Uniting migrant, LGBTQ and HIV struggles

first_imgWhen most people read the phrase “AIDS crisis,” they likely envision a period of the 1980s and early 1990s when AIDS was a mysterious and terrifying disease, when gay, trans people and people of color all over the planet were dying of neglect, lack of treatment and little to no public understanding.When many activists and followers of the HIV prevention movement read the phrase, they don’t just think of the past, but of the present.The truth is that the crisis never truly went away. Eventually, as treatments emerged, the suffering began to alleviate and deaths were less frequent, AIDS receded from the public eye. However, people still die of untreated AIDS, and most of them are Black and Brown, Indigenous, trans and gender nonconforming, sex workers, people without jobs, without homes, without public platforms, who come and go unseen and unheard. What’s more, the stakes may be higher now than they have been in decades.It was recently reported that the Trump administration has been reallocating federal funds intended for the Ryan White HIV/AIDS program to the same Department of Homeland Security agencies responsible for separating families at the U.S.-Mexico border and detaining any and all migrants they choose, indefinitely and with impunity.‘Trumpcare makes HIV AIDS again’The slogan “Trumpcare makes HIV AIDS again” has arisen in response. Its message is true, but it is not just Trump and his cabinet of CEOs that are responsible for the now-heightening crisis.Simultaneously, Gilead Sciences is holding hostage the patent for PrEP — the most advanced treatment yet for HIV/AIDS — and threatening a price increase of 250 times the manufacturing cost. This tactic is used by corporations to prevent the manufacturing of cheaper alternatives to their product. To Gilead Sciences, it is simply not profitable enough for the lives of HIV patients to be saved; they have to be the ones doing the saving, and doing it only for those who can afford it.This reprehensible affront to the needs of the suffering cannot entirely be pinned on Gilead, either, for the company is just following the most basic rule of capitalist enterprise: Expand or die.Thankfully, the HIV prevention struggle persists. It has now reached a critical juncture, at the heart of not only the LGBTQ liberation struggle but also the migrant struggle.During this year’s LGBTQ Pride season, protests across the country demanded justice for Roxana Hernández, an HIV-positive trans woman from Honduras. Hernández undertook a treacherous journey with the Caravan of Refugees, up through Central America and Mexico, to seek refuge in the United States. She contracted HIV while in Honduras after being sexually assaulted by a gang of men. Hernández stated her reason for seeking asylum in the U.S. quite simply: “They kill trans people in Honduras.”Tragically, they kill trans people here, too.Upon reaching the U.S.-Mexico border in May, Hernández applied for asylum with U.S. Customs and Border Protection. Subsequently, she was forcibly confined in holding cells called “ice boxes,” where she endured extreme cold, was denied adequate food and water, and had nothing but a concrete bench to sleep on.These conditions, notably reminiscent of those in Nazi concentration camps and the harshest forms of solitary confinement, exacerbated Hernández’s AIDS symptoms and complications. When she requested medical attention, guards yelled at her and joked about her appearance. After more than a week of diarrhea and vomiting, she was finally admitted to a hospital. She died of complications from AIDS on May 25 after a long and valiant struggle.The CBP has said that holding cells are only intended to house detainees for 12 hours. Roxana was detained for five days before finally being transferred to a private Immigration and Customs Enforcement prison. HIV prevention and human rights activists agree that it is not only cruel, but medically negligent to hold an HIV-positive person in an “ice box” for any period of time.To date, no officer of any agency has been indicted in Roxana Hernández’s murder by neglect.Sixth to die in ICE custodyHernández was the sixth person to die in ICE custody since October. She was not the first trans woman to suffer such a fate. After Victoria Arellano died of an AIDS-related infection after being refused medication in a men’s im/migrant detention center, her fellow detainees were divided up and relegated to solitary confinement so they could not share her story.That was in 2007. Why didn’t people shut down the streets for Arellano back then?It is only recently, due to the spotlight shone on ICE and other Homeland Security agencies by migrant activists due to their practice of family