Damn! White Girl Tastes Baja Fresh Quesadilla And Immediately Opposes Border Wall
Amber May Johnston, secretary of the University of Georgia’s College Republicans, has sent shockwaves through the university community this week following her public rebuke of the Mexican border wall — allegedly after eating a quesadilla at Baja Fresh.
Typically not a fan of “foreigner food,” Johnston was left with no alternatives when she and two sorority sisters found themselves starving on a lonesome stretch of highway while returning from spring break in Panama City.
“I told them I’d try it so long as I didn’t have to speak Mexican to order.”
Johnston initially expressed skepticism of the oozing, disc-shaped “Kwehsuhdilluh,” but her friends assured her it was very, very similar to a sandwich. Upon taking a bite, Johnston found herself overwhelmed by the savory sensations of cheese, tortilla, meat, and something she’d never before experienced: spice. It’s this “spice” that she cites as her primary motive when talking about her newfound opposition to both Trump’s border wall and any attempts to impose limits on immigration, especially from Latin America.
“How could I, knowing what I know now, deprive my fellow American citizens of the good news of Mexican food that I hath been granted through my lord and fast-casual restaurant, Baja Fresh?“
Having now cut ties with all right-wing campus groups, Amber May is now working with an organization that helps undocumented immigrants connect with resources and legal aid.
“Immigrants bring new skills and perspectives on how to make delicious handheld food. My hope is that for every person I help, they will go on introduce one or two new quesadilla flavors.”
She says that when confronted with the harsh reality of growing anti-immigrant sentiment in the United States, she focuses on that first blast of Baja Freshness and the strength it gave her to confront her long-held biases.
“I can’t wait to try an Asian quesadilla!”
