Non-christian Christian organisations Betsy DeVos is related to


Source I: Snopes: https://www.snopes.com/news/2018/06/26/bethany-christian-services-family-separation-betsy-devos/

Bethany Christian Services, an adoption center with financial ties to [Education Secretary] Betsy DeVos, has taken 81 immigrant children who were forcibly separated from their parents at the border. Most have had no contact with their families. They’re charging $700 per child per night. This isn’t foster care, this is state-sponsored kidnapping.

The links between the extended DeVos family and Bethany are undeniable. Tax filings archived by ProPublica show that between 2001 and 2015, the Dick and Betsy DeVos Foundation (the philanthropic organization run by DeVos and her husband) gave $343,000 in grants to Bethany Christian Services.

Furthermore, Betsy DeVos is not an owner of Bethany Christian Services, and therefore ... Show more...
 

Underdog likely to win in El Salvador's elections appointed on Sunday


The ruling Farabundo Marti National Liberation Front (FMLN), needs a massive upset if the leftist party is to cling to power. Its traditional rival, the conservative Nationalist Republican Alliance (ARENA), also lags well behind Bukele, who belongs to a smaller right-wing party called the Great Alliance for National Unity (GANA).

To win outright, he must secure more than 50 percent of the vote or face a run-off against his closest rival on March 10. About 5.3 million Salvadorans are registered to vote.

Miles de migrantes llegan a Ciudad de México


La secretaria de Gobierno de la capital mexicana, Rosa Icela Rodríguez, dijo que los migrantes originarios de Honduras, El Salvador y Guatemala son atendidos en el albergue temporal en la Ciudad Deportiva en el este de la urbe.

Los miles de migrantes entraron a México por su frontera con Guatemala a partir del 18 de enero, en el marco de una nueva caravana que salió días atrás de Honduras con la intención de llegar a Estados Unidos.

Miles de participantes de esa caravana regresaron a sus países de origen o se iternaron de manera irregular en Estados Unidos y fueron detenidos por sus autoridades, de acuerdo con el gobierno mexicano.

Memo reveals Republican conspiratorial plot to build Southern border


The memo, dated December 2017, details deliberate plans to implement a family separation policy as a deterrent to would-be asylum seekers and lays out strategies to increase detention of migrant children. Despite many statements by the President and senior political appointees to the contrary, this document proves that the administration was in fact intentionally and deliberately planning all along to separate families and create a crisis on the southern U.S. border.

Now, if this memo is no fake to contrarily and deliberately badmouthing the Republican party andTrump administration (as if this was still possible on them), I'm not surprised though. Of course this had to be planned long before, how would you expect to manage everything of this spontaneously, huh? I mean, you had to find centres to detain the children and the parents separately, and you had to employ enough military personnel to guard them. Why report about this, anyway?

Second migrant caravan underway to US-Mexican border


Television footage on Monday showed several hundred people in the violent city of San Pedro Sula huddled together and waving Honduran flags as they began a journey that will likely take weeks or even months to reach the U.S.-Mexico border.

Perhaps, they didn't choose the best date to commence their voyage towards the USA. I mean, just today, the Pentagon approved a prolonging of US military to enforce the border, and the situation is already heightened up to the boiling point thanks to the never-ending government shutdown.

“It’s a difficult road ahead but I hope President Drumpf’s heart might soften, and that he won’t be so hard and will let us enter,” he added.

#AP fact-checked #Trump's adress to the nation during government shutdown


Despite their portrayal of Mexico as a teeming portal for terrorists, the State Department issued a report in September finding "no credible evidence indicating that international terrorist groups have established bases in Mexico, worked with Mexican drug cartels or sent operatives via Mexico into the United States."

#Trump reportedly intends to declare national emergency to fund his border wall


"We can only stay like this for so long," said the official, who attended both meetings with congressional officials at the White House led by Drumpf this week, explaining that factual disputes have hung up discussions.

"I haven't done it. I may do it," Drumpf said. "We can call a national emergency and build it very quickly."

Because building a wall alongside one of the world's longest borders between to neighbouring countries always works very quickly. Seriously, you can't do this. It is a costly project that is never going to pay out again. Your household will suffer from a giant hole in the budget. Where do you plan to save money instead, to not run into a national economical crisis? This money has to come in from somewhere, and you didn't start raising money anywhere. You can't take it out of nowhere.

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.

Congressmen of New #Mexico upset about girl's death and facility conditions


Castro said it was "because it’s such a rare occurrence that makes it arguably the most significant thing that could have been discussed that morning.”
In addition, Castro and the other congressional members criticized the condition of the facilities they toured, saying they jeopardized the health of immigrants and CBP agents and officers working there.
Rep. Raul Ruiz, D-Calif., an emergency care physician, said the visit and conversations with supervisors “revealed” that Jacklin suffered seizures before she eventually became unresponsive.

Pretty late you are, the girl's decease has happened a few days ago. Also, I really hope you're serious about it, because to be honest, I wonder how you can stand the existence of the #ICE in such times, or the methods they use to (mis)treat the migr... Show more...
 

Congress not permitted to speak with agents on 7-year old girl's death


"While DHS respects the oversight role of Congress, it is important to allow the review process occur unimpeded by politics," spokeswoman Katie Waldman said in a statement. "It is important to preserve the legitimacy of a fair and impartial process out of respect to the agents' lifesaving mission and the family of the deceased."

Somehow, I still feel like this was just a good reason to infere a worthwhile investigation on her death, and a good means to veil the real encounter that led to her death. She still died on the American side of the border, from starvation and a shock, which sounds like her death was intentional, and not just subsequent to her poor conditions.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., the top-ranking Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, sent a letter to CBP Commissioner Kevin McAleenan demanding a more detailed timeline and accounting of what happened to Maquin during her time in custody.

