Late in El Paso but wanted to share few things I brought up on @chrislhayes' special.

Trump's idea of an emergency is a completely foreign idea here.

People of El Paso *are* people of Juarez.

100K go between the cities daily for work and school -- saw it live tonight. #inners
To understand why we're here, understand one word: deterrence.

It's been bipartisan US border policy for decades, starting with Clinton.

Doesn't work.

Yes, crossings dropped, but deaths increased as migrants took more dangerous journeys here.

Trump wants more of it. #inners
Our only border "crisis" is a *humanitarian* one of large groups of asylum seekers crossing in deadly, remote areas.


If Trump actually wanted to know, he'd put resources towards processing them legally, not into metering, nor DoD and CBP shows-of-force. #inners
