Senatorial candidate Dr. Gavin Clarkson presents a talk entitled, ‘Mix the Mortar to Fix the Border’. He explains that he is running for the U.S. Senate to be a champion for those whose voices are not heard in the halls of Congress ... for the legal immigrants like his wife Marina from Argentina, who he said followed the rules to become a citizen; for the victims of illegal immigrant crime; for the struggling farmers and ranchers in rural areas of New Mexico, particularly those living along the unprotected border; and for those who are economically disempowered due to federal regulations and corporate welfare schemes that benefit establishment lobbyists at the expense of entrepreneurs and small businesses.
