Things @CBP is doing right now:

-holding migrant families in "iceboxes"
-forcing border-crossers through deadliest routes
-sending snipers to #sanctuarycities enforce non-criminal deportation orders

Things CBP is not doing:
-effectively screening incoming travelers for #COVID19
CBP has the largest immigration enforcement apparatus IN THE WORLD and could easily refocus all of its efforts on this and nothing else. Protecting us from contagious disease is one of the only reasons that they arguably need to exist at all, and they are simply refusing to do it
History will try to understand where our national priorities were if not this, and this is the answer: torturing innocent Central American families before deporting them back to spread #COVID19 to their own countries

Look at this: "The Trump administration is deploying law enforcement tactical units from the southern border as part of a supercharged arrest operation in sanctuary cities across the country.." #FridayFeeling #SanctuaryCities
2-"Gil Kerlikowske, the former commissioner of C.B.P., which oversees tactical units along the border, said sending the officers to conduct immigration enforcement within cities, where they are not trained to work, could escalate situations that are already volatile.
3-"He called the move a “significant mistake.”

Yesterday we covered the Trump administration's clear warning to #SanctuaryCities and #SanctuaryStates -there will be consequences for policies the DOJ/Homeland Security find objectionable. We're already seeing this play out in NY, NJ, WA, and CA. #NexstarDC
"You're actively undermining law enforcement. You put officers at risk...We're looking at all our options with respect to #SanctuaryCities cities and states, because of the harm done to public safety and national security." -@KenCuccinelli w/Homeland Security #NexstarDC Image
@KenCuccinelli "We're not going to give in to his kind of threat or intimidation. California doesn't share his form of xenophobia." -Congressman @RepAdamSchiff in response to President's commitment to take action against #SanctuaryCities #SanctuaryState #NexstarDC Image

#MoCTrack 1/27…
The great folks at @538Politics provide our Trump Tracker numbers, showing how often each MoCs vote with #IMPOTUS.

We took all those 2019 numbers and show you each lawmaker’s high and low point, as well as their 2019 average.

“We’re here to ensure accountability.”

A public accounting in the real OC for the OC Sheriff and Supervisors’ use of county resources for immigration enforcement, a thread!

#UncoverTheTruth #ICEoutofCA #ICEoutofOC #BastaHate #TruthForum #DefendSanctuary #SanctuaryCities
California law requires a public accounting for counties engaged in immigration enforcement, for ex. transferring people to ICE custody. One of many state policies enacted in response to a decade of expansion of jail deportation operations. #truthforum #truthact #transparency
The hundreds of #sanctuarycities across the country are also part of this reaction to unprecedented expansion of federal deportations programs trying to utilize local and state resources. #TheySaidNope #EndSCOMM #Basta287g #SafeCommunitiesAct #TrustAct #NoICEAccess

The immigration shitstorm continues: AG Barr overrules Matter of X-K and finds that those transferred from 235(b) proceedings to full removal
proceedings after credible fear are ineligible for release on bond but must be detained for duration of proceedings unless granted parole
here is the link to Matter of M-S-…
I was struck by the tone & diction which kinda sounds like whomever was tasked with drafting came from OIL or civil not from within the immigration ranks. It does not contain the usual and well worn lingo of a BIA/AG decision of past. As if it was a recycle of Jennings SG brief 1

Just thinking while unloosing the caboose:

Wouldn’t it be great if colleges and universities ( in sanctuary cities) make some dorm rooms available and create a 90 day English and skills program for all the immigrants trump will dump at their cities soon?
#SanctuaryCities #winwin
I think i am going to run with this.
While hiring a ton of down on their luck veterans who have labor skills ( mechanics, engineers, electricians...)

We can 501 (c) this.

Hundreds of migrants (invaders) apparently try storming California point of entry, as Trump threatens to close entire border…
U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials have suspended northbound and southbound vehicle and pedestrian crossings at the San Ysidro port of entry.
It was not immediately clear if any members of the caravan made it past the point of entry into the United States.

