“But it took my uncle’s friend’s wife only 3 months!”

🤦‍♀️Since Trump was elected, processing times for immigration applications having significantly increased. Don’t go off of how long it took some random friend or relative. Times have changed.

Wait for it! I blow a GASKET on set — sick and tired of the Right’s argument that capitalism is a machine to be left alone, at the expense of all the innocent, marginalized, and deliberately excluded people by companies in the name of the glorious bottom line. NO MORE I say. We cannot allow private companies to ramroll basic human equity and dignity just because it’s “capitalism at work”. Social Justice is real and here to stay — why not embrace her with a hug instead of ignore her existence as you do with everyone else who doesn’t share your gender and skin color.

Catch me on @chasingnews tonight! Blame it on the summer heat, but I was particularly impassioned today —- we discussed new #nj bill curtailing free speech on public education campuses, a black woman who was told to COVER HERSELF WITH A BLANKET Bc her clothes were “inappropriate” on an American Airlines flight, and a new study which revealed race and income disparity in accessibility to bike share in NYC. Phew, that was a mouthful 🙃🙃🙃. Now you know why I was heated?? 🔥

The @washingtonpost first reported on ICE’s use of facial recognition technology against two state driver’s license databases: Vermont and Washington. This is a blatant breach of privacy and a bait and switch by states who claim to protect and advocate for immigrants. Instead of cowering and allowing ICE to chill us from getting the right to drive, let’s push back! We must demand better from our states and governors who we elect to protect us against the tyranny of the federal government.
.
.
.
.
📣if your state gives licenses to undocumented immigrants➡️contact your state reps and demand assurances that ICE will not be given access to your private information
.
.
.
.
📣if your state does not give drivers licenses to undocumented immigrants➡️demand privacy protections be incorporated in the law/bill that is soon to come (many of these states have bills on the table and advocates fighting for legislation)
.
.
.
.
The answer is not to hide, the answer is to continue to fight. 💪🏼💪🏼💪🏼

“The Trump administration is attempting to sidestep it’s legal and moral obligations to asylum seekers by strong arming Mexico into preventing Central Americans from even making it to the US border.” - Ben Johnson, President of AILA

This fails to get to the root of the problem and offers NO REAL SOLUTIONS!!!
