I’ll be available late morning and late afternoon. (How to contact me)
First thing this morning I’ll be Skyping and recording a podcast with an expert on Colombia’s conflict. During the first half of the afternoon I’ll be on a call with border groups and then have a meeting with a migration-focused philanthropy here in town.
When not in meetings, we’ll be launching a memo—it’s become a full-blown report, really—on the current child and family migrant crisis at the border and what to do about it. I’ll also be putting final touches on a presentation I’m giving at the American Association of Geographers’ Annual Meeting tomorrow, nailing down the last couple of meetings for my border trip next week, and writing another 1,000 words on an overdue article about U.S.-military ties for a Latin American publication.
Also, my spidey-sense tells me that CBP could release its March numbers showing a huge increase in migrant apprehensions at the border (they did February on March 5), so responding to and contextualizing that could derail things.
