Services, Immigrant Rights, and Education Network (SIREN) Condemns National Emergency Declaration on Border Wall

Congress must be bold in fighting against Trump’s racist agenda

Today, Trump declared a national emergency to create a border wall. Despite members of Congress on both sides of the aisle caving into his demands for funding for immigration enforcement and detention yesterday, he continues to advance his white supremacist agenda to further militarize the border, dehumanize immigrants and refugees, and play up the politics of racism and fear. By making this emergency declaration, he is openly undermining Congress and will immediately face challenges in court.

The following is a statement from Maricela Gutiérrez, Executive Director of SIREN:

“The true emergencies are the rampant detention and deportation of immigrants, turning back of asylum-seekers, and the lives of DACA-recipients and TPS holders being in limbo since this Administration took office.  It is disturbing, yet not surprising, that Trump is willing to take unilateral and unconstitutional steps to get his racist wall - especially after Congress abandoned the immigrant community and shamefully handed him more money for detention beds, immigration agents, and border barriers yesterday. While we look forward to supporting efforts to challenge Trump’s declaration in court, it is imperative that our members of Congress show courage and remain accountable to their constituents by taking steps to reverse this dangerous declaration and completely defunding ICE and CBP. ”

La Red de Servicios, Derechos de los Inmigrantes y Educación (SIREN) condena Declaración Nacional de Emergencia en El Muro Fronterizo
El Congreso debe ser audaz en la lucha contra la agenda racista de Trump

Hoy, Trump hizo una declaración de emergencia nacional para crear un muro fronterizo. A pesar de que los miembros del Congreso a ambos lados del pasillo se hundieron en sus demandas de fondos para la aplicación de la ley de inmigración y la detención ayer, continúa avanzando en su agenda de supremacía blanca para militarizar aún más la frontera, deshumanizar a los inmigrantes y refugiados, y poner en práctica la política de racismo y temor. Al hacer esta declaración de emergencia, está socavando abiertamente al Congreso e inmediatamente enfrentará desafíos en la corte.

La siguiente es una declaración de Maricela Gutiérrez, Directora Ejecutiva de SIREN:

“Las verdaderas emergencias son la detención y deportación desenfrenada de inmigrantes, el rechazo de los solicitantes de asilo y las vidas de los beneficiarios de DACA y los titulares de TPS que están en el limbo desde que esta Administración asumió el cargo. Es preocupante, pero no sorprendente, que Trump esté dispuesto a tomar medidas unilaterales e inconstitucionales para obtener su muro racista, especialmente después de que el Congreso abandonó a la comunidad de inmigrantes y le entregó vergonzosamente más dinero para camas de detención, agentes de inmigración y barreras fronterizas ayer. Si bien esperamos apoyar los esfuerzos para desafiar la declaración de Trump en la corte, es imperativo que nuestros miembros del Congreso demuestren valor y sean responsables ante sus electores al tomar medidas para revertir esta peligrosa declaración y eliminar completamente el ICE y el CBP. ”

SIREN Condemns Trump’s Threat to Declare National Emergency // SIREN Condena la Amenaza de Trump de Declarar una Emergencia Nacional

Services, Immigrant Rights, and Education Network (SIREN) Condemns Trump’s Threat to Declare National Emergency Trump has manufactured the border crisis and Congress must oppose funding for DHS

Today, Trump is expected to make a potential declaration of a national emergency at the border. In an attempt to circumvent Congress and as a result of the federal government shutdown that he created, Trump is attempting to force the creation of a border wall. By making such an emergency declaration, Trump would be undermining Congress and walking on very questionable legal ground.

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

“The only crisis that exists at the border is the unconscionable detention, abuses, and deaths of individuals arriving at the border. Trump and his administration are responsible for the atrocities against asylum-seekers and immigrants coming to this country denying them of basic rights and human dignity. He is also responsible for the current federal government shutdown which he is using as justification for the racist wall and declaration of a national emergency. By separating children from their families and denying legal avenues to apply for asylum, the Trump administration created a humanitarian crisis at the border. Our country should be welcoming those coming to the border - not falsely declaring a national emergency to build a wall.”

Individuals can call their members of Congress and Congressional leadership urging them to oppose any increased funding for the Department of Homeland Security.

La Red de Servicios, Derechos de los Inmigrantes y Educación (SIREN) condena la amenaza de Trump de declarar una emergencia nacional
Trump ha fabricado la crisis fronteriza y el Congreso debe oponerse a los fondos para el DHS


Hoy, se espera que Trump haga una declaración potencial de una emergencia nacional en la frontera. En un intento por eludir el Congreso y como resultado del cierre del gobierno federal que él creó, Trump intenta forzar la creación de un muro fronterizo. Al hacer tal declaración de emergencia, Trump estaría socavando al Congreso y caminando sobre un terreno legal muy cuestionable.

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

“La única crisis que existe en la frontera es la detención desmedida, los abusos y las muertes de personas que llegan a la frontera. Trump y su administración son responsables por las atrocidades contra los solicitantes de asilo y los inmigrantes que llegan a este país y les niegan los derechos básicos y la dignidad humana. También es responsable del actual cierre del gobierno federal que está utilizando como justificación para el muro racista y la declaración de una emergencia nacional. Al separar a los niños de sus familias y negar las vías legales para solicitar asilo, el gobierno de Trump creó una crisis humanitaria en la frontera. "Nuestro país debería dar la bienvenida a los que vienen a la frontera, no declarar falsamente una emergencia nacional para construir un muro".

Las personas pueden llamar a sus miembros del Congreso y al liderazgo del Congreso para pedirles que se opongan a cualquier aumento de fondos para el Departamento de Seguridad Nacional.

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.

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.”

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,

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

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

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.
