Is #HRC referring to the 7-11 stores? Does she giving code messages to Joe DePinto, President and CEO of @7eleven?

Holy Shit! Judge's Martinez dec in Ramirez Medina case is the most eloquent indictment of current immigration system: "Upon review, the Court is left with the uneasy feeling that the Govt did not honestly consider the facts of Mr. Ramirez’s case to arrive at a just conclusion."
..."Rather, it appears the Government considered only whether the facts supported its desired and preordained conclusion. This is not a just exercise of prosecutorial discretion. Yet the law as it stands precludes the courts from intervening and assuring equal justice under law."
" Until Congress has the courage to fully address our nation’s much needed immigration reform, there will continue to be cases like this in which courts are compelled to reach unjust, though legally correct, results."

We've filed a brief in the US Supreme Court as part of our ongoing lawsuit to protect #DACA.

Our lawsuit argues the Trump Admin's attempt to revoke #DACA was based on faulty legal analysis & harmed State residents, institutions, and economies.
Our government made a promise to DREAMers that they would be able to live their lives free from the fear of sudden, arbitrary deportation.

We will not allow the Trump Admin to continue this cruel crusade against these invaluable members of our society.
Hemos presentado un escrito réplica en la Corte Suprema, en nuestra demanda por proteger a #DACA.

Alegamos que los planes de Trump de revocar DACA se basa en un análisis ilegal defectuoso, y perjudica a residentes, instituciones, y a los sistemas económicos de los Estados.

And here are statements from my partner Theodore B. Olson of @gibsondunn and our co-counsel DACA recipient @LCortesRomero, with text of the statements in the rest of the thread below.… 2/7
Theodore Olson: “Before the government can terminate DACA, the public deserves—and the law requires—that the government explain its decision clearly and truthfully. Instead, the government claims that DACA is unlawful, even though it is consistent with seventy years. . . . 3/7

"We love immigrants, as long as they do it the right way!"

Trump ended #TPS for #ElSalvador on 9/9/19. Extension was granted to 1/20/20--but #TPSElSalvador holders have no proof of this beyond USCIS website, and it's causing all kinds of chaos around here. Cruelty upon cruelty.
So, so tired of hearing #MAGA nation scream at my clients to do things "the right way" as they gleefully watch this administration rip up the very few options they may have had left.
To be clear, #TPS recipients are still in lawful immigration status for the next few months... but a substantial number of them don't actually know that and are now unnecessarily terrified that they are undocumented. Also seeing them (wrongfully) lose jobs, cancel intl travel

1/ AG Barr has an op-ed in the WSJ today about nationwide injunctions with some *extremely* revisionist history, to put it kindly, about Trump and #DACA. Let's take a stroll down memory lane.…
2/ Barr claims that the nationwide injunction entered by a federal court in CA on January 9, 2018 "proved catastrophic" to efforts to find "a political compromise" on #DACA. The injunction (and similar orders from courts in DC and NY) required DHS to continue processing renewals.
3/ First of all, this a crisis entirely of Trump's own making. Then-AG Sessions and the Texas AG cooked up the mere threat of litigation over #DACA, which has never been found unlawful or unconstitutional, as a pretext for ending the program on 9/5/17.

Good morning Mr President.❤️🇺🇸 I'm glad Chrisopher Hajec has articulated and framed this issue properly. #DACA was unconstitutional to begin with ~ Obama SAID it was.
Oh, and the replies Mr President are all attacking Mr Hajec, so you know it's a well founded and principled:…
Yes, Obama tried to get legislation passed beginning in 2010 and blamed a democrat run Congress for NOT putting forward legislation he wanted..

Today, two years ago, President Trump decided to end #DACA. Since then, nothing has changed. So here's a VERY vulnerable thread.

I am a beneficiary of DACA. America is the only country I've ever known, I feel immensely patriotic and grateful to have had the opportunity
to live and grow here, and to meet all the wonderful people I've known.

Hearing that the President was planning on ending DACA broke my heart. Without it, I wouldn't have been able to get my driver's license, have my social security number, or work the best job I've ever had.
... or any job. I pay taxes like a citizen, follow the law, work, and am doing my best to be as educated as possible. It'll be a long time before I ever get the opportunity to apply for citizenship, or even permanent residency. Now, it'll probably be even longer.

Today is the 7th Anniversary of the Implementation of #DACA — here is HOW I got to August 15, 2015, to see my life COMPLETELY transformed overnight.

The story begins in 2007, I was a high school senior ready to graduate and ready to go @UCF!

Here's an awk photo of me.
SPRING 2007: I receive a call from an @UCF admissions officer. They told me that my application was missing a Green Card, and that they would be unable to give me in-state tuition w/ot it.

Confused, I asked my mom for a copy of the document — not knowing I didn't have one.
My mother froze and drove me to @FIU to ask if I would go to college. An admissions officer told her that w/o a Green Card, my family wouldve to pay 3X the amount of in-state tuition.

My mother was CRUSHED. I lied and said everything would be OK. It wouldnt be.

