JULY 28 - AUGUST 3, 2017

A PERFORMANCE EVALUATION OF THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION

Hilbert Morales EL OBSERVADOR An email from Washington, D.C., July 20, 2017, communicated that Democratic Party Minority Leader Senator Nancy Pelosi's staff had compiled this evaluation exactly six months after President Donald J. Trump was sworn in as the elected President of the United States of America, making him the Chief Executive Officer and Commander in Chief (CEO-CIC). The following compilation is an exact measure of effective governance capability of this Trump Administration presented here by EO so that all those who voted for this Republican Party Presidential Candidate may have an opportunity to review what their personal vote really achieved: (AFTER BEING IN OFFICE) 6 Months: The Trump Presidency By the Numbers (as compiled and presented by Office of Democratic Leader Senator Nancy Pelosi): 36%: Job approval rating for President Trump – worst of any president ever at this point in (any) presidency.   0: legislative accomplishments (outcome is no effective federal governance). • No plan (to control or) lower health care costs (which is 19% of this nation's Gross Domestic Product (GDP). • No jobs bill (an impor tant presidential campaign promise to the working class folks). • No infrastructure bill (which would both create jobs and boost the domestic economy). • No tax reform (which must include a 'sunset clause' ending all cor-

porate subsidies and welfare). • No plan to avoid defaulting on our debt (We, The People have an impeccable debt payment record). • No budget (Which indicates no plan regarding the future of all of us). 836: False or misleading claims made by President Trump (How does one determine when Trump is being truthful, factual, or honest? Consequently, a low trust level is the outcome). 991: Tweets by the President (Several reveal his emotional maturity).   40: Days at Trump golf properties (often taking care of Trump Enterprises business).   1: Number of solo news conferences (No communication nor debate of proposals for public examination and inputs = NO CONFIDENCE). 0: Trump Tax returns made public (Which generates distrust due to no transparency...But then the Republican Party had almost no vetting standards during its candidate selection process; same is true for Democratic Party whose presidential candidate was a 'socialist').   1: Special Counsel appointed to investigate the President for possible collusion with Russia to undermine our election process...(the undermining of the Democratic standard: One person:One Vote; no inf luence by those who are not established constituents).   1: FBI Director fired by President Trump because of the Russia investigation (Why is this so sensitive to President Trump?).   3: Number of people Trump has fired who were investigating him and members of his administration’s con-

nection to Russia's (alleged) meddling in our election (which undermines our Democratic election process based upon truthfulness, factual, & honest information rather than 'created facts' (i.e., propaganda). 2: One-on-one meetings with Russian President Vladimir Putin (where was the 'American Russian Translator'? Trump does not realize that the presence of an American Translator would have 'protected him' in a variety of ways).   5: Number of times Trump was dismissive to our NATO allies (which weakened American global leadership as a superpower...resulting in elevating both Russia and China to that level. It is amazing how destructive one person can be!).   6: Number of dictators/ strongmen Trump has praised (One only praises those with whom one identifies. Trump wants to lead America with oligarchic authority which he does not have at all).   2: Withdrawals from international agreements (China moved into the leadership vacuum created when Trump withdrew America from the TransPacific Pact {The TPP trade agreement with 12 nations which all had agreed to lower import/ export taxation levels}.   120: Vacant leadership positions (Deputy Secretaries/ Undersecretaries/ Assistant Secretaries) in the Trump Administration – three times higher than at the same point in President Obama’s first term. (Who would want to be a Trump appointee?; This datum reveals the misguidance of conservatives who favor 'no governance' to 'big government' when the real issue is appropriate levels of governance & administration' in public service attempting to do 'the greatest good for the

greatest number'). 72: Vacant US Ambassador positions around the world (who would deal with American's personal and international commercial matters which strengthen relationships).   47: States that have refused to fully comply with the Trump Administration’s request to hand over sensitive and personal voter information. (Another example of Trump's bigotry and self-interest focus; If 'We, the People' agree to releasing personal Voter's Information, why doesn't Trump also reveal his personal IRS Form 1040 Income Tax submittals?). REGARDING PROPOSED ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT: Former Mayor Willie Brown correctly reminds us that the successor would be Vice President Pence, who would be difficult to defeat politically during the coming 2020 Presidential election cycle. My question to Republican Leaders: Why not be more constructive? For example, instead of “repeal and replace” ACA/ObamaCare, try a “improve and implement” legislative approach? What the above record reveals is a propensity to destroy existing law, best practices and regulations in a quest to reach undefined smaller federal government goals. My question to Democratic Leaders: Why has no legislation been proposed which demonstrates an effort to mitigate the disparities in wealth distribution? My question to both Parties: Why have Wall Street and banking executives not been prosecuted for egregious wrongful uses of their positions of public trust, authority and power? E xamples: Der ivatives Trading and Recent Wells Fargo Bank executives who f ired 5,000 bank employees who would not set up unauthorized check-

