Thread ⬇️
1️⃣ FUNDING

These promises of “extra spending” we hear every year never materialise

The reality: An NHS underfunded by by 30% since 2010

That’s 30 BILLION / year short

The recent ‘cash injection’ promised by the Tories, is STILL under what the 4% needed to stop further decline
2️⃣STAFFING

Dangerous staffing shortages across the NHS

40,000 nurses
10,000 Hospital DRs
7000 GPs

For years the govt have been warned about the worsening shortages

Their response:

Visa caps
Nursing bursary cut
Training budgets cut
Imposing unfair contracts on Junior DRs

Doing social media for @NewSanctuaryNYC means I rarely take a break from #immigration news. Every day the Trump administration looks for another way to cause harm to black & brown people. Thread highlights some of the current policies. We MUST not stop fighting back. #impeach 👇🏼
The Trump administration is doing another secretive pilot test in El Paso, this time “Prompt Asylum Claim Review,” a program to speed up deportation of #asylum seekers. washingtonpost.com/immigration/tr…
"These new policies have resulted in the separation of family units, lasting trauma and heartache, and shocking detention conditions for both children and adults."

No words can describe how I feel today. I have read the news about the bodies found in the back of a lorry with lots of horro. It brought back memories of my journey when we were stuck nearly to death in lorries and tankers and freezers with meat and chicken

Photo from 2015
The death of fellow humans whose bodies were found near Essex had me losing my mind. I was there before in 2015. I can fell what they have been through. I can hear them screaming to death because I was there. I can feel them clinging onto life but in-vain
bbc.co.uk/news/uk-englan…
The screams of these people still haunts me. I can never forget that moment when I touched death while being kept in the back of the freezer lorry. I can never forget the eyes of those who were with me on that tanker, no air, no light nothing but the smell of death

What does Jesus say about #migrants? He doesn't say help the stranger only if it's risk free, or convenient, or the stranger has the right papers, or is from the same ethnic or religious group. No, we are meant to show mercy to the stranger regardless.
That's one of the main points of Jesus's Parable of the Good Samaritan. The Samaritan who helps the beaten man does so at considerable risk to himself: he was exposing himself to robbers and beatings on the "Road to Jericho," a notoriously dangerous road. But he helps him anyway.
And the way that we treat strangers will be one litmus test for entrance into heaven. Because the way we treat strangers (and by that the Bible means refugees, migrants and displaced persons, with or without "papers") will, says Jesus, determine our entrance into heaven (Mt. 25).

Before there was that angry micro fence in El Paso, in November of 2015 Erik Prince, using Frontier Service Group as cover, pitched the idea of armed air tractors/helos, gunned up rat patrol Toyotas and fast boats to capture and put #migrants in camps. theintercept.com/2016/03/24/bla…
"In January, (Erik) Prince returned to Macau and opened an account at the Bank of China, ...It was not a personal account,” said the former U.S. intelligence official “He was doing it for the purpose of ... money laundering on behalf of the Libyans.”
"Prince told colleagues that he received preliminary approval for the border force from a senior Libyan official...The plan called for a series of “border security” bases housing intelligence centers, helicopters, surveillance airplanes, and weaponized vehicles."

L'info de la nuit US. #Trump persiste,signe et décrète même seul que relâcher les immigrants sans-papiers dans les villes démocrates sanctuaires est légal. Et assume le chantage fait aux démocrates (ou vous votez mes lois ou je vous envoie des migrants).RT
2) Cette volonté de #Trump de "renvoyer" les migrants sans-papiers dans les sanctuaires pour "punir" les démocrates de ne pas voter des lois plus dures sur l'#immigration est inédite. Il utilise les moyens de l'Etat comme menace pour forcer l'opposition.RT
3) Il y a dans cette nouvelle politique d'#immigration 1 triple transgression par rapport au statu quo ante. D'1 part, il continue de "présidentialiser" la politique migratoire contre sa propre administration hostile à ce transfert infaisable des sans-papiers vers les sanctuaires

1. Politicians are lying to you: For almost 10 years we had near zero percent #interest, #ECB & #FED printed billions of $ & € creating huge asset #bubbles in #stocks & #properties. On top thousands of foreigners bought "cheap" properties in GER.

