Most recents (18)

in an unexpected burst of good news at the merciful end of the worst term in modern #SCOTUS history, the court has agreed that the #RemaininMexico program was properly terminated by the Biden administration

still reading, but on its face this outcome is a tremendous relief for all of us involved in this work and a definitive statement to the next R administration that they can't outsource our asylum processing to other countries
I come not to praise #RemaininMexico, but to bury it.

#MPP was one of the cruelest & most radical policies of an administration elected to perform radical cruelty on some of the most vulnerable people in the world. Its recission does not fix our asylum system, but preserves it

#Breaking: The 5th Circuit shamefully failed to stop a district court decision that will force the government to resurrect Trump’s failed #RemainInMexico program as early as this weekend. Court watchers and advocates should care about this ruling. A thread 🧵about why: 1/9
TX is using the playbook states like CA & others employed in the Trump years to try to stop Biden from getting rid of terrible Trump policies. Gov Abbott thinks scoring points by scapegoating immigrants is a winning strategy & continues to blame immigrants for his failures. 2/9
One lawsuit filed by TX and MO sought to prevent Biden from winding down the heinous “Remain in Mexico” program, which was instituted by Trump and left tens of thousands of asylum seekers marooned in Mexico for months or years with no way to assert their right to asylum. 3/9

.@FWDus today launched Dignity #ForOurFamilies and call for a humane asylum and immigration system to welcome families.

We must stop cruel policies that force family separation at the border and build a better way to #WelcomeWithDignity for people seeking protection. 1/
3 years ago, @FWDus joined a broad coalition with @fams2gether to stop Trump's Zero Tolerance Policy that tore children away from their parents. We galvanized around the public outcry and eventually won the demand to end the policy and reunify families. 2/
Many many folks answered the call to step and help bring comfort and strength -- that's where we created #FlightsForFamilies to assist local organizations with speedy travel for families' end destination. But just as soon as 0 Tolerance ended, #RemainInMexico replaced it 3/

#Immigration is not a debate topic.

But immigrants are central to any conversation about Fighting COVID-19, American Families, Race in America, Climate Change, National Security, or Leadership.

@kwelkernbc may not ask, but no answer‘s complete without raising it. #Debates2020
On #COVID19, millions of immigrants are working alongside Americans as essential workers to fight the pandemic.

3-in-4 undocumented workers are in jobs defined as essential by DHS itself. #ImmigrantsAreEssential
But despite the great personal sacrifices they have made, undocumented immigrants and their families--including US citizens--have been largely left out of the relief that Congress has passed to date.

This is what we have long needed.…

Down with #MPP!

#immigrationlaw #RemaininMexico
(for those reading this born after 1990, this joke is in reference to a popular record album from the late 1900s celebrating the averred joys of unethical non-monogamy, which I have reappropriated to celebrate a temporary end to a truly horrific immigration policy, ok thanks)
(also, in the original recording "down" indicated a willingness to participate in potentially harmful behavior, where in the context of this headline the Ninth Circuit has strongly indicated its opposition to--you know okay maybe I've sufficiently explained this joke now)

Our tax dollars should be invested in education, housing, prison alternatives and health care programs that provide opportunity and increased well-being for all - not in the Trump administration's anti-immigrant and racist policies. #DefundHate #SOTU
The Trump administration continues to promote discrimination against immigrants, people of color, the LGBTQ community, and Muslims. #DefundHate #SOTU #SOTU2020
The Trump administration is ripping apart health care and nutrition programs for low-income people. #DefundHate #SOTU #SOTU2020

#SOTU Sisters of Mercy thread begins here!

Follow along with us as things get going.

A "Great American Comeback" should involve fighting for justice, equity and peace.

Not instigating wars, trade wars or closing the border.

#OurUnionNeedsMercy #SOTU
The Stock Market may be soaring but the least among us are still suffering terribly.

Last night I arrived in Texas w/ my @HispanicCaucus colleagues for an important trip to investigate the Trump administration’s harmful #RemainInMexico policy. We’ll be observing conditions for asylum seekers on both sides of the border today. Follow along here. #DemsAtTheBorder
Crossing the border to Matamoros, Mexico, where families are being sent to stay in dangerous conditions while seeking asylum under the Trump admin’s #RemainInMexico policy. #DemsAtTheBorder
I’m extremely concerned about the conditions asylum seekers are staying in and how long they have to wait to make their case. #DontLookAway #DemsAtTheBorder

#RemaininMexico (or #MPP) horror show of today episode


... but something does not add up
according to thread mom was granted withholding of removal (mandatory form of relief under the INA) as IJ found that she faces more than 50% chance of political persecution if returned to Venezuela. This is an extremely difficult relief to obtain because of the high burden 1/
Dad is a legal permanent resident (has a green card) but we do not know the basis for the grant. If he was granted asylum these should have been follow to join cases so not likely that it was the basis. Perhaps employment based. 2/

#BREAKING @splcenter drops another bombshell report on Stephen Miller and his *extensive* connections with white nationalist hate group @CIS_org.