ing and savings accounts which falsified this banks success; increased its stock values and thereby benefitted these executives who still received 'performance bonuses'? Where is honesty and integrity without which this nation's full faith and credit standards become very tainted and invalid. My observation is that Mainstream Media's TV program executives helped Trump get elected by providing his presidential campaign with extraordinary amounts of exposure knowing that as a known performer a very large number of viewers would be reached which is what enhanced the value of their advertiser's video presentations. All decisions these days seem to be made using bottom line-profit oriented decision making paradigms. Where are the 'societal stewardship values' which enabled this nat ion to achieve levels of human achievements in large numbers which were not and are not being achieved by other nations and societies today? This nation needs to get back to basic human relationship issues. Americans in the past looked out after each other as good Samaritans, and today, too many of us have become very mercenary and very good devotees of conspicuous materialistic consumerism. What happened to being frugal? To living within one's responsible means? Things will improve when each of us, at every level of our society and position of authority, commit to practicing the 'Golden Rule' which is 'Do unto others what you would have them do unto you.' This simple approach would ensure more equity, comprehension, and compassion. 'We, The People' must insist that this happen soon. We all merit acceptance, respect, and no insults to our personal dignity.

Make No Mistake—Play Is Crucial, Experts Say

to the positive emotional, social and skill-based learning they get through play. • Recognize the Power of Recess. Recess helps kids learn. Research shows that children are more attentive after recess. • Trust Your Kids, Within Boundaries. Teach kids problem-solving skills to help them make better decisions and then set certain parameters in terms of knowing where they are, giving them space and trusting their judgment. That’s how kids learn independence, competence, and confidence they need for success in life. • Guide Children’s Tech Use. Give kids time to explore virtual worlds

NAPSI While most kids score an “A” in play, many parents need to understand just how crucial play is for their children’s development. That’s the consensus experts share in “The American State of Play” report published by The Genius of Play™, a national movement to raise awareness of play’s vital benefits. “The latest research shows that children are spending less time playing than ever before and it’s a problem,” says Dana Points, a parenting expert and one of the report’s contributors. “Play is one of the most essential elements of learning, helping kids develop social, emotional and

cognitive skills. Yet overly structured schedules, increased screen time and diminishing recesses in schools are getting in the way.”

JULY 28 - AUGUST 3, 2017 and tech-based play but set limits, just as you do with everything else. Parents can be role models in how to use technology in a responsible way. • Let Kids Lead the Way. Parents learn much more from children when they interact and play with them on their terms. Just being present plays a significant role. More expert advice and everyday play ideas based on a child’s age or developmental stage are available at TheGeniusofPlay.org. To support The Genius of Play’s mission to bring more play into kids’ lives and get daily play inspiration and facts, follow @GeniusOfPlay on Facebook and Instagram.

Parenting experts and educators say that if parents understood just how crucial play was for their children’s development, they’d encourage their kids to play more often. Photo Credit: NAPSI

To help your child learn, explore, create and evolve through play, check out these tips: • Engage in All Types of Play. Kids learn through all play, but not all play must be structured and not all play is the same. Kids may take part in active, cooperative, creative, even solitary play in a single afternoon, with and without actual toys. • Use Play as a Learning Tool. Enrolling children in a program to learn a skill is not the same as just letting kids play. The pressure parents feel to make sure their kids are getting the best training can be counterproductive

BEAT THE HEAT WITH A WORKING AC UNIT upfront. Follow the general guidelines for hiring a contractor, which can be found at go.bbb.org/generalcontractors.

Rebecca Harpster Golden Gate Better Business Bureau My apartment building doesn’t have AC, so in the summer heat I’ve had to keep my fans on full blast whenever I’m home. If, like me, you don’t currently have an air conditioning (AC) unit, you may be thinking about getting one. For those who already have one, there’s no time like the present to schedule a check-up or perform maintenance. This can help ward off future problems and costly repairs. In 2016, consumers nationwide filed over 10,000 complaints about heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) companies and contractors with BBB – down three percent from 2015. Complaints involve being charged up front for a service that was never done, difficulties getting refunds, and misleading estimates. BBB offers the following advice for maintaining and installing an AC unit: • Choose the unit wisely. Before finding a

• Verify credentials and licenses. Make sure the company or contractor is licensed and insured, and ask for proof of the appropriate documents. California law requires an HVAC Contractor License (C-20) through California’s Contractors State License Board (CSLB) for projects that exceed $500. You can check the status of a license at cslb.ca.gov.

contractor to install your air conditioner, do your research to determine what brand and model you want to buy. Look at performance, price and energy efficiency. Read the product literature and go online to learn about others’ experiences, including the model’s repair history and how well it holds up over time. • Do your research when hiring a contractor. Research companies for free at bbb.org. There you can see a

business’ rating, complaint history and reviews from past customers. You can also use the BBB Accredited Business Directory to find a trustworthy business. Make sure the contractor you hire to install your system is an approved and authorized dealer by the manufacturer. It’s important to solicit multiple estimates, request a price breakdown, get everything in writing and read the contract carefully. Pay with a credit card if possible and don’t feel pressured to pay

