Since her strategy in the march 4 Texas primary is completely reliant upon carrying south Texas, Hillary Clinton in particular needs to listen to border communities opposed to the wall. She seems to have heard the voices of border residents at her rally in Brownsville last Wednesday, when the crowd chanted "NO BORDER WALL!" when she mentioned immigration. Two days later she spoke out against the wall in the Texas Democratic debate. Barak Obama quickly followed suit. We just need to make them hear our voices. Then hopefully their words will be followed by concrete action.
