Earlier today I was arrested with 17 other Jews and allies in the Cannon congressional building in Washington, DC, as part of a #NeverAgainIsNow protest against the US government's detention and abuse of immigrants in American-run concentration camps around the country.
As an American Jew, I grew up hearing NEVER AGAIN. Never again can we allow the horrors of the Holocaust. Never again to death camps and forced labor. Never again to ripping children from their parents. Never again to weaponizing abuse, indignity, and dehumanization.
As an American Jew, I also grew up hearing where the world fell short; where humanity failed to live up to that rallying cry of NEVER AGAIN: Cambodia. Bosnia. Rwanda. Darfur. I learned that NEVER AGAIN is both a call to action and a reminder of the cost of inaction.

If you're reading this, I have just been arrested with 17 other Jews and allies outside of the ICE Detention Facility in Boston, protesting the US government's detention and dehumanizing abuse of immigrants in concentration camps at the border and around the country.
Growing up Jewish, I heard the message over and over from my elders: NEVER AGAIN. Honestly, I heard it so often, I got a little impatient, as kids sometimes do. I thought: I get it, I get it, you don't have to keep saying it. Obviously the Holocaust should never happen again.
Surely everyone understands this now.

I am heartbroken to have grown to understand what they already knew. We are now a country locking children in cages, forcing grown women to drink from toilets, forcing men to live in cells so cramped they can't lie down to sleep.

some people think that @HouseOversight is on the side of #undocumented Californians; they'd be more wrong than right

because when it comes to adults apprehended inside the border, they won't be bothered threadreaderapp.com/thread/1095736…
it would be great to share that with this group, but @facebook marked that last link as #spam; never mind that it doesn't lead to a commercial site. $FB's algorithms are dumb, making a platform that suites users needs isn't a high priority for Zuck tab.bz/u76q4

#Dems care about the #6A #8A #HumanRights of #Undocumented
people? Why didn't any of the @HomelandDems part of this delegation? cbsnews.com/news/lawmakers…
You'd think that this would be of importance to one's constituents in the #CA46

Monsters get to be monsters in the #BudgetDeal that #congress negotiated yesterday.

As noted months ago, it is a bi-partisan effort from the #USA to give our #undocumented #neighbors little more malicious disinterest. californianational.party/way-undocument…
The U.S. Congress has committed to continue to pursue a policy of traumatizing #children who are U.S. Citizens as it has since the turn of the century. tab.bz/mj52f

There's a tack that's deadly to the cause and injurious to the truth. And that's what's been provided heretofore. Trump's message must be one of "feeling the pain" of those caught in a situation that Americans feel as well but must be given priority. Think carefully.
Meanwhile as the pathetic left continues to grind out the theme of children wrenched from the arms of their parents the rest of the real world focuses on the ever-evolving #IGReport that proves nothing short of astounding to those of us who care about that which is pertinent.

I feel like this is an episode of #RickandMorty, but we have to do a sequel to first #TwitterStorm now with 280 characters. I will be going through this #GOPRiot where they loot middle-America. So the thread begins here. 1/?
Not that the #GOP cares about #DACA or #undocumented families. But they use #SEC11022 to not allow undocumented parents to receive a tax credit for their children. These is cruel unjust and unAmerican. 2/?
#Sec11023 With the language to repeal the #JohnsonAmendment contained in the house amendment they have allowed an increase of cash contributions to #Charity as a means to funnel the money to #GOP candidates in a tax free fashion. This is not what Jesus would do or want. 3/\?
