Eliseo Medina, Who Reshaped Labor and Immigrant Rights Movements, Retires from SEIU By Randy Shaw BEYOND CHRON

Monday (Sept 30) was Eliseo Medina’s last day as the SecretaryTreasurer of SEIU International. Medina is retiring from his job, though not from immigrant rights activism, after nearly fifty years working for social change. Medina helped expand Latino union membership, and increased Latino voting and political empowerment. He secured SEIU resources to implement Latino voter outreach strategies that effectively changed the course of national politics, and played a leading role in broadening a network of immigrant rights groups into a national labor and church-backed movement. Medina’s activism began in 1965 at age 19 as an organizer with Cesar Chavez and the UFW. He was trained by the legendary Fred Ross Sr., who also mentored Chavez. Seen by many as Chavez’s successor, Medina abruptly left the UFW in 1978 over concern with the group’s direction. His departure began a mass exodus of the UFW’s key organizing talent, whose future endeavors became the subject of my previous book, Beyond the Fields. Medina’s legacy has parallels to Chavez, whose later failures left some to wrongly downplay his historic achievements. In Medina’s case, his support for SEIU President Andy Stern’s takeover of the Californiabased SEIU-UHW in 2009 and his refusal to publicly oppose Stern’s attempted seizure of UNITE HERE also that year alienated some of his former admirers into adversaries. Yet as with Cesar Chavez, Eliseo Medina’s rich life must be evaluated over the course of his career. Medina is among the most influential social change activists of his time, and his story should be known. In today’s United States, labor unions and Latino voters are two key pillars of progressive politics. Yet when Eliseo Medina worked for the UFW from 1965-1978, the situation was very different. The UFW was the only union that prioritized grassroots electoral outreach, and among the few groups focused on registering Latino voters and getting them out the vote. Medina would play a key role in expanding this UFW model nationally, and through the broader labor movement. Reshaping the Labor Movement Historically, organized labor was a powerful opponent of immigrant rights. The predominately white movement saw Latino immigrants as threatening their jobs, and—strange as it sounds now—there was a prevailing wisdom that Latinos would not support unions.

Cirilo Flores: First bishop of Mexican origin in San Diego By Pablo J. Sáinz San Diego has a new Roman Catholic bishop, and he’s the first one of Mexican origin. Cirilo Flores became the fifth bishop of the Diocese of San Diego on September 18th, after the resignation of Bishop Robert Brom. Brom, who had been bishop since 1990, submitted his resignation after reaching the age of 75, at which Church law directs bishops to submit their resignation. Flores becomes bishop of a diocese of almost one million people. Before him, Gilbert Chavez had been coadjutor bishop in San Diego, but this is the first time that a man of Mexican origin has become the official bishop. In a statement issued on his first day as bishop, Flores, who came to San Diego early last year as coadjutor bishop, called for believers to pray for him. “Now, as the chief shepherd of the local church, I will count on and rely on your continuing collaboration, generosity, counsel, and, especially, prayer,” he said. Flores said that he will put special emphasis on several issues, especially those having to do with charity, and evangelization, echoing Pope Francis.

“As we continue on our journey of faith as the Diocese of San Diego, may we never lose sight of our Lord’s call to care for the poor,” Flores said. “The work of faith formation must continue to be a key effort throughout our diocese. Our efforts must be strengthened as we form the next generations of faithful Catholics even as we emphasize anew the need for adult faith education and formation.” And when Catholics are leaving the Church in alarming rates, Flores said that the diocese needs to encourage young people to learn more about their faith. He said there’s a “need to minister in special ways to the youth and the young adults of our diocese. Whatever our age, we must all strive to strengthen our own faith so that we can better witness to the love, the mercy, and the truth found in Jesus Christ.” Flores called his predecessor, Bishop Brom “an excellent teacher,” who will continue his work at the diocese. “I have requested that he make himself available to parish groups for presentations regarding discipleship and evangelization,” Flores said. Bishop Cirilo Flores was born in Bishop Cirilo Flores

Immigration Advocates to Show Up All Over For Oct. 5 Showdown By Juniper Rose HISPANIC LINK NEWS SERVICE

WASHINGTON, D.C. — A showdown between immigration reform advocates and reactionary hardliners in the U.S. House of Representatives may be finally at hand. Buoyed by months of grassroots pro-immigrant lobbying and skillful strategizing led by U.S. Rep. Luis Gutiérrez of Illinois, some 80 major coordinated rallies mixing progressive and moderate supporters will be staged throughout the nation on Saturday, Oct. 5. Participants in these and countless community events will demand that the House, where Republicans prevail over Democrats 233-200, votes to accept a path to citizenship for a pool of some 11 million undocumented immigrants now residing in this country. About 60 percent of them are Hispanic. The Oct. 5 “National Day for Dignity and Respect” event, referred to as “La Gran Marcha por la Libertad y Respeto” in Spanish, will wind up at the Capitol steps. Three months ago the Senate, where Democratic members hold a 56-42 sway, passed by a two-to-one margin SB744, legislation that includes a 13-year “path to citizenship” provision. Projections are that, weighing attendant costs, restrictions and other factors, projections are more than half would go the route. There is sufficient support in the House to pass a bipartisan bill that ultimately offers citizenship if Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) allows a vote, Gutiérrez maintains. With an average of more than 1,100

Some say stop the deportations, others say (sealing) the border is the most important focus. On Oct. 5 we will all be united.” If Republicans decline to accept

the proposal, they must bring their own proposition to the table to keep the issue moving forward, he insists. “We’re not going away. The deportations continue and they continue to have a devastating effect. There are more than 4 million American-citizen children who have parents that are undocumented. Once they are deported, they are gone.” Yves Gomes, a U.S. citizen whose

