I wanted to say something for a few days.. now that I have had time to sit with it.. I will share.

I want to make something clear. We are all in this together. Its us vs. trump. Its not this group and that group vs. another group vs. trump.

We are all in this together. We all want the same things here. We want this maddness of trump and administration to be done with. We don't want division between us. It doesn't help anything but furthering frustration.
2/
We need to look at the bigger picture here. Its not this group over that group. I can't stress that enough. Ive seen too much of that going on that I can't sit by anymore. Some resisters are giving up because of it. Let's stop this group division. Let's focus on the real problem

I've seen some confusion about the emergence of 🆘 and #SOSAmerica2019, so I want to clear that up right now.

SOS is a group of ordinary people who have seen that our politicians are unwilling to take drastic action to get Trump out of office.

So we, the people, must lead. /1
The amazing protests in Puerto Rico have inspired us.

The sustained, massive protests in Hong Kong have inspired us.

Russians protesting Putin have inspired us.

Sudan rising up against their military regime has inspired us.

Pakistan, Algeria, France, have inspired us. /2
So now we're planning for sustained, mass protest.

We don't want to do it alone. We are boosting and planning to boost every protest against Trump.

We are reaching out and planning to reach out to the many amazing orgs we know are fighting this fight.

It's NEVER been about "Doing it the right way," or "Legal vs Illegal Immigration."

Trump--MILLER--wants to cut immigration, period. Legal immigrants are just as bad to him. No visa. No green card. Deportation! If your child so much as got reduced lunch.

Here are the emails wherein MILLER got a bit hot under the collar a year ago bc he couldn't force USCIS to create regulations that would change how green cards are approved, in just days. He has no clue how things work.

Cuz Stephen Miller is a putz.
politico.com/f/?id=0000016c…
Miller, as everyone in the administration & beyond knows, just wants to reduce ALL immigration. He's said as much.

But this new Public Charge rule, which they're saying could be published in Final Form any day now, will have the add on effect of potentially killing people, too.

@USATODAY @jomareewade @ACLU .@ACLU has filed a motion asking Judge Sabraw for clarification on WHEN EXACTLY CBP is allowed to separate children from their parents, cuz right now, they're doing it for crazy stuff.

911 children separated since June 2018.

185 of them under 5yrs old.

@USATODAY @jomareewade @ACLU In this update on the Ms L vs ICE case, the govt is CONTINUING to separate children from their parents for spurious, nonsensical reasons. Decades old DUIs, traffic tickets, misdemeanor shoplifting offenses, minor drug and fraud charges.
@USATODAY @jomareewade @ACLU @ifindkarma @DemocracyStorm @axidentaliberal @B52Malmet @TrinityResists @TrisResists @porpentina2017 @moved2italy @DanaScottlo Of the 185 children under age 5 that were separated from their parents by CBP, 13 were UNDER ONE YEAR OLD.

Infants. Tiny babies.

They were likewise separated for ridiculous reasons that would never be tolerated in American courts, for American children.

We waited for election officials to give us a "do-over" after the 2016 election

We waited for Republicans to save us

We waited for the courts to save us

We waited for the Mueller Report to save us

We waited for a newly elected #Democratic House to save us

They didn't save us
Only #WeThePeople will save us

Speaking out will save us

Pressuring our Congresspeople will save us

Action will save us

Flooding the streets will save us

Caring about our country will save us
