Here is an article I found about how to help support displaced Mexican people over the Mexican/US border https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.cnbc.com/amp/2018/06/20/where-to-donate-to-help-immigrant-children-and-families-at-the-border.html
This interview is a great example of what we learned in class about agenda setting. Kingdon tells us there are policy problems and solutions in the policy universe and when “windows of opportunity” occur, those solutions find their way to the policy agenda.
Neil Swidey talks about immigration reform in Boston 100 years ago, when there was a need to fix a broken system and the policy solutions proposed focused on particular groups. He notes that “There are no new ideas in immigration policy”, we are repeating history.

Boston's Immigration History Repeats Itself In Trump's Policies: President Trump's stance on immigration isn't new to America's history. Boston Globe Magazine writer Neil Swidey says a group in Boston used these same tactics, even the same rhetoric, 100 years ago.
I call but you don’t answer
so I try again
the heart never stops beating
until the end
You probably don’t know this, in fact, I know that you don’t know this, but I think about you everyday. I think about you every morning and I think about you every night. It’s only in the middle of the day, where I can distract myself from you.
I didn’t want to leave without telling you. It was the only way. I will come back for you.
I would do anything to find you. I would do anything to put a working phone in your hands. I would do anything to hear your voice. It kills me psychologically not to know how you are doing, not to have you by my side. The last year has been better and more rich, because of you. Because you were around.
I hope you are not mad at me. I hope you don’t hate me. I hope you understand. Most of all, I hope you remember me. I hope you remember that our last words to each other were “I love you”.
I want you to be safe, healthy, and happy. I want you to wait for me. Maybe I want too much. Maybe I still don’t understand how the world works.
I want to tell you that I’m safe and healthy. I haven't felt happiness since I left you, but I’m busy. I’m in Central America and busy with work. I might be heading to Africa.
I want to tell you how unfair it is, that I can travel the way I do, that I get to live the life I do, because I was born to upper middle class parents in America. I looked into getting you over here. It’s difficult. It’s difficult and unfair and I’m fucking sorry. Thai citizens have difficulty even for a place like Costa Rica and it was the difficulty of the US visa that made me look elsewhere in the first place. I feel ashamed about America’s immigration policies and then I kind of understand it at the same time and I hate myself for that. I’d trade places with you if I could.
Please wait for me. I’m waiting for you.
