ICE to Track Licence Plates Through Surveillance Technology

Dreamers Demand Solution BY MARIO A. CORTEZ

A group of DACA recipients and their supporters marched down to the existing border wall on Wednesday to demand lawmakers stop playing with their future and pass a permanent legal status solution for undocumented youth that doesn’t include funding for a new border wall. The group of about 50 people gathered at the entrance of Border Field State Park and walked down to the southern edge of the park, which is flanked by Tijuana’s Playas neighborhood on the other side. There, with the border wall as a backdrop and in front of Customs and Border Patrol agents, speakers shared stories, chanted, and called for congress to stop using “Dreamers” as a bargaining chip. The event was a response to a controversial immigration framework announced by the Trump administration late last month, which would provide a 12-year period for current DACA beneficiaries CONTINUED ON PAGE 5

MAKING TRADITION MODERN BY ANDREA LOPEZ-VILLAFAÑA

Having grown up around the restaurant industry, cousins Ruben Jimenez and Roberto Mercado envisioned themselves owning their own taqueria, and despite separately pursuing different careers, they are finally following a path that is in their blood. As co-owners of Taco Lounge, a modern take on the traditional taquerias or taco shops that are found on the streets of Tijuana, Jimenez and Mercado offer their customers authentic Mexican tacos in a modern, sit down environment. Following the lunch rush of Taco Tuesday, Jimenez and Mercado sat with La Prensa San Diego and shared what makes their taqueria shop stand out from the rest. “We just wanted a place where you can get authentic TJ tacos, Mexican tacos, and at the same time, having that better presentation,” Mercado said. Taco Lounge is located in East Chula Vista’s Otay Ranch district and is open seven days a week from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. The restaurant has a combination of modern colors and designs, with touches of traditional Mexican printed tile and an open kitchen that allows customers to see their food as it is being prepared. Jimenez and Mercado also focused on not only providing authentic CONTINUED ON PAGE 9

Mayor Names New San Diego Chief of Police

BY ALEXANDRA MENDOZA

San Diego Police Assistant Chief David Nisleit was named as the next Chief of Police by Mayor Kevin Faulconer. His appointment follows a monthslong, nationwide search that included a series of community forums held throughout San Diego where panelists had the chance to voice their opinions as to who they felt should head the city’s law enforcement agency. In the end, the Mayor selected Nisleit, who has three decades of service under his belt including leadership roles in several SDPD divisions, such as the gang unit, SWAT, and Homeless Outreach. He has overseen security at over 1,000 special events in San Diego, including Comic-Con, sporting events, the Women’s March, and the San Diego LGBT Pride Festival, among many others. If ratified by City Council, Nisleit would take office on March 1, when current Chief Shelley Zimmerman will be retiring from SDPD after 35 years of service. Nisleit already committed to keeping San Diego among the safest cities in the United States, as well as to addressing the officer recruitment and retention issue that has plagued the department in recent years. “Until the crime rate reaches zero, my job is to continue strengthening our partnerships to reduce violent

crime,” he said at a press conference. “I want for everyone in San Diego to feel and be safe in every neighborhood.” Once in Office, he plans on launching a nationwide campaign to attract and recruit new officers so that the department can reach full staffing by 2020. According to City of San Diego information, there are currently 200 unfilled positions. “I want to hire a very diverse group of officers,” said Nisleit, adding that although he will search throughout the U.S., he would favor the hiring of local talent. Faulconer stated that he was convinced that Nisleit was the ideal person for the job. “He is ethical, professional, and to him, protecting this city and its people is his life,” he said. 52-year-old Nisleit was one of six finalists interviewed by a panel of community leaders, including San Diego County Sheriff Bill Gore and representatives from the AntiDefamation League, the Tourism Authority, the LGBTQ Latino Coalition of San Diego County, the Human Relations Commission, the San Diego Regional Chamber of Commerce, the Mexican American Business and Professional Association, and the San Diego Unified School District, among others. “We need someone who not only CONTINUED ON PAGE 5

Escondido Superintendent Annual Address BY ANA GOMEZ SALCIDO

The Superintendent of the Escondido Union School District delivered his second annual State of the District Address at Escondido’s California Center for the Arts on Monday, Feb. 5. “The State of the District Address is part of our commitment to transparency and accountability to the students, families, teachers, and communities that make our school district a great school district,” said EUSD superintendent Luis Rankins-Ibarra. “We are proud to share our achievements, state the district’s goals for the future, and recognize the community partners that help us to provide quality education to our students.” Rankins-Ibarra shared EUSD’s academic achievements for this year and highlighted the many community partnerships that continue to support the education of Escondido’s elementary and middle school students. EUSD is the sixth largest elementary school district in California, serving approximately 16,200 students across 23 schools. With a workforce of 1,900 employees and an operating budget of just over $194 million, EUSD is the second largest employer in Escondido. The Superintendent talked about new initiatives for the district such as the new one-to-one iPad initiative, which will provide every student in EUSD an iPad by the year 2021. “This year, students in grades four and five are receiving their iPads as part of their instructional program in our district. And we are going to keep increasing the number of iPads available to our students, until every student has one, all the way from kindergarten to 12th grade,” Rankins-Ibarra said to La Prensa San Diego. “The students will be able to take the iPads home to do their homework.” Students will be able to access copies of their textbooks and work on projects utilizing various multimedia modes, with all content being filtered through the Districts’ secure network to provide an enriched learning experience. The Superintendent also talked about the progress on the school district’s Facility CONTINUED ON PAGE 11

Trump White House is a Cesspool of Enablers

J

ust when we thought the people around Donald Trump couldn’t get any worse at dealing with internal crisis, this week they hit a new low in handling the serious issue of spousal abuse. Reports surfaced this week that the staff secretary to the President has been accused of physically abusing his two ex-wives, with one of them releasing a picture of her black eye she says was caused by one of the President’s closest staff members. In today’s world of the #MeToo movement against sexual harassment, allegations of spousal abuse should be taken very seriously, especially when they involve a man that is working within the highest levels of our government. You would think, or would like to believe, that the leader of the free world and his most senior staff would move quickly against anyone accused of physically abusing his spouses, but, the exact opposite happened. It turns out that the White House and the FBI knew

about this man’s history of abuse for months, and no one did anything about it until this week when the former wives finally spoke out publicly. This man’s past was so bad that he could not pass the FBI security clearance check that is required of people working within the West Wing of the White House. The guy even had a protective order against him and he was still, not only hired in the White House, but promoted, too. For months, the President’s Chief of Staff, former U.S. Marine General John Kelly, knew about the abuse allegations and knew it had kept the man from passing his background check, but General Kelly did nothing about it. The man continued in his role working directly with the President even without a security clearance. This week, when the story broke about the man’s sorted past, the White House defended his integrity and honor. Both Chief of Staff Kelly and Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders defended the man. One of the people working on the White House’s statements is the

turnover among the last six presidencies. The knee-jerk reaction of Trump and his staff has been to deny allegations, defend those accused, and retaliate against the accusers and the media for bringing the stories to light. Every time a story breaks, it seems the White House would rather deflect and blame others than to look honestly at the problem. The man at the center of this week’s drama was, by all accounts, an all-star at work. He graduated from Harvard, and was a Rhodes Scholar. He had previously served as Chief of Staff to several Senators. And, it appears, he was an abusive husband at home. Abusers should not be given any protection or cover. As we have learned in the past few months in the still-growing exposure of sexual harassers in Hollywood, politics, and business, women have been preyed upon by men in various ways for too long. Harassment and abuse only continues when it goes unreported, not investigated, or tolerated by others. It has no place in the office, on the movie set, or in government.

The story of this week was that the President and those around him chose to continue to protect a known abuser instead of confronting him, getting him treatment, and consoling the victims. Instead, they did exactly what they have done from the start of Trump’s campaign and since his election; they sided with the aggressor over the victims and defended him until the very last moment. We need leadership on the important issues of the day; immigration, security, jobs, and, yes, treatment of women. The President should be leading by example. Even though Trump may never clear himself of allegations against him, he should, at least, deal seriously with new allegations of harassment among his closest advisors. This week, the White House again showed it is, at best, tone-deaf when dealing with issues of harassment. At worst, it has again enabled an aggressor to escape - for a few months his day of reckoning. In the end, he lost his job, but, the President and those around him kept theirs, at least for now.

