via @daylaborernetwork on Facebook: If the President @barackobama wants to make his immigration policies “more humane,” there’s a lot of options available. After two million deportations, expanding deferred action is the least he can do.

I would be ecstatic if we are able to just end S-Comm & Criminal Alien Program. Mix in major regulations to Border Patrol and that’s a good start.
As hopeful as I am I don’t think a “DACA 4 All” will happen…This admin has been a major disappointment and I feel if anything does goes through, it will be more a limited DACA4All. For example, granting Deferred Action to Parents of DACA recipients or granting it to those with US Citizen family. But who knows, I’d love to be proven wrong!
And private prisons contracts aren’t going to end. There’s too much money in it for the government.
Bo is one of my bestest friends. She talks shit while being a sweetheart. This week, she shared her story. You can read it here.
Check out Bo’s story in this week’s Liberty For All.

End the unjust crack/cocaine sentencing disparity.
On Thursday, the CA Assembly will vote on a bill that would end the crack-coke sentencing disparity in the state. Tell the assembly that crack laws are out of whack and send #SB1010 to the governor: http://bit.ly/1szn8pk
México colocó retenes en frontera sur para bloquear paso de migrantes: cónsul de El Salvador — La Jornada -
Ante las acciones implementadas por las autoridades desde julio,“hemos visto que ha aumentado el flujo de migrantes por la vía marítima, por el lado de Tecún Uman (Guatemala) hacia Salina Cruz (Oaxaca), y por Tenosique (Tabasco), ruta que es muy peligrosa”.
Subrayó: “Al encontrar bloqueos en Tapachula. la gente recurre a rutas más peligrosas con tal de pasar hacia los Estados Unidos”. El diplomático también afirmó que el último año se ha incrementado “considerablemente” el número de menores acompañados y no acompañados de su país que intentan cruzar México.
The Mexican Government continues to violate its own principles and promises to allow the free transit and open movement of Centroamericanxs through the national territory, instead forcing migrants to take dangerous coastal routes to avoid checkpoints, seizures and raids.
8 Steps Undocumented Sexual Assault Survivors Can Take -
While almost always absent in literature on sexual assault, undocumented immigrant women and girls are particularly vulnerable to gender-based violence. Numbers are difficult to estimate, but a combination of complex challenges like immigration status, language and cultural barriers, lack of information and financial resources, social isolation, and fear of the police keeps many undocumented women from reporting their abuse and seeking help. Despite their immigration status, however, there are options available to undocumented survivors who seek redress, medical care, safety, and healing. Here are some of the steps undocumented survivors can take after sexual assault.
