Ciudad Juarez, Mexico -- Around 1,500 Mexican protesters formed a human chain Friday along the U.S. - Mexico border. They believe there should be no reason to be prevented from entering the United States without legal process, just because President Trump and millions of Americans want the country to remain sovereign and safe.
"Hand-in-hand we show a national unity that makes no distinction between people," said Senator Armando Rios Piter, as he stood longingly looking over his shoulder at the country he longs to leave, along with other politicos and students. "Mexico is more than a wall."
Si amigo. Mexico is a country you want to leave for a country that is like no other in the world. At least it's like no other country in the world at this time, but it seems as if that's subject to change if the left gets its way.
Mayor Armando Cabada of Ciudad Juarez, said the human chain shows that the people in the border region are more united, not untied, than ever. And if they want to enter the United States, come hell or high water, they're going to do it.
"You can take that to the banco, Gringo Trump," someone with a "Hello Kitty" backpack shouted from the crowd.
Oscar Leeser, the Mexican-born leftist mayor of El Paso, Texas also protested with the others. "We are one city," he lied, obviously not a big fan of the U.S. remaining a sovereign country nor of the U.S. Constitution which he swore to uphold.
Leeser was born in Chihuahua, Mexico and came to the U.S., legally, when he was nine.
A human chain was also planned in the spicy little town of Tijuana.
Construction of the promised wall by President Trump is slated to begin within months.
