1/ "Go Back" has been the rallying cry of xenophobes throughout US history, with #immigrants of color being the most targeted. My #ChineseAmerican family heard this during #Chinese Exclusion.
2/ #MexicanAmericans, including US citizens heard "Go Back" when they were being deported en masse during the #GreatDepression.
3/ #JapaneseAmericans, two-thirds of whom were US citizens, heard "Go Back" when they were being forced from their homes, incarcerated, and asked to fight and die for the US during #WorldWarTwo.

Seuls 3 élus républicains ont condamné à cette heure comme racistes les tweets de #Trump sur les 4 élues progressistes démocrates.
Parmi eux:
le seul représentant républicain afro-américain de la Chambre, Will Hurd.
Le seul sénateur républicain afro-américain Tim Scott.
2) Faits, sur ce qu'est le parti républicain en 2019, #Trump ou pas:
. 4 représentants républicains afro-américains élus à la Chambre depuis le début du XXIe siècle (435 représentants élus tous les 2 ans)
. 2 sénateurs républicains afro-américains élus au Sénat (1881-2019)
3) Les républicains ne réagiront pas en majorité aux tweets racistes sans aucune ambiguïté possible de #Trump d'abord car sa ligne nativiste et identitaire blanche a gagné dans le parti, achevant la mue d'1 parti intégrant avec Nixon puis Reagan l'héritage ségrégationniste du Sud

1 A photographic look at Pence @VP visit to 2 TX detention centers w 7 #GOP senators. A thread about photo access and visual framing in an age of hate and hysteria. The entourage facing US handiwork without game faces. (screenshot: @Reuters)
2 Let's be mindful of goal: to counteract shocking pix from last 2 urgent @DHSOIG (random) inspection visual reports, the @HispanicCaucus pix from Clint, & #BorderPatrol FB scandal. Paradoxically, aim is to show previous scenes inaccurate, yet still "tough stuff" (& blame Dems).
3 One of goals of @VP trip was to insulate/defend #BorderPatrol from reports about its almost 10k member private racially/sexually toxic FB group. Did address this in context of border visit day before in San Diego in response to q's. Via @joshdawsey @washingtonpost pool report.

1) #Breaking TRES important à 2 titres.
D'1 part le président US #Trump renvoie les 4 représentantes progressistes (AOC, Pressley, Tlaib et Omar) à leurs présumées naissances étrangères, leur ordonnant de taire leurs critiques sur le gouvernement US ou de "rentrer chez elles"...
2) Or, 1 seule des représentantes en question (Ilhan Omar) n'est pas née aux #EtatsUnis. Mais pour le président US #Trump, si vous êtes née de parents étrangers immigrés (Tlaib), portoricains (AOC) voire Afro-Américains (Pressley), vous n'êtes pas quand même pas citoyenne US.
3) S'il ne faut pas commenter tout tweet de #Trump, celui-ci est 1 véritable AVEU, très signifiant politiquement. Pour le président US, quand vous êtes enfant d'immigrés ou réfugié, vous n'êtes pas étatsunien et vous restez 1 étranger. Idem pour Portoricains et Afro-Américains.

Italian weekly magazine @espressonline reporters @GiovanniTizian @StefanoVergine wrote about the October 18 meeting between Salvini’s aide & Russians back in February. They probably had the audio because they quoted from it but didn’t publish it. The news was largely ignored. 1/n
At the time Salvini vehemently denied the allegations. Now #buzzfeednews @AlbertoNardelli published the audio and the media is finally talking about it. Unsurprisingly Salvini denied the allegations again and Savoini (the aide) said the audio is "a manipulated fake scam." 2/n
The opposition asked the Interior Minister to address the allegations in parliament. But Senate Speaker Maria Elisabetta Alberti Casellati rejected 3 motions saying "the Senate is not a place to discuss journalistic rumors." 3/n

Earlier today I was arrested with 17 other Jews and allies in the Cannon congressional building in Washington, DC, as part of a #NeverAgainIsNow protest against the US government's detention and abuse of immigrants in American-run concentration camps around the country.
As an American Jew, I grew up hearing NEVER AGAIN. Never again can we allow the horrors of the Holocaust. Never again to death camps and forced labor. Never again to ripping children from their parents. Never again to weaponizing abuse, indignity, and dehumanization.
As an American Jew, I also grew up hearing where the world fell short; where humanity failed to live up to that rallying cry of NEVER AGAIN: Cambodia. Bosnia. Rwanda. Darfur. I learned that NEVER AGAIN is both a call to action and a reminder of the cost of inaction.

#ClimateAlarmists ignore the fact that all of their propaganda efforts to scare people into submitting to expensive CO2 reduction schemes are having less than no restraining effect on the one & a half degrees of #GlobalWarming over the last two centuries.…
Nothing being done now is having any effect on reducing CO2. We could help Nature do it the old fashioned way by planting a trillion trees. But that takes time.
#ClimateAlarmists prefer preventing the poorest people from trying to stay alive during winter.…
Scientists are proving that active geothermal sources around the globe are causing most of the glacier melting & ocean warming. And more of that heat should be harnessed to benefit humanity, as has been done throughout human history.

