THREAD: Let's say you haven't been following everything #KavanaughHearings related. Here's what you need to know: this guy is a liar and under no circumstances should he be a Supreme Court Justice.
Let me break this down because it's actually kind of astonishing the lengths Kavanaugh and Republicans have gone to conceal how right wing this guy really is. #StopKavanaugh
Republican fought to conceal secret emails that reveal his true feelings on #RoevWade. And how *does* he really feel about Roe? He believes the Supreme Court can overturn it. #StopKavanaugh
Do you need receipts? I GOT 'EM. #StopKavanaugh…
SCOTUS is the body that sets legal precedent. If Kavanaugh believes that the Court could overturn the case, then he does not believe that Roe is, in fact, “settled law,” like he claims. #StopKavanaugh
We have all the proof we need to definitively say that this guy lied about his views on abortion. Kavanaugh doesn’t believe in a woman’s right to an abortion. How can @SenatorCollins @lisamurkowski vote yes on this pick?!
But the richest part of this is that this isn't the only thing he lied about. What else ya hiding, Brett? #StopKavanaugh
Kavanaugh tried to hide that he was very involved in the confirmation fight for Charles Pickering, whose appointment was opposed by a who's who of civil rights groups because of his ruling around a hate crime. #StopKavanaugh…
This guy is so full of lies he actually lied under oath. A Supreme Court Justice nominee perjured himself in his confirmation hearing. Sit with that for a second. What'd he lie about? --> #StopKavanuagh
Okay, but maybe lying about some appointments isn't enough for you. You should reconsider that, but how about some racial discrimination? This guy really doesn't like people of color! #StopKavanaugh
Brett Kavanaugh is on the record as being against programs that support:
❌Native Americans
❌Native Hawaiians
❌Affirmative Action recipients

How could he claim impartiality in any case dealing with a person of color?

OH, and he believes in racial profiling because underneath this suit is a white hood:… #StopKavanaugh
Some of Kavanaugh's other greatest hits:
🇺🇸 stealing documents from a United States Senator
🇺🇸campaign finance positions that have been called "strange and dangerous"
🇺🇸supporting warrantless surveillance
This guy is a disaster for the Supreme Court and our democracy. But today was a game changer. We know most of this info because of the courage of @maziehirono @KamalaHarris @CoryBooker. Complete American heroes. #StopKavanuagh
Today, in an effort to save our democracy, @maziehirono and @CoryBooker risked being expelled from the Senate for releasing "confidential documents." This is a complete and total BAMF move. #StopKavanaugh
Do yourself a favor and watch this incredible moment: #StopKavanaugh
And this incredible moment (even for @SenBooker, this is really something): #StopKavanaugh
This is the courage we needed to see from @SenateDemocrats. Now, we have to do our part and keep the pressure on. If you were making calls, make more. If you were handmaiding, bring some friends. If you went to a protest, get arrested. #StopKavanaugh
WE CAN WIN THIS. And the most important people who need to feel the pressure are @lisamurkowski @SenatorCollins. Our democracy is crumbling -- do you really want to be that person who says "well they don't listen to us anyway?" #StopKavanaugh
If you are from Maine or Alaska, if you have friends in Maine or Alaska, if you have business interests in Maine or Alaska, if you have a vacation home in Maine or Alaska -- GET HYSTERICAL. We must, must stop this nomination. #StopKavanaugh
Call Congress at 202-224-3121 and tell them you want them to #StopKavanaugh from being on the Supreme Court because he's a liar and a racist. Otherwise, we're gonna end up with the end of our democracy because of this guy. </FIN>

Are you confused about #WhereAreTheChildren? Of course you are. Your friendly immigrants’ rights advocate (reporting to you from vacation because the kids are counting on us to get this right). (THREAD)
“Did the government lose 1500 children that are now missing?”

...sort of. 1500 of the 7000 children who came here alone, mostly from Central America, are “missing” because the government couldn’t find them after they attempted to get in touch with them:…
“Ok. But #WhereAreTheChildren? Are they safe?”

We don’t know.

Some ran away, some didn’t pick up the phone at their last known number. Some likely ended up in human trafficking. Some likely reunited with their families. We may never track them down.
