ON THE TRAIL WITH MIKE HULL ON FOOT ALONG THE TEXAS /MEXICO BORDER
Austin attorney Mike Hull is on a solo walk at the Texas-Mexico border Hull started the trip on Boca Chica Beach and hopes to arrive in El Paso by Thanksgiving. With the “Walk of Hope” he wants to see whether the border is safe or not. He said he wants to see the face of fear and listen to the stories of asylum seekers and people who live along the border. “I want to walk and listen, listen to the people along the border and see what they have to say,” Hull said. “People have been so nice (here), they have been welcoming and inviting, sharing experiences and very, very kind.” Mike got the idea to do this after he read an article about one of the detention facilities for the children who come seeking asylum in the United States. He said he is very interested in that topic and even though he is not fluent in Spanish, he knows “enough to get in trouble.” “I want to see how we treat the children. Are we proud of how we welcome those (who) come with their hope, who ask for our help?” he said in a statement about the walk. “I want to walk and listen and offer my hope.”

PART TWO WITH CAROL WALKER ON THE VANISHING OF OUR WILD HORSES
I think we all can agree after listening to both conversations with carol walker that we as citizens can not allow these ongoing round ups, the tragic separation of these devoted wild horse families within these herds, the barbaric sterilization and the eventual disappearance of the species... this is simply not acceptable.  Contact the BLM (Bureau of Land Management.) Demand a new way of managing remaining wild horse herds. Wild horses have as much a right to live and breed on our open lands throughout our vast western states as any other herd, esp since they are now endangered. Our goal should be to protect America’s wild horses and burros by stopping the federal government’s systematic elimination of these national icons from our public lands. The government can't just continue removing wild animals from the land and warehousing them at an escalating expense, which it has done now for decades. The herds in Nevada and Wyoming are still there but not for long and please go to carol walkers website , and spend some time with her amazing photography. Carol is a remarkable artist, and has captured the spirit of our wild horses

Wild Horses, An Emblem of the American West, with Carol Walker
The BLM rounded up 11,472 wild horses and burros in 2018 and permanently removed them from our public lands. This is almost 3x more than they removed in 2017 and more than they have rounded up and removed in almost a decade. Now with the holding facilities and off-Range corrals full the BLM is desperate to empty these out so they can round up and remove more wild horses and burros this year.The BLM just wants to get rid of the wild horses and burros and doesn’t really care if they end up at slaughter, just so long as they are removed from our public lands and from the holding facilities. In the wild, these horses had been healthy, disease free, and capable of carrying their foals to term. This private holding facility is a house of horrors, a deadly prison for wild horses. Instead of caring for the wild horses, as they are paid to do, they are killing them and covering it up. This facility should be shut down immediately and should never house our precious wild horses again. This is the ugliest truth, that the BLM does not want you to know. What can you do to help? Spread the word and Contact your Senators and Representatives.

A Conversation With Rick Cummings
Rick Cummings has a talent to put in perspective the times we are living through. His knack of spoken word poetry elevates our examination of the tumultuous administrations of both George Bush  and Donald trump. His craft navigates us through this history guiding us into the memory of events that stand out from the war in Iraq through the unfortunate administration of Donald Trump. His themes awaken our dulled minds and senses This is part one of the two part conversation that explores Rick's process  and who has influenced him the most as an artist.

Allegra Love :"We Are Past The Tipping Point"
Have we come to a place where we are numb? Numb from the  onslaught of one unthinkable act after the other ? This may be true  because we have lost our appetite for taking in any more bad news since  Trump.  Are we unable to find compassion these days? We must never close  our hearts to children who are suffering. We have a responsibility to  the children who are undergoing unimaginable consequences because their  families have fled the violence in Central America risking everything to  find safety for their children...these families have no other choice  but to get their kids out of harms way but six children have died in our  custody. Six children who came here to escape death. We are  paying tribute to these six lives a well as to all the children who are  in our custody in this episode today on America Speaks. Immigration  attorney Allegra Love is joining us again to reflect on what she is  seeing on the Texas and new Mexican border, and brings clarity the  brutal circumstances these families are enduring as they wait for their  asylum application to be processed.