• Save money with proper maintenance. You can do some routine maintenance yourself, like replacing disposable filters or cleaning permanent ones. It’s also important to schedule yearly check-ups with a technician. They’ll inspect your cooling system for a variety of factors, and this can save money in the long run by preventing an expensive future repair. For more tips on choosing an air conditioning unit, installing it, and maintaining it, check out go.bbb.org/ hvac. You can reach your BBB at info@ bbbemail.org or (510) 844-2000, or by visiting goldengate.bbb.org

MANTÉNGASE FRESCO CON UN ACONDICIONADOR DE AIRE OPERATIVO

Rebecca Harpster Golden Gate Better Business Bureau Mi apartamento no tiene aire acondicionado, por lo que en el calor del verano he tenido que encender mi ventilador cuando estoy in casa. Si, como yo, usted no tiene un aparato de aire acondicionado (AA), puede estar pensando en conseguir uno. Para aquellos que ya tienen uno, es un tiempo perfecto para fijar un chequeo o

mantenerlo. Esto puede ayudarle a evitar problemas y reparaciones costosos en el futuro. En 2016, los consumidores presentaron más de 10.000 quejas contra empresas y contratistas de calefacción, ventilación y aire acondicionado (CVAA) con BBB – abajo tres por ciento desde el 2015. Las quejas involucraron ser cargado inicialmente por un servicio que nunca fue realizado, dificultades obtener reembolsos, y estimaciones engañosas.

BBB ofrece los siguientes consejos para mantener e instalar un aparato de AA:

a un contratista, que se puede encontrar en go.bbb.org/generalcontractors.

• Piense antes de comprar. Antes de buscar un contratista para instalar su AA, haga su investigación para determinar qué marca y modelo desea comprar. Considere el rendimiento, el precio y si es de bajo consumo. Lea la literatura del producto y vaya en línea para aprender sobre las experiencias de otros, incluyendo el historial de reparación del modelo y como se mantiene.

• Verifique credenciales y licencias. Asegúrese de que la empresa o el contratista tienen licencia y están asegurado y pida por prueba de los documentos apropiados. La ley de California requiere una Licencia de Contratista de CVAA (C-20) de la Junta de Licencia Estatal de Contratistas de California (CSLB) para proyectos que exceden $500. Puede verificar el estado de una licencia en cslb.ca.gov.

• Haga su investigación al contratar a un contratista. Puede investigar compañías en bbb.org gratis. Allí se puede ver la calificación de un negocio, su historial de quejas y comentarios de clientes anteriores. También puede comenzar con confianza y usar el Directorio de Negocios Acreditados por BBB para buscar a un contratista o una empresa. Asegúrese de que el contratista que usted contrata para instalar su aparato es un distribuidor autorizado por el fabricante. Es importante solicitar varias estimaciones, pedir un desglose de precios, obtener todo por escrito y leer el contrato cuidadosamente. Pague con una tarjeta de crédito si es posible y no se sienta presionado a pagar por adelantado. Siga los consejos generales para contratar

• Ahorre dinero con mantenimiento adecuado. Usted mismo puede hacer algún mantenimiento rutinario, como reemplazar filtros desechables o limpiar filtros permanentes. También es importante fijar chequeos anuales con un técnico. Inspeccionarán su aparato para una variedad de factores. Esto puede ahorrarle dinero a largo plazo al prevenir una costosa reparación en el futuro. Para más consejos sobre cómo elegir un AA, instalarlo y mantenerlo, visite go.bbb.org/hvac. Puede ponerse en contacto con su BBB a través de info@bbbemail.org o (510) 844-2000, o en goldengate.bbb.org

Cinco consejos para cuidar sus ojos a fondo protegen sus ojos de la catarata e incluso de cáncer ocular. Cuando está afuera, asegúrese de usar gafas con 100 por ciento de protección UV y también póngase un sombrero. 5. No fume. Fumar aumenta el riesgo de enfermedades oculares como la catarata y degeneración macular relacionada con la edad e incrementa el riesgo de enfermedades coronarias que influyen indirectamente a la salud de los ojos. Humo de tabaco, incluyendo humo de segunda mano, también empeora el ojo seco.

NAPSM La primavera es la época del año que marca un nuevo comienzo; una nueva vida llena de flores, pájaros, un clima cálido que es además un buen recordatorio para cuidar a fondo la salud en general, y eso incluye los ojos. Entre la gente mayor, la pérdida de la visión o peor, la ceguera, puede tener un impacto sumamente negativo en la calidad de una vida, limitando la habilidad de hacer las cosas que nos encantan, ya sea leer, conducir o ver a los nietos. La buena noticia es que muchas de las condiciones que afectan la visión se pueden prevenir o retardar con el cuidado apropiado. La Academia Americana de Oftalmología recomienda los siguientes cinco consejos para cuidar sus ojos a fondo: 1. Haga una cita para un examen de la vista con un oftalmólogo, un especialista dedicado al cuidado médico y quirúrgico de los ojos. 2. Preste atención a lo que come. Incluya en su dieta bastante frutas cítricas, aceites vegetales, nueces, granos enteros, verduras de hoja verde oscuro y pescado de aguas frías. Tener un cuerpo sano es equivalente a tener ojos sanos. 3. Haga ejercicio regularmente. No sólo ayuda a su corazón y a niveles de energía, sino que también puede beneficiar a los ojos, de acuerdo con muchos estudios. 4. Use gafas de sol. Las gafas de sol

