This woman was detained and told to leave the airport for being trans 

Shadi Petosky just wanted out of Orlando, Florida. On Monday night, Petosky, a 35-year-old transgender woman, attempted to board a flight at Orlando’s International Airport when she was detained by the TSA. The reason? An “anomaly” — her genitals. The TSA does have a policy for treating trans fliers, but there’s just one problem with it.

We are fighting for the release of 3 people being detained here. Two had proper immigrant visas, the other is a lawful permanent resident. But there are many more around the united states who need to get back in the country to get to their families and their lives. People put an immense amount of time and money trying to get their green cards, this is unconstitutional and unamerican. Among the wonderful people I met today, 3 of them are immigrants to this country and are afraid that they’re next. When i went to the statue of liberty it read “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, the wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me” and last time i checked, it hasn’t changed. ❤💛💚💙💜
