En Connecticut se están llevando a cabo reuniones para clarificar el panoarama. Una de las mas imprtantes se llevó a cabo el pasado 26 de Febrero en la Iglesia de San Agustín de Hartford, organizado por Greater Hartford Interfaith Coalition for Equity and Justice, donde participaron representantes del estado y la ciudad, además de numeroso público. En la ocasión se dieron testimonios de la situación de los trabajadores y las familias. Se habló de los derechos que aún asisten a los migrantes y los peligros que pueden atravesar los que no estén bien informados.
No son tiempos fáciles, hay cierto temor en todos lados, ya no sólo por la seguridad ante posibles atentados terroristas sino por el poco interés de una administración nacional de solucionar el problema de millones de inmigrantes. Es bueno estar alerta y mantener comunicación con los que mas saben sobre el tema.
Immigrants on Alert
Various hispanic and non-hispanic organizations all across the United States are currently working to see how they can better the situation for immigrants, now with the news about the future immigration laws which are right around the corner. The rumors which appear to be more and more certain to reality, say that congress will approve some national laws which will be very strict against immigrants, whether they are legal or “non-documented”. The increase in the budget for the wall being built to separate the border between United States and Mexico, and the increase in the number of officers patrolling that area is no secret. The appearance of national and state dispositions which restrict individuals who do not meet certain requirements. It also seems imminent that the police department will eventually be used as immigrant agents. Some proposals on the so called wide and integral reform of immigrants but the future continues to be uncertain.
In Connecticut some meetings are taking place to clarify the present situation. One of the most important of them took place this past February 26th at the Saint Augustine Church in Hartford, organized by the Greater Hartford Interfaith Coalition for Equity and Justice, where city and state representatives made themselves present as well as a large crowd. There were many testimonies from families and workers. One of the things mentioned was the rights that still pertain to inmigrants and the risks that people run who are not well informed.
Times are not easy, there is fear all around, it no longer comes for the security against any possible terrorist attacks but now also coming from the lack of interest being shown toward inmigrants by the national administration. This problem affects millions of inmigrants, it is recommended that people stay alerted and communicated with those who know more about this subject.