Why Aren’t More Youth Applying for DACA? By Nancy Lopez SOUTH KERN SOL

Nearly fifteen months after the Obama administration announced Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), approximately half of all eligible immigrants in California have yet to apply. The program offers temporary legal status to qualifying undocumented immigrants who entered the country at or before age 16, and who have lived in the United States continuously since 2007. According to the Migration Policy Institute (MPI) there are approximately 300,000 individuals who meet DACA’s age, educational, and other eligibility criteria in California. Just under half of those had applied as of June 2013, according to MPI. Can’t cover the cost Although the application fee of $465 has been attainable for many individuals, in part given the employment opportunities that can open up once one receives a legal work permit, many immigrant families don’t earn enough to afford the fee. It took over a year of saving for Martha Lopez, 18, a recent high school graduate living in Bakersfield, took be able to send in her DACA application. “I couldn’t afford [to apply] because I didn’t have a good paying job. [I was getting paid] between $7 and $16 a day, so it was hard for me to pay the $465,” said Lopez. “I was going to school and working about 12 hours per week, so money was very short. I had to pay for tuition, room and board, school supplies, transportation, food, bills and other expenses.” Another DACA-eligible immigrant living in Bakersfield, a 29-year-old who wished to only give her last name, Gonzalez, due to her undocumented status, shared a story similar to Lopez’s. “I didn’t have the money, since my partner is the only one that works, and that money is to support our family,” said Gonzalez, who waited several months while gathering the money for the application fee. While Lopez and Gonzalez were eventually able to save enough money to apply for DACA, that hasn’t been the case for one young immigrant in Fresno, who also offered only her last name, Gutierrez. Gutierrez began the DACA application process, only to have it halted because her

New, Old Grievances Rile Border Residents By Kent Paterson FRONTERA NORTESUR

On Sundays, the Benito Juarez Monument in the Mexican border city of Ciudad Juarez is a popular community gathering spot of goods, services, culture and ideas. Strolling couples, fun-seeking families, brawny bikers, longhaired rockers, and old farm hands known as braceros- a cross-section of border and Juarez society- mill about food stands, leather goods and a popular tianguis. A rock band tunes up, while Aztec healers beat hand-held drums and chant into the wind. Floating from person-to-person, a tall woman raffles off a guitar and peddles small plastic packets of pecans. On a recent day, members of Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador’s National Movement for the Regeneration of Mexico party (Morena) added a political edge to the ambiance. The activists passed out literature, signed up new members and stringed rows of posters across the base of the monument to Mexico’s most revered president that assailed the policies of Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto and his packet of labor, education, energy and tax reforms. The reforms, overlaid by ongoing gasoline price increases, go against popular and national interests, contended Jesus Zamaron, secretary for the executive committee of Morena’s Chihuahua state branch. The energy reform will favor a tendency of “privatizing Mexico’s

oil,” while tax increases will attack “the stability of all economic sectors of Mexico,” Zamaron insisted. “These are not focused on supporting the problems of the people of Mexico.” Especially troublesome to border residents, Zamaron added, is the president’s proposal to harmonize the sales tax in the border region from the current 11 percent rate with the national one of 16 percent. “There is going to be an outflow of consumers to the neighboring country,” Zamaron predicted, pointing to the ability of many residents of Ciudad Juarez and other Mexican border cities to shop in adjacent U.S. sister cities like El Paso, where sales taxes are much lower. Zamaron and Morena are far from alone in their opposition to one or more aspects of Pena Nieto’s reform portfolio. Tens of thousands of teachers across the nation continue raising hell about an education reform- now codified into lawthat they assert violates their labor rights and encourages the privatization of public schools. On another front, the Citizen Movement party announced the kick- off of a petition campaign in Ciudad Juarez this past weekend against both the pending energy and tax reforms. To the right of Morena and the Citizen Movement, border business sectors and the conservative National Action Party (PAN) are also heaping criticism on the looming tax reform,

which raises some taxes but lowers others. The Pena Nieto administration defends the tax reform as a vital step in moving the nation forward by generating the revenues needed to create a universal social security system and provide unemployment benefits to jobless workers. “Every Mexican will have (social security), this right that our Constitution grants, as we desire,” Pena Nieto declared this month. In an op-ed published in El Diario de Juarez, PAN Senator Javier Corral of Chihuahua concurred with the goals of expanding social security and unemployment coverage, but criticized the tax reform as insufficient without changes in government spending practices, transparency and accountability. Mexican society, Corral contended, does not trust its pesos in the hands of government officials. “No proposals exist that guarantee the citizens will know how the government spends taxes from labor, profits, property and services..,” Corral wrote. “If the government of President Pena Nieto wants to convince Congress and the productive sectors of the necessity, not just the goodness of the tax reform, it has to show proven examples of rational spending, as well as efficient anti-corruption, transparency and spending controls.” Although opposition to the tax, energy and education reforms is mounting, PAN Con-

gressman Carlos Angulo Parra predicted the president’s tax legislation will pass the Congress even with rejection of the PAN and parties to its left. Quoted in Ciudad Juarez’s Norte daily, Parra said a legislative head count showed Pena Nieto’s plan squeaking by with the support of the president’s PRI party and the swing votes of two smaller parties- the Mexican Green Party and the National Alliance Party, the latter grouping founded by the imprisoned ex-head of the national teachers’ union, Elba Esther Gordillo. After months of speculation-and a negative reception in public opinion-an expected government move to tax food and medicine did not make the final cut of Pena Nieto’s tax legislation. Lopez Obrador had been one of the more vociferous critics of any attempt to tax the two necessities. Back at the Benito Juarez Monument, Miguel Angel Roque Guillen said he was among many Mexicans struggling with food and healthcare. The elderly man, standing upright with a determined look, spoke about another grievance that goes back decades. As a young man, Roque was a bracero, a farmworker seasonally contracted to work in the United States. For four years in the 1950s, Roque worked cotton in New Mexico and Texas, sugar beets in Montana and cucumbers in Colorado. After concluding his service as a bracero, Roque returned to farming in the

northern Mexican state of Durango before eventually moving to Ciudad Juarez about 15 years ago. In the bracero years, Roque said, 10 percent of his paycheck was withheld for retirement purposes in Mexico. But Roque, like thousands of other ex-braceros, was not paid the money in a timely fashion. During the Calderon administration which ended last year, Roque was among exbraceros that received a 38,000 peso payment (approximately $3,000) for the 10 percent withholding, which reports later indicated wound up in the Mexican government’s old rural bank, Banrural, before disappearing down a financial rabbit hole somewhere. Roque said food and other basic expenses gobbled up his 38,000 peso payment within six months. According to the former U.S. guest worker, the braceros are owed much more because of interest that compounded during the long years the money was unpaid. “The government has all the documents of the braceros. They took out the 10 percent and never delivered it,” Roque maintained. “They owe us billions. I’m not happy with the amount I received. It wasn’t fair.” Roque described former braceros living in Ciudad Juarez as “poor people” who sometimes “have nothing for bus fare.” The old farmer said he gets (see Border, page 3)

