When “Getting in Line” Becomes a Long Nightmare By Òmìnira (The story of Òmìnira (pseudonym) shows the diversity of undocumented youth in the U.S., whose struggles are often attributed to the Latino (or Mexican) immigrant communities. Òmìnira is a DREAMer from Nigeria who faces the challenges of an undocumented status as a result of an immigration system and its actors which pray and benefit from the vulnerability of migrants. Unfortunately, Òmìnira was did not qualify due to the age requirement under President Obama’s Executive Order issued in June 2012 (Deferred Action) which would have granted her a temporary permit. Today, she faces an uncertain future as a result of the political stand still on immigration reform. I am thankful to Òmìnira for reaching and sharing her story through Mundo Citizen, as it is one that highlights the complexity of an arbitrary immigration system. It dispels the ‘get in the line’ or ‘follow the law’ argument anti-immigration proponents like to spout in their attempt to defend a system that fails to account for fairness, justice, and simply… humanity. Nancy Landa, Mundo Citizen) I am not supposed to be undocumented. After all, I followed the rules. As the anti-immigration proponents would have it, I tried to get “in line.” So interested was my family in getting in line that we have so far employed the assistance of four (4) different immigration attorneys. But as reality would have it the legal immigration process or “the line” is arbitrary and complicated, and for these very reasons it is easy for lawyers and legal representatives to prey on the legally vulnerable. Let me explain. When I was 14 years old my father was granted political asylum in the United States. My father has been a political journalist since the 70s and was a member of an underground opposition group protesting Nigeria’s successive military dictatorships. For this, my paternal grandmother and my eldest brother were shot, our house set on fire (my right leg sustained a 2nd degree burn, I call it my battle scar), and my father sentenced to jail, in absentia. When the asylum application was granted, my family was in a host country and two years later (at 16 years old) we came to join my father in the United States. For the first time in a long while we were not only safe but also free to start a life, any life. Or so we thought. At the time, the lawyer working on my father’s case advised him that it was not necessary to file a separate derivative asylee relative application for us since he had listed my siblings and I on his granted asylum application. A grave mistake! This same lawyer was later suspended on three occasions including, finally by the Board of Immigration Appeals (BOIA). He was charged with violating several rules requiring an attorney to represent his clients competently. But by then the damage was partly done, we had missed the two-year filling period for the derivative application. My family then turned to lawyer

Gracia Molina de Pick: A strong voice in San Diego education By Pablo J. Sainz In San Diego, the name of Mrs. Gracia Molina de Pick is synonymous with leadership, community service and, above all, education. In her native Mexico City, as a young girl, she fought tirelessly for women’s right to vote. After marrying an American businessman, Molina de Pick came to San Diego more than 50 years ago, focusing on promoting the rights of Mexicans and Chicanos in the county. In 1970, being a professor in the Chicano Movement, she helped to found the Chicano Studies Department at San Diego Mesa College, one of the first educational institutions to establish a research center focused on Mexicans in the United States. Last year, Molina de Pick made a donation of $80,000 to the same department to establish scholarships for Latino students and to further promote the academic study of Chicano culture. As a thank you for her support, San Diego Mesa College raised funds to create the Gracia Molina de Pick Glass Gallery, which through photographs and historical artifacts tells about the efforts Molina de Pick made towards a more equitable society. “It will be a permanent reminder of Gracia, what she has done for the students of San Diego Mesa College and what she has done for Chicano history,” said Pamela Luster, president of San Diego Mesa College, during the inauguration of the glass gallery on 20 March, a day before the 86th birthday of Molina de Pick. “I was not expecting this,” said Molina de Pick moments after being received with applause from those attending the event, which took place near the administrative offices of San Diego Mesa College.

Gracia Molina de Pick: mujer de armas tomar Por Pablo J. Sáinz

En San Diego, el nombre de la Señora Gracia Molina de Pick es sinónimo con liderazgo, servicio comunitario y, sobre todo, educación. En su natal Ciudad de México, siendo apenas una jovencita, luchó incansablemente por el derecho femenino al voto. (see Gracia, page 7) Después de casarse con un em-

presario estadounidense, Molina de Pick llegó a San Diego hace más de 50 años, enfocándose en promover los derechos de los mexicanos y chicanos en el condado. En 1970, siendo profesora en pleno Movimiento Chicano, ayudó a fundar el Departamento de Estudios Chicanos en San Diego Mesa College, una de las primeras instituciones educativas en establecer un centro

de estudios enfocado en los mexicanos en Estados Unidos. Molina de Pick hizo un donativo de $80,000 a ese mismo departamento para apoyar a estudiantes latinos con becas y para seguir promoviendo el estudio académico de la cultura chicana. Como agradecimiento por su (vea Gracia, página 4)

“Literature encompasses the human experience in endless ways” By Pablo J. Sáinz

Growing up between San Diego and Tijuana, Francisco Bustos soon discovered that the border became an inspiration for him to become a writer. “I started writing poetry in Spanglish, Ingleñol, English, and Spanish,” Bustos said. “Personal experiences in places like Tijuana, San Ysidro, Chula Vista, and the South Bay gave me lots of border-ish things to talk about, from people, to environments, to foods, to art (especially in the writing and music worlds).” Although his experiences were common in San Diego, he noticed that those experiences weren’t included in the literature courses he took as an undergraduate and later as a graduate student at San Diego State University’s creative writing program. So, as soon as he became a full-time English professor at Southwestern College, in Chula Vista, Bustos’ goal was to expose as many students as possible to border writers, authors who live in the border or who turn the border into the central theme in their writings. As part of that mission, he has taught courses on Chicano, border, and Latin American literature. And, most importantly, he has made the Guest Writer Series at Southwestern (see Omínira, page 4) College, a school with a majority of

Latino students, more inclusive –and bilingual. “I was always made to feel that I belonged and that the influence of border culture and region was important to my work in and out of the classrooms,” Bustos said. Bustos, with the support of SWC World Languages Department, is organizing the 5th Annual Spring Literary Festival at Southwestern College starting on April 7th and running through early May. The literary festival will present a diverse series of readings from writers from all over San Diego, and Baja California. “We are lucky to have writers write in our region, so rich and so meaningful,” Bustos said. Among the writers visiting Southwestern College for the festival are Tim Hernandez, author of Mañana Means Heaven on April 10th, and several Tijuana poets visiting on April 8th. There will also be a science fiction writing workshop on May 1st. “I think that when a college or university opens its doors, it validates the book, and students get to experience what writers are writing,” said Sonia Gutierrez, a poet who will be reading from her bilingual book Spider Woman / La Mujer Araña on Tuesday, April 8th.

