Good evening! I will begin live-tweeting the #DemDebate2020 at 9PM ET for @CourthouseNews but in the meantime, let's go over some policy points for each of tonight's contenders.
Tonight’s candidates on the debate stage are: @JoeBiden, @BernieSanders, @KamalaHarris, @PeteButtigieg, @MichaelBennet, @SenGillibrand (Kirsten Gillibrand), John @Hickenlooper, @ericswalwell, @Marwilliamson (Marianne Williamson) and @Andrew Yang.
But first, we'll revisit rules quickly: recall, candidates have 60 seconds to respond, 30 seconds for follow-ups. There will be no opening remarks to save time but closing remarks will be delivered by each.

I hope everyone is paying more attention to the health of our democracy in this administration. Today's 2 decisions from the #SupremeCourt have one thing in common: the fight to erase minority communities' political power will continue.
In Dept of Commerce v NY, #SCOTUS kept the #citizenship question on #Census2020 barred, for now.

In Rucho v. Common Cause, SCOTUS threw up its hands and said it couldn't decide partisan gerrymandering cases - allowing the devious process to continue.
The Sec of Commerce (who heads @uscensusbureau) thought it was worth the risk to not count immigrants fearful of responding to a #censuscitizenship question.

The Court, of course, didn't think much of any of his stated justifications, finding them "contrived" and pretextual.

Anyone living along the border could have told them this. Obama Executive Ordered the unConstitutional #DACA legislation, in 2014. Before that the immigration yearly cap was 700K. We immediately absorbed 850K PLUS the yearly cap, & added #Illegals on top of that. We can’t do this
2/ Just like Peak Oil fears, we have reached Peak Immigration with the Caravans. The entire system is overloaded & CA tent cities is proof no one has a plan. More taxes on hardworking American will not fix this. Deportation is the only solution. 22M would take less than 3 months,
3/ given 85% come from #Mexico & South America. Others can be evicted via transport planes, heavy lifters, cargo planes, cargo ships, aircraft carriers, tankers, & container ships. All 22M gone. Including cleaning up the states where Obama stashed #Muslims

Wow, 7 years.

7 years ago, I remember sitting down by myself in my living room.

I listened as the requirements for #DACA were announced.

Little did I know how my life would change. 1/
To qualify for #DACA my undocumented self needed to find documents that documented my life in the US.

I went to the hospital I had gone to since I was a little girl & asked for my entire medical record. I remember the receptionist’s face when I told her I needed a copy ASAP. 2/
I went to my elementary, middle and high schools, looked through hundreds of photos, documents—everything to prove I have been living in the US since I was 2yrs old.

Fast forward to the day I received my work authorization card. Wow, my first official US gov document. #DACA 3/

1/ #StephenMiller has given an exclusive interview to Tucker Carlson's dumbass website for angry white supremacists, because of course he has. I've clicked on it so you don't have to, and here's all you need to know.
2/ Just to get this out up front: Stephen Miller is a 33-yr-old swamp monster whose only major pre-Trump CV item was as press sec for Sen. #JeffSessions. He is not a lawyer & has no serious understanding of imm. policy. His career has been built on bullying & white supremacy.
3/ We now know (as I suspected at the time) that Miller & Steve Bannon pulled a series of all-nighters writing the disastrous first #muslimban--without consulting any lawyers, let alone anyone from the agencies which would be responsible for it. Keep that in mind as we proceed.

If you sense looming anxiety in the #immigration world, it might not just be the chaos of the southern border. We are also waiting for many, many, MANY shoes to drop...

The final public charge regulation.

The proposed reg was published on October 10, 2018, & comments closed in December: federalregister.gov/documents/2018…

As recent DOS numbers preview, this reg could usher in BIG, BIG changes.
A ruling on the #RemaininMexico (#MPP) preliminary injunction.

