Good morning, all! It's Sam (@samsokol19) back live-tweeting Day 3 of the #KavanaughHearings. We're all a little tired 😴... but let's do this!
Yesterday, Kavanaugh dropped some major hints about how he plans to undermine church-state separation on the Supreme Court. #StopKavanaugh
Yesterday, Kavanaugh clearly stated that he thinks it's ok for the government to fund religious activities with taxpayer funds.

Each of us should get to decide for ourselves whether & how our money supports religion–that’s a guarantee of the U.S. Constitution. #StopKavanaugh

President Trump says, “It’s embarrassing for the country to allow protesters.”

It’s the opposite.

We will stand, sit and kneel until we are free from hate and bigotry, until #blacklivesmatter, “until justice rolls down like water and righteousness like a mighty stream.”
Trump says, “In the old days, we used to throw [protesters] out.”

That’s true: many Americans died protesting, especially here in the South.

Trump says, “You don’t even know what side the protesters are on.”

President Trump has indeed been very clear about which protesters he supports.

Thread on growing threats targeting immigrant and refugee survivors and how we can support as part of #FreeThemAll National Week of Action. #SurvivedAndPunished #AbolishICE
#ICYMI, check out the recording of #AbolishICE Teach In: Free All Criminalized Survivors featuring Ny Nourn and Floricel Liborio Ramos, formerly incarcerated immigrant survivors! #FreeThemAll #SurvivedAndPunished facebook.com/survivedandpun…
Immigration laws have always been rooted in the violent history of genocide and slavery. Fleeing violence (migration) is often deeemed "illegal" by immigration and criminal legal systems #SurvivedAndPunished #FreeThemAll #AbolishICE

Tales From An Immigration Lawyer

Today was yet another reminder of what happens when there's no check on hate.

First consult this morning: An American who faces dim prospects of ever being together with his Syrian fiancee. #NoMuslimBanEver
Second consult: A young Mexican, bullied his whole life because of a speech impediment, stopped sending money to his family when his abusive, alcoholic father stole it. Then his parents threatened to kill him if he returned.

Nearly zero chance (thus far) on winning asylum.
Third consult: Three brothers of a former client. Two other brothers already murdered; 2 sisters were raped and beaten. MS-13.

You get used to seeing fear in people's eyes. But it doesn't get easier with time.

Strong asylum claims, but not eligible to file. So they're stuck.

A small SCOTUS majority can't change the principles upon which this country was founded. The Statue of Liberty’s plea to ‘Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free’ is cast in bronze – not merely written on paper #NoMuslimBanEver
This decision allows the Trump admin to turn its back on a proud moral tradition of aiding refugees&immigrants who seek our help in times of crisis. Future generations will look back at today’s SCOTUS decision with the same disgust&disdain that Americans now feel for Korematsu.
Congress must act now to reverse this misguided policy and protect American values from a President who seems intent on destroying them.

I don't often share #woo here for various reasons. Today I'm compelled to share that Mars goes retrograde at 5:04 pm EST. I'm a bit worried abt widespread violence. We must fight back against this grave injustice, but we must do so peacefully. LOUDLY, but peacefully 1/
This is all about rage. Right now all good, non-racist Americans feel righteous rage. The kind that fuels movements. We need to use this constructively, carefully and control it to win this fight, rather than allowing it to explode. Trump WANTS us to erupt in violence 2/
#StephenMiller, who has been strategically inflaming us with outrageous, disgusting trolling (eating in Mexican restaurants, etc): wants us to erupt: they want a Reichstag Fire. They may send instigators into our protests. Brownshirts. Watch for this. Protect each other 3/

Understand that when highest court in the land sides w/increasingly authoritarian president against a minority group because of hate and bias against that group, it means that the highest court in the land has given a green light for him to eventually come for you too. #MuslimBan
NO ONE WITH POWER IS STANDING UP TO TRUMP. When the US goes full-on fascist, remember all these green lights he was given. And remember the “civility” crowd and their shutting down of any necessary incivility and civil disobedience. Civility = collaboration #MuslimBan #FuckTrump
And understand that for years and even before the #MuslimBan, anti-Muslim bias and violence have been rising in the #USA. SCOTUS has endorsed even more.

Everyone who believes in #NoMuslimBanEver and is against the Trump Regime kidnapping infants and children should peacefully pour out in the streets today!

This is complete racist bullshit handed down by a Supreme Court with a stolen seat.
Next Trump and his criminal cabal is going to start kidnapping Muslim babies. What a dark period in America a country that used to represent Justice, Liberty, and Freedom for All

•Dred Scott: Blacks are alien—cant bring suit
•Plessy: Blacks are alien—racial segregation is legal
•Cherokee Nation: Cherokees are aliens—cant bring suit
•Korematsu: Japanese are alien—can be put in Concentration Camps
•Hawaii: Banning Muslim aliens is legal

I see a trend.
Justice Sotomayor’s dissent and citing Korematsu nails it.
•Japanese has been replaced with Muslim.
•Progress was not made today.
•History will record this injustice.

Trump Hotels' website still lists Trump SoHo New York among its properties in the Our Hotels menu. Select its name though to access its page and there's a message about it being renamed

Two errors in the 2nd graf of Breitbart's Trump Hotel DC article:
-holdings aren't out of @realDonaldTrump's hands: trust isn't blind & he can profit from it
-Trump Org told Congress it was estimating foreign receipts—not auto donating in full

US opens 4th Circuit arguments with defense of #MuslimBan 3.0 as being fundamentally different from previous orders. #NoMuslimBanEver
Court: What are differences in #MuslimBan 3.0? US: PROCEDURUAL difference - multi-agency process. COURT: But what process was there? The ban just names countries.
Court: if the courts cannot review the president’s actions, who can? US: the president took an oath of office to uphold the Constitution. Court: the oversight of the president’s authority is his oath of office?