Their official position changed and, although they continued to defend him, said the allegations against him are shocking and troubling. By Thursday, he was gone. This story may come to end now that the serial abuser is out of the White House, but a larger problem still remains. The President, who himself has been accused of sexual harassment by over a dozen women, promised to hire only the best and brightest in his White House, yet he has hired and defended a cast of characters with less than stellar reputations. Since he took office, the White House has hired and lost several of the highestranking staffers close to the President, including Bannon, Priebus, Walsh, Flynn, Papadopoulos, Spicer, and even the Anthony “the Mooch” Scaramucci. Trump has lost 34 percent of his senior staff in the first year, the highest level of

Art Show to Benefit Border Dreamers BY ANDREA LOPEZ-VILLAFAÑA

A local advocacy group will hold their first art benefit show in an effort to bring the community together and raise awareness to the ongoing fight for the protection of recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, also known as DACA. San Diego Border Dreamers will host the art show, “Our Dreams Live” at Bread and Salt gallery in Barrio Logan Feb. 16, from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. Between 15 to 20 artists have donated paintings, photography, mixed medium pieces, and accessories for the art show, according to

organizer and DACA recipient Ali Torabi. “I wanted to use this as a way to do community outreach as well as celebrating what we have done thus far,” Torabi said. Proceeds from the art benefit will go toward local advocacy efforts and to sending members of San Diego Border Dreamers to Washington D.C., so that they may share their stories not only as DACA recipients but as recipients who live in a “border town.” DACA recipients, also referred to as “Dreamers,” had temporary protection from deportation and permission to work legally in the United States as a result of the

Obama-era administrative program. When President Donald Trump announced the end of the program in September 2017, recipients were concerned for their futures in the country and some lost status due to the inability to apply for renewal. Since then, thousands of recipients, activists, and allies have rallied for Congress to pass a clean Dream Act that will allow DACA recipients to have a path to citizenship, however, no such policy or plan has been passed. Aside from the ongoing fight for a clean Dream Act, San Diego Border Dreamers are raising awareness to CONTINUED ON PAGE 5

OBITUARY

ERNESTO MARTIN BARRERA December 12, 1935 – February 6, 2018

ERNESTO M. BARRERA

BY E.A. BARRERA

It is slightly less than three-thousand miles between the tiny village of Mompos, Colombia, and Washington, D.C. But of course, it is in many ways farther then traveling to the moon. On a bright day in early 1961, my father, Ernesto Martin Barrera and sixteen other Colombian college students, made the trip to America as part of a visiting tour of young leaders. They got to shake hands with a young American president who had his own dreams of trips to the moon, and they got to tour America. Each was given a pocketcopy of Alexis de Tocqueville’s book, Democracy In America. They met Congressmen and dignitaries who practiced their Spanish with the men as they traveled the United States. They were featured in small, local newspaper articles and shown the trappings of America – from the Liberty Bell and Constitution Hall in Philadelphia, to the Statue of Liberty in New York’s Harbor, to the St. Louis Archway. Ultimately, they even got to see Hollywood. On the final leg of the journey, my Dad met a young UCLA Spanish and Art student of Scandinavian, German, and Irish heritage by way of Brooklyn. Her name was Marion Kathryn Holmes. By all accounts and family lore, it was love at first sight for both, despite the fact that my Brooklyn Dodger fan mother had difficulty listening to my father repeatedly talk with awe of “Meek Mant-le” and the New York Yankees. Though he traveled back to Colombia to complete his law degree, after that meeting it was never in doubt that they would marry. The following year, Marion flew down to Colombia to be with him, and on August 25, 1962, they were married. My father graduated from the University of Cartagena Law School and began a short stint serving as a local judge. In the Spring of 1963, they moved back to the United States and that June, I was born. My father began his teaching career at UCLA and his studies in Spanish and Portuguese Literature, and Theater, at USC. My brother Richard was born in 1966. My father became a United States citizen in 1967. He received his PHD from USC early in 1970, six months after he was hired by President Malcolm Love as professor of Spanish and Latin American

studies at San Diego State College. My brother Douglas was born in 1972, and that same year we moved into our home. When our dog, Squirt, was adopted in Spring 1974, our family was complete. My father made sancocho y platano a couple times per year, and once a week would make his own rice and beans dish, along with the frequent scrambled egg burritos for Sunday morning breakfast. We had open-house nights at school, and annual trips to Disneyland. We went out on Halloween for trick-ortreating, and summer picnics at the beach - Dad loved to barbeque during the summer. Nobody loved Christmas mornings or birthdays more then my father. He would get the biggest, sweetest smile of anyone I have ever seen when excited about opening a present – either given to someone, or when given to him. One year on Christmas Eve when I was eight, my mother sent us to bed around 10 p.m. only to have my father wake us up a little after midnight because all the presents from “Santa” had been placed under the tree and he was too excited to wait until morning to see us open them up. My father loved and understood baseball better then anyone I have ever known. We always said he missed his true calling by not working with Jerry Coleman as a Padres play-by-play announcer. In fact, the only time he would ever sneak away from his office during a work week was when a fellow professor and buddy of his would show up with two tickets to an afternoon Padres game. He took all three of his sons to our first games (I still have a METS pennant from that first game I saw – the new expansion team San Diego Padres versus the 1969 “Miracle Mets”). Whether it was watching Mickey Mantle hit a 500-foot home run, watching Sandy Koufax pitch a no-hitter, to Willie Mays play centerfield, to Roberto Clemente run the bases, to Tony Gwynn slap a grounder to the opposite field, he was a baseball fan in the purest sense. He loved the game – the living chess match between the managers. The brilliant athleticism and grace of the players. The manliness of baseball players and a sport where a player doesn’t brag when he does something spectacular and doesn’t cry when he gets hurt. Just spray a little ice on the wound and get back to baseball. They’re professionals.

They’re supposed to do the impossible. My father understood politics – not to the same extent as baseball - but with equal enthusiasm. I’ll always remember his rants against Richard Nixon during the Watergate scandal, and his admiration for Judge John Sirica, who upheld the rule of law and demonstrated better then anyone our wonderful American Constitutional system. For my 13th birthday, my father tried to take me to see “All The President’s Men”, but I insisted we see “Rocky” instead. He loved “Rocky” and that became something of a tradition for my birthday. The following year he took me and Douglas to see “Star Wars” and the year after that it was “Superman.” For all his intellectual energy and tastes, his favorite show was “The Streets of San Francisco” and he enjoyed a good western or a James Bond marathon. In later years he got to the point where he could recite dialogue from John Wayne’s “El Dorado.” San Diego State College became San Diego State University in the early 1970’s, and, for three decades, my father became a leader in the study of Spanish and Latin American Literature. He served as a member of the SDSU faculty Senate for over two decades, and was Chairman of the SDSU Spanish Department for 15 years. During that time, he organized literary symposiums that attracted the leading novelists and scholars of modern Spanish and Latin American Literature from around the world. He earned his full professorship younger and faster then most, and he wrote and published peerreviewed articles and books on his literary ideas, specifically his book on Colombian playwrite Luis Enrique Osorio titled Realidad y Fantasía en el Drama Social de Luis Enrique Osorio. He never missed a single day of work in 30 years at SDSU, and beyond anything else, he loved to teach. At the beginning of every semester, you could see the excitement in his face as he prepared for new classes. He enjoyed being around the students. He prepared for the Fall 1997 term (what would be his final semester) with the same energy he’d prepared for teaching his first semester in the Fall of 1969. He loved teaching more then any other aspect of his career. He taught all levels from introductory Spanish courses to mentoring the graduate students seeking their own Master and PHD credentials. He never missed an opportunity to teach during Winter and Summer sessions, finding his work and the environment of intellectual life much more fulfilling or relaxing then he ever did when on a vacation. Some people are defined by their jobs and others simply see their work as a means to making money. My Dad was the former - in every way imaginable. He was a Professor. He lived and breathed the world of books, ideas, and philosophies. When he suffered a terrible stroke in 1997, that world came crashing to a halt. He’d never missed a day of work and all of sudden, he would never work again, but it was in those first weeks and months after that stroke, that I saw the man I really never knew. We were not close. We had our fights. Big fights. And through most of my early life and into my 30s, we didn’t have a lot of use for each

other. I was a dissapointment to him and vice-versa . He had a hard life growing up in Colombia - unforgiving in the cultural and societal environment of his youth. Drinking played a major role in his concepts of manhood and it got the better of him outside of work most of his adult life. It certainly was what caused his poor health later on in life. But, in the aftermath of that stroke - in his determination to regain his life - he did not submit to fear. He did not allow frustration to deter him. He began the process of re-learning to read, teaching himself to move and use his brain so he could drive a car again. He wanted to go back to work. He had fought all his life to make his own way. He’d never been dependent on anyone and he’d always been his own man. Though the stroke robbed him at the age of 62 from ever returning to the classroom, he never once surrendered to the despair of what had happened. There was never a moment of self-pity - though that stroke earned him more than a few of those moments. He simply did his best. When he was recovering in the hospital, I visited him every day. It was a bigger surprise to me than anyone how hard the thought of my father dying hit me. I cried more then once. I went into the hospital chapel and prayed, asking God for 20 more years with my Dad. As he recovered from that first stroke, every morning I would clean the right side of his mouth of the food not swallowed from the night before. I’d brush his teeth and shave him because I knew Dad’s sense of well-being was

