Sunday = family fun day! My family and I are extremely lucky to have been born in this country. We have never known extreme poverty; we don’t live in fear of gang violence or drug cartels; we will never have to face the choice of staying in our home country and being killed, or making the dangerous trek to a foreign country where we will face outright racism and opposition at every turn.

We didn’t do anything to deserve the privileges we currently have. If I was faced with the horrific situation occurring in central and South America, I would pay any cost, and break any law standing in my way to ensure my family was safe.
While I can’t fix the major problems currently besieging the homelands of migrants (more accurately refugees) seeking asylum in our country, I can support the work of BORDER ANGELS as they treat migrants with basic human dignity- providing clean water along desert routes, assisting is border rescues, and providing free legal aid to those who need it most. As I prepare for my 50 mile trail run this September, I am asking for donations of $1 per mile - any amount, no matter how small is greatly appreciated.

Wishing you a Happy Sunday with some food for thought. Many of the misconstrued perceptions of our immigrant communities are based purely out of false information and alarmist news reporting. It’s so important to always question what you hear and see. Get informed, open your hearts, and always remember that we are ALL human beings.

My heart is still heavy.
Yesterday day I traveled from Los Angeles to the border in San Diego with a group of compassionate people to learn more about the pertinent issues surrounding the current humanitarian crisis on migrant children and families. We spoke with teachers and concerned local leaders who are on a hunger strike to bring awareness to topic #hungry4freedom. We visited Chicano Park and then attended a round table discussion and heard from members of the ACLU, Casa Cornelia Law Center, and other community leaders. I ached the most when I heard a young man tell his story of how his parents were deported when he was ten. Also when two junior high aged girls spoke on how their parents were taken away from them one morning while they were getting ready for school. Their recently released mother quietly and bravely stood next to them. The expression on her face spoke volumes. Thank you all for sharing your experiences.
Seeking asylum in this country is not illegal. Separating families is inhumane.
Thank you @elsamariecollins, @yolandaselenewm, and @theideateur for organizing.
Thanks @kaylaewell for inviting me! #thisisabouthumanity #familiesbelongtogether #borderangels #casacornelia #chicanofederation #aclu

It’s a really sad day when human beings are treated as less than such, and this is far from an isolated incident from within ICE detention centers. Demand change, no woman deserves this treatment during such a physically and emotionally traumatic event like a miscarriage.

"Pregnant Women Say They Miscarried In Immigration Detention And Didn't Get The Care They Needed."
.
@buzzfeednews article.
.
Pregnant women in immigration detention under the Trump administration say they have been denied medical care, shackled around the stomach, and abused.
.
“An official arrived and they said it was not a hospital and they weren’t doctors. They wouldn’t look after me. I realized I was losing my son. It was his life that I was bleeding out. I was staining everything. I spent about eight days just lying down. I couldn’t eat, I couldn’t do anything. I started crying and crying and crying.”
.
About a week after speaking with her, she gave up her fight for asylum, accepted voluntary departure, and was deported back to El Salvador. She said she wouldn’t have come to the US seeking a safer life if she’d known what would happen.

Yesterday, July 13th, on behalf of @goop I joined a group of incredible people on a trek to the US/Mexico border in San Diego to listen to asylum seekers who have been separated from their families and to activists and pro-bono lawyers who are fighting—24-hours—for their justice. And I did just that: I listened. I learned.
We visited brave teachers in Vista Terrace Neighborhood Park on a hunger strike protest. We listened to an incendiary @borderangelsofficial in Chicano Park to learn about their efforts delivering water to asylum seekers so they don't die of dehydration. We imbibed the stories and saw the unyielding gumption and force of lawyers, representatives, and associates from @chicanofederation @sdaclu @casacornelialawcenter working to fight for asylum seekers.
Ultimately, I learned: #ThisIsAboutHumanity And even the smallest-seeming action, perhaps a few minutes of listening to someone's story, can help. Furthermore, you can call Congress to #EndFamilyDetention and #StopSeparation donate to an admirable non-profit, or help fund travel costs for reuniting families.
My heartfelt thanks to @elsamariecollins @yolandaselenewm and @bunnyzwr for inviting us to join, informing us, and for arranging for the donation of comfort care backpacks to the children and families, to @tamaramellon for the donations, and to every single outstanding person I met on the ride down (most of whom are tagged) and throughout the day.

