Seriously, can you imagine waking up this morning and reading the news and then being like "bye honey, gotta go break up a family and put someone's mom in a detention center where she'll probably get sick and die."
ICE is a plague.
We have a list of 20 people in ICE detention ready to be released, if we can just raise the money to get them out on bond.
But we’re almost out of time. ICE facilities in NY are about to go on lockdown.
ANNOUNCEMENT: This December we’re coming for ICE with everything we’ve got, bigger & bolder than this summer. We are going to rise up and throw our bodies into the gears of the system in memory of every ancestor missing from our family tree because bystanders failed to act.
This summer, a small group of Jews channeled our fury at ICE into an action at a detention center in NJ. We accidentally set off the largest-ever wave of direct action by Jews & allies against ICE. The only thing missing was a blueprint for the future... That’s about to change.
What's next? A huge wave of actions in December. We’re going to start with mass coordinated mobilizations in strategic cities, and then kick off distributed local actions nationwide, taking the fight to ICE & their enablers on the level that's needed to *actually* shut them down.
HAPPENING NOW: #JewsAgainstICE protesting Devereux Advanced Behavioral Health in Rosemont, PA, to demand in solidarity with @Vamos_Juntos_ that Devereux cancel its $14 million plans to open an ORR detention center for 42 immigrant children in Devon, PA.
We are protesting child detention camps opening in our own backyards in PA. We are protesting corporations and organizations profiting from collaborating and working with DHS and ICE. We are saying #NeverAgainParaNadie.
BREAKING: #JewsAgainstICE are blocking the entrance to Devereux Behavioral Health. We are demanding, as Jews who have heard the message of #NeverAgain our whole lives, that Devereux end its plan to build a $14 million child detention center.
LIVE: We are occupying the Rhode Island Statehouse, until state leaders commit to closing the Wyatt ICE Detention Center, banning private prisons, and cutting off the supply of information from state agencies to ICE. We're here and we're not leaving.
The atrocities happening at T Don Hutto detention center in TX—and across the country—mirror those that have happened to many of our Jewish ancestors. When we say Never Again, we mean Never Again for ANYONE. Here, we explain the pictures of ancestors affixed to the sukkah:
We are now carrying our sukkah towards the detention center. The 50 of us are here as thunderstorm clouds gather, on this holiday of shelter, to demand shelter for all people.
ICE officers are reaching out about quitting their jobs.
ICE contracts are being cancelled.
From Atlanta to Austin to Boston & across the country, we're taking on the deportation machine, and we’re just getting started. Support us so we can keep going:
We’re here outside the Massachusetts State House in Boston in support of @MovimientoCosecha, with immigrants and allies. We demand that legislators follow through on their promises to protect immigrants in the state of Massachusetts. THREAD:
The undocumented community has been fighting for driver’s licenses for 15 years, and still lawmakers have not delivered on promises to grant access to licenses regardless of immigration status.
Last month, @MovimientoCosecha held a quinceanera to “celebrate” 15 years of fighting for this right. They've been delivering cake to lawmakers in the weeks since, one piece for every year the immigrant community has waited for licenses. Today they'll deliver the 15th piece.
