Corporate States of America

Is there somebody out there who can tell me when and why it has begun to be legal to deny a few the right to vote? I thought we took care of that during the historic marches of the civil rights of 1960’s?

A lot of pundits and educated people have been quoted saying that the United States is very much like ancient Rome. Just like during the fall of Rome, our civil rights are slowly being taken from us. Just like the ancient Romans. Just like as long as we have beer and reality TV we are perfectly happy to turn over our rights of the magic people, which promise us safety, toys and the right kind of entertainments. All this just for the price of freedom. After all we really don’t understand what freedom is or how to use freedom is, right? So how will we miss it? Isn’t that something the Devil says when he is trying to buy a soul?

I mean those corporations seem to know how to handle freedom better than we do, right?  I mean just look at the price gouging and toxic waste spills.  Corporations have agreed to clean these spills up. Right?  That is along as there is an EPA to pay for the clean-up and provide the personal to do the dangerous cleanings.  As for the price gouging oh well a few appeals and a few donations to the right campaign funds bring that down to something much more ‘agreeable’.

With Corporations totally in charge, these poor abused corporations wouldn’t have to worry this would they. I mean aren’t those poor corporations are so put upon,.  Just Never mind the sickness their chemical and toxic chemical drops will cause.  After all, if we spend our resources making a profit for a very few and already very wealthy citizens, will do this country so much good. Won’t It?

Let’s talk about how well corporations are taking care of right to voting rights shall we?   This last November a 93-year-old World War II veteran is denied his right to vote. The right, which he risked his life in World War II to protects, Rights he watched friends and fellow soldiers, die to protect. The reason William Parsely, the Vote Judge, gave the reason for his denial ‘was that according to current voting laws in Texas’ the fact he did not have a current drivers. Our Veteran had his expired driver’s license plus several other forms of picture ID, but this was not enough. He need’s that all important driver’s license

Voting Judge William Parsely said he had advised the 93-year old veteran to go over to the closest motor vehicle station and renew his license the comeback and cast his ballot. After all there was plenty of time before the polls close. So our veteran than has to go to the DMV. So after standing in line for anywhere up to five hours to get to a DMV desk. Our veteran must then explain to another ‘public servant’ that the medical reasons, he allowed his license expire some 20+ years ago, are no longer valid. Makes me wonder when the last time Judge Parsely’s was in a DMV?

Fiancee Green Card

Okay, back to work. I am a Paralegal, not an Attorney. So in no way are these articles to be, considered as taken to be, taken as legal advice.  These articles are legal information only. Let us not forget that when a Paralegal and or an Attorney becomes involved your problem becomes an  Issue.

If you start down Fiancée Green Card road, you should know approval  is going to cost you $340. The only real requirements are that your Intendant be legally single at the time of your proposal. Plus that you have met your intendant in person at least once. It would sure be a whole lot better if you showed that  the two of you have met more than once and have had an ongoing e-mail relationship.  Also,   just like the marriage green card, If  your intendant has minor children and their other parent is out of the picture those children come to the States with their parent.  It just takes filling out the right set of forms and making sure all those forms are completed correctly and turned in at the correct times.

Now as to the forms you are going to need. The first one is I-129F. This bad boy’s instructions are nine pages long. So, if you are doing this one on your own please God, find a paralegal or a lawyer to help.

Now here is the catch this marriage must take place within ninety days of getting your intendant’s arrival in the United States.  IF, for some reason, your wedding doesn’t happen, your intendant could face a boat load of troubles. Anything from being jailed to enforceable deportation. Plus it will place major roadblocks in your intendants further attempts to immigrate. Having a failed wedding without cause on their record could hamstring them Even if they find someone else willing to marry them.

However, if there are valid reasons the marriage did not take place.  Reasons such rape or assault.  An intended could try again or ask to apply for other types of green cards.

Okay, Now comes the paperwork part. As soon as your Pastor or your Judge says you do you, your independent must get started on the real paperwork right away. Your intendant still needs to file Forms I-765 and I-485.  If these forms don’t get turned in, your intendant could still find themselves deported.  Also, let us not forget about form I-130, which will a get visas for any minor children your intendant wishes to bring with them. This  form does include step-children as long as they came into the custody of your intendant care before the child’s 18th birthday.

