Barrio Logan residents on B & C defeat: “We will never give up the fight”

GROUP A

BRAZIL CROATIA MEXICO

By Pablo J. Sáinz Even though the Barrio Logan Community Plan Update was repealed in this week’s elections when Propositions B and C were rejected in a citywide vote, Barrio Logan residents and environmental activists have a clear message: The fight for a healthier, cleaner Barrio Logan isn’t over. “We have nothing to lose when we are being poisoned on the daily,” said Brent Beltran, a Barrio Logan resident who was active in the Yes on B & C Campaign. “We have nothing to lose when our community has become a dumping ground for things affluent neighborhoods wouldn’t stand for. We fight not because we like the fight. We fight because we have no other choice.” Community plan supporters also said that Barrio Logan deserves to have a community plan just like other areas in the city. More than anything, they said, the plan has to be implemented to improve children’s health. The Logan Heights area has one of the highest rates of asthma among children and young people in the county. The community plan update would have created a buffer zone for maritime industry, with proper landuse zoning. “Barrio Logan is my home and my district, and I will immediately begin working on a new plan to protect it,” said Councilmember David Alvarez, who has long been a supporter of the community plan update. The No on B & C Campaign, which supporters included Mayor Kevin Faulconer and maritime industry leaders, celebrated their victory, always putting emphasis in protecting jobs. “The broad-based maritime coalition that opposed this Plan is pleased that voters agreed that we can do a better job of protecting regional jobs and the health of Barrio Logan residents,” said Kevin Graney, vice-president of Operations for General Dynamics NASSCO. “We are all ready to work with Mayor Faulconer and Barrio Logan residents and businesses to make the needed improvements that will protect the future of the shipbuilding industry in San Di-

CAMEROON If history is anything to go by, then the home fans should enjoy watching Luiz Felipe Scolari’s charges in the group stage of the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™ in Sao Paulo, Fortaleza and Brasilia. A Seleção have

a good record against all three opponents, although one of them has caused problems of late. Brazil have played all three sides in past World Cups. The Opening Match in 2014 against Croatia is a repeat of Brazil’s first game in 2006, in Germany. On that occasion Kaka’s goal gave victory to the Pentacampeões, who also have fond memories of Cameroon. In the United States, in 1994, goals from Romario, Bebeto and Marcio Santos saw Brazil overcome the Africans 3-0 and book their place in the knockout stage of a tournament that would end with Dunga hoisting the trophy aloft. As for Mexico, it will be the fourth time the two nations have met each other in World Cup history. The record so far shows three Brazilian victories with 11 goals scored and none conceded. The last time they met, in 1962, A Seleção also ended up champions. While Brazil have a positive record against Mexico in World Cups, the host country would do well to heed the lessons provided by a recent series of frustrating defeats at other tournaments. Brazil have lost no less than four finals against El Tri: the 1999 FIFA Confederations Cup, the 2012 Olympic Football Tournament in London, and two CONCACAF Gold Cups, in 1996 and 2003. That’s not to mention lower age groups where Mexico were also Brazil’s nemesis in the 2005 FIFA U-17 World Cup in Peru, and as recently as October, in

World Cup theme of Projeto 4km mural, Latin America’s largest open-air graffiti exhibit Global Views By Thiago Borges INFOSURHOY.COM

SÃO PAULO, Brazil – An openair art gallery is taking shape near Arena Corinthians, which will host six World Cup matches, including the opening match between Brazil and Croatia on June 12. The mural, known as Projeto 4km, covers 10,000 m2 and is expected to be Latin America’s largest open-air graffiti exhibit. The works of graffiti are in the process of receiving a new coat of varnish before the exhibit is scheduled to be unveiled officially on June 10. The 4km of walls will feature 70 works, each covering about 50 meters. The mural runs along Avenida Radial Leste and follows the route of the São Paulo Metro’s Red Line to the soccer stadium. The idea behind the initiative is to promote urban art, enhance the value of the city’s East Zone and introduce new artists. “This route is going to turn into yet another tourist attraction in São Paulo,” said Carolina Fontes, the event manager for the São Paulo State Tourism Secretariat (SETUR). In April, Projeto 4km launched a contest to choose the graffiti artists who would be featured on the wall. A total of 389 people registered 502 graffiti art proposals covering the subjects of soccer, Brazilian fans and the city of São Paulo. The selection criteria included quality, creativity, the artist’s portfolio and the ability to complete the project. The project, which was elaborated by SETUR and the São Paulo World (see Barrio, page 4) Cup Committee, cost a total of R$1.7

In addition to receiving a commission of R$6,500 (US$2,901), each artist received a kit with 40 liters of latex paint, 60 cans of spray paint, masks and rollers to paint the walls. Among those selected are graffiti artists from the states of Goiás, Paraná, Rio de Janeiro, Rio Grande do Sul, Santa Catarina and São Paulo.

Leonardo Dogh, a resident of Itatiba in São Paulo, is portraying Brazilian fans in the mural. “Projeto 4km represents an opportunity to show our work, get a good commission and gain visibility with something that is 100% the work of each artist,” said Dogh, 32, who has supported himself through graffiti for the past two years.

However, one of the four Projeto 4km curators, Diego Zéfix, said graffiti painting isn’t seen as a profession in Brazil. “There’s already a market for this in Europe and the United States,” said Zéfix, 29, who was hired by a beer brand to paint 12 buildings in a housing (see World Cup, page 4)

Continúa el vía crucis de migrantes centroamericanos por México Por Abel Astorga Morales Cual si se tratara de una eliminación sistematizada de cierto sector social (como sucedió en la Alemania Nazi y en otros momentos de la historia), en los últimos meses hemos advertido que algunos periodistas han llegado a llamar “genocidio centroamericano”, a la grave problemática del tránsito de migrantes de esta región de América por territorio mexicano. Problemática en la que en efecto las vejaciones, atropellos, e innumerables muertes y asesinatos, están a la orden del día. Evidentemente no se puede ser tan contundente con los calificativos, y más bien debemos de tratar con mesura el adjetivar, calificar u otorgar un concepto como el de “genocidio” a dichos eventos. No obstante, en lo que si han coincidido diversas voces, es en que el problema del éxodo de centroamericanos y su tránsito por México, entrañan una dificultad que se ha salido de las manos y que debe de ser atendida oportunamente. En bastantes ocasiones, en México solemos quejaros del maltrato del que en ocasiones son víctimas los migrantes nacionales a manos de la Patrulla Fronteriza y la sociedad estadounidense; y en gran medida bastante tiene de cierto; pero este maltrato se queda corto si lo comparamos con lo experimentado -y sufrido- por los migrantes centroamericanos a su paso por México. La vulnerabilidad es una característica propia de todo migrante ilegal; por ello la precariedad de recursos, la falta de protección legal y el desamparo, convierten a la migración centroamericana en una masa vulnerable; la cual a su paso por territorio mexicano se vuelve objeto de abusos y de todo tipo de violación a sus derechos humanos, tanto por parte de la sociedad, de particulares, bandas de delincuentes nacionales y extranjeros como los famosos maras, mafias de prostitución, las mismas autoridades e incluso los ataques de animales salvajes y ponzoñosos. Estamos hablando de asaltos, discriminación, violaciones sexuales, golpizas, secuestros, asesinatos, tráfico de órganos, trata de blancas, entre un sin número de agravios y vejaciones de que son víctimas estos migrantes al internarse en México e intentar llegar a Estados Unidos a bordo de La Bestia; ferrocarril en el que mediante múltiples conexiones, pueden viajar desde el estado de Chiapas hasta la frontera norte.

