Secretary Napolitano:

Right a wrong & extend Deferred Action to deserving young immigrants                   

          By Tavia S.                   
         

Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), announced last summer by President Obama, prevents unjust and unnecessary deportation of hundreds of thousands of young people from the United States. It has been a lifeline for hardworking young immigrants brought to this country as children, enabling them to get an education, secure legal employment and safely emerge from the shadows. Sadly, young people from Haiti and certain other countries are being denied the same opportunity, simply because of a technicality in the DACA policy.

The problem: Under DACA, an applicant must have been out of immigration status on June 15, 2012, the day President Obama announced the new policy. This excludes young immigrants who on that day had Temporary Protected Status (TPS). One can gain TPS when the US government designates their home country as temporarily unsafe, as was Haiti after the devastating earthquake. As soon as the circumstances that caused the announcement of TPS for the country cease to exist, TPS can be terminated, leaving those who had TPS benefits subject to removal.

The reality: Many people with TPS share the same characteristics as DACA-eligible youth: they were brought to the US at an early age, have been living in the US for many years, and have attended schools and colleges here. If not for their TPS, they would be eligible for DACA. Under the current policy, however, when TPS is terminated for their home countries, these young immigrants will lose status and find themselves without recourse. And because they are known to the Department of Homeland Security due to their TPS applications, they will be at heightened risk of removal.

The solution: It is time to right this wrong and allow immigrant youths with Temporary Protected Status to apply for DACA.

Well ... uncharacteristically for them ... this whole current political discussion about "immigration reform" is not just about what to do about the 10-15 million (mostly Hispanic) illegal immigrants that are currently residing in the U.S.  The Congress is actually trying to come up with a comprehensive immigration policy that can be the "law of the land" when it comes to what to do and how to govern and regulate immigration.

 

They're supposed to be trying to cover ALL the bases ... since the current (mostly non-existent) immigration policy is probably (at least) decades old.  IF they succeed ... (and although it's looking good ... with this Congress it's still a big IF!!  ) .... it will probably be the only MAJOR piece of legislation that both sides will agree on in a long time.

"Obama’s focus on immigration: ignoring black issues once again?" by Crystal Wright, 02/14/2013

Blanca Flores, a member of Service Employees International Union (SEIU) United Service Workers West, holds a sign before a public viewing of President Barack Obama's speech on immigration  Jan. 29, 2013. (MARIO ANZUONI - REUTERS)

An increasing number of blacks appear to finally be  getting angry with President Obama and his policies. It’s just too bad it took four years and  voting for the president a second time for blacks to realize the president won’t  prioritize their issues. Immigration and the president’s determination to get  legislation passed granting amnesty to an estimated 11 million illegal  immigrants seems to be the straw that broke some black liberals’ backs.

Over the past week, some black Americans  have been calling  into black  talk radio shows like “Keeping it Real with Al Sharpton”,  complaining immigration is not an important issue to them.  This is despite  Sharpton’s plea to one caller that amnesty isn’t just a “Hispanic issue”. But  according to a 2009 Migration Institute  report, blacks from other parts of the  world only accounted for nine percent of  US immigrants.

With black  unemployment at 13.8 percent —  almost twice the  national rate of 7.9 percent — many argue that granting amnesty to more than 11 million illegal immigrants threatens to make jobs even more scarce  for blacks. As black radio host Earl Ingram noted his “listenership is  anti-immigration”  because they are angry illegals are here taking jobs from them  because they are  willing to work for less than minimum wage. A Pew Hispanic  report found during the height of the economic downturn 2009-2011 Hispanic employment grew  by 6.5 percent while black employment grew by a minuscule 1 percent.

After voting overwhelmingly for Obama twice, blacks want to know when the first black  president will focus on issues  impacting blacks like:  rising poverty, unemployment and incarceration ratesgrowing education gap and  economic decline of the black family?

When I tweeted  about this lack of  love blacks are feeling for their blind support of Obama a  second time around,  a black person replied: “Obama has always made it clear that he  is the POTUS  not the President of Black America.”

Indeed, Obama  is  “president of all Americans” but Obama has  made gay marriage a priority and less than 5 percent of the population is gay.  He’s also made illegal immigration a priority  because 71 percent  of Hispanics  voted for him but only make up 14 percent of the population.  These two groups  don’t look like the face of “all Americans.”  But Obama seemingly won’t even give blacks a crumb. For starters, he has yet to name one black person to fill a cabinet position in his  second term.