Acapulco: Back from the Brink? By Kent Paterson FRONTERA NORTESUR

nomic trajectory has mostly been downward, he said. “Every year is worse than the year before,� the seasoned server said. A soft-spoken man, Ruiz remembered working decades ago on La Roqueta Island in the bay, when the tourist breakdown was about 50 percent foreigner and 50 percent Mexican national. Nowadays, the number of international visitors can practically be counted on one hand. But Ruiz is not so worried. He is a member of the Jehovah’s Witnesses, a religious sect that is increasingly visible in Acapulco. Ruiz said he once squandered money on booze and women, but has since chosen a straight-arrow path. “The money lasts longer because I don’t buy useless things,� Ruiz said. Moreover, the current economic woes don’t necessarily trouble the devout man. “This doesn’t surprise us.� he added. “We’re living in the end times.� But for Acapulco’s movers and shakers, 2014 represents the new beginning of good times. Although their city was turned upside down by crime

and violence in the past decade, tourism industry boosters and government officials are pulling out the stops to reverse a negative image (acquired from Acapulco’s status as the most homicide-ridden city in Mexico during 2012 and 2013), assuring the public the Bay of Santa Lucia is a safe place to vacation. And they have some successes under their belt. In January 2014, the old warhorse of Mexico tourism hosted the acclaimed Acapulco International Film Festival for the ninth year, with Sylvester Stallone showing up as this year’s guest of honor. In a widely broadcast interview with Televisa’s Adela Micha, old Rambo spoke highly of Acapulco and Mexico. Following up on the film fest, the Guerrero State Secretariat of Tourism Promotion (SEFOTUR) reported that the 97 percent hotel occupancy rate in the Punta Diamante zone, coinciding with the Mexican Tennis Open which concluded earlier this month, had exceed expectations. A year ago, the Costera main tourist drag resembled a military proving ground as con-

voy after convoy of soldiers, marines and police cruised up and down the bayside boulevard. While patrols still make their presence known, the security deployment is less intense. In contrast, rolling crowds pack popular Condesa Beach on some weekend evenings. According to the municipal government, more than 94,000 Mexican tourists visited Acapulco the holiday weekend of March 15-17, pumping around $20 million into the economy. The 83.6 percent hotel occupancy rate was nearly 13 points higher than in the same weekend of 2013, according to the official statistics. Different branches of government are injecting tax money into a tourism rebound. For instance, SEFOTUR has announced that it will spend about $2 million to help stage 10 international conferences this year in Acapulco and Ixtapa up the Pacific coast, including June’s Mexican National Petroleum Congress. Nationally, Acapulco has a powerful ally in Claudia Ruiz Massieu, Mexico’s current federal tourism secretary, who just happens to be from a prominent local family. A member of President Pena Nieto’s PRI party, the 41-yearold Ruiz is the niece of former President Carlos Salinas and the daughter of former Guerrero Governor Jose Francisco Ruiz Massieu, who was assassinated in Mexico City in 1994. Ruiz is widely considered a possible candidate for the Guerrero governorship in 2015. If the onetime federal lawmaker follows the same career path as her father, she will be in the political pipeline for the Mexican White House and in the running to become Mexico’s first female president. As one of her first orders of business, Ruiz took charge of the committee that will oversee the return of the famed Tourism Tianguis to Acapulco in 2015 after a controversial, three-year rotation to other Mexican cities. A mega-event in the tourist business, the big gathering is the place for industry wholesalers and insid-

ers. Acapulco’s powers-that-be are also attempting to score another if more elusive coup in the tourist world: the return of the notorious if free-spending spring breakers from the U.S. While the spring vacation promoter Student City prominently listed Acapulco packages beginning at $999 on its website this season, few if any U.S. young people took up the offer, according to news reports. Local officials vow to try again next year. For the 21st century, the city is getting new infrastructure, including a big tunnel through the hills to facilitate traffic flows and a big city-style public transportation system called the Acabus. Acapulco apartment manager Apolonio Ceballos is among supporters of the bus project. “It will help out all the residents and get rid of the old system,� Ceballos said. “It’s bad. The drivers do whatever they want.� Long known for running more than a few pedestrians over, many drivers dash through the streets with stereos blaring electronic, rock or banda music. Supposedly banned several municipal governments ago, drivers’ assistants called chalanes hang from the side doors of buses trying to snag passengers like a fisher casting for a big fat tuna. Many buses sport gaudy murals and names. To name a few: “Wolverine,� “Fandango� and “Sexi Bitch,� the latter featuring two women, a blonde and a brunette, engaged in a provocative act. Some of the four-wheeled fiestas still display signs that demand: “No Acabus.� The Acabus is a key barometer for the new Acapulco. The ultimate success or failure of the ambitious project will indicate whether they city is moving ahead or staying mired in a whirlpool of special, often obscure interests. Although the Acabus’ passenger terminals are completed, no buses run to service them as of yet, while

