RACIAL PROFILING-in Bracketville, Texas and in Violation of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights?

“That happens to a lot of people here in Brackett,” said the mayor, Eric Martinez, using the nickname for the town. He said he was followed and then pulled over after leaving a City Council meeting because, the officer told him,

his license plate light was not bright enough.


Has everyone forgotten how to look at the Human side of these people? Of these individuals?

Turning Texas into to Wild, Wild West again ain’t a good thing. But using all of this as a Prop for Votes is just real Creepy feeling, isn’t it? Too many are afraid to Report the Truth these days. But why?

“I spent everything to get here,” Mr. Jimenez said after the officers wrested him and the other men from the brush.

The men assumed they had been detained by immigration officers for illegally crossing into the United States. They were wrong. Instead, they were arrested on charges of trespassing on a vast private ranch by highway patrol officers from the Texas State Police?

Texas State Police?

“If you come into the state of Texas illegally, you have a high likelihood of not getting caught and released, but instead, arrested and jailed.”

The men arrested under the program, some 2,000 so far, have often been held for weeks without access to lawyers. More than 1,000 are currently being held in state prisons that were repurposed to house them. (Women and children have been turned over to federal agents.. Why aren’t the women arrested too and jailed? The men are considered Bad Hombres. Especially when husbands travel with wives and their kids. Real Bad. And afterwards, they will be deported and NEVER be allowed to migrate here because they done got Stamped with the ABBOTT BRAND on their Butts with an Arrest Record…

Mr. Abbott argues that the government has done little to halt the flow of them (bad hombres). He has dedicated 3 Billion Dollars-While Property Owners NEED A TAX BREAK! for a series of measures at the border, including sending state police and troops from the Texas State Guard, creating a border barrier with unneeded or unwanted shipping containers and using the National Guard to construct several miles of fencing along the Rio Grande. Using Troops to build fence. Boy, did they see that on their enlistment papers? Where was it in the Constitution? To use Troops like this? A skilled Job. And it’s not a laughing matter. None of this is a laughing matter at all. It’s very serious.

But the arrests of migrants for criminal trespassing has been a more disruptive element of what is known as Operation Lone Star, crowding courts and local jail populations is raising alarm among defense lawyers and advocates for migrants. But who Cares? Do you?

A spokeswoman for U.S. Customs and Border Protection declined to comment on the initiative, and federal agents are not partnering with the state police in making trespassing arrests. Is it legal to Arrest and Jail Immigrants caught on Texas Rancher Land and also to put their Children in Juvenile Detention Centers, too? Is it? Not everything is as it is being Reported. And the women, the wives. Sad. Truly sad. And We do all of this and still want God’s Blessings.

The (THE ABBOTT APPROACH) new approach relies on the participation of local officials and, so far, it has been adopted in just two of the state’s 32 border region counties: Kinney, which includes Brackettville, and Val Verde, its neighbor to the west. 30 have NOT. Why? WBlessings. Why Not?

10,000 Reporters need to descend upon Bracketville and get the Full Story. Follow the “Daily Catch” and see what Happens. You just might be surprised. Ask them if they were violently man-handled? Or can you talk to them? I BET not! Lawyers can’t and why not?

Having lived in Texas is Areas where large Ranchers HIRE illegal Immigrants (simply migrant workers) to cut Brush, work cows, and fix and build fences. And in Uvalde, Texas, they used these workers to work vegetable crops for American Mouths and bellies. But how quickly every one forgets how these workers got here and worked HARD for small Wages and then returned back home to Mexico and South America. Many worked the migrants and then refused to Pay them afterwards. Yes, it happens. Just like in the Old West Land Wars.

I’ve worked on Ranches with these Vaqueros. And my father showed me and I’ve watched these workers working in vegetable fields that weren’t here legally in Uvalde, Texas. The local population all knew that. And it wasn’t a big deal. But now it is AN EXPLOSIVE POLITICAL PISS POT ISSUE. These workers were kind people and not ugly hateful evil people. They were not the Villains the politicians have made them out to be. But are they for you?

Does the United States or Texas or the U.S. Constitution have anything like Treaties or Agreements with Mexico for the Fair Treatment of their Citizens by treating them with Dignity even though they have entered America Illegally? Are American Citizens treated similarly in Mexico where Americans enter Mexico illegally? Yes, there are…Is Texas and the United States in Violation of one of the most pivotal Treaties that all Nations agreed UPON?

Universal Declaration of Human Rights

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) is a milestone document in the history of human rights. Drafted by representatives with different legal and cultural backgrounds from all regions of the world, the Declaration was proclaimed by the United Nations General Assembly in Paris on 10 December 1948 (General Assembly resolution 217 A) as a common standard of achievements for all peoples and all nations. It sets out, for the first time, fundamental human rights to be universally protected and it has been translated into over 500 languages. The UDHR is widely recognized as having inspired, and paved the way for, the adoption of more than seventy human rights treaties, applied today on a permanent basis at global and regional levels (all containing references to it in their preambles). 


Whereas recognition of the inherent dignity and of the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family is the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world,

Whereas disregard and contempt for human rights have resulted in barbarous acts which have outraged the conscience of mankind, and the advent of a world in which human beings shall enjoy freedom of speech and belief and freedom from fear and want has been proclaimed as the highest aspiration of the common people,

Whereas it is essential, if man is not to be compelled to have recourse, as a last resort, to rebellion against tyranny and oppression, that human rights should be protected by the rule of law,

Whereas it is essential to promote the development of friendly relations between nations,

Whereas the peoples of the United Nations have in the Charter reaffirmed their faith in fundamental human rights, in the dignity and worth of the human person and in the equal rights of men and women and have determined to promote social progress and better standards of life in larger freedom,

Whereas Member States have pledged themselves to achieve, in co-operation with the United Nations, the promotion of universal respect for and observance of human rights and fundamental freedoms,

Whereas a common understanding of these rights and freedoms is of the greatest importance for the full realization of this pledge,

Now, therefore,

The General Assembly,

Proclaims this Universal Declaration of Human Rights as a common standard of achievement for all peoples and all nations, to the end that every individual and every organ of society, keeping this Declaration constantly in mind, shall strive by teaching and education to promote respect for these rights and freedoms and by progressive measures, national and international, to secure their universal and effective recognition and observance, both among the peoples of Member States themselves and among the peoples of territories under their jurisdiction.
