Support Granjeno Day

Support Granjeno Day!

Labor Day, Sept. 1, 2008
5:00 pm to 7:00 pm

Public is Invited

(Downtown Granjeno, take South Shery Rd past the McAllen Trade Zone)

FREE Chicken Barbeque (500)
Hot Dogs and Drinks for the kids (while supply lasts)

They didn't ask for the Border Wall,... but now they have to live with it!

This is an opportunity to show the people that must now LIVE with the BORDER WALL that we support them! It is a chance to hear first hand the effects that the BORDER WALL is already having on the residents of South Texas.

It is a gathering for the residents of Granjeno to tell their personal stories and to document memories of the rich history of their unique community, to tell stories about their families and their ancestral land. It is our opportunity to learn their feelings about what they are now being forced to accept from the United States Government.

Proudly sponsored by the Pharr Community Outreach Project/Shalom and the Resist The Wall Campaign, who will be providing video recording teams for documentary use against the BORDER WALL.

Please attend to help us show them that we support them.

Thanks for the support and prayers for the people of Granjeno. The fence is not a pretty sight, but I am thankful to God that we didn't lose our properties. We don't support the construction of the border wall any where in the Valley. It's a segmented and very selective positioned fence which makes no sense at all, except to quiet and show the the fence proponents that this administration is trying to curb immigration and supposedly terrorist groups for national security purposes. They are violating every human, civil and international right which protect the people owning these properties.
The U.S.Supreme Court is contridicting case law priorly used to protect private estate grants in South Texas. They need to prove the effect this segmented fence will have against national security. It's all a show at our expense. Why isn't Texas stepping in, I mean the Attorney General and the Governor, see if the General Land Office allows the U.S. government to take any of their public domain without a fight and a congressional law?
