Michelle Obama to Latinos: We Can't Wait for Congress to Fix Immigration

AP
In New York City, First Lady Michelle Obama spoke at the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) convention, promising that her husband would act on his own to fix the broken immigration system.
“So make no mistake about it, we have to keep on fighting as hard as we can on immigration,” she said as the crowd cheered. “And as my husband has said, he’s going to do whatever administrative action it takes to fix this broken system.”
Obama reminded the attendees that they couldn’t wait for Congress to act on their future and urged them to seize opportunities on their own.
“We cannot afford to wait on Congress to lift up our next generation. We can’t afford to wait on anybody when it comes to our kids’ future,” she said. “Your grandparents and parents didn’t wait for opportunities to come to them. No, they packed up their families and moved to this country for a better life.”
The First Lady reminded them of the history of social injustices that Latinos suffered in America which inspired the founder of LULAC to start his organization in 1929.
“Back then, Latinos were being brutalized and killed by police and lynched by the KKK,” she said. “‘No Mexicans Allowed’ signs hung outside of restaurants and storefronts. Latinos often couldn’t own property or serve on a jury. And if you walked into a public building, you’d often see not two water fountains, but three -- one white, one black, and one brown.”

With Immigration, Obama Lets a Crisis Go to Waste

Whatever happened to the Obama administration’s guiding principle never to let a serious crisis go to waste?

Ex-White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel pronounced this shockingly brazen political principle before a group of Wall Street executives in November 2008.
He said this even before President Obama took office. It was after that historic election, a time when the president was riding high on a wave of good will and political euphoria that few American politicians have ever enjoyed. It was also a time when the president’s party controlled both chambers of Congress and could have approved just about any agenda the White House could dream up.
Mr. Emanuel was, at the time, speaking about the financial crisis that was savaging the stock market, straining unemployment rolls and simultaneously spiking both foreclosed homes and homelessness across the country.
“Things that we had postponed for too long, that were long-term, are now immediate and must be dealt with,” Mr. Emanuel elaborated. “This crisis provides the opportunity for us to do things that you could not do before.”
Machiavellian? Sure. But, boy, did that crew talk a big game back then. It really sounded like they knew what they were talking about.
And he struck a bipartisan chord back then that sounds laughable today, knowing now how utterly hollow those words would turn out to be.
“The good news, I suppose, if you want to see a silver lining, is that the problems are big enough that they lend themselves to ideas from both parties for the solution,” Mr. Emanuel cooed.
You mean like, say, Obamacare? The single biggest, most strictly partisan government program ever created? These people have taken partisanship to its nastiest level in more than 80 years. Heck, Mr. Obama has turned partisanship against even his own party. When he doesn’t get his way, he goes around even fellow Democrats in Congress with his unconstitutional gambits.
So what did Mr. Emanuel’s “serious crisis” unwasted get us?
National debt exploded 70 percent to a staggering $17 trillion. Unemployment went from 6.8 percent up to 10 percent where it hovered for about a year and a half and is finally back down now to 6.1 percent. Today, a record 92 million Americans are no longer in the workforce, a rate of hopeless indolence not seen in the USA since Jimmy Carter was president.
Maybe America would have been better off if they had just decided to waste that serious crisis.
Now Mr. Obama faces another “serious crisis.” This one almost entirely of his own making.
Tens of thousands of children wandering the desert alone or shepherded by the modern equivalent of slave traders across the U.S.-Mexico border. Untold numbers have died, been raped and murdered.
All because Mr. Obama has promised to make them free Americans if they just touch our blessed borders — or at least that is the message the president conveys to these children and their families.
One little boy told a reporter through an interpreter: “He’s helping us. He signed papers and said all Guatemalans who come to the United States can stay. He’s helping us.”
Just look at the facts. Enforcement of immigration laws is a joke in the United States and everybody in South and Central America knows it. Then, Mr. Obama himself unilaterally granted amnesty to children in the U.S. illegally.
How does he now claim to be surprised by the humanitarian crisis of children flooding the border? What did he think would happen?
If ever there were a serious crisis not to let “go to waste,” it is this one now.
The president could finally get serious about enforcing immigration laws on businesses that hire illegals. He could begin real deportations. And he could send the starkest message yet by returning the children streaming across the border to their families back home.
Instead, the president keeps harping about “comprehensive immigration reform,” which is politicalese for refusing to enforce border laws until a widespread amnesty process is approved for all illegals. Of course, this is precisely why we have the humanitarian crisis on the border in the first place.
Mr. Obama plans to travel to Texas this week to attend political fundraisers. Astonishingly, the White House says that while is he collecting political campaign cash, he has no plans to visit the border.
Indeed, a serious crisis wasted by a president who apparently does not care.

Latino Activist: Border Crisis Will Be ‘Rosa Parks Moment’ for Illegal Aliens

As thousands of illegal immigrants have crossed the U.S. Southern Border and flooded into Texas and many are now being flown into California, one member of a Latino pro-immigration organization claims that "This issue with the children could be the Rosa Parks moment in the immigration debate.”

