🚨BREAKING: In an extraordinary move, the Trump administration just asked the Supreme Court to take up three federal court orders currently blocking Trump’s termination of #DACA. Thread ↓ 1/ #DefendDACA
This is the Trump administration’s second attempt to sidestep the normal process of appellate review and throw #DACA in front of the Supreme Court before the three federal appellate courts have decided the issues. 2/ #DefendDACA
To #DACA recipients: federal court orders protecting #DACA remain in effect. If you have DACA, or have had DACA in the past, you can still file to renew. Learn more informedimmigrant.com/guides/daca-re… or unitedwedream.org/renew-my-daca/ 3/

A story in honor of the #TexasSenateDebate:

My parents live in #EastTexas, in a district represented by one of the most conservative members of #Congress. However, my mom is one of the most liberal I know.
After 39 years of marriage, my dad finally let my mom put a bumper sticker on the back of his pickup truck (b/c #Texas) that said "I vote for Democrats." @TexasYDs @scyd_texas @texasdemocrats @BGTX @SmithDems
A few months ago, my dad had to take his truck into the shop. While it was there, one of the workers scratched D-E-M-O-C off the sticker so it read "I vote for rats." Understandably, my mom (who is 71 & under 5 ft, but raised 6 daughters & terrifying when need be) was angry.

One year ago today, President Trump announced he was ending the #DACA program. With the stroke of a pen, he could fix it and give #Dreamers the future they deserve in the only country they call home. #SaveDACA
Since President Trump announced he was ending #DACA one year ago, he has rejected at least 6 bipartisan deals to give #Dreamers a future here in America. He’s proven time and again he has no interest in solving the crisis he created.
Instead of working with Democrats, Trump has sabotaged every effort to save #Dreamers and tried to put his entire hardline immigration agenda on their backs. We need bipartisan action, not hateful, anti-immigrant rhetoric. #DreamActNow

6 years ago, the government began accepting the first applications for the #DACA program, changing the lives of 800,000 young immigrants who could now receive temporary protection from deportation, study, and legally work in the only country they have ever known. #ProtectDreamers
I was there when #Dreamers came to Navy Pier by the thousands to apply for #DACA. They just wanted the chance be a part of America’s future. nytimes.com/2012/08/16/us/…
Gloria was the 110th #Dreamer whose story I shared on the Senate floor. She’s a medical assistant and studying to be a clinical psychologist. Her story: facebook.com/SenatorDurbin/…

A short important thread on DACA: 1- Those who have DACA, go ahead & put in your renewal application even if your status doesn’t expire in 150 days. USCIS will accept the renewal application for NOW. 2. As of Aug. 8 there could be a 🛑 stop on all renewals from a fed judge in TX.
Update on DACA litigation: nilc.org/issues/daca/da…
On August 8, 2018, there will be a preliminary injunction hearing in Texas v. Nielsen (U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas – Judge Hanen).

@realDonaldTrump DEC 8, 2010: House votes 216-198 to pass the DREAM Act. All but 8 Republicans vote no, incl Ryan, McCarthy, Scalise

DEC 18, 2010: DREAM Act is filibustered in the Senate, 55y-41n. YESes are 52 Ds + 3 Rs. NOs are 5 Ds + 36 Rs incl McConnell, Cornyn, Thune
@realDonaldTrump @RepSwalwell : The @HouseGOP defeated our 22nd attempt (since @realDonaldTrump announced #DACA’s termination) to bring the bipartisan #DREAMAct to the floor for a vote. Remember this when they claim they'll help #Dreamers, as more than 3/4 of Americans want.

@GOP @realDonaldTrump Any chance that’s because his immigration policies are based on racism, xenophobia, fear mongering and lies, .@GOP?

What’s positive about orphaning innocent immigrant children?

His policy to separate families was so bad he had to back off.

@GOP @realDonaldTrump .@GOP

His Travel Ban was so obviously a Muslim Ban he failed twice at passing it and had to add nationals from NK and Venezuela to go around it.

It was supposed to have a temporary suspension (90 days from certain countries, 120 for refugees) while vetting was improved.

2/
@GOP @realDonaldTrump .@GOP

Trump has taken advantage of the fact most Americans are unaware of immigration legislation and how it works to lie to them.

He lies about how the Diversity Visa Program (“visa lottery”) and Family Sponsored visas (“chain migration”) work.

Never give up hope. When we give up, there are countless others whose lives will be hurt far more than they are now. This is when we find out what we are made of. Get involved & channel your anger into electing candidates at all levels of government.
Let's elect candidates who will fight for universal healthcare, who will fight to end gun violence, who will fight for women's rights, who will fight for our union brothers & sisters, who will fight for #Dreamers & those who want to come to America for a better life
Don't allow this dark cloud that this current administration has caused to be the reason we stop fighting. That's what they want & what they're counting on. Let's show them that America is truly better than racism, xenophobia, trans & homophobia, Islamophobia & outright hatred

THREAD: I've been going hard at @RepCurbelo and @RepJeffDenham for working with Trump and Stephen Miller to write a bill that eviscerates our asylum laws and would detain kids for months or years. #FamiliesBelongTogether

I want to walk you through what this bill does. /1
This is the bill they wrote behind closed doors. Curbelo and Denham got to be original cosponsors of this bill in exchange for turning their backs on #Dreamers and abandoning an effort that would have brought bipartisan immigration bills to the Floor today. /2
See how they strike clause (iii)? This is the part of their bill that says Border Patrol can remove unaccompanied children from the country--without ever seeing a judge, lawyer, etc.--even if the kids do not have the capacity to understand that they are agreeing to be removed. /3

The Trump Executive Order to stop separating kids from their parents is classic lipstick on a pig. Their border policy is still an immoral and un-American pig.
There is apparently no plan, nor ability, to reunite parents and kids that are now separated. Some parents have been deported without their children and it may be impossible to identify other children who are being held. The damage already done is deep and long lasting.
The Executive Order will permit indefinite detention of families with their children in internment camps, even though that’s illegal under existing law. The Flores case prohibits indefinite detention of minors, accompanied or not.

