@segalmr This imperative includes Legislature. The absence of concrete REAL and meaningful policy from #MALeg is an appalling moral failure. This lies at every legislator's feet until THEY are protesting and organizing for #Safecommunitiesact, DLs.

@segalmr @MA_Senate So, call, email, buttonhole at the Senior Center coffee, your State Legislators, senators and reps, and ask them: what, dear Elected, are you actually doing to push #Safecommunitiesact to a vote, and mobilize your colleagues, your caucus, your Leadership, to pass it? #mapoli
@segalmr @MA_Senate Listen to their answers. Notice if, how they shift the burden of action to Someone Somewhere Else (leadership, other legislators, The Voters (lol), I dunno, Trump). Politely, firmly bring it back to, what, then, are YOU doing to push them/that? #legisplaining #Safecommunitiesact

β€œWe’re here to ensure accountability.”

A public accounting in the real OC for the OC Sheriff and Supervisors’ use of county resources for immigration enforcement, a thread!

#UncoverTheTruth #ICEoutofCA #ICEoutofOC #BastaHate #TruthForum #DefendSanctuary #SanctuaryCities
California law requires a public accounting for counties engaged in immigration enforcement, for ex. transferring people to ICE custody. One of many state policies enacted in response to a decade of expansion of jail deportation operations. #truthforum #truthact #transparency
The hundreds of #sanctuarycities across the country are also part of this reaction to unprecedented expansion of federal deportations programs trying to utilize local and state resources. #TheySaidNope #EndSCOMM #Basta287g #SafeCommunitiesAct #TrustAct #NoICEAccess

...So many convincing things about The Process. Because,
Yes yes, they're WITH YOU on the *Goal*!
Of COURSE they stand with immigrants and against the racism of Trump's ICE!...

Dear liberal America. There are a few things I'd like to say about Gov Charlie Baker, in light of his signing our state's first automatic voter registration bill today and being championed by national media. Am I happy he signed the bill? Yes. However, it's complicated... #mapoli
Over the last two years, Charlie Baker has been characterized as a "reasonable, moderate, bipartisan Republican" who often stands up to Trump. The adjectives are debatable. However, when it comes to the "standing up to Trump" part, nothing could be further from the truth #mapoli
When Trump accused Massachusetts of sending busloads of voters into New Hampshire during the election β€” when he accused our state of being complicit in an InfoWars-esque voter fraud conspiracy β€” Baker's response was, "I don't know much about what goes on in New Hampshire" #mapoli

Last year, I wrote this piece on Charlie Baker's popularity and the fact that Baker has quietly supported Trump's agenda on climate, taxes, and immigration. Now, he's poised to win re-election: even as MA Democrats rage about ICE and child prisons. #mapoli wbur.org/cognoscenti/20…
Charlie Baker's popularity among Democrats in Massachusetts is a mass scale act of cognitive dissonance. There are too many people here who decry the destruction of local immigrant families one day and celebrate Baker as a "reasonable, bipartisan moderate" the next day. #mapoli
The reality is that Baker has done nearly nothing to protect immigrant communities from ICE and he STILL hasn't supported the #SafeCommunitiesAct, which would improve ties between those communities and local law enforcement. In this way, Baker has helped Donald Trump. #mapoli

1/ SOS #BOSTON:

Yesterday #ICE physically restrained my client just outside the #EastBoston District Court clerk's office immediately after he made bail. The chief of probation said it was the first time in 40 yrs immigration authorities had actually entered the courthouse.
2/ He is 21 years old. No crim record. 1 month away from a greencard. Facing serious harm if deported.

We had done everything possible to keep him from #ICE, but even the #Boston #TrustAct could not protect him.

This is a problem.

@LydiaMEdwards @marty_walsh @adrianmadaro
3/ Even when they are on a state-issued GPS bracelet, ICE officers will cut the bracelet off and toss it back onto a probation officer's desk. Even so, probation told me that they are officially "neutral" on #ICE actions. I tried to explain that there is no "neutral" here.
