Denny Grijalva on Being Born in Guatemala

Denny Grijalva

Just as Briceño will inevitably face questions about the G-eleven, his opponent will have his own to answer. The U.D.P.’s Denny Grijalva was born in Guatemala, and that fact, especially in these charged times, may just impact his run for the Central seat. He told us it isn’t…because he claims only one country, and it isn’t Guatemala.

 

Denny Grijalva, U.D.P. Candidate, OW Central

“There are things that you can do something about, and there are things that you can’t do anything about. For example the colour of your skin…you can’t change that? Your DNA…you can’t do anything about your DNA. You can’t do anything about your height. Just like that you cannot choose where you are born. My granddaughter was born in Chetumal and I nationalized her here. But hey, this is my country. I have no other country. I know no other country but my country. This is my country and this is the country that I will give my life to.”

    You may say you know no other country and deny Guatemala at this time but who knows? Where is your citizenship Mr. Grijalva? Or do you have dual citizenship? Belizeans do not vote for anyone under the circumstances that Belize currently face. Do not trust this Guat!

    Well said, my brother.

  3. Belizean Pride says:

    No guatemalan should run for our political parties either be pup or udp simple as that. Nationalization is not as being born native. Let our political issue be pure Belizean and done. So please replace this man or don’t vote for him.

    SO can we do we have a choice in destroying a historical monument or is that also something inherently Guatemalan?

  5. Abigail Newton says:
