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.

UN Human Rights commissioner regarding US immigration policies:

"The thought that any State would seek to deter parents by inflicting such abuse on children is unconscionable."

The @UNHumanRights spoke out early last year about Session, republican GOP and Trump's inhumane policy of separating families..
The Trump administration stopped cooperating with UN investigations into human rights violations in America theguardian.com/law/2019/jan/0…

1/ Words are important: this is not just a “humanitarian crises,” it is an EPIDEMIC WAITING TO HAPPEN. #Immigrants & #Illegals sneaking across our borders carry TUBERCULOSIS, DENGUE & YELLOW FEVER, polio, BUBONIC PLAGUE, malaria, LEPROSY, MEASLES, mumps, rubella, DIPTHERIA,
2/ STD’S, HIV, AIDS, TYPHOID, & a children’s eye disease the CDC CANNOT IDENTIFY OR TREAT. These children are then put into our PUBLIC SCHOOL SYSTEM. The CDC PREDICTS America will have a 50% TUBERCULOSIS RATE if our #Immigration goes unchecked. CLOSING THE BORDERS MAY BE

2) @SecNielsen attempted to deliver her humanitarian crisis Presentation during a meeting with Congressional leadership in the @WhiteHouse Situation Room. @TheDemocrats' leadership refused to let Sec. Nielsen present vetted #BorderSecurity information:

3) In this meeting obstructionist @SpeakerPelosi forced a tense confrontation, interrupting Nielsen’s presentation on #BorderSecurity and Illegal #Immigration, telling her “I reject your facts!” @DickDurbin and other obstructionists followed in protest.

A multi-tweet thread on Potus' Oval Office message: 1) Saying there is a national security crisis on the border does a huge disservice to how the US & #Mexico have worked together since 9/11 to ensure our border is not used by terrorists to undermine our common security. 1/7
2) Per Customs and Border Protection data: CBP encountered only 6 #immigrants at Ports of Entry along the US-MEX border in the first half of FY2018 whose names were on a federal government list of known or suspected terrorists. 2/7
3) Overall, 41 people on the Terrorist Screening Database were encountered at the border with #Mexico from October 1, 2017, to March 31, 2018, BUT 35 of them were U.S. citizens or lawful permanent residents. Six were classified as non-U.S. persons. 3/7

The Trump admin is using Central & South American #Immigrants as scapegoats to drum up fear & xenophobia in their base, which is primarily white, and terrified at the idea of white people no longer being the majority in the US. 1/7 #BorderWall
Since his campaign kickoff, Trump had demonized Latino immigrants as violent criminals.

This gives bigots and #whitesupremacists (public & closeted) incentive to vote GOP to MAGA, which is code for "make America white again". 2/7
It's legal to present yourself at a border crossing point to apply for #asylum, so Customs & Border Patrol make it difficult to do so.

#AsylumSeekers are forced to wait for weeks in squalid conditions. Desperation builds. 3/7

Thread: While the world is shaken by the #murder of #Bulgarian journalist #ViktoriaMarinova, it might be a good time to talk about the country itself. #BG ranks lower in #PressFreedom than both #Hungary or #Poland. The country is the poorest and most corrupt in the #EU. 1/13
Yet, the #EU somehow does not think #Bulgaria is a big issue, due to the fact that PM (and ex-bodyguard of #Soviet General Secretary Todor Zhivkov) @BoykoBorissov "behaves", unlike #Orban and #Kaczyński, who openly challenge the Union. Borissov's party is also member of @EPP 2/13
#MediaFreedom-wise, 80% of the print media in the country is owned by MP #Peevski, whose pro-gov tabloids (with the generous help of other pro-gov actors who get nice rewards in return such as property #Blaskov) stifle #opposition and manage vast #antiEU smear campaigns 3/13

I went to bed feeling betrayed--perhaps even enraged. I woke up, still feeling betrayed--but resolved. I still believe #AnitaHill. I still believe #ChristineBlaseyFord I still believe #survivors #women They have knocked us down, but not out. I still believe in the power of us.
Our perpetrators tried to stifle our voices too--and, WE ARE NOT GOING BACK. We will not be silenced or moved. Today, survivors will keep organizing, sharing our painful and hard truths until the very last hour, and then we'll take our fight to the ballot box.
Survivors matter and we do vote--and run for office too! We have been ignored, but not silenced #midterms A vote to support #Kavanaugh confirms more than one man, to the highest court in the land, you are also confirming #privilege #entitlement #injustice

As we get closer to midterms, trolls and bots will push #FakeNews more than ever.

Here are some tips for spotting and fact checking possible propaganda or disinformation posts on social media. 1/9 #MondayMotivation
The tweet above that says McCain admitted to being a war criminal is an example of disinformation.

When you read the @snopes article, it's clear that McCain was talking about a false confession he wrote while a POW as a result of torture. 2/9 goo.gl/owo1Pb
A good example of propaganda is using #mollietibbits' tragic murder to paint #immigrants as criminals and advocate for anti-immigrant policies. 📰goo.gl/r6A1aS

They want to elicit an emotional response in working class Americans: to fear immigrants. 3/9

Time to talk about women's reproductive health and dispel a few myths. I'm not one for long threads, so bear with me here. I have a lot of thoughts on this.

The main thing I think gets lost in partisan rhetoric is that we ALL want there to be fewer abortions. But how?
#RoeVWade
2) Let's start with a universal truth.

🔥Making abortions illegal does not make them less common.🔥

Ever.

#LegalSafeRare

dailykos.com/stories/2018/3… Abortion rates are not lower in places where it is illegal.
3)
Just in case you thought this was an American phenomena.

It's not.

Other countries have learned the hard way that punitive measures don't work.
#RoevWade

economist.com/international/… Abortion is as common in countries where it is illegal as it is where it is legal.

We have seen our country take a nosedive into becoming "Fourth Reich."

United States of America is now running internment camps.

Our concern now is all the children who are in these camps.

➡️So, where did they come from & why did their parents bring them here?

Tornillo, TX is on US/Mexico border. There is “tent city facility” setup there. Facility is housing 326 children (312 boys, 14 girls):

162 from Guatemala

117 from Honduras

40 from El Salvador

4from “other countries”

3 from Mexico

So if less than 1% are from Mexico, why?

Reason - out of 195 countries:

El Salvador has 2nd highest rate of violent deaths.

Honduras has 4th highest rate of violent deaths.

Guatemala has 17th highest rate of violent deaths.

This is Trump's Amerikkka. This is a perfect example of why Trump's outrageous #racist statements are NOT DISTRACTIONS.

Not people? So it's okay to separate children from their parents indefinitely?
