Umm. Hasn't anyone at @MoJGovUK told @DominicRaab that a "Bill of Rights Bill" won't enter the statute books as a #BillOfRights (if passed) but only as a Bill of Rights *Act*?

We still have to wait for the Bill to be published, of course - but the petty press release:…

makes it clear this isn't a #BillOfRights; it's not even a #BillOfGoods - it's a Bill of #Bads and #Wrongs that starts off poorly, and then gets even worse...
Even as it characterises #HumanRights claims as "trivial", the Government reveals its fatuity; the example it gives 👇 refers to a ruling that simply required the UK Courts to see through *their own process*!

Just how "trivial" does this Government consider #DueProcess to be?? Confirm that interim measures from the European Court of Hum

Um, yes it is - it's called the #SecondAmendment.

In fact, the supportive clause says so explicitly; the express purpose of a militia is to hunt human beings.
A brief grammar lesson for those who are in apparent need of such:

The active phrase of the #SecondAmendment simply reads "the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed".

Fourteen simple words, but there's a LOT to unpack here.
In simplest terms, it means unequivocally that the US Government (and, by extension, State Governments) are expressly prohibited from making any general laws to limit, undermine, or otherwise encroach upon the public's #ConstitutionalRight to own and use firearms.

Last week ImmDef's Directing Attorney of our Cross-Border Initiative in San Diego, @CargioliM, was in court on the first day of resumed MPP 2.0 hearings to observe. This thread details what she witnessed. #EndMPP #RestoreAsylumNow #WelcomeWithDignity #AccessToJustice
Asylum seekers in MPP only have from 10 to 12 to potentially meet w/ lawyers on their day in court. That is if they can find a lawyer willing to represent them while being forced to remain in Tijuana, one of the most dangerous cities in the world. #DueProcess #AccessToCounsel
On the first day of MPP court in San Diego since the Biden administration decided to resume the deadly program, there are two judges hearing 7 cases. In the days and weeks ahead these numbers will sadly increase as more and more human beings are placed into MPP.

Why do we need #GDPR #DSAR and data subject rights?
In @TechRegJournal I show that:

cf Westin they provide individuals #DueProcess rights;

cf #Rodotà they provide collective/societal control over systems of decision making.… /1
Contrary to wide held believe, I do not find support for understanding access rights either as “privacy as control” or “informational self-determination”.
Hope this can stimulate discussion on the broad ranging purpose of data protection law, the importance of having some form of a right to explanation, and the essential function of collective action in the area data protection.

In little known move, on 1/14, then Acting USDIS @EzraACohen issued ground breaking memo to significantly reform @DeptofDefense #securityclearance program & enhance individual due process & increase transparency.
2/Many ppl have been working for decades to effect these changes & with one swoop of pen, it is FINALLY now official policy. I cannot speak highly enough of what was accomplished & it needs to be known.
3/Memo follows through on what President Eisenhower started 60 years ago w/Executive Order 10865, still in effect today, what President Clinton created w/EO 12968 in 1995, & what SECDEF Bob Gates ordered in 2011. DoD must now consolidate, centralize & unify all existing

Yes, blame the PNP for framing Cristine’s death as a rape. But blame YOURSELVES for deciding that the correct reaction was to become Duterte and declare suspects as criminals who deserve to die. #SocialMediaPH #DueProcess #BecomingDuterte #DuterteLegacy
This is NO DIFFERENT from all the times call-out culture on Twitter and Facebook have ruined people's lives and even pushed people to commit suicide. This is the first time though that the police itself has USED THIS CALL-OUT culture to get the mileage it wants out of a case.
And let's be clear here: YOU ARE COMPLICIT. You also, by insisting name those men, they are suspects, they are criminals, they deserve no due process! You also, inadvertently, allowed for all that hate against Cristine to surface.

Well taken care of, on the floor, dying of fever! Well taken care! Nursing infants torn from their mothers! Comforted in cages by todders trying to quiet their crying! No food, no water, no beds, no blankets no mothers, no milk, no diapers. Just like #SummerCamp! #Barron sld go!
@RealDonaldTrump #AsylumSeekers come legally to our #PortsOfEntry under our own immigration laws and treaties. The only one who broke our laws is you! UN Treaty Series 1948 Article II Section (e) defines the separation of #MigrantChildren as #Genocide and #CrimesAgainstHumanity.
When #AsylumSeekers present they are assured by our treaties of #DueProcess a hearing before a judge. If we decide not to grant asylum, we have to deport them. We are not allowed to imprison them, dismantle their bodies w/#ForcedMassHysterectomies & steal their children forever.

