Under Trump, immigration enforcement dominates the Homeland Security Department's mission. https://www.washingtonpost.com/immigration/under-trump-immigration-enforcement-dominates-homeland-security-mission/2019/04/17/10982346-5f8f-11e9-9ff2-abc984dc9eec_story.html?utm_term=.e582f9686958 … New by @NickMiroff, me, and @jdawsey1
There are obvious risks for DHS in this symbolic shift. Protecting the country from terrorist attacks is rah-rah-USA bipartisan stuff. Separating families and threatening to bus migrants to sanctuary cities is not, and leaves agency looking like a WH tool
DHS is finally moving into brand-new headquarters overlooking Washington, a place meant to symbolize its role as the nation's stable guardian. But the department is roiled and reeling from a WH purge, leaving staffers joking darkly about the site's former use as a mental hospital
Trump has fixated on immigration part of DHS while largely ignoring other areas. He calls cybersecurity "the cyber" and has joked to aides the world would be better off without computers. How Trump is shaping a major agency, w/@NickMiroff & @shaneharris:
Bolton today, announcing severe new Cuba sanctions: “Today, we proudly proclaim for all to hear: the Monroe Doctrine is alive and well.” ➡️ Across much of Latin America, “Monroe Doctrine” is imperial shorthand for “Latin America is ours— back off”
The McAleenan era at DHS begins with a tour of the border, including a midnight shift, and the label “humanitarian emergency"
This frame—focused on tactical specifics and capacity concerns, and including a tour of the charity run by Trump critic/DHS partner Sister Norma Pimentel—is entirely what you’d expect from McAleenan’s tenure at CBP.
#INFORMACION: Una vez mas autoridades del municipio de #Huixtla, #Chiapas impiden la entrada al centro de la ciudad a las personas migrantes que transitan en forma de caravana. @CNDH @CIDH @CEDHChiapas @M_OlgaSCordero @DIF_NMX @UNICEFMexico @ONUDHmexico @A_Encinas_R
We reported a couple weeks ago for @washingtonpost about the growing backlash to caravans in Mexico. Now the town of Huixtla, in Chiapas, has again blocked the entrance of the latest caravan. What will that mean for the thousands who are traveling, as they reach other towns?
