Objectives: Vitamin D deficiency (VDD) is common in immigrant children with increased skin pigmentation living in higher latitudes. We assessed the pattern of and risk factors for VDD in immigrant East African children living in Melbourne (latitude 37°49′ South).. Study design: A prospective survey of 232 East African children attending a clinic in Melbourne. Data were collected by questionnaire, medical assessment and laboratory tests.. Results: Low 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25-OHD) levels (,50 nmol/l) occurred in 87% of children, and VDD (25-OHD ,25 nmol/l) in 44%. Risk factors included age ,5 years, female gender, increased time in Australia, decreased daylight exposure and winter/spring season. Anaemia (20%), vitamin A deficiency (20%) and iron deficiency (19%) were also identified.. Conclusions: Asymptomatic VDD is common in East African immigrant children residing at a temperate latitude. Risk factors for VDD limit endogenous vitamin D production. Screening of immigrant children with ...
1 Only a few nonimmigrant classifications allow you to obtain permission work in this country without an employer having first filed a petition on your behalf. Such classifications include the nonimmigrant E-1, E-2, E-3 and TN classifications, as well as, in certain instances, the F-1 and M-1 student and J-1 exchange visitor classifications.. 2 The H-1C nonimmigrant classification expired on December 20, 2009.. 3 E and L dependent spouses may apply for employment authorization.. 4 Though the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) does not provide a specific nonimmigrant classification for dependents of Q-1 nonimmigrants, this does not preclude the spouse or child of a Q-1 from entering the U.S. in another nonimmigrant classification.. ...
Children of immigrants can benefit from attending prekindergarten, though they enroll less, on average, than children with US-born parents. This detailed report draws on interviews conducted with over 40 prekindergarten directors and staff, directors of early childhood education programs, and other specialists to present strategies for improving prekindergarten enrollment among immigrant families and English Language Learners. This includes strategies for outreach to support prekindergarten enrollment; helping immigrant families overcome language, documentation, and other logistical barriers when enrolling their children in prekindergarten programs; and building trust and good relationships with immigrant parents and designing immigrant- and ELL-friendly programs ...
The "residual method" is widely used to estimate the illegal immigrant population of the US. With this method, the known number of legally documented immigrants to the United States is subtracted from the reported U.S. Census number of self-proclaimed foreign-born people (based on immigration records and adjusted by projections of deaths and out-migration) to obtain the total, illegal immigrant (residual) population.[11] This methodology is used by the US Department of Homeland Security,[12] the Pew Hispanic Center, the Center for Immigration Studies,[13] and the U.S. Census Bureau. Since illegal immigrants have many reasons for not answering the U.S. Census correctly and since penalties for answering the U.S. Census incorrectly are rarely enforced, it is accepted that it under-counts the number of illegal immigrants. The users of this methodology assume that 10% of illegal immigrants are not counted by census takers.[13] The 10% assumption is based on a 2001 University of California survey ...
Abstract We conducted cross-country comparisons of Canada and the U.S., and assessed the extent to which access to care varies by nativity status overall, as well as in conjunction with race/ethnicity and socioeconomic status. Data came from the Joint Canada-U.S. Survey of Health (n.6,620 non-elderly adults). Access measures included having a regular medical doctor, consultation with a health professional in the past year, dentist visit in the past year, Pap test in the past three years, and any unmet health care needs in the past year. Logistic regression was employed to estimate the relative odds of access to care, adjusting for potential confounders. Disparities in access to care based on nativity status overall, as well as nativity-by-race joint effects, were found in both countries. There was also a dose-response effect of education on access to care among the native-born but not among the foreign-born; there were few nativity-by-income joint effects.. ...

Background and purpose: Our purpose was to study the association between country of birth and incident epilepsy in second-generation immigrants in Sweden. Methods: The study population included all children (n = 4 023 149) aged up to 18 years in Sweden. Epilepsy was defined as at least one registered diagnosis of epilepsy in the National Patient Register. The incidence of epilepsy, using individuals with Swedish-born parents as referents, was assessed by Cox regression, expressed in hazard ratios (HRs) and 95% confidence interval (95% CI). All models were stratified by sex and adjusted for age, geographical residence in Sweden, educational level, marital status, neighbourhood socioeconomic status and comorbid conditions, also using data from the Total Population Register. Results: A total of 26 310 individuals had a registered epilepsy event, i.e. 6.5/1000 (6.6/1000 amongst boys and 6.3/1000 amongst girls). After adjustment, the risk of epilepsy was lower than in children of Swedish-born ...
Downloadable! The utilization and reward of the human capital of immigrants in the labor market of the host country has been studied extensively. In the Swedish context this question is of great policy relevance due to the high levels of refugee migration and inflow of tied movers. Using Swedish register data covering the period 2001-2008, we analyze the incidence and wage effects of overeducation among non-Western immigrants. We also analyze whether there is state-dependence in overeducation and extend the immigrant educational mismatch literature by investigating whether this is a more severe problem among immigrants than among natives. In line with previous research we find that the incidence of overeducation is higher among immigrants and the return to overeducation is lower indicating that immigrants lose more from being overeducated. We find a high degree of state-dependence in overeducation both among natives and immigrants, but to a higher extent among immigrants.

