🚨 BREAKING: Thanks to efforts with @MPower_Change, @SAALTweets, and the 2,600+ of you who took action...

‼️ MR. F IS FREE ‼️

It's been a cruel 243 days of his incarceration.

@ICEgov's actions proved yet again that our immigration system was built on Islamophobia. 🧵👇🏽
Let's clarify that ICE has full discretion to release detained folks at ANY time.

Yet, they keep folks imprisoned under false claims, coding their anti-Blackness & Islamophobia into the language of "danger for community" or "threat to national security" like they did w/ Mr. F.
It's inhumane to have incarcerated Mr. F for 243 days. He missed his child's birth, his dietary needs weren't met, and his health was deteriorating.

Prisons, jails, and detention centers are always a public health crisis, but especially when #COVID19 is ravaging through them.

💥ICE Wants to Deport Shakoure, A U.S. Citizen!💥…
2/134 days in ICE Jail & Shakoure's U.S. citizenship STILL denied. Last week's hearing was contentious. Vital records from several agencies have still not been received by his attorney. Without these records, nothing moves forward and he sits in jail day after day. #FreeShakoure
3/Help us free Shakoure before ICE manages to deport him to a country he has never even visited.

Now, more than ever, we must work together for justice and freedom.

We demand, #clemencynow…

Shakoure remains in ICE detention bc DHS is withholding vital docs that could prove his citizenship & set him free

ICE's motivations are rooted in anti-Black Islamophobia & not much else

Join us to demand @NYGovCuomo pardon Shakoure ➡️

#FreeShakoure 1/4
Shakoure's case illustrates the effects of anti-Blackness, Islamophobia & xenophobia in our carceral system. Shakoure already served 24.5 years in prison for the felony that triggered his arrest

But a pardon from Cuomo could end court proceedings & set him free #FreeShakoure 2/4
Shakoure—a Black Muslim youth mentor from Queens—shouldn't be going through this. Especially not from a jail cell while #COVID19 ravages jails across the US

This public health crisis continues to violate imprisoned ppl's human rights #FreeShakoure 3/4…
