Wow, 7 years.

7 years ago, I remember sitting down by myself in my living room.

I listened as the requirements for #DACA were announced.

Little did I know how my life would change. 1/
To qualify for #DACA my undocumented self needed to find documents that documented my life in the US.

I went to the hospital I had gone to since I was a little girl & asked for my entire medical record. I remember the receptionist’s face when I told her I needed a copy ASAP. 2/
I went to my elementary, middle and high schools, looked through hundreds of photos, documents—everything to prove I have been living in the US since I was 2yrs old.

Fast forward to the day I received my work authorization card. Wow, my first official US gov document. #DACA 3/

.@ICEgov just issued a statement touting their stepped-up enforcement activities at worksites across the country. Here’s what you should know about what’s really going on. 1/ ice.gov/news/releases/…
.@ICEgov says that their “worksite enforcement strategy continues to focus on the criminal prosecution of employers who knowingly break the law” but, at least in the context of the #TNraid, that’s absolutely untrue. 2/
To date in the #TNraid – the largest worksite raid ICE has conducted since 2008 – @ICEgov has taken no actions against that employer. No assets frozen, no charges, no arrests. The plant is still fully operational and hiring! 3/

1/ BREAKING: @TheJusticeDept has just authorized immigration judges to deny #asylum applications without a hearing. Like most Trump-era administrative violence, it has been unnoticed & unreported.

*sound of Scotch pouring into glass*

2/ Important context: As head of @TheJusticeDept, the Attorney General has final say over all cases before the administrative #immigration courts. AG may snatch a case away from the Board of Immigration Appeals anytime and decide it himself by directing BIA to refer it to him.
3/ Here is the 2014 BIA holding--upholding precedent from 1989--which the AG was so intent on getting to his own desk. It may not mean much to anyone who had the good sense not to go to law school, but take a shot. (No, really: *take an actual shot* and give it a try.)

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.” nym.ag/2CY43Zc
We’ll continue the fight for #Dreamers like Daniela Vargas. #HereToStay bit.ly/2CLOeRZ

It's still hard to believe that the #DACA program ended today, and that there is still no concrete legislation passed for 800,000 of us.
you know something, DACA really changed things. Not only for 800,000 of us, but for our families & communities. For me it came my senior yr
You cant undo our work as DACA recipients. You cant take back our education. You cant unsee our stories of triumph and struggles #HereToStay

1/ When I say that @ICEgov lies, this is not lawyer hyperbole. They lie. Constantly. In the face of evidence & good taste. Today's example:
2/ @ICEgov New England PR office released a retaliatory statement last week re: a client who was in the news. (I'm not using his name here)
3/ The statement said that he had a misdemeanor criminal record. He has no criminal record. (Here's a screencap from his MA CORI.)

Y'all ready for a "did you know?" thread about undocumented immigrants? Well sit down & you'll see how it's not as simple as people think
Did you know there are over 11 million undocumented immigrants living in the US? This is also not by chance but b/c of broken policies
Did you know that 42% came legally and over stayed their visas? Did you know that in 2015 Canada had the highest number of overstayed Visas?