Para quienes se preocupan por el costo de un examen ocular, el programa EyeCare America® de la Academia Americana de Oftalmología puede ayudar. Casi 6,000 oftalmólogos voluntarios dedicados ofrecen cuidado ocular y exámenes de los ojos, generalmente sin costo alguno a pacientes elegibles. Desde 1985, el programa ha ayudado a más de 1.8 millones de personas necesitadas. EyeCare America sirve a ciudadanos o residentes legales de EE. UU. que no pertenecen a un plan HMO. Para ser elegible para el programa Seniors (gente mayor) usted debe: • Tener 65 años o más. • No haberse realizado un examen oftalmológico en tres años o más.

AS CONGRESS PONDERS REFORM, HEALTH CENTERS ADDRESS ROOT CAUSES OF ILLNESS Suzanne Potter California News Service PETALUMA, Calif. - As Congress struggles to make the health care system more cost-effective, local Community Health Centers are already doing their part, with a focus on prevention instead of treatment of illness. Studies show that close to half of people's health status is directly related to behavior - diet, exercise, smoking and stress management - and only ten percent is tied to health care. Yet, according to Dr. Fasih Hameed with the Petaluma Health Center, 90 percent of health care money is spent on treating people's symptoms rather than trying to address the causes and prevent them. "You could never address it just through traditional healthcare, so we had to expand our ability to do so by innovating all these programs," Hameed said. The Petaluma Health Center handles about 150,000 medical visits a year, but it also refers patients to programs like "Petaluma Loves Active Youth," which offers medical advice,

exercise classes and healthy cooking demonstrations. The health center runs a large community garden, where anyone can pick the produce, and hosts a weekly organic farmer's market that accepts food stamps and charges on a sliding scale. An estimated 14 percent of Americans, or 48 million, are food insecure meaning they lack access to nutritious, affordable food. In California, Hameed notes, many low-income families are squeezed by rising rents, leaving little money for groceries. And often, the least expensive, most convenient food options are the least healthy. "Fattening foods and sugary foods and unhealthy foods are cheap and so, kids are actually malnourished but obese," he said. "It's the paradox of the food insecure." A study in Petaluma a few years ago of a program that distributed free bags of produce showed that families who got them ate better and reduced their body mass index after just 12 weeks. The National Association of Community Health Centers has launched a project with the Medtronic Foundation to document progress on this issue. That report will be released later this year.

Para ser elegible para el programa Glaucoma usted debe: • No haber tenido un examen ocular en 1 año. • Estar en riesgo incrementado de tener glaucoma, determinado por su edad, raza e historial familiar de glaucoma. “La pérdida de la visión también está asociada con una mayor prevalencia de problemas de salud crónicos, caídas, lesiones, depresión y aislamiento social”, remarcó el Dr. Charles P. Wilkinson, M.D., Presidente de EyeCare America. “La mayoría de la gente espera hasta notar cambios en su visión, por eso es importante mantener los ojos saludables antes de que comiencen a aparecer las señales y los síntomas”.

FORMAS FRESCAS DE DISFRUTAR SU 'NOCHE DE PIZZA' Y TAMBIEN DE UNA COMIDA BALANCEADA plato más balanceado siguiendo los consejos siguientes: * Al menos la mitad de su plato debe contener frutas y verduras. Por ejemplo, si come una porción de pizza de queso, combínela con ensalada fresca o su plato acompañante favorito de verduras.

BPT Usted sabe que una dieta balanceada con abundantes frutas y verduras es óptima para su salud. Sin embargo, lograrla puede ser in desafío, debido a las múltiples obligaciones con las que debe cumplir cada día. La planificación cotidiana de sus comidas no tiene que ser una tarea tan ardua si recurre a su refrigerador. De hecho, comenzar con comidas preparadas congeladas como base de su cena, y complementarlas con platos acompañantes de frutas frescas, verduras, granos enteros y/o productos lácteos bajos en grasa puede posibilitar una comida balanceada rápida y sabrosa. ¡Y eso también funciona en su "noche de pizza"! "El logro de una comida balanceada no implica renunciar a sus alimentos favoritos como la pizza", asegura Bobby Parrish, presentador de la cadena Food Network y colaborador del programa Today. "Solo quiere decir que debe estar consciente del tamaño de las porciones y balancear su plato con un plato acompañante nutritivo de verduras y frutas frescas, y granos enteros". Según los Centros para el Control y la Prevención de Enfermedades (CDC, por sus siglas en inglés), varios estudios revelan que los estadounidenses enfrentan dificultades para cumplir con las normas dietéticas recomendadas. De hecho, nueve de cada diez personas no consumen las porciones diarias recomendadas de frutas y verduras. Una forma simple de perfeccionar la combinación de alimentos que consume es complementar uno que le agrada- como la pizza - con acompañantes a base de otros grupos de alimentos. El programa educativo Balance Your Plate de Nestlé USA tiene el propósito de ayudarle a conformar comidas deliciosas y nutritivas que incorporen alimentos congelados y frescos. El sitio web www.nestleusa.com/ balance proporciona información, consejos y recetas para que los consumidores puedan crear comidas fáciles y balanceadas que cumplan con las normas dietéticas. Cuando elija sus comidas congeladas favoritas como la pizza para crear el plato principal de su comida, puede lograr un

