From his appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Beto explains how he got the name Beto more than 30 years ago in El Paso, and why Texas does not need a wall against Mexico:
Deportations plague much of recent U.S. history. It never works out well for the U.S., on the whole, especially mass deportations.
Hoyt Axton and Arlo Guthrie joined to sing Woody Guthrie’s account of one catastrophic deportation incident.

The great Lalo Alcatraz put truth in his cartooning pen. Damn, that hurts.

Found this on Twitter, from an @DocBobLA. I believe the sign is from College Avenue Presbyterian Church in Oakland, California. An enlightened bunch of Christians — they even have a Twitter account, @CAPCOakland.

Update: I see @CAPCOakland tweeted this sign earlier.
