The executive orders have been released, changes are starting to take place but our work continues.

This is what the #BidenAdministration has done in its first few days/weeks in office & what it still needs to act on in order to truly achieve #MigrantJustice

From racist & xenophobic rhetoric that culminated in mass raids, Muslim bans, kids in cages, family separations & more..the Trump Admin tried to tear us down.

In it's final hours, all we can say after an excruciating & exhausting 4yrs is THANK YOU to all who answered the call.
It wasn't easy. As attorneys, social workers, advocates...as an org and as a community made up of folks directly impacted by the state of immigration in this country...it was not easy. It. Was. Damn. Hard.

But we will build back. And the fight for #MigrantJustice will continue.
We will reunite families.
We will tear down walls.

And we pledge to not only build back everything that was destroyed these past 4 years, but push to create something BETTER.

#TrumpsLastDay didn't come as quickly as we'd hoped. But it's here.

The election of @ReverendWarnock & @ossoff to the Senate with pro-immigrant agendas, makes the demands of our communities clear.

#MigrantJustice is a mandate.
FYI: Pres. Trump had no legislative success and was still able to make 400 changes to immigration ‼️

Trump's Admin showed us it can be done. Quickly & effectively.
There's no reason it can't be undone in the same manner.
"At a time when people are dying at the border, of #COVID19 in detention centers, & millions continue to live under the shadows, we have no time to lose. It is imperative that @JoeBiden take bold executive actions on immigration IMMEDIATELY and w/o delay." - @ErikaAndiola