The horrific #Goodlatte #immigration bill soon up for debate isn't something to be "compromised" with. It's a harsh, intentional, irrevocable shift Trumpward.

Shred it.

Burn the ashes.

Scatter them upon the Antarctic plains.

Here are just a few of many reasons.
(1) CRIMINALIZATION of unlawful presence in the United States: White supremacy writ into law. For past 228 years, simply *being in U.S.* w/o permission was a civil offense w/no consequence other than deportation.
(NB: This was quickly rejected in 2005, but much more likely now)
(2) ONE HUNDRED THIRTY BILLION UNITED STATES TAXPAYER DOLLARS to fully militarize the Mexican border.

Even @Heritage, which otherwise mostly likes the bill, balked at this as "hard to justify." You don't say.

Yesterday @POTUS said that #Immigrants trying to enter the US are #animals, not people.

Let's look at who he's talking about.

#Trump will separate children from parents to discourage #Immigrants, even those legally requesting amnesty. goo.gl/1qLtoL 1/6 #sanctuary
Not people? So it's okay to separate children from their parents indefinitely?

Does that @CBP officer look proud of his job? 2/6 #dehumanization #RacismInAmerica #SanctuaryCities #sanctuary
This mother and son look like #people to me.

For some reason the @CBP officers don't seem to want to be in the picture. 3/6 #prisonreform

Rubin is right. The Demokkkrats and their media operatives are 100% freaking out over Kanye West & Candace Owens being 'woke' because that means the end of the gravy train for them. That's why DNC is now betting everything on illegal alien #DREAMERS 🙄
And, I feel for @REALStaceyDash , one of the first black women in Hollywood to openly walk off the Democrat Plantation. She's been called every racist name in the book by "tolerant" Leftists. She's been blacklisted & boycotted. Kanye's not the brave one, SHE is. @ScottAdamsSays
The chickens are coming home to roost for the #CorruptDNC 😃They deliberately abandoned middle-America (white working class) in favor of pandering to every fringe&minority group they could create via #IdentityPolitics.That worked for a bit.But not after the disastrous Obama years

I was pondering about why #Congress was so quick to abandon #DACA. After years of #Dreamers protection, literally without a battle. Wouldn't they want the votes? Now we have a #CaravanOfIllegalls approaching the #BorderWall. No fear though @POTUS has activated the #USMC.
If they don't care about the votes it further confirms for me that if #HRC won, the plan would have been to eventually flood the country with immigration and destroy the #USA like the #UK.
(Follow me now)....
We would lose the 2A then the 1A.
We the People would no longer exist. Disarm the people then you can do anything you want to them. Control is the name of the GAME and DATA feeds control. Once we lose America we have an easy shift to a global government under the guise of ultimate freedom of the earth. New tech!

1) Ready for a new #FalseFlag event? Here goes.

In about a week, approx. 1,500 (and growing) #CentralAmericans, most from #Honduras are ignoring #immigration checkpoints, military bases, and #police in an organized march toward the #USA #border.

#QAnon @POTUS #BorderWall
2) Despite their being in #Mexico without authorization, no one has made any effort to stop them. Organized by "a group of volunteers called Pueblos Sin Fronteras" (People Without Borders). Yeah right. #Fake and #staged.

#NWO #openborders #Soros #FalseFlag #QAnon #BuildTheWall
3) They're calling it a caravan, intended to help migrants safely reach the United States, bypassing not only authorities who would seek to deport them, but #gangs and #cartels who are known to assault vulnerable migrants. This is the lie being fed. What's the #truth?

As Trump’s March 5th deadline for #DACA fast approaches, #DREAMers remain in limbo.

3 Court decisions to block the Trump admins phase out of #DACA give recipients temporary relief, but those cases can be reversed at any point!

DC, March 5th:
MARCH FOR THE #DreamActNow
I urge you to call your representatives and tell them you demand protection for #DREAMers

The fear these Americans feel as their own nation refuses to act is too painful to bear. Imagine your life hung on the thread of GOP indifference.

Demand your reps pass the #DreamActNow
Don’t be intimidated by the prospect of calling your representatives. They work for you!

Here is a short primer on how to make the best calls.

The current dialogue about #DACA affects everyone in the US. How?

#Racism & #scapegoating & affect all minorities.

Deporting #DREAMers & undocumented #immigrants will have very negative impacts to the #economy. That affects everyone else. THREAD 1 #DreamActNow #immigration
The sociological concept of the “other” is important to this discussion. If you haven’t heard of it before, here is a brief overview from othersociologist.com/otherness-reso…. 2 #identity #race #sociology #Science
People in power define social identities as they have the means to control the narrative – news coverage, platforms to broadcast their platforms, & the power to influence law enforcement and legislation. Social identity affects how people perceive themselves and others. 3

This afternoon the Senate is turning to DACA and immigration, beginning with a “motion to proceed” vote. The burden is on Republicans to fix the mess that Donald Trump made on #DACA, as a majority of Americans want them to. [Thread]
Remember, we got here because Donald Trump ended the DACA program back in Sept. And 20,000 DACA recipients have already lost their protections as a result. He then rejected a bipartisan agreement reached by @SenatorDurbin and @LindseyGrahamSC, because it wasn’t racist enough.
So here we are — in an open debate on immigration with a Republican-controlled Congress. If you care about immigrants and #Dreamers, you should be worried. And while we all want relief for Dreamers, we can’t and won’t take just any deal.
