Yesterday, President Biden issued an executive order on day one that rescinded Trump’s Muslim ban targeting Africans, after 4 years and many iterations to keep it alive.

Now it’s time to bring justice to those impacted.

Abuse, inadequate medical care, and rampant profiteering characterize the immigrant detention system.

As a first step in building a more just and humane system, we urge @POTUS to make good on his promise to end contracts with private prison companies.

President Biden rescinded one of the Trump administration’s most incendiary orders: the Muslim ban, targeting Africans.

We share stories of those directly impacted and discuss what ending it will and won’t do for the future of Muslims in America.

Biden is expected to sign an executive order on family separation, Trump's draconian policy that separated thousands of families w/ hundreds still not reunited. So what should Biden to to fix it? I asked
@ACLU lead attorney on the family separation case.

The Biden administration is suspending new enrollments in Trump’s forced return to Mexico program.

Next, it must end this illegal policy and allow people who remain stranded in Mexico to pursue their asylum claims in the US in safety and without further trauma.

It’s time to end the stigma against sex work — decriminalizing it plays a critical role in getting us there.

For Black trans women, the consequences of criminalization can even be deadly. Change is urgently needed.

Good.

We hope this is the Biden administration’s first step in fully recognizing who we are.

HB 112 passes committee 12-7, despite overwhelming opposition from Montanans. There is still time to stop this bill from becoming law. We will always support trans youth. #MTLEG

If lawmakers in Montana pass this bill attacking trans student athletes, we’ll see them in court.

If the US is to truly stop banning Muslims, we can’t just rescind the Muslim ban.

We must rescind every policy, practice, and regulation that was attached to and came out of the ban.

We must stop banning Muslims through our other immigration policies.

The Biden administration must:
1️⃣ Let separated families reunite in the United States
2️⃣ Provide citizenship for these families
3️⃣ Provide necessities, including trauma-informed care, to families
4️⃣ Ensure families are never separated again

Quoted @NickMiroff

Biden border wall proclamation: "It shall be the policy of my Administration that no more American taxpayer dollars be diverted to construct a border wall. I am also directing a careful review of all resources appropriated or redirected to construct a southern border wall."

Ending border wall construction is a welcome start, but simply not enough.

It's time to start tearing the unlawful wall down.
