Objections by #Nielsen and Others to #Trump Plan for Mass Arrests Were 'Logistical and Technical,' Report Shows, Not Moral or Ethical
 
 

Third migrant child dies in US custody

He was detained on April 19 by agents at the southern border, Guatemala’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs said. One day later, he was sent to a government-contracted youth shelter in Brownsville, Texas, to begin a process of family reunification, according to the ministry.

The following morning, employees noticed that the teen was sick with “fever, chills and a headache,” Stauffer said. They took him to a nearby hospital where he received treatment. He then returned to the shelter.

Describing the boy’s medical condition, the Guatemalan Ministry of Foreign Affairs said the boy had “a severe infection in the frontal lobe that showed no improvement, even after a surgical intervention to stabilize the pressure inside the head area.”

[LIVE UPDATE] Trump signed veto against Congress' obstruction of national emergency declaration


Thank you @POTUS for standing up for America, supporting @DHSgov and declaring this humanitarian & security crisis exactly what it is – a national emergency. It was a pleasure to see our great partners in state & local law enforcement & the Angel parents in the Oval Office today!
~ Kirstjen Nielsen

According to CBP, the agency used fiscal year 2017 funds to construct "approximately 38 of 40 miles of wall in place of outdated designs in San Diego and El Centro, California, Santa Teresa, New Mexico and El Paso, Texas."

"The House and Senate resoundingly rejected the President’s lawless power grab, yet the President has chosen to continue to defy the Constitution, the Congress and the will of the American people," Pelosi said in a statement.

Apprehensions at US-MEX border not going to exceed one million


Through the first five months of fiscal year 2019, U.S. Customs and Border Protection reports there have been 268,044 apprehensions – a monthly average of 53,609, which would put the U.S. on track for 643,306 this fiscal year.

As for the 2019 calendar year, there have been 114,436 apprehensions in the first two months of this year. That’s an average of 57,218 per month, or 686,616 a year.

Way to go to exceed one million. Trump has a lot of work to do in diminishing safety and wealth in the states southwards, a lot of military interventions are required to accomplish this challenge.

When Nielsen said “this year,” she was referring to calendar year 2019, not the fiscal year, a department spokesperson told us. The secretary gets to “close to 1 million” based on “the rough estimate of 2,700 people encountered per day in February,” the spokesperson said.

DHS Sec. Kirstjen Nielsen defends Trump's separation policy


"This is not a manufactured crisis," Nielsen told the House Homeland Security Committee. "This is truly an emergency."

A misspelling: There's an emergency along the border, but not the emergency Trump made up, that caused this inhumane policy of spearating children from their parents, causing a lifelong trauma.

"No amount of verbal gymnastics will change that she knew the Drumpf administration was implementing a policy to separate families at the border," Democratic Rep. Bernie Thompson said.

"It should be very clear from these numbers that we are facing alarming trends in the rising volumes of people illegally crossing our southwest border or arriving at our ports of entry without documents," CBP Commissioner Kevin McAleenan said Tuesday.

Previously unknown - #Trump separated more families before it emerged in the press


"OIG found more children over a longer period of time were separated by immigration authorities and referred to HHS for care than is commonly discussed in public debate. How many more children were separated is unknown by us and HHS," Ann Maxwell, assistant inspector general for evaluations at the Office of Inspector General at the Department of Health and Human Services, told reporters.

A federal lawsuit resulted in the government identifying a class of 2,737 children who had been separated from their families between May and June 2018. "However, this number does not represent the full scope of family separations," according to the OIG statement.

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?

#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.

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."

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


AFSC brought faith leaders from different religious denominations together for a press conference at the Border Field State Park in San Diego on Monday to call on the U.S. to respect people’s human right to migrate, end the militarization of border communities and end the detention and deportation of immigrants.
“We keep being told that we need to make a choice between violence and decency. That we have to make a choice between upholding dignity or upholding the power structures that continue to oppress people here and all around the world while touting this title of ‘the freest nation in the world,’” said Imam Omar Suleiman at the press conference.

Although one must say that the situation at this border is precarious since faith leaders and advocates of different faiths felt urged to gather there to show that humanity is fucked when they shoot tear gas to prevent people from saving themselves, it is also a beautiful picture... Show more...

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.

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...
