Senators Request Political Asylum for Three Latin American Countries Motion Law Immigration

Several Senators ask the Trump administration to grant asylum to immigrants from three nations
On September 14, 2020, four US senators signed an official letter exposing how the political asylum policies implemented by the Trump administration could put dozens of immigrants from countries experiencing quite alarming internal conflicts at imminent risk.
The letter involves:
  • Secretary of State of the Department of State (DOS), Michael Pompeo.
  • Under Secretary for Strategy, Policy and Plans of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Chad Wolf.
The senators argue that changes and measures implemented by the current administration of the US, led by President Donald Trump, are risking the lives of innocent immigrants who arrive in the country fleeing the danger, persecution and threat of their countries.
They yearn to request political asylum, so that they can protect their lives. However, current strict policies have allowed these individuals to be expelled from the US almost immediately upon arrival, sending them back to precarious environments that threaten their integrity.
Senators raise their voices primarily for immigrants coming from:
  • Cuba.
  • Nicaragua.
  • Venezuela.
They argue that, on many occasions, they do not go back to their countries, but rather must go to Mexico, which is another vulnerable environment for immigrants, under the Migrant Protection Protocol (MPP).
In fact, the senators declare: “The Trump administration is routinely forcing Venezuelans, Cubans, Nicaraguans, and other seeking asylum back to Mexico’s most violent cities (…) We fail to see how denying protection and inflicting further suffering on Venezuelans, Cubans, and Nicaraguans serves U.S foreign policy and humanitarian interests.”

The MPP Policy – Brief Explanation

In January 2019, the US government signed the MPP agreement with the Mexican government.
This immigration policy, also known as “Remain in Mexico”, states that asylum seekers no longer have the opportunity to reside in the US while waiting for the response to their immigration applications, but must remain in Mexico until their applications are resolved.
It is imperative to understand that immigrants apply for political asylum mainly because they are trying to flee from danger, which is why in most cases they arrive in the country without personal belongings.
Currently, they live in temporary shelters on the borders of Mexico or in foundations sponsored by activist organizations, neighboring communities or religious groups, who help them survive through donations, food and shelters.
They are going through adverse circumstances because these temporary shelters are overcrowded, which increases the risk of a massive outbreak of Coronavirus. Adding to that, asylum hearings are substantially behind schedule due to the health crisis, lengthening waiting times for them and aggravating the situation.

2020.09.20 12:03 MagnanimousBacon Rant Marathon Challenge, Read to the End! Is it possible to get through my barrage of words spit out over a matter of three hours? With my terrible and impuslive writing and paragraph sized tangents ...Likely not!

I live with my sister in a studio and I take care of my niece. I am 19 years old and we pretty much depend on each other a lot. I can get another roommate, but she cannot afford a room by herself, she does not have legal documents, she cannot have access to WIC, Welfare, etc. without it screwing her over somehow. She is a single mother, and can only work during the kid's school hours so the girl is never left alone as she is only 6 years old.
I have to take care of the kid for about 8 hours a day. I spend a lot of money on buying and making her food, I have to take care of her during her virtual school hours, play with her, wake her up, etc. I have to care a lot about this kid. I love her to pieces, I really do, though lately, I've been kind of distant to her. In my perspective, my niece is very rude and spoiled. I am told rude things by her everyday, I get told that I'm lazy, that she hates me, once that I was a piece of trash and this week that I ruined her life. These things make me feel distant to her, I wish I could communicate, "hey, I want to play and have fun, but its hard to do so when you're being mean and rude to me, and I have to discipline you for it, so as not to encourage the behavior." and I've tried, but it just flies over her head. I can ask her to repeat a section of it, and she'll forget it.
I can take the rude mannerisms, I don't care what she says, its the fact that she says it. It's the fact that she does it and doesn't get disciplined by her mother in a persistent matter that bothers me. So, what do I do? I sit the kid down, and I talk to her about it, why it's wrong to do so. I send her on time-out. I deny her fun things like playtime with me or pizza as today's lunch. Never hit her, never been fucked up to her.
She cries a lot on her own when I am stern with her though, and I get it, its a six year old kid, they cry easily. Lately, my sister was concerned that the kid cries alot when I have to take care of her during virtual school days. I want to preface this with the fact that I believe that my niece is falling behind in school very badly. She is in first grade and doesn't know really anything about reading or math very well. She can't read words like cat yet, and doesn't know many things like the noises that e makes when its in a word like "Leaf" that the "ea" the a, makes the e into an "Eee" noise. I've witnessed her classes last year and a lot of kids were able to do so except her. Now, I get it, it's natural that some kids fall behind in school, she might be learning slowly or differently, and I dearly hope that at the end of this year, she doesn't progress, because it seems like she's missing the foundations of what they are learning right now. I don't let my niece have too easy, I set decent standards, I ask her to participate when she doesn't know what a word means, I ask her what she's learned after classes and she just looks at me and says nothing. When this happens, I don't let her fool around during class, I take her phone away until class is over so she isn't distracted and give it back during lunch and break, or sometimes she will give up on something the teacher wants the students to do and she says she can't do it and won't let me work with her, and while I try to get her to see/or do what the teacher is explaining/showing, she is wayyy too far behind to really get it, (in my perspective, the kid might need to return to kindergarten or get special tutoring), the giving up attitude turns into a crying tantrum when I ask her to focus and she refuses. I don't really take it up to the kid at that point, I take it up to her mother, and she says that she will do something about it, but there is zero progress being made.
Here's what happened when I got back home today, there was a party for a 10 year old girl's birthday going on and my sister and brother and law are having a verbal arguing both somewhat tipsy.
(Let me say that I guiltily tend to take my brother-in-laws side of things often, not all the time, but I understand his perspective very well and I try to convey those ideas with my sister when they clash during arguments, we live in a studio so, its pretty hard to walk away from these type of things, especially when they both want me to pick a side, and I find that I can understand my brother in law very easily, I know that he does things wrong, I might not agree with it, but I still try to bridge that communication gap their relationship has by joining in the conversation.)
The argument was over something pretty serious, My brother-in-law saw a kid hitting our niece with a balloon and he pulled the balloon out of the kids hand, and gave him an intimidating look. My sister was scared and rightfully so because she said if things had gotten out of hand, there would have been consequences, like her kid possibly being taken away because her boyfriend appears abusive to kids.
I guess that is my Brother in Law's greatest defect, he is impulsive and physically somewhat aggressive, he's never hit anyone, but he always shows that he is willing to make you stop whatever's bothering him. Kinda like how a dog bares his teeth before attacking, the guy always holds back though, he will direct it anyone, even when he's in the wrong, to police, friends, etc. it does make my sister and I unsteady.
One of the big issues my brother in law and I have is the fact that my sister won't let us work together to be able to discipline the child. By discipline the child, I don't mean hitting or being fucked up to her. When I talked to her about discipline, I told her that it was hard for both of us to bond to my niece when she's very rude and demanding. Both of us are huge on respect, and it takes us out of the enjoyment zone when these things happen which is often. Me and him try to work together to hopefully help her become a more respectful child, but her mother won't participate. When she says something mean to me, its annoying, and her mother won't say anything about it, when she starts fake crying for our attention or when we are talking or having fun, she doesn't tell the kid that its wrong ever. My Brother-In-Law and I do reprimand her, but not my sister. But I don't think I have to be a parent to be able to see fake or excessive crying and whining and to be able to see that it's wrong behavior. My sister, she is very loving and affectionate to her kid, she spoils the shit out of her, she is a great caring supportive person but also never properly disciplines her. She goes from very nice, ignoring and belittling issues, to losing her patience and telling the kid she's going to sleep outside or that she's going to smack her on the mouth. My sister mentioned that my Brother in Law wasn't bonding well to her child, that he wasn't very nice or affectionate to her, and I quickly explained that it was a matter of respect and manners.
I literally told her that the best way to fix this would be to work together on reinforcing manners and respect with the child. My sister goes off on our mother's abusive parenting, her fucked up past, that this is somehow a gateway to hitting and threatening, that and how she believes that the child deserves only happiness. I disagree and tell her that it won't obstruct with the child's happiness at all, there will be that it's for her good in the future, people do not work well with people who are rude, society rejects outcasts, and rewards good work ethic, motivation, discipline, respect and initiative. Most kids won't reflect this behavior until much further on, but not starting now won't help.
All because I said, I want all three of us to work together and to have a fair input on your child, I want you to be the foundation for her, to help us correct what we think is wrong, I'm not suggesting any punishment, nor something to be done right now. I would like us to be able to have input on her, so that when she goes out of line, we can all agree and work together to fix that. That way none of us are the bad guy, we all have wierd ways of what we think parenting should be, however we can fix the flaws on our perspective if the three of us work together and collaborate, creating a well rounded child.
It takes a village to raise a child, we cannot turn a blind eye to the kid's bad behavior. But thats what my sister demanded a whole month of, she does not want to work together at all. She said that we weren't her biological parents, we can't know whats wrong, we shouldn't have any input at all.
It feels abusive when you are nice to the kid and she calls you fat, ugly or gross out of no where, and you can't say that its wrong. Our two choices are to either reprimand her, tell her that its wrong and not nice at all, or to ignore it, leave it to my sister that will arrive hours later and to feel this odd grudge against the kid, feeling disrespected and

This left me bawling in tears man, and I don't cry easily at all, but its extremely frustrating. I feel like I'm being told to stop caring for my niece, to just let her down a path that she will pay for in the future. Though my mother was extremely abusive and demanding, I learned good work ethic, discipline and maturity, I'm literally arguing with 30 year olds trying to work together for a better future for my 6 year old niece, I never said I wanted it to be skewed to our perspective, I merely wanted us to be able to work together, so that her behavior is no longer a burden to their relationship (It's been putting quite the strain of the relationship, my brother in law confided in me) and for me, I really just want to see a happy kid with good values, and discipline. I know I sound like a discipline freak, but today's world is demanding of that, especially if you want to get into college, a trade, a freelance, etc., you need to apply yourself heavily when you are young. It feels and sounds unfair, but those who do not have such values applied to them when they are young go into dark places fast, I've seen friends of mine go into hard drugs, from all walks of life,

On one hand, I'm being told that I care too much about my niece, which feels like a slap to the face, yes, go be responsible for her, but let her get out of hand, don't let her know right from wrong, I'll deal with it when I get home, doesn't matter if its hours later, it's not your kid its mine. I've spent more than 240 days together with that kid, of course I feel fucking attachment, now I'm being told not to
I've tried talking to my sister about it so many times, and it always reaches the conclusion above.

