You should be outraged by the murders of 26 Nigerian girls

Last week, the bodies of 26 Nigerian girls, aged between 14 and 18, were found floating in the Mediterranean Sea. Autopsies of the bodies confirmed that they drowned while attempting the dangerous and all too often deadly crossing from Africa into Europe. Theirs is a story that’s all too familiar: rather than being treated as murder at the hands of xenophobic, militaristic, nativist states, the deaths of migrants, Black people, and girls are all too often erased and ignored. Their names unknown, their lives cut short, these girls’ deaths are a deliberate attempt by the state to deter migrants, by any means necessary.

Upon rescinding the program, Trump suggested it was up to Congress to come up with a legislative solution to DACA before March 5, 2018 (the date when the first work permits are set to expire and hundreds of people become eligible for deportation). Here’s where the program stands today and how you can join the fight to defend DACA.

"Feminists Against Borders" by UK Feminist Fight Back

John Kelly, Jane Doe, and Sacred White Womanhood

This past week has proven, yet again, that Republicans’ purported concern for the “sacredness of life” doesn’t actually extend to people of color, immigrants, or poor people. It’s also shown how far some liberal feminists still have to go in understanding just how central patriarchal rhetoric and policies are to U.S. foreign and domestic policy.

Dear Women’s Marchers: DACA’s Gone. Keep Your Promise To Make Trump’s Life Impossible

Last weekend, the Women’s March threatened to make Trump’s life impossible if he ended DACA. Today, Trump’s Attorney General officially announced the end of the program. The lives of 800,000 young immigrants and their families now hang in the balance. Women’s Marchers, I’m asking all five million of you to keep your promise.

Late Sunday, White House aides leaked to Politico what we’ve all feared for months: Trump is ending DACA, the Obama-era program that has protected 800,000 immigrant youth from deportation and afforded them the opportunity to live and work in the U.S. without fear.
