Twitter Rakes in Cash From Anti-Immigrant Bigots
Ilana Novick | truthdig.com | 2019-10-08
The group's name is bland enough: Federation for Immigration Reform (FAIR). It doesn't explain its specific position on immigration–it could want to expand or limit it, but the word reform doesn't tell us anything either way. That meaningless name is helpful for evading scrutiny, which is perhaps why, as Alex Kotch reports in Sludge, the "prominent anti-immigrant organization has spent $934,000 on Twitter ads, and Twitter sees no problem with this." | A little under $1 million in promoted tweets over a few years might not seem like a lot of…

Exile poor Americans next? Trump scorched over entry ban for migrants who can't afford health insurance
rt.com | 2019-10-05
The White House has issued a proclamation demanding that migrants prove they can afford to pay for healthcare in the United States before they are allowed to enter the country, kicking off fierce debate among netizens. | Issued late on Friday, the new directive says immigrants must prove their ability to purchase health insurance within 30 days of entering the country, arguing the uninsured are passing on costs to US taxpayers and over-burdening the healthcare system. | An alien will financially burden the United States healthcare system unless the alien will be covered by approved health insurance… within 3…

Trump's Anti-Immigration Policies Are a Deepening of Previous Admin Policies
Staff | therealnews.com | 2019-10-04
Although Trump's rhetoric on immigration is shocking, suggesting border patrol should shoot border crossing immigrants in the legs, his policies are an intensification of policies that began under Obama, not a dramatic departure, says Aviva Chomsky.

Trump's War on Asylum-Seekers is Endangering Pregnant Women
aclu.org | 2019-10-03
CBP officers are forcibly returning pregnant asylum-seekers to Mexico in violation of their own rules. | The view from the Matamoros, Mexico side of the Rio Grande — just across from Brownsville, Texas — reveals an unsettling scene. | Young women and children bathe openly in the murky green water, while others wash their clothes on the bank of the river that has claimed so many lives — most recently those of Idalia and her 21-month-old son Iker.

As Man Dies in ICE Custody, California Moves to Ban For-Profit Prisons, Including Immigrant Jails
Staff | democracynow.org | 2019-10-03
A Cameroonian immigrant died this week in the custody of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement in California. The man, identified as 37-year-old Nebane Abienwi, died on Tuesday after suffering a brain hemorrhage. This comes as California lawmakers passed a bill last month that would ban private prisons statewide, a major blow to the for-profit prison industry in the U.S. that is deeply entangled in immigration detention. The legislation also orders the closure of four ICE prisons that can jail up to 4,500 immigrants. The bill is currently awaiting the signature of Governor Gavin Newsom, who said in his January…

Trump Announces Plan to Admit Fewer Refugees Than Any Previous President
aclu.org | 2019-09-27
Another attack on Muslims and communities of color seeking safety. | The Trump administration yesterday announced its plan to admit 18,000 refugees this fiscal year, taking another step in its agenda to dismantle the program that has long provided protection for people and families seeking safety from persecution. This sickening announcement is consistent with Trump's attacks on refugees, Muslims, and immigrants across the board — particularly those who are Brown or Black. | The U.S. has long been a global leader in refugee admissions.