And right now? I'm saying fuck this. Really. I'm 19 years old. I could rent out a room right now, work a job, get enough for rent and utilities, go to community college for free, continue my future, do what literally everyone else my age is doing. Instead, im here taking shit from my sister for caring too much? Taking care of her kid is literally all I do, I don't get paid jack shit for it, fuck I spend a good portion of my check on food and toys for her and I don't feel happy at all watching my niece fail at multiple things because nobody is there to help the kid see whats right and wrong. My sister wants to spoil her, and love her, but she's being too permissive and wants us to back off. I fucking hate it, I get that its her kid but I can definetly see the kid's behavior not improving and it breaking up my sister and brother in law.
It feels like im holding the entire world on my fucking back while not moving forward. I WANT TO FUCKING STUDY, I WANT TO FUCKING LIVE MY LIFE DAMMIT, I want to be able to work two jobs to be able to save enough to buy a goddamn motorcycle and travel across the United Fucking States and back. I want to live my life too!
Instead, im here chained up to family. I can't leave my sister or she can't take care of her niece, the dad will have to get custody, my brother in law probably wont be able to help her out until he's done with his military contract. I feel like that will guarantee the end of their relationship and her chance at being financially stable and at finally become legal is completely screwed. She would probably wind up going back to mexico since her job pays her jack shit and here I am crying feeling like a fucking never-ending cog in a machine, "caring too much", because I don't want anyone's future to fall apart. I didn't ask for much yet here I am 2 am at night, pissed off and flowing frustrated tears as I feel like I watch myself between two different paths. My sister is my only family that I have, if I abandon her, I'll feel like shit for a while, and if I stick with it, what I hope is that the relationship between her and my brother in law succeeds and that we all somehow form a big happy family. I chose to be the stupid fucking glue, right now, and all this shit tears me apart as I realize how my youth is being spent on a failing fucking relationship and a spoiled kid whose mom won't let me help. I care deeply for my sister, brother in law, and niece. About an hour ago they almost broke up, this happens at least once or twice a month, I feel like its inevitable, my sister never tries to see her self as the bad guy, no reflection. My brother in law has issues of his own like his impulsiveness, lack of affection with my niece and jealousy.
I'm going to try to direct my time to working out so at least one facet of me is improving, and perhaps look into furthering my online education. Life sucks right now, a lot. I get that feeling that I had a couple years ago with my mom, that feeling of desiring suicide, not because of depression necessarily, but because its a free escape, from what all others say about you, from consequences from all earthly matters. I'm not suicidal, but I have that similar feeling in the sense of running away, saying fuck all this shit. I realize I wrote an entire fucking bible's worth of pages right now, I feel like there's no one who cares about how I feel. I have no friends since I moved into a new city for my sister and niece. Coronavirus means virtual classes for my niece, means I lost my other job and have half as much money. I cannot socialize like I want to, I cannot even talk to girls that like me, because I feel like the shit going on behind the fucking scenes is such a great burden that I would just not have enough money to have fun or not enough time, and this would fuck up the relationship. So much fucking emotional shit going on. I invest so much time into videogames to flee from reality now, I used to stop playing them. I would only do around like 10 hours a week. Now I do like maybe 50 or 60 hours maybe more a week. I fell into a porn addiction rut that I'm using Nofap to get out of, (its my first full day of nofap) and god knows why I chose to involve myself in too deep with my sister's life, I just got dragged into it. Part of me also wants to stop giving a fuck about everything, about caring about my niece's future like she says I should (She says she's got this, when you can see it clearly failing), about caring about her relationship, about caring about everything not related to me. I'm going to save hopefully around 400-500 dollars this month just in case god knows what happens. I feel like shit though. I really do, all the people I know have cars, have a social life, money, are spending time at college, are having fun, and here I am, a poor kid with a skateboard trying to tie other people's shit together.

All I really have is my fucking self. I got no one that has my back. I have my sister's back but she doesn't have mine, she has to take care of her kid first I get that. I need a fucking hug, like really fucking badly and I hate hugs, but I just want the physical conformation that "hey its going to be ok" from literally anyone that could see where I'm coming from
. I don't even know what I want to fucking want to do for college, my future, any of that, I need to get my life back together myself while holding my family up and it really really fucking sucks.
I feel like an island right now, no one asks how i'm feeling, literally no one has genuinely asked me this all my life. I ask this all the time to co-workers, to lay it all on me and shit and I mean that shit too. I really wish I could lean one someone right now. I'm too much of a happy cheery "man" to ask for help though,

My real hope. the one thing that really keeps me going, is that in a couple of months, hopefully not years, I'll read this. Ill remember my struggles, the conflict going on, I'll see how I made a good impact on them, how they've been positively resolved, I'll see how I've become a better and stronger person. I will bear the fruits of my labor, and I will hopefully be happy.

Tldr; I just realized how much I can complain and rant on the internet when im emotional, no one will likely read to the end, just this part, its cool, I don't blame you, this was more or less for self-reflection.

2020.09.14 08:50 ProudDisaster9 Burying people alive in construction sites, ¿an urban legend?

Hello community, I'm not sure if this goes here, if not please let me know, also english isn't my first idiom, so bear with me.
I'm from Mexico, and down here we have some wild stories about strangeness happenings and paranormal activity, folklore and beliefs, and this is one of many:
Let me build a context for you... Now, for the longest time (I'm 43) I've listened to rumors about big construction companies burying people alive, the reason behind this is to prevent the building won't collapse and remain strong, now, this seems to be a urban legend for many, but not for the ones who belong to secret societies, shamans, or priests among others who believe in the power of blood and sacrifices
The first time I've heard about this it was when my folks were talking about a wave of missing people when the Metlac bridge in Veracruz was under construction, and how these two things are linked
The story about this linkage, (the only one I know) is that when a bridge is about to begin, the architect receives a visit from an elegant man, with refined manners who claims the ownership of the land, nobody at that point is able to think clearly and they just follow, they even take fine cigars from him while talking
So the deal comes to the table, he will allow whatever they're building, and even take care of it in return of maybe 50 or 100 people's lifes, only they know, but they are several
Otherwise he will sabotage the site and still get his share, so the architect accept the deal and this gentleman give him instructions how to do it, but mostly the people is buried alive inside the foundations and the rest will die in accidents once is finished.
So the gentleman leaves the office, and the architect stand astonished smoking a small piece of tree branch, what he thought it was a cuban cigar.
Now... Let me add this: I know that the Papantla flyers bury a live hen under the pole they fly with, so they won't fall to their death
Now the story: a few days ago a met a construction worker and we started to talk about meaningless stuff until he told me his story about his job
He worked in the Mayan riviera in playa del Carmen in a huge construction site, until last week, they building a new set of 40 storey hotels close to Xcalococos beach, a very difficult access to the site
He said he quitted because all the odd things: co workers gone missing after concrete pouring day, leaving their equipment in their lockers, when he asked about it, the foreman answer is that they quitted and went back to their home towns, due to the covid-19 many workers did it.
So this guy got very suspicious about it, he knew no worker leave their work boots behind and he was very cautious ever since
He claims workers joke about when foreman's start asking questions about workers info previous disappearing
But on Thursday he heard from coworkers some foreman was asking personal details about him and then he was asked to work on sunday, pouring day, so he just worked till Saturday, pay day.
Now my theory: what if all the missing people we have heard of, end up buried in those foundations, people that vanishes and never are found
¿Have you ever hear similar stories in the place you live, or is something that just happens in some places?
Please I need to know if this is just an Urban legend of if really happens in real life.

2020.09.14 01:52 MotionLawImmigration The Current Uncertainty of Asylum Seekers

The Current Uncertainty of Asylum Seekers

Did the government forget about asylum seekers?
Immigrants who yearn to apply for political asylum in the US are currently going through quite difficult circumstances. It is natural that the Trump administration is focusing its attention on mitigating the impact of the global Coronavirus pandemic and restoring economic balance despite the current unemployment rate.
However, there are thousands of immigrants residing in temporary shelters in Mexico while waiting for the opportunity to apply for political asylum and, in the opinion of dozens of activists, the current administration of the US cannot forget about them.
To better understand the current situation of asylum seekers, we need to know about immigration policies implemented by the Trump administration in recent years.
In early 2019, the governments of the US and Mexico signed an agreement named the Migrant Protection Protocol (MPP), commonly known as “Remain in Mexico”.
This policy basically states that asylum seekers can no longer reside in the US while awaiting the response to their immigration cases. Instead, they must remain in Mexico until their cases are resolved.
It is also important to mention some of the reasons why immigrants request political asylum.

They are usually trying to flee from:

  • Persecution either because of their race, religion, political ideals, sexual orientation, inter alia.
  • Domestic violence.
  • Kidnapping or confrontation with gangs.
  • Abuse, both physical and psychological.
Due to the conditions in which they live, it is evident that they flee in fear and seek international protection through programs such as political asylum or refuge. They normally do not have personal possessions or financial solvency.
That is why they currently live in temporary shelters or foundations, and survive thanks to the donations of immigrant rights advocates, neighboring communities, religious organizations and groups of activists, who constantly watch over their well-being.

Hearings have already resumed

After the political asylum hearings were suspended by the Trump administration during the massive Coronavirus outbreak, they have already resumed and asylum officers are expected to speed up processes in order to help thousands of people who are currently under the MPP policy.
In fact, in one of our most recent articles, we talk about the hiring of 100 immigration judges who began their duties in Texas in late August, 2020. Their support may help to speed up political asylum processes.
However, despite this news, asylum seekers still feel hopeless knowing that they must reside in these temporary shelters, on many occasions for more than a year.

