Donald Trump, Memes, and Saw: AFRICAN REFUGEE BECOMES MONTANA'S FIRST BLACK MAYOR IN MORE THAN A CENTURY BLACK ENTERPRISE.coM Yass! 🙌🏽👏🏽✊🏾 ProtectTPS . Via @undocublack Repost @blackenterprise: WilmotCollins, 54, moved to Montana 28 years ago when he fled Liberia in 1990 during the country’s first civil war. He told The Globe and Mail that during the war, frequently the only thing to eat was butter mixed with mayonnaise. Along with his wife and five relatives, they crammed themselves into a single room near the American Embassy hoping it would serve as a safe haven as fighting raged across the city. Collins and his wife, Maddie, fled Liberia to Ghana, the Ivory Coast and finally, the United States.⠀ ⠀ President Donald Trump’s attack on immigrants around the country is in full swing. In a state whose African American population is less than 1%, Montana resident Wilmot Collins, a former civil war refugee from Liberia who was fairly new to the political scene, saw an opening. He seized the opportunity to counter the president’s narrative by sharing his own story.⠀ ⠀ “When people can relate to the real deal, they’re wide-eyed, because all they’ve heard is what comes out of our leadership,” he told The Globe and Mail. “There’s no way when people hear your stories and struggles they can’t identify with you.”

Bailey Jay, Children, and Community: ProtectTPS ElSalvador& Honduras& Nicaragua& Haiti&Yemen& Syria&Nepal& Somalia&Sudan &SouthSudan& Liberia&Guinea &SierraLeone “Always remember that the greatest act of solidarity is showing up, and that goes beyond a like, a tweet, a post or a comment.” Repost @IvanCejatv: “Today we stood in solidarity with immigrants from 13 countries that are impacted by TPS. These countries are El Salvador 🇸🇻, Honduras 🇭🇳, Nicaragua 🇳🇮, Haiti 🇭🇹, Yemen 🇾🇪, Syria 🇸🇾, Nepal , Somalia 🇸🇴, Sudan 🇸🇩, South Sudan 🇸🇸, Liberia 🇱🇷, Guinea 🇬🇳, and Sierra Leone 🇸🇱. These countries should also stand united and be acknowledged and that’s why I designed this shirt. 👕 . . I did not immigrate to the US from any of these countries. I am an undocumented immigrant originally from Michoacán, México 🇲🇽. I am a DACA beneficiary and I would be eligible for the DreamAct. However, some of my close friends and people in my community are greatly affected by the recent announcements and attacks on TPS. The saying goes — “an attack on one of us is an attack on all of us” & we can’t take this message lightly. RiseUpAsOne . . This is beyond 200,000 Salvadorans 🇸🇻 with TPS. This is about 192,000 citizen children that will also be affected. This is about the 59,000 Haitians 🇭🇹 - 2,000 Nicaraguans 🇳🇮 - from Sudan 🇸🇩 and the millions of us that call them neighbors, family and friends. ProtectTPS‬ . . Always remember that the greatest act of solidarity is showing up, and that goes beyond a like, a tweet, a post or a comment.” . . *Common TPS Question: If they’ve been here so long why haven’t they just become citizens? . . Answer: Because citizenship isn’t like ordering a pumpkin spice latte & you try ordering a pumpking spice latte when they aren’t being sold. There isn’t a pathway to citizenship for them.
