The fact that they were here at all and perpetrated harm to citizens is the point. If they were not here the crime would not have occurred. United States citizens would still be alive. Harm would not have occurred. Mollie Tibbets would still be alive. Kate Steinle would still be alive. Sarah Root, Sgt. Brandon Mendoza, Dominic Durden, and hundreds of other Americans would still be alive were it not for crimes perpetrated against them by illegal immigrants.The following numbers were compiled by the Government Accountability Office (GAO) using official Department of Justice data on criminal aliens in the nation’s correctional system. The numbers were the basis for a presentation at a recent New Hampshire conference sponsored by the Center for Security Policy:-Between 2008 and 2014, 40% of all murder convictions in Florida were criminal aliens. In New York it was 34% and Arizona 17.8%. -During those years, criminal aliens accounted for 38% of all murder convictions in the five states of California, Texas, Arizona, Florida and New York, while illegal aliens constitute only 5.6% of the total population in those states.The GAO’s 2011 study shows that illegal immigrants had committed some 25,000 homicides, 42,000 robberies and nearly 70,000 sex offenses. That was back then.https://www.gao.gov/new.items/d11187.pdfWelcome the asylum-seeker. Welcome the stranger. Enforce our laws and secure Americans’ safety.

The deaths of the individuals you mentioned are indeed tragic, but they are not excuses to stereotype the vast majority of immigrants, documented and undocumented, who do not murder people.

Photo: David Price[Episcopal News Service] Episcopalians and their faith and community partners in a New Hampshire immigrant justice movement hope to build on the momentum gained during last week’s Solidarity Walk and a concluding prayer vigil held outside the county jail where federal immigrant detainees are held.The four-day trek covered about 40 miles from Manchester to Dover, with several dozen people joining at least one of the segments along the way. On the final day, Aug. 25, Diocese of New Hampshire Bishop Rob Hirschfeld was among the speakers who addressed a crowd of about 100 people gathered on the lawn in front of the Strafford County Jail.“Jesus said to have compassion for those who are in prison,” Hirschfeld told Episcopal News Service by phone on Aug. 27, recapping the experience. He compared it to his experience in July when hundreds of Episcopalians who were attending the 79th General Convention in Austin, Texas, gathered for a prayer service outside an immigrant detention facility in the area.New Hampshire Bishop Rob Hirschfeld speaks Aug. 25 outside the Strafford County jail in Dover during the prayer vigil that concluded the Solidarity Walk for Immigrant Justice. Photo: David Price“What I remember about both [vigils] is the Spanish sentence ‘te vemos’ – ‘we see you,’” Hirschfeld said. “The walk in New Hampshire was a way of our saying, ‘We see you, we value you, we see your plight.’ And I would also say we need to see ourselves and what this country is becoming, which is increasingly callous, brutal, insensitive to the suffering of our neighbors.”The New Hampshire Council of Churches was one of the lead organizers of the Solidarity Walk for Immigrant Justice, which sought to raise awareness of the plight of immigrants in the state at a time when much of the focus has been on conflict along the Mexican border, especially under the Trump administration’s “zero tolerance” policy toward immigrants crossing into the United States.As Hirschfeld mentioned, another goal was to offer support for those who have been detained or who face deportation, said the Rev. Jason Wells, an Episcopal priest who serves as executive director of the council. He also noted that the several days spent on the road have strengthened the state’s community of immigrant supporters.“There is a real shared experience, a real shared struggle in a way, to make the walk, and it brought us closer together,” he said. That solidarity is expected to carry through to the weekly prayer vigils held outside the offices of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement in Manchester, with the next one scheduled for Aug. 28.The Solidarity Walk kicked off with about 50 walkers, Wells said. About 25 people participated on each of the following two days, and participation rose to about 75 on the final day. Wells walked some of the segments and served as a support vehicle driver on other segments.The walkers were met by a mix of reactions from the public. Negative responses ranged from drivers giving them thumbs down signs – or a certain other crude hand gesture – to people shouting, “build the wall,” a reference to President Donald Trump’s signature campaign promise of a border wall.But many people gave honks of support, and walkers were greeted by other “pieces of solidarity,” Wells said. They were joined on one segment by a Christian leader from the local Indonesian immigrant community, who was stopped along the way by an Indonesian Muslim leader offering words of support. At another point, U.S. Sen. Jeanne Shaheen visited with the walkers and wished them well.A family from El Salvador joined the walk for some of the segments, and their stories of fleeing to the United States and seeking asylum filled the walkers’ conversations with a sense of purpose as friendships were formed around a common cause, said the Rev. Gail Avery, the Diocese of New Hampshire’s canon for transition and community engagement.“It was amazing to see the support that we did get along the way,” said Avery, who participated on the first three days. “We had people that came out of their houses, offered us water, offered us a bathroom break, which was amazing.”Avery’s commitment to working for immigrant justice has been strengthened by the experience of passing through a checkpoint that the Border Patrol had set up on a highway through her state. As a white woman driving alone, she was waved through without delay, but she suspects that if she had been traveling with her daughter-in-law – a Salvadoran immigrant – authorities would not have let her pass without stopping her.“I just believe that we are a land of liberty and freedom, and we’re a land of immigrants, a nation of immigrants, and we have just lost sight of it,” she said.The Strafford County jail, one of six facilities in New England holding immigration detainees for the federal government. Photo: David PriceThe Episcopal Church’s support for immigrants, including those facing deportation, was underscored last month by the 79th General Convention, which passed multiple resolutions on immigration issues.The church and other faith communities are not taking political stances but rather pushing back against “the tyranny of ideology over humanity,” Hirschfeld said. Respecting the dignity of all humans is part of Episcopalians’ baptismal covenant, he said, and that message will live on in the ongoing prayer vigils held in Manchester when immigrants are called to check in with federal authorities.The only thing that might change now at the vigils is the footwear, Wells said.“We’ll see if people need to buy some new shoes before they go,” he said, after walking so many miles last week.– David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for the Episcopal News Service. He can be reached at [email protected] Tags Jordan Sakal says: August 28, 2018 at 9:35 am According to one of the organizers, some of these immigrants came to the United States on work visas that have since expired, so they are trying to gain permanent residency status. Others are asylum seekers or refugees or have temporary protected status because the federal government at some point determined it was unsafe for them to return to their home country. Whatever their situation, they are required to check in at regular intervals with federal authorities while their legal cases progress. Sometimes those authorities detain them, though it isn’t clear there is any one reason for this. Rector Washington, DC Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC August 29, 2018 at 4:41 pm Given the recently released parochial report numbers for the Diocese of New Hampshire, one could be forgiven for thinking that the Bishop of NH should be focused on energizing his diocese rather than the state’s immigration justice efforts.