Thank you @bunnyzwr and @elsamariecollins for the opportunity to bear witness and become more informed about the human rights abuses taking place on the border • As many of you may know the US has issued a “zero tolerance” policy - and now children seeking asylum are being taken from their parents and placed into detention centers. This cruelty began with Trump and Sessions and was met with massive public resistance - and although Trump has since signed an executive order to put a stop to family separation, thousands of children are still detained. The Trump administration did NOT properly record the information needed to reunite these children with their parents. Worse still, some of the parents have been deported and have no way of getting back to their babies. It is important to remember that seeking asylum is NOT illegal in the US. • check out my stories for more information • #keepfamiliestogether #thisisabouthumanity #borderangels #lovehasnoborders

CALL TO ACTION 📣📣📣 ICE is currently holding individual detainees with NO legal basis.  Pursuant to the recent Supreme Court case of Pereira v. Sessions, judges have been terminating people's removal proceedings due to a lack of jurisdiction.  In plain English, this means there is no deportation case in front of an immigration judge (nor was there ever). Despite calls and requests by attorneys and families, including attorneys working with Border Angels, ICE officers have either not returned any calls or are blatantly refusing to release these detainees.  ICE IS HOLDING PEOPLE IN A FOR-PROFIT DETENTION CENTER WITH NO LEGAL BASIS.  Yes, this is facism (when government officials do not follow a judge's order) and yes this is absolutely about money and profiting off of the detention of brown people.  Please join us in calling the Otay Mesa Detention Center at (619) 671 8724 or the ICE San Diego Field Office at (619) 436-0410 demanding that detainees whose cases have been terminated by a judge be released immediately.

Beyond proud of the #HumanityFirst coalition. First of many actions calling out those profitting from family separations and the deportations! Including deported vets. These companies are hiding in plain sight. Today we came for GEO GROUP, the recent reciepient of a high dollar ICE contract. Here’s the deal though, they aren’t just making the money from our government - they are sending it back by donating to politicians. So electeds you are on notice too, if you accepted money from GEO GROUP we are asking you give it back or send it to legal funds assisting our immigrant community. Get ready we are just starting! #abolishice #occupyice @caforprogress #veterans #deportedveterans #borderangels #chirla #mrla #cafp #iceoutofla @undocumedia

📢 VETERANS ASK: WHO IS PROFITING? ⬇️⬇️⬇️
💥Tomorrow morning, during morning rush hour, we will rally outside a small, nondescript office. If you blink, you'll miss it! Tucked away on the 8th floor of an office building, one of the main CORPORATE PROFITEERS of family separation is pushing its paper and turning its wheels RIGHT UNDER OUR noses in West LA!
.
7am STREET ACTION
9am PRESS CONFERENCE
.
Deported Veterans and local members of Veterans for Peace invite you to STAND UP, STAND TOGETHER and say NO MORE PROFITS FROM FAMILY SEPARATION!
.
Last week, it was reported that active service members who were promised citizenship are being quietly discharged and targeted for deportation! It was then reported that children as young as one year old are facing deportation hearings alone, unrepresented! ENOUGH!!
.
📌With this action, we encourage you to FOLLOW the 💲MONEY💲!
.
With a simple signature on a lease, these fascism profiteers are hiding in plain sight. On Friday we say to The GEO Group--WE SEE YOU!!
.
We ask Pepperdine students to STAND WITH US! This building bears your university's name! Does Pepperdine University support or denounce family separation? WE NEED TO KNOW!
.
We make these demands and more!
.
NO ONE IS SAFE! Not Veterans and not babies! We stand together now, because we all know... "first they came..."

José is trying to put down roots, but that solemn statue face tells you he’s already more rooted than anyone around him."