separation, that stories like Hernández’s and Arellano’s are gaining widespread acknowledgment.However, this doesn’t come as a surprise to those paying attention to the struggle. In June 2015, in a truly iconic move, trans, Latina and migrant activist Jennicet Gutiérrez interrupted then-President Barack Obama during a White House dinner on LGBTQ issues to bring attention to the conditions faced by migrants like Arellano being held in DHS detention. She was escorted out to the approval of many attendees, particularly cis gay white men.This action and its fallout highlighted the vast political divide between the moderate, liberal forces in the LGBTQ movement and the forces advocating for LGBTQ liberation, including the abolition of police, prisons and capitalism itself. Now that criticism of ICE is increasingly “en vogue,” moderate forces are more likely to accept the necessity of raising these issues, but even then still failing to provide real political leadership about them. So a class-based divide remains and the struggle in the streets continues.These many interrelated cases demonstrate that the only way forward is through building solidarity among the migrant struggle, the LGBTQ struggle and the movement for HIV prevention, and through achieving class consciousness that allows us to see that all these struggles are vital for complete liberation from capitalism and patriarchy. The resolution of this united struggle is socialist revolution.In socialist Cuba, where trans women hold seats in local government, where current President Miguel Díaz-Canel was an early advocate for furthering LGBTQ rights, and where tremendous medical advances have made Cuba the first country in the world to completely eliminate mother-to-child transmission of HIV, we have a brilliant example to strive for in our own struggles for liberation.The history of how LGBTQ liberation was championed in Cuba is documented by the late, great transgender activist Leslie Feinberg in “Rainbow Solidarity: In Defense of Cuba,” a collection of articles from hir column “Lavender and Red” published in this paper.Let us never forget the battles that we have fought, the lessons that we have learned and the perspective that we have gained. It is because of the nature of capitalism that the suffering of migrants, LGBTQ and HIV-positive people continues. It is up to the revolutionaries of all genders, sexualities and nationalities to unite, act up and fight back.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Football’s comeback effort falls just short in Norman

first_imgprintAfter trailing 21-0 in the second quarter, TCU football went on a 24-7 run, falling just short of an upset against No. 8 Oklahoma in Norman.“You’ve got to give Oklahoma credit,” head coach GaryPatterson said.  “They’re a good footballteam, but I was very proud of our team.”Oklahoma quarterback Jalen Hurts scored four touchdowns against TCU. Photo by Jack WallaceThe Frogs had a chance to win the game with 3:16remaining, but first-year quarterback Max Duggan threw his first interceptionof the game to end any chance at a victory.“We lost by four points against a very, very, verygood team,” right guard David Bolisomi said. “Every loss is tough.  It justhurts that we were right there.”Duggan finished with just 65 yards passing to go withthe pick, though he did gain 103 yards and a score with his legs.Quarterback Max Duggan gained 103 yard on the ground against the Sooners. Photo by Jack WallaceOklahoma quarterback Jalen Hurts finished with fourtotal touchdowns, with two coming in the air and two via the ground.The first half started about as poorly as possible forTCU.  The Frogs punted on each of their firstfour, gaining just 17 yards in the process.Meanwhile, Oklahoma, the nation’s number one offense,scored touchdowns on each of their first three drives.  Before TCU knew what was happening, they weredown 21-0 with 12:56 left in the first half, and the game looked out of hand.“It’s probably just trying to het back in formationsand see how they are going to come at us,” linebacker Garrett Wallow said aboutfixing the slow start.  “Every game wehave to come out faster if we’re going to be successful.”But for a team that had scored in 333 consecutive games(2nd-longest active streak in NCAA), getting shut out is not anoption.  After the Frogs finally forced the Sooners to punt, first-yearquarterback Max Duggan exploded on a 59-yard run to put TCU deep in Oklahomaterritory.  Two plays later, running backSewo Olonilua took a direct snap and dove across the goal line to give theFrogs life.The TCU defense would stop Oklahoma on their finalthree drives of the first half, the second of which came via a forced fumble bysafety Trevon Moehrig.The turnover resulted in a 24-yard field goal by kickerJonathon Song to pull the Frogs within 11 before the half.TCU came out swinging in the second half.  