I’ll be hard to reach today. (How to contact me)

It’s going to be a busy one—and it’s also my last day in the office this week, as we’re leaving town for a quick vacation Thursday through Monday.

I’m in a morning meeting with Colombia’s visiting human rights ombudsman, then a phone interview, lunch with a colleague I haven’t seen in a while, and speaking in an afternoon webinar with Mexican and Central American groups that work on border security and migration. In the bits of time between those, I’ll be doing tasks related to our October 16 Colombia conference and covering today’s House committee markup of hardline border-security legislation.
