San Jose, CA -- Immigrant and refugee rights organization, Services, Immigrant Rights and Education Network (SIREN) will be hosting a press conference Wednesday, November 7 at 11:00am to celebrate the voter turnout among immigrants and youth in Northern California and the Central Valley, and the difference they made in the passing of key state ballot propositions and local measures.

Since September, SIREN’s civic engagement team, made up of immigrants and youth, made over 130,000 calls and 3,000 texts to immigrant voters in multiple counties throughout the Bay Area and Central Valley in Spanish and Vietnamese.

“In this election, we showed up to vote in massive numbers in our region and the state, our campaign was about engaging with immigrant and youth voters and building community power with them” said SIREN’s Executive Director, Maricela Gutiérrez.  “We will keep our movement going by organizing this new voting bloc, and continue to fight for immigrant and refugee rights.”

Speakers will include immigrants and young people who voted in their first election, and who are left out of the voting process but who helped lead the voter engagement campaign.

Services, Immigrant Rights, and Education Network (SIREN) Condemns Trump’s Proposed Rules Attacking Low-Income Immigrants 

Community members and allies urged to submit public comment

Today, the Trump Administration officially published its proposed rule to drastically limit the ability for immigrants to get a green card or change their visas, particularly those who are low-income or use various public benefits. The proposed rule would expand the definition of “public charge” to factor in use of various public benefits such as food and nutrition assistance, certain health care benefits, and housing and rental assistance. It would also expand factors that could weigh negatively in public charge determinations including being low-income, applying for an immigration application fee waiver, limited English proficient or having certain health conditions, among others. If approved, this could be heavily considered when denying an individual a green card. It is important to note that this rule has not yet gone into effect and immigrants who are currently eligible for those programs can continue to use them. The public has an opportunity to comment opposing these rules until December 10.

The following is a statement from Maricela Gutiérrez, Executive Director of Services, Immigrant Rights, and Education Network (SIREN):

“It is unconscionable that the Trump Administration is proposing to punish low-income immigrant communities by essentially forcing them to choose between getting support with health care, food, and housing and getting a green card. Getting help to simply survive should not be a factor in whether someone can get permanent residency. It is important for the community to know that this rule is not yet adopted or in effect. Right now, we have the opportunity to fight it. We urge immigrant community members, organizations, businesses, elected officials, and allies to submit public comment by December 10 opposing this proposed rule.”

Individuals can sign up to submit their own public comment and will receive sample messages and resources. Help support our efforts to reach as many community members as possible so they can submit their comment opposing this rule by making a donation to SIREN today.

La Red de Servicios, Derechos de los Inmigrantes y Educación (SIREN) condena las reglas propuestas de Trump que atacan a los inmigrantes de bajos ingresos

Miembros de la comunidad y aliados instados a presentar comentarios públicos

Hoy, la Administración de Trump publicó oficialmente su regla propuesta para limitar drásticamente la capacidad de los inmigrantes para obtener una tarjeta verde o cambiar sus visas, en particular aquellos que tienen bajos ingresos o usan diversos beneficios públicos. La norma propuesta ampliaría la definición de "cargo público" para tener en cuenta el uso de diversos beneficios públicos, como asistencia alimentaria y nutricional, ciertos beneficios de atención médica y asistencia para vivienda y alquiler. También expandiría los factores que podrían influir negativamente en las determinaciones de cargos públicos, entre los que se incluyen bajos ingresos, un dominio limitado del inglés o ciertas condiciones de salud, entre otras. Si se aprueba, esto podría considerarse seriamente cuando se deniega a una persona una tarjeta verde. Es importante tener en cuenta que esta regla aún no ha entrado en vigencia y los inmigrantes que actualmente son elegibles para esos programas pueden continuar usándolos. El público tiene la oportunidad de comentar oponiéndose a estas reglas hasta el 10 de diciembre.

