The #Biden admin has a plan to shut down the #border. But it needs #Mexico's help.

The admin hopes to unveil a series of executive actions that President Biden can sign but will likely have to wait for the outcome of Mexico's June 2 presidential #election.

President Joe #Biden directed top aides to develop plans to stem illegal migration months ago, & they are eyeing a presidential authority in USC § 212 (f), which would let the president unilaterally “suspend the entry” of specific groups of migrants whenever the number of attempted border crossings grew too great.

👉 Con la llegada de la “Cuarta Transformación”, su política de gobierno incrementó la militarización hacia los pueblos y comunidades indígenas, especialmente en territorio zapatista. Los grupos paramilitares y el crimen organizado operan con toda impunidad como garantes de la imposición no solo de megaproyectos de muerte como el Tren Maya, el Corredor Interoceánico y el Proyecto Integral Morelos; están al servicio del Estado y el gran capital para llevar a cabo el despojo del territorio, la Madre Tierra y la vida.

La ola de calor que esta afectando a Mexico no es ni excepcional ni inesperada. Es tan poco excepcional e inesperada, que sin duda se repetira con mayor intensidad en los proximos años - no solo en Mexico, sino en todo el mundo.

Estas ahora comunes olas de calor son producto directo de la polucion emitida por los combustibles fosiles. Mientras sigamos contaminando nuestra atmosfera, las olas de calor seguiran incrementando en frecuencia e intensidad.

Cinco de Mayo is Indigenous history. The battalion that helped defeat the French in Mexico was composed of Nahuas from Puebla called the Zacapoaxtlas. And the president, Benito Juárez, was a Zapotec who helped protect Mexico from Euro re-invasion, showing heroic examples Native resistance to Еυrope

Today is Cinco de Mayo, a day of festivities that has morphed from a relatively quiet commemoration of the Mexican army’s victory over French troops in the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862, into a U.S.-centric, taco-infused, margarita-fueled celebration. But this year, Atlas Obscura is marking the occasion with this deep dive into Mexican culture. https://flip.it/tFksmY

That could ease political pressure on , but are likely to continue attacking him by pointing out that border crossings remain relatively high.

#Trump at a rally in Waukesha, #Wisconsin, again contended without evidence that the #protests at college campuses over the #war in #Gaza were an effort by the left to distract attention from the surge of migrants at the #border. “Some people are saying they do the colleges so they can get your eyes off the border,” he said, repeating an assertion that he made on social media last night.

Any personal/or in group activity can be done inside any private place (you pay for it, for your confort and safe)...

But in a public place anyone can walk, jump, shout, sleep or stay ..no matter what: Mexico is for the mexicans and we can do what ever we want bc is in our law and constitution and our land..we arent putting in risk or attacking someone else

This issue went in Durango México and they didn't respect the free public transit

One of the focuses of the recent Mexico biodiversity expedition was finding these interesting Ditmars' horned lizards. I found the first one, of only two found on the entire trip. This was not a range extension, per se, but more of an infill between known ranges in the sky island region of northern Sonora.

There is a tradition that you have to kiss the first one you find and then a bottle of tequila is opened for the occasion. Out of four trips, this was the first one I ever found.

They are fascinating little creatures. Their main predators are ravens and small canids like coyotes and foxes, so they are not particularly afraid of large animals like us or cows or deer. They are quite docile and even a wild one will take a grasshopper offered to it without trying to run away.

Alt text (because the site keeps crashing): first photo is a small horned lizard sitting in the palm of my hand. Second photo is me fake-kissing the same lizard while holding it.

@categulario
I'm guessing they probably weren't the Ditmars horned lizard though. There are quite a few other species. This one, so far as we know, is specific to this region. But who knows! Maybe this species lives much further south than we realized.

On one of the expeditions last year, there was a weevil expert named Kevin from Veracruz.

Me gustaría conocer otras partes de México! Sólo conozco Sonora porque esta muy cerca de Arizona. Algún día...

@categulario@mstdn.mx avatar

@Mikal you are right, the ones here must be Mexican Plateau horned lizard. There's even a picture of one from that very place I'm talking about in wikipedia.

Come anytime and if I'm here I can show you around (:
