With some people calling

for a Muslim ban,

even our freedom

of religion is at risk.

You're wearing

your uniform today.

To show people that the way

that Muslims are being treated,

getting detained at the airport,

and almost being outright

banned is just unacceptable.

You know, we need

to come out and show

our fellow Americans

who were are.

Of course. Right.

In any other context, people

would be saluting you,

and here, it's, like,

you might as well

be getting the middle

finger from the government.

What the hell is going on?

Why is a nation of newcomers

suddenly turning its

back on itself?

I wanted to understand

more, so I headed down

to the frontline

of the immigration battle,

to a sweaty little border

town called Brownsville,

at the southern tip of Texas.

And as we all know, the tip

is always the most sensitive,

so the people who live

here are getting hit hard

by America's changing policies.

Who lives here? Is it mostly

Mexican-American people?

Mexican and Mexican-American

people is 95 percent of us,

but at the end of the day,

we're all Texan.

Many of these folks have

family and friends living

and working on both sides

of the border,

creating one big community

of "murderers, rapists

and some, I assume,

are good people."

That's the Rio Grande.

That's Mexico.

You could throw a rock

across right here.

I'm just walking

along the border

and finding kids' clothes,

womens' clothes, more

shoes, shoes, shoes.

I don't think that's a drug

dealer or a terrorist

coming over right there.

Raids and detentions

are at an all-time high.

Plus, el Presidente's

constant threats

of mass deportations,

including young

DREAMers who were

raised and educated here,

and of course, the building

of an even bigger barrier
