He gives a historical context for why this is wrong, stating that this is Mexico but was taken away by a war of aggression by the United States.
The borders used to be more open, but it was under Democratic president Bill Clinton who in 1994 started militarizing the border as NAFTA began, and this is a big part of the current anti-Mexican (anti-Latino) movement taking place in Arizona.
He called the banning of books in TUSD “reminiscent of Nazi Germany” and the MAS ban an “international disgrace.
