The United States' Continuing Border Crisis: The Real Story Behind the "Invasion" of the Children 25.8.2014 Truthout.com
A group of 22 migrants, mostly women and children from Honduras and Guatemala, in custody just after crossing the Rio Grande near McAllen, Texas, June 18, 2014. (Photo: Jennifer Whitney / The New York Times) Call it irony or call it a nightmare, but the "crisis" of Central American children crossing the US-Mexican border, which lasted for months amid angry debate, is now fading from the news. The media stories have been legion, the words expended many. And yet, as the "crisis" leaves town, as the sound and fury die down and attention shifts elsewhere, the real factors that would have made sense of what's been happening remain ...

Ebola has infected public discourse with a new xenophobia 4.8.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
My midwives refused to see me after my trip to Nigeria, which didnt surprise me, given the reckless reporting of the Ebola outbreak Like Sars and swine flu before it, Ebola has gripped the national imagination. I was made all too aware of this last week on my return to London from a holiday in Nigeria. Im now two thirds of the way through my second pregnancy, and was due to have a routine midwifes appointment the day after my flight landed at Heathrow. The only problem was that my midwives refused to see me. They took this precaution as a result of two factors my poorly toddler, who had a slight temperature, and heavy news coverage of the Ebola outbreak in west Africa. They referred me instead to my GP. Their wisdom was debatable. I was travelling from Nigeria, a country in which so far only two people have been quarantined as a result of possible contact with the disease . And in any case, a GPs waiting room is not the best place to take a potentially deadly virus. Thank goodness Im not ...

Poll: Immigration concerns rise with the tide of children 30.7.2014 Salt Lake Tribune
McAllen, Texas • For nearly two months, images of immigrant children who have crossed the border without a parent, only to wind up in concrete holding cells once in the United States, have tugged at heartstrings.

A new Associated Press-GfK poll finds two-thirds of Americans now say illegal immigration is a serious problem for the country, up 14 points since May and on par with ...

La Bestia: the hit song the US border agency made to scare off immigrants 16.7.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
It's a big hit in Central America with its lyrics about la bestia , or the 'train of death', that migrants ride up to the US border. But few listeners know that it is all part of a multi-million dollar propaganda campaign to dissuade them It might just be the most tuneful piece of propaganda since The Simpsons' "Drop Da Bomb" . La Bestia , "the beast", mimics the traditional Mexican narrative ballads called "corridos". With catchy Caribbean-style instrumentation, it tells the story of "the Beast from the South, this wretched train of death", a notoriously dangerous freight train on which migrants hitch a lift to the United States. It is currently being played on 21 radio stations in Central America. But what listeners are not being told is that the song was devised by a US advertising agency, for US Customs and Border Protection, as part of a multi-million dollar anti-immigration campaign to halt the influx of migrants from Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador. Migra corridos migra is a derogatory term ...

Illegals and gangsters and Ebola, oh my! 5 conservative immigration myths of the moment, made sane 16.7.2014 Guardian: Comment is Free
As lawmakers seek a solution to the border crisis, the hysterics have reached a new level. We separate punditry from reality Just when you thought Washington was out to do something, the yellers pull you back in. Bipartisan legislation from Texas lawmakers is set to be introduced any moment now, in an effort ( albeit a broad one ) to answer President Obama's call for "an urgent humanitarian situation" to the migrant crisis on the US border with Central America, and Republicans are reportedly interested in providing half of the emergency funding he has requested . Yet this seems like the moment when so many immigration conspiracies pumped for weeks by conservative websites, talk-radio hosts and Fox News are just now ratcheting up. Somewhere (hint: national television), Dick Cheney is talking about "integrity" on the border . Illegal immigrant children are being quietly dumped in states without the states knowledge or consent. ... Texas and Arizona have Republican Governors and are red states, and ...
