Ultimate #WalkAway- DACA “Dreamer” now wants the wall

Published

on

Saturday, Populist Wire announced our first Citizen Journalist contribution from a Mexican-American supporter of Donald J. Trump.

“I am excited to share this story with Populist Wire readers, ” said Yvette Muñoz.

Populist Wire found Yvette at a President Trump rally, with her Pepe Doll and Info Wars shirt, and wrote about  her HERE and HERE.

She has agreed to be a guest contributor to Populist Wire on things that matter to Hispanic Conservatives, this is her point of view and we are thrilled to give her voice a platform.

We are very happy to also provide an outlet for her cousin to have his opinion counted amoung all of the recent talk of what DACA  “Dreamers want”.

He wants the wall, this is his story:

The Wall: A Perspective from a Dreamer Who Supports Borders

Yvette Muñoz

“Build the wall!” We often hear this phrase that bothers many people on the left. Why is it so controversial to have a wall on our southern border or even mention this so-called wall? On June 16, 2015, Donald J. Trump officially launched his Presidential campaign announcing he would build a wall on our southern border between Mexico and the United States if he were elected President. He also mentioned that Mexico would be the one to pay for the wall, which makes anyone skeptical of such a statement. Trump informed the nation why we need borders: drugs, rapists, and many other types of criminals and criminal behaviors have been flowing into our country for decades through our southern border. Many Mexicans took offense after listening to Trump’s declarations on the people coming illegally through Mexico. If the shoe fits, wear it! I did not take offense because he spoke the truth and most importantly, I am not a criminal or criminal sympathizer.

With all the propaganda being shoved down our throats it was almost impossible to understand the true intentions of Trump towards those who reside in this country without the legal documentation. Being a first generation U.S. citizen I too have family in this country who are undocumented and some who happen to be DACA recipients. I had family members end any sort of communication with me after I came out of the closet. No, I do not speak of coming out as a lesbian; I am merely speaking of coming out as a Trump supporter in the Mexican community which is worse. One of my close cousins, Roberto, who happens to be a DACA recipient, was in shock after finding out that I had voted for President Trump. I remember his words of agony as he repeated to me, “you betrayed me.” Knowing the truth behind all the fake news from the mainstream media, I burst into laughter and responded, “I am doing this for your own good.” Unable to debate at the time and explain to him my reasons for supporting Trump Roberto cut communication with me. Not only did he distance himself, but a few weeks later he sent me a message through Facebook messenger letting me know that he was willing to hurt me for betraying him. Of course I felt heart broken and scared that he might injure me or worse, kill me, but I did not fully believe he was capable of any violent actions towards me.

In December of 2016 I decided to reach out to Roberto and asked him to sit with me so we could speak in person instead. Unlike some of my other cousins, Roberto accepted my invitation for a civil dialog. It took lots of patience and time to sit with him and debunk every single piece of fake news he was concerned about but just like that, his eyes opened and we were able to resume the relationship we had before our political differences. I was back to being his cheerleader every Thursday night when I joined him at his soccer games where people would give me dirty looks simply for being a Trump supporter- La Malinche, as many Mexicans call me.

There’s not a single DACA recipient in my community that I know of who supports President Trump or that has any tolerance towards any Trump supporters such as myself. On the other hand, Roberto is the only reasonable Dreamer who’s conservative and willing to listen to anyone. It is truly an amazing phenomenon that a Dreamer from Chicago is capable of waking up to reality and seeing the truth behind the mainstream media. I know that liberal news networks will never give a platform to someone like Roberto simply because he has logic and the capacity to be a critical thinker.

Soon after the Populist Wire gave me the opportunity to be a guest writer, I immediately took the chance to expose my cousin’s story to the world. I contacted Roberto and asked him for an interview. Without hesitation, he accepted my invitation to show people that it is possible to be a Dreamer and support President Trump at the same time.