Children of Immigrants Longitudinal Study (CILS) was designed to study the adaptation process of the immigrant second generation which is defined broadly as United States-born children with at least one foreign-born parent or children born abroad but brought at an early age to the United States. The original survey was conducted with large samples of second-generation immigrant children attending the 8th and 9th grades in public and private schools in the metropolitan areas of Miami/Ft. Lauderdale in Florida and San Diego, California. Conducted in 1992, the first survey had the purpose of ascertaining baseline information on immigrant families, childrens demographic characteristics, language use, self-identities, and academic attainment. The total sample size was 5,262. Respondents came from 77 different nationalities, although the sample reflects the most sizable immigrant nationalities in each area. Three years later, corresponding to the time in which respondents were about to graduate from ...

Session presented on Thursday, July 21, 2016: Purpose: This study examined the nature of health status disparities between immigrant and non-immigrant adolescents and the influence of gender. Methods: A cross-sectional study was conducted at several public health high schools where surveys were collected on 10th grade students (n=612). Comparisons between immigrant and non-immigrants adolescents, as well as comparisons by gender were made to examine the dependent variable health status. Analyses included cluster analysis and logistic regression models. Significance was declared at p,0.05. SAS version 9.3 was used. Results: Bivariate results indicate that of the four adolescent groups (male immigrants, female immigrants, male non-immigrants and female non-immigrants), excellent health status was reported least by male adolescent immigrants (p,0.05). Patterns of health behaviors varied among the four groups. Female immigrants compared to three other groups of adolescents (i.e., male immigrants, ...
Background-Immigrants from ethnic minority groups represent an increasing proportion of the population in many high-income countries but little is known about the causes and amount of variation between various immigrant groups in the incidence of major cardiovascular events. Methods and Results-We conducted the Cardiovascular Health in Ambulatory Care Research Team (CANHEART) Immigrant study, a big data initiative, linking information from Citizenship and Immigration Canadas Permanent Resident database to nine population-based health databases. A cohort of 824 662 first-generation immigrants aged 30 to 74 as of January 2002 from eight major ethnic groups and 201 countries of birth who immigrated to Ontario, Canada between 1985 and 2000 were compared to a reference group of 5.2 million long-term residents. The overall 10-year age-standardized incidence of major cardiovascular events was 30% lower among immigrants compared with long-term residents. East Asian immigrants (predominantly ethnic ...
South Asian populations are the largest visible minority group in Canada; however, there is very little information on the mental health of these populations. The objective of this study was to determine the prevalence rates and characteristics of mental health outcomes for South Asian first-generation immigrant and second-generation Canadian-born populations. The Canadian Community Health Survey (CCHS) 2011 was used to calculate the estimated prevalence rates of the following mental health outcomes: mood disorders, anxiety disorders, fair-poor self-perceived mental health status, and extremely stressful life stress. The characteristics associated with these four mental health outcomes were determined through multivariate logistic regression analysis of merged CCHS 2007-2011 data. South Asian Canadian-born (3.5%, 95% CI 3.4-3.6%) and South Asian immigrant populations (3.5%, 95% CI 3.5-3.5%) did not vary significantly in estimated prevalence rates of mood disorders. However, South Asian immigrants
Major findings indicate that both illegal and legal female immigrants often avoid CAs health care system due to fear of retribution in terms of immigration status and naturalization process SAN FRANCISCO, April 18, 2001 ---A sampling of health care providers across California shows that many low-income pregnant immigrant women in the state are still reluctant to seek free medical care despite government assurances their immigration status will not be affected. "There is almost a climate of fear and suspicion among immigrants," Grace J. Yoo, assistant professor of Asian American Studies at S.F. State. "They dont seek preventative care and pregnant women dont get prenatal care. Many times they seek medical care only when it is an emergency." Added Yoo: "There seems to be a sense among many immigrants that the political system is decidedly anti-immigrant." Due to the complex nature of immigration laws, many immigrants have long-standing fears that they or family members will be deported if they ...

