As Trump visits border, McAllen residents ask: What crisis?

https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2019/01/10/trump-visits-border-mcallen-residents-ask-what-crisis/2535007002/


MCALLEN, Texas – People and businesses across this border city reflected the national debate raging over President Donald Trump's border wall during his visit Thursday.

Protesters favoring the wall and those opposed to new barriers took to the streets as residents insisted there was no crisis.

Across the street from U.S. Customs and Border Protection's McAllen Station, which Trump is scheduled to tour, demonstrators lined the sidewalk.

Anti-Trump protesters inflated a Trump-baby blimp, while the president’s supporters chanted, “Build that Wall!”

Eddie Zamora waved a large blue “TRUMP” flag as the Trump-baby blimp floated behind him. He said he supported a wall to secure his community.

“I guarantee everybody out here locks their doors at night,” he said.

With all the divisive rhetoric on social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter, websites such as ours, especially message boards, are under the watchful eye of the Internet giants. And those giants are coming down hard on sites like this one due to the perception of the need for better "oversight".

We recognize the cultural conflict that exists and over the past few months we've been accused of allowing content in posts/threads that supposedly violates some advertiser's policies. Those threads weren’t an issue in the past, but for some reason, they are an issue now. And we are being penalized (financially) because of it.

 

As a result we are coming to you directly for your financial support>
