Obama agregó que su gobierno incluirá en el proceso legislativo a todos aquellos involucrados en asuntos de reforma migratoria para que “piensen cómo vamos a enfrentar este problema”.

Piden a Obama que Frene el Muro

TUCSON

– Tres semanas después de la toma de posesión, varios congresistas que representan a comunidades fronterizas solicitaron al presidente Barack Obama que suspenda temporalmente la construcción

del

muro de separación con México hasta que se evalúen las operaciones de seguridad en la zona.

Mejores opciones

En una carta firmada por siete representantes de distritos de los estados de Texas, Arizona y California, los funcionarios sostuvieron que, aunque entienden la necesidad de proteger la frontera, hay lugares donde la estructura divisoria no es la mejor opción.

La redada y el Presidente

Las redadas no han parado con la presidencia de Barack Obama. Es verdad que el presidente tiene muchas cosas en la cabeza, incluyendo dos guerras y la peor crisis económica a nivel mundial en 80 años. Pero Obama en la Casa Blanca no se puede olvidar de los inmigrantes y de sus promesas de campaña.

According To Slate, “Ted Cruz May Be The Most Gifted Liar Ever To Run For President”

Posted by on Jan 26, 2016 in Connecticut Immigration, Immigration News | 0 comments

William Saletan of Slate writes that “Ted Cruz is the only true conservative running for president. That’s the message of his campaign: He’s the only senator who stood and fought against amnesty, Obamacare, and Planned Parenthood. His finest hour was the defeat of immigration reform three years ago. Democrats wanted to give illegal immigrants a path to citizenship. Cruz said no. He took on the establishment and won. It’s a good story, and the immigration fight tells us a lot about Cruz. But the fight didn’t happen the way he says it did. Cruz didn’t marshal the opposition or even take a firm stand. He’s a lawyer, not a leader. He chose his words exquisitely so that down the road—say, in a future campaign for president—he could position himself on either side of the immigration debate. And he delivered, with angelic piety, speeches that he now claims were lies. Cruz told his version of the story last month at a campaign debate in Las Vegas. The “battle over amnesty,” he said, was “a time for choosing.” In that battle, Cruz stood with Sen. Jeff Sessions of Alabama to secure the border. Sen. Marco Rubio, Cruz’s Republican presidential rival, stood on the other side, colluding with Democrats to push “a massive amnesty plan.” “I have never supported legalization,” Cruz told the debate audience. In fact, he asserted, “I led the fight against [Rubio’s] legalization and amnesty.” I’ve studied nearly every word Cruz uttered during the immigration showdown. I’ve put it together in a timeline that runs from January 2013, when Cruz was sworn in, to the end of June 2013, when the Senate passed the bill. The timeline, which you can read here, shreds Cruz’s mythical account. But it also paints an unsparing portrait of how Cruz—who has now clawed his way to the front of the Republican presidential pack—thinks and operates. Here’s what really happened and who Cruz really is. In January 2013, when Cruz entered the Senate, he held the same view he espouses today. The proper way to deal with the millions of undocumented immigrants in this country, he said, was to “enforce the laws.” That meant barring them from employment and deporting them. Democrats wanted to offer these people a legal route to stay and earn U.S. citizenship. Cruz opposed that idea. Such a concession, he argued, would reward lawbreakers and punish honest people who were waiting to immigrate legally. In late January, a bipartisan group of eight senators—four Democrats and four Republicans, including Rubio—issued an immigration reform proposal that included a path to citizenship. Cruz could have ruled that provision out, but he didn’t. For months, he expressed “deep concerns” about it but made no commitment. He cautioned that a path to citizenship would alienate many Republicans. But when reporters asked Cruz the yes-or-no question—“Would you vote against anything that has a path to citizenship?”—he refused to answer. One plausible reason for Cruz’s reticence was that he wanted changes in immigration policy. He favored tighter borders, better enforcement, and an easier process for law-abiding applicants. He might be able to get those things in a deal. Furthermore, a path to citizenship was popular. In polls, more than 60 percent of Americans endorsed the idea, depending on how the question was phrased. Even self-identified Republicans supported...

