Premier Starts Process To Avoid Health Sector Disruptions

first_imgPREMIER’S OFFICE-Premier Starts Process To Avoid Health Sector Disruptions The province will introduce legislation this fall for a fair and impartial system to prevent service disruptions in the health care and related sectors, Premier Rodney MacDonald announced today, May 15. “Nova Scotians deserve to be protected from disruptions to health care, just as health-care workers deserve an effective system for collective bargaining,” Premier MacDonald said. “A system of arbitration is our preferred option at this time. However, if a truly compelling alternative comes to our attention, we will give it serious consideration. “Collective agreements will continue to be negotiated, but we need a fair process to enable health-care workers and their employers to resolve disputes if negotiations reach an impasse. We cannot close the doors of our health system any more than we can do without the services of police or firefighters.” The premier has asked Environment and Labour Minister Mark Parent to oversee a dialogue with Nova Scotians and stakeholders from acute-care facilities, long-term-care facilities, homes for special care, and ambulance services. The objective is to help develop a fair, impartial and independent alternative to strikes or lockouts when collective bargaining reaches an impasse. “We also want to draw on the best practices of other health-care systems as we design a made-in-Nova Scotia solution,” said the premier. Nova Scotia is one of only two provinces in Canada where the right to strike or lockout in the health sector is the same as in private industry. Nova Scotia will have a new process designed to avoid a work stoppage like the recent one at the IWK Health Centre that resulted in the cancellation of services. “I believe our current system of resolving impasses in this sector has failed all of us — workers, management, and the public,” said Premier MacDonald. “Our government is committed to a system that is fair to both health-sector employees and Nova Scotians who expect and deserve health care.”last_img read more

Kerala as dear to me as Varanasi says Modi in Guruvayur

first_imgGuruvayur (Ker): Having won a massive mandate, Prime Minister Narendra Modi Saturday said political parties and pundits failed to gauge the public mood ahead of the Lok Sabha election and thanked the electorate for reposing confidence in the saffron party. In his first public engagement after leading the BJP to a grand victory in the general election, retaining power for a successive term, Modi said he made Kerala his first stop after the win despite having no MP from the state since it was as dear to him as his constituency Varanasi in Uttar Pradesh. Also Read – Dussehra with a ‘green’ twist Terming the just concluded Lok Sabha election to 542 seats as a “festival of democracy,” Modi lauded and thanked the electorate of Kerala for their contribution to it. The country has seen that “people are God” in elections, he said. “Political parties and political pundits could not gauge people’s mood. So did those involved in conducting (poll) surveys. But people gave a strong mandate for the BJP,” he said and thanked the voters for choosing his party. Also Read – India receives its first Rafale fighter jet from France The recent polls proved that people rejected “negativity” and accepted positivity, he said. On making Kerala his first stop post the LS polls win, Modi said some would have even wondered why he chose the southern state despite BJP “not opening its account” from here in the Parliament. But an elected leader was common to all, he said. “Elections have their place in democracy and it is the responsibility of the winner to take care of 130 crore people. Those who made us win or those who did not, both are our (people). Kerala is as dear to me as Varanasi is,” Modi said. The BJP was not working for mere electoral politics and was keen on building the country and ensuring India gets its place of pride in the international arena, Modi added. On the Nipah virus issue, he said the Centre was working “shoulder-to-shoulder” with the Kerala government to provide all required assistance.last_img read more