The U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights (OCR) released today the first comprehensive look at civil rights data from every public school in the country in nearly 15 years. The Civil Rights Data Collection (CRDC) from the 201112 school year was announced by U.S. Department of Education Secretary Arne Duncan and U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder at J.O. Wilson Elementary School in Washington, D.C. This is the first time since 2000 that the Department has compiled data from all 97,000 of the nation’s public schools and its 16,500 school districtsrepresenting 49 million students. And for the first time ever, state-, district- and school-level information is accessible to the public in a searchable online database atcrdc.ed.gov. “This data collection shines a clear, unbiased light on places that are delivering on the promise of an equal education for every child and places where the largest gaps remain. In all, it is clear that the United States has a great distance to go to meet our goal of providing opportunities for every student to succeed,” U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan said. “As the President’s education budget reflects in every elementfrom preschool funds to Pell Grants to Title I to special education funds-this administration is committed to ensuring equity of opportunity for all.” “This critical report shows that racial disparities in school

discipline policies are not only well-documented among older students, but actually begin during preschool,” said Attorney General Eric Holder. “Every data point represents a life impacted and a future potentially diverted or derailed. This Administration is moving aggressively to disrupt the school-toprison pipeline in order to ensure that all of our young people have equal educational opportunities.” The federal government has collected civil rights data about schools since 1968, but the Obama Administration revamped the CRDC to include key information on preschool student and school discipline tactics. The data measures whether all students have equal educational opportunity and provides critical information to the Department on enforcing federal civil rights laws. CRDC data helps inform policy and regulatory work by the federal government. For example, the Departments of Education and Justice recently released guidelines to school districts on zero-tolerance policies and discipline tactics, a powerful example of the federal government using data to take action to bolster outcomes and reduce disparities for minority students. The data released today reveals particular concern around discipline for our nation’s young men and boys of color, who are disproportionately affected by suspensions and zero-tolerance policies in schools. Suspended students are less likely to graduate on time and more likely to be suspended again. They are also more likely to repeat a grade, drop out, and become involved

in the juvenile justice system. The 2011-2012 release shows that access to preschool programs is not a reality for much of the country. In addition, students of color are suspended more often than white students, and black and Latino students are significantly more likely to have teachers with less experience who aren’t paid as much as their colleagues in other schools. The 2011-12 school year was the first time the CRDC collected data on preschool discipline and the first year that all public schools reported data separately for Native-Hawaiian/Pacific Islanders. As a result, the CRDC shows that racial disparities in discipline begin in the early years of schooling: Native-Hawaiian/Pacific Islander kindergarten students are held back a year at nearly twice the rate of white kindergarten students. “This rich information allows us to identify gaps and cases of discrimination to partner with states and districts to ensure equal access to educational opportunities,” said Catherine E. Lhamon, assistant secretary for civil rights. “From Native American tribal nations to inner city barrios, all of our children deserve a high quality education.” Among the key findings: Access to preschool. About 40% of public school districts do not offer preschool, and where it is available, it is mostly part-day only. Of the school districts that operate public preschool programs, barely half are available to all students within the district. (see Survey page 4)

Francisco, Año Primero: Misericordia, Encuentro y Misión Por Mar Muñoz-Visoso Muchos son los análisis y valoraciones que se han hecho en estos días con respecto al balance del primer año del Papa Francisco. En esta semana que marca el aniversario del comienzo oficial del pontificado (19 de marzo) yo quisiera añadir tres palabras, siguiendo el estilo pedagógico del propio Francisco: encuentro, misericordia y misión. Empiezo con la misericordia, un tema central de su enseñanza. Durante este primer año, Francisco ha repetido una y otra vez que Dios no se cansa de perdonarnos, que somos nosotros quienes nos cansamos de pedir perdón. Ha comparado a la Iglesia con un hospital de campaña que debe acoger y atender a los heridos y moribundos de ese campo de batalla diario que es la vida. Y nos ha dicho que la Iglesia ha de ser como la casa del padre misericordioso, que da a sus hijos todo lo que tiene, y que no se cansa de esperar al que se ha marchado y sale a encontrarlo al camino cuando lo ve regresar. Pero ¿de dónde le viene al Papa Francisco esta sensibilidad especial hacia la misericordia divina? Para entenderlo debemos primero remontarnos a su infancia, al Colegio de la Misericordia en el Barrio de Flores, en Buenos Aires, donde Jorge Mario Bergoglio recibió su educación primaria. La escuela estaba regentada por la congregación religiosa de las Hijas de Nuestra Señora de la Misericordia, quienes aparentemente imbuyeron en el corazón y la mente del pequeño Jorge esta noción de Dios como un Padre misericordioso desde muy temprano. También su lema episcopal, “miserando atque

Òmìnira’s story a long nightmare (con’t from page 1) #2 following recommendations from a number of people. Lawyer #2 ran an international humanitarian organization. After reviewing our case, he advised that since the two-year filling period had passed I had to file an individual asylum application based on my fathers granted case and in this application we would explain the delay in filing. And so we filed the application. Another big mistake. During the interview with the Asylum Officer, (which the lawyer failed to attend), we were asked why my father had not filed the derivative asylee application instead given the nature of the case. In the end, the Asylum officer sent a referral notice stating that: Although you have established changed circumstances materially affecting your eligibility for asylum or extraordinary circumstances directly related to your delay in filing, you failed to file your application within a reasonable period of time given those circumstances. Unsurprisingly, I was thereafter served the dreaded Notice to Appear (NTA) before an immigration judge. To prepare for court, we asked lawyer # 2 to represent us at the court at which point he revealed that he was not in fact an immigration attorney but actually a notary!!! (A 2009 article by The Washington Examiner finally exposed lawyer #2 for running a fraudulent immigration practice following a number of complaints). In desperation, my family searched for a new attorney. Many did not want to take the case but finally we engaged the assistance of lawyer #3. As advised, my family checked to make certain that he was in fact

eligendo” (mirándolo con misericordia lo eligió), que luce ahora también en su escudo papal, nos dice que esa lección bien aprendida le ha seguido acompañando en su vida adulta como sacerdote y obispo. Es como sí quisiera asegurarse de que todos entienden que es solo por la misericordia divina que es lo que es y hace lo que hace. En segundo lugar, quiero resaltar la cultura del encuentro a la que está llamando a toda la Iglesia y a la sociedad civil. Esto va más allá de un estilo o una preferencia personal. Sí, al Cardenal Bergoglio no le gustaba estar encerrado en una oficina y en un palacio. Ha vivido siempre yendo al encuentro del otro, especialmente del pobre y el necesitado —de quién dice tenemos mucho que aprender— pero también del que es o piensa diferente. Sólo en ese contexto de diálogo y encuentro pueden ser las mentes y los corazones evangelizados. Sólo así construida la paz y la convivencia social. La Iglesia, dice, debe preocuparse en formar discípulos misioneros que salgan al encuentro del otro. Por otro lado, su propio contexto de religioso jesuita le hace buscar comunidad, prefiriendo la casa de huéspedes al palacio apostólico. Pero también es, a un tiempo, protagonista y producto del contexto eclesiólogico latinoamericano donde la Iglesia sin dejar de ser jerárquica posee, en general, un carácter mucho más comunitario y misionero. De ahí en énfasis en los procesos más que en los eventos. Finalmente, quisiera resaltar el tema de la misión. En su exhortación apostólica, La alegría del Evangelio, el Papa Francisco propone poner a toda la Iglesia en estado misionero.