San Ysidro Health Center: We’re ready for Obamacare By Pablo J. Sáinz The San Ysidro Health Center is ready to help patients navigate the often confusing and controversial new world of health care reform with an army of bilingual enrollment counselors–including a brand new medical facility in Chula Vista. On October 1st, the first day that the Affordable Care Act opened enrollment for people to shop around for health insurance, the SYHC had a press conference to tell all San Diegans that there’s help and plenty of information to help them complete the enrollment process. Nearly 500,000 San Diego County residents lack health insurance. In South County, up to 40 percent of the population is uninsured. “SYHC has more than 25 bilingual enrollment counselors who will be working at all its clinics and at community centers to help individuals understand the new law and to apply for health insurance under Covered California,” said Ana Melgoza, vice-president of External Affairs for the San Ysidro Health Center. During the press conference, Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez said that it is important for people to learn more about Obamacare, and to use all the resources available at

community clinics, such as SYHC. “It’s going to take a lot of education, so it is important that people utilize this opportunity to compare their options in health care,” Gonzalez said. Dr. Maria Carriedo-Ceniceros, SYHC vice-president and chief medical officer, said that the community clinic system has been preparing for a long time for this day. “Today is an important day for members of our community because they now have the opportunity to qualify for coverage and treatment for their existing condition,” she said. “We hope to be able to enroll our community members.” The new Chula Vista Medical Plaza opened on Sept. 30th, coinciding with the new enrollment period. The medical plaza combines the three locations that the SYHC had in Chula Vista into a state-of-the-art 46,000 square foot facility in central Chula Vista. “By increasing capacity at the new Chula Vista Medical Plaza, SYHC is preparing to serve the estimated 30,000 uninsured South Region residents who will be eligible for new insurance coverage by 2014,” Melgoza said. “At full operational capacity, SYHC anticipates that the new Chula Vista Medical Plaza will serve over 32,000 un-duplicated individuals.” Within the building’s spa-

Outdoor Industry Executives Help Clean Tijuana River Valley More than 300 outdoor industry executives helped clean up the Tijuana River Valley as part of the 15th annual Rendezvous Service Project Sponsored by Timberland. The project was a joint effort among Outdoor Industry Association (OIA), Timberland, and San Diego-based WILDCOAST, an international conservation team that conserves coastal and marine ecosystems and wildlife. The Tijuana River Valley is one of the largest open space areas in south San Diego County. It provides the “park poor” communities of south San Diego with miles of interconnecting trails for hiking, biking and horseback riding. The goal of the service project was to collect 500 waste tires and 12,000 pounds of trash. ”It is very exciting to work hand-in-hand with outdoor industry leaders in restoring one of the most biologically significant wetlands of southern California,” said Serge Dedina, executive director of WILDCOAST. Local community service is an integral part of OIA Rendezvous. Over the years, the Rendezvous Service Project Sponsored by Timberland has touched all corners of the nation, spanning 12 cities and contributing more than 7,000 hours of volunteer labor on projects such as breaking trail in the

Arizona desert, building a playground for a Colorado mountain town, clearing overgrown forest in Oregon, improving a shelter for domestic violence

victims, lots of trail work, and more. Timberland has long been active in community engagement and service.

comes to the missing bracero money since it oversaw transfers of money to Mexico. “If Enrique Pena Nieto doesn’t pay us, then the U.S. should,” he contended. The historic U.S.-Mexico bracero debt claimed by Roque and other surviving workers and their relatives is now an international issue. This month, a caravan of ex-braceros and supporters crossed from Mexico into the U.S, where a multi-city tour ended in the filing of complaints with the United Nations and the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights.

The term is most often used in the context of joint cooperation in pursuing the so-called drug war, but in Roque’s view, Washington has co-responsibility when it

equipped state-of-the-art dental operatories, comfortable and welcoming counseling offices, a full-service, diagnostic laboratory, as well as a new radiology department featuring the latest advances in digital x-ray technology, plus other supportive and social services, Melgoza said. “The Chula Vista Medical Plaza has been designed to guarantee a unique, patientcentered experience,” she said. Founded in 1969 by a group of Mexican mothers in San Ysidro, the San Ysidro Health

Center had a specific mission: offer quality health care to a population that had been ignored for too long. The new Chula Vista clinic is a continuation of that dream. “It pays tribute to the Founding Mothers’ legacy and vision for providing the best services to the most vulnerable in our community,” Melgoza said. “We designed the renovated building and hired the new staff in honor of the values of the Founding Mothers. We think they would be very happy to see the families at the clinic

benefiting from the services.” San Ysidro Health Center invites the community to visit the new Chula Vista Medical Plaza, its latest effort to proudly serve, educate and improve the health and wellbeing of the community, by delivering exceptional individual and family-centered health care services. A ribbon-cutting ceremony will be held in mid-November. To learn more about the San Ysidro Health Center and the new Chula Vista Medical Plaza, please visit www.syhc.org.

