    Adjustment of Status v. Consular Processing, Provisional Waiver, Regular Waiver

    in Legal

    The United States Immigration Laws allows certain relatives to file for other relatives. In addition, the intending immigrant has to do either Consular processing or adjustment of status to eventually get the “green card.” Green card holder or lawful permanent resident (LPR) means the same thing.As spouse who is a LPR or United States citizen (USC) can file for a spouse. A child who is age 21 and USC can file for a parent. A parent who is a USC can file for children (married or unmarried). A parent who is an LPR can file for unmarried children. A sibling who is a USC and age 21 can file for another sibling. Aunts & uncle and niece & nephew cannot file for the other. If the intending immigrant is in the US and made a lawful entry, the intending immigrant may adjust status in the US. If the intending immigrant did not make a lawful entry, the intending immigrant if in the US has to return his/her US consulate to be processed for the green card. Undocumented means that that the intending was not inspected and admitted. A person who came to the US undocumented and got married to a USC, the intending immigrant may file for a provisional waiver before (s)he goes to the US consulate to be processed.  A person who did not make a lawful entry, stayed in the US for 366 days, and you leave the US, you will be barred for 10 years from coming back. Provisional waiver reduces that time to about two weeks.

    WORLD WIDE AFRICA THE VOICE OF THE PAN AFRICAN MOVEMENT

    in Politics

    If a Negro in 1964 has to sit around and wait for some cracker senator to filibuster when it comes to the rights of black people, why, you and I should hang our heads in shame. You talk about a march on Washington in 1963, you haven't seen anything. There's some more going down in '64. 


    And this time they're not going like they went last year. They're not going singing ''We Shall Overcome." They're not going with white friends. They're not going with placards already painted for them. They're not going with round-trip tickets. They're going with one way tickets. And if they don't want that non-nonviolent army going down there, tell them to bring the filibuster to a halt.


    The black nationalists aren't going to wait. Lyndon B. Johnson is the head of the Democratic Party. If he's for civil rights, let him go into the Senate next week and declare himself. Let him go in there right now and declare himself. Let him go in there and denounce the Southern branch of his party. Let him go in there right now and take a moral stand -- right now, not later. Tell him, don't wait until election time. If he waits too long, brothers and sisters, he will be responsible for letting a condition develop in this country which will create a climate that will bring seeds up out of the ground with vegetation on the end of them looking like something these people never dreamed of. In 1964, it's the ballot or the bullet.


    Thank you.

  • WORLD WIDE AFRICA THE VOICE OF THE PAN AFRICAN MOVEMENT

    in Politics

     


    What is nation building? What importance does it have on the PAN AFRICANIST? Really do you all understand that to be a nationalist and not be pro-active as to the only nations we come from on the Continent of Africa is counterproductive?  You may have not been born in Africa but your Skin complexion of many shades of EARTH tones declaring your African Nationality without you opening your mouths. This plus the fact that you want Justice for your captivity and slaughter of your ancestors makes you a Pan Africanist.


    "The political philosophy of black nationalism means that the black man should control the politics and the politicians in his own community; no more. The black man in the black community has to be re-educated into the science of politics so he will know what politics is supposed to bring him in return. Don't be throwing out any ballots. A ballot is like a bullet. You don't throw your ballots until you see a target, and if that target is not within your reach, keep your ballot in your pocket. 


    The political philosophy of black nationalism is being taught in the Christian church. It's being taught in the NAACP. It's being taught in CORE meetings. It's being taught in SNCC Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee meetings. It's being taught in Muslim meetings. It's being taught where nothing but atheists and agnostics come together. It's being taught everywhere. Black people are fed up with the dillydallying, footing, compromising approach that we've been using toward getting our freedom. We want freedom now, but we're not going to get it saying "We Shall Overcome." We've got to fight until we overcome." MALCOLM EL HAJI MALIK SHABAZ

    WITHROW TOO LATE TO ABSTAIN

    in News

    Withrow too late to abstain


    Supervisor Terry Withrow is too late to abstain on the vote to support the downtown Modesto community benefit district.


