@secupp @secupp ... @IngrahamAngle correct

Illegal immigration out of control & must be stopped

LEGAL IMMIGRATION is out of control & needs to be SCALED BACK

What's the controversy?

Immigration ISN'T SACRED. Nobody has a right to come & we dont always need it

#ImmigrationIsAWeapon
@secupp @IngrahamAngle I have developed a concept for your reckless thinking @secupp

When immigration gets out of control or starts to harm the national interest, if not put in check, it will lead to invasion.

The Immigration Invasion Loop (iiL)
bit.ly/iiL-Str8Don
@secupp @IngrahamAngle @Avenge_mypeople @kausmickey @NumbersUSA @MarkSKrikorian @RoyBeck_NUSA @joelpollak @parscale @anntensity @RealTravisCook @CIS_org Invasion can be anything ranging from immigration without assimilation, to migrant armies storming the border with the intent to take over the country. Immigration can start as a good thing, but then become bad through reckless altruism.

You can’t make this s**t up @SenWarren @SenatorCarper @SenWhitehouse @SenBlumenthal are demanding an investigation from the Department of Defense IG into who’s toured Air Force One. These people are insane, what a horrific waste of resources. #VOTEDEMSOUT
WHAT do you think giving tours to campaign donors was for? You are a further embarrassment to the VA Committee Blumenthal the @DeptofDefense has better sh*t to do like defend the Country.
The whole damn world has had a tour of Air Force One?! THIS is what you worry about? OMG. ENOUGH.

As we wait for the @senjudiciary hearing to get started, see @immcouncil full statement for today's hearing on the Trump administration's separation of families →
@senjudiciary @immcouncil And we are underway with @ChuckGrassley making his opening statement, calls the family separations an "unintended consequence" of the "zero tolerenace" policy. Wow. That is just not true. Sessions when he announced the policy stated unapologetically that separations WOULD happen
.@ChuckGrassley says he is "disturbed" by the allegations that ICE officers coerced parents into signing away rights they did not understand, see more on this here

1/Wonky but important. Yesterday @USCIS released a policy memo which, in effect, appears to target individuals, families & employers applying for #immigration benefits, including citizenship, green cards & visa petitions uscis.gov/sites/default/…
@USCIS 2/Buried on Page 6 is a section entitled "Denials Based on Lack of Sufficient Initial Evidence". There the memo highlights 2 types of cases that can be denied without giving the applicant a chance to submit more evidence...
@USCIS 3/First, Waiver Applications: Most such apps are based on a showing of "extreme hardship" to a US spouse, parent or child if the applicant is deported fr or not permitted to be in the US.

Rant time.

Hey #Brexit people, or those who don't like #immigration, those who think that immigrants are #TakingOurJobs, I have words for you;

They're not. Those jobs were never going to be yours anyway.

Really want to know why they get all the great jobs and you don't?

#FBPE
Immigrants have guts. We're talking about people who pack up their lives and head to a completely new country. People who, the moment they step off the plane, know they have every pillar of security, whether welfare or mum's couch, knocked out from under them.
Immigrants have confidence. They know that, wherever they're going, they'll do well for themselves. Whatever job they're going to, they're going to knock it out of the park, whatever it might be. Because to an immigrant, their skill and ability is their security.

1) 💥BOMBSHELL: What was Barack Obama’s "The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009”, which established the Electronic Health Records (EHR) Incentive Program, all about? $$$ & Immigration. Pay attention...

2) So Obama created this stimulus package for physicians to buy this technology and make all health records electronic. But why? There was a big push for this. In fact, prominent venture capitalists jumped at this opportunity. #Immigration #SaveTheChildren #ChildTrafficking
3) In its economic recovery package, the Obama administration plans to spend $19 billion to accelerate the use of computerized medical records in doctors’ offices. #Immigration #ChildTrafficking #LockThemUp

🚨 MINI THREAD:

The outcomes of long term/indefinite detention of asylum seekers.

#FamiliesBelongTogether, but locking them up together long term leads to abuse, rape, self harm and prolific mental health issues.

The children below are on Nauru; they tried to reach Australia.
“Abuse, self-harm and neglect on Manus and Nauru: Senate Inquiry Report 2017”

The link below is a summary of the report above by the Refugee Council of Australia.
refugeecouncil.org.au/resources/publ…
Key takeaways from the report:

• Damaging living environment
• Uncertainty about the future
• Lack of approximate regulation
• Lack of transparency

Is this raising alarm bells yet? 🚨

#fbpe #citizenship #stopbrexit #immigration #children
These are not, as someone has complained: 'immigrats'flooding in, taking our benefits and driving down wages (sic). They work hard, have NEVER claimed a penny (tho lots of UK families in their street do...). They don't want to go home coz of the Hungarian Govt.
when you hear @sajidjavid going on about a 'compliant' attitude, etc, remember this. I am a pensioner, I earn little from my writing, but I BELIEVE children deserve to live in families. Not in cages. Not in deportation units.

Imagine a time when...

#Immigration reform is a political success, but a moral disaster.
Congress votes on a new Immigration Agency.
#POTUS uses immigration for political gain.

What if I tell you the year is 1872?

