@dcexaminer why are you spreading fake news? Mueller has said this is not true over a week ago... "Mueller's 'pitbull' drafted obstruction indictment against Trump" washex.am/2WmHXKm
The special counsel’s office is flatly denying author Michael Wolff’s claim in his new book that Robert Mueller drew up a draft indictment against President Donald Trump for obstruction of justice. dailycaller.com/2019/05/28/mue…
"Siege: Trump Under Fire," reportedly claims that Robert Mueller drew up an obstruction of justice indictment against President Trump – but a spokesman for Mueller says the claim is wildly inaccurate. foxnews.com/entertainment/…

29% of immigrants have a college degree, similar to American-born counterparts at 30%.
48% of #immigrants who have entered the U.S. after 2010 have a degree.

#Immigrants make up 5% of the U.S. prison population while representing only 7% of the total U.S. population.
Contrary to @FoxNews @WhiteHouse #AlternativeFacts & #FakeNews, immigrants are NOT more likely to commit a crime than the native-born population.
#Resist @Trump
#Immigrants participate in the U.S. labor force at a higher (slightly) rate than native-born Americans & earn consistently less than native-born workers. 25M+ immigrants are workforce members.

I majored in History of Religion at University of Chicago, focused on studying evangelical Christians. I spent a lot of time @Moody_Bible and talking with other evangelical leaders.

I was moved to learn that many had a true Mission of Love.

@Moody_Bible I was (and remain) a secular Jew, but learned that the message I had received in the 1980s about evangelicals was not comprehensive. Many were good, decent folks motivated by prayerful love not hate.

I can't say that today. Where is that prayerful message of love now?

2/
@Moody_Bible For Christians who see Trump as God's "imperfect vessel" you are conflating your Mission with his actions and words. We are not getting the nuance you seem to see.

The entire morning shift at my regular @Starbucks was staffed by people of color today. Boycott them if you must but please know: the real problem isn’t a coffee company. The real problem is white people calling the police on us for existing.
To be clear: if boycotting is what you believe you need to do in the wake of the arrests, do you. But the issue at stake - the right for people of color to exist in the same spaces, in the same ways as their white peers - is MUCH bigger than one company with a clueless employee.
Bias, discrimination, racism, fear, misinformation, ignorance and anger ALL played a role in what happened at that @Starbucks. Those things go beyond coffee chains and are, sadly, part of who we are as a nation. This is a teachable moment. Learn from it and #beBetter.
