#REDFLAG: In Feb, after Trump was forced to reopen the government for 3 weeks, following the 35 day #TrumpShutdown...

...a bipartisan committee hashed out an immigration funding compromise to avoid another one.

But...WHERE. DID. THE. MONEY. GO?

[THREAD]
nytimes.com/2019/02/14/us/…
#ATTN: The bipartisan deal included:

🔹 $1.375B — 55 miles of New Fencing.
🔹 $524.2M — Ports of Entry + 600 New Border Agents.
🔹 $415M — Humanitarian Aid at Border.

AND...

🔹 $563.4M — for Immigration Courts, (incl. $59M for) 75 NEW JUDGES.
🔹 $527M — Aid to Central America.
#FLAG: Congress JUST passed funding for 75 new Immigration Judges, largely to hear asylum claims.

Today, AG Bill Barr boasted about DOJ's progress...PRIOR to this year.

Yet, he's requesting $72M to hire 100 new judges in FY2020.

But...WHERE DID THE MONEY GO FROM THE LAST DEAL?

THREAD: Last night, the Pentagon informed Congress that it authorized the transfer of $1 BILLION to build Trump's border wall.

TODAY the House votes to override Trump’s veto of Congress’ decision to block this illegal #FakeTrumpEmergency.

cnn.com/2019/03/25/pol…
When he didn’t get his way during the 35-day #TrumpShutdown—which cost American workers billions—Trump declared an illegal national emergency to build his border wall.

Congress soundly rejected his illegal declaration. Here’s why:
ILLEGAL: The president can't just declare “an emergency” and turn the Pentagon into his private construction company...

At issue ia 100K payment from Jho Low via Larry Davis ➡️filled RNC/Trump’s coffers.

Davis’ parents in law pleaded guilty during a Clinton-era financing scandal.

B/c Low is not a US citizen, he is barred from making direct or indirect donations to US pols or to PACs.

Wow

Where to even start

First, you’re not speaker any more

And your party’s “ideas” were so soundly rejected during the midterm elections that you lost an historic 40 seats

But let’s go a little deeper. Let’s look at Trump’s “accomplishments” and see if we are “better off”
With Trump and the GOP gutting the ACA and fighting Medicaid expansion, people who pay for healthcare are certainly #NotBetterOff

But healthcare and drug companies, and people that own them, sure are. Just ask your friend Chris Collins.

The millions adversely affected by the #GOPTaxScam are #NotBetterOff

On the other hand, all the companies and wealthy CEOs who used the tax cut to buy back stocks and become richer were probably thrilled

Anyone that knows a lot about the middle east want to help me out with some bots/trolls?
They don't like #Iran or #Qatar
I found them while looking at the #Russia hashtag, they are either bots or a coordinated trolls. Haven't figured it out yet.
I highlighted them here in the tweets I pulled for #russia
They all use the same naming convention, have similar creation dates, and similar "stats', they also have very similar descriptions.
Regular twitter data never looks like that.
After pulling a timeline for about 20 of them you can see they are tweeting close to the same thing at the same time.

To sum up today’s #Trump bullshittery: dude says he’ll sign the funding bill that just passed Congress AND will declare a (totes bogus btw) national emergency so that he doesn’t have to honor it.
Worse, the “conservatives” are all supporting this. Including MITCH MCCONNELL who now suddenly wants to sing about it like it’s free candy.

Aren’t y’all supposed to be AGAINST Federal Government overreach?!

Oh right. Not when you’re the ones doing it.

Jerks.

#TrumpShutdown
If he gets away with this now, you know his team is going to try to figure out how to use this new “national emergency” schtick to f*ck with the 2020 elections.

I made the mistake of looking at @WhiteHouse to see what content they were putting out ahead of #SOTU.

I can't get those five minutes of my life back (please spare yourself!), but I can provide some FACTS on the actual state of our union:
FACT: The gap between the richest Americans and everyone else has grown under Trump’s watch. finance.yahoo.com/news/rich-poor…
FACT: Last year, the stock market had its worst year since the 2008 financial crisis. cnbc.com/2019/01/02/sto…

THREAD: President Trump's approach to immigration has always been driven by fear, not facts. His policies have been disastrous and cruel for immigrant families and communities across the nation, especially for families and children seeking protection at our borders.
Here are some of the facts on immigration that you need to know ahead of tomorrow's #SOTU👇
Contrary to Trump’s account, there is no national security crisis nor an "invasion" at our border. Border crossings have been declining for years - with apprehensions on the southern border plummeting more than 75% since 2000. Check it out for yourself👉

1) THREAD. During #SOTU, President Trump is likely to claim all sorts of success on foreign policy. Let’s break drown the facts.

First, Trump will likely say that the United States is more respected in the world....meanwhile....
2) Trump's own Intelligence Community just assessed that our allies & partners are looking to distance themselves from us. America First = America Alone. U
3) Countries literally laughed at Trump at the UN General Assembly in 2018. That's not normally a laughing bunch...
