In today's criminal justice news, this hearing transcript about ICE detainers is truly refreshing:…

You should read it in full, and take it as yet another example that ICE is a renegade agency that needs to be abolished

Here's an extended sample (all a direct quote) –

THE COURT: You mean this ICE agent, who was here in court, decides, by himself, without consulting anyone, whether this Court's order will be obeyed or not?

THE COURT (cont'd): He has the power to determine that it will not be obeyed, or he has the ability to comply with the Court order at his discretion? That's what you're telling me?

Doing social media for @NewSanctuaryNYC means I rarely take a break from #immigration news. Every day the Trump administration looks for another way to cause harm to black & brown people. Thread highlights some of the current policies. We MUST not stop fighting back. #impeach 👇🏼
The Trump administration is doing another secretive pilot test in El Paso, this time “Prompt Asylum Claim Review,” a program to speed up deportation of #asylum seekers.…
"These new policies have resulted in the separation of family units, lasting trauma and heartache, and shocking detention conditions for both children and adults."…

Another human caged by ICE appears to have ended his life while in solitary confinement at a for-profit migrant prison, this time in Louisiana.

This would be the second known in-custody death of the fiscal year, with more than two dozen occurring since the regime took power.
Worth noting that the existence of this facility for ICE imprisonment itself is in direct violation of the appropriations authority Congress gave to ICE when it funded detention operations.…
It’s worth asking ourselves what to call prison camps we send people to where they’ve committed no crime, received no due process, and have not been shown to present a flight risk, knowing some number of them will die, and thousands more will suffer

@eli_schiff Vlad seems like the sort of person who goes into an emotional meltdown when you bring up the tradeoffs of policy. So you want to shut down ICE, because ICE "hurts others." Okay, fine.

ICE is responsible for expelling child sex traffickers from the country. Now what?
@eli_schiff I find when you bring up tradeoffs, people's brains short out, and they usually end up angry. Talk about the people being hurt by the homeless on 6th St in ATX, the people hurt by human trafficking at the border...bzzzt!
@eli_schiff So we just stick with #AbolishICE and #NoTechForICE ...okay, well, you can buy a 10-year-old girl for about $80 in Guatemala and traffic her to the border. I assume the ~2 dozen times she got raped on the way hurt her. That's what open borders does. What's your solution?

THREAD: Microsoft DOES NOT CARE about American sovereignty or national security. GOP Senators are right to red-flag Microsoft's crusading on behalf of Huawei. They should also point out the software giant's obnoxious pandering to cop-bashers & the #AbolishICE mob. /1

WOW. Protestors at Georgetown just disrupted DHS Secretary Kevin McAleenan, refusing to let him speak & reading names of children who died in custody.

@DHSMcAleenan oversees ICE & CBP. There should be no platform for his hate. #AbolishICE #ICEfreeGULC

Thank you @CREDOMobile @SanctuaryDMV @dcmuslimjustice & Georgetown students for refusing to allow @DHSMcAleenan a platform.

We cannot normalize attacks on immigrants & asylum seekers.

We cannot excuse or tolerate ICE & CBP’s bigotry. #immconf #ICEfreeGULC
@CREDOMobile @SanctuaryDMV @dcmuslimjustice @DHSMcAleenan What's most disturbing is the moderators saying protesters are “robbing the audience of an opportunity to engage in dialogue."

What about the thousands of immigrants being robbed of their lives & freedom?

There can be no dialogue with human rights abusers like @DHSMcAleenan.

Okay, one last (mini) rant before I bounce for a bit.

Immigration officials using Google translate to vet refugees - this is idiotic and dangerous, specifically for languages like Arabic.

Let me explain.
Google Translate is imperfect (understatement of the century) even for Romance languages.

However, take a Semitic language like Arabic?

Oooooooooooohhhhhh boy, are you going to get some insane, incorrect, and incomprehensible nonsense -- to put it lightly.
Arabic has a vastly different morphology, grammatical structure, and lexical system than Romance or Germanic languages.

Google translate for refugee vetting is batshitcrazy.

Sizable crowd. This looks like it will be an unopposed event mostly consisting of speeches. Can they call it a win when there was no contest? You just watch...

YouTube user “Munkay 83” again tells @AuroraPD to take out their guns and shoot each other. Does #AbolishIce not understand PD are there to protect their right to “peacefully” protest? This is disgusting @GovofCO @FBIDenver @TheJusticeDept #StandWithIce
@KDVR @CBSDenver @DenverChannel @9NEWS grow a pair and show Colorado what these protests are really about God knows @denverpost won’t cover it, they’re probably part of the mob.
Again, what does harassing Police officers there to protect have to do with #AbolishIce? These are the great unwashed with nothing better to do. #StandWithIce #BackTheBlue

#JewsAgainstICE and allies with @CloseTheCampsBA are marching on @PalantirTech to say no to providing ICE tech to terrorize families. Watch live now:
@CloseTheCampsBA @PalantirTech "No human being will ever be illegal."

@CloseTheCampsBA @PalantirTech This morning @NeverAgainActn @JFREJNYC @ConMijente shut down @PalantirHQ NYC to demand they stop collaborating with ICE. Now we are at @PalantirTech in the Bay because we have seen this before. How many of our people would have lived if IBM hadn't helped the Nazis? #NoTechForICE

Update: Wyatt cancelled their meeting and rescheduled it for 6pm tonight. If you're thinking "isn't sundown on Friday when Jews begin observing the Sabbath, and thus not a good time for a public meeting?", you're right. But we'll be there anyway, praying with our feet ✡️🔥✡️
And we won't be there alone! We're following in the footsteps of local immigrant rights groups like @amornetwork, who've been fighting to #ShutDownWyatt since before #JewsAgainstICE was a hashtag. That's why we're splitting all donations with AMOR!…
@amornetwork RIGHT NOW: Hundreds of us are inside the Wyatt Board Meeting, where we’re fighting their plan to privatize the detention center and extend their contract with ICE! #NeverAgainIsNow

ICE is shooting people now.