On May 21, 2018 Roberto answered a few questions that would help others understand his situation in this country. At the age of 14 Roberto left behind all possessions, sold a few cows to pay for the coyote (a person on the Mexican side of the border that helps people cross illegally), and crossed through the southern border illegally with his brother in order to pursue a better life. Roberto’s expectations of the United States were not as he thought. Like many people who come to America, my cousin thought money grew on trees and life would be much easier. The reality is you have to work for your money like anywhere else. The main thing that concerned Roberto was whether or not he was going to suffer hunger like he did back in Mexico, but he realized that was not the case in this country.

With the immigration crisis and Democrats claiming ICE separates families I had to ask an obvious question: “Which country do you believe separates more families, the U.S.A. or Mexico?” Roberto replied, “The Mexican government separates more families than the US government, that’s why we come here. The hunger, the corruption…it’s terrible living that way.” He continued, “I miss the family we left behind in Mexico but we were hungry and desperate to even be concerned with what was left behind.”

Roberto expressed his concerns regarding the daily crime that goes on along the border. Not only are innocent people being used as “mules” (people that are being forced to illegally transport drugs and/or money across the borders) to cross their merchandise, but human trafficking occurs on a daily basis as well. Coyotes behave like pimps when they decide to change the price owed without notification and force women to prostitute themselves in order to collect the new amount due. Roberto also spoke on behalf of the wall: “I don’t understand why anyone would oppose a wall that will help reduce these issues and minimize crime overall. Isn’t that why we have walls and doors in our homes, so we can know who comes in and out?” Roberto added, “It seems to me that a wall is more of a safety project and not a racist act, as the news wants us to believe.”

Roberto continued our discussion and offered his opinion on sanctuary cities: “I used to believe sanctuary cities were put in place to protect the good illegals who came to work, but in reality, it’s a big joke. Sanctuary cities protect illegal criminals like the man who tried to rape my three younger sisters and used to domestically abuse my older sister. This man will not be deported, he will be sent to jail and released after he completes his sentence. I can’t understand why criminals like him are allowed to stay.”

What exactly made Roberto change his mind to go from disliking the President to supporting his policies? “Before Trump, I used to call off work whenever I didn’t feel like going to work. I had no desire to focus on my future. There were times I would stay in bed the whole day.” Roberto continued, “Trump is like the strict father I didn’t have. He inspired me to think about my future once again. I like Obama because he gave the DACA recipients a social security so we can work, but I like Trump because he is bringing back jobs.” Roberto is currently working on starting his own pallet business.

Roberto was asked “If you could send a message to other Dreamers, what would that message be?” Roberto started with a straightforward answer: “Hey, I want to help Trump build the wall.” He proceeded to say “Trump said in his State of the Union speech the deal he is trying to make with Democrats: Trump will give a 10-12 year path to citizenship to DACA recipients once Democrats approve the budget for the wall.” Robert has no problem with this process because it means the DACA recipients can apply for legal residence as soon as the wall is built, which it will finally allow those under DACA to travel the world and not be trapped only in USA, as Obama imprisoned them. “I did not know who Chuck Schumer was until I got involved with politics and I would like to send him a message: Build the wall.”

For this interview we had to protect this Dreamer’s identity for safety reasons. Thank you so much to the Populist Wire for allowing Roberto to have a platform to send his message.  He hopes he reaches other DACA recipients and helps them change their views towards the President. Roberto tried talking to other Dreamers in person but his message has been rejected before. Hopefully this time the outcome is different.

Former Black Panther Helped this Former Hippie Walk Away

Published

on

Sunday, Kathy Martinez calls herself a “Civil Rights hippie”. She was active with her generation supporting Rev.Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s Civil Rights movement. Martinez spoke exclusively with Populist Wire about her motivation for posting a video testimony on the Walk Away page and about her feelings for the modern day Democrat Communist movement.

Originally from a Communist country, Kathy says it makes her cry to see what the Democrats have done to the Civil Rights dreams of those past fighters.

