El Peso Hero Border Stories : La Bestia

As many as half a million Central American immigrants annually hop aboard freight trains colloquially known as “La Bestia,” or the beast, on their journey to the United States. The cargo trains, which run along multiple lines, carry products north for export. As there are no passenger railcars, migrants must ride atop the moving trains, facing physical dangers that range from amputation to death if they fall or are pushed. Beyond the dangers of the trains themselves, Central American migrants are subject to extortion and violence at the hands of the gangs and organized-crime groups that control the routes north. In El Peso Hero Border Stories : La Bestia, two young brothers risk death riding La Bestia and witness El Peso Hero in action.

Captain America takes on Anti-Immigration Vigilantes-“What took you awhile Captain America?”,El Peso Hero.

Captain America defeats a group of vigilantes who patrol the US-Mexico border and declare immigrants to be ‘enemy combatants’ in a new issue of the Marvel comic.
The gun-wielding masked men, who call themselves The Sons of the Serpent, are seen blocking a group of undocumented immigrants attempting to cross the border.
‘Attention all trespassers! I am the Supreme Serpent!’, the leader yells to a group of undocumented immigrants attempting to cross the border.
‘By invading this sovereign land, you defy the laws of God, nature and the United States Constitution!’
When one of the men tells the group they don’t want any trouble, the Supreme Serpent responds: ‘I can see you have enough trouble with you already, trouble and disease and crime weigh heavy on your backs’

When the group beg the men to leave them alone, the leader says the Sons of the Serpent believe that ‘aggression must answer aggression’.
‘I declare you all enemy combatants!’, he says. ‘You’re coming with us or you will feel the Serpent’s bite!’

Coincidence?
It’s a humbling feeling knowing that Marvel is following our path in defending immigrants. Granted they use the Sons of the Serpent as a substitute for local militias.
