Matt Smith’s Newest Video

My good friend and tocallo (Spanish for namesake) Matt Smith recently posted a powerful videon on Youtube.  For anyone looking for an entry point to the oft-confusing world of immigration legislation and the current border wall proposed as its solution, this is 4 minutes and 7 seconds well spent.  Keep up the great work down in Brownsville, Matt!

    That’s not a Spanish word, tocayo. It comes from the Nahuatl (language of the Aztecs + others) word ‘tocaitl’ for ‘name.’ Hence it’s a Mexican expression. http://li.wiktionary.org/wiki/tocaitl Anyway it’s great work you’re doing, please keep it up.

    Thanks for your recent comment. In terms of the pro-migrant online movement, please check out my list of links on the blogroll on the right side of my webpage. Depending on where you live, there should also be a lot of local pro-immigrant groups like the Midwest Human Rights Organization at http://www.midwesthumanrights.org/. For border issues, please visit the very useful and active Texas No Border Wall website at http://notexasborderwall.com/ and the Border Ambassadors website at http://www.borderambassadors.com/

    Please be in touch, keep visiting the site, and continue engaging in the open dialogue here.

    Thank you, Matthew, for all you have done to raise awareness on the problems that have an effect on all who live here in the Rio Grande Valley and all parts North, South, East and West. We are brothers and sisters. Siblings in such a huge family should look after one another. If we don’t do that we have no worth.
