Printed along top: Esequiel Hernandez “El Buen Pastor.” A tragic consequence of this country’s insane and racist border policy was the murder of Esequiel of Redford, Tex. while he tended his goats. The assasins (sic) were absolved since they were only “following orders,” and “he fit the profile of a drug smuggler,” so they said.
