With apologies to Martin Niemöller:

First they came for the Mexicans, and I did not speak out —
Because I was not a Mexican.

Then they came for the Muslims, and I did not speak out —
Because I was not a Muslim.

Then they came for the poor, and I did not speak out —
Because I was not poor.

Then they came for me — and there was no one left to speak for me.