Not sure which immigration process suits your needs?

It is well known that the immigration law of the US is quite broad and robust, as well as the number of processes available to foreigners.
That is why we recommend for you to follow the advice of experts and avoid precarious situations during your immigration journey.

2020.09.06 20:00 Amethystx3 WHAT IS THE BLACK LIVES MATTER MOVEMENT?


WHAT IS THE BLACK LIVES MATTER MOVEMENT? WHY DOES THIS MOVEMENT MATTER?

Racism is present in everyday life for black people and is not only reflected in insults and physical violence, but it is present on a personal and state level as well. This ranges from racial profiling, legislation, street names, and discrimination within school education, to the media, to access to employment and housing markets. In addition to all of these issues, current events from all over the world are constantly showing us that protest is necessary.
In the "Black Lives Matter" demonstrations, people are seeking to set an example against racism. But where does the movement actually originate from?
The Black Lives Matter movement has come together in the United States to raise awareness of racism and violence against African Americans and people of color.
Quick Facts about the Black Lives Matter movement:
What is the Black Lives Matter movement? Why is it considered as one of the most political Black Lives Matter is a social movement that originated in 2013 and is directed against racial violence by the police in the United States. This movement got a lot of attention with the hashtag # BlackLivesMatter. After the death of the African-American teenager Trayvon Martin and the acquittal of George Zimmerman, people were shocked and greatly disturbed what they saw as blatant injustice; in protest, there were riots and demonstrations across the country.
The BLM movement is also associated with the phrase "I can't breathe ". This phrase became the movement’s main motto after the death of George Floyd, an African-American man who was killed in a recorded police operation. The entire country and the world watched the footage of George Floyd’s last minutes, with him repeatedly saying, “I can’t breathe” and were shocked at the use of unnecessary physical violence against an individual of color.

WHAT IS "BLACK LIVES MATTER"?

"Black Lives Matter" is the name of a movement that has formed in the African-American community in response to violence against blacks. The final decision for the emergence was above all the acquittal of the neighborhood guard George Zimmerman, who shot the unarmed African-American student Trayvon Martin in 2012. The movement works decentrally and does not follow a clear, formal hierarchy. Accordingly, there is no leader.

IT STARTED WITH A HASHTAG.

"I could not imagine that in 2013 a white person could shoot a young man as they passed by and would not be held accountable," explains Patrisse Khan-Cullors, one of the founders of the Black Lives Matter movement in a letter on her website. Khan-Cullors posted the spontaneous exclamation "Black Lives Matter" of her co-founder Alicia Garza and added a hashtag. Together with the third founder, Opal Tometi, they set up an online community under the motto "Black Lives Matter" and organized protests.
The slogan became more popular a year later when the young African American Michael Brown was shot and killed in Ferguson by a police officer under unsettled circumstances. Ferguson was also unarmed, and the policeman was not convicted. In addition to impunity, the partisan approach of the judicial authorities caused anger and despair, especially among the black population. Hundreds of people demonstrated in Ferguson against racist police violence.

ALL BLACK LIVES MATTER

In addition to street protests, the Black Lives Matter movement also consciously uses social media to network and bring its issues onto the political agenda. This is how they managed to raise public awareness of racism. The Black Lives Matter Foundation, Inc, which emerged from the movement, is now represented in the USA, England, and Canada. It is committed to exterminating "white supremacy" and strengthening local black communities.
Black Lives Matter not only stands for the fight against police violence against blacks but it also draws the supporters' attention to structural racism. Structural racism not only emanates from the authorities but is also prevalent in all areas of life for all black people, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, disability, religion, nationality, or financial status. The activists criticize the fact that previous protests have mainly focused on heterosexual men.

BLACK LIVES MATTER INHERITED THE CIVIL RIGHTS MOVEMENT OF THE 1960S

The Black Lives Matter movement can be traced back to the American civil rights movement in the 1960s. At that time, Martin Luther King fought against discrimination in the form of racial segregation and campaigned for equal rights for the black population. At least on paper, he was successful: discrimination based on race, skin color, religion, gender, or nationality was prohibited by law through his efforts.

"WE'LL KEEP FIGHTING LIKE CRAZY."

But in reality, racism still lives on. In the last few years of the movement, this has not changed, as Black Lives Matter founder Patrisse Khan-Cullors explains in her letter: "We were forced to go to prison, we were monitored, they were on us, we were called terrorists, wrongly classified by the FBI and some of us have lost our lives.
The fight will go on; she is certain. "We fought for our freedom like crazy, and we will continue to fight like crazy."

BLACK LIVES MATTER: FOUNDATION AND PHILOSOPHY

The movement with the hashtag # BlackLivesMatter was co-founded by three activists from the black community in summer 2013: Alicia Garza, Patrisse Cullors, and Opal Tometi acted after George Zimmerman's acquittal for the killing of Trayvon Martin. Black Lives Matter's philosophy is against racism, police violence, and discrimination against African Americans in the United States.
After George Floyd's death in 2020, the Black Lives Matter movement became louder and bigger than ever. Millions of people have demonstrated in the United States. Several thousand also took to the streets in different countries to show their solidarity with the activists. The Website Black Lives Matter provides information about protest marches in the United States.
From New York, Amsterdam, Berlin, London, to Mexico City, the list of cities in which protests over the violent death of African American George Floyd have taken place continues to grow. People all over the globe take to the roads to set an example against racism and police violence.
The phrase "Black Lives Matter" can always be read on their posters. There are different slogans, representative images, and figures that have risen in prominence to represent the movement, but at the core of every protest is that famous slogan: Black Lives Matter.

BLACK LIVES MATTER - PROTESTS AND DEMONSTRATIONS

More and more sympathizers of the Black Lives Matter movement demonstrated against the deaths of several African Americans through police actions. The demonstrations kept calling for slogans that reflect what the victims had to endure. Slogans such as: "Hands up don't shoot” refer to Michael Brown's death in Ferguson in 2014. A policeman killed the 18-year-old with 12 shots. Or "I can't breathe" refers to the death of George Floyd but is also reminiscent of the African American Eric Garner, who passed away in New York in 2014 after a policeman strangled him after being arrested.

OBAMA AND BLACK LIVES MATTER

In the beginning of the movement’s activism, former United States President Obama met with older generation civil rights activists and Black Lives Matter activists at the White House. Obama praised the group and said he was convinced that the movement could help America grow.
But only two months later, Obama criticized the movement sharply. The activists had protested loudly at election events. “Shouting alone is no use, you also have to be willing to sit down at the table with political opponents”, Obama said.

BLACK LIVES MATTER ON THE INTERNET AND SOCIAL MEDIA

Black Lives Matter uses the Internet, especially social media, to make public where possible social grievances can be seen. In this way, people were directly faced with the consequences of their racist actions. With the hashtag #BlackLivesMatter, which was invented in July 2013, activists on Instagram reached a lot of people and found a platform to directly involve a larger audience in their movement. Social media attention is high when it comes to supporting something important. The activists have found a large forum for exchange. Their approach is to deal directly with the problem at hand through protests. To do this, they hold rallies and demonstrations.
Superstars like Beyoncé and Rihanna also commented on Instagram on the death of George Floyd. "We cannot normalize this pain," says Beyoncé Knowles-Carter in a video message.
And singer Rihanna writes: "In the past few days, the level of devastation, anger, and sadness I have felt has been overwhelming, to say the least! Watching my people being murdered and lynched day after day hit my heart hard!"

BLACK LIVES MATTER - FIRST SUCCESSES AFTER STREET PROTESTS AND SOCIAL MEDIA

#BlackLivesMatter gained national attention in the United States after two African Americans, Michael Brown and Eric Garner, were killed by police officers. The hashtag #BlackLivesMatter gave people cohesion when they went to the streets to march and shout for equality for weeks after this and other deaths.
The hashtag migrated from just being a hashtag on social networks to being the main phrase of the demonstrators' posters. What began as an outcry turned into an organized movement with large-scale protests. The first successes were quick. Soon, the entire country was seriously debating about police violence and racism. In 2014, the hashtag #BlackLivesMatter was named Word of the Year by the American Dialect Society. The network of the movement continued to spread across the country, and their fight against racism had tangible consequences: police chiefs were fired, the President of Missouri University had to resign, and the presidential candidates were grilled on their support for Black Lives Matter.
In addition to major street protests, the Black Lives Matter movement members also make use of social media to draw attention to racism and violence against people of color worldwide. After the video of George Floyd's death in May 2020 went viral on the Internet, people worldwide posted black tiles on their social media profiles and showed solidarity with the victims of police violence as part of "Black-Out Tuesday."
Political slogans such as "I can't breathe" (referring to the deaths of George Floyd and Eric Garner) or "No justice, no peace" also became popularly distributed by the movement in the form of hashtags on the Internet in order to raise awareness of the problem and to call for demonstrations. Body gestures such as kneeling, refusing to salute the flag and kneeling instead, raising the fist (like the one depicted of the raised black fist) are also symbolic of the movement.

ARE BLACKS MORE LIKELY TO BE VICTIMS OF POLICE VIOLENCE IN THE UNITED STATES?

Since 2015, the Washington Post has documented every killing by a police officer in the United States. According to those statistics, African Americans are shot by the police disproportionately: The report says that while African Americans made up less than 13 percent of the US population, the police killed African Americans twice as often as they killed white Americans. Hispanic Americans were also killed by the police more often than white citizens.

WHITE SUPPORT FOR A BLACK MOVEMENT

The Black Lives Matter movement is currently louder and bigger than ever. Many show solidarity with the protests. The movement researcher Nicole Hirschfelder says: Whites can only help the movement if they deal with their own racism.
Since George Floyd's death, many people in various cities in the United States have taken to the roads against racism and police violence.