Opinion: If your intendant does have minor boys and wishes to bring them There is one form that should turn in at the same time you turn in a Fiancee Visa application.  Form I-130

SIDE-NOTE:  After your marriage ceremony is over, your new spouse can sponsor the Immigration of children over the age of 21 years.  Your new spouse would be able to sponsor parents and or their cousins.

Next time I am gong to talk about voting rights. Then back to immigration.

GI Concentration Camp Least We Forget

Forgive me as I divert yet again. This week I want to talk about something I’ve recently discovered. A buried fact about World War II. Just so you know Being a veteran make these things are extremely important to me. 360 American soldiers captured by the Nazis were sent to Berga a sub-camp of the Buchenwald labor camp, be tortured, to starve, and to die.
After the Battle of the Bulge something like 81,000 American soldiers were killed or captured. 23,000 Americans soldiers here packed into trains so tight that if one of them died or fainted they couldn’t be laid out or tended too. A remember a number plenty of stories about Jews being treated the same way. These soldiers were taken to another encampment to be processed. While being quote processed our soldiers were asked for their name, their rank, and their religion. Asking a soldiers contrary to what their officers told them they were asked for their religion. Which went against while being processed word came down that all Jews were to be separated and sent it Buchenwald.
I have learned of those 23,000 soldiers, 360 soldiers American soldiers were separated from the 23,000 to be sent to Berga labor camp. The Nazi’s that were running this processing center had received orders demanding 360 American Jews to be sent Berga. Berga was a sub-camp of Buchenwald used foe slave labor and extermination. Unfortunately there only 80 Jews among the 23,000 soldiers. So these blood thirsty savages made up the difference by taking soldiers that looked Jewish, those they thought had Jewish names and soldiers with a little too much mouth. Buchenwald and its sub-camp Berga were among worst extermination camps in operation. Our soldiers arrived at Berga on February 13, 1945.
Buchenwald and Berga of the worst extermination camps built by Nazis. These camps were created for the express purpose of eliminating Jews and Gypsy. Plus the mentally retarded, physically handicapped, homosexuals and intellectuals’ that disagreed with Hitler openly were “evacuated” or ‘relocated’ to these camps. The slave labor sent to ‘Camp” Berga were used to mine and excavate huge underground caverns were certain industries were to be moved. Three Different industries like rockets, jet fuel manufacturing and research into new fuels was to be built-in these caverns safe from enemy bombing
Just like the Jews on one side of a fence these soldiers were forced to live and work in conditions unfit for abused and neglected animals. Their only medic despite desperate pleas received no aid managed with his life endangered managed to keep a record. They were forced to work in mine caverns without any of the safety equipment. Such as air cleaners and showers so the air they were forced to work in a place where the air became deadly.

Next time I swear to start with the Finance Green Card or bringing someone home you would like to marry.

Green Marriage

As I have said before and must say yet again. I am a paralegal not a lawyer, so this is in no way to be taken as, meant to be or construed as legal advice. This is legal information only. Let’s not forget that when a Paralegal and or a Lawyer becomes involved your problem becomes an ISSUE.
Okay Folks, last time we talked it was about the Green Card Lottery, now let us talk about another way to a green card. A K-3 non-immigrant visa or Marriage Green Card.
There is a long-standing fairy tale, that with a quickie marriage an immigrant cannot be deported. For once married an immigrant automatically becomes an US Citizen. If that was ever true it no longer true. It is possible to use marriage to become a U.S. lawful permanent residence or help an immigrant get a green card.
Most marriages are recognized unless they come into conflict separately with federal law. For example same-sex marriages were not recognized until the Defense of Marriage Act was repealed in 2013.
However don’t ever believe one of these marriage is a quick fix. Once you have completed all the paperwork and gathered all the evidence needed, it could almost two years to get that application processed. That is if all the forms and documents I’s were doted and T’s were correctly crossed the first time. Let us not forget ‘clerical error’.
Okay let’s start with marriage and children and the paperwork involved…
If the intended spouse comes from a country that recognize and accept same-sex marriage and the couple chose marriage then the marriage must take place in the spouse’s country. Then the United States will recognize such a marriage as legal and valid. The same holds true if a marriage takes place in one of the States that recognized same-sex marriage granting a spouse all the same rights and privileges a marriage visa grants heterosexual marriage.
Unfortunately minor children are not automatically included in A K-3 non-immigrant visa or the Marriage Green Card. However with a little more paperwork the can be.
1. So if a foreign spouse was married once before or fooled around a little while somewhat younger and now has a couple minor aged children. A foreign spouse does not have to leave or abandon them when a spouse marries an American citizen. You just include Form I-130, U.S. citizen immediate relative with the marriage visa application. This application is supposed to be given equal processing priority the same as your K-3 Marriage Green Card application. Same-sex applications that include an I-130 are to be treated just the same.