“We wanted everyone to be equal. The Democrats have everyone in boxes with identity politics. It is horrible,” said Martinez.

“That is not anything close to what we marched for,” Martinez said.

“The Democrats do not understand what they are tearing apart over here. They don’t understand that America is the last free beacon of hope in the world. Where will people like my family run to escape real persecution,” she said.

KATHY MARTINEZ WALKS AWAY:

Deplorable Deb encouraged me to speak and use my voice, Mason Weaver was the first to open my eyes, and Walk Away Campaign gave me the platform to pull it all together,” she told Populist Wire. Deplorable Deb is a popular Vlogger on social media.

Mason Weaver is a popular public speaker and frequent guest on Fox News.

Enter another activist: @1Citizenpundit has been active in spreading the message of the Walk Away Campaign on all of her platforms. She discovered the founder of the video testimonial campaign while doing research for her radio program in New York. She “sounded the bell” and told others.

“I just knew this idea of using videos was going to be awesome,” Maria Albanese, @1CitizenPundit, told Populist Wire.

Populist Wire was then instrumental in promoting the Walk Away Campaign movement and video testimony platform early, when alerted by @1CitizenPundit. Albanese was the first Conservative to reach out to the founder of WalkAway Campaign, according to his introduction of her on her own Walk Away video testimony.

“This is truly a grassroots movement of many people”, Mason Weaver told Populist Wire in an exclusive interview when contacted about his influence on the Walk Away Movement.

“Although the video campaign was helpful, it was Mr. Weaver who really opened my eyes and got me to walk away from the Democrats,” Martinez said. “I respect that man so much,” she said.

“He may be talking mostly to black Americans but he inspired me. I send people Mason Weaver videos and recite what he says to other people. I am a huge fan of his work. He and I understand things these young people don’t about the realities of Communism,” Martinez told Populist Wire.

MASON WEAVER-AMERICA IS WORTH FIGHTING FOR

“I am glad to help. I am happy my past work and books on leaving the plantation is inspiring others. We want to rescue others. It is like we are in 1987 shouting near the Berlin Wall.. shouting at Gorbachev… tear down this wall that separates us,” Weaver told Populist Wire.

Weaver is a civil rights icon, a public speaker for 35 years, and author of books on Amazon on the topic of walking away from the Democrats.

“Just walk away,” Weaver says.

THIS IS WHY:

“Stay Right or Be Left”, says Weaver.

WEAVERS WALK AWAY TESTIMONY:

More Gun Control Is Not The Answer

Published

By

As an American college student I am a member of the most diverse and technologically advanced generation in the history of the world, and that is pretty cool. As a conservative millennial I feel my voice is often not heard.

I believe screaming for more “gun control” is not the answer. I want politicians on both sides of the aisle to stand up and admit the government failed on all levels during the Parkland shooting.

I am thankful U.S. Rep. Rod Blum had the strength to admit the federal and local governments failed. There was no oversight, and that needs to be addressed. I understand the need and want to feel safe at my school, but the cyclical narrative of disarming innocent civilians is not the answer. It is not only unconstitutional, but it won’t solve the problem. Bad guys who want to do harm will find a way to make it happen. It is intellectually dishonest to attack the weapon and not the criminal.

I have made the conscious decision to not walk out of school to make my voice heard, but to walk up to students who are having a hard time and be a positive impact.

It is time we enforce laws already on the books and increase public safety by updating state compliance when it comes to background checks.

Place Term Limits On Legislative Branch

Published

on

By

The founding fathers did not intend for our elected officials to make careers out of public office. We have term limits for our President and for good reason; we should apply those same principles to the Legislative Branch. There are politicians that have been in office longer than Ive been alive.

Congressman Rod Blum established the first ever Term Limits Caucus in Congress and the support from other members to bring a vote to the floor to term limit themselves is disgracefully unpopular. If members aren’t willing to stand up next to Congressman Blum and put an end to Congressional jobs for life, we ought to vote them out.
