Vice Pres Responds To Child’s Suggestion


 

 

What does chocolate, gun control, an 8 year old child

and Vice President Joseph Biden have in common?

A 7 year old child wrote the Vice President, along with others, he thought he had a solution to gun control.  Why not make all bullets out of chocolate?

The boy’s teacher, Jenny Aicher, who teaches at the Downtown Montessori Academy, thought the youth had a pretty good idea.  She encouraged him to write the letter to people who make out laws.  Of course, she didn’t expect much would happen.

It was a big surprise when a letter arrived from the White House.

Vice President Biden said he agreed with the youth.  Chocolate bullets would make the world a safer place.  The concluding thoughts in the letter, which was handwritten, states;

“People love chocolate. You are a good boy, Joe Biden.”

 

Information for this story was based upon an Associated Press release based in Milwaukee.

All we can say at Un Dia Sin Fronteras y Podemos Mejorar is, Good Job, Teach.  We can have world peace when we have great mentors.  This youth is lucky to have someone who helps him open doors that may one day bring him into the world as a great leader.

We advocate creating government by electing people who represent a broad community.   We seek an inclusive society in which all people can live happily, have a say in their government, believe in the principles of peace and serenity.  What teacher Jenny Aicher is doing is bringing these concepts to the youth of Milwaukee, and now through her efforts, young and old students throughout the world.

Licenses For Undocumented Passes Colorado House/Senate, Waiting On Gov


 Rep. Jovan Melton with SB 251 Supporters

It was with some resignation House Republicans voted for the final time against granting licenses to undocumented immigrants.  It was the third and final reading of the law.  If the majority of the Colorado house voted for the law, it would go the Senate for conformance and then to the desk of Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper for signature.  The vote was exactly as predicted, 32 Republicans against.   The Democrats carried the day with 34 votes for the measure.

 

 The House Prepares For The Vote


Even if Governor Hickenlooper signs the law, immigrants won’t be driving legally in the state of Colorado any time soon.  In order to prepare the Colorado Department of Revenue which oversees Colorado licenses, the first license can’t be had until August of 2014, a little more than a year away.

 

 Colorado House Republicans

However, a year passes quickly, especially for people who have been waiting 13 years for the opportunity to apply for a license.  It was 1999 when the last immigrant was licensed and when the right to obtain a license by an undocumented person was withheld.

 Colorado Sen. Jessie Ulibarri Greets Supporters

 

Meanwhile, immigration reform is alive and moving in the U.S. Congress.  If passed, 7 out of 10 immigrants will have an opportunity to adjust their status to a “registered” person.  Under the current proposal proffered by the Gang of 8, immigrants who stay out of trouble for 10 additional years will be able to apply as permanent residents.  Follwing that, the immigrants will be able to apply for citizenship, providing the current 27 year backlog of waiting applications is cleared.

 

 

The issue of drivers licenses is important to all immigrants.  Just because immigrants can register does not necessarily mean they will be able to obtain licenses.  Licenses are managed on the State level.  Hence, some states may take the position immigrants cannot obtain licenses under their laws.  For a few states, including Washington State, Utah, New Mexico and Illinois, the matter is already resolved.  Immigrants can obtain licenses in those states.   If the Governor of Colorado signs the new law into effect, immigrants will be able to obtain a license in Colorado, as well.

A peaceful May Day rally turned violent near darkness in Seattle Washington. Police attacked the crowd using stun grenades and tear gas. Some protesters vented their rage at the system by smashing storefront windows. By around 9 P.M. at least 13 people were in custody on a variety of charges. Eight police officers reported being injured.

Robert Way Jr they shot one of thoes right at my baby’s stroller! got the pieces from it.

Some people blamed immigration rights activists for the disturbance.  The Occupy movement, while sharing some common goals with immigration rights activists, is an independent political movement generally protesting the control large corporations have over the government.  In addition, some factions of the Occupy movement advocate for the poor, who they refer to as the 99%.

 

 

Immigrant’s rights activists advocate for the fair treatment of people who have relocated in the U.S. including humane treatment by the police and a set of rules or laws which carve out a niche of the American Dream for the immigrants.

 

 

Like the Occupy movement, immigrant’s rights organizations encourage the election of government representatives with a more inclusive point of view. As a general rule, while immigrant’s rights protests may involve civil disobedience and arrest, they rarely involve property destruction. Immigrants realize they cannot carve out a place for themselves if they use aggressive means or destroy property.

 

Immigrants marched all over the country with large events in LA and Denver remaining peaceful.
