Introductory Tweets and Questions for the Chat:

Welcome to the #CripTheVote chat on immigration with guest host @DisabledLatinx! 
Remember to use the #CripTheVote hashtag when you tweet. If you respond to a question such as Q1, your tweet should follow this format: “A1 [your message] #CripTheVote”

This chat will be 75 minutes. Please note there may be discussions of forced medical treatment, institutions, death, abuse, trauma, grief, and mental health among other distressing topics. Feel free to take breaks or drop out of the convo if needed. #CripTheVote

On April 6, 2018 the U.S. attorney general announced a new border enforcement policy of "zero tolerance" calling for criminal prosecution of all immigrants found w/o legal documentation 

Due to this policy, ~ 3,000 children have been separated from their families at the US-Mexico border (including 100 children under the age of 5) from May 5-June 9, 2018 https://www.vox.com/2018/7/5/17536984/children-separated-parents-border-how-many   #CripTheVote

On June 20, 2018 the President signed an Executive Order reversing the separation of families ordering that they would be detained together: https://www.vox.com/2018/6/20/17484300/read-trump-executive-order-family-separation-immigration-full-text #CripTheVote

Q1 When you first learned about the “zero tolerance” policy and its consequences on migrant families seeking asylum at the border, what were your initial reactions? How did you process your emotions and feelings? #CripTheVote

Q2 Family separation is not new to this country, especially to indigenous, Black, disability, LGBTQIA, and immigrant communities among others. How does this cause intergenerational trauma to families and communities for decades? #CripTheVote

Q3 How is language about immigration policies used to dehumanize and criminalize entire groups of people? What are the consequences of this kind of racialized rhetoric on marginalized communities? #CripTheVote

There are currently no plans by the Federal govt on how to reunite the estimated 2500 children separated from their families in May/June. Many are in shelters, foster homes, treatment facilities, etc, across the US. https://www.washingtonpost.com/graphics/2018/national/migrant-child-shelters/?noredirect=on&utm_term=.501b1f0824de #CripTheVote

Q4 What are your concerns regarding the well-being of the separated children, especially related to disability-related needs, healthcare, and social supports? #CripTheVote

Q5 For some detained adults, there have been reports of suicide and deaths due to medical neglect. What are some issues facing D/deaf and disabled migrants & migrants currently experiencing trauma under detention? What is known so far by activists on the ground? #CripTheVote

A draft of Department of Homeland Security (DHS) proposed rule on defining the “public charge” rule from 212(a)(4) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA). The rule would expand the definition of “public charge” beyond its current 1/2 #CripTheVote https://assets.documentcloud.org/documents/4413837/Read-the-Trump-administration-s-draft-proposal.pdf

...interpretation of those “primarily dependent” on cash assistance or needing long term institutional support to include those who are “likely” to use any government assistance, (i.e. Medicaid, CHIP, SNAP, WIC, Pell Grants, etc.). 2/2 #CripTheVote https://www.uscis.gov/ilink/docView/FR/HTML/FR/0-0-0-1/0-0-0-54070/0-0-0-54088/0-0-0-55744.html

The rule will published in the Federal Register.  Disability advocates (and immigrant rights groups interested in the intersection of disability) may wish to understand the following breakdown of information: https://www.nilc.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/Public-Charge-Fact-Sheet-2018.pdf #CripTheVote

Q6 What are the current and potential impacts in the #DisabledImmigrant community if the public charge rule passes? #CripTheVote

In U.S. immigration policy, historically, disability has been used as a justification to exclude. For example, the 1882 Act to Regulate Immigration prohibited any “lunatic, idiot, or any person unable to take care of himself or herself without becoming a public charge.” #CripTheVote

Immigration law today explicitly maintains the “public charge” language, a legal construction historically entrenched in racism and ableism. #CripTheVote

Under Section 212(a)(4) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA), an individual seeking admission to the United States or seeking to adjust status to that of an individual lawfully admitted for permanent residence (green card) 1/2 #CripTheVote

...is inadmissible if the individual, "at the time of application for admission or adjustment of status, is likely at any time to become a public charge." 2/2  #CripTheVote

Q7 How would this new regulation change how immigration officials interpret and apply “public charge”?  Where can we find the best resources for this information?  #CripTheVote

Q8 What can we do to prevent the “public charge” rule from becoming an official regulation?  What are the best resources to share? #CripTheVote

Q9 As disabled people what can we do now (and in the future) to make our views known about immigration, deportation, and family separation? How are disability and immigration rights intertwined? #CripTheVote

Q10 What are ways activists who focus on disability rights & justice, immigration, prison abolition, and racial justice can coordinate and mobilize against the current ‘zero tolerance’ policy? #CripTheVote

Thank you for joining the #CripTheVote chat on immigration. A big thank you to our guest host @DisabledLatinx for joining us today! 

