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.
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.
The Congress members are so complicated by the offers of an Immigration reform in the past, that they have never come to an agreement yet, because they want to solve the problems in the border. They want to work with the students, with the workers of high technology, of the agriculture, of the internal safety, work permit, residence, citizenship. They complicated it so much, that is difficult to come to an agreement, instead of looking for easy solutions, for example, to extend the 245-I law, that expired on April 30 of 2001, which allows the persons to pay a fine of $ 1.000.oo dollars, for having entered undocumented, if they have a familiar or a labor petition before this date, April 30 of 2001, for example, of an American son or a boss. If they extended this law of 13 years, since April 30 of 2001 until April 30 of 2014 or 2015, millions of persons would be benefit, without the need of a new law, simply extends a law that already exists, something like that, could be an easy solution.
Many persons are asking me about the Obama Care, they are worried by the deadline of March 31 that already passed, for the fines, the medical coverage; an undocumented person does not have the obligation to fulfill with the Obama Care, it is not indispensable that they had a medical insurance, is good if a person without papers of immigration, can have a private insurance if it is possible, can have coverage, but it is not obligatory, they are not going to apply any fine to him, do not apply for the deadline, because they do not have legal stay, they do not have a Social Security number, and they can make it an obligation under these circumstances, so that you know, if you have work permit, residence or citizenship, you have to register with Obama Care, if you do not have it is optional and not obligatory. Do not fell oblige.
President Obama has said that it is not an option to stop the deportations while the Congress decides if it’s going to approve an Immigration reform and at the same time, he does not give an explanation about why he is not going to stop the deportations, in spite of the strong critiques from the groups that defend the rights of the Immigrants, saying that it has no sense that they continue deporting the persons who are going to qualify for the migratory reform.
Many persons feel that Immigration has committed a mistake in their case, like they deported them, or deported a relative, detained a love one, denied his case, and it is important to understand that Immigration make mistakes every day, is not a perfect Agency, as any agency of the government, they make mistakes, commit faults, and are subject to demands, appeals, judicial orders, and it is a constant battle with any agency of immigration or of the government, nobody is exempt, so if you feel that immigration has done something wrong in your case, anything improper, that they did not give you an opportunity, that they could had had more consideration, you can always appeal, you can always demand, immigration not always has the reason, so it is necessary to try, is never necessary to fight and It is possible to demand, immigration not always has the reason, so it is necessary to try, it is necessary to fight and never give up without a fight.
Many persons wanted to go visit their relatives in their countries, never lack that somebody has not seen their father, mother or children for more than 10 years, what happens frequently is that someone in the family falls ill, and there is an emergency for going to see them and be with them before they could lose them, but a travel permit can only be granted if is base in another pending case, for example, a request of residence, an approved of asylum, the TPS, the deferred action, and there are other cases, especially with the TPS and the deferred action for the students. The travel permit is super important, because if they do not have deportation, and allows them to go out of the country, and with a legal entry, it opens the doors for them to be able to become residents on many different ways as for example, a familiar request, or from a company or from a boss.
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 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.
What many people want is a work permit, and what they do not know is that is not possible to ask for the work permit alone, it has to be based on something as for example a request of asylum, TPS, deferred action, the residence, inclusive it is possible to obtain the work permit when someone has a request of the law of 10 years, or with a final order of deportation, if they grant you an order of supervision, but the key is that the work permit is always given with something else, they do not give it independently, so the work permit is something indispensable for many persons because, the moment that you have it, you are already legal, you cannot be deported, but has to be based on something, to have to be able to obtain it, so my recommendation is that be advise well, to be able to obtain this work permit, that we want so badly.