Revised Deadly Force Policies Unveiled FRONTERA NORTESUR

In one of his first actions as the new commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), R. Gil Kerlikowske has unveiled a revised use of force handbook for field agents. The updated handbook is based on recommendations and reviews of use of force practices by CBP officers that were conducted by the Department of Homeland Security’s Office of the Inspector General and the Police Executive Research Forum (PERF), a non-profit organization based in Washington, D.C. that studies policing and advises law enforcement agencies throughout the United States. The CBP’s emerging policies entail the use of force “only when necessary,” Kerlikowske said late last week in the nation’s capital. The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), which has been a leading critic of CBP use of force practices on both the southern and northern borders of the United States, noted

that the handbook as well as a relevant PERF report were made public because of community pressure and a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit filed by the civil liberties advocacy organization. Dissecting CBP’S use of force in 67 incidents, the PERF report had been withheld from public view ever since it was completed in February 2013. High on the list of changes recommended by the report’s authors were prohibiting officers from shooting at moving vehicles unless an agent’s life was in danger from deadly force “other than the vehicle,” as well as prohibiting officers from employing deadly force against a person “throwing objects not capable of causing serious physical injury or death” to the target. The PERF laid out different training and deployment strategies to cope with rockthrowing and vehicle flights in non-lethal ways. The ACLU attributes 28 deaths to lethal force incidents involving CBP personnel since

First-of-its-Kind Study Reveals Nexus of Key Manufacturing Industries on U.S.–Mexico Border

Report highlights area’s vital industry concentrations that have a competitive advantage in the global economy Results from a cross-border collaborative research effort studying employment and industries of the San Diego and Imperial counties as well as Baja California––which together make up the CaliBaja region––provides evidence of the region’s importance as a hub for manufacturing, with particular strengths in industry sectors like audio and video equipment manufacturing, and medical device and supplies manufacturing. The research initiative is detailed in the recently released “Jobs without Borders: Employment, Industry Concentrations, and Comparative Advantage in the CaliBaja Region,” a report published by the Center for U.S.-Mexican Studies at the University of California, San Diego’s School of International Relations and Pacific Studies, the Colegio de la Frontera Norte and the CaliBaja Mega-Region Initiative. This report, conducted by a team of experts from both sides of the border, is the first of its kind to analyze industryspecific employment concentrations within the cross-border region as a whole.

crossings every day. The “Jobs without Boarders” report calculated the total employment by industry for the combined economies of CaliBaja as a single region, and then compared the binational region’s employment concentrations to the larger U.S. and Mexican economies. These measurements help identify industries that are the most concentrated as well as those industries that are most export oriented. “Understanding the industry concentrations and comparative advantages of our regional economy is of central importance to ensuring long-term, sustainable economic growth,” said David Shirk, visiting professor of international relations at UC San Diego and a contributing author to the report. “As the United States and Mexico work to expand cross-border trade flows—now valued at over $500 billion—this study is designed to enhance competitiveness by providing unique insights into the core strengths of the binational economy along the U.S.-Mexico border.” By analyzing the most recent local, industry-specific employment data from 1990 to 2008 collected from the U.S. Department of Labor, Mexico’s National Institute for Statistics and Geography (INEGI) and Statistics Canada, the “Jobs without Borders” study help illustrate the strengths and diversity of the binational region’s sub-economies: the combination of hightech research and development capability in San Diego, agricultural production in Imperial Valley, and manufacturing in Baja California. The study identified 41 highly concentrated industries in CaliBaja that have strong capacity for export-oriented manufacturing, including audio and video equipment manufacturing, medical equipment and supplies manufacturing, hardware manufacturing, communications equipment manufacturing, and semi-conductor and electronic component manufacturing. In addition, it found that Baja California’s labor force is key to the strong manufacturing orientation of the region as a whole, since 58 percent of the region’s labor supply in highly concentrated industries came from Baja California. In the region’s top 10 industries’ employment concentration in 2008, Baja California supplied 74 percent of the labor force while San Diego and Imperial coun(see Border, page 4)

January 2010. Nine of the individuals who were killed had allegedly engaged in throwing rocks at CBP agents, the group said in a statement. Six persons-including three minorswere standing in Mexico when they were shot. ACLU spokespersons praised the revised policies as a step forward, but contended that transparency, accountability and oversight were necessary to ensure the success of the new rules. “Also, we hope that there will be more transparency in future use-of-force investigations and closure is still in need for family members of previous use of force incidents, such as in the cases of Sergio Adrian Hernandez Guereca, Anastacio Hernandez Rojas and Jose Antonio Elena Rodriguez,” said Vicky Gaubeca, director the ACLU of New Mexico’s Regional Center for Border Rights in Las Cruces. Ruthie Epstein,ACLU policy analyst in Washington D.C., added that it was important to outfit Border Patrol agents with

body-worn cameras that “will ensure an unbiased record and allow the agency and community to ensure that these new and improved policies are fully implemented in practice, as well as on paper.” Two unions representing CBP officers will have a strategic role in shaping the implementation of the new policies. As outlined by CBP Commissioner Kerlikowske’s office, the CBP’s changes include required extra training and mandating the carrying of “less-lethal devices” such as chemical agents and a tire deflation device. The new guidelines prohibit the use of Tasers on minors, and limit their applications in situations with adults. Among other measures, CBP is launching a comprehensive review of its basic training curriculum and purchasing “force training simulator systems” as a way of exposing officers to a more realistic, onthe-ground job training experience. Kerlikowske reiterated that he is committed to an “open

dialogue” between CBP and its stakeholders, adding that the new use of force handbook and the release of the PERF study is “a significant step in CBP’s continuing process.” The national bilingual daily La Opinion quoted an unnamed source at the Mexican Embassy who assessed the new CBP policies as an “additional step” toward accountability, but insisted that pending investigations into the use of force against Mexican nationals must come to a conclusion and determine “responsibilities and corresponding sanctions.” Although Border Patrol shootings have ruffled diplomatic feathers between Mexico City and Washington, the deadly incidents touching Mexican soil have not impaired relations or security cooperation between the two governments.

Obama administration declares surge at TX-Mexico border of unaccompanied minors a “humanitarian crisis”

Children detained at the Tex/Mex border. File Photo. LATINALISTA

Fleeing life-threatening violence, extreme poverty or just wanting to be with their parents are reasons cited as to why there has been a 90 percent increase over last year of children from Honduras, Guatemala, El Salvador and Mexico making the dangerous journey to the United States by themselves. While various immigrant advocates have been sounding the alarm over the past several years regarding the issue, it’s finally gotten the attention of Washington. It’s because the increase, happening mainly at the TexasMexico border in the Rio Grande Valley, is overwhelming local officials and has triggered recognition from the Obama administration that this influx of “unaccompanied alien children” is a humanitarian cri-

sis. To address the crisis, the President has created an “interagency Unified Coordination Group.” “(The purpose of the Unified Coordination Group) is to make sure we are maximizing coordination across the federal government in response to this humanitarian issue,” said Cecilia Muñoz, White House Director of Domestic Policy during a press call. The federal agencies involved include the U.S. Dept. of Homeland Security, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), and the Administration for Children and Families under the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The Defense Department is also being tapped to provide the housing for the children. Mark Greenberg, assistant secretary for the Administration for Children and Families,

said that barracks at San Antonio-based Lackland Air Force Base are prepared to house up to 1200 children, with 1,000 already in the facility that has been open for the past two weeks. A naval base will house 600 more children. Greenberg noted that a nonprofit, rather than military personnel, are responsible for operating the facility housing the children. Though children, at any age, are considered vulnerable, these new arrivals are seen to be even more so. “A greater percentage of children are younger than 13,” said Maria Woltjen, executive director and founder of the Young Center for Immigrant Children’s Rights. “And 40 percent are girls.” The number of unaccompanied minors is predicted to reach 60,000 this year.

