As I close my eyes and drift away to a land where there is love, health, peace, and blessings. I wanted to take the time to think and reflect.
There is much to think about, where there was the unexpected, sudden death of Mrs. Barbara Bush, a series of deadly attacks, a few births, and also my own discovery through the research that I'm collecting. It was almost as though there was a brain attack. There were a wide variety of emotions, so I wondered what to write about, and decided to write about exactly this. While the many forces of life continue to take effect, we remember Former First Lady Barbara Bush, pray for the good health and well-being of George H.W. Bush as well. As we think of them, the life force continues, with this I mean that - life continues, we cannot put a sudden end to life, and all that it is asking of us. The horror I experienced about the discoveries of the undocumented, and Hispanic / Latino migrants living in the USA continues.
I thought some more, and I arrived at a conclusion. I believe that the treatment of the Hispanic / Latino undocumented, the DACA program recipients, and those "protected" through the DREAM Act is very close to criminalization, yes - Criminals! How can you tell individuals to leave a country, through a program that was created by the state? This is criminal. It's like sending thousands of invitations for a gathering, and then everyone attends, and then you tell them all to leave. In essence this action would be deemed inhospitable. In the same sense we can think deeper about the DACA recipients or the DREAM Act.
The DACA program was / is a great source of hope for the undocumented because it gives certain rights such as: *You can get a social security card In most states, you can get a driver’s license *Take the opportunity to build your credit score and apply for a credit card *Get a job with benefits such as healthcare Put utility bills in your name *Attend school for free for a certain amount of years
However, while the program which is granting some rights, it leaves out many. It is a flawed program. But for those who have no hope, or legal status, it can be said that it is better than nothing. But why in the 21st century, in probably the worlds wealthiest country do we have such problems? Why? When researchers, policy, and law makers know that the individuals should be granted rights? Such as pathways to citizenship, residency, or legal status. If anyone who has lived in a country for years, and even those who are born in the U.S., and lived without disclosing their birth to protect their families, and parents - It is unacceptable that they have lived in this fear. Denying themselves rights, to live in inferiority. More needs to be done. Anyone who is a DACA recipient, or who has claimed rights through the DREAM Act, should never have to fight, or fear leaving the USA, because this program was created by the State, the bills were passed, and they allowed millions to claim rights through this program. So instead of saying, go, we don't want you, it is better to claim some sort of responsibility, and protect everyone who is living in the nation. One is not superior to the other. DACA and The DREAM Act must be amended to include rights for citizenship, legal status, and also to ensure that there is education equity, at the higher education levels for all, and this should include the undocumented who have lived in the U.S. for years. If education is a human right, then why does in-equity continue because of race or ethnicity?
