Today we need to ask how anyone could defend Trump after all he's done! Clearly, Republicans would impeach a Democrat who did far less(see Bill Clinton)

#ResignTrump #ImpeachmentDay #impeachment
He's extorted Ukraine with taxpayer money!

#AdamSchiff is a national treasure! He lays out the case for the Constitution perfectly!
#ImpeachAndRemove Trump because he will do it again! Call the Senate every day! 202-224-3121 or Please Call Congress @ 202-224-3121 or text resist to 50409 to fax them.

We are outside the Chula Vista border patrol station with @Doc4CampClosure and @NeverAgainActn demanding to be let in to vaccinate the kids inside. #CloseTheCamps #FluVaccines4Migrants [Thread]
Despite the deaths of several children after becoming ill in immigration custody and the urgency of this public health crisis, the physicians’ offer to vaccinate the detained children for the flu has been repeatedly denied. 2/
The @CDCgov has called for the doctors to be let in and for the children to be vaccinated, but @CBP won’t let the doctors help. The decision to not vaccinate detained migrants is cruel and could lead to more unnecessary deaths. 3/

BREAKING: 300+ #JewsAgainstICE, immigrants, and allies are assembling in North Carolina to demand thay Almanece County cancel its 2.3 million dollar contract with ICE.

#AbolishICE
#CloseTheCamps
#NeverAgainAlmanece Large crowd of people standing outside facing a state, two large blue butterfly signs held above them
Today many of us has come here as Jews linked with our immigrant brethren. This is not an abstract sentiment. As we know too well the forces white supremacy are against them and against us.

The butterfly is a powerful symbol of immigrants.

It also calls to mind Pavel Friedmann's poem:

"Only I never saw another butterfly.
That butterfly was the last one.
Butterflies don't live in here, in the ghetto."

#Throwback to @childrightsprof & @juliemlinton's interview on @cnn with @donlemoncnn last month, where the conditions & impacts of migrant child detention were discussed. (thread)
Children being "put on buses in the middle of the night and being driven across state lines, to locations that were hours and hours away from where their parents were, having siblings dropped off at other locations...being just terrified"
"this administration is breaking the black letter law. The TVPRA clearly requires that children be placed in the least restrictive environment possible, in the child's best interest, and there is no question that [these facilities] are not in the children's best interest..."

Ok. This is gonna be the start of the mega-thread for the trip.

I start this thread with excitement, nervousness, humility, and with intention.

#JewishClergyattheBorder
We introduced ourselves and “invited” folks to join us spiritually. I brought #Pittsburgh’s religious leadership with me. My hope is that we can become motivated to engage deeper in this work, starting with myself.
Next, we continued with stories from the border and a broad overview of some of the legal situations here. #Metering, #MPP (Migrant Protection Protocol), and the situation with #MexicanRefugees. More on that as we get our legal briefing later tonight.

As the administration continues forcibly separating migrant children from their families, the administration is looking to build a new facility to detain 450 unaccompanied children in San Antonio, Texas. #CloseTheCamps #NeverAgainIsNow fbo.gov/index?s=opport…
Folks, YOUR VOICE MATTERS HERE!

When I sounded the alarm about a similar attempt to build another #ConcentrationCamp for kids in CA's Inland Empire, the mobilization effort & huge push back prompted a public statement from a state rep & forced the gov't to ABANDON ITS PLAN.
If you know people in the area, start tagging! A couple people is all it takes to kickstart a pushback from the #resistance

A thread on how 45’s immigration policy, developed under Stephen Miller, parallels treatment of Jewish people in Nazi Germany.

We will refer to the Wikipedia entry on immigration policy in Germany from 1933-1940 /1 #resist tinyurl.com/yxafpbox
“Discrimination against Jews began immediately after the national seizure of power in 1933.”

Trump signed the Muslim ban into effect within days of being sworn into office /2 #resist #racism tinyurl.com/y4vkfry3 #racism #resist
“The Nazi Party used populist antisemitic views to gain votes.”

Leading to and after the 2016 election, Trump supporters adopt garish red hats to signal support of Islamophobic/white supremacist policy /3 #resist

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.
1/
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

"EVERY SINGLE SEPARATED KID HAS BEEN TERRIFIED. We're [seen as] the enemy." — HHS OIG ()

1/ This Awful Thread begins May 2019.

By design, EVERY President* Trump immigration and border policy has one point: CRUELTY.

We begin with #TrumpConcentrationCamps.
2/ May 2019:

Huge soft-sided structures — tents erected in the Texas desert at El Paso and Donna Border Stations — cost U.S. taxpayers $37 MILLION to house 500 people PER TENT.

