#CBP struggles to find new employees


Border Patrol's struggles to recruit and keep agents present a seldom-discussed impediment to Drumpf’s efforts to lock down the U.S.-Mexico border — one that the Drumpf White House is reluctant to acknowledge.

Shortly after taking office, the president signed an executive order that called for the hiring of 5,000 agents. More recently, his administration pushed a proposal that calls for 2,750 more agents, law enforcement officers and staff. But Border Patrol can’t hire enough people to fill jobs that were available before. Even as Congress provides funding to hire 21,370 agents, the patrol is more than 1,800 agents short of that mark.

Many minor refugees suffer from severe illnesses


Between Dec. 22 and Sunday, the agency reported 451 cases referred to doctors or other providers, including 259 children. Among the children, half of the cases involved kids under the age of 5.

The Border Patrol has been receiving assistance from the Coast Guard, which has sent medical teams to the border in the Yuma and Tucson, Arizona, and Rio Grande Valley sectors of the border. The Public Health Service also said it will deploy teams to help.

On the border patrol custody facilities


She added: "They are designed and meant for punishment and deterrence, and this is nothing unique about this administration. These [Customs and Border Protection] facilities have been nasty and ugly since I started this work."

Now, we still have to reflect the fact that these facilities have been built even before Obama has become president, am I right? We're not talking about the ICE, but about the border patrol. What can we say about this, nonetheless? That no sitting president cared about the conditions in which people have been taken custody. Neither Mr. Obama, nor Donnie, nor anyone before these two. It's terrifying.

"We've seen this coming," she said. "When you take a child and you put them into a facility that's cold, and they don't get proper sleep because the lights are on, and they have risk of infection from open toilets, it's a really bad combination of things that could really result in some very sick children."

Throwback: Trumpist border patrol agents commit sabotage to refugees' water lets


Volunteers found water gallons vandalised 415 times, on average twice a week, in an 800 sq mile patch of Sonoran desert south-west of Tucson, from March 2012 to December 2015, the report said. The damage affected 3,586 gallons.

The report, published by No More Deaths and La Coalición de Derechos Humanos, said wildlife – as well as hunters, hikers and border militia members – also damaged aid drops. But it said the main culprits were agents from border patrol, a branch of Customs and Border Protection, which is part of the Department of Homeland Security.

If wildlife damaged the water lets to drink it themselves, I would be less upset than about border patrol agents, who poured the water away so that no-one, let alone the help-seeking refugees, drank it.

#DHS promises changes in child custody to protect migrant children


"It is now clear that migrants, particularly children, are increasingly facing medical challenges and harboring illness caused by their long and dangerous journey," #Nielsen said.

You don't say?

The Homeland Security Secretary said she had tapped the Department of Defense to boost medical staffs along the border as well as the U.S. Coast Guard Medical Corps to assess #CBP's medical programs and make recommendations for improvements.

I hope it will work out as expected.

"The fact that they're trying to get an accurate headcount now is very concerning," Correa told NPR. "You would think that someone comes into custody and that is when the head count is done."

Family of 7-year old who died in custody contradict border patrol statement


Border Patrol officials on Friday said agents did everything they could to save the girl but that she had not had food or water for days. They added that an initial screening showed no evidence of health problems, and that her father had signed a form indicating she was in good health.
[...]
A cause of death has not yet been released. A private prayer service was held in Texas on Friday so her father could see #Jakelin’s body before it is taken to Guatemala, said Ruben Garcia, director of the Annunciation House shelter where her father is staying.

This is strange...

Talking about a decent use of border patrol units


The request suggests that personnel with such assignments as guarding diplomats, patrolling national parks, and protecting nuclear weapons might effectively “become Customs and Border Protection personnel,” as one former Justice Department official put it, with the power to arrest border-crossers.

When the craze is greater than the actual problem. In Germany, we shortly discussed sending border patrols at the eastern Bavarian border to register refugees from the beginning, it didn't happen exactly. Instead, the federal government of Bavaria established so-called "anchor centres", which is similar to what the ICE established in prisons and supermarkets, or Denmark intends to create on the isle of Lindholm. Now, the ICE stocks up with civil policemen? God, I hate nationalists and fascists.