Your reminder that overstaying a visa (which accounts for the majority of undocumented immigrants) is NOT a crime.

It's not even a misdemeanor.

It's a civil infraction, like jaywalking.

Crossing the border without a visa is a misdemeanor. (But only made so after 9/11.) It's on the same level as possessing weed.

Even in felony cases, it's inappropriate for law enforcement to use deadly force unless the suspect represents an active, violent threat.
If you don't think it's appropriate for someone to be shot for jaywalking, make some noise. Don't let this get buried.

BOSTON: We’re gathering at the New England Holocaust Memorial, getting ready to march against the businesses in our community making money helping ICE persecute immigrants.

This is a crisis, and we have to act like it #NeverAgainIsNow

We were raised with the stories of our ancestors and our people. We don’t make comparisons to the Holocaust lightly.

What we see happening to immigrants of color in the U.S. looks like the early stages of what happened to us and others in Nazi Germany.

ICE and CBP can’t do their evil work alone. They rely on the greed of corporations who see our immigrant neighbors living in fear & living in cages, and see dollar signs instead of human beings.

It’s up to us to make it stop: #NoBusinessWithICE!

New #Arizona FBI memo to LEOs references IGD articles + alleges "anarchists extremists" within the #AbolishICE movement pose a "lethal threat" while amplifying conspiracy theory that protesters are buying weapons from cartels to engage in violence. Thread.…
Today we were quoted in an article by @hunterw who reported on an FBI memo out of the Phoenix offices that argues that "anarchists extremists" are a "lethal threat." This memo was sent out to law enforcement around the country.…
@hunterw "Almost all of the the report involved nonviolent protest activity. The intelligence collected, dated May 2019, is worrisome to activists + civil rights advocates who say that the government is classifying legitimate government terrorism."

Tonight I’m watching @IlhanMN lead a conversation around immigration - on detention, deportation, and the crisis on the southern border. It’s the conclusion of a full day of discussion.
“There is no good way to detain immigrants,” @IlhanMN says, describing a visit to MN’s largest immigrant detention center.
I’m not at a good angle. But here’s a visual of the congresswoman and her security Ilhan Omar in orange and a big dude in a dark suit behind (he’s security)

2. Challenge the propaganda and framing of the story.

3, Raise awareness beyond the initial small circle.

Trump and his administration just announced plans to roll out a new rule that would allow them to detain undocumented children and their parents for an INDEFINITE amount of time in concentration camps. This is an act of white supremacy.…
The new rule seeks to replace a 1997 court settlement known as the Flores Agreement.

This is just another tactic from white supremacists to open doors that allow them to hurt more Black and brown immigrant communities. #CloseTheCamps #LetOurPeopleGo
Children and adults are already dying at the hands of ICE and CBP in these concentration camps. We talk about it all the time, yet these are only the deaths that we know about. These agencies have a record of hiding deaths from the public eye. #CloseTheCamps

Where do children separated from parents, or detained without them at the border go? In #Chicago, journalists at @propublica + community organizers exposed a network of child prisons. Now, we're publishing testimony from a former staff member. #AbolishICE…
@propublica “Majority of these children have communities and family members trying desperately to reunite with them, but the US government has found a way to sabotage their efforts and detain then unnecessarily, and I can tell you exactly why and how.”
@propublica “Most of the children I spoke with told me their journey was their only way to reunite with parents or family members who had already crossed into the US. The parents told stories of fleeing poverty, hunger, violence or other forms of instability..."

#ThisIsAmerica: In this mega-episode, we cover #AbolishICE resistance, @BVWkrUnion strike, riot against police in Mexico, antifascist soccer fans push back, hunger strikes and resistance in ICE detention facilities, updates on @minerblockade and much more!…
@BVWkrUnion @minerblockade We also speak to an anarchist collective in #NewLondon #Connecticut who are growing a food forest on land left to rot, after a corporate eminent domain land grab collapsed. We talk about the history of the neighborhood + its anarchist roots, and how people are getting involved.
@BVWkrUnion @minerblockade We then speak to @PopMobPDX about how both the media and the #Portland police have worked to facilitate and support far-Right violence in the streets while also attempting to stop people from mobilizing to defend their communities.

This is my video. For a second I thought I was filming the next Heather Heyer moment. It was absolutely shocking and horrifying and I'm a bit shaken up. Fortunately it appears no one was seriously hurt #NeverAgainIsNow #NeverAgainIsNow #JewsAgainstICE
After the truck attack, the prison guard driving it just sat there and apparently called for backup, guards came out in very aggressive posture and started pepper spraying people
Several people ended up going to the hospital. Meanwhile the guards, including the driver of the vehicle, returned to the private prison where they are holding #ICE detainees. The police did nothing other than take witness statements. #NeverAgainIsNow

BREAKING: #JewsAgainstICE are assembling to shut down their local concentration camp in Houston, Texas.

Never Again is a promise, and it requires action.

#JewsAgainstICE and allies in Houston are blocking the road outside of the Southwest Key facility. We will continue disrupting business as usual until you #CloseTheCamps, #AbolishICE, and stop terrorizing our immigrant neighbors.

PS: This street is called Emancipation Avenue. 🤔
Police are already on the scene in Houston, where #JewsAgainstICE are risking arrest to demand a #DignityPlan for immigration.

We're participating in nonviolent, direct action because we can't accept these atrocities in our communities.