#Habeck #Enteignungen
2. On top many cities, especially #Munich, allowed only few new properties to be build - For 3 new families that reached Munich only 1 new home was build!
This scarcity is by design, since it inflates the value of existing #properties, enriching the "haves".
#Habeck #Enteignungen
3. The next money printing scam are all the regulations that hit home-builders in the last plus 10 years: "Dämmung","energetische Sanierung" (to prevent loss of heat/energy) and more is expensive & thus reduces the numbers that can afford a home & increases #rents.

Ah, the #EuropeanParliamentElection knocks at the door! Let’s see who is #campaigning for what…In #Italy, a #rightwingcoalition calls for a #guaranteedincome, #largerpensions, and resistance to the heavy-handed #austerityprograms enforced by the #EuropeanUnion.
In #France, some #rightwinggroups champion #fight against #climatechange, decry #exploitation of #foreignworkers, growing #economicinequality. What about the #centerright and #centerleft parties? #Polls show they will lose their #majority, and the Euroskeptics bag 30+% of seats.
However, #Euroskeptic, like #populist, is a term that obscures more than it reveals. #Spain’s leftist #Podemos isn’t likely to break bread with #Italy’s rightist #NorthernLeague-#M5S, but both are considered #Euroskeptic. Some are really #wolves but wear #sheepskins.

1) New day #QDrop... #Qanon post No. 2745... @realDonaldTrump @WhiteHouse @POTUS
#Q links to #FoxNews & says "Buckle up!". It's looking good for a D5 info drop on the others that met secretly to plot against #POTUS with the use of a 25th Amendment scam.

2) Stepping back 4 an interesting footnote re: #QAnon post No. 2744...
When the verse numbers are totaled, they equal 55:17. If you've been watching #QDrops or any time you know the significance of 5 x5 & the number 17😉
3) #QAnon post No. 2746...
#LisaPage was removed from the #SC on 15th July 2017. July 21, 2017, The #Mooch was appointed #WHCommunicationsDirector. He began work on 25th July 2017 & was fired on the 31st. It's clear [5:5] that #Scaramucchi was a hired (& disposable) gun. Most all

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..

I keep being asked what #Dickens would have made of #Brexit. Charles & Catherine Dickens took their family to live in #Genoa, #Italy for a year (in 1844-1845) – something Brits will no longer be able to do after 29 March. #travel
Before moving to #Italy, Charles #Dickens employed Antonio Gallenga, a political #refugee from #Parma who had migrated to #London, to teach him Italian. In #Brexit Britain, Gallenga would no longer be allowed to work legally.
#Dickens wrote a #travelogue about his year in #Italy. ‘Pictures from Italy’ details the family’s travels through #Europe to their new home in #Genoa, & Dickens' #travels around the country. In #Brexit Britain Dickens would no longer have the right to work in another EU country.

People are slamming so-called fact checkers @NPR, @politico, for their overt bias in analyzing portions of President Trump’s #StateOfTheUnion speech. theepochtimes.com/state-of-the-u…
#NPR: The most egregious example was from @NPR, which provided a “fact check” of Trump’s statement praising the record-high number of women in Congress.

NPR responded to the statement by admitting it was completely true, but tried to inject partisanship into the equation.
#POLITICO: Despite @MSF_USA reporting in 2017 that 31% of female #migrants said they were sexually assaulted while traveling through #Mexico, @Politico rated the statement only “partly true.”

It was not made clear how the statement was only “partly true.”

