THREAD. Read this whole thread up/down. If you aren’t educated on what’s happening to now LEGAL immigrants in America and those trying to come LEGALLY, and you care about families/justice, get educated. Stop making excuses that you don’t know what’s going on. This matters.
2) It continues to amaze how long pastors and church members who read their Bibles week after week can keep silent. We had almost a year to speak against all this. Many of us did. Many opposed this. Many sounded the alarm. So many more said nothing.
3) The impact this rule change will have on legal immigrants based on SPECULATION that they might need Federal assistance in the FUTURE is severe and can be arbitrary. These decisions are made out of the public eye and are easily manipulated, but lives/families depend on them.
4) This wasn’t about Rule of Law, ILLEGAL Immigration, or security. It wasn’t about protecting American workers. It was about fear of demographic/cultural changes and the fear that the GOP could not win elections in the future. And, ultimately, that’s about race/ethnicity.
5) Anyway, read/follow @MatthewSoerens. He’s one of the smartest guys I know on this and brings the receipts.
6) Finally, research shows that Cucinelli’s own Italian immigrant ancestors would not have been allowed into the United States under this rule change. My ancestors from Ireland and Germany would not have been either. Remember, people have vast potential.
