Why at 4:30a am I in a Lyft to BWI airport, fleeing the Baltimore humidity on #July4 for the greater heat of El Paso?

Full statement is attached. Basically, #CitizenPresence is the reason. Making sure moral outrages of the camps are before our consciousness. Follow my day here.
If they make a movie Davening [praying] in Airports I'll be in line. White privilege: no one looks at me. Today is #July4& also #RoshChodesh, the start of a new month.

I say Hallel, the collection of Psalms celebrating special days. "You freed my bonds." "I called from depths."
And a specially long psalm to end the prayers of the day, mentioning the blessing of food. "Bread satisfies people's hearts." Wine, oil and bread. The basics migrants look for. What our cruel government denies them in the camps.

New month, new possibilities for change, Exoduses.

Heading to the new "We Build the Wall" border fence today in El Paso. What do you want to know about it? And what does this piece of wall symbolize to you?
Almost done. Paved Border Patrol road also going in. #WeBuildTheWall #ElPaso
The U.S boundary as marked by the green sign through the wall. #WeBuildtheWall #ElPaso

So I was traveling for work, and I happened to turn the hotel TV on Monday night. It was initially turned to Fox News 🙄 and just then the #TrumpRally in #ElPaso was on. I watched for a few minutes and happened to catch the following sequence...
#TrumpRallyElPaso
Trump decries "fake news" and specifically points out the press section.
#StochasticTerrorism
Minutes later, a Trump supporter in a #MAGA hat attacks a BBC journalist.

We are lucky this time that it wasn't worse. With things out there like "Day of the Brick," it's easy to predict that attacks on journalists will continue, and worsen.

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.