“La reforma migratoria no pesa en los informes de Obama sobre el Estado de la Unión”

Posted by on Jan 25, 2016 in Comercial de Inmigracion, Inmigracion de Connecticut | 0 comments

Univision reporta que “La legalización de indocumentados fue uno de los principales objetivos políticos de Barack Obama durante la campaña 2008. Prometió una reforma migratoria en el primer año de su mandato y el compromiso se convirtió en deuda. Cuatro años después, en 2012, volvió a prometerla y esta vez se topó con una férrea resistencia republicana en la Cámara de Representantes, a pesar de que el 27 de junio de 2013 el Senado, con respaldo bipartidista, aprobó un proyecto que incluyó un camino a la ciudadanía para la mayoría de los sin papeles. Mientras los indocumentados aguardan una oportunidad para legalizar sus permanencias –la estadía sin documentos sigue siendo una falta de carácter civil no criminal-, el Departamento de Seguridad Nacional (DHS, por su sigla en inglés) sigue deportando. La cantidad de expulsados desde que Obama se instaló en la Casa Blanca pasa de los 2.5 millones. Durante la primera Administración (2009-2012) la Oficina de Inmigración y Aduanas (ICE, por su sigla en inglés) deportó un promedio diario de 1,200 indocumentados. En el año fiscal 2015 la cifra bajó a 648 por día, el equivalente a casi dos por minuto. Y el 41.1% de ellos no tenía antecedentes criminales, reconoce la propia Casa Blanca.”” Por articulo entero por favor lea:...

Hillary: Raids Not an ‘Appropriate Tool to Enforce the Immigration Laws’

Posted by on Jan 23, 2016 in Connecticut Immigration, Immigration News | 0 comments

CSN News Reports that Hillary Clinton says “no,” she is not going to be the next deporter-in-chief, a nickname given to President Obama by a Latino group that opposes deportations. The issue came to a head over the holidays, when Immigration and Customs Enforcement began rounding up and deporting adults with children who entered this country illegally after May 2014. “This should come as no surprise,” Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said in a statement. “I have said publicly for months that individuals who constitute enforcement priorities, including families and unaccompanied children, will be removed.” The raids prompted outrage among some Democrats and their Hispanic allies. “I have come out against the raids,” Clinton told Fusion Monday night. “I do not think the raids are an appropriate tool to enforce the immigration laws. In fact, I think they are divisive, they are sowing discord and fear....

Greater New Haven scenes play role in new video that appeals to Obama to halt deportations

Posted by on Jan 23, 2016 in Connecticut Immigration, Immigration News | 0 comments

The New Haven Register reported the following: A video showing immigrants at work and with their families, part of an appeal to the Obama administration to halt deportations, features scenes and faces that will be familiar to residents of Greater New Haven. Kica Matos, director of immigrant rights and racial justice at the Center for Community Change, and media consultant Frank Chi, put the piece together originally to counter the harsh references to immigrants made by Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump. She said Chi’s video will now serve the purpose of rallying advocates to stop the administration from targeting the last big wave of immigrants, many of them women and children, who came here in summer of2014 to escape the violence in Central America. In “Felipe’s Letter,” U.S. Rep. Luis Gutierrez, D-Chicago, can be heard reciting parts of a letter written by Felipe Montes to his three young sons, who were left behind when he was picked up by Immigration and Custom Enforcement officials in North Carolina on traffic violations and deported in 2010. “The best memory that I have in my life is being with you and your mother,” Montes wrote to them. “I never wanted to leave you,” he said, explaining what happens when you don’t have the correct immigration papers. As the narrative continues there are scenes of immigrants in New Haven at Diner 91 on Middletown Avenue, at a bus stop at Grand Avenue and Ferry Street; wiring money home at a mom and pop store on Ferry Street, as well as children playing at a Wilbur Cross High School basketball court. The day care sequence was shot at El Buen Camino in West Haven, while the workers in a restaurant were at Lao Sze Chuan in Milford. “I want to see you become good men, good people. That’s what I want for you — the best in the world,” Montes wrote. “I love you and my family before and after anything else. My family is my life.” There was much press coverage of Montes’ case when his wife was unable to care for the children and North Carolina moved to take away Montes’ parental rights and keep his American citizen children in foster care. Montes didn’t see his children for two years, but a judge ultimately granted him custody and the children, ages 7, 5 and 4, now live with him in Mexico. Matos said more than 2 million undocumented immigrants have been deported since 2009. “Deportation has a devastating impact on kids who end up in foster care situations,” she said. The civil rights activist said Montes’ case “speaks to the real pain of family separation.” Matos said the scenes in the video are of real people living their lives here who agreed to be filmed when approached by Matos, Chi and John Lugo of Unidad Latina en Accion, who heads a local advocacy organization. “We are using it (Montes’ story) as a portal to show what immigrants lives are like. There is no unique concept,” Chi said. He said the media will often talk in abstractions, while he criticized Trump for “demonizing” immigrants. “We are responding to hate with love,” Chi said. The film maker was critical of President Barack Obama for failing to advance immigration reform generally and “for going through his seven years in office and barely mentioning immigration,”...
