Punk has always been deeply rooted in politics, and the Casualties are making sure it stays that way in their latest video for “Borders.”

With a clear, pointed message at President Donald Trump’s controversial immigration policies, the band spits venom through intense visuals and border statistics.

Showing facts on deaths and child separation before propelling into their high-octane anthem, the band makes their message loud and clear with bolded onscreen lyrics.

In an effort to show their raw, uncensored feelings, frontman David Rodriguez was anything but shy about the band’s political standing on an issue that “cuts to the bone.”

“We’re not holding back on how we feel about Trump,” Rodriguez says. “This is [a] lyrical machine gun fire pointed right between the eyes of this asshole and anyone who follows him. The video is visually and musically a protest song of our generation and we’ve had enough. Fuck your President and fuck your wall.”
