ICE Raids Return to Instill Fear, Sow Hatred Before Mayday Marches at Of América. We're fighting against a sick cycle of giving hope to migrants and then sending the gestapo out to hunt them down. Just before the big May Day marches we have one of the largest raid sweeps in several months.

Something There Is That Doesn't Love A Wall from Smart Borders.
Walking along this wall, I am a ghost among ruins. It lacks a roof on the other side, to shelter a family or a friend. It is only one long wall, which doesn’t serve to protect those enclosed inside. Though it only continues a couple hundred yards, it is easy to imagine it going on forever, past light posts and stop signs, past bakeries and magic shops, past bookstores and groceries, past schools and prisons. How strange it is to come across a wall which does not contribute to a home.Something there is that doesn’t Love a Wall - Part 3
SOMEBODY GET THE POPCORN READY at Border Reporter. The People United are staging a walk across the border to prove how 'easy' it is to cross. Border Reporter sees this as a press pander and I have to agree. (Surely there will be an accompanying video on You Tube.)
I wish the group a good trip, and even moreso, I hope them an uneventful trek. The less attention for the feverish, the better, I always say.