ABC10 reported that the first of several planes carrying illegal aliens from Central America, which was scheduled to land Tuesday at 10:00 a.m., will be transporting the passengers to Murrieta for screening and relocation. Enrique Morones, one of the leaders of Border Angels, a group sympathetic to illegal immigration, plans on spearheading efforts to bring blankets, food, and immigration services to California’s new inhabitants. "If they get sent back, they'll be killed, they'll die," he insists.
Just as Rosa Parks refusing to be moved to the back of the bus defined the beginning of the civil rights movement in America, Morones contends so will the children crossing the border be the defining moment for illegal immigration acceptance. He says, “All of a sudden the switch is going to go on, and we're going to go, 'Oh my god, what are we doing?'"
Morones implies that the reason illegal immigrants from Mexico and Central America are not wanted in certain communities is racism. "If these kids were Canadian kids, we wouldn't be having this discussion," he asserted.
According to ABC10, protester Diana Serafin is leading a charge of hundreds in Murrieta against the illegal aliens' coming to their suburban community. She and others oppose the relocation plan and see themselves as preventing crime and the spread of diseases like tuberculosis. "The Border Patrol sent me the sheet of everything they have to do to protect themselves from the diseases," the appalled Serafin explained. "Right here locally at Murrieta we were sent this."

Border crisis: Obama likely to delay deportations, experts agree


One of President Obama’s first moves toward trying to “fix” the U.S. immigration system without Congress will almost certainly be to expand on his 2012 executive order postponing deportation for potentially millions of young illegal immigrants, say experts on both sides of the debate.
Obama will likely sidestep Congress on immigration reform by expanding on his so-called Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals memorandum, which essentially allows young illegal immigrants to remain in the United States if they were brought into the country illegally by their parents and have not been convicted of a major crime, Federation for American Immigration Reform spokesman Ira Mehlman predicted.
“I expect him to continue to ignore U.S. immigration law,” Mehlman said. “This can all be traced back to the DACA program … under the guise of not splitting up families.”
Although many Republicans believe President Obama is overreaching on the issue by advancing his immigration agenda without the support of Congress, there is broad support among Latinos, labor groups and other Democrat constituencies for him to act unilaterally. 
The idea of extending delayed deportation to parents of young illegal immigrants also appears popular among Hispanic voters and will likely be recommended to the president by pro-immigration-reform groups with whom he has reportedly met in recent weeks.
A poll of registered Hispanic voters for the Center for American Progress Action Fund found strong support for renewing DACA as well as delaying deportation for the parents of young illegals protected under the program, people married to U.S. citizens and those living illegally in the United States for more than 10 years.
The respondents were “super excited” about such actions if they included the option of a work permit for illegals, said Gary Sugura of Latino Decisions, the opinion research group that conducted the poll. He also pointed out that Democratic candidates running in 2014 and beyond would benefit significantly from such changes.
The respondents were less supportive of so-called prosecutorial discretion, which essentially gives immigration officials say over which cases to pursue and prosecute.
As a sign of just how important the work permit issue is to pro-immigration advocates, particularly big business and organized labor, AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka and Janet Murguia, head of the National Council of La Raza, a Latino advocacy group, on Tuesday called on Obama to provide work permits to everyone who would have been eligible for citizenship under the bipartisan immigration bill passed last year by the Senate.
Obama has already taken the first step in directing Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson and Attorney General Eric Holder to shift resources from the U.S. interior to the Mexico border. And he has asked both for recommendations by the end of summer on the types of executive actions he could take.
“And I intend to adopt those recommendations without further delay,” Obama said in his Rose Garden remarks Monday.
In addition, the Center for American Progress, the liberal-leaning think tank influential in shaping Obama administration policy, released a 42-page study, which Marshall Fitz, the group’s director of immigration policy, calls “a roadmap for executive action on immigration.”
The study claims Obama has authority to use enforcement reforms and affirmative relief to implement his immigration agenda in spite of opposition in the House.
Reform involves prioritizing how and whether enforcement is conducted when someone comes into contact with the authorities. And the relief focuses on identifying illegal immigrants considered low priority for deportation, then creating a procedure for them to seek temporary protection from being removed from the country, according to the report.
Sugura and Center for American Progress officials acknowledge that Obama cannot stop all deportations, that any executive action is temporary and only Capitol Hill legislation can provide a permanent solution, which they say should include a path to legal status and eventual citizenship for the roughly 11.7 million illegal immigrants living in the country. 
Obama argues he has been compelled to act in large part because of the recent surge in unaccompanied Central American children showing up by the thousands at the U.S.-Mexico border and the GOP-controlled House’s unwillingness to vote on the issue until at least after the November elections.
"American cannot wait forever ... ," Obama said Monday. "That is why, today, I am beginning a new effort to fix as much of our immigration system as I can on my own, without Congress."
House Speaker John Boehner and other members of the House Republican Caucus argue the recent border problem is the result of executive actions that have enticed people to try to enter the U.S. illegally. And they plan to sue Obama over his use of such actions, serving notice that more moves by the president on immigration would only stiffen their opposition.
"If the president insists on enacting amnesty by executive order, he will undoubtedly face a lawsuit and will find himself, once again, on the wrong side of the Constitution and the law," said Texas GOP Rep. Lamar Smith.

Media Get Disappointing Look at TX and AZ Illegal Immigrant Detention Centers

breitbart

TUSCON, Arizona--Wednesday, June 18, marked the first day since over a thousand unaccompanied alien children (UACs) were shipped from south Texas to Nogales, Arizona ten days ago that reporters were allowed to see the inside of the Border Patrol holding facility, and the immigrants themselves. But this was not meant to be the dropping of the DHS veil that has opaquely covered the process by which these minors have been transferred, housed, processed, and subsequently released. Although reporters were impacted by finally seeing the UACs in confinement with their own eyes, they still left after a very short time feeling like they didn’t get the whole story.

