College, Complex, and Doctor: Garet Bleir @GaretBleir 1/8 Yesterday, Francisco Galicia, a high school senior born in Dallas, TX called his mother for the first time after being released from nearly a month of illegal detainment in U.S. Concentration camps at the hands of CBP and ICE. He was held in "inhumane" conditions, he told me.

At the checkpoint, he showed Border Patrol agents proof of his birth in the U... 1 Garet Bleir @GaretBleir 21h 3/8 he had on him - his Texas State ID, his wallet-sized birth certificate, and his social security card, but the agents told him they believed the documents weren't real, his attorney told me. For the entire three weeks he was held captive in CBP custody, Francisco was not... 1 Garet Bleir @GaretBleir 21h 4/8 allowed to use the phone, even for calls to his attorney or to his mother who feared he would be deported. It wasn't until Saturday, after being transferred to ICE custody, that he was allowed to make a collect phone call. 3 1 Garet Bleir @GaretBleir 21h 5/8 Despite multiple attempts by family members and his attorney to give further proof of his U.S. citizenship, it wasn't until the attorney took this to the news media and grassroots activists throughout Texas that ICE finally released Francisco, she says. 1 t 1 4 Garet Bleir @GaretBleir 21h 6/8 The attorney was told that she would have to present the documents to ICE officials upon arrival at South Texas Detention Complex in Pearsall, TX but after a handful of activists and reporters arrived at the detention facility... 9 1 3 Garet Bleir @GaretBleir 21h 7/8. we watched as ICE officials released Francisco without even speaking to the attorney. This further shows that the officials not only had the proper documentation for his release, they also knew that they had the proper documentation and that he was a U.S. citizen. 1 t 2 5 Garet Bleir @GaretBleir 21h 8/8 I'll be sharing more updates soon, along with videos and photos showing what happened while we were there as soon as possible. Photo: Garet Bleir - Journalism arctic-hands: swan2swan: swan2swan: If you haven’t seen this story, look up his name: Francisco Galicia.  Expect to see him come 2020, when the debates begin and the political battle heats up. Expect to see him in a suit testifying in court, or before Congress. This young man is a witness and a victim, and the fact that this isn’t a more prominent story on every news station is what truly frightens me. From The Dallas News: Galicia says he lost 26 pounds during that time in a South Texas immigrant detention center because officers didn’t provide him with enough food. He said he wasn’t allowed to shower and his skin was dry and dirty. He and 60 other men were crammed into an overcrowded holding area where they slept on the floor and were given only aluminum-foil blankets, he said. Some men had to sleep on the restroom area floor. Ticks bit some of the men and some were very sick, Galicia said. But many were afraid to ask to go to the doctor because CBP officers told them their stay would start over if they did, he said. I would remind you that concentration camps are actually real.  “I told them we had rights and asked to make a phone call. But they told us, ‘You don’t have rights to anything’,” Francisco Galicia said. This is happening. [the screencapped tweets are in initial link]

America, Bad, and Children: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Following @AOC This just broke: a secret Facebook group of 9,500 CBP officers discussed making a GoFundMe for officers to harm myself & Rep. Escobar during our visit to CBP facilities & mocked migrant deaths This isn't about "a few bad eggs." This is a violent culture. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez 9,500 CBP officers sharing memes about dead migrants and discussing violence and sexual misconduct towards members of Congress. @AOC 5h How on earth can CBP's culture be trusted to care for refugees humanely? PS I have no plans to change my itinerary & will visit the CBP station today. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez' There are 20,000 TOTAL Customs & Border Patrol agents in the US @AOC 5h 9,500 almost HALF that number - are in a racist & sexually violent secret CBP Facebook group. They're threatening violence on members of Congress. How do you think they're treating caged children+families? @AOC 3h Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez . Just left the 1st CBP facility. I see why CBP officers were being so physically &sexually threatening towards me. Officers were keeping women in cells w/ no water & had told them to drink out of the toilets. This was them on their GOOD behavior in front of members of Congress. theglowpt2: almost HALF of all the border patrol agency members in america are part of a secret facebook group where they share memes mocking dead immigrants

Ain’t nobody gonna believe them America is operating concentration camps.  There’s no getting around it.  Here’s what those places are actually like: https://www.cnn.com/2019/06/06/politics/ice-detention-center-ig-report/index.html https://www.cnn.com/2019/06/05/politics/hhs-activities-unaccompanied-children/index.html https://www.cnn.com/2019/05/14/politics/border-patrol-mcallen-texas-pictures/index.html https://www.cnn.com/2018/12/31/us/arizona-migrant-child-abuse-allegations-shelter/index.html Why isn’t America being investigated by the UN for war crimes?  Because America’s military force is larger than the next five biggest powers on the planet. Every country is terrified of us. The people of almost every country consider us the biggest threat to their freedom and they’re right.