The United States Concentration Camp System is officially open for business!

3/ May 1, 2019:

In two locations along our Southern Border, CBP is so convinced that immigrants use children to smuggle ADULTS in, they test DNA of all families that “don't seem right” to them.

Any family that refuses... LOSES CUSTODY OF THEIR CHILDREN.

1/ When an outbreak of influenza hits your country, tripling cases from a year before, do you…

🚨 Vaccinate everyone, or…

🚨 Gather people from many countries into crowded spaces, deprive them of food and clean water, refuse to vaccinate them, and let nature take its course?
2/ There's a BIG SURGE IN FLU CASES in 2019.

Australia expanded its vaccine program to fight the virus.

President* Trump REFUSES to vaccinate people in #TrumpConcentrationCamps.

Barbed wire cannot contain influenza so MANY AMERICANS WILL GET SICK, TOO.

3/ Flu complications killed 80,000 people in 2018 in the USA.

President* Trump does not need gas chambers to commit genocide in his concentration camps.

He can just keep families in cages INDEFINITELY, and let influenza go viral.

This flu chart uptick for 2019 is HORRIFYING:

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.
buzzfeednews.com/article/adolfo…
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

This brave #Uyghur #Muslim girl, still resides in #Xinjiang aka #EastTurkestan is indicating that four of her relatives are in #China's #ConcentrationCamps. She obviously wants the world to know regardless of what might happen to her, PLEASE SHARE for her sake.

#CloseTheCamps
Clip 2: There are more "witness testimonials" coming right out of #Xinjiang aka #EastTurkestan. They don’t saying anything but it's written all over their faces, clearly sending a message to the outside world that all is not good.

Today, nearly 100 of us gathered in the middle of a workday to shut down @PalantirTech Palo Alto. Palantir's collaboration w/ ICE enables HSI workplace raids like the one that stole 700 migrants last week. PT employees cannot eat lunch in peace while their products terrorize.
@PalantirTech @ConMijente @MPower_Change @AROCBayArea @ShahidForChange @OaklandPrivacy @4aPeoplesParty @NeverAgainActn @JFREJNYC @SIREN_BayArea @svdebug @PalantirTech claims their collaboration w/ ICE doesn't enable deportations, but we know they supply tech for workplace raids that deport families & migrants seeking asylum. This tech isn’t about public safety or national security. This cruelty is meant to terrorize. #DisarmICE

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

Never Again is a promise, and it requires action.

#CloseTheCamps
#AbolishICE
#NeverAgainIsNow
#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.

Today, on Tisha B’Av, #JewsAgainstICE are taking action to say #NeverAgainIsNOW. Tisha B’Av is a Jewish day of mourning, and today we mourn for the people rounded up, torn from their families, thrown in cages, and deported by ICE.
We are turning our grief into action and taking to the streets to demand that tech companies stop enabling the deportation machine terrorizing immigrant communities, separating families, and putting children in cages.

#JewsAgainstICE #NoTech4ICE #NeverAgainIsNow #ClosetheCamps
We are at @amazon's store because @AWSCloud is vital to ICE’s cruelty.

Without Amazon, ICE cannot round immigrants up to imprison them in concentration camps or deport them. #JewsAgainstICE will not stay silent while tech companies profit off of cruelty.

So what's with the depressing pictures?
Welcome, yeah, it's a thing. I'm painting a new quote from a person detained at the border each day until this nightmare ends. Come join me. What can you do if you agree this sucks? (From easiest to hardest):
1. Follow me and share them. None of this matters if it doesn't help people get informed and stay focused. The more places this shows up on the internet the better. They're counting on us losing focus. Don't lose focus.
2. Call the white house, your reps, write to them, drive them crazy so it's clear that we have not forgotten, and they won't be excused for their inaction. People are literally dying because this administration refuses to accept legal asylum seekers and release them to family

Tisha B’Av, the day of mourning marking the destruction of the Temple—as well as other massacres, pogroms, expulsions, devastations—begins this Saturday night.

It’s a time to grieve into the horror of what has happened. The horror of what is.

1/x Thread.
The night of Tisha B’Av we read the Book of Lamentations; it’s devastating. It forces you to face the atrocities wreaked upon a people—starvation and murder and desperation and assault—and, achingly, in ch 3, this suffering through a first person lens.
It is a time to weep and mourn, to stick your finger in the proverbial socket of suffering—the suffering that has been, the suffering that is now. The suffering we try so hard to avoid, to intellectualize, to compartmentalize, to scroll past.
