THIS is what the truth about CBP & ICE getting $4.6 BILLION with ZERO oversight gets you.

Shame on any @HouseDemocrats who voted for that piece of garbage bill.

Shame on @SenSchumer for throwing y'all under the bus.

@HouseDemocrats @SenSchumer First, my GIANT and always growing list of shelters (including the one mentioned above) & other organizations & charities helping refugees at the border, along w/specifics on what they need + links, often to Amazon wishlists.

Pick one or two or a dozen.
@HouseDemocrats @SenSchumer A GREAT resource, from an immigration attorney, on ACTIONS you can take to help, including volunteering, info on appropriate use of language, participating in and/or organizing protests, contacting Electeds and much more.

Pick one or two or a dozen:
@HouseDemocrats @SenSchumer The @ACLU, on the frontlines of this battle since the start, has some excellent resources, too.

They REALLY, REALLY want you to call your Rep and Senators. A lot. Daily, if you can. Please.
@HouseDemocrats @SenSchumer @ACLU The @ACLU even has a script you can use, & a link to get you to the right numbers for YOUR Electeds. It's so easy a child not-in-a-concentration-camp* could do it.

*children in them have virtually zero access to the outside world. WE must be their voice.
@HouseDemocrats @SenSchumer @ACLU The first nationwide protest to #CloseTheCamps is happening Tuesday, July 2nd.

THREE days from now.

If it doesn't seem like much time to prepare, consider how long those 72 hours will feel like to children sleeping on concrete without adequate food.
@HouseDemocrats @SenSchumer @ACLU Another protest, a vigil, is set for Friday, July 12th. So see, there are choices, even in this. More than the children are getting, that's for sure.

Find a location holding vigil near you & go. Even better if it's one of the 100s of ICE detention camps:
@HouseDemocrats @SenSchumer @ACLU Hit me with other suggestions, but the big ones're covered:

🚨 Donate/volunteer to/with places that need it
🚨 Call your Electeds & demand to know what they're doing
🚨 Protest your brains out

Most important: DO NOT GIVE UP

It's hard not to feel overwhelmed, but 🙏
@HouseDemocrats @SenSchumer @ACLU @ifindkarma @jomareewade @B52Malmet @TheLoyalO @DemocracyStorm @_SJPeace_ @brycetache @BryanDawsonUSA @TheSWPrincess @TrinityResists .@andreapitzer, who literally wrote THE book on concentration camps, on their history & the horror, and why it's ESSENTIAL we act NOW, and not wait another minute.

@HouseDemocrats @SenSchumer @ACLU @ifindkarma @jomareewade @B52Malmet @TheLoyalO @DemocracyStorm @_SJPeace_ @brycetache @BryanDawsonUSA @TheSWPrincess @TrinityResists @andreapitzer Her book is currently available on Amazon (though for *some* reason has been selling out in bookstores, of late):


Always available as Kindle, tho.
@HouseDemocrats @SenSchumer @ACLU @ifindkarma @jomareewade @B52Malmet @TheLoyalO @DemocracyStorm @_SJPeace_ @brycetache @BryanDawsonUSA @TheSWPrincess @TrinityResists @andreapitzer But what are we, if not a nation which has faced challenges?

Always, we have done so, invariably, with the help and valuable assistance of immigrants, for so were we born.

Love and Light, friends. 💜🙏
