The Trump Administration is exploring ways to reinstate the ban on refugees and immigrants from Muslim-majority countries. This is why we cannot let that happen! ✊🚫

Hiding from Trump 🚨#immigrantsmakeamericagreat

Today I stand in solidarity with "A Day Without Immigrants" protesters. #immigrantsfeedamerica, and immigrants make our country strong. #adaywithoutimmigrants #immigrantsmakeamericagreat

This makes my day. #immigrantsmakeamericagreat

Good morning AMERICAN FRIENDS & everyone! Here goes nothing, because personal is the political:

Mine is a story of migration. And SO IS YOURS (unless you are First Nations/ Native American or a descendant of people forced to migration by slavery).

Today is an important day in our history. One that all Americans & residents should know, but often don't, because of our penchant for white-washing the past.

TODAY marks the 75th Anniversary of executive order 9066, which led to the unconstitutional incarceration of 120 000 Japanese Americans in internment camps, and their being stripped not only of constitutional rights, but of HUMAN RIGHTS. If we want to learn from past, we must actually remember it. We must acknowledge it. We must own it.

If you've ever thought about what side you might have been on during American slavery, the mass genocide of indigenous Americans, struggle for civil rights, the Nazi regime, or countless other moments that history judges, here is your chance to put your body where your mouth is. Today. The bodies that stand against oppression, cannot always be the bodies with most to lose by standing there.

If you think I'm being hyperbolic, consider this:
The "bad guys" do not come out and say "we're evil & we're gonna put you all in concentration camps or worse". They come at you with bureaucracy, something that's cloaked in rubber stamps, efficiency, procedure, legalities, & paperwork. Something that doesn't concern YOU. Their evil is incremental & constant & our silence is complacency AND being complicit. Understand THIS: no matter how inconvenient, awkward, embarrassing, or confusing taking action might feel, it is YOUR right & duty as a member of this society. Pretending that this isn't happening is proof of your privilege. If you feel called out, it's because you are.

Moreover, as someone who woke up with a lot less certainty about their future on January 25th than the night before (though still with plenty of privilege) and is still taking a stand the best I can, I'm asking you,:
WHERE DO YOU STAND? By my side, or not? I will not live in fear, and I won't be silenced. WILL YOU?

About 11 million people are living in this country outside the law. Suddenly, by presidential decree, all are deportation priorities, all are supposed criminals, all are threatened with broken lives, along with members of their families. The end could come for them any time.

This is not an abstract or fanciful depiction. It is not fake news. It’s the United States of today, this month, this morning.