Chagas disease is endemic to the Americas, infecting between 16-18 million individuals. In immigrant populations in the United States from endemic areas, it is estimated up to 4.9% may be asymptomatic carriers of Trypanosoma cruzi, the organism which causes Chagas disease. Between 10-20% of these patients progress to development of end-stage cardiomyopathy with a high associated morbidity. Following acute disease, patients enter into an indeterminate phase which can last 10-20 years. The earliest sign of cardiac involvement usually is electrocardiogram abnormalities. The most common abnormality is right bundle branch block (RBBB), followed by left anterior fascicular block (LAFB), and left bundle branch block (LBBB). Recent studies have shown that treatment of patients at this stage with antiparasitics may delay the progression of overt cardiomyopathy.. At the University of California, Los Angeles, there is a large population of immigrant patients from countries endemic to Chagas disease. The ...

Based on the preliminary research I conducted, I have been able to identify two key topic areas that are of interest to me and these include: immigrant women attaining jobs in Ontario and violence experienced by women in Canada. In regard to immigrant women attaining jobs, there are significantly higher unemployment rates and lower wages that they are faced with, in comparison to other immigrant men and Canadian-born men and women. The debate circulating around this issue seeks to answer whether gender, immigrant class, age, ethnicity and sexuality all play a role in an immigrant womans ability to be employed (TIEDI, 2010, p.1). Some key questions that have arisen focus on workplace policies and programs that create further disparity within the gender gap, rather than aiding immigrant women who have differing needs in the labour market. Questions posed, seek to find the contributing factors to lower wages and what can be changed in the regulations to create equity (TIEDI, 2010, p.6). As well, a ...
Background: The Agriculture, Forestry, and Fishery (AgFF) Sector workforce in the US is comprised primarily of Latino immigrants. Health care access for these workers is limited and increases health disparities.

One in four U.S. children - about 18 million children under age 18 - live with at least one immigrant parent. About 5 million children live with an unauthorized immigrant parent, and nearly 80 percent of these children are U.S. citizens; the other 13 million live with a parent who is foreign born but either a legal resident or a U.S. citizen.
It is well known that Hispanic immigrants exhibit better physical and mental health than their U.S.-born counterparts. Scholars theorize that stronger orientations toward the family, also known as familism, could contribute to this immigrant advantage. Yet, little work directly tests whether familial attitudes may be responsible for the favorable health of foreign-born

The growing number of immigrants living and working in America has become a controversial topic from classrooms to corporations and from kitchen tables to Capitol Hill. Many native-born Americans fear that competition from new arrivals will undermine the economic standing of low-skilled American workers, and that immigrants may not successfully integrate into the U.S. economy. In Color Lines, Country Lines, sociologist Lingxin Hao argues that the current influx of immigrants is changing Americas class structure, but not in the ways commonly believed. Drawing on 20 years of national survey data, Color Lines, Country Lines investigates how immigrants are faring as they try to accumulate enough wealth to join the American middle class, and how, in the process, they are transforming historic links between race and socioeconomic status. Hao finds that disparities in wealth among immigrants are large and growing, including disparities among immigrants of the same race or ethnicity. Cuban immigrants ...
The findings of our study provide important information on the public health services knowledge and utilization among immigrants in Greece. We found that 56.5% of participants had health insurance coverage, a proportion relatively small compared to the natives [13]. This may be explained by the fact that immigrants either are unemployed, informally employed or undocumented (but were reluctant to state so) and therefore not able to apply for health insurance. Other studies in different immigrant populations also showed that they themselves as well as their children had less frequently health insurance coverage in comparison to native populations [14-16]. Private insurance coverage is also rarer among immigrants than natives [17, 18]. Sixty-nine percent of immigrants reported good/very good health status, a proportion considered as satisfactory and explained by their young age. Previous studies conducted in Madrid [19], New York [20] and Amsterdam [21] confirm this finding. One possible ...
A study published in the Journal of the American Medical Associationfound that obesity rates among immigrants to the United States increase 11% after living in this country for 15 years. Study data were based on a 2000 national health survey of 32,374 participants, of whom 14% were immigrants. Although researchers made allowances for age-related weight gain, they found that the increases were higher than what could be expected from natural aging. Study authors point to advances in technology that make people more sedentary?remote controls, drivethrough fast food restaurants, as well as an increased availability of high-calorie foods. They were also able to find a link between obesity and the number of years spent in the United States among white, Hispanic, and Asian immigrant groups. The numbers of black immigrants were not high enough to be included in the study. The results pose a problem for immigrants who may experience language and cultural barriers to obtaining good health care. Physicians ...
Between 2003 and 2013, the US government deported 3.7 million immigrants to their home countries, over 90 percent of whom were unauthorized immigrants from Mexico or Central America. According to the most reliable estimates, parents of US-born children made up between one-fifth and one-quarter of this total. Prior research suggests that families and children experience significant emotional and financial hardship when a parent is deported ...
The Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act of 1996 (PRA) and the Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigration Responsibility Act of 1996 significantly reduced access to federal public benefits for most immigrants. However, these laws also expanded access to public benefits for some battered immigrants who had been ineligible for assistance. Some immigrants, including some battered immigrants, remain eligible for certain public benefits, and the PRA grants access to some federal benefits to "qualified aliens." With certain provisos, current law makes battered immigrants eligible for public benefits.. Download this article ...