This interview!
Apparently there's no one under 65 on Biden's team with any influence to tell him that 71% of Americans support #M4A among other things.
Exclusive: Biden expresses skepticism of Democrats' leftward tilt and AOC's mass appeal…
#Biden seems not to have even read the demographics from 2016 or the issues voters prioritized in 2018 (climate, healthcare, immigration, guns). He resorts to referring to AOC as "bright" but "not representative," which is how he famously referred to Obama in 2007.
#Biden also says he wasn't prepared for #KamalaHarris to come after him because she knows him & knew his late son, Beau. (He needs to stop using Beau for sympathy points. He should reference his living son, Hunter, who gave a heart-wrenching interview about his addiction.)

If you're reading this, I have just been arrested with 17 other Jews and allies outside of the ICE Detention Facility in Boston, protesting the US government's detention and dehumanizing abuse of immigrants in concentration camps at the border and around the country.
Growing up Jewish, I heard the message over and over from my elders: NEVER AGAIN. Honestly, I heard it so often, I got a little impatient, as kids sometimes do. I thought: I get it, I get it, you don't have to keep saying it. Obviously the Holocaust should never happen again.
Surely everyone understands this now.

I am heartbroken to have grown to understand what they already knew. We are now a country locking children in cages, forcing grown women to drink from toilets, forcing men to live in cells so cramped they can't lie down to sleep.

Castro, Booker, and Beto have now each elaborated on their positions with respect to 1325 misdemeanor illegal entry prosecutions.'

Although there are distinctions between those positions, they may largely be without difference. /1
8 USC 1325 makes it a criminal misdemeanor to enter the country without authorization. It's been the law for 90 years but was rarely used until the final years of the George W. Bush administration. /2
This chart from @TRACReports shows the spike in ALL #immigration prosecutions (not just 1325) in 2008, followed by high prosecution numbers during the early Obama years and a sustained drop late in 2014 that carried through until a sharp increase under Trump. /3

THREAD: Body Language Analysis No. 4388: Donald Trump regarding Drowned Father and Daughter in the Rio Grande • #Nonverbal #EmotionalIntelligence #BodyLanguage #BodyLanguageExpert #DonaldTrump #Drowning #RioGrade #Immigration
1/ Óscar Alberto Martínez Ramírez and his toddler daughter, Angie Valeri drowned last week while trying to cross the Rio Grande River. Óscar and his family had journeyed from El Salvador - escaping violence and seeking refuge.
2/ A photograph of Óscar & Valeria, side-by-side, her arm draped around his neck tragically humanizes the Central American diaspora. It reminds many of an iconic image of Aylan Kurdi, a three-year-old Syrian refugee, whose body washed up on Turkey's shores, near Bodrum, in 2015.

3/ #immigrant children have an eye disease unidentifiable by the CDC. Once these people disappear into the interior of America, these children will attend our PUBLIC SCHOOLS. That means your children or grandchildren will bring home these diseases to YOU.

#Immigration bills signed by @GovPritzker as Chicago area and other cities anticipate #iceraids starting Sunday @ICEgov… via @dailyherald
Instead of helping their own homeless folks or cleaning up the streets, they also want to include this: "Allow undocumented and transgender students to receive Monetary Award Program grants and institutional aid at public colleges." (Notice they worked transgender into this).
If your friends, family, and co-workers aren't woke to these agendas, it's time to wake them up. Like I keep saying, eyes on legislation - this is where they will go for the jugular.

Our lawyer @olcplc Philip Ellison talks to @detroitnews
about our court win bringing us closer to unsealing the #TantonPapers.

These papers shine a light on the ideological underpinnings of the anti-immigrant movement, currently in the White House ear.…
This weekend we may see massive coordinated #ICEraids and yes, we have to #ProtectEachOther from rogue #immigration enforcement.

It's a fire, and has to be put out, but where is the flamethrower?

The organizations that embraced white nationalism as immigration policy.
It's time to reign them in. We've tried it their way for years.

And we ended up jailing babies.

Enough. Move over. You're not driving this country anymore.

Not interested in debate or conversation. You ruined America's welcoming beacon.

You jail babies.

‼️THREAD: How to Prepare Yourself for an Immigration Raid‼️

It is important to be prepared and to know your rights and your family’s rights in case of a raid or other encounter with ICE or local law enforcement.

#Immigration #FamilyRaid
Everybody has rights under the U.S. Constitution that you may exercise in such a situation. There are also a number of steps you can take ahead of any encounter to minimize panic, family separation, and loss of financial assets.

#Immigration #FamilyRaid
‼️The 5 Most Important Things You Can Do During A Raid‼️

1️⃣ Stay calm and do not run away

2️⃣ Remain silent, or tell the ICE agent that you want to remain silent. If you do speak, do not lie

3️⃣ Ask to speak with a lawyer
