📌1. Hey @CNN @MSNBC @ABC @CBSNews @NPR @washingtonpost @nytimes et al, can we talk? Is one of these groups of people more important than the other? All of them were targeted with a deadly threat but most people don’t know that because you didn’t report it #MAGABomber
2. This isn’t an attack, it’s an attempt to help you understand why we chant “fake news” and maybe, just maybe if any of you read it, you’ll admit you aren’t really as fair as you think? @realDonaldTrump is right, we can all do better.
3. Not going to talk about the guys arrested because that really shouldn’t be the focus but two men were both arrested and complaints were filed for five felony charges. Yup, and no one even knows the name of the guy that sent Ricin, why? #CesarSayoc will trend though.

Breaking:
The Trump Administration’s “public charge” rule targeting immigrant families is cruel and harmful to children. Citizen children will lose Medicaid/CHIP coverage as a result of this harsh new rule, reversing the gains we've worked so hard to achieve. 1/
One-fourth of children in this country have at least one immigrant parent, and 90% of those kids were born in the USA. Trump’s “public charge” rule will punish immigrant parents for enrolling their kids in health care. 2/
All children need health coverage so they can grow up to be healthy, successful adults. Families should not be punished for doing what’s right for their kids. #KeepKidsCovered #KeepFamiliesTogether

Immigration & Customs Enforcement—more commonly known as ICE, is a law enforcement agency of the federal government of the U.S. tasked to enforce the immigration laws of the United States & to investigate criminal and terrorist activity of foreign nationals residing in the U.S.
ℹ️ICE has two primary components: Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) and Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO). It is an agency under the jurisdiction of Homeland Security and was established in 2003 following the 9/11 tragedy.

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/U.S._Immi…
ICE was designed to keep us safe from terrorists—for instance, the terrorists who took over the planes on 9/11 were living undetected in the U.S. for over a year.

Pls read this thoroughly before commenting. The Trump administration has corrupted this agency to do horrific acts.

Because of #CatchAndRelease a sexual predator was let go because of #KeepFamiliesTogether they could not separate him from the 13yr old he claimed as his daughter and because of #SanctuaryState CA he won’t be deported for raping her. This is the #OpenBorders legacy #BuildTheWall
Congratulations @TheDemocrats you enabled a thirteen year old girl to be brutally raped and abused but don’t worry, he’s safe in California and will be released into our communities because #AbolishIce right? You are all sick.
Cover your ears liberals, @ChuckGrassley AND @SenFeinstein have requested an investigation into abuse at detention centers that went IGNORED during the Obama admin😱Including detaining children in handcuffs where was everyone? The complaints started in 2014 #KeepFamiliesTogether

Here’s what news won’t show despite data being provided to them via @SecNielsen and @DHSgov it’s how dangerous illegal border crossing is. While @TheDemocrats continue to say Trump Admin is “anti-immigration” the real truth is admin wants safety #keepfamiliestogether
Illegal boarder crossing is wildly dangerous @TheDemocrats put lives in danger by promoting it. People really do DIE what’s wrong with a united message of LEGAL IMMIGRATION? That’s the best way to protect families #keepfamiliestogether
STOP putting immigrants at risk, STOP pretending it’s okay for children to attempt the journey alone and STOP harassing #CBP they are saving lives and if we #BuildTheWall even more will be. dhs.gov/news/2018/07/1…

My husband saw a friend yesterday who is a swing Republican. He wanted to know if Dems r running on trump impeachment or have an actual platform.
I’ve attached a thread on some key points w/ expansion of ideas. Please let me know if I’ve missed anything. Feel free to share.
This is a solid platform that enables us to move forward as a Nation for all to prosper. I don’t think Dem leaders focus enough on these things. MSM is too busy covering daily assaults on our democracy.
Get big money & special interest groups out of Government (especially the NRA). Only way to truly represent the will of the people.

I'm going to let you in on a little secret...

The REAL reason why Democrats are pushing to abolish ICE.

And it has NOTHING to do with #KeepFamiliesTogether

#QAnon #MAGA #SaveTheChildren #GoodbyeDemocrats #WalkAway #Trump @realDonaldTrump @POTUS #ChildTrafficking
Flashback to December 2017. Politico drops this bombshell story. As part of the #IranDeal, the Hussein admin agreed to look the other way while Hezbollah trafficked $100s of millions worth of drugs through the southern border with aid frm cartels.