BACKGROUND: WHO data shows that female immigrants in Europe attempt suicide at higher rates than native women and native and immigrant men. Empirical studies addressing attempted suicide of female immigrants of Caribbean (Antillean-Dutch and Creole-Surinamese-Dutch) as well as Cape Verdean descent in Europe are however scarce. We aim to increase knowledge about rates and risk factors of girls of Caribbean and Cape Verdean descent living in the Netherlands. METHODS: We conducted logistic regression on a dataset that consisted of self-reported health and well-being surveys filled out by 5611 female students, age 14-16, in Rotterdam, the Netherlands (Antillean Dutch N = 357, Creole-Surinamese-Dutch N = 130, and Cape Verdean-Dutch N = 402, and Dutch natives N = 4691 ...
The term first-generation may refer either to a person who has immigrated to a new country and been naturalized, or to the children of such an immigrant. The term second-generation consequently may refer to either the children or the grandchildren of such an immigrant. The term first-generation, as it pertains to a persons nationality or residency in a country, has two incompatible meanings: A native-born citizen or resident of a country whose parents are foreign born, or a foreign-born citizen whose parents immigrated when that person was very young, that is, the first native-born generation. A foreign born citizen or resident who has immigrated to a new country of residence, that is, the first generation to immigrate. This ambiguity is captured and corroborated in The Oxford English Dictionarys definition of "generation": ...designating a member of the first (or second, etc.) generation of a family to do something or live somewhere; spec. designating a naturalized immigrant or a descendant ...
Based on Bronfenbrenners Process-Person-Context-Time research model, this study explores individual factor effects of family context (i.e., parents acculturation), family processes (i.e., parental involvement and parent-child conflict), and adolescents individual characteristics (i.e., self-esteem and gender) on adolescent childrens SES achievement (i.e., highest education and annual income) in adulthood. In addition, this study explores the interplay effect of those family and individual factors on adolescents SES achievement in adulthood. Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) procedures were used because this study aims to test the conceptual model of Southeast Asian immigrant adolescents long-term SES achievement using the Children of Immigrant Longitudinal Study, a ten-year national panel data. The hypothesized relationships in the model include the followings: (a) positive effect of parents acculturation on parental involvement and on adolescents SES achievement in adulthood and ...

Some analysts have argued that this increase is driven by the fact that there are more immigrants living in the United States, and that immigrants are less likely than native-born people to have health insurance. While both of these facts are true (the share of the foreign-born population increased 1.2 percentage points from 2000 to 2006, and the share of immigrants without health insurance was 20 percentage points higher over this period than that of native-born people), these facts are not driving the overall decline in coverage. For one thing, the percent uninsured increased over this period at roughly the same rate among the native-born (up 1.8 percentage points) and immigrants (up 2.0 percentage points). Furthermore, if the percent of immigrants in the population had remained unchanged from 2000, the overall uninsured share still would have increased by 1.9 percentage points. Given that the actual increase was 2.1 percentage points, this means that only 0.2 percentage points (or less than ...
Non-white immigrants do vote overwhelmingly for Democrats and overwhelmingly favor expanding state involvement in the economy, relative to white people in America. This video also contains a cogent critique of Alex Nowrastehs attempts to rebut this argument. In short, Nowrasteh claims that immigrants do not vote markedly for expansion of government involvement in the economy, relative to native-born Americans, but he aggregates all "immigrants" into one homogeneous blob, and this leads him to draw highly misleading conclusions. When immigrants are disaggregated by race, noticeable differences begin to emerge between how, say, Hispanic immigrants vote and how white immigrants, or white native-born Americans vote. Nowrasteh also claims that immigrants completely assimilate to American culture within three generations and adopt views that are virtually indistinguishable from those of native-born Americans, but this is only true when one considers the entire aggregate of immigrants. When one ...

