So the shirt was made on zazzle by a friend. Does anyone know how we could sell it to raise money for a worthy charity? I’ve never done anything like that.

Last night, #QAnon posted this, stating that there will be a coordinated effort to ramp up violent attacks ( like the Gazette shooter) in order to frame pro @POTUS supporters. David Brock of Shareblue is at the 'nucleus' of it all.

#BREAKING We just sued the Trump Administration to end the cruel and illegal policy of tearing apart families, reunite parents and children, and ensure that this never happens again. #FamilesBelongTogether
As a result of this unconstitutional policy, a mother — now in Hyannis after an asylum officer found she faces persecution in Brazil — has been separated from her 9 year old son for almost a month.

Her child is still held in a shelter in Chicago. #FamiliesBelongTogther
Two Guatemalan children were separated from their mother and held in Michigan for five weeks. The children have been reunited with their father here in Massachusetts, but their mother is still being held in Texas. #FamiliesBelongTogther

Just wrapping up from a long day at a border immigration detention center today, where along with a rock star team of women attorneys we interviewed more than 100 people. /1
Just between the three of us, @ofelial1 @SEDLAW15 and I talked to more than 30. Two most notable observations: /2
First, each and every one of the people we spoke with who has crossed the border had been separated from their child. Every single last one. That’s pretty dramatic in its own right. /3

THREAD: How do you respond when a Trump supporter says the administration is simply enforcing the laws? You can’t simply point to a single document and saying “see, it’s right here. They’re lying.” So, here is my attempt.
When asked for evidence of policies that require the separation of families, the White House refers to laws determining what happens to unaccompanied immigrant minors.
The thing is, none of the children in question would be deemed unaccompanied if the Trump administration did not decide to prosecute their parents. This is a policy created by Trump administration.

Thread: How did we get here?
In 2015, I shook President Obama’s hand, thanked him for DACA, and asked him to reverse course & close the for-profit baby jails (also known as “family detention centers”) he opened in Dilley & Karnes City, Texas. What he said shook me to my core 1/
2/ Specifically, I told him, “It’s wrong. And it’s going to be a stain on your legacy.” He stopped moving on to the next person in the rope line and looked back at me. I’d gotten his attention. He turned back, looked at me and “Are you an immigration lawyer?” “Yes”
3/ Just days before, President Obama’s senior immigration policy advisor @cecmunoz had received a chilly welcome during her keynote address to the @AILANational annual conference attendees in National Harbor. She was greeted with silent protest & signs saying #EndFamilyDetention