UNs Iraq envoy pledges full support for constitutional review process

During talks with the Chair of the Constitutional Review Committee, Humam Hamoudi, and Deputy Chair Ayad al-Samaraie, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s Special Representative, Ashraf Qazi, reiterated his earlier commendation of the panel’s work “and the professional and constructive problem-solving approach it adopted,” according to a news release from the UN Assistance Mission in Iraq (UNAMI). Mr. Qazi reaffirmed the UN’s willingness to continue assisting the Committee in reviewing outstanding technical issues, drawing on its international experience and knowledge of best practice in comparable situations, UNAMI said. The envoy also emphasized that the UN is firmly committed to assisting in the implementation of the constitution and any approved amendments, noting that its technical and advisory role is always carried out at the request of the Government. The Committee has already advanced proposals on the distribution of powers and in principle on the national collection and fair sharing of oil revenues, UNAMI said in a news release at the weekend. Issues still meriting consideration relate to Iraq’s federal architecture and to the Constitution’s Human Rights Chapter. The Committee is working to forge an agreement that can be put to the Iraqi people for their endorsement.In another development, the UN Monitoring, Verification and Inspection Commission (UNMOVIC) has published a 1,000-page plus Compendium of Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction (WMD) programmes, with the exception of the nuclear programme, on its website.Work on the lengthy document began in late 2004 and the Compendium details the country’s chemical and biological warfare programmes and associated delivery systems as known to UN inspectors.The Compendium also gives describes UN efforts to map and verify the true extent and nature of Iraq’s activities.UNMOVIC, established by a December 1999 Security Council resolution, inherited from the UN Special Commission (UNSCOM) the task of verifying Iraq’s compliance with its obligation to renounce WMD. 28 June 2007The senior United Nations envoy to Iraq today pledged the world body’s full support for the country’s constitutional review process. read more

OSU flexes muscles at Friday Night Lights

Ohio State 2018 quarterback target Emory Jones (center) participates in drills with current Buckeye quarterback Joe Burrow watching. Credit: Jacob Myers | Assist. Sports EditorIn its fifth season as a staple in the summer recruiting period for Ohio State football, Friday Night Lights hosted and showcased an abundance of high school talent from across the nation in front of fans, coaches, former and current players, and media.It had been more than three months since the annual spring game, which means Buckeye fans everywhere salivated at any glimpse of football they could get.Currently boasting the No. 1 ranked class in 2017, OSU put on an all-out blitz for some of the nation’s prized recruits.The recruiting spectacle that took place in Ohio Stadium on Friday night was designed from the brain trust of coach Urban Meyer and director of player personnel Mark Pantoni. When the two put together the event’s inauguration in 2012, the amount of talent present in 2016 inside the ‘Shoe on a random Friday night in July is what Pantoni and Meyer envisioned from the start.ImpressionsThis was the first opportunity many fans got a chance to see Buckeye commits in action, including 2017 quarterbacks Danny Clark and No. 1 dual-threat quarterback Tate Martell. 2018 four-star quarterback target Emory Jones also showed off his talent and has been drawing some serious interest from the OSU staff since Jones said the Buckeyes were his front-runner in June. Martell has dominated the media covering recruiting since his commitment on June 12, but Clark, who has been committed since his freshman season, was sharp all night. Clark told reporters after the event that he came to Columbus to “prove I’m the best quarterback in the 2017 class.” The class of 2017 quarterbacks could be a battle to watch, especially with current Buckeye freshman Dwayne Haskins Jr. and redshirt freshman Joe Burrow already in the mix. OSU has also been recruiting wide receivers heavily for 2017, and rightfully so. Five-star wideouts Donovan Peoples-Jones, Trevon Grimes and Tyjon Lindsey all have OSU high on their lists of schools they’re interested in. Peoples-Jones was not in attendance, and Grimes did not participate and hung out alongside Meyer all night, but Lindsey shined all five stars on Friday night. At times, it seemed like Lindsey was the only person in a drill because his combination of immaculate speed and shiftiness allowed him consistently to create five yards between him and the defender.However, Lindsey arguably wasn’t the most impressive at FNL. 2017 four-star receiver Jaylen Harris displayed great hands showing the ability to catch the ball with contact, and plus-quickness with his size of 6-foot-5, 210 pounds.Harris took a nasty fall during a rep where he went up to catch the ball and landed hard on his face and right shoulder. He was surrounded by medical staff for a few minutes before walking to a cart on his own where he was taken to be evaluated. Harris owns a Buckeye offer.Along with Lindsey and Harris performing well, the quarterbacks mentioned before showed inconsistency with throws but had plenty of highlights that pleased the small crowd.Commitment WatchOSU tallied two commitments in 2015 from current freshman tight end Luke Farrell and 2017 kicker Blake Haubeil. On Friday, the catch was a little greater as to be expected with a large pool of talent.Four-star defensive end Chase Young committed to the Buckeyes at FNL making that No. 15 for the class of 2017. Young is ranked as the third best weak-side defensive end in his class. Young said that he believes he is the best in his class.Four-star running back Brian Snead also made a pledge to Meyer’s program, becoming the first to do so for the 2018 recruiting class. On Saturday, defensive back Amir Riep from Colerain High School in Cincinnati announced his decision to play for the Buckeyes. Riep attended FNL but did not participate, and it appears it made quite the impact on him.A couple dates to keep an eye on in the future will be Aug. 22 and Aug. 24 when Lindsey and Grimes announce their decisions, respectively. read more