Reportan mal uso de una buena a ley de inmigracián

En 2002, el Congreso de Estados Unidos creó la visa U para inmigrantes indocumentados que son víctimas de ciertos crímenes serios específicos. Los inmigrantes que califican que tiene al menos 21 años de edad también pueden solicitar visas para sus esposas e hijos. Quienes todavía no tienen los 21 años pueden solicitar a sus padres, esposas, hijos, y hermanos que no están casados y son menores de 18 años. La ley también permite que las personas que tienen visas temporales de no inmigrantes tales como estudiantes, turistas, y visitantes reciban las Visas U. Y, las víctimas de crímenes que se han ido de EE.UU. pueden solicitar una Visa U en sus países de origen si cumplen los requisitos bajo la ley. Los legisladores de EE.UU. crearon la Visa U para ayudar a oficiales de la ley y fiscales a encontrar y condenar a criminales violentos. Reconocieron que el temor a la deportación impedía que los inmigrantes indocumentados víctimas de crímenes los reportaran a la policía y que testificaran contra el criminal. A consecuencia de ello, los criminales violentos son capaces de evitar las condenas y continuar repetidamente lesionando y/o abusando de las inocentes víctimas. Proporcionarles visas a estas víctimas les permite adquirir estatus migratorio legal y autorización para trabajar. Diez Mil (10,000) Visas U están disponibles por año a

inmigrantes indocumentados que: 1. Han sufrido gran abuso físico o mental como víctimas de los crímenes listados; 2. Poseen información tocante al crimen; 3. Aceptan cooperar con la policía y fiscales para condenar al ó los criminales Algunos de los crímenes que califican para que las Visas U estén disponibles son: Violación, Violencia Doméstica, explotación Sexual, asalto Sexual, servidumbre involuntaria, Secuestro, restricción Criminal, Chantaje, Tortura, Incesto, Prostitución, Falso encarcelamiento, Perjurio y varias más. Los solicitantes de Visas U deben proveer una Carta de Certificación de la agencia de la ley que demuestre que el inmigrante es víctima de un crimen listado que califica y que él/ella está colaborando en la acusación. La Visa U otorga un estatus legal temporal por 3 años y le permita al inmigrante solicitar la residencia permanente (green card) y luego la ciudadanía de EE.UU. Cuando se usa apropiadamente, el programa Visa U provee muchos beneficios importantes para la sociedad Americana y para los inmigrantes víctimas de crímenes. ACUSACIONES Y RECLAMOS FALSOS DE LOS INMIGRANTES PONEN EN RIESGO EL PROGRAMA DE VISAS U Infortunadamente, los enormes beneficios concedidos a las personas que obtienen una

Visa U ha provocado una irresistible tentación para muchísimos inmigrantes indocumentados. Los reportes indican que se han hecho reclamos falsos a la Policía de crímenes y de ser víctima con la esperanza de obtener Visas U. Es un crimen hacer un falso reporte de policía. Lo más grave es que cuando las falsas acusaciones tienen éxito, las personas inocentes son condenadas de crímenes que no cometieron y frecuentemente son erróneamente enviados a la cárcel o prisión. Personalmente he visto dos ejemplos de falsa acusación. Un caso involucraba una falsa acusación de abuso sexual criminal y el otro una falsa acusación de violencia doméstica. En ambos casos, la investigación reveló finalmente que los cargos eran falsos. Las víctimas de las falsas acusaciones tuvieron que gastar miles de dólares defendiéndose de los falsos cargos y sufrieron una tensión emocional extrema al saber que estaban en riesgo de ir a la cárcel por algo que ellos no hicieron. Los reclamos y reportes falsos de crímenes hacen que la policía y los fiscales sospechen que aún las víctimas verdaderas y honestas mienten. ¡NO SE DEJE! El Lic.

part of this project. It’s hard to find projects that provide the commissions and the structure that they’re offering, as well as being an opportunity to promote our work,” added designer Ana K.

during the 1998 World Cup in France, when he used spray paint to color the street where he lived green and yellow. “Since then, I’ve taken part in all of the World Cups, painting the streets of the city,” Carraro said. “Now, I’m proud to have been included in the team of 70 artists working on this mural. We’re not just talented in soccer, but in the arts, as well.”

ties supplied 26 percent. “San Diego County, Imperial County and Baja California are better together,” said Shirk. “For example, the combined economy of the CaliBaja region accounted for nearly 40 percent of all employment in the audio and video equipment manufacturing sector in North America in 2008.” On average, the region employed 28.8 times more people—31,609 employees— in this industry compared to any other place in the U.S. or Mexico. “Looking at these two economies as one regional economy amplifies the impor-

tance of this sector within the CaliBaja region,” said Shirk. Meanwhile, medical equipment and supplies have grown to become the region’s largest manufacturing sector. In 2008, the medical equipment and supplies manufacturing industry employed the largest number of people for a total of 43,015 in the CaliBaja region and the Baja California economy supplied 87 percent of the labor for this sector. The “Jobs without Borders” report is a product of an ongoing collaborative research effort between the CaliBaja Mega-Region Initiative, the Center for U.S.-Mexican Studies and the Colegio de la Frontera Norte.

Si bien es cierto que el asunto migratorio es una de nuestras preocupaciones fundamentales, también lo es que, como a los demás ciudadanos de este país, nos importan los temas relacionados con la educación, la salud, la economía y el empleo, entre otros. Por eso es fundamental que nos involucremos, que participemos en los procesos electorales y votemos a conciencia. Y eso de votar a conciencia no podemos tomarlo tan a la ligera. Votar a conciencia es un acto que habla de nosotros mismos, que dice a las claras

quienes somos, si somos personas consecuentes y honestas o si actuamos llevados por impulsos, intereses o motivaciones pasajeros. Bien sabemos que son muchos los que quisieran tener el derecho a votar, más de doce millones de inmigrantes indocumentados siguen haciendo la fila de la esperanza, en espera de una reforma migratoria, así que si somos ciudadanos debemos hacer uso de nuestro derecho y actuar en consecuencia. Este año, en el mes de noviembre, tendrán lugar las elecciones legislativas en todo el país; así que está en nuestras manos determinar quién nos representará en las cámaras del congreso. Y volviendo a eso de votar a conciencia, debemos recordar que es indispensable, entonces, saber quiénes son los políticos que representan nuestro estado en cámara y senado, cómo lo han hecho, cuáles son los intereses que han defendido, a qué partido pertenecen. Debemos ocuparnos e indagar si es que no lo hemos hecho, sobre las posiciones de nuestros representantes y de aquellos quienes

Luisa Fernanda Montero se postulan para remplazarlos. ¿Cuáles son sus propuestas? ¿Cuál es su posición en lo que toca la reforma migratoria? Tenemos que estar informados, saber quiénes son afines a nuestra comunidad y conocer su hoja de vida. Cada estado tiene una fecha límite de inscripción, para conocerla podemos visitar la oficina electoral de nuestra localidad o ir a http://www.usa.gov donde encontraremos la información en inglés y en español. El voto latino puede ser nuevamente determinante; más de 23 millones de latinos son aptos para votar en Estados Unidos, sin embargo, muchos rechazan su derecho a elegir y se abstienen de acudir a las urnas. Y usted ¿ya está preparado? Las elecciones son en noviembre, recuerde que aún está a tiempo de preparar un voto consiente que lo haga sentir orgulloso de ser ciudadano; su voz puede ser escuchada a través de su voto, que es su derecho, pero también su deber.