Yesterday @LAPDHQ was looking for more victims of this Lyft driver accused of rape, today he was released and no one knows why? Let’s take a wild guess #SanctuaryCity @ICEgov care to explain @AGBecerra why rapists are being let out of jail after days? #TakeBackCalifornia
This is absolutely nuts? How do you go from $2.2 million bail to just “released” and @911LAPD doesn’t know why? We need more than that @JerryBrownGov @DHSgov anybody?…

In February 2017, the Charlottesville City Council voted to remove the statue of Robert E. Lee from a local park named for him & in June they voted to rename it “Emancipation Park.”…
On May 13, 2017, #WhiteSupremacist Richard Spencer led a rally to protest the removal of the statue. His protesters held torches near the statue (as seen in photo used later for August #UTR)…

.@waltshaub has been great on Twitter but he couldn’t be more wrong in mistaking a hashtag from a substantive argument. #AbolishICE is a clear and necessary phrase for an agency that has gone largely rogue.
As a community organizer and now as a City Councilmember, many of us called for #AbolishICE in mid-2000s when we dealt with T. Don Hutto and the abusive deportation of a pregnant Philly Chinese businesswoman who miscarried twin fetuses after a violent deportation attempt.
ICE was awful under Obama too and DHS Head Jeh Johnson was unforgiving when we met with him to state that we would not back away from our Sanctuary City status.

Yesterday @POTUS said that #Immigrants trying to enter the US are #animals, not people.

Let's look at who he's talking about.

#Trump will separate children from parents to discourage #Immigrants, even those legally requesting amnesty. 1/6 #sanctuary
Not people? So it's okay to separate children from their parents indefinitely?

Does that @CBP officer look proud of his job? 2/6 #dehumanization #RacismInAmerica #SanctuaryCities #sanctuary
This mother and son look like #people to me.

For some reason the @CBP officers don't seem to want to be in the picture. 3/6 #prisonreform

More hospital for me, today.
The rest of you, remember to breathe and keep the toxic at bay.
And take in some beauty.

The tulips and daffodils are in bloom!
Thanks so much to all the lovely, kind people wishing me well. Your support is so vital.

It was a harrowing day. #Cancer is a slog, but I am managing (except for some trolls who have sad lives).

I remain grateful for all of you, for great docs, for my fab fam.

Thank you. 💜🌿
Filing columns from hospital beds is exhausting.
Once, when I was at @PhillyDailyNews, before email was a thing, I wrote my copy long-hand from the ICU. That story, about the ICU, was later nom'd for Pulitzer, but all I remember was thinking those might be my last written words.

1) Attribution to an #Anon. Not wholly my work. Poke holes where required.

“It's not a Budget it's an #Omnibus"

It’s not an official ‘Federal Budget.’ It’s an Omnibus bill.

Did @POTUS outsmart them yet again?

#QanonPosts #Qanon #TheStormIsHere #DrainTheSwamp #Q
2) Congress basically screwed themselves by not passing a formal budget. Per the Constitution, the #President must adhere to a budget set forth by #Congress and direct the expenditures as provided therein.

#PaulRyan #SenateChairman #Pelosi #Schumer #DrainTheDeepState
3) This is another one of those big Porkulus bills like they gave #Obama for his horrid 8 years. An #omnibusbill may have some ‘instructions’ as to how the money will be spent, but #Obama ignored them.

I hope @SenSchumer and Senate Dems will agree to start holding votes on immigration since they've insisted upon debating it for weeks. First they shut down the government over this, now they’re slow-walking a start to the debate.
.@SenSchumer says #SanctuaryCities have nothing to do w/border security or #DACA. My #SanctuaryCities amdt focuses on smart immigration enforcement. Following immigration laws & protecting citizens from dangerous criminals in our cities is the 1st step to a secure border.
Immigrants want safe cities and communities as much as anyone. My amendment allows cities to protect illegal immigrants who come forward as witnesses or victims of crimes. This is about everyone’s safety.

As we begin to debate the issue of immigration, @SenSchumer is blocking a vote on my amdt to address problem of dangerous #SanctuaryCities, putting interests of criminals before public safety.
For there to be a good-faith bill on #DACA, dangerous #SanctuaryCity policies must be addressed: DREAM Act says if you commit certain crimes, you lose protections & can be deported. If local law enf. can’t cooperate with DHS/ICE, then this provision is virtually unenforceable.
I once again ask my colleagues to focus their attention on the serious problem of dangerous #SanctuaryCities. There's lots of misinformation about #SanctuaryCities so here are the facts.