It may be too late for blacks  to influence Obama because he doesn’t have an election hanging  over his head.  But blacks should take a hard look at the gang of pundits and activists like Al  Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and organizations  like NAACP, Congressional Black  Caucus purporting to fight for what’s good for blacks and ask them what have  they done for blacks?

Blacks also need  to question the Congressional Black Caucus about its agenda . In its  press release outlining its plan for the  113th  Congress, the CBC states “For  more than four decades, the  Congressional Black Caucus policy agenda has  promoted and advocated for  legislation that supports social and economic  progress, . . .for African  Americans.”

So why  is  immigration reform a key item in the CBC’s agenda? “Advancing legislation  and  policies that lead to comprehensive immigration reform”, as they write,  will do nothing to improve the economic situation for blacks and many black Americans appear to be  waking up to this reality.

If black liberals are really at the lack of attention Obama is giving them, perhaps they should use this as a lesson. Instead of voting for candidates based on race or party, perhaps black Americans should try giving candidates a  thorough vetting before going to the polls and hold politicians accountable to  records  in exchange for votes. Maybe then blacks would start getting something  in  return for their vote other than the status quo.

Why The Black Caucus Looks The Other Way On Immigration” by Joe Guzzardi on May 9, 2003. 

 

Liberal Democrats want us to accept abortion and homosexuality (and illegal immigration).    Misguided Democrats, Reverend Al Sharpton, etc., etc., Barack "the Illegal Alien Bootlicking" Obama, etc., etc.,  even compare the "Dream Act/Amnesty for 20 Million Illegal Aliens" and Gay Marriage for "Homosexuals'" cause or movement to the Civil Rights movement of U.S. born Blacks, a comparison that is a mountain of Bullcrap!  Unlike illegal aliens, by the 14th Amendment, U.S. born descendants of slavery are indeed U.S. citizens who have a right to exist in the U.S., and are supposed to have Constitutional protections.

Part of me feels insulted that this Immigration legislation does not include Haitian immigrants, but part of me knows that it was the Latinos that go out and did all the work, protesting, negotiation, and Voting that would bring about such legislation.  Also, Latinos are in such great number in this country compared to Haitian immigrants, and volume means something in America (sometimes).  But, i also know that African American politicians sat back and did not one damn thing or said not one damn thing in the political arena regarding Haitian Immigrants (that I know of), and African Americans did not take to the streets with Haitian Immigrants to protest their deportation, their automatically being turned away from this country or the discriminatory imprisonment of Haitian refuges in deportation camps and prison in America.  (Nor have I seen anything or much that the Haitain American community did).

 

However, we did see Latinos protesting, hold those they elected accountable, strategizing as to who they would vote in office and try to vote out of office.  And, yes, President Obama does owe his election and his reelection partly to the Latino voter.  What it probably really boils down to is, the squeaky wheel gets the oil

Well ... one of the major problems with the subject of "immigration" as a whole is what is - and is not - considered an "immigrant" ... as well as what is - and is not - considered "illegal" is a moving target!! 

 

The MAJORITY of the "illegal immigrant" Hispanic population that are here are here because whey simply walked over the boarder!  There are many other "illegal immigrants" here (mostly non-Hispanic) for a variety of reasons:  some actually came here legally ... but just over-stayed their time.  Others managed to make it onto U.S. soil from the ocean without being caught.  Others, like many Haitians and Africans got to come here legally through "refugee" status ... and are not "illegal" at all ... but fall through "legal" immigration traps.

 

I think it's totally unfair that the reason why so many of one particular ethnic group (i.e., Hispanics) are here is because it was simply "easy as slicing melted butter" to get here!!    And now, those people are getting a "open path" to the opportunity to live the American dream.

 

I thin it's UNFAIR that so many OTHER ethnic groups do not/cannot have that same 'easy' opportunity. And no matter what new immigration policy is established, there is no way to ever make that right, fair or even.

 

Haitians and other African immigrants will get left behind on unfair "technicalities" .. due to the previous/current immigration laws being so archaic and a jumble of confusion.

All elected officials first duty and responsibility is upholding the Constitution and the oath of office to serve U.S. citizens and legal immigrants and not illegal immigrants.    Elected Black leaders are not even doing this, and a dysfunctional Black electorate keep them in office.  Hispanic elected officials serve not only Hispanics who are U.S. born and legal immigrants, but these individuals do what that can to serve illegal Hispanics too, but not at the expense of the rights of U.S. born Hispanics and/or those who are legal immigrants.