The site was splendid; although there was a fire some years ago it is regenerating rapidly. It has a brilliant view of the San Juan reservoir. The house is an autonomous prism, closed off from the exterior with now and then apertures with view of the reservoirs landscapes. It is a weekend house, therefore it was asked of us to incorporate a controlled and manageable security system. In fact it is almost a concrete bunker, inaccessible and blinded from outsiders except the glass spaces which are high enough to pose no safety issues. In its exterior appearance the house is extraordinarily simple, it has a rectangular ground plan which gives natural solutions to the complexity of the program.

Lawsuits aim to intimidate Brazilian journalists over rape trial coverage

first_img RSF_en RSF begins research into mechanisms for protecting journalists in Latin America Follow the news on Brazil News 2011-2020: A study of journalist murders in Latin America confirms the importance of strengthening protection policies Reporters Without Borders (RSF) condemns the defamation suits brought against two Brazilian media outlets and a reporter over a shocking story about a rape trial in which the defence lawyer verbally attacked and humiliated the alleged victim. The lawsuits, which refer to reporters as “snipers in journalists’ clothing,” are intended to retaliate against investigative journalism and threaten press freedom, RSF says. December 22, 2020 Lawsuits aim to intimidate Brazilian journalists over rape trial coverage News Published by The Intercept Brasil on 2 November after previously appearing on the ND+ website in September, Schirlei Alves’s story revealed severe misconduct during the trial, in which influencer Mariana Ferrer accused businessman André de Camargo Aranha of rape. In particular, the aggressiveness with which Ferrer was questioned by the defendant’s attorney – especially clear in the video footage accompanying in the report – caused an outcry. Aranha ended up being acquitted.The prosecutor, Thiago Carriço de Oliveira, and the judge, Rudson Marcos, both brought defamation suits against Alves and the two media outlets, seeking the story’s removal from their websites and damages of 300,000 and 450,000 reais from each, respectively.In response to the big outcry, two federal judicial oversight bodies – the National Council of Justice (CNJ) and the National Council of the Public Ministry (CNMP) – meanwhile announced investigations into the conduct of the prosecutor and judge during the hearing.The lawyer acting for both Carriço and Marcos claims that The Intercept Brasil and ND+ deliberately published fake news. “Attacks of this nature, promoted and boosted by these media outlets, are in fact attacks directed at the judiciary, with the clear goal of demoralizing the institution,” she says. The expression “fake news” appears 60 times in her pleadings, which also label The Intercept Brasil’s reporters as “snipers in journalists’ clothing.”In a preliminary decision issued on 11 December, a local civil court judge ordered that the report be corrected in order to clarify that the prosecutor did not use the term “culpable rape” – which Alves used in her piece. The judge also ruled that the report should point out that the prosecutor intervened during Ferrer’s questioning. The Intercept Brasil and Alves could face daily fines of 1,000 reais and 200 reais, respectively, if they fail to comply with this ruling.“It’s not the judiciary’s role to correct the media by means of court-imposed text editing and, although preliminary, this decision, sets a dangerous precedent for press freedom,” said Emmanuel Colombié, RSF’s regional director for Latin America. “These lawsuits are blatant retaliation against the targeted journalists and news organizations. By documenting and revealing background information about the ordeal faced by women who survive and denounce sexual violence in Brazil, this reporter’s story drew attention to a key public interest subject and complied with journalism’s mission to inform society.”Lawsuits designed to intimidate the press are common in Brazil. In an emblematic case in 2016, 37 judges and prosecutors in the southern state of Paraná filed individual libel suits against five employees of the Gazeta do Povo newspaper after it reported that the state’s judicial officials were being paid excessively large salaries. It should be noted that because of their positions, public authorities are subject to greater scrutiny by society and the press.Brazil is ranked 107th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2020 World Press Freedom Index.

