So proud of the #DACA recipients who are meeting with @POTUS today. The sense of urgency has never been greater for our families. I also want to take this moment to highlight the #Dreamers who are graduating medical school today.
My friend, @DenisseRojas26 is graduating from @IcahnMountSinai. She’s about to be Dr. Denisse Rojas, all while doing so much advocacy to break down barriers for immigrants pursuing healthcare careers. She inspires me every day! 🎓⚕️🩺cc: @PHDreamers
And then there’s, Julio Ramos. I had the privilege of sharing part of Julio’s story in this piece I wrote:

NEW❗️on #DACA from @claudsDC @NSvajlenka highlights the critical role that the program continues to play for hundreds of thousands of #Dreamers, their families, and our communities. #HeretoStay #WeAreHome 🧵

Any day now, a federal judge in #Texas will rule on #DACA, a policy that allows certain young immigrants who arrived to the U.S. as children to access a renewable, 2-yr work permit and a reprieve from deportation.… @MALDEF
#DACA has allowed recipients to put their skills and abilities to full use, giving them a greater sense of stability. More than 83% of previously surveyed DACA recipients reported that increased earnings has helped them become “financially independent.”…

My office stood up to the Trump administration every time it tried to trample the rights of New Yorkers and Americans across the country. 
We worked tirelessly to challenge this administration's illegal attacks — and we successfully stopped some of its most dangerous ones.
We successfully:

✅Protected #DACA and the right of #Dreamers to live here.

✅Preserved the integrity of the #2020Census & stopped the citizenship question.

✅Defended access to the Trusted Traveler Program.

✅Guarded the health coverage of millions who depend on the #ACA.
➡️Took dozens of legal actions to protect the environment, including over 70 actions in 2020 alone.

➡️Stopped attacks on the #USPS and attempts to undermine our election. 
➡️Protected women’s constitutional right to an abortion and reproductive care.

and so much more.

Thread. My life in pictures. Four years of this. Over. Thank the Goddess. Marching for immigrant rights after the hateful Muslim ban, marching for freedom of the press. Marching against the hateful T***p regime. 2017 was an activism year that didn’t stop. 1/
Every January, a Women’s March. Not this year! 2/
Marched to see his taxes. Marched against his 1.5 trillion dollar tax scam, rammed through by #MoscowMitch in the middle of the night. 3/

No es lo mismo un #CheektoCheek que un #têteàtête.

AMLO - TRUMP: #CheektoCheek

Abro 🧵
La relación bilateral entre 🇲🇽 y 🇺🇸 se tradujo en una relación unilateral.

Amenazas y mano dura por parte de @realDonaldTrump hacía México para lograr sus objetivos.
El Gobierno mexicano mantuvo cierta “estabilidad” en la relación con EE.UU., cediendo a las peticiones de la #CasaBlanca, siempre y cuando Trump no se metiera en asuntos internos de México.

Los pilares entre ambos países fueron: migración, comercio y seguridad.
1) 2015: En campaña, Trump: ¨Cuando México envía a su personas, no envía a las mejores. Están enviando gente con muchos problemas. Están trayendo drogas, crimen, son violadores y algunos asumo que son buenas personas, pero yo hablo con guardias fronterizos y eso tiene sentido”.

The Unity Task Force set #democratic policy & legislative goals on #ClimateChange, healthcare, the economy & #jobs, criminal justice, education, & #immigration.…
@AOC & @JohnKerry chaired Unity Task Force on the #ClimateCrisis. It set a national goal of net-zero greenhouse gas emissions for all new buildings by 2030 & eliminating carbon pollution from power plants by 2035, in addition to net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.
"I think we actually made far more progress than I think I even anticipated,” Sunrise Movement co-founder Varshini Prakash told Vox, because many of the advisers on #ClimateChange nominated by #Biden were "equally amenable to ambitious action as many people on the #Bernie side.”

America’s Voice Election 2020 Weekly Digest: check out this week's election storylines at the intersection of electoral politics and immigration.
"#DACA on the ballot this November... This should be troubling news for the GOP given that in poll after poll, approximately four out of five Americans, including a majority of Republicans, want #Dreamers to remain in the U.S. permanently."
A new poll from @amprog shows "Americans recognize the important contributions that immigrants are making to combat the pandemic, and—by large margins—support granting legal status and a pathway to citizenship for essential workers."

.@FWDus President @TheToddSchulte issued the following statement today after the Trump Administration issued a new memo to radically slash #DACA protections, setting the stage to end DACA if Trump is re-elected:…
“To start: it is critical that everyone acknowledge the dangerous situation in which President Trump has been operating: He has, for weeks, remained in open defiance of the Supreme Court by refusing to accept new #DACA applicants.” — @TheToddSchulte
“Now today, the Trump Administration announced plans to move ahead on a two-step plan to kill #DACA, while pretending otherwise. First, they will move to radically reduce DACA benefits effective today...” — @TheToddSchulte

So ends a political career which proudly included, among many other things:

-voter suppression
-harsh drug prosecutions
-going absurdly hard on cannabis
-knowingly causing lifetime trauma to kids at the border
-trying to deport #DREAMers

Couldn't have happened to a worse person
Sessions could have retired yrs ago on his record as a racist paleoconservative Senator, but he'd had one career goal since the year I was born: running immigration enforcement.

Trump granted his wish, on the condition Jeff eat Trump's shit like it was Sunday dinner. So he did
Sessions was obsessed w/denying those brought to the US as children their #DREAM, and carried a unique hatred for the #DREAMAct. He lobbied Trump for the privilege of ending #DACA. And he happily designed Trump's family separation policy.

What does this man have against kids?

I hear the dog whistle again. This time against Hispanic Texans. When will @JohnCornyn learn? I encourage every Democrat to join me in condemning John Cornyn’s race baiting. (1/?)...
Using @BetoORourke and @JulianCastro and @JoaquinCastrotx in this way is just a dog-whistle to the farthest of the right, the the racists and the segregationists within his own party and within America.
Minority groups are just a tool to John Cornyn--groups he can point to and say "look what I'm going to do!" But, of course, Cornyn never does anything. People have a misconception John Cornyn has done something for Hispanic, Latinx, and Tejano communities in Texas. He has not.

Once again, @GreenhouseLinda, captures the essence of the matter. The #DACA opinion was a bigger deal than highlighting a lawless process for dealing an important issue; it was a recognition of the reliance issues that #Dreamers face and matter.…
As @GreenhouseLinda noted, Roberts emphasized that the program affects not only the #Dreamers, but also their families, “including their 200,000 U.S.-citizen children,” “employers who have invested time and money in training them” and state and local governments.
The sad coda is that this message is not being heeded by the federal government and there is now a renewed effort to end the program and deport the #Dreamers. We must remain vigilant and fight this effort.…