Human connection is powerful ✊🏼♥️
Thank you @cavialdi and @newsandrab for contributing to this beautiful cause. It takes an army of angels to make a difference.
.
I have no doubt that the migrant children being detained will feel comfort and love through each one of these stuffed animals. May they find courage to get through this as we all stand with them- in the fight.
.
If you’d like to donate toiletries, clothes, or money- please reach out and I’ll send you more information.
.
Thank you @borderangelsofficial for continuing to be a light and helping hand to humanity. Thank you for providing opportunities for us to give back and to fight for our people. I’ll see you guys very soon! 😇

📢 VETERANS ASK: WHO IS PROFITING? ⬇️⬇️⬇️
💥This Friday morning, during morning rush hour, we will rally outside a small, nondescript office. If you blink, you'll miss it! Tucked away on the 8th floor of an office building, one of the main CORPORATE PROFITEERS of family separation is pushing its paper and turning its wheels RIGHT UNDER OUR noses in West LA!
.
7am STREET ACTION
9am PRESS CONFERENCE
.
Deported Veterans and local members of Veterans for Peace invite you to STAND UP, STAND TOGETHER and say NO MORE PROFITS FROM FAMILY SEPARATION!
.
Last week, it was reported that active service members who were promised citizenship are being quietly discharged and targeted for deportation! It was then reported that children as young as one year old are facing deportation hearings alone, unrepresented! ENOUGH!!
.
📌With this action, we encourage you to FOLLOW the 💲MONEY💲!
.
With a simple signature on a lease, these fascism profiteers are hiding in plain sight. On Friday we say to The GEO Group--WE SEE YOU!!
.
We ask Pepperdine students to STAND WITH US! This building bears your university's name! Does Pepperdine University support or denounce family separation? WE NEED TO KNOW!
.
We make these demands and more!
.
NO ONE IS SAFE! Not Veterans and not babies! We stand together now, because we all know... "first they came..."

"Pregnant Women Say They Miscarried In Immigration Detention And Didn't Get The Care They Needed."
.
@buzzfeednews article.
.
Pregnant women in immigration detention under the Trump administration say they have been denied medical care, shackled around the stomach, and abused.
.
“An official arrived and they said it was not a hospital and they weren’t doctors. They wouldn’t look after me. I realized I was losing my son. It was his life that I was bleeding out. I was staining everything. I spent about eight days just lying down. I couldn’t eat, I couldn’t do anything. I started crying and crying and crying.”
.
About a week after speaking with her, she gave up her fight for asylum, accepted voluntary departure, and was deported back to El Salvador. She said she wouldn’t have come to the US seeking a safer life if she’d known what would happen.
.

Repost from @broloelcordero - THIS IS AMERICA.
.
I took this photo at the end of the “Families Belong Together” march and rally in DTLA.
.
This sums up a large amount of Americans. This sign in the trash symbolizes that a lot of people only get involved when something seems “fun” and when the event is over with, back to their unaffected lives. The growing trend in America is that you’re not fired up and want to do something unless you’re affected personally by the issues caused by all government, with emphasis on the current presidential administration.
.
When an estimated 75,000 people came to Los Angeles for this march and rally, only about *maybe* 5,000 marched. That’s me being VERY generous, I would say more likely less than 2,000. Most people came out with their pretty signs they made with their friends, came out with their coffees in hand and wanted to see John Legend sing, Maxine Waters, Kamala Harris, Gavin Newsome and other high-profile celebrities speak.
.
The power of the people was barely heard that day. An opportunity for a real action was in place, and the organizers failed. The people failed. That is one big reason why change does not come easy or swiftly in America. Lack of consistency when it comes to activism. You have to continuously be involved in some way, shape or form.
.
Clicktivism is good, to an extent. It raises awareness, but the sensation of that post dies quick. You’ve got to tell the stories, educate your friends/families/followers of REAL things going on, and the only way to know for sure is by those that have boots on the ground, and getting out yourself.
.
ALL POWER TO ALL PEOPLE. ✊🏽

If you've thought about volunteering with Border Angels before or you've attended a water drop and are thinking about becoming more involved, join us at Border X Brewing this Thursday at 6:00pm to learn more! #borderangels #waterdrop #waterislife

Yesterday we met with day laborers who wait for work in 100+ degree weather and temperatures are only going to increase this summer. Thank you to our dedicated leaders and volunteers who came out to share water, food, and legal resources with our fellow day laborer community. Amongst waiting for work in the elements, some day laborers also experience wage theft and stereotyping from the police and ICE. ICE and other predatory organizations operate on the basis that our community isn’t united nor informed. This is why we invite everyone to share know your rights information with members of our community that might benefit from it. We also invite you to join us for our monthly Day Laborer Outreach to share resources with our community. DM us for more details. ✊🏽❤️
