Toribio S. Treasure Stones. Do I have the strength to follow my religious convictions, even in the face of criminal prosecution like Warren has? The case against Food Not Bombs taught us—after some alarming incidents to the contrary—that feeding the homeless is an act of protected expression, but with migrants the acts of feeding and pointing direction could invoke serious punishment. Do you love your Mexican or Central American neighbor enough to risk prosecution?
Much like we learn about the great lengths Harriet Tubman went to in order to free slaves, or the reflections of a teenager who wrote: How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world. Anne Frank did not survive, but her diary did. The Frank family went into hiding and they received aid from people who risked their lives to help provide them shelter. The people seeking a better life in this country are not criminals for wanting to secure safety for their families, but they are cruelly punished nonetheless.
They risk death in this effort. If captured they are placed in camps where their families are separated, and they lack in the service of basic needs—like soap and toothbrushes. These overcrowded internment camps fail the values of people taught to do good in this world. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly. Trump has told more than 10, lies, and I am sure he has no means to follow through on his declarations of deportations.
I believe it is unlikely those housing needy migrants have much to fear, but I must also acknowledge the risk associated with doing the right thing. Shockingly, 24 detainees have died in ICE custody during the Trump administration;how many more lives have to be lost before we as society force a commitment to honor the traveler? How many of us will rise to occasion of helping in the meantime? How many of us will make excuses for ignoring the children in need? What I see today from the self-professed Americans of faith, however, is supremely disappointing.
There are concrete steps we can all take. The first is to insist that we stop tolerating dishonesty in all of its political forms. Next we can demand accountability from those in power whose monumental failures have produced this calamity. It is our responsibility to vote in replacements who will not further these crimes against humanity. We can also remember the supreme value of acts of love and kindness and look for ways to offer simple hospitality, human empathy. It is not necessary that anyone take on more risk than they feel safe with, but we all should speak out for those who do. Anne Frank was right; we can start making a better world right now.