After the defense forced a turnover on downs,the Frogs went 49 yards in six plays, scoring on an 11-yard run by Duggan onwhich the quarterback was carried into the endzone by his linemen.Hurts responded with a strong touchdown run of hisown, putting Oklahoma back up by 11 just three minutes later.In the opening minutes of the fourth quarter, the Soonersgot all the way down to the TCU seven yard line, looking to put the game out ofthe Frogs’ reach.For the second week in a row, safety Vernon Scott madea play when it mattered.  The seniorstepped in front of Hurts’ pass and returned it 98 yards for a touchdown withjust 12:43 left to play.Safety Vernon Scott (26) returns an interception 98 yards for a touchdown against Oklahoma. Photo by Jack WallaceThe pick was just the second of Scott’s career and thefirst he has taken for a score.Drama would continue to ensue, as on Oklahoma’s nextdrive, first-year safety Nook Bradford ripped the ball out of Hurts’ hands togive TCU the ball right back.“Takeaways are huge for us, and they bring a lot ofenergy to us and our sideline,” Wallow said. “It hypes up both sides of the ball.”The Frogs would fail to capitalize though, puntingafter a three-and-out.The TCU defense wasn’t done though. The Frogs stopped theSooners on fourth down on their next drive to get the ball back again, thistime with 3:16 remaining.The Frogs’ comeback attempt was cut short though, asDuggan’s interception on fourth down gave the Sooners the ball back with 1:41left.It appeared that TCU then stopped Oklahoma on 3rd-and-1,but upon review, the Sooners were granted a first down to put the nails in the coffinfor the Frogs.“On the TV version, it was [short],” Patterson said aboutthe play.  “It was a poor decision ontheir part.”Oklahoma’s CeeDee Lamb and TCU’s Jalen Reagor, consideredto be two of the best receivers in the Big 12, combined for just three catchesand 25 receiving yards.  Lamb did add ascore.Bradford finished with a career-high 13 tackles to go withthe forced fumble in the contest.  Wallow(15) and safety Ar’Darius Washington (14) also finished with double-digittackles for TCU.With their backs against the wall, the Frogs will haveto beat West Virginia next week to reach bowl eligibility.

FHFA Updates Timeline for Purchase of Qualified Loans in Forbearance

Related Articles The FHFA approved an extension of its temporary policy allowing the acquisition of certain single-family mortgages in forbearance that satisfy Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac-established eligibility requirements. The extension of the policy applies to loans originated through August 31, 2020.A joint effort of the CFPB and FHFA, the Borrower Protection Program was instituted earlier in the year in order to ensure “borrowers are protected during the coronavirus national emergency and facilitate related information sharing.” FHFA shares “aggregated data on loans that enter forbearance before delivery to the Enterprises” with the CFPB.Thanks for the data sharing, the FHFA will be positioned to meet its obligations under the so-called “QM Patch.” It’s an assurance that loans sold to the Enterprises are complying with the intent of Dodd-Frank’s ability to repay provisions.Extending the Enterprises’ ability to purchase these previously ineligible loans will help provide liquidity to mortgage markets, suggested Director Mark Calabria. “That said, to make homeownership sustainable, lenders have a responsibility to ensure that borrowers can make their monthly mortgage payment,” he continued.Not long after closing on their single-family loan and preceding the lender’s ability to deliver the mortgage loan to the Enterprises, some borrowers have pursued payment forbearance in the midst of the pandemic. Typically, under Enterprise requirements, mortgage loans in forbearance or delinquency fail to qualify for delivery.A temporary policy, forging the way for delivery for certain single-family mortgages in forbearance, was announced on April by the FHFA. As a result of the extension, this policy for loans originated through August 30 of this year remains in place. Additionally, eligibility loans will remain priced to mitigate the accentuated loss potential to the Enterprises stemming from these loans. The fulfillment of the Enterprises’ charter requirements to purchase loans exclusively that satisfy the purchase standards imposed by private, institutional mortgage investors are ensured by the prudential measures.Meanwhile, as needed, FHFA still will keep tabs on the coronavirus’ impact on renters, borrowers, and the mortgage market and update policies.

