Just now in Morton, Mississippi: PH Foods callously fired 100+ workers less than a week after the raids, adding yet another brutal attack on the Latinx community. 1/
But our community is resilient and we will not stand for these attacks on our families. 2/
The community is organizing. We will not give into the sadistic attempt by the Trump administration to strike fear into our hearts. 3/

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

Yesterday, ICE arrested nearly 700 immigrants in a series of worksite raids across MS. Agents say the operation was being planned for months. But clearly they didn’t follow their own guidelines and make “plans” to reduce harm to kids. #ICEraids (1/10)
During worksite raids w/ 25+ workers, ICE agents are expected to identify & consider for release people who: are sole caregivers of children; have serious medical conditions; are pregnant or nursing; or are caretakers of disabled or seriously ill relatives. #ICEraids (2/10)
ICE is also expected to coordinate w/ state or local social service agencies to help identify people who qualify for humanitarian release. At minimum, ICE is supposed to notify the heads of state social service agencies that a worksite action is imminent. #ICEraids (3/10)

This is about to be a thread to educate a CEO about Border Patrol and why people want to #CloseTheCamps and why workers are saying #WeWontBeComplicit.
I'm GRATEFUL to the @ogilvy employees who, like the #WayfairWalkout, don't want to be part of what's happening at the border. The hashtag #dontlookaway is aimed at all of us. #NoTechForICE could also be #NoPRforTheCamps
After 3 weeks of press coverage detailing how @ogilvy recruits for the border patrol agency running the camps, @jseifert79, the CEO, told workers raising concerns that "I don’t have enough information to indict this [organization]."…

Dear Colleague on Resolution Responding to President Trump’s Xenophobic Statements

Dear Democratic Colleague,

On Sunday, it was a sign to us that the Catholic Gospel reading was that of the Good Samaritan, where Jesus teaches us to love our neighbors as ourselves and treat them with mercy.
Trump’s ICE raids this weekend are the opposite of mercy.  We have been monitoring these raids closely insisting that #FamiliesBelongTogether and that everyone #KnowYourRights.

I believe the kids and I am horrified. Stephen Miller must be fired for his immigration abuses. #DontLookAway…
Kids unable to sleep, or lay down because no room, overcrowding. No showers. No toothpaste. Concrete floor with no mats because the kids complained about chlorine-tasting water. A 15 yr young woman old groped by border guard, sexually assaulted in front of others. This MUST STOP.
Just a note of gratitude to @jacobsoboroff and @JuliaEAinsley for their intrepid reporting of infinite horrors committed by our government against refugee KIDS. #DontLookAway #FamiliesBelongTogether #ReuniteTheFamilies

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.

We are sent to Congress to lead, to legislate and to carry the stories and struggles of those we serve. More on why, with a heavy heart but clear eyes, I voted no last night → | #MA7 #CloseTheCamps
We should not be criminalizing and vilifying migrant families, especially children and our most vulnerable. #DefundHate #CloseTheCamps…
As the #ATeam mobilizes in #Boston in the name of transit #equity & #affordability, I'm in #ElPaso with the @HispanicCaucus & @HouseDemocrats meeting w/ activists & advocates ahead of touring @CBP facilitates and fighting for the humanity of our immigrant neighbors.

Pay their bail.

This can help reunite parents and children. #FamiliesBelongTogether

Read the whole article for info and orgs that can help you do that.…

Yes, cash bail is horrible and immoral and needs to be abolished in the criminal justice system as well as the immigration system.…
Yes, it is a sign of the absolute depravity of our country that we need the community to donate money in order to free people who are unjustly incarcerated in concentration camps.

Yes, we need to get everyone out of these camps.

The Dignity for Detained Immigrants Act was originally introduced in 2018, but HR 2415 is back in 2019, via @RepJayapal, @RepAdamSmith & in the Senate, @SenBooker has introduced S 1243.

Let's run down the particulars of the House bill!