Council to close emergency shelter in City

first_imgWhatsApp Limerick on Covid watch list Limerick city house prices rise 4.9% as time to sell falls Thefts of catalytic converters on the rise #crimeprevention Print LIMERICK City and County Council plans to close a temporary facility at Edenvilla on Lord Edward Street as part of its strategic plan for emergency accommodation provision.The low threshold facility, run by Novas, is open to men and women from 9pm to 9am. Latest figures show that 14 people are availing of the accommodation which has a capacity of 20.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Staff from the council’s housing support services department met with local representatives and residents who are concerned about the management of the temporary emergency provision (TEP) and told them that the council planned to close the temporary facility.“This, however, will not be done until appropriate accommodation is available. The recently announced Housing First programme will support these people currently using the facility at night time,” a Council spokesman explained.“The Housing First programme provides more appropriate accommodation to people as they will have the wrap-around supports they require to live independently.“It presents an opportunity to deal with long term entrenched homelessness, in an empowering positive step forward. All the evidence shows that this model works and makes a real difference to people’s lives and the homes they live in.”Tenders are still being accepted for this contract, with an evaluation process due to begin in the coming weeks.“Under no circumstances will the TEP at Edenvilla be closed without alternative accommodation being provided. The ideal situation is that emergency accommodation is not needed and that everyone is living in a home of their own,” he concluded.

DS News Webcast: Monday 2/3/2014

first_imgSign up for DS News Daily Is Rise in Forbearance Volume Cause for Concern? 2 days ago February 3, 2014 558 Views Related Articles DS News Webcast: Monday 2/3/2014 Nationally, home-selling speeds slowed again in December, but the pace still remains brisk in many markets. Online brokerage Redfin reports the median time on market for homes in its 21-city survey was 35 days in December, up three days from November. San Francisco and San Jose led the pack in market speed, with both cities posting a median market time of just 18 days. While that was a bit slower than November’s pace, it was still almost a week faster than Washington and Ventura, which came in second with a median 24 days on market. The slowest market was Philadelphia; homes in the City of Brotherly Love spent a median 72 days listed before going under contract.The nation’s homeownership rate ticked down slightly in the fourth quarter, according to government data. Figures released by the Census Bureau show the national homeownership rate slipping to 65.2%, down one-tenth of a percentage point from the third quarter. It was the lowest fourth-quarter rate since 1995. Still, it was an improvement compared to the first half of 2013, when homeownership stayed flat at an even 65%.

The Rocky Road for Non-Bank Servicers

first_img April 21, 2016 1,150 Views  Print This Post Dallas, Texas-based Nationstar Mortgage was the only one out of the three largest U.S. non-bank mortgage servicers rated by Moody’s to turn a profit during 2015, according to Moody’s Investors Service’s Servicer Dashboard on Thursday.Nationstar’s net income for 2015 was $43 million, while the other two largest servicers, Ocwen Financial Corp. and Walter Investment Management Corp., posted losses of $246.7 million and $263.2 million for last year, respectively.“Nationstar was the only large Moody’s-rated non-bank mortgage servicer to be profitable in 2015, and its net income was just $43 million,” said Warren Kornfeld, Moody’s analyst. “Concurrently, all three non-bank servicers’ reliance on confidence-sensitive, short-term funding heightens their liquidity and refinancing risk, while Walter faces the additional challenge of a weak capital position.”According to Moody’s, profitability has been weak for non-bank servicers over the last couple of years due to mortgage servicing right fair value adjustments, goodwill impairments, and higher regulatory expenses. Operating costs as a percentage of revenues for both Ocwen and Walter have risen as a result of intense regulatory scrutiny for residential mortgage servicers, according to Moody’s; however, Nationstar’s operating costs as a percentage of revenues have been more steady. Moody’s expects that Nationstar’s earnings will improve only marginally in 2016 as operating costs rise due to increased regulatory scrutiny.“Concurrently, all three non-bank servicers’ reliance on confidence-sensitive, short-term funding heightens their liquidity and refinancing risk, while Walter faces the additional challenge of a weak capital position.” Warren Kornfeld, Moody’s AnalystElsewhere in Moody’s Servicer Dashboard, Nationstar and Ocwen continued to have a higher level of loss mitigation than their bank peers in Q4 2015 while re-default rates on modifications either remained flat or improved slightly. The non-bank servicers also had lower missed payment to foreclosure referral timelines compared with bank mortgage servicers (less than one year on average for subprime for non-bank servicers, compared with more than two years for bank mortgage servicers). Subprime collection metrics continued to improve for all mortgage servicers, both bank and non-bank, in the country in the fourth quarter; Wells Fargo was tops in subprime, and CitiMortgage led in prime and Alt-A, according to Moody’s.New delinquencies and roll rates experienced declines in Q4, notably for subprime loans, largely as a result of ongoing improvements in the economy, according to Moody’s.
