Realizing the DREAM to Drive in Nebraska
By S.A. Mora James, President
Nebraska Hispanic Bar Association

Unfortunately, there are still some areas of inequality in our great state. The one inequality that screams for justice is the current denial of drivers’ license for children who are brought to this country as babies and who were raised and educated as U.S. Americans. Many of these same children, who are now young adults, are waiting for the privilege to serve in our Armed Forces and fight for their chosen country. Their patriotism amazes me considering how they are treated as ‘shadow people’ here in Nebraska.

These same children are also known as “DREAMERS.” DREAMER is an acronym for Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors, which was an American legislative proposal, first introduced into the U.S. Senate on August 1, 2001, S.1291 by Dick Durbin and Orrin Hatch and is currently being reviewed by eight U.S. Senators. Optimistically, the DREAMERS’ ‘Inequality before the Law’ issues will be addressed in the federal legislation that eight of our U. S. Senators from both parties, (AKA “The Group of 8”), are developing in their Comprehensive Immigration Reform efforts.

The truth is that DREAMERS/DACA Recipients have legal presence and deferred status based on humanitarian reasons when they receive their work permits and social security numbers. Unfortunately, DREAMERS/DACA Recipients are currently being denied driver’s license unjustly in this State whose motto is ironically, “Equality before the Law.” State leaders who are anti-DREAMERS, apparently are not familiar or do not realize that the DACA is based on humanitarian reasons. Other humanitarian-based programs like DACA are the Violence against Women’s Act, T-Visas, U-Visas and Temporary Protective Status, which are also considered to be in deferred status and have legal presence, and are allowed to obtain drivers’ licenses in Nebraska.

Regrettably, in America today, only Nebraska and Arizona are currently denying drivers’ licenses to DREAMERS/DACA Recipients who have legal presence and deferred status. I sincerely ask you where is the ‘Equality Before the Law’ for these children and young adults in this State called the “Good Life”.

Chicana / Latina Leader Discusses Affirmative Action in California Schools

POSTED ON
April 10

According to USA TODAY:  "The idea of using race to help determine who gets a seat in public colleges has been under fire for decades. Eight states have essentially banned the practice, and a Michigan case pending before the U.S. Supreme Court could prompt others to do the same.  College officials nationwide got a wake-up call last June from the high court, which set a high bar for using race as part of a complex admissions program in Texas. Many observers say the combined weight of the two cases could finally push state universities to find another way to promote diversity." 

"All the trends are pointing against the continued use of race in admissions," says Richard Kahlenberg of the Washington

Co-founder of Somos Independents via Shirl Mora James has a significant amount of experience with regard to Civil Rights and Immigration Law.   Shirl writes: 

Affirmative Action is a threat to the status quo, in the words of one of my law school classmates (white male), "I am afraid of affirmative action and having the same start-line with you because I'm afraid that you will easily beat to the finish line because you are stronger than me and I know that because you here competing against me and winning, so why would I support an equal playing field?" I replied, what about your daughters, do they deserve an equal playing field? He surprisingly replied, that they too, did not deserve a fair playing field. 

Today with the destruction of affirmative action, there is more white students in the top schools that ever before and the blacks and Hispanics are too more educated but by public institutions that are lower ranked. 

The deconstruction of affirmative action is a methodical plan by the white supremacists males by the use of the white political and white judiciary institutions to litigate and legislate affirmative action into nonexistence, they don't want an equal playing field because they are afraid to stand on their own two feet within their own white institutions without their white privilege to aid them along the way. Thus, their fear-based reasoning is to deny an equal playing field to all because of their own feelings of inferiority. If they didn't feel inferior, why would they want an additional edge against us?

The same people that don't want immigrants here are the same people that are deconstructing affirmative action state by state methodically.

Key Swing Independent Chicano & Latino Voters Remember 3 Times GOP voted Against DREAMers / Immigrants

Hispanic / Latino Voters Will remember 3 times when #GOP members act against #Dreamers:

"Senate Republicans Block DREAM Act for Illegal Immigrants"

by Devin Dwyer and Matthew Jaffe 

“Senate Republicans today blocked a controversial immigration measure that would have provided a conditional path to legal residency for hundreds of thousands of young, undocumented immigrants first brought to the U.S. illegally by their parents.

