You understand the reason they left is that things were so dangerous and dire that they escaped. And now you’re sending them back? They’re trying to rationalize it by saying ‘Oh no, it will be safe’. You’re lying. There’s no safe way to do it. — Allison Kilkenny on today’s Citizen Radio, talking about the child refugees crossing the border.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection has produced this map showing the hometowns of the nearly 35,000 unaccompanied Central American children it apprehended between October 1 and May 14.
According to the one-page document [PDF], Guatemalan child migrants are driven more by poverty, while Salvadoran and Honduran children are driven more by violence.
We assess these reasons vary regionally. For example, many Guatemalan children come from rural areas, indicating they are probably seeking economic opportunities in the US. Salvadoran and Honduran children, on the other hand, come from extremely violent regions where they probably perceive the risk of traveling alone to the US preferable to remaining at home.
EL SALVADOR GUERRILLA WAR DOCUMENTARY by Damon Corrie
Watch this documentary video below if you want to get a pretty good idea about what to expect in a Guerrilla War situation, it is one of the most wide ranging and comprehensive TRUE ‘reality TV” educational tools (for your mental preparation prior to taking the warpath) available.
In this documentary you will see how this little known ‘leftist’ Rebel movement in El Salvador existed, how some Americans helped the oppressed – while their government helped the oppressors, how the Catholic Church adherents of the very noble ‘Liberation Theology’ clergy in that country supported (and died) for what was essentially one of the most just causes of a predominantly Indigenous Amerindian War of Liberation AGAINST the rich upper ‘colonial- settler-descendant class’ ruling elites and their National Security Forces henchmen (often backed by the Government of the USA overtly AND covertly…..a fact we see in just about every country of the western Hemisphere)….and where the ‘colonial-settler-descendant-class’ is not directly playing the ‘ruling master’ role (as they still do in Latin America and North America) – it is always some other race they brought here and trained to live, think and act like them (perfect psychological clones) and replace them in oppressing us – the TRUE landlords of this Hemisphere. The only positive aspect to this later scenario is that the ‘Security Forces’ troops being used to oppress us in defense of the elites outside of Latin American countries are 99.9% of the time not usually people who look like us (unlike Latin America), so combat against them is actually easier to wage (in this ONE sense and in this one aspect) as infiltration into our ranks is harder for our enemies to achieve (they have to depend on traitors from our own race to help them).