based on those simple daily rituals of grooming; a man respects his appearance. I took him to get his first shower three weeks after that stroke. He cried, which the doctor said was a typical response to feeling normal again after a person has been though something traumatic. It was my chance to finally be there and do something that mattered in his life. I don’t know if he really remembered much of it, but it mattered to me, and I know it helped his recovery. He became my Dad in those weeks and months following the stroke, and for a short while, it seemed he might actually return to his old life. But it was not to be; in 2009, a second stroke confirmed what the fist one had determined, that he was retired from his work and the life he loved. His humor and love for baseball, politics, and family sustained him in the years that followed. But, the terrible nature of sickness and age whithered him down, with each passing year taking him farther away from his former self. In the end, he was a shadow of the man he’d always been to countless thousands of students and others who knew him, respected him, and loved him. My father was a man of education. His favorite author was Gabriel Garcia Marquez, and I am tempted to conclude this rememberance of my Dad with something from One Hundred Years of Solitude. But, it is de Tocqueville’s work that seems to me more appropriate: “From the time when the exercise of the intellect became the source of strength

and of wealth, it is impossible not to consider every addition to science, every fresh truth, and every new idea as a germ of power placed within the reach of the people. Poetry, eloquence, and memory, the grace of wit, the glow of imagination, the depth of thought, and all the gifts which are bestowed by Providence with an equal hand, turned to the advantage of the democracy; and even when they were in the possession of its adversaries they still served its cause by throwing into relief the natural greatness of man; its conquests spread, therefore, with those of civilization and knowledge, and literature became an arsenal where the poorest and the weakest could always find weapons to their hand.” Now that my Dad’s suffering is over, I have no doubt he is enjoying a good book and a glass of wine. Soon, he will watch the ultimate All-Star Game. Roberto Clemente will catch, turn, and rifle a ball from deep right-center to home plate for the out; Tony Gwynn will smack yet another surgically placed hit through the infield; and most of all, “Meek Mant-le” will hit one out of the park that never seems to come down. My Dad is arguing politics with anyone around him while enjoying a great barbeque on a warm summer’s day. And, as he watches his wife, sons, and grandchildren continue in a world now lonelier without him, he has a big, sweet smile on his face because he knows what a special gift his life was to all who knew him. So long, Dad.–

l Servicio de Inmigración y Control de Aduanas de los Estados Unidos (ICE, por sus siglas en inglés) ha obtenido acceso a una base de reconocimiento de licencias vehiculares, esto según el sitio de noticias informáticas The Verge. El sistema que ahora está a disposición de ICE permite a la agencia ver una base de datos que contiene miles de millones de entradas y la habilidad de rastrear vehiculos en tiempo real. La semana pasada, un vocero de ICE declaró que estos datos, a los cuales pueden acceder agentes de ICE a su voluntad, vienen de la empresa Vigilant Solutions, la cual tiene sede en Livermore, California y se especializa en analitica para agencias policiacas y reconocimiento de placas vehiculares. Con esta tecnología en su posesión, los agentes de ICE pueden utilizar a la base de datos en dos formas. Los agentes pueden hacer una busqueda en una base de datos histórica que contiene cada licencia vehicular que se haya sido registrada por el sistema en los últimos cinco años. La información obtenida por esta búsqueda puede arrojar información sobre lugares frecuentados a menudo por algún individuo y hasta encontrar su residencia. Agentes de ICE también pueden recibir alertas por

El alcalde Kevin Faulconer nombró a David Nisleit, anterior jefe adjunto de la policía de San Diego, como el nuevo jefe de policía de la ciudad. La selección se da luego de una búsqueda a nivel nacional que se extendió durante meses, tiempo en el cual se realizaron una serie de foros informativos en distintos puntos de la ciudad para que la comunidad pudiera expresar su opinión en torno a la persona encargada de la seguridad pública. Finalmente, el alcalde optó por Nisleit, quien ha formado parte de la dependencia por más de 30 años, tiempo en el que tuvo puestos de liderazgo en las distintas divisiones de la corporación, incluyendo la unidad de pandillas, el equipo SWAT así como el enlace con indigentes. A su vez, se ha encargado de la seguridad de más de mil eventos

especiales en la ciudad, tales como el Comic-Con, competencias deportivas, la Marcha de Mujeres y el festival San Diego LGBT Pride, entre otros. De ser ratificado por el cabildo, el nominado del alcalde tomaría el cargo a partir del 1 de marzo, cuando la actual jefa Shelley Zimmerman se jubilará de la dependencia luego de una carrera de 35 años. De entrada, Nisleit se comprometió a mantener a la ciudad dentro de las más seguras del país, así como atender el problema de reclutamiento y retención de oficiales que ha aquejado a la dependencia desde hace unos años. “Hasta que la tasa de crímenes sea cero, mi trabajo es continuar fortaleciendo nuestras alianzas para reducir los delitos violentos”, dijo en conferencia de prensa. “Quiero que todos en San Diego se sientan y estén seguros en todos los

vecindarios”. Una vez en el cargo, encabezaría una campaña a nivel nacional para atraer y contratar nuevos policías con la mira en que la dependencia cuenta con una fuerza laboral completa para 2020. Actualmente, hay 200 plazas vacantes, según información de la ciudad. “Quiero contratar a un grupo muy diverso de oficiales”, refirió Nisleit, quién si bien buscaría a lo largo y ancho del país, dijo que se inclinará por reclutar talento local. Faulconer se dijo convencido de que Nisleit es la persona idónea para el puesto. “Es ético, profesional y para él, proteger a esta ciudad y su gente es su vida”, comentó. Nisleit de 52 años, fue uno de los seis finalistas al cargo por parte de un comité conformado por representantes de diversas entidades, tales como la Liga Antidifamación, el alguacil del condado, Bill Gore, la Autoridad de Turismo, la Coalición Latina LGBTQ, la Comisión de Relaciones Humanas, la Cámara de Comercio Regional de San Diego, la Asociación de Negocios y Profesionistas Mexicoamericanos y el Distrito Escolar Unificado de San Diego, entre otros. “Necesitamos una persona que no solo entienda que tan importante es la diversidad sino que la respete y tenga a un departamento de policía que es parte de su ADN”,

relacionados a motivos migratorios y la actitud agresiva que han tomado agentes federales a la hora de buscar a obreros internacionales quienes ingresaron a Estados Unidos sin documentación. Organizaciones civiles como la Asociación Americana de Libertades CIviles (ACLU, por sus siglas en inglés) ha condenado el convenio entre ICE y Vigilant Solutions. “Hay quienes están entre nosotros quienes son indocumentados”, dijo Jan Stanley, analista político para la ACLU. “Como sociedad, y como producto de nuestro deseo de encontrar a esta gente, ¿estamos dispuestos a crear una infraestructura que nos rastree a todos?”

'TA-MAL' El pasado 2 de febrero se celebró el Día de la Candelaria, fecha folclórica en la que quien encontró al Niño Dios en la rosca de Reyes el 6 de enero invita a sus amigos a degustar uno de los manjares mexicanos más tradicionales los tamales. Pues viene a cuento el asunto porque uno de los caricaturistas más perspicaz de México título su cartón del día como “TA-MAL” haciendo alusión a una imagen caricaturizada del presidente Peña que pregona la venta de tan exquisito bocadillo como “… TA-MAL la economía , TA-MAL la inseguridad, TA-MAL los salarios…” y otras consignas que retratan los temas que hoy más preocupan y enojan a los mexicanos en el año electoral. Con una muy singular forma de ver y enfrentar los problemas, se satirizan con una buena dosis de humor negro, producto de la sabiduría ancestral que al burlarse de ellos se convierte en paliativo temporal para soslayar la cruda magnitud de las situaciones negativas que se confrontan en el día con día. Pero el asunto se torna preocupante porque Peña Nieto, a través de su política de comunicación oficial, refiere en los actos públicos escenarios de gran optimismo y satisfacción respecto a su gestión que parece que él sólo ve o percibe, ejemplificado cuando advirtió que había sentido un temblor que nadie más había percibido; una especie de autismo político. Es entendible que el mandatario y sus principales colaboradores evadan ejercer la autocrítica. Debe ser desgastante hacer el recuento de lo que he no ha salido bien frente a fuerzas que se resisten al cambio, o que no están dispuestas a esperar las promesas que se hicieron en las campañas. El Presidente, en el inicio mismo de su gobierno, trazó un proyecto de cambio de gran envergadura a su decir de “Grandes Reformas” mismas que se habían postergado y no permitían superar los grandes retos de un país que no ha logrado capitalizar sus enormes recursos naturales y humanos por la carencia de políticas públicas eficientes. Con gran esfuerzo se logró que los partidos de oposición se sumaran a la propuesta y se moviera el elefante blanco legislativo, pero sólo momentáneamente, para dar paso a modificaciones constitucionales que no se encontraban alineadas al proyecto de un México eficiente y productivo, argumentaba el discurso oficial. Pero a casi seis años de su lanzamiento, los resultados prometidos están muy lejos de alcanzarse. Para acabarla de amolar, en muchos rubros los resultados son contraproducentes como el escaso crecimiento del PIB, la pérdida del poder adquisitivo, la pobreza extrema, el incremento de los servicios públicos que han incrementado sus precios sostenidamente pero no su calidad, y no merman los