Hay que redescubrir la misión como algo esencial a la vida de la Iglesia, de cada cristiano y de cada comunidad. Francisco hace así extensible a toda la Iglesia el trabajo de la V Conferencia General del Episcopado Latinoamericano en Aparecida, Brasil en 2007 en cuyo documento final él tuvo una gran influencia como presidente de la comisión de redacción. Aparecida llama a la Iglesia latinoamericana a un cambio de mentalidad, a entrar en un proceso de conversión pastoral profunda. Esta propuesta de renovar las comunidades eclesiales y estructuras pastorales para encontrar los cauces adecuados para la transmisión de la fe en Cristo como fuente de una vida plena y digna para todos, es la que hace ahora Francisco a la Iglesia universal, comenzando por el Vaticano. Francisco llama a todos y cada uno a un encuentro personal con Cristo. Éste produce una conversión que impulsa al encuentro con el otro y que es incompatible con la indiferencia y con la inactividad personal en la práctica de la misericordia. El rostro misericordioso del Padre ha encontrado un apóstol. En él, enseñanza y gesto se unen; palabra y acción van de la mano. Seguirlo de cerca ha sido a la vez emocionante y agotador. No puedo esperar a ver qué nos depara el segundo año de Francisco. Pero de una cosa estoy segura: su capacidad de sorprender parece inagotable.

an immigration attorney and engaged him to help us sort through my immigration mess mess. Lawyer # 3 explained to the immigration judge that he would file the proper derivative application, explaining the delay and also an immigrant relative petition based on my father who was now a permanent resident. This request was granted and we accordingly hurriedly provided lawyer # 3 with all the documents and signed papers. After 4 years and 4 hearings lawyer # 3 asked for an individual hearing, against the suggestions of the judge. A disastrous mistake! You see lawyer #3 never filed the I-130, filed the I-730 but never gave an explanation for the delay, and instead tried to file an adjustment of status based on my father’s granted asylum application, a process, which is not legally possible!!! During the trial, the government attorney and judge seemed baffled that he had not filed the 1-130 all this time, when it seemed the most logical thing to do. After a tense debate, the judge finally denied the case based on abandonment (the lawyer couldn’t find my biometrics just as in an earlier hearing he had failed to send the court my medical information, although these were later found in his files). I was ordered deported. The ultimate nightmare had arrived. It is hard to explain the emotions running through me in the hours and days after the deportation order or to express the perpetual frustration, fear, and immense sadness of trying again and again over 8 years to get it right and never quite succeeding. Nor is it easy to explain struggling to accomplish things like getting an education, opening a bank account, or obtaining identification, when for all intents and purposes the system maintains that you shouldn’t exist, you don’t exist, and your existence itself is a crime (illegal). The fact that I’ve tried to follow the rules doesn’t matter, my failure at the hands of oth-

ers seemingly speaks of my criminality. Yet it is so easy for politicians to brandish me and others like me, people seeking life, liberty, and happiness as simply illegal. In the end I was not deported. With the help of an incredible attorney, lawyer #4, a Motion to Reopen my case was granted as well as an administrative closure. This has allowed my father (now a U.S citizen) to apply for an immigrant visa for me. This is a BIG relief yet my dreams and goals remain elusive. The immigrant visa will take about 6 years to process and in while I know I have the skills to do so much, all I can do is wait: wait to work, wait to travel, wait to live. Ironically, when the immigrant visa application is complete, I still must leave the U.S. in order to adjust my status thus invoking a 10-year bar to re-entry. And so I wonder, why not abandon it all? Give it up and walk away. Perhaps by giving this all up I might have a chance to live not just exist somewhere else. I really truly wonder….

LA COLUMNA VERTEBRAL El Soporte Informativo Para Millones de Hispanos Por Luisa Fernanda Montero

César Chávez, el héroe que necesita un doble Desde estas líneas hemos ensalzado antes la figura de este defensor de los derechos de los trabajadores que necesita un imitador con urgencia: César Chávez. Si a esta altura del camino usted no sabe quién es César Chávez, está metido en una burbuja, porque entre otras cosas, Diego Luna tuvo la buena idea de hacer una película sobre él que está por estrenarse. Pero el problema real, es que si usted no sabe quién es César Chávez, es porque no ha tenido interés en saber qué pasa con su comunidad y ese, justamente ese, es uno de los problemas más graves que tenemos los hispanos en Estados Unidos. El otro problema, claro, es la ausencia de líderes como César Chávez; y no se sabe cuál de los dos es más grave. El desinterés de muchos por lo que pasa con sus comunidades y con la comunidad hispana como tal, tiene consecuencias, máxime cuando seguimos siendo víctimas de discriminación y sufrimos las desventajas que nos deja la imposibilidad de lograr una

reforma migratoria que saque de las sombras y le abra un camino a la ciudadanía a los millones de inmigrantes indocumentados que viven y trabajan en este país. Sí, hay líderes, muchos y muy buenos. Son ellos los que impulsan, y vuelven a impulsar y siguen impulsando la reforma migratoria a punta de marchas y ayunos. Hay líderes imprescindibles en los barrios y en las pequeñas localidades, hay líderes comunitarios que trabajan día a día en las organizaciones no gubernamentales que cumplen infinidad de funciones fundamentales. Pero no tenemos un César Chávez. No tenemos un César Chávez y lo necesitamos con urgencia. Necesitamos un líder que tenga su misma determinación para pelear por la libertad y la dignidad de los millones de inmigrantes que hoy no la tienen en Estados Unidos. Porque no hay libertad cuando las familias son separadas, cuando hombres trabajadores y honestos son deportados injustamente por no

