U.S. Efforts To Halt Central American Refugee Influx Falls Short

Carlos Batara's curator insight, August 23, 6:18 PM

 

To solve the Central American refugee influx, and any of the refugee migrations across the globe, requires an inclusive approach.  In other words, countries need to work together.

 

All aspects of immigration, after all, are not only local, but also global in nature.

 

Let me add a side comment to this article. Some pressure needs to be placed on smugglers.

 

The coyotes guiding Central American refugees are snake oil salesmen. Based on my interviews with refugees, they part with $4,000 to pay their guides, at minimum, per person. (Imagine what it takes to earn $4,000 in Central America.) "The guides" tell the refugees that they'll get into the U.S. due to their situation. They do not tell them that staying here is not the same as getting into the U.S. They do not tell them that staying here will require a court hearing, an immigration trial, detention, and possible deportation back to their country.

 

Reduce their influence, and the migration is likely to slow down.

Shortage Of Competent Translators For Ancient Mayan Languages At Immigration Courts

Carlos Batara's curator insight, August 22, 1:54 AM

 

On any given day at immigration court, one is likely to hear at least five different languages per courtroom.  Some of the languages are rare to the U.S., forcing the court to scramble to locate competent translators.

 

Some of the new Central American refugees to arrive at our borders have accelerated this need.

 

As the Los Angeles Times recently reported:

 

"Successive waves in recent years of more than 100,000 immigrants from Central America — many of them boys and girls who came without their parents — have created a shortage of people who can translate Mayan languages, especially K’iché (Quiché) and Mam. This is an especially acute need for arrivals from Guatemala, which is home to more than two dozen indigenous languages, but also from countries such as Honduras.

 

Spoken by almost 80,000 people in mostly rural municipalities in Huehuetenango, Guatemala, Kanjobal is common in places like Santa Eulalia — where Vinicio grew up — but rare everywhere else.

 

Mam, a Mayan language spoken by more than 500,000 people in Guatemala, ranked ninth in the top 10 languages spoken in U.S. immigration court last fiscal year. Quiché ranked 11th. Both surpassed French, according to the Department of Justice Executive Office for Immigration Review."

Stop Saying “Melting Pot”!

Stop Saying “Melting Pot”! | Community Village Daily | Scoop.it

"It has only been slowly and grudgingly that lawmakers of this land have given legal status to non-whites (and non-men, for that matter).  When Israel Zangwill wrote his now-famous 1909 play,

 

The Melting Pot, the British writer used these words:

"America is God's Crucible, the great Melting-Pot where all the races of Europe are melting and reforming... Germans and Frenchmen, Irishmen and Englishmen, Jews and Russians – into the Crucible with you all! God is making the American."

 

Do you notice anyone missing? Native Americans maybe? Perhaps the Chinese? Or Arabs? What about Latinos? Or Africans?  Zangwill reflected the racism of his time by saying that various European groups of immigrants could enter the United States and “blend” into a harmonious White race.  But the generosity of welcome ended there. "

The French don't know what a burkini looks like and what it represents, says burkini designer

The French don't know what a burkini looks like and what it represents, says burkini designer | Community Village Daily | Scoop.it
The former French president Nicolas Sarkozy has branded the full-body burkini swimsuits worn by some Muslim women a “provocation” that supports radicalised Islam.


The burkini ban: what it really means when we criminalise clothes
Read more
After efforts by a series of French coastal towns to ban women from wearing burkinis set off a heated debate in the country, Sarkozy said in a TV interview on Wednesday night that “we don’t imprison women behind fabric”.

His outburst earned a sharp rebuke from the woman who created the burkini, the Australian designer Aheda Zanetti.

“I truly, truly believe that the French have misunderstood and that they don’t know what a burkini looks like and what it represents,” said Zanetti.

“For someone to bring out a statement like that on a piece of clothing that is about joy ... he doesn’t know what he’s talking about. He needs to go to the beach and maybe ask, what is a burkini swimsuit?

“Burkini is just a word that describes a full cover swimsuit and it doesn’t symbolise anything to do with Muslims. It’s about encouraging our kids and children to learn how to swim.”

Electric cars as bad as coffee or refrigerators: why we fear new things

Electric cars as bad as coffee or refrigerators: why we fear new things | Community Village Daily | Scoop.it

Electric cars face opposition not just from entrenched interests that benefit from the use of fossil fuels, but from car buyers as well.

Shoppers continue to express concerns about things like range anxiety and availability of charging stations, among other factors.

Many are simply unfamiliar with electric cars—and thus suspicious of something they do not understand.

Even when a technology or product offers a vast improvement over what came before, it does not automatically follow that widespread adoption will take place.

Often, the general response from the public is quite the opposite, argues Calestous Juma—a professor at Harvard University's Kennedy School of Government—in his new book, Innovation and Its Enemies: Why People Resist New Technologies.

From coffee to mechanical refrigeration, there has been significant resistance to new things that eventually became everyday fixtures, Juma explained in an interview The Washington Post's Innovations blog.