By a vote of 55 to 41, the bill -- the Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors, or DREAM Act -- failed to win the 60 votes needed to break a GOP filibuster, even though the measure passed the House last week.”

“Steve King Amendment Passes House To Deport More Dreamers”

by Elise Foley

“The House voted 224-201 on Thursday to end Department of Homeland Security discretion policies that allow it to delay deportations for young, undocumented immigrants and other people deemed low-priority, effectively demanding the government force out Dreamers who came to the United States as children. 

The amendment, offered by immigration hawk Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa), was approved mostly along party lines. However, three Democrats -- Reps. John Barrow (D-Ga.), Nick Rahall (D-W.V.) and Mike McIntyre (D-N.C.) -- supported the amendment. Six Republicans -- Reps. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-Fla.), Spencer Bachus (R-Ala.), David Nunes (R-Calif.), Michael Grimm (R-N.Y.), Jeff Denham (R-Calif.), David Valadao (R-Calif.) -- opposed it, while nine members did not vote.”

“House GOP Passes Immigration-Related Bill That Goes After Dreamers”

by Elise Foley

"House Republicans addressed immigration on Wednesday -- sort of -- by passing a bill that would take aim at President Barack Obama's policy that allows young undocumented immigrants to stay in the United States. 

The ENFORCE Act, which passed 233 to 181, isn't about immigration exclusively. Instead, it goes after Obama for alleged overreach on a variety of issues, including Obamacare, education and drug laws. The bill would allow Congress to sue the executive branch for allegedly failing to enforce the law, and it could lead to the dismantling of a key policy protecting some undocumented immigrants.

The move was a far cry from the votes on immigration reform that Democrats want, and stood in stark contrast to the immigration principles put forward by House Republican leadership in January. While those guidelines called for young undocumented immigrants who came to the United States as children -- often referred to as Dreamers -- to receive eventual citizenship, the bill approved Wednesday could end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals policy that keeps the same people from being deported."

LINDA VALDEZ / Arizona Republic: Obama can checkmate GOP on immigration

POSTED ON
March 28

By Linda Valdez:

 

House Dems' discharge petition shows strategic advantage

The House Democrats' effort to force a vote on immigration reform is being dismissed as pure politics. OK. The discharge petition failed to get the needed 218 signatures to force a floor vote on the Senate's immigration bill. That was no surprise.

If the goal was to highlight the GOP's challenges with Latino voters, though, it was a success.

But we didn't need a failed discharge petition to demonstrate the intransigence of House Republicans or the colossal failure of GOP House Speaker John Boehner to move ahead on reform.

This is an issue of huge national importance, but the GOP has let the far right control the game and block progress.

Democrats shouldn't let up on this message.

Despite the slim hope of actually achieving reform, Democrats should continue to play this for political gain. (They need all the help they can get in November.)

Next move: President Obama can suspend deportations of those who would qualify for legal status under the Senate's bipartisan immigration reform bill. He should do it in the name of fairness and traditional family values.

Obama can legitimately claim the moral high ground. Families are being torn apart by the current policies, as demonstrators have been telling us in heartbreaking stories.

Obama also will be energizing the base by playing the kind of daring political chess Democrats expected from him years ago.

Just in: President Obama on Immigration Discharge Petition #DemandAVote

POSTED ON

Independent Chicano / Latino voters support legal immigration reform!

THE WHITE HOUSE

Office of the Press Secretary

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

March 26, 2014

Statement by the President on Immigration Reform

Last year, Democrats and Republicans in the Senate came together to pass a commonsense bill to fix our broken immigration system – a bill that would grow our economy, shrink our deficits, and reward businesses and workers that play by the rules. But so far, Republicans in the House have refused to allow meaningful immigration reform legislation to even come up for a vote. 

That’s why, today, I applaud the efforts of Democrats in the House to give immigration reform the yes-or-no vote it deserves. Like the Senate bill, the House bill would strengthen our borders, modernize our legal immigration system, and keep more families together. It would make sure everyone plays by the same rules by providing a pathway to earned citizenship for those who are living in the shadows. And according to the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office, it would grow our economy and reduce our deficits by $900 billion over the next 20 years. 