1/ Any business concern that is into exporting activities generates its sales or revenue out of entrepreneurial ingenuity, funding, production & distribution.

It pays taxes like any other local business concern.

@MthuliNcube @GGuvamatanga @happ_zenge @elias_mambo
2/ Apart from the same taxes that a non-exporting business pays, an exporting business is required currently to surrender a portion of its earnings to the RBZ payable at a fixed rate.

The balance after the #SurrenderRequirement is to be liquidated in 30 days.

@DOJ_EOIR's latest:
“EOIR further memorializes the following policies in order to encourage immigration judges to resolve as many cases as practicable without the need for a hearing and, thus, to minimize contact among individuals in immigration proceedings. (THREAD 1/4)
Resolve as many cases practicable without the need for a hearing? Is this really a time to push judges to deport people? This is an abomination of #dueprocess. As much as we need to adjust to protect public health through this crisis, it should not be at the demise of justice.
The latest from @DOJ_EOIR gives judges carte blanche authority to not hold hearings. They are using a public health crisis to ramp up the deportation machine and roll it right over #dueprocess rights. #ImmDef wont let this happen without a fight. #LaLuchaContinua #DueProcess4all

I had a follower DM me asking why I was excited and “Celebrating” having the Elite Title IX attorney’s following my story. Not wanting to get in an argument, I thanked her and said I would spend some time thinking about her question & send a message out in the group sharing my
perspective. My reasons are fairly simple! First, this group of attorneys, accused student warriors and their supportive family members following my #twitterfeed are amazing. This group together BLAZED a TRAIL & SHINED a LIGHT on #Colleges & #Universities denial of #DueProcess &
#UnFairHearings. #HigherEd Schools have been denying students #fundamentalfairness for years. So without these attorney’s, brave student warriors & supportive families determined to prove their #innocence there would be very little protections for me now as I take the next step

@RepJerryNadler has only one objective.
His Objective is to overpower the @POTUS
His Intense Hatred of @realDonaldTrump is evident
The Denial of #DueProcess by the @HouseDemocrats is
As half my friends and family Cheer, they will be cheering 4 #Mccarthyism
@SpeakerPelosi is allowing her house to become a Salem Witch Trial. She is Afraid of letting @realDonaldTrump have his side represented in a Fair way. Fighting like a Girl. Encumbering the @POTUS with endless legal pokes. Poke him, poke his family, poke his Administration.
If you are Gleefully cheering #schiff and his merry men,
I feel a kindred spirit with @POTUS . My Century Farm was for sale by the Town of Monkton, Vermont. I was a CoOwner with my husband. We were 9 Months Late paying $10,000. The Progressive town Did Not Notice Me.

A thread on some quotes from @gautambhatia88’s “The transformative constitution “In equality jurisprudence, the approach of focusing on the disproportionately exclusionary impact if politics rather than their formal character or motive is known as disparate impact”
“It is based on the premise that inequality and discrimination result not (only) from individual hostile acts, but from structures and institutions.” @gautambhatia88 Only in brackets important & added by me.
An test for entry may be “neutral” but yet exclude by aligning with exclusionary institutions; if an physical entrance test for firefighter includes activities not necessary for fulfilling duties and unintentionally poses #gender-barriers, deserves to be struck down. #NoteToSelf

Most of you are lawyers so you know this, but here's a quickie on #DueProcess to forward to nonlawyers feeling #gaslit

1. Due process (5th Am.) is literally the process due in a specific govt proceeding (impeachment)

2. #DueProcess does NOT always mean criminal trial rights
3. Even in criminal cases, rights like confronting witnesses (6th Am) don't apply during investigation

4. This is the investigative phase of #impeachment, not trial (later in Senate)

5. #DueProcess is less protective of politicians facing removal than people facing prison
6. Trump defines #DueProcess as an unrebuttable presumption of his innocence, in other words immunity from any legal consequence of wrongdoing

7. Trump's equation: Due process = total immunity from #impeachment makes due process synonymous with dictatorship

Thread: #Trump legal team arguments for creating the constitutional crisis of complete #obstruction turns on 3 arguments that are all merit less:
#TrumpOnstruction arg 1.: The House must vote to have #impeachmentknquiry. Nope. Constitution doesn’t require it & neither do House rules. Judiciary must vote articles out & then send to full House. They’re working on it.
#TrumpObstruction arg 2: His #dueprocess rights are being violated. Nope. You don’t have a right to all the evidence before your charges & preparing for trial. And #Whistleblower protection is necessary given enormous power of #POTUS. But Trump knows the allegations. We all do.

