Twitter Web App : To be clear, the US citizens being convicted are working for cartels -- so they're not unrelated, quite the opposite. The important point here is that Americans are also deeply involved in smuggling people into the US, which, as we've written, appears to be on the rise.

Twitter Web App : "The smugglers who have been caught include down-on-their-luck truck drivers, single mothers, oil-field workers and high school students" twitter.com/JonathanBlitze…

iPhone : A senior DHS official has informed me that Kevin McAleenan is still acting secretary of Homeland Security as of 7:05 pm on Oct 31st (his last day, according to his resignation letter).

Twitter Web App : NEW! A DACA student mobilizes against his mom’s deportation. “I grew up in this country. My mother is the single biggest reason I am at a school like Yale,” he said of the campaign he started to win his mother’s freedom. nytimes.com/2019/10/31/us/… via @NYTimes

Twitter Web App : Senate Democrats call on Trump administration to abandon plan to collect DNA from migrants hill.cm/AeYord5