Immigration reform is the right thing to do for our economy, our security, and our future. A vast majority of the American people agree. The only thing standing in the way is the unwillingness of Republicans in Congress to catch up with the rest of the country. And I want to thank the leaders in Congress who are doing their part to move us forward.

House Dems Will Try to Force Immigration Vote - NBC News

House Dems Will Try to Force Immigration Vote

BY FRANK THORP V

House Democrats will file another 'discharge petition' Wednesday in an effort to force a vote on a bill to overhaul the nation's immigration system.

The move, which would need to obtain 218 signatures, is not expected to succeed (There are currently 199 Democrats in the House). House Democrats will unveil the petition at a Wednesday morning press event on the steps of the Capitol.

House Democrats have filed seven discharge petitions in the 113th Congress, all of which failed to obtain the signatures needed to force a vote on legislation. In the last 30 years, only seven discharge petitions have obtained enough signatures to force a vote.

Earlier this year, Democrats used the tactic to try to bring an extension of unemployment benefits and an increase in the federal minimum wage to the House floor. While those attempts failed, the process itself has been used as a messaging tool to highlight Republican's unwillingness to bring up bills.

In the case of Wednesday's discharge petition, Democrats are attempting to force a vote on HR 15 -- effectively the Senate-passed immigration bill with changes to the language concerning border security. That bill has three Republican co-sponsors: California Reps. David Valadao and Jeff Denham and Florida’s Ileana Ros-Lehtinen.

But in the past, Republicans have not bucked their leadership and joined with Democrats to force a vote.

Julio Varela of Latino Rebels Has Pattern of Attacking Women Exploiting Mexican / Latinos

POSTED ON
March 24

Somos Independents is led by Chicana / Mexican-American women voters.  We take issue with men who attack women and/or are in the business of exploiting Mexican-Americans / Latinos. In addition to Latino Rebels exploiting Mexicans, he has a pattern of bullying women.  Indeed he recently bullied an undocumented immigration reform activist, but women in the immigration reform movement will not tolerate his bullying of women.  

Aztlan Reads states: 

...on the historic 45th Anniversary of the Tlaltelolco Massacre, we received a comment to one of our posts on Aztlán Reads: “Setting the Record Straight: How Julio Varela of Latino Rebels Uses Marketing Gimmicks to Exploit the Mexican Community” from none other than Julio Varela of Latino Rebels fame.

In condescending colonial language he stated the following:

“Quien quiere mentir, engaña y el que quiere engañar, miente.” Mateo Alemán

Gracias por compartir mentiras y por su deseo de engañar. Los que quieren engañar con intentos de destrozar seguirán siendo mediocres. Le invito a seguir siendo mediocres. La verdad es que no importa. Pueden seguir el intento de engañar porque revela su carácter como unos falsos. Que vivan los falsos. El odio, basado en mentiras, nunca gana.

Not once did, Julio Varela refute any of the claims made by the Think Mexican blog. As usual, Julio Varela resorted to his old tactics when confronted about his business agenda and sidesteps what is obvious: Julio is a businessman with a strong acumen for marketing who is merely seeking to build his personal coffers by tapping into what supposedly is a $1 trillion market in the so-called “Latino” community of which Mexicans are the largest of the group.  His business model is based on exploiting the Mexican culture.

... 

Julio Varela, Latino Rebels, LATISM and other Hispanic/Latino social media sites are a marketing ploy created by several Euroamerican and Hispanic Entrepreneurs, such as William Shepherd and Jack Yan of the Multicultural Branding Consultancy (MBC) and Charlie García, a marketer and businessman who brings to the Latino Rebels a political ideology “formed at the U.S. Air Force Academy in the mid-West” and “in the jungles of Central America teaching counter guerilla warfare to militaries trying to shake off communist insurgencies in the 1980s.”

....

More to the point, Julio Varela uses his influence to distort the history of Xicanas/os-Mexicanas/os, co-opts ideas and stories from others then use them as his own all while pacifying Raza in the social media by promoting assimilation and integration.

....

 

Chicanas take issue with Latino Rebels for giving marketing help to hijackers of the immigration reform movement like  Mohammad Abdollahi / Prerna Lal (founders of DREAMACT.org) who are on the record for stating they want to kill immigration reform.  Both co-founders will not retract Mohammad's "kill CIR" statement.  We also take issue with Latino Rebels contributing to the mocking of "FAST FOR FAMILIES."  Those who are fasting and praying take immigration very seriously because families are being torn away.  This is no laughing matter.  