Introduction: The study of the effects of immigration on cancer patterns has become increasingly important for health disparities research in the U.S. While data on place of birth are routinely collected in the participating Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) registries, such data are missing for a large proportion of cases. Furthermore, the distribution of missing nativity data is non-random, and thus cannot be managed with simple strategies such as list-wise deletion. Here we present a multiple imputation (MI) strategy that uses variables in the SEER database to impute nativity status for Hispanic patients diagnosed with invasive cervix (CC), prostate (PC), and colorectal cancer (CRC) between 1988 and 2009. We focus on Hispanic patients, as they represent the largest immigrant group in the U.S.. Methods: We used the SAS MI procedure to generate nativity values (U.S.- vs. foreign-born) by the logistic regression imputation method. Among those with known nativity status, a model ...

Because we were attacked by a pair of immigrants, because those immigrants killed and maimed our people, because some other immigrants helped dispose of evidence that implicated the bombers, some people have used that atrocity to lump all immigrants in a pile, point to it as a problem. Some people have reduced the attack on us to some ridiculous, politically inspired rant against immigrants and welfare, because the immigrant family of the men who attacked us got welfare benefits. Really? Im as angry as anybody that a pair of brothers repaid this countrys generosity by spitting in our faces with bombs that murdered and maimed. But using that atrocity to score cheap, partisan political points is more than tawdry. It exploits a national tragedy, and local suffering, to the point that it dishonors the dead.
He thinks the media is "very dishonest" except he also meant every word of it.. Court documents reveal that chef Geoffrey Zakarian personally contacted the GOP nominee and asked him to retract his comments on immigrants, but he was rebuffed by Trump. Documents also reveal that Trumps daughter Ivanka is just as much of a ruthless vulture as her father is.. Suffice to say if Trump does not win in November we may find him living in Russia next year. No one in America will want to do business with him. Reports indicate that American banks have refused to do business with Trump for some time and Trump increasingly relies on foreign financing.. That may be why Trump puts his own interests and the interests of Russia ahead of our own. Seeking the presidency is a get-rich-quick scheme for Trump..

By Sarah Mawerere. Ministry of Internal Affairs has embarked on a vigorous crack down on immigrants who have entered and stayed in the country illegally.. Head of Inspection and Investigation in the ministry Mr Simon Mundeyi revealed that most of the immigrants especially those from overseas enter Uganda with a tourist visa and later turn it into a work permit.. Mundeyi noted that tourist visas are issued to last for a maximum of three years after which the visitor is supposed to leave the country.. He said the immigrants have abused the grace period given to them to stay and instead confuse security agents and settle in the country to start work, which he said is illegal and punishable.. Mundeyi added that the foreigners doing petty work like; waiting in restaurants/ hotels, working in International schools and those working as gatekeepers will be deported, adding that such jobs can be done by Ugandans.. He said the Inspection Department is now funded and will continue to conduct its routine ...

The goal of this chapter is to analyse how geographical, legal, institutional, and economic factors affect the scale of immigration and the skill composition of the immigrant population. A multivariate analysis allows the isolation of the effects of different immigration policies. Focusing on the receiving countries, it is found that the wage premium for education strongly increases the share of the highly skilled in the immigrant population and is thus the main economic factor that affects the skill composition of this group. Similarly, changes in the immigration legislation which favour highly skilled immigrants and R&D expenditure have a positive impact on selecting the highly educated. Generous welfare benefits and labour market regulations, like stronger employment protection, also increase the total inflow of migrants including the highly skilled, but reduce the favourable skill‐selectivity of the immigrant population.

