🧵#FBA tweets are purposely written in terms of conflict & competition. The white replacement framing isn't accidental. Theyre fixated on points of Black 🇺🇲/ Black 🇺🇲immigrant tension? Each tweet searchs for a conflict storyline with the diaspora.

Never with white immigrants..
White conservative anti-immigrant groups intent on driving a wedge between the "diaspora.” are paying #FBA #FREEDMEN #ADOS influencers to manipulate the Black American social media users. Steve Bannon admits the goal has always been to split the vote & drive up Dem unfavorables.
Racists have always used Blacks when influencing African American public opinion. Twitter is the perfect aggregator and carnival mirror. Let's look at the dual purpose of Marcel Dixon for Congress served as a tether for White Supremacy, but also a litmus test to see if

Excited to release our latest @BU_Law #immigrants' rights & human trafficking #clinic report on the Institutional Hearing Program ("IHP"), a little known program that quickly, and quietly, #deports noncitizens convicted of crimes. THREAD 1/

bu.edu/law/files/2022…
For more than 40 years, IHP has been operating in the shadows, yet another branch of the vast #ICE #enforcement regime. IHP operates at least across 19 states, #deporting noncitizens who are unlikely to be represented by counsel. 2/
Our report is a snapshot of how this little studied program operates to swiftly deport #immigrants across New England. Here's some of what we found. 3/

The Nigerian Exodus: An Idealized Vision Of Life Abroad

According to a report published in 2021 by the Africa Polling Institute: “Seven out of 10 Nigerians are willing to leave their country for #Europe if given the opportunity.” Image
Nigerians constitute one of the largest populations among #immigrants traveling from countries of the Global South to Europe.

An “imagined West” is often at the heart of the immigration plan. Respondents generally believed that those who had immigrated enjoyed a better life. Image
“Those who migrate to Europe live far better than we do in #Nigeria. They have constant power supply, better weather, eat a good diet, free doctors, and are relatively safe,” said a 29-year-old Nigerian woman.

かの名作のドキュメンタリーを最近よく観る。コッポラ、パチーノのインタビューが面白い。パチーノはほとんどクビにされかかっていたらしい。監督のコッポラだけがマイケル・コルレオーネ役には彼しかいないと信じてくれたのだと。そのあとは歴史が教えてくれる。
コッポラにもパチーノにも拍手。
フレドー。わかるかな。ソニーとマイケルの間に挟まれてる次男。ジョン・カゼイルって役者が演じてる。ディア・ハンターとか狼たちの午後とかでもすごくいい味出してる。盟友のパチーノ曰く、ジョンのあだ名は「百万個の質問をする俳優」だそうだ。そうやって役を深めてあの名演を生み出した。

1. TONIGHT on the @PBS @NewsHour: Imagine working 48 years to build a career as a top doctor only to be forced to give it all up in hopes to move to another country (where you are unqualified to practice) just so your daughters can get educated? #Afghanistan #Afghanwomen #pbsnews Image
2. That's the choice many professionals in #Afghanistan have to make right now. In 2019 we at @NewsHour profiled the incredible Dr Shefajo, a top gynecologist. "My daughters want to be doctors," she told me then. Now, her eldest is not even allowed in school as per #Taliban rules Image
3. Forced to choose between staying in #Afghanistan where her patients and the hospital she built from scratch are, and getting her older daughter into a classroom where she belongs, the Dr risks leaving everything behind to become unemployable abroad. Image

After 4 years of constant struggle, last week, my wife and I became US permanent residents. The #immigration process emotionally exhausted us. We both came to the US 9 years back, are @MIT graduates and economically privileged. Still, the process made us feel small and desperate.
Overall, the lawyer fees and applications costed us ~$15,000. The documents submitted to USCIS amounted to more than 1,000 pages. My total exchanges with attorneys over the 4 years amount to more than 103,000 words (yes, it is a 6-figure number, I checked it).
I personally spent probably ~400 hours to complete the paperwork over the years. Spread over 4 years, this may not sound like a lot, but this does not include the time spent worrying about the results, worrying about changes to USCIS rules, checking case updates.

How the European Union puts borders before lives. Refugees are the ones in need of protection, not EU’s borders. A thread on what you need to know about EU migration, their externalized borders, and overall complacency in upholding border imperialism #MigrationKorbelDU #Migration Image
Rhetoric in the news and media portrays #immigrants as a security threat, using words like “illegal” and “alien”. Harsh rhetoric has continued since the 2015 influx of migrants. Attitudes towards migrants and the security threat label is used as a justification for funding.
European Border and Coast Guard Agency @Frontex is the EU agency responsible for border control of the Schengen area. Funding for Frontex has raised from €143 million in 2015 to €543 million in 2021. Frontex has failed to protect the rights of migrants.

Worth the read, when in overseas career, US is not the destination as it has shot at his own feet.. Its Canada and UK .. Surprisingly Japan is inviting lot of #immigrants

Hong Kong is lost.. Singapore has become restrictive.. So also Australia too with pandemic.. Well NZ remain the prefered destination . Breaking the langauge barrier, Scandivanians is the finest destination . Go in a planned way
For business foray understanding the socio cultural adaptability. Russia and China are at the lowest ebb. Middle East is the reluctant choice where social life is not existent and Dubai is just affluence ..

