Today’s Supreme Court decision blocking the Trump administration’s attempt to tear apart immigrant families is wonderful news. We celebrate with the thousands of DACA recipients who are #HereToStay!…
Immigrants are a part of every community, including the LGBTQ community, and we will continue to resist the racist and xenophobic immigration policies of this administration.

The work continues.
~75,000 LGBTQ immigrants are eligible for DACA. Thousands of LGBTQ immigrants have lived, worked, studied and contributed to our country.

Deportation would mean, for many, harassment, violence, or criminalization resulting in imprisonment or death.

This decision saves lives.

It would not be unprecedented nor unexpected given that Utah is also one of few states that grants driver's licenses and in-state tuition to undocumented immigrants. (I'm originally from Chicago and am intrigued by the pro-immigrant and pro-refugee policies Utah has enacted.) /3

On January 21, 2017, we organized the largest single-day protest in US history. We came together as women, femmes, and allies to speak out, and we set the stage for the resistance movement that continues today.

YOU did this. YOU made this happen.

On January 28, 2017—just one week after the first Women’s March—we flooded airports nationwide to protest the Muslim Ban.

Women who marched together went to airports together. People who met at women’s marches came together again to say #NoMuslimBan.

On January 31, 2017—just 10 days after the March—we went back to DC to voice our outrage of the nomination of Jeff Sessions. We continued our call to #StopSessions for over one year after that.

BREAKING: The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit today upheld a lower court’s ruling to block @realDonaldTrump’s termination of DACA, allowing ~800,000 DACA recipients nationwide to submit renewal applications. 1/ #DefendDACA
@realDonaldTrump Attention DACA recipients! The future of #DACA is uncertain but your ability to renew your DACA is in your hands. If you have DACA, or have had DACA in the past, you can still file to renew. Learn more at @UnitedWeDream & @FWDus 2/
@realDonaldTrump @UNITEDWEDREAM @FWDus Trump’s attack on #DACA more than a year ago upended the lives of hundreds of thousands of immigrant youth and their families. His administration has since gone to extreme lengths to end the program without regard for how it has impacted people’s lives.… 3/

A federal judge ruled late last night that rolling back #DACA “was arbitrary, capricious, an abuse of discretion, or not otherwise in accordance with law.”
We’ll continue the fight for #Dreamers like Daniela Vargas. #HereToStay

HEADS UP: Here are 10 things I’ll bet you didn’t know about the GOP tax scam, but that should get you super angry when you find out:
1) GOP tax scam cuts Medicare! Yup, it does. By $28 billion NEXT YEAR alone.
2) GOP tax scam eliminates the tax credit that encourages businesses to hire VETERANS, especially veterans with disabilities. Not a joke.

As a child of first-generation immigrants, I have experienced the wonder of the American dream firsthand.
As a mother, I want all children to have the opportunities this country provides to my daughter.
President Trump’s decision to rescind DACA is shameful. It flies in the face of the values and spirit that built our nation. #DefendDACA

I won’t stand by while @POTUS threatens to deport thousands of children & students. #DREAMers, I will fight to #DefendDACA.
Kicking out 800,000 DREAMers isn't just a complete moral failure, @POTUS. Terminating DACA also reduces GDP by $460.3 billion over a decade. Image
In KY more than 2,500 of the nearly 3,000 DACA recipients are workers—educators, engineers, nurses & leaders—who contribute $151M to our GDP Image