THE REPUTATION OF THE "BLACK LIVES MATTER" MOVEMENT

Suddenly the slogan is everywhere: "Black Lives Matter" signs hang in house entrances from San Francisco to Boston. Starbucks hands out printed T-shirts to his baristas. Companies like Nike, Netflix, and Citigroup express solidarity with the movement. Washington (DC) recently renamed an area opposite the White House to "Black Lives Matter Plaza."
The "BLM" movement has undergone a change in image in the past few weeks. Within two weeks, public support for "BLM" has increased as much as in the two years before, reports the Civiqs survey institute. Two-thirds of the Americans now support the movement. How can you explain the sudden approval of a group that a majority rejected two years ago?

DECENTRALIZED ORGANIZATION

Black Lives Matter is a loose movement with countless informal and 13 official branches in America. The latter is committed to general guidelines, such as the global fight against black oppression and the inclusion of minorities. But every branch is fighting for change within its community and has its own priorities. The non-profit organization of the same name, registered since 2016, mainly deals with fundraising and helps with organizational questions.
This decentralized organization was important to the three founders of "Black Lives Matter." The three came together by chance: in summer 2013, when a Florida court cleared white neighborhood guard George Zimmerman, who had shot black teen Trayvon Martin the previous year, that the 32-year-old African American Alicia Garza from Oakland turned to Facebook to express her frustration over the ruling She wrote on Facebook: «I am always amazed at how little the lives of black people are important. Black people, I love you, our lives are important. » A friend commented on "#BlackLivesMatter," and a third suggested spreading the catchphrase on social networks. The movement was born. Although it wasn't until the following year that the three really caused a sensation when, after Michael Brown died in Ferguson, Missouri,
Unlike black civil rights movements in the 20th century, the founders did not want to appoint a single leader like Martin Luther King junior, Jesse Jackson, or Malcolm X. They were based on the organizational structure of the Occupy movement: local branches should set up their own networks with politicians and activists. Seven years later, this very structure made it possible for protests against the murder of George Floyd to spring up in more than 2,000 American cities within a very short space of time, and for the activists to use the momentum to make concrete reform proposals in the respective communities.

CRITICISM OF THE PROTEST METHODS

But after the first protests in Ferguson in 2014, criticism of the movement quickly arose. According to the Ministry of Justice, there was a "Ferguson effect" in police work, the murder rates in 56 major cities had increased because the police officers had withdrawn. A nationwide debate about whether only the lives of black people are important triggered counter-movements such as the right-wing nationalist "White Lives Matter."
Other black civil rights activists have criticized Black Lives Matter's sometimes radical methods of protest, in which protesters block bridges and highways or willfully damage property.
In the following years, however, hair-raising cases of police violence against unarmed blacks caused public opinion to slowly develop greater sympathy for the movement. However, Black Lives Matter no longer attracted as much attention as in Ferguson, and its offshoots also began to argue among themselves. Just a few days before the murder of George Floyd, experts described the movement on the Economist as increasingly irrelevant.
But that changed suddenly at the end of May. For weeks, hair-raising killings of blacks had made headlines, be it by police officers or vigilantes. Glued to the couch during the Coronavirus crisis, millions of Americans read about these cases and saw on their smartphones the videos of the murders of Ahmaud Arbery and George Floyd, and then footage of police officers pounding peaceful demonstrators. Without the Coronavirus cases, these cases would probably have evaporated in the hectic pace of everyday life, activists from "Black Lives Matter" later said in interviews. But as if under a magnifying glass, the grievances in race relations were now apparent. Instead of sitting on the couch, many Americans joined local protests.
"The global Black Lives Matter movement has reached historic proportions," says Tyler Parry, a professor of African American history at the University of Nevada in Las Vegas. It shows what a civil rights movement looks like in times of social networks. The important question now is whether it can also bring about sustainable change, just as previous movements would have cemented it with the Civil Rights Act.

WHY YOU SHOULDN'T ANSWER "BLACK LIVES MATTER" WITH "ALL LIVES MATTER."

WHY NOT "ALL LIVES MATTER"?

Especially from the right camp comes the accusation that instead of Black Lives Matter, it should actually be called "All Lives Matter." The activists counter that the lives of black people in a world in which white people are primarily in power are seen as life without value.
The slogan "Black Lives Matter" has often been criticized in the past and labeled as selfish "All Lives Matter" is the more appropriate term for the movement. However, the reason for this criticism is not the accused selfishness, but rather the misinterpretation of the motto. "BLM" does not mean that just black lives are important or even more important than white lives.
The motion would rather testify that black life also is important to black life also count and that black life also is valuable, just as white life. "Black Lives Matter" tries to put black and white people on one level. The slogan "All Lives Matter" would make the aspect of systematic racism and discrimination secondary, since not all people experience exclusion and disadvantage because of their skin color.

MAYBE WELL-MEANT, BUT ACTUALLY PROBLEMATIC

The death of George Floyd, a black American who was so brutally attacked in a police operation that he died shortly afterward, caused a wave of outrage across the world. Since then, there have been protests or actions on social media worldwide that express grief and anger at the deed and show solidarity with black people and against all forms of racism.
The hashtag #BlackLivesMatter (whether on the web or on posters) is one of the fighting spells used to point out injustice. But with this striking slogan, many feel called to insist on an #AllLivesMatter ("All lives are important"). Could you actually sign that way? Yes and no... Because whoever insists on this distinction has not fully understood the underlying problem.

REASON 1- IT'S NOT CALLED "ONLY BLACK LIVES MATTER."

The first assumption, which is probably the basis of many people who would rather look at an "All Lives Matter" instead of the saying "Black Lives Matter," is that when one uses the statement “Black Lives Matter” to speak about the rights of blacks, that person is saying that the lives of black people are worth more than those of other races.
A law professor explained this to concerned students in a letter published on Imgur. They asked him to stop wearing his "Black Lives Matter" t-shirt because it should actually be called "All Lives Matter." According to the professor, the students were viewing it as if there is an "ONLY" before the saying "Black Lives Matter," meaning "ONLY the lives of blacks count." If something counts, it does not imply that nothing else counts, "he writes.
"Black Lives Matter" fights for the equality and equal treatment of all black people against police arbitrariness and racism in the USA, Canada, and Great Britain. There are now branches of the English movement in some European cities, such as Berlin and Hanover. The organizations also draw attention to social and political grievances, which particularly black people feel through systematic racism, exclusion, and disadvantage.

REASON 2: WE SHOULD ADDRESS THE MORE OBVIOUS PROBLEM

So it should be clear to everyone that the claim "Black Lives Matter" is by no means to be equated with the requirement that the lives of blacks (or any minority) are more important than others. This movement is precisely about a specific problem: namely, that blacks are disadvantaged due to their skin color. Be it with extreme examples such as police violence, or in everyday life. This is called structural racism. And that is exactly the problem that the "Black Lives Matter" movement wants to draw attention to -- that it still makes a difference when you are born with black skin.
If you now loudly demand that it should be called "All Lives Matter," you are denying that there is a problem that is urgent and that we should all address together.
There are many comparisons on Twitter to help explain this concept. Insisting on “All Lives Matter” in place of "Black Lives Matter" is equivalent to the following:
A Reddit user has another good example: If a portion of food is opened at the family table except for yourself, you would say, "I should get my share." It does not help if the distributor now says, "EVERYONE should get their part" - because the others already have theirs, and you just wanted to draw attention to the problem that one has not yet received anything.

REASON 3: #ALLLIVESMATTER OFTEN COMES FROM THE POLITICAL RIGHT

Another reason people insist on "All Lives Matter" is that this demand is commonly supported by the politically right-wing camp. However, many people simply want to express that everyone should be treated equally and want to emphasize that they do not want to emphasize people because of their skin color. But even if the wish behind it is well-meaning, the argument has become so interwoven with views that already include racist tendencies that the actual intention behind the reformulation can hardly be recognized.

REASON 4: #ALLLIVESMATTER REFERS TO OTHER OPPRESSED MINORITIES

For some people, "All Lives Matter" stands for all BPoPC (Black People and People of Color) who have to deal with racism and structural disadvantage. Unfortunately, all migrant groups are thrown into one category with this hashtag, which can be problematic. For example, black people and non-white people do not experience the same racism. Thus, the term "All Lives Matter" does not contribute to solving a problem. It is not clear what different experiences minorities have, which means that individual grievances cannot be dealt with in a targeted manner.
Debates always creep in from people who want to normalize the events that have happened. Again and again, you read comments like, "And what about the people who have to go hungry? They are also doing badly". The fact that both subjects are two completely different topics is usually ignored. The goal is to manipulate the opponent with questions like "What about ...?" And to distract them from the actual problem. This is not helpful constructive criticism, but a relativization. This phenomenon is also called "whataboutism."

"BLACK LIVES MATTER": WHAT IS "WHITE PRIVILEGE"?

In order to fight for equality for all people, people must first recognize that BPoPC have more challenges due to their skin color than their white fellow human beings. This does not mean that white people don’t have any problems. It should rather be shown that these problems are not related to their own skin color and that this does not make life harder. This social problem is called "White Privilege."

BLACK LIVES MATTER - 7 THINGS WE HAVE TO DO NOW AGAINST RACISM

"I can't breathe": Again, police officers in the United States killed an African American - George Floyd's last-minute pictures went around the world. Floyd's death is the result of deeply rooted racism, which is also common among us.
For nearly nine minutes, cop Derek Chauvin knelt on George Floyd's neck. "I can’t breathe," said the latter, also: "Please don't kill me." But Chauvin kept pushing him to the ground, and Floyd choked.
The recordings leave you stunned; at the same time, Floyd's case was not an isolated incident. In March, 26-year-old Breonna Taylor was shot dead by police in Louisville, and last October, 28-year-old Atatiana Jefferson was killed at home. Police violence against African Americans has become a long-standing, quietly-hidden tradition in the United States.
Those who are not themselves affected by racism will find it difficult to understand how black people are currently dealing with Floyd's death. However, one thing is clear: people all over the world suffer from racism; in the worst case, this can be fatal. This is reason enough for all of us to take action against it. This is how you, as a supporter and ally, can help.

