Again, these are only children who were separated while in the custody a border patrol. This doesn’t account for other children who have been turned over to other agencies and may not yet have been reunited. That’s an important distinction. twitter.com/davidbegnaud/s…
Sorry, deleted tweet bc it’s not actually clear what this means. CBP has jurisdiction over neither parents who have been prosecuted (who are in ICE custody) nor kids separated for >72 hours (in ORR custody). So it’s not at ALL clear what they just promised
BREAKING: As of Sunday, June 24, US Border Patrol expects that “all unaccompanied children in their custody who were separated from adults who were being prosecuted will have been reunited with their families,” according to a US administration official.
“Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”
Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
Mother of Exiles.
Public Service Announcement: When journalists of color publicly remind white journalists of their unchecked implicit biases, savior complexes, and general fuckery, white onlookers, please refrain from lobbing the word "divisive." That is so 2015.
Perhaps biggest problem of this decision to take baby steps while surveillance technology is running a spirt is that it create perverse incentives for government to collect tons of data and use it later /16
The idea that we have a privacy right to our locations, movements, actions, and interactions - even when they occur in public! - is a revolutionary step forward for the Fourth Amendment. And critically necessary given the many pressing issues we face in this area /9
Okay, having read Carpenter a few times going to put out some main takeaways (just on the Opinion of the Court)
First and most obvious - SCOTUS saying #GetAWarrant for historic cellphone tracking is a huge victory for privacy rights
@TheTinaVasquez I think what people don't understand is that we don't want you to intervene when things get this bad. We want you to intervene way before that when things are just hate speech. This is training people to only react when we are in extreme pain.
Border Patrol agents shut down I-95 southbound in Maine. “If you want to continue down the road, then yes ma’am. We need to know what citizen — what country you’re a citizen of,” an agent said.
This is insane.
For those who don’t know @dancingofpens, she is currently 18. A young black woman. Just got a major book deal. Is going to film school at NYU. Has been writing pieces that got published since she was a young teen.
The only way YouTube can try and beat demonetization is copying what Twitch and Patreon do well. i asked YouTube about it. They skirted the question as only media trained employees can. Refused to acknowledge similarity.
1) Channel memberships is rolling out to creators with 100,000+ subs, along with emotes and badges, as YouTube attempts to take on Twitch. Oh, youll also be able to offer exclusive content to subscrers. So YouTube is also taking on Patreon. twitter.com/Polygon/status…
It's summertime. It'd be interesting to follow up on the Haitian folks that fled to Canada last year, those who stayed at Olympic Parc and how well they integrated, especially since there was some resistance despite Haitians being French speakers.
Trudeau government's line on family separation has evolved over the last 48 hours. On Monday, ministers were reluctant to comment directly. On Tuesday, they acknowledged the news reports were "troubling." Today, the PM says it's wrong.
In other words, if those separated families wanted to reach Canada, they would have to reunite, flee the US, and smuggle themselves into our country. They have no other legal option, having committed the sin of thinking America was safe. 16/21
So asylum seekers have to make perilous journeys across the Can-US border. Instead of going to a border station, they cross in snow-swept fields, in blizzards and floods, or over active railroad tracks. 15/21
It’s a cynical ploy to block migrants from reaching Canada, under the premise that the US is as “safe” a country as Canada for refugees. But there’s a loophole: if you sneak across the Canadian border, your claim can be heard. 14/21
ImmDef is on the front lines of the border separation crisis and we are asking you to stand with us. We provide services to nearly every child detained in Southern California that has been victimized by this cruel border separation policy. We... immdef.org/donate
UPDATE: "123 immigrants seeking asylum have been detained & transferred to Oregon’s Sheridan federal prison in Yamhill County. The majority... are South Asian, who speak primarily Hindi and Punjabi" Need translators. How to help: apano.org/blog/2018/06/1…
And/but would not eliminate the admin stand on “catch and release.” Would deal with the 20-day issue but means families could be held together indefinitely. WH believes this will put Dems on defensive. twitter.com/kthomasdc/stat…
Examples: Families have been denied medical care and proper nutrition. Children have been abused. Children have witnessed the sexual assaults of other detained parents. There are long-term psychological effects of detaining children, even if they are detained with their parents.