Investigative reporter Michel Marizco from local Tucson news station KVOA tweeted a photo of about twenty journalists waiting to enter the Border Patrol holding facility. Then he tweeted, “But there’s a catch. Nobody from @DHSgov here is authorized to answer any questions. Meaning little context to what you’ll see today.” Just like elected officials before them, journalists were not allowed to bring in cell phones or electronic recording devices. Photojournalist Nick Oza tweeted, “Lots of media but no access; only pen and paper is allowed.”
Chris Sherman and Astrid Galván from the Associated Press were the first journalists to post a story about the visit. They described a clean but sad state of affairs inside: “Children’s faces pressed against glass. Hundreds of young boys and girls covered with aluminum foil-like blankets next to chain-link fences. The pungent odor that comes with keeping dirty travelers in close quarters.” They explained the minors were being kept inside a huge warehouse and segregated by age and gender with chain-link fences. They were being fed every six hours in groups of 200, and showering regularly with FEMA-provided facilities.
The moods of the UACs varied, according to journalists’ observations. Some were playing with a ball outside, others were sitting quietly, and some were crying. No one was allowed to speak to the detained minors. Sherman said via Twitter that officials wanted to make as little disruption as possible. His walkthrough at the Brownsville facility lasted little longer than ten minutes. Galván said her group of reporters in Nogales were strongly warned against speaking to anyone, and they were followed closely by Border Patrol agents. Her visit lasted less than half an hour. When asked if they learned anything really new, Galván just replied that there’s definitely “something to be said about seeing something first-hand instead of hearing about it from someone else.” Sherman said he got a “better sense of the efforts that have been made and why the law says they need to be sent to HHS in 72 hours.”
One journalist, however, was able to sneak in a few words with some teenagers out of sight of monitoring agents. Jon Justice from 104.1 KQTH in Tucson, AZ said via Twitter that many of the kids didn’t seem completely unhappy with being in the detention facility. When asked if it was because they were in a safe place and being fed better than they’re used to, he replied, “Actually its because they were headed to NY, New Jersey and Maine to meet family and knew they would be going soon, for free.” Justice added, “From the kids and what the agents were saying, most came for some type of ‘amnesty’ not because of conditions in Central [America].” 104.1 KQTH posted several photos—provided to them by one official photographer on site—on the station’s website.
Justice, the conservative radio talk show host of The Jon Justice Show, was deeply affected by the experience. “I immediately got a different perspective on the humanitarian part of it,” he said. “It doesn’t mean that I’ve changed my views as far as wanting to stop the flow of these individuals coming into the country, or enforcing our laws. But it certainly brought up some conflicts within me of, seeing the faces, looking at the children, and getting a better understanding of what we’re dealing with.”
But not everyone has been prohibited from making contact with the minors. Juanita Molina, director of the humanitarian organization Border Action Network (BAN), shared her visit to the Nogales facility with the Tucson Weekly. She explained that because her organization has such a close relationship with the Border Patrol’s Tucson Sector, she “was invited to tour the Nogales facility and participate in a discussion and evaluation process based on [their] shared values.” Molina also said, “As a humanitarian organization, BAN supports the ACLU in its action to bring light to the violations against unaccompanied minors in detention.”
While the Border Patrol and the Border Action Network may seem like strange bedfellows, Molina had generally kind words for the operation of the facility. She said that the agents were doing a good job of keeping the facility clean and the children fed and safe. But although their basic human needs are being met, she is concerned that agents are ill equipped to handle the emotional needs of the minors, especially since many of them have been traumatized.
But one has to ask why Molina was granted so much access—access that has been repeatedly denied to elected officials, reporters, and even church officials. Molina said her “tour and briefing lasted approximately 5 hours. [She] met with Tucson Sector Chief Manuel Padilla and the commanding officers in charge, and [she] had the opportunity to engage with all officers and ask questions at each station of the facility.” She was also “given access to the medical triage station, food preparation areas, and holding cells,” where she spoke to several children and frightened teen mothers.
Given that Molina’s organization supports the ACLU and shared her visit details with the left-leaning Tucson Weekly, one might expect a very critical picture of the situation in the Nogales holding facility, but quite the opposite was the case. The question remains if she was given completely unprecedented, extended, and exclusive access because the BAN has a “close relationship” with the Border Patrol and DHS knew they could expect a “good news” story; after all, Molina is not a journalist with certain duties and responsibilities to the craft, although one would expect her to have a critical eye. The fact remains Molina’s visit and the engaging narrative that goes with it still does nothing to truly increase the amount of transparency—or lack thereof—being displayed by DHS. Just ask any reporter who went on Wednesday’s half-hour tour.

Limbaugh: Use 'Elian Gonzalez Doctrine' on Children Illegals

Rush Limbaugh and one of his callers suggested that the Obama administration could resolve the crisis of children flooding over the southern border by reverting back to the “Elian Gonzalez doctrine.” Limbaugh pointed out that the Clinton administration “moved heaven and earth to return one kid to a Communist country” when Cuban refugee Elian Gonzalez was staying with his family in Florida, and “couldn’t wait to send this kid back.”

Back in 2000, armed Border Patrol agents stormed the house Gonzalez was staying in to take custody of the child and send him back to Cuba, while the current administration has promised to get lawyers for the children who have illegally entered the United States.