Opinion While Columbus Crew shows strength in defense midfield must regroup for

Columbus Crew midfielder Ethan Finlay dribbles past Chicago Fire goalie Sean Johnson during a game against the Fire May 24 at Crew Stadium in Columbus. The Crew won, 2-0.Credit: Courtesy of Crew Communications / Kirby HinesThe Major League Soccer regular season is far from done but the Columbus Crew are facing the rapid approach of crunch time, and they know it.The Crew, winless since May 24 and seventh in the Eastern Conference, have to figure out a way to make gritty gameplay translate to valuable standings points if they want to be postseason contenders this year.Crew defender and captain Michael Parkhurst said Wednesday — after a disheartening last-minute 2-1 loss to defending MLS Cup champions Sporting Kansas City — his team needs to focus now in its pursuit of being in playoff contention come October.“Obviously, it’s down,” Parkhurst said of the team’s confidence following the dramatic defeat to Sporting KC (9-5-5). “You know, it’s been a tough stretch. It’s been a long time since we won an MLS game and it’s taken its toll.”The Crew is slated to face a reeling squad in the Montreal Impact (3-9-5) when the Canadian franchise comes to town this weekend, and Columbus needs its offense to find a spark as the defense continues to work to limit chances.Parkhurst and his backline played well Wednesday despite the loss, repelling eight of first-place Kansas City’s 10 shots.The defensive corps featured Costa Rican natives Waylon Francis and Giancarlo Gonzalez in their first MLS action in more than two months after both were called up for their national team’s FIFA World Cup run to the quarterfinals.The duo had not played alongside Parkhurst since a 1-0 home loss to the Vancouver Whitecaps May 10, but the aggressive presence of Chad Barson at right helped relieve a lot of pressure in the middle in the Costa Ricans’ first game back.Barson made life nightmarish along the left flank for Sporting forward Soony Saad, who was replaced by substitute Kevin Ellis in the 57th minute.Barson allowed neither player much leeway and limited their touches with an up-close style of contesting possession. Francis was then free to nudge inward and help midfielders Tony Tchani and Bernardo Anor cover space along the left side of Kansas City’s attacking half.Sporting forward Dominic Dwyer, the team’s leading goal-scorer, therefore got the full brunt of world-class double coverage by Parkhurst and Gonzalez in the center and was a non-factor in the game because of it.Dwyer was ruled offside three times and took no shots.“I thought they did a good job on Dom Dwyer, he’s a handful,” Crew coach Gregg Berhalter said in a postgame press conference. “The backline I think performed pretty well. They haven’t been playing together in two months. So again, a little bit of rust in their communication, their movements and buildup but it’s fine.“I think they did a good job.”This performance could be a good indication that this Crew defense is for real, since Dwyer scored a goal just four minutes into Sporting’s July 12 match against the same Impact team Columbus is set to take on Saturday.Unfortunately for the Crew, the newly reunited defense getting definitively beaten on just two Kansas City plays in nearly 95 minutes of total match time proved two times too many against the league’s fourth-highest scoring offense.Sporting midfielder Benny Feilhaber notched an assist and his second score of the year, making him the difference in Wednesday’s game. His corner kick led to a headed goal by Sporting forward C.J. Sapong in the 42nd minute and he scored the game-winner from open space in the 93rd minute to break the hearts of Columbus fans.In a match that included the drama of two red cards and an own goal by Kansas City defender Igor de Carvalho Juliao to equalize the game for the Crew, an extraordinary conclusion seemed to fit the occasion.“It’s incredibly frustrating and disappointing, obviously, with the late goal there,” Crew midfielder Ethan Finlay said after the game. “I don’t think we would have been honestly satisfied with a tie tonight, but we definitely didn’t earn the win.”Finlay will need to step up Saturday if the Crew want to come away with three points. He has been a consistent threat in the attacking half for the Black and Gold this season but he can’t do it alone against Montreal.With forward Jairo Arrieta out of the lineup due to a hamstring injury sustained July 12 against the New York Red Bulls, and with starting forward Federico Higuain “not 100 percent fit” in Berhalter’s estimation, the onus looks to fall on utility players like Finlay and Anor to generate offense.It’s also worth noting that talented midfielder Wil Trapp — usually a crucial distributor of the service ball to a streaking Finlay or a healthy Higuain — is out for Saturday’s matchup after his red card Wednesday earned him a one-game suspension.So Finlay, who has played both as a forward and a midfielder this season, now has to use his speed and soft footwork to give the Crew an attacking presence more than ever.If Finlay slots as a right wing midfielder Saturday and is aided by left-side counterpart Anor, any transition opportunities they can create against Montreal figure to be the ticket to glory. The Crew struggled to get anything substantive going in the midfield offensively against Kansas City, but Finlay and Anor have the skill sets to change that Saturday.“He’s able to play outside mid, he’s able to play left back. He’s a strong guy in the air so those are things he was able to bring to tonight’s game,” Finlay said of Anor’s performance Wednesday as a second-half substitute. “(Anor) is very versatile and I think, you know, going forward … I think it’ll be good. He’s a huge part of this team.”Barson also figures to be a vital contributor on both sides of the ball against Montreal.His ability to traverse the pitch from end line to end line will be a boon in Columbus’ favor on Saturday, just as it was Wednesday when his skillful cross in the box resulted in the Sporting own goal that equalized the game.“It’ll be another test. Montreal’s not in great form either,” Parkhurst said. “It’s a team we’re going to battle with for the playoffs, so we need to recharge the tanks and we need to be ready because we need to win that game.”Kickoff is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Saturday at Crew Stadium. read more