Barrio Logan (con’t from page 1) ego and the residents of Barrio Logan.” But Barrio Logan residents like Beltran, have said they will continue to look out for the community, and it isn’t very likely they will ever agree with maritime industry leaders. “Residents of Barrio Logan will never compromise with the greedy, polluting maritime industry,” Beltran said. “We will demand more stringent restrictions on their polluting businesses. We will fight them because we have no choice. Our existence is at stake.” Christian Ramirez, an immigration activist who lives in Barrio Logan, said that the defeat of Propositions B and C thanks to support by the maritime industry and other business-leaders, is part of a long historical pattern of the establishment ignoring Barrio Logan residents. “Those who imposed the Coronado Bridge over the rubble of hundreds of demolished homes; those who left behind a community split in two with their super highway, those who cut down trees to saturate our community with junk-

Barrio Logan no se rinde, all the way to the bay.” Environmental Health Coalition, the organization behind the Yes on B & C Campaign, reassured Barrio Logan that they are not alone. “Barrio Logan has been through decades of abuse and discrimination, and we are dis-

mayed that the lies and misinformation of the corporation campaign were successful,” said EHC Executive Director Diane Takvorian. “Every neighborhood deserves a healthy and safe community, and Barrio Logan is no exception. The community’s goals, at the end of it all, will undoubtedly be triumphant, and we will work with City Council to ensure Barrio Logan gets the long overdue justice it deserves.” Beltran summed it up like this: “We fight for all those that have dared to stand up against the impossible. We may lose battles along the way but we will never give up the fight.”

The Last Indian Rebellion By Albert Simonson No sooner had the County of San Diego been formed than the sheriff came out here to collect taxes on property, including just about everything, cash, corn, carts, and cattle. To the mission educated Warner Ranch Indian, Antonio Garra, this was taxation without representation, a rallying cry from the birth of our nation [ours, not his]. He organized the famous 1850 “Garra Uprising” in the face of threats to seize Indian cattle for taxes. Indians had no voice in the new U.S. government or courts. They had enjoyed rights and protections under Spanish and Mexican law, without taxes. Now, the army was encamped at Santa Ysabel and volunteers had burned the Cupeno village at what we now call Warner’s Hot Springs. Nervous soldiers and militiamen tried in vain to interpret signal fires on surrounding hilltops. Things escalated into a widespread tax rebellion to force the non-Indian aliens out of the back country. In an attack on Warner’s ranch, the house was burned and four “Americans” were killed at Agua Caliente, the hot springs. Warner had kept a horse saddled and he fled to his vaqueros by Lake Henshaw’s Monkey Hill at the old Indian village of Tagui. Garra was caught and tried by court martial before liquor dispenser and militiaman Joshua Bean for treason, murder, and robbery. Bean was also the first San Diego mayor under the new U.S. government, conducting most city business across the bar of his grog shop. Army Major Justus McKinstrey, owner of Rancho Santa Ysabel, protested eloquently the treason charge, arguing

Old Town San Diego’s Campo Santo that Garra owed no allegiance to the new State of California, his enemy, and was properly a native prisoner of war, having defended his homeland from invaders. It was a sound argument, and so the court sentenced Garra to be shot only for murder and robbery, dropping the treason charge. In order to convict him of anything, they had to overlook the lack of any evidence of Garra’s direct participation. Right after sentencing, Garra was marched at the head of a firing squad to a grave you can still visit in Old Town San Diego’s Campo Santo, next to the entrance. Padre Juan was badgering the reluctant Garra into a prayalong, mumbling and bumbling his Latin, but the educated Garra helped him along with it. His skills with diverse Indian languages had made him a prime suspect for coordinating the rebellion. The January 7, 1852 Herald reported how Garra kneeled at the head of his grave, as a crowd looked on. Garra asked forgiveness for any misdeeds and granted forgiveness to the crowd. Townsfolk noted his dignity and composure, and it appears they did not enjoy the execution as much as usual. The pesky padre badgered him also to accept a blindfold. Garra finally relented, just to get it all

over with. They said he fell into his grave laughing, which may reflect a nightmarish collective sense of shame. The reporter wrote: “The sun’s last rays were lingering on Point Loma whilst bells of the neighboring church chimed vespers. In an instant the soul of a truly brave [man] winged to regions of eternity, accompanied by melancholy howling of dogs, aware of the solemnity, casting a gloom over the assembled hundreds. They failed not to drop a tear over the grave of a brave man.” Some months later, Cosmos, an Indian delivered up with a noose already around his neck, confessed to the killing and hanged himself from a peg in his cell wall. Mayor Bean started the new city government off corruptly by selling City Hall and public land to himself and a drinking buddy. He and the new city council pioneered graft with a bloated $5000 contract for a shoddily built cementless jail just to the right of the Campo Santo and with an arrangement for renting out jailed Indians for forced labor. He was killed that same year in an argument over a woman. A poor shoemaker was hanged for the crime before a different man confessed. (see Rebellion on page 8)

No real surprises, but a few disappointments with the elections

T

here were no real surprises with this week’s election. Once again, the power of incumbency proved to be an unbeatable asset despite the records of some of those elected officials. For example, although her peer judges had reprimanded Judge Schall three times, the last time for drunk driving, she won reelection easily. Bill Horn has a laundry list of transgression… and he won. And then DA Dumanis, it was anticipated that at least she would be forced into a runoff with her opponent but it was not to be, she won easily despite all the allegations of illegal campaign contributions and the appearance of a quid pro quo with a Mexican Tycoon. No surprises but plenty of disappointment! The biggest story or disappointment was the lack of voter participation, an unbelievably 20% or about 130,000 voters in the City of San Diego made the effort and took the time to vote. A shameful number, until one looks at Chula Vista where voters stayed home in record numbers. Out of the 115,000 voters in Chula Vista only 17,000 voters marked their ballots, or 15% of the registered voters. As Chula Vista’s Hispanic population is the majority demographic of that city, it is not much of a stretch to assume that the Hispanic community did not come out and vote. As already noted, many in the Hispanic community see the fact that Bonnie Dumanis was re-elected, as a big, big disappointment. No elected official has been a bigger detriment to the Hispanic community than DA Dumanis. From her special investigation of C.V City Councilman Steve Castaneda, her failure to charge the sheriffs in North County in the shootings of five Hispanic youths, and the politicization of the DA’s office. That disappointment becomes larger due to the Hispanic community not getting involved or voting. Unfortunately, we