#QAnon

The DEA caught onto this massive drug trafficking/money laundering scheme years earlier, but met fierce resistance from the Hussein admin as the #IranDeal was being formed.

This @QuinnipiacPoll everyone is clinging to is a direct reflection of the news, it’s borderline obsessed with “the children” #FakeNews wins for refusing to cover #KeepFamiliesTogether has been an issue for over a decade, they know that. #ColdAnger
poll.qu.edu/national/relea…
For starters the spread leans left but that seems to be common in polls now. Hard to trust any of them actually.
Here’s what’s interesting that no one is reporting: 91% think civility is a serious problem that’s with all politics not just @realDonaldTrump sorry libs.

30,000 protesters showed up to the #KeepFamiliesTogether March at the WH. The March was mostly paid for and promoted by Soros / Moveon .org

This is why I have qualms about #KeepFamiliesTogether (in indefinite, inhumane conditions) as a slogan: it should be #ReleaseFamiliesTogether with support/social services into the community. Being clear about demands is important.
We know that cash bail or intrusive monitoring aren't needed to get people to turn up for court dates (Brooklyn Bail Fund has great stats on % of people who turn up -- the best intervention is literally giving clients a prepaid cellphone and a court date reminder).
There is a wider call for abolition of detention that needs to happen. It isn't just the immigration system that separates children from parents; the carceral domestic criminal justice system also forces guilty plea bargains from parents trying to avoid having kids taken.

Democrats are really bad at this game.
We run from one catastrophe to the next with our hair on fire, and our rhetoric becomes increasingly desperate in the process. We fail to understand regional politics and how our rhetoric is used against us in purple districts.
#AbolishICE
There are plenty of things about #ICE that need to be changed. But the only way to change that is by being in power. How can we not see that the idea to #AbolishICE can be used as a broad message of @TheDemocrats being anit-law enforcement and for #OpenBorders???
Just today, I was listening to the @MSignorile show, and he promoted #AbolishICE as a good slogan for Dems to run on. I would ask Mr Signorile to look at the political calculus for #RedState Dems who'll be forced to defend that rhetoric and oppose #Trump's #SCOTUS pick

During his campaign, AMLO encouraged mass immigration to the US, claiming it was a 'human right' for all North Americans.

The avowed soft-Marxist has earned the name 'Hugo Chavez 2.0' for running on ideals such as: amnesty to all drug cartels, no longer working with US immigration enforcement & of course encouraging mass migration of MX citizens to the US.

So beautiful seeing so many in the streets this wknd to #keepfamiliestogether & #FreeOurFuture - last week I wrote about why these fights are directly linked to the #AbolishPolice/#AbolishPrisons fight blackyouthproject.com/if-family-sepa…
I know it is hard sometimes as Black organizers to watch communities we have attempted to engage, only to be ignored, show up in such large numbers when Black ppl aren’t the specific center of the action.
Now is a good time post massive action to make these connections loudly & clearly. To say it out loud. To say it often. To ask our comrades to say it too.

🚧 1.Let's take a little trip down memory lane @NancyPelosi @SenSchumer @SenGillibrand because it appears as though you may have a memory problem. In 2014 there were children in cages, 80% of which weren't even receiving adequate food and water #AbolishICE #WomenDisobey
2. 2014 Brian Williams reported on 52k children cramped into small facilities and while "taking children from Mothers" is never said listen closely when they say ADULTS are deported, kids stay? @NBCNews knows this and it was @RepMcCaul (R) that was worried #KeepFamiliesTogether
3. The @ACLU wrote to the Obama Admin in 2014 complaining children, including infants were starved, kept in "freezers" and sexually abused they included 116 confessions from children. #KeepFamiliesTogether acluaz.org/sites/default/…

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.

DB plans to use his multi-platform media entity, Shareblue, to disseminate disinfo to damage #Trump and his supporters.

I went to @dcdmv to change the name on my license and a frontline worker threatened me with ICE over a paperwork technicality. Thread:
I'm a few months into my legal name change. I'm done with the courthouse piece - had a judge hearing last week. Today, I waited for hours at a Social Security office to get the name on my social security card changed. I got a temporary paper while the new card comes in the mail.
I wasn't sure if I could use the temporary paper to reach my next milestone: a photo ID with my new name. At @dcdmv today, the worker told me I could not. When I asked why, she said, "You don't want ICE at your doorstep, do you?"