    He has already voted by investing $1000 in the NEW CITY CLUB, which is a group that organized and created the community benefit district.


    The new city club will have its own boundaries, its own police force, it’s own rules and regulations, and will eventually have access to $1 million a year, in assessments on property owners.


    After the district is approved and taxes are collected Withrow’s $1000 contribution will be returned.


    Other club members will also have their money returned by taxpayers in the district.


    Although the County and the city do not pay taxes on our buildings, they have agreed that they will voluntarily give tax payers money to the new city club.


    Public properties will also be allowed to vote for the new city club, giving those in favor of the new city, a 15% head start in the vote.


    Property owners are being asked to vote a second ballot because of a “technical error” with the first ballot.


    We don’t know what was wrong with the first ballot,, we do know that Chamber of Commerce Pres. Dave Gianelli is making phone calls seeking support for the new city.


    Finally, deputy city manager Brent Sinclair was asked for a list of the members of the new city club and their contribution. (INVESTMENTS)


    Sinclair claimed that he needed 14 days to provide that information.

    WORLD WIDE AFRICA THE VOICE OF THE PAN AFRICAN MOVEMENT

    in Politics

    My understanding of Malcolm's "THE BALLOT OR THE BULLET" is steeped in the knowledge of the Slave law or Code de Noir. In chapter 7, "FREE SOCIAL WORSHIP AND RELIGIOUS WORSHIP AND RELIGIOUS INSTRUCTION PROHIBITED"..The Government not only permits the Master to forbid the free social worship and religious instruction of his slaves, at his pleasure, but it also steps in with direct prohibitions of its own, which even the Master himself may not relax or abrogate..........He is restrained, as we have seen, from bestowing upon his slave, an education that would increase his usefulness, or of employing him to do any kind of writing! The slave may be used so, as to be used up in SEVEN YEARS; may be used as ad breeder, as. Prostitute, as an attendant at the gaming tables, as a subject of MEDICAL AND SURGICAL EXPERIMENTS FOR THE BENEFIT OF SCIENCE, an d the Legislature makes no  objections against it. "William Goodell


     "By ballot I only mean freedom. Don't you know -- I disagree with Lomax on this issue -- that the ballot is more important than the dollar? Can I prove it? Yes. Look in the UN. There are poor nations in the UN; yet those poor nations can get together with their voting power and keep the rich nations from making a move. They have one nation -- one vote, everyone has an equal vote. And when those brothers from Asia, and Africa and the darker parts of this earth get together, their voting power is sufficient to hold Sam in check. Or Russia in check. Or some other section of the earth in check. So, the ballot is most important.

  • Open Talk: A Conversation with Arlington County Leaders

    in Lifestyle

    Murray “Jay” Farr was appointed Chief of Police in May 2015. Prior to his appointment, Jay served in the Arlington County Police Department (ACPD) for 23 years, where he served in a variety of positions, including assignments as Acting Police Chief, Deputy Chief of Police for Systems Management, Operations, and Criminal Investigations. He has also served as Arlington County Acting Deputy County Manager.   Jay is also a U.S. Marine veteran, where he served with the Presidential helicopter unit.   Jay earned Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees from George Mason University and he has undertaken study in a number of educational programs, including the Naval Post Graduate School CDHS,  FBI National Academy, Leadership Arlington and Senior Institute for Police Management – Boston College in conjunction with John F. Kennedy School of Business Management, Harvard University. He is Adjunct Professor at George Mason University, where he teaches a curriculum of criminal justice and emergency management for law enforcement.


    Ms. Karen Nightengale currently serves as President of the NAACP Arlington Branch. Prior to her election in December 2014, she served as first vice president of the Arlington branch of the NAACP for five years. Ms. Nightengale succeeded Mr. Elmer L.H. Lowe, Sr., who served as branch president since 2008.  The Arlington branch of the NAACP was founded in 1940 and its members meet on the third Monday of each month at 7 p.m. at Walter Reed Community Center.  From the ballot box to the classroom, the thousands of dedicated workers, organizers, leaders and members who make up the NAACP continue to fight for social justice for all Americans.  This should be a very rewarding conversation all listeners.
