DHS put out a "myths vs. facts" for the travel ban.
The document says that there is no such thing as a "Muslim travel ban."
The initial travel ban targeted only Muslim-majority countries and came after Trump said he wanted to ban Muslims.
Fact check: False.
It IS a Muslim ban – that explicitly targets Africans.
We filed a lawsuit yesterday to get justice for Jamaican men who were kidnapped and abused by the U.S. Coast Guard for over a month.
The men still suffer from physical and psychological trauma as a result of their treatment.
Our clients still suffer from physical and psychological trauma as a result of their forced disappearance and abuse by the US Coast Guard. They deserve justice.
NEW: DHS has signed agreements with multiple jurisdictions that appear to be an unusual effort to hamstring the incoming Biden administration’s goals to alter immigration policy.
They would require DHS to check in with the locals before going forward.
This is a transparent attempt by Trump officials to tie the Biden administration’s hands and preserve Trump’s grotesque immigration enforcement policy.
The Biden administration has the authority, mandate, and responsibility to break from Trump’s legacy.
SCOTUS is reviewing the last appeals that will decide whether Corey Johnson lives or dies.
If they let his execution go forward, it will be another needless death in a year of reckless executions amidst a pandemic.
The system is broken beyond repair. End the death penalty.
Anti-trans politicians are once again attacking trans youth in Montana. Bills have been introduced that would ban medical care for trans youth and ban trans students from participating in school sports. Hearings on these bills may happen as soon as next week.
The horrific violence the NYPD inflicted against protesters for racial justice this summer is indefensible.
@NewYorkStateAG is right to use the power of her office to launch an overdue reckoning of the militarized use of force against protesters.