Luisa Fernanda Montero tener la “legalidad” que le da un papel. No hay dignidad cuando los niños deben crecer alejados de sus padres ni cuando se le niega a un hombre el pago justo por su trabajo. No hay libertad cuando se vive con miedo. César Chávez fue un dirigente sindicalista que no se conformó con lo que tenía y tras formar La Unión de Trabajadores Agrícolas -United Farm Workers Association-, peleó hasta el cansancio por todo aquello que no tenían y por el mejoramiento de sus condiciones humanas y laborales. Son muchos los avances que en esta sociedad han logrado hombres como Chávez o Martin Luther King, entre otros, pero lamentablemente, no todos tienen acceso a ellos en estos tiempos en los que millones de inmigrantes, trabajadores y honestos siguen esperando un lugar en esta sociedad. Necesitamos muchos César Chávez.

GUEST EDITORIAL:

Obama Should Immediately Halt Deportations By Alvaro Huerta President Obama needs to immediately bring to an end his deportation policy. Obama has deported almost 2 million undocumented immigrants. He has also doubled down on harsh enforcement measures, such as close collaboration between employers, local officials and Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents. Undocumented immigrants have been organizing against such policies. Not satisfied with receiving temporary relief under the 2012 Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, for example, undocumented immigrant youth, or DREAMers, have demanded relief for their parents, too. Now they have acquired a significant ally. On March 2, Janet Murguia, president of the National Council of La Raza, a prominent Latino advocacy group, characterized Obama as “the deporter in chief” and demanded that the president take unilateral action to halt deportations. The organization had previously echoed Obama’s principles on immigration reform, such as militarization of the U.S.-Mexico border, employer sanctions, and other stringent measures like fines and back taxes on aspiring citizens. In speaking out against Obama’s deportations, Murguia finally expressed the frustrations and demands of undocumented immigrants and their advocates. This potentially represents trouble not

only for Obama but also for Democrats in general. Obama wasted no time in defending himself as the “champion in chief” of immigration reform. Latinos know “I’ve got their back,” he asserted. But with his record on immigration not much different from Republicans, Latinos are torn about their electoral loyalties. In a period of dramatic demographic change in this country, it’s time for Latinos to flex their political and economic clout by invoking their basic human rights and asking to be treated with dignity and respect. Instead of accepting immigration reform plans from Democrats and Republicans that exclude many or all of 11 undocumented immigrants from a pathway towards citizenship, this large and heterogeneous group should demand what immigrants deserve and earn on a daily basis: amnesty. Obama can still redeem himself with Latinos. He should exercise his executive privileges by halting deportations and providing immediate relief to the millions of undocumented immigrants living in the shadows. Nothing less will suffice. Alvaro Huerta, a UCLA visiting scholar at the Chicano Studies Research Center, is the author of “Reframing the Latino Immigration Debate: Toward a Humanistic Paradigm” (San Diego State University Press, 2013).

House Democrats’ filing of discharge petition to force immigration vote is nada más than politics By María Gabriela “Gaby” Pacheco LATINALISTA

Discharge Petition — A procedural tactic that allows an absolute majority of the House of Representatives (218 lawmakers) to force a floor vote on a bill, even if leaders who control the House floor oppose the measure. Successful use of discharge petitions conceivably could help the minority party hijack the majority party’s legislative agenda.

something drastic had to be done to come on top of Republicans in the next elections. They need something to run on because Democrats are in great danger of losing the Senate. Thus, this big ploy of the discharge petition. It’s all politics folks. And politicians on both sides, Republicans and Democrats, much like Rep. Becerra are playing with our lives. What makes me sad is the false hope we are giving our community. I hope members of the media read this and not misinform their readers. It really is in most cases choosing the lesser of two evils. This is why I believe advocates can’t be politically affiliated. They can’t serve their party while serving their communities. There’s a conflict of interest and more than once we have seen people chose party over people. Harsh but true reality. I will however speak the truth even if I get belittled, bullied, harassed or even if I lose friends. I put my family and community first because I have seen the pain too close to forget it. I know what it feels like to be woken up in the middle of the night by a police officer and ICE agents in my home. I have seen the fear in the eyes of my mother and my brother as they were saying goodbye. I have seen children cry for their parents. I have also seen advocates be torn because they know they are wrong but their loyalty to their party, power, and access blinds them… paralyzes them like fear paralyzes our community.

On Wednesday, March 26, Democrats in the House of Representatives announced plans to file a discharge petition to force House Republicans to vote on HR 15, the “Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act.” The announcement, though lauded by the White House, has only stirred lukewarm reception among many of us in immigrant advocacy groups. I really wish this was a real attempt at getting immigration reform done, but everyone knows this is just a fake attempt to make Republicans hurt. There was no thoughtful process in putting HR15 together. If this was a true effort, then this legislation led by only Democrats, should be more progressive than it is and it wouldn’t carry all the awful things the Senate legislation picked up during its mark-up period. The truth is Democrats want Republicans to hurt. Republicans haven’t been good to our María Gabriela “Gaby” Pacheco is co-dicommunities but they are still in power so rector of the Bridge Project.

