DACA Fights For Its Survival

Despite the apparent benefits that the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals has brought in the United States, the extremists of GOP are starting attacks against the program. Ken Paxton, the Attorney General of Texas, drafted a letter asking the Trump administration to revoke the program. The letter signed by nine attorneys and the red states’ governor stated that if they do not meet their demand, they will take legal action. However, they do not expect the cancellation of the DACA program to be at once. Instead, the Trump administration should not accept new candidates and not make any renewals.

This move is putting a lot of fear to the beneficiaries of the DACA program. In its fifth year, the program has more than eight hundred members who fear the termination of their protection. John Kelly, the Secretary of Homeland Security, held a closed meeting with the members of the Hispanic Caucus to discuss the issue. The secretary stated the legal cases that are already a challenge to the program. He also recognized the benefit the program has on the economy. The beneficiary of the DACA program either work or study or do both and the income pay for their studies. For the years the program has been on operation, the members’ earnings have increased and paid more taxes. The Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund promised to give support, guidance, and information in the fight for DACA and finding a lasting solution to the problem.

Frontera Fund

Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund is a fund founded by Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin to fund organizations that are fighting for human, civil and migrant rights. Michael and Jim directed the settlement they received from the lawsuit against the County Sheriff to help fight for rights. The three million seven hundred and fifty thousand dollars will make a big difference in fighting for a good cause.

About DACA

The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals is a relief from deportation for undocumented youths. These youth, however, should meet specific prerequisites to qualify for the relief that is renewable in two years. They are also offered a social security number and given chances to work in the United States. The DACA program beneficiaries can also acquire in-state-tuition fees and driver’s license. The US recognizes individuals who came before their sixteenth birthday as eligible immigrants hence the need to protect them. A person is required to make sure they meet all the qualifications and then apply to be part of the program.

George Soros Donates The Majority Of His Personal Fortune To The Open Society Foundations

Posted onCategoriesCompany, Financial

Born in Hungary in 1932, billionaire hedge fund icon, George Soros has built a strong reputation as one of the leading liberal political donors and philanthropists based on using his personal fortune to aid the development of democratic principles in many areas of the world. In a bid to extend the liberal principles he has championed in the U.S. and across portions of Africa, Asia, and Europe, George Soros established his own philanthropic group called the Open Society Foundations which has now benefitted from the generosity of the Holocaust survivor with a major donation towards the end of 2017; the donation of George Soros in 2017 reached its zenith with $18 billion donated to the Open Society Foundations from the fortune which made the hedge fund manager one of the 20 richest people in the world.

The Open Society Foundations was established to pay homage to the philosophical theory developed by French philosopher, Henri Bergson before being expanded upon by the Austrian philosopher, Karl Popper. Popper had written his own expansion of the open society theory in the book, “The Open Society and Its Enemies” during World War II and was introduced to George Soros following his refugee journey from Hungary in 1947 to study at the London School of Economics. Supporting liberal causes has seen George Soros secure a role as one of the leading donors to the Democratic Party of the U.S. where he has used his influence to warn of  rising threat of capitalism he reported in The Atlantic.

Since the earliest form of the Open Society Foundations was established in 1979 the group has benefitted from an estimated level of funding reaching $14 billion from the fortune of George Soros. In 2017, during the days prior to the $18 billion donation to the Open Society Foundations being made public, George Soros had his worth estimated by Forbes to be $23 billion as the magazine had already factored in a $3 billion donation to the Open Society Foundations rumored to have taken place in the earlier months of the year. Soros has fallen to just $8 billion but his Soros Fund Management company still holds assets estimated to be more than $20 billion; Soros has become one of the leading donors to many Democrat causes over the course of 2016 and 2017 as he has vowed to continue to fight the right-wing agenda of U.S. President Donald Trump.