Why is this so important? Of course Stephen Miller is a white nationalist, right?…
Ramped up #ICERaids.
#TPS loss.
#DACA revocation.
#RemainInMexico protocols.
The #MuslimBan

Miller is often credited as architect of 45's immigration policies, but these policies didn't just appear in his mind overnight. He had lots of help, going back a long way.
The Center for Immigration Studies was founded by white nationalist/eugenicist John Tanton. If you follow me, you know I've been seeking to unseal the private #TantonPapers for 3 years.…

NEW -- @USCCRgov has released a groundbreaking report revealing the depths of cruelty of the Trump Administration’s anti-immigrant agenda, including the detention, #FamilySeparation, #ZeroTolerance, & #RemainInMexico.

#DontLookAway – read the full report:…
@USCCRgov The USCCR report found that the Trump Admin:
❌ Created a humanitarian crisis
❌ Separated families & traumatized children
❌ Discriminated against Latino migrants
❌ Inflicted inhumane, prison-like conditions
❌ Denied justice & legal rights

#DontLookAway #JusticeForOurChildren
@USCCRgov The Commission shares the accounts of migrants who suffered under the Trump Admin’s policies.

Upon arriving in the US, migrants were humiliated, shouted at, and held in horrific conditions.

They waited in ICE custody – cold, hungry, and without medical care or translators.

I’m observing a peaceful protest of asylum seekers forced to live in squalid conditions in Mexico. They have blocked off Gateway International Bridge to protest the Remain in Mexico program. These are the people our government is keeping out #EndMPP
Mayor of #Matamoros is asking people to leave the bridge. Mexican military standing behind us. No one is listening to the protesters complaints of kidnapping and hunger. They’re just asking for protection.
Children started shouting, “We want to study, we want to study!” They’ve been unable to live safely in Mexico and live a normal life. Their entire lives, hopes, and dreams are on hold.

Good Morning everyone! This @NicoletteGlazer twitting as a guest to my mom's account coz Twitter think blocking trolls is automation or twitting about Admin's appalling immigration policies & practices is harassing. So this is twitter version of moving into ur parent's basement.
@NicoletteGlazer Well it is worth the embarrassment because it is a big, big day at the 9th Circuit today. Both the Asylum Ban and #RemaininMexico (MPP) are up for oral argument back to back and it WILL be epic.…

@NicoletteGlazer 1/ Here we go. Asylum Ban I is first. Panel is Judges Fernandez, Fletcher, and Paez. Good but tough panel.

I'm next on the docket ... so will tweet the highlights of the decision after I am done. But stay tuned this one is something else!
Heeyey! I go in for a quick hearing and in the meantime #ImmigrationMonday, I see, has hit us again. Much to chew on but as I promised here is the 4 on Judge Tigar's reinstated nationwide injunction in EastBay Sanctuary II litigation.

@TalKopan first broke the news of the EOIR replacement of in-person interpreter w a video advisals. I just read the scripts for detained and non-detained cases and they are so F*ing misleading. Just wow!
First, advisals are unduly long & complicated. Substantively they are mucho problematic. For example both detained & non-detained are told they have to select country of removal. They dont. In fact, selecting country of origins could be used as a factor undermining fear of return
Second, advising ppl that if they are ordered removed they would be removed to the country sected convey a misleading choice. If you are from Guatemala but just select to be removed to France, is just not gonna happen.

It may be a holiday today but the dreaded #ImmigrationMonday is still upon us and it brings a report by @BorderKindness of another prison immigration camp in the works but this time in Mexicali 🔽🔽🔽

Based on @BorderKindness tweet it appears that this new "fenced/Razor wired" deportation camp is coordinated efforts between CBP/DHS & Mexican authorities, ergo the "planning meeting" and it could very much be a result of the 45-day review of the US-MX june 7 immigration plan. 1/
But after reading and re-reading this tweet, this makes little sense unless there is another piece (meaning immigration initiative, agreement, or policy change) that has been secretly put into effect and we dont kniw about it. Here is why ... 2/

I’d like to think I’m a reasonably well-informed consumer of news about the #MigrantPersecutionProtocols and #RemainInMexico

The things I’m learning at #AILAAC19 from advocates appearing in these hearings daily and serving people subjected to these policies are next-level evil.
.@ImmDef reports of regular family separations, and attempted family separations.

Imagine being told to leave your 12 year-old alone in Mexico because ICE didn’t file the Notice to Appear in Court for everyone in your family. Or being told your infant can come but you can’t.
.@taylorklevy discusses a 7 year-old in court bleeding from the head after getting attacked in Mexico. Didn’t get access to a nonrefoulement interview.

If you sense looming anxiety in the #immigration world, it might not just be the chaos of the southern border. We are also waiting for many, many, MANY shoes to drop...

The final public charge regulation.

The proposed reg was published on October 10, 2018, & comments closed in December:…

As recent DOS numbers preview, this reg could usher in BIG, BIG changes.
A ruling on the #RemaininMexico (#MPP) preliminary injunction.

A hearing in Innovation Law Lab v. Nielsen happened Friday. The ruling could come out any day now.…
