#wuhanvirus More than 40 direct #China flights will arrive in Australia today. Only flights from Wuhan are being screened by biosecurity, but those flights have stopped. Why aren’t ALL direct flights being screened? #auspol #aushealth #bordersecurity
#wuhanvirus now reported to have killed 18 people. 630 confirmed infections. Of 22 Chinese provinces & 11 other regions, only 7 have not reported confirmed infections. 5 Chinese cities are locked down but hundreds of millions of people will still travel in Lunar New Year period.
The large number of direct flights from #China to Australia carry thousands of family, tourist and business travellers. Australia will also shortly see a large influx of Chinese students at beginning of the academic year.

DHS Sec. (Acting) Kevin McAleenan's resignation is official tomorrow, November 11th.

Under the Federal Vacancies Reform Act, there is a strict 210 day window during which an agency can be run by an unconfirmed "acting" appointee.

Kirstjen Nielson resigned from that position on April 10th. The 210 day window expired on November 6th, 2019, creating a five day window during which McAleenan was/is still employed, but apparently not legally allowed to do his job.

McConnell and others will now have to spend Veterans Day trying to fast track the confirmation of a guy named Chad Wolf, who is an acting undersecretary, so they can appoint him to run DHS, also in an acting capacity, without being in violation of the Vacancies Reform Act,

"Most of these family members we’re allowing in, we can’t properly vet. We’re letting in tens of thousands a day and we have no idea who they really are.

Only 15% of those coming in have valid asylum claims."

"Every day, my presidency will defend American families, we will defend America’s workers … we will defend the American way of life and we will always defend America’s borders—because without borders, we don’t have a country…
…The lawless chaos on our southern border provides a lucrative cashflow to some of the most dangerous criminal organizations on the planet. Deadly cartels constantly violate our borders…
…Our Border Patrol, our ICE agents, our law enforcement - the job they do, and they don’t have the backup of a wall in many cases - the job they do is incredible."

@POTUS @realDonaldTrump
speaks about #BorderSecurity and the need for a #BorderWall in his speech at #CPAC2019.

President #Trump’s declaration is an alarming and legally dubious attempt to sidestep the constitutional authority granted to Congress, the co-equal branch of government where debates on immigration reform and #bordersecurity are held in the light of day.… Statement on President Trum...
There was a time when Republicans and Democrats sat at the table to discuss comprehensive #immigrationreform. Those discussions have given way to unilateral and reprehensible actions that separate families, imprison children and launch tear-gas at exhausted mothers and families.
This declaration doesn’t do a single thing to make our nation safer. All it does is further divide Americans, erode our system of checks and balances and advance the president’s agenda of fear and misinformation. We should all be outraged by this president’s abuse of power.

Today is #HumanTraffickingAwarenessDay, which I just realized.

Having visited the border & talked to local law enforcement, Customs & Border Patrol, and local citizens along the border beginning in 2014, the human trafficking issue was one that horrified me the most. 1/25
In 2014, had we included too many the issues of modern-day slavery in our Border States of America documentary, people would not have accepted it as real.
It is difficult to believe and accept such problems are happening in America - the land of the free.
#BuildTheWall 2/25
Sadly, #HumanTrafficking IS a reality in America and across the world. (Thank you #HumanTraffickingAwarenessDay for bringing attention to it.)

(Keep reading thread for links to article about the problem.) 3/25

"...From tiny villages to seething metropolises ... we are most of us longing for love. It’s hard wired into our brains by both biology and culture. So what happens when the object of our affections hails from beyond the U.S.-Mexico border?…
Please check out this 2-part project I worked on with @pepperpaw about love across the U.S.-Mexico border, #BorderSecurity #Refugees and #Immigration…
Also, thank you to @MIIS for the support in funding our work.

You made her smile in heaven tonight @realDonaldTrump, thank you. #BorderSecurity #BuildTheWall
Evelyn Rodriguez died because an unhinged woman was trashing the memorial of her murdered teenage daughter. She and her friend’s lives were cut short by MS-13. A single crime has more than one victim and #citizenlivesmatter #AngelMoms
None of these women needed to die. #BuildTheWall…