Is it allright that your boss controls Is the GOP backpedaling on the “GOP”? your access to birth control? By Tom Schaller, Ph.D., LATINO DECISIONS

By Kelly Culwell, MD On Tuesday, the Supreme Court heard oral arguments in a pair of cases that challenge the birth control benefit — Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc. and Conestoga Wood Specialties Corp. v. Sebelius. In each of these cases, employers at for-profit corporations want to deny their employees legally mandated insurance coverage for birth control, based on the bosses’ personal religious beliefs. At Planned Parenthood, we see firsthand every day why these case matters so much. Planned Parenthood health care providers across the country see the benefits of affordable birth control every day. We also hear from women who are forced to choose between groceries or filling their prescription – between paying the rent or choosing the form of birth control that’s right for them. Birth control is only a “social issue” if you’ve never had to pay for it. Here are the facts. Ninety-nine percent of American women between the ages of 15 and 44 who are sexually active have used birth control at some point in their lives — and providing access to it is commonsense and mainstream health care. Birth control is tremendously important to women for all kinds of reasons, including to control certain medical conditions including endometriosis and to plan our families. In fact, according to the Guttmacher Institute, nearly 60 percent of birth control pill users cite health benefits a contributing factor for using the birth control pill. We also know that birth control can be expensive – with some of the most effective methods costing upwards of $1,000. But when women have access to the full range of contraception methods – without cost barriers – we can actually reduce unintended pregnancy rates and the need for abortion. We also know that access to affordable birth control is just

smart for everyone. For every dollar spent on family planning, taxpayers save nearly $6 in public money. That’s why, after decades of discriminatory coverage by insurance companies and at the recommendation of leading medical groups, the Affordable Care Act requires all insurance policies to cover the full range of FDA approved birth control methods with no out-ofpocket cost to women — because it’s part of preventive care. Yet we still face an ongoing fight over birth control in this country. There are people — politicians, special interest groups, and now bosses — who want to take away access to affordable birth control. Based on nothing more than their personal beliefs, employers at for-profit corporations have gone all the way to the Supreme Court to try to stop their employees from getting access to this important care they need. If the Supreme Court rules in favor of the corporations, it could jeopardize the birth control coverage that millions of women rely on. It could give bosses a free pass to discriminate and create a slippery slope in which employers, based solely on their personal religious beliefs, could deny coverage of any medical treatment or procedure to their employees that they disagree with — including mental health services, vaccines, surgery, blood transfusions, and more. That’s why we’ve seen so many people, including doctors and medical groups speak out against these efforts and why Planned Parenthood, no matter what the court decides, will continue to stand alongside women and their families to ensure they get the health care they need – without interference from their bosses.

A year ago this month, the Republican National Committee released its post-2012 election political autopsy report: the “Growth & Opportunity Project.” The “GOP”—a quite clever acronym, indeed—was the national party’s response to critics, both internal and external, about what ailed the party and what it could do to cure itself. The Republicans had cause to believe the 2012 presidential election was winnable: Barack Obama was a vulnerable incumbent. Although the president won re-election, he did so by a smaller margin than in his initial election—a rare occurrence in presidential election history. Most surprisingly, Obama won despite a lower national turnout in 2012 than 2008, which typically implies a smaller share of non-white voters. That was not the case, however: Despite lower overall turnout in 2012 compared to 2008, the non-white share of the electorate inched up from 26 percent in 2008 to 28 percent four years later. The “GOP” addresses a number of the party’s problems, including its technological and field campaign deficiencies. But much of the document’s focus is on ways to re-brand the party in an effort to appeal to a wider swath of the American electorate, with a special emphasis placed on Latino voters, who in the 2012 presidential election accounted for a double-digit share (10 percent) of the electorate for the first time. Section 2 of the “GOP,” entitled “America Looks Different,” addresses the party’s problem with Latino voters head-on: “If Hispanic Americans perceive that a GOP nominee or candidate does not want them in the country (i.e., self-deportation), they will not pay attention to our next sentence. It does not matter what we say about education, jobs or the economy; if Hispanics think we do not want them here, they will close their ears to our poliKelly Culwell, MD, MPH is the Medical Di- cies.” The document specifically recommends rector of Planned Parenthood of the Pa- that the party embrace comprehensive immicific Southwest. gration reform.

As a July 2013 poll by Latino Decisions confirms, opposition to immigration reform presents a formidable obstacle to the Republican Party’s appeal to Latino voters, many of whom would consider voting for Republican candidates for office, including the presidency, were they to support a comprehensive immigration reform package that includes a pathway to citizenship provision. Potential Republican presidential contenders Marco Rubio, Jeb Bush and Paul Ryan would potentially enjoy a significant spike in support from Latino voters by backing comprehensive immigration reform. In Rubio’s case, his support jumps to 54 percent, more than twice Mitt Rom-ney’s 2012 share of the Latino vote (27 percent). Although many notable “establishment” Republicans, including former party chairs Ken Mehlman and Ed Gillespie, want the party to find a reasonable solution on immigration in order to move the party past the issue, most congressional Republicans and the conservative voters who elect them remain opposed to reform. And as the Los Angeles Times reported this week, RNC chairman Reince Preibus also seems to be backpedaling on the issue. Preibus “downplayed the role of immigration reform as a gateway issue for Latino voters, saying it was more important for the party to simply engage with the community to share its message on other key issues,” the Times reported. The RNC chair even went so far as to clarify that the “GOP” was merely commissioned by the party, and is therefore not official party policy. The Preibus press conference does not bode well for a Republican Party hoping in 2016 to attract Latino voters, the majority of whom will remain “ears closed” to the party’s message unless it agrees to a reasonable solution on immigration reform.

A Living Wage is an Equal Voice By Luz Vega-Marquis Take a look at your bills: What do you pay for food, housing, clothing, health care, utilities and transportation? How much would it take for your family to just get by? Could you make it on $15,000 a year? $21,000? What would your family have to do without to make ends meet? What exactly does it take to make it in America? The working poor are not fundamentally different, nor do they practice some kind of magical math that allows them to support their families on wages that would sink your own. This year, President Obama called for a raise in the federal minimum wage from $7.25 to $9 an hour. The controversy that followed was as predictable as it was irrelevant to those with the most at stake: the low-wage working poor. As usual, voices of those most affected have been glaringly absent. Also missing is any discussion of the bread-and-butter question: What is it actually like to live on $7.25 or $9 an hour? Does either of these numbers constitute what working families need and deserve? Although the terms “minimum wage” and “living wage” are sometimes used interchangeably, their meanings are quite different. A minimum wage is the lowest a business can legally pay. A living wage is what its workers need to meet their families’ basic needs – to stave off the choice between a gallon of gas and a gallon of milk. A full-time worker at the federal minimum wage makes $14,500 a year, placing him or her below the federal poverty line if that worker is supporting a family of two or more. A $9-anhour minimum wage would push that annual income up to $21,000. But if you look at that “raise” in inflation-adjusted dollars, it leaves today’s minimum-wage worker making significantly less than he did in 1968. Low-wage workers, despite the “fuzzy math” of the minimum-wage debate, cannot spin paychecks of straw into middle-class gold. The working poor do what they must, whether that means living in substandard housing or making do with low-cost, low-nutrition food. But their bottom-line needs are no different from anyone else’s. President Obama’s savviest move may have been his call for communities to act on their own, passing living-wage ordinances at local and state levels. In Washington State, for ex-

