What a mess in more ways than one.
Check it out:
Earlier this week I reported about Border Patrol agents in Nogales being threatened with firings after photos of overwhelmed conditions were leaked to the media. Since that time, all personal electronic devices belonging to agents have been banned from the Nogales processing center, where thousands of unaccompanied children from Central America are sleeping in chain-linked cells. Media has been banned from the area and tours for press are not being granted or approved.
However, while the media is being kept away, others are being allowed into the facility. Rev. Jarrett Maupin, who is running for a seat in Arizona’s 7th Congressional District, was granted a tour earlier this week. Maupin has close ties to Rev. Al Sharpton. According to OurCampaigns.com, he currently serves as a national board member for Sharpton’s National Action Network [NAN] and as the President and CEO of the Arizona Chapter of the NAN.