La siguiente es una declaración de Maricela Gutiérrez, Directora Ejecutiva de Servicios, Derechos de Inmigrantes y Red de Educación (SIREN):

“Es inconcebible que la Administración Trump esté proponiendo castigar a las comunidades de inmigrantes de bajos ingresos esencialmente forzándolos a elegir entre recibir apoyo con atención médica, comida y vivienda, y obtener una tarjeta verde. Obtener ayuda para simplemente sobrevivir no debe ser un factor para que alguien pueda obtener la residencia permanente. Es importante que la comunidad sepa que esta regla aún no se ha adoptado o está vigente. En este momento, tenemos la oportunidad de luchar contra él. Instamos a los miembros de la comunidad inmigrante, organizaciones, empresas, funcionarios electos y aliados a enviar comentarios públicos antes del 10 de diciembre que se opongan a esta regla propuesta."

Las personas pueden registrarse para enviar sus propios comentarios públicos y recibirán mensajes y recursos de muestra.Ayude a apoyar nuestros esfuerzos para llegar a la mayor cantidad posible de miembros de la comunidad para que puedan enviar sus comentarios en contra de esta regla al hacer una donación a SIREN hoy.

SIREN Applauds Ruling Halting TPS Termination // SIREN Aplaude la Decisión de Detener la Terminación de TPS

SIREN Applauds Ruling Halting TPS Termination // SIREN Aplaude la Decisión de Detener la Terminación de TPS

Yesterday, U.S. District Court Judge Chen granted a preliminary injunction temporarily halting the termination of Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for individuals from El Salvador, Haiti, Nicaragua, and Sudan while the case continues in court. In this ruling, related to a lawsuit filed by TPS recipients, the judge found that there would be irreparable harm and hardship to individuals

Services, Immigrant Rights, and Education Network (SIREN) Condemns Trump Proposal on Public Charge and Prepares to Submit Public Comment 

Over the weekend, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced its proposal to drastically limit the ability for low-income immigrants to get a green card. The new proposed rule would expand the definition of “public charge” to include non-cash public benefits for food and nutrition assistance, certain health care benefits, and housing and rental assistance. The use of these benefits moving forward could be heavily factored into denying an individual a green card. It is important to note that this rule has not yet gone into effect and immigrants who are currently eligible for those programs can continue to use them. It would not apply to certain categories of individuals, including refugees, asylees, and survivors of domestic violence, seeking a green card.

The following is a statement from Maricela Gutiérrez, Executive Director of Services, Immigrant Rights, and Education Network (SIREN):

“The expansion of public charge is clearly designed to punish communities of color who rely upon these safety net resources to survive. If this rule were adopted, working class immigrants and their families could be denied the opportunity to get a green card simply because they need to put food on their table, a roof over their head, or get life-saving health care. Health, food, and housing are basic human rights and no one needs to choose between these basic needs and being reunited with their family. This proposed rule is yet another attack on immigrants and their families orchestrated by Trump and the xenophobic forces within his Administration. This rule is not yet in effect and we have the opportunity to fight it - which is exactly what SIREN will be doing to ensure that everyone has a chance to get a green card, regardless of where they come from or how much money they make.”

After the final proposed rule is released, SIREN will join partners across the country urging community members and allies to submit public comment demanding that the definition of public charge not be expanded.

Servicios, Red de Derechos de Inmigrantes y Educación (SIREN) Condena La Propuesta de Trump Sobre Carga Pública y Se Prepara Para Enviar Comentarios Públicos

Durante el fin de semana, el Departamento de Seguridad Nacional (DHS) anunció su propuesta de limitar drásticamente la capacidad de los inmigrantes de bajos ingresos para obtener una tarjeta verde. La nueva regla propuesta ampliaría la definición de "carga pública" para incluir beneficios públicos no monetarios para asistencia alimentaria y nutricional, ciertos beneficios de atención médica y asistencia para vivienda y alquiler. El uso de estos beneficios en el futuro podría ser un factor importante para negarle a un individuo una tarjeta verde. Es importante tener en cuenta que esta regla aún no ha entrado en vigencia y los inmigrantes que actualmente son elegibles para esos programas pueden continuar usándolos. No se aplicaría a ciertas categorías de personas, incluidos los refugiados, los asilados y los sobrevivientes de la violencia doméstica, que buscan una tarjeta verde.

