"Persecuted minorities, having been historically traumatized, feel the future before the rest of us do. They feel it in dread, anxiety, despair, shock. They feel it deep down in their bones. They don’t need statistics & charts to tell them what’s coming."…
What this piece leaves out: we follow in the footsteps of decades of resistance by immigrant communities, in the face of harsh repression. For example, even our primary tactic of using non-violent direct action to shut down ICE facilities was pioneered in 2010 by #Not1More.
And we are far from the only historically or currently persecuted group sounding the alarm and taking action! Just take a look at the coalition of Latinx, Japanese-American, Black, Indigenous, & Jewish groups who stopped the re-opening of the Japanese internment camp at Ft. Sill

Today, ICE deported 40+ Cambodian Americans. Many have never set foot in Cambodia & all came to the U.S. after the U.S. carpet bombed Cambodia.

The U.S. has no right to preach freedom this July. The U.S. is the biggest perpetrator of violence this world has ever known. #FuckICE
Peep @mattsdriscoll’s work to learn more about Cambodian deportations:…

I am proud to announce that I have been certified "dangerous and unprofessional" by Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and I'm pleased to say that the feeling is mutual.
To be clear: the U.S. government believes it was "dangerous and unprofessional" of me to tell the story of a single mother arbitrarily detained by #ICE with no thought for her 8-year-old son, and to request support for her from my fellow citizens.

I have a problem with this.
ADDENDUM: Author requested that #ICE contact local @AILANational chapter to "share these concerns." ICE AILA liaison called later that week to inform me that #ICE believed that I was "endangering officer safety"... advocating for public to call #ICE to support a client.

Y'all ready for a "did you know?" thread about undocumented immigrants? Well sit down & you'll see how it's not as simple as people think
Did you know there are over 11 million undocumented immigrants living in the US? This is also not by chance but b/c of broken policies
Did you know that 42% came legally and over stayed their visas? Did you know that in 2015 Canada had the highest number of overstayed Visas?