Need more proof on Julio's marketing agenda?

Carlos Galindo: Koch Funded Operative Appears on Telemundo's Enfoque with Jose Diaz-Balart

Koch Funded Operative Appears on Telemundo's Enfoque with Jose Diaz-Balart

By Carlos Galindo

I was not so much shocked when I saw one of Jose Diaz Balart's guests this Sunday morning, but actually saddened for the Latino community in knowing that there was no way I was going to be able to counter the misinformation being shoved down the Spanish Language speaker's throat on Balart's Sunday morning news show called Enfoque, which airs on Telemundo at 11:00 EST. I have slowly watched Telemundo's star anchor dig further and further into the cesspool of Spanish speaking Republican operatives. 

I've watched his interviews with old warhorses like John McCain (R-AZ) in which he allows them to carry on with their neocon monologue. On the Immigration topic I've watched him bring some of Speaker Boehner's lap dogs to the show, like Raul Labrador (R-IA), an Immigration Attorney by profession, conveniently turned Republican politician. He also brought his own brother, Mario Diaz Balart (R-FL) whom he did not personally interview, but who was given the red carpet welcome by an alternate anchor on his show and was tendered an open mic and camera to misinform the Spanish speaking community on the GOP's "true desire" to help Immigrants. Diaz Balart's brother further expressed his absolute frustration at this President's refusal to act on stopping deportations and the separation of families. Ironically it's Diaz Balart's brother who forms part of the U.S. House of Representatives who has insisted on blocking Immigration Reform and who has tendered as an only solution, piecemeal legislation that would address stepped up enforcement of existing Immigration laws while increasing border security with the creation of a border commission that would give the green light on whether or not the border is sufficiently secure to allow Immigrants to fully come out of the shadows. Unfortunately that commission would be comprised of Republican border governors who receive Federal subsidies and who would never agree that the border is in fact secure.

Diaz Balart's facilitation of misinformation is damaging to the Spanish language speaking community. They have very few other sources of information and none are promoted and marketed as heavily and prominently as Telemundo and Univision are within the Spanish language communities. That fact alone should be a great burden for these media monsters. They have an absolute duty to fully disclose and to allow a counter argument to topics presented by these Spanish language news outlets. This is primarily absent on the news casts and on their Sunday News Shows.

As if this wasn't enough, now Telemundo's Jose Diaz-Balart brings a Koch funded Republican operative to bash The Afforable Care Act and to join in with National Council of La Raza's Clarissa Martinez in bashing the current administration and in particular President Obama on Immigration. Martinez and the Koch Brothers funded Republican operative Dan Garza from The Libre Initiative continued the perpetuation of lies and allegations that this President has deported nearly two million undocumented Immigrants without a criminal record. The actual facts as reported by the Pew Hispanic Research Center based on ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) statistics, show the majority of those deported had criminal records or formed part of a great percentage that were caught at the border and had not established any roots in the United States. What was even sadder is watching the spokesperson for National Council of La Raza Clarissa Martinez sharing the stage with, agreeing with, and quoting a Koch Brothers operative, without even realizing she was sharing the stage with an Obama hater and someone who forms part of a movement that would just as soon have her working the fields barefooted than allow her to live the American Dream as a Latina as she has successfully done.

Jose Diaz Balart's latest move introduces a dangerous precedent with a dangerous factor, a Spanish speaking snake oil salesman heavily funded by the Koch network to promote anti-Obama care sentiment and to recruit Spanish speakers in droves to the Republican party.

Warning to the Spanish Language Community! You have now been targeted by big money!

As I watched Clarissa Martinez from the National Council of La Raza, an organization that calls themselves the largest Latino Advocacy organization in the nation, and Dan Garza from The Libre Initiative work in tandem to bash our President on a host of issues, I realized what I was observing, the fleecing of our Spanish language community facilitated by what appears to be a Republican anchor, A Koch funded Republican operative and an Immigrant "advocate" oblivious as to who she's agreeing with and more importantly, oblivious that she was being used for the furtherance of the Republican/Koch agenda.

I have included a diagram of the Koch Brothers Network which shows The Libre Initiative as a Koch funded operation.
