There are 28,000 recipients in the . Voting YES on a CR that did not include a solution for is voting YES on deporting them/putting their lives in limbo. I wish this didn't have to be explained to TX Democrats.

Again: this is not going to be a negotiation with Trump. He is captive to Stephen Miller and to his own biases. Senators (excluding the tea party extremists) this job is on you.

Even after fired Larry Nassar for abuse, president Lou Anna Simon kept him on staff. Enablers must be held accountable. Will you add your name to tell MSU to remove President Lou Anna Simon immediately?

“... who is more devoted to “order” than to justice; who prefers a negative peace which is the absence of tension to a positive peace which is the presence of justice.”

“I have been gravely disappointed with the white moderate. I have almost reached the regrettable conclusion that the Negro’s great stumbling block in his stride toward freedom is not the White Citizen’s Counciler or the Ku Klux Klanner, but the white moderate...”

Replying to @paolamendoza
“For years now I have heard the word “Wait!” It rings in the ear of every Negro with piercing familiarity. This “Wait” has almost always meant “Never.” We must come to see, with one of our distinguished jurists, that “justice too long delayed is justice denied.””

A thread: For those that are asking that we wait patiently until Feb 8th to see if we can pass a Dream Act. I remind you of the words of Dr. Martin Luther King that he wrote from a jail cell in Birmingham on waiting, on patience and on our “progressive friends.”

Don’t ever let an unfocused person tell you what you should be focused on.

Why I’ve never been a fan of or for anyone who claims the feminism ideology but ignores the intersectionality of a black woman’s identity

I want to see the government re-open as much as anyone, but this bill fails to fix the moral issue we must solve. That's why I voted against it.

It’s been over 100 days since protection for 800k Dreamers ended, since community health centers were funded, since hurricanes ravaged TX, FL & PR. The Republicans refused to fix any of these issues– and they still haven't fixed them. We don't need new promises. We need new laws.

I don’t normally think of myself as “creative” but when I examine how I (a black woman) deal with and response to people and their microaggressions, I recognize the artistry it takes to pull out seats for people who have clearly lost their mind
