completed."
That means Neuhaus is looking at next year's tax bill of over $1M. Essentially, his collaboration with Bannon & We Fund the Wall grifters has rendered his land worse than worthless - it's now a $1M liability. Which is what happens when you publicly boast that $42M was spent...
