MPP: Our firm has been providing legal assistance to refugees along the Mexican border since the Regime began implementing its family separation policy 2 years ago, seeking to deter asylum seekers through cruelty. Now we are facing MPP.

My MPP thread.
MPP is the latest turn of cruelty visited on refugee families. Families who plead for asylum are rounded up & deposited en masse on the bridge forced to return to Mexico while they wait on their hearings - a dangerous no go zone according to US officials.…
The families are easily targeted by cartel gangsters (thanks to MPP) and placed at risk of being robbed, kidnapped, and worse. Our lawyers are forced to travel to Mexico to meet with our clients at secret locations for safety, a not appealing journey.
We now find ourselves in the Regime's tent courthouse in Laredo, teeming with single mothers and young children, like our clients desperately seeking protection from grave dangers. With one exception - our clients are the only families with legal counsel.
#DontLookAway. Until we dismantle the Regime's illegal & unconscionable asylum policies, we must struggle as best we can to protect children, because MPP is a continuation of asylum policies based on deterrence by targeting innocent children with cruelty:
We shield our MPP family clients while we fight the Regime at the tent by housing them in the relative safety of Monterrey. We need help. Our clients are single mothers with young children who are mostly penniless & would otherwise end up on the streets.
Fighting the Regime in the tents is no easy task. Along with proving a family's seminal asylum claim of fear to return to their country, we also must now litigate the family's fear to return to Mexico, as well as seek entry through bond while their case is litigated - and appeals
We provide legal services pro bono. However, our clients must rely on the #resistance to fight the Regime's illegal policy of family cruelty. Please consider helping these families stay off the dangerous streets of the border & out of harm's way.…
Our legal work is based on empathy for children and their caregiver single mothers. Please consider joining our efforts.
