Donna Ennis: Open border to indigenous sisters and children

RCMP Report - Missing and Murdered Aboriginal Women: A National Operational Overview

Donna Ennis calls on the United States to open the border to indigenous women from Canada and indigenous children from Mexico and Central America:
In Canada a disproportionate number of indigenous women are missing and found murdered with evidence of police collusion and the roots of the problem reside in colonial administrative policies which the federal government maintains. Genocidal policies designed to destroy the indigenous people have been acknowledged and apologies have been given but there is no change in current policies which continue to violate human rights of the indigenous people.

There is genocide happening in the Central American countries of Honduras, Guatamala and El Salvador and in the country of Mexico too. Violent crime in their communities, gang related or otherwise, has created a situation where thousands of refugees, many of them children, have crossed the US border seeking protection and in fear of losing their lives.

It is important to distinguish between immigrants and refugees. An immigrant is anyone that migrates from their country or region of origin to a different country or region. A refugee is anyone that migrates from their country or region of origin for fear of persecution and a return to their country or region of origin will cause further persecution. Refugees travel because of fear.
