Today I’ll be very hard to contact. I may not be in my office at all. Text me if it’s urgent. (How to contact me)

The Inter-American Human Rights Commission will be holding hearings this morning about Colombia and about U.S. migration and border-security policy. Simultaneously. So I’ll be at OAS headquarters from early morning until lunchtime.

Then I have a lunch meeting and two later-afternoon meetings with human rights defenders working in Mexico, Colombia, and Venezuela. And somewhere in there I must finish preparing oral testimony for a hearing of the Tom Lantos Congressional Human Rights Commission on the situation of human rights defenders in Colombia. This hearing is scheduled for Thursday at 9:30, but still not 100% confirmed to happen, as it’s a chaotically busy week on Capitol Hill.