La fuga del cubano Viza en un contenedor de carga de Air France

Ricardo González Alfonso
jpquin.chez.com
LA HABANA, 14 de septiembre - La noticia nació en París, pero la historia comenzó en La Habana. Roberto Viza Egües viajó como polizón aéreo durante catorce horas en el contenedor de una nave de la Air France. La presión atmosférica, el frío intenso y la incertidumbre lo acompañaron aquel 13 de agosto del 2000. El jueves 31 Francia lo deportó golpeado y esposado. El 2 de septiembre cumplió 26 años en un calabozo de Villa Maristas, cuartel general de la Seguridad del Estado cubana. El 5 de ese mes salió en libertad. ¿En libertad?
Habíamos concertado la entrevista para las 10 de la mañana. Roberto llegó puntual. Tenía un taponcito de algodón en su oído derecho, secuela de la golpiza que le propinó la gendarmería gala. Ya en mi cuarto-estudio converso con Viza Egües.
La Fuga
- ¿Por qué intentó salir de Cuba de un modo tan arriesgado?
- Por mi situación. Pertenezco a un grupo defensor de los derechos humanos: el Movimiento 24 de Febrero. Participé en muchas actividades y me sentía presionado. Quería marcharme de la Isla, como lo hice... o en una balsa.
- ¿Aquella noche del 12 de agosto hubo alguna circunstancia que favoreciera que usted burlara la vigilancia policiaca del Aeropuerto José Martí?
- Sí. Gracias a Dios llovía mucho. Todo estaba tranquilo. No habían postas. (En el asiento Viza encorva el cuerpo, mira para ambos lados). Brinqué una cerca. Corrí hasta una mata. Me acerqué al avión. Traté de entrar en el primer contenedor que vi. No pude, pero sí en el segundo.
- ¿Qué hora era?
- Un poco más de las ocho de la noche. A eso de las 12 despegó el avión.
- Ya en pleno vuelo, ¿qué sintió en el depósito de equipajes?
- Imagínese, desesperación; no sabía qué me podía pasar. Todo estaba oscuro. Seguía empapado y hacía mucho frío. Más o menos a las tres horas comencé a sangrar por la nariz. Llegué a Francia lleno de sangre.
La esperanza
- ¿Quiénes y cómo lo descubrieron? ¿Cómo lo recibieron las autoridades francesas?
- Trasladaban el contenedor. Lo golpeé (Ahora Viza abre los ojos, tanto, como si atrapara otra vez aquella claridad, y prosigue). Dos almaceneros lo abrieron, me sacaron y cargaron, pues yo no podía caminar. Me brindaron un buen trato, se preocuparon por mí. Entonces llamaron a la policía. Los agentes fueron amables, me llevaron a un campamento de refugiados donde había indios y africanos, y después a un hospital.
- ¿Se interesó alguien por usted?
- Sí. Me llamaron por teléfono muchos cubanos que viven en Francia, como Lázaro Jordana, presidente de Cuba Democrática; Jorge Luis Arce, quien era periodista independiente en Cuba, y un francés, Laurent Muller, presidente de la Asociación Europea por una Cuba Libre, a quien estoy muy agradecido.
- ¿Cómo y cuánto tardaron las autoridades francesas para decidir su deportación?
- Me llevaron tres veces a corte. La última fue la de apelación. Se determinó que permaneciera en el campamento para refugiados hasta que me liberaran, pues mi caso sería atendido. Allí podía permanecer 20 días. El penúltimo la policía me sacó.
¡A Cuba no!
Roberto Viza comienza a sentirse tenso. Indago. ¿Qué ocurrió a partir de aquel momento?
- Los agentes me dijeron que tenía que ir al aeropuerto a firmar un documento. Me engañaron. Aseguraron que después yo estaría libre, que podía llamar entonces a las organizaciones de cubanos en Francia.
- ¿Y?
- En el aeropuerto me esperaban muchos policías. Una traductora me dijo que aquel papel que firmé era para regresar a Cuba. Me negué. Había salido ilegalmente de mi país y arriesgando mi vida. Expliqué que si regresaba iba a ser sancionado (Su mirada ahora suplica, como si yo pudiera rescatarlo de sus recuerdos. Se inquieta. Alza la voz). Entonces me esposaron de pies y manos. Me llevaron a un cuarto donde había cuatro individuos con guantes negros, los que me golpearon. Yo grité que me dieran asilo político, que volver a Cuba no.
A Cuba
- ¿Cómo fue el viaje de regreso?
- Esposado hasta América del Norte. Las aeromozas, el sobrecargo y muchas personas le dijeron a una mujer y a los agentes franceses que me escoltaban que me dieran agua, que me soltaran, que yo no era un terrorista. Algunos pasajeros lloraban al ver mi estado.
- ¿Qué ocurrió al llegar a Cuba?
- Me trasladaron en un auto a Villa Maristas. La policía francesa me había golpeado tanto, que me llevaron a un hospital militar. Allí me sacaron varios coágulos del oído. Después me condujeron a la sede de la Seguridad del Estado, y me encerraron en una celda.
- ¿Qué tiempo permaneció allí?
- Hasta pasadas las ocho de la noche del 5 de septiembre.
- ¿Sobre qué temas lo interrogaron?
- El instructor dijo que mi salida ilegal no le interesaba, sino las declaraciones que hice en Francia contra el gobierno cubano, y mis actividades en la disidencia.
- ¿Cómo lo ponen en libertad?
- Me sacaron del calabozo y me llevaron al lobby de villa Maristas. Había muchas personas, jefes políticos, coroneles. Me dijeron que yo era un hombre libre, que no tenía problemas. Estaba sorprendido, y me pregunté: ¿qué estará pasando?
¿Otra vez la esperanza?
- Y ahora, transcurrido unos días, ¿por qué piensa que las autoridades cubanas actuaron así?
- Cuando llegué a mi casa varias organizaciones defensoras de los derechos humanos de Francia y de Cuba me llamaron. Supe entonces que la prensa internacional había hecho mucha presión sobre mi caso, y que el gobierno francés le pidió al cubano que me liberaran.
- ¿Aún se considera usted un perseguido político?
- Por supuesto. Siempre me he considerado así.
- ¿Aunque la policía política lo haya soltado?
- Aunque me haya soltado. ¿Usted no los conoce? (Calla. Respeto su silencio. A un gesto de él continúo).
- ¿Deseas agregar algo?
- Sí. Pedir a todas las personas que me quieran ayudar que lo hagan. Temo por mi vida y por mi familia. Yo quiero ser un joven libre.
Releo mis notas, me detengo en el primer apellido de Roberto y se me ocurre un juego de palabras muy serio: ¿No habrá en el mundo una visa para Viza?

