There's a good chance you've taken part in a massive online collaboration that you probably weren't even aware of and it's amazing. How Louis came up with all this but let's start at the beginning. Lewis was born in Guatemala in late. Nineteen Seventy S. Both as parents were doctors and though he was surrounded by poverty violence in Guatemala City. Louis screw up in comparative privilege and as a kid. He spent a lot of time hanging out at the family business. My Mother's family actually had a candy. Factory everybody is always a Mesa. The fact that I grew up with a candy factory they think it was like Willy. Wonka or something. I was not all that much into the candidate. Self I was into the machines because basically the candies made by these gigantic machines. That bump out I don't know how many thousands of pieces of candy per hour and basically all my weekends. I spent playing at the Candy Factory and I would They the machines apart and put them back together they would be some extra pieces after. I put him back together on that. That would be a problem but what? What kind of student were you were? You were school pretty easy for you. Yeah I was pretty nerdy basically. That was really good at math. Math was just easy to me. I what I would do during the summers is basically get either next year or you know. Couple YEARS LATER. Math books on all the sizes. Wow it kind of came easy but the way I really got good ideas by doing hundreds and hundreds exercises. That's what you do in. The summertime was bored. I mean I was an only child I is. I didn't have that much to do. This is remember this is also pre Internet pre everything. So what was I going to do? Man That's what I did was putting playing cards in the spokes of my bicycle and by jolly ranchers seven. Eleven should math books. So you were. Did you just love math? I mean it sounds like kids. Don't think about their future. They're not like I'm going to study math so I can be in tech one day like unless I've really enjoyed it. I I enjoyed it was it was like a puzzle for me by the way this is not the only thing I did. I mean I I also played a lot of video games Pirated Video Games in my commodore sixty four like floppy disks. Floppy Disk loppy discs. That's right I wanted a Nintendo. When I was eight my mother would not get many intendo. She instead got me computer. Commodore Sixty Four. And I couldn't figure out how to use it but eventually I read like the manual stuff and I figured out how to use it more than I figured out. I could buy other people's video games. And so I became a little hub in my in my little neighbourhood but these were not other kids adults or kind of basically young adults who had a computer and they would come to my house and I would take their games and give them my games exchange so then. I collected a pretty large number of video games but sh- mentioned right that I mean because your childhood sounds pretty nice but but like as a kid I guess or even as a teenager there was a civil war in Guatemala right. I mean we know that today. There's a a lot of violence there. Obviously violence in the US and other countries to but Guatemala's has been particularly hard hit. I mean did it feel dangerous when you're a kid yes it did. There was a civil war pretty much since I was born in seventy nine to nineteen ninety-six. There was a civil war going on the whole time. It always felt dangerous when I was fifteen or so. My aunt was kidnapped for ransom. I mean she was gone for seven or eight days. Wow People's cars would be stolen. I don't every couple of months. Somebody's car would be stolen in my family. Going past seven thirty PM was rare games. You needed to go out in a large group. If you're going to go up at seven thirty PM and I did my house had walls and barbed wire yeah. It felt dangerous. I mean this is one of just one of the reasons I came to the US. Actually I mean I was. After my aunt was kidnapped I thought to myself. I don't WanNa live here. Yeah and I guess you did end up leaving Guatemala for college because you went to Duke in North Carolina and you describe yourself as a like a math nerd in school and and is that what you intended to do like to do something in math. That's what I wanted to become an economic math professor. I was pretty certain. I wanted to become a math professor at the time. I thought the best thing that I can do is really learn a lot of math and I really it and I thought it was futile to learn how to deal with other people. It is interesting because my job. These days is one hundred percent just dealing with other people's problems. I'm just trying to understand the so so by becoming math professor. You thought. Hey I wouldn't have to deal with people I would just deal with facts. Data and numbers. Yes yes and you know I. I'll do math research all day long. And every now and then after class of but whatever that's like a tax That's that's what I thought so all right so you are She gets your degree and you this path to go into academia and you go into a PhD program at Carnegie Mellon Correct and I guess you go into computer science right yes. I changed from math computer science because I visited a math Grad school and what people were saying the professor was saying. Oh I'm working on this open problem that nobody's been able to solve for the last three hundred years and I thought I don't think I'm smart enough if you haven't done it and nobody's done it in three hundred years that's Kinda not for me whereas when you visit in computer science I mean this is crazy thing before like.

