#BREAK­ING Mul­ti­ple sources tell me the Governor’s office has ordered TDCJ to clear out the pris­on­ers from one state prison — Briscoe Unit — so it can hold immi­grants picked up by Texas state troop­ers for low-level charges as part of Oper­a­tion Lone Star.

Courts are closed tomor­row for June­teenth. My incar­cer­ated clients, all of whom are black men, will remain in jail to cel­e­brate the eman­ci­pa­tion of slaves. This is America.

Joe Biden has now appointed more Black peo­ple to the fed­eral appel­late bench than Trump did in his entire presidency.

Biden has appointed exactly one fed­eral appel­late judge.

Please help sup­port the Water Pro­tec­tors and send a clear mes­sage that peo­ple of faith and good con­science will con­tinue to fight until the pipeline is stopped.

I am so proud and grate­ful for the coura­geous action of UUs and all who joined the #TreatyPe­o­ple­Gath­er­ing over the week­end to #StopLine3. Hun­dreds of Water Pro­tec­tors were arrested and as of yes­ter­day, 7 UUs were still in jail fac­ing fines of $3000 and/​or a yr in prison.