La siguiente es una declaración de Maricela Gutiérrez, Directora Ejecutiva de Servicios, Derechos de Inmigrantes y Red de Educación (SIREN):

"La expansión de la carga pública está claramente diseñada para castigar a las comunidades de color que dependen de estos recursos de la red de seguridad para sobrevivir. Si se adopta esta regla, a los inmigrantes de la clase trabajadora y sus familias se les podría negar la oportunidad de obtener una tarjeta verde simplemente porque necesitan poner comida en su mesa, un techo sobre su cabeza o recibir atención médica que salve vidas. La salud, los alimentos y la vivienda son derechos humanos básicos y nadie tiene que elegir entre estas necesidades básicas y reunirse con su familia. Esta regla propuesta es otro ataque a los inmigrantes y sus familias orquestado por Trump y las fuerzas xenófobas dentro de su administración. Esta regla aún no está en vigencia y tenemos la oportunidad de luchar contra ella, que es exactamente lo que SIREN hará para garantizar que todos tengan la oportunidad de obtener una tarjeta verde, independientemente de dónde vengan o cuánto dinero ganen. "

Después de que se publique la regla final propuesta, SIREN se unirá a socios en todo el país para instar a los miembros de la comunidad y a sus aliados a enviar comentarios públicos exigiendo que no se amplíe la definición de carga pública.

SIREN Statement Condemns Trump Administration on Failure to Meet Deadline to Reunite Families

SIREN Condemns the Trump Administration for Failing to Meet Family Reunification Deadline

Failure to meet the deadline has have left over a thousand children waiting to be reunited

Services, Immigrant Rights and Education Network (SIREN) condemns the Trump administration today for not meeting the court-ordered deadline to reunite migrant children separated from their parents by July 26, 2018.

“This administration’s sole intent with these atrocious policies is to harm immigrant families,” said SIREN Executive Director,  Maricela Gutiérrez. “There are still over a thousand children still in agony and waiting to be reunited.”

As of earlier this week, over 1,500 families had been potentially cleared for reunification but have not been reunited. The administration reported that they have reunited just 34% of children separated from their families.

“This is another link in the chain in Trump’s anti-immigrant agenda,” said Gutiérrez. “These policies of separating immigrant children are bigoted and promote hatred. We won’t stand for this.”

SIREN’s mission is to empower low-income immigrants and refugees through community education and organizing, leadership development, policy advocacy, civic engagement  and legal services. We believe that all people regardless of legal status or nationality are entitled to essential services, human dignity, basic rights and protections, and access to full participation in society.

Families Belong Together/ No Separen Familias

Dear Friends,

Our worst fears have become reality. We are witnessing one of the worst crimes on humanity as the Trump administration has created modern day concentration camps, and is inflicting life-long trauma on innocent children.  There is nothing more painful and devastating than to hear the sound of children crying because they have been snatched away from the arms of their parents. This is not the America we have known.

As allies we must all stand for what is right. Every human being deserves dignity and respect. Immigrants and refugees have enriched this nation with their idealism and hard work for centuries. We must respect their rights and cherish their contributions to America’s greatness.

We ask you to join us in supporting our legal defense work on behalf of immigrants in Northern and Central California. The need is tremendous, and we need your help.

Join SIREN in fighting for justice. Donate here today. #FamiliesBelongTogether #SIRENDemandsJustice

Sincerely,

Maricela Gutiérrez


Queridos amigos, 

Nuestros peores temores se han convertido en realidad. Estamos presenciando uno de los peores crímenes en la humanidad ya que la administración Trump ha creado campos de concentración modernos y está causando un trauma de por vida a niños inocentes. No hay nada más doloroso y devastador que escuchar el llanto de niños inocentes porque han sido arrebatados de los brazos de sus padres. Este no es el país que hemos conocido. 