A compilation of Tweets from this #CripTheVote chat will be up shortly. Check out our blog for the latest: http://cripthevote.blogspot.com/

El 6 de abril de 2018 el Procurador General de los Estados Unidos anunció una nueva póliza de aplicación de la frontera de "tolerancia cero" que pedía el enjuiciamiento penal de todos los inmigrantes encontrados w/o documentación #CripTheVote https://www.vox.com/2018/6/11/17443198/children-immigrant-families-separated-parents

Debido a esta póliza, ~ 3.000 niños han sido separados de sus familias en la frontera México-Estados Unidos (incluyendo 100 niños menores de 5 años) del 5 de mayo al 9 de junio, 2018 cuántos https://www.vox.com/2018/7/5/17536984/children-separated-parents-border-how-many #CripTheVote

El 20 de junio de 2018 el Presidente firmó una orden ejecutiva que reversó la separación de las familias que ordenaban que fueran detenidos juntos #CripTheVote https://www.vox.com/2018/6/20/17484300/read-trump-executive-order-family-separation-immigration-full-text

Q1 Cuando se enteró por primera vez de la póliza de "tolerancia cero" y sus consecuencias para las familias migrantes que buscan asilo en la frontera, ¿Cuáles fueron sus reacciones iniciales? ¿Cómo procesaste tus emociones y sentimientos? #CripTheVote

Q2 La separación de la familia no es nueva para este país, especialmente para las comunidades indígenas, Negras, discapacitadas, LGBTQIA e inmigrantes entre otras. ¿Cómo causa esto traumas intergeneracionales a familias y comunidades por décadas para venir? #CripTheVote

 Q3 ¿Cómo se utiliza el lenguaje sobre las políticas de inmigración para deshumanizar y criminalizar a grupos enteros de personas? ¿Cuáles son las consecuencias de este tipo de retórica racial sobre las comunidades marginadas? #CripTheVote

Actualmente no hay planes por parte del gobierno Federal sobre cómo reunir a los estimados 2.500 niños separados de sus familias en los meses de mayo/junio. Muchos están en refugios, hogares de acogida, centros de tratamiento, etc, en Estados Unidos  #CripTheVote https://www.washingtonpost.com/graphics/2018/national/migrant-child-shelters/?noredirect=on&utm_term=.501b1f0824de

Q4 ¿Cuáles son sus preocupaciones con respecto al bienestar de los niños separados, especialmente relacionados con necesidades de discapacidad - salud y apoyos sociales relacionados con la discapacidad? #CripTheVote

Q5a Para algunos adultos detenidos, se ha informado de suicidios y muertes por negligencia médica. ¿Cuáles son algunos de los problemas a los que se enfrentan los migrantes e inmigrantes sordos y discapacitados que actualmente sufren un trauma bajo custodia? #CripTheVote

Q5b ¿Qué se sabe hasta ahora por los activistas en el terreno? #CripTheVote

El proyecto del Departamento de Seguridad Nacional (DHS) propuso la regla para definir la regla "cargo público" del 212 (a)(4) de la ley de inmigración y nacionalidad (INA). La regla ampliaría la definición de "cargo público" más allá de su actual 1/2 #CripTheVote https://assets.documentcloud.org/documents/4413837/Read-the-Trump-administration-s-draft-proposal.pdf

... interpretación de aquellos "dependientes principales" sobre asistencia en efectivo o que necesite apoyo institucional a largo plazo incluye aquellos que "probablemente" utilicen cualquier ayuda del gobierno (ex Medicaid, CHIP, Snap, WIC, Becas Pell, etc.). 2/2 #CripTheVote https://www.uscis.gov/ilink/docView/FR/HTML/FR/0-0-0-1/0-0-0-54070/0-0-0-54088/0-0-0-55744.html