have to assume that the Hispanic community evidently thinks the status quo is okay with them, and DA Dumanis. It is hard to consider the Prop B and C, the Barrio Logan Community plan, which was overturned, as a disappointment. Commercial, business and Republican support heavily outspent supporters of the community plan and the low voter turnout carried the day for them. What was really a disappointment in regards to the Barrio Logan Community Plan was that it even went to a citywide vote. The city-approved plan did not really change things other than to create a little buffer between the industries and residential homes. All of the businesses in the area were grandfathered in so in essences there were not going to be any loss of jobs. What it came down to was that the Republican Party and big businesses did not like it, and were going to defeat the small changes by taking the issue to the polls, defying residents and politicians that voted for it. What was surprising was that the supporters of Prop B and C were able to get their message out to 53,000 voters, or 40% of the voters who in the end supported the community plan. If the supporters of plan had half the money that industries spent, they could have gotten their message out to a much larger audience and the outcome would have obviously been different! In politics as with all elections, there are always winners, losers, and much disappointment. In this election the real losers was democracy, San Diego County, and the 80% of the voters who stayed home by allowing a small fraction of the community to decided their economic and political fate for them. The 80% who did not vote have lost their right to complain the next time something happens to their economic and political interests! The time to speak was last Tuesday by voting, 80% of the voters in SD County decided it just wasn’t important enough. Que lastima!

Un Solo San Diego Por Mayor Kevin L. Faulconer Durante mi campaña para alcalde, les asegure a los votantes que trabajaría para unir a nuestra ciudad. Me comprometí a forjar la idea de Un Solo San Diego, la cual garantiza acceso a vecindarios, bibliotecas y parques libres de peligro para todos. Con mi última revisión al presupuesto hemos agregado prioridades que pondrán esta visión en pie. En otras palabras, este presupuesto dará comienzo a un San Diego más equitativo en donde cada niño tendrá acceso a banquetas y calles de calidad y sin riesgos, sin importar si crecieron en San Ysidro, Otay Mesa, Barrio Logan, o cualquier otra parte de San Diego. Mi presupuesto Un Solo San Diego dirige más del 50% de nuestros ingresos de crecimiento del fondo general hacia proyectos de infraestructura y reparaciones para nuestros vecindarios, como banquetas y mejorías al alumbramiento publico en todas nuestras comunidades. Específicamente, 1.4 millones de dólares en mi presupuesto serán dedicados a añadir más luces en nuestras calles. Este presupuesto también asegura más seguridad pública en cada comunidad al alocar fondos para incrementar cuatro academias policiacas, tener más patrullaje e implementar cámaras de uniforme para crear más contabilidad entre el público y nuestros policías. También he propuesto gastar más fondos en equipo de protección y emergencia para los bomberos, además de millones de dólares en inversión para más academias de bomberos, una estación de bomberos temporal y un programa de respuesta rápida para el departamento de bomberos. Adicionalmente, mi presupuesto Un Solo San Diego se enfoca especialmente en varias mejorías en el Centro y Sur de San Diego. Esto incluye $2.4 millones de dólares en fondos para

banquetas en Old Otay Mesa Road, $600,000 para la mejoría del parque Silver Wing, $500,000 para empezar la expansión del Centro Paradise para Personas de la Tercera Edad en Barrio Logan, y $850,000 para empezar la construcción de la nueva estación de bomberos en Barrio Logan. Al enfocarnos específicamente en estos proyectos, este presupuesto tendrá la habilidad de empezar a cerrar la brecha en infraestructura y servicios públicos entre las diferentes comunidades. El cabildo ya ha aprobado dos propuestas claves en Un Solo San Diego que agregaran ayuda para asegurar que las comunidades con más necesidad reciban las mejorías que merecen. La primera redirigirá aproximadamente $11 millones de dólares en fondos federales del Departamento de Viviendas y Desarrolló Urbano de los Estados Unidos hacia mas alumbramiento público, banquetas, y estaciones de bomberos. La segunda propuesta mejorara los tiempos de respuesta de nuestros agentes de emergencia y agrega una ambulancia adicional a los vecindarios del Sur de San Diego, algo que ocupaba atención inmediata tras años de tener el peor servicio en la ciudad. Tenemos una gran oportunidad de unir a San Diego y garantizar que todas nuestras comunidades reciban los mismos beneficios. Estoy comprometido a reducir la separación entre las comunidades que se encuentran al sur de la carretera 8 y las que se encuentran al norte, y mi presupuesto Un Solo San Diego refleja eso. San Diego solo puede sobresalir cuando les preséntanos oportunidades para poder ser exitosos y prosperar a cada residente sin importar en que comunidad vivan. Es tiempo de darles enfoque a todas nuestras comunidades, ya que es la única manera de poder crear una ciudad de clase mundial, en la ciudad que consideramos nuestro hogar.

FIFA’s Brazilian failure By Dr. Sean W. Burges

But it is policy failures that dominate, with Brazilians loudly asking how their country can spend $20 billion on two mega sporting events but not ensure children can read or see a doctor when needed. Disquiet has turned to rage as costs have spiraled and the promised social benefits – better airports, working public transportation, sustainable and inclusive urban reform – have failed to materialise. While similar questions were heard before South Africa’s World Cup, the major difference in the Brazilian case is the thing which seems to make Valcke most uncomfortable: a large and growing middle class actively exercising its democratic rights. Valcke’s and FIFA’s problem is a failure to understand that democracy is not just a strong elected president. This is particularly important for understanding Brazil, which does not have the sort of single-member electoral districts found in Australia. Instead, federal deputies and senators are elected for wide geographic areas on a proportional basis from party lists. Voters have no idea who their ‘’representative’’ is and deputies and senators do not have to worry about answering to a specific set of constituents and are thus largely unaccountable. Fed up with being ignored by their politicians, the people are turning to the street to voice their frustration. Brazilians genuinely love soccer. Indeed, there is a deep love throughout the country of sport in general. There is also real pride that Brazil is hosting the World Cup and the 2016 Olympic Games as recognition of the enormous positive changes that have taken place throughout the country. But Brazilians are also deeply aware that their country is inexcusably failing to deliver basic services like education, health care and reliable public transportation to the vast majority of the population despite eye-wateringly high income taxes. Where, they ask, has their money gone? Has the government chosen stadiums overs schools and games over health care? Just a few months after the last whistle of the World Cup, Brazilians will go to the polls for a general election. The World Cup promises to be a thrilling test for the world’s best soccer players. It is already proving to be a crash course in democracy, one that FIFA and its Brazilian government allies are failing badly.