* Calcule su porción leyendo la Porción recomendada en la etiqueta de Datos de Nutrición (Nutrition Facts). Una idea fácil para las porciones de pizza es la siguiente: visualice su mano como si fuera una porción de pizza y propóngase disfrutar de "una o dos manos". * No tema coronar su pizza con verduras. Por ejemplo, corone su pizza con tomates y albahaca fresca en cuanto la saque del horno. * Las bolsas de ensaladas, espinacas o verduras combinadas son una forma idónea y rápida de incorporar el componente vegetariano a su plato. Parrish, quien ha colaborado con DiGiorno en la creación de originales recetas de platos acompañantes, ofrece estas dos recetas de ensaladas nutritivas y sabrosas para complementar su pizza favorita y crear una comida más balanceada: Ensalada de hierbas con quinoa y toronja Ingredientes: • 2 tazas de quinoa cocida • 1 toronja • 2 cucharaditas de pistachos, cortados en pedacitos y horneados (opcional) • 1-2 zanahorias pequeñas, ralladas • 1 cucharadita de perejil, y otra de tomillo frescos, picados en pedacitos • Ralladura de 1 limón • Zumo de medio limón • 1/4 cucharada de sal Kosher • Dos pizcas de polvo de granos de pimienta negra machacados • 2 cucharaditas de aceite de oliva extra virgen Preparación: Ponga a hervir 1 3/4 tazas de agua, y añádale 1/2 cucharada de sal. Viértale 3/4 de taza de quinoa cruda. Revuelva bien, reduzca a fuego lento y cocine sin tapar durante 20 minutos. Vigile la cocción de la quinoa; el agua debe ser absorbida y el grano debe estar esponjoso. Si no se ha ablandado la quinoa, añada otro 1/4 de taza de agua y cocine hasta que el agua se evapore y la quinoa parezca cocida. Ablande con un tenedor y deje enfriar hasta por dos horas. También puede hacerla con anticipación y refrigerarla hasta el día siguiente.

Coloque la quinoa cocida y fría en un tazón grande. Usando un cuchillo, pele la toronja y córtela en segmentos directamente sobre el tazón. Añada los ingredientes restantes y mezcle bien. Pruebe para verificar el sabor pues podría tener que añadirle más zumo de limón. Puede mantener la ensalada en el refrigerador hasta por tres días. Ensalada crocante de rodajas de manzana y lechuga romana Ingredientes: • 2 cogollos de lechuga romana • 1 manzana dulce, como Gala o Pink Lady • 2 cucharaditas de pasas • 1 cucharadita de cortados en rodajas

cebollinos

frescos,

• 2 cucharadas de semillas de ajonjolí • Para el aderezo: • 3 cucharaditas de tahini • 2 cucharadas de néctar de agave o de miel • 1/2 cucharada de pimentón ahumado • Ralladura y zumo de medio limón • 1 cucharada de aceite de oliva extra virgen • 1 cucharada de perejil acabado de picar en pedacitos • 1/4 cucharada de sal Kosher • Dos pizcas de polvo de granos de pimienta

negra machacados • 2-4 cucharaditas de agua Preparación: Use un rebanador o "mandolina" para cortar la manzana en rodajas finas. Colóquelas en un tazón grande y viértales un poco zumo de limón para que no se pongan de color marrón. Corte la lechuga romana en rebanadas finas y añádala al tazón con los ingredientes restantes de la ensalada. Deje reposar. Para elaborar el aderezo vierta todos los ingredientes menos el agua en un tazón pequeño y revuelva para combinar. Añada agua suficiente para ablandar la mezcla y pueda verterla posteriormente. Pruebe para verificar la sazón porque podría necesitar un poco más de sal o zumo de limón. Guarde el aderezo y la ensalada en el refrigerador hasta que vaya a servirlos. Justo antes de aderezar la ensalada, añada 1/4 cucharada de sal y las dos pizcas de polvo de granos de pimienta a la mezcla de lechuga romana. Revuelva la ensalada con el aderezo suficiente para que lo cubra todo, pero evitando sazonar excesivamente la ensalada. Una vez que la ensalada esté aderezada, debe consumirse y no podrá guardarse en el refrigerador.

PROYECTO DE LEY EN CALIFORNIA BUSCA QUE EMPLEADORES PROTEJAN A TRABAJADORES INDOCUMENTADOS juez y no dar declaraciones sin la presencia de un abogado de inmigración. El miedo también impacta el bolsillo El impacto del miedo en la vida de los inmigrantes no se reduce a esconderse. Muchas de sus decisiones financieras están amarradas al temor de que en cualquier momento pueden ser deportados de manera que no se desgastan en hacer reclamaciones salariales o de seguridad social si creen que eso los va a poner en mayores problemas.

Jenny Manrique Especial para El Observador

A menos que tengan una orden judicial, los agentes del Servicio de Inmigración y Control de Aduanas (ICE en inglés) no tienen derecho a entrar a los lugares de trabajo a buscar indocumentados y los empleadores tampoco tienen el deber de darles acceso a su propiedad. Así lo explicó Grisel Ruiz, abogada del Centro de Recursos Legales para Inmigrantes (ILRC en inglés) en una rueda de prensa telefónica organizada por New America Media y Ready California el pasado 11 de julio. Junto a otros expertos, Ruiz detalló cómo las actuales políticas migratorias están afectando a los inmigrantes y qué pueden hacer sus empleadores para protegerlos. “No hay ninguna obligación de cooperar con ICE y poner a sus empleados en riesgo”, aseguró Ruiz al hablar sobre las protecciones que están cursando a nivel legislativo en California para defender a esta población. La iniciativa AB 450 de autoría del asambleísta demócrata David Chiu propone que los empleadores tengan derecho a exigirle a los agentes de ICE una orden judicial antes de permitir su acceso a los lugares de trabajo. Conocida como la Ley de Protección al Trabajador Inmigrante, la AB 450 también contempla que sin orden judicial, los empleadores no tienen por qué entregar información privada como números de seguridad social de sus empleados u otros datos que a la larga pueden poner en peligro incluso a sus familias. Este proyecto de ley ya pasó en el Comité Judicial del Senado y se espera que a fines de agosto entre a debate en el Comité de Apropiaciones del Senado. Según Michael Young, abogado legislativo de la Federación de Trabajadores de California, que agrupa a 1200 sindicatos de trabajadores inmigrantes en el estado, aunque "no podemos regular la ley federal

de inmigración, sí podemos regular el comportamiento del empleador ". Young reconoce que hay muchos abusos cuando los empleados son indocumentados ya que ellos tienden a recibir salarios bajos y no presentar quejas, lo que no quiere decir que no gocen de la protección de las leyes de trabajo. “Para eso existe la Comisionada de Trabajo que aplica las leyes laborales y protege a los trabajadores sin importar su estatus migratorio. Es a ella a quien se le debe notificar si hay autoridades han intentado hacer redadas irregulares”. Cerca de 2,6 millones de inmigrantes indocumentados viven en California, y uno de cada 10 trabajadores en el estado es indocumentado, según las cifras compartidas por Young. Los números varían según la industria: el 45% de los trabajadores agrícolas en California están indocumentados mientras entre los trabajadores de la construcción, ese número es el 21%.

Así lo explicó Cal Soto, coordinador nacional de derechos de los trabajadores de la Red Nacional de Organizaciones Laborales (NDLON en inglés), quien dice que esta conducta ha tenido un impacto en los salarios no solo de los indocumentados sino de la fuerza laboral inmigrante en general. “Hemos visto la normalización de la violencia contra jornaleros inmediatamente después de la elección”, contó Soto. “Muchos empleadores se sienten respaldados por el gobierno federal y abusan de un empleado sin papeles. Ellos por su parte prefieren quedarse callados más si son los que proveen el pan a su familia. Evitan discusiones y restringen al máximo estar en público” El otro impacto evidente tiene que ver en sus formas de consumo. Muchos inmigrantes no compran vivienda o no invierten en negocios cuando sienten que el fantasma de la deportación los acecha. Según Mohan Kanungo, director de programas y participación del Fondo de

Activos de la Misión, (MAF en inglés) proteger el dinero y los bienes en tiempos de incertidumbre es vital para las familias inmigrantes. Su organización lanzó un Plan de Acción de Emergencia Financiera para Inmigrantes, que les ofrece consejos prácticos en tres pasos para atender los aspectos financieros inherentes a la deportación. “En primer lugar las familias deben tomar medidas para proteger su dinero”, dijo Kanungo. Esto significa mantener una cuenta de cheques para tener acceso a fondos cuando sea necesario y una banca en línea por si hay que darle el poder de manejo a algún familiar. El experto recomienda estar al día con las facturas para evitar cargos por deudas. “En segundo lugar las familias deben proteger sus pertenencias, incluyendo su coche, propiedad y negocios”. Para ello es importante darle poder a un abogado que puede ser encontrado a través de las barras de abogados que prestan servicios gratuitos para las comunidades de bajos recursos. “En tercer lugar las familias deben crear un plan de emergencia que les permita proteger su crédito y crear unas metas de ahorro como separar el dinero suficiente para un mes de comestibles y para pagar lo que pueda costar la defensa legal si alguien es deportado ”, dijo Kanungo. Aunque todo esto suena abrumante, “hay que entender lo que supone mantener un hogar con la pérdida de ingresos de un miembro de la familia", concluyó el experto.

Ruiz de ILRC recordó que aunque se ha visto un aumento de las redadas de ICE en las comunidades inmigrantes, e incluso mayor colaboración entre las autoridades locales y federales para encontrar a quienes tienen órdenes de deportación, “la administración de Trump no tiene los recursos suficientes para deportar a 11 millones de personas”. “La posibilidad de que un inmigrante tenga una interacción con ICE al azar es muy baja, así que debemos afrontar estos temas más con empoderamiento que con miedo, no podemos quedarnos en las sombras”, aseguró la abogada. “Incluso si un inmigrante indocumentado es detenido por ICE, muchas veces tiene la oportunidad de luchar por su caso". La experta no quiso desconocer el hecho de que los agentes de ICE siguen hacienda búsquedas individualizadas, pero destacó la validez de derechos constitucionales como guardar silencio, no abrir las puertas de la casa a agentes que no tengan la orden de un

A LOOK INTO TRUMP’S TRANSGENDER BAN Estephany Haro El Observador President Trump announced on Wednesday July 26th via twitter that he would be banning all transgender citizens from joining the military of the United States in all capacities, unleashing controversy across the country from those affected directed and from the people that supports the transgender community. “After consultation with my Generals and military experts, please be advised that the United States Government will not accept or allow transgender individuals to serve in any capacity in the U.S. Military. Our military must be focused on decisive and overwhelming victory and cannot be burdened with the tremendous medical costs and disruption that transgender in the military would entail. Thank you”  President Trump tweeted. “It makes me sad but mainly I'm irritated. I'm sad because transgender people so often feel excluded from systems in society like schools, bathrooms, and sports,” said Todd Miller, a member of the transgender community. “To many people, serving in the military is an incredibly honorable thing to do, and to not allow a transgender citizen who believes that to serve their country is just plain wrong,” Following his announcement, White House Press Secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, gave a press conference where she said, “this was a decision on what’s best for the military.” However, she did not clarify if this ban will affect transgender people already serving in

the U.S. armed forces. “I do feel attacked. I'm lucky enough to live in Bay Area where the inclusion of LGBTQ people is widely accepted. Trump's office clearly doesn't care about the issues faced by LGBTQ Americans,” Miller said. “This was made clear when they removed the LGBTQ rights page from the official White House website.” During his campaign, the president said “thank you to the LBGT community, I will fight for you,” in a tweet of June last year and was photographed with an LGBT flag during an event. Shortly after his announcement, hundreds of people in San Francisco rallied to protest Wednesday evening against the ban. “I personally didn't plan to enlist in the military, and it seems unlikely I will now. I had considered becoming involved with the military after college to pursue medicine and health care around the globe because they are famous for comprehensive programs like that, but given the current attitude towards transgender people- that may be too challenging,” Miller added. It is interesting to note that In 2014 it was estimated that annual transitionrelated healthcare costs were less than 10 percent of what the military spent on prescriptions for Viagra, an erectile dysfunction treatment. Meanwhile, Miller has a message for all those afraid during this time.“You don't have anything to be afraid of in regards to the military. If you were planning on serving, the numerous human rights groups in America will probably be able to uphold your right to enlist.”

NEW YORK – New Yorkers took to the streets Wednesday to protest President Trump's announcement that transgender people will not be allowed to serve in the U.S. military. Civil liberties organizations were quick to condemn the policy shift outlined in three early-morning posts to the president's Twitter account. Equality New York, an LGBT rights group, quickly organized a protest rally outside the Times Square military recruiting station where Gabriel Blau, co-chair of the group, said they would deliver a clear message to the president. "These are our loved ones, our neighbors, our friends, ourselves," Blau says. "And those who choose to serve our country and put their lives at risk in the military deserve to be respected and deserve to be seen." The president claimed in his tweets that the military "cannot be burdened with the tremendous medical costs and disruption" that transgender service members would entail.

But Blau points out that transgender people already are serving without disruption in the military, and the medical costs are not a burden. "RAND Corporation did a study on this and showed the costs of providing trans-specific health care in the military is negligible," Blau notes. "So both of Trump's reasons are proven to be false." While many conservatives have praised Trump's announcement, Republican Sen. John McCain has condemned it, saying anyone who is fit to serve should be allowed to do so. Trump's decision reportedly caught the Pentagon by surprise. While a tweet may express an opinion, it is not an executive order, so how this policy reversal will be carried out is still in question. But Blau is certain it will meet with resistance. "We all found out about this today," adds Blau. "I can't speak to any cases that may or may not be planned but I'm sure that our community will be challenging this in court." The American Civil Liberties Union's LGBT and HIV Project says it is examining all its options for fighting the ban.