CONTINUACION DE P.1

La exposición de arte será en beneficio para el grupo de abogacía y para pagar el costo de mandar a miembros del grupo a Washington D.C., con el enfoque de compartir no solo sus historias como beneficiarios de DACA pero también como beneficiario quienes viven en una “ciudad fronteriza”. Beneficiarios de DACA, también conocidos como “Dreamers”, tenían protección temporal de deportación y permisos de trabajo para trabajar legalmente en los Estados Unidos como resultado del programa administrativo durante la presidencia de Barack Obama. Después de que el Presidente Donald Trump anunció la terminación del programa en septiembre, beneficiarios expresaron preocupación por sus futuros en el país y varios perdieron su protección a debido que no tuvieron la oportunidad de aplicar para renovar sus permisos. Desde entonces, miles de beneficiarios, activistas, y aliados se han unido para que el Congreso apruebe una ley que permita que los beneficiarios de DACA tengan un camino hacia la ciudadanía conocido como el “Dream Act”, sin embargo, no se ha aprobado ninguna de esas políticas o planes. Además de la lucha por un “Dream Act”, el grupo San Diego Border Dreamers está concientizando a la población sobre la realidad de ser beneficiarios de DACA en San Diego y cómo las políticas propuestas podrían afectarlos específicamente de maneras que no afectarían a otros beneficiarios. Torabi, un beneficiario de

DACA originario de Irán, se reunió con miembros del Congreso durante un viaje a Washington D.C., y se dio cuenta de que la realidad de los beneficiarios que viven cerca de la frontera, se pierde en las conversaciones de política. "Se están haciendo muchas concesiones que realmente ponen en riesgo a nuestras comunidades", dijo Torabi. "Cuando hablas de defender a las comunidades desfavorecidas siempre debes tener en cuenta a las comunidades más vulnerables". El dijo que las historias de los beneficiarios de DACA quienes viven el la “ciudad fronteriza” necesitan ser escuchadas. "Todos estos puntos de conversación sobre la seguridad fronteriza y la militarización de la frontera pueden no afectar directamente a Dreamers del Medio Oeste tanto como a los Dreamers de la ciudad fronteriza", dijo Torabi. La Casa Blanca presentó un marco tentativo de inmigración que otorgaría a los beneficiarios de DACA un camino de ciudadanía de 10 a 12 años, siempre que haya fondos para un muro fronterizo y una mayor seguridad fronteriza, ya sea tecnología o personal. "Necesitamos que escuchen nuestras historias para que la gente entienda que hay ciertas cosas que no podemos aceptar", dijo Torabi. "Militarizar la frontera, aumentar la Patrulla Fronteriza, aumentar los agentes de ICE, esas cosas impactan directamente en nuestras comunidades y ponen en riesgo a nuestras familias".

the reality of being DACA recipients in San Diego and how proposed policies could affect them specifically in ways that wouldn’t affect other recipients. Torabi, a DACA recipient from Iran, met with congressional members during a trip to Washington D.C., and realized that the reality of recipients who live close to the border is lost in conversations of policy. “There are a lot of concessions being made that are really putting our communities at risk,” Torabi said. “When you’re talking about advocating for disadvantaged communities you should always keep the most vulnerable communities in mind.” He said that the narratives of DACA recipients who live in a “border town” need to be heard. “All these talking points about border security and militarizing the border may not directly impact Dreamers from the Midwest as much as it would border town, border city Dreamers,” Torabi said. The White House released a tentative immigration framework that would give DACA recipients a 10 to 12 year path to citizenship so long as there is funding for a border wall and increased border security, whether it be technology or personnel. “We need to have our narratives heard so that people understand that there are certain things that we can’t concede,” Torabi said. “Militarizing the border, increase in Border Patrol, increase in ICE Agents, those things directly impact our communities and put our families at risk.”

as “an exceptional leader who has given his everything to the Department and the City.” Councilman David Alvarez stressed the importance of a transparent confirmation process during which he hopes the community’s

concerns will be addressed. “We now have the responsibility of asking this person questions transparently and publicly to see whether he is prepared, in this case, to address the situation regarding how many officers

to attain their citizenship. However, this opportunity for citizenship would not be extended to their families and the overall package would come tied to a $25-billion provision for what is described as a “border wall system” and expand hiring of officers for border and immigration control agencies. The proposed framework came about after weeks of debate in Congress in regards to a spending bill and the inclusion of permanent legal status solution for DACA recipients and funding for a border wall in said bill, which did not move in either direction which lead to a government shutdown. Ali Torabi, a DACA recipient born in Iran and member of the group San Diego Border Dreamers, said that he is tired of politicians using his future and the lives of his family members as a tool for lawmakers. “To make a degrading offer where we get pseudo citizenship by forcing us to pick between our families’ safety

and our future is crude and is something that I, as a border dreamer, will not stand for,” Torabi stated. “Look at us for what we are, human beings with lives and feelings,” Torabi added. “Using language like ‘chain migration’ and using false equivalency to compare us to MS13 hurts us and is degrading.” The location of the event, according to DACA recipient Fernanda Madrigal, was meant to highlight that there is already a border wall in place and that asking for a new wall to be built is inhumane and redundant. “Demanding a border wall is part of fear mongering which the presidential administration has tried to implement by saying that the United States is vulnerable to attacks on the southern border, but, like we can see, there is already a wall and many Border Patrol agents are here,” Madrigal said. “We also wanted to say that we don’t agree with our communities being pushed further into the shadows if the

border region gets further militarized.” The timing of the rally at the border was significant, as a second government shutdown was looming after a spending bill cleared the House of Representatives but was not expected to have the Senate support needed to be approved on Thursday. This bill did not include a solution to the DACA issue at hand. DACA activists and supporters have been calling on their Democratic representatives in Congress to vote no on any budget that did not include a clean Dream Act, which would provide DACA recipients a path to citizenship. “Undocumented youth will continue, now more than ever, demanding that Democrats hold the line, grow courage and say ‘no dream, no deal,’” said Madrigal. “Every day the Dream Act does not pass, over 122 people lose their status. Undocumented youth are at risk of detention and deportation even despite having DACA.”

and immigration agencies was limited after the passing of California’s SB-54, the Councilman reiterated that he will seek a commitment from the new Chief of Police. On the topic, Nisleit told the media that his priority

would be to safeguard the people of San Diego, regardless of their immigration status. “We are not here to do immigration or deportations; I am here to keep the community safe,” Nisleit said.

Arts + Culture THE MAKING OF ONE OF THE MOST FAMOUS

A

lmost six years ago, Eddie Bevins thought of starting a tribute band but never imagined that he would be creating a band to honor the music of the Tex-Mex Queen Selena Quintanilla. The Como la Flor Band Tribute to Selena has become one of busiest Selena tribute bands in the country, according to Bevins, and will be returning to perform in San Diego on Feb. 16, at Music Box. Last year alone, the band performed over 40 shows at venues like the House of Blues, Sycuan Casino, and the Tropicana in Nevada. Bevins said that Friday’s upcoming performance is their third show at the San Diego music venue and they are hoping for a sellout. With almost 7,000 followers on their Facebook fan page and their “Selena,” who is portrayed by singer Nira Perez Ruiz, who recently starred in a Toyota Latino comercial, the band is rising up to being one of the most famous Selena Tribute bands. Bevins said he originally wanted to start a tribute band that reflected his music interests like the Rolling Stones and the Beatles, but after learning about the demand for a Selena tribute band he decided to take the risk. He said he knew people were surprised that a “gringo” was creating a band to play tribute to Selena, but the eight member band has been successful in creating the Selena experience for the

fans. “We don't claim to be Selena, we just claim she has a lot of loyal fans,” Bevins said. “We are trying to do the best and represent her the best we can, there will never be another Selena.” He said that out of the ten current Selena tribute bands, he has trained four of the girls who impersonate Selena and adds that competition is the highest form of flattery. Ruiz recently starred in a Camry commercial for Toyota Latino and shared the

amount of work it takes to portrait Selena and her experience in the limelight. “When it comes to Selena it’s just something that I really gotta put my heart into because it’s someone that represents the Latino community in such a big way,” Ruiz shares in the commercial. Tickets range from $20 to $40 for The Como la Flor Band Tribute to Selena with Grupo Bronco tribute and are available online via https:// musicboxsd.com.

