[Thread] We are increasingly concerned by the cruel and inhumane treatment of immigrants and refugees in the U.S., the camps in which they are concentrated and caged, and reports of people dying while in the custody of ICE. It’s time to take action.
Advocates report deeply disturbing conditions:

• People detained in outdoor cages,
• Children deprived of food,
• Babies denied medical care,
• Families held in military camps,
• Lawyers and observers denied entry

It’s up to us to stop this.
Worse: Amid countless stories of abuses in these camps, @KenKlippenstein learned that ICE recently stopped reporting deaths of detainees. We must speak out against this disturbing pattern of disregard for the lives of immigrants — and demand accountability
There are many different ways you can help fight back against and stop these human rights abuses. One of them is to contact your elected representatives in Congress and demand they take action to end the persecution of immigrants in the United States. contactingcongress.org
You can also help by donating to organizations promoting immigrant rights, e.g. @UndocuBlack, @TeachersACD, @CausaOregon, @MuslimAdvocates, @ACLU, @DetentionWatch, @ImmAdvocates, @UnitedWeDream, @NILC, @ImmDefense, & @familiesforfreedom. Find one near you: informedimmigrant.com/service-organi…
We need people to be visible: Check out the work of #OccupyICE protestors throughout the country. Last night, Portlanders have resumed a protest outside their local ICE building, using nonviolent civil disobedience to disrupt the cycle of detentions & deportations. @OccupyICEPDX
We’re inspired by those choosing to take action, often at personal risk, to end human rights abuses, denials of due process, and weaponized prejudice that constitute our @ICEgov’s current anti-immigrant crusade. We support these efforts and so should you. #OccupyICE #OccupyICEPDX
We call on you to act on your conscience, oppose the racial nationalism animating these abuses, and express solidarity with detained immigrants, their families, and the millions among us who might be next. Our vision of an inclusive democracy depends on it #WeFightTheFearTogether