As I've stated a while ago, some years ago, the East Coast has an immigration problem where whites get in few questions asked. This has caused an increase in Russian and Albanian gangs and organized crime. This mess is never addressed when discussing immigration. African descended illegal immigrants almost always get turned out or their status is cut short as soon as their home countries become 'stable'.  Now look at what has happened in Boston. I told you all so.

Caribbean Nationals Detained In Miami are Not Criminals

Filed under: Headlines |
US Immigration Caribbean Immigrants photo

Hundreds of Caribbean immigrants are deported each year from the US

AFRICANGLOBE – A new report says that the majority of Caribbean and other nationals detained for deportation in Miami-Dade County through a controversial US federal immigration enforcement programme are not dangerous criminals.

The conclusions of the 57-page report “False Promises: The Failure of Secure Communities in Miami-Dade County”, released on Monday, are at odds with the stated objectives of Secure Communities, the federal programme launched in 2008.

Those goals are to detain and deport convicted Caribbean and other nationals who pose a threat to public safety and those who are repeat violators of immigration laws, such as immigrants who have returned to the United States after being deported.

“Contrary to these policy goals, we found that 61 percent of individuals ordered for removal from Miami-Dade County are either low-level offenders or not guilty of the crime for which they were arrested,” says the report, prepared jointly by Americans for Immigrant Justice, a Miami-based immigrant-rights group, and the Research Institute on Social & Economic Policy at Florida International University’s (FIU) Centre for Labour Research & Studies.

Under Secure Communities, the names and fingerprints of immigrants arrested by police in a given county are turned over to the US Department of Homeland Security, whose Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency checks for nationals who might be subject to detention and potential deportation.

ICE declined to comment on the report, but defended the Secure Communities programme.

“Over the past three years, US Immigration and Customs Enforcement has dramatically changed the way it conducts immigration enforcement,” the statement said.

“ICE implemented clear priorities, enhanced the use of prosecutorial discretion, and implemented a sustained focus on the identification and removal of criminal aliens and other priority individuals.”

ICE said that Secure Communities “has proven to be the single-most-valuable tool in allowing the agency to eliminate the ad hoc approach to identification used in the past, and focus on criminal aliens and repeat immigration law violators”.

Since its activation on October 27, 2008, through January 31, ICE said Secure Communities has helped deport more than 254,000 Caribbean and other foreign nationals who had been convicted of serious crimes, including more than 72,000, who had been found guilty of such crimes as murder, rape and sexual abuse of children.

“More than 95 percent of the 254,249 removals generated through Secure Communities clearly fell within one of ICE’s enforcement priorities,” the statement said.

To prevent abuses, ICE said, on December 21, it issued new guidance limiting the use of detention to those who meet the agency’s enforcement priorities, not those arrested for misdemeanors, such as traffic offenses and petty crimes.

But the report disagrees with ICE’s position.

“By ICE’s standards, only 18 percent of the individuals ordered for removal represent high priority public safety risks, and that number drops to a mere six percent  when we apply local standards suggested by Miami-Dade County’s Public Defender.

“Interviews with detainees also reveal that often residents are stopped by police for no apparent reason and subjected to detention and deportation,” it added.

Like I've said before .... IF it were Black people (Caribbean/African) - instead of Hispanics - that had been pouring over the boarder 20+ years ago in the same number that Hispanics have been .... they would have shut that border down so fast people's heads would still be spinning around on their necks to this day!!! 

 

There's no way in hell Whitefolks would have allowed even MORE of us to engulf this country (i.e., more people with dark/black skin).  But they (ignorantly/arrogantly/wrongly)THOUGHT they could (and were) "controlling" the Hispanic flow ... and it's now gotten out of hand and waaaaayyyy beyond their control!!

 

They totally miscalculated (i.e., were too stupid and didn't give one second's thought!!) to the 'automatic citizenship' issue of babies born here.  And so now they've allowed themselves to be 'over-populated' right out of control their own country!! 

 

But .... still and yet ... they continue to do everything they can to continue to unfairly harass and persecute Black populations .... when we should be the least of their worries!!  But ... It guess it's true that you can't *fix* stupid!!    And Clearly .... their ignorance has NOT been abated ... and they have yet to realize that they have MUCH BIGGER fish to fry than us.

Illegal aliens should be removed from U.S. soil, no matter what country he or she left to come here.  Misinformed, dysfunctional U.S. born Black men and women have also enabled and harbored illegal aliens from Mexico, El Salvador, Haiti, Somalia, Belize, Kenya, Jamaica, Trinidad, Nigeria, etc., etc., to enter the U.S.    The Black community, especially the "inner-city" of Compton, Detroit, Baltimore, Harlem, Oakland, New Orleans, etc., in communities formerly or presently predominated by U.S. born descendants of slavery are one of the weakest links for the entrance of illegal aliens from around the world into the U.S.
 
Illegal aliens from around the world are not taking over any U.S. born and legal immigrant Caucasian, Hispanic, Korean, Filipino, Chinese, Ethiopian etc., etc.,  affluent, middleclass or working class community.

Caribbean and African Immigrants Getting Blocked In New US Immigration Reform Bill

Filed under: Featured,Headlines |
Immigration Reform Bill photo

The new immigration reform bill only betters the plight of Mexican border jumpers

AFRICANGLOBE – Black lawmakers and civil rights groups are concerned by a proposal in the Senate’s immigration reform bill that would do away with “diversity” visas that are often a pathway for African and Caribbean immigrants to enter the United States.

Advocates said they haven’t seen evidence yet that a new merit-based program is an acceptable replacement for the diversity visas, which total 55,000 each year and are granted via a lottery.

Hilary Shelton, director of the NAACP Washington bureau, said he is telling lawmakers not to eliminate the diversity program when comprehensive immigration reform moves forward.

“At this point, we are urging lawmakers not to eliminate the diversity visa program,” Shelton told reporters. “This is one of the places in the bill that needs to be addressed. We will work with our friends in the Senate, and we have started working with our friends in the House as well.”

Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.), co-chairman of the immigration task force for the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC), called the Senate bill “a significant step in the right direction” but said his caucus is worried about the plan to eliminate diversity visas.

“With respect to the abolishment of the diversity visa lottery program, the CBC is extremely concerned that it might limit the future flow of immigration for people from certain parts of the world,” Jeffries said. “That’s troublesome, and we’re evaluating the merit-based visa proposal to determine if it’s fair and balanced.”

The diversity program makes 55,000 visas available each year to countries with low immigration rates to the United States. Those awarded the visas are chosen by a lottery, with about half typically going to African immigrants.

Republican lawmakers have targeted the program in the past for elimination, arguing the program’s lottery system can lead to fraud and undermine national security.

The Senate bill proposes ending the diversity visas in 2015 and creating a new, merit-based visa program. It would make 120,000 visas available per year, rising to a maximum of 250,000, depending on the need for them and the unemployment rate. Immigrants would earn points toward visas based on their education, employment, family ties and other criteria.

“The jury is still out on whether the merit-based visas will be sufficient to address the concerns we have identified with diversity visas,” said Wade Henderson, president and CEO of the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights. “We are concerned but we are still looking, and we are still making a decision.”

Some groups are furious with lawmakers for putting the diversity program on the chopping block.

“This is not a zero-sum game where we take from one to give to another. That is not how comprehensive immigration reform should work,” said Bertha Lewis, president of The Black Institute. “We are really, really angry about this diversity visa business.”

Jeffries said it was “too early to say” whether he would support the Senate bill without changes. The CBC is in talks with lawmakers negotiating a House immigration overhaul, he said.

“The situation is still very much in flux, and we won’t know until the end of the month what that bill might ultimately look like,” Jeffries said.

Rep. Steven Horsford (D-Nev.), another co-chairman of the CBC’s immigration task force, said the group met on Wednesday afternoon to discuss the diversity visa issue.

“We continue to be concerned about the discontinuation of the diversity waiver, and the fact that … African and Caribbean immigrants who are participating in the diversity visa [program] per year could lose that pathway,” Horsford said.

Horsford said CBC leaders have been in talks with immigration reform negotiators in both the House and the Senate. He suggested the merit-based replacement program was included in the Senate bill at the urging of the CBC.

“In large part, this alternative has been proposed because of our concerns with the diversity visa [discontinuation]. Meaning, we brought this issue up when we heard that it was being talked about [being] eliminated,” Horsford said. “And we said, ‘Look, without some meaningful alternative that ensures that all communities, including Caribbean and African immigrants, are protected, then, you know, we [the CBC] would have major concern.’”

Horsford said Rep. Yvette Clarke (D-N.Y.), another leader of the CBC’s immigration task force, has been in talks with Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.), a member of the Senate’s “Gang of Eight,” about diversity visas.

“And now that we have the language, and now that we can see the alternative specifically, we can, you know, begin to work on how it affects our communities,” Horsford said.

Horsford said he expected the House immigration reform bill would have similar language related to diversity visas and the merit-based replacement program.

Shelton of the NAACP said he was hoping for “a strengthening” of the diversity visa program in the immigration reform bill by increasing its numbers of visas and expediting their processing time.

“It has not been demonstrated yet that the merit-based visas that are being lifted up will solve the problems that diversity visas were intended to solve,” Shelton said. “There may be a need for an amendment to fix this problem in the future to help African and Caribbean immigrants.”

Has America historically shut its doors to African immigrants? INDEED!!!

 

Immigration is largely deemed a Latino issue but it affects black immigrants as well. While their numbers are relatively low, their history in this country is layered. Of course, the largest migration of people of African descent into this country was far from voluntary.

In the 19th century, many free African-Americans tried to flee the United States and this resulted in some surprising alliances.

The American Colonization Society, whose membership included slaveholders, for example, was created to transport free African-Americans “back to Africa,” specifically to modern-day Liberia. President Lincoln even considered emigrating former slaves back to their homeland.

But prior to the ACS’s formation in 1816, Paul Cuffee, a black man, began exploring transporting African-Americans to Sierra Leone, which Great Britain had selected in the 1780s for relocating black British settlers, many who were former U.S. slaves who had sided with the British during the American Revolution. Just before the Civil War, African-Americans like prominent businessman James Forten even championed settlement in Haiti, plus runaway slaves had long favored Canada.

Only ‘free white persons’ need apply

Congress made its preference for white immigrants clear with the passage of the Naturalization Act of 1790, offering citizenship to all “free white persons” after two years of residency. But black immigrants, especially from Saint-Domingue or modern-day Haiti, found their way to the United States during the late 1790s and early 1800s when that country was in the throes of revolutionary action. Most ended up in Louisiana prior to it becoming a part of the U.S. in 1803.

Pushback by individual states restricting persons from Saint Domingue, even those who were enslaved, from entering the U.S. occurred before then, however. Fearing slave insurrections inspired by the revolutionary activity in present-day Haiti, South Carolina began passing laws in 1791 restricting the importation of slaves from Saint Domingue.

Only two slaves per owner from Saint Domingue were permitted into the state. Other Southern states followed their lead, expanding the pool.

The city of Baltimore passed an ordinance in 1797 requiring slave owners to remove slaves imported from the West Indies between 1792 and 1797 from the city.

Shutting the door to Africans

After the Civil War, black immigration picked up significantly. An estimated 108,000 Caribbean immigrants, many literate and highly skilled, came to the United States between 1899 and 1932 and their presence didn’t go undisturbed.

In the 1920s, Congressman Ellison DuRant Smith of South Carolina was among those who debated whether the U.S. should “shut the door” to the “denizens of Africa.”

The Quota Act of 1921, limiting foreign-born immigrants to three percent of their population already in the U.S. as counted in the 1910 Census, also impacted Caribbean immigration along with the Immigration Act of 1924, which went even further by lowering that number to two percent.

An amendment proposed by Senator James Reed of Missouri aimed to outright ban black immigration period, but Booker T. Washington and many others worked to defeat it.

Still the Immigration Act of 1924 had devastating effects, as Caribbean immigration numbers plummeted from 10,630 in 1924 to just 321 in 1925.

 

Stereotypes stand in the way of progress

During World War II, Caribbean immigration picked up and was, once again, met by resistance, primarily in the form of the 1952 Immigration and Nationality Act or McCarran-Walter Act which targeted Caribbean migration to the U.S. through Great Britain.

Still, Caribbean immigration, thanks in large part to close relatives already living in the U.S., continued to rise steadily. The Immigration Act of 1965, also known as the Hart-Cellar Act, helped contribute to that rise through its greatly reduced restrictions on geography-based immigration and emphasis on family re-unification.

In the 20th century, Haitian immigrants have especially had it hard.

Although John F. Kennedy welcomed those fleeing the tyranny of President François “Papa Doc” Duvalier just before his assassination and definitely after, the invitation was rescinded, even though they kept coming, primarily to South Florida and New York.

Plagued by damaging stereotypes, Haitians were associated with tuberculosis in the 1970s and HIV/AIDS in the 1990s. When the democratically-elected Jean Bertrand-Aristide was overthrown by a military coup in 1991, Haitians began seeking refuge in the U.S. in even greater numbers, only to be returned to the turmoil by the U.S. Coast Guard.

In 2008, the Bush Administration denied Temporary Protective Status to Haitians fleeing deplorable conditions but the tide turned after the massive Haiti Earthquake in 2010.

A wave of refugees

According to In Motion, the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture website dedicated to black migration, voluntary African immigration to the U.S. picked up in the 1970s. Leaving war-torn areas and repressive regimes, refugees came in waves from Ethiopia and Eritrea in the mid-1980s and Sudan and Somalia in the 2000s.

A 2005 New York Times article proclaimed that “For the first time, more blacks are coming to the United States from Africa than during the slave trade.”

Since 1990, an estimated 50,000 Africans annually have come to the U.S. legally, a number scholars say trumps that of the Transatlantic Slave Trade in peak years. But voluntary African migration did occur before the 20th century.

In the 1860s, a steady stream of Cape Verdeans came to New England to work in the shipping industry.

On the heels of decolonization and widespread African independence in the 1960s, a trickle of Africans came to the U.S., with many pursuing higher education.

‘Diversity Visa’ future in doubt

Boons to African immigration include the Refugee Act of 1980, which allowed thousands of Africans fleeing civil and international conflicts in their own countries entry into the U.S., the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 resulted in over 31,000 illegal Africans applying for legal status, and the Immigration Act of 1990 established a lottery system, known as the “Diversity Visa,” that favors underrepresented nations and includes all African countries.

GOP plans to eliminate the “Diversity Visa” has placed immigration reform at the top of the Congressional Black Caucus priority list.

In January, Ayofemi Kirby, the CBC communications director told The Daily Caller that eliminating the Diversity Visa “would lower the number of [black] immigrants from countries who already have low number of immigrants . . . [in the United States], especially sub-Sahara and Africa.”

It would also affect Caribbean countries, she noted.

Caribbean is huge part of black community in U.S.

Black immigrants, especially from the Caribbean, have made significant contributions to the domestic African-American community as entrepreneurs and professionals.

Using Who’s Who in Colored America entries from 1915 to 1932, In Motion found that “over 8 percent of doctors, 4.5 percent of lawyers, more than 14 percent of businessmen, 4.5 percent of clergymen, over 3 percent of professors, and 4 percent of writers/authors had come from the Caribbean” despite a foreign-born black population of only.8 percent of the overall African-American population.

According to many reports, African and Caribbean immigrants are among the most educated in the overall immigrant pool. Nigerians reportedly lead all immigrants in educational attainment prior to entry in the U.S.

As the wealth gap widens between black and white Americans, losing such economic resources could devastate the U.S.’s overall black economy, especially since African and Caribbean immigrants tend to be very entrepreneurial.

But the U.S. has historically had a poor track record in welcoming black immigrants regardless of their talents, and it doesn’t seem to be changing.

Congress: Grant Temporary Protected Status for Malian Immigrants  

Petitioning Congress

This petition will be delivered to:

Congress
Department of Homeland Security
Secretary Janet Napolitano
 

Congress: Grant Temporary Protected Status for Malian Immigrants  

    1. Petition by

      United African Organization

       
  1.  

 

Over the last twelve months, the situation in northern Mali has escalated, with the resignation of the Prime Minister and the inability of the government to respond appropriately to the destructive armed insurgency. 

Over 350,000 people have been displaced and many are unable to meet their basic needs as they struggle to recover from forced evacuations as well as the remnants of a severe drought earlier in 2012.

Given the current situation, deporting hundreds of Malians from the United States would only exacerbate this volatile climate and needlessly place people in perilous situations.

Temporary protected status (TPS) designation for Mali would protect those Malians in the US that need stability until the violence and conflict in their home country subside. TPS would allow those who are eligible to live, work, and study in the United States until it is safe for them to return home. In addition, TPS would enable Malians to provide support and aid to their families and communities, offering relief to those affected.

 

To learn more about the crisis in Mali, listen to our Malian Voices podcast from February 2013.

