In Tucson, Arizona, a border patrol agent called migrants, “mindless, murdering savages” and other slurs before running into one with his truck.  The agent, Matthew Bowen, has been charged with vehicular assault.

Prosecutors found dozens of text messages as evidence of Bowen’s violent attitude toward migrants.  Two weeks before this incident, Bowen called migrants “disgusting subhuman shit unworthy of being kindling for a fire.

When another agent asked Bowen what oil he used for frying human being, Bowen replied, “Peanut Oil for frying Guatemalans, which should be cooked till they are crispy.”

His attorney said Bowen’s sentiments are just “part of the agency culture.”

I see the mistake made by prosecutors in not charging Bowen with impersonating a human being.

In Los Fresnos, Texas, Immigration authorities left a group of 37 migrant children between the ages of 5 and 12 in parked vans in the blistering Texas summer heat.  The children were waiting to be reunited with their families.  Most of the children spent at least 23 hours in the vans.

One agent called the situation, “Hurried disarray.”  However ICE officers worked their regular shifts, clocking out which the children remained crying in the vans.  When the children finally were driven to meet their parents at the ICE detention center, the children entered the center only to be taken back out because ICE wasn’t’ prepared for them.

Children.  Separated from their parents, suffering from heat stroke, crying, were ignored by men and women who claim to be human beings.

Their attitude and actions come directly from Donald Trump who sets the standards for depravity, violence, hate, degradation, and child cruelty.

Is this who we are?  Is this the best we can do?  Is this how you treat people who are fleeing for their lives?  Who are being raped, robbed, killed, body parts harvested?

I think the old saying goes, “There but for the grace of God go I.”
