1/ When an outbreak of influenza hits your country, tripling cases from a year before, do you…

🚨 Vaccinate everyone, or…

🚨 Gather people from many countries into crowded spaces, deprive them of food and clean water, refuse to vaccinate them, and let nature take its course?
2/ There's a BIG SURGE IN FLU CASES in 2019.

Australia expanded its vaccine program to fight the virus.

President* Trump REFUSES to vaccinate people in #TrumpConcentrationCamps.

Barbed wire cannot contain influenza so MANY AMERICANS WILL GET SICK, TOO.

3/ Flu complications killed 80,000 people in 2018 in the USA.

President* Trump does not need gas chambers to commit genocide in his concentration camps.

He can just keep families in cages INDEFINITELY, and let influenza go viral.

This flu chart uptick for 2019 is HORRIFYING:

BREAKING: #JewsAgainstICE are assembling to shut down their local concentration camp in Houston, Texas.

Never Again is a promise, and it requires action.

#JewsAgainstICE and allies in Houston are blocking the road outside of the Southwest Key facility. We will continue disrupting business as usual until you #CloseTheCamps, #AbolishICE, and stop terrorizing our immigrant neighbors.

PS: This street is called Emancipation Avenue. 🤔
Police are already on the scene in Houston, where #JewsAgainstICE are risking arrest to demand a #DignityPlan for immigration.

We're participating in nonviolent, direct action because we can't accept these atrocities in our communities.

This is Carlos Gregorio Hernandez Vasquez.

Just 16 years old when he entered the US alone, on May 13, 2019.

He was a healthy child.

An optimistic child.

He was alone when he died 7 days later in a Border Patrol Station in Texas.

Carlos is the most recent of the #TrumpSeven.
2/ Carlos had 8 younger siblings who called him Goyito.

He loved playing soccer and music, especially piano and bass.

Carlos came to US to help support his brother Edgar who has special needs.

When he arrived in Rio Grande Valley (RGV), he was healthy.

3/ Children like Carlos are supposed to be in Border Patrol custody for 3 days or less.

Carlos spent SIX DAYS in McAllen BPS — without reason — instead of transferring to ORR custody.

Carlos (from Guatemala) was caged with people from Honduras, El Salvador, Brazil, Nicaragua…

Used to be 2 weeks, caught w/in 100 miles of border, but now you'll have to prove you were here for 2 YEARS--& they can snag you anywhere--or else you can be deported WITHOUT seeing a judge.

Takes effect immediately, but comments ARE allowed.
This pdf is the "change in regulation," as sent out by DHS this morning, which will allow them, potentially, to deport many, many more people without judicial oversight or review. People who've lived here for years.…
And this is where, starting tomorrow (TUESDAY) you'll be able to start leaving comments on the Federal Register. I suggest you do. DHS needs to know what you think about their gestapo tactics.

Hm. I may have betrayed my hand there...

RIGHT NOW: #JewsAgainstICE and allies are blocking the Atlanta ICE Field Office, chanting #NeverAgainMeansNow! From Maine to Georgia, from California to DC, we will continue to make it impossible for ICE to do business as usual.

Join us TOMORROW in DC:
The police are shoving #JewsAgainstICE who are blocking the ICE Field Office in Atlanta.

#NeverAgainMeans putting ourselves between ICE and the people they’re trying to hurt. And the police are not going to be on our side.
This is what it looks like to *actually* resist ICE. It means blocking driveways, blocking deportation vans, it means blockading detention centers.

If our resistance is only symbolic, it’s not enough.

Come to DC tomorrow, or get involved in your area:

1/ Mariee Juárez was only 21 months old when she died after being held in Dilley Family Detention Center in Texas.

She was a healthy child.

A happy child.

She and her mother fled the violence of Guatemala.

Mariee died on US soil, of medical neglect.

First of the #TrumpSeven:
2/ Mariee at 19mos and her mom entered the US along our Mexico border on March 1 2018, and were transferred to Dilley FOUR days later…

Not THREE as legally mandated.

They were put in a cell with 5 other mothers and their kids, some of whom were sick. Especially one little boy.
3/ By March 11, 2018 — under a week after being imprisoned in a Dilley camp cell — Mariee had an “acute upper respiratory infection,” diagnosed by a physician’s assistant at Dilley.

She was prescribed honey packs and Tylenol.

She did not get better. 💔

"If I had been born in the South as a white person, would I have the moral courage to think that slavery was wrong, even though society around me thought it was okay? And I thought the same thing when I learned about the Holocaust" @ Theo Lacy Detention Center, Orange, California
"Today, if you are home and making excuses for what is happening, then you know the answer to that question. If you are turning your back on people now, that is exactly how you would have acted in 1939. That is how you would have acted during slavery."
BREAKING: Police moving in to make arrests of #JewsAgainstICE and allies blocking multiple entrances of the Theo Lacy Detention Center in Orange, California. #NeverAgainMeans making it so ICE cannot continue to terrorize immigrants, at the border OR in our backyards #AbolishICE

A clip of what it looked from INSIDE the ICE camp to agents unable to leave or bring arrivals because of #JewsAgainstICE blockade in Elizabeth NJ.

Each time a new exit/entrance was explored by police, the @NeverAgainActn squad divided and quickly covered each.

@NeverAgainActn And the other blockade.
@NeverAgainActn Then when police cut the locks to an auxiliary exit/entrance to surprise us with, #JewsAgainstICE divided again and covered that too before they could use it.
