My son's elementary school in Malibu has been significantly impacted as a result of climate change. Today is the 19th day of closure due to complications from the #woolseyfire, mandatory evacuation, and now rain and mudslide threats. WE NEED CLIMATE ACTION NOW!
🔺MIGRANT CARAVAN UPDATE
Monday, the next wave of migrants began their journey from San Pedro Sula, a notoriously dangerous city in Honduras, to the US. Most migrants learned of this caravan via social media and have been leaving by the hundreds this week. Estimates place the total caravan size over 2,000 members; those interviewed simply seek a better life, job, and safety. Franklin Martinez, a father traveling with his daughters, said “I know that in Mexico they are helping us”.
Upon the first wave of migrants to the Honduras-Guatemala border, the caravan broke through a police checkpoint. Guatemala continues reinforce checkpoints across the border to ensure safety for all parties. Last year, chaos erupted when a previous caravan broke through a Mexico-Guatemala border fence.
In Tijuana, Mexico, over 400 citizens gathered to fight for or protest against another influx of migrants. The protest grew into a clash between police, pro-migrant, and anti-migrant crowds. Mexico’s President President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador responded to this news today, noting that ‘it is best for the Central American governments to persuade their citizens to stay’. However those that do enter will be presented options and have their rights respected.
Most migrants of previous caravans returned home or began a new life in Mexico. Their fate of entering the US appears to be uncertain as the US continues without the necessary border improvements. Both the US and Mexico have had tremendous issues responding to previous caravans.

Reposted from @loomered - LMAO so I just went through airport security at San Francisco airport and the TSA agent checked my ID and said “oh my god you’re Laura Loomer! I saw you on the news at Casa de Nancy!” 😂. He said he wished he could take a pic with me but he can’t because he’s working TSA! So I gave him my card instead and he pulled out his wallet and showed me his “trump card”. Then he said “GO TRUMP! Did you go to Gavin Newsom’s house yet?” 😂😂 To make it even better, the TSA agent is Chinese! This timeline is the best timeline! I thought CNN said all TSA employees are struggling because of the shutdown and hate @realdonaldtrump?!? Did they lie like Nancy? OMG!!! What an immorality! 😂😂😂 #MAGA#LOOMERED#CASADENANCY#CALIFORNIA - #regrann

Since leaving Sedona at 6:30 this morning, we have encountered rotating bouts of rain, sleet, snow, clear blue skies and heavy hanging fog. .
As we traveled west and the miles rolled on our eyes feasted on magnificent landscapes new to us that delighted and amazed. .
We also had moments of tension, laughs, cat issues (that’s a whole other story)!gas stops, singing to tunes, snacking and listening to podcasts.
Now with about an hour of drive time remaining before reaching our final destination we are in misting rain with lots of CA traffic - another new experience! .
The takeaways and memories from this road trip are vast, irreplaceable and will be fondly remembered for years to come!
My heart is full and I am grateful to God to have made it safely across the many miles traveled!
An adventurous day with lots of memories made but it’s not over yet!
The adventure continues...