A single judge bench comprising of Justice Pratibha M Singh observed that until and unless there is a finality of the criminal proceedings, either by means of a discharge or acquittal of the accused or due to complete sentence having been undergone, surrender of such a person cannot be effected. The Court also held that the grant of bail or the permission to travel abroad in pending cases or FIRs would not be covered by the phrase “discharged, whether by acquittal or on expiration of his sentence or otherwise” under sec. 31(1)(d) of the Extradition Act, 1962. “For e.g., discharge by the trial court under Section 227 of the CrPC., the allowing of a mercy petition conclusively discharging the accused, the grant of a pardon, or any other relief where the criminal proceedings against the accused are concluded/terminated, and a final decision has been rendered, which would no longer require the accused’s presence in India. Mere temporary release on bail would not be sufficient.” The bench observed. The petitioner, who is currently lodged in the Tihar Central Jail, had sought directions on the Union of India to take steps to expedite his extradition to his homeland Bulgaria. He had been in jail for the offence of distributing narcotics substances to Bulgaria. The Central government had asked Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate to enquire into a request made by Ministry of Justice, Government of Bulgaria, through the diplomatic channels, requesting his extradition. The ACMM was tasked to determine whether a prima facie case for extradition is made out against him in accordance with the Extradition Act and the Extradition Treaty between India and Bulgaria. The ACMM vide order dated 6th November 2020 recommended his extradition. However, it was the grievance of the petitioner that despite the said order, he was still confined in prison. During the course of proceedings, the Union of India had raised objection for his extradition by stating that three FIRs, unconcerned with the offence concerning extradition proceedings, were pending against him in Goa. It was the case of the petitioner that he had been granted bail in all the three FIRs and was even given the permission to travel abroad in two of the cases. In view of this, it was argued that sec. 31(1)(d) of the Act would not be an impediment in the implementation of his extradition as the phrase “or otherwise” would include the grant of bail. Considering the submissions, the Court while analyzing the Extradition Treaty between India and Bulgaria along with sec. 31(1)(d) of the Act, observed thus: “A perusal of Section 31(1)(d) of the Act shows that there are two situations that are contemplated within this provision where the fugitive is not to be surrendered by the Union of India. First, if the person is accused of an offence, which is not the offence in respect of which he is sought to be extradited, and secondly if the person is convicted of an offence in India. In either of these cases, until and unless there is a finality to the said criminal proceedings, either by means of a discharge of the accused – by acquittal or due to the complete sentence having been undergone, the surrender cannot be processed. The phrase “or otherwise” appears as a subset of the word discharge, and hence the same would have to be interpreted ejusdem generis and would only be deemed to mean any other form of discharge, which has a finality attached to it” Touching upon the concept of extradition, the Court observed that:”Extradition, in no way, means or involves releasing an accused fugitive into freedom and granting them liberty, but rather merely involves handing over the accused from the police in one state, to another, for being tried for the offences that have been committed by the accused fugitive in the requesting state. The Court in extradition proceedings is, therefore, not concerned with the release of the person from jail, but rather is only concerned with the handing over of the person from one country to the another.” Applying the said observations in the case, the Court held that the pendency of all the three FIRs makes it clear that the said proceedings are not concluded against the petitioner as he had not been conclusively discharged. Moreover, the Court also went ahead to observe that: “An order of bail or an order permitting him to travel abroad would not constitute ‘discharge’ under Section 31(1)(d), and the said prohibition would therefore be applicable.” “Accordingly, this court is of the opinion that in view of the above position, the request of the Petitioner- accused, for an expedited surrender and extradition, cannot be allowed, until the Petitioner continues to be an accused in the three FIRs lodged against him in Goa, India, and the said cases are pending before the domestic fora.” The Court observed while dismissing the petition.

