SORT BY Relevancy
When an immigrant violates U.S. immigration laws, The DHS is the umbrella agency for sub-agencies like ICE and USCIS. DHS, ICE, USCIS and all other sub-agencies are collectively called the “government.”The Immigration Court (IC) was set up to settle two main issues: First, it determines an alien’s admissibility. Second, it determines an alien’s removability/deportability (only the government is allowed to initiate removal proceedings). As an example, to initiate removal the ICE issues a Notice to Appear (NTA), which is filed with the Immigration Court (IC). After the NTA is filed, the IC sends out a Notice of Hearing (NOH) to the Respondent (in the immigration court setting, the alien is always the respondent), Removal/deportation becomes a legal action once the Government has initiated a lawsuit against an alien. In any legal action there are two parties: Plaintiff/Petitioner/Movant versus Defendant/Respondent.Although respondents can represent themselves, it’s not a good idea because the government has its own lawyer to represent it before the IC. In addition, based on the facts available, the respondent’s attorney may help them identify relief, which is what is presented to the IJ to show why the respondent might be able to stay in the U.S.The NTA contains factual allegations and the charges (what the government uses to determine if the respondent is removable/deportable).

Dr. May Caprio and Linda Cundiff will unlock some mysteries and myths around sleep. How can we get better sleep, even if we're living with chronic pain? We'll find out the answers to these questions and more on June 3, 2015 at 3pm.
True or False?
1. The more sleep I get, the healthier I'll be.
2. Waking up at night means that I'll be tired the next day.
3. Snoring is common and totally harmless.
4. It's important to always keep track of how much I sleep.
5. Pain increases the amount of time in Stage 1 light sleep.
Dr. May Caprio is a registrant of the College of Psychologists of British Columbia providing psychological services for the Pain Program at the Royal Jubilee Hospital in Victoria as a member of the interdisciplinary team. She has practiced in the area of pain management, neuropsychology and brain injury. She has been a consultant in private industry, providing psychological assessments, individual psychotherapy and marriage counselling, and has given presentations on sleep, memory enhancement, stress management, and optimal performance.

Elizabeth M. Christy lives in Northern Virginia with her husband James, son Jimmy (5), and daughter Lucy (newborn). She is the best-selling author of the children’s book "Why Does Mommy Hurt? Helping Children Cope with having a Caregiver with Chronic Pain, Fibromyalgia, or Autoimmune Disease," and blogs on parentswithpain.com and potomacfallsmama.blogspot.ca. Additionally, she works as a Systems Integrator for TASC. In addition to basic survival, Elizabeth enjoys writing, sewing (especially in straight lines!), and reading good memoirs.
“Why Does Mommy Hurt?” is a great resource to talk to children about chronic pain and illness. On this episode, we'll discuss the guilt and shame many parents suffering from chronic pain feel about their parenting. The fact is that parents with chronic pain or illness can be just as awesome as “normal” parents when it comes to raising kids, and if you love your kids, that’s all that matters. We may not be able to walk a mile to the playground, cook a 7-course organic meal from scratch, or volunteer on a field trip to the amusement park, but that’s not what really matters. If you love your kids, you will find your own way, and your kids will know it. Also, many parents in this situation feel very alone, especially when first diagnosed. There are millions of families out there in the same situation, you are not alone, and you have support out there waiting for you!
The last thing you want to think about at the end of a long day is what you’ll be making for dinner, and your family doesn’t need another meal from a bag or a box.
In this episode, you will learn 4 ways a crockpot can be your very best friend.

We just can't stand it another minute, and then miraculously, we find another way to numb out or tell ourselves a story to keep us from toppling the apple cart in our lives. A lifetime can be spent living in fear of disrupting life's patterns even though we are miserable. We will sweep things under the rug, avoid making decisions that are life-altering, because we don't want to deal with what could 'possibly' be messy or even a mistake...or a new beginning. So, we keep towing the rope in our relationships, job or projects we undertake....in the hope for a miracle or something from somewhere outside of us to shift our reality.
Except it never happens. At least not how we think it is supposed to, instead more pain arrives, perhaps even crisis occur, before we finally decide to REALLY live. Why wait? Learn how to get out of this soul crushing cycle.
This week we talk about the challenges faced by anyone who is male and suffering with Fibromyalgia. My special guests this week are Nick Lutes and his girlfriend Kimberly Magnus.

CS Lewis once said, "God whispers to us in our pleasures, speaks in our conscience, but shouts in our pains ...". Why? When we are in pain, that is when we want and need God the most. So why is it so difficult for us to hear our God when we hurt? We will explore this probing question today on FMGLIve! Also, tune in today for a very special announcement regarding our program and exciting developments to come! It's all live today at 3 pm on FMGLive!