'Mexican American Studies' and Radical Required Reading

The Texas State Board of Education (SBOE) wrapped up their decision to maintain Mexican American studies on an elective status and not to elevate it into mandated coursework on April 11 despite a strong push from activists, who also worked overtime in creating a false perception that Texas was living in the Stone Age by not offering ethnic study classes at all.  Breitbart Texas reported on the situation; however, a lot of other headlines rallied behind this erroneous narrative.

Mexican American and other ethnic studies were already on the books. Texas Education Agency (TEA) spokeswoman Debbie Ratcliffe told Breitbart Texas that "the contributions of Hispanics are already included in existing social studies classes."
Ratcliffe also cited 4th and 7th grade Texas history classes where students are taught about Hector Garcia, Mexican American civil rights leader, and the contributions of Tejanos as far back as the 1500's.
It is not only elementary or middle school either where Mexican American heritage and culture is folded into the Texas Essential Knowledge & Skills (TEKS) aligned content standards. In Houston ISD, teacher Alejandro Torrealba brings AP Spanish Literature and Culture to life for high schoolers.  
He told Breitbart Texas "AP Spanish literature introduces students to the formal studies of a representative body of text from Spain, Latin American and U.S. Spanish literature. Our program includes masterpieces of Mexican American literatura: such as: Tomas Rivera, ‘Y no se lo trago la tierra..’ Sabine Ulibarri:  ‘El Caballo amigo’."
Ratcliffe also added, "Districts have long been able to teach a customized social studies class, such as Mexican American Studies, Civil War history, Medieval History, etc.,  by using the ‘Special Topics in Social Studies’ general curriculum standards, section 113.47." 
SBOE member and former teacher Tom Maynard (10th District) supported the TEA spokeswoman's comments. He told Breitbart Texas that Mexican American studies is an already welcome offering in Texas public education that can be taken in addition to the TEKS but do not replace Texas content curriculum. In fact, no elective ethnic course replaces TEKS required classes.
He said, "People need to understand that an elective does not supplant a student from taking American history, however. A student has to take Texas history too."
Certainly, students are required to study subjects in accordance with the TEKS. However, it seems that the real heart of the matter in the recent Mexican American Studies (MAS) debate may be more about future textbooks, online and instructional materials that would be used to teach a course. 
In fact, at the final vote, the SBOE agreed to a consider publisher requests for elective ethnic studies instructional materials. On the one hand, this was nothing new for Texas primary and secondary education. The SBOE broadened their language to allow book publishers to submit material for an even wider variety of heritage groups, such as German Americans or Czech Americans, or others, to add to those already included (i.e., Mexican American, Asian Americans, African American and Native Americans).
To ensure adherence to the TEKS, the SBOE and its review panel, the governing body that determines whether a publisher's offerings are TEKS acceptable, would rely on a variety of ways textbooks find their way into Texas classrooms, according to Ratcliffe. This includes going through a state adoption process or through a school district. According to Ratcliffe, the process is stringent and, although no system is 100 percent, Ratcliffe wanted to assure parents that safeguards tend to screen out undesirable or inappropriate content. 
Any book a district uses for an elective, not just MAS ethnic studies, is required to cover only at least 50 percent of the TEKS.  Although 50 percent does not filter out all unaligned content, the TEA spokeswoman said that combined with other monitoring safeguards, the likelihood of inappropriate, erroneous or biased materials would be significantly reduced.
It may need to. Houston-based author/activist Tony Diaz, who orchestrated the PR game to push the existing elective into a mandated TEA course, may have been pushing for something more like California's Assembly Bill (AB) 1750, which sits in the legislature right now and if passed, would mandate standardized ethnic studies courses grades 7-12.
Diaz is known as "El Librotraficante," which means "book trafficker," he told the Huffington Post. His recent underground Phoenix book drive was to raise copies of Occupied America, the bible of Chicano studies written by the father of Chicano studies, Rodolfo Acuňa, a professor at California State University Northridge (CSUN) in the Los Angeles suburbs.
In an April blog post, Diaz boasted that in 2012, the Librotraficante caravan smuggled banned books to Tucson. Back in 2010, Arizona not only shut down the core MAS program offered in the Tucson Unified School District, it outlawed it through House Bill 2281. Lawmakers shut the classes down because of the divisive nature of the curriculum. 
The Arizona legislation stated that the "legislature finds and declares that public school pupils should be taught to treat and value each other as individuals and not be taught to resent or hate other races or classes of people." 
The high school teacher responsible for that course was Curtis Acosta, who, according to the Diaz blog, was in Texas recently. Diaz wrote "Now, one of founders of the brilliant and BANNED Mexican American Studies Program comes to Houston."
In 2013, Acosta resigned from the Tucson Unified School District, creating Chicana/o Literature, Art, and Social Studies (CLASS), a high school dual credit course offered through a partnership with Prescott College in Tucson.  He also launched the Acosta Latino Learning Partnership, a consulting firm that incorporates what the website dubbed his brand of "socially and community relevant" MAS and CLASS curriculum to "meet and exceed the Common Core...", the federal educational mandate.
Arizona's law was crafted in response to Acosta's curriculum. Today, all Arizona school districts and charters, which are public schools, cannot include any courses or classes that promote the overthrow of the United States government."
What was going on in Tucson?
According to the suburban Los Angeles community weekly, the San Fernando Valley Sun, "one of the confiscated books used in Tucson Unified's MAS class was "one of the cornerstones of Chicano Studies -- Acuña's book.
"Occupied America," was strongly condemned for its separatist values. It also included a racist speech attributed to University of Texas  professor José Angel Gutiérrez, who said: “We have got to eliminate the gringo, and what I mean by that is if the worst comes to the worst, we have got to kill him...” (pg. 323). 
Additionally, Gutiérrez's resume names him as a founding member and past president of La Raza Unida ("The Race United") Party, which Breitbart News reported in 2012, had another co-founder in San Antonio mayor Julian Castro's mother. She helped create the "radical, anti-white, socialist Chicano party that called for creating a separate country - Aztlan - in the Southwest United States." 
A 2011 Examiner article also cited Acuňa's book for the same radical recommendation that Mexico retake seven Southwestern U.S. states to become a Chicano nation. La Raza is an extremist group that promotes this notion, according to recent Breitbart News reports.
In essence, the MAS saga may not have just been a flickering moment in front of the SBOE over a class. It may well prove to be a complex battleground of border state activists determined to dictate classroom text/online required reading lists and supplemental materials that are used in Texas public and charter school classrooms for all TEA Mexican American elective studies.

