Don’t spend a second on Trump’s unhinged Bezos or Warren tweets tonight. He’s trolling you. Instead watch Nilda’s Story. Survivor of sex, domestic, & gang violence. Then child separation at his orders. She has strength, courage, selflessness. His opposite.
Then spend the time you saved supporting people like Nilda, now living in the US, struggling to survive while they wait to find out if they’ll be allowed to stay. Visit whiletheywait.org for info on how you can donate & join the movement.
Money raised for the #WhileTheyWait Fund will go to helping the 311k asylum seekers now released & living in the U.S. struggling to pay for necessities, while they wait for work authorizations, & expand access to legal counsel. Click here to donate: whiletheywait.org/#give
92k immigrant parents & children currently living in the U.S. have open immigration cases. With no lawyer, they almost never gain asylum—only 1.6% of the time. With a lawyer, there’s a 26.3% success rate. Join the movement to demand a right to counsel: whiletheywait.org/#action
If you have more time, follow & support @BxLegalServices @BklynDefender @RAICESTEXAS @ACLUSoCal, the orgs behind this campaign &/or representing Nilda along w/ thousands of other immigrants seeking a life here. Lastly, I saw this apt sign in the restaurant I ate at tonight👇.