An executive order that ends family separation at the border will mean detaining parents alongside their children in family detention centers, which have existed for a long time and are fucking rife with abuse.
These facilities have to be licensed to detain children & because of the Flores Settlement, children shouldn't even be detained longer than around a month. But families remain detained in the unlicensed facility, & many have been subjected to prolonged detention.
Currently there are three family deletion centers in the U.S.: Berks in Pennsylvania and Karnes and Dilley, which are both in Texas. Berks has basically been operating without a license for over a year.
Another example of what I've been talking about. We're consuming these tragedies, and then what? Reporters are parachuting in to cover this atrocity, and then what? Do we need audio of traumatized children crying to know this is wrong and harmful?
I'm not even throwing shade. Why are we covering this story the way we are? Why is the framing relying on the most traumatic details of the migrant childrens' experiences? Who is the audience for this and what is the intended reaction?
And we need to know of these atrocities, but as journalists I want us to think long and hard about the details we're including and why. Is it because it's pertinent? Is the goal to make white people feel empathy? Is it because trauma gets clicks? I'm asking for real.
JUST IN: Reversing course, Massachusetts Gov. Baker directs National Guard not to send any assets or personnel to the Southwest border "because the federal government’s current actions are resulting in the inhumane treatment of children.” - @NBC10Bostonbit.ly/2HZ2Y1T
when I applied for asylum I saw stuck here for years and scared that something would happen to a family member and couldn’t leave the country. There are some circumstances you can travel under but you have to ask for “advance parole” like you are detained here 🌚
Students navigating OPT. H1B workers who couldn’t bring spouses. The hellish logistics of switching status. The fear of switching jobs when you have H1B. Folks who haven’t seen their parents in years. All the weddings+family moments missed at home. It all takes a toll.
My uncle is missing in San Jose. He is autistic and nonverbal, and likely lost and confused. We are very worried. He walked out of the home of his caretakers yesterday morning. Age 61. If you see him, please call San Jose Missing Persons: 408-277-4786 Please RT
You can and should love and learn from and enjoy the things you consume. You should find people you relate to and share experiences with. But you are bigger, deeper, and separate from the things you love. You are good or bad independent of them.
This isn’t unique to nerd culture but the mix of identity-as-consumption and fanatical devotion to consumption (which is what nerd culture really is) creates a toxic mix where consumption is the only way people see themselves as having a place in the world
oh hey I marathoned Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood and it was bananas. I can't remember any other thing I've watched where the last season takes 12 episodes to cover one day and juggles at least 20 characters.
Folks, I’m launching a research project on hate-speech and intercommunal violence—especially in the context of encrypted apps. This is what I’ve been losing sleep over for over a year. Look for a post-doc announcement soon. No easy solutions but there are real steps to take.
The mayor’s plan isn’t anti-Asian, it’s anti-racist. It would give working-class parents - including Asian-Americans who can’t afford and shouldn’t have to find ways to afford expensive test prep programs - a fairer chance at school admissions. nytimes.com/2018/06/13/opi…
thanks to the generous patronage and donations i received as a result of this tweet, i will be able to afford to keep running the cartoonists of color and queer cartoonists database for at least a few more years. thank you to everyone who helped. i love you all.
I see people talking about Chris Pine and but what is the story with this woman's outfit cuz white on white with off-white boots and is that a shopping bag in her right hand or is that's a white fanny pack is it a jacket or jumpsuit with look at the sleeves I have questions okay
If you didn’t like black activists blocking the highway to protest police shootings I have bad news for you about what is truly required to stop a man who is bent on constructing a prison camp for children.
Chechnya's ruthless leader Kadyrov gets upset that Egypt's team shows up at the stadium without @MoSalah, so he goes to the hotel, wakes up Mo from his sleep & shoulder recovery, & drives a bewildered Mo back for a propaganda spectacle. Screw you Kadyrov nytimes.com/2018/06/11/spo…
This is one of the clearest explanations of how targeted ads work via Google, Facebook, and mobile devices. It’s essential reading. Assignment: When you get to the end, imagine how the ethical issues differ for political ads.
Ever wondered *how* those adverts manage to keep on finding you - even when you go incognito, switch devices, or never actually searched for the product in the first place? Let us count the (many, many) ways [THREAD]