Britain's Immigration Crisis: How the BBC Pretended It Wanted a 'Debate'

Reuters

“We are full, and I think parents who are coming into the city now need to appreciate that they can’t sort of pick and choose anymore. The schools in the city are full to bursting.”

So remarked Anne Steele-Arnett, a British primary school head teacher who spoke to Nick Robinson during the recent BBC documentary entitled The Truth About Immigration.
Despite her assertion, and the evidence to hand, the BBC’s conclusions following its one-hour documentary were clear. Immigration is good, Britons are bigoted, and conservatives are nasty people.
Who would have expected anything different from an institution that has effectively been bounced by public opinion into making a program about an issue that the liberal-left thought was long since settled?
Immigration, for many years, was a staple issue for the left—and, indeed, for many libertarians. If you opposed open immigration, you were either a racist or a reactionary. To this day, I’m unsure which is worse by their logic.
BBC executives cannot have been pleased to make this program, which, intelligently, publicly billed itself as the corporation looking inward and realising that it had not had an “honest debate about immigration” for many years. Despite this effective spin of its own shortcomings, the program swiftly moved to implicate conservatives like Enoch Powell and Margaret Thatcher.
Powell, with his often intentionally mistitled “Rivers of Blood” speech, is charged with making immigration a taboo topic. The Labour Party’s Trevor Phillips, who is also the former head of the spuriously named "Equality and Human Rights Commission," tells us that Powell’s couching of the immigration debate “purely in racial terms” made it “very difficult to get a proper discussion about immigration for nearly half a century.”
So there you have it. One speech, given at a local party meeting by one conservative Member of Parliament 46 years ago, is held up as the rationale for the entire establishment’s cowardice for half a century.
However, not even the selective quotes from both him and from former Prime Minister Thatcher could back up the BBC’s biased conclusions. So it confronted the British public, who overwhelmingly guessed in one of the least entertaining and least scientific polls taken (using slices of pie at a country fair) that immigration was far greater than it actually was. Is this the “serious debate” that we were promised?
“Surely we’re all a nation of bigots, and we need to do some serious soul-searching?” is the question we are no doubt supposed to be asking ourselves. However, if the BBC had bothered to scratch a little deeper, it would have gotten to the bottom of why people feel that immigration is higher than it is, rather than conflating the issue with "scaremongerers" such as former Conservative Party leader Michael Howard and current UK Independence Party leader Nigel Farage.
The reason, of course, is that Britons are simply reflecting what institutions like the BBC are foisting upon us. Multiculturalism has featured so heavily across the broadcaster’s scheduling over the past few decades, and the idea that "everything (or nothing) is British" has been rammed down our throats by government and its appendages for so long that it is no wonder that Britons' minds exaggerate the problem.
No, immigrants do not make up one third or even one quarter of the population of Britain. They do, however, make up one eighth, and for the BBC to present this as both a vindication of mass immigration and a number not to be concerned about is thoroughly disingenuous – almost as much as their proposition that this documentary was a result of self reflection.
For years, greater thinkers than you will ever find within the BBC have been warning about an immigration crisis. It has scarcely been about "people coming over and stealing our jobs" – a simple strawman argument perpetuated by the left. Rather, it has often been about the stresses upon the national infrastructure and indeed upon a national identity.
A recent report by Ed West and the New Culture Forum exposed the BBC’s bias on the matter. It even went so far as to reveal that it is "common practice" for the BBC to give a platform to many pro-immigration spokesmen with no dissenting voices. It was noted that the corporation suffers from left-wing "groupthink," preventing its journalists from challenging institutional bias.
So did this half-hearted, pseudo-apology, "debate" documentary resolve any of the issues to which the BBC is supposedly now attuned? 
No.
We are left with an overwhelming feeling that, somehow, right-wing politicians created tensions by forewarning about the problems of mass immigration – problems that have indeed come to pass, but which few will point out because of the very real fear of being labeled a racist, bigot, or otherwise.
I, as someone born to immigrants from Tanzania whose parents came from India, still find myself at the receiving end of such insults. Gillian Duffy, a life-long Labour party supporter, was famously called a “bigoted woman” by the former Prime Minister, Gordon Brown, for daring to remark, “You can't say anything about immigrants.” She was swiftly proved correct.
However, the BBC could not mask the very real admission of guilt by the former Foreign Secretary Jack Straw, who revealed that he deeply “regretted” the Labour government’s moves to open Britain’s borders to masses of Eastern European economic migrants – despite almost every other major European country's placing restrictions upon them.
Straw, throughout the documentary, made the point that his government got it all horrifically wrong:
The Home Office researchers concluded that there was likely to be net migration of around 13,000 people a year, looking forward over the following ten years. The predictions were completely catastrophic. I mean they were wrong by a factor of ten.
He stopped short of issuing a formal apology, stating, “Personally I am skeptical about apologies, other than personal apologies… It is right to say we got it wrong, and we deeply regret it.”
And yet, all things considered, the viewer was undoubtedly supposed to switch off his television set after watching this tripe and realize, “Oh, my taxes could rise if immigration levels drop.” The last ten minutes were dedicated to insisting that Britain desperately needs more economic migrants.
The blow to the BBC and to those seeking to end the documentary with this stark warning is that not only is this assumption spurious at best, but the people it presented this information to, including Asian immigrants, and indeed Nigel Farage, said, “So be it…”
“There are some things in a society, in a community,” said Farage, “that actually matter more than just money. Quality of life, overcrowded Britain, lack of social housing, youth unemployment. These are very real issues.”
For the BBC and the leftist intelligentsia, these are wounding words.
No longer can social democrats and Europhiles stake an unchallenged claim to the welfare of the poorest and the cohesion of civil society. The liberal left’s staple issue has been torn away from it. I suppose I can hazard a guess at their response before it even arrives.
We’re all racists and bigots now.

