Over 27,000 TPS holders in LA worked on the frontlines of the pandemic to keep our city running.

With TPS protections set to expire, we cannot wait to act. Today, I joined @Carecen_LA @TPS_Alliance to call on @POTUS to protect millions of #TPS holders who call our country home. ImageImageImageImage
Our country has a moral obligation to help people fleeing violence & persecution in other countries.

The Biden administration must redesignate TPS protections for recipients from El Salvador, Honduras, Nepal, Nicaragua, and Haiti. 2/4
I also urge the Administration to address the backlog of TPS designations for Black-majority countries — including Cameroon and Mauritania. 3/4

The #DreamAndPromiseAct passed 228-197, remarkably bipartisan. So did the #FarmWorkforceModernizationAct at 247-174.

On to the Senate.

Yes, I know the odds. But I'm not letting up the pressure and NEITHER SHOULD YOU.

We can make this happen.
Here's a summary of a detailed letter drafted by some of us working on exposing the white nationalism in our immigration policy - the so-called #TantonNetwork.

See my pinned tweet for more. Yes, it's that bad.
Yes, this will make it to the Hill.

In Sept 2019, alone with @Alyssa_Milano and @morethanmySLE we met with 17+ members of Congress, to let them know about the Tanton Network and explain how they had the immigration debate on lockdown.

I've watched some version of the #DREAMAct pass many times in the last 15 yrs, w/Lucy's hand always ready to pull away the football as Charlie Brown makes yet another run at it. But I keep watching.

Your ball @SenateDems

#DreamAndPromiseAct #HR6
#DREAMandPromise presents the first new major pathway to residency and citizenship in 25 yrs. It is a chance to reconsider everything we think we know about immigration to the US--especially the current criminal bars to admission--and I hope the Senate takes it up in that spirit
We urgently need to give #DACA and #TPS recipients a chance to stay in the only country most of them have ever really had any life in. But that doesn't mean we have to cut & paste current bars to admission, most of which tie to bad late-1900s drug & mass incarceration policy

We're on a press call! With @JoaquinCastrotx @SpeakerPelosi @SenSchumer @SenatorMenendez @SenatorDurbin @NydiaVelazquez, DACA recipient Luz Chavez Gonzales, TPS holder Elizabeth Valencia, on one year anniversary of #DreamandPromiseAct
@JoaquinCastrotx @SpeakerPelosi @SenSchumer @SenatorMenendez @SenatorDurbin @NydiaVelazquez .@JoaquinCastrotx: This is a manufactured crisis of cruelty. Congress does not need to wait for SCOTUS to determine the future of Dreamers. Their lives have been in limbo for too long. We must put pressure on Trump & Rs to do the right thing.
.@SpeakerPelosi: Millions of immigrants, including hundreds of thousands of DACA recipients, are risking heir lives on the front lines of the pandemic. They deserve our support. This moment highlights a need for justice in America, including justice for our immigrants.

#Grifters (projection)

Twitterbots: The IRA archive reveals a vast, coordinated propaganda campaign that was incredibly successful at pushing out & amplifying its divisive (incite conflict) Right/Left messaging.

The core group of main accounts consisted mainly of "fake news" sources masquerading as regional news outlets or political organizations

The propaganda was "evenly split" in its efforts to aim at the extremes of both sides of the liberal/conservative political divide.

Federal investigators to examine equipment from 2016 N.C. election amid renewed fears of Russian hacking

Hackers could not directly alter vote totals by breaching poll books.

But they could create substantial delays or even prevent voters from casting ballots.
