"Thanks" doesn’t cut it after a year like 2020. Too much has been sacrificed. Too much has been lost. Instead, check and acknowledge your privilege. That is first step in creating a more just and humane world.

Folks must return to their essential roles everyday in order to meet their family’s basic necessities bc there is no safety net for them if they don't. This has forced essential workers to sacrifice themselves for an economy, a gov't & a nation that do not protect or value them.

For many immigrant & BIPOC folks disproportionately affected by , fulfilling their "essential role" is an act of sacrifice. Not heroism. That's why today we won’t ask you to give them your thanks. Instead we ask for something more meaningful 👇🏾

Fact: 2 days before Thanksgiving, in the middle of the pandemic, the US Déported asylum seekers including children to Haiti. Haitian Immigrants have always been a target from the 1980s to today.

"The renovation is likely to replace the chain link with clear plastic dividers..." A clear cage is still a cage. No amount of renovations will change the fact that we're actively imprisoning people for the "crime" of seeking a better life.

A similar situation is happening at Karnes, where families have been barred by from requesting or gaining access to our free legal services. Currently detained T42 families are in imminent danger of getting expelled without ever speaking to an attorney.

There are 3 Family "Residential Centers" (aka prisons) in operation: 1⃣The South TX detention facility in Dilley. 2⃣Karnes County (TX) detention facility. 3⃣Berks County detention facility in PA. Migrant families detained at all 3 have ALWAYS been in danger, but more so now.

⚠️ Your friendly reminder that 's cruelty does not stop at family separation❗️ The practice of Family Detention is just as bad & needs to be dismantled along w/the deportation machine created under Obama & expanded by Trump. A short 🧵👇🏾
