Everyone can be politically active. Join your local groups like AAUW (American Association of University Women) and make sure you let your legislators know what issues impact you. Today I am at AAUWs Leadership Team meeting in Santa Fe. Tomorrow we lobby for Women’s Issues.
Border wall talks have met an impasse as Dems and Reps disagree on key issues. The primary disagreement, according to anonymous government sources, is access to detention beds by ICE. Democrats see limiting the number of available beds as a way to curtail ICE activities. As for border wall moneys, that number is set somewhere between 1.5 and 2 billion – far less than the president’s 5.6 billion dollar request.
