The foreigner residing among you must be treated as your native-born. Love them as yourself, for you were foreigners in Egypt. I am the LORD your God. Lev. 19:34

.The human factor
Today I just covered some news stories- and actually went to the restaurants that they did a federal raid on a few weeks ago.
I’ve been talking about it some on the videos.
The owner has been charged with around 17 criminal acts- because he used illegal aliens as workers.
Some lived on his properties and stuff.
For the most part- the community [Refugio] saw them all as good citizens that contributed to the community.
The Fed’s investigated them for around 3 years- and found no ‘other’ criminal stuff going on.
Yet they charged the owner- who is facing prison time.
I did talk to a few of the workers- and they seemed like they wanted to tell their story- but possibly a bit camera shy.
They had a help wanted sign on the door of the Mexican buffet- obviously the others are no longer working there.
This whole debate has been going on in our country for the last few years [actually longer] but here in Texas the majority of the illegal aliens are simply people who came over looking for work.
Many of them were young when their parents brought them here.
They grew up as ‘Americans’.
And there is a great fear in the immigrant community- and this raid simply intensified that fear.
From what I observed- the restaurant workers that remain were trying hard to serve the people- some looked like law enforcement- eating at the Mexican restaurant.
I’m sure they have had regulars who have come and gone for years.
They become family to the communities they serve.
Hopefully the federal judge handling the case [Ellington] will look at the overall situation-
Yes- some were here illegally- and because of the crackdown- they will have to go back.
But to send the owner to federal prison?
I think that would be wrong.
I also talked some on the Russia/Syria situation- which as of now is still up in the air.
Even though I didn’t get to interview anyone on video- you do see the city of Refugio- quite an historic city- and the restaurants that were raided-
That’s it for today- God bless all