Breast cancer screening can save lives October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month By Angela Reed-Smith October is National Breast Cancer Awareness month — an important time for women to learn more about how to detect breast cancer early and when to get regular checkups and screenings. It is never too early to take charge of your health, and women of all ages should take steps to know their risks for breast cancer and get screened as appropriate. Planned Parenthood provides breast cancer education and screening to hundreds of thousands of women across the United States, and we recommend that all women take a few simple steps for early detection. First, find out if you’re at risk for breast cancer. Talk to your family. You may be at risk if your mother, sister, or grandmother had breast or ovarian cancer, and you should tell your health care provider about your family history. No matter how old you are or what your family history is, make healthy choices that can reduce your risk of breast cancer. Maintain a healthy weight, and make exercise a part of your life. Breastfeed if you can.

Limit alcohol and don’t smoke. We encourage women of all ages to practice breast selfawareness, which means knowing what your breasts normally look and feel like. Talk to a health care provider as soon as possible if you notice any changes. Finally, women should get regular checkups and screenings as appropriate for their age and family history. Planned Parenthood and the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) recommend a clinical breast exam as part of a well-woman visit every one to three years for women ages 20 to 39, and every year for women 40 and over. If a woman has a family history of breast cancer or other medical conditions, her clinician may recommend more frequent screening. Planned Parenthood and ACOG recommend that most women get yearly mammograms starting at age 40. This year, thanks to Obamacare, more women than ever will begin to have access to preventive care and checkups that can help them take control of their breast health. Millions of women are now eligible to enroll in new, more affordable health insurance plans, and will have access to preventive care, including breast exams, without a co-pay.

Twenty-seven million currently insured women have already benefited from access to fully covered women’s preventive services, including breast exams and mammograms thanks to health care reform. When the law goes into full effect, 47 million women will benefit from this provision. The new law also means that health insurance plans will no longer be able to deny anyone coverage based on pre-existing conditions like breast cancer. This will help women who have overcome breast cancer continue medical care for a more healthy future without fear of losing insurance coverage or going bankrupt. Early detection is critically important, and the work that Planned Parenthood health center doctors and nurses do helps to identify potential cancers early — when it’s most treatable. Every year, Planned Parenthood health centers provide 640,000 clinical breast exams at health centers across the country, helping women take charge of their health and get the care they need. Angela Reed-Smith is the Senior Vice President of Patient Services at Planned Parenthood of the Pacific Southwest. For more information visit www.planned.org or call 1-888-743-7526.

A partir del 1° de octubre en CoveredCA.com, puede comparar y elegir entre una serie de planes de seguro de salud de alta calidad que cumplen con los requisitos de cobertura de la Ley de Cuidado de Salud Asequible. Usted pudo haber pensado que no podía permitirse un seguro de salud, pero Covered California proporcionará las herramientas para que usted pueda comprar un seguro de salud que cubra sus necesidades de atención médica y realidades financieras. Dependiendo de sus ingresos, usted podría calificar para ayuda financiera para pagar el plan que elija, o incluso ser recién elegible para Medi-Cal. La nueva ley federal que requiere que los ciudadanos estadounidenses y los inmigrantes presentes legalmente tengan un seguro de salud se llama la Ley Federal de Protección al Paciente y Cuidado de

Salud Asequible (también conocida como Obamacare). Como parte de la Ley de Cuidado de Salud Asequible, muchas nuevas leyes de protección al paciente ya están establecidas. Por ejemplo, las compañías de seguros ya no podrán negar la cobertura basándose en las condiciones médicas preexistentes. Esto está cambiando las vidas de personas como Doug Ogden, de 51 años, de Beverly Hills: “Durante años he tenido seguro de auto, seguro de casa y seguro contra terremotos.

Pero mientras el planeta se sigue calentando muchos seguimos la vida como si nada; ignorando que la responsabilidad es de todos y que ese “todos” no es simplemente un lugar común si no que nos incluye – a mí, a usted, a su vecino –. Vamos a decirlo de otro modo. De acuerdo con los científicos citados, el debate sobre la realidad del cambio climático está cerrado. No hay nada más que discutir. Se puede decir con un 95 por ciento de certeza, que el cambio climático ha sido pro-vocado por el hombre. No hay dudas. Así que como diría el secretario de Estado John Kerry, este informe “es otro llamado para despertar. Aquellos que

niegan la ciencia o encuentran excusas para no actuar, están jugando con fuego”. Y su excusa… ¿cuál es? La comodidad a la que nos ha acostumbrado la modernidad puede ser una buena excusa. Estamos acostumbrados a depender de aparatos eléctricos que funcionan todo el día, a habitaciones ilumina-das, a fuentes de agua accesibles y aparentemente interminables y pocas veces – si es que lo hacemos – nos detenemos a pensar, cuál puede ser nuestro aporte a la salud del planeta . Pero, la verdad es que si podemos ser un poco más concientes y decidirnos, de una vez por todas a ser más amigables con el pobre planeta. ¿Cómo? Bueno, si el cuarto está vacío: ¡apague la luz! Mantenga desconectados los aparatos eléctricos que no use con frecuencia y apague la computadora cuando no la esté usando. Prefiera las bombillas ahorradoras de energía y reutilice el papel y lo que pueda siempre que le sea posible. En otras palabras, evite los desechables: platos,

vasos, tazas y etcétera y nunca olvide la importancia de reciclar. Cuide los desechos tóxicos como aceites o elementos altamente contaminantes; deséchelos de forma adecuada. Las pilas o baterías, por ejemplo, nunca deben ir a parar a la basura como si tal cosa. Averigüe las alternativas de reciclaje de baterías en su comunidad. Hay varios almacenes de cadena que se encargan de recoger estos elementos, así como los desechos electrónicos o de partes. La energía solar es siempre la mejor alternativa; úsela cada vez que le sea posible y cierre la llave, no deje rodar el agua mientras usa lavamanos, lavaplatos o lavaderos. No desperdicie. El uso de bolsas plásticas es altamente nocivo para el planeta. Téngalo en mente y recuerde la importancia del reciclaje en su hogar. No lo ignore, el planeta lo necesita. Usted es parte de la diferencia.