Letter: Tompkins County must set limits on airport customs enforcement

first_imgAlthough we do not question the willingness of the Legislature when it provides assurances that any Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) or Border Patrol immigration enforcement presence would cause the county to terminate the agreement, we think that the county must be more explicit in its commitment. This part of the MOA’s language needs to be categorically defined so as to clearly address the important concerns we have raised about how the present language is, in essence, an open invitation for federal authorities under the proven-oppressive Homeland Security to increase their presence in this county. We think these concerns are justified in general but are particularly relevant given the current uncertain climate of immigration-related detentions, deportations, and family separations, and should not be so easily dismissed under the pretext of being a component of the Legislature’s promises for future action. Moreover, the assertion (gathered from consulting with airport directors in other places nationwide) that there is no real interaction between ICE and CBP officers at airports is not accurate or credible. We need more concrete terms and understanding of procedural practices. TERMINATION OF AGREEMENT At the forum, we shared that when we began to look at this issue back at the end of 2018, it was hard to get specific answers from the Tompkins County Legislature as to the next steps in the process of approving Phase III of the expansion project (i.e. the construction of the 5,000 square foot Customs and Border Protection – CBP facility). Phase III is the last phase of the project and will cost $5 million, out of a $27.6 million airport expansion. The facility is NOT for commercial international aviation but to serve private businesses and chartered flights. We have requested information as to when the Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) between Department of Homeland Security/CBP and Tompkins County would be signed and have made it clear we do not think that the language of the boiler-plate MOA shared with us by airport director Mike Hall was reassuring. In our opinion, it leaves too many loopholes for potential abuse by CBP. For instance, there is language in it that suggests that CBP would invite outside personnel “for internal control verifications, special enforcement activities, and training, etc., as may be necessary.” County officials say that the MOA as-is gives the Legislature a degree of control because there is a provision at the end of the MOA about terminating the agreement for any reason within 90 days. We also proposed the addition of a Community Monitoring/Legal Observer position to this project, for assurance of compliance. The TCIRC Working Group awaits a response that is sensitive to the urgency of these issues. This agreement may be terminated by either party upon 120 (NOTE: not 90?) days written notice for any reason. “Tompkins County will withdraw from this agreement if any of these specific conditions are met, though not exclusively these:a) CBP Customs Enforcement stationed at Ithaca Airport conducts immigration enforcement activities outside of the facility;b) CBP Customs Enforcement stationed at Ithaca Airport harasses or discriminates any individual in the facility;c) ICE or Border Patrol agents conduct immigration enforcement at the Ithaca Airport Customs facility;d) CBP Customs Enforcement coordinates in any way with ICE or Border Patrol agents for the purpose of immigration enforcement either within or outside the facility;e) It is determined that data collection activities by CBP are being used to put individuals at risk.” While many of us believe the airport expansion poses a threat to the safety and protection of immigrants, many of our supporters and/or the Legislature’s constituents object to this project for other or additional reasons. People oppose the project for environmental reasons. We continue to ask, as we did at the forum, who will benefit? From what we know so far the main beneficiaries appear to be Cornell’s corporate arm and corporations, some with disturbing connections to cyber-surveillance. Relatedly, why are so few individuals empowered to make such a huge local decision without a well-publicized forum for public questions and comments? ITHACA, N.Y. — The Tompkins County Immigrant Rights Coalition Working Group and other community groups organized a public forum on March 25 at the Tompkins County Public Library to express our concerns about the many worrisome implications of the airport expansion project now underway. For these reasons, we have proposed the following amendment to this passage in the final page of the boiler-plate MOA shared with us: (amendments in bold) – Tompkins County Immigrant Rights Coalition Working Group Read the MOA template airport director Mike Hall shared with TCIRC-WG: UFA MOA Template by Devon Magliozzi on Scribd We see this project as an integral part of broader local government’s planning and development concerns, especially giveaway tax relief for developers of luxury housing and upscale businesses. It is only right to challenge those projects that exclude the public in decision-making and that enhance the benefits of a few at the expense of the many, including those most vulnerable among us.
