What is this BS about the DOJ not prosecuting ALL of the Capitol Insurrectionists? Because it'll clog up the system?
But Law Enforcement Agencies don't seem to have a problem with trying to lock up every black kid who smokes a joint!

But I didn't see the DOJ or Ice being worried that undocumented immigrants & refugees would strain the system. They just #SeparatedFamilies & put #KidsInCages

@Grumpa @bcnjsn @russianasshat @marypladsen @michael_david41 @dontlickchalk 1/6 Longtime immigrant rights activist here with links! Let's talk about why Liberal Democrats never do the #dontforgetaboutkidsincages thing when their team in charge. First, let's look at their policies for the past few decades. jacobinmag.com/2016/08/immigr…
@Grumpa @bcnjsn @russianasshat @marypladsen @michael_david41 @dontlickchalk 2/6 Next, let's remember that the practice of caging children started with Obama-Biden, who built and used the cages that Trump later greatly expanded upon. Links to sources on each image.
@Grumpa @bcnjsn @russianasshat @marypladsen @michael_david41 @dontlickchalk 3/6 Not only did the nativist Obama-Biden Administration lock migrant children in cages, but they subjected them to horrific conditions. #kidsincages inthesetimes.com/article/lockin…

LAPD rally today at the LAPD Academy— hello Proud Boy. LAPD breaks up #fight between a Proud Boy and BLM. Proud Boy assumes BLM is all fatherless and finds that hilarious (noted at the end of video)

#BlackLivesMatter #laprotest #losangeles #LosAngeles #BLM #lapd #WhiteSupremacy
Clearly Proud Boys are not “okay” with homosexuals. At LAPD rally today, Proud Body makes homophobic statement and tells me to go home because I’m a “little girl”

Same Proud Boy at LAPD rally today happily posing for the camera showing off his “PB” shirt and a white power hand gesture

an old saw from Mike Parson’s campaign:
random rural yard signs to

continue his post-Greitens reign.

National Guard, unlike Mike,
at this moment works hard
citizens to protect.
Parson’s lies we reject,
evidenced by his COVID scorecard.
Folks still ask: why no #MaskUp

I am not an immigration lawyer-never have been

Then why am I so passionate about this administration’s immigration policy

After all, it doesn’t affect me personally and it probably never will

Well, I’ll tell you

#ImmigrantsMatter

Trump called Mexicans “rapists”
 
Then sought a “total ban of Muslims”
 
This is how persecution starts
 
As a lawyer-as an American-I support the Constitution
 
If I stand by while people are oppressed because of their nationality or religion
 
Who will stand for me

#Immigrants
A week after he took office, it started
 
The Muslim Ban
 
I had to do something
 
So I went to JFK to help-even though I am not an immigration lawyer
 
I wound up going every day for a week, with many others
 
We had to defend those unjustly harmed

One year ago today, @RepBrianFitz of PA01 voted NO on a bill that would have provided safe and humane conditions for detainees, including children.

Elizabeth Warren’s SuperPAC has finally filed its disclosure. The vast majority of its money - $14.5 million - came from a single donor: Karla Jurvertson, a super-rich Silicon Valley funder who had previously donated to the DNC on behalf of Warren’s campaign.
The Warren campaigned had previously obtained a $100k donation to the DNC to allow it access to a valuable database, so it’s not as if @ewarren can credibly claim this SuperPAC donor - who donated almost $15 million in dark money - was some stranger:

The $14.5m Warren SuperPAC funder was long married to venture capitalist Stephen Juvertson, who made his fortune as an early investor in Elon Musk’s Tesla & SpaceX. Karla - the funder of the SuperPAC - is on the board of @emilyslist, caught working on anti-Sanders smears ads. 👍

Take a trip with me with gratitude and these are just some of the members of Congress I met with to #ProtectOurCare in 2019.

Ready? Let's take a trip around the country and give thanks for the Reps fighting for our #PreExistingConditions protections.(Thread)

1/
Before we begin this journey, I want to remember the late great Congressman Cummings.

