The Biden Administration is taking more steps to undo and repair some of the most cruel elements of the Trump era immigration. bit.ly/3f5CcIY #WelcomeWithDignity Image
"The Biden Administration’s decision to stop detaining immigrants at two detention facilities in Massachusetts and Georgia and rescind associated 287(g) agreements is a welcome first step toward undoing Trump’s four year reign of cruelty against immigrants." - @DavidLeopold
"Today’s announcement by Secretary Mayorkas brings hope that in the days & weeks to come the Biden administration will end all 287(g) agreements throughout the U.S. & ensure that ICE & CBP will abide by the highest professional standards & are held accountable." - @DavidLeopold

New blog by @ZacharyAMueller on what to take away from the failed campaigns of nativists Kris Kobach and Lou Barletta and the GOP's embrace of this strategy.

"In spite of his repeated losses for statewide office, Kobach will most assuredly not moderate his tone, radical far-right activism, or putting anti-immigrant politics at the forefront of his campaign."
"Barletta represented Pennsylvania 11th Congressional district, where he became a leading Trump cheerleader, before running for Senate with Trump’s endorsement... Pennsylvania voters were not convinced by Barletta’s brand of xenophobia and handed him a massive 13 point loss."

"The public recognizes that our immigration system is deeply dysfunctional and they want their elected representatives to do something about it. They understand the challenges at the border, and want humane and orderly solutions to them." - @FrankSharry

Ahead of a busy week, immigration advocates and policy makers are building momentum toward the goal of citizenship for millions of Dreamers, TPS holders, farm workers, and other essential immigrant workers. #WeAreHome
"The campaign to win pathways to citizenship for millions is gaining momentum. The voices and stories of those directly affected are driving the campaign forward." - @FrankSharry
"With Republicans making clear that they are more interested in running on immigration next year than in achieving a legislative breakthrough this year, it’s up to Democrats to use their majority to go big, go fast and change lives." - @FrankSharry

FACT CHECK: @SenRonJohnson (R-WI) picked up the mantle of Republican disinformation about the border yesterday at a hearing on migrant children.
bit.ly/3ya7wxF Image
"The ‘Biden Border Crisis’ narrative is losing steam, even in Foxlandia, so Republican lawmakers are resorting to making stuff up and misrepresenting the data." - @douglasrivlin
"It is clear they are not actually interested in border management, protecting unaccompanied minors seeking refuge or genuinely working in a bipartisan manner to craft the meaningful immigration reform the American people want." - @douglasrivlin