Les phénomènes de météo extrême liés à des perturbations des courants atmosphériques

first_imgLes phénomènes de météo extrême liés à des perturbations des courants atmosphériques Selon des climatologues, les événements de météo extrêmes sont dus à une perturbation des courants atmosphériques provoquée par le réchauffement climatique.Les catastrophes et les phénomènes météorologiques se sont accumulés ces dernières années, qu’il s’agisse de sécheresses, d’inondations (au Pakistan en 2011) ou encore des vagues de chaleur (canicules de 2010 en Russie et de 2011 aux États-Unis) et de froid. Or, selon des climatologues qui publient leur étude dans les Annales de l’Académie américaine des sciences (PNAS), ces phénomènes dévastateurs résulteraient tous de la même perturbation des courants atmosphériques autour du globe. À lire aussiDengue : symptômes, traitement, prévention, où en est-on ?A l’origine de cette perturbation : le réchauffement climatique résultant des émissions de gaz à effet de serre, lui-même provenant des activités humaines. “Une partie importante de la circulation de l’air dans les latitudes moyennes de la Terre prend normalement la forme de vagues se déplaçant autour du globe, oscillant entre les régions tropicales et arctiques”, explique Vladimir Petoukhov, principal auteur de cette recherche cité par l’AFP. “Quand ces vagues oscillent vers le haut elles aspirent l’air chaud des tropiques vers l’Europe et la Russie ou les États-Unis, et quand elles oscillent vers le bas elles produisent le même phénomène mais avec des masses d’air froid de l’Arctique”.Toutefois, “nous avons découvert, durant plusieurs de ces récents phénomènes météorologiques extrêmes, que ces vagues atmosphériques sont restées figées dans leur mouvement pendant plusieurs semaines”, précise le scientifique. En effet, les continents se réchauffent et se refroidissent plus vite que les océans, contribuant aussi à la stagnation des vagues d’air. De plus, du fait que le réchauffement n’est pas uniforme, les différences de températures influent sur la circulation de ces masses d’air.Des périodes prolongées de froid ou de chaud “Ces deux facteurs sont cruciaux pour le mécanisme que nous avons détecté, qui provoque des périodes prolongées de chaleur ou de froid”, a ajouté Vladimir Petoukhov. Or, si deux ou trois jours avec une température de 30 degrés Celsius n’est pas un problème, vingt jours ou davantage créent un stress important pour de nombreux écosystèmes et des agglomérations urbaines qui ne sont pas adaptées à de telles vagues de chaleur prolongées, souligne-t-il, en citant une mortalité accrue, des incendies de forêts et des pertes pour les cultures.

