Letter to my Senators – feel free to use

Oscar Ramirez

“We have people coming into the country or trying to come in, we’re stopping a lot of them, but we’re taking people out of the country. You wouldn’t believe how bad these people are. These aren’t people. These are animals.” – Trump 5-15-18

Senator, when you are sitting in the nursing home with a Latin-American caregiver spoon feeding you apple sauce, wiping the slobber off your face and changing your diaper this image STILL WON’T BE THE DEMOCRATS FAULT, IT’S YOURS. It’s yours because you allowed an immoral, corrupt, and decadent man with no sense of compassion, empathy or Judeo-Christian ethics or values to operate without any repercussions, consequences or oversight.

Just as the image of the “Napalm girl” defined Johnson & Nixon’s connection to the Vietnam War this tragic image will define yours and Trump’s callous immigration position for generations to come. When my grandchildren see this picture of Oscar Martinez Ramirez and his 23-month-old daughter Valeria in their history books I will tell them that my representatives, you, did nothing to prevent it from happening. Your response to this tragedy was a curt Tweet, and an appearance on Fox News to blame someone else.

Senator, when Jesus ask you, “Why didn’t you do something to prevent the deaths of My two children?” do you think, “It’s the Democrats fault” will be the answer He is looking for?

I am a frustrated writer and poet waiting to be discovered. A stand-up philosopher performing on a street corner near you. A Christian with questions but I don’t want to hear your answers. A Buddhist with a bumper sticker on my truck to prove it. A collector of quotes. A grower of lettuce. The Patron Saint of earthworms who name their children after me. A cyclist whose big ass strains the seams of his Lycra bibs. I am American by birth, Southern by the grace of God. My goal in life is to leave an imprint on the lives of the people I love not a footprint on the earth. I am a son, a husband, a father composed of 65%-Oxygen, 18%-Carbon, 10%-Hydrogen, 3%-Nitrogen, 3%-Diet Coke and 1%-Oreo.

  1. I hope they read your letter. I have not received responses from my guys in many months. I often wonder if there is a capital “D” for democrat that pops up with my name along with my letter? When I saw videos and pictures of Oscar and Valeria while alive, I said yep, for sure those two are terrorists, drug smugglers and rapists. I pray that the deceased photo is burned in trump’s mind forever. Like the ‘napalm girl’, this photo will be with me forever.

  3. I’m sure the Deplorables just love seeing these two face down in the water, and that disgusts me even more.

    Then He will answer them, saying, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to Me.’