They're walking through it on the way to Mahyco. See what happens there second thing that I think you need to know Nancy Pelosi Cotonou gigantic lied. The media refuses to report as ally. We're in a letter to the president. And she said that you should we need to not have the state of the union happened just yet because the government shutdown security security reasons are why we should we should pause. It security reasons yet the secret service said nobody from Pelosi's office called us to ask us if they were security. Measures. If we couldn't provide it, we're totally fine. We've no problem with this. Homeland security said there's zero credibility to her letter. Why is the media giving her out? Why are they giving her an out third thing? I think you need to know is that story in the Washington Examiner ranchers down in Animas New Mexico, finding prayer rugs on their property on their ranches prayer rugs. And he say border patrol agents have told them over the past six months. Major spike in middle easterners Germans, Russians Chinese Slovakians. We need a wall. We absolutely one hundred percents need a wall. So. Now that we are talking about the wall or three things I think you need to know. There's a big fight going on right now. And the media for some reason only likes to talk about government where talk to government workers that aren't getting a paycheck. But they get paid on the back end. Or they make up stuff makeup facts experts. We talked to know wall. No this. No that blah, you know, who they don't talk to you are the angel moms. We talked to the angel moms. We talked to them at the fair radio row event. We talked to him here. I wish we didn't have to talk to them. But one of the moms that went into Nancy Pelosi's office to try to talk to her. We'll find out what happened is Marianne Mendoza Husan. Brandon was a Mesa. Police officer killed may twelfth two thousand fourteen head on collision by an illegal alien that was drunk and high driving on the four different highways. The wrong way four different highways the wrong way, kill Brandon, no calls from John McCain, Jeff flake pathetic awful. Marianne Mendoza as an angel momma, and there are way too many of them and she joins us now. Marianne? Hi, how you doing? Great. How are you? I'm doing. Okay. Thank you. Thank you the time this morning. Before we talk about the shutdown your take on this and everything else that's going on. I would love you to go over the story because it's not getting enough play in the media, you and other angel. Moms is also being Durden was one of them. And yet other angel moms there as well you guys decided to go into Nancy Pelosi's office and try to talk to her right? Yeah. So what happened? Well, we went in and. We were able to see her and they just kept working at us. Like, they didn't know who we were pictures of all of our kids that we'll have to check. We'll have to check. We'll have to check we decided just to stay there for a little bit. You know, we weren't loud and screaming like the other protesters aren't his onto into the Senate buildings and congressional buildings. But we decided, you know, we just needed ground. And we knew she was there. She wouldn't come out. And, you know, even if she came out and said, hey, I know you're here. I don't agree with you. Thank you for your time out of my office, just acknowledge that we even exist in that our children existed would be something, but Nancy Pelosi get Nestle. And so anyway, we started chanting build a wall build a while because we wanted her to here. And that is we relieving. They will they walked in and said that she was there for meeting with speaker Pelosi, and she was ordered back to see her. So it was clearly she had no time for us. And that's the sad and unfortunate thing. And the other slap in the face was yesterday. Chuck Schumer had all these people come out these. Senator is in congressional leaders. Come out holding pictures of the people who are furloughed workers, but the federal government, and it was basically blocking us is how I look at it because they know that we have pictures of our children and a furloughed worker versus the data American. There is no comparison and Chuck Schumer just really after dinner faces yesterday. I think he's a disgusting man representing Americans in this country. I would agree with you. I want to go. These are these are bad people they lie they like to their teeth just for power. I mean that. That's that's all that's all it is. We went into his office at the they were. Yes, either. So we we hit both of them up. You know? And I think that they would if there was a legal aliens going into talk to them or groups representing illegal aliens, they'd see him in a in a hot second, wouldn't they? Well, Nancy Pelosi was having that press conference in the DACA people were so loud screaming at her. And she actually, you know, oh. Oh, I'm sorry was Akyol sympathetic to them. We are herself American and she is a fellow American mother. And I want to minutes to stand in front of her I and just say to her how can you be doing this to be families? And how can you not be protected? You know, children and grandchildren in American citizens. And why aren't you acknowledging that we I mean, how can a mother she's in the highest position in the house because the house she's a woman should be making history. This is a pivotal point in in in our history that she could become an iconic woman in politics, and she's choosing not to do that. Choosing to listen to the, you know, demented old her career politicians who were in her ear telling that, this is what we're gonna do. We're not going to give Trump a victory on his biggest campaign promise. And that's what their twenty twenty campaign going to be right on that he failed the American people