A History Thread for #IndependenceDay #4thofJuly2018
I was scanning through historic remarks to quote for a thing, when I found this line from President Grant: "I see no subject more national in its character than provision for the safety and welfare of the thousands who leave foreign lands to become citizens of this Republic."
That's from a letter #Grant sent to #Congress in 1872 on #ImmigrationReform (without using the precise term). No surprise he's today's hottest candidate for most under-rated President, right? He's, like, totes progressive.

Nope. Read on:

MEGA-THREAD.

There are three points in history that absolutely nothing to do with each other,..

Pickett’s Charge of 1863
Obama of 2008
Ocasio #NY14 of 2018

...and everything to do with each other

General Lee was brilliant….
but did you know his #2 guy George Pickett was a no-kidding genius?

What he was to Calvary, Patton was to Tanks.

And like Patton….Pickett finished Dead Last in his class at West Point.
Always getting into trouble.

At West Point, Pickett was a loser
Too much of a party guy and always getting into trouble.

But when he got into the field
and away from prying eyes of Captains and Generals, he was AMAZING.

Army was smart enough at least to send Pickett out West.

Yes, I’m an angry #Democrat.

We’re not a reasonable party anymore. We’ve exhausted ourselves with conspiracies & outrage while ignoring facts & careful analysis.

Then we have the audacity to complain about the fatigue of it all.

Let’s review the party’s madness. (1/11)
Since our #2016Election loss, we have flopped in every direction to find an excuse for our failure.

Blame the 63M deplorable Trump voters.

Blame the #ElectoralCollege.

Blame Comey.

Blame the Russians.

No. Stop it. Blame Clinton, the DNC, & her primary voters. They suck.
About those #Russians.

We have assured ourselves that Trump is a Russian traitor. We’ve held up the #SteeleDossier as proof.

Nevermind that CIA Director Brennan gave it “no particular credence.”

Rather than let Mueller find the facts, we’ve already executed POTUS for treason.

A beautiful woman who has sacrificed so much for this nation.

And yet I struggle to see how Jack or Bobby Kennedy would embrace immigration policies that didn’t insist on both compassion for illegals with a firm commitment to sending people home who broke our laws to get here.
Still, I understand the outrage. #Trump is giving illegals two choices:

1) Give up asylum claim, get your kids back, be deported immediately.

2) Claim asylum, stay jailed for 1+ yr, won’t see your kids.

Hell of a choice. latimes.com/politics/la-na…
The stop gap solution of putting these families on military bases is an appropriate step, one that Obama took as well.

So let us provide food, shelter, and an expedited trip home.

Our #immigration laws have to mean something. thehill.com/policy/defense…

I have been digging around to try to better explain what the Flores Settlement is all about.

Yesterday I stumbled across something that stopped me in my tracks.

#FamiliesBelongTogether /1
Jenny Lisette Flores, 15, fled civil war in El Salvador In 1985. When she was apprehended at the US-Mexico border she was held for months in an #immigration detention facility together with unrelated adults. /2

nbcnews.com/storyline/immi…
During litigation the government conceded that conditions were "deplorable." Kids were jailed together with unrelated adults in facilities ringed with barbed-wire. They had little to no education, recreation, or visitation. This lasted months or longer. /3 supreme.justia.com/cases/federal/…

This #thread is a bit wonky, so bear with me. It's important for people to understand that Trump's ugly vision of deportation without a judge or due process is not just another unhinged tweet. It’s part of the Trump plan & it could become reality tomorrow. Here’s why..
2/The #immigration law is already very harsh and provides for "expedited removal" through a unilateral decision made by a low level immigration officer without opportunity for the individual ordered deported to make his or her case before an immigration judge;
3/Specifically, the immigration law already gives a low level @CBP or @ICEgov bureaucrat unfettered power to order someone removed fr the US "without further hearing or review" unless the person indicates an intention to apply for asylum or a fear of persecution. INA 235(b)(1);

Happy #Pride
I was expelled from my all-girls high school for being a #lesbian & put in a mental hospital for #conversiontherapy.

I became an #LGBT activist to prevent that from happening to other girls like I was.
Yet conversion therapy is still legal.
Happy #Pride
I memorialize every #lesbian who died hidden in the shadows because of #homophobia, who was forced into compulsory heterosexuality, who was made to live a lie. You deserved better. We honor you by making a safer world for lesbians today. Amen.
🏳️‍🌈🖤❤️💜💙💚🧡💛
On #Pride I think of the #lesbian who became my mentor. She propelled me forward into lesbian #feminist writing. #AudreLorde opened a door for me I didn't know existed. I am so grateful she was in my life and left such a legacy for #lesbians.

1) A friend posted that he wanted facts to understand why these immigrants claim to be seeking asylum. Said he understood them to be coming to the U.S. seeking more opportunities. As a teacher of immigrants, I had facts to offer. Please read & RT #ImmigrantChildren #Immigration
2) Teens who make it across the border are literally carved up. Chunks of their bodies gone, knifed from their flesh, for refusing to join gangs. Gangs kill their siblings, to make clear they'll do it, then force a gun into kid's hand. "You kill this person, or we kill you."
3) Kid says no, gets chunk knifed out of their body, & gets told, "We'll be back to give you another chance to use this gun. Think hard." Kid doesn't want to kill; kid doesn't want to BE killed, so kid finds a way to get across the border & seek asylum.