You know there are a lot of different types of Green Cards associated with a Marriage Green Card. Like a fiancé visa, visas to bring Mom and Pop and or Cousin Fred.

Next week more on the Green Card Marriage.

Green Card Lottery?

Once again, I am a paralegal not an attorney. So this is in no way meant to be, taken as, or construed as legal advice. This Blog is intended to be legal information only. Also let us not forget that when a lawyer and or a paralegal becomes involved your problem becomes an ISSUE.
Okay, let’s get this show started than. I think we’ll started with the infamous Green Card. The quote Green Card was created in the 1950’s as part of the Immigration and Nationality Act. A Green Card had two major purposes. First as Photo-ID Card issued to a foreign national. Then it allows an alien to live, work and pay taxes in the United States. A Green Card holder gets to do this without giving up citizenship in their home country. Yes, Martha legal immigrants do have to pay taxes.
However over the years the term Green Card has become generic. Meaning everything from a immigration Photo-ID Card, to allowing an applicant to attend school in this country. It to even includes the type of ink used to validate a travel visa when you come back from abroad.
Believe it or not there is a Green Card lottery. Playing the Green Card Lottery is only slightly more complicated than playing power-ball. You see Instead of buying a scratch ticket like for any of the money lotteries, all an applicant fills out a set of forms including a photo submitting them online. Each year the State Department accepts Lottery applications from October 1 to November 3. Than all an applicant has to set back and wait. Hoping and praying to win.
Side-Note: Until 2009 a lottery applicant could mail in hard copies to the US State Department but now an applicant can only submit their application online.
Note: If an applicant wins they can bring their spouse and or children with them if they were listed on the entrance application.
This Green Card lottery is held each a year by the US State Department not Homeland Security. Each year, 55,000 immigrant visas (Green Cards) are awarded in this lottery. This Green Card lottery was created as an official program pursuant to Sec. 203 (c) of the Immigration and Nationality Act. The idea behind this is to diversify who immigrate to our county. Opening the door to immigrants from 3rd and 4th world countries. This Green Card lottery is also supposed to open the door for low-income emigrates from other countries.
According to the rules there is only two things that can disqualify an applicant’s Green Card lottery application. First is trying to enter the lottery from a country on the disavowed list. Such as Brazil,
Ecuador and or the Dominicans Republic who are on the State Departments naughty list. other countries like Great Britain and or India who were disavowed for other reasons. Than not having the skills or education an applicant claims to have
WARNING: The countries on the State Departments naughty list. This list of naughty countries changes and changes frequently. So keep an eye on that list.
Now here is the catch if an applicant wins the State Department will not notify them. An applicant has to go online every few weeks. Just to see if they had won. The only thing a winner has to pay are the travel costs to get them here.

Getting a Green Card?

