Who is winning the political race?

“Estamos Unidos” con President Obama


Each year, approximately 65,000 undocumented students graduate from American high schools. While many hope to pursue higher education, join the military, or enter the workforce, their lack of legal status places those dreams in jeopardy and exposes them to deportation. Over the last decade, there has been growing bipartisan consensus that Congress should provide legal immigration status for young adults who came to the country as children and graduated from American high schools.

Since 2001, when the Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors (DREAM) Act was first introduced as bipartisan legislation, its main provision—providing permanent resident status (i.e. a “green card”) upon completion of two years of college or service in the military—has held out hopes of a lasting solution for these young people. As the current political environment has become more polarized, bipartisan support for the DREAM Act has waned. Recently, however, more narrow proposals have circulated that either restrict eligibility for permanent residency to a smaller group of young people or offer no dedicated path to permanent residency (and, eventually, U.S. citizenship).

“Si no comete un crimen no debe temer”, dice Alguacil


KNOXVILLE—El alguacil del condado Knox, JJ Jones, finalmente hizo publico que su despacho ya fue aprobado para iniciar el acuerdo 287g con la Oficina de Inmigración y Aduanas (ICE) pero que no se ha realizado todavia.

Desde su punto de vista “si un individuo no comete un crimen no tiene porque temer esta medida”, segun expreso a los medios locales el alguacil Jones quien ademas senalo que la accion de 287g no estara en las calles sino en las carceles.

Durante el 2010, el gobernador Haslam firmo una ley para permitir que los carceleros de todas las carceles del estado elaboraran un procedimiento normalizado por escrito para verificar el estatus de ciudadanía de las personas que sean arrestadas por cualquier periodo de tiempo y asi informar a  la Oficina de Inmigración y Aduanas para iniciar la deportacion del individuo inmigrante sin permiso de permanencia en el pais.
