Photo: Loren Elliott/Reuters[Episcopal News Service] With COVID-19 further complicating the already dysfunctional system of processing migrants at the United States’ southern border, the Diocese of West Texas is stepping up to fill an immediate need: housing for migrants who are being released from federal custody with nowhere to go.The situation arose suddenly last week, said Flor Saldivar, the diocese’s immigration ministries coordinator, who knows how unpredictable the U.S. immigration system can be, even without a pandemic. She was hired just before COVID-19 hit the U.S. and has been rapidly adapting her work to a new, even more troubling reality. Previously, the diocese had participated in mission activities like bringing food to shelters for asylum-seekers and providing guidance and supplies to families being released from custody, but Saldivar told Episcopal News Service she “really wanted us to do more.”On July 15, out of the blue, she and the diocese got their chance. A contact from a partner organization heard that 40 Haitian women and children were unexpectedly being released from U.S. Customs and Border Protection facilities in the area due to severe overcrowding and outbreaks of COVID-19, but they needed to have housing and a sponsor lined up before they could leave.This was a critical development for the migrants, Saldivar said, because the pandemic had put further strain on the immigration system, to the point that court dates were being pushed back as much as three years. If they couldn’t get sponsors and housing, the migrants could be stuck in detention until 2023 or beyond.Flor Saldivar, the immigration ministries coordinator for the Diocese of West Texas. Courtesy photo“For them to have to live in a detention center for two whole years extra just because you don’t know anyone in this country was awful,” Saldivar said. “And so, these other organizations were kind of trying to fill that gap, but they just didn’t have the manpower. … I just thought to myself, we need to help these family members. I mean, they’re in such critical need.“And so I spoke to my bishop [David Reed] about it. And he was just over-the-moon excited. … He was just kind of like, ‘Yes, whatever we can do to help you.’”The next day, Saldivar was told of more migrants that needed housing right away. In June, a federal judge ordered that all children and their family members that had been held in U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement custody for more than 20 days had to be released by July 17, citing “horrific conditions” including COVID-19 outbreaks. At the time, there were 124 children in ICE’s three family detention centers, two of which are in West Texas. ICE, however, did not begin processing the children until that date, Saldivar told ENS. The diocese’s partner organization told Saldivar that three families were being released from one of the Texas facilities the very next day.“In the span of 48 hours, we had a very urgent need for these 40 Haitian women and children. And then we have this other extremely urgent need for those children and families being released by ICE in these two facilities. So it was kind of a double extreme urgent need,” Saldivar said.On July 17, Reed sent an email to his diocese seeking two-week accommodations – in private homes, motels or Airbnb rentals – for the migrants so they could get out of detention and then into long-term housing. The diocese also set up an emergency immigration housing fund to secure those accommodations, and there was “a scramble to find sponsors.”“The topic of immigration remains incredibly complex and divisive, and good Christians will likely disagree on what ought to be done politically until the Second Coming,” Reed wrote. “But there are plenty of points upon which we can agree, and plenty we are called to do as followers of Jesus. Reaching out our hands in love to those who are suffering is one thing we can do.”The response was immediate and enthusiastic.“We just were bombarded with overwhelming support,” Saldivar said. “I mean, The Episcopal Church, our congregants, our teams, Episcopal Migration Ministries – I mean, everyone. There was an outpouring of love and support and people donating to that fund.”With that money, the diocese rented Airbnb homes in San Antonio for the three families and provided groceries and translation services for them, Saldivar said. Some congregants have stepped up to be short-term sponsors for them while they figure out a long-term situation. The families, all with young children, are from Angola, Haiti and the Republic of the Congo.“People hear the word ‘immigrant’ and they hear the word ‘refugee’ and for some reason, everyone automatically thinks, ‘Oh, it’s all from the southern border. Everyone’s from Mexico, everyone’s from Central America or South America.’ And we do have very large populations of these families. However, a lot of the people we’re seeing that are released are from African countries,” Saldivar told ENS. “We just need to make sure that people understand it’s not only South American countries where people are fleeing from. These refugees are seeking asylum because all of these places throughout the world are not safe for them to live in.”Despite the success of the hastily arranged mission to house the three families, the situation remains dire for other migrants, and this is just the beginning of the effort to house them.On July 23, Saldivar heard that the release of the 40 Haitian women and children is going to be delayed because the group – which includes some pregnant women – is experiencing an outbreak of COVID-19. It’s unclear when they’ll be released, so Saldivar and her partner organizations are preparing to receive them whenever that happens.“We’re just getting ready because it’s the calm before the storm,” she told ENS. “And we know that in the next couple of weeks, we’re going to need a lot of help.”– Egan Millard is an assistant editor and reporter for Episcopal News Service.

