Two Latina mothers in Washington state are furious after their children had their eyebrows waxed while at daycare. Glenda Maria Cruz and Alyssa Salgado took to Facebook to let their friends and the world know about what happened to their children. The children were at a daycare operated by the Boys and Girls Club in Pasco, Wash., according to Tri-City Herald, when they had their unibrows waxed without the parents’ knowledge.

Glenda Maria Cruz was the first one to publicly post about her disappointment with the daycare.

According to The Seattle Times, a state investigation into the daycare is underway to figure out what happened and who waxed the children’s eyebrows. The Boys and Girls Club, which runs the daycare, is also looking into the matter. The daycare is at Columbia Basin College and is used by student parents so they can attend class.

An hour later, her friend, Alyssa Salgado, shared a post of her experience as well.

“I just want them to figure out who did this to my daughter,” Salgado, who hasn’t been back to class since the incident because she can’t find childcare, told The Seattle Times. “I don’t feel comfortable leaving my children there now. I didn’t think this would get this much attention. It’s hard, but I feel I have to give a voice to the voiceless ’cause these kids can’t speak.”

The mothers are advising other mothers to think twice before leaving their children at this daycare.

Rep. Gohmert Has Filed A Resolution To Change Cesar Chavez Day To ‘National Border Control Day’

Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert is trying to change César Chávez Day (March 31) to “National Border Control Day” and people are not amused. The Texas representative is the same man who tried connecting gun control to marriage equality to bestiality. Somehow allowing for gun reform is the same as allowing same-sex couples to get married and he seems to believe that that would lead to bestiality. Now, he is using César Chávez’s legacy to try and push for a special day to celebrate border control.

Rep. Louie Gohmert is proudly displaying his desire to make César Chávez Day about immigration.

“Cesar Chavez was best known for his passionate fight to gain better working environments for thousands of workers laboring in harsh conditions on farms for low wages. He also staunchly believed in sovereignty of the United States border,” Rep. Gohmert said in a statement. “In fact, it was his firm belief that preventing illegal immigration was an essential prerequisite to improving the circumstances of American farmworkers; and in 1979, in a speech at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., he demanded that the federal government enforce the immigration laws and keep illegal aliens out of the country.”

And the Congressional Hispanic Caucus (CHC) is not letting him get away with his rhetoric.

It’s important to note that Chávez had a very complicated belief when it came to immigration. Particularly when it came to his own work trying to better the conditions of farmworkers in the U.S. Yet, the Congressional Hispanic Caucus is calling out the representative for misrepresenting the facts to suit his cause.

Chávez did have issue with undocumented immigration but only because of the effects it had on his overall cause of helping America’s farmworkers. It is a part of the story that is often excluded but did factor into how the United Farm Workers of America (UFW) operated. According to “The Crusades of Cesar Chavez” by Miriam Pawel, Chávez wanted to stop undocumented people from entering the U.S. so they would break the strikes and hamper his efforts.

According to “The Crusades of Cesar Chavez,” UFW did set up a mission called “Illegals Campaign” to stop people from crossing the border.

But Dolores Huerta, his confidant and partner with UFW, has said that is was never about keeping people out. It was about helping people get good wages for their work and to stop the exploitation of undocumented workers.

“When we first started organizing way back in 1962, the bracero program ended in 1963, we worked to end the bracero program because a lot of the Braceros were being exploited,” Huerta told Fusion. “It was not being against undocumented, it was a lot of undocumented people were in the union.”

The response to Rep. Gohmert’s tweet was swift and strongly against the resolution.

That’s what we call a severe burn, children.

Some people did try educating the Texas politician.

It is a very complicated stance that requires being able to understand distinctions and nuances. Chávez’s stance is not just against undocumented people coming to the U.S. just because. It was to protect them from exploitation and to help his farm workers, according to those close to Chávez.

A few people just realized that Rep. Gohmert is an actual politician.

So, the next time there is any voting for his seat, some voters might think twice.

Mostly though, people are disappointed with Rep. Gohmert’s underhanded tactic.

Well…
