 Since October 1st 1994 and the launching of Operation Gatekeeper here in San Diego, thousands have died. Nobody knows the exact number 5,000, 6,000, 10,000. How many more?

 These are not numbers, these are human beings ! How dare the US goverment build a wall to kill people. How else can you describe it? It does not keep people out, it does keep people in and IT KILLS PEOPLE. How many more?

 Marco Antonio Villaseñor 5 years old dies along wIth 18 other men (Victoria, Texas, 2003), Guadalupe Beltran burns to death leaves 4 children without a mother (San Diego, California 2007), John and Jane Doe with plus 600 plus unidentified human beings, children, buried at Holtville Cemetery in Imperial Valley. How many more ?

 Today, someone will die, simply because they had a dream. A dream to have food on their table, is that a crime? These human beings, have no “legal” way to get into this country, there is No Statue of Liberty for them, No Ellis Island, No legal way for them to enter country, No line for them to get into. So they are killed by operation keeper. How many more?

 Every day the administration in power tells us, “we must fix the broken immigration system, we will have humane immigration reform” and everyday at least one more human being dies, waiting for the “promised” immigration reform. How many more?