For over a year, the situation in northern Mali has escalated, with the resignation of the Prime Minister and the inability of the government to respond appropriately to the destructive armed insurgency. Over 350,000 people have been displaced and many are unable to meet their basic needs as they struggle to recover from forced evacuations as well as the remnants of a severe drought earlier in 2012. Given the current situation, deporting hundreds of Malians from the United States would only exacerbate this volatile climate and needlessly place people in perilous situations.
TPS designation for Mali would protect those Malians in the US that need stability until the violence and conflict in their home country subside. As you know, students and visitors are particularly vulnerable as they have to adhere to strict visa regulations. TPS would allow those who are eligible to live, work, and study in the United States until it is safe to return home in Mali. In addition, TPS would enable Malians to provide support and aid to their families and communities, offering relief to those affected.
The United States has granted TPS to nationals of Syria, Sudan and South Sudan during ongoing armed conflict, unrest, and turmoil in those regions. When Haiti was ravaged by an earthquake, the administration responded by granting Haitians TPS. Temporary Protected Status is now an urgent need for Malian nationals in the United States as a protective measure to ensure their safety until the country is stable.
We urge you to designate Mali for TPS and would welcome a meeting with your staff to discuss this important issue.
Mali is a unique heritage of world civilization, and we urge the administration to work with the African Union and the Economic Community of West African States in restoring peace, stability, and security in Northern Mali.

Sincerely, [Your name]

"Immigrants to the U.S. Need Lessons In Racial Justice"

 

What and Why should they??   Definitely not at taxpayers expense.

 

Illegal Aliens who violate the law and/or the rights of law abiding U.S. citizens, the law abiding citizens in this instance being U.S. born and Black, the illegal alien perpetrators should be fined and deported, with additional penalties for anyone who harbors these individuals, or should any of these illegal alien criminals return to the U.S. , they should be fined again and deported.   Jailing them would mean that the taxpayers would have to foot the bill for any time served in jail.

 

sunnubian  are you a U.S. born descendant of slavery, or are you one of many black immigrants (Haitian, Somali, Kenyan, Nigerian, Ethiopian, West Indian, etc.) who came to the U.S., who may or may not be a naturalized U.S. citizen?

 

It amazes me that even one U.S. born black man or woman would be defending or siding with any illegal alien faction against any U.S. born descendant of slavery maimed or killed by any felonious and criminal illegal alien, for whatever reason.

 

https://www.africanamerica.org/...t/320064903655909994

 

Pete O'Neal being a U.S. citizen by birthright and who also a U.S. born descendant of slavery, definitely has more right to set foot on U.S. soil, than any illegal/undocumented immigrant seeking Amnesty or the passage of the "Dream Act" for the benefit of illegal alien anchor babies and extended illegal alien family members.

 

"Pete O’Neal’s family said he was exiled to Africa for 43 years because he did not want to go to prison for a crime he did not commit."

 

...and no one, including anyone who have serve time for a past criminal act that he or she clearly are guilty of,  should serve a day in jail, or pay so much as a dollar in fines, if evidence exists to prove the he or she are not guilty as charged for any other criminal act.

 

http://www.ask.com/wiki/Pardon?o=3986&qsrc=999

 

1.  A Pardon is used to excuse someone who truly committed the act.

 

2.  The best recourse for anyone who knows he or she is innocent is to demand to be acquitted, seek redress and compensation for any hardship endured for being falsely charged, indicted, fined, and/or jailed.

 

3.  This is why the Congressional Black Caucus, including Congressman Emmanuel Cleaver, numerous no good Black lawyers, the NAACP, and/or other individuals are as worthless as worthless can get.

 

4.  Geronimo Pratt maintained his innocence, and the attorneys who represented him, one being Attorney Johnny Cochran, who was involved near the end, enabled Geronimo Pratt to be cleared of any wrong, and GP was compensated for the years served in prison for criminal act or murder that he did not commit.

This is not 1865, and the Dread Scott decision has no bearing on what happens today.   The only enslavement that U.S. born Blacks face today is the obstacles that he or she place on themselves and/or any treasonous misfit from within the Black community itself who contributes to disparaging Constitutional protections.

If you only see African Americans in the stereotypes created by the American/Western/Hollywood/Racists propaganda machine, you would believe something like that.

 

However, the majority of African Americans work, pay taxes and are law-abiding citizens, just like everyone else.  But, it is only African Americans that are always viewed throughstereotypical lenses of American/Western/Racists' propaganda that only shows American citizens that may "trash" their citizenship if they happen to be Black, while negating to show that EACH AND EVERY deviant behaviors Black people/African Americans engage in in America, is the SAME deviant behavior engaged in America by people of each and every race of people in America

 

Another thing that is done in America ONLY where Black people/African Americans are concerned, is to present juvenile, young immature behaviors of some African American youth as a indicative of the entire Black/African American race in America. 

 

So, Black youth fads become the behavior or "culture", etc. of ALL African American/Black people, in the minds of those who don't know any African Americans, those of other races, and even in the minds of other Black people if they are detached from their own people to the point that they too have only the images and propaganda produced by the Western/American/Racist propaganda machine as their measuring stick, orthey too, have succome to the Western/American propaganda machine  psychological tactics against Black people themselves. 