#FamilySeparation #FamiliesBelongTogether
@RepJayapal @RepAdamSmith @SenBooker Text of the House Dignity for Detained Immigrants Act itself, HR 2415.

"To provide standards for facilities at which aliens in the custody of the Department of Homeland Security are detained, and for other purposes."

(sorry for the delay--some BP issues)…
@RepJayapal @RepAdamSmith @SenBooker HR 2415 has 8 sections, but 2 are basically "this is the bill's name" and "yep, that was the bill," so we'll look at the other 6.

Sec2 says DHS detention facilities need to adopt standards within a year of the bill's passage, no less strict than the ABA set forth in 2012.

Today marks one year since Trump’s cruel and inhumane Family Separation policy. Since then:
Almost 3,000 families *that we know of* have been ripped apart.
Dozens of parents have been deported without their children.

ATTENTION: An alarming new report indicates the Trump administration engaged in improper surveillance of last summer’s #FamiliesBelongTogether protests. 1/8…
Hundreds of thousands of Americans joined nearly 800 #FamiliesBelongTogether protests & exercised First Amendment rights to freedom of speech & assembly, lifted voices in solidarity with immigrant families, & rejected Trump admin’s family separation & detention policies. 2/8
These nationwide actions were an example of democracy at its best. The protests were peaceful, lawful, and posed no threat that merited such government surveillance. 3/8

I told y’all: Trump & his fellow Republican white supremacists are carrying out mass ethnic cleansing on American soil.

This is what Trump, Stephen Miller, and Kris Kobach plan for all brown & black folks. They won’t stop at refugees & immigrants.

Any one of us could be next.

Lives are in danger. Our humanity is at risk. The future of our country is in jeopardy.


There’s no coming back from this if We the People don’t stop it.

Where to even start

First, you’re not speaker any more

And your party’s “ideas” were so soundly rejected during the midterm elections that you lost an historic 40 seats

But let’s go a little deeper. Let’s look at Trump’s “accomplishments” and see if we are “better off”
With Trump and the GOP gutting the ACA and fighting Medicaid expansion, people who pay for healthcare are certainly #NotBetterOff

But healthcare and drug companies, and people that own them, sure are. Just ask your friend Chris Collins.…
The millions adversely affected by the #GOPTaxScam are #NotBetterOff

On the other hand, all the companies and wealthy CEOs who used the tax cut to buy back stocks and become richer were probably thrilled…

We’ve got clients in Karnes who’ve been there 20+ days & report poor conditions.

We will share #StoriesFromKarnes every day until they are released.

We ask you to share these stories and call on @ICEgov to release the families in Karnes without further delay.
Our first story is from a man who traveled here with his son.

In his words, he tells us how he got across the border and what happened when he was first detained by CBP.
“I left the shelter to see what was around and saw that the river was close by. I noticed that there was a group of people by the river... I crossed the border through the river, but the water only came up to my waist. I carried my son so that he wouldn’t get wet. “

Arma Global Services. They wear reversed flags on their sleeves; do military base support around the country, perhaps the world. Had 2 hire a lot of people 2 guard internal & external checkpoints, cruise roads in carts & trucks at the largest child migrant prison in the country.
Not much time for training it seems. Sometimes, all it takes to trigger a Keystone Cops flurry of activity is for a lone protestor with a sign to wander down a public road to wave at the children inside. Who often wave right back, by the way.
Golf carts scurry to the scene of the “crime.” Warnings are issued. Trucks pull up parallel so the drivers (the supervisors of the guards get to drive trucks) can consult. What are they consulting about?

Thousands of migrant children report they were sexually abused in US custody

"The allegations go back to the Obama administration." 😡😡…
Let's not forget... 400 Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC's) a DAY were crossing our southern border during @BarackObama administration and Joe Biden wasn't satisfied, he wanted MORE...…
More than 2 MILLION parents were deported, leaving behind children who ended up in the child welfare system and separated indefinitely.
