Senator James Sanders Jr. Condemns Border Guard Use of Whip on Haitian Migrants
|From The Office Of State Senator James Sanders
State Senator James Sanders Jr. said: “I am disgusted and appalled by the video footage showing Border Patrol whipping their reigns at Haitian migrants near the U.S. Mexico border, a clear violation of human rights and domestic and international law.
The last time we saw white men whipping black people in such a public horrendous fashion was during the Jim Crow era and the subsequent separation and dehumanization that followed. Later during the first half of the twentieth century, blacks were separated from whites in ghettos to control their growing population in what is considered American Apartheid. Now, not much has not changed. The images are very much the same.
The actions on that video U.S. Mexico border was not an example of how Americans, particularly those in power, should treat their fellow human beings.
