Relatives and neighbors of Claudia Patricia Gomez Gonzales deceased in Laredo Texas, are dismayed in their home in the Caserío Los Alonzo, in San Juan Ostuncalco, Quetzaltenango. Via: Jaime Soc.

Claudia Patricia Gómez Gonzáles was shot and killed by U.S. Border Patrol on Wednesday near Laredo, Texas. The 19-year-old child was coming to the U.S. from Guatemala in hopes of securing work to pay for her education.

Claudia was shot in the head when a Border Patrol agent fired on a group of people he believed to be undocumented immigrants in Rio Bravo, Texas.

Customs and Border Protection released a statement on Wednesday saying a lone Border Patrol agent was responding to a report of illegal activity near a culvert in Rio Bravo, Texas, when he “came under attack by multiple subjects using blunt objects.”

The revised report claims the agent ordered the group of immigrants to “get on the ground,” but they ignored his commands and “instead rushed him”…(without blunt objects). When the President lies incessantly, people in government feel then can do the same.

The family of a 19-year-old Guatemalan woman killed by a U.S. border patrol officer called on Friday for the United States to dial-back its rhetoric on migrants, after President Donald Trump described gang members entering the country as “animals.” Claudia was not a rapist, a gang member, or drug dealer as far as we know. She was not an animal, she was a human being, a young person.

Dominga Vicente, Claudia’s aunt told reporters in Guatemala City: “To the government of the United States, (I ask) that you do not treat us like this – like animals – just because you are a powerful and developed country,”

A seven-minute video posted online has gone viral. It appears to show the aftermath of the incident on a residential street. In the video, a woman calls out in Spanish, “Why did you shoot the girl? You killed her!”

Is this what President Trump’s MAKE AMERICA WHITE AGAIN means? Why does Trump have to kill people at the border? Why must we have the blood of this innocent child on our hands? Why do we allow this moral monster in the White House to rule over us?

Trump’s policy of separating Hispanic children from their parents trying to enter the country is a nightmare. Federal agencies have lost track of some 1,500 of these children. Desperate parents being detained don’t know what has happened to their children and can’t contract them.

Then Trump has the gall to blame the Democrats for this outrage.

This is a big lie. 1) There is no law requiring children to be separated from parents. 2) Democrats are already asking him to reverse his policy. 3) Republicans control Congress. 4) The 2008 law his administration points to as evidence for the claim was signed by G.W. Bush.

Trump is destroying families. He is deporting people who have lived here for years and committed no crimes. He is undermining the work force that has made California the bread basked of the world. The damage to agriculture and our food supply is a self-inflicted wound on our economy. Trump is threatening the availability of food and the stability of lower food prices across the country.

We’re experiencing incident after incident of racially motivated attacks on innocent people in this country because of Trump’s racist pandering to his base of White Nationalist extremists.

Boycott Bank of America to send a message to Congress

In order to convince Congress to pass a just and workable immigration policy, and impeach Trump, we must make Congress we much have something to bargain with. We must have leverage.

Call Bank of America and occupy their phones. Put their business on hold. Tell Bank of America to tell Congress to meet our demands… or Congress can lose Bank of America.

Occupy the phones, overload the bank with calls, put a chokehold on their communications, interrupt business as usual and cost the bank enough money to undermine their profitibility.

Force Congress to impeach President Trump… just to save Bank of America from going under.

The GOP Republicans control Congress; they are ones keep Trump in power. However, they can’t afford to lose Bank of America and face an economic meltdown on Wall Street.

We must take the Resistance to the next level of protest. We must go from a million protesters marching in the streets to a million callers blocking the phones at Bank of America.

Bank of America is one of the 5 big banks on Wall Street. They are a key player in the Shadow Government that owns a big share of Congress and the President. When Bank of America speaks, Congress listens.

The best way to reach Congress is to peacefully call Bank of America, non-violently overload their communications, disrupt their business until their own customers turn on them.

When we occupy the phones at Bank of America, it’s only a matter of time until stockholders panic and start dumping their stock and depositors want they money back and start a run on the bank.

The Bank of America Phone Boycott will make news

… it will go viral. News of the protest will activate protesters with smartphones to social network activating others to join in calling Merrill Edge in cities around the world. The International Bank of America Phone Boycott will grow and multiply and spread like a computer virus among people in cities everywhere who hate Bank of America/ Merrill Edge and fear the insane gas bag who is President of the United States.

Congress will pass human and workable immigration laws, protect the Trump-Russia investigation and impeach Trump for treason…or Congress will lose Bank of America/ Merrill Edge and run the risk of a financial melt-down on Wall St.

Join the Resistance.

Call Bank of America, occupy the Phones and keep calling until the volume of our calls disrupts their business. Call the nearest branch of BofA let them hear the sound of doom in their offices with their phones ringing off the hook.

Call in solidarity and help put a chokehold on the communications at Bank of America, disrupt business and cost them money… a great deal of money. Hold the bank hostage and exercise leverage over Congress. Congress will meet our demands because Congress cannot afford to lose BofA.

Let’s be reasonable.

No one wants to see Bank of America go bankrupt least of all Congress. All we have to do is call in solidarity. All Congress has to do is bend the knee and meet our demands and the invisible army of the Resistance will stop calling.

We are the Resistance. We have smartphones, we have the weapons of non-violent protesting to secure the power over our Congress, which is rightfully ours. We have the means to end the reign of Trump’s terror and save Democracy in America.