ample, legislators have introduced a measure to raise the state’s minimum wage from $9.32 an hour to $12 an hour by 2017. This livable-wage issue is a priority for the Marguerite Casey Foundation. So when we found out that the general manager of the hotel we had booked months in advance for a staff retreat helped lead the campaign against a minimum-wage increase, we were taken aback. It was too late to cancel our reservation, so we opted to do what we had each day since the foundation’s inception: We would wear our values on our sleeves — literally. The morning of the retreat, 25 staff members arrived at the hotel, all wearing T-shirts saying, WE SUPPORT A LIVING WAGE. The hotel’s general manager soon sought us out. But he had not approached us to debate a living wage. His concern was narrower. “Are there more of you?” he said. In the short term, it was easy enough to reassure him that, no, there were no busloads of protesters heading for the hotel. But the truer answer is, Yes, there are more of us – families across America who believe in the promise of the American Dream. How could we explain that all we wanted was for those who slept in beds and ate food made by minimum-wage workers to question policies and priorities that leave those workers struggling to feed and house their own families? And for businesses like his to recognize that it takes a work force to grow a profit line. No matter how good the product, a business is only as good as the people it employs. Don’t they deserve more than minimum wage? A recent USA Today/Pew Research Center poll found that nearly two-thirds of Republicans (64 percent) and more than nine out of 10 Democrats believe government should take action to reduce poverty. If 25 of us wearing T-shirts stating our support for a living wage rattled the administration of a hotel, what might the 46 million people living in poverty in this country achieve working together? Perhaps they could move the country in the direction where most Americans stand. Luz Vega-Marquis is president and CEO of Marguerite Casey Foundation, which publishes Equal Voice News.

¡ASK A MEXICAN! By Gustavo Arellano Dear Mexican: Can you help me unravel the citrus dilemma? When I am in Mexico or a Mexican restaurant or market I am unable to find lemons (yellow, egg-sized, tart-tasting fruits). Whenever I ask, I get green-colored fruit, which looks and tastes to me like limes (green, smaller than egg-sized, tart tasting fruits). I understand that there are Persian limes and Key limes (smaller, sweeter-tasting). But what are limones, which they sell in the markets? I thought limón was a marketing creation by Sprite/7UP, a blend of lemon and lime juices. Have the genetically modifying corporate food scientists succeeded in creating a limón, and why is it only available in Hispanic markets? Please enlighten me, so my future father-in-law no longer refers to me as El Cabrón! Le Chupacabra Dear Gabacho: Why Mexicans call the limes used in our cooking limones when the Royal Spanish Academy calls that fruit limas is the probably the most confounding question mexicanos have of themselves after why Pancho Villa insisted on using 19th century military tactics at the Battle of Celaya. And the answer boils down to agricultural terms used in Mexico. “If you want a lemon in the motherland, you have to ask for limón amarillo,” says Alfonso Cano, founder and CEO of 1810 Revolutionary Clothing Company, which all aspiring Mexican boxers and MMAers should wear while sparring. Cano has worked in produce for years, and he himself admits the etymological controversy “drives people crazy. The limón Persa is the actual wording used to signify what Americans call limes. If you ask for a lima in Mexico, you will most likely be getting a sweet lime—what Americans call a Key lime, which we call lima dulce or limón criollo.” And if you want to get even more confused: the Persian lime does turn yellow if you let it grow long enough, which makes it look like a lemon. But whatever you want

to call limones, better hoard them fast. The trifecta of a bad harvest, demand, and drug cartels in Mexico’s lime-growing areas has made prices skyrocket: a 40pound case of limes sells wholesale to grocery stores for $115, more than triple its previous historic high. If you think your Mexican neighbors pick from your fruit tree a lot, you ain’t seen nothing yet… Okay, so I’m probably a puta. I’ve had countless partners, a sizable percentage of which were Mexican. Anglo and black men are about the samey: slow to fast, ending with a big blow. Mexican men start like a jackrabbit, banging away at 150 humps a minute. Is it something cultural, inherited, or just a rush to finish? Mamo la Pinga Dear Gabacha: Chula, you ain’t no whore just ‘cause you like to sleep with men. But I have to wonder about your choice of chorizo, because the stats just don’t reflect your reality that men want to finish muy pronto rápido arriba arriba. For instance, the 1992 National Health and Social Life Survey (NHSLS) study conducted by the University of Chicago found that the prevalence of premature ejaculation among gabachos, negritos, and wabs was 19%, 34%, and 27%, respectively, which means that our hombres can hold out pretty good, jackrabbit sexo and all. Far less scientific was the announcement by some app that said its collection of bedroom stats showed New Mexicans had the longest sexytimes—and guess what state in los Estados Unidos has the highest percentage of Mexis?

Acapulco back from the brink? (con’t from page 2) behind-the-scene negotiations take place between state officials and the possible bus system concessionaires. Public safety is the million dollar question on almost everyone’s lips. A long-ticking social time bomb blew up in 2006, when the drug cartel wars came to town and even played out in front of startled tourists. Many Acapulquenos say the security situation has since improved, with important caveats. Three years ago fearful residents stayed home after 9 pm, and the drug-fueled violence made some young people “think twice” about consuming illicit substances, said Dario Velasco, a young activist with the #YoSoy 132 organization. “(Violence) affects us a lot,” he added, “but it has gone down.” Roberto Ramirez, editor for the Guerrero edition of La Jornada daily, noted a reduction in killings, saying the previously “scandalous” episodes of headless or hanging bodies displayed in public had been replaced by a more subdued violence of “one, two and three or more” killings here and there. It’s a pattern that’s taken shape in other cities like Ciudad Juarez or Tijuana, where murder now largely takes place in poorer neighborhoods away from the eyes and ears of tourists. If class and demographic differences were glaring in Mexico prior to the advent of the socalled drug war, the violence has only accentuated social cleavages. Three years ago, the city’s residents were terrified to speak out, Ramirez said, while reporters banded together in groups to cover delicate stories or simply just stopped writing about risky subjects.