Elisoe Medina built a political base (con’t from page 1) Having worked with the predominately Latino farm-workers of the UFW, Eliseo Medina set out to change this. Working with his close ally and former UFW colleague Miguel Contreras, and with then UNITE HERE President John Wilhelm, the trio got the AFL-CIO to switch to supporting immigrant rights in 2000. Prior to 2000, many Latinos did not feel at home in the labor movement. And while many joined with Medina in changing this perception—including his fellow UFW and SEIU alums Miguel Contreras, Stephen Lerner and Fred Ross, Jr.— Medina’s position as International Vice-President of SEIU enabled him to play a pivotal role. Medina saw opening the labor movement to Latinos as involving political empowerment, in addition to union membership. He used his position at SEIU (where he began in 1986) to win resources for Latino voter outreach, relying on methods learned from UFW electoral campaigns in the 1960’s and 70’s. Miguel Contreras brought this voter outreach strategy to Los Angeles when he became head of the city’s labor federation in 1997, and Medina had worked with Contreras in building Los Angeles’ Latino voter clout. Medina expanded the Los Angeles model for Latino voter outreach to Colorado and the Southwest in the 2006 national elections, securing key victories for pro-immigrant rights candidates. He formed the Mi Familia Vota organization to promote Latino voter registration and turnout in Colorado, Florida and other key swing states. This is where Latino voters gave

OCTOBER 4, 2013 Barack Obama the White House in both 2008 and 2012. This labor-funded and led Latino voter outreach effort explains why Latino voting increased so much in California, Colorado and other states while not meaningfully rising in Texas, where the absence of labor unions limited voter registration and efforts. Medina led a huge organizing victory in Houston, but never succeeded in turning Texas blue. Building the Immigrant Rights Movement Medina also played a central role in the building of the immigrant rights movement. As I discuss both in Beyond the Fields and in my new book, The Activist’s Handbook, 2nd edition, key to the movement’s growth was securing labor and religious community support. Medina brokered the peace agreement with Los Angeles’s Cardinal Mahony (who had been alienated from labor over a dispute over cemetery workers) that paved the way for the Catholic Church to go all out in promoting turnout for the 2006 immigrant rights protests. And SEIU and UNITE HERE were the two key unions pushing labor to play a major turnout role in these massive events. Medina has been a key negotiator on comprehensive immigration reform legislation since 2006. He has been criticized for being too willing to make deals with business interests, and for not demanding action from President Obama in 2009-10 when Democrats controlled Congress. But while there is merit in such criticisms, it is far from clear that immigration reform could have obtained the 60 votes necessary to overcome a filibuster in 2009-10 even if Medina and his allies had done everything perfectly. A Tarnished Legacy?

Despite these gains and others— including his role in the Los Angeles strike by SEIU Local 1877’s building service workers in April 2000 that won the largest wage increase in the 15-year history of SEIU’s Justice for Janitors campaign— some see Medina as leaving a tarnished legacy. In the fall of 2008, SEIU President Andy Stern decided to place his largest California local, SEIU-UHW, the healthcare workers division, into trusteeship. Medina was designated one of the trustees in January 2009, creating a firestorm of opposition from UHW officials and workers. These officials and workers, many of which are now affiliated with NUHW, will never forgive Medina for implementing Stern’s takeover. Far more disturbing for many Medina admirers was his decision in the spring of 2009 to support Stern’s effort to raid and takeover UNITE HERE. Medina was a close ally of UNITE HERE President John Wilhelm, with whom he worked to change the AFL-CIO’s immigration policy in 2000. His closest labor and political ally, Miguel Contreras, who had died in 2005, was from the predecessor to UNITE HERE. Contreras’ spouse, Maria Elena Durazo, head of the LA County Federation of Labor, also had her roots in UNITE HERE. When I asked Medina about Stern’s plans to raid UNITE HERE soon after they became public, he was uncomfortable discussing it. Whereas he embraced the UHW takeover he wanted nothing to do with the UNITE HERE attack. This was a period when Medina and other immigrant rights activists were primed for action on comprehensive reform, and he treated the UNITE HERE attack as a distraction. I was among those who saw Medina’s silence as be-

traying his loyalty to Wilhelm, Durazo, and the memory of Miguel Contreras. Some of us felt that Medina could have internally stopped Stern from raiding UNITE HERE, as Stern could not risk firing SEIU’s top Latino official over the issue. We all make mistakes in life, and Medina made a big one in tacitly backing SEIU’s raid on its longtime ally and the nation’s

most progressive union, UNITE HERE. Some believe this and his support for the SEIU- UHW takeover forever tarnished his legacy. But in the big picture Eliseo Medina did as much to advance social and economic justice as anyone of his time. His career was marked by extraordinary dedication to working people, and he never stopped believing in the power of “Si Se Puede”!

All it takes is 24 Republicans to shut down the government!

F

or once Democrats are showing a united front over the budget. And for once, the Republicans are divided over what to do. A minority of the Republicans want to stop the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, but the majority is willing to pass a budget and move on to the bigger battle over the debt ceiling. Unfortunately for the Republicans their hands are tied at the moment. There are just enough Republicans, about 24 hardcore conservatives, which is all it takes to bring about this impasse. The other 200 Republicans are ready and willing to move forward but until House Speaker John Boehner puts down this mini-revolt nothing will get done. The funny part is that this band of conservatives think they are winning. They believe that if they stand their ground they will prevail. Obamacare passed both houses, was signed into law by President Obama, withstood a Supreme Court challenge, and was re-affirmed when the country reelected Obama as President, despite the Republican challenger vowing to dismantle Obamacare. The American voter didn’t feel this was a priority and spoke via the ballot box. The Republican conservatives remind us of those little kids on the playground who if they don’t get way threaten to take their ball and go home, of course the threat then is nobody gets to play. Unfortunately, this is not a game and a government shutdown, not to mention the daily cost to the taxpayer each day the government stays closed, will hurt many people. The other aspect is that tens of mil-

lions of folks have gone around every day without the most basic of health insurance. This means that they do not do preventive checkups, cannot afford medicine, and avoid hospitals until it becomes an emergency, then that cost is passed on to taxpayers. Republicans believe in a bail out for big business, limit government oversight to allow of maximum wealth, and allow corporations to avoid paying their fair share of taxes. For the poor and underserved they are willing to forgo their basic needs and subject them to a sort of a strong will survive reality. Obamacare like most other program it is subject to the old supply and demand that all markets must face. For it to be a success, it will need those millions to sign up for the program. If they don’t sign up then all this government shut down mess will be for nothing, the program will collapse on itself due to lack of interest which would then prove the Republican conservatives right from the get go. Instead of waiting to see what happens the Republicans are taking a hard line stance and the only thing they will accomplish is to further tarnish their image and make their quest to keep the debt ceiling from rising any further that much more difficult. In the meantime, the Democrats will stay united and wait for the Republican Party to get their act together and put together a budget bill that can actually pass both Houses. The Republicans will lose on the budget issue and those kids who take their ball and go home alone, all they get is the disdain from all the rest of children.