New Stuyahok teen learns Yupik Inupiaq Russian and Tagalog fluently by high

first_imgJalen Konukpeok, 18, learned four languages fluently before graduating Mt. Edgecumbe High School in May. (Avery Lill/ KDLG)Most students take classes in a second language during high school, but one Bristol Bay polyglot took it to another level. Jalen Konukpeok, an 18-year-old from New Stuyahok learned four languages fluently before graduating from Mt. Edgecumbe High School in May.Listen nowKonukpeok is Russian Orthodox, and his faith is a key factor behind his drive to learn languages.“I’ve always been inspired by St. Innocent, apostle to America. He was one of the first missionaries to come to Alaska, and he provided a written language for most of the people in Alaska,” Konukpeok said.English is his first language. Yup’ik is his second, which his grandmother taught him when he was four years old. At eight years old, he began to learn Russian to better understand the Russian Orthodox liturgy and teachings. By a mix of school classes, conversation with friends and practice with the computer program Rosetta Stone, Konukpeok has become fluent in Yup’ik, Russian, Inupiaq and Tagalog. He has also learned some Mandarin, Tlingit, Alutiiq, Unangam, Romanian and Greek.While Konukpeok mostly puts these languages to use at church and among friends and family, he has also utilized them more publicly. Konukpeok was the Bristol Bay area youth representative for the First Alaskans Institute in 2015. That year he had the chance to use the Alaska Native languages he is learning at the Elders and Youth Conference and the AFN Annual Convention.Over the years, Konukpeok has developed daily habits to help him maintain vocabulary and fluency.“I try to speak it every day. I have different friends of different nationalities. I speak to them through text every day. It keeps the language there,” Konukpeok said.This fall he is attending the University of Alaska Anchorage to study either small business administration or accounting. For him, learning languages is a way of connecting. As he meets more people of diverse backgrounds in his new community, Konukpeok is looking forward to putting the language skills he has cultivated to work.last_img read more

Demonetisation is the biggest scam in Indias history says Kapil Sibal

first_img Close Congress leader Kapil Sibal released a video on Tuesday, claiming that a ‘currency exchange’ was run by the ruling BJP after Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced demonetisation in November 2016. High-denomination banknotes of Rs 500 and Rs 1,000, which made up 86 percent of all cash in circulation at the time, was immediately withdrawn after the PM’s announcement.”Demonetisation is the biggest scam in the history of India. It is sad that our agencies will investigate the opposition, but not those in power,” Sibal said during a press conference in New Delhi.According to NDTV, Sibal highlighted that the currency exchange was conducted by a team of 26 officials from various departments of the central government. The detailed logistics was allegedly “controlled by” Bharatiya Janata Party chief Amit Shah. “Under it, currency from various ministers and business houses were brought in planes to Hindon air base from where it was taken to the Reserve Bank – at a charge of 35 to 40 per cent,” the NDTV report said.Rahul Retharekar also explains how Reliance Jio database was misused to show repetitive currency exchange transactions in RBI. He confirms that new currency with Urjit Patel signatures was actually printed 6 months earlier: @KapilSibal— Congress Live (@INCIndiaLive) April 9, 2019Sibal also claimed that PM Modi had started his tenure by fooling the people of India and is ending his five-year tenure by “traumatising the people of India”. “He has used institutions to target people who oppose him,” the senior Congress leader added. People queue up in front of an ATM kiosks in Chennai on Nov. 11, 2016.IANSIt was recently reported that the RBI has stopped printing Rs 2,000 notes. It was reported that the government wants to gradually reduce the circulation of this high denomination. According to The Print, the step would not mean that the Rs 2,000 notes in circulation will become invalid. However, the government wants to slowly phase out the currency note. The government has taken this decision with a suspicion that the high-denomination banknote is being used for hoarding, tax evasion and money laundering.

