Today I attended a training session about accompanying immigrants to ICE check-ins/asylum hearings through @NewSanctuaryNYC.

I'd like to share some learnings/inspiration from the evening about why accompaniment matters, and how we treat our immigrant friends--
The accompaniment training was held at a beautiful Manhattan Jewish temple, and was attended by people of all ages and faiths.

It started off with the Rabbi declaring #AbolishICE!

"I believe in sacred trouble-making and agitation," he said.
Important basic about deportation proceedings: Immigration is a CIVIL issue (not criminal), so no attorney is guaranteed. That's why, if a person is unable to obtain legal defense, simply having an American citizen to bear witness to ICE's dishonest practices is crucial.

Rep. Jayapal should be on every TV network. Her account of human rights abuses in our country is too important to get buried.
A quote from @RepJayapal's story that continues to haunt me:

"Some of [the mothers] heard their children screaming for them in the next room. Not a single one of them had been allowed to say goodbye or explain to them what was happening.”
Another quote from @RepJayapal I can't get out of my head:

"One woman said ‘I want to be with my children’ and the Border Patrol agent said: ‘You will never see your children again. Families don’t exist here. You won’t have a family anymore.’ ”

men: this is the part where you LISTEN.
it’s cool that you’re “horrified” and “my god!” and “disgusted,” but let us take the lead here.
i don’t care about your take. i don’t care about your feelings on schneiderman’s statement. LISTEN to WOMEN. ignoring us for literally ever is what got countless serial abusers into office.