Exactly.

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

On Chaffetz's comment on the girl that has died in custody, from starvation


What to say when a girl of seven years, migrant from Honduras to the country of eternal freedom and safety, the United States of Fuckery, has died in custody, executed by the ICE, on American soil, died from starvation and dehydration? Well, she shouldn't have made this journey altogether, then she would have died in her country, so that it would not become a problem of ours.

If you ever wonder why people turn anti-American, look what kind of people are permitted to occupy an office, become Representatives of their state, or even presidents in their country. The country that was founded on genocide, committed genocides across the world, and insists to repeat the same at its very own border. The country that now embraces its patriotism and is allied by European leftists. The hypocrisy is real.

“The sad reality is we have a 7-year-old girl who has died, and she should have never, ever made that journey,” #Chaffetz said. “And that should be the message, don't make this journey, it will kill you, and that should be the message.”

You know what? Send this man behind the American border, and never let him in again legally, so that he will be forced to go through the same torture as those migrants do. Withdraw all his money, all food and all beverages. Treat him like a normal Honduran or Guatemaltecan migrant, including the tear gas procedure and a custody as this little girl experienced. When we're lucky, he will die from starvation or dehydration as well.

Guatemaltecan migrant girl died in custody, due to starvation and shock


The AP news agency quotes border officials as saying she had not had food or water for several days.

So, we can tell that this girl was held in custody because her family, or at least her mother tried to receive asylum in the US. Then, the child was not fed for several days? Are you fucking kidding me? Seriously? The US have become a terrorist state, let's just say it as it is. They prevent themselves from their social responsibility, for situations they could have fought against. But they didn't. The US were founded by immigrants, and now, they want to hold the same out of sight and out of mind. Impeach this fucking rogue administration, for God's sake!

Paddy Reilly - Deportees (Written by Woody Guthrie)


Although I prefer the version sung by the Wolfe Tones and the one sung by Pete Seeger, I also wanted to highlight how beautiful and sorrowful Paddy Reilly has sung this song about Mexican/Latin-American labourers who were deported after executing their seasonal work, when their plane crashed above Los Gatos Canyon. It's the same fate all the migrants face when the ICE took over them, poisoned them with tear gas or downright deported them, to go back to Honduras, or wherever they came from. This is ekpathic, it's outright misanthropic, and a purely egoist policy that was launched by the Trump administration. A decision filled up with nothing but hate, isolationism, cowardry, and lies. This is nothing about America First, it's only about the White Man's imaginary paramount, and about the yellow action of not caring because Donnie doesn't have the balls to accomplish an issue that was made to be taken by a president. That's why he is nothing but a clown. Only clowns tweet like him, but not an honourable man who was voted by... Show more...
 

On the meeting between Chuck #Schumer, Nancy #Pelosi, Donnie, and Mike #Pence


Drumpf interacted with Schumer and Pelosi — and yes, I am playing political psychiatrist here — more like peers who he wants to have like him for the great guy he thinks he is. Maybe because he sees Pelosi and Schumer as big celebrities.

This would be surprising to me, since he has never got a good word about either one. To think that he sees them as celebrities, and not as his nemeses would be progress. Or maybe, he's just afraid of them because it depends on them and their parties to get the border wall funding in total, and not only the 1.6 bn dollars they offered him.

Coello dejó su país debido a la violencia de las pandillas. Trabajaba como taxista cuando miembros de la MS-13 lo ubicaron y comenzaron a extorsionarlo exigiéndole pagos cada vez más grandes, hasta el punto de matar a uno de sus colegas. “El gobierno ya no hace nada. Tan pronto como pones una denuncia en la policía te matan las mismas pandillas… Si dices que no hay comida los mismos policías te matan,” dijo.

US-MEX border situation calls different faith leaders to set a sign of empathy and decency

#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...
 

How right-wingers view the criticism on #Trump's use of tear gas


The White House is under fire from critics for allowing the gas to be used against hundreds of South American migrants who tried to illegally force their way into the country.

No, they didn't try to enter the country illegally because demanding asylum is not illegal. Read the Constitution, and inform yourself on international law.

“I think it’s strange to say that you don’t care that it was happening before,” Ms. McCain responded. “If you’re infuriated now then you should have been infuriated then. … I come on here a lot and concede when Republicans are making mistakes. … It would be nice, once in awhile, if my friends on the left conceded that they were wrong.”

#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.

Mesa said her 3-year-old son James, who does not appear in the picture, was also with them and fainted after getting a lung-full of gas.
"One of them could have died," she said.
Kim said Mesa "was travelling with five children."

It couldn't have been worse. I mean, when I know that there are children in the masses of migrants and protesters, I think twice about using tear gas to send them away from the border fence. I mean, children are drastically vulnerable, and rely on their parents. Thus, when sent to the border, they didn't necessarily do that on their own, but followed their parents. Punishing them for that is irresponsible and should be brought to court.

"You're going to see a lot of families here, a lot of women and children, but the truth is the majority of the people that are part of this caravan … the majority of them are men, so when this becomes a polarized, political issue in the United States, you have people on one side that point and say, ‘There are women and children here,' and that is true, and then there are others who point and say, ‘These are men that are trying to cross the border,' and that's true, too," Schwartz said.

“There is no agreement of any sort between the incoming Mexican government and the U.S. government,” future Interior Minister Olga Sanchez told Reuters on Saturday, contradicting Drumpf and an earlier Washington Post report that said a deal ― albeit an informal one ― had been struck between the two governments.
