NO ONE IS ILLEGAL::.. thank you @deepdish_disaster for this beautiful and bold photo! 🙏🏽❤️ •
@deepdish_disaster : Feeling like a snack. Before becoming a US citizen I kept my political opinions to myself out of fear. With great pleasure I can express my thoughts and feelings more openly than ever before. ❤️ || #ManoyMetal #nooneisillegal
If you consider yourself an ally to those in our communities, schools, and workplaces who are facing escalating racist deportation strategies, it’s time to get serious about what being an “ally” means. So called “sanctuary city status” is a kind act of solidarity, but it doesn’t actually protect our neighbors from being detained. Raids and other cruel tactics are increasing rapidly under this administration, and it’s a terrifying time. No matter where you live, you can ask your elected officials to support legal defense funds for people facing deportation hearings - and then you can contribute to them. Find out who in your community offers legal services to refugees and immigrants and support them now. No joke, two year old babies are currently representing themselves in deportation hearings. Go to know your rights events and share info far and wide. If you know black and brown children and youth who are suffering under this racist rhetoric and fear of their families being torn apart, make your support clear. “You deserve to be here.” “You make our school great.” “We don’t believe the lies they are telling about you.” “You are welcome and wanted here.” *if you yourself are living through this epically traumatic time as an undocumented human or someone who loves and undocumented human, we are with you in this and are willing to give things up to help you stay with your family and community. Immigrants make America great, and diversity is an asset. If you need resources, no matter where you live, DM us and we will do the research for you. If you live in the Portland area, there are many organizations ready to help, and we can tell you about them.
Solidarity, Justice, and Love to all of us as we get through this time together. If I could translate this in to many languages, I would.

CW: death, borders
The border was something that has defined my life for such a long time. Last year I came across a picture of the physical border and I realized that I had never really seen the physical wall. I've been scared of it's implications for such a long time--and had never seen it.
I had only seen what it did to the community, my community around it. I had only seen how it created "borders" around each of us.
Kept us locked inside our houses when we heard ICE crept outside.
Kept our voice locked inside our chest.
Kept our love inside our hearts because it tore our families apart.
It's been a place where hundreds of people have gone missing and died. Where people have taken their own lives.
This border that I wish we could just take a hammer to with the will and power of our community.

Today is one of those days that will stay with me for a very long time! We traveled south to the border of Nogales where we engaged in a humanitarian mission with the migrant community and the Kino Border Initiative / Iniciativa Kino para la Frontera (KBI) shelter and comedor. Our group consisted of 9 artists, 1 social worker, 1 Adelita, 1 KBI board member and her husband! We helped cook, serve meals, donated items, visited, listened to their stories of struggle and even cried with them! Some of these stories are heartbreaking and reminder that we need comprehensive immigration reform now! ✊🏽 The work and mission of the KBI is inspiring and honorable, all aid is provided free of cost to the migrant community and is run by volunteers and donations. Thank you Yolie Aleman-Rodriguez for inviting me to this wonderful visit and Diana Calderon for organizing! This world needs more people like you two 💕
As a result of this wonderful experience, the 9 artists that traveled wit us will create unique and inspiring pieces of art that will be displayed in a gallery in south Phoenix this fall. Proceeds will go to benefit the Mission of the Kino Border Initiative. Details to come! 🙏🏼💪🏼 #ServeToLive #LiveToServe #HumanitarianMission #NoHumanIsIllegal #NoMasMuertes #KinoBorderInitiative #AZSocialWorkersNetwork #socialwork #community #solidaridad

Regrann from @maketheroadnv - Heartbreaking. Witness here the destruction that ICE visits upon immigrant families:
READ HIS TRANSCRIPT BELOW:
The son of Cecilia Gomez on his last words to his mother before she was brutally assaulted and detained by ICE:
"I was like, good luck mom, You're going to become a US Citizen soon...and then when I got the message...that she was going to get deported, I didn't know what to think or do...my mom is probably one of the best moms in the world. She's always focused on maintaining us, on us studying so we could be successful in life, and its really hard because everything I do in school is for her."

Organ Pipe - a 517 square foot park bordering Mexico in S. Arizona. We fell asleep to drones buzzing over head searching for immigrants. It is a hot, unforgiving landscape and last year 151 people died trying to cross the border in Arizona alone. There have been over 7,000 migrant deaths along the Mexican border since 1998. Border patrol agents routinely slash water caches and spoil food caches. Increased border security has pushed migrant routes into more remote and treacherous terrains.
Tucson Samaritans is a humanitarian aid organization that aims to save lives in the Southern Arizona Desert.
No Mas Muertes (No More Deaths) is another great organization that provides medical care to migrants and seeks to educate people on Border Patrol abuses. I highly recommend checking out both their websites and considering to donate!