El pasado mes de enero, la OBC ofreció conciertos didácticos en diversos puntos de Tijuana para hablar sobre los beneficios de estudiar música o ser músico, dirigiéndose sobre todo a los niños y jóvenes para formar parte de este proyecto. El contrabajista Andrés Martín aseveró que los chicos estuvieron muy atentos y que fue uno de los públicos mejor portados en estos recitales. Los jóvenes, al adquirir conocimientos musicales para formar parte de una orquesta o coro, adquieren valores universales tales como la solidaridad, el trabajo en equipo, la autoestima, el sentido de pertenencia en su comunidad, entre tantos. El programa estará abierto a menores desde los siete hasta los 17 años de edad. El proceso de inscripciones para ser parte del Programa Redes 2025 está abierto y el ciclo 2018 comienza el 19 de febrero.

Esto es lo que Roberto Romero Molina, un artista binacional de nuestra región, ha creado. El artista de artes plásticas y visuales ha presentado sus obras por ya un poco más de 20 años. En su exposición más reciente, llamada El Lenguaje de las Cosas/The language of Things, ha utilizado la tecnología a su favor. En una entrevista para La Prensa de San Diego, Romero habló sobre cómo mezcló ambos conceptos en una manera tan única. "Trabajo diferentes conceptos, pero la experiencia es directa”, mencionó Romero. “Es un concepto donde tomamos los sonidos del auditorio y se fusionan como parte de la exposición. Es una experiencia única para las personas que están presentes en ese momento”. “No es algo que se pueda describir con palabras”, agregó. El residir en la región fronteriza ha sido un factor importante para el artista. El dijo que el observar las reacciones de ambas culturas hacia su trabajo le han permitido tener una visión diferente de su persona. "El trabjar en ambos lados de la frontera me ha enseñado mucho ya que son dos

culturas muy diferentes. La manera en la que la gente percibe el arte según su cultura muy impresionante”, dijo. “He podido verme a mi mismo fuera de mi cultura, he podido experimentar con lo que ambos lados de la frontera tienen por ofrecer". La exposición puede ser vista en el San Diego Art Institute, localizado en el Parque Balboa, y en el Centro Cultural de Tijuana. Ambas puestas han estado abiertas al público y ha sido visitadas por personas de diferentes países. Gabriela, una turista de Suecia, asistió a la exposición en el San Diego Art Institute y dijo haber visto un patrón similar entre las diferentes estaciones. "Me gusto mucho; se enfocaron mucho en el

sonido”, mencionó Gabriela. “Hubiera preferido poderme enfocar en una estación a la vez sin tener distracciones de los sonidos de las demás, pero note que había un patron similar entre todas. Creo que tienen en común que quieren dejar claro a los espectadores que podemos comunicarnos también con los otros sentidos que tenemos", concluyó la joven. Nuestro país ha resentido cambios drásticos con las pólizas de inmigración, y nuestra región fronteriza no ha sido la excepción. Romero, quién ha viajado constantemente a ambos países a lo largo de su vida, ha usado esto como inspiración y dice que ha sido algo muy importante para su arte. Rehusandose a convertirse

en un artista tradicional, e incorporando pinturas interactivas y sonidos electrónicos a sus obras de arte, Romero encontró una manera peculiar para transmitir su mensaje. Como artista bilingüe, el ha presenciado de primera mano la importancia en enseñar a los demás que el lenguaje puede ser percibido de diversas maneras. "Cada situación que pasamos nos afecta de una manera u otra. Eso hace que el arte sea apreciado de diferentes maneras. Como artista trato de canalizar mi sentir en mi trabajo. Utilizando esta plataforma que tengo siento que es una manera en la que puedo contribuir a lo que considero importante”, concluyó Romero.

San Diegans Stand Against Racists at Chicano Park BY MARIO A. CORTEZ

San Diego residents gathered at Chicano Park on Saturday, Feb. 3, in order to demonstrate against a group of racist, right-wing provocateurs who believe the park is a place that is “anti-American” and “excludes against non-Latinos.” The community response came about after the rightist group Bordertown Patriots, Inc., scheduled a “patriot picnic” at Chicano Park. The group is believed to be linked to far-right blogger Roger Ogden, who has a history of instigating racially-driven controversy by targeting people from Latino and Muslim backgrounds. The community’s presence at the park was also a response to the possible presence white supremacist extremist groups who have previously expressed their intent to engage in violence against people of color and deface the park’s murals. The San Diego Police Department set up barricades on both sides of Logan Avenue in the early morning hours in anticipation of the event and in order to prevent any physical confrontations from occurring on the stretch of Logan Avenue which runs through Chicano Park. From about 9 a.m., local residents gathered with peaceful intent in order to show their support for Chicano Park and its history as a symbol of self determination for marginalized communities. An estimated 700 people were present in solidarity with the park.

The Chicano Park Steering Committee, a volunteer group responsible for caring for the park, organized a program which featured prayer, Mexican dance ceremonies, music, and speeches from community leaders as part of an “educational tour” event held at the Park’s kiosk. The Committee also advised against engaging with the picnic attendees on the park site. Through a statement issued in advance, the group asked people to “not come to the park with negative intentions or seeking to provoke any problems.” At roughly 10:30 a.m., the Patriot Picnic contingent, made up of about 50 individuals, arrived at Chicano Park with a police escort from the downtown area through Logan Avenue. The group set up on a table on the opposite side of the street from those present in support of Chicano Park. Although the picnic organizers’ goal was to “raise our flags over Atzlan” (sic), attendees did not act in an organized and uniform manner, with many shouting obscenities at park supporters while others held irrelevant signage or simply recorded the event on their phones. Picnic organizers also stated that they were motivated by a pro-American sentiment and not by racist ideology. Despite this, known white supremacists such as John Turano, who goes by the names “Pat

CARTA A UN COBARDE

NO VAN CON TRUMP Tres jugadores de las Águilas de Filadelfia, campeones de la NFL, no asistirán a la Casa Blanca para celebrar el título conseguido el pasado domingo ante los Patriotas de Nueva Inglaterra, esto debido a diferencias de opinión política con el Presidente Donald Trump. Luego de su victoria con marcador de 41-33 sobre Nueva Inglaterra, a Filadelfia se le extendió el privilegio de visitar la residencia oficial del presidente, quien este año ha insultado y criticado a jugadores de la NFL por su manifestar su apoyo a distintas causas sociales al arrodillarse durante la ceremonia del himno nacional. Malcolm Jenkins, Torrey Smith y Chris Long son los tres campeones que no asistirán a la convivencia que hace la Casa Blanca con los ganadores del Super Bowl. Durante la semana previa al Super Bowl, el receptor abierto Torrey Smith aclaró que las protestas no son contra el Himno Nacional, sino contra la discriminación por parte de agencias policiacas contra comunidades marginadas y faltas de oportunidades para los jóvenes de color. DEFENSA PERRONA Los Xolos de Tijuana pueden presumir en este 2018 que son el único equipo del fútbol mexicano que no han recibido gol. Hasta la fecha, ya son 5 partidos donde la defensa se ha mostrado firme y ha tenido el respaldo de su guardameta mexicano Gibran Lajud. Lajud ha defendido por 450 minutos el arco del equipo rojinegro y sus buenas actuaciones, junto con el de sus defensores, han evitado que equipos como Puebla, Necaxa, Santos, Monterrey y Cruz Azul den el grito de gol.

