LETTER to the Editor: In support of Mexico

A statement to Mexico and its people from a group of foreign residents in Merida: 

          We feel the need to voice our solidarity and intent to help our adopted country any way we can.

          We recognize the important role Mexico and its people play in the economy and social fabric of the United States.

          We have chosen to make our home here in Mexico and despite the current US politics, we stand with our Mexican neighbors.

          We have always felt welcomed by Mexican hospitality and embraced by the people.

          We are embarrassed by the treatment of Mexico and its people by our current government.

          We believe in open arms, not closed walls.

          If more walls are built, we have shovels.

Signed: Sus Vecinos y Amigos