Major international sporting events like the World Cup are about far more than the thrilling competition between elite athletes. The megasporting event has become a sort of graduation ceremony for emerging market countries pioneered by the Olympic movement, most recently with Seoul in 1988 and Beijing in 2008. FIFA has recently jumped on this politicised train and even tried to steal a step on the International Olympic Committee, which selected Rio de Janeiro for the 2016 Summer Games. South Africa was given the 2010 World Cup as a clear sign that it had become a ‘’grown up’’ country and reliable partner, logic repeated in the decision to have a roaring Brazil host the tournament in 2014. While there is certainly much to celebrate in Brazil today, the story told by FIFA is quite narrow and reflects its commercialisation of soccer over the accessibility that makes the game so globally appealing. Compliance with FIFA’s business plan and provision of FIFA-approved infrastructure has proven the essential host nation criteria. Considerations of democratic governance and social inclusion are peripheral concerns that local police forces should sweep under the rug in the plush VIP stadium boxes. Directly responding to the Brazilian case, FIFA secretary general Jerome Valcke clarified his organisation’s view of democracy: ‘’Less democracy is sometimes better for organising a World Cup.’’ Casting further doubt on FIFA’s democratic understanding, he explained why he loved the 1978 World Cup in Argentina: ‘’[It] was a kind of reconciliation of the public, of the people of Argentina, with the system, the political system, the military system at the time.’’ These thoughts are extremely hard to reconcile with FIFA’s ‘’Fair Play’’ campaign or the human rights basis for its anti-racism rhetoric. Over 30,000 people were killed or ‘’disappeared’’ by the Argentine military government. While less violent, Brazil itself suffered 21 years of repressive military rule, including the torture of current president Dilma Rousseff. As crass and ill-considered as Valcke’s comments may be, they go a long way to explaining why the Brazilian people are loudly protesting the expense of their World Cup. Preparations for the event by the leftist Workers Party government have resulted in numerous in- Sean W.

Corrupción dentro de la FIFA Por Humberto Caspa, Ph.D.

Recordemos que Catar nunca se clasificó a un mundial ni es una potencia regional de futbol. Por si fuera poco, Catar se distingue por discriminar fehacientemente a las mujeres y viola abiertamente los derechos civiles de sus ciudadanos. Sin embargo, Catar fue elegido como el país organizador del Mundial de Futbol de 2022. Está claro que los billetes verdes y los regalos de Bin Hamman marcaron la diferencia. ¿Por qué las leyes tienen poco peso en el futbol? Jurídicamente la FIFA no es una Organización Internacional. Por tanto, las leyes internacionales no tienen jurisdicción sobre cualquier caso penal que ocurre dentro de esta institución. Las diversas federaciones de futbol, incluyendo a su organismo rector (FIFA), son básicamente organizaciones sin ánimo de lucro. Es decir, las leyes nacionales tienen jurisdicción sobre los diversos problemas o situaciones que se gestan dentro de estas federaciones. Empero, a diferencia de las otras organizaciones sin ánimo de lucro, la FIFA funciona como si fuera una organización internacional. Tiene sus propias reglas de juego. Su presidente y sus funcionarios se sienten como los amos del universo del futbol. Nadie los toca y nadie los controla. Se ríen a carcajadas cuando los acusan por corrupción debido a que estos dirigentes saben que sus delitos se pierden en la palabrería. Al final, no existe un ordenamiento jurídico claro, ni en los estados ni en el ámbito internacional, que los haga pagar por sus pecados materiales.

¿Por qué algunos dirigentes de la FIFA no son enjuiciados y condenados por sus acciones corruptas como cualquier delincuente común y corriente? La reciente denuncia y acusación de la revista británica Sunday Times contra dirigentes de la FIFA por agravios cometidos durante la licitación de la sede los mundiales de 2018 y 2022 no es cosa del otro mundo. La corrupción es el pan de cada día dentro de una organización que no tiene controles y balances, ni mucho menos un órgano jurídico independiente que sentencie a sus líderes, incluyendo a sus presidentes. Joao Havelange, quien por muchos años fue el mandamás de la FIFA, recibió un sin número de “regalos” durante su administración. Actualmente es investigado en las cortes suizas por haber recibido de 1.5 millones de francos suizos (aproximadamente 1.700.000 dólares) de la agencia de mercadotecnia ISL entre 1992 y 1997. Hoy esta empresa no existe porque entró en bancarrota. Otro de sus colaboradores cercanos, Ricardo Texeira, entonces presidente de la Federación Brasileña de Futbol, recibió una cantidad más alta de esta misma agencia; alrededor de 12.74 millones de francos suizos (aproximadamente 14,200.000 dólares). De acuerdo a Sunday Times, un dirigente del fútbol de Catar y ex miembro del comité ejecutivo de la FIFA, Mohamed Bin Hamman, “invirtió” más de 5,000.000 de dólares para lograr el apoyo de dirigentes de diversas federaciones regionales para que apoyen la Humberto Caspa, Ph.D., es profesor e candidatura de Catar para la organización del investigador de Economics On The Move.

Commentary/Opinion Page

“Patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel” Time for a Latino President By Rodolfo F. Acuña James Boswell in The Life of Samuel Johnson, LL.D. (1791) writes that Samuel Johnson made his famous adage that “patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel” on the evening of April 7, 1775. Without knowing the context of the statement we have repeated the saying millions of times. It caught a nerve, and rarely in our history has an aphorism carried so much meaning. It is a cliché that when we hear it, we nod to and smile knowingly hardly pausing to think. However, during the Memorial Day Weekend (that is really this weekend and not last), I happened to see a rogues’ gallery of politicians who avoided military service sitting laden with twelve pound flag pins. The blasphemy made me think about the Johnson quote. More than that I thought about how our lives have become one big aphorism with us repeating sayings without knowing or really understanding what they mean. In parroting sayings we eliminate the necessity to understand. A gross example is Dick Cheney’s avoiding the draft five times and later advocating that others fight the Afghanistan and Iraq wars; his calling others weak because they won’t send ground troops into every region of the world. With this context, Johnson’s words take on a special meaning. In order to understand why an event or action or a remark occurred we must understand the context. The circumstances have to be provided as to why it happened. While we don’t really know what was on Johnson’s mind or anyone’s mind we should form a context so we can better understand what he or she may have been thinking. In not processing aphorisms we become parrots. The selfish motives of an undesirable person are lost. Does the person have a history of careerist and opportunist behavior? Is the person feathering his or her own nest? As we speak, the image of the politician has already come into our minds as the most obvious sinner. However, if the image becomes an aphorism that is repeated without understanding the context for the behavior is missed. Thus like everything else in America it comes down to what we want to believe. Fortunately, in recent years more people have become aware of the contradictions of patriotism, and they have a more sophisticated view of war; aphorisms such as “my country right or wrong” or we are fighting for democracy are less frequent. A growing number have gone beyond Ronald Reagan’s evil empire first applied to the Soviet Union in 1983. A larger number reject the white hats versus the black hats view of the world. For the most part, Americans do not think in terms of negations, which is simply the act or process of negating. Americans do not look to negate contradictions. They fail to consider a formal argument to learn what is actually true. In thinking about patriotism, I began consider nationalism. For many years, nationalism that is associated with nations has been considered bad whereas nationalism that fans ethnic pride or nationalism among Latinos, Native Americans, African Americans and Asian Americans is okay. Like patriotism scoundrels or even well intentioned minority leaders use it to their advantage. Recently I was reminded of strength of nationalism by the nomination of San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro to be the secretary of HUD (Department of Housing and Urban Development). Hardly had the nomination been made before the drums began beating for a Latino President with most forgetting that Castro is only 39 years old and his resume is as thin as Barack Obama’s whose notoriety was based on a sole convention speech. This is not unique and the hype reminds me of the euphoria among many Angelinos for a Latino mayor. As in the case of patriotism, this feeling of