One of the best-known parts of the work of the Hungarian-born investment specialists is the fact he has spent the majority of his career from the 1970s onward looking to expand upon his philanthropic work. Soros believes the fact he has been given the skills to develop a strong financial career provides him with the opportunity to assist as many individuals and groups with a similar liberal view of the world as himself.

Big Money Politicians Targeted By End Citizens United

The 2018 midterm elections are now just months ago and the End Citizens United PAC has fired the first shots across the bow of Republican politicians who are known for accepting major financial donations for their election campaigns. End Citizens United President, Tiffany Muller revealed the list of the 20 conservative politicians who have taken the money of major political billionaire donors as they seek to influence the way the policies of both political parties are formed in the coming years; the reason for targeting Republicans has been explained by Tiffany Muller as being a result of Democrats being more open to making a change to the Citizens United Supreme Court decision of 2010.

Initially formed in 2015 to raise awareness of the problem of big money in the U.S. political landscape, End Citizens United has become a major force after the 2016 Presidential election showed the number of those concerned about the influence of billionaire donors continues to rise. The 2010 Supreme Court decision has continued to be important for many as donors such as the Koch Brothers are pushing forward a political agenda of their own through the promise of a high level of financial support for various conservative candidates in each election cycle.

Having grown to include more than three million members, End Citizens United is now one of the most important and feared PAC’s in the U.S. political environment with a large amount of power among Democrat and independent voters. The success shown by End Citizens United in raising more than $25 million prior to the 2016 Presidential elections has given the group the confidence to position itself against some of the most powerful Republicans in Washington D.C. The “Big Money 20” list revealed from the headquarters of End Citizens United in Washington D.C. is headed by two of the most famous conservatives on Capitol Hill; Texas Senator Ted Cruz and House Speaker Ted Ryan of Wisconsin have both been named to the list of top targets End Citizens United will be looking to remove from office during the 2018 midterm election cycle according to usatoday.com.

One of the main priorities for End Citizens United is to ensure the number of independent voters who hear their message about removing big money from politics is heard in a positive light. Despite the success achieved during the 2016 election cycle, End Citizens United trialed a number of ways of looking for support for Democrat candidates among independent voters who responded positively to the message of financial reform spearheaded by Democrats which will form the basis of the election messages pushed forward in 2018.

Securus Technologies receive raving customers’ reviews

Securus Technologies is one of the leading providers of technological solutions for incarceration facilities to ensure public safety and to aid in investigations, monitoring as well as correction measures. Recently, I came across a press release by this company that showed customers’ comments about their services.

 

The number of comments is huge, meaning Securus Technologies is doing a commendable job. But before we see some of those comments, who is Securus Technologies? It is a technology company that has its headquarters in Dallas, Texas and has over 3500 correctional facilities under its wings across North America.

 

In one of the comments, the customer talked about how Securus Technologies helped them arrest one of their corrupt stuff thanks to helping they received from Securus company. Also, due to the company’s ability to monitor phone calls coming in and out of prisons, the agencies were able to get vital information that led to the unearthing of usage and sale of illegal drugs.

 

Also, the company helps them curb the movement of contraband goods into and out of the facility.

 

I’m sure without Securus Technologies; this couldn’t have happened. It is hard to nap some of the inmates because they are very crafty when doing something illegal; after all, what do you think brought them in? But with Securus Technologies sophisticated software, such things do not happen.

 

If you doubt me, ask yourself why this customer I read his comments saying that they have been using Securus Technologies services for ten years now. It is because this company puts forward their clients’ needs before anything else. They have a mission of ensuring that the public is safe.

 

The software used is to track and recover lost, stolen or contraband goods is called LBS software. And one customer mentioned that this software helped them recover goods worth millions. One of the comments also mentioned that use of LBS software along with Investigator Pro is enough to steer Securus Technologies to the top.

 

As you can see, all the mentioned services helped the incarceration centers to provide adequate services, for instance, investigation and gathering of evidence to assist in building a case.

 

I’m sure without Securus Technologies, the brothers and sisters behind bars would still be causing havoc outside through coordination. Plus, there could be a rise in cases of drug use which may lead to death.