He thanked me in July for taking my pain, turning it into a passion, to do my purpose. I will never forget those words, nor will I forget the Congressman. #RestInPower

Meeting Speaker Pelosi was truly a surreal experience.

One of the most compassionate people I've met on the Hill.

She has plenty of gratitude, grace, & is humble. She is also a fierce fighter.

Which goes to show, that you can multi-task in the fight to #ProtectOurCare

[Thread] Since Trump has officially been #Impeached there are several things that need to happen immediatly:
1. Since he is no longer President The White House & @Twitter should remove @realDonaldTrump access to the @POTUS Twitter account.
2.Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) should be sworn is as President since she rightfully won the 2016 election. She can choose her VP.

3. Trump needs to be charged and arrested for his crimes. #LockHimUp

#Impeached #impeachment
4. President Hillary Clinton(@HillaryClinton) should reverse every Executive order and bill Trump approved while in office

5. 2020 elections should be put on hold and Hillary Clinton gets to serve 2 Terms..

6. The next elections should be held in 2024.

Welcome to the Member of Congress Tracking Report for the week ending November 10, 2019. With Congress on recess this week, we are going to do things a bit differently this week. We are going to take a dive into #McConnellsGraveyard.
#MoCTrack 1/33
bit.ly/34FD5jk
#GOP keeps trotting out their tired talking point about the “do-nothing-Dems” and all we can concentrate on is #Impeachment.

NOT TRUE.

What you’ll find below are 30 bills of the 300+ that #McConnell has stalled in the Senate.

#MoCTrack #DemCast 2/33

HR 1 - #ForThePeople

A bill that would improve voting rights, fix campaign finance regulations, and mandate ethics and accountability reforms.

EVERYONE needs to see this.

A wire map of white supremacy in the Trump administration on immigration.

Check out the link here:

plotagainstimmigrants.com/network/
If you've ever wondered, "Where do all these horrible policies come from?" like #KidsInCages, #MuslimBan, ramped up #ICERaids, #DACA revocation, etc - you might think the evil mind of Stephen Miller.

But Miller's no immigration guru. He's had a LOT of help.
Hover over the names. Read about the connections and you'll see: we're not fighting Trump or Miller.

We're fighting a *movement.* A defined, purposeful movement that thrives on a diet of white nationalism, deplorables, and bigotry.

And we're about 40 years behind them.

Docs you all write brilliant articles, but unless they're affected people don't read them.

PLEASE watch this 2 min video, this is URGENT! There are articles attached to prove this is critical. This can affect every #American. People are needlessly dying, We need your #Help
Almost 6 decades ago the UN addressed the under-treatment of pain, despite narcotic pain relief many people around the world suffer needlessly. In 1961 we recognized the undertreatment of #pain is a #HumanRights abuse. #RNC & #DNC are you listening?

ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/P…
The #DEA is arguably waging a war against the weakest members of society These are #HumanRights abuses! #Trump Administration you think #KidsInCages was bad!

Plz, use the link in the article to let the DEA know what you think about more cuts to supplies

Doing social media for @NewSanctuaryNYC means I rarely take a break from #immigration news. Every day the Trump administration looks for another way to cause harm to black & brown people. Thread highlights some of the current policies. We MUST not stop fighting back. #impeach 👇🏼
The Trump administration is doing another secretive pilot test in El Paso, this time “Prompt Asylum Claim Review,” a program to speed up deportation of #asylum seekers. washingtonpost.com/immigration/tr…
"These new policies have resulted in the separation of family units, lasting trauma and heartache, and shocking detention conditions for both children and adults."