What Constitutional Rights Do Undocumented Immigrants Have

first_img Share REUTERS/Joshua Roberts/File Photo/Via PBS NewsHourFILE PHOTO: Light from the setting sun shines on the Supreme Court in Washington, DC, U.S., January 20, 2018.On Sunday, President Donald Trump tweeted that undocumented immigrants should be immediately returned “from where they came” with “no Judges or Court Cases.”This, along with the administration’s “zero-tolerance” immigration policy and the recent surge in family separations at the border — a practice President Donald Trump ended through executive order — has called attention to the legal rights of immigrants under U.S. law.What rights do undocumented immigrants have to a court hearing, to an attorney or to free speech? What rights do their children have to education?To answer those questions, we must start with a more basic question–does the U.S. Constitution apply to undocumented immigrants?“Yes, without question,” said Cristina Rodriguez, a professor at Yale Law School. “Most of the provisions of the Constitution apply on the basis of personhood and jurisdiction in the United States.”Many parts of the Constitution use the term “people” or “person” rather than “citizen.” Rodriguez said those laws apply to everyone physically on U.S. soil, whether or not they are a citizen.As a result, many of the basic rights, such as the freedom of religion and speech, the right to due process and equal protection under the law apply to citizens and noncitizens. How those rights play out in practice is more complex.Right to due processWhat the law says: The Fifth Amendment states that “no person … shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law.”The issue of due process is at the heart of many immigration cases, including Reno v. Flores, the 1993 Supreme Court case that has returned to the spotlight with the surgee in family separations. The case led to an agreement requiring the government to release children to their parents, a relative or a licensed program within 20 days.In the ruling, Justice Antonin Scalia wrote “it is well established that the Fifth Amendment entitles aliens to due process of law in deportation proceedings.”How it works in practice: Immigrants have the right to due process. But in reality, says, Andrew Arthur, a resident fellow in law and policy at the conservative Center for Immigration Studies, “courts of law run the gamut.”In some cases, immigrants are not granted a hearing at all. When asked about the president’s tweet, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders pointed to the process of “expedited removal,” which was created by the Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act of 1996.“Just because you don’t see a judge doesn’t mean you aren’t receiving due process,” Sanders said.Under the expedited removal process, immigrants who have been in the country illegally for less than two years and are apprehended within 100 miles of the border can be deported almost immediately without going through a court hearing.The exception is asylum seekers, who must be granted a hearing.Those who are not processed through expedited removal have the right to due process in an immigration court, where the main goal is to decide whether a person has a legal claim to remain in the U.S.“In immigration court, you have very few rights,” said John Gihon, an immigration attorney who spent six years as a prosecutor for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement before moving into private practice.Gihon says the bar for what constitutes evidence is lax in immigration court. Documents do not have to be authenticated, and hearsay, a statement made by someone outside of the court, as opposed to on the witness stand, counts as admissible evidence. Hearsay is not allowed in most U.S. courts.“In the majority of cases, it’s a lock solid 100 percent guaranteed conviction because there is little defense, and most would confess they crossed the border illegally,” Gihon said.The right to legal counselWhat the law says: The Sixth Amendment states that “In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall…have the assistance of counsel for his defense.”The Supreme Court ruled in the 1963 case Gideon v Wainwright that if a person is too poor to hire an attorney, the government must appoint one.How it works in practice: Because most deportation proceedings are civil rather than criminal cases, the right to legal counsel often doesn’t apply.The Trump administration’s zero-tolerance policy now requires most illegal border crossings to be tried as criminal cases, the exception being parents who cross the border illegally with children. After public outcry about separating families, the head of Customs and Border Protection said Monday the agency has stopped referring parents for prosecution. Other immigrants will still be charged with a crime.Under the law, anyone facing a criminal charge has the right to counsel. However, the government is only required to provide counsel if