Project of Permanent Resident for Dreamers

Republican Congress Member of  California  whose name is  Jeff Denham  endorsed by other 42 legislators, offered to the  House of  Representatives,  a project of law that would give the legal residence to dreamers that serve in the armed forces of the United States. They  consider  that it is a good option for the Immigration  reform. The only problem is that the benefit  will be possible  for  hundreds of thousands but less than one million immigrants in total, and this obviously, would not solve the problem of the  11 million undocumented immigrants,  even though, the Republicans are opposed to this project of law. Imagine, if they are opposed to give  the residence to the young person’s  that serve in the armed forces,  how they are not going to be opposed to a residence for millions of  families that really need it.

Immigrants rights against Immigration

The hearing  on the demand against the officers of Immigration,  was won by them, but the lesson that we learned on this case,  is that they do not have the right to enter in  a house simply with an order of deportation. They do not  have  an arrest warrant or an order to search inside a house issued by a judge, therefore,  we do not have the obligation to open the door  for immigration if they knock  at the door of the house. If the demand has been gained or  lost, it does not change anything. They  continue violating the rights, they continue the  abuses, this it is the reality  the  immigrants live every day with, so we have to continue trying, we have to defend ourselves, have to fight, appeal. Immigration  often make mistakes  in the interviews, in the court, in everything   at all times during the process. There are many mistakes and we have the  right to appeal and to defend ourselves.

Possible vote for the Immigration Reform

The Democrats in the House of  Representatives are going to present a motion to try to force the Republicans to have a vote on the Immigration  reform, the problem is that in order that they approve this motion they need the support of 24 republicans to be able to come to  the necessary 218  votes and it is not expected the support of the Republicans,  even  from the ones that support the Immigration reform because they do not want to defy the Republican leadership. Therefore, in summarized   accounts, what we had  is,  the Democrats  pushing for the Immigration reform, the Republicans blocking it, and in reality ,   until we have elections  at the end of the year,  and we have a potential change of leadership in the Congress is going to be extremely difficult,  almost impossible to have an  Immigration  reform,  because the Republicans are not  collaborating in allowing a vote for the  Immigration reform,  which is   what we are  needing and had  been fighting for  several years.

President Obama blames congress for deportations

President Obama is  blaming  the Congress for the high number of deportations, more than 2 million persons  have been deported during the Presidency of Mr. Obama. He says that it is the Congress  fault. They duplicated the number of agents of deportation, actually,  they are considering  the policies of deportation inside the country, because  President Obama has asked for a review of the practices of the deportations and is possible that they suspend the deportations that do not have criminal antecedents. It would be the ideal thing and a relief for our communities and the families that are being separated day after day. One  thousand  persons are being deported daily  from the United States, and It is a situation considered  unbearable for the Hispanic community, let’s hope that  President Obama takes the correct decision and  fulfill   his electoral promises to support the immigrants.

Group of Dreamers detained by Immigration

 

Once again, a group of dreamers, submitted to the authorities of Immigration, in the frontier crossing of Tijuana and San Diego, as part of a campaign to call the attention of the Government,  to approve an Immigration reform. The first group was integrated by 40 young  people  who are in custody of the authorities at this moment, and they are under  interrogations. They hope  they grant asylum to them to be reunite with their  relatives and return to  their home. These young people overcome the number of 140. There are 40 minors among them. They not only wait for some type of protection or migratory benefit but also, for many parents of family and other persons who have been deported or have been  in the obligation  to leave the country and to separate from their love ones. The point here is  that these dreamers are putting themselves  in danger,  because  who knows  what  Immigration  is going to do with them, or how much time they can detain  them. So, it is necessary to be very careful. They could ask for a travel permit, to  come and  go  legally  out  of the United States.

Detained aliens in hunger strike

Seven hundred and fifty persons detained  in a Center of Detention of Immigration,  are in a hunger strike, not only to protest in opposition to the deportations at national level, but to protest for the mistreatment the immigrants received  in the jails of Immigration. They say that the food is terrible, that  they do not have the necessary medical treatment for those persons who are sick, that are not enough familiar visits,  because  they are  only  allowed in weekends, and not during the weekdays. Also they say that there are many reports of rapes, not only  of the women, but of men also,   from  other immigrants  inmates, who  have been accused of being sexual predators, but also from  the same officers of Immigration.  Incredible but true. It is important that  we  have  the  knowledge of  what the persons are suffering in this  Center of Detention to take the  necessary  measures  to protect  and  defend ourselves,  before  any of us  fall in one of these detentions.

President Obama and the Immigration Reform

President Obama is in Mexico in meetings with the President of Canada and of Mexico, and supposedly they are going to touch the topic of the Immigration  reform. The great question is what impact can have this presidents’ meeting on the  Immigration reform in the United States. The only  way  that it can have an impact, and make  a difference for  the Immigration  reform in this meeting, is that President Obama takes a commitment to do some   more,  because simply to continue with the speeches, the interviews, defying, asking, breathing to the Congress,  has not worked  for  several years that he has been  in the same thing.  President Obama has to do something different. He has to press them in a concrete way to  fulfill his word. It has been said that he is ready to take Action on  his own if the Congress does not act, to give them a deadline, and if they do not approve an Immigration reform for that  date, to take action and  fulfill his word.

New tactic for the Immigration Reform

Something  extremely interesting  is being planned by the  Democrats, to force a vote on the Immigration reform without John Boehner’s authorization, who  is the leader of the Republican majority. He has blocked a vote for the Immigration  reform from last year , when President Obama, the leaders of the majority in the Senate and the leaders of the minority in the  House of  Representatives,  all say that there are enough votes to approve the Immigration Reform. We will see,   if these tactics  will  result,  because if it work, then we would see the possibility of an Immigration  reform this 2014, because there would be a negotiation between the House of  Representatives and the Senate and we would have hopes again to see a change in the laws of Immigration.

News on the Immigration Reform

The activists who defend the rights of the immigrants have said that in last instance, they would accept the Immigration reform to take effect in 2017, if and when that the Congress members approve it this year. The big question is what would happen with the immigrants in the 3 years, until 2017. In  2014, 2015, 2016, would they  have protection against deportation, would  they  have a  legal stay and  work  permit? All this are questions that need to be answered, but the ideal thing would be that if really the Congress members do not trust President Obama, they  approve the Immigration  reform, not  be effective  until 2017 and meanwhile, President Obama could approve the deferred action for the families, like  he  did it for the students, in order that they will not be deported, and have a work permit and   legal stay until the Immigration  reform is fulfilled, when  President Obama finished his period. This way,  they all win. The Congress members because they approved the reform and the Hispanic vote is gained, and  the  President Obama because I does not look  badly with the Hispanics,   for  given them a work  permit.

Negotiations are needed for the Inmigration Reform

Everybody  agree  that the  majority of the 11 million undocumented immigrants inside the United States,   should  be  granted a legal stay,   both the Democrats and the Republicans, for the first time in a lot of time,   are ready to give this important benefit  that includes a work permit, protection against the deportation, legal  stay,  travel permit and the residence; clearly, there are  differences  regarding the   citizenship, and the safety in the border and in all the requirements to which the Republicans want to add some more, but the details are  minor, and  they  have  to learn to negotiate, to put aside the egos and to come to a commitment,  probably  is not going to be everything  of what the  Republicans or the Democrats want,   but they have to reach an agreement in a law, although it is not perfect. This is the idea , if   they want to approve the Immigration reform.
