A reprint from November, asking for your support-I am writing today to ask for your support for our action at the border to oppose the murderous policy of MPP, or Remain in Mexico.
We have scheduled our Witness action to begin on 1/12. We plan a sustained effort which will protest the tent courts in Brownsville, TX, where injustice is handed out every day, dashing the hopes of desperate, vulnerable people encamped across the international bridge...2/ the city of Matamoros, in Mexico. The willing, with passports, will also be able to cross during our vigil, to see firsthand the cruelty inflicted in our name. This is not voyeurism. You will be expected to report to everyone you know about what you see.3/
And what you see will not just break your heart, but also arm you with the righteous anger you will need to make your voices heard.

For those who come to Witness: we will act as a community. We will support each other. We will protect each other.4/
Please contact @Julie Swift and @Karla Rader Barber, and let them know your plans. They will reach out to you, to get and to give more information.#MPP #WitnessAtTheBorder
Those who want to support our effort, but cannot come, can help by supporting us financially, through our GoFundMe Witness:Tornillo-Target MPP,… .6/
Also consider supporting CarbonTrace, @CarbonTraceProd, the company that made the film about Tornillo & is in need of funds to film with us at the border. We need the story told. Your contribution to them can put them on the ground with us, and that will amplify our effort8
We are at a critical moment. This policy exposes families to rape, kidnap and murder, not just hunger and disease. The persecution of refugees has risen in a crescendo of hate. Our response, fueled by love, must meet the evil on its front lines. At the border. We must end MPP 8/8