A hearing in Innovation Law Lab v. Nielsen happened Friday. The ruling could come out any day now. sfchronicle.com/nation/article…

A TX flight attendant with #DACA asked her bosses if she could fly to Mexico. They wrongly said yes. She was detained by @CBP & almost deported to Peru, but suddenly released Friday night after 24 hrs of viral advocacy, in part by @afa_cwa @MesaAirlines
houstonchronicle.com/news/houston-t…
“She has followed the rules, paid taxes, and is currently in process to citizenship,” The United States is her country and we need to bring her home.” @FlyingWithSara
“It is patently unfair for someone to be detained for six weeks over something that is nothing more than an administrative error and a misunderstanding” — CEO @MesaAirlines, which wrongly counseled Selene Saavedra that she could fly to Mexico, despite her concerns of risking DACA

Wow

Where to even start

First, you’re not speaker any more

And your party’s “ideas” were so soundly rejected during the midterm elections that you lost an historic 40 seats

But let’s go a little deeper. Let’s look at Trump’s “accomplishments” and see if we are “better off”
With Trump and the GOP gutting the ACA and fighting Medicaid expansion, people who pay for healthcare are certainly #NotBetterOff

But healthcare and drug companies, and people that own them, sure are. Just ask your friend Chris Collins.

healthaffairs.org/do/10.1377/hbl…
The millions adversely affected by the #GOPTaxScam are #NotBetterOff

On the other hand, all the companies and wealthy CEOs who used the tax cut to buy back stocks and become richer were probably thrilled

1/ I would like to start a DIALOGUE on #SexSlavery #Trafficking in the USA!

Please join me in discussing & dealing with this issue!

In light of Florida’s #Trafficking sting …
2/ It is a serious issue (that I have made fun of myself).

#Sex #trafficking accounted for 6,081 of more than 8,500 reported cases of trafficking in the United States in 2017, according to statistics from the National Human Trafficking Hotline.

3/

The Palm Beach County State Attorney’s Office, which is a part of the multi-agency crackdown, said 100s of people will end up facing charges, with dozens arrested so far.

The Florida sex trafficking sting resulted in nearly 50 arrests and 200 warrants & more are coming!

I told @qzindia where many of my H-1B clients are from: A system so overburdened, hampered by new policy meant to hobble instead of run must be reformed. That starts by starving the beast.

qz.com/india/1536190/…
I've proudly served businesses in Northern Virginia and beyond to help them acquire H-1B visas and stay competitive. It can be hard to find qualified folks.

#H1B isn't perfect, but needs reform, not made unattainable.
That's exactly what the current administration is doing. And yes, it's for the same reason they tried to revoke #DACA, kill #TPS, sent troops to the border, and banned Muslims: they don't want people to come here.

The administration attacks legal immigration.

'In the last of his major national addresses on the Democrat-created border impasse, the president offered the opposing party big wins on immigration. In exchange, he asked for common sense border security measures.

That’s how serious the president was.'

Exerpts from the article by @Harlan:

'But as she did with every offer from him, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) scornfully rejected President Trump’s attempt at compromise.

This time she did it before he even spoke.'
'As the effective leader of one of the country’s major parties, that’s her right.

But she can’t then claim to be interested in compromise or solutions.'

As the posturing of the conference committee begins, just wanted to provide some thoughts that I wish weren't provocative, as both chambers & sides of the aisle begin their talks. I should preface these thoughts to say that no one wants a shutdown at the end of this process. 1/
Part of the challenge in these convos is that both sides are in rhetorical political battles not real policy ones & so because each word could mean 29035 things depending on who is saying it the result is a bunch of fake conversations that result in nothing. And that is sad 2/
It's particularly sad when it's so obvious that a majority of Americans are actually for a narrow bipartisan compromise on increasing security & providing PERMANENT protections to #DACA recipients & #TPS Holders. & yet we find ourselves in an enforcement-only conversation 3/

Today I attended a hearing at the U.S. Court of Appeals regarding our lawsuit that challenged the Trump Administration’s termination of #DACA.
Approximately 42K New Yorkers have benefited from #DACA, allowing them to live & work here without fear of arrest or deportation.

Their presence in our communities is vital to our culture and our economy.

New York wouldn’t be the same without our immigrant communities.
I am grateful to the attorneys & advocates who have passionately fought for #DACA and I will always stand up and fight for immigrants at every turn.

Okay so here is some more procedural color:
- the next SCOTUS conference is 2/15 (this is the earliest next date a decision to take #DACA case could@come)
- Court could also relist it for another conference they have about 3 of those a month apparently, so basically all those 1/
Become potential “take the case” dates.
- Those dates hit a culmination point in June when they make decisions on things before summer break.
- other intervening timeline elements include other DACA cases in other circuits, those rulings could give other procedural options 2/
For DOJ to seek the court’s review.
- however - and with the caveat that the SCOTUS can basically do as they please- it seems that all of these options IF the court granted cert would result in a Fall hearing (Octoberish)
- Decisions from fall hearings don’t exactly 3/