One Latina journalist’s tips to help GOP politicians follow Chairman’s directive of engaging Latino media By Marisa Treviño LATINALISTA

Ever since it was made clear that Obama won his bid for re-election with the help of Latino voters, Republicans have known that they need to do more to convince us that they aren’t the political bad guys. It’s a hard sell for them in light of stunts like Arizona’s Gov. Brewer who has banned issuing driver’s licenses to DREAMers granted deferred deportations and victims of domestic violence and human trafficking. An editorial in the Arizona Republic even called out the governor for being “vindictive, spiteful, petty, short-sighted and childish” in implementing this ban. It definitely makes the Republican case that they want to be the amigo of Latino voters that much harder to swallow — but it’s not stopping them from trying. In fact, the Republican National Committee Chairman, Reince Priebus, wrote an open letter to his GOP colleagues, essentially giving them marching orders — “If you’re not engaging with the Hispanic community, you better get to work.” In his letter, he reminds the GOP of the power of Latino voters, the failed promises of Democrats, tips on how not to turn off Latino voters — obviously Brewer didn’t get the memo — and how every GOP politician needs to include Hispanic media in their outreach. Also, any engagement effort has a media component, and Republicans must engage with Hispanic journalists. If I can speak with Jorge Ramos and José Diaz-Balart about the future of the party, so can everyone else. Juntos podemos hacer más — together we can do more. I’ve been around long enough to remember the days when Latino journalists, not just highprofile anchors and reporters from Spanishlanguage stations and papers, not only had access to GOP political candidates but were routinely included on press mailings and conference calls. When McCain lost to Obama in 2008, there rose a tension between Latino journalists and

most GOP politicians and their staff. Though it was never said directly, it was felt that Latino journalists were in part to be blamed for McCain’s defeat. From one day to the next, inclusion on conference calls and emails dried up. Now, I’m lucky if I get a return phone call — am still waiting for someone from Raúl Labrador’s office to return my call. It’s bad enough Anglo Republicans diss Latino journalists but our own gente? Thankfully, there are some Latino Republican politicians who have never stopped taking calls from Latino journalists or following us on Twitter. It will be interesting to see how many of the GOP heed Priebus’ ‘advice.’ For those that do, I have a few more consejitos: 1. Understand that Latino journalists are the same as other journalists — we have a job to do and try to do it in the most balanced and objective way possible. 2. Don’t be afraid to speak to a Latino journalist. Again, we have a job to do — informing our audience. If you feel like Latino journalists are out to make you look bad, we aren’t doing anything more than reporting on your policy stand and what you say in public. 3. Understand that Latino journalists are just the messenger and so help us to get the complete facts. Include us on your press lists and conference calls. 4. Take our calls and return our calls. It’s a basic matter of professional courtesy that should not be dictated by personal feelings. After all, you are a public servant and should be representing all the people. 5. Develop a thick skin and know that Latino journalists aren’t responsible for organizing protests, sit-ins, boycotts and other forms of expression that some in the Latino community have felt it necessary to do to get your attention. We merely report on their actions and your reactions. If more in the GOP party adopted these attitudes, there’s no guarantee that the GOP message will be received any better by Latino constituents but it can be certain that your message will be delivered.

In Wake of Shutdown, It’s Not Immigration that Needs Resuscitating, It’s the GOP Government Shutdown Shows Need for House GOP Modernizers to Stand Up to Radicals By Frank Sharry AMERICA’S VOICE

illegally, and 20 others have said they would be willing to consider it – many more than what most media reports suggest… Speaker John Boehner has said he will not bring up any bill that does not have majority support from at least 118 Republicans. Republicans will insist on securing the border and maintaining respect for the law, and most will refuse liberals’ calls for pathways to citizenship. But, with over 100 open to legalization, and still others who have not explicitly opposed it, a path to legalization might not be far away.” Since there are ways to square Republican support for a path to legal status that has “no special path to citizenship” with our goal of an achievable citizenship option for all those legalized, this movement is significant. It strongly suggests that a near-majority of House Republicans are open to an approach towards the 11 million undocumented immigrants in America that could serve as the basis for bipartisan negotiations with Democrats and bicameral negotiations with the Senate. Moreover, it underscores what advocates have been saying for some time now: right now we have the 218 votes in the House of Representatives to enact common sense immigration reform with an inclusive legalization program and an achievable roadmap to citizenship. Now it’s up to Speaker John Boehner (R-OH), Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) and Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) to find a way for the modernizers to move forward rather than remain hogtied by the 30 Republican radicals. As the shutdown proves, when Speaker Boehner and his fellow House leaders allow Rep. Steve King (R-IA) and his 29 friends to run the Republican Caucus, the GOP loses. If he does the same on immigration reform, the Party is headed for oblivion. It’s time for the modernizers in the House GOP to step up and take control of their caucus and set a new direction of the GOP. Nothing less than the future of their party hangs in the balance.

