It took months of late night phone calls, meetings and travel to confirm that family separations were taking place. We did it because the truth matters.

The third migrant since December has died in CBP custody -- someone suffering from longstanding health issues -- but whose death is sure to intensify scrutiny of the agency's health and safety standards

Quoted @amy_harmon

Please read my story about the African-American mathematician @edraygoins -- and about what another black mathematician described to me as "the racism of educated people.'' By which he really meant, educated white people. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/02/18/us/edray-goins-black-mathematicians.html …

Excellent piece by @amy_harmon. I can't imagine @edraygoins’s honest writing would discourage young black math students. The *expectation* is that they will be questioned, excluded. His essay will counteract the inevitable gaslighting and help them know that they are not alone.

On today’s Reliable Sources: @mariaressa, @juliaioffe, @Susan_Hennessey, @feministabulous, @wjcarter, @pbump, @itscaitlinhd, @donie and @BBergquam with @brianstelter. 11am CNN.

Trump himself employed undocumented immigrants at his golf courses. So, too, it seems, did his nominee for UN Ambassador.

#OnThisDay 1978: The British public were not impressed at the prospect of switching from miles to kilometres.

In a rough week for his immigration agenda, the president appears to have "won out" against some members of the caravans. They're giving up on entering the US because of long wait times and bad conditions. W/ @jdelreal @mirjordan and @ek_the_pj

President Trump is facing criticism following his national emergency declaration, at the U.S. border with Mexico. @itscaitlinhd, Immigration reporter for "The New York Times", joins us to discuss the controversy.

Sleep; who needs it!

As we are now in a state of national emergency, matcha will no longer be strong enough to support my day and I am switching to coffee. Thank you for your support.

Breaking: @splcenter & @ACLU just filed a lawsuit challenging "the federal government’s new policy of forcing asylum seekers to return to danger in Mexico while they await their removal proceedings" violating of the humanitarian protections entitled under US & international law.

Here we go: McConnell Says Trump Plans to Declare National Emergency to Build Border Wall

OK, so what are we calling this?

Something you might have missed: While focus has been on “the wall,” asylum and family separation, detention in the interior crept up to its highest level yet

So many heartbreaking details in this story about how Parkland is doing. One survivor who took 5 bullets used to want to play pro soccer. “Now I don’t do anything,” he said. 🙏🏾 @PatriciaMazzei⁩ and @Eve_Edelheit

2/Immigration authorities have historically bowed to extreme public pressure in specific cases & that may have played a role here. But especially in Georgia, a typical person in his situation probably would have sat in detention until their court date in 2020-something.

.@21savage is out so, more inaccurate coverage. What's real: Few immigrants are being granted bond under Trump - part of why the detained population is higher than ever. 21s *release* makes him an exception, not the fact that he was held for "so long"

highlight of the day: listening to @kimmurphy give a master's class on record requests to a stringer on the phone: "Just act like you know what you're doing."

my editor, ladies and gentlemen. take notes.

Quoted @itscaitlinhd

1/To all those who are distressed about the ICE arrest of @21savage: Hello. Welcome. Thank you for joining us.

Some thoughts ahead of the rally today for @21savage

For generations, residents of the southwest border town of Calexico have watched with trepidation as a threat flows unabated into the United States from Mexico. No, it's not undocumented immigrants they're worried about. My latest piece:

Today, The @Tennessean published one of the strangest stories of my career. Actually, the article itself isn't that weird, but the story behind the story is bonkers. This is a thread. Here we go. 1/

This is great -- read it! Includes this line about being in a new job and being scared at feeling out of his element: "I decide to work twice as hard so no one will notice."

NEW: @realdonaldtrump’s Bedminster golf course employed so many undocumented immigrants that there’s an entire town in Costa Rica built on Trump paychecks. We found it. “My whole town practically lived there,” one said of the Trump course.
