Summer Vacation in An Age of Concentration Camps, Part 1: “Setting Forth.”

I can’t afford to be blithely doing research on faraway things, reviewing tenure files and going to the beach this year. I’ll take my summer “vacation” this year on the Southern border. I won’t tour a limestone cave, I’ll tour a migrant shelter. If I camp, it will not be on White Sands under the wide stars, but outside a CPB facility near El Paso, with a protest sign and a generator. I’ll need it, because I’ll be taking my camera phone and Twitter feed with me. Join me if you can.
