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, an org and as a community made up of folks directly impacted by the state of immigration in this 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
