COVID-19 Response

Like everyone else, we urge you to wash your hands and engage in social distancing.

Unlike everyone else, we urge you to also help with this smart plan to get more tests, ventilators, and PPE. Everyone can do that plan right now, at home, in just 15 minutes.

If enough people help with the plan we can save lives. Take time out now and help get more desperately-needed supplies.

@feliciasonmez @ddale8 I doubt this very very much. If anything i'm guessing Trump was received politely but with disdain.

Can you direct me to anything Sonmez has ever said ever having any impact on Trump? Has she put him on the spot on anything? Has she shown him wrong to his base? Haven't those like her only ever helped Trump? MT @SPTO MT @feliciasonmez [snarks about Trump's Dayton trip]

.@donmoyn: @feliciasonmez didn't mention how the DREAM Act would balloon the labor supply, harm American workers & students, & braindrain struggling foreign countries that need all the people they can keep. It's lazy colonialism, if you really think about it as I'm sure you have

@feliciasonmez Damn Right! Build a WALL!!

From @24aheaddotcom_
.@CLLamont2: @feliciasonmez isn't going to build a "wall". If you want to actually solve problems, undercut her to her base by pointing out to them that she didn't reveal the huge downsides of the DREAM Act. Help discredit her *to her base* & you'll do a huge public service.

From @24aheaddotcom_
.@CLLamont2: one of the many problems with Trump's "wall" is that it won't last. Congress obviously opposes it. Every likely future Congress would oppose it. Congress controls spending. So, when Trump's out of office, they'll neglect or just tear down the "wall".

@feliciasonmez @seungminkim Is this the new “Mexico will pay for it”?

From @24aheaddotcom_
.@GA_Star_Gazer: Trump has an answer for "you said MX would pay for the wall!" It should be obvious to any smart movement when a talking point doesn't work, but years later #TheResistance keeps repeating the same failed talking points expecting a different result.
24AheadDotCom_'s avatar
From @24aheaddotcom_
.@monarchlady222: if Trump were sincere, his plan would be OK because he's playing the odds. MX overstay % is probably much greater than FR's. That said, the smart thing would be to challenge Trump proxies on how his plan will fail miserably. Name a leader who's doing that.

From @24aheaddotcom_
.@Nasser22820844: the much more important issue is that @feliciasonmez is pushing yellow journalism & going easy on Trump. Moore is most vulnerable on his immigration position. She & the WaPo won't go after him where he's most vulnerable because they (ie, Bezos) agree with him.
