Thread: Take a look at the ICE news release section of their website and see how they spin things to fit their agenda. ice.gov/news/all
This one is about an ICE officer that raped women while on the job then told them that the police won't help them because he was a federal officer. Headline says arrested on "federal civil rights charges" that "allege" he sexually assaulted 2 women. ice.gov/news/releases/…
That's a strange way to say rape. Also uses "alleges" to cast doubt on the story. It even includes this important note "An indictment contains allegations that a defendant has committed a crime. Every defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty."

Largest Homeland Security Raid in US History Nets 130 Illegal Aliens and Indicts 17 Business Owners!

#WalkAway from @TheDemocrats who put #IllegalAliens before #AmericaFirst and want to #AbolishICE and #DHS~

Support @realDonaldTrump and #BuildTheWall!
thegoldwater.com/news/33866-Lar…
So this is pretty amazing work by DHS, not just because they targeted illegal aliens, but because for the first time they went deep into Nebraska and started handing out indictments to business owners who continue to hire illegal aliens- charging them w/ federal money laundering.
Every one of these jobs are decent paying, and majority skilled trade jobs.
Loggers, Ironworkers, carpenters, asphalt/grading crews, major pork processing plants; several careers in construction and manufacturing-
These business owners are taking food away from American families.

Because of #CatchAndRelease a sexual predator was let go because of #KeepFamiliesTogether they could not separate him from the 13yr old he claimed as his daughter and because of #SanctuaryState CA he won’t be deported for raping her. This is the #OpenBorders legacy #BuildTheWall
Congratulations @TheDemocrats you enabled a thirteen year old girl to be brutally raped and abused but don’t worry, he’s safe in California and will be released into our communities because #AbolishIce right? You are all sick.
Cover your ears liberals, @ChuckGrassley AND @SenFeinstein have requested an investigation into abuse at detention centers that went IGNORED during the Obama admin😱Including detaining children in handcuffs where was everyone? The complaints started in 2014 #KeepFamiliesTogether

'Trump Derangement Syndrome has no natural stopping point...'

One grandiose act of vandalism is soon exceeded by another.

The true resistance is in topping all previous acts of resistance.

#AbolishICE? Nah.

Abolish the presidency.

Thread on growing threats targeting immigrant and refugee survivors and how we can support as part of #FreeThemAll National Week of Action. #SurvivedAndPunished #AbolishICE

Immigration laws have always been rooted in the violent history of genocide and slavery. Fleeing violence (migration) is often deeemed "illegal" by immigration and criminal legal systems #SurvivedAndPunished #FreeThemAll #AbolishICE

I’m out in DC this afternoon. #AllOutDC #DefendDC
DC ain’t Charlottesville. I had a cop come up to me on the subway saying he liked my sign.
The tourists are broadly sympathetic, too, and the #MAGA hatters look distinctly uncomfortable.

I have a new piece @BostonReview on how the left needs to take global trade seriously, avoiding nationalism and protectionism and embracing global solutions that we can also implement at the national level. I'm going to tweet some points and solutions.

bostonreview.net/class-inequali…
First, the global trade system is disastrous for the world's workers, both in the U.S. and overseas. The reason is that capital mobility and international legal regimes and disconnected companies from any responsibility to anywhere or anything but shareholders.
Like the late 19th century, recent changes in capitalism have slapped us in the face and we don't really know how to respond. One of those changes is extreme capital mobility wrapped up in neoliberal trade agreements. How do we respond on the left?

I think what separates normal Trump opponents on the right from those who have become deluded, and what prevents those critics from backing moderate Dems, is the inability to recognize that the left has just as many crazy ass elements as the right does
It’s one thing to oppose Trump because he’s an insane, unconservative manchild. It’s another to pretend that his opponents on the left are sane and will save the republic in office. I’m not going to pretend Kamala Harris is great or #AbolishICE is normal or socialism is okay.
Now if you want to advocate for a particular Democrat as an acceptable alternative, fine. I’m with you. If you want to make a case for, say, a Biden who is a known element with more moderate and established governance, I’m all ears. But just pretending “the left” is better, no.

The Power of ‘Abolish ICE’ nytimes.com/2018/08/04/opi… Democrats are shifting left on immigration, and it shows at the polls.
Some folks want to ameliorate ICE rather than abolish it. But I am in the latter camp because ICE has become an entity powered by hatred that functions without accountability to abuse immigrants of color. It is now a monument to institutionalized racism. nytimes.com/2018/08/04/opi…
The idea that the call to #AbolishICE will hurt Democrats is not supported by data. In fact, the opposite is true. Democrats should leverage this moment to redefine the immigration landscape so it is textured by ethics & vision worthy of our party's values nytimes.com/2018/08/04/opi…

With the horrible treatment of immigrant/refugee children in private prisons being revealed, it's worth reposting this thread from my old account, showing how the prisons #ICE uses are filled with abuse; and that ICE is both unwilling and unable to fix it

ICE’s Inspections and Monitoring of Detention Facilities Do Not Lead to Sustained Compliance or Systemic Improvements
oig.dhs.gov/sites/default/…
Summary:
-ICE doesn't comply w/ detention standards
-Contracted inspections not thorough; don't fully examine conditions/identify issues
-ICE inspections thorough but rarely happen
-ICE doesn't work to correct issues after they're identified, leaving problems remaining for years

Records reveal “lax” supervision, sexual activity at Chicago-area shelters housing immigrant children
propublica.org/article/heartl…
#AbolishICE

"Among other incidents, an employee at a Heartland shelter in Chicago was investigated for an alleged sexual relationship with a teenager. And at least 10 children have run away while in Heartland’s care in recent years"
Any system that allows facilities like this to exist is irredeemably broken.

