Community : Immigration issues in the Latino Community
Posted by admin on 2005/10/30 18:00:00 (1374 reads)

Last Monday, October 24, 2005, the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Cincinnati organized a meeting to discuss the new McCain-Kennedy immigration bill proposal. Marc Evans, a local immigration attorney, gave the participants an overview of the proposal highlighting the most important issues. Marc was also kind enough to answer questions from the audience, which included representatives from various community organizations involved in work with Hispanics, as well as companies that employ Hispanics.

While the bill is not perfect, it represents a comprehensive approach to change the current immigration law.

It has been agreed that the next steps will involve meetings with Ohio representatives in US Senate and Congress.

The recent situation in Butler County clearly showed the need for this bill.

As many of us have read in the press (click here...), the Butler County is trying to introduced new state law that would allow them to deport any undocumented aliens back to their country of origin. This would impact especially the Hispanic community, since majority of the undocumented people are Latinos.

Resized Image Resized Image Resized Image

To get some clarification about the situation, the United Methodist Church in Hamilton, organized on Friday, Oct. 28, 2005, a Town Hall meeting with concerned community members. On site were also representatives from Hamilton Police, as well as Commissioner Michael Fox. The meeting was facilitated by Ruben Herrera, a consultant specializing in conflict management.

It was an excellent opportunity to raise community concerns, and give Commissioner Fox the opportunity to hear them first hand. Mr. Herrera did a great job in facilitating the dialog and in helping to articulate individual issues and to look for possible solutions.

One important message was from the Hamilton Police: they will NOT search for illegal aliens, because this is not their job. Immigration issues are under the Federal jurisdiction. So all the rumors about rounding up illegal aliens and deporting them are not true.

MidwestLatino will continue to monitor the situation and be engaged in a resolution process.

Artists exhibit installations in tradition of El Dia De Los Muertos

Resized Image

Cincinnati, OH - September, 28, 2005 – Approximately twenty-five area artists will exhibit works that draw upon the rich Latin American tradition of altars or "ofrendas" (literally offerings) to commemorate All Souls Day or El Dia De Los Muertos (The Day of the Dead). The exhibition will be held at The Mockbee, a non-profit organization funded in part by The City of Cincinnati, located at [/b]2260 Central Parkway, Cincinnati, Ohio[/b]. It is being organized by a group of artists and art supporters who are intrigued by the growing influence of Latin American art and expression in Cincinnati and its ability to enrich our culture. An opening reception for the artists will be held on Saturday, October 29, 2005 from 6:00 – 9:00 p.m. The exhibition continues through November 12, 2005.

Creating altars in homes and cemeteries featuring offerings (ofrendas) of favorite foods and objects important to the deceased are thought to entice departed loved ones to return and visit.

Community : Butler County initiative to deport undocumented workers
Posted by admin on 2005/10/28 15:50:00 (1776 reads)

Resized Image

Butler County is taking a tough stand on undocumented workers, trying to initiate a state law to keep them out of Ohio.

You can see the recent news coverage at our Discussion Forum.

MidwestLatino is working together with organizations like LULAC, Ohio Commission on Hispanic/Latino Affairs, "The Spanish Journal" and others, to initiate a dialog with the Butler County officials to find a more sensible approach to resolving the issue.

We believe that this issue needs a comprehensive solution and thus is better resolved at the Federal level. Therefore we support the McCain-Kennedy Bill proposal as a way to forge a realistic, comprehensive and bipartisan national immigration policy.

If you would like to be part of the dialog, please contact us at: Please also take part in the dialog on our Discussion Forum. Let us know your thoughts about the recent development in the Butler County.
