DACA END IS NEAR?:
MS. MONY RUIZ-VELASCO (second from left on stage) told the participants to the emergency rally held Tuesday (Aug. 8) that U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen has delayed the announcement of his decision Aug. 8 to accept more materials on the legal arguments until Monday, Aug. 13, before he makes a ruling on the preliminary injunction hearing that could end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. The immigration lawyer and board president of the Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights (ICIRR) told DACA beneficiaries to renew their DACA cards to extend their eligibility for another two years. At her right is Illinois State Sen. Don Harmon (D-Oak Park-IL), co-sponsor of the Immigration Safe Zones Act, SB 35, that seeks to extend protection over immigrants who often live in fear due to ruthless enforcement tactics used by immigration agencies in sensitive locations, including schools, hospitals and courtrooms, where U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents arrest undocumented immigrants. Senator Harmon pressed rallyists to urge Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner to sign the bill. (JGL Photo by JOSEPH G. LARIOSA)

RELIVES "PEOPLE POWER":
MS. CHRIS ALDANA, a Filipino-Australian born in Vietnam and member of Pilipino American Unity for Progress, Inc. (UNIPRO), said despite Filipinos fleeing from a tyrant, when they come to the U.S., they are still treated as “dog eaters, savages and less than them, less than human. … and they tell us to teach our children to think white and act white and make white lies and white smiles; our expensive degrees will sell us all the way out; our citizenship means shit when we go off our ship; our white collars will not protect our brown necks.” She spoke during an emergency rally Tuesday (Aug. 8) in front of the Illinois Governor’s office at the Thompson Building in Downtown Chicago.

CHICAGO (JGL) – I was seated on 20B passenger seat of American Airline Flight AA325 35 minutes into the flight at about 9:40 a.m. Central Time on Monday (Oct. 19) for my flight from La Guardia international airport in New York city bound for O’Hare International airport in Chicago, Illinois when I heard a commotion.
When I turned around and looked down the aisle, I saw a woman, who turned out to be a doctor, trying to rouse up a woman who seemed to have a seizure and was staring blank while lying down on her back on the aisle between seats Nos. 22C and 22D.
Failing to wake up after a few minutes, the woman prompted the flight stewardess to alert the pilot in the cockpit on her medical condition.
The pilot, in turn, announced that because of the “medical emergency,” the plane was making an emergency landing at Cleveland, Ohio Airport.
The Good Samaritan was seated on seat 21C, in front of the fallen elderly lady.
Just as soon as the fallen elderly lady was helped back on her seat on 22C, the lady’s eyes started to stare blank again, prompting the woman-doctor to massage the torso of the elderly woman again for a few minutes. And the lady’s eyes seemed responsive again and had managed to follow commands.
As soon as the plane landed at Cleveland airport, paramedics boarded the plane and applied emergency aids before wheeling the woman out of the plane. An elderly man, who appeared to be her husband, followed the elderly woman on wheelchair out of the plane.
The emergency triggered flight delays for many other flights for almost two hours.
A flight crew asked this passenger not to make public any video footage taken of the emergency to prevent “violation of privacy rights.”
I came from Newark, New Jersey to listen to the presentation of Financial Advisor of Transamerica in Burlingame, California, Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, Inc. (FINRA) Broker-Dealer and Executive Vice Chair Chito M. Roxas of World Financial Group (WFG), who spoke before a hundred marketing directors, associates and guests during the BPM (bring people to the meeting) held at Ramada Plaza Hotel in Newark on Oct. 17 at the invitation of Ms. Nanie Fandino, senior marketing director of WFG in Newark.
When I emerged from the tube, I was greeted by my old friend, former Illinois state Sen. Darin LaHood, son of President Obama’s former Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood. Mr. Darin LaHood was elected last month U.S. Congressman in Illinois’ 18th District in Peoria, replacing GOP Illinois Rep. Aaron Schock, who resigned last March following the controversy over his office’s spending habits. Damaging allegations against Schock continued right up to his resignation.
Representative LaHood is a member of the Natural Resources, Science, Space and Technology committees in the U.S. House of Representatives. (email@example.com)