 

Truth is, that there are no more African Americans "trashing" their citizenship than there are White Americans, Latino Americans, or any other race or ethinic group of Americans, it's just that it is nearly ONLY African Americans that are under constant surveillance in the first place, therefore, can be made to appear to be the only ones, or the majority of people that . . . whatever fill-in-the-blank the Western/American/Racist/[and Political] Machine choses for it to appear to be.

 

Finally, immigrants to the United States do the same things that natural born Americans do, the good, the bad and the ugly.  Immigrants to this country are no more Sainted than natural born Americans and certainly no more than African Americans.  Because regardless of how or what all they went through to get here [most just showed up without ever going to anything in particular], they come here and get involved in crime, break the law, sell and use drugs, act as drug mules, commit fraud, swindle Americans, commit violence and murder against each other and other Americans, are involved in the the pimping, slave, human trafficking trade, break American laws, rules and regulations, some even try to bomb Americans.  In other words, immigrant or natural born citizen, Black, White, Latino, Asian, Christian, Muslim, Jewish, rich or poor, all people do the same things, all groups of people, just like African Americans, have their percentages that are deviant, cold-blooded, ignorant, young and immature, gullible, and that break the law/"trash" their American citizenship; however, it is ONLY Black people/African Americans that it is constantly pointed out in.



"Ironically, while U.S. born Blacks trash his or her Citizenship rights,  immigrants and illegal aliens from around the world take all types of life threatening chances for one opportunity to set foot on U.S. soil, or to one day become a naturalized U.S. citizen."
 
Not only do I believe it is a fact.
 
 1.  A dysfunctional Black electorate continuously vote for individuals who don't respect the Constitution, the "oath of office", or the rule of law, who step up to the plate for illegal aliens before serving the first law abiding U.S. born descendant of slavery, all while the Black community remains silent.  Responsible voting  citizens hold elected officials financed by his or her tax dollars accountable to the Oath of Office, the Constitution, and the Rule of Law.  Unfortunately, there are far more dysfunctional voters than responsible voting citizens in most any voting block composed of Black voters.   The political process, and voting process in the Black community amounts to a popularity contest between misfits, blatantly inept, carpet-baggers, unethical, and sleazy individuals.

60 Minutes, Sunday, March 24, 2013, “Blindsided: The exoneration of Brian Banks”.

 

The woman, Wanetta Gibson, who made the false claim of rape against Brian Banks is black.

 

As his day in court approached, Brian says that his lawyer feared that he wouldn’t get a fair trial, based on his age, size & race. So she, an African-American herself, convinced Brian to plead no contest to a crime he insisted he didn’t commit.”

 

-Attorney Elizabeth Harris should be barred from practicing law in California or in any other State that she may hold a license to practice law.

 
2.  No good Black attorneys siding with the perpetrators or advising his or her innocent client to plead no contest, because the only expertise that these inept attorneys have is "playing the race card".   Individuals who have actually filed claims in pro persona, have more sense and competency in protecting his or her own Constitutional rights, and best interests than many spineless, sellout, and dysfunctional "race card" playing Black lawyers licensed by the State to practice law

3.  There are members on this board, African America.org who believe and even state that U.S. born Black men and women do not have any rights in the U.S., using nonsense such as the Dread Scott decision of 1865, and/or following the lead of dysfunctional university professors who believe same in the year 2013 to support his or her argument.

4.  Illegal immigrants from around the world who just got off the boat and his or her lawyers have more sense, have more backbone, are more likely to hold agents and officials of government such as rogue police officers, inept elected officials, and/or other public servants who violate his or her rights.
 
 
5.  Typically Black lawyers are too busy selling out, or bending over backwards to represent or free Caucasian criminals such as formerly employed by the Cochran Law Firm attorney Shawn Holley who represented no good trailer trash Lindsay Lohan, until Shawn Holley was no longer useful and fired by Lindsay Lohan.
 
 
 
 
6.  I don't need West American/Western/Hollywood/Racists propaganda machine ideology to validate my statements, because I have actually been a plaintiff and a defendant, who has been betrayed by no good Black lawyers who had all the facts but who instead state "forget about the Constitution....Keep it Simple", a black court clerk who signed a court judgment at my expense, have been betrayed by no good dysfunctional Black elected officials, and also know of other individuals from within the Black community who have been misrepresented and betrayed by this garbage as well.