President Trump, along with immigration opponents, repeatedly assert that immigrants are bringing infectious diseases to the U.S., but never provide any data to back up their claims.. That is because virtually every public health expert says there isnt any evidence that this is the case.. "There is no evidence to show that migrants are spreading disease," Dr. Paul Spiegel, who directs the Center for Humanitarian Health at Johns Hopkins School of Public Health told journalist Maggie Fox of NBC News. "That is a false argument that is used to keep migrants out.". The U.S. Centers for Disease Controls Division of Global Migration and Quarantine works with U.S. Customs and Border Protection to monitor people who may be entering the U.S. with an infectious disease. Physicians working with border officials may conduct medical screenings of immigrants, refugees and asylum seekers. If a person seeking admittance to the U.S. is determined to have one of nine communicable infectious diseases (such as ...
Judy Sobin -- executive director of the Peoples Health Clinic, which uses state funds to provide health services to uninsured adults working in the construction, restaurant and lodging industries in Summit and Wasatch counties -- said she believes that the law likely will prevent even documented immigrants from seeking care because of fear that it could affect their undocumented family members. Bruce Costa, executive director of the Central Utah Public Health Department, said he is concerned that many undocumented immigrants will forgo vaccines for their children even though the law does not apply to immunizations. Some undocumented immigrants are expected to turn to more costly emergency department care, which by federal law has to treat all patients, according to the ...
A treatment model designed to accommodate the beliefs and concerns of Chinese immigrants appears to significantly improve the recognition and treatment of major depression in this typically underserved group. In a report in the December American Journal of Public Health, a Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) research team describes how their model for screening and assessing patients for depression in a primary care setting increased the percentage of depressed patients entering treatment nearly sevenfold.. "Ours is the first study to incorporate a culturally sensitive interview into a collaborative care model in order to address disparities in mental illness treatment among ethnic minorities in primary care," says Albert Yeung, ScD, MD, of the MGH Department of Psychiatry, lead author of the AJPH report. "The model appears to be a promising way to treat this population, which highly underutilizes mental health services.". Yeung and his co-authors note that, while major depression is just as ...
We need to re-examine our reception and immigration practices and move beyond profit- and utility-based models of immigration "for us," as Mr. Belkhodja puts it. We will not be able to solve all our denatality, exodus and economic development problems (particularly in rural areas) with immigration. Immigrant reception also means a concern for the immigrants expectations and concerns. It requires a desire to know our immigrants in order to better integrate them into our communities. Moreover, it allows us to grow through their contributions to our culture, instead of just narrow-mindedly lining our pockets. We need to make diploma recognition easier, in addition to recognizing life experience and skills, so that immigrants are able to find real employment that is in keeping with their occupational skills. The immigrant also has requirements and responsibilities. He/she must be open to learning about the new host society, make efforts to integrate into it and contribute to its development ...
Home visiting programs for young families are growing in popularity across the United States, and have demonstrated their effectiveness in supporting maternal health and child well-being. At the same time, more infants and toddlers are growing up in immigrant families and households where a language other than English is spoken. Why then are these children under-represented in these programs? This brief explores common barriers, ways to address them, and why it is important to do so.. ...
11 brave immigrants are coming forward in Tennessee to tell the government that illegal search and seizures without warrants and without due cause are not only illegal, but unjust. After police entered their homes without warrants demanding their immigration status and their "papers"- The courts have ruled that protection under the 14th amendment extends to everyone "citizen or stranger".. Unfortunately as the legal case drags on these men could be held in jail for month if not years. For many Americans who have not experienced jail this seems like a small price to pay for the opportunity to sue- they forget, or unable to be witness to the fact that this jail time will leave their families with out needed sources of income, without their fathers, brothers and care takers and hurts the entire community that these men come from.. The article below focuses on the financial price the plaintiffs will pay, but ignores the larger social and emotional cost not only to them, but to their family and ...