1. CONTACT BLACK FRIENDS AND ACQUAINTANCES.

Do you have black friends, acquaintances, or colleagues? You've probably spent the past few days following the protests in the United States, and seeing even more police violence against blacks. Contact them, ask them how they are doing at the moment and if they want to talk. Show them that they are not alone with their grief and anger. Solidarity from those who are not affected can do good right now.

2. TAKE PART IN PROTEST ACTIONS.

A concrete way to show solidarity: take part in protests against racism. For example, Black Lives Matter demos are held in different regions. If protests are currently too unsafe because of the Coronavirus, you can attend demonstrations after the pandemic ends or take precautionary measures during the protests. Here, the signal you are sending to BPoPC (Black People and People of Color) is important: You don't have to fight racism and injustice alone.

3. RAISE YOUR VOICE AGAINST RACISM

The aunt talks again at a family celebration that all refugees are criminals? Is your grandpa joking about Turks? Does anyone insult a black person on the subway? Don't leave racist statements or insults uncommented. Address the speaker that the statement is racist and unacceptable. Depending on the situation, you can discuss the content of the statement with the person. Those who remain silent in the face of blatant racism help to ensure that racism remains invisible and normalized.

4. FIND OUT

In order to be able to speak out against racism, you first have to recognize it because it does not only express itself in insults and violence. Much of the everyday racism that BPoPC is experiencing is hidden. Therefore: inform yourself. Knowledge about racism also helps to identify your racist thought patterns, and to reduce them.

5. LISTEN TO BPOPC (BLACK PEOPLE AND PEOPLE OF COLOR)

Starting from supposedly "well-intentioned" remarks to racist violence, when those affected tell you about it, listen without relativizing their experiences. Avoid sentences such as "that was definitely not what they meant" or "you are too sensitive." Someone who is BPoPC has had many years of experience with racism and can classify it accordingly. Talking him down is another step towards normalizing racism.

6. SUPPORT ANTI-RACIST WORK

There are numerous associations, clubs, and initiatives that work to fight against racism. They organize demonstrations, provide information material, give workshops, and cooperate with schools, the media, and politics. Their work is extremely important; however, they are mostly dependent on memberships and donations if you want to donate or support.

7. BE AWARE OF YOUR PRIVILEGES.

Be aware of the opportunities that you have due to your skin color, and the opportunities that others do not have because of their skin color. For example, an opportunity to interview, view an apartment and be approved, not being interrogated by the police, and the ability to be left alone by yourself. These are privileges that people enjoy or are deprived of, because of their skin color. In short: you have many privileges that black people and people of color do not have. You have advantages because they have disadvantages. "Acknowledge that it is a privilege that you have (if you know) and use that privilege to break it," says American activist DeRay Mckesson.
Becoming aware of your own privileges is not so easy because we take them for granted.
Whether this is your first encounter with the Black Lives Matter movement, or you have continued to see their work in your neighborhood, the greatest first step we can take is to be informed. Regardless of skin color, political affiliation, or personal opinion about the demonstrations of the BLM movement, what is clear is that we all must participate together in the fight against racism.

2020.09.06 15:20 communist-crapshoot *REALLY, REALLY LONG POST (But Worth It If You Care About Winning)* A Lot Of Idpol Bullshit I've Had To Deal With In Real Life Left Wing Spaces & The Lessons I've Learned From It Or: Why San Diego, California Is A Depressing Place To Be A Marxist.

