#BorderCrisis Peak, #Mexico Cooperation, and Judicial Wrangling

The year began with President Trump declaring a #NationalEmergency at the southern #Border. theepochtimes.com/year-in-review…
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.

#Antisemitic Incident !!!

#Belgium #Aalst

The #Belgian city of #Aalst returns the #award of its #carnival as a #Worldheritage Site.
Background are allegations of #racism and #antisemitism.
Mayor Christoph D'Haese said that one has had enough of the "grotesque #complaints" and let the #carnival be #deleted from the list. He thus came before a decision of @UNESCO before.
he had already considered removing the #Aalst #Carnival from World Heritage at the upcoming mid-month meeting.
The controversy has been going on since #spring. At that time D'Haese defended a float of the procession,

Loads of noise re: #Brexit & N.Ireland right now. No need to add to that -
But worth pausing to listen to what those in the region most affected are saying.

@BorderBrexit They're results of an online survey (475 respondents) from both sides @BorderIrish, conducted by @QUBelfast @milena_komarova & me for @europe_icban.

It shows rising anxieties re: a hard border & #NoDeal are having tangible effects in decisions & actions in border region.

2/12
@BorderBrexit @BorderIrish @QUBelfast @milena_komarova @europe_icban The survey confirms #Brexit is already having an impact on life on both sides of the border.

Respondents report economic changes (e.g. job losses, business disinvestment, problems in labour recruitment) plus rising concerns about the #peace process & future stability.

An open letter from a 'Border Bishop', Rt Revd John McDowell, to the Prime Minister @BorisJohnson in @Telegraph. ✍️

A powerful read, coming from @churchofireland Diocese of Clogher, which literally transcends the border.

What it says must be heard.

telegraph.co.uk/politics/2019/…
@BorisJohnson @Telegraph @churchofireland Why write?
"the alternative would be to simply wither in the silence of exhaustion."

Why the concern?
"Expressed in the starkest terms, the Border is the background against which all political and much cultural life in Northern Ireland... is worked out."

2/4
@BorisJohnson @Telegraph @churchofireland "The long term well-being of men & women... all along the #border requires & deserves a clearly spelt-out, sustainable agreement between both sides.
This is so they have not only that material basis necessary for civilised living but also hope for their children’s future."

1/ Several hundred migrants a day spill out of overcrowded border detention centers that no longer have the bandwidth to handle them. We went to San Antonio to see where they go afterwards. Here’s what we found out. #texas #border bit.ly/2xvNfVb
2/ Many of the migrants end up at a new migrant resource center in San Antonio, hastily opened inside of an old Quiznos to accommodate the influx. The center has served more than 20,000 in the past three months. bit.ly/2xvNfVb
3/ Often, these migrants have no money and no place to go. After his journey to San Antonio, one migrant only had $2 left; he needed to get from there to Portland, Maine by Tuesday to make it to his check-in with immigration officials. bit.ly/2xvNfVb

Karen Wheeler (formerly of UK govt #Border Delivery group) made some interesting points at @ifgevents #IfGBrexit today.*
Here's a v.brief summary.
1/5

*[so did @AllieRenison and @Lorand_Bartels too, you won't be surprised to hear]
She said UK govt has been trying to guide UK businesses in prep for #NoDeal but particularly difficult for NI.
'Cos v. unclear how IRL wd deal with border.

Without knowing arrangements on the other side, it is extremely difficult for cross-border traders to prepare/comply.

2/5
This leaves NI businesses at a heavy disadvantage in a No Deal, being only prepared for the UK side of trade.

Worsened, she noted, by high number of small businesses in cross-border trade.

Unilateral policy of the UK for land border in a No Deal thus 'somewhat difficult'.

While it's rare for Mercy Corps to comment on U.S. domestic politics, our experience working with children who have lived through trauma leaves us deeply troubled by reports of conditions for migrant children at the border.
It is imperative that providers responsible for the care of detained young migrants provide access to high-quality mental health and psychosocial support services, in addition to following basic principles of decency in how migrants are treated.
These children are likely to have experienced toxic stress for extended periods of time—the staff who are in contact with them must be trained accordingly. Otherwise, these toxic psychological events may affect them for life.

I've not done any #Brexit #border slides for a while.
Here's an effort to outline in as simple a way as possible what each of the main scenarios would mean for movement of goods across the UK's land & sea borders.
1/5
[DM me with an email address if you need a grayscale version]
In a Transition Period, following the #WithdrawalAgreement, the movement of goods between the UK and EU remains free flowing.
During this time, the negotiations on the future UK-EU trade agreement will be underway.
2/5
If at the end of the Transition Period, there is no UK-EU FTA close enough to avoid a hard Irish border, the backstop will kick-in on a temporary basis.
It has both NI-specific and UK-wide dimensions to minimise controls needed across UK land & sea borders.

#Tourism is a major source of inbound FDI, and tourist expenditures help fuel the USA🇺🇸 economy...⬇️⬇️⬇️
...in particular, tourism from #Mexico🇲🇽 - primarily via land #border crossings, as well as air - are a major component of US' international tourist market⬇️⬇️⬇️ (one that is often overlooked in the overly-simplistic policy discussions about US-Mexico relations)...
...in Los Angeles, nearly one-quarter of international visitors were from #Mexico in 2018, making Mexican tourist (again) the top inbound international market. Imagine what would happen if US policy was focused more on encouraging this market??

Here's how to end the border crisis:
1. @realDonaldTrump enters an executive order under 8 USC 1182 that stops ALL IMMIGRATION for 180 days.
2. @POTUS notifies foreign countries our borders are closed.
3. Notify Mexico that if they can't keep people from crossing, we
will establish a perimeter on their side of the border at least two miles wide that we will secure by any means necessary to protect our sovereignty. Send the military to fly it, secure it and patrol it.
4. Stop all public assistance to illegals. Round them up, bus them back.
5. Keep families together on bus deep into Mexico
6. No TAX DOLLARS for any groups helping "resettlements."Catholic charities and others have turned it into billion dollar business
7. VOTE OUT OF OFFICE EVERY SENATOR OR CONGRESSMAN WHO CRAMMED THE HORRIBLE SPENIDING BILL THROUGH

ALERT: You may hear reports that @CBPSouthTexas is releasing hundreds of immigrants & asylum seekers from detention in the Rio Grande Valley, including dozens of children. We are monitoring the situation. Follow along for more information as this situation develops #RGV
What we know: @CBPSouthTexas claims that their processing centers are full because ICE refuses to take any more transfers. Because of this they have no choice but to release hundreds of people to the bus station and humanitarian centers. We have reason to believe this is not true
In last year’s family separation crisis, @CBP and @DHSgov sent parents apprehended in South Texas all over the country because of alleged spacing issues. There is nothing to indicate that things are different now in terms of capacity.
