Hi, I’m Carla👋🏼
The Trump administration has been reallocating funds from the DHHS for HIV and AIDS treatment to ICE and paying for child detainment. Mike Pence, the anti gay Vice President has encouraged and supported this. Pence also wants to remove more funding from therapy for LGBT individuals. It’s absurd that the government would care more about tearing migrant families apart then the health of our citizens. These politicians claim to put America first yet they could care less about minorities rights and healthcare. There is a much deeper interest in spreading hate and fear to stop other from immigrating here. For a country founded by immigrants, this is beyond shameful.

Hi, I’m Carla👋🏼
With Supreme Court Justice Kennedy’s retirement, Trump has chosen Brett Kavanaugh (a strong conservative) to replace him. How is it, that Trump is under FBI investigation and can still appoint a Supreme Court justice? It is clear this is just one more step toward the deterioration of our democracy. Trump is corrupting our nation, making enemies out of democratic world leaders, and befriending dictators. Trump or any other president under federal investigation should not be allowed to appoint a Supreme Court justice.

Thank you for all who came out, supported, and shared. It means a lot. 💜💜💜 🎨: @justinteodoro .

Huge London, England rally today to protest Trump’s UK visit, racism, fascism, xenophobia, and attacks on immigrants.
The Labour Party’s Jeremy Corbyn: “We’re asserting our right to free speech and our right to demonstrate for a better world. When we divide ourselves by racism, misogyny and hate, we all lose. When we are united in hope, with common goals, we can all win.”

These items, which include baby/youth hygiene items, bath essentials, backpacks, diapers, and so much more, will go a long way for our clients and their families.

Etelbina Hauser, 56, from Honduras, says she now works for good people, but that hasn’t always been the case. While house cleaning for a couple, the husband called her into the bathroom and exposed himself to her. The wife accused her of lying when Hauser called to quit. “We’re like the garbage they ask us to clean up.” She’s now encouraging those who’ve had similar experiences to speak up, too.

URGENT: This week, the Contra Costa County Sheriff announced it was terminating its contract with ICE at the West County Detention Facility. While this is a testament to the power of individuals who organized themselves inside to shed light on the abuse happening within as well as the public who put constant pressure on the Sheriff's office, there is more work to be done for it to be a just and responsible closure.
This will only be a true victory until those currently detained individuals are released in the next 120 days as the contract winds down. That means we need your support to raise money so that people who are detained will have the opportunity to reunite with their families and to fight their deportation cases with legal representation.
Please consider contributing to the Community Fund. Link in bio.

I just read an article (linked) about how immigrant children are not recognising their mothers when they are being reunited. It’s barbaric and cruel to separate children from their parents in this way. https://www.google.co.in/amp/s/www.nytimes.com/2018/07/10/us/politics/trump-administration-catch-and-release-migrants.amp.html #immigration #immigrantchildren #california #phoenix #trump #dailywords #motherhood #immigrantsmakeamericagreat #poetsofig #poetry #poems #myart #delhi #india_gram #motherandchild #news #immigrantparents #immigrationreform #immigrantsrights #humanrights #illegalimmigrants #illegalimmigration #love #immigrantswelcome #welcomehome #spirituality #makeamericagreatagain #freedom #legalimmigration #daca

Justice Anthony Kennedy’s announced his retirement late in June, thus freeing up a seat on the Supreme Court. Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh was nominated to fill that seat on the Supreme Court by Trump on Monday.
.
Kavanaugh is 53 years old which means if appointed, could shift the Supreme Court to the right/more conservative than what it had been with Kennedy. Kavanaugh is also relatively young, meaning he could serve for decades.
.
Protest were already underway Monday to challenge the nominee and the Senate has not yet voted on his confirmation. It is important to stay informed which is why we have also included an article which digs deeper into Kavanaugh’s background and his stance on key issues.

Thinking that a Little Bit of Compassion and Knowledge Could Cure the Divisiveness in Our Country.

What many seem to ignore (or simply don't know/are misled) is that the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) itself allows people, who are out of the country, "#refuges," to come to the U.S. borders and ask for asylum if they have a "well-founded fear of persecution on account of race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group or political opinion, and is unwilling to avail herself fo the protection of her country." (INA § 101 (a)(42)(A). The definition also includes people who are already in the country. #ClaudiaHumphrey, Esq.

A handful of defense contractor companies are working with the government to detain and care for immigrants who have attempted to enter the US, and so are profiting from US immigrant-detention policies. Dynamic Education Systems provides emergency shelter operations for unaccompanied children and other immigrant detainees.
.
Contact the company to demand they stop profiting from unfair immigration policies. 📞Tel: 602.995.0116📞

Hi. I'm concerned about what is happening to people seeking asylum, and how they are being treated. Dynamic Education Systems has made $5.6 million to provide some educational services to unaccompanied children. I call on DES to stand up for immigrant rights and rethink this unethical contract.

First question: Why is this white dude @vp or any male gender making decisions about women’s rights?! @gop Second question: He’s Christian, says he’s “pro-life” but does he realize there are non-Christians and even non religious people in our country? So who gave these people the right to “force” their believe on others?! Third question: If he’s pro-life & a family loving man then why the hell is he ok for caging children and separating families?!! 😖😖 #womensrights #immigrantchildren #immigrantsrights #stopkavanaugh #savescotus #freedomofchoice #democracy #roevwade 💪💪 #familiesbelongtogether #keepfamiliestogether #guncontrol #childrensrightsarehumanrights #lgbtrights @moveon @plannedparenthood @everytown @womensmarch @marchforourlives @aclu_nationwide @cnn @kamalaharris @senwarren @chrismurphyct @thedemocrats @chuckschumer @senblumenthal @huffpost @nytimes @indivisibleteam

Despite the many disturbing things currently going on in our country I am optimistic about the future of our country because I feel like more people are waking up and realizing that we individually & collectively need to get involved to make a difference.
.
We can no longer sit back on the sidelines and wait for others or our government to “fix things.” We can no longer close our eyes to injustices, especially when it has to do with nearly 3,000 innocent children being taken from their parents and held in detentions centers for weeks and sometimes months. Collectively and individually we can use our energy, intentions, influence, our voice and our spending dollars to affect change on issues that matter to us.
.
But I also know this, self care is crucial when you are you are using your energy to be of service to others and are involved in helping create positive change. Finding ways to get grounded and aligned when we are dealing with what may feel like heavy issues is so important. Practicing Yoga & Meditation can help keep us centered in times like these.
.
Because I believe in the power of collective positive intentions, (combined with action & self care) I’ve organized a donation based Yoga & Meditation fundraising class this Sunday in NYC that will be to provide funds to help immigrant children get reunited with their families. Come join me @ cohost @ksunlove & @goddessonthego1 to breathe, bend and combine our energy to create positive change. Full details & link to register in my bio. ⬆️
.
💯 of the donations will be spread evenly amongst these 3 non-profit organizations: @aclu_nationwide, @raicestexas and @together.

The Chinese Exclusion Act, enacted in 1882, was the first U.S. law that specifically targeted and banned immigration of an ethnic group. It was first passed to "keep order" in communities, then aesthetically rebranded as a way to ensure merit-based immigration before dropping pretense altogether, banning skilled and unskilled Chinese workers regardless of their actual country of origin and classifying those already living here permanent aliens incapable of earning citizenship. The law legitimized and stoked anti-immigrant violence, including the Rock Springs and Snake River Chinese Massacres in 1885 and 1887. It remained in place for over sixty years.
The man and woman in this photo were both born toward the end of this era of unhindered, “lawful” racism. Neither thought they'd live to see it again.