In 2010, radio and television station KPBS selected Molina de Pick as one of the Latino leaders of the year. Back then, the educator and activist said it was recognition for the whole community. “It’s a great honor to receive this recognition,” Molina de Pick, who in late 2009 made a strong donation to the library Barrio Logan to establish educational programs in Spanish. “I am happy, but I feel that it is the recognition that the Chicano community deserves.

PAGE 7 Acapulco’s teachers, who shut down schools and staged mass protests in 2011 against extortions, kidnappings and killings, for beginning to turn the tide. “I see a more participatory society on the security issue.” Ramirez said. “It’s not like 2011.” In Acapulco and Mexico, hard numbers are difficult to gauge, because of different reporting methodologies by law enforcement agencies or the fact that many crimes go unreported. For 2012, the Mexico City-based Citizen Council for Public Safety rated Acapulco the second most violent city in the world, falling only behind San Pedro Sula Honduras, with 1,170 murders, or 143 killings per 100,000 residents. Based on government and journalistic sources, Tijuana’s Zeta newspaper reported this month that Acapulco’s 883 murders in 2013 still made it the most violent city in Mexico. If the numbers are accurate, murder dipped about 25 percent last year, but remained historically higheven by the standards of a city and state where violence rooted in land, political and personal conflicts has long marred life. “Violence has always been here,” Ramirez reflected. “Now there’s a larger criminal violence.” No murder statistics are yet publicly available for the first quarter of 2014, but homicide stories are much less noticeable in the local press than at the same time a year ago. Meantime, Acapulco’s residents anticipate a much-needed flow of cash next month when the city’s biggest Mexican tourist season of the year, Semana Santa, or Holy Week, comes to town. Aiming for 100 percent hotel occupancy, officials are predicting the best Semana Santa in years.

The life of Gracia Molina de Pick has inspired many of today’s community leaders in San Diego. Indeed, Molina de Pick is a woman to be reckoned with. She participated in the Chicano Movement of the 1970s. In Mexico, she supported the right of women to vote. She fought for more Latinos to become U.S. citizens and she established educational programs throughout San Diego.

FAMILY FEATURES

Q

uite possibly the ultimate steak, the T-bone embodies the rich blend of varied beef flavors that steak lovers crave, from tender and mild to bold and beefy. On one side of the T-bone is the filet mignon. French for “dainty fillet,” the filet mignon is considered the most tender cut, with a mild beef flavor. On the other side of the T-bone is the strip loin or New York strip, a firm, robust steak that is naturally marbled and offers a bold taste. The bone itself also provides additional flavor in the cooking process. With this pairing of tastes, it is no surprise that the T-bone is considered to be “the best of both worlds” by steak connoisseurs. For more steak recipes, visit www.OmahaSteaks.com.

Ten Tips for Perfect Grilling 1. Clean and preheat your grill on high. 2. Lightly oil everything before you put it on the grill. This helps the searing process and prevents sticking. 3. Season your food before grilling. 4. Sear the outside of steaks when grilling. This really helps with the flavor and juiciness. 5. Use tongs or a spatula to turn your meat on the grill. Using a fork can damage the meat. 6. Cover your grill as much as possible during the grilling process. This helps to lock in the grilled flavor and will help prevent flare-ups.

7. Keep a spray bottle with water handy to douse any unexpected flare-ups. 8. Use the 60/40 grilling method. Grill for 60 percent of the time on the first side, then grill 40 percent of the time after you turn over the food. This will give you an evenly cooked product. 9. Place your cooked product on a clean plate. Never place cooked product on the plate you used to transport the raw product to the grill without thoroughly washing it first.

Ancho Chile Rubbed Grilled T-Bones Prep time: 5 minutes Cook time: 10 minutes Total time: 15 minutes Serves: 4 4 Omaha Steaks T-bone steaks 2 tablespoons olive oil 4 tablespoons Ancho Chile Rub (see recipe below) 12 grilled tri-color sweet baby peppers Preheat grill to medium. Thaw and blot dry steaks. Brush steaks with olive oil. Generously cover both sides of steaks with Ancho Chile Rub by dipping them in rub. Continue until steaks are completely covered. Place steaks on heated grill and grill to desired doneness. (For a medium-rare steak, grill approximately 8 minutes on first side and 6 to 7 minutes on second side.) Remove steaks from grill and garnish with grilled tri-colored sweet baby peppers.

Ancho Chile Rub Makes: 4 tablespoons 1 tablespoon smoked paprika 2 teaspoons sea salt 2 tablespoons ancho chile powder 1 teaspoon brown sugar Combine all ingredients and mix well.

10. Allow your foods to “rest” for 5 minutes between cooking and eating. This will help them retain moisture when you cut into them.

When ready to serve, slice into coins as needed. Unused butter can be stored in the refrigerator for up to one week.

(For a mediumrare steak about 8 minutes on first side and 6 to 7 minutes on second side.) When steaks are finished, brush both sides one final time with pesto. Serve steaks with dollop of unused pesto in center of each and garnish with fresh basil sprig.

Roasted Pepper Pesto Makes: approximately 2 cups 1 cup roasted red peppers, peeled, seeded and chopped 1/4 cup garlic cloves, peeled 1/2 cup pine nuts, toasted 2 tablespoons fresh basil, chopped 1 teaspoon kosher salt 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper 1 cup Parmesan cheese, grated 1 tablespoon lemon juice 1/2 cup olive oil Combine all ingredients except olive oil in food processor or blender, and puree until smooth.
