DREAM Act Draws Bipartisan Support around the Country

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Thursday’s introduction of the bipartisan DREAM Act has elicited positive responses from faith, business and law enforcement leaders across the country.

The bill, sponsored by Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina), Dick Durbin (D-Illinois), Jeff Flake (R-Arizona) and Charles Schumer (D-New York), would allow certain immigrants who were brought ...

Los Registrantes del TPS Merecen la Oportunidad de Tarjetas Verdes

Posted by:

Por David Sperling

 

Más de 200,000 salvadoreños y hondureños han tenido el Estatus de Protección Temporal por más de 16 años, pero el fin del programa puede estar cerca.

 

A los haitianos que tienen TPS desde el 2010 se les ha dicho que empiecen a empacar sus maletas, y el embajador de Estados Unidos en El Salvador declaró recientemente que “Temporal significa temporal”.

No creo que la administración de Trump termine simplemente el TPS e intente deportar a los beneficiarios. No tendría sentido. ...

More than 200,000 Salvadorans and Hondurans have had Temporary Protected Status for more than16 years, but the end of the program may be in sight.

 

Haitians who have TPS since 2010 have been told to start packing their bags, and the U.S, ambassador to El Salvador stated recently that “Temporary means temporary.”

 

I don’t believe that the Trump administration will simply terminate TPS and attempt to deport the beneficiaries.  It would make no sense. The 190,000 TPS beneficiaries from El ...

PANICO HISPANO? MANTENTE SERENO Y DISFRUTA EL VERANO

Posted by:

El Día de Conmemoración de los Caídos (en inglés Memorial Day) es el día no oficial que inicia el verano – un tiempo para los de Long Island para  relajarse y mirar hacia el futuro a los cielos soleados y las playas hermosas.

Entonces, mientras me acomodaba para el feriado de fin de semana, encontré un reporte del Newsday con el escalofriante titular en la página 1: “LI-Área de Deportación”. Más pánico Hispano.

En realidad, el reporte estaba bastante balanceado, indicando que ...

HISPANIC PANIC? KEEP COOL AND ENJOY THE SUMMER

By David M. Sperling

Memorial Day is the unofficial start of the summer — a time for Long Islanders to relax and look forward to sunny skies and beautiful beaches.

So, while easing into vacation mode for the holiday weekend, I happened upon a report in Newsday with the scary Page 1 headline:  “LI-Area Deportation Surge.”  More Hispanic panic!

Actually, the report was fairly balanced, noting that 77 percent of the 41,898 immigrants arrested nationwide during President Trump’s first 100 days had criminal ...

RISKS AND REWARDS IN CONSULAR PROCESSING

Posted by:

By David Sperling

Living life to the fullest requires an assumption of risk. As the Spanish proverb goes, “El que No Riesga No Gana”  (He who never takes a risk never wins.)

Any entrepreneur knows that failure is always a possibility, but you can never succeed if you don’t take a chance. On the other hand, some people are afraid to fly on  airplanes, which is by far the safest manner of transportation.

The question is, What is a reasonable risk, and what ...

RIESGOS Y RECOMPENSAS EN EL PROCESAMIENTO CONSULAR

Posted by:

 

Por David Sperling

Vivir la vida al máximo supone un poco de riesgo. Como dice el proverbio español, “El que no arriesga no gana”.

Cualquier empresario sabe que el fracaso es siempre una posibilidad, pero nunca puedes tener éxito si no te arriesgas. Por otra parte, algunas personas tienen miedo de volar en los aviones, la cual es la forma más segura de transporte.

La pregunta es, ¿Qué es un riesgo razonable, y cuáles son las posibilidades de fracaso?

En mis 22 años como ...

VISA-U COLOCA A VICTIMAS DE CRIMENES EN CAMINO PARA LA TARJETA VERDE

El “pánico hispano” está poniendo un amortiguador innecesario en las relaciones entre la policía y la comunidad de inmigrantes.

El trabajo de la policía local es proteger a todos los residentes, independientemente del estatus legal. Pero la policía no puede hacer su trabajo de manera efectiva sin el apoyo de la comunidad.

De hecho, puede haber buenas razones para que algunos inmigrantes indocumentados eviten el contacto policial, especialmente si tienen antecedentes penales, asociados con pandillas o ...

U-VISA PUTS CRIME VICTIMS ON PATH TO GREEN CARD

Posted by:

By David Sperling and Erick Marroquin

“Hispanic panic” is putting an unnecessary damper on relations between law enforcement and the immigrant community.

The job of local police is to protect all residents, regardless of legal status. But the police cannot do their jobs effectively without community support.

There may in fact be good reasons for some undocumented immigrants to avoid police contact, especially if they have a criminal record, gang associations or a prior deportation order.

But undocumented immigrants with a clean record have ...

GETTING A TATTOO? VERY BAD IDEA

Posted by:

By David Sperling

I personally never liked tattoos. But when you are young and immature, as we all were, you might considering getting one to prove your love to your mother or girlfriend, because it looks cool, or to show allegiance to your particular tribe.

You might have a different idea a few years in the future when you are looking for a job or trying to make a good impression in different circles.

But if you are not a U.S. Citizen, there’s ...
