Set Yourself on Fire

Californians for Safe Neighborhoods and Schools -

California friends who can vote, I have a favor to ask of you and that is to check out this website and inform yourself on an upcoming Proposition that will be in the ballot this November.

Proposition 47 is an initiative that I believe creates a step towards reforming our current Criminal Justice by slowly decriminalizing non-violent offenses and starts the deeper conversations on a rehabilitation approach instead of just locking everyone up. Restorative Justice. We need to fund schools & mental health programs instead of locking everyone up.

What the proposition would do is change 6 current low-level non violent felony convictions into misdemeanors. I personally still don’t understand the reasoning on how in the state of CA if you have two prior petty theft convictions (usually misdemeanors) your third will count as a felony (like seriously what the fuck). Possession of drugs and similar crimes like writing bad checks can land you with felonies and serious jail time. So this is a small step towards changing that and the proposition would be retroactive meaning people currently serving time for what would of been a felony petty theft charge, would receive an opportunity to recall their case before trial.

We will be saving millions of dollars as a state by releasing low-level non violent offenders and it would all be going to Education, Victim Services and Mental Health.

I encourage you to go and vote in favor of Prop. 47. We need these reforms.

CIYJA Responds to the President’s Cowardly Decision to Delay Executive Action on Immigration

ciyja:

 

California-  Saturday, President Obama announced a delay in his plan to use executive action to make changes in current immigration law until after the November elections. This is a step he took after being pressured by certain Senate and Congress members who feared that this may affect their chances. The reality is that President is forgetting that 1,100 people get deported every day, and each day from here until November will be devastating for families, workers,  and people who are currently detained, or in deportation proceedings.

 The President and Democrats are refusing to see that at this point it is not about Immigration Reform, it is about keeping families together and people out of detention. 

As the California Immigrant Youth Justice Alliance we won’t tolerate his actions, giving that at one point Democrats pandered to Latinos for votes. It is because of Latinos and Immigrants that the President and several congress members are in office. We will not stand back, and we will make sure they hear our voice from now until the midterm elections.

 “Once more, President Obama has chosen politics instead of doing the right thing. The Deporter in Chief and the Deportation Party have once again proven to be more concerned with elections than our immigrant community. After deporting 2 million undocumented immigrants, this President lacks the courage to turn course. This delay means that over 60,000 members of our community will be ripped apart from their families. As immigrant youth we are disgusted by this spineless decision and denounce President Obama for his failure in leadership. We cannot trust either political party to provide solutions and so instead we will continue to fight, with or without administrative relief.” - Luis Ojeda, Statewide Coordinator at the California Immigrant Youth Justice Alliance

Hmm…I don’t really get upset by many words. I suppose if they’re being used in a derogatory way I’d be somewhat upset but I usually embrace the words I get called most which would be illegal faggot. #pinchejotoillegalyque #ilovbeingaillegalfag #undocuqueerinnicerterms

Oh gurl that one needs some explanation but it would have to be when I spent 4 days in solitary confinement. I was in immigration detention at the time and it was for a stupid reason (false TB results).