the person is accused of a felony. Crossing the border illegally is a misdemeanor.In recent weeks, people have donated millions of dollars to nonprofit groups to pay for immigrants’ legal fees.The Trump administration’s decision to criminally charge immigrants has overwhelmed the courts, as demonstrated last month by a leaked photo of a trial in Pecos, Texas.The image shows dozens of men in orange jumpsuits being tried en masse. In such proceedings, reports the Intercept, which originally published the photo, trials can last only minutes per defendant.The right to be with your familyWhat the law says: Critics of family separation have pointed to the legal right to “family integrity.” This right is not spelled out in the Constitution but was established through court rulings in the early 20th century, Rodriguez said.“People have a right to be with and commune with their family. It’s a very basic principle,” she said.The government can split up families in extraordinary circumstances, such as in the case of child abuse, but it cannot do so without going through a legal process.How it works in practice: Before Trump signed the executive order Wednesday, the administration had divided families as a matter of course, without considering the individual cases. The ACLU sued, arguing the policy was unconstitutional.The court has not issued a final ruling, and the president’s executive order could change the case. But a judge did rule earlier this month that the case could proceed, saying immigrants have a right to “familial association” under the Constitution.Right to vote or hold officeWhat the law says: The Constitution does not prohibit anyone from voting. Instead, it spells out who cannot be denied the right to vote. The 14th Amendment says men who are U.S. citizens and over the age of 21 must be allowed to vote, unless they have committed a crime. The 15th Amendment prohibits anyone from denying the right to vote based on skin color and the 19th Amendment prohibits denying the right to vote based on sex (aka being a woman).It wasn’t until 1926 that all states passed laws barring noncitizens from voting. Congress passed a law 70 years later prohibiting illegal immigrants from voting “for the office of President, Vice President, Presidential elector, Member of the Senate, Member of the House of Representatives, Delegate from the District of Columbia, or Resident Commissioner.”How it works in practice: If you are not a U.S. citizen, voting in a federal election could land you in prison for up to three years or lead to deportation. States can impose their own, sometimes harsher, penalties for breaking the law.However, because elections are largely a local affair, some states allow local governments to decide whether noncitizens can vote in local elections.In fact, noncitizens in Chicago have been allowed to vote for school board since 1989. New Yorkers who were not citizens were given the same right from 1969 until 2003, when local school boards were abolished there. Now San Francisco and Maryland are also giving noncitizens the right to vote in some local elections.The right to educationWhat the law says: There is no “right to education” in the Constitution but two other sections do come into play when considering whether undocumented migrant children should have access to education.First, in the case Plyler v. Doe, the Supreme Court ruled that if children who are citizens have access to a free, public education, so should undocumented immigrant children. That is because the 14th Amendment says the government cannot “deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.”What it means in practice: The court case means undocumented children cannot be prohibited from enrolling in a public school.But what if a child is being detained and, therefore, does not have access to a public school. That is where, once again, the Flores settlement comes into play.The settlement requires that facilities where children are kept must meet minimum requirements for providing health care, education, recreation and other child care services.Right against unreasonable search and seizureWhat the law says: The Fourth Amendment establishes the right “against unreasonable searches and seizures.”What it means in practice: While this law would generally apply to both citizens and noncitizens, there is a key caveat known as the “border search exception.”This exception dates back to the very first Congress, which passed a law allowing searchers at the border as a means to collecting duties.As a result, courts have long upheld that searches at the border are not considered “unreasonable” for the very fact that they occur at the border.The question courts have grappled with since is what constitutes the border. Searches at airports and other ports of entry for example are often considered legal. The Justice Department has also established a 100-mile wide “extended border” where Border Patrol agents can conduct searches if they meet certain criteria.last_img read more
