Brown at the Borders - America's Immigration Crisis

Christopher D. Sims a.k.a UniverSouL

Brown at the borders
Are sons and daughters
of parents who have escaped
violence, wars, weapons, and
endless tears.

America fears children
Who crosses her borders
Believing that safety and
calm are here.

Year after year, “ the browning
of America”is somehow a
threat. How could we ever
Forget that this land was
once inhabited by their Ancestors

Brown at the borders, as
the President of the United States
orders billions from Congress
To deport thousands of children.

Children who have feelings.
Children who have emotions.
Children who seek better lives.

Brown at the borders
Running from ruins and relentless
pressure from rough gang leaders
They are being told, “America will 

give you amnesty.”

The children live in a hopeless land.
Will we take the time to understand?
From America,they will be shipped
and banned.

We have the upper hand, as they remain
brown at the borders. Brown at our mean,
politically motivated, heartless borders.