by not putting a while yet. They're the very people blocked from doing that Marian. Mendoza. An angel momma. You're listening to now on S T, aim seventy Tucson's. Most stimulating talk. I mean, I could even get up the sound bite. I don't know if you saw she had a Nancy Pelosi had when was this Ryan this was last week. She had the video my website Aquinas dot com where she actually told people that. Illegal aliens, killing Americans is still not justification to apprehend people when they crossed the border which was. You know, I was on Fox News last night at the foreman who is up with a gas with pain. You know, a lot of people talk about they put a wall up at it. But these twenty two million illegal aliens who are in a country. We're basically locking them into our country. Okay. First of all a wall. They not keep everybody out. But no one we'll keep going out, and we've got repeat illegal alien criminals. You come back over our border fifteen twenty twenty two times, they commit they commit crimes every time. They're here. Those are the people we need to start weeding out of our country at once they are deported. We have order security, and they're not able to come back in and eventually just problems going to get solved. But to say, you know, it's immoral who's this immoral to you know, my son paid alternate price as it all these other children and American citizen been killed. And that's not even to mention the hundreds of thousands of America victim of illegal alien crime, identity theft, rape assault hit run. Growing every day. And and it's something that as red blooded Americans. We can no longer. You know, we can't I'm gonna I'm gonna you're spot on. I wanna talk to you about what the president's doing, and and the shutdown the partial shutdown, and that kind of stuff, but I want you to hear this just in case you missed it. Because this I mean, she said some weird strange disgusting things, but you can hear this also this this might take the cake, that's thirty seconds. Listen to this in terms of respecting the dignity and worth everyone being concerned about every death that happens because of the cost imperfect world, and that's very sad. But it is not a justification for. Having more children die in custody be separated from their families going into that discussion taking babies Albion's of their parents as the mother of five and nine I find that appalling, they find it. So she finds that appalling did basically enforcing our laws and say, she couldn't even say because of an open border said an imperfect world, I mean, she's so she's such a liar. Yes. And she's disgusting and talked about these children being separated ripped out of their parents are number one. We all know a lot of them were being traffic is trusted. Number two, they're only separated now because of thank you judge Tigard twenty days, and then the reunited, everybody's to the United States, but random was my baby was a grown, man. But at one point he was my baby ripped out of my life permanently. I will never ever be able to hike my child. I love you mom and have the special moments that I had with him and his allies their their return me forever and Nancy closely could give a damn. Are you getting any kind of any kind of attention from the rest of the media? That hates Trump the fake news meat. I don't even call mainstream because I don't think they're mainstream. I mean, I know that you get interviewed at Breitbart, and you get on talk radio shows, and you get on Fox News. I mean, what you did by trying to talk to Nancy Pelosi and she sat in her office, refusing to talk to you, like, a chicken and horrible. Surrounded by walls and doors. Yes, exactly. They kept you out. They kept you out. So she did that to you Chuck Schumer mocked, you anybody else the media ever want to get your perspective on this. No. I mean, I reached out again to CNN to Anderson Cooper, and Don lemon, and I've said having families on your program. Let us show your viewers that we are not a manufactured crises. Of course, I've had no response from them. But I do have some fellow patriots who do have contact at up to them to see if they can possibly get them to have somebody on there to be able to tell the story. I think it's important for the viewers of liberal TV, different perspective of the story. And the, you know, a real person standing there. Describing a reality. Manufactured crises. They're real people and our children were real people. They were Americans that are dead at the way that Nancy Pelosi talked about these children be ripped apart at the order. There's so much passionate her voice when she talked about them. And yet, there's disdain inter boys. When she talked about American citizens any talks about putting wall up who the hell is she that? She's an American politician. And yet she she does not do anything to protect American citizens. What does she does? She's done. Thing that she's done positive. I I can't ever think of that. I couldn't think what John McCain did that was positive Jeff flake. I think what any of these people do that's positive. Again, I give you the you've such great strength you and your fellow angel angel moms and dads have such unbelievable strengthen, and I know we say prayers for you all the time, my wife, and my listeners, we we all do it's it's it's ridiculous. And it's so common sense. This needs to be solved. And there's no reason you just. And I think about those ranchers in southern Arizona lads and the Davison and the Chilton's, and I think about all of them in their first lady defense, I'm here in DC. I'm going to speak at a press conference hurston, and there are Hispanic ranchers from Texas and property owners in Texas who then the stories they tell us are horrendous of what they're dealing with what the cartel there.