My mom came to the U.S. She went to California first," Garcia said. "She met my dad there, on a strawberry field and they shared a bean taco.". The couple eventually moved to Iowa and found jobs that were not in the fields. But in the Heartland, as in California, many immigrants find work as dairy hands, crop pickers and, especially, on meat processing lines.. Mexico is the single-largest country of birth for immigrants in the Midwest. Iowa, for instance, now has four school districts in which more than 50 percent of the student body is Hispanic or Latino. Each of those communities is also home to a meat processing plant. Still, Garcia says she often feels isolated.. "Personally, I have not met any other Latina or Latino students in the FFA, except for maybe one that I met my sophomore year," Garcia said.. Many second-generation Latino Americans grew up watching their parents toil in hard, undesirable farm jobs. Thats turned some of them off of a career in the Midwests most important ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Explaining low mortality among US immigrants relative to native-born Americans. T2 - The role of smoking. AU - Blue, Laura. AU - Fenelon, Andrew. PY - 2011/6/1. Y1 - 2011/6/1. N2 - Background: In many developed countries, immigrants live longer-that is, have lower death rates at most or all ages-than native-born residents. This article tests whether different levels of smoking-related mortality can explain part of the healthy immigrant effect in the USA, as well as part of the related Hispanic paradox: the tendency for US Hispanics to outlive non-Hispanic Whites. Methods: With data from vital statistics and the national census, we calculate lung cancer death rates in 2000 for four US subpopulations: foreign-born, native-born, Hispanic and non-Hispanic White. We then use three different methods-the Peto-Lopez method, the Preston-Glei-Wilmoth method and a novel method developed in this article-to generate three alternative estimates of smokingrelated mortality for each of the ...
Implicit in these definitions: cosmogony is a story about Existence. And why, we might ask, do a people (a human being) need a cosmogony?. Humans age old yearning to both comprehend and decipher meaning in Existence necessitated our need for a cosmogony. Consequently, since the beginning of Time, that is, since we became conscious of our existence, we have invented cosmogonies, told stories about Existence, in an attempt to answer the age old questions: What is the origin of the universe? Who are we? Why are we here? Is there a meaning and purpose for our existence? Is there life after death? How ought we to live?. The fundamental societal role of cosmogony is, therefore, both sacred and secular: It gives a people meaning in Existence. It is a practical, cultural necessity enabling a people to make sense of the world in which by no fault of its own it found itself; a psychological armor enabling it to fearlessly or less fearfully engage Existence, enabling it to exist and endure. It is from it ...
Federal officials say a child in a temporary shelter in San Antonio for Central American immigrant families is recovering from swine flu.
DSouza said he personally opposes illegal immigration because it is "unfair" to legal immigrants who went through the expensive and time-consuming legal process.. "People like me had to go through the process. My wife is from Venezuela. We had to stand in line. We had to go through the immigration process. And I have lots of guys in India who would love to come to America, and they cant swim across the Rio Grande or jump across a fence," he said. "Theyve got to stand in line. So, the immigrant, the illegal, is cutting the line, is breaking the law. And the idea that a major political party has now become the champion of illegal immigration - this is a moral disgrace.". DSouza argued that the term "undocumented immigrant" is an "Orwellian phrase.". "As if to say the immigrant is merely lacking a document - no, the immigrant isnt lacking a document, the immigrant is actually breaking the law, so were talking about lawbreakers. Were talking about people who are not respecting the process. We ...

With immigration legislation stalled in Congress, advocates are intensifying pressure on the Obama administration to act unilaterally to stop deportations or grant legal status to some of the 11 million people now living in the U.S. illegally. Immigrant communities are increasingly restive over the large number of deportations under the Obama administration - close to 400,000 annually in recent years, according to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Activists say Obama should halt deportations of immigrants who would be eligible for eventual citizenship under the Senate immigration bill, which the White House supports.

After a disastrous earthquake and subsequent fires levelled much of the city in 1906, Giannini created new confidence. He set up a temporary bank immediately, collecting deposits, making loans, and proclaiming to all that San Francisco would rise from the ashes. He based his business on openness and trust, making his reputation by helping the city rebuild. Then he expanded the Bank of Italy across California, breaking with an American tradition of independent local banks by providing his egalitarian banking services to the "little fellows" in the Yugolsavian, Russian, Mexican, Portuguese, Chinese, Greek, and other immigrant communities. By the mid-1920s, he owned the third largest bank in the nation.. Big Banker ...
September 12, 2013. WASHINGTON - More than 100 women were arrested on Capitol Hill on Thursday after they blocked a busy intersection to press the House of Representatives to move on immigration legislation in a protest that rallied national womens groups to the cause.. The 115 women arrested included Terry ONeill, president of the National Organization for Women, and Linda Meric, executive director of 9to5, both womens groups that have not been prominent in pushing Congress for a path to citizenship for millions of immigrants in the country illegally.. In a choreographed demonstration, the women sat in a circle on Independence Avenue, disrupting traffic for about 30 minutes, then were handcuffed by Capitol police officers and taken away in vans. Organizers said 25 immigrants who are in the country without legal papers were among those arrested.. Last week, House leaders said they would probably not take up contentious immigration legislation this fall, with lawmakers attention focused on ...
Is citizenship hazardous to U.S. immigrants health? A study published recently in JAMA shows that only 8 percent of foreign-born persons living in the United States are obese on arrival. But after 15 years in the United States, 19 percent are obese-an increase of almost 140 percent. Researchers say the weight gain is likely attributable to the assimilation of immigrants to the high-fat foods and sedentary lifestyle more common in the United States. The obesity rate among foreign-born citizens is still lower than the U.S.-born rate of 22 percent. However, 57 percent of 15-year immigrants weigh more than their ideal weight (but are not necessarily obese), the same percentage as in U.S.-born citizens. ...
Thirty-four undocumented immigrants were detained at the Texas-Mexico border on Sept. 30. That fact by itself is unremarkable-thousands of immigrants are held in detention in the U.S. at any given time. What set this particular group of immigrants apart is that they showed up on the Mexico side of the border and openly proclaimed their desire to re-enter a country they consider home, without papers. By attempting to cross into the U.S. as part of a concerted campaign, they are forcing the U.S.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said that the illegal immigrants flooding the Southern border need to be treated like baby Jesus, mainly because that is what her Catholic faith teaches.. "I reference the conference of bishops statement in which they say baby Jesus was a refugee from violence," said Pelosi. "Let us not turn away these children and send them back into a burning building. Thats the bishops, so we have to do this in a way that honors our values but also protects our border and does so in a way that the American people understand more clearly.". ...

