Nothing about our borderlands is welcoming -- families are still separated & criminalized for seeking asylum, refugee admissions are at the lowest they've ever been, and a militarized border has contributed to ongoing human rights violations by enforcement agencies, like CBP. As climate change, economic turmoil and violence (often the result of U.S. foreign policy) continue to drive migration, it’s on us to redefine what it means to seek safety in this country. Migration is not only natural, it’s a human right. ?️ #UprootedAndUplifted
If you believe... ➡️ In freedom of movement without criminalization ➡️ The border is sacred to indigenous folks & surrounding communities. ➡️ People have the right to migrate. ?️ Join me in the fight to redefine the border. #UprootedAndUplifted
FYI: The immigration problem goes far beyond “kids in cages." Cages can also look like detention centers, the inability to work and thrive, the legal & social obstacles faced by asylum seekers & refugees...the xenophobia & hate spewed by others. It's time we re-evaluated what it means to migrate. #UprootedAndUplifted