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

#US @CBP lied about deploying #teargas because rocks were thrown and didn't deploy on those trying to cross border. @CBP on the top of the hill shooting rubber bullets at #migrants, medics and photographers and getting ready to throw #teargas. Filmed through whole in fence
You can see how far away @CBPSanDiego is from the wall and not even close to proximity of a hurled rock, which none were thrown. Shortly after they deployed #teargas on a group of photographers +100ft from the fence
@CBP deploying #teargas at #migrants at the #BorderWall. They put out a statement saying they didn't do so and they shot only at those throwing rocks. You don't see rocks thrown and can see they are way up high on a hill where rocks couldn't reach if they wanted. Fire starts

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

On a night of political turmoil, it’s such a delight to switch off Brexit and celebrate the work of ⁦@BarHumanRights⁩ and wave farewell to our wonderful Chair ⁦@Kirsty_Brimelow⁩, in conversation with the marvellous Baroness Helena Kennedy QC. #ThankYouKirsty
Lovely words of encouragement and thanks from @Kirsty_Brimelow on behalf of @BarHumanRights to our many partners in the room, to our hardworking Drafting Committee and to our student members, future human rights lawyers to keep checking a cycle of backsliding in #humanrights.
International trial observations, which @BarHumanRights specialise in conducting, throw a spotlight on specific #humanrights issues. @Kirsty_Brimelow talks about our work in Turkey this year, and her own trial observation in Bahrain, & Colombia.

Europe's border is not where you think it is. Here's why:
#humanrights #migration #refugees #IDS2018 see @visionscarto #map @CDB_77
1/5. From 2010 to 2014, the number of refugees and migrants coming to Europe increased from 60,000 to 280,000. The EU decided to crack down on migration by paying other countries to deal with migration for them.
2/5. The EU started making financial agreements with African strongmen and #dictators to ramp up #border security, technical aid and data collection. As a result, other countries are actually controlling the EU border, moving the border further south to #NorthAfrica.

La crise politique qui se déroule en #Belgique sur le Pacte Mondial pour les Migrations est lamentable pour quatre raisons (au moins). #GCM #thread
moustique.be/22283/accord-s…
1. Si la #Belgique ne signait pas, ce serait un terrible reniement et une attaque frontale contre les Nations Unies, alors que la Belgique vient d'être élue au Conseil de Sécurité. Ce texte incarne la raison d'être des Nations Unies : gérer ensemble les grands enjeux du moment.
2. Ce texte contient des avancées significatives pour une meilleure gestion des #migrations. Il représente un progrès majeur pour la prise en compte des migrations environnementales, notamment. Il associe pays industrialisés, émergents et en développement.

(⛔🚢BREAKING) NO WAY OUT. As fighting in #Tripoli rages on, this August just 1,300 #migrants left #Libya in an attempt to reach Europe by sea.

This is the LOWEST Summer figure since 2012.

#Libia
Migrants are trapped in #Libya, often in appalling conditions. Made even worse by the recent fighting in #Tripoli.
FOLLOW this crucial reporting by @sallyhayd. 👇

(⛔🚢BREAKING) Of the 742 that made it to Europe from #Libya this August, less than a third (234) disembarked in Italy. Of these, 190 were onboard an Italian Coast Guard ship during the "#Diciotti standoff".

Another 56% (416) disembarked in Malta.
12% (87) disembarked in Spain.

For the last 24 hours I've been texting & calling with refugees in Libya. 500 are apparently stuck in a Tripoli prison w/o food & water after heavy fighting broke out two days ago. They say their guards ran away, leaving them alone.
These refugees are men, women & children. They tried to cross the Mediterranean earlier this year, but were found by Italian boats, who turned them over to the EU-backed Libyan coastguard, who put them in prison. The conditions were already terrible before the fighting started.
Oh the phone earlier I could hear children crying & what sounded like bombing in the distance. The refugees say everyone's incredibly frightened. "We hear machine guns, tanks, big bombs, last night from the roof it was all fire."