Sergio García, America's First Illegal Immigrant Lawyer, May Run for Governor

Sergio Garcia/ storify.com

The first attorney in history to receive admission to a state bar association despite being in America illegally says practicing law isn't the limit for him; he might run for governor of California.


Sergio García, who was brought into the country illegally at 17 months and has been waiting 19 years for a legal permit, stayed in America, and graduated from Cal Northern School of Law in 2009, told EFE that he could see himself "launching a political campaign." 

"Insofar as it's legally possible for me, I'm thinking of launching a political campaign with the aim of eventually, perhaps many years from now, running for governor," he said.

He noted that he is still very much interested in practicing law, but that being undocumented in the United States poses barriers even for an admitted member of the California bar. While the California bar wanted to accept him, his case reached the California Supreme Court when the Justice Department objected to his admission on account of his legal status. And many things remain out of reach for Garcia. 

It is illegal, for example, for any firm to hire him and for him to receive payment from clients. "I can't take a job from a person who's here legally, but there's absolutely no law that says that I can't create my own job and open my own company," he noted, which means that, as a lawyer, he may have to hang up his own shingle. And Garcia added that this is where the idea of running for public office came: there are no specific rules for some low-level offices mentioning legal status in the United States, and "many years from now," it is possible Garcia's status in the country will be stabilized.

California became the first state to allow an illegal immigrant to practice law this month when the California Supreme Court ruled that Garcia, who graduated law school and passed the state bar, should be allowed membership. The California legislature had previously attempted to pass a bill that would allow illegal immigrants to work in the legal industry, but the state courts preempted it. Governor Jerry Brown signed a law shortly after the court decision cementing the practice, however. The Court's Chief Justice, Tani Catil-Sakauye, stated in the court decision that "the admission of an undocumented immigrant who has met all the qualifications for admission to the State Bar is fully consistent with this state's public policy."

Steven Seagal May Run for Arizona Governor to Secure Border

Steven Seagal is a 61-year-old actor and member of Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio's civilian "posse" who says he is ready to run for Arizona governor on a platform of increasing border security.

Seagal has been deputized "with sheriff's offices in New Mexico, Texas, and Louisiana."  
According to CBS Las Vegas, the actor spent a lot of time with Arpaio while filming "Steven Seagal--Lawman: Maricopa County," and emerged from that thinking about the need to secure the border. He says he discussed his thoughts on a gubernatorial bid with Arpaio but did not provide details of that discussion.
If Seagal does run for statewide office, he has a long history of seeming exaggeration and odd behavior he will have to explain to voters. Vice has a list of Seagal's more outrageous statements which may escaped the attention of many TV viewers and Arizona voters. These include his claim to have "trained CIA operatives," to speak "four languages fluently," and being "clairvoyant... a healer."

"EN TIEMPOS DIFÍCILES" - Heberto Padilla

A aquel hombre le pidieron su tiempo

para que lo juntara al tiempo de la Historia.

Le pidieron las manos,

porque para una época difícil

nada hay mejor que un par de buenas manos.

Le pidieron los ojos

que alguna vez tuvieron lágrimas

para que contemplara el lado claro

(especialmente el lado claro de la vida)

porque para el horror basta un ojo de asombro.

Le pidieron sus labios

resecos y cuarteados para afirmar,

para erigir, con cada afirmación, un sueño

(el-alto-sueño);

le pidieron las piernas

duras y nudosas

(sus viejas piernas andariegas),

porque en tiempos difíciles

¿algo hay mejor que un par de piernas

para la construcción o la trinchera?

Le pidieron el bosque que lo nutrió de niño,

con su árbol obediente.

Le pidieron el pecho, el corazón, los hombros.

Le dijeron

que eso era estrictamente necesario.

Le explicaron después

que toda esta donación resultaria inútil.

sin entregar la lengua,

porque en tiempos difíciles

nada es tan útil para atajar el odio o la mentira.

Y finalmente le rogaron

que, por favor, echase a andar,

porque en tiempos difíciles

esta es, sin duda, la prueba decisiva.

