• Update on weirdness

    Update on site issues: (1. replies now need a title *and* something in the message box, 2. certain links are causing strange pop-ups on Apple devices, and 3. Some folks can't type anything into the text box.) Basically, a series of unfortunate events set us back on testing. We'll get to it as soon as we can, and hopefully things can get fixed by this weekend if not before.  More info: https://jackpineradicals.com/boards/topic/site-problems-more-info/

    Brazilian Immigration Surges Increase as Trump’s Inauguration Approaches
    01/10/2017 – 13H23



    When Donald Trump promised to strengthen border policing right after he won the election, João (not his real name), who is from the state of Rondônia, realized it was time to speed things up when it came to crossing the border, so he set out to do so before Trump’s inauguration on the 20th of January.

    “Whenever a Republican takes office, the country becomes withdrawn”, João told Folha last week on his flight back to Brazil after being deported from the Bahamas for trying to illegally enter the US from the Caribbeans.

    The data indicates that many others agree with João’s logic: the number of Brazilians detained and deported at the US border went soaring since November, which was when Trump was elected.