This is your official #DemDebate2 night thread. I am just getting settled here, drinking water only because my liver is still recovering from last night, and I turn on CNN and this dude is preaching to the audience about RAAAAACCCISM! I think he's the head of the DNC. #Hectic
I can already tell I'm going to have to risk gastro upset and head for the liquor cabinet. This is going to be a disaster. #PJMDrunkBlog #DemDebate2
@CNN thinks #KristenG thinks she's being beat up on because she called for #Franken to resign. I think she's a loser because she's connected up to her ears with #NXVIM #DemDebate2 #ChildTrafficking #PJMDrunkBlog

While shutting down traffic at Buffalo NY ICE office, a fellow disobedient thanked me for bringing #veterans ire to stop #KidsInCages & family separations. My reply: there's 1000s of us. Here's why I went: tinyurl.com/yy3ajlt6
#CloseTheCamps #LightsforLiberty #NeverAgainIsNow ImageImage
Thanks @NBCNightlyNews @maddow and @AP for telling the resistance story. Our #CloseTheCamps action in Buffalo called out the real estate moguls who are renting office space to ICE & DHS, thus profiting from state-sponsored child abuse. I’m a #veteran. I got arrested.

@JFMFofWNY Image
As the Buffalo 9 occupied an intersection at the ICE field office until arrested, we wore on our backs the name of a child who died in custody, at the hands of the U.S. gov’t. And so, 7-year old Jakelin Caal Maquin stood with me to say, #CloseTheCampsNow !

How are we not talking about this story 24/7 with the urgency it demands?
This isn't taking place in some developing nation at war, this is happening in TEXAS and YOU are paying for it.
#KidsInCages
Every Democrat running for president should be here. THIS is what you are running against. The atrocities perpetrated by the Trump administration.
#KidsInCages
Remember when everyone was castigating @RepAOC for calling these places concentration camps?
Who can genuinely argue that this inhumane treatment of incarcerated children doesn't fit that definition? Seriously. Who?

I’ve observed Colorado @SenCoryGardner since his election. What I’ve seen has left me dismayed. Rather than building bipartisan bridges to get things done, Cory became a supine Trump yes-man. There are 1000s reasons he shouldn’t be re-elected. Here are 101: #VoteCoryOut #COsen
#1: Even though he was elected by the narrowest of margins in 2014 in a state that has since voted for Hillary in 2016 & a democratic state govt trifecta in 2018, Cory continues to act as if he has a mandate from the white nationalist alt-right. #VoteCoryOut #cosen
#2: Cory Gardner has consistently voted for the extreme Trump agenda. During the 2019-2020 Congress, he’s voted with Trump over 90% of the time. During Trump’s 1st two years, Cory’s voting record was over 95% in line with Trump. #VoteCoryOut #cosen

1. Trump's insane rant sitting next to Al Sissi trying to blame Barack Obama will take some time to process. Most reports say that Trump shakeup is to get even more evil people willing to violate the law. But Trump now says he had nothing to do with #KidsInCages? Is it possible
2. that Stephen Miller isn't as powerful as we think. Trump's problem is he made the border worse. Even if you give him a pass as being the cause, it's a fact that it got worse on his watch. Trump can't legally do what he wants but his base may attack him anyway. Mobs are fickle.
3. @realDonaldTrump problem is that a bigot can never fix immigration. As long has he has White Nationalists like Miller in the @WhiteHouse Trump can't do anything to fix immigration and his one promise will be a total failure going into 2020. IMO Miller has something on Trump.

So all of us in the #resistance are giving ourselves a big pat on the back for the #BlueWave. After all, we took 40 seats and soon @TeamPelosi will be House Speaker

Great job! We think. After two long years we can finally take it easy.

NOT. SO. FAST.

<Thread>
Yes, it was wonderful to see those Democratic candidates win. And nice to see our effort rewarded.

With control of the House, we now have a Constitutional check on the president PLUS we control more governorships and state legislatures

But there’s still a TON of work to do.
As the past few days have shown, we still have a corrupt president: compromised by Russia, beholden to Saudi Arabia, unwilling to acknowledge basic facts about climate change and seemingly unconcerned about the sanctity of human life.