Conservative journalist Byron York of the Washington Examiner has an interesting piece entitled, “How 30 House Republicans are forcing the Obamacare fight.” In it, he states: “There are 233 Republicans in the House. Insiders estimate that three-quarters of them, or about 175 GOP lawmakers, are willing, and perhaps even eager, to vote for a continuing resolution that funds the government without pressing the Republican goal of defunding or delaying Obamacare. On the other side, insiders estimate about 30 House Republicans believe strongly that Obamacare is such a farreaching and harmful law that the GOP should do everything it can – everything – to stop it or slow it down.” Sound familiar? Just swap out every “Obamacare” reference for “immigration reform.” The ability of House radicals to make the House GOP dysfunctional has led many to declare immigration reform all but dead. Nevertheless, we remain optimistic. For one, smart House Republicans understand that their party is careening toward an existential moment of truth. The nation is experiencing a demographic transformation and the GOP either adapts to this reality or ceases to be a viable national party. The 2012 election made it clear that a whites-only electoral strategy is a prescription for defeat. Inaction on immigration will only hasten the GOP’s demise. The disaster that is currently unfolding with the government shutdown is likely to embolden the modernizers to stand up to the radicals. For another, Republicans are steadily moving away from their prior position of “self-deportation” and towards legalization. As Maria Santos of the Weekly Standard highlights, there are scores of GOP House Members ready to bolt from the shackles of the “30 Republicans” and move immigration reform forward. She writes: “84 House Republicans have publicly voiced support for granting some type of legal status Follow Frank Sharry and America’s Voice to the 11 million immigrants here in the country on Twitter: @FrankSharry and @AmericasVoice

Reforma migratoria ante la Cámara Baja What Congress Really Needs: A Big Fat Whack With A Chancla del “casi se pudo” Por Maribel Hastings AMERICA’S VOICE

lineamientos del Senado, pero con lenguaje diferente sobre seguridad fronteriza. ¿Avanzará este proyecto? La estrategia obviamente es evitar que el tema muera, poniendo sobre la mesa una medida que pueda movilizar el proceso y permitir una negociación con los republicanos. Los demócratas, sin embargo, tampoco son ajenos a la política del “casi se pudo”. Durante los pasados años han sido varias las instancias en las cuales pudieron presentar medidas de reforma migratoria que postergaron con la excusa de turno, y en ocasiones presentaron medidas que sabían que no tenían tiempo ni posibilidades de abordar, pero dando la percepción de que estaban tratando. Esta vez, sin embargo, es diferente y también para los demócratas la reforma debería tener un sentido de urgencia. Contrario a oportunidades previas, éstos no tenían sobre sus hombros el récord de deportaciones de la administración de Barack Obama, una piedra en el zapato bastante difícil de sacudir. Además, está en juego el legado del presidente Obama, que ganó la elección de 2008 con una promesa de reforma y obtuvo la reelección asegurando que en un segundo periodo la concretaría. Es cierto que la Casa Blanca no legisla, pero parece que esta vez está más dispuesta a presionar al Congreso, pues según la publicación POLITICO, planifica una oleada de presión por la reforma migratoria este otoño. Con todo, los demócratas de la Cámara Baja tienen que tomar nota. Ciertamente el récord migratorio del Partido Republicano es tan nefasto y su imagen ante el votante latino está tan dañada, que los demócratas podrían pensar que no tienen que mover un dedo y que si la reforma no progresa, toda la culpa recaerá sobre los republicanos. Pero un reciente sondeo de Latino Decisiones encontró que ambos partidos tienen algo que perder ante los votantes latinos si la reforma no se concreta. Según el sondeo, 48% de los encuestados indicó que los dos tendrán la culpa si la reforma no progresa. Y hay fatiga, pero la presión no cesa. Este 5 de octubre hay más de 120 eventos en 38 estados y el 8 de octubre miles convergerán en Washington exigiendo un voto de un plan de reforma con vía a la ciudadanía en la Cámara Baja. ¿Insistirá el presidente cameral, John Boehner, en aplicar la extraoficial Regla Hastert de sólo llevar al pleno medidas que tengan el apoyo de una mayoría de la mayoría republicana? Si así fuera, ¿conseguirán los proponentes esos 118 votos republicanos? ¿Se aplicará la simple mayoría? ¿Qué harán los demócratas si al final los republicanos pestañean y deciden invitarlos a la pista de baile? ¿Bailarán o seguirán culpando a los republicanos por la inacción? En la Cámara Baja del “casi se pudo” cualquier cosa puede suceder.

as children who know no other country but this one. No regard for the outcry from millions and millions of American citizens who believe this is one of the biggest human rights crises in this country today. All we get is complaining, finger pointing… inane excuses. I’m looking at you, Congress. Have you not learned the lessons of the 2012 elections? Have you not understood the statistical reports showing the unstoppable growth of the Latino community, our budding political power, the collective shade we throw your way each time we see and hear of your attempts at blocking immigration reform? Have you not learned to recognize the swishing sound of the impending chancla coming your way? As any Latina mom could tell you, the chancla is coming. And, when it comes, they won’t know what hit them. In the last couple of decades, the Latino community has grown to make up 10 percent of the national electorate, according to the Pew Hispanic Center, up from 9 percent in 2008. But 10 percent is not nearly enough. We need to make sure we show up and VOTE. At next year’s midterm elections, we have an unbelievable opportunity to hit the Congress with our metaphorical chanclas. Next year, WE THE PEOPLE decide who controls what. WE decide whether the hyper-partisan fog engulfing Congress for the past five years dissipates or becomes denser. And depending on who saves or dooms immigration reform, WE decide who gets the chancla. So enough with the Congress pataletas: We have the chancla in our hands, it’s now time we use it. This nascent “Chanclas4Change” movement aims to go beyond mainstream, grassroots and current technology-based advocacy to turn our collective pain into collective action for immigration reform. But this movement will only be able to thrive with the power of coalition. Which means, we’ll need YOU. You will be hearing lots more about the Chanclas4Change in the coming days. In the meantime, gear up, Latinos: Get ready to remind Congress who wears the chanclas around here. As for you, Congress, you have been warned: Don’t make us take off our chanclas… or face the Fuacata! Elianne Ramos is Chief Chancla Officer. www.elianneramos.com

