After @salesforce workers asked their CEO @Benioff to commit to canceling the Salesforce contract with CBP, the company responded by offering us a $250k donation.

We responded on Monday by telling them we won’t accept the donation until they #CancelTheContract
They refused.

We are hearing very disturbing reports about children sent to Port Isabel. The intake process is extremely backed up and some kids have been waiting with their transporters for up to 2 days. There aren’t enough beds or chairs. Kids and adults are sleeping on the floor. The center is providing food for children but not their adult escorts. Clearly the administration had no plan when it tore asylum seeking families apart.

wow!!! I am so incredibly touched by every single person who helped with this fundraiser. we raised $5003 for @raicestexas family reunification bond fund (including a few donations that were made directly to raices) I started this fundraiser because I felt so much dread thinking of all the kids and migrants being violently attacked and blatantly disregarded. immigrants deserve the right for safety and survival. thank you thank you for sharing this post, for encouraging your friends to donate, for buying prints for your classrooms and for staying aware and alert. this does not mean our work is done, but it is a small victory that will hopefully directly alleviate the pain of some. special shout out to my wife @caseyenglish4 for making every single trip to the post office and encouraging me every step of the way. thank you so much y’all! ✨💜✊🏽

As part of the @raicestexas LoveMeltsICE campaign, we are proud to announce limited edition t-shirts with a $30 donation at the link below.
We are debuting our first design by San Antonio artist and the owner of @snakehawkpress @cruzortizart Cruz's art has been a part of many political and social movements and we are honored to have him support the work RAICES has been doing for over 30 years. "This poster design is really a call to action. It is in times such as these that we have to step up, draw lines in the sand, and speak up against hate rhetoric. In our current situation, it is beyond just rhetoric, our government is actively treating humans as animals. ICE is carrying out gestapo predator policies and it needs to stop immediately. LOVE MELTS ICE!!!"- Cruz
#LoveMeltsICE
Love demands justice, equality and action. Every person we see in detention is actually surrounded by an invisible crowd of the people who love them, who they have taken risks to be with, who they have taken risks to keep safe.

This morning our staff and volunteer pro bono attorneys arrived at the Karnes detention center to meet with clients and were told they couldn’t meet with anyone as Karnes was empty. Around 3:45pm two of our pro bono attorneys watched as a bus was loaded at Karnes with mothers and children.
Having been lied to all day, they decided to follow the bus from Karnes to see where they were being transferred to. An hour in to the drive they call our Comms Director to let her know they had been pulled over by 3 state troopers in SUV’s for “illegally” following the bus and demanded to see their client lists. They were held for 15 minutes by police, and now continue to follow the bus which looks to be headed to Dilley detention center.