La regla se publicará en el Registro Federal. Defensores de la discapacidad (y los grupos de derechos de los inmigrantes interesados en la intersección de la discapacidad) tal vez deseen entender el siguiente colapso de información: https://www.nilc.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/Public-Charge-Fact-Sheet-2018.pdf #CripTheVote 

Q6 ¿Cuáles son los impactos actuales y los del futuro en la comunidad #DisabledImmigrant si la regla de “cargo pública” pasa? #CripTheVote
  
Historicamente la pólitica de inmigración en EEUU utilizó discapacidad para justificar exclusión. Por ejemplo el Acto de 1882 para Regular Inmigración prohibía algún "lunático idiota o cualquier persona incapaz de cuidarse a sí mismo sin convertirse en cargo público" #CripTheVote

La ley de hoy sobre inmigración, explícitamente mantiene el lenguaje de "cargo público", históricamente es una construcción legal arraigada en el racismo y el poderismo. #CripTheVote

En Sección 212 (a)(4) de la ley de inmigración y nacionalidad (INA), una persona que busca la admisión en EEUU o que busca ajustar su estatus a la de un individuo admitido legalmente para la residencia permanente (Green Card) 1/2 #CripTheVote

... es inadmisible si el individuo, "en el momento de la solicitud de admisión o ajuste de estatus, es probable que en cualquier momento se convierta en un cargo público". 2/2 #CripTheVote

Q7 ¿Cómo cambiaría esta nueva reglamentación cómo los funcionarios de inmigración interpretan y aplican "cargo público"?  ¿Dónde podemos encontrar los mejores recursos para esta información? #CripTheVote

Q8 ¿Qué podemos hacer para evitar que la regla de la "cargo público" se convierta en un reglamento oficial?  ¿Cuáles son los mejores recursos para compartir? #CripTheVote

Q9 Como personas con discapacidad ¿qué podemos hacer ahora (y en el futuro) para dar a conocer nuestras opiniones sobre la inmigración, la deportación y la separación de la familia? ¿Cómo se entrelazan los derechos de discapacidad e inmigración? #CripTheVote

Q10 ¿Cuáles son las formas en que los activistas que se centran en los derechos de la discapacidad y la justicia, la inmigración, la abolición carcelaria y la justicia racial pueden coordinarse y movilizarse contra la póliza actual de "tolerancia cero"? #CripTheVote

Gracias por unirse a la charla #CripTheVote sobre inmigración. Un gran agradecimiento a nuestro anfitrión invitado @DisabledLatinx por unirse con nosotros hoy!

Please note there will be discussion of gun violence, mass shootings, ableism, institutionalization, and other potentially upsetting topics. Feel free to take breaks or drop out of the convo if needed. #CripTheVote

Q1 Incidents of mass violence or interpersonal violence occur all too often in the United States. How do you view the connection between gun violence, gun control policy, and disability issues? #CripTheVote

Q2 It is not unusual to see rampant speculation that may be rooted in ableism and hate towards Muslims, people of color, immigrants and other marginalized groups. How does this impact you as a disabled person?  #CripTheVote

Q3 What are the pervasive stereotypes and misinformation about predictors of violence and people with disabilities, especially people w/ mental health disabilities? #CripTheVote

Q4 There are proposals at the local, state, and federal level about restricting the right to own guns from people deemed ‘unsafe,’ including people with mental health and psychiatric disabilities. Is this a problem? If so why? #CripTheVote

Q5 What are some examples related to gun violence prevention that infringe on the privacy and rights of people with mental health and psychiatric disabilities? What can be done to stop them? #CripTheVote

Q6 What are some policy changes you would like to see to prevent mass shootings and gun violence in general that do not discriminate against disabled people and people of color, especially Black, Latinx and Indigenous people? #CripTheVote

Q7 What’s your take on the discussion around gun violence prevention and proposed policy solutions? Is it inclusive? Which communities are left out of the chance to shape policy and create solutions?  #CripTheVote

Q8 What are ways disability/mad/mental health communities can organize, work with, & support other communities in preventing gun violence? #CripTheVote

Q9 For people with disabilities who have other marginalized identities: how do we make sure everyone gets a ‘seat at the table’ when it comes to community organizing and activism? #CripTheVote

Q10 Do you have any ideas for how to engage from a disability rights perspective with strong gun control advocates, who may push for ANY curbs on guns, regardless of disability concerns #CripTheVote

Thank you for joining the #CripTheVote chat on gun violence and mental health. A special thank you to our guest host @yovimi for joining us today!
