1) How @USBPChief is creating 1930s style propaganda that equates migrants w/ #COVID19. Bookmark this thread. @USBPChief has been slowing putting out pics and videos showing migrants, specifically Brown migrants, and suggesting they are infected w/disease.
2) You should know that Americans are far more likely to have #COVID19 with over 2 million infected. You should also know that @USBPChief is using this disinformation to justify subverting justice in the immigration system by denying asylum seekers their right to claim asylum.
3) This is a sample of how he is spreading this propaganda even though he is not testing these asylum seekers and has no evidence that they are infected.

1) Where do bad cops go when fired? Many times they go to @USBPChief @CBP @ICEgov. This is a story of one such case. In 2012, #BorderPatrol agents went to a Chula Vista apartment looking for a man named Ibarra. They were in plain clothes. All agents had their badge showing but
2) one. That one was Justin Tackett who had his badge hidden. They knocked on the door and when the door opened, they asked for Ibarra. Valeria Tachiquin said he was in the shower. She gathered her things as she was on her way out. Agent Tackett asked if she had the right to be
3) in the apartment. She did not answer. You should know that Tachiquin was a US citizen and when agents said they were Border Patrol, she wanted to get out of there bc she’d grown up in Chula Vista and was used to Border Patrol harassment as a Latina. As she left,

1) Thread on @USBPChief #BorderPatrol trophy pics: what is a trophy pic? It’s a pic of what agents are proud of. I am used to seeing drug trophy pics. Harmless in most cases. Used to seeing pics of agents rendering aid to migrants who were forced to cross in dangerous terrain bc
2) agents will no longer do their jobs and have shut down the asylum process. Used to trophy pics of various seizures. What I never got used to were the agents who took really grotesque trophy shots. What I find even more bizarre is how the @USBPChief PR team thinks these pics
3) are okay to share with the world. So, please pardon me for sharing these, but they are actual pics that make my point. Warning: they are sensitive and show migrants in distress. These are actual photos that #BorderPatrol chiefs tweet out and are proud of.

2019 in Review📅Article by @charlottecuthbo (Thread👇)

#BorderCrisis Peak, #Mexico Cooperation, and Judicial Wrangling

The year began with President Trump declaring a #NationalEmergency at the southern #Border.…
The #BorderCrisis escalated, and in May, nearly 133,000 #IllegalAliens were apprehended by #BorderPatrol, with a further 11,000 presenting at ports of entry without legal documentation.

By the end of fiscal 2019, almost 1 million people had entered the US illegally.
Over 600,000 of them were either individuals within a family unit or unaccompanied minors—both vulnerable populations that often arrived sick and required more care than #BorderPatrol was set up to provide.

There is a huge #MeToo movement waiting to happen in the Border Patrol. I am saddened that .@USBPChief did not make this happen. This is everyday life for women in this agency. I know first hand.…
Very proud of this agent for filing charges. I will go be by her side if she asks. She will be retaliated against the rest of her career.

1. The border wall construction is progressing marvelously. 44,000 panels have now been installed already!

#BorderWall's happening!
2. Unable to scale the new #BorderWall & flee back to Mexico, 2 men who entered the U.S. illegally near San Diego were arrested by #BorderPatrol. Barriers give agents the time they need to respond and contain illicit activity at the immediate border. @CBP
3. Many thanks President Trump and all involved with the Great Wall! ❤️🇺🇸

A #BorderPatrol agent holds a migrant child at the Central Processing Facility in Donna, TX. Behind the photo: On July 17, McAllen USBP agents encountered a group of 12 people comprised of family units and unaccompanied children who turned themselves in.
Record checks revealed an individual traveling with his alleged son had 2 previous immigration arrests in El Paso Sector just in the past month. Given the recent apprehensions and the age of the child, Agents requested the assistance of HSI to administer a rapid DNA test.
The test revealed there is no parent-child relationship. The man admitted he was not the child’s father, but knew the mother and had permission to the take the child. The man admitted that it is common knowledge in Honduras that if you bring a child, you will be released.