Como aliados de los inmigrantes, todos debemos defender lo que es justo y correcto. Todo ser humano merece dignidad y respeto. Los inmigrantes y refugiados han enriquecido a esta nación con su idealismo y dedicación a través de los siglos. Debemos respetar sus derechos y valorar sus contribuciones a la grandeza de este país. 

Le pedimos que apoye nuestro trabajo de defensa legal en nombre de los inmigrantes en el norte y centro de California. La necesidad es tremenda, y necesitamos su ayuda. 

Únete a SIREN en la lucha por la justicia. Done aquí hoy. #FamiliesBelongTogether #SIRENDemandsJustice 

Sinceramente, 

Maricela Gutiérrez

Trump Administration’s Efforts to De-humanize Immigrants

This week, the Trump administration has put on full display their core belief that immigrants and refugees are not worthy of human dignity and respect. The president himself, while meeting with law enforcement officials, referred to immigrants as “animals.” His comments are consistent with his and his administration’s desire to cleanse the country of immigrants and refugees, and to deny the positive contributions that immigrants have made for generations. Furthermore, top national media outlets reported this week that the Trump administration was exploring the use of military bases for warehousing immigrant children detained at the border. While history is filled with tyrants who have spread hate and lies to justify their trails of blood and destruction, SIREN will not stand for history to repeat itself. “The United States of America is in crisis as its core values are being challenged by racist, anti-immigrant officials in the new administration. They have left no room for misinterpretation when they are callously referring to immigrants as below human, and when immigrant children are being stripped of their innocence. These are not the actions of a civil society. SIREN is more vested than ever in fighting this administration to ensure that immigrants and their children are treated humanely, with dignity and respect. We will continue to mobilize voters and educate the community about their rights until the hateful rhetoric and actions of this administration are stopped,” said Maricela Gutiérrez, Executive Director of SIREN.


Los Esfuerzos de la Administración Trump para Deshumanizar a los Inmigrantes

Esta semana, la administración de Trump ha puesto de manifiesto su creencia fundamental de que los inmigrantes y refugiados no son dignos de la dignidad y el respeto. El propio presidente, mientras se reunía con oficiales de la ley, se refirió a los inmigrantes como "animales." Sus comentarios son consistentes con su deseo y la de su administración de limpiar el país de inmigrantes y refugiados, y de negar las contribuciones positivas que los inmigrantes han hecho por generaciones. Además, los principales medios de comunicación nacionales informaron esta semana que la administración Trump estaba explorando el uso de bases militares para el almacenamiento de niños inmigrantes detenidos en la frontera. Mientras que la historia está llena de tiranos que han difundido odio y mentiras para justificar sus rastros de sangre y destrucción, SIREN no tolerará que la historia se repita.  "Los Estados Unidos de América está en crisis ya que sus valores fundamentales están siendo desafiados por funcionarios racistas y anti- inmigrantes dentro de la administración Trump. No han dejado lugar a interpretaciones erróneas cuando se refieren cruelmente a los inmigrantes como inferiores a los humanos, y cuando a los niños inmigrantes se les despoja de su inocencia. Estas no son las acciones de una sociedad civil. SIREN está más comprometida que nunca en luchar contra esta administración para garantizar que los inmigrantes y sus hijos reciban un trato humano, con dignidad y respeto. Continuaremos movilizando a los votantes y educando a la comunidad sobre sus derechos hasta que se detengan la odiosa retórica y las acciones de esta administración ", dijo Maricela Gutiérrez, directora ejecutiva de SIREN.

Attorney General Sessions’ War on Immigrants/ La Guerra en Contra de los Inmigrantes

This past week, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced that 100% of immigrants apprehended at the border will be referred to the Department of Justice for prosecution, and that children will be separated from their parents and taken to the Department of Health and Human Services. This administration is trampling on the dignity and rights of immigrants and refugees, and we cannot stand for this!

