July 27 virtual meeting: Pedro Rios to speak on the Border Patrol’s recent forays into local law enforcement

tdp_pg_16_17_BorderPatrolProtests_01The topic for this meeting is the Border Patrol’s increasing forays into the realm of local law enforcement, particularly its involvement in suppressing Black Lives Matter protests.  Pedro Rios, Director of the American Friends Service Committee’s US/Mexico Border Program, will be our guest speaker and will discuss his thoughts about this disturbing development and the dangers of having an unaccountable paramilitary force that operates with impunity involved in responding to civil actions.  You can RSVP for the meeting by registering here.  If you’ve already registered for this particular meeting you do not need to do so again.  We’ll send registered attendees Zoom info prior to the meeting.
