🧵 I spent 9/11 in the desert east of San Diego in Ocotillo, CA today with Water Stations. We split into multiple groups and made sure all of the barrels had water and picked up any trash left behind. Image
2) It was 105 degrees today. My partner was George. He is 82 yrs old, a former modern dance instructor for 40 yrs at San Diego State. He’s strong as an ox, and a kind man. He four wheels like a Border Patrol agent who doesn’t care what happens to the truck. Image
3) George said this area flooded back in 1976. Took a whole bunch of houses from Ocotillo. We are a few miles north of the border at this point, riding west along the old railroad tracks. ImageImage

🧵9/11 twenty years later: I am of the opinion that 9/11 was our Reichstag fire. Not in the sense of who was involved, but in the sense that the government used it to justify building a giant department (DHS) to chip away at our rights & install authoritarianism in the name of
2) stopping terrorism. Anti-immigration groups and agencies that enforce immigration laws rightly recognized 9/11 as an opportunity to use America’s culture of racism to stoke fear.Agencies were re-made with honest attempts to prevent and better react to another terrorist threat.
3) At the same time, white supremacists saw an opportunity to change these agencies with a different goal in mind. Remember that many of those wearing uniforms and badges today were not even born in 2001. They have grown up completely in this culture of justifying their actions

🧵CW: Rape.
This is why I came out about my rape in the academy by my classmate and fellow agent. This is why I say @USBPChief has a robust and encouraged rape culture. Not for my own justice because it’s too late for that, but because it continues, because they rape migrants too

This is the case from Nogales, AZ I have been talking about. Sounds like ⁦@USBPChiefTCA⁩ illegal CIT unit covered things up. Sounds like Nogales Police helped. These CIT teams are illegal.

Woman allegedly shot by a Border Patrol agent speaks out abc15.com/news/state/why…
2) On July 2nd, I visited Nogales to demand from the Mexican Consulate they release the name of the victim and they stop helping Border Patrol cover up their crimes. Image
3) They never contacted me. The fact that @USBPChiefTCA agents can get away with shooting a woman in the head and then expel her to Mexico while she is still recovering, while still having seizures from that shooting without legal, medical or financial help is CRIMINAL.