So before I go into my personal experiences I feel I have to give some background on my city for the people who know nothing about it. Essentially first and foremost San Diego is a military city, the Naval Base & Shipyards, the Marine Corps Recruiting Depot & the Air Force Reserve all employ a very large chunk of the local population & bring in a lot of out of towners from the flyover states either as retirees from the above branches of the armed service or as spouses of active servicemen deployed here or in the Pacific. Besides that we also have the most trafficked U.S. Mexican Border crossing in the whole country at San Ysidro Port & ICE and Border Patrol have a very disturbingly ubiquitous presence around the city. Between the Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force, Border Patrol & ICE we also have a local FBI office with a really fucked up history (hint: it's got to do with COINTELPRO & paying Far Right groups to act as assassins for them) as well as a small Department of Homeland Security office. Suffice it to say the Federal Government's presence here is keenly felt. If that weren't enough we also have one of the largest Sheriff's Departments in the whole country and it is as trigger happy, corrupt & brutal as any of them.
I don't think I'd be exaggerating when I say San Diego is probably the biggest mercenary camp for capitalism in the entire world. This has more or less been the case since the early 1900's (we even managed to dodge the effects of the great depression almost exclusively due to government investment into local military contractors. Because of this we were one of the only American cities whose GDP rose consistently throughout the 1930's). But in spite of that it's only been fairly recently that Federal employment has outstripped employment in the local private sector. You see San Diego used to have huge civilian industries as well particularly Tuna fishing, food processing, cigar rolling & light industrial manufacturing. But in the 1980's the Pacific Tuna fleet disbanded after the Japanese overfished our jointly managed fish stocks & the Mexican government set up a exclusive economic zone off the coast of Baja, California where the few remaining Tuna congregated seasonally. The food processing companies one by one were outsourced overseas mainly to Northern Mexico but also to Canada & Panama for whatever reason. The cigar rollers still exist but they've scaled down their operations as demand for cigars has plummeted. Light industrial manufacturing still exists but it's mostly tied to the military or NASA, mainly shipbuilding or making mechanical parts for jet fighters. I was a cabinet maker's apprentice for two months back in 2015 but the factory where I was employed went bankrupt after a rival company based out of Utah muscled us out. That was not only my first job (& so far the only contractual employment I've ever had) but also the first exposure I ever had to Marxism but more on that later. Today outside the federal, state & city government sectors the biggest employers are Qualcomm (a telecommunications giant ), a handful of moderately sized craft breweries & Rockstar Games San Diego.
So with the collapse of the private sector in San Diego as well as the shifting of the state sector after the end of the Cold War we had starting in the 1980's & continuing to a lesser extent today some of the highest youth unemployment in the entire country. At its height (in my lifetime) in 2017 real youth unemployment for the ages 18-25 was about 18% give or take a decimal. A little bit before my time it was even higher and with it came organized crime on a level you wouldn't believe. During the late 1990's around the time I was born San Diego was the meth capital of the entire world with over 23 labs being discovered by law enforcement during 1997 alone. Meth became less and less popular as the increasingly commonplace effects of addiction scared away new customers & a boom in those craft breweries I mentioned earlier made cheap high quality booze more enticing than crystal and so deaths from blood alcohol poisoning briefly overtook deaths from overdosing. But now cocaine has got a resurgence in profitability recently and everyone is left to guess which of the city's favorite poisons will win the popularity contest. Anyway with drugs come violence & I know personally at least seven people who've been effected by violent crime (3 stab victims, one gunshot murder victim, two rape victims & a victim of unarmed assault).
Anyway I don't want to give you all my entire life's story or the city's dark & unspoken history so to summarize: An imposing Federal presence, extremely high youth unemployment, substance abuse on a scale most of you are unfamiliar with & the occasional violent crime* define the local scene pretty well. Now on to personal stuff. The only reason I got that cabinet maker's apprenticeship I mentioned earlier was because a friend of mine from high school's uncle already worked there. When the factory closed down I was always asking my friend if he knew of any work. Long story short he didn't but he was part of the local Chicano movement and told me all about it & its links to the larger labor movement & somehow I learned about Marxism through him relating the history of the movement to me. Here is where I also stumbled upon the first three lessons of Idpol I'm going to relate to you 1.) Minorities generally do have concerns that MOST white people don't have to deal with and while these are fundamentally linked to capitalism said minorities can, do & will form groups to deal with them in the absence of a larger labor movement (In the case of San Diego's hispanics this is the very real & very open racial profiling of them by armed state agents who can, do & will arrest innocent people & separate families of "illegals"). 2.) It really is possible for "white trash" blue collar workers (in this case me) to work with Latino immigrants in a joint political struggle against capitalism BUT the language barrier is sadly very, very real. 3.) White labor competes against white labor all the time. I got put out of a job by mormons from another state. Ergo "stopping" illegal immigration is no guarantee of job security & wage increases whatsoever.* (though apparently we have the lowest violent crime rate of America's top ten cities at 3 per 1,000 citizens per year)
Fast forward a few years and I had disengaged with the Chicano movement a bit and was more involved with a "Marxist-Leninist" reading group ran by the Party for Socialism and Liberation. Around the same time a different friend of mine who I hadn't seen from high school came back to live in San Diego after studying engineering over in Boston. He was Vietnamese & his parents owned a small Vietnamese restaurant that was very profitable but for some reason they had stopped funding his college tuition. I asked what was up with that because I knew it wasn't a question of money & it turns out he had developed paranoid schizophrenia since I last saw him & attacked his girlfriend up in Boston during a psychotic episode. I made the mistake of inviting him into that reading group because I thought it would offer him some sense of community & stability (one of the worst decisions I ever fucking made let me tell you) & he slowly developed a really gross set of politics which I cannot even begin to describe. The geriatric idiots from the PSL tried to teach him Vietnamese history particularly about the Vietnamese national liberation struggle & never bothered to really teach him anything about Marx. Anyway at one point I started reading Trotsky's History of the October Revolution on my own time and I started to make the case that it should be read because it had more relevance to everyone than constantly harping on about the Vietnam War (most of the people in charge of the reading group were old enough to have been a part of the anti-war movement and they obviously preferred treading on familiar ground instead of dealing with shit which had wider implications or demanded they consider building a revolutionary movement in the United States as a prerequisite to building socialism in any other nation) anyway long story short me and a guy who defended me were kicked out of the reading group for being "Trotskyite wreckers" but not my Vietnamese friend.
So it was that a bunch of idiots filled a paranoid schizophrenic with a load of Stalinist & Maoist people's war bullshit & conspiracy theories until he eventually left the movement because he thought it wasn't nationalist enough and that their people's war wasn't being waged in earnest. Now bear it in mind that this guy didn't speak a lick of Vietnamese, had never been to Vietnam, and was out of his fucking head at the best of times and you can see they were already on the wrong track but it gets worse. So this guy goes out and he looks around and he sees that the only "anti-establishment" political group that seems to be fighting a "real" "people's war" against "foreign invaders" is a group called the Minutemen Project. Now for those who don't know the Minuteman Project is a leftover far right group from the 1960's who used to be known simply as The Minutemen, it disappeared for a few decades but now it is back. Today they're active from Seattle all the way down to here and then east all the way to Phoenix, Arizona. Their main thing today is harassing immigrants, intercepting/dis-incentivizing illegal border crossings (without any authority of course), & engaging in vandalism in Arabic refugee neighborhoods. But back in the day a break off paramilitary faction of the Minutemen, called the Secret Army Organization, was funded by the FBI's counterintelligence program in an attempt to assassinate Marxist San Diego State University economics professor Peter G. Bohmer. Recently I reached back out to my friend on a vid call because I had read a news story that the co-founder of the Minutemen Project Chris Simcox had been convicted of molesting several minors. I tried to use that information to convince him to leave but instead he's only gotten more unhinged having become a skinhead during that two year interim. So yeah there's a Vietnamese Skinhead whose willingly acting as cannon fodder for a far right group with a terrorist history & he got his start in politics as an ML.
All this has led me to four conclusions about Stalinism which I'm sure won't be well received but nonetheless have to be said:
1.) Marxism-Leninism was & is the major promoter of Idpol on the far left, much, much more so than the "New Left" and/or the Frankfurt School as is generally believed. Starting in the 1960's and continuing today this comes in the form of ML's placing Stalin's class collaborationist popular front policy & Mao's equally collaborationist conception of "People's Wars of National Liberation" at the forefront of their rhetoric & theory but they're very sneaky about this. During the first two months of being in said reading group they never mentioned Stalin or Mao by name or indicated that they were the original theorists behind the works we were reading (We were reading works by American Stalinists who were just parroting the Moscow Party Line back in the 50's, 60's etc. I assume they do it this way intentionally to not scare anyone away) but by the third month they were talking about Trotskyites this, Social-Fascists that, calling Nikita Khrushchev a revisionist, talking about ongoing "Anti-Colonial struggles" in the African American community, talking about how Stalin was the most radical feminist that ever was or will be. Not a word about any of the youth unemployment or widespread substance abuse in San Diego. Not a word about creating a worker's party in the United States for the sake of revolution. Which brings me to my second point...
2.) ML's are totally divorced from reality. That Professor Peter G. Bohmer I mentioned earlier, he's still alive today and in a sense still works for the same government that tried to kill him on two separate occasions. The people in charge of that old reading group acted like shit that was wrong in the past was both still relevant and correct to begin with in the face of all historical fact & common sense. These idiots couldn't see that pumping a paranoid schizophrenic full of militarist nationalist dogma devoid of context could lead him to adopting far right political convictions. These people think that if you read an eighty five year old book they've heard bad things about you're either a deranged lunatic or a state agent either of which can't be reasoned with and needs to be kicked out for "operational security". Which again these clowns bitch and moan about "operational security" while working for the government that tried to kill them back in the 60's and 70's. They claim to be revolutionaries seeking to upend American Imperialism but they also believe in "the peaceful road to socialism". Hell the guy who kicked me out even ended up joining the Seabees!
3.) Horseshoe theory wasn't correct when it was first formulated but tankies today are doing everything in their power to prove it right. Like I mean the USSR & Maoist China were not anywhere near as morally abhorrent as the Third Reich, Fascist Italy or Imperial Japan were. They just weren't. Not even under the height of Stalin's influence or Mao's disastrous management of the Great Leap Forward or Cultural Revolution did they approach the inhumanity of Fascism empowered. The difference of course being that under Fascism war, cessation of democracy & genocide are the goal whereas under Stalin & Mao these were the result of gross incompetence in an attempt to build the opposite. That being said in complete earnestness, tankies today are far, far more concerned with preserving the legacy of a handful of personality cults than they are about learning from the Soviet Union or Maoist China whether that be about their mistakes or even how they got right what little they did (let alone applying either to our current situation). Nah today if you're going to be an ML it's all about romanticizing police states, dead & infamous dictators, military conflicts that ended in failure due to "being stabbed in the back" by "insert national, religious or ethnic demographic here" and maybe some third rate populist authors with cliched ideas you think will garner you attention or money from the neophytes of your orgs.
4.) The Far Right have no self awareness whatsoever which is why you can't trust them to be open and honest about their true political convictions. Like with my former friend he genuinely conceived of himself as some sort of anti-capitalist rebel against the establishment even as he was a part of a terror group with foundational links to the FBI that supported the President's border wall rhetoric with violent action.
Now I'm going to skip some "minor stuff" about my Uncles & cousins being proto-fascists because I've said as much elsewhere and I want to get to the last two real instances of serious leftwing Idpol fuckery I've experienced. Both happened this year & both involved members of the Democratic Socialists of America.
The first was a girl I knew in high school who is just a psycho. She's actually the ex-girlfriend of Ho Chi Skin(head). At the time she joined the DSA she was a sushi waitress studying computer programming at the same community college where I was studying world history. Eventually she got tired of working a productive job without any authority and then became a private security guard. Then when that got too challenging she became a prostitute. Then she invested the shit ton of cash she made being a prostitute into real estate. Today she is a landlady & a popular financial consultant. Three months ago she evicted two people from the apartment complex she owns in violation of the DSA's renters strike. They let her keep her membership in spite of this because she's quote "a disabled hispanic woman deserving of representation". Now the last and most recent Idpol thing to happen to me in real life has to do with my meeting a guy who claimed he was breaking off from the DSA because it was too ineffective for him & that he wanted to create "an openly communist organization that actually represents the interests of the workers." I go to meet him and he asks me a few questions and then forbids me from joining. "Why?" I ask him. "Because you lack sufficient racial consciousness. I mean dude...you don't even realize San Diego is a segregated city". I don't think I really need to explain the lessons I got from these last two as I imagine they're self apparent.
The lessons I hope people take away from all of this are that actual real life political work is hard & often requires you to learn new skills on the fly and to work with people who you have very little in common with & sometimes can barely even understand. That a large segment of far left politics in America, even those that are a part of big long established orgs & tendencies are often in the end just an aesthetic cover for what amount to cults & criminal rackets. That sometimes the city or town you live in just doesn't have the requisite forces needed to form a genuine socialist movement either because the proletariat just isn't there or because it is there but is vastly outnumbered by a much larger amount of people who have a real material interest in the wellbeing of the current capitalist world order in spite of what they may say about it. But most of all I want people to remember that in spite of all of this awful bullshit scientific socialism really is the only way to understand how the power dynamics which give birth to contemporary social ills in the first place can be defeated. If you want to get serious about politics instead of just railing against fate or making fun of the radlibs then you need to start reading Marx & Engels, Lenin & Trotsky, C.L.R. James & Ernest Mandel and most importantly of all apply the analyses you learn from them to the current socio-economic situations you find yourself in. No matter how bleak the picture it paints at least you'll know for sure what you're dealing with & I promise that helps by making things manageable.
P.S. Now I heard that Socialist Alternative is trying to establish a chapter out here in SD and I'm trying to get ahold of them so I might make an update post later if they turn out to be no better than the DSA or the PSL.

2020.09.03 02:04 dralexanderwang HOW I WENT FROM 497 MCAT (4X ATTEMPT), 2.69 UNDERGRAD BCPM AND DATE OF COMPLETION OF OCTOBER TO 4 MD INTERVIEWS AND 2 WL IN 2019 - 2020 CYCLE. THIS IS NOT A SUCCESS STORY, RATHER A TESTAMENT. YOU ARE CAPABLE. YOU ARE NOT DEFINED BY YOUR NUMBERS. YOUR CHARACTER, WORK ETHIC, AND HEART DEFINE YOU.

Why I am posting this.
This story is different. This is not a success story, rather a testament. I am writing this because for so long I didn’t think I was worthy enough to post about it until I was either a student-doctor or doctor as only then did I actually know “what I was talking about.”
.
However, I have come to find that too often we only share success and accomplishments, but rarely, if ever, do we share the journey. The times we fall short, “fail,” or face “shortcomings.” Everyone loves a success story, and trust me when I say that I wish with every ounce of my being that this was it, but it is not.
.
I am posting this because I know what it is like to be in the darkest of places, compare ourselves to others, think we are not good enough because our metrics are not on par with our counterparts, and/or the demons we face by thinking how could we ever accomplish such a feat without seeing someone like me do it. So I hope this post reaches at least one person who is facing similar battles of where I used to be regardless of your trade.
.
There is nothing more I want in this world than to finally receive the Acceptance Letter that reassures me that everything I have been working towards for the last 10 years (swipe to see where I started, yes physically, but also mentally) is finally here and that I am, in fact, capable despite all the demons I’ve had to face internally and externally.
.
Rather, I am sharing because, despite the accolades or accomplishments, I have begun to fall in love with the journey. No entitlement. No expectations. The true climb that has measured my character more times than I can count.
.
Now, I am eternally grateful to wake up every day healthy and for the opportunity to fight to turn my dreams into reality. So here it is in the slides above.
YOU ARE MORE THAN THE METRICS THAT TRY TO DEFINE US.
First and foremost, for those of you in the current application cycle who are feeling discouraged because you see others around you getting invitations to interview at medical schools you applied to and dreamt of, feel like you’re too late in the cycle, or realizing that your GPA/MCAT score is nowhere near the “medians” for schools and the countless other demons we pose on ourselves — just know that you are capable, it is still early, and you are more than the numbers, that try, but don’t define us.
This is an emotional and grueling process but if I can offer you a beacon of hope last cycle I landed 4 MD interviews despite a sub-par 500 MCAT (4th attempt with a 121 CARS), undergraduate science GPA of 2.69, and date of completion in October (since I had taken MCAT in September). I submitted 25 secondaries the week I got my score because although I wanted nothing more than a perfect score, I was proud as I had left it all on the table. I dove deep to figure out who I am, the physician I aspire to be, and applied to schools that would help ME become the physician and person I NEED to be for the vulnerable and marginalized. Unfortunately, my outcome wasn’t a success story that ended with an “A” per se. But I did end up on 2 WL and continued to apply pressure in my personal and professional experiences that have carried me into this cycle even stronger than before. I don’t see these trials and tribulations of having to re-apply as “failures” or “shortcomings,” rather GROWTH YEARS. I’ve fallen in love with the journey and the climb, not the accolades. Because at the end of the day only those with scar tissue survive the darkest of times. KEEP AT IT! But I wasn’t always like this, so let me tell you more about how I got from where I used to be to where I am now.
My journey started in 2010 but it wasn’t until 2015 that I truly learned about what it took. 2x MCAT (486 and 490)
My journey to wanting to become a physician started 10 years ago. In the summer of 2010, as I was going into my senior year of high school, I stepped foot for the first time on campus outside of my public school system to receive my first exposure to healthcare career options as a Med-Start Scholar. It was here that my local medical school awarded me the privilege to believe that my inconceivable dream of becoming a doctor was possible. Thus, inspired by Med-Start’s gift, it not only laid the foundation of my premedical journey for years to come but an opportunity to share the insight I gained in hopes to create a more meaningful destiny for others and myself and change the bleak realities that afflict us.
However, it wasn't until after I graduated from college in 2015 that I truly started to learn about what it actually takes to get to medical school, one of which was the MCAT. The first time I started to prepare for this exam was in 2014 with a Kaplan course but I didn’t find the course too helpful. It was too general and I needed to focus on the things I was weak in. I didn't even take the MCAT at the time. My first official attempt at the MCAT was Fall 2015. I didn't take any practice tests and the results showed. I scored a 486. I didn’t even know an ounce of what I know now and I wish someone would have stopped me or told me more about how much of a beast this exam was. Being the first person in my entire family to go to college and first to pursue the medical profession, I did not have any mentors or support as we have now with social media. The only test prep company I know about was Kaplan and I don’t think NextStep existed yet (UWorld for MCAT sure didn't). This would have made a world of difference. But regardless, I carried on. I didn’t apply to med school and rather started to take science courses at my local community college as a DIY post-bac and build my clinical experience by volunteering at 3 hospitals simultaneously and working as a pharm tech.
Circa 2016. First SMP Interview.
My second attempt at the MCAT was in 2016. But yet again didn’t take any practice tests. I was now working full time as an MA Mon-Fri from 8a-5pm with hour-long commutes every day and then part-time as a scribe on the weekends. Two 12-hour shifts Saturday and Sunday. I did both of these jobs for ~10 months straight, no days off. It was one of the most challenging times but also rewarding to be at the bedside ranging from private clinic setting, OR, and ER. But all that to say that going into this 2nd MCAT attempt, I told myself reviewing content was good enough, maybe the first attempt was a fluke. Fall 2016, I scored a 490. Devastated. Again, I didn’t apply to medical school but I did apply to a 5-year MD, MS linkage program offered by my state’s medical school for state residents and was fortunate to be one of 30 applicants from a pool of 400ish to interview. It was humbling to finally be allowed to share my journey and aspirations. However, I fell short and didn’t get accepted. So I reflected on my academic, personal, and professional shortcomings, ultimately, weighing my options for post-bac/SMP/or master’s and opted for a research-intensive M.S at my local Med school.
Circa 2017. Master’s Degree, Basic, Translational, and Clinical Research. First AMCAS application cycle (2018-2019) with Dr. Gray and 3rd MCAT.
In early 2017, I started my MS while continuing to work as an ER scribe. Between the graduate coursework, overnight shifts in the ER, and lab bench experiments throughout the day, this was a tough time. But thankfully by the end of 2017, I had completed the courses (19 science credit hours with a 3.50+) and now as I neared 2 years as an ER scribe, I decided to transition into something new. I started 2018, finalizing my lab bench research as part of my thesis while concurrently working in clinical research at my local university hospital.
I preface with this because it was during this time that I finally felt whole enough to shoot my shot and apply to medical school for the first time in the 2018 - 2019 cycle. But if I wanted to do it right for my third MCAT attempt and first application cycle, I knew I had to invest in professional help and hired a NextStep MCAT Tutor as well as had the honor to work with Dr. R. Gray from u/DOCGRAY During this time Dr. Gray pushed me to not sell or tell, rather show. This is the first time that I truly started to be introspective with the culmination of my academic, professional, and personal life experiences that made me into the person I was. I knew that because I did not have the “perfect” grades or MCAT scores to fall back on and get me through the doors of admissions committee members in a pool of 7,000 - 13,000 applicants and into a secondary or interview, I had to use every space available to me on my Primary AMCAS application to share my story from where I started to where I was. And so I did, while concurrently still working, finalizing my lab bench research, and preparing for my third MCAT attempt.
With my Nextstep Tutor - we built a study plan that accounted for both my work schedule at the hospital and lab duties in a 2-3 month summer prep (Sept 2018 Test Date). I put in the work to follow the plan and benchmarks as much as possible but at the end of the day, I wasn’t delivering on the expectations set before me. For example, we met weekly and had a plan for what I needed to do every day, end of the week, etc., but I would only do half, or I wouldn’t fully review my exam or questions. It’s not that I didn’t want to, I just could not find the time or energy at the end of a workday coupled with an evening in the research lab to study. It was the last thing of my day and by that time I was very exhausted. But I carried on, I took about 12 practice tests with scores ranging from 490 - 502 but I failed to still understand that it was not about the score nor the number of exams. It was about the quality of review and identifying where you went wrong in the reasoning. Specifically — what is the question asking? Can I answer it before looking at the answer choices? Secondly, which answer choices can I eliminate and why? Thirdly, which is the answer I picked and why is it correct or incorrect. If I got it right, did I get it right because I actually know why it’s right, or did I just get lucky? If I got it wrong, why did I eliminate the right answer and why is my answer the incorrect one. I didn’t know that at the time. My NextStep tutor would tell me these things but it didn’t click.
AMCAS 2018 - 2019 Med School Interview with MCAT 492.
So at the end of our MCAT prep, I decided to still move forward and take it in Sept 2018. I scored a 492. I only went up to 2 points. I was so defeated. I remember the day clearly. It was a Monday morning when my score was released. I spent the following two days defeated and reflecting until I took ownership of it all. At this time, I had only added 3 schools to my AMCAS Primary (my two-state MD schools and another MD out of state) but given the outcome of my score, I decided to not move forward with secondaries. I felt no school would interview me with such a low score. So I closed the figurative chapter of the cycle. However, at the end of that same week in October, I received an email with an invitation to interview in early 2019 for the school out of state that didn’t require a secondary. I couldn’t believe it. I wept.
This was the first time in my life that I was thousands of miles away from home pursuing my dreams. It felt so surreal for Lil ‘ol me to be living such a feeling. Something I would not have imagined to be possible coming as a first-gen Latino from a low-income and single mother household in an area where I was statistically more likely to drop out, let alone become a doctor. It had never been done before. I remember the night before my interview I called my mom, all my aunts and uncles, and my closest friends so that they could live through the experience with me. Show them what this Midwest city was like since I was the first in my entire family to be so far from home. The day of the interview felt like a dream walking on campus so different from what I was accustomed to and surrounded with such inspiring ppl, each of us with our own stories. But I did feel out of place for a bit because of my Lil’ 492 MCAT and seeing everyone’s badge relative to my state school. Nonetheless, I was so humbled and grateful for the privilege to even be there regardless of the outcome. It was what I had been praying for and working towards and there I was. Thereafter, I remember calling my mom after the interview to tell her how it went and how grateful I was for all the sacrifices she made to bring me to this world and moving to an unfamiliar country so that my opportunities were better than what she endured. The fact that my grandparents raised my mother and 8 other siblings in a house made of scrap metal in the ranches of Mexico while sharing a liter of milk between all of them and selling newspapers at the age of 5, and that one day I would come to this world and have the privilege to walk the halls of a world-renowned U.S. medical institution in hopes to join the noble profession of becoming a physician, made my heart so full of gratitude. If this was as far as my journey came, I was fulfilled.
2019 - 2020 AMCAS Application. Solo. 4th MCAT (497). UC-Davis/AAMC Conference.
Fast-FWD, as the 2018 - 2019 cycle neared its end, I got the school’s final decision. Unfortunately, I was not admitted because of the competitiveness of the MCAT scores in the interview pool.
But again, I was eternally grateful to the school because they had given me an opportunity not awarded to many, let alone inconceivable to someone like me. Now, transitioning into the 2019 - 2020 cycle, I needed to do it all alone. I knew that if I took the MCAT a 4th time then I needed to apply all the things I learned, reflecting on to self-study so that only I could keep myself accountable. No one else. Additionally, I also had to make the tough decision to take a step back from some of my responsibilities. Something had to give so that MCAT wasn’t the last task of the day, it needed to be the first.
Thus, I dedicated Summer 2019 to study for my 4th retake on Sept 2019 while revamping my AMCAS application. With a late MCAT, I had decided from the beginning of my prep to only apply to the same 3 schools from 2018-2019. In October 2019, I got my score back - 497. Didn’t increase as much as I wanted but I was damn proud because I had put in so much work. Specifically, I was very proud because during this time I had gone to war with the man in the mirror. I needed to dig deep and remind myself of my “why.” From this, I realized that I no longer wanted to live for the future, rather, I wanted to start to live for the now. For so long I felt I had to wait to become a doctor or student-doctor to do the things I was passionate about but I wasn’t going to limit myself from serving others any longer. Witnessing educational, social, and health inequities for the entirety of my life, I wanted to do what I could with what I had for others regardless of how big or small it was. And so I did, which helped forge me into the person I am today. The culmination of it all led me to envision who I am, who I aspire to be, and the physician I NEED to become. Thus, I was no longer waiting on the future me, accolades, or accomplishments to define me. I was living whole-heartedly in the now and I let that all show in my everyday actions for both others and myself.
Because of this I now had clarity and decided to research and apply to medical schools that I knew would help me get to where I aspire to and NEED to be. I was no longer trying to paint myself for them, rather, I began to choose the schools I knew would help me become that person and future physician. I shifted my mindset and school choice from where I wanted to be to where I NEEDED to be, and as such, I made sure I showcased that in my secondaries and every interaction that followed thereafter.
As a result, I applied to 25 medical schools upon receipt of my score in October and completed all of their secondaries that same week before heading to the UC-Davis Pre-Health and AAMC Minority Student Medical Conferences. Here, I put myself in front of Admissions members for schools I was strongly interested in to put a face to both my application as well as their school. I wanted them to know that despite the numbers on paper, they do not define me because if so, I would have thrown the towel in long ago. From this, I was able to meet inspiring admissions members who also work tirelessly to help break barriers and help shape the future generation of physicians that one day will care for them and their loved ones.
2019 - 2020 AMCAS Application. MCAT 497. 4 MD Interviews. 2 WL.
In November 2019, I got my first invitation to interview for the cycle for Jan 2020. I was re-interviewing at the same place that had previously granted me the privilege. I was determined to go back more prepared than the first time, stronger and better. In December, I received my second interview for Jan 2020 as well. At this point, I had considered a success cycle regardless of the outcome. My heart was full. However, in Jan, as I landed in the city the day before my first interview of the cycle, I took my phone off airplane mode and checked my email. At this point, I had already started to see some rejections but this one was different because I had received a third interview for Feb 2020. Y’all, I cried. Grown ass man tears in my seat. I did not even bother to get off the plane cause I sat there and took it all in. I had been praying for and working towards these opportunities for 4 years strong. But eventually, I had to get off the plane and get ready for my re-interview. This time around I felt even better because I knew myself and left it all on the table with regards to who I was, who I aspire to be, and who I need to become.
I returned home after my interview and a few days later received my 4th interview of the cycle. Now, Y’all know I cried again. But the most surreal thing about it was that this school had rejected me the month before, so I thought maybe it was a glitch. Maybe I was being played by the application system. So I logged in and saw that the interview date was 7 days away. I called admissions and was informed that it was real. The committee had reconsidered me out of a pool of 10,000+ applicants. The gratitude that I had was so overwhelming because I would have never thought that a 4th retaker of the MCAT with a 497 (121 CARS) coupled with a 2.69 BCPM GPA and the very late date of completion of October would lead me to 4 MD interviews, at schools where I was nowhere near their averages, medians, or metrics. I was a whole ass point away. Not 0.1 or 0.3, a whole “1.0+.” But yet here I was. Fighting to make my dreams become a reality. Within the 4-6 weeks of Jan and Feb, I had 4 interviews. I once again got to roam campuses I once dreamt of, meet amazing applicants and mentors/friends who helped me prepare for the interview, and envision the life I one day hope to bring to fruition.
By Mid-March I received the Committee on Admissions decision that I was Waitlisted at 2 of the schools. Yes, there was nothing more that I wanted than the official Acceptance Letter after a long 10-year journey. But the fact is I was so grateful and honored to interview and still be in the consideration as a WL/Alternate. I joked with some of my class friends that I was going to offer to bring my own chair or offer to stand since there were “no more seats.” But regardless, I continue to build on the academic, professional, and personal initiatives that drive me as the type of student-doctor I one day aspire to be. Thus, I sent in 3 Updates/LOI’s by the end of the cycle, hoping, praying, and working towards getting that official “A.” I could not let off the throttle, I was so close. But again, being in love with the journey and my growth and development, I never stopped keeping in contact with the schools that also rejected me. I had a genuine interest in every school I applied to because they would allow me to become the person and physician I NEED to be. In all, I kept in touch with every school while preparing for my Master’s defense, building on other projects/initiatives, revamping my now 2020 - 2021 AMCAS application, and yes, preparing for my 5th MCAT retake, which brings me to why I write this today. Reflection on my shortcomings from the 2019 - 2020 cycle, I knew that two main factors were the date of completion of my application (October) as well as breaking that 500+ MCAT.
2020 - 2021 AMCAS. 5th MCAT Retake and Score Release Yesterday 9/1/2020.
July 1st, 2020 I submitted my 2020 - 2021 AMCAS. Thereafter, I dedicated a solid 6-weeks preparing for my 5th MCAT retake on August 14th with a focus on practice and review coupled with UWorld and Anki. Although my scores don’t support it, I’ve come to understand that the MCAT is not a content exam per se, it is an “application,” exam. How can we use the info we are given to apply it to the situation or question being asked. There is more to it but that is not the purpose of this post, it is to highlight that I worked tirelessly to focus on my biggest weaknesses at first (CARS, C/P) and then solidify my strengths (B/B and P/S). I started with a 493 on BluePrint’s Diagnostic and the highest I scored was ~511 on AAMC Sample. I received my official score yesterday, Sept 1st, and I received a 497, again. Trust me when I say that it did hurt, especially as I saw my CARS stay the same at 121 despite my highest being 126 and mastering 75% of the CARS QPack Vol. 2. But my science increased to a record high with B/B as my highest at 127. This hurt but I am honestly grateful that my overall score did not decrease and that my strong science scores hopefully reaffirm to the admissions committee that the early undergraduate shortcomings that are heavily influenced by BCPM GPA do not define my academic readiness for medical education. I have been working hard for years to excel in my upper-division, DIY post-bac, and graduate courses to defeat the stigma of these early grades as a first-gen biomedical engineering major and pre-med. Additionally, I am also aware that some med schools do super scores (taking the highest of each section from multiple attempts). In all, I am now leaving it to the medical schools I am applying to this cycle to decide if my MCAT supports but not define me in my overall candidacy. If an institution is where you are meant to be, time will show you. In this journey, there are two outcomes, either we fold or they do. And I have yet to do so as I will continue to place my application on their desk.
Currently. YOU ARE CAPABLE. TDLR:
In all, if you have made it to the end of this post, I want to thank you for taking the time to read and hope that it brings some peace in that YOU ARE CAPABLE. METRICS DO NOT DEFINE YOU. YOUR HEART, WORK ETHIC, AND CHARACTER DO. PPL will say that I am an outlier, got lucky, and/or underrepresented in medicine (URM) but for sake of entertaining these ppl, rest assured that even if those things were true, I am nowhere near my peers with regards to the average matriculant GPA/MCAT (~507-510). I share my story in hopes that it serves a testament because along this journey I have met countless amazing and inspiring individuals who too often get discouraged by their metrics, journey, adversity, or lack of mentors or peers who look like us accomplish such a feat. Lastly, I will leave you with this:
Now, in the words of the late John Lewis, let's get into ‘good trouble,’ as we break barriers, trailblaze, and pave the future of medicine that our people desperately need. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me on here or IG: u/dr.alexanderwang. You are not alone, I got you.

