Mother of five gunned down by Border Patrol: Father speaks out

Mother of five gunned down by Border Patrol: Father speaks out | Community Village Daily | Scoop.it

In September 2012, 32-year-old Valeria ‘Munique’ Tachiquin was fatally shot by a US Border Patrol agent. The death of the mother-of-five has sparked outrage in the Latino community and now her family has journeyed to Washington, DC to speak to Congress about the atrocities that occur on the US/Mexico border and hope to avoid similar cases from occurring. Her father, Valentin Tachiquin, and Christian Ramirez, director for Southern Border Communities Coalition, describe what they are hoping to change.

Community Village Sites's insight:

Have you noticed that the U.S. media talks more about violence in other countries than about U.S. violence against Latinos at the U.S. Mexico border? Also, U.S. media doesn't speak much about the migrant deaths in the U.S. desert.

What You Missed in February: State of Mississippi Finally Ratifies Constitutional Amendment Abolishing Slavery

What You Missed in February: State of Mississippi Finally Ratifies Constitutional Amendment Abolishing Slavery | Community Village Daily | Scoop.it

On February 7, 2013, approximately 150 years to the date when President Abraham Lincoln delivered his 'Emancipation Proclamation", the State of Mississippi at long last joined the rest of the United States..."

...

It is rather interesting to note...that the movie “Lincoln”, which involved a bunch of white people sitting around discussing slavery, should inspire a state to finally see to it that they’re on the record being against slavery, whereas films depicting the actual evils of slavery on African Americans, like “Roots“, “Amistad”, or “A Woman Called Moses”, weren’t able to provoke the same reaction."

it took mississippi this long to get rid of slavery? What?

Brittany Turany's comment, March 9, 2013 6:42 PM
I cannot believe it took so long to ratify something like this. Especially when there was an amendment to the national constitution abolishing slavery. While this is surprising, it really shows how things are put off in government. I realize politicians are busy, but putting things off like this doesn't help. It just creates more work later on. Maybe if they would have done this sooner, they could be using their time to solve current problems. The one thing that confuses me though, is why there has to be state amendments abolishing slavery when there is a constitutional amendment?
Ashley Sanneman's comment, March 17, 2013 10:32 AM
This is crazy!! I understand they are a southern state, but that's no excuse for taking this long to ratify it. There was an amendment to the NATIONAL Constitution abolishing slavery. The government should have stepped in at some point.

The Coming Jobs War

The Coming Jobs War | Community Village Daily | Scoop.it
In a provocative book for government and business leaders, Gallup Chairman Jim Clifton describes how the coming jobs war will affect all leadership decisions as countries wage war to produce the best jobs.

 

"Cities are crumbling for lack of good jobs. Nations are in revolt because their people can't get good jobs. The cities and countries that act first -- that focus everything they have on creating good jobs -- are the ones that will win."

Community Village Sites's insight:

This book looks really interesting, and it has good reviews.

Close to Slavery: Guestworker Programs in the United States | Southern Poverty Law Center

Close to Slavery: Guestworker Programs in the United States | Southern Poverty Law Center | Community Village Daily | Scoop.it

"In the debate over comprehensive immigration reform, various policymakers and business groups have suggested that Congress create a new or expanded guestworker program to ensure a steady supply of foreign workers for industries that rely on an abundance of cheap labor.

 

Congress should look before it leaps. The current H-2 program, which provides temporary farmworkers and non-farm laborers for a variety of U.S. industries, is rife with labor and human rights violations committed by employers who prey on a highly vulnerable workforce. It harms the interests of U.S. workers, as well, by undercutting wages and working conditions for those who labor at the lowest rungs of the economic ladder. This program should not be expanded or used as a model for immigration reform."

Community Village Sites's comment, February 28, 2013 5:10 AM
"The H-2 guestworker system also can be viewed as a modern-day system of indentured servitude. But unlike European indentured servants of old, today’s guestworkers have no prospect of becoming U.S. citizens. When their temporary work visas expire, they must leave the United States. They are, in effect, the disposable workers of the U.S. economy."

Impossible Subjects: Illegal Aliens and the Making of Modern America (Book Review) | Community Village Daily | Scoop.it

"There are many books that delve into the America’s immigrant past, but I have seen few  that can express that history with so much detail and depth that is found in Impossible Subjects: Illegal Aliens and the Making of Modern America by Mae M. Ngai. In just seven chapters, Ngai is able to provide an extremely detailed look at the policies and legislation that shaped America’s response toward immigrants and shows how one law can affect millions of people for years to come."

Do you agree with the majority? I agree with all these majorities except the majority on the last question. 

I would add another question that says "Would you vote for or against a law that would increase the number of visas for migrants who have skills in agriculture, construction and hospitality."
