En el nombre de la seguridad de la comunidad se quiere aplicar una nueva ley que afecta a la comunidad inmigrante en Estados Unidos, pues si un inmigrante es arrestado por cualquier causa la policia comparte la informacion de la persona detenida con ICE que actua rapidamente y deporta a la persona detenida.

 

Los trabajadores y trabajadoras inmigrantes pueden ser afectados por una nueva ley que los hace mas vulnerables  para que pisoten sus derechos y sean explotados al maximo.

 

Para citar un ejemplo tenemos lo que hace unos dias sucedio a Juan y Chico.

 

Bajo frio viento del mes de Mayo iniciaron un nuevo proyecto para Mr. Frank Kafca ,quien en forma amigable los recibio en su casa  y acto seguido les mostro todos los problemas al rededor de la casa.

 

“Pero empezemos en el patio” dijo Mr. Frank con el proyecto de agregar mas altura a la cerca al rededor de la casa.

 

Se  acordo el precio del trabajo por hora y Mr. Frank lloro al maximo  “Amigos alludenme yo no tengo mucho dinero y puedo pagar 18 Dolares a cada uno, y seran mis amigos por siempre”

 

Al estar comprando la Madera y en la tienda Mr. Frank, dijo “tengo una llamada importante, me tengo que retirar, pero les dejo un cheque a nombre de Juan Perez para que compren , adios.” Y acto seguido Frank desaparecio como volando.                                                       Al

 

El dia siguiente, Mr. Frank despues de ser una persona amable que afirmaba a cada momento, “que bonito, me gusta su trabajo muchachos” Al estar el trabajo finalizado Mr.Frank Kafca se transformo de una persona amable y agradable, a una gran cucaracha y cuando abria su boca todo lo que expulsaba hera desagradable.

 

La razon de esta incredible transformacion es que no estaba dispuesto a pagar y cuando finalmente entrego el cheque le faltaba dos cientos dolares.

 

Cuando Juan y Chico vieron el faltante de doscientos dolares trataron de razonar y arreglar el mal entendido, pero Mr, Frank inicio a gritar y decir “fuera de mi casa llamare a la policia” y al ver que su plan de robar daba resultado se transformo en un ser desconocido con sus gritos, “llamare a la policia!” 

 

Las comunidades seguras es un plan que afectara en forma negativa a las personas mas desprotegidas.

 

Afortunadamente personas como Mr. Frank no existen muchas en esto dias, pero en un medio ambiente apropiado puden multiplicarse.

In the name of “so-called” safe communities legislators have created a new law that has a direct and very serious impact on all of us migrant peoples in the United States.

 

The law states that if an immigrant is arrested for whatever reason, the police will be required to share the information of the person detained with ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) who acts quickly to detain and deport that person.

 

The immigrant workers can be affected by this new law because it makes us more vulnerable to rights abuses and exploitation.

 

For example, this is what happened to my friends Juan and Chico a few days back.

 

Low cold winds in the month of May initiated a new project for Mr. F, who in an act of kindness, let my friends stay in his home and continued to show them all the different problems surrounding the house.

 

“But let’s start in the front yard” said Mr. F, with his project of adding height to the fence around his home.

 

He remembered the price of the job for today and Mr. F cried, “ Friends Please help me, I don’t have a lot of money and I can pay 18 dollars each, then you will be my friends for life.”

 

While buying the wood in the store Mr. F said, “I have an important call, I have to leave for a bit, but here is the check in the name of “Juan P.” So you can purchase the material, bye.” Immediately Frank disappeared like a bird.

 

The following day, Mr. F after being such a nice agreeable person that reaffirmed constantly, “oh how lovely, I like your work guys”--upon completion of the project-- transformed from a nice person to a cockroach and when he opened his mouth everything that came out was an expletive.

 

The reason for this incredible transformation is because this person was not willing to pay my migrant friends and when he finally handed over the check it was short 200.00 dollars.

 

When Juan and Chico saw that they were underpaid 200 dollars, they tried to reason and fix the misunderstanding, but Mr. F began to scream “get out of my house or I’ll call the police” and when he saw that his plan of stealing was giving him results he became someone unrecognizable with his screams, “I’ll call the cops!”

 

Secure Communities is a plan that will affect negatively those people that are most unprotected. Fortunately there are not too many people like Mr. F these days, but  with this kind of legislative support, they will multiply.

 

 

If "Juan" and "Chico" had been legal, Mr. F would have been in big trouble. Since they weren't...oh, well. Mr. F is a jerk, yes, but perhaps it will discourage the Juan and Chicos of the world to stay where they are.