entitlement to become president is based on nationalism. The problem is that without context the expectations are based more on identity than a quest for self-determination. And it raises the danger that a lack of context will lead to the selection of a scoundrel such as a Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz or a Raúl Labrador. All that I have heard about Castro and his family is good but his resume is at this point thin and a lack of seasoning could undermine his potential greatness. Experience is not the only factor nor is Castro’s case unique. Hilary Clinton is being hyped as the first woman president – she certainly has an extensive resume. However, the more I scrutinize the context the less inclined I am to support her. Like John McCain, she never seems to see a war that she doesn’t like. There is no doubt that nationalism played a role in building of a Chicana/o Movement, and it plays a role in unifying and keeping Latinos focused on solving contradictions. However, there are abuses and pitfalls that contribute to conflict with other nationalities and encourage the rise of scoundrels. On the negative side in the white, Latino, African American and other communities’ politicos are often shielded and nationalism perpetuates a gang mentality. Often the criticism as in the case of Miguel Estrada’s nomination to the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit is valid. However, in that case some Hondurans wanted a free pass because he was Honduran, although ideologically he was incompatible with the interests of the Latino community. The opposition to Estrada was not because he was Honduran but because of his record. Recently there was fallout with two Salvadoran Central American Studies professors over the UNAM (The National Autonomous University of Mexico) deal not because the professors were Salvadoran but because they were going against the interests of students. Like Johnson’s scoundrel they tried to divert attention away from the context, e.g., diversity, the academic precedent set by the unilateral establishment of a center that potentially threatens Chicana/o studies, and the gross violations of the governance process. They ignored the fact that the administration opposed the foundation of Central American Studies, which was founded after Chicana/o studies gave up three tenure track positions to establish CAS. Forgetting this, the two muertos de hambre distorted as an attack on CAS. This same tactic was used by supporters of the North American Free Trade Agreement in the early 1990s. The issues were similar to those of the UNAM deal and it promoted the neoliberal agenda of the United States and Mexico’s super-rich. During NAFTA debate I was involved with my suit against the University of California Santa Barbara. However, I got urgent calls from some Anglo friends who asked me to actively join the fight against NAFTA. They were getting baited as anti-Mexican by Mexican and Chicana/o politicos. I recognized that the issue was important and the charges absurd. Today I continue to criticize Mexico and intensely dislike Enrique Peña Nieto not because he is Mexican but because he is a crony of the United States and is selling the Mexican peoples’ national patrimony and natural resources. On several occasions I have been asked by Mexican functionaries to accept awards, which I have refused just like I have not put in for a Fulbright. It is all a matter of context. I choose to align myself with progressive causes because we live in a society. When I do not take a stand it puts pressure on nonMexican friends, and it is too easy for the scoundrels to red bait them. As long as progressive Mexicans and Latinos are part of the criticism, it is difficult for others to use Mexican Americans to label the criticism anti-Chicana/o or anti-Mexican. The truth be told, some of the criticism of Chicana/o politicos is valid and we must put it into context.

World Cup Games, Brazil, has a greater impact beyond the games! By Berenice Taboada Díaz Nelson Mandela made a claim that “the World Cup [would] help unify people and if there is one thing in this planet that has the power to bind people, it’s soccer”. It has happened in other countries. South Africa and Germany know about it. During the World Cup, hosts cities go into debt and start a “social clean up”, prostitution and inequality raise, and political harassments are hidden behind “the joy of the Cup.” Brazilian cities are not an exception to the rule. In this country, those same roads that 10 years ago celebrated the Workers’ Party´s arrival to the government and shared their economic and political achievements, these days reflect rebellion, nonconformity and rage through several protests. Brazilians know that the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil implies high social, economic, political and even housing effects to the cities that will host the games. Economically, according to O Estado de Sao Paulo journal, Brazil’s original 2014 World Cup soccer stadiums budget jumped 42.9% to 8.0bn reais (US$3.61bn) because of a lack of detailed engineering plans, building overvaluation, fraud and allegations of corruption that, as a consequence, the resignation of Ricardo Teixeira, the head of Brazil’s football federation, who led it for 23 years. This corruption scandal coupled to the one at Petrobas —in 2006 the state-controlled oil company paid a total $1.3bn for a Texas refinery that had been bought by its seller for only $42.5m a year before— are clearly crying out for a credibility shock. But this kind of International games cost more than just money. According to the National Coordination of Popular Committees for the World Cup, the Brazilian movement protesting against the negative impact of the event in the economic and social context of the country, at least 250.000 people were evicted from their houses to ‘make space’ for new buildings. This mass relocation of Brazilian families out of slums, together with the lack of information and prior notification about it, forced demolitions and low compensations for the land, opens the unknown about if it was really

necessary to relocate these people or if it was an explicit goal of expelling the lower classes outside the city centers. On the other hand, living cost in the 12 host cities has changed in these last two years. Average prices of food, transportation, utilities, groceries and rents have increased, even though the minimum wage stays stuck in 700 reais (about 300 dollars). The current inflation rate is already at 6.19% but specialists think it will increase after the arrival of 600,000 foreign visitors for the international soccer tournament. Possible reaction to this situation was noticed by the national government and they started acting accordingly. They have increased the police and army presence in the streets, especially into the slums, such as Complexo da Maré. In addition, there are some local governments, such as Rio de Janeiro, that are closing yearly festivals in order to prevent possible social reactions. And soccer celebrities such as Pele, have asked Brazilians “to put problems behind” and keep the protests for a later time. Yet, street protests still continue and have taken different forms. In several cities, many young assumed a mode called “rolezinho” which is the massive occupation of luxury shoppings. Some, like the Brazil’s Landless Workers Movement and Homeless Workers Movement, camp around the stadiums to stop the deaths of workers in the construction of stadiums, which recently rose to 8 fatalities. And in other cases, people simply express their discontent in the streets, in attempt of demanding the increase of government effort and funds to improve other key services, in public transport and national housing investment and protesting government expenditures on the international soccer tournament. For them, is wasteful spending on stadiums as public services languish. “We want FIFA-standard hospitals too”, was a common protest slogan. 35 days before the tournament opens and facing a wave of protests, the Brazilian president visited the Corinthians Stadium Arena, which will host the opening match of the World Cup Brazil 2014 on 12 June, but did not comment on the death of two workers during the building and 2,000 families who where claiming access to housing outside the place.

Veteranos (con’t de página 2) Hablar de “genocidio” pues, quizá sea algo desmesurado. No obstante, son bastantes los ejemplos en los que los partidarios de este concepto se han amparado. Por ejemplo, tan sólo a finales de agosto del 2010 se informaba en los medios de la masacre acontecida en el municipio de San Fernando, Tamaulipas, donde fueron encontrados los cuerpos de 72 migrantes centro y suramericanos, que habían sido secuestrados por pistoleros cuando pretendían cruzar hacia Estados Unidos (El Universal, 2010). También, el día 27 de junio del 2012 un noticiero televisivo informaba del secuestro de 100 migrantes en Medias Aguas, Veracruz; la mayoría de ellos hondureños y guatemaltecos. Y más recientemente, las Fuerzas federales y estatales rescataron a 61 migrantes que se encontraban secuestrados en Reynosa, Tamaulipas. En esa ocasión la Secretaría de Gobernación informó que los rescatados en su mayoría provenían de Centroamérica, y se encontraban encerrados en una casa de seguridad ubicada en la colonia Sierra de la Soledad de esa ciudad, tras haber sido plagiados en las inmediaciones de la Central de Autobuses, mercados y paraderos de transporte público de Reynosa (Proceso, 27/02/2014). Sin duda alguna, México -con la entidad tamaulipeca a la cabeza- se ha convertido en un verdadero desencanto para el migrante centroamericano, y en un calvario para las madres de estos que desde hace años se han organizado para buscar a sus hijos. Lamentablemente, muchos de ellos jamás serán encontrados, pues sus restos se encuentran hacinados en fosas comunes que, por gran parte del país, tienen los huesos de cientos de personas que por su situación de clandestinidad jamás lograron ser identificadas. Evidentemente hay muchas cosas por resolver en la política migratoria del Instituto Nacional de Migración (INM), entre ellas, la regulación y normatividad de la política migratoria, y la atención a los migrantes en tránsito por México. Pero aunque las autoridades mexicanas aún tienen tareas pendientes, es de reconocer que en los últimos años la problemática migratoria y sus múltiples facetas han alcanzado un punto álgido como tema de discusión y tarea a resolver. Así lo atestiguó la realización del foro “Migración con rostro humano: hacia el fortalecimiento institucional”, que tuvo lugar en el Senado de la República el día 11 de febrero de este año. En dicho foro se reconoció que el INM requiere cambios de operación y que se necesita incorporar en mayor medida a la sociedad civil, pues los albergues y casas del migrante, no pueden atender por si solas a estos migrantes. Ahora toca esperar que las diversas propuestas de académicos y autoridades mexicanas en este y otros foros no queden sólo en una bella idea, y que en realidad se lleven a la práctica. Con ello se abriría la posibilidad de poder aminorar la triste realidad de los migrantes centroamericanos en tránsito por México.