As this administration continues to demonstrate its overt hatred for immigrants and refugees, now more than ever, we must mobilize to support those being targeted by the hate and vile of the Trump Administration.

Our nation’s history has demonstrated that the most powerful tool to utilize against hateful policies of the moment is proper access to legal representation. Despite the Attorney General’s position, the families being detained have rights as afforded by the laws of our nation, and together we must fight for them.

Locally, we must come together to provide our immigrant and refugees families with access to critical legal services.

If you would like to assist us in providing our immigrant and refugee community with access to legal representation, please donate to our Legal Defense Fund.

Every dollar you contribute will go directly to fund an immigration attorney that will advocate for those in need of our support.

Thank you for your support.

 

In solidarity,

Maricela Gutiérrez

Executive Director

SIREN
 


 

La semana pasada, el Fiscal General Jeff Sessions anunció que el 100% de los inmigrantes detenidos en la frontera serán remitidos al Departamento de Justicia para su enjuiciamiento, y que los niños serán separados de sus padres y llevados al Departamento de Salud y Servicios Humanos. ¡Esta administración está pisoteando la dignidad y los derechos de inmigrantes y refugiados, y no podemos tolerar esto!

A medida que este gobierno continúa demostrando su odio manifiesto por los inmigrantes y los refugiados, ahora más que nunca, debemos movilizarnos para apoyar a aquellos que estan siendo atacados con del odio y la vileza de la Administración Trump.

La historia de nuestra nación ha demostrado que la herramienta más poderosa para utilizar contra las políticas de odio del momento es el acceso adecuado a la representación legal. A pesar de la posición del Fiscal General, las familias detenidas tienen derechos establecidos por las leyes de nuestra nación, y juntos debemos luchar por ellos.

Localmente, debemos unirnos para proporcionar a nuestras familias de inmigrantes y refugiados acceso a servicios legales críticos.

Si desea ayudarnos a brindarle a nuestra comunidad de inmigrantes y refugiados acceso a representación legal, los invitamos a hacer una donación a nuestro Fondo de Defensa Legal.

Cada dólar que usted contribuya irá directamente para financiar a un abogado de inmigración que luchará por aquellos que necesitan nuestro apoyo.

Gracias por su apoyo.

SIREN Condemns Trump Administration’s Ending of TPS for Honduras

Press Contact:
Erik Schnabel, Communications Manager
erik@siren-bayarea.org

 

SIREN strongly condemns today’s action by the Trump Administration to end Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for people from Honduras. This end of legal status  Hondurans, which is effective 1/5/2020, impacts over 57,000 people. Even more outrageous, is that this is the second time in a week, and the sixth time since the beginning the year, that the Trump Administration has ended TPS for individuals needing protection. With his ending of TPS for Honduras, Nepal, El Salvador, Haití, Nicaragua and Sudan, he has ended TPS for more than 310,000 people this year. Many who have had their legal status ripped away from them through this callous act, have lived him for years, some as many as 20 years or more. People have raised their families here, contributed to our communities, and been our neighbors, only to find their only legal protection to continue their lives here ripped away without any thought or consideration of the impact on people’s lives. While the Department of Homeland Security, who made the recommendation to end TPS, says it studied conditions in Honduras before it made this decision, it's clear that Honduras continues to be impacted by many of the conditions that created TPS status originally, including rampant violence and numerous human rights violations on communities across the country. SIREN’s Executive Director Maricela Gutiérrez stated, “Today’s decision by the Trump Administration to end TPS for Hondurans is one more anti-immigrant outrage. Everyday, immigrants and communities of color are facing real consequences of this heartless Administration. We call on Congress to take serious actions to stop these attacks of these communities and begin to stand up to cruelty of Trump and his Administration. What we need is legislation that creates a permanent solution to TPS and ensures that people who have been living here, are able to stay here. SIREN continues to stand in solidarity with our Honduran community, and will continue to speak out to find a solution to this outrageous ending of TPS.”