Today, seven years ago USCIS began accepting #DACA applications. When President Obama announced the program in 2012, I was hesitant to apply, but I knew it was the culmination of years of struggle, agony, organizing, empowerment, and passion thanks to undocumented youth.
In 2010, the DREAM Act was being considered. My family wasn’t in tune with politics, but we knew the Dream Act could change my life. My mom told me that if I studied hard I could one day be a citizen thanks to the courage of undocumented activists. But it failed in the senate.
In 2012, President Obama said that #DACA "is not a path to citizenship. It's not a permanent fix. This is a temporary stopgap measure that lets us focus our resources wisely while giving a degree of relief and hope to talented, driven, patriotic young people."

Good evening! I will begin live-tweeting the #DemDebate2020 at 9PM ET for @CourthouseNews but in the meantime, let's go over some policy points for each of tonight's contenders.
Tonight’s candidates on the debate stage are: @JoeBiden, @BernieSanders, @KamalaHarris, @PeteButtigieg, @MichaelBennet, @SenGillibrand (Kirsten Gillibrand), John @Hickenlooper, @ericswalwell, @Marwilliamson (Marianne Williamson) and @Andrew Yang.
But first, we'll revisit rules quickly: recall, candidates have 60 seconds to respond, 30 seconds for follow-ups. There will be no opening remarks to save time but closing remarks will be delivered by each.

I hope everyone is paying more attention to the health of our democracy in this administration. Today's 2 decisions from the #SupremeCourt have one thing in common: the fight to erase minority communities' political power will continue.
In Dept of Commerce v NY, #SCOTUS kept the #citizenship question on #Census2020 barred, for now.

In Rucho v. Common Cause, SCOTUS threw up its hands and said it couldn't decide partisan gerrymandering cases - allowing the devious process to continue.
The Sec of Commerce (who heads @uscensusbureau) thought it was worth the risk to not count immigrants fearful of responding to a #censuscitizenship question.

The Court, of course, didn't think much of any of his stated justifications, finding them "contrived" and pretextual.

Anyone living along the border could have told them this. Obama Executive Ordered the unConstitutional #DACA legislation, in 2014. Before that the immigration yearly cap was 700K. We immediately absorbed 850K PLUS the yearly cap, & added #Illegals on top of that. We can’t do this
2/ Just like Peak Oil fears, we have reached Peak Immigration with the Caravans. The entire system is overloaded & CA tent cities is proof no one has a plan. More taxes on hardworking American will not fix this. Deportation is the only solution. 22M would take less than 3 months,
3/ given 85% come from #Mexico & South America. Others can be evicted via transport planes, heavy lifters, cargo planes, cargo ships, aircraft carriers, tankers, & container ships. All 22M gone. Including cleaning up the states where Obama stashed #Muslims

Wow, 7 years.

7 years ago, I remember sitting down by myself in my living room.

I listened as the requirements for #DACA were announced.

Little did I know how my life would change. 1/
To qualify for #DACA my undocumented self needed to find documents that documented my life in the US.

I went to the hospital I had gone to since I was a little girl & asked for my entire medical record. I remember the receptionist’s face when I told her I needed a copy ASAP. 2/
I went to my elementary, middle and high schools, looked through hundreds of photos, documents—everything to prove I have been living in the US since I was 2yrs old.

Fast forward to the day I received my work authorization card. Wow, my first official US gov document. #DACA 3/

I’ve observed Colorado @SenCoryGardner since his election. What I’ve seen has left me dismayed. Rather than building bipartisan bridges to get things done, Cory became a supine Trump yes-man. There are 1000s reasons he shouldn’t be re-elected. Here are 101: #VoteCoryOut #COsen
#1: Even though he was elected by the narrowest of margins in 2014 in a state that has since voted for Hillary in 2016 & a democratic state govt trifecta in 2018, Cory continues to act as if he has a mandate from the white nationalist alt-right. #VoteCoryOut #cosen
#2: Cory Gardner has consistently voted for the extreme Trump agenda. During the 2019-2020 Congress, he’s voted with Trump over 90% of the time. During Trump’s 1st two years, Cory’s voting record was over 95% in line with Trump. #VoteCoryOut #cosen

1/ #StephenMiller has given an exclusive interview to Tucker Carlson's dumbass website for angry white supremacists, because of course he has. I've clicked on it so you don't have to, and here's all you need to know.
2/ Just to get this out up front: Stephen Miller is a 33-yr-old swamp monster whose only major pre-Trump CV item was as press sec for Sen. #JeffSessions. He is not a lawyer & has no serious understanding of imm. policy. His career has been built on bullying & white supremacy.
3/ We now know (as I suspected at the time) that Miller & Steve Bannon pulled a series of all-nighters writing the disastrous first #muslimban--without consulting any lawyers, let alone anyone from the agencies which would be responsible for it. Keep that in mind as we proceed.

As recent DOS numbers preview, this reg could usher in BIG, BIG changes.
A ruling on the #RemaininMexico (#MPP) preliminary injunction.

A hearing in Innovation Law Lab v. Nielsen happened Friday. The ruling could come out any day now.…
