Why the U.S. Must Not Ignore Violence Against Indigenous Women | NowThis

‘Is this the message that we should pass down to our youth?’ — One of the first Native American congresswomen Deb Haaland refuses to let the violence against Indigenous women be overlooked any longer.

In US news, the first Indigenous congresswoman Rep. Deb Haaland called for more resources to end violence against Indigenous women.

Debra Haaland, (D-NM) Congresswoman: ‘In 2016 it was reported that 8 in 10 Native women had survived serious violence during their lifetimes. 50% have suffered sexual violence and 90 percent of these cases have involved a non-native perpetrator. I appreciate the recent work that tribal governments have done to shed light on the silent crisis of gender violence and violence against women, that have gone overlooked in Indian country for far too long. Most of all I thank the Native women who have endured generations of systematic violence, who are ten times more likely to be murdered, and 4 times more likely to be sexually assaulted when compared to the national average.

Further exacerbating this issue the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights ‘Broken Promises’ report states that crime and victimization in Indian country is caused by the systematic underfunding of tribal law enforcement and criminal justice systems coupled with pre existing barriers. In communities with the nation’s highest rates of crime that are comparable to dense urban cities like Detroit and Los Angeles. I’m building on legislation like Savannah’s act and Vanua to provide our women with programmatic resources that will expand to urban areas where many Native Americans are frequently overlooked in this silent crisis. My work will also provide resources to families of missing women.

Part of of redefining who we are starts at home. Last week at the University of New Mexico, the first major public discussion of Pueblo feminism took place during the 20th Annual American Indian Studies Association conference. During a panel, students described the presence of women and two spirit people in modern tribal governance. One of the female students said quote, I am never going to be a governor or hold a leadership position in my tribe, because these are only positions reserved for males. This is probably why Deb Haaland ran for Congress, because she knew she couldn’t have political power within our existing system, unquote. I asked, is this the message that we should pass down to our youth?

Some tribes continue to practice a European tradition of patriarchal governments that refuse to allow women a seat at the table. As another one of these bright young women said, ‘we are survivors of colonialism, but we don’t have to continue to live in it.’ To the students who organized this discussion to shed light on the issue. Thank you for your bravery and your strength. Your leadership is what keeps me moving forward. I see you, and I hear you.’

How the Trump Administration Is Using the 2020 Census Against Immigrants | Opinions | NowThis

The Trump administration wants to add a citizenship question to the 2020 Census. This lawyer is fighting tooth and nail to stop them.
» Subscribe to NowThis: http://go.nowth.is/News_Subscribe

The Trump admin is trying to sneak a question on citizenship into the 2020 census.

Secretary Wilbur Ross announced that a citizenship question would be added to the census in March 2018.

At the time he told the public and Congress that the Department of Justice requested this change so that it could use census data to help enforce the Voting Rights Act.

ROSS: We are responding solely to the Department of Justice’s request, not to any campaign request, not to any other political party.

Over the course of this lawsuit, we have found that those statements were just false. When the record was finally released to plaintiffs, it became clear that it was Ross who led the charge to add the citizenship question to the Census – and he then actively pushed the Department of Justice to sign on to the request.

We also learned that some of the chief proponents of the administration’s anti-immigrant policies, like Steve Bannon and Kris Kobach, were involved in lobbying for the addition of the citizenship question. Kobach’s involvement is particularly notable because he served as the vice chairman of Trump’s voter fraud commission.

FOX NEWS: President Trump today ordered the creation of a new commission to investigate the possibility of voter fraud in the last election. He has said repeatedly since then he would have won the popular vote if it weren’t for widespread and undetected fraud.

And because he has, for years, falsely claimed that voter fraud is rampant in the United States.

KOBACH: About 3 million people are registered in more than one state. It’s no crime to be registered in more than one state, but it is a crime if you actually try to vote in two states, and every year, thousands of people do vote in more than one state –
NEIL: But not 3 million. Not millions.

We filed one of several lawsuits challenging Secretary Ross’s decision in June of 2018 on behalf of a number of immigrant rights organizations in this case.

Trump Goes Off Script While Declaring National Emergency for Border Wall | NowThis

President Trump declared a national emergency to fund his border wall — but, true to form, he didn’t stick to the script.
» Subscribe to NowThis: http://go.nowth.is/News_Subscribe

In breaking news, President Donald Trump has declared a national emergency around illegal immigration in order to get border wall funding and build the wall. Previously President Trump had put the U.S. into a government shutdown for border security, but now there is a Donald Trump national emergency. Mitch McConnell supports this President Donald Trump wall effort and the national emergency. 2019 has already been a tumultuous year for Trump. If you’d like the national emergency explained, this Trump press conference might not help considering how far off script Trump goes. Democrats will surely do everything they can to block the Donald Trump border wall.

Trump Makes Horrific False Claims About Babies at Rally | NowThis

Trump’s latest false claim about an abortion law is not just grotesque, it’s dangerous.
» Subscribe to NowThis: http://go.nowth.is/News_Subscribe

President Donald Trump is spreading a grotesque abortion claim — it’s 100% false. Trump said the following at the same Trump rally that saw a BBC cameraman attacked by a Trump supporter:

President Trump: “Democrats are also pushing extreme ‘late-term abortion.’ Allowing children to be ripped from their mother’s womb right up until the moment of birth. What’s that all about? …So in Virginia, the governor… The governor stated that he would even allow a newborn baby to come out in to the world and wrap the baby, and make the baby comfortable, and then talk to the mother and talk to the father, and then execute the baby. Execute the baby.”