Campeón a la Deriva Nick Foles ganó el Super Bowl como mariscal de campo de los Eagles pero su futuro parece estar fuera de Filadelfia

POR LEÓN BRAVO

Haber ganado el primer Super Bowl en la historia de la franquicia debería darle a Nick Foles la seguridad de permanecer como mariscal de campo titular de los Eagles. ¿No es así? Falso. La realidad es que el Jugador Más Valioso del Super Bowl LII ni siquiera tiene la claridad de que la próxima campaña regresará a Filadelfia. Con Carson Wentz como el mariscal de campo inobjetable de los Eagles, es muy posible que los campeones de la NFL opten por no renovar el contrato de Foles. En la temporada que acaba de terminar, Foles recibió un salario que sobrepasó el millón de dólares. Filadelfia tiene la opción de renovar el contrato de Foles, pero a un costo superior a los siete millones de dólares. La directiva de los Eagles no está en condiciones de pagar esa cantidad a un quarterback suplente, por lo que es muy posible que Foles juegue con otro equipo la próxima campaña.

despidió de la Serie del Caribe con registro de tres derrotas y una victoria, esta última frente a las Águilas Cibaeñas de República Dominicana con marcador de 8-1. El momento emotivo de la noche se presentó cuando Alfredo Amézaga, quien brillara en el béisbol de Grandes Ligas, así como en la pelota mexicana, tomó su último turno al bat, siendo despedido y ovacionado por sus compañeros y la afición que se dio cita en el Estadio de Béisbol de los Charros de Jalisco.

Los Tomateros de Culiacán no ganan la Serie del Caribe desde el año 2002, aunque en esta década México ha ganado cuatro de ocho ediciones, Venados de Mazatlán en 2016, Naranjeros de Hermosillo en 2014, Yaquis de Ciudad Obregón en 2013 y los mismos Yaquis en el 2011.

McGregor le Guiña el Ojo a Mayweather El irlandés lanza un reto al pugilista para que choquen arriba del octágono

La única posibilidad de que Foles regrese a los Eagles es que Wentz no se recupere de la rotura de ligamentos de rodilla que sufrió en noviembre pasado. En estos momentos, la rehabilitación de Wentz marcha sin problemas por lo que tres equipos se perfilan para ser el próximo destino de Foles. JETS DE NUEVA YORK Los Jets no tienen un mariscal de campo titular en su róster actual y al haber ganado cinco partidos la temporada pasada están lejos de poder adquirir en el draft colegial a un buen prospecto. Los Jets tienen en sus filas a Josh McCown como su quarterback del futuro por lo que la llegada de Foles podría servir en mucho a su desarrollo.

Floyd Mayweather nunca ha tenido pena de presumirle al mundo su inconmensurable riqueza. El campeón invicto de boxeo suele utilizar sus redes sociales para mostrar fotografías en donde se le ve rodeado de lujos. Montones de dinero sobre su cama y mas ha dejado ver "Money" a sus millones de seguidores en redes. Hace unos días,

Mayweather volvió a engendrar la envidia de muchos al mostrar una fotografía del cheque de 100 millones de dólares que se ganó por pelear en contra de Conor McGregor. El pasado 6 de mayo, el boxeador estadounidense y el experto en artes marciales cautivaron al mundo con su combate en Las Vegas. El desenlace del pleito fue en favor de Mayweather, quien de esa manera llegó a 50 peleas sin conocer la

EL VERDADERO REY El jugador de los Cavaliers de Cleveland, LeBron James, es el mejor pagado en la NBA, con una suma de 85.3 millones de dólares al año. Un estudio divulgado indica que por cuarto año consecutivo se encuentra ‘The King’ James en la tabla de las cifras estratosféricas, gracias a sus 52 millones de dólares que cobra fuera de la duela, por sus acuerdos comerciales con seis marcas y el ser copropietario de una cadena en crecimiento de comida rápida. Stephen Curry, estrella del campeón Golden State, tiene la segunda mejor percepción anual, que es de 76.7 millones de dólares, debido a su acuerdo de cinco años con el equipo por 201 millones. A su salario agrega 42 millones por la utilización de su imagen en la comercialización de ocho productos, que van desde ropa deportiva hasta artículos de audio de alta fidelidad. Kevin Durant, el Jugador Más Valioso en la coronación de Warriors, es tercero en la lista con 58 millones, y también sobresalen sus convenios comerciales y el haber lanzado la Durant Company, que le genera sustanciosos dividendos. derrota. Según el pugilista, la contienda contra McGregor fue la última de su carrera, pero el gladiador irlandés está haciendo todo lo posible para que Mayweather lo enfrente en el octágono. "Yo entré en el juego de Floyd, ahora él debe de entrar en el mío”, dijo McGregor en una reciente entrevista. “Si no me enfrenta en la jaula, Floyd se arrepentiría el resto de su vida por no haberlo hecho. Yo cumplí mi palabra de enfrentarlo en el ring, ahora es el turno de él”, apuntó. Es posible que Mayweather tome en serio el reto que le está enviando McGregor. Por un lado, Mayweather no tiene nada que perder ya que en caso de una derrota su récord boxístico no se mancharía ya que el combate ante McGregor sería bajo las reglas de las artes marciales mixtas. Por otra parte, Mayweather es un hombre que gasta millones de dólares al mes, así que es posible que dentro de poco tiempo sienta la necesidad de incrementar sus ya de por sí gordas cuentas bancarias. Que a nadie le sorprenda si este año Mayweather y McGregor se vuelven a ver las caras, pero esta vez dentro de una jaula.

¿No que muy tronadora tu pistolita? Ahora que debiste disparar balas mortales, el gatillo se te quedó atorado. Lo tuviste de frente, lo tuviste cara a cara, y en lugar de decirle lo que piensas de él, preferiste esconder la cabeza bajo la tierra, así como hacen los cobardes. Hace apenas un par de semanas, utilizaste tu cuenta de twitter para decirle a Jorge Vergara que era un “cuatrero”. En las redes sociales, atacaste sin piedad al propietario de las Chivas de Guadalajara por la forma en que estaba tratando a Oswaldo Alanís, quien se negó a firmar su renovación de contrato. Para refrescar tu memoria, estas son las exactas palabras que utilizaste en tu cuenta del pajarito azul para fustigar a Jorge Vergara y al resto de los dueños de equipos de la Liga Mexicana. “Otra vez el ‘pacto de cuatreros’ en su máxima expresión, compra-venta de futbolistas como si fueran ganado”. La semana pasada, fuiste invitado, junto con José Ramón Fernández y David Faitelson, a entrevistar a Jorge Vergara en el programa de Futbol Picante. Me imaginé que siendo el gran defensor de los futbolistas, o por lo menos eso quieres aparentar, ibas a aprovechar el gran momento de codearte con Jorge Vergara para decirle en su propia cara que es un “cuatrero”. Claro que eso no sucedió, ni sucederá. En una acto de cobardía periodística, decidiste condescender con el propietario de Chivas en lugar de encararlo. En ningún momento mostraste en tus preguntas o comentarios la misma ira, el mismo coraje, el mismo espíritu revolucionario que utilizaste en tus tuits. ¿Será que te diste cuenta que lo que dijiste era una realidad desproporcionada en vista de lo bien que viven los futbolistas que trabajan en la Liga Mexicana? ¿Será que de repente te acordaste que cuando eras jugador hubo cuatreros como Jorge Vergara te dieron todo lo que ahora disfrutas? ¿Será, simplemente, que no tuviste el valor? A mi no me decepcionaste porque yo bien sé que lo que escribes en tus tuits es solo una postura oportunista y no una convicción fundamentada. Tu pretendes ser el justiciero de los futbolistas, el defensor de sus causas, el abogado de sus penas, pero en realidad tú escribes desde la comodidad de tu burguesía y no desde la sala de la lealtad. Si hubieras enfrentado y confrontado a Jorge Vergara, te hubiera felicitado, hubiera reconocido que mi percepción hacia ti era la equivocada. Como supuesto comunicador que eres, estás obligado a sustentar de frente lo que escribes en tus redes sociales. En el periodismo, Roberto Gómez Junco, no se vale tirar una piedra para después esconder la mano.

un presupuesto de $194 millones, este distrito escolar es el segundo empleador más grande en Escondido. El Superintendente habló sobre las nuevas iniciativas para el distrito como la nueva iniciativa de uno a uno de iPads, con la que se proporcionarán iPads a cada uno de los estudiantes del EUSD para el año 2021. “Este año, los estudiantes del cuarto y quinto grado van a recibir un iPad como parte del curriculum escolar del distrito. Y vamos a incrementar esa cifra hasta que cada uno de nuestros estudiantes tenga un iPad, desde el preescolar hasta el grado 12”, dijo Rankins Ibarra a La Prensa San Diego. “Los estudiantes podrán llevarse el iPad a sus hogares para que puedan realizar sus tareas”. Los estudiantes podrán tener acceso a las copias de sus libros, trabajar en proyectos con modalidades de multimedios, todo bajo un control de filtro del Distrito para asegurar la experiencia del aprendizaje. El Superintendente también habló sobre el progreso del Programa de Facilidad de Crédito del distrito. “Para poder asistirnos en el potencial de cada estudiante, tenemos la fortuna de contar con el apoyo de la comunidad con la iniciativa del 2014 que proporcionó 182.1 millones de dólares para poder renovar y modernizar las instalaciones de nuestras escuelas”, dijo Rankins Ibarra. El superintendente también puso énfasis sobre el compromiso que se tiene con administrar los fondos públicos que se reciben y las altas calificaciones de bonos públicos que ha recibido el Distrito. Durante la ceremonia, también se entregó el Premio de Campeón Público al Museo de Descubrimiento de San Diego para Niños.

mencionó el alcalde. La todavía jefa de policía, Shelley Zimmerman calificó al que sería su sucesor de “un líder excepcional que ha dado su todo a la dependencia y la ciudad”. Por su parte, el regidor David Álvarez recordó que el nominado del alcalde deberá pasar por un proceso de confirmación en el cabildo, en el cual, espera se contesten todas las inquietudes de la comunidad. “Nosotros ahora tenemos la responsabilidad de una manera transparente y pública de hacerle las preguntas a esta persona para ver si está preparado en este caso para responder a la situación sobre cuántos oficiales se están yendo, pero también otros problemas, como ahora que vemos que el gobierno federal le está pidiendo a los departamentos de policía que les ayuden con cuestiones de inmigración”. Si bien, la colaboración entre dependencias de policía y autoridades migratorias quedó limitada tras la entrada en vigor de la ley SB-54 de California, el regidor reiteró que buscará un compromiso de parte del nuevo jefe de policía. Sobre ello, Nisleit dijo a medios de comunicación que su prioridad será ofrecer seguridad a todos los residentes de la ciudad sin importar su estatus migratorio. “No estamos aquí para hacer (el rol) de inmigración o deportaciones, yo estoy aquí para mantener a la comunidad segura”.

La única forma en la que Dawil, quien escribe música desde su adolescencia, pudo expresar lo que sentía fue escribiendo su tema. “No sabia como explicarle a mi ahora esposa lo que me pasaba, asi que escribí esta canción pensando en ella y en mi forma de ser cuando se me hace dificil comunicarme con alguien”, compartió. El tema comienza con suaves notas de piano para después pasar a ritmos de pop latino y música tropical. La letra es íntima e incita fuertes sentimientos por parte su compositor, quien reflexiona sobre no poder estar cerca de su amor y sobre la distancia entre ellos. “Si algún día has despertado y lo primero que deseas hacer es ver a alguien a quien no has visto en mucho tiempo, esta canción se trata de ti”, afirmó Dawil. “Necesito Verte” fue producido en el Bedclub Studio de National City junto al productor de música local Francisco Morales. Con “Necesito Verte”, el Dominicano busca dar su primer paso dentro de la industria de la música. “Me he preparado para esto toda mi vida y se que ya es mi tiempo”, afirmó Dawil. “Necesito Verte” sale este 9 de febrero en plataformas digitales.

Taco Lounge está ubicado en el área de Chula Vista Otay Ranch y está abierto los siete días de la semana de 9 a.m. a 9 p.m. El restaurante tiene una combinación de colores y diseños modernos, con toques de mexicanos y una cocina abierta que permite que los clientes vean sus alimentos mientras se preparan. Jiménez y Mercado también se enfocaron no solo en ofrecer tacos mexicanos auténticos, sino que también se tomaron el tiempo para encontrar sabores únicos para sus salsas y aguas frescas, dijeron. Sus salsas y aguas frescas como horchata, jamaica y agua de pepino se hacen a diario y no están hechas con jarabes, según Jiménez. Mercado agregó que sus refrescos son embotellados, y no vienen de una máquina de refrescos, porque eso es lo que tradicionalmente se encuentra en una taquería en México o Tijuana.

Through Twitter, SDPD reported three arrests coming from confrontations outside of the park, including a man who allegedly punched a police officer in the face. Social media users reported patriot picnic attendee Hanzel Orzame, a pastor at a nondenominational church in West Covina, being cited and released after urinating on a mural. This is the second time right-wing groups stage a picnic at Chicano Park to stir up controversy and target the park’s murals.

Los primos también son dueños una taquería en Tijuana que sigue ese mismo concepto. Jiménez dijo que su visión para Taco Lounge era abrir una taquería que proporcionara un área de comer limpia para sus clientes. "Usualmente las taquerías son un lugar donde te paras y comes tacos", dijo Jiménez. "Nuestra taquería en Tijuana, a mucha gente le gusta ir porque es un lugar agradable donde puedes llevar a tu esposa, a tu novia, a tus hijos, quieres quedarte allí y quieres comer allí". Tras haber vivido en Tijuana, donde "casi todas las personas se consideran ser un experto en tacos", ellos sintieron que no había taquería en Chula Vista que fuera de su gusto o que las buenas taquerías estaban ubicadas en el oeste de Chula Vista, dijo Mercado. La idea de tener una taquería se les ocurrió a Jiménez y Mercado a una edad temprana cuando se mudaron a los Estados Unidos y se dieron cuenta de que Chula Vista no tenia tacos mexicanos auténticos, esto es antes de que hubiera otras taquerías en la ciudad.

Sin embargo, los primos siguieron carreras diferentes y la idea de tener su propia taquería auténtica quedó en segundo plano. Mercado siguió una carrera en la industria de bienes raíces y Jiménez es un contratista, sin embargo, han trabajado juntos durante más de 10 años comprando y reconstruyendo casas. Conforme pasó el tiempo, vieron que aparecieron taquerías en Chula Vista y, aunque ambos tenían diferentes carreras, decidieron seguir su sueño. "Creo que está en nuestra sangre, a pesar de que el trabaja en el bienes raíces y yo soy un contratista, el negocio de la comida siempre estuvo en nuestra sangre", dijo Jiménez. Después de un año y medio, Taco Lounge abrió sus puertas en diciembre de 2017 y ya están planeando abrir más restaurantes alrededor de San Diego. También planean introducir más artículos como un taco de birria y un taco de Nueva York. Jiménez dijo que su objetivo es cambiar sus carreras y concentrarse en los restaurantes. "Cuando haces algo con pasión y con tu corazón, no dudo que nuestro negocio tendrá éxito", dijo Jiménez.

The study found that although the number of Latinos speaking Spanish was greater in 2015 than 2006, the total percentage of those Latinos who speak Spanish has decreased. Spanish is the country’s most common non-English language, however, there was a decrease of 5 percent of Latinos who speak it in major metropolitan areas, according to a study by the Pew Research Center published on Oct. 31. “While the number of Latinos who speak Spanish at home continues to increase due to the overall growth of the Latino

The King-Chavez Arts and Athletics Academy celebrated its Family Wellness Night this Wednesday, Nov. 29, bringing together parents, teachers, students, and other members of the community with the goal of creating conscience about physical activity and healthy eating habits. The after-school event featured sports activities, a bike-and-treadmill-powered arcade, and special presentations, among many more. These activities were organized by a committee comprised of 14 teachers and school staff members. Edgar Bautista, a teacher and soccer coach at the academy, mentioned that this event lines up with the school’s goals, which include advocating for good health habits. “We want to educate students and families to not only exercise and eat well, but to also look for resources to stay healthy,” said Bautista, who ran a snow cone station and a soccer shoot-out activity along with another coach. “There were teachers who were showing how to make healthy snacks. Other teachers, for example, were teaching ‘Mindfulness’ breathing exercises to kids so they can concentrate better.”

“We like that the children teach their parents about these exercises and strategies,” he added. Among the most popular activities of the night were a cheerleading demo, a “Mindfulness” demo by a group of students known as the Great Mindfulness Stars, and a talk about school lunches and how they are prepared. The event also featured a raffle which included memberships for ABC Boxing and the Jackie Robinson YMCA, among others. It is estimated that about 100 families gathered at the event, which has been held twice a year for eight years now. Going beyond the activities and lectures at the event, Bautista highlighted that within the communities of Sherman Heights and Logan Heights there are many organizations and resources for families looking to care for their health. “You don’t necessarily have to go to the gym to be healthy,” he pointed out. “ABC Boxing is free, the rec center is free, the Jackie Robinson YMCA has something for the entire family, there are many places for kids to stay healthy and active.”

