@GeorgeTakei: "Once again, we are flinging ourselves into a world of camps and fences and racist imagery — and lies just big enough to stick." https://foreignpolicy.com/2018/06/19/at-least-during-the-internment-are-words-i-thought-id-never-utter-family-separation-children-border/ …
Please read and share as widely as possible. Thank you for writing this, @GeorgeTakei
Sources say #GreenlightNY bill granting driver's licenses to undocumented immigrants will be voted on by the Senate today. Bill passed the Assembly last week.
This is AMAZING NEWS. This is why elections are important. The amount of transformative bills that have passed in the last week in a democratic NY Senate are remarkable. Much more work to do but we must celebrate along the way.
Regarding Iran's attacks on tankers in the MidEast, @SecPompeo says Pres. @realDonaldTrump has made clear “he doesn't want to go to war” with Iran, but “we always have the authorization to defend American interests.” https://cbsn.ws/2wSEZhJ
This is how the Iraq War was sold to the American people. The media repeated the Bush admin's UNFOUNDED claims about Iraqi WMDs as FACTS. Now, without any conclusive evidence, @FaceTheNation repeats Pompeo's accusations against Iran as FACTS. Perhaps some don't want to learn?
Jason Kander served in Afghanistan, but his biggest act of bravery may have been admitting he was dropping out of the Kansas City mayoral race to address his PTSD. Here's my interview with Jason and his wife Diana. https://www.nbcnews.com/nightly-news/video/jason-kander-opens-up-about-dropping-out-of-kansas-city-mayoral-race-to-treat-ptsd-61880901549 …
I’m lucky to have known @JasonKander and @dianakander for over 15 years. I’ve watched him dedicate his life to service, but by speaking out about his PTSD, he shows others how to ask for and get help. This truly is the ultimate act of public service. I’ve never been more proud.
“When They See Us” essential lesson in American civics. Still hurts my stomach and brings back minor PTSD #Brooklyn. My analysis alongside Ellison for (Re)reading Ralph Ellison in 21st c. will include “When They Call You a Terrorist.” https://buff.ly/2KcNnBj #strugglecontinues.
1/Good morning! I am compelled to write my first ever tweet thread because @CokieRoberts on @NPR this morning stated that she could not find abortion ads in 19thc newspapers and therefore historians are just playing at pro-choice politics.
Thread re: history of abortion availability in 19th century.
Trump's former chief of staff played a huge role in the inhumane family separation policy. Now John Kelly's joining the board of a company that runs Homestead, the largest detention center for migrant kids. Rep. @PramilaJayapal and I are demanding answers.

As Trump continues to escalate tensions with Iran, it’s more important than ever that Congress reassert its constitutional authority and #StopEndlessWar.

2020 Census funding is in trouble, via letter from MN Council on Foundations. House included $2m in their budget to ramp up to the count, but the Senate is arguing it's similar to an election issue and should have informal bipartisan agreement. Census Day is April 1, 2020 #mnleg
One of my Republican colleagues admitted this week that Leader McConnell is blocking all legislation aimed at securing elections. Foreign adversaries are already gearing up to target our next elections. This is an absurd level of irresponsibility - the time to get ready is now.
We need to do all we can to protect our right to vote, and secure our elections ... we must protect our democracy!