This is blatantly false. There is no such thing as abortion ‘right up until’ birth. Only 1.3% of all abortions happen after 21 weeks. And then almost always because the mother’s health is at risk or the fetus is not viable

The Virginia legislation allows for a determination by one doctor, not three to allow for an abortion in the third trimester if the birth threatens the mother’s physical or mental health.

In addition to falsely characterizing the Virginia legislation, Trump supported the GOP health care bill that would have made it harder for children with special needs to access care, especially Medicaid.

How Teachers Get by in Denver and Why They’re Striking | NowThis

This 8th grade teacher is one of more than 2,6000 educators on strike in Denver — here’s why her fight isn’t just for the teachers, but also for the students.
» Subscribe to NowThis: http://go.nowth.is/News_Subscribe

In Denver public schools news, this 8th grade teacher in Denver says she’s not making a livable wage.

Melea Mayen: I have never spoken to a single person in my life who has said oh you want to be a teacher, that’s a good idea. Not a single person has looked me in the face and said that’s a good idea. Most people say, “oh good for you.” Or like, ‘oh wow I couldn’t do that. Every time I talk to my mom she’s like my heart breaks for you every day. I don’t know how you could do this because we are their social workers. We are their psychologists, we are their friends, their confidants. I teach so many students who have experienced real trauma and I bring that home with me. It affects my life. Not a single person says like oh you’re a teacher. I’m so jealous. A lot of people go into careers and maybe wanted to be teachers but no it’s not an affordable lifestyle. And we’re doing this for our students so that we can be better teachers. I can make so much money doing something else and then I just think about my students and how much I love watching them learn.

28-year-old Melea Mayen is a social studies teacher in Denver she is one of more than 2,600 educators joining the Denver teacher strike asking the Denver public schools system for liveable salaries. The teacher strike in Denver is being carried out by the denver classroom teachers association and comes on the heels of teachers’ strike in Los Angeles.

Melea: There has been a huge movement of people recognizing that if we want to see a change in this country it’s our time, it’s our turn. You have to stand up and say something, you have to do something. Why are we still having this conversation. It’s been going on for hundreds of years. Frederick Douglass spoke about how teachers should never let anyone make them feel that they are not of the highest value. I think teachers are fed up. 14:08 If the United States is going to get it together it starts with education. It is so essential to have an educated population for a functioning republic a functioning democracy and our teachers are the first people who know that.

Mayen explains that higher wages won’t just help out teachers they’ll make schools better for students.

Melea: Who are you trusting your children with? Don’t you want the best educator you can have with your child? Teaching your child? A lot of teachers are leaving and Denver is hiring new teachers all the time and what that does is it has a huge impact on our students. Right now the turnover rate in Denver’s between 20 and 30 percent a year. We hire a thousand new teachers on average a school year which is just unheard of. My school has already seen almost a 50 percent turnover rate this school year. And most of those teachers were first and second year teachers. So what we need is better pay to keep teachers in this system so that you can have experts in the field of teaching teaching our children.

Some of the teachers striking in Denver say they’ve been criticized for leaving their classrooms. But a few days is a small price to pay for a better education system.

In US news, President Donald Trump and former democratic Senate candidate from Texas Beto O’Rourke held opposing rallies in El Paso Texas on the same night. Beto ORourke famously lost to Ted Cruz in Texas senate race during the 2018 midterm elections. While Trump and O’Rourke both addressed immigration and immigrants at their El Paso rally events, they couldn’t have been farther apart on the message. At the Trump rally, President Trump argued that we need more border security and the only way to do it was to build the wall. Trump railed against illegal immigration and a migrant caravan. In the Beto ORourke speech across town, O’Rourke explained that this city was safe long before the El Paso wall, he stood up for DREAMers, and stood against ICE and CBP.

Ruben Garcia, Executive Director Annunciation House: We’re here this morning to talk about the criminalization of refugees, of taking individuals and families like those you see here at the table and behind standing, and converting them into criminals for no other reason than to politicize, for political advantage. The countless refugees who come in who are portrayed as somehow being a danger, being a criminal, being a threat to our communities here in the United States, and, what you discover is that you all need to understand is all of the adults, all of them, have been processed by border patrol, CBP, and part of that process is to be fingerprinted, and to have the fingerprints run through the various databases—the FBI database, the DHS database, the immigration database, the Interpol database—to see if there’s any reason to believe that they constitute a danger, a threat to any of our communities. If truth be told, the people who are here with us right now, in fact, are a greater, they are of greater security to us than you the members of the media that are here. It would be interesting to see what would happen if all of you were fingerprinted and run through all the databases to see if something might not kick back out. With them, nothing. 340 individuals are going to be released to us, all of whom are as secure and safe, all of whom have fled from the country.

Immigrant mother: I came to this country with my family because of the incredible insecurity in our country. We’re here for an opportunity and we want to see if it’s possible, because in our country, there are no opportunities. The criminality in our country is very high. There’s no security for our children. That’s why we took our children, with just the clothes on their backs, and leave the country. And we thank God that we’re here alive, even though we had a long journey with a lot of difficulties. /// I’m a mother, and I don’t know if people look at me, and think ‘criminal.’ I just want to protect and save my family.

In one of the most controversial White House decisions, President Trump instituted a transgender military ban, effectively barring transgender troops from serving in the Unites States military. This Trump military ban was met with hostility from trans rights activists, the LGBTQ community, veterans, and active duty service members alike. Trans veterans and trans active duty service members are now speaking out against the Trump administration and Trumps transgender military ban. They argue how this negatively impacts the United States military and is an assault on their human rights. The Supreme Court recently allowed the transgender military ban to go into effect. President Donald Trump has won this one, but only temporarily.
