"Every ethnic minority, in seeking in its own freedom, helped strengthen the fabric of liberty in American life. Similarly, every aspect of the American economy has profited from the contributions of immigrants." ~ John F. Kennedy 🗽

Demonstrators hold up their fists as they are arrested outside of the US Capitol during an immigration rally in support of DACA and TPS programs, Dec. 6, 2017. Thousands rallied in Washington, DC, urging lawmakers to pass legislation before the December recess that will protect the hundreds of thousands of immigrants brought to the US as children. The protests were organized by local and national immigration rights groups. See more from the week in photos at the link in bio.

An Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) is an entry requirement for visa-exempt foreign nationals travelling to Canada by air. An eTA is electronically linked to a traveller’s passport. It is valid for up to five years or until the passport expires, whichever comes first. If you get a new passport, you need to get a new eTA.
With a valid eTA, you can travel to Canada as often as you want for short stays (normally for up to six months at a time). You do not need an eTA for travel within Canada.
An eTA doesn’t guarantee entry to Canada. When you arrive, a border services officer will ask to see your passport and other documents – for example, a U.S. Green Card. You must convince the officer that you are eligible for entry into Canada.#immigration#canada#eta#visa#entry#flying#application#law#greencard#usa#exempt#country

The story of my immigration Part 2️⃣
NY is like a man. If you admit to him you’re in love, he will not answer you in return. But if you don’t care, he will do everything to conquer you. That was exactly what happened with me. For the first time, I consciously confessed my love to this city on a bench near the 9/11 memorial, a very depressed and painful place. But, it was there. I realized how many opportunities this country gives you. How much experience you can get in the real heart of the world! How many people you can meet here. How many souls you can see under the magnifying glass and this city will contemplate yours. But the main thing is the highest price of your time. It’s so fleeting and you need to hasten to live, have time to accomplish everything that you are dreaming about. Not your parents, kids or spouse, but only you! And it’s time!
Don`t judge me. It wasn`t so easy at the beginning and it wan`t a fairy tale for me. Its not easy now and I know what it's like to come alone to a new country where you have no one and nothing. When you have an extrasmall budget for a new life, even less. I know what it's like to doubt yourself and feel like a person with a disability each time because you can’t speak as perfectly as in your own language. It’s horrible because language is your bread and the way you make money. I know what it means to walk for an hour to work, eat only oatmeal or nothing for a few weeks. I know what it feels like to be lonely and unnecessary in this city. I know what it is like when your hands go down and you want to cry burst into tears because there, far away in your past life, everything is so good and here where is nothing. When you still get calls and offers to return to your favorite job, family, friends ... but you’re sitting here in cold, little, empty room and you should make an important choice for yourself. Be nobody and fight for your place in the sun to build everything from scratch with unrealistically hard work, or return...it’s all up to you.
I want to appeal to everyone who reads this scribbling .. fight! Fight every day! Fight with yourself and for yourself! As hard as it is, it will be easier tomorrow! ⬇️⬇️⬇️
@edusamani - “Kay NewKirk - UPDATE: Erika Andiola and the 6 other Dreamers & one ally who were arrested on Friday are being held in police custody until at least Tuesday am. They were brought before a judge and the government requested a hold in response to their noncooperation. In accordance with the direction of their clients, the #Dream7 attorneys did not oppose the hold. They have all been transferred to DC jail. We have reason to believe that DC Court Pre-Trial Services took initiative to contact ICE about Erika. I spoke with Erika via phone from jail at 3:45a last night and confirmed to share this. Every day they are in police custody the danger of additional ICE engagement and then deportation grows, as it grows for all undocumented youth with each day that goes by without passage of the Dream Act. We have confirmed that Erika and the others are all on hunger strike and have been since they were arrested. They are committed to remaining in jail until Senator Chuck Schumer & Rep. Carlos Curbelo publicly confirm they have the votes to block any spending bill without a clean Dream Act. We request solidarity to put maximum public & private pressure on Schumer & Curbelo via all channels. Please share this post everywhere and take action at FightForOurDream.Org. Thank you so much to all who are taking any action to support at this difficult time.”

A lot of people have been asking about my story of immigration. So here we are. Now I’m ready to tell: this is my “Life is like a TV show”. Part 1️⃣. I have dreamed about America since I was 4 years old. It happened when I first heard Michael Jackson and totally fell in love with English. Then I told my mother that I would live there, where everyone speaks in this beautiful language.
But I must say, the older I got, the more I realized I needed to move. I became a very good specialist in Ukraine. Producer is my dream job. I have been working towards this position for so long. It has been a very difficult road. And now I have 8 years experience of work on TV, dozens of beautiful shows written and run by me. One day, I was offered a leadership position on one of the biggest TV Channels in Ukraine. It seemed that I had everything I had dreamed of...But at that moment I found out I had won a green card ... It was a very difficult choice for me. On the one hand I had a dream job and successful future. On the another side, one of the biggest dreams of my entire life... so I took a risk. All my life I have been running shows about someone and now the show begins about me. The show in which I am the director, sponsor, screenwriter, producer and actor. Light! Camera! Sound! Action!
Flight to America ... 10 hours my eyes are glued to the porthole. The only one thing that I was thinking about - I'm going to MY place, I'm going to search for myself. And this will be one of the biggest challenges and amazing journeys in my life. The plane landed and the first thought that visited me here was the question: “why didn’t I move earlier?”. Exit from the plane and New York City... It didn’t smell at all. Nothing. The air in Ukraine is filled with herbs, it is spicy, fresh, fragrant. But there is nothing. Plenty of air like breathing in a plastic lunch-box. All other things of living in NYC were normal, as if I lived here all the time. I think I definitely lived here in a past life and now I had returned home again. #immigrantstory#immigration#ilovenyc#brooklynbridge#brooklyn#manhatthan#newyorkcity#newyorker#newyork_instagram#arnic#humansofnewyork

Abednego DeLaCruz with his daughter Jazlyn, 10 mos., in their Chattahoochee, Fla. home on Saturday, July 1, 2017. DeLaCruz was injured while working for a construction company that hired him without verifying his documents. After his injury, he was fired and left without further medical care. He is currently waiting for a decision on the appeal he filed after he was denied asylum to stay in the U.S. Look for the special report on "Florida's Disposable Workers" on naplesnews.com where you can also see more photos by @dorothy_edwards. #immigration#workerscomp#undocumented
Yesterday’s #WaterDrop was heavy. We hiked to two different places, separated in the desert, where we know these routes are heavily traveled by migrants.
As with all drops, we pick up trash as well as old bottles that have been left in the desert. On this day, we found over a dozen consumed bottles, which is nothing new. It’s beautiful to see. We know where migrants travel. We scout ahead of time to make sure where we drop water is in areas that are being traveled.
At the same time, we find bottles on occasion that are shot and/or stabbed. These are places where recreational shooting is not allowed, so you have to stop and think who is doing this and why? Anti-immigrant groups? “Lone wolf” individuals that hate migrants? Border Patrol?
I was at a loss for words yesterday, after this video clip ends. This is stuff we see when we’re out there, but this is stuff migrants have to live with as they’re crossing. When we’re saving lives by leaving water to prevent fatal dehydration, I call this act of hate an attempt at taking a life.