Carta desde la carcel de Fidel Castro Ruz

“…después de todo, para mí la cárcel es un buen descanso, que sólo tiene de malo el que es obligatorio. Leo mucho y estudio mucho. Parece increíble, las horas pasan como si fuesen minutos y yo, que soy de temperamento intranquilo, me paso el día leyendo, apenas sin moverme para nada. La correspondencia llega normalmente…”

“…Como soy cocinero, de vez en cuando me entretengo preparando algún pisto. Hace poco me mandó mi hermana desde Oriente un pequeño jamón y preparé un bisté con jalea de guayaba. También preparo spaghettis de vez en cuando, de distintas formas, inventadas todas por mí; o bien tortilla de queso. ¡Ah! ¡Qué bien me quedan! por supuesto, que el repertorio no se queda ahí. Cuelo también café que me queda muy sabroso”.
“…En cuanto a fumar, en estos días pasados he estado rico: una caja de tabacos H. Upman del doctor Miró Cardona, dos cajas muy buenas de mi hermano Ramón….”.
“Me voy a cenar: spaghettis con calamares, bombones italianos de postre, café acabadito de colar y después un H. Upman #4. ¿No me envidias?”.
“…Me cuidan, me cuidan un poquito entre todos. No le hacen caso a uno, siempre estoy peleando para que no me manden nada. Cuando cojo el sol por la mañana en shorts y siento el aire de mar, me parece que estoy en una playa… ¡Me van a hacer creer que estoy de vacaciones! ¿Qué diría Carlos Marx de semejantes revolucionarios?”.

Liborio

Liborio
A la puerta de la gloria está San Pedro sentado y ve llegar a su lado a un hombre de cierta historia. No consigue hacer memoria y le pregunta con celo: ¿Quién eras allá en el suelo? Era Liborio mi nombre. Has sufrido mucho, hombre, entra, te has ganado el cielo.

Para Raul Castro

Cuba ocupa el penultimo lugar en el mundo en libertad economica solo superada por Corea del Norte.

Cuba ocupa el lugar 147 entre 153 paises evaluados en "Democracia, Mercado y Transparencia 2007"

Cuando vinieron

Cuando vinieron a buscar a los comunistas, Callé: yo no soy comunista.
Cuando vinieron a buscar a los sindicalistas, Callé: yo no soy sindicalista.
Cuando vinieron a buscar a los judíos, Callé: yo no soy judío. Cuando vinieron a buscar a los católicos, Callé: yo no soy “tan católico”.
Cuando vinieron a buscarme a mí, Callé: no había quien me escuchara.

Reverendo Martin Niemöller

Un sitio donde los hechos y sus huellas nos conmueven o cautivan

CUBA LLORA Y EL MUNDO Y NOSOTROS NO ESCUCHAMOS

Donde esta el Mundo, donde los Democratas, donde los Liberales? El pueblo de Cuba llora y nadie escucha.
Donde estan los Green, los Socialdemocratas, los Ricos y los Pobres, los Con Voz y Sin Voz? Cuba llora y nadie escucha.
Donde estan el Jet Set, los Reyes y Principes, Patricios y Plebeyos? Cuba desesperada clama por solidaridad.
Donde Bob Dylan, donde Martin Luther King, donde Hollywood y sus estrellas? Donde la Middle Class democrata y conservadora, o acaso tambien liberal a ratos? Y Gandhi? Y el Dios de Todos?
Donde los Santos y Virgenes; los Dioses de Cristianos, Protestantes, Musulmanes, Budistas, Testigos de Jehova y Adventistas del Septimo Dia. Donde estan Ochun y todas las deidades del Panteon Yoruba que no acuden a nuestro llanto? Donde Juan Pablo II que no exige mas que Cuba se abra al Mundo y que el Mundo se abra a Cuba?
Que hacen ahora mismo Alberto de Monaco y el Principe Felipe que no los escuchamos? Donde Madonna, donde Angelina Jolie y sus adoptados around de world; o nos hara falta un Brando erguido en un Oscar por Cuba? Donde Sean Penn?
Donde esta la Aristocracia Obrera y los Obreros menos Aristocraticos, donde los Working Class que no estan junto a un pueblo que lanquidece, sufre y llora por la ignominia?
Que hacen ahora mismo Zapatero y Rajoy que no los escuchamos, y Harper y Dion, e Hillary y Obama; donde McCain que no los escuchamos? Y los muertos? Y los que estan muriendo? Y los que van a morir? Y los que se lanzan desesperados al mar?
Donde estan el minero cantabrico o el pescador de percebes gijonese? Los Canarios donde estan? A los africanos no los oimos, y a los australianos con su acento de hombres duros tampoco. Y aquellos chinos milenarios de Canton que fundaron raices eternas en la Isla? Y que de la Queen Elizabeth y los Lords y Gentlemen? Que hace ahora mismo el combativo Principe Harry que no lo escuchamos?
Donde los Rockefellers? Donde los Duponts? Donde Kate Moss? Donde el Presidente de la ONU? Y Solana donde esta? Y los Generales y Doctores? Y los Lam y los Fabelo, y los Sivio y los Fito Paez?
Y que de Canseco y Miñoso? Y de los veteranos de Bahia de Cochinos y de los balseros y de los recien llegados? Y Carlos Otero y Susana Perez? Y el Bola, y Pancho Cespedes? Y YO y TU?
Y todos nosotros que estamos aqui y alla rumiando frustaciones y resquemores, envidias y sinsabores; autoelogios y nostalgias, en tanto Louis Michel comulga con Perez Roque mientras Biscet y una NACION lanquidecen?
Donde Maceo, donde Marti; donde aquel Villena con su carga para matar bribones?
Cuba llora y clama y el Mundo NO ESCUCHA!!!
