Y’all remember the @CNN video and the Jaeson Jones video that I called into question? Remember I said OIG or OPR would look into it even before @BPUnion threatened me? Remember this tweet? 👇🏻
2) Here’s the file # for the complaint. JIC File# 202104885. This is the lead investigator: Daniel P. Altman
Executive Director for Investigative Operations
Office of Professional Responsibility
U.S. Customs and Border Protection
3) This is on his LinkedIn profile:
4) Border Patrol has stuffed OIG & OPR with ex-agents for decades. We had a saying in the Patrol, we bleed green. Also, you should be aware that Mr. Altman has stated in an email that the complainant has no right to see their investigation, their findings nor the outcome.
5) He further stated that she may file a FOIA. This my friends is the definition of a secret state police. When they say investigations into them are national security and complainants have no right to know, that’s a freaking secret investigation.

🧵Okay, I haven’t talked much about this experience because I had to sit with it a while. I get invited to speak at all sorts of events, but this was the first time I’d ever spoken to a Lutheran group who happens to be in the George Floyd murder area. The congregation is mostly
2) white and older. Like 50 +, so like my age. I ended up having to come back and do another hour to get it all in and the questions. Their focus was my journey from thinking I wasn’t racist and wanting to be a civil rights attorney before detouring & joining the Border Patrol.
3) How it was that I took this very different path that I was on. What it did to my soul and my mind and how it is coming to terms with that. So basically it’s my book. And I don’t know if this needs to be said by anyone. I don’t know if this is just some misguided

🧵Important highlights in this great amicus brief on our racist immigration law: “To claim that the Undesirable Aliens Act of 1929 was founded in anything but deep-seated racial animus is to ignore the words spoken on the Congressional floor in the 1920s that led to its passage.”
2) “The felony unauthorized reentry after deportation statute codified at 8 U.S.C. 1326, like its misdemeanor counterpart, codified in Section 1325, traces its origins to the 1920s.”
3) “That era saw increasingly vocal and active white resentment of other racial groups, a period so ra- cially fractious that it earned the moniker the ‘Tribal Twenties.’”

Sadly, @nytimes has chosen to not dig too hard here. Nothing mentioned about why @USBPChiefELC did not respond to the area that is not only covered in sensors, but has video surveillance as well. Agents normally respond in 4 minutes to this area. They don’t mention the fact 1)
2) that the 1st car that caught on fire stopped & many in that vehicle jumped into the 2nd vehicle. They failed to mention that agricultural workers who witnessed it & residents in Holtville are saying Border Patrol was following in an undercover vehicle.
3) They failed to investigate the witnesses who took video and shared it on the internet. All of which I have. They failed to ask @USBPChiefELC that if Border Patrol was not involved, why did the CIIT unit show up 1st immediately after paramedics? For those who do

🧵Thread in @nickmiroff’s & @washingtonpost misleading stats: While @nickmiroff is correct that @USBPChief apprehensions in March are a 15 year high, he failed to mention that 15 yrs ago the Patrol only had about 12K agents. Today, they have 20K.
2) He fails to mention that 70% of those crossing right now are being quickly returned because they are not processing people for asylum. They are still using Title 42 rules under Covid to quickly expel migrants. This processing takes 3-5 minutes a person.
3) Agents 15 years ago did not have private transportation companies that they do have today. This helps keep agents in the field. Agents 15 years ago did not have support of local and state authorities or National Guard that they do have today.

If you care about migrants, migrant children in particular, please stop using the “kids in cages” comment. I am the 1st to say that conditions are not acceptable. 1st to call out @USBPChief. But it is not correct or fair to say that they are again putting kids in cages right now.
2) At the moment, this is not the same as we saw under Trump or Obama. The pressure and outrage from the public has helped to create a slightly better processing facility. Let me explain before you lose your cool:
3) When unaccompanied children are encountered by @USBPChief, they are taken to these newer facilities called processing centers or soft-sided tents. This is where they get a quick medical check according to reports from journalists on the scene.

Thoughts listening to Lt. Zimmerman’s testimony in the #ChauvinTrial today: It took a lot of guts for him to testify to the truth today. All cops have been trained to not kneel on people’s necks or backs, especially when they are prone and handcuffed. Being in handcuffs 1)
2) means the subject is detained, in custody. The threat level diminishes drastically. If the person is resisting still, that’s easily controlled while they are handcuffed. Especially with 4 officers. More than anything, I noticed how the defense stated that witnesses
3) cannot speak to what it is to be a cop and feel the stresses they are under. A percentage of that is true, and a percentage of that does not matter. But then when they bring in a seasoned officer with more experience than Chauvin, then they say he can’t know what Chauvin