"Records also show that on more than one occasion, not enough staff was on duty to meet the needs of children or employees didn’t have plans to properly monitor them."

1/"A total of 131 people later marked themselves as having attended the June 27 rally outside of ICE’s Washington offices" - this malign effort promoted #AbolishICE, an issue central to Trump/GOP attacks on Dems right now. nbcnews.com/tech/tech-news…
2/This remarkable article details a Russian disinfo effort to blame the DNC hack on the DNC itself. The biggest promoter of this disinfo effort has been the President himself, who even returned to it in his presser w/Putin - realclearpolitics.com/video/2018/07/…
3/Point - it's impossible to unpack Russian disinfo here in US fr what the President says everyday. They've been aligned, working together, playing off one another for yrs. Trump knows they are here, helping. Why he's taken steps to make it easier for these efforts to succeed.

Will Facebook work with other countries’ security services to identify American gov influence ops? nytimes.com/2018/07/31/us/…

Breaking: Facebook has detected a coordinated influence campaign ahead of the 2018 midterms. It has been briefing lawmakers and is expected to announce its findings today. nytimes.com/2018/07/31/us/…
The influence campaign dealt with divisive social issues like Unite the Right 2.0 and #AbolishICE, according to several ppl briefed. Facebook is not expected to attribute it to Russia, but told lawmakers it is possible they are involved.
This could explain why in a recent conference call, Facebook execs refused to answer questions about whether they had detected Russian influence campaigns in 2018, but said they thought such campaigns were "inevitable."

SCOOP w/@kevinroose: Facebook is preparing to announce that it has identified a coordinated political influence campaign, with dozens of inauthentic accounts and pages that are believed to be engaging in political activity ahead of Nov.

nytimes.com/2018/07/31/us/…
@kevinroose FB has been unable to tie the accounts to Russia but company officials told Capitol Hill that Russia was possibly involved.

The company is not expected to name Russia in its announcement.
@kevinroose Facebook discovered coordinated activity around issues like a sequel to last year’s deadly “Unite the Right” white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va. Coordinated activity was also detected around #AbolishICE

In his opening statement @DickDurbin cites @SecNielsen’s June tweet denying a family separation policy existed. He denounces the policy as “government sanctioned child abuse” and calls for Nielsen to step down

Defining “Socialist” isn’t hard. You just have to read their work & listen to their leaders

And what you’ll find is frightening

Worse yet, the Dem Socialists of America (DSA) actually has a good shot of gaining power if we don’t wake up & fight back

Let’s read their plan: 1/17
.@DemSocialists want to abolish capitalism and transfer ownership of “essential” industries / related businesses to the govt or worker committees.

Why?

“Wealth is a social creation and should be controlled by society as a whole.”

(bit.ly/2vfQ7E5)
DSA’ers are squishy when defining which industries they’d nationalize. But the list touches every possible business, from food to electronics

Workers would then vote on which role is best for them, similar to the disastrous experiment at Zappos in 2016. (bit.ly/2DKlGNd)

There seems to be some confusion over when the #AbolishICE movement began or who started it, so let's clear the record: The idea of eliminating the controversial agency has been pushed by immigrants' rights advocates for years.

refinery29.com/2018/07/205854…
When ICE was created in '03, it alarmed some. But when Obama expanded and solidified its power, the idea of eliminating it became mainstream among immigration advocates thanks to the work of organizations such as @ConMijente, @UNITEDWEDREAM and more.

refinery29.com/2018/07/205854…
Ana Maria Archila from @popdemoc told me it's good that #AbolishICE is being amplified by progressive activists. But she cautioned that without transforming it from hashtag to policy, the right wing will define what the movement stands for.

Let's talk about math...specifically Sanders "Medicare for All" plan.

A study by George Mason University estimated that the plan would cost an estimated $32.6 trillion in new federal spending over 10 years.

mercatus.org/publications/f…

How much is that?

#MAGA #tcot

1/MANY
Well, GMU study estimated that DOUBLING all federal individual and corporate income taxes couldn't cover the additional costs.

A 2016 left-wing Urban Institute said about the same thing, estimating it would cost $32 trillion over same time period.

urban.org/research/publi…
2/MANY
So far, the left wing response to this has been to shrug and say "we will find the money somewhere." The only specific cuts they've proposed are to ICE, child detention, and the US military.

So let's do some back of envelope math to see if that's possible...

Hey @TheHill this is factually incorrect.

The call to #AbolishICE was started by undocumented youth and others who were fighting against the unprecendented number of deportations under the Obama administration.
Instead of making #AbolishICE an anti-Trump debate created in 2018 by liberals, we should be giving space to the original voices on this issue.
Honestly, just because your newsroom wasn’t paying attention it doesn’t mean something wasn’t happening.

We saw the erasure of voices of color with #MeToo and the failure to credit Tarana Burke as its creator. Now, we’re seeing it again with #AbolishICE.

Let’s do better.

There are also raids occurring as we speak on other adult industries including a MAJOR porn website, Eros dot com & Bolma Star Services

We also KNOW 100% that #sealedindictments exist in those cases-

How much you wanna bet this is tied to #PedoGate?⬇️

abc11.com/adult-entertai…
North Carolina's local news ABC Channel 11 says " DHS officials explained HSI agents are often assigned to cases involving alleged money laundering, trafficking, and cyber-sex crimes."

There's something major about to unfold, folks, and they've confirmed there is more to this.