The Arab-American Role in Demanding African American Autonomy.

"The problem often lies in the failure to understand both the historical and the institutional dimensions of marginalization that African Americans have experienced."
"African American struggles in the United States could not be simply limited to how the US economy was entirely built on the shoulders of a people who were instantly turned into [racial] slaves and were accordingly deprived their history, culture, and ability to exercise ...

Announcement from @fordnation sank my heart today. As an ER doctor, person of color and #Scarborough native, I feel defeated 😢. The measures are not going to get wave 3 under control. #BIPOC #ERdoc @SHNcares @torontolife @JustinTrudeau @SCMirror 1/
When I landed as an #immigrant in #Canada, my life started in #Scarborough. My parents (#heros) struggled to find jobs that matched their education. That didn't stop them from working hard / hustling even if it meant 2 jobs at times to keep bills paid and food on the table. 2/
My family lived in an apt building that had mostly racialized/middle-low income families (#affordability). Not much social distancing when large crowds wait for elevators (#EssentialWorkers) or use the shared laundry facilities. This pandemic brings back those vivid memories 3/

thrilled to be publishing "Public Health and the Power to Exclude: Immigrant Expulsions at the Border" with @gulcimmigration & the wonderful @prashasti_b. this piece argues for an end to #Title42, an illegal policy destroying families, and endangering #refugees at the #border. 1/
My piece beings by examining the historic intersections of public health and #immigration law, and the origins of federal quarantine and exclusion power. 2/
Woven into the article are first hand accounts of advocates on both sides of the #border who have witnessed the devastating impact of COVID-19 era immigrant expulsions as #immigrants, children and families are disappeared by the US gov't. 3/

No IELTS To Canada Guide

You won’t be wrong to assume that any sane Nigerian wants to move out to a better country based on the current economic, financial, and overall wellbeing of the citizens.

Yesterday as I was coming back from my family home,
I went to buy Garri for my fisherman’s soup I had prepared.

Pulling N1,000 to give the seller, behind me was an old woman of about 85 years or more untying her handkerchief and bringing out N100 for how many cups of Garri?
Answer – one.

Now, how do you explain the fact that a cup of Garri moved from 3 cups to 1 cup? How do these kinds of mothers survive?

At a point, I started being enraged because the matter was all over my head, but I had to tame my emotions and said to myself,

~thread~
1. St Frances Xavier Cabrini was born into a farming family in Lombardy, Italy, in 1850. She was attracted to a missionary life from an early age and founded the Institute

#StFrancesCabrini #Christian #missionary Image
2. of the Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart of Jesus in Codogno in 1880. Her original missionary dream was to go to China but historical circumstances prevented this. Pope Leo XIII directed her to the United States, where millions of Italians were arriving in search of work

Over the next 30 years she established 67 foundations in Europe, the United States and Central and South America. This included schools, hospitals, orphanages and social centres. She established a school in Honor Oak, South London.

A long thread about #immigration and #FreedomOfMovement in the light of the #Covid #vaccine.

While the UK government is now apparently ecstatic with delight to be ending Freedom of Movement, I'm thinking of Albert Bourla, (Άλμπερτ Μπουρλά) a Greek scientist and veterinarian. 1/8
Albert Bourla has lived in four different countries, joined Pfizer in 1993, and has used EU #FreedomOfMovement.

Similarly, the Turkish parents of the CEO of Biontech Uğur Şahin came to Germany when that country opened up and welcomed foreign workers "Gastarbeiter". 2/8
Obviously, the vast majority of #immigrants are not going to design vaccines that potentially can bail us out of this #corona misery.
Still, what strikes me in success stories like these is how many successful immigrants or their parents weren't exceptional when they came. 3/8

An indomitable spirit

I had the privilege of meeting an incredible Pakistani yesterday. @sidraqasim is best known today as co-founder and COO of @WearAtoms , a leading footwear company she created with her husband Waqas. 1/n #persistence Image
Sidra was born and raised in Okara, Pakistan. When she finished high school she had to enroll in an all-boys college but not attend classes with other boys. Studying in seclusion was uncomfortable but she persisted. Image
When she got her first job in Lahore, it paid PKR 10,000 / month and that meant living in a hostel near Firdous Market where monthly rent was PKR 4,000. Living in a cramped hostel was uncomfortable but she persisted. Image

I took the day off yesterday. Today I learned that one of our #AsylumSeekers clients, a #translatina from El Salvador, was stabbed 14 times and nearly killed in an act of hate. My staff didn't tell me until today, because they knew I needed a day off. This is the job.
Hatred towards #immigrants and #transphobia, legitimized by our government leaders, makes the US a place where often times #AsylumSeekers don't find the safety they seek and desperately need.
If you're a black, LGBTQ, or Latinx immigrant, often times you experience racism, hatred, and violence in the US. The govt lies, calling you rapists and murderers, and making others believe your life matters less. That you can then be killed with impunity.