You know what's intellectually lazy? Using the same tired arguments after every mass shooting.

We need to find a way to address gun violence so we don't have 49 people get shot up for enjoying their lives. And still preserve the Second Amendment. 1/
People are equating #RedFlag laws to banning guns. And they're just NOT the same thing. 2/

ImmDef is so proud of our client Gerson who travelled to Washington DC this week with @Carecen_LA & our ED @L_Toczylowski to speak at a Congressional Briefing & participate in legislative visits aimed at raising awareness of the root causes of Central American migration. ImageImageImageImage
Gerson came to the US two years ago as an #UnaccompaniedMinor and was granted asylum protection just three months ago. In his own words: “I came to DC speak for those who don’t have a voice because I experienced the same things and I can share my story.” ♥️✊♥️
.@Carecen_LA hosted the briefing in partnership with @CISPES @SistersofMercy to support the #BertaCaceresAct. ImmDef ED @L_Toczylowski also spoke at the event about the crisis at the border and how US policies are endangering lives and denying 1000s of people #DueProcess.

The expansion of #ExpeditedRemoval is a game changer.

Deportation without a hearing has been part of the law for a long time, but now, it essentially turns the entire United States into a border.

#DueProcess of law is dying a horrid death.
First: expedited removal, or ER, applied to noncitizens caught within 100 miles of the border who couldn't prove they'd been in the US for 2 weeks.

Under expanded ER, it's the whole US, and for anyone who can't prove they've been here for 2 *years*.…
If you're in ER, the ONLY way out is to claim asylum and be scheduled for a "credible fear interview," or CFI. Even those have become harder of late. Otherwise, *you just get deported.*

Add to that the family separation, and you can see: THIS IS A NIGHTMARE SCENARIO.

1 good thing abt the on-going controversy over #RUGAMania in #Nigeria is it has brought attention back to what cn be done to address the herder-farmer crises. Since ystrday, a few more ppl have askd me abt the National Livestock Transformation Plan #NLTP. Here's a little more....
The #NLTP process began in 2016 led by @AuduOgbeh's Fed Ministry of Agriculture & with support from the Vice-President, @ProfOsinbajo, who chairs the National Economic Council (NEC). The NEC, in turn, includes all state governors in its members.
The struture & process was inclusive. Consultations took place at state & zonal levels, culminating in a national conference 11-15 Sept 2017 in Abuja with over 770 participants. The National Conference adopted a report which was transmitted to @AuduOgbeh in December 2017

"What can I do to help the children at the border?"

To all of you who've tagged/messaged/texted me over the past few days: I'm humbled by your vote of confidence. I'm just a practitioner/advocate, but happy to offer some concrete steps. #CloseTheCampsNOW

Some context first:
1. Stop pointing out that these cruel practices aren't new. The takeaway isn't Obama was bad or Trump is worse. It's that we're fighting an entrenched system that feeds on detention. Trump didn't build the machine; his administration hasn't shown much aptitude in using it.
2. Total deportation numbers are down from Obama's era. This is a combination of incompetence from this administration, and (take a bow, y'all) "The Resistance," less cooperation with ICE, more legal challenges, and people just showing up.

“We’re here to ensure accountability.”

A public accounting in the real OC for the OC Sheriff and Supervisors’ use of county resources for immigration enforcement, a thread!

#UncoverTheTruth #ICEoutofCA #ICEoutofOC #BastaHate #TruthForum #DefendSanctuary #SanctuaryCities
California law requires a public accounting for counties engaged in immigration enforcement, for ex. transferring people to ICE custody. One of many state policies enacted in response to a decade of expansion of jail deportation operations. #truthforum #truthact #transparency
The hundreds of #sanctuarycities across the country are also part of this reaction to unprecedented expansion of federal deportations programs trying to utilize local and state resources. #TheySaidNope #EndSCOMM #Basta287g #SafeCommunitiesAct #TrustAct #NoICEAccess

Today I was reminded why I'm running for office.

I got off the phone today with a judge who denied my client, headed for Virginia, the chance to apply for asylum.

His case was a slam dunk, especially after a nationwide injunction issued earlier today.
Without quoting a single case, despite our 7pg brief explaining the law, the judge denied the case. My client's tears and trembling voice did not move him, because "lots of people come here from El Salvador with stories like yours, but that doesn't qualify you for asylum."
Yes, it does.

When gang members come and kill off two of your brothers, one after another, then beat and rape two of your sisters, both of whom make it to the US and were allowed to apply for asylum, then you have a claim, too.