#California likely to consider legal actions against tear gas use


“We have been approached by folks who have expressed complaints,” California Attorney General Xavier Becerra said in an interview with Reuters on Wednesday. “We are monitoring what’s occurring.”
Reuters notes, however, that California has limited jurisdiction, because the federal government has large authority over border and immigration policies.
But Becerra told the news outlet that California could have the authority to take legal action if a state resident was impacted by the Border Patrol agents' use of force this past weekend.

So, Mr. Becerra would like to take legal actions against the tear gas use by border patrol agents, but he can't because their is no legal foundation that spoke against it? Thus, he has to wait until the federal government creates this foundation, so that he will be able to file a complaint about it? Damn, that's restrictive,... Show more...
 

#Migrants not going to be charged after clashes with border patrol agents


The only two individuals Customs and Border Protection referred for prosecution ended up not being charged because they had medical problems and could not be held at the San Diego detention center, according to reports.
Others were not charged because they came in family units with children. Still others escaped prosecution because in the chaos surrounding Sunday’s incident, authorities missed pieces of information necessary to file charges, such as the names of the officers who made arrests.

They were better off not charging them. I mean, you cannot use tear gas against them after blocking them from asking for asylum, and then expect them to not defend themselves. It's a typical all-American behaviour: Shoot someone, then interrogate him, and freak out when one's victim starts to hit one back. As if this was not all-natural.

#Trump about the incidents at the #border passing


“We’ve had some very violent people and frankly we don’t want those people in our society,” Drumpf said, according to a pool report. “We don’t want those people in our country. We have tremendous violence.”

Yes, your sympathisers create abundant violence against their political opponents, you should do something against it before it escalates even further. As for those migrants, what did you expect? You create a wave of hatred against them, and tells border patrols to use tear gas against them, although it might be "as natural as can be." Still, did you ever have tear gas in your eyes? We know that you like to be peed upon, but that's a different story. But tear gas burns like hell, of course those migrants are angry then and try to defend themselves. To turn the whole story around in retrospective is a falsifyin... Show more...

When shooting at #refugees becomes reality


“As Secretary #Nielsen has said, we will not allow our frontline personnel to be in harm’s way," #DHS spokesperson Kate Waldman told ABC News. "We will do everything we can to protect those who defend our nation’s sovereignty and secure our border. We appreciate the Department of Defense stepping in to assist the Department of Homeland Security as needed.”

I am not sure if this is really going to end well. I mean, we're talking about unarmed people on the one side, who at worst throw with stones, while on the other side, we have got heavily armed men with guns in their hands, triggering live ammunition. There is a slight difference between both sides...

I've been making a list of some alternatives to YouTube for the privacy conscious:
  • Dailymotion.com - legit. organized by topic.
  • Metacafe.com - like above, but more in a Buzzfeed style. kinda clickbaity.
  • Vimeo.com - high prod. values, mostly art films etc.
  • Vevo.com - Music videos
  • ?
If you know of any other good ones, please let me know!

I'm pretty familiar with the last two, but the first were new to me. It's a good start but nowhere near, of course, to the huge glut of content on YT.
Of course you're probably already aware of YouTube's mandatory tracking. I've tried using a TOR browser but YT videos flat out don't work in it.

I've tried using Firefox's Private Windows, but I obviously get tracked, at least per session. I don't trust it's enough. I know the above alternatives aren't perfect, defintely must do their own tracking, but they're (as far as I can tell) significantly removed from the Tech Titans hegemony. For now I've at least pulled out of the worst of them -... Show more...
 
Trump is a moron, of course, but having The National Guard down here on Border Patrol could have positive consequences. The Border Patrol is astonishingly corrupt, for starters. Adding a bunch of Bumpkin Weekend Warrior dipshits probably won't help much. And the whole Border Issue is hypocrisy and corruption top to bottom. People in the rest of the country don't know what is going on. What the hypocrites want is effectively slavery. They want to be able to import foreign workers, have them work in America, but have them be subject to no law whatsoever. They won't be Mexican citizens working in the US. They won't be Americans. They won't have any legal status at all. They are ghost people. And these hypocrites are largely happy with the current situation. They smuggle people in (often under the knowing gaze of the so-called "Border Patrol"), move them into living situations that are dormitory or barracks like. And they work them relentlessly. It's not just agricultural work. It's all sorts of illegal gray-market work. Anything you can imagine, really. No Unions. No Legal Prot... Show more...
