What a massive failure to understand what is happening. These people have so little left to lose that they are willing to risk their lives and the lives of their children, to throw themselves under the pitiful mercy of the brutal nation that is the United States of America in hopes of securing a better life for themselves.

The USA looks a whole lot different on the outside than it does on the inside, folks.

Sure, of course there are some things that happen in the USA that are NOT savage and inhumane. We all know that (from the endless movies and TV shows and sitcoms and magazines and stories and books and lectures and history books and textbooks…). But that is not worth talking about right now. Because that is not what is killing people and ruining lives and preventing human progress. The things that are actually causing dire consequences at this moment is what we should be focusing on not how pretty we were last year at the beach.

The crisis of murdered and missing Indigenous women β€” High Country News

The response to a disproportionate problem is falling short.

Source: The crisis of murdered and missing Indigenous women β€” High Country News

Instead of addressing this from the perspective of “crime” I feel like the only way to adequately respond to this situation is for the United States of America to accept responsibility for the ongoing genocide of Native American civilization.  By doing so the inherent value of Native Americans will be established, being equal to other human beings, and these problems will naturally receive the attention and resources they deserve.
