Former Police Officer Derek Chauvin Found Guilty of the Murder of George Floyd, but the Fight for Justice for Victims of Police Violence Continues – BORDER NETWORK FOR HUMAN RIGHTS

Read the full statement from BNHR executive director Fernando García on the guilty verdict today in the trial of former Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin for the murder of George Floyd: https://bnhr.org/justice-for-george-floyd/

⬇️⬇️⬇️

"In the context of our long history of police impunity, particularly in relation to harm inflicted against Black people and people of color, we are encouraged by this guilty verdict holding former officer Chauvin accountable for his heinous crime in a court of law. However, today’s verdict cannot bring George Floyd back–or Daunte Wright, or Adam Toledo, or Breonna Taylor, or Erik Salas Sanchez, or Daniel Saenz, or Daniel Ramirez, or any of the 984 people who have been killed by the police over the past year in our country.

BNHR will continue to work with our allies in the Black community to demand transformative change to our policies and institutions and fight against the over-policing and militarization of our communities. Just as we did throughout the course of the pandemic, we will continue marching for justice, putting pressure on our elected officials, and holding our leaders accountable, including by bringing about accountability and oversight to the El Paso Police Department. We will not stop until the police stops killing us, and justice is truly served."

Vera: Such a heavy DPS presence in Starr County is unnecessary

The militarization of our communities has to stop! It's a waste of taxpayer money and subjects US border residents to harassment. Starr County Judge Vera: “Our people are complaining that they are getting stopped and getting cited. So, even though that was not the purpose of DPS being down here, and I was assured that they were not going to be stopping people and giving a lot of warnings, that is what is happening" Texas taxpayers have wasted $2.4B on an ineffectual border "surge" since 2014.

RIO GRANDE CITY, Texas – Starr County Judge Eloy Vera says local residents are getting sick and tired of the heavy DPS presence. Drive along U.S. 83 and they are parked every 100 or 200 feet, he said. Unless there is a speed chase they have nothing to do but write tickets for motorists with […]

The Border 'Crisis' That Wasn't

Executive Director Fernando Garcia warned months ago that a manufactured crisis at the border would "not only derail hopes for comprehensive immigration reform, but derail the administration itself.”

“The border is going to define, for good or for bad, how the nation is going to look," added Garcia.

In December, Fernando García, the executive director of the Border Network for Human Rights, gave the incoming Biden administration a warning—that if they ignored the needs of migrants and asylum seekers at the border, it would quickly become a manufactured crisis, one that would, as García put ...

ICYMI: BNHR Executive Director Fernando García joined MSNBC Live with Kendis Gibson and Lindsey Reiser this morning to discuss the situation at the U.S.-Mexico Border - our nation's New Ellis Island - the false rhetoric of a "security crisis", and the urgent need for a governmental response that invests in institutions to welcome migrants and demilitarizes the border region.
