Your reminder that when Democratic members invited undocumented immigrants including #DACA recipients to the 2018 State of the Union, Paul Gosar called on Capitol Police and then-AG Sessions to have them arrested and deported:…
.@RepGosar, 2018: "Of all the places where the Rule of Law needs to be enforced, it should be in the hallowed halls of Congress. Any illegal aliens attempting to go through security, under any pretext of invitation or otherwise, should be arrested and deported."
"This isn't the first time @RepGosar's extreme immigration views have surfaced; the Arizona congressman is known for posting studies on social media claiming that dreamers are responsible for sizable percentages of crime in his home state."

Trump to end presidency the same way he kicked off run, by attacking immigrants:…
Border Network for Human Rights executive director Fernando García: "Rather than spend his last days in the Oval Office addressing the pressing #COVID19 pandemic and ensuring an orderly transition, Trump is doubling down on his xenophobic, white supremacist agenda."
"The wall that he consistently glorifies as his legacy is nothing but a shameful reminder of the suffering, violence and division that he has fostered. Trump does not and has never represented our communities. His presence at the borderland is a provocation ..."

Trump and seditionist @tedcruz wasted no time trying to pin the 2017 death of a border agent on immigrants (the FBI later found no foul play):…

But not a peep from Trump today after an officer was killed due to the violent mob he incited.
NPR in 2018: "Shortly after the incident, President Trump tweeted, 'Border Patrol Officer killed at Southern Border, another badly hurt. We will seek out and bring to justice those responsible. We will, and must, build the Wall!'"
Seditionist "@tedcruz, R-Texas, tweeted that the incident was 'a stark reminder of the ongoing threat that an unsecure border poses.' Brandon Judd, president of the National Border Patrol Council, the agents' union, concluded the agents were brutally beaten with rocks."

"In declarations, the women depict a grim system in which violations of bodily autonomy and informed consent, unnecessary medical treatments, and rampant medical neglect are commonplace":… #ShutDownIrwin
"Attorneys w/SPLC’s Southeast Immigrant Freedom Initiative supported the women in filing the complaints after months of interviews w/them. Of the women who filed complaints today, three have been deported, one has been released, and six remain detained at ICDC." #ShutDownIrwin

New reporting revealed officials wanted to separate kids no matter how young. TV news largely ignored it.

While MSNBC devoted some time, “Fox News, ABC News, NBC News, and CBS had zero reporting on the story, while CNN devoted just 9 mins to coverage.”…
“Kirstjen Nielsen and Jeff Sessions later claimed that the admin had never intentionally sought to separate families. The NYT piece—based on a forthcoming report from Inspector General Michael Horowitz—reveals that those claims were lies.”
“Since the initial reporting, from the morning of October 6 through the morning of October 8, all English-language cable and broadcast news networks aside from CNN and MSNBC have completely ignored the New York Times report.”

Amnesty International USA: “Given the current conditions in the country, it is extremely likely that anyone who is returned to Cameroon will face a high risk of being detained, beaten, disappeared, tortured, or possibly even killed." #FreeCameroonians
Refugees International urges halt to imminent deportation of Black immigrants:

"Most fled government persecution or civil war at home and will face the very real risk of violence, torture, and even execution upon their return." #FreeCameroonians
“Refugees International is alarmed by reports that the Trump admin will begin deporting large groups of asylum seekers from Cameroon and the Democratic Republic of the Congo this week. These asylum seekers are currently being held in ICE detention centers." #FreeCameroonians