Prisoner hunger strikes help to win major victory to end solitary confinement

first_imgOakland, Calif. — The Prisoner Hunger Strike Solidarity Coalition (PHSSC) held a press conference Sept. 1 to announce that a historic agreement had been reached in the Ashker v. Brown (Gov. Jerry Brown of California) federal class action suit, representing California prisoners, where the state of California has agreed to end long-term solitary confinement, among other concessions.The named plaintiffs in the suit, Todd Ashker, Sitawa Nantambu Jamaa, Luis Esquivel, George Franco, Richard Johnson, Paul Redd, Gabriel Reyes, George Ruiz and Danny Troxell, all prisoners held in Pelican Bay State Prison’s infamous Security Housing Units (SHU) for more than 10 years, issued the following statement:“This settlement represents a monumental victory for prisoners and an important step toward our goal of ending solitary confinement in California, and across the country. California’s agreement to abandon indeterminate SHU confinement based on gang affiliation demonstrates the power of unity and collective action. This victory was achieved by the efforts of people in prison, their families and loved ones, lawyers, and outside supporters. Our movement rests on a foundation of unity: our (2012) Agreement to End Hostilities. It is our hope that this groundbreaking agreement to end the violence between the various ethnic groups in California prisons will inspire not only state prisoners, but also jail detainees, county prisoners and our communities on the street, to oppose ethnic and racial violence. From this foundation, the prisoners’ human rights movement is awakening the conscience of the nation to recognize that we are fellow human beings. As the recent statements of President Obama and of [Supreme Court] Justice [Anthony] Kennedy illustrate, the nation is turning against solitary confinement. We celebrate this victory while, at the same time, we recognize that achieving our goal of fundamentally transforming the criminal justice system and stopping the practice of warehousing people in prison will be a protracted struggle. We are fully committed to that effort.”When Ashker v. Brown was filed in 2012, there were thousands of prisoners held in solitary confinement SHU units in California. According to the Center for Constitutional Rights (CCR), as of Aug. 31, a total of 2,858 prisoners were in solitary housing units throughout the state. More than 1,100 were in Pelican Bay, the state’s toughest prison, where the isolation cells don’t even have windows.According to the CCR’s website, “This landmark settlement will effectively end indeterminate, long-term solitary confinement in California state prisons, fundamentally altering all aspects of this cruel and unconstitutional regime. Ultimately, it is the result not merely of litigation, but of a widespread community effort led by prisoners and their families.”“From the historic prisoner-led hunger strikes of 2011 and 2013, to the work of families, loved ones and advocates, this settlement is a direct result of our grassroots organizing, both inside and outside the prison walls,” said Dolores Canales of California Families Against Solitary Confinement (CFASC), and mother of a prisoner in Pelican Bay. “This legal victory is huge, but is not the end of our fight — it will only make the struggle against solitary and imprisonment everywhere stronger.” (ccrjustice.org, Sept 1)The PHSSC press release points out, “The prisoners embarked on two hunger strikes in 2011 and another in 2013 that became the largest prisoner hunger strike in history, with over 30,000 prisoners across California and the country refusing food. In 2012, they filed this lawsuit against the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation. Their struggle is a long-standing struggle to abolish a torturous practice that was instated to repress and attack the powerful prisoner-led movement in the 1960’s and 70’s.“The settlement changes California’s use of solitary confinement by limiting the use of punitive isolation to only cases where there has been a substantiated serious violation of ‘behavior.’ The prison system can no longer send people to the SHU because of accusations of gang affiliation or their political ideas and interests, which currently account for why many are inside solitary.“The settlement was negotiated with the active participation of prisoner representatives, who will continue to participate formally, along with their attorneys and the magistrate judge, to monitor implementation of the terms of the agreement.”The PHSSC says: “It is estimated that between 1,500 and 2,000 prisoners will be released from SHU within one year of this settlement. A higher security general population unit will be created for a small number of cases where people have been in SHU for more than 10 years and have a recent serious rule violation.”The effects of this settlement on the prison population are truly significant. Hundreds of these prisoners had been isolated for decades, according to the CCR’s website. “They spent nearly 24 hours per day in cramped cells, often without windows, and were denied phone calls, all physical contact with visitors, and recreational, educational, and vocational programming.