WHEREAS, The U.S. is and has always been a nation of immigrants who have enriched the American culture; and

WHEREAS, millions of immigrants work hard, raise families, serve in the U.S. armed forces, and study at universities, despite assaults on their rights by the Bush administration; and

WHEREAS, residents on both sides of the border between Texas and Mexico have a long history of friendly border crossings involving family and trade relations that would be disrupted by a wall, and

WHEREAS, decades of effort to preserve what little natural and ecological health remains in the area would be degraded by a wall, and

WHEREAS, mayors, landowners and other local entities oppose such a wall along the natural border created by the river; and

WHEREAS, the entire concept of fencing off a border is but a false panacea for the underlying problems brought upon us by unfair trade practices which favor corporate profits over the interests of people on both side of the border; therefore be it

RESOLVED, That no wall or fence shall ever be built upon any section of the river that flows between the state of Texas and the country of Mexico.
