Devasting economic effect in local communities by detaining and deporting a non-criminal undocumented taxpayer.

U.S.A. – Each non-criminal undocumented immigrant detained and later removed from a community will create an economic gap of about $25k to $50k in earned income including personal, sales tax, consumption of goods and property tax generated loss annually. Also, it will cost the state and the U.S. government approximately up to $10K or more in deportation costs including holding the undocumented inmate at a local county jail or Private Prison Corporations (PPC), which costs between $130 to $330 per day to hold at a PPC, in addition immigration court costs and flight costs to country of orgin.Obama during the end of his term attempted to phase out private prisons when contracts expired, but Trump’s U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions recinded that memo and is promoting to continue to contract with PPCs. According to a 2015 report by the Council on Hemispheric Affairs, PPC’s earned $3B for holding ICE detainees. An estimated 34,000 of undocumented immigrants are incarcerated daily costing about $159 each to hold.

So, the U.S. economic stability in some urban and rural communities, which depend on undocumented labor including farm and dairy workers are faced with a loss of workers that can’t easily be replaced once removed by the Trump’s ICE initiative. Does Trump and his administration know that every non-criminal undocumented immigrant removed from the local and the U.S. economic system has a long lasting effect in the areas from which removed?

• Undocumented immigrants paid $35B within 10 years to the Medicare Trust Fund even when they don’t qualify for benefits. (HNNUSA/Hispanic News Network U.S.A.)

• The Social Security Administration reported that in the Earning Suspense File has $1.3T in taxes in earn wages, which most of it was collected from undocumented immigrants. (The Atlantic)

• In 2014, Stephen Goss, the Chief Actuary of the Social Security Administration told Vice News that in the last decade, an estimated 11M undocumented immigrants reside in the U.S. and about 7M are unauthorized workers and 3.1M of those worked with fake or expired Social Security numbers and paid automatic payroll taxes to the federal government. In 2010, a $13B annual net contribution was made to the Social Security Trust Fund.
In the last ten years, unauthorized workers have paid an estimated $100B into the trust fund and most of the unauthorized workers will never benefit from their tax contributions later in life, according to Goss. (HNNUSA/Hispanic News Network U.S.A.)

Hundreds Of People Marched And Rallied On “Not My President Day” In Milwaukee

Protesters against Trump’s advocacy for hate, racism and bigotry held a rally and a march in Milwaukee.

February 21, 2017

Milwaukee, WI – On Monday, hundreds of people gathered at Zeidler Union Square Park to hold a rally on “Not My President Day” and then marched to U.S. Senator Ron Johnson’s (R) office at the federal courthouse. One of the speakers, Ana Dvorak, a community organizer for Citizen Action of Wisconsin spoked against the GOP repeal of the Affordable Health Care Act. Dvorak told the crowd that the Republicans, Trump, U.S. Senator Ron Johnson, U.S. Representative Paul Ryan were playing with people’s lives by trying to repeal Obama Care, but “if we fight back, they won’t be able to kick 30M people out of the health coverage. We are the richest country in the world and if we can afford to cut millions or billions of tax dollars for the wealthy, we can afford to cover all” in health care.
Another speaker, Lus Sosa, Milwaukee Area Technical College (MATC) educator from the American Federation of Teachers (AFT) Local 212 spoked about education and how important is education for democracy and recognized those gathered at the event as a coalition of different groups. Sosa stated, as a group, “together we rise, together we rise, together we rise. Trump picked Betsy DeVos as Secretary of U.S. Education and the reason he did it, is because he wants to undermine our democracy. As you know public education is essential to democracy and we need to make sure that all public schools are well funded.” Sosa urged those gathered at the event to vote on Tuesday and every election forthcoming to make a difference. “We need to vote for champions for public education,” Sosa said. Sosa publicly endorsed Dr. Tony Baez for the Milwaukee Public School Board 6th District and Larry Miller for the Milwaukee Public School Board 5th District on the April 4th Spring Election.
One of the organizers, Juan who claimed that he was an undocumented immigrant spoke about immigrant rights and against Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke Jr.’s decision to join 287g ICE Program, which allows designated sheriff deputies to enforce federal immigration laws. Jorge also told the crowd to stand up against Trump’s White nationalists and neo-Nazi agenda in the U.S.
After the rally, the protesters against Trump marched to U.S. Senator Johnson’s office at the federal courthouse where various speakers from the Muslim community spoke as well as from the group PODER.
Currently, Trump is calling for 10,000 additional ICE agents to be hired and mass deportations will also include non-criminal illegal aliens that could target at least 8M undocumented immigrants in the U.S.
Also, the Mexican Consulate in Milwaukee reported that Mexican nationals are seeking dual citizenship for the their U.S. born children just in case, the parents get deported and their children can also accompany them to Mexico, so the children can be allowed to stay in Mexico as well.

Silvano Aureoles Conejo, Governor From Michoacán Abruptly Ends Interview Over Corruption And Impunity Of State Attorney General

The State of Michoacán continues with the same state of affairs and no effective plan to restore security, jobs and economic stability as promised by Governor Aureoles Conejo during his campaign for the governorship.

By H. Nelson Goodson
Hispanic News Network U.S.A.

February 16, 2017

Chicago, Illinois – On Wednesday, Silvano Aureoles Conejo, the Governor of Michoacán was in Chicago to make a presentation about the State of Michoacán at the Casa Michoacán and to engage in a dialogue with immigrants from the state residing in the Chicago area. Governor Aureoles Conejo told those Mexican nationals from the State of Michoacán that he is working to provide legal assistance for those trying to get legal status and for their rights to be respected by U.S. officials under a 10 point plan by his state government.
During a brief planned interview after the event by Raúl Ventura Ortíz from Radio Latina 5.0, Governor Aureoles Conejo became upset when he was asked about a lack of an economic and security stability plan in the state and why was he protecting or doing nothing about allegations that the Michoacán State Presecutor José Martín Godoy Castro was associated with organized crime. Governor Aureoles Conejo responded that Ventura Ortiz had misinformation provided by criminals and that he needed psychological help, which Ventura Ortiz responded that he actually had factual information. Governor Aureoles Conejo became uneasy about being questioned for his lack of installing an economic and security stability plan as he promised during his campaign before getting elected as governor, but after 16 months in office, he lacks any workable and sustainable economic plan for Michoacán.
Governor Aureoles Conejo also attempted to disrupt a video live recording being transmitted by members from Radio Latina about the interview, which has gone viral on social media.
According to Ventura Ortiz who is originally from Michoacán, the State of Michoacán is actually worst today with a proliferation of crime, drug cartels, narco-state government, murders and corruption that is plaguing the state government under Governor Aureoles Conejo. Governor Aureoles Conejo is touring the U.S. and trying to promote a positive outlook for Michoacán that is working for Mexican nationals from the state who continue to send money to families. Michoacán Mexican nationals from the U.S. send about $1,750M of money transfers to the state, which the State of Michoacán collects 25% to help offset the poverty index in the state.
But Ventura Ortiz says, the State of Michoacán is worst today with more than 54% of the poverty rate of the population under Governor Aureoles Conejo who has failed to implement an economic and security plan as promised.