 

Dr. Mark Mckenna has Started a Medical Company That Looks to Change Elective Healthcare

Dr. Mark McKenna is a medical doctor, originally from New Orleans, who is also an advocate for patients, everywhere. He received his medical training while attending Tulane University Medical School and went on, afterwards, to work closely with his father in the field of medicine. As an MD and MBA, the Florida and Georgia State Board of Medical Examiners have given him license to practice, and he has worked hard to help many different patients in the past.

After Hurricane Katrina ravaged New Orleans, McKenna’s businesses were devastated, and he was forced to start over while helping to rebuild New Orleans. In 2007, he was inspired to startup ShapeMed, which was a medical practice that focused on aesthetics. After he sold the company in 2014, his time was freed up so that he could serve the public as the National Medical Director of Life Time Fitness Inc. By 2017 he was ready to go into business for himself and the public again, and so he started up OVME, which is a medical aesthetic company that is looking to change the way that elective healthcare works.

The idea for OVME came from Mckenna’s decade of experience in the medical aesthetics field. He recently revealed that being part of a company that he sold showed him other areas in the industry that could be improved. A normal day for Dr. Mckenna includes helping to wake his daughter up so they can share breakfast, and then he goes to work. After dinner with his family, in the evening, he goes to Jiu Jitsu training and then returns home to catch up on work before going to bed. He also regularly meditates to build focus and visualize his goals. To know more about him click here.

Looking back, Dr. Mckenna feels that he would of paid more attention to discovering his passion when he was younger. He believes, now, that moving slower sometimes is ok, and that in his hurry to get to his next goals in life, he may have moved too quickly through parts of his life. Without having a direction in life, he thinks that speed and moving too fast is useless. To take some of his own advice, Mckenna is an avid reader who knows that it has helped him to become a better entrepreneur.

Lacey and Larkin Expose Evil as They See It

Our world grows darker every minute. Nationalism and totalitarianism are wreaking havoc on our precious country. Tyranny rules us and evil dominates us. During this time of hardship, some brave people are taking a stand and saying that we will not have any of it.

These people stand for human rights which belongs to all of us for God created us in His image. Two of these people who are standing for the goodness and freedom are Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin. Read more: Phoenix New Times | Wikipedia

Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin have taken a stand against one who is known as America’s Toughest Sheriff. This man, whose real name is Sheriff Joe Arpaio and works for the Maricopa County, has committed atrocities against his fellow man.

It was Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin who discovered these horrors and vowed that they would make them known. They did this by publishing their findings in the Phoenix New Times And The Village Voice media. What follows are the atrocities they discovered.

The first atrocity was that Sheriff Joe Arpaio replaced his old police officers with new officers who were known as being racially biased toward Latinos. The second atrocity was that he encouraged those racist police officers to beginning profiling racially and looking for illegal immigrants.

The third atrocity was Arpaio providing rewards for any police officer who was able to convict an illegal immigrant. The 4th was that he purposefully create jail cells to punish the Latinos for coming to this country. When Michael Lacey and Larkin discovered these things, they had to make them known.

Needless to say, when the news hit the stands a bunch of pressure came down on Sheriff Arpaio. In his anger, he went to those same racist police officers he hired and asked them if they would support him and gaining revenge against Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin. Of course, these morally depraved individuals said yes.

Sheriff Arpaio would use his connections to procure an illegal warrant to enter the homes of Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin. Once he was inside, he threatened that if they did not give him the evidence that they had, he would haul them off to jail. When they refused to give in, he made good on his threat. However, Sheriff Arpaio’s plan would backfire.

The story broke that a fascist man in Maricopa County by the name of Joe Arpaio had illegally detained two citizens without honoring their rights. Once this news broke, pressure forced Sheriff Arpaio to let them go free.

In the end, Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin would sue the Maricopa County and win millions in their settlement. They used this money to start the Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund
