Fun Fact

Everyword is a Twitter account created by Adam Parrish in December 2007 to share every word in the English language on Twitter. Since then, this account has tweeted 84k+ words.

Cameras, chokehold bans, “retraining” funds, and similar reform measures do not ultimately solve what is a systemic problem. That system will find a way - killings happen on camera, people are killed in other ways, retraining grows $ while often substituting for deeper measures.

Daunte Wright’s killing was not a random, disconnected “accident” - it was the repeated outcome of an indefensible system that grants impunity for state violence, rewards it w/ endlessly growing budgets at the cost of community investment, & targets those who question that order.

Biden: “Was it an accident or was it intentional? That remains to be determined ...” “In the meantime, I want to make it clear again: There is absolutely no justification, none, for looting ... Peaceful protest? Understandable.” https://t.co/S4OOqfzYqq

There’s no justification for killing someone over expired plates. There’s no justification to mention damage to property before the damage police killings inflict on Black America. https://t.co/vE4moYrRSg

Some addt’l info: - Death certificate must list COVID as primary or contributing cause. If COVID wasn’t listed for your loved one (as many were early on), you can have the cert amended by the hospital - Documented people can apply for lost loved ones who were undocumented

A child is dying every 75 seconds in Yemen. Please help uplift these activists who have been on a hunger strike for the past 9 days to demand an end to the inhumane U.S. backed Saudi blockade in Yemen. This is an emergency. Yemen is being starved @POTUS and you can help end it. https://t.co/g8i2iDB13h

.@AOC is right on this one. Bigger is possible. And necessary. Rebuilding our entire country will be expensive. And still cost only slightly more than what we’ve already spent on wars in the Middle East since 9/11: https://t.co/fZUjbrycCV https://t.co/Htc45GEBQR

.@AOC explains the real Dem position: abolish ICE. Full open borders. Which would make the #BidenBorderCrisis even worse. She says nothing else works. Really? Last year, we had the lowest illegal immigration IN 45 YEARS. This year, we have the highest in 20 years. https://t.co/zT8wKuvkRm

Ted, this is pretty rich coming from someone who fled their own home (and responsibilities) during an environmental crisis to cross the border and seek refuge in Mexico. Also you funded cages, expanded cages, and yet you’re complaining about cages. You have no policy, just puff. https://t.co/0MI8oU0EtQ

In the long term, we need to address US immigration policy that drives parents to make the devastating choice to send their child alone to flee violence bc together they have less of a shot. Lots more. Also foreign policy, climate, etc. Here’s a roadmap: https://t.co/ppny4GDpRq

So do we do? If facilities are your #1 concern, short term we need to shift Congress’ knee-jerk addiction to funding carceral facilities (ICE/CBP) to expansion of ORR (office of refugee resettlement) and HHS (health and human services). But that’s not a long term solution.

Fact is a lot of the politicians crying right now don’t work to solve either. They vote to grow ICE + CBP cages and they do everything to avoid addressing the root: US foreign policy and interventionism that destabilizes regions, the climate crisis, and unjust economic policy.

Politicians and pundits who are pretending to care about the border now but have continuously voted to expand these cages can sit down. You might be new to this, but we’re true to this. Short-term issue is facilities. Long-term issue is destabilization that’s driving migration.