With what is going on in Texas and Arizona, I have decided to explore Immigration Law. Besides, I think most of you know my real reason for becoming so concerned about what happens to ‘just a few damn illegals’; SO,
As before I am a paralegal, I am not a lawyer. My articles are in no way intended to be, to be taken as, construed for or mistaken for legal advice. This is legal information only. Intended to equip you ask the best questions. Questions, you need to get the best help from your lawyer. Let’s not forget that when a lawyer of a paralegal becomes involved your problem becomes an ISSUE.
One of the areas I want to get into, is why so many people are using the backdoor trying to get into America. Instead of using the quote front door.
First thing, I found out is the sheer cost. It will cost an immigration applicant as much as $30,000 in fees to get a Green Card. This of course is spread out over the 180 days it is supposed to take to accomplish all the requirements needed to get a Green Card. That is if you complete all the assigned tasks get all the paper work filled out correctly the 1st time.
I have talked to a number of lawyers and they tell me it is extremely difficult to make it through getting a Green Card. It seems that Green Card applicants are faced with there are a lot of seemingly deliberate and not quite accidental set of the obstacles.
All right, let’s start with notifications. An applicant is supposed to receive a letter letting them know when and where to report, to get fingerprinted or when they can see a judge etc. Now according to Amin Law; I have read notification letter is supposed to arrive in plenty of time for an applicant to prepare for and accomplish a task listed in the letter. You know Locate the office were they have to be, get the day off work, hire a babysitter, whatever. Just so you know some applicants are living a considerable distances from any of Immigration’s scattered offices.
Now for the bad news, I have been told by several lawyers that applicants are getting their notification letters with as little as 24hr notice. Sometimes the day of and even the day after an applicant was supposed to appear.
Now, if a Green Card applicant fails to appear for any court room appearances, or misses or is late for any of appointment they were ‘notified’ of with staff and or contract examiner their application is automatically dismissed. To begin the process all over, including paying all those fees all over again.
Just so you know all the application, processing and finger printing background check fees are lost. Forcing the applicant to start the entire process over from the beginning.
Next time I will try to explore some of the changes to Immigration Law since 1940

Child safety/Child Dump 2014

I am sorry for being late with this post is late but I have been quite ill. Believe me I don’t think you want to know the details.

To begin with I was watching NOW with Alex Wagner on 7/9/2014 and became really confused.  A Texas Repressive Julian Castro stated that it is imperative these children be deported, so they can be reunited with their loving parents. That it doesn’t matter what is going on around a child as long as that child is with a loving parents.

Then, I see an interview with a parent that came with one of the children. She brought her child here from El Salvador. This refugee told a reporter how they had to pay an existence tax to a Cartel that ruled the region her village was in.  She told how her 8 year old daughter disappeared one day while out playing. Her husband having his legs crushed for daring to look for his little girl. Than about six months later Cartel toughs came into burst their home and executed their eldest son. Why?  Their 12 year old had refused to become a servant. His Daddy said they were bad people. These monsters came again not 8 days later killed her husband for nonpayment of the existence tax.

Side-note: Existence tax is a fee villagers have to pay for the right to breath.  

Other reporters told stories of toddlers were killed for no other reason than to test a gun. These inhuman creatures said it was to check if the gun had been properly repaired or to test a new guns.  Sometimes, they would kill just for the fun of it. Some children were used as experimental animals to test the purity of their drugs. She told,

 How boys and girls of all ages were being taken and sold to God knows what Fate. Men who in anger and frustration spoke of fighting back where hunted down and mutilated. This was done as a lesson to their village.  The Refugee told the reporter that after her husband was killed. The creature who shot him told her she has 3 day to come up with the she owed in existence tax or her last child would be killed in front of her. So she took her last remaining child a 6 year old boy and fled north.

This is a good environment for a child? Even if a parent pleads and begs for their child to be taken to safety?

Again, I wonder? During World War II didn’t we accept refugee children from Britain?  Was there not an extremely brave couple who rescued 50 children from the Jewish ghettos? Saving them from Nazi Ovens. Was it wrong to save them from the Ovens?  Would it have been better to leave them there to die with their parents?  Even though just about every parent pleaded and begged that their child be rescued?

I have heard many so stories of one or two heroes rescuing large numbers of children in need of leading them to safety sometimes here in the United States. Were they wrong?  Did they do more harm than good?
