DACA'S TICKING TIME BOMB WILL FORCE CONGRESS TO ENACT LAWS OR NOT BE RE-ELECTED DURING THE 2018 MIDTERM ELECTION

Hilbert Morales EL OBSERVADOR President Trump's assignment to Attorney General Jeff Sessions to do the highly telegraphed DACA curtailment announcement was really an indication of how this President does everything possible to stay in the limelight. This time Trump really did something which the U.S. Congress did not want at all given their legislative gridlock. While many are organizing opposition or support events such as pubic marches, conducting Town Halls, and preparing to go to court to declare this DACA executive action unconstitutional, recall that when former President Obama announced this DACA program, he indicated that this DACA program might be unconstitutional, but it was allowed to stand and become implemented. That is how legal precedents are established. President Trump may have given the U.S. Congress a time bomb with a six-month fuse. That is a lot of time during which the U.S. Congress may finally be forced to address the need to agree upon a very essential 2017 Comprehensive Immigration Reform Act. I have been following immigration issues since I learned in

1960 that my elder sister Rose had come into the U.S.A. with my parents when they legally immigrated from Mexico during 1910. Rose is now a naturalized citizen as are my brothers Seville and Andres (both World War II veterans; now deceased). Trump has done America a favor because the U.S. Congress...both the Senate and the House of Representatives, are controlled by a Republican Party majority. If the Republicans want to continue to control both chambers of the U.S. Congress, then Republican cliques need to set their differences aside for now in order to address this essential 2017 Comprehensive Immigration Reform which will deal with DACA, foreign guest worker issues (campesinos and construction workers) and the High-Tech H-1B Visas desired by Silicon Valley firms. Hurricane Harvey has also done its devastation at a propitious time. Congress will have to deal with allocation of billions in aid to restore the Texas-Louisiana area. The area impacted adds up to being the 22nd largest global economy. While the focus of mainstream media has been on family's being displaced by f loods, the underlying issue is that 95% of the destroyed homes will need to be rebuilt. After Hurricane Katrina some 12 years ago, it was the illegal Mexican construction work force which did the bulk of the reconstruction. Will this same

skilled construction work force be denied another opportunity to do work which re-establishes an important part of the American domestic economy and its related housing amenities? It would be political suicide if Congress did not find a way to let this skilled Mexican construction work force to do its thing again. The same logic applies to the skilled agricultural work force (Mexican Campesinos) which are needed by American agricultural factory farms where not everything can be done by automated machinery at harvest-time.

Congress?

It is time for We, The People to insist that Congress do the job which only they can do constitutionally...which is to craft the legislation which does the greatest good for the greatest number...which includes We, The People. It is time to take care of We, The People...not special interests nor those with briefcases full of DARK MONEY. Congressional elected officials must begin to take appropriate actions which will speak louder than their political posturing rhetoric. Voters will take note of their actions within the next six months when they go to the polls during 2018.

Therefore, it is time to focus advocacy on the U.S. Congressional leadership to encourage doing what is right: craft and pass the 2017 Comprehensive Immigration Reform Legislation which mitigates the inhumane cruelty and exploitation.

Is it possible advocates for DACA, The Dreamers Act, H-1B Visa programs; Agricultural guest workers programs to all agree to act in solidarity to increase the impact of their resources, ideas and energy upon the U.S.

who are unprincipled, amoral, and greedy.

The U.S. Constitution clearly gives the U.S. Congress the responsibility to craft and enact legislation which is presented to the President for his approval or veto. Can all the many splintered special interests who want to help the undocumented agree to look at the big picture and to get together in partnership with all those other groups who want justice, fair wages, worker's safety issues, etc.? Solidarity at this point is essential if this opportunity is to be taken advantage of.

The Trump Administration has focused a large amount of racial profiling upon the Mexican cohort which is only half of all 11 million undocumented present in America. Hurricane Harvey may have limited the willingness of Congress to allocate money to build THAT WALL (which is a waste of resources). Let’s advocate for a systemic improvement of all that is wrong which causes and supports continued exploitation of the undocumented simply because these work force members have no legal status and therefore may be taken advantage of by those

According to Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi, “On 09.08.17, House Republicans blocked the immediate consideration of the bipartisan DREAM Act and signed their names to President Trump’s cowardly assault on (800,000) innocent DREAMers across America (225,000 reside in CA). These DACA recipients had the courage and patriotism to step out of the shadows, but (233) House Republicans don’t have the courage or decency to hold an up or down vote on the DREAM Act. Our American values, our faith, and our basic human decency demand that we prevent the senseless deportation of hundreds of thousands of patriotic young Mexican America youth brought here as minors by their parents or guardians and who have grown up in this nation.” Let’s do it right for a change…. America will need all those undocumented workers, especially Mexican construction workers, to rebuild Port Arthur, Beaumont, and Houston, TX…. let’s advocate for the U.S. Congress doing the right thing…which is to give these productive illegal undocumented workers the legal status which they merit. While the emotional commotion reflexive reaction may be caused by this DACA curtailment, there is much more at stake.

DECISIÓN INJUSTIFICABLE Por José López Zamorano La Red Hispana La decisión del presidente Donald Trump de poner en marcha el inexorable proceso de terminación del Programa de Acción Diferida para Llegados en la Infancia (DACA) es, desde cualquier punto de vista, miope, inmoral e injustificable. No solos se castiga a 800,000 jóvenes por los “pecados” de los padres, sino que Estados Unidos se dispara en el pie al poner al borde de la deportación a cientos de miles de sus más patrióticos miembros de su sociedad, Porque los “dreamers” han demostrado con su ejemplo personal que son tan americanos como cualquiera, salvo que no tienen un papel para probarlo legalmente: Poseen los valores del esfuerzo, la dedicación y el sacrificio

para contribuir no sólo a su bienestar, sino al de sus comunidades y del país que en muchos casos es el único que conocen.

las pérdidas que sufriría la economía estadounidense a raíz de la pérdida de esta mano de obra para sectores claves del país.

Aún desde una perspectiva estrictamente económica, es auto-derrotista para los Estados Unidos privarse del capital humano que representan estos cientos de miles que se han formado y estudiado en el país, muchos de los cuales cuentan no sólo con licenciaturas, sino con maestrías y doctorados, y laboran en algunas de las más grandes empresas de Estados Unidos como Apple.

Sólo California, el estado más poblado del país y que alberga al más alto número de dreamers, podría perder más de 11,000 millones de dólares.

Un estudio del Centro para el Progreso Americano estima que el Producto Interno Bruto de los Estados Unidos se reduciría en más de 400,000 millones de dólares en un lapso de 10 años, por

Por ello tiene razón el ex presidente Barack Obama cuando afirma que la decisión es errática y cruel, pues Estados Unidos se lastima a sí mismo cuando coloca como blanco de sus políticas a quienes deberían ser considerados como ejemplos positivos de entereza, perseverancia y valor. Tuve oportunidad de hablar con varios “dreamers” mexicanos que llegaron desde varias partes del país a protestar a

la Casa Blanca. Es obvio que en muchos de ellos pesaba el sentido de preocupación por el futuro que les depara a ellos y a sus familias, pero también vi en ellos el rasgo de personalidad que los ha hecho exitosos pese a la adversidad. Todos están optimistas que tienen la razón moral de su lado, que su lucha para lograr una solución permanente, que harán todo lo que tengan que hacer para agitar la conciencia del país y presionar al Congreso a que apruebe un alivio migratorio duradero durante el periodo de espera. Tienen de su lado al público estadounidense, sólo resta que los legisladores, republicanos y demócratas, se pongan a la altura de los dreamers. Para más información visita www. laredhispana.org.

5 MANERAS DE AYUDAR A LOS NIÑOS A TENER UN BUEN COMIENZO DE CLASES

El inicio del año escolar no se limita a preparar las mochilas y útiles escolares. También es el momento en que los padres se aseguran tener lo necesario para garantizar que sus hijos estén listos para el éxito en su nuevo curso. Según una encuesta nacional realizada a padres con hijos que cursan estudios de preescolar a octavo grado por Learning Heroes, una organización de padres, los participantes aseguraron sentir inquietud en lo referente a la crianza de sus hijos, la presión de los compañeros de escuela, así como la felicidad de sus hijos, un aspecto que revelaron como su preocupación principal. De hecho, tres de cada cinco encuestados le otorgaron mayor importancia al hecho de que sus hijos fueran felices y no se sintieran demasiado estresados, en comparación con el logro de un buen rendimiento académico. En cuanto a los resultados académicos, la mayoría de los padres participantes- nueve de cada diez - consideraron que sus hijos tenían un nivel de rendimiento igual o superior al que se requiere en el grado que cursan. Sin embargo, la realidad es que solo el 33 por ciento aproximadamente de los estudiantes en los Estados Unidos tienen un rendimiento académico al nivel que necesitan para tener éxito escolar. "Para mí, como madre de dos chicos adolescentes, esta desconexión es una dolorosa advertencia", afirmó Bibb Hubbard, fundadora de Learning Heroes. "Los padres participan plenamente en todo lo que concierne a la felicidad y el éxito de sus hijos, y son responsables del buen rendimiento escolar de sus hijos. Está claro que la mayoría de los padres carece de una visión precisa del progreso de sus hijos, pues no reciben la información clara, comprensible y actuable que necesitan para

respaldar mejor el aprendizaje y crecimiento de sus hijos". Para ayudar a los padres a lograr que sus hijos estén listos para comenzar el curso escolar con el pie derecho, Learning Heroes creo cinco medidas fáciles que pueden tomar para tener una visión más exacta del progreso académico de sus hijos. Comienza firmemente. Como parte de tu rutina de regreso a la escuela, ayuda a tu hijo a estar listo para el nuevo grado. Tú eres el experto en todo lo relacionado con tu hijo. Visita Ruta al futuro, creada por Learning Heroes a partir de las sugerencias de muchos padres, para saber qué se espera de tu hijo este curso, y cómo apoyarlo en casa. Revisa los resultados del examen estatal de tu hijo del año pasado. Si aún no los has recibido, pídelos al maestro o escuela de tu hijo. Analiza esa información y las calificaciones de fin de curso del niño correspondientes al año pasado, para determinar si tiene un buen rendimiento y en qué áreas necesita más apoyo. Busca consejo. Cuando te reúnas con el nuevo maestro o maestra de tu hijo, lleva los resultados del examen estatal del curso pasado, y averigua qué significado tienen para el curso que tienen por delante. Pregúntale al niño sobre qué y por qué siente entusiasmo y nerviosismo, y comunícaselo al maestro. Hazle saber tus objetivos y expectativas con respecto al aprendizaje y crecimiento de tu hijo para el próximo curso. Averigua lo que se espera de tu hijo, y qué puedes hacer en casa para ayudarlo. ¡Hazlo divertido! Tú eres el experto en tu hijo y puedes ayudar para que aprender sea divertido. Lean juntos para descubrir los temas que le interesan a tu hijo. Busca problemas matemáticos en la vida cotidiana, y conviértelos en un juego. Práctica la substracción, las unidades de medida y la división cuando cocinen juntos o mientras compran víveres en

el mercado. Felicítalo por el trabajo arduo. Nuestras actitudes sobre el aprendizaje -llamadas "mentalidades"- repercuten en la manera en que nuestros hijos aprenden, en cómo se sienten cuando cometen errores y en su confianza en sí mismos. Promueve una "mentalidad de crecimiento" en el hogar para que tu hijo vea que el trabajo arduo es lo que lleva a tener éxito. Por ejemplo, concéntrate en el esfuerzo específico y en lo que tu hijo está aprendiendo. Esto hará que se sienta un poco menos nervioso por las nuevas tareas o asignaturas. Fomenta también las habilidades para la vida. Cuando se trate del potencial y de la felicidad de tu hijo, enfócate en el panorama completo. Las fortalezas, como ser capaz de comunicarse,

resolver problemas, ser paciente y actuar de manera independiente, ayudarán a tu hijo en la escuela y en la vida. Habla abiertamente con él sobre cómo se siente y cómo reacciona ante situaciones en la escuela, en el patio de recreo y en casa. El regreso a la escuela es una ocasión importante para hijos y padres, y los cinco consejos anteriores pueden contribuir a darle un sólido comienzo al curso escolar. Si cada día tomas medidas - grandes o pequeñas - para respaldar el aprendizaje de tu hijo, podrás ser un héroe o heroína del aprendizaje.

TIPS ON DONATING TO TEX AS IN THE AFTERMATH OF HURRICANE HARVEY posted requests for assistance.

Rebecca Harpster Golden Gate Better Business Bureau

6. Phases of disaster relief. Remember that every disaster has several phases – rescue, emergency relief, and recovery. Each part relies on public support and continuing funding for success. The need for donations doesn’t stop when the headlines do.

The Better Business Bureau (BBB) and BBB Wise Giving Alliance are advising people to help as much as they can in the Hurricane Harvey relief efforts, but to do so with caution and make sure their donations get to the people who need it most. “The devastation caused by Hurricane Harvey prompts us to do what we can to help as soon as possible,” said H. Art Taylor, president and CEO of BBB Wise Giving Alliance, “but donors need to be aware of some key cautions so that their generosity will get to those in need quickly.” BBBs are already seeing crowdfunding appeals of a dubious nature, and in the days ahead expect to see “storm chasers” looking to make a quick buck off of clean-up efforts (learn more at bbb.org/ storm). Consumers can report suspected scams to BBB Scam Tracker at bbb.org/scamtracker, or to the Texas Attorney General’s hotline (800621-0508 or consumeremergency@nag.texas. gov).

7. Recovery time line. For many communities, recovery will be a long-term activity that can take many months or years to accomplish, depending on the extent of the damage. Those truly concerned about helping communities bounce back will have many opportunities to help. Photo Credit: Pixabay

presence in the impacted areas. Unless the charity already has staff in the affected areas, it may be difficult to bring in new aid workers to provide assistance quickly. See if the charity’s website clearly describes what the charity can do to address immediate needs.

1. Verify the trustworthiness of soliciting relief organizations by visiting Give.org to access free reports that specify if the charity meets the 20 BBB Standards for Charity Accountability.

3. Find out if the charity is providing direct aid or raising money for other groups. Some charities may be raising money to pass along to relief organizations. If so, you may want to consider “avoiding the middleman” and giving directly to those that have a presence in the region. Or, at a minimum, check out the ultimate recipients of these donations to see whether they are equipped to provide aid effectively.

2. See if the charity has an on-the-ground

4. Be cautious about gifts of clothing, food or

Keep the following tips in mind to help avoid questionable appeals for support:

other in-kind donations. In-kind drives for food and clothing, while well intentioned, may not necessarily be the quickest way to help those in need – unless the organization has the staff and infrastructure to distribute such aid properly. Ask the charity about its transportation and distribution plans. Be wary of those who are not experienced in disaster relief assistance. 5. Understand crowdfunding. Keep in mind that some crowdfunding sites do very little vetting of individuals who decide to post for assistance after a disaster, and it is often difficult for donors to verify the trustworthiness of crowdfunding requests for support. If you decide to contribute via crowdfunding, it is probably best to give to people who you personally know that have

8. Disaster planning. Although it may seem obvious, no one wants to experience a repeat performance of a disaster. Areas that work toward recovery will probably also need to develop plans to better respond to a similar storm in the future. Even those that already had measures in place can find ways to improve based on experience. For more information, and for a list of trustworthy BBB Accredited Charities (i.e., organizations that meet the 20 BBB Standards of Charity Accountability) that are raising funds for Hurricane Harvey relief assistance, please visit go.bbb.org/hurricaneharvey. You can reach your BBB at info@bbbemail.org or (510) 844-2000, or by visiting goldengate. bbb.org.

CONSEJOS SOBRE DONACIONES PARA EL HURACÁN HARVEY 2. Averigüe si la organización tiene una presencia en las áreas afectadas. A menos que la caridad ya tenga personal en las áreas afectadas, puede ser difícil traer nuevos trabajadores humanitarios para proporcionar asistencia rápidamente. Vea si el sitio web de la caridad describe claramente lo que la caridad puede hacer para atender las necesidades inmediatas.

Rebecca Harpster Golden Gate Better Business Bureau El Better Business Bureau (BBB) y BBB Wise Giving Alliance están aconsejando a la gente que les ayuden tanto como puedan en los esfuerzos de alivio del Huracán Harvey, pero para hacerlo cuidado y asegurarse de que sus donaciones lleguen a las personas que más lo necesitan. "La devastación causada por el huracán Harvey nos pide que hagamos lo que podamos para ayudar lo antes posible", dijo H. Art Taylor, presidente y CEO del BBB Wise Giving Alliance, "pero los donantes deben ser conscientes de algunas precauciones clave para que su generosidad llegue a los necesitados rápidamente. "

BBB ya está viendo apelaciones de crowdfunding sospechosas, y en los próximos días y semanas espera ver a estafas de “cazadores de tormentas” que buscan dinero. Los consumidores pueden reportar estafas al Rastreador de Estafas de BBB (bbb.org/scamtracker) o a la línea directa del Procurador General de Texas (800-6210508 o consumeremergency@nag.texas.gov). BBB Wise Giving Alliance sugiere que los donantes mantengan los siguientes consejos en mente antes de donar a las víctimas del huracán Harvey: 1. Verifique la confiabilidad de solicitar organizaciones de ayuda. Visite Give.org para acceder a informes gratuitos que especifiquen si la organización cumple con los 20 Estándares del BBB Responsabilidad de la Caridad.

3. Averigüe si la organización benéfica está proporcionando ayuda directa o recaudando fondos para otros grupos. Algunas organizaciones pueden recaudar dinero para pasar a organizaciones de socorro. Si es así, es posible que desee considerar "evitar el intermediario" y dar directamente a los que tienen una presencia en la región. O, como mínimo, echa un vistazo a los beneficiarios finales de estas donaciones para ver si están equipados para proporcionar ayuda eficazmente. 4. Tenga cuidado con los regalos de ropa, comida u otras donaciones en especie. Las unidades en especie para alimentos y ropa, aunque bien intencionadas, no necesariamente pueden ser la forma más rápida de ayudar a los necesitados, a menos que la organización tenga el personal y la infraestructura para distribuir dicha ayuda adecuadamente. Pregúntele a la caridad sobre sus planes de transporte y distribución. Tenga cuidado con aquellos que no tienen experiencia en asistencia para casos de desastre. 5. Entender crowdfunding. Tenga en cuenta que algunos sitios de crowdfunding hacen muy poca investigación de las personas que deciden enviar asistencia después de un desastre, y a

menudo es difícil para los donantes verificar la confiabilidad de las solicitudes de ayuda de crowdfunding. Si decide contribuir a través de crowdfunding, probablemente sea mejor dar a personas que usted conoce personalmente que han publicado solicitudes de asistencia. 6. Fases del alivio de desastres. Recuerde que cada desastre tiene varias fases: rescate, socorro de emergencia y recuperación. Cada parte depende del apoyo público y de la financiación continua para el éxito. La necesidad de donaciones no se detiene cuando los titulares lo hacen. 7. Línea de tiempo de recuperación. Para muchas comunidades, la recuperación será una actividad a largo plazo que puede tomar muchos meses o años para lograr, dependiendo de la extensión del daño. Aquellos que realmente están preocupados por ayudar a las comunidades a recuperarse tendrán muchas oportunidades de ayudar. 8. Planificación de desastres. A pesar de que puede parecer obvio, nadie quiere experimentar una repetición de un desastre. Las áreas que trabajan hacia la recuperación probablemente también necesitarán desarrollar planes para responder mejor a una tormenta similar en el futuro. Incluso aquellos que ya tuvieron medidas en su lugar pueden encontrar maneras de mejorar basado en la experiencia. Puede ponerse en contacto con su BBB a través de info@bbbemail.org o (510) 844-2000, o en goldengate.bbb.org.

MILLENNIALS PREFER HEALTHY HABITS, LESS LIKELY TO CHOOSE OPIOIDS TO MANAGE PAIN September’s Pain Awareness Month. The survey also found that millennials were half as likely as baby boomers to have turned to opioids to manage pain, and 1 in 5 millennials regret that they used the highly addictive painkillers. But while the results reflect a positive trend, they also reveal a knowledge gap. The survey found many millennials were:

BPT Often spending their days hunched over phones, tablets or computers and their free time at spin class or playing sports, millennials are the next generation poised to experience chronic pain. Even at their young age, millennials say acute and chronic pain are already interfering with their quality of life. But while older generations are more likely to turn to medication for pain relief, millennials’ preferred method is lifestyle changes such as exercising, eating right, quitting smoking and losing weight, according to a nationwide survey commissioned by the American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) in conjunction with

* More likely to obtain opioids inappropriately. One in 10 millennials (ages 18-36) obtained opioids through another household member’s prescription, compared to 3 percent of Gen Xers (37-52), 1 percent of baby boomers (5371) and none of the silent generation (72-92). * More likely to think it’s OK to take an opioid without a prescription. Nearly 30 percent of millennials thought it was OK to take an opioid without a prescription, compared to 20 percent of Gen Xers, 12 percent of baby boomers and 3 percent of the silent generation. * AND less likely to dispose of leftover opioids safely. In fact, 1 in 5 millennials said they “did not know” the best way to safely dispose of opioids, and only 37 percent were aware that a collection center at a local police station, hospital pharmacy or drug store was the best method of disposal. “It’s encouraging that millennials see the value of opting for safer and often more

effective methods of managing pain,” said ASA President Jeffrey Plagenhoef, M.D. “But clearly they are in need of further education because using opioids initially to treat pain can turn into a lifelong struggle with addiction.” Learning how to manage pain is vital: 75 percent of millennials say they have had acute pain (which comes on suddenly and lasts less than three months) and nearly 60 percent have experienced chronic pain (which lasts longer than three months). The source of that pain is reflective of millennials’ lifestyle, including technology use (leading to eye strain, neck aches, hand or finger pain, wrist or arm pain), migraines and sports injuries. It’s important to address pain before it interferes with quality of life by seeing the right specialist for pain management. Whatever the age, people in severe pain who don’t find relief through lifestyle changes should see a physician who specializes in pain management, such as a physician anesthesiologist who has the expertise and training to best help manage pain. To help all generations cope with pain, ASA offers the following tips: • Take a break from devices and gaming. To avoid aches from smartphone, tablet and gaming overuse, use devices at eye level instead of looking down for long periods of time, which puts strain on your neck and back. To avoid

digital eye strain, look away from the screen every 20 seconds and don’t sit too close to the screen. • Don’t be a weekend warrior. Whether you plan to hit the basketball court after many years away or do CrossFit weekly, ease into it. Warm up your muscles and stretch to avoid pain and injury. If you think you’ve been injured, see a pain management specialist right away. • Remember to move. Whether you’re in the library studying or at a desk job, get up and move at least once an hour, if not more. • Get healthy. Take charge of your health now and engage in healthy lifestyle changes before chronic pain sets in. Maintain a healthy weight and eat a balanced diet. Quit smoking. • Take and dispose of opioids the right way. If prescribed opioids, ask your physician questions about taking them appropriately. If you have leftover opioids, dispose of them at a collection center at a local police station, hospital pharmacy or drugstore. This will ensure that others who have not been prescribed the opioids do not have access to them. For more information about pain treatment and the importance of seeing a physician anesthesiologist, visit the ASA’s pain management page at www.asahq.org/ whensecondscount.

LEGISLADORES LATINOS INDIGNADOS CON ELIMINACIÓN DE DACA exitoso.

Photo Credit: Pixabay

WASHINGTON - El Caucus Nacional de Legisladores Estatales Hispanos (NHCSL, por sus siglas en inglés), que representa los intereses de sobre 400 legisladores estatales de ambos partidos en legislaturas estatales alrededor del país, expresó su indignación esta semana luego que la Administración decidiera eliminar el programa "Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals", o DACA por sus siglas en inglés. DACA ha ayudado a más de 800,000 "Dreamers" a permanecer en este país y contribuir a que sea

"Los miembros de NHCSL estamos indignados de que esta Administración haya decidido terminar un programa que ha permitido que personas que fueron traídas a este país de niños puedan ir a la escuela, tener un empleo e impulsar nuestra economía y puedan quedarse aquí sin miedo a ser deportados. El miedo y la ansiedad que esta decisión le va a infligir a las comunidades inmigrantes – muchos de los cuales tienen familiares que son ciudadanos de los Estados Unidos – es contrario a los valores sobre los cuales se fundó este país. El Congreso no debiera esperar hasta el final del período de seis meses que tardará la terminación del programa para actuar. Cada día que pasa es un día más de caos y de incertidumbre laboral para patronos y empleados. Por lo tanto, el Congreso debería aprobar el Proyecto de Ley 'DREAM' por vía rápida. Cualquier cosa menos sería una traición a la confianza que los residentes DACAmentados depositaron en el gobierno estadounidense", dijo el Presidente de NHCSL, el Representante Ángel Cruz (PA). La Secretaria de NHCSL, la Representante Ángela Romero (UT), dijo: "Luego de las elecciones, el Presidente Trump dijo que los 'Dreamers' 'no deberían preocuparse demasiado' y que él atendería el asunto de

DACA con un 'gran corazón'. Hoy el Presidente ha decidido tomar el camino contrario. Devolver a las sombras a casi un millón de personas que confiaron en el gobierno, jugaron por las reglas, pagan sus impuestos y contribuyen a nuestra sociedad demuestra nada menos que crueldad y una falta de prioridades. Los 'Dreamers' no conocen a ningún otro país y no fue su culpa que fueran traídos aquí de pequeños. Ellos son estadounidenses en todos los sentidos excepto por un pedazo de papel. El caos que esta acción va a provocar en nuestras comunidades vuelve a demostrar la necesidad de una reforma migratoria integral que resuelva este problema de una vez y por todas". De acuerdo al Migration Policy Institute, 1.93 millones de personas fueron elegibles para DACA en 2016. Por otro lado, 72.7% de los beneficiarios actuales de DACA reportaron tener un espos@, niñ@ o herman@ que es ciudadano de estadounidense ("Estudio Nacional de DACA de 2017", llevado a cabo por el profesor asociado de la Universidad de California en San Diego, Tom K. Wong). "Los beneficiarios de DACA sirven en nuestras fuerzas armadas, estudian en nuestras universidades y son una parte integral de nuestras comunidades. Estos individuos no conocen a ningún otro país que no sea al que aman y en el que llevan viviendo a través de prácticamente todas sus vidas. Eliminar este programa y exponer a miembros productivos de nuestras familias que siguen las leyes a la deportación es cruel y no tiene sentido. Desgarrar familias, sacar nuestros mejores

Ya es hora de que el Congreso corrija este error y asegure un camino a la ciudadanía para los inmigrantes indocumentados que trabajan duro y hacen que nuestro país sea lo que es hoy día", dijo el Senador Richard Martínez (NM), Presidente del Grupo de Trabajo de Inmigración, Derechos Humanos y Civiles de NHCSL. El Representante César Chávez (AZ) dijo que "cuando tenía tres años, mis padres hicieron el sacrificio de traerme a esta nación en busca de un mejor futuro. Si no hubiera sido por las oportunidades que tuvimos, yo no estaría donde estoy hoy. 800,000 personas tienen la misma historia. Sin embargo, su futuro está a la merced de una agenda política. Ahora más que nunca le pedimos al Congreso que arregle esta situación permanentemente". "Los Departamentos de Seguridad Interna ('Homeland Security') y Justicia han demostrado tan poca visión y entendimiento de las consecuencias de su ajorado fin a DACA que cuando fueron preguntados por NHCSL en una conferencia telefónica oficial sobre qué pasaría con el seguro de desempleo que pagaron cientos de miles de empleados que ahora van a echar a la calle, lo que escuchamos fue un silencio ensordecedor y un mero referido al Departamento del Trabajo sobre lo que claramente es una pregunta de naturaleza legal", dijo el Director Ejecutivo de NHCSL Kenneth Romero-Cruz.

SENATE LEADER DE LEÓN ON TRUMP EL LÍDER DEL SENADO DE LEÓN REACCIONA SOBRE LA DECISIÓN DE TRUMP PARA DECISION TO KILL DACA PROGRAM ELIMINAR EL PROGRAMA DACA

Photo Credit: Pixabay

SACR A MEN TO – California Senate President pro Tempore Kevin de León (D-Los Angeles) released the follow ing statement after President Trump moved to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program on Tuesday September 5th, 2017: “America should not be the place where dreams come to die. “This great nation was built on the dreams of immigrants who came here looking for a better way of life and in doing so enriched us all. “President Trump’s immigration policies and xenophobic deportation campaign has severely dimmed the beacon of hope that our countr y has stood for since its inception. “With his decision to end DACA, the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, Trump has snuffed out that hope for nearly 800,000 undocumented young men and women, “Dreamers” who were brought to this countr y as children but have grown to embrace the American Dream as their own. “Because of their undocumented status – a result of Congress’ failure to pass immigration reform – these young adults have had to live in constant fear that they could lose their homes, families and accomplishments at any time. “President Obama’s DACA program of 2012 allowed them to come out from under the cloud of possible

deportation to pursue an education or career. They’ve been able to earn high school and college diplomas, open bank accounts, buy cars and homes and contribute to their communities and our economy. “Nearly one third of all Dreamers call California home and they, along w ith their parents, have helped make our state’s economy the 6th largest in the world.

SACRAMENTO - El Presidente del Senado de California, Kevin de León, (D-Los Ángeles) emitió  la siguiente declaración luego  de que el Presidente Trump se movilizo el 5 de septiembre de 2017 para poner fin al programa de Acción Diferida para los Llegados en la Infancia: "Estados Unidos no debe ser el lugar donde los sueños vienen a morir.

"Esta gran nación se construyó sobre los “Trump’s decision to terminate sueños de los inmigrantes que vinieron DACA is meek acquiescence to U.S. aquí en busca de una mejor forma de vida Attorney General Jeff Sessions, y al hacerlo nos enriquecieron a todos.

whose f ierce opposition to DACA and nationalist views are well documented, and the attorneys general from 10 conser vative states who have threatened to sue over the program.

"Las políticas públicas de inmigración del Presidente Trump y la campaña de deportación xenófoba han atenuado severamente el faro de esperanza que nuestro país ha mantenido desde su creación.

“While Trump said in April that DACA recipients could “rest easy,” he has proven once again that his word is worthless and that any of us concerned about the future of our countr y should never rest easy until he is out of the White House.

"Con su decisión de poner fin a DACA, el programa de Acción Diferida para los Llegados en la Infancia, Trump ha apagado esa esperanza para casi 800,000 hombres y mujeres jóvenes indocumentados,"Soñadores" que fueron traídos a este país de niños, pero han crecido para abrazar el Sueño Americano como suyo propio.

“It is now up to Congress to restore the hope Trump has smothered and pass permanent protections so Dreamers can live, f lourish and pursue the American Dream as legal residents. "In the coming weeks, the California Senate w ill work to ensure DACA students can continue to earn income to support their educational dreams."

"Debido a su estatus de indocumentados – el resultado del fracaso del Congreso en aprobar la reforma migratoria - estos jóvenes adultos han tenido que vivir en constante temor de que podrían perder sus hogares, familias y logros en cualquier momento. "El programa DACA del presidente Obama de 2012 les permitió salir de debajo de la nube de la posible deportación

para seguir una educación o carrera. Han sido capaces de obtener diplomas de preparatoria y universitarios, abrir cuentas bancarias, comprar autos y casas, y contribuir a sus comunidades y a nuestra economía. "Casi un tercio de todos los “Soñadores” tienen a California como su hogar y ellos, junto con sus padres, han ayudado a que la economía de nuestro estado sea la sexta más grande del mundo. "La decisión de Trump de poner fin a DACA es un sumiso consentimiento al Fiscal General de los Estados Unidos Jeff Sessions, cuya feroz oposición a DACA y opiniones nacionalistas están bien documentadas, y a los fiscales generales de 10 estados conservadores que han amenazado con demandar al programa. "Aunque Trump dijo en abril que los beneficiarios de DACA podrían" descansar tranquilamente ", ha probado una vez más que su palabra es inútil y que cualquiera de nosotros preocupados por el futuro de nuestro país nunca debemos descansar tranquilos hasta que él esté fuera de la Casa Blanca. "Ahora le corresponde al Congreso restaurar la esperanza que Trump ha apagado y pasar protecciones permanentes para que los “Soñadores” puedan vivir, prosperar y perseguir el Sueño Americano como residentes legales. "En las próximas semanas, el Senado de California trabajará para asegurar que los estudiantes de DACA puedan seguir obteniendo ingresos para apoyar sus sueños educativos".

CA GROUPS CRITICIZE DACA DECISION; PUSH PASSAGE OF DREAM ACT Karen Ferguson, executive director of the Northern California division of the International Rescue Committee, said she was horrified to hear of DACA's demise. "President Obama called this decision 'cruel and lacking in decency.' I don't think I can say it better than that," she said. "This is not what America is about." Statistics show that 95 percent of "Dreamers" are working or in school and five percent have started their own businesses. Dr. Robert Ross, president and chief executive of the California

LOS ANGELES - California is home to one in four Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients in the country - or about 228,000 people - so President Donald Trump's decision to end the program has provoked a storm of criticism from a wide range of groups. Attorney General Jeff Sessions said Tuesday that no new applications from people brought here as children will be processed, effective immediately. Joshua Pechthalt, president of the California Federation of Teachers, said many students

"These DACA recipients contribute more than $1.2 billion annually in federal, state and local tax revenues," he said. "The decision to dismantle DACA is morally bankrupt, and economically silly for the future of this nation." Certain DACA participants who are eligible to renew their permits have until Oct. 5 to apply. The extensions then will expire in two years, making those people subject to deportation.

who now face an uncertain future may have a hard time concentrating in school. "It's a very bad day," he said, "and I think that it's reflective of an administration that they say they have heart, they say they're concerned about these young people - but in the end, they're more concerned about campaign promises." Sessions said the move is necessary to restore the rule of law. Congress could throw the socalled "Dreamers" a lifeline by passing the DREAM Act or some version of comprehensive immigration reform. However, lawmakers have been unable to agree on this issue for many years, going back to a failed attempt during the George W. Bush administration.

GRUPOS DE CA CRITICAN DECISIÓN DE DACA; PRESIONAN APROBACIÓN DE “DREAM ACT” horrorizo al enterarse de la muerte del programa DACA.

Suzanne Potter California News Service

"El Presidente Obama califico esta decision de 'cruel y sin decencia'. No creo poder decirlo mejor. Esto no es de lo que se tratan los Estados Unidos."

LOS ANGELES - Una amplia gama de grupos denuncia la decision de rescindir el programa DACA, con el argumento de que afectara al estado en lo economico y en lo social.

Las estadisticas muestran que 95 por ciento de los "Dreamers" trabajan o estudian y 5 por ciento ya puso negocio propio. El Dr. Robert Ross, presidente y CEO de "California Endowment" (Dotacion de California), dice que la perdida de estos trabajadores y negocios afectara la economia.

Pero California es el hogar de uno de cada cuatro beneficiarios de DACA en el pais -unas 228 mil personas-, por lo que la decision del Presidente Donald Trump de acabar con el programa ha provocado este torrente de criticas. El Fiscal General Jeff Sessions dijo el martes que ya no se procesaran nuevas solicitudes de personas traidas aqui en su infancia, y que la disposicion entro en vigor en el momento de su anuncio. Joshua Pechthalt, quien encabeza la Federacion de Maestros de California ("California Federation of Teachers"), dice que muchos estudiantes que ahora enfrenan un futuro incierto pueden tener dificultades para concentrarse en sus estudios. "Este es un dia muy malo, y creo que

es el ref lejo de una administracion que dice que tienen corazon, dice que les importan estos jovenes - pero finalmente le importan mas sus promesas de campana." Sessions dice que el cambio es necesario para restaurar el imperio de la ley. El Congreso podria rescatar a los llamados "Dreamers" aprobando la ley "DREAM Act" o alguna version

integral de la reforma migratoria. Pero los legisladores no han podido ponerse de acuerdo sobre este problema en muchos anos, desde un intento fallido durante la administracion de George W. Bush. Karen Ferguson, Directora Ejecutiva del Comite Internacional de Rescate ("International Rescue Comitee") en el norte de California, dice que se

"Estos sujetos de DACA contribuyen con mas de 1.2 billones de dolares al ano en ingresos por impuestos federales, estatales y locales. La decision de desmantelar DACA es la bancarrota moral, y economicamente es tonto para el futuro de esta nacion." Ciertos participantes en DACA que son elegibles para renovar sus permisos tienen hasta el 5 de octubre para solicitarlo. Y esas prorrogas expiraran en dos anos, despues de los cuales seran sujetos de deportacion.

While global warming didn't cause Hurricane Harvey, it certainly made it worse. Photo Credit: Texas.713, FlickrCC

WAS HURRICANE HARVEY CAUSED BY GLOBAL WARMING? Roddy Scheer & Doug Moss EarthTalk The short answer is no. No single hurricane or weather event can be directly linked to the general phenomena known as climate change. “Climate change does not cause things, because climate change is not a causal agent,” writes David Roberts on Vox.com. “‘Climate change’ is a descriptive term — it describes the fact that the climate is changing.” That said, global warming likely did contribute to the severity of Harvey, and has created an overall climate more hospitable to the formation of extreme weather events of every stripe. "For hurricanes, we would ask the question as to what are the possible hurricane developments in the world we live in and compare that to the possible hurricane developments in a world without climate change," Dr Friederike Otto from the University of Oxford tells BBC News. One definite “fingerprint” of global warming on Harvey is the intensity and amount of rainfall. Climatologists cite the Clausius-Clapeyron equation (a hotter atmosphere holds more moisture: for every extra degree Celsius in warming, the atmosphere can hold 7% more water) as one link between global warming and stronger storms. Houstonians have witnessed a 167 percent increase in the frequency of the most intense downpours since the 1950s. Adam Sobel of Columbia’s Initiative on Extreme Weather and Climate estimates that as much as 10% of Harvey’s rainfall could be blamed on global warming, while Kevin Trenberth of the U.S. National Center for Atmospheric Research pegs the

number at closer to 30%. “It may have been a strong storm, and it may have caused a lot of problems anyway—but [humancaused climate change] amplifies the damage considerably,” Trenberth reports in The Atlantic. We’re also heating up our seas. "The waters of the Gulf of Mexico are about 1.5 degrees Celsius warmer above what they were from 1980-2010," reports Sir Brian Hoskins from the Grantham Institute for Climate Change. "That is very significant because it means the potential for a stronger storm is there.” Meanwhile, even the fact that Harvey hung around so long and dumped rain on and around southeast Texas for nearly four days suggests a climate connection: A recent report from climate scientist Michael Mann suggests that nearstationary summer weather patterns are more common in a warmer world. But others think we are focusing too much on the climate underpinnings of Harvey. Ilan Kelman of University College London’s Institute for Risk and Disaster Reduction tells the BBC that the real human contribution to the catastrophe in Houston is more about the type of development we allow than about the emissions we are pumping skyward. "The hurricane is just a storm, it is not the disaster," says Kelman. "The disaster is the fact that Houston population has increased by 40% since 1990 [and] that many people were too poor to afford insurance or evacuate.” He adds: "Climate change did not make people build along a vulnerable coastline so the disaster itself is our choice and is not linked to climate change."

TRUMP CAVES INTO ANTI-IMMIGRANT SENTIMENT AND ENDS DACA

What’s next for DACA Recipients unable to renew their DACA Status?

Who’s still eligible to apply for renewal of DACA status?

DACA recipients are supposedly viewed by the Trump Administration as low priority and shouldn’t have to worry about being placed into removal proceedings. However, Dreamers need to proceed with caution because the Trump Administration simply can’t be trusted.

DHS has also made it very clear in their memo that the government will no longer accept first time applications for DACA status nor accept applications for DACA related travel documents.

Raul Ray Special to El Observador RAUL RAY IS AN IMMIGRATION ATTORNEY BASED OUT OF SAN JOSE, CA

President Donald Trump despite all his rhetoric about how much he loves Dreamers and that they don’t have to worry about their future just how hypocritical he is by bowing down to the 10 conservative state attorney generals who threatened to sue the federal government if he didn’t taken action to end DACA by September 5, 2017. Trump announced his decision through a memo entitled “Memorandum on Rescission of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), issued by Elaine C. Duke, Acting Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security Acting with a sixmonth delay intended to allow Congress to act. The highly successful and beneficial DACA program was created by the Obama Administration in 2012 and provided protection to hundreds of thousands of people who entered the United States illegally as children. DACA holders have done everything that was asked of them to do in order to obtain their DACA status. Now they are left to ponder what is going to happen to them in the future and whether they will be deported from the United States This is a real sad commentary on the state of immigration in the US. Trump’s decision effectively passes the ball back to Congress to try to quickly pass federal legislation that would allow Dreamers to remain in the United States legally. However, this is going to take some sincere and bipartisan cooperation to make this a reality especially given the fact that Congress has failed to

pass various versions of Dream Act first introduce by Representative Luis Gutiérrez, a Democrat from Illinois on April 25, 2001. Fortunately, there is great support for Dreamers and the immigrant community throughout the country from the business community to religious leaders and organizations serving immigrant communities. I am heartened, encouraged, and energized by the great resolve of everyone who remains committed to fighting and litigating to protect the rights of all immigrants. 15 States file lawsuit to stop Trump from ending DACA Lawyers for 15 states, led by New York and Washington, filed suit in New York Federal District Court on Wednesday to stop Trump from ending DACA arguing that federal authorities have “backtracked” on their promise to protect young immigrants who came forward and registered with the government and that state economies will be hurt if DACA residents lose their status. According to Eric Schneiderman, the Attorney General for New York, “It’s clear that President Trump’s DACA repeal would cause huge economic harm to New York—and that’s it’s driven by President Trump’s personal anti-Mexican bias,” He was joined by state attorneys from Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Illinois, Iowa, Massachusetts, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia, Washington and the District of Columbia. The attorneys generals also argue in their lawsuit that the government has not guaranteed DACA recipients that their application information will not be used “for purposes of immigration enforcement, including identifying,

17

apprehending, detaining, or deporting non-citizens.”

The Department of Homeland Security, (DHS), announce that DACA recipients whose DACA status will expire between now and March 5, 2018 have only a limited window period to file their applications to renew their DACA status and obtain work permit. This window period is between September 5, 2017 and October 5, 2017. After that, it will not be possible to renew DACA status.

DACA recipients who are still eligible to apply to renew their DACA status should act quickly to do so. Time is ticking and the deadline date is now less than 30 days. If DACA recipients who have any concerns about their eligibility to renew their DACA status or what their options might be for the future, are advised to consult with an experienced immigration attorney or contact one of the many nonprofit agencies in the bay area serving immigrant communities.

Even if Trump decides to commence deportation proceedings against Dreamers, it will take several years before anyone is forced to leave the United States because of the huge backlogged of deportation cases pending in immigration court across the country. And hopefully long before that, Congress would have gotten their act together to pass federal legislation granting legal status to not just Dreamers but to all undocumented immigrants who have been law-abiding, productive and contributing members of their communities.

¿PORQUÉ TANTO RACISMO Y DISCRIMINACIÓN? Mario Jiménez Castillo El Observador

Con mucha preocupación estamos observando como el gobierno de este país, está atacando de manera directa a nuestra comunidad latina. La cancelación del programa DACA y una serie de medidas anti inmigrantes se están haciendo sentir en todo el país. Se ha olvidado por completo que esta nación está formada por inmigrantes, ¿No es Estados Unidos supuestamente la nación más avanzada del mundo? Parece que no lo es, desde la elección presidencial del año pasado, esta nación ha retrocedido por lo menos 100 años, grupos como el ku klux klan y otros grupos racistas, se están haciendo presentes en todo el país, repartiendo veneno y mensajes de odio contra las minorías, especialmente en contra de latinos, afroamericanos y otras minorías. Qué triste todo esto que está ocurriendo, retornamos a la época de Hitler, se siente un ambiente muy tenso en todo el país, un ambiente de racismo, de intolerancia y discriminación. Quizá un poco de la culpa sea nuestra pues es un secreto a voces que nosotros los latinos no somos unidos, existe discriminación entre

nosotros mismos, algo muy lamentable, tal vez, ésta sea la mejor ocasión para dejar en el pasado nuestras pequeñas diferencias y unirnos como raza para hacerle frente “unidos”, a toda esta avalancha de racismo que estamos sufriendo. Es en verdad una catástrofe, el mundo está siendo gobernado por monstruos, Korea del Norte, Venezuela y Estados Unidos, por ejemplo. Esta columna que escribo semanalmente trata temas mayormente espirituales, de astrología y especialmente de presagios y predicciones.

Por más de veinte años he venido estudiando las profecías y el significado de fenómenos astronómicos, y tengo que confesar que tengo temor a lo que pueda ocurrir en el futuro cercano, especialmente en cuanto a desastres naturales y a la política mundial. El eclipse de hace unas semanas, el cuál pudo observarse de costa a costa en este país, trajo un mensaje, se avecinan tiempos difíciles, puede que ocurran muchos hechos violentos, ataques terroristas, temblores de tierra, y crímenes de odio racial. Ya Houston,

padeció la furia de un huracán y otros dos huracanas están por llegar a la costa este del país. Y por si fuera poco, el mandatario de Korea del Norte ha amanazado con lanzar un misil intercontinental que podría causar un daño catastrófico en la costa oeste de Estados Unidos. No es un secreto que esta nación tiene muchos enemigos en el mundo, como ejemplo, la mayoría de naciones islámicas, sólo por mencionar algunos, pero la lista es bastante extensa. Estados Unidos necesita un líder que unifique a su país en una sola nación, pero estamos siendo gobernados por seres que no entienden el verdadero peligro que corre este país, muchos países podrían unirse y hacernos la guerra, este país no es invencible, es bastante vulnerable. Todas las potencias del pasado fueron practicamente aniquiladas de una día para otro, y Estados Unidos no es omnipotente. Ojalá este gobierno se enfoque en los verdaderos peligros y amenzas que existen en su contra y no sigan dividiendo al país y atacando cruelmente a gente inocente como los dreamers y los inmigrantes de origen hispano. Es hora que nos vean a los hispanos y a Latinoamérica como países amigos y aliados ¡Ya basta de tanta discriminación en nuestra contra! No es justo.

CHIPPING PEOPLE: ARE YOU READY? hand between your thumb and index f inger. Once the chip is implanted, you can see and feel its outline under your skin. I am told RFID chips are easy to remove. I haven’t had one implanted, so I don’t know if “easy” equates to painless, although people who have had the experience say it’s like removing a splinter. A USEFUL LONG-TERM ID SOLUTION If you work in a very secure environment, one where you need to use a keycard to navigate between off ices and hallways, chipping is a pretty convenient option. The idea that it can identify you as a permissioned user of various kinds of hardware and software is also a plus. In this limited setting, the only difference between carrying an RFID keycard and having a chip is … well, nothing.

Photo Credit: Pixabay

Shelly Palmer According to the New York Times, Three Square Market, a Wisconsin vending machine software firm, offers its employees the opportunity to inject microchips into their hands so they can open office doors, log in to computers, share business cards, and even buy snacks with just a wave. Three Square Market is chipping its employees (who volunteer) with passive RFID (radio-frequency identif ication) chips. These chips are activated when they are in the proximity of radio-frequency (RF) waves generated by a reader. Once the chip is “awake,” the reader has access to the information embedded in the chip. The effective range of most

RFID readers is a few millimeters to a few meters. However, range can vary dramatically depending on the power of the system being used to read the chips. Importantly, these RFID chips are not GPS (global positioning system) chips. They cannot be used (generally speaking) to follow you to the restroom or f ind you if you are lost, unless you are in close proximity to a reader. INSERTION Getting chipped is incredibly easy. It’s a nonsurgical procedure. A person (who is trained and regulated about as rigorously as someone who pierces ears at a jewelry store) injects the chip under your skin. The most common place is on the top of your

Theoretically, your company-issued RFID implant could be used to unlock the door to your home, turn on lights, unlock and start your car, and on and on. You’d just have to add a bunch of RFID-compatible interfaces to your world. If you change jobs, there is no reason to have the chip removed, your encrypted RFID number could easily be used by your next employer. To safeguard itself, your previous employer would just remove permission for your RFID number to open doors, log in to terminals, etc. The procedure would be identical to invalidating a keycard or revoking log in credentials. DARK THOUGHTS Proponents of the technology tout

its convenience and the idea that you never have to remember your wallet or a password, ever again. While they are technically correct, chipping people invokes a train of thought that quickly descends to the darkest of places. For example: Will the government have a list of everyone’s RFIDs? What will happen if your implanted code is stolen? Can you be hacked? Is this the f irst step toward (your favorite conspiracy theory goes here)? While I can’t speculate on the privacy issues and conspiracy theories, it is unlikely that an encrypted RFID number would be randomly hacked. You’d need to be targeted, and even then, the encryption would offer signif icant protection. In practice, an encrypted RFID chip (implanted or in your wallet) is probably more secure than your smart phone. But security is just the beginning of the story. Should people be implanted with active chips? Should we implant chips that can be geo-located? Should we implant chips with computational capabilities and memory? What capabilities might we implant after IDs? Is the acceptance of chipping people the f irst step toward a physical merging of humans and machines? Would we be networked to chipped people in close proximity? If so, would that create a competitive advantage? Will we become part of a collective data set? Would we become part of a collective intelligence or a network of sensors that would inform our smart devices or implanted computers to help us make decisions or take actions? Will we become the Borg?