GR AHAM, DURBIN INTRODUCE BIPARTISAN DRE AM ACT Would Give Immigrant Students a Path to Citizenship WASHINGTON—U.S. Senators Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Dick Durbin (D-IL) today introduced the Dream Act, which would allow immigrant students who grew up in the United States to earn lawful permanent residence and eventually American citizenship. These young people, known as Dreamers, have lived in America since they were children, built their lives here, and are American in every way except for their immigration status.  However, under current law they live in fear of deportation and have no chance to ever become citizens and fulfill their potential.  “These young people have lived in America since they were children and built their lives here,” said Graham.  “There is support across the country for allowing Dreamers -- who have records of achievement -- to stay, work, and reach their full potential.  We should not squander these young people’s talents and penalize our own nation.  Our legislation would allow these young

Senator Graham for partnering with me in this bipartisan effort.” The Dream Act would allow these young people to earn lawful permanent residence and eventually American citizenship if they: • Are longtime residents who came to the U.S. as children; • Graduate from high school or obtain a GED; • Pursue higher education, work lawfully for at least three years, or serve in the military;

people – who grew up in the United States – to contribute more fully to the country they love. They have a powerful story to tell and this may be an area where both parties can come together.” “Hundreds of thousands of talented young people who have grown up in our country are at risk of deportation to countries they barely remember. 

I’ll do everything in my power as a United States Senator to protect these Dreamers and give them the chance to become American citizens so they can contribute to a brighter future for all Americans,” said Durbin. “I first introduced the Dream Act 16 years ago and I’ll continue fighting until it becomes the law of the land. I thank

GRAHAM, DURBIN INTRODUCEN PROYECTO DE LEY BIPARTIDISTA QUE DARIA UN CAMINO A LA CIUDADANIA A LOS ESTUDIANTES WASHINGTON— Los senadores estadounidenses Lindsey Graham (R-SC) y Dick Durbin (D-IL) introdujeron hoy un proyecto de ley conocido como el Dream Act, que permitiría que estudiantes inmigrantes que han crecido en los Estados Unidos obtengan estatus legal y eventualmente ciudadanía. Estos jóvenes, conocidos como Dreamers, han vivido en los Estados Unidos desde que eran niños, construyeron sus vidas aquí, y son Americanos en todos los sentidos, excepto por su estatus migratorio. Sin embargo, bajo la ley actual viven con miedo de ser deportados y no tienen la oportunidad de hacerse ciudadanos y de realizar su potencial. “Estos jóvenes han vivido en los Estados Unidos desde que eran niños y han construido sus vidas en este país,” dijo Graham. “Existe apoyo en todo el país para que estos Dreamers – quienes tienen inmensos logros – se queden, trabajen, y realicen su potencial. No debemos de desperdiciar los talentos de estos jóvenes y penalizar a nuestra propia nación. Nuestro proyecto de ley permitiría que estos jóvenes – quienes han crecido en los Estados Unidos – contribuyan más plenamente al país que aman. Ellos tienen increíbles historias que contarnos y esto es algo donde ambos partidos nos podemos unir.” "Cientos de miles de jóvenes talentosos que han crecido en nuestro país corren el riesgo de ser

deportados a países que apenas conocen. Haré todo lo que pueda como Senador de los Estados Unidos para proteger a estos Dreamers y darles la oportunidad de convertirse en ciudadanos para que puedan contribuir a un futuro mejor para todos," dijo Durbin. "Primero introduje el Dream Act hace 16 años y continuaré luchando hasta que se convierta en ley. Le doy las gracias al Senador Graham por trabajar conmigo en este esfuerzo bipartidista." El Dream Act permitiría que estos jóvenes ganen residencia permanente y eventualmente ciudadanía americana si: • Son residentes de largo plazo que llegaron a los Estados Unidos cuando eran niños; • Se gradúan de la escuela secundaria u obtienen un Certificado de Desarrollo de Educación General (GED); • Están matriculados en educación superior, trabajan legalmente por lo menos tres años, u forman parte del ejército militar; • Pasan una revisión de antecedentes y pagan una cuota de solicitud razonable; • Demuestran dominio del inglés y conocimiento de la historia de los Estados Unidos; y • No han cometido una felonía u otro delito grave y no constituyen una amenaza para la seguridad nacional la seguridad pública.

Verano junto al mar El horario extendido de verano se traduce en más tiempo para vivir la diversión en el Monterey Bay Aquarium. Atardeceres en la Bahía Inicia tus fines de semana desde temprano. Disfruta del horario extendido, música en vivo y de increíbles manjares los días viernes (sólo en julio) y sábados (de julio a septiembre).

Recorridos diarios Aparta tiempo para hacer divertidos recorridos que te permitirán aprender cómo cuidamos y alimentamos a animales como l as nutrias marinas y los tiburones. Descubre qué se necesita para

operar un acuario de clase mundial con un vistazo del otro lado de nuestras exhibiciones.

Exploradores bajo el Agua Los niños entre las edades de 8 a 13 años podrán encontrarse cara a cara con la vida marina buceando en la superficie de nuestra Gran Alberca Intermareal, guiados por el experimentado personal del Acuario. No se necesita experiencia, ¡sólo sentido de aventura!

Pasa la noche en el Acuario Duerme bajo las estrellas (de mar) junto a tu exhibición favorita. Disfruta de programas especiales y refrigerios, además del desayuno y entrada al Acuario el siguiente día.

Súbete al trolley Súbete al trolley de MST para que te dé un aventón corto, divertido y gratuito al Acuario, además de llevarte a distintos destinos del centro de Monterey. El trolley eléctrico pasa varias veces al día durante todo el verano.
