Another Year of Life Under Trump

4 12 2018

Going into 2019 is crazy to imagine. I can’t believe we have survived two years under a Trump presidency. Things are hectic here at the U.S. Mexico border especially at the Tijuana/San Ysidro crossing. We held a protest in support of the migrants from Honduras and other Central American countries.

There has been some backlash against people who live in Tijuana against the migrants due to the challenges that people have faced especially when Trump supports shutting down the border to bring the area to a screeching halt. People are taking out their frustrations on the migrants instead of the real culprit, which is the Trump administration and the Border Patrol.

On the flip side there is hope in Mexico’s new president Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador. It was amazing to see the welcome he received by the native community in Mexico. It was a very symbolic gesture when he was given the Baston de Manda, which if you know anything about the native community, you know this is a huge deal. I know from carrying sacred staffs from Canada to Panama, that these are important gestures.

I was concerned about some of the development projects he mentioned during his speech, but hopefully these can be worked out between the two interest. I could write so much more about the last year, but unfortunately due to my work load this year, I haven’t had time to write at all, so I gotta get back to work, hope my followers are happy, but please leave a comment or send me a message if you want to discuss more, I will respond.