AC360° Writer Tonight on 360°, we dig deeper into one of the most explosive claims being made in the battle over immigration. Its what we reported last night about how some Texas Republican lawmakers are claiming that illegal immigrants are having terror babies.. Heres the accusation: Children born on U.S. soil to illegal immigrants, who are granted U.S. citizenship under the 14th amendment, are taken back to their home countries to be raised as terrorists. Then decades later the children, now adults, could be sent back to attack the U.S.. This controversial claim is linked to Texas Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert.. I was talking to a retired FBI agent, who said that one of the things they were looking at were terrorist cells overseas who had figured out how to game our system, and it appeared they would have young women, who became pregnant, who would get them into the United States to have a baby, Gohmert said on the House floor on June 24. Then they could return, where they could be ...

Increased collaboration between public municipal health care and the POPD increased the numbers of patients attending their first call to the POPD and reduced the time from examination in the municipality to examination at the POPD.. The contents of screening programmes for immigrants show great variety among countries [8]. Studies from Switzerland and Canada have shown similar problems as in our study with follow-up of TB screening results among immigrants [9, 10]. In more recent studies from Canada up to 50% of immigrants had adhered to post immigrant TB surveillance [11].. How can the follow-up of screening results be improved? A comparable study from USA showed improvement in the follow-up after arrival of people with abnormal results at their pre-entry screening. Without interventions, 25% of the immigrants arrived for follow-up. Step-wise intervention started with summoning letters, phone-calls, and finally home-visits and altogether 97.5% of the immigrants had their follow-up [12]. A ...
Trumpville is a place in the minds of people who live in reality. Unlike the old Washington D.C. where concern is on the health and welfare of foreigners and giving foreigners everything U.S. citizens have earned through their hard work and sacrifices the new Trumpville will concentrate on the health and welfare of U.S. citizens over foreigners and urge U.S. citizens to reach prosperity though well developed educational training programs and reduced immigrant presence in the U.S. taking U.S. citizen jobs and creating a low demand for employees which keeps pay rates low. Trumpville will urge foreigners in their own countries to create governments that will let them prosper without the U.S. being the worlds entitlement source for the poverty foreigners created for themselves. ...

Today, Medicaid and CHIP help fill gaps in private coverage for lawfully present immigrants, providing them access to needed care and financial protections that support their ability to work and the growth and healthy development of their children. Medicaid and CHIP provide families access to preventive and primary care, including prenatal care, as well as care for chronic conditions. In addition, the coverage provides families financial protection from high medical costs. By enabling families to meet their health care needs, Medicaid and CHIP support families ability to work and promote growth and healthy development of their children. The majority of lawfully present immigrants live in a family with at least one full-time worker (83%), a rate equal to that of citizens.11 However, lawfully present immigrants are more likely than citizens to live in low-income families and often work in jobs and industries that do not offer health coverage. Reflecting their lower incomes and limited access to ...
Immigrants are welcome, some of the best businessmen and women, the best and sometimes the ones who make it here came through the front door, but to break the law to get into the country the question must be asked, if you are against an actual law that states something that is against the law, is in fact illegale are you for slavery? Or how about underage sex trafficing? Or how about murder? Or any other number of crimes that happen in the process that someone who sneaks across the boarder, breaking the laws to get into the country. How would you feel if your realitive was killed by an illegale immigrant in cold blood? Or if you found out your idenity was stolen so an illegale immigrant could get a job while you are out of work, would it matter to you then ...

August 1, 2018. The Hispanic population across the U.S. is growing rapidly. There are currently an estimated 55 million Hispanic people in the United States, comprising over 17 percent of the population, according to the 2016 U.S. Census.. By 2060, the Census Bureau projects that Hispanic people will comprise over 28 percent of the total population, with 119 million residing here.. My 13-year-old practice, which operates independently within a Walmart in Austin, Texas, has found a niche in serving this growing population. Austin is about 34 percent Hispanic, with about 24 percent of those people speaking Spanish as a first language. I see 2-3 Spanish-speaking patients per day at my office, which is located in the lower- to middle-income neighborhood of South Manchaca.. The Hispanic patients I see are a mix of new and first-generation immigrants, who moved to our area lured by a surge in construction and service-industry jobs.. ...