¡ASK A MEXICAN! Latino politicos and immigrant-rights activists asking for the blessings of pendejos who should be spending life in prison for their cover-ups. Pray to God, pray to La Virgen de Guadalupe, even to La Santa Muerte if you must—but any Mexican who still gives money to the Church might as well also donate to la migra. I know why the Mexican man digs in the trashcan: He can’t believe what Americans throw away. My mom was from Northern Ireland and we got many treasures over the years from walking past our neighbors’ trashcans. She grew up dirt-poor and could not believe all the things Americans would waste and throw away. She honestly felt it was sinful. I dug through trashcans myself and had several yard sales over the years, which helped put me through college. Mary in Oregon

Appling for DACA? (con’t from page 2)

family did not have the funds to cover the cost of her application fee. “The process started with filling out papers, but it (eventually) requires spending money too. This is where I stopped completing the (DACA) process.” The young woman said that she did not have a Mexican passport, a requirement when applying for DACA. Obtaining the passport, she said, would have cost her an additional $80. “If I wanted to continue, I would need almost $600 to process the rest of my paperwork. This was money that my parents did not have. So we took a little break while we tried to save.” Gutierrrez’s parents planned to wait until they received their tax returns, to pay the fee and complete the process for their daughter. That changed, however, when the father saw an opportunity to improve his family’s lot by opening a small business. “All of our money, including the savings my brother and I had, was put into that store, which I proudly stand by with my family,” said Gutierrez. However, she said, that meant “my [application] was put once more on hold, because we lacked the money.” DACA does offer the possibility of a feewaiver, but it is only for very special cases. According to U.S. Customs and Immigration Services (USCIS), one must be under the age of 18 and also meet one of the following requirements: being homeless, in foster care or without any support from parents or family, having an income less than 150 percent of the U.S. poverty level, or not being able to care for oneself because of a chronic disability, among others. For Jovana Lopez, 28, of Bakersfield, the high cost of the DACA application led her to organize a food and bake sale, which ultimately allowed her, and other applicants who got involved, to cover the fee. “Selling chocolates, cookies and food might sound ridiculous to raise funds, but thanks to the support of many, this helped us to pay for our DACA applications,” she enthused. Lack of awareness Cost isn’t the only reason DACA-eligible immigrants are not applying. Some remain unaware of the program, don’t know where to obtain the application and supporting documents, or have difficulties completing the application once they have it. “I read over all the paperwork, which must have been more than 15 pages. I understood none of it,” said Gutierrez. “The questions were extremely vague. In the end, once my father got tired of hearing my excuse of not being able to understand, and reading it over and over in front of him, he decided that we should wait until we could [have someone explain it to us],” said Gutierrez. The forms needed to apply for DACA can be obtained through the USCIS website, along with detailed information about what is required to complete them, and details about the legislation including guidelines for eligibility.

Maria Olaguez, an Immigration Attorney who practices in Kern County, said many of her clients are confused by the application process, or scared that a misdemeanor or minor legal infraction may disqualify them or even lead to deportation. Olaguez advises Dreamers and other immigrants who think they may qualify for DACA to seek legal advice from an attorney before filling out their application. “There are attorneys who are willing to help Dreamers for low cost,” said Olaguez. And, “not every crime or infraction disqualifies you from DACA,” she added.

Volunteers turn adult day care center into an oasis

ARAMARK volunteers making improvements at the Adult Day Health Care Center By Pablo J. Sáinz The building, which was built in 1934, is in need of many reDerick Petersen grew up in pairs, but the improvements the Ocean View area of San and beautification projects Diego, near Imperial and Mar- that the ARAMARK volunket. So when he found out that he and more than 70 other volunteers from the ARAMARK Building Community program were going to the Adult Day Health Care Center (ADHC) in that area to make lots of improvements, he felt great joy. “For me, this is giving back to my community,” said Petersen, who for the past eight years has been volunteering for ARAMARK Building Community, a program that enriches lives by helping families improve their health, secure jobs, and move out of poverty, in partnership with community centers around the world. “I think the patients will be happier with the improvements,” Petersen said. “It will be very uplifting.” The Neighborhood Housing Association (NHA), one of San Diego’s largest human and social services agencies, operates the Adult Day Care Center. The ADHC offers services and care for disabled adults, who might have varied conditions such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease. Many of the participants use walkers, canes, or wheelchairs, and more than 90 percent need physical therapy. The volunteer event, which was on Wednesday, October 2nd, launched a partnership between ARAMARK and NHA. During the day, volunteers constructed an urban produce garden with customized planters that will be accessible to the center’s physically disabled members, to encourage outdoor activities. They also built ben-ches for the outdoor area so family members can spend time with their loved ones while they are in the new garden. Volunteers also painted inspirational murals throughout the center, and created a handicapped-accessible meditation garden complete with wall murals, benches, and artificial turf. “We’re in the community, we live in the community, so it’s important to give back to the community,” said Bev Dribin, vice-president of community relations for ARAMARK. ADHC services provide much needed support to underserved families struggling with specialized care needs. More than 116 patients are enrolled in the program, and 50 people attend the ADHC programs daily, according to Luis Gonzalez, director of community affairs for NHA. The majority of patients are Latinos, Filipinos, and African-Americans, he said.

teers made this week will mark a new era for the ADHC and its clients. He said that NHA receives most of its funds for the ADHC from the County of San Diego, Medical, and Medicare. “As a non-profit, we don’t have all the resources to rebuild the center, so these improvements will benefit patients a lot,” Gonzalez said. “The facility is looking a lot better now. We’re very grateful to have the ARAMARK volunteers come and donate their time and skills to help improve the lives of so many people.” Nancy Barnum, whose husband Ron has Parkinson’s disease and dementia, and is a patient at the ADHC, was also volunteering. She said that the center has become a second home for her and her husband, who gets “excellent” attention and care there. “This is fantastic,” Barnum said. “I love the way they treat people here, especially my husband. That is why it was important for me to come and help in any way I can to make this place look beautiful.” Visit www.neighborhood house.org for more information on the Adult Day Care Center and other available programs.