1 A photographic look at Pence @VP visit to 2 TX detention centers w 7 #GOP senators. A thread about photo access and visual framing in an age of hate and hysteria. The entourage facing US handiwork without game faces. (screenshot: @Reuters)
2 Let's be mindful of goal: to counteract shocking pix from last 2 urgent @DHSOIG (random) inspection visual reports, the @HispanicCaucus pix from Clint, & #BorderPatrol FB scandal. Paradoxically, aim is to show previous scenes inaccurate, yet still "tough stuff" (& blame Dems).
3 One of goals of @VP trip was to insulate/defend #BorderPatrol from reports about its almost 10k member private racially/sexually toxic FB group. Did address this in context of border visit day before in San Diego in response to q's. Via @joshdawsey @washingtonpost pool report.

1/ We got our hands on screenshots from a secret FB group for current and former Border Patrol agents. They joke about migrant deaths, including the death of a teen in their care, and post racist, sexist memes.

Here's what we found.
2/ These are responses from #BorderPatrol agents to a post of a news story about a 16-year-old Guatemalan migrant who died in May while in custody at a Border Patrol station in Weslaco, Texas.
3/ Here, agents joke about throwing burritos at Latino members of Congress who are scheduled to visit a troubled Border Patrol facility today.

"The smugglers will transport people that aren't turning themselves into #BorderPatrol. They sometimes stash hundreds of people in square footage that's really equipped for about four or five people."

"Just imagine a 20 by 20 space and having 70 people go in that space…That was one of the most horrific structures I've seen since I've been doing this job, and I've been doing border security and enforcement for over 24 years."

ICYMI: We just announced a guilty plea by Moayad Heider Mohammad Aldairi, a Jordanian national, for smuggling Yemeni nationals into the United States across our unsecured southern border. He even provided them disguises to blend into the U.S. population. 1/
They were headed to U.S. cities like New York and Chicago when they were caught by #BorderPatrol. 2/
This case shows that Border Security is National Security. It is a troubling loophole in our vetting system that nationals from countries home to large terrorist groups can simply wade across the Rio Grande and get into the U.S. if they manage to evade #BorderPatrol. 3/

Out with #BorderPatrol in Mission, Texas, and just caught 7 Chinese, 1 Mexican, and 1 El Salvadoran minor. All trying to evade capture. Chinese man said he paid $15k for the whole package (flights to Mexico, smuggled across border)
Only one of the Chinese people would speak to us. Thank you to our colleague who translated by phone! out with #BorderPatrol in McAllen, Texas.
The Chinese man said he plans to claim asylum from persecution, but couldn’t say why he didn’t just fly straight into the United States and do that. He said a friend in Beijing put him in contact with a smuggler. #borderpatrol Mission, Texas. @rgv3307

Up until three weeks ago I was a #border/ #immigration reporter working in #ElPaso. Let me tell you why President Trump’s visit to the #Borderland is so problematic. Follow this thread for more.
Honestly, @DrToddACurry put it best. #ElPaso has been the President’s “petri dish” for #immigration policies. Let’s take a look shall we?
Starting Sept.2017 @LasAmericasIAC starts reporting parent/children separation, despite legal documents showing relation. There was little I, as a journalist, could do when both parent & child were out of reach for interview & @ICEgov wasn’t talking.…

A 7-year-old Guatemalan girl died in #BorderPatrol custody after crossing with her father & 161 other migrants in the #NewMexico Bootheel. @DHSgov officials just tried to explain to reporters how remote & dangerous the region is, but it's hard to convey if you haven't seen it.
I've been covering the #Bootheel for years. Central American #migrants have been arriving for years, but not in the numbers seen in the past three months. When the latest group arrived, 4 agents were there to meet them. FOUR. The group included 50 unaccompanied minors.
So, for those who don't know the #Bootheel, its three north-south mountain chains or its two north-south roads, the tiny #AntelopeWells port of entry or the #BorderPatrol forward operating base that is barely staffed, here are some stories by me & @rosalesquique
