Today, Zioness Philadelphia and Zioness Director of Grassroots Organizing @CarlyPildis marched in solidarity with #homeishere #protectdaca #saveTPS #ZionessAction #ZionessSpeaksForMe Image
We were inspired and outraged by the stories we heard. We stand with DREAMers, TPS recipients and all immigrants. We stand against injustice which is why we are Zionists. #homeishere #ZionessAction #zionessSpeaksForMe Image
We marched together because we believe there is no American Dream without DREAMers!! #ZionessAction #ZionessSpeaksforMe

#TPSElSalvador, #TPSHonduras, #TPSHaiti, #TPSNepal, #TPSNicaragua, and #TPSSudan have ALL been AUTOMATICALLY extended to 1/4/2021.

There is nothing you need to file or pay for. Show your employer this notice if they have questions.

For as much relief as this #TPS extension has given these communities, it's also going to create mass confusion for employers and recipients. AFAIK this is the longest period for which TPS has ever been extended without actually issuing new notices, let alone cards.
By "automatically-extended EAD," DHS means work permits which have already expired as of now but are as of today officially valid until 1/4/21. Looking forward to spending many hours over the course of the next year explaining this to HR for my clients 🙄

A true story, from today:

My client has been in the US for 23 yrs. Her adult son is a US citizen. Never been arrested, always worked + paid her taxes. Has #TPSElSalvador, but wants permanent status.

Easy, right? Not so much.
Let's start with this: adult children can only file for their parents if they entered legally. If not, the parent has to leave and wait for 10 years before applying. Few non-citizens know this before I tell them. All citizens should.
My client has been in temporary legal status (#TPS) since 2001. This gives no path to citizenship, and Trump has ended it. We have until Jan 2, 2020 to do something for thousands of my Salvadoran neighbors.

We are trying to declare the fire "safe" for people escaping the firing pan.

This is it. We're done. We are the baddies.

I hope I live to see my country recover from the shame of this
A "regional issue"?!

Imagining burning down an entire neighborhood and refusing to help the displaced victims. Making them house and care for each other. Torturing and bullying them if they have the temerity to come to you, the perpetrator, asking for help.

@FAIRImmigration, founded by Dr. John Tanton, is a mouthpiece of white nationalist rhetoric. But it's more than that: it injects its foul ideology into actual policy.

One (latest) example: Temporary Protected Status, or TPS. Read what a federal judge found:

On p29 of the decision, the Court gives yet another example of Acting Secy Elaine Duke, who is supposed to make a dispassionate assessment of conditions on the ground in determining TPS eligibility, said "this conclusion [to end TPS] is the result of an America first view..."
Curious, because America was founded on ideals of welcoming the forcibly displaced. I'm not sure what "American first" has to do with terminating TPS.

If the White House is influencing the decision, we have a problem, because the White House has made A LOT of racist statements.

These Haitian expatriates—who we accepted in good faith—have made significant contributions to our society. They are employed with American businesses, they invest in homes and apartments, and contribute their wages to our taxes. (1/7) #SaveTPS
The Haitians who have qualified for TPS have developed deep economic and social attachments to our communities here in the United States—nowhere is this more apparent than in South Florida. (2/7) #SaveTPS
Those with TPS have submitted to fingerprints, background checks, and filed the necessary paperwork. They entered into this program to live and work in our communities without the fear of deportation. (3/7) #SaveTPS