"guatemala city" Discussed on PRI's The World
"I'm Marco werman and you're with the world where a co, production of the BBC World Service PRI and WG be h here in Boston. Here's a story. We're probably going to hear a lot about in the run up to the midterm elections next month. Another caravan of migrants heading north from Central America. Yes, we could after crossing from Honduras into Guatemala yesterday today, President Trump threatened to cut off aid to hunters. If the migrants continue their March, Guatemalan journalists, Luisa Sarda has been watching the progress of the caravan is heartbreaking to see that amount of people marching seeing praying with children and babies, and they'll repeal the gills walking and you see the shoes, the clothing is not appropriate to the weather conditions during the Ma. We have a lot of rainy seasons right now, so they went reach the Mexican border. I think on Sunday, and these will be a very huge crisis in the border. So they're on their way now to Guatemala City sixteen hundred marchers right. What what is the scene as they're walking along, they're walking. Along a highway. Last night they step in is key publicity, policies beat cdn near the border with less. There were around two thousand people on the park and Schilder, and then we work they. They were sleeping almost on the street. So the caravan started in San Pedro Soula in Honduras assembled russillo was once the the murder capital of the world, it's still a dangerous city. Why do the marchers say they're fleeing Honduras violence, gang violence and deal their pirate is they are with nothing, not having jobs, not having any money makes them very vulnerable. Yes. So fleeing poverty, we've heard a lot about that and the violence as well. I mean, there was a Honduran congressman Howdy Dixon who tweeted they are not seeking the American dream. They're fleeing the hunter a nightmare. So that certainly squares with the violence and the violent stories. We're hearing Louis, why are they doing this March this time of year? Why? Now it was round dome Deos gather people and begin to March. It is league. To seek asylum in the US even if you don't have papers. So people who present themselves at ports of entry are not violating any laws, how much do these migrants? No, that large segments of American society are not going to welcome them as far as I can see. Only feel of Dame know about asylum. The other ones I'd just marching to the border. I think they believe they can just enter the the countries. I don't think they are aware of the dissertation on the border vice President. Mike Pence told the president's in the region in Central America this week to stop migrants from fleeing north and President Trump is threatened to cut off aid, Honduras, but our leaders in the region able to stop these marchers as far as I can hear what I'm alleged, they are not doing anything to stop them because it's not possible. We don't have enough resources to stop them on him back to to the border with. That's because they are. There are a lot of. Families, a lot of children, a little alert people, and they are just crossing every road they can. The United States provides about one hundred seventy five million dollars in aid to Honduras. That was the last fiscal year if President Trump cut off that aid, what would that do to Honduras? Do you think, oh, it's going to be very, very bad for endorse economy. How would Guatemala feel if these Honduran migrants were to just stay in Guatemala? How would people feel about that? People are not happy with the US marchers here. There are of course a lot of people helping them and giving them food water medicine because they are just crossing the country. But if they wanna stay with no resources with no money, Justice, staying in the parks that he said, huge crisis minute, tiring crisis, Guatemala, journalists, Lewis, Louis Asada, keeping his eyes on nearly two thousand. Rondor and marchers who are moving through Guatemala. He's been speaking with us from Guatemala City Louis. Thank you. Thanks, you. There is a lot of uncertainty facing migrants who make it to the US Mexico border, especially families with children under the Trump administration's zero tolerance policy. Thousands of families have been separated at the border. In fact, according to a recent report by Amnesty, International, thousands, more families were separated and the government has previously disclosed, Brian Griffey is a researcher at Amnesty International..