Un padre de familia salvadoreño acusa haber sido separado de su hijo de un año de edad una vez que quedó en custodia de autoridades de inmigración. José Demar Fuentes llegó a la frontera el pasado 12 de noviembre, acompañado de su hijo Mateo, como parte de una caravana de 35 inmigrantes centroamericanos que se entregaron en la garita peatonal de San Ysidro para solicitar asilo político. Pero lo que nunca imaginó es que una vez en Estados Unidos sería separado de su hijo, quien ahora se encuentra en un albergue para menores inmigrantes no acompañados en Texas. El argumento de la Oficina de Inmigración y Aduanas (ICE) es que no se pudo comprobar el parentesco entre ellos. “El señor Fuentes no entregó un pasaporte, acta de nacimiento u otro tipo de identificación y el niño es muy pequeño para responder las preguntas de oficiales”, precisó la portavoz Lauren Mack. “Históricamente, algunos grupos criminales dedicados al contrabando han juntado adultos y niños que no son familiares para minimizar las posibilidades de ser detenidos si son arrestados en la frontera”, explicó la vocera a través de un comunicado. Por ello, es que el menor fue trasladado a un albergue mientras que José Demar Fuentes permanece en el centro de detención de Otay Mesa, en espera que se compruebe el lazo familiar.

IN A CITY WHERE IT CAN BE 94 DEGREES AND UP IN THE FALL, THE BIKINI INDUSTRY DOES NOT SUFFER, AND FOR HOLA SWIM OWNERS SYNCLETICA MAESTAS AND AIDA SORIA THAT INCLUDES LAUNCHING THEIR NEW VELVET BATHING SUIT COLLECTION. With a giant smile, Maestas holds a dark, sapphire-toned two piece bathing suit made with velvet fabric and shares that they will have other colors made from the fabric. “It’s the thing right now,” Maestas said. “Everything is velvet.” The Resort Line is the Hola Swim winter collection, which encompasses velvet fabric, dark colors, and black mesh. Soria said she tested the velvet suit because she wanted to make sure the fabric would hold up in the beach water, body surfing, pool, and in the washer. “As someone who goes to the beach all the time, that’s something I want to know,” Soria said. Their styles are different from the typical bathing suits found in the beaches of San Diego because they provide more coverage, yet remain sexy with the high waisted bottom piece. The one piece bathing suits

for this collection will have a higher neckline than a previous design but the black mesh on the sides will let the perfect amount of skin to peek through. Soria and Maestas wanted to make bathing suits that would look great on all body types, skin colors, and would be ideal for a beach trip with friends or a family pool event. They recently showed their collection during Fashion Week San Diego and were mentioned in British Vogue this month. Their bathing suits are manufactured locally in National City, and, depending on the season, Maestas and Soria change the fabric and trim. The Hola Swim showroom is located in Barrio Logan and purchases can be made through appointment while they are revamping their website. Inquiries can be made to hola@holaswim.com or follow them on Instagram @holaswim.

From the moment you step into Pisco Rotisserie & Cevicheria, you’re captivated by the colorful umbrellas hanging off the ceiling, the smell of seasoned rotisserie chicken, and the beautiful paintings that decorate the walls. A friendly hostess will seat you with your choice of indoor or outdoor seating, and, as you find your ideal table, you might see the man responsible for it all, Chef Emmanuel Piqueras, smiling and

spending time with guests. Peruvian cuisine is not something that can be found at every corner in San Diego, and in order to fully embrace the talents found at this Liberty Station restaurant, it takes a willingness to fall in love with the different flavors and textures Peruvian cuisine has to offer. First, forget what you know, or think you know, about ceviche and enjoy the fresh flavors of the ceviche clasico. This ceviche is served in a white bowl filled with fish, red onion,

cilantro, camote, Peruvian corn, and “leche de tigre,” a citrus marinade, which beautifully provides the right amount of citrus to the fish. If you’re craving something spicier, you can choose the ceviche mixto, which has spicy rocoto, calamari, shrimp, fish, Peruvian corn, camote, and “leche de tigre.” As you move on to a larger plate, take a history lesson with the Lomo Saltado and Choclo Garlic Rice. Peruvian cuisine has influences from culinary giants like China,

Japan and Italy. This is evident in the Lomo Saltado dish, which is a traditional beef tenderloin stir fry, red onion, tomato, rustic potato, cilantro, garlic-soy sauce dish. The Choclo Garlic Rice has influences from Chinese cuisine and the choclo, or Peruvian corn, adds a touch of Peru to the side dish. If you are craving something sweet, the Spicy Caramel-Filled Cinnamon Churro with chocolate ice cream on the side is an excellent choice. And of course, you cannot skip the

Prickly Pear Pisco Sour. This flirty drink is a bright pink and made with La Caravedo Pisco Quebranta and prickly pear puree, lime juice, simple syrup, egg white, Chucho bitters, and topped with a beautiful pink flower. Pisco Rotisserie & Cevicheria is located in Liberty Station: 2401 Truxtun Rd #102 and is open Monday through Thursday from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., Friday from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m., Saturday from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. and Sunday from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Mexican tacos, but also took the time to find unique flavors for their salsas and fresh waters, they said. Their salsas and fresh waters like horchata, jamaica, and cucumber waters are made daily and are not made with syrups, according to Jimenez. Mercado added that their sodas are bottled sodas as opposed to a soda machine because that is what is traditionally found in a taqueria in Mexico or Tijuana. Although they originally planned on opening a taqueria and only sell tacos, they decided to also have options like burritos and quesadillas because customers in San Diego are accustomed to taco shops that offer different menu items. “We decided to be a taqueria and taco shop to have really authentic tacos, but at the same time provide what people are accustomed to here on this side of the border”. Mercado said. The cousins also own a taqueria in Tijuana that follows that same concept. Jimenez said that their vision for Taco Lounge was to open a taqueria that provided a clean sitting area for their customers. “Usually taquerias are a place where you stand up and eat tacos,” Jimenez said. “Our taqueria in TJ, a lot of people like to go there because it is a nice place where you can take your wife, girlfriend, your kids, you want to stay there and you want to eat there.” Both having lived in Tijuana, where “almost every person considers themselves a taco expert,” they felt that there was no taqueria in Chula Vista that was to their taste or the taco shops were located in West Chula

Vista, Mercado said. The idea of owning a taqueria came to Jimenez and Mercado at a young age when they moved to the United States and realized that Chula Vista was lacking in authentic Mexican tacos, this being before there was other taquerias in the city. “We grew up in TJ where on every single corner there’s taquerias and we used to have three taquerias like a block away from our house,” Jimenez said. However, the pair went on to pursue different careers and the idea of owning their own authentic Mexican taqueria fell on the backburner. Mercado pursued a career in the real estate industry and Jimenez is a contractor, however, they have collaborated on buying and rebuilding homes for over 10 years. As time went by, they saw tacos shops appearing in Chula Vista and although they were both in different careers, they decided to go for it. “I think it’s in our blood, even though he works in real estate and I’m a contractor, the food business was always in our blood,” Jimenez said. After a process of a year and a half, Taco Lounge opened in December 2017 and already the pair is planning on opening more restaurants around San Diego. They are also planning on introducing more items like a birria taco and a New York steak taco. Jimenez said that their goal is to change their careers and focus on the restaurants. “When you do something with passion and with your heart, I don’t doubt that our business is going to be successful,” Jimenez said.

In a statement published by The Verge, spokesperson Dani Bennett stated that “ICE uses information obtained from license plate readers as one tool in support of its investigations.” Bennett added that “ICE is not seeking to build a license plate reader database, and will not collect nor contribute any data to a national public or private database through this contract.” VIgilant Solutions currently possesses over 2 billion photos of license plates, which have been entered into the system through partnerships with vehicle repossession agencies and law enforcement. According to The Verge, the network feeding data to Vigilant’s system can generate around 100 million license plate sightings per month, each one containing GPS coordinates with a date and time. The move comes in the wake of increases in immigration-related arrests and federal agents feeling emboldened to pursue international workers who have entered the United States without documentation. Organizations such as the American Civil Liberties Union have denounced the partnership between ICE and Vigilant Solutions. “There are people circulating in our society who are undocumented,” ACLU senior policy analyst Jay Stanley said to The Verge. “Are we as a society, out of our desire to find those people, willing to let our government create an infrastructure that will track all of us?”

VIKINGS DE MINNESOTA La escuadra púrpura enfrenta en una situación muy especial. Sus tres mariscales de campo se encuentran sin contrato vigente con el equipo. Case Keenum, Sam Bradford y Teddy Bridgewater son agentes libres por lo que la directiva de los Vikings bien podría obtener los servicios de Foles. Fue el mismo Foles el que dinamitó la defensiva de Minnesota en el juego por el campeonato de la Conferencia Nacional por lo que los Vikings saben perfectamente de lo es capaz de hacer. Además, Foles ganó el Super Bowl en casa de los Vikings y al parecer ese lugar le sienta muy bien.
