Our government is continuing the legacy of using refugees and migrants as political pawns, destroying lives and families and communities which could flourish if given the respect for their human rights and inherent value •• the government continues to determine the value of migrant lives based on political leverage, race, and economic profit ••• the horrors of children and families sucked into another machine of the U.S. government are here, have been here, and talking about them must be talking about the contexts of imperialism, colonialism, military occupation and racism • don't let anyone speak about it or any other issue of migration without speaking on the legacy of US and western intervention and imperialism • don't let colonization, imperialism, military occupation, intervention, uneven trade agreements, or lopsided asylum and immigration policies get left out from the discussion •• don't let the narrative allow the powerful aggressors off the hook for the damage they have done #migration#asylum#refugees#immigration#narrative#speak#speakonit#tellit#learn#history#immigrantrights#colonialism#imperialism#injustice#resist#defy#speakup

So you want to come to Canada…Great!
But where exactly?
How do you decide what province/territory to settle in, considering the fact that there are about 13 of them: Alberta, Ontario, British Columbia, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Quebec (French-speaking), New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Northwest Territories, Nunavut, Prince Edward Island, Newfoundland & Labrador and Yukon.
There are certain factors to consider when choosing what province to settle in. Most would consider:
1. A province where they already have close friends or relatives who could give them soft landing and help cushion the effects of a series of culture shock.
2. A province where there’s a higher chance of getting employment in your field/skill. For instance, persons in the oil and gas industry would naturally pick Alberta over Ontario; persons in the IT field would settle for British Columbia; for automobile industry/manufacturing/journalism, Ontario would be your best bet. Do your research – online, ask friends – before making the move.
3. A province with mild weather conditions. Some locations are colder/warmer than others.
4. A province with lower cost of living. Some provinces are more cost-effective than others. The cost of living – food, housing, healthcare needs and taxes differ from province to province. Alberta is arguably the most advantageous province for relocation when it comes to cost of living.

We would like to congratulate one of our staff members, Juliana Perez Calle, for being admitted to the bar and for being sworn in as a lawyer. She is an inspiration for all Latinx students who are interested in studying law and supporting their community, Juliana says, “Just like our immigrant and other oppressed communities continue to serve us, as young professionals we must do all we can to serve them back, and as Martin Luther King Jr said ‘greatness is determined by service’ and so it is truly our community and our commitment to service that makes us GREAT.”- Juliana Perez Calle 🇨🇴
Daniel Castro Garcia’s “Foreigner” is an ongoing multi-disciplinary project that challenges the visual culture and political rhetoric used to represent the migrant and refugee crisis in Europe. The artist began the project in May 2015 in response to the British media’s coverage of two migrant vessels that capsized in the Mediterranean in April 2015, claiming an estimated 1,000 lives.
Adjectives such as ‘cockroaches’ were used to describe those on board as well as others who attempted these journeys to Europe. This tone and caliber of language, together with other examples of media and political spin, have altered the geopolitical landscape of Europe. Growing conservative and nationalist political movements have contributed to the hysteria surrounding migration into Europe, replacing well-balanced and considered analysis of a situation that is not black-and-white.
An online image search using the words ‘migrants Europe’ or ‘refugees Europe’ produces chaotic scenes of hundreds of people defined by a single moment that is often violent, traumatic, and pitiful. There are no names and no personal accounts. The dignity and stories of the individuals in question must be protected and clearly communicated.

“I have a few Asian friends who are trans, not many at all. I identify for convenience as a trans man, and at this point, most of the time I’m seen as a girl, which means I’m treated like one in the world, and I accordingly get misogynist racism; it would be different if I was clocked as trans, if people could see. That might change in the future.
My mum seems to have adjusted better to me being trans than my dad, but I don’t know how much of that is down to his personal character, and how much of it is down to his background. He has explicitly said to me that they never talked about these things growing up. There’s little to no acceptance in Malaysia if you’re gay or trans. There’s just no way. Malaysia’s probably one of the worst places in the world to be LGBT, and China isn’t great either. In fact, Malaysia once published a list of ways to spot a gay person in the newspaper. So I can understand it being hard to adjust to, but people need to. It also helps, I think, that my boyfriend just calls me his boyfriend all the time, and he never slips up with my pronouns.
It’s okay if people fuck up, they just need to show that they are trying to do something. Honestly, I have no idea what being trans would be like in Malaysia when I visit in the future; I don’t know when I’ll really get the chance to check because it costs so much money to fly over.” (London, United Kingdom)
▪️На что обратить внимание при покупке готового бизнеса в США?
✔️В первую очередь, потенциальные инвесторы должны учитывать визовые требования к бизнесу.

Via the @nytimes: A diminutive woman with only two years of education who came to the United States speaking no English, Ms. Morales has had an unusual window into one of the president’s favorite retreats: She has cleaned the president’s villa while he watched television nearby; she stood on the sidelines when potential cabinet members were brought in for interviews and when the White House chief of staff, John Kelly, arrived to confer with the president. “I never imagined, as an immigrant from the countryside in Guatemala, that I would see such important people close up,” she said.
But Ms. Morales said she has been hurt by Mr. Trump’s public comments since he became president, including equating Latin American immigrants with violent criminals. It was that, she said, along with abusive comments from a supervisor at work about her intelligence and immigration status, that made her feel that she could no longer keep silent. “We are tired of the abuse, the insults, the way he talks about us when he knows that we are here helping him make money,” she said. “We sweat it out to attend to his every need and have to put up with his humiliation.” #defineamerican#immigration
In mid-October, a group of asylum seekers met in San Pedro Sula, Honduras, to form a group with a common destination: the US-Mexico border. As the caravan moved through Mexico City, photographer @brett_gundlock set up a simple white backdrop in a temporary encampment, where the group was resting for a few days. Gundlock then followed the group north, all the way to Mexicali where many are now currently stuck—waiting to apply for asylum or weighing other options, including returning to their home countries.
This weekend we will be highlighting Gundlock's work, which includes photos, videos, and testimonials. The reality of the dire situation quickly becomes inescapable: the future for these migrants and asylum seekers is as uncertain today as the day they started their journey.
This is Kenia Arias who had to leave her six-month-old baby at home, and she said gangs killed members of her family. “It’s very hard to leave the family, and yes, it really hurts, and one does the impossible to seek the American dream, to seek a better future, a better life, because in our country, you cannot even live,” she said. “They want to kill you for nothing. Even then it is difficult to leave the country where you were raised, where you have spent all your life. It is very hard, but we have to go forward.”

A family separated by immigration policy embraced each other in a hug during a reunification event at Los Angeles City Hall on Monday. Members of 40 families were granted temporary humanitarian visas to visit loved ones they've not seen for years, or even decades, according to a statement from L.A. City Councilman Gill Cedillo, who helped host the event. More details at the link in our bio. #ktla#reunification#immigration
