HAPPENING NOW in Seattle: My daughter has joined other Jewish activists in civil disobedience #JewsAgainstICE. ICE office now in lockdown. 700 people arrested by ICE yesterday. This has to stop #NeverAgainIsNow #AbolishICE

Northwest detention center in Tacoma medically tortures undocumented people. Denying pain medication, medical care. Conditions are terrible.

.@amazon supplies ICE with technology and @Boeing supplies planes. This must stop. #JewsAgainstICE

ICE can’t hide from us. Northwest Detention Center changed their name to Tacoma ICE Processing Center. Too much bad press.

Martin Selig owner of ICE building gave Federal agents the right to enter the office & charge them w federal crime. The office had been cleared early except for 1 individual in anticipation of our action. They held office for 45 mins & chose to leave on their own #JewsAgainstICE

Speakers include Ashkenazi and Jews of color, native Duwamish, Hispanic immigrants who have personal experience with ICE. Decrying yesterday’s deportations and #WhiteNationalism. #CloseTheCamps

The brave folks who occupied ICE including my daughter. #ProudMom!

6 children and 2 trans women died in ICE custody. 10 people who occupied office today prayed, sang, and gummed up the works. ICE HAD ALREADY SENT THE OFFICE STAFF HOME! #JewsAgainstICE #Seattle

Filipino activist talks of root problems: US imperialism and policies. 6000 Filipinos leave their country every day in search of a better life.

Sign at #JewsAgainstICE action in Seattle:



Jewish identity is being weaponized against Congress people of color, weaponized in defense of oppressive of Palestinians. We will not stand for xenophobia, white nationalism, antisemitism. Enough. Jews standing in solidarity #NeverAgainIsNow
