It is impossible to adequately convey the inhumanity of our country's relentless assault on #asylum protections on the southern border, but grateful for the opportunity to share with @hanjaneway our perspective in @NEJM @NEJMPerspec. /1

nejm.org/doi/full/10.10…
The "Remain In Mexico" policy of returning asylum seekers to dangerous border cities in Mexico -- where they cannot access basic legal, social, or medical services -- is an affront to US federal law as well as international law. /2 @ACLU

There are already over 1100 documented cases of murder, rape, torture, kidnapping, and other violent assaults against asylum seekers and migrants forced to remain in #Mexico under #MPP. @humanrights1st /3

#1 O @washingtonpost de domingo (5) trouxe boa reportagem explicando como os traficantes se adaptam para superar as dificuldades. A "mais recente" é o uso da #Guatemala como principal entreposto na América Central para cocaína embarcada na #Venezuela.
washingtonpost.com/world/2020/07/…
#2 O fenômeno não é exatamente novo, como se vê no levantamento feito pelos #EUA em 2010 (que também está no livro "Hugo Chávez, o espectro). O que parece estar acontecendo é que os traficantes trocaram #Honduras pela #Guatemala. O que não mudou é a origem: #Venezuela.
#3 A reportagem destaca outro detalhes interessante da operação. Dezenas aeronaves são encontradas abandonados na floresta. O negócio é tão rentável que os traficantes descartam os aviões, geralmente roubados em países da região, inclusive no #Brasil.

En estos tuits confirmo que el presidente del Congreso @AllanRodriguezE MINTIÓ y ENGAÑÓ a la población el viernes 26 de junio; lo demostraré con pruebas que salieron del mismo Congreso. 1/8
El viernes 26 de junio de 2020, a las 15:35, la Corte Suprema de Justicia notificó al Congreso que sí procedía investigar a 4 magistrados de la Corte de Constitucionalidad.

En este documento se observa bien el sello de “recibido”. 2/8
Pero antes de ser notificados, Allan Rodríguez y sus cómplices ya estaban reunidos para agilizar la investigación contra 4 magistrados de la CC e instalar la Comisión Pesquisidora.

@AllanRodriguezE dejó en evidencia todo un plan de la Corte Suprema y el Congreso. 3/8

Sábado 25 de abril del 2015: inicia un movimiento social contra la corrupción en #Guatemala al haber sido descubierta una red de defraudación aduanera. Desde Facebook y Twitter, se lanza la 1ra convocatoria bajo la consigna de #RenunciaYa para ir a la Plaza de la Constitución.
A partir de ahí, la movilización va tomando fuerza al sumar más actividades en la plaza, más debates en espacios mediáticos, más demandas ciudadanas, más "hashtags".
Y surge entonces una pregunta sobre la relevancia de estas etiquetas en este movimiento, qué mensajes sintetizan y popularizan estas a través de las redes sociodigitales; incluso, cómo llegan a permear a medios de comunicación, a verse en camisetas y carteles en la plaza.

Bernie is RIGHT -there is a dictatorship in #China & #Cuba AND also to remind that the US has helped overthrow governments in #Chile and #Guatemala.

Biden is WRONG: Obama and four previous US presidents supported the authoritarian regime of #Mubarak in #Egypt

#DemocraticDebate
Give it to him, Bernie!

There is NOTHING radical about wanting healthcare for everyone!

#DemocraticDebate
Want to talk who supports dictators & authoritarians?

Trump calls Sisi “my favourite dictator” & was in #India today encouraging fascism.

5 US presidents -GOP & Democrat- propped up Mubarak’s 30yr tyranny.
US has “good” & “bad” dictators #demdebates2020

2019 in Review📅Article by @charlottecuthbo (Thread👇)

#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.

The “military grade weapons” are those the United States sold to Guatemala over a 36 year period beginning in 1960-1996. Their gov’t was fighting with the farmers. Eventually, an armistice was reached, & the farmers went back to their fields. The gov’t police had no incomes.
2/ What to do? Sell them to the Cartels, of course. The mortars, rocket grenades, and heavy artillery they possess came straight from our own government during those years. Please watch. #Guatemala #Mexico #Cartels
3/ No doubt, our government did not fully appreciate the long-term consequences of sending #Guatemala aid in the form of weapons after we had deposed their dictator in 1954. As with any other country where we have meddled, there is always a penalty for inference. Now the Cartels

#Honduras trial in #SDNY has just resumed - Judge Castel joked with the jury about the New York Mets, who fired their manager yesterday, and now the questioning about police and Prez' brother Tony Hernandez continues innercitypress.com/sdny3hondurast… - live tweet thread
@MatthewLeeICP @sdnylive @InSightCrime @ElMundoSV @Mundo_PN @UnivisionNews @hondurassol AUSA: Did there come a time when Lozano told you he was going to be transferred?
Witness: Yes. To Tegucigalpa. I asked Tony Hernandez to help get him transferred there, it was a more important location in terms of cocaine trafficking
@MatthewLeeICP @sdnylive @InSightCrime @ElMundoSV @Mundo_PN @UnivisionNews @hondurassol AUSA: Did you speak directly to the defendant about the transfer?
Witness: Yes. In 2007, I paid him $5,000.
AUSA: Did you have any discussions with the defendant about the payment.
Witness: Yes, he confirmed to me he had received the payment.

Hace unos días fuimos a las playas de #Monterrico en el #Pacífico de #Guatemala. Conocimos a una familia de #Patzicía, #Chimaltenango.
Abro hilo...
Carmen Chopox (azul) llegó junto a su hija y sus cuatro nietos, luego de hablar por unos minutos de su paseo, nos dijo que querían una foto y que si sabíamos en dónde había una fotógrafo, no encontramos. Yo me ofrecí a hacer varias imágenes y de las cuales escogí esta.
Se las enseñé y les gustó mucho. Nos explicaron que vivían en aldea Pahuit en #Chimaltenango, luego de ello se fueron apresurados, pues habían llegado en un bus de excursión. Nos despedimos.

* * State of siege declared in Guatemala * *
#Guatemala president Jimmy Morales just declared a state of siege in Izabal & areas of other departments. Three soldiers were killed yesterday in Izabal. There are multiple contradictory versions of events and most contradict Morales'.
The state of siege covers the entire department of Izabal plus 9 municipalities in Alta Verapaz, 4 in Zacapa, 2 in El Progreso, and 1 in Baja Verapaz. It is a huge swath of territory in eastern Guatemala. Much of it is Maya Q'eqchi' territory. Guess I'm doing a thread now... /2
The state of siege, established by executive decree following an emergency cabinet meeting, will last 30 days, but could be cut short or extended. The decree states that it both (a) is in effect immediately, & (b) needs to be ratified by congress (just sent) within three days. /3