SIREN Condemns Texas-led Lawsuit that Seeks to End DACA/SIREN condena una demanda liderada por Texas que busca terminar con DACA

SIREN Condemns Texas-led Lawsuit that Seeks to End DACA


Press Contact:
Erik Schnabel
Communications Manager
erik@siren-bayarea.org

 

On Tuesday, news broke that seven states led by Texas filed a lawsuit in federal court to end the DACA program, claiming that DACA is unconstitutional and should be ended. SIREN strongly condemns this lawsuit, and wants to make it clear to concerned community members that nothing changes with DACA. Despite this new lawsuit, other federal court rulings in California and New York earlier this year allowed for DACA renewal applications to continue until further notice. These earlier rulings continue to be in place and DACA renewals are still be accepted. This new lawsuit by these seven states is just one more piece in the larger political game that DACA recipients have found themselves thrown into. Ultimately, it’s the Trump Administration ending of DACA, along with the U.S. Congress failure to advance meaningful legislation about DACA that has created this situation. SIREN’s Executive Director Maricela Gutiérrez commented “SIREN continues to stand strongly with DACA recipients and condemns these continuing political games with the future of these young people. We emphatically denounce this Texas-led lawsuit to end DACA as one more outrageous attempt to slow down the wheels of justice for young people who have benefited from DACA. We call on these states to drop their lawsuit, and for the Trump Administration and Congress to find a permanent legislative solution that ensures a path to citizenship for DACA recipients.” 

 

DACA renewals are still being accepted and SIREN recommends that those who are eligible to come into renew or for a legal consultation. SIREN is holding upcoming DACA clinics on May 9, May 23, June 6 and June 20 from 2-7pm at our offices at 1415 Koll Circle, Suite 108 in San Jose, CA. You can register here.   

 

 

SIREN condena una demanda liderada por Texas que busca terminar con DACA

Erik Schnabel
Gerente de comunicaciones

El martes, llegó la noticia de que siete estados encabezados por Texas presentaron una demanda en un tribunal federal para terminar el programa DACA, alegando que DACA es inconstitucional y debería ser terminado. SIREN condena firmemente esta demanda y quiere dejar en claro a los miembros de la comunidad preocupados que nada cambia con DACA. A pesar de esta nueva demanda, otras sentencias de los tribunales federales en California y Nueva York a principios de este año permitieron que las solicitudes de renovación de DACA continúen hasta nuevo aviso. Estas resoluciones anteriores continúan vigentes y las renovaciones de DACA aún se aceptan. Esta nueva demanda de estos siete estados es solo una pieza más en el juego político más grande en el que los receptores de DACA se han visto inmersos. En última instancia, es la finalización de DACA por parte de la Administración Trump, junto con el fracaso del Congreso de EE. UU. Para avanzar en una legislación significativa sobre DACA que ha creado esta situación. La directora ejecutiva de SIREN, Maricela Gutiérrez, comentó: "SIREN continúa apoyando firmemente a los destinatarios de DACA y condena estos continuos juegos políticos con el futuro de estos jóvenes. Denunciamos enfáticamente esta demanda liderada por Texas para terminar con DACA como un intento más escandaloso de desacelerar las ruedas de la justicia para los jóvenes que se han beneficiado de DACA. Hacemos un llamado a estos estados para que abandonen su demanda, y para que la Administración Trump y el Congreso encuentren una solución legislativa permanente que asegure un camino a la ciudadanía para los destinatarios de DACA ".


Las renovaciones de DACA aún se están aceptando y SIREN recomienda que aquellos que son elegibles para renovar o para una consulta legal. SIREN está organizando las próximas clínicas de DACA  es el 9 de mayo, el 23 de mayo, el 6 de junio y el 20 de junio de 2 a 7 pm en nuestras oficinas en 1415 Koll Circle, Suite 108 en San Jose, CA. Puede registrarse en aqui.