“Under the system challenged in the lawsuit, prisoners validated as gang affiliates used to face indefinite SHU confinement, with a review for possible release to general population only once every six years, at which even a single piece of evidence of alleged continued gang affiliation led to another six years of solitary confinement. That evidence was often as problematic as the original evidence used to send them to SHU — for example, a book, a poem or a tattoo that was deemed to be gang-related.”Under the settlement: “After serving a determinate sentence for a SHU offense, prisoners whose offense is related to gang activity will enter a two-year, four-step, step-down program to return to the general prisoner population. Prisoners will receive increased privileges at each step.“California will review all current gang-validated SHU prisoners within one year of the settlement to determine whether they should be released from solitary under the settlement terms. The vast majority of such prisoners are expected to be released. Virtually no prisoner will ever be held in SHU for more than 10 continuous years.”Anne Weills, one of the dedicated lawyers, who has spent countless hours working on this suit, including many trips up to Pelican Bay, said at the press conference, “We wouldn’t be here if not for the leadership of our prisoner clients. All honor to the jailhouse lawyers, who were the leaders and strategists of this struggle.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Traver talked about how God has used him to impact the TCU community through various platforms, such as his book “21 Promises” and his Twitter account @traverbros.“TCU embodies a diligent, loving community where I find people making an impact everywhere I go,” Traver said. “TCU’s mission statement allows for young men and women like the Frogwire team and their interviewees to make a difference.”Cade Bethea, a sophomore strategic communications major, was featured because of his personal clothing line Southern and Thankful as well as his involvement on campus. Bethea said the Frogwire team is passionate and is furthering students’ involvement with TCU’s mission statement.“Frogwire does a great job at being everything the mission statement wants us to be,” Bethea said. “It’s obvious they are passionate about this site and showcasing all the good students are doing on campus.”Both Traver and Bethea said they have received nothing but positive feedback since being featured on Frogwire’s website.The Frogwire team, a group of seven students who wish to remain anonymous, said some of their goals include being a positive platform for TCU and providing a “raw, authentic feel” to their stories.The founder of Frogwire said the team decided to remain anonymous in order to highlight the featured students rather than to praise the team members for starting the project.

The Impact on At-Risk Homeowners

first_imgHome / Daily Dose / The Impact on At-Risk Homeowners The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Millions of homeowners are now financially vulnerable as a result of COVID-19, and in a Harvard Joint Center for Housing Studies report, Sharon Cornelissen and Alexander Hermann cover COVID-19’s potential. The researchers interviewed homeowners and housing stakeholders in Brockton, Massachusetts and analyzed national data on homeowners who rely on income from at-risk industries.”The effects are already being felt in Brockton, a post-industrial city located 25 miles south of Boston that has seen a resurgent housing market and renewed activity in its struggling downtown over the last decade,” JCHS said.National data indicate that many people in other locales face similar challenges. Indeed, the jobs most at-risk to the current economic disruption are prevalent across the country. Collectively, these at-risk full-time workers lived in 24.9 million US households.More than half of these households—59%, or 14.7 million in total—were homeowners, including 16% (4.1 million) with a mortgage. Overall, nearly one in five American homeowners (19 percent) were reliant on at least one household member employed in an industry now at risk due to COVID-19, including 22% of all homeowners with a mortgage.Many of these households were already more vulnerable to economic shocks. For example, homeowners who exclusively relied on wages earned in at-risk industries had higher housing cost burden rates and lower household incomes on average compared to homeowners in less vulnerable industries.Not all these households risk becoming cost-burdened or facing foreclosure. Even many workers in at-risk industries will keep their jobs. as JCHS notes, some who lose their jobs will be able to find other sources of income. With a quick recovery, most will be able to return to work or regain their hours.While the financial impacts of COVID-19 on homeowners will become clearer over time, the severity of the problem requires an immediate and comprehensive response. “Solutions have to be big and bold,” said om Callahan Massachusetts Affordable Housing Alliance Director, “and probably have to be sustained over a multi-year period, so that we really do recover from this, and help people who were impacted.” About Author: Seth Welborn Sign up for DS News Daily Previous: The Week Ahead: Insight from FHFA Director on Forbearance Next: Jamie Dimon: We’re Getting a ‘Bad Recession’ Coronavirus HOUSING 2020-04-04 Seth Welborn in Daily Dose, Featured, Market Studies, News Related Articles Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Subscribe  Print This Postcenter_img The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Tagged with: Coronavirus HOUSING The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago April 4, 2020 1,578 Views The Impact on At-Risk Homeowners Share Save Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Seth Welborn is a Reporter for DS News and MReport.
