I am releasing Suddenly Cataclysms as a single to generate awareness to the United States/Mexico border situation. I am donating all revenue that is generated from streaming and digital single sales to Border Angels an all volunteer, non profit organization that advocates for human rights, humane immigration reform, and social justice with a special focus on issues related to the US-Mexican border. Border Angels works to dispel the various myths surrounding immigration in the United States and to bring back truth and justice.
There has been a steady increase in the militarization of the United States/Mexico border, primarily due to the implementation of Operation Gatekeeper. Suddenly Cataclysms is a very personal song I wrote for and about the ongoing struggle with deporting Hispanics back to Mexico from the United States Border.
Many years of devastating economic and immigration policies have created a situation where thousands of people from Mexico and Latin America risk their lives each year crossing into the United States in the hope of finding a better life.
Hispanic families and kids are caught in the middle of this bad situation. Not to mention, the glaring perception that every one believing they are nothing but bad people crossing over. This is not true.
My father crossed the border illegally into the United States to start a better life for himself and to send money he made by working hard, back to his mother and brothers and sisters in Reynosa, Mexico and to this day I am grateful he did that. His whole life he was called names in every job he worked in because he spoke very little English and was an illegal. So he made sure his kids spoke perfect English so they would not have to be humiliated like he was.
Real human beings are who we all are, regardless of race/religion/color or nationality were all humans who are trying to better themselves for their families.
All Proceeds for this Single will go to Border Angels to Save lives and Make a difference.
Please donate what you can to Border Angels