Rebellion (con’t from page 5)

Executions needed to be expedited, because jail space was limited and there were over 800 California homicides a year, not counting undocumented Indian, Mexican and Chilean miners, who either fled the goldfields or bled upon them. Mayor Bean’s rascally brother Roy was soon jailed in Old Town for intent to commit murder on a fleeing victim. He had a number of lady admirers and one brought him a nice homey meal of tamales, one of which had a small knife in it. Roy Bean used that knife to dig himself through that infamous cobblestone jail’s wall and ended up in Texas where he nominated himself the infamous “Law West of the Pecos” in his saloon/courthouse. A photo of the pompous signage atop his “groggery” is an icon of old west lore. He misspelled it “The Jersey Lilly” for a celebrity beauty of variable virtue immortalized in a BBC series. An amorous situation concerning another lady got him incompletely hanged. He was left alone to twitch and gurgle, but the lady emerged from behind a bush and cut him down, leaving him with a bad case of rope burn and neck pain, which did no good to his personality. People called him the “hanging judge”, but he was as much hangee as hangor. I swear I am not making any of this up. I have actually had to leave out a bunch of really crazy stuff for fear young readers might lose some respect for our hallowed American legal traditions. You can google more about these people, if you have nothing better to do.

FAMILY FEATURES

Y

ou can turn any summer day into a special occasion with a cool ice cream treat. From classic favorites to innovative new flavors, it only takes a scoop or two to bring out plenty of smiles. For kids, summertime is about chilling out, and there’s no better way to enjoy this slowed down pace than with a refreshing, frosty treat. Celebrate birthday parties, holiday gatherings or days that end in “y” with special ice cream concoctions that are destined to create sweet memories.

Celebrate summer Grab a spoon and dig into these scrumptious recipes, featuring delicious Blue Bunny ice cream flavors. These treats make it easy for everyone to customize to their own sweet preference, whether it’s pairing creamy Blue Bunny ice cream with the gooey goodness of freshly-baked chocolate cake, the buttery finish of a flaky pie crust or in a classic, richly adorned parfait. For other great ideas to cool down your summer days and nights, visit www.BlueBunny.com.

Ice Cream Cupcakes Yield: 18 to 20 cupcakes Cupcake liners 1 1/8 cups all-purpose flour 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder 1 teaspoon baking soda 1 teaspoon salt 1/2 cup butter, softened 1 cup white sugar 1 egg 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1 cup brewed coffee 1 container Blue Bunny Caramel Fudge Brownie Sundae, Vanilla or your favorite Blue Bunny flavor Decorations (such as sprinkles, cupcake skewers, cherries) To make cupcakes, preheat oven to 350°F. Place cupcake liners in cupcake pan. Sift together flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt. Set aside. In medium bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla and beat well. Add flour mixture, alternating with coffee. Beat until just incorporated. Fill cupcake liners about 1/3 full to allow for ice cream. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out clean. Let cupcakes cool. Using round ice cream scoop, scoop out rounds of ice cream and set on baking sheet in freezer. Once ice cream scoops are frozen, carefully place one into each cupcake and top with fun decorations. Note: Though the recipe calls for brewed coffee, the cupcakes won’t take on its strong flavor.

Peanut Butter Sundae Parfaits

Layer Up with a Topping Station The sky’s the limit when it comes to the finishing touches of your favorite ice cream treats. Whether you’re indulging in a decadent parfait or simply dishing out a couple of scoops, it’s easy to get everyone involved in a topping soiree. A topping station is the perfect activity for birthday parties or other kid-oriented summer celebrations. Just make sure the station is easily accessible — at their level — and place each topping in its own special bowl or serving dish along with a spoon. Also, be sure to label each topping in case anyone has a food allergy, especially when serving nuts and fruits. The little ones will have a blast mixing different tastes for the perfect sweet combination. Here are some tasty topping ideas to take your ice cream topping bar to a whole new level: 

Colorful sprinkles



Maraschino cherries



Icing



Mini chocolate chips



Gummy bears



Chocolate candies



Strawberry slices



Pineapple chunks



Banana chunks



Chopped pecans, peanuts or almonds



Crushed cookies



Crushed mint candies



Fruit preserves



Whipped cream



Hot fudge or caramel

Yield: 10 to 12 sundae parfaits 6 waffle or sugar cones Chocolate cake or brownies Chocolate chip cookies Blue Bunny Peanut Butter Panic Ice Cream Maraschino cherries, sprinkles or cupcake pompom topper for garnish Break up waffle cones, chocolate cake or brownies and chocolate chip cookies into bite-size pieces and place in individual containers or cupcake cups. Or use favorite cake or cookie flavors to customize. Layer ice cream, waffle cone pieces, cake pieces and cookie pieces into mini parfait glasses, or any small glass or bowl. Garnish with Maraschino cherry, sprinkles or cupcake pompom topper. Tip: Other fun mix-in ideas include pretzels, chocolate candies, marshmallows, graham crackers, fudge sauce or caramel sauce.

Mini Ice Cream Pies Yield: 10 mini pies 2 round pie crusts, thawed 1 3 1/2-inch round cookie cutter 10 2- to 3-inch scalloped tart shells 3 cups chocolate chips Blue Bunny Bunny Tracks Ice Cream 1/2 cup chopped peanuts Preheat oven to 425°F. Roll out round pie crusts and use round 3 1/2-inch cookie cutter to cut out circles from pie dough. Round cookie cutter should be slightly larger than top of tart shell. Cut out 5 rounds from each pie crust. Grease tart shells and place pie dough rounds down into tart shells, carefully pressing dough into scalloped edges and bottom of tart shell. Pierce bottom of tart shell with fork to prevent it from baking too high. Bake tartlet shells for 8 to 9 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven and allow to cool before flipping out onto work surface. Melt chocolate chips in microwave-safe bowl or double broiler. Carefully dip scalloped edges of tart shells into chocolate and flip over to let cool. Scoop mini balls of ice cream into shells. Top with drizzle of warm, melted chocolate chips and garnish with chopped peanuts.
