The U.S. Border Patrol, white police working for Tohono O'odham Police Department, and federal agents, are now stopping all supporters and reporters headed to the Border Wall protest right.

They are issuing threats on a warning letter which has the Tohono O'odham Nation Police Department logo on it. It is a written threat of trespass, criminal charges and vehicle impoundment, in an attempt to halt the protest hosted by Traditional O'odham opposing Trump's Border Wall.

Supporters are at the Bashas parking lot, and Shell gas station, in Sells, at 9:30 a.m., waiting and hoping, for O'odham tribal members to escort them to the border so they will not be charged with trespass.

O'odham protest Border Wall at the Wo'osan Gate (San Miguel Gate)

By Brenda Norrell

O’odham in Mexico rally today, March 25, at the border to protest President Trump’s plan to build a border wall that would separate their families and communities, interfere with ceremonies and threaten the lives of O’odham who depend on medical services.

The Traditional O’odham in Sonora, Mexico, welcome the public and media to join them for prayer, traditional songs and speakers, beginning at 7 a.m. on Saturday, March 25, 2017.

"Everyone is invited to support the O'odham community in bringing awareness to the negative effects that the US President Donald Trump's physical barrier would have on the livelihood of O'odham living on both sides of the border,” the Consejo Supremo O’odham in Mexico said.

The international border dissects the traditional homelands of O’odham, who live on both sides of the US Mexico border.

President Trump’s proposed border wall would deter O’odham traditional ceremonies, separate families and threaten the lives of those who depend on emergency medical services.

Further, the border wall in Arizona would halt the natural flow of migration of wildlife, including jaguars and pronghorns.

 

Wo'osan Gate, known as The Gate, is located south of Sells, Arizona. It is a US Mexico border crossing for O'odham with tribal membership identification.
