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?

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."

@DavidJHarrisJr @nancy_faust @marklevinshow Last show was on this very subject. America is leading the World in Child Sex Trafficking and the left wants no part at warning the people.

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

#KidsInCages might be an issue on THIS side of the border, but decades of failure to act, abdication of responsibility & bribery of politicians has killed thousands of people as they make their way to US. Shifty-eyed @SenSchumer & @SpeakerPelosi has decades to fix this. #Bribery
“From beheading to kidnappings, there is no limit to what Mexican drug cartels will do to assert their dominance—they deal not only in drugs, but also in humans. The majority of the coyotes who help undocumented immigrants cross the border are affiliated with the cartels” @AOC
“Symbols like the rape tree serve as a reminder to volunteers or anyone passing through of the escalating brutality “coyotes” are using to control immigrants they lead through this land” @AOC @IlhanMN @SpeakerPelosi @SenSchumer @ewarren @BernieSanders @KamalaHarris #YouDidThis

Yet, in the WH “fact sheet” he seems stunned by the amount of takers they had for free health care legal care & jobs.”This past summer, the President and the entire Administration responded to the influx of unaccompanied children with an aggressive, coordinated Federal response”
The following info comes from Obama’s WH archive. This is his EO on immigration in 2015. With the stroke of a pen, he opened the borders & tried to create 2M new little taxpayers who would vote Democrat. That’s not all. obamawhitehouse.archives.gov/the-press-offi…
“...focused on heightened deterrence, enhanced enforcement, stronger foreign cooperation, and greater capacity for Federal agencies to ensure that our border remains secure. As a result, the number of unaccompanied children attempting to cross the Southwest border has declined“

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.

IN 2018, WE MUST VOTE BECAUSE:
✅ American democracy is on the ballot
✅ Basic human decency is on the ballot
✅ The health of our planet is on the ballot
✅ Equality & justice are on the ballot
HERE ARE 10 MORE REASONS TO #VoteBlueToSaveAmerica:
1) Donald Trump thinks there are "very fine people" who march with neo-Nazis and the KKK.
2) Donald Trump & the Republicans instituted a Muslim ban in a country whose founding is defined by freedom of religion. #VoteBlue2018 #NoBanNoWall
