The #DreamAndPromise Act will provide long overdue protections to DACA, TPS, and DED recipients. Disappointingly, the legislation also contains harmful criminalization bars that will exclude many immigrant youth. We need bold and inclusive legislation that leaves no one behind.
Thanks @RepMondaire for highlighting the importance of second chances & the need to eliminate the criminalization bars that will exclude thousands from the #DreamAndPromise Act.…
Thank you @RepPressley @RepSchakowsky @RepChuyGarcia for highlighting the need for bold & inclusive legislation that leaves no one behind and why the criminalization bars have no place in the #DreamAndPromise Act.
👏👏We must work to make sure no one is behind & ALL immigrant youth are included in protections. Shout out to @RepChuyGarcia for his leadership in opposing harmful criminalization bars in #DreamAndPromise Act.

DHS continues to grow its massive immigration detention system using a web of corrupt contracts that breed impunity for abuses. We echo @DetentionWatch's call: Time to #CutTheContracts & shut down the #FirstTen immigrant detention centers.

The Trump admin has unleashed a torrent of final regulations and policies targeting asylum seekers - 7 rules in 7 days. Each rule will have devastating consequences. Here’s why: (1/9)
First, DHS finalized a plan to send asylum seekers to El Salvador, mirroring an agreement w/ Guatemala that endangered 1000+ mostly women & children. @NIJC @CGRShastings @ACLU & @humanrights1st challenged this violation of US asylum obligations. (2/9)
Next, DOJ imposed a fee on asylum applications for the *first time ever* to deter asylum seekers from seeking protection. They also increased fees up to 800% for appeals. @NIJC @CGRS @supportKIND @quinnemanuel filed a suit today. (3/9)

UPDATE: Today a CA federal court issued final order in our lawsuit w/ @ACLU_SoCal ruling immigration detainers issued by ICE out of its Pacific Enforcement Response Center violate the Constitution & are null & void (even if PERC moves to another state).… 1/