2020.08.31 17:01 MotionLawImmigration Missing Information in Thousands of Asylum Applications

Missing Information in Thousands of Asylum Applications

The US has always been characterized as a first world country that offers international protection to vulnerable communities through political asylum or refuge.
It is the destiny of thousands of immigrants who try to flee from the danger of their countries, whether because of political persecution, religious beliefs, sexual orientation, domestic violence, abuse, inter alia.
However, even though the US is recognized for welcoming people who need it most, the Trump administration has considerably increased restrictions and requirements for political asylum applications.

Let’s see some examples:

  1. In early 2019, the Trump administration signed an agreement with the Mexican government called the Migrant Protection Protocol (MPP), also known as “Remain in Mexico”. Broadly speaking, this policy states that asylum seekers must remain in Mexico while awaiting a response to their applications or until they have a hearing with a local judge. They live in temporary shelters or foundations, usually overcrowded, and survive on donations from surrounding communities and immigrant rights advocates. Nowadays, with the arrival of the global Coronavirus pandemic, their health is at risk and face-to-face hearings are substantially behind schedule.
  2. In early July 2020, the Trump administration announced a new rule for asylum seekers, which states that border forces can reject applications if immigrants could pose a threat to the health of the American population. It means that, if asylum seekers have any symptoms related to a pandemic virus or a disease easily transmitted by human contact, their immigration applications could be denied.
  3. The US Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS), which is the branch of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) in charge of processing immigration applications, recently stated that as of October 2, 2020, asylum seekers must pay $50. This makes the US one of only four countries in the world that charge for political asylum or refuge.
As a result, the Trump administration has significantly modified the process established for asylum applications. In addition to that, the current juncture also contributed to increase restrictions.
Do you need to apply for political asylum in the US? Don’t hesitate to follow experts’ advice, contact Motion Law Immigration today!

Missing information in immigration records

A recent report by The Union-Tribute shows that immigration records from the Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR) are not always complete.
The report states that there are more than 1 million immigration cases affected by the lack of information in the records of the federal agencies in charge of the immigration processes in the US.
The main findings show that official records do not have important details such as:
  • If immigrants were already living in the US before applying for political asylum.
  • What was the situation of immigrants before applying for asylum or refuge.
  • Immigrants’ gender.
  • If immigrants are already hold a Green Card or permanent residence.
  • If immigrants have an immigration attorney or a trusted sponsor.
Motion Law keeps you up to date with the latest immigration news, visit our Blog section.

A possible solution

It is true that the responsibility for keeping immigration records up to date lies with the federal agencies in charge of processing applications. However, immigration applications are incomplete on many occasions, making it difficult for records to be complete.
Therefore, a possible solution is for immigrants to make sure to fill in every space on the forms. The best alternative to fill out the forms correctly is to have the help of experts in immigration matters.
In addition to that, some processes have been considerably modified due to the global Coronavirus pandemic, thus, it is best to follow the advice of specialists who are up to date with current immigration policies.
