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.

'In the last of his major national addresses on the Democrat-created border impasse, the president offered the opposing party big wins on immigration. In exchange, he asked for common sense border security measures.

That’s how serious the president was.'

Exerpts from the article by @Harlan:

'But as she did with every offer from him, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) scornfully rejected President Trump’s attempt at compromise.

This time she did it before he even spoke.'
'As the effective leader of one of the country’s major parties, that’s her right.

But she can’t then claim to be interested in compromise or solutions.'

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

Assuming these parents are not mentally challenged, why are they putting their children in danger?

"Border Patrol fired off shots at a group trying to go through the fence. We ran and hid under train. They sent in CS gas. Babies are scared and crying."
They're all men trying to break through the fence. #NotAnInvasion

“a culture of impunity” among federal government agents charged with protecting immigrant children in their custody. <<<---
Quell Surprise - CBP investigated themselves and found all accusations "baseless". The ACLU filed a #FOIA request and it was DENIED. They had to file a LAWSUIT to get records. #OpDeathEaters
