With #Biden opening up a double-digit lead over Trump, can someone tell me why Democrats refuse to embrace popular progressive policies like #MedicareForAll that help THE PEOPLE?

With #PoliceBrutality a scourge across the nation, can someone tell me why Democrats are still giving Trump expanded surveillance powers?

With thugs like #Barr trashing the Constitution and covering for Trump, can someone tell me why Democrats refuse to #ImpeachBarr?

As@desperation mounts over #COVID19, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), which controls the largest immigration detention system in the world, is refusing to release detainees.

Three unaccompanied migrant children in #ICE detention have tested positive for #COVID19…
"We are very scared...We know we can die inside here. The situation does not bode well for us. We don't have a way to protect ourselves."

Lawyers believe their clients are sitting ducks in crowded detention centers long plagued by reports of poor hygiene & subpar medical care.

1/ BREAKING: 51 #ICE detainees in the Bristol county jail have just jointly signed a letter detailing the circumstances of their detention and their fears of #covid19 while trapped in unsafe, unsanitary, unfit conditions.

They must be heard.

#FreeThemAll #mapoli
2/ Even during this crisis attorney Ira Alkalay is still doing incredible work on behalf of detainees in Bristol, who can still meet with him behind glass. He was given this letter (already sent to authorities) this morning.

It is, to say the least, alarming.
3/ The sheer inhumanity at work in this paragraph caught my breath.

Just sit with it for a few seconds before you keep reading.

Unicorn Riot has published a continuing series of leaked documents from #ICE's Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) unit, which both conducts traditional law enforcement activity & assists ICE's Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) wing which detains immigrants
#Icebreaker pt 1: the denaturalization handbook which guides HSI policy in targeting and stripping citizenship from naturalized foreign-born Americans. This little known practice has been expanded significantly during the Trump Administration…… Icebreaker Pt 2 – Confidential Homeland Security Asset Forfeiture and Search and Seizure Handbooks.

THREAD: Yesterday, a federal judge ruled that the US gov is legally responsible for the #MentalHealth trauma that Trump’s #FamilySeparation policy inflicted on thousands of migrant families at the US/Mexico border.… (1/9)
This groundbreaking ruling recognizes that the Trump Admin knowingly put families in danger & is obligated to provide a solution. #MentalHealth svcs are a step on the path to healing for kids & parents who were torn apart simply for seeking safety. #FamiliesBelongTogether (2/9)
It’s also critical that we don’t forget the millions of children--the vast majority of whom are US citizens--who are increasingly vulnerable to or have already been separated from their parents due to ICE enforcement in our own communities. #FamiliesBelongTogether #NoRaids (3/9)

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
“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 #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

Excited to share that our #GHB paper is now out in @AddictionJrnl.
With @RoseCrossin @foruharmoayeri @DebbieScott16 and team @TurningPointAU @MonashAddiction
Trends in GHB‐related harms 2012‐2018 in Victoria
Spoiler alert, 147% rise
Highlights here->
What we did: looked at ambulance callouts for #GHB alone vs for co-use w other drugs (eg. #methamphetamine, #alcohol)
What we found: Overall #GHB presentations increased 147%, peaking in 2017 at 1339 callouts. This increase was largely driven by #GHB+#methamphetamine use together
#methamphetamine #ice co-use was >6x more likely to result in ambulance callouts than co-use with other drugs e.g. alcohol; and more #mentalhealth symptoms e.g. psychosis or anxiety.

I hope black people are listening to this. The city of Chicago is more concerned with protecting illegal aliens committing crimes than black safety. Let a black person commit a crime the mayor would run to turn them in. #IllegalAliens #ICE
Black lives only matter when it’s election time or offering time for the liberal preacher.
Once again Chicago's top spot is occupied by corruption.

Breaking #ICE news: After holding a trial, federal judge in Los Angeles rules that ICE cannot rely on patchwork of federal databases to detain people held in state and local custody, invalidating the single biggest method that ICE uses to detain people across the country.
Judge also rules that ICE cannot issue so-called "detainers" - requests to state/local jailers to hold people for ICE to pick up - in states that don't explicitly authorize their employees to cooperate with ICE. That means detainers are invalid in states like CA and NY.
For a write-up on the case that explains the issues, see @joelrubin article from the @latimes:…

BREAKING: After Committee inspections of #DHS immigration facilities found serious problems, #DHS abruptly blocked further staff visits.

@RepCummings requests #DHS provide meaningful access to the identified #ICE and #CBP facilities.…
@RepCummings .#DHS testified at an @OversightDems hearing that they welcomed the Committee to visit immigration facilities and would engage in a dialogue about “improving the standards that exist.”

Last week, Committee staff conducted bipartisan site inspections of these facilities.
@RepCummings At #CBP facilities, Democratic and Republican staff heard many serious allegations.

Detainees expressed that toddlers—and even one infant—were being fed burritos rather than age-appropriate food and parents were not given a sufficient number of diapers for their children.

Immigration lawyer hoaxing and grifting
Just for fun let's assume his client is real and that his client is telling the truth.
We have to assume because there is no proof of either.
More than likely it is just a well crafted series of tweets that tug on liberal heart strings to make money.

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

Meet Stephanie (18)and her sister Ingrid(3). Their Dad and Aunt were taken right in front of Ingrid, who was sitting in the back seat of the car. She sat outside the car for two hrs until a friend could pick her up. Stephanie says Ingrid keeps asking “where’s Daddy?” #ICEraidsMS

US Atty Mike Hurst says ICE swept up 680 people across 6 MS cities today. ICE officers stormed facilities where workers were trying to make a living for their families & carried them off in buses.

He claims it's about "enforcing the rule of law...throughout our great country."
From the release: "Family members of those detained can call ICE’s toll-free detainee locator hotline for
information about an individual’s detention location & status, as well as info about the
removal process. The phone number is 1-888-351-
4024." (Eng+Spanish hotline)
The immigrants whom ICE detained are being sent to a prison camp in Jena, Louisiana. #MSIceRaids #ICE
