I watched a good documentary today on the Sundance channel called "Wetback". It chronicles the experiences of two people trying to cross the Rio Grande to America, a few Border Patrol officers and a group of border Vigilantes.

There was a story in there told by a Padre, wherein he assisted a mother from Honduras who then left his mission to try and get into America. She called him and said she had been caught by a Border Patrol officer and before being processed she asked him to please take out his gun and shoot her right there. She was crying and she asked that he then call her sons in Honduras and tell them their mother lived her dream and died on American soil. The Border Patrol officer uncuffed her and said, "You're free to go. I never saw you." She was calling the Padre from Chicago.

I was hoping they were going to give the name of the officer, but they didn't. ;) The documentary was well done and told a story from several perspectives.

"In the first place we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the man's becoming in very fact an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag, and this excludes the red flag, which symbolizes all wars against liberty and civilization, just as much as it excludes any foreign flag of a nation to which we are hostile...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."

Wow. I think this says it all. 100 years later and it is exactly on the mark. I wholeheartedly agree. We should plaster this up everywhere (in Spanish of course).

Well pass it on Brother... It's the real deal. It's what it was all originally about...

He was a cool cat.

Too bad there aren't more like him inside DC.
