With the American flag on the ground #LightsForLiberty protestors raise the Mexican flag and chant “let them out” and “Viva la Mexico” later they raise an American flag with “f**k police” why won’t @SpeakerPelosi condemn this? Most Democrats are praising this group.
Here a protestors rides on the back of a disabled persons wheelchair doing donuts over the Colorado State flag and the crowd goes wild. @AuroraPD has officially stated they chose not to interfere with crowd because it was filled with children and disabled, which is true.
#LightsForLiberty leader tells the crowd that @GovofCO is hanging with Nazis @DonaldJTrumpJr @charliekirk11 outraged that @ICEgov has been referred to as legitimate and starts chanting “f**k Jared Polis”.. someone should tell them Congress is responsible🤷🏻‍♀️

People across the USA (and world!) peacefully championed human rights and kindness on July 12, 2019.

We lit candles, sang, and prayed.

We vowed to #EndUSConcentrationCamps.

Lights For Liberty began with a moment.

Now @Lights4Liberty is a movement… 🗽

1/ “We are a justice seeking people, and we are singing for our lives.”

All over the world, people sang for immigrants, for refugees, for children taken from parents, alone and afraid.

We sang for justice.

We sang for our lives.

#LightsForLiberty ✨🗽

2/ @Lights4Liberty advocates gathered in all 50 United States.

Our community quickly became a massive movement, united together against the culture of cruelty.

This was the first of many peaceful events.

No surprise that a bunch of commies organized and hosted this "protest" at the ICE facility where they took down the US flag & raised the Mexican flag.

Looks like "International Socialist Collective" put it together and the US #Democrats support their agenda.
Here is their Twitter page:

Note that they also want to "destroy capitalism."

Sure looks like an #Antifa fist

While shutting down traffic at Buffalo NY ICE office, a fellow disobedient thanked me for bringing #veterans ire to stop #KidsInCages & family separations. My reply: there's 1000s of us. Here's why I went:

Thanks @NBCNightlyNews @maddow and @AP for telling the resistance story. Our #CloseTheCamps action in Buffalo called out the real estate moguls who are renting office space to ICE & DHS, thus profiting from state-sponsored child abuse. I’m a #veteran. I got arrested.

As the Buffalo 9 occupied an intersection at the ICE field office until arrested, we wore on our backs the name of a child who died in custody, at the hands of the U.S. gov’t. And so, 7-year old Jakelin Caal Maquin stood with me to say, #CloseTheCampsNow !

When #LightsForLiberty was an idea a few of us activists were batting around, we never dreamed hundreds of thousands would mobilize worldwide. I’m awestruck.

But I’ll still consider it a failure if ppl go home & think they’ve done enough just by showing up tonight. /1 2500 pack Lafayette Square at DC’s Lights for LibertyPart of the crowd at a Boston L4L: huge crowd filling the streets and sidewalks.

My greatest hope is that every person who showed up at @Lights4Liberty tonight left ready to absolutely THROW DOWN in the fight against current US immigration policy and practice.

And that ppl left with tangible plans for how to do so.

I have some suggestions. /2
Here are some @Lights4Liberty action steps. Cuz tonight wasn’t the action. It’s what comes next that matters.

1) Find local immigration rights orgs near u. Follow them on social media, join their email list, donate $. I guarantee they need $ & know how to use it well. /3

I attended #NetrootsNation this week, and though I am a liberal not a progressive there were plenty of great sessions. Thur was a session regarding the census with @EricHolder @vanitaguptaCR @AlexPadilla4CA as they were speaking word came that Barr would be joining Trump today😮
@EricHolder is kicking ass on the census, gerrymandering and local elections
Today I marched for the first time in Philadelphia for the #LightsforLiberty rally, hot as hell but wow, they shut down the streets and we filled them.

“Their eyes. I'm haunted by their eyes[.]" - Lawyer on seeing kids inside camps in the RGV #CloseTheCamps

Lawyer: Inside an immigrant detention center in South Texas, "basic hygiene just doesn't exist"… via @TexasTribune
"State Rep. Terry Canales, a Democrat from Edinburg, wrote to the Border Patrol on Saturday asking for a list of items the public could donate to make up for shortages. Canales said Border Patrol told his office it does not accept donations."
"Unable to clean themselves, young mothers reported wiping their children’s runny noses or vomit with their own clothing, Gialluca said. There aren’t sufficient cups or baby bottles, so many are reused or shared."
