'My terror after knee-capping'
Matthew and Silvia believe dissident republicans ordered the attack after Matthew was accused of being a drug dealer, a charge he denies.
Punishment shootings by paramilitary groups have always been a feature of the conflict in Northern Ireland.

"The dissident republican groups want to show they're invaluable to the community. In overall terms those groups have very minimal support," he says.

"But if they are seen to be dealing with persistent offenders who're engaging in anti-social activities, the community sees that and by and large will support it."

Racist Graffiti Outbreak

TULLYTOWN, Pa. - Vandals are spreading a message of hate in Bucks County. Vehicles and homes are being targeted and police want to know who is behind it.

"When I backed up, I looked over like this and there’s a giant swastika looking at me," says Werline.

To make matters worse, Bill's truck has been hit twice. And he's not alone.

Police say vandals ran amok, damaging at least eight cars and homes in the Tullytown neighborhood.

U.S. citizens have been accidentally caught up in immigration crackdown, AP says
The Associated Press

In a drive to crack down on illegal immigration, the United States has locked up or deported dozens, probably many more, of its citizens over the past eight years, according to an Associated Press investigation.

The AP documented 55 such cases — citizens detained for anything from a day to five years. Immigration lawyers say there are actually hundreds of such cases.

By AMY LORENTZEN , 04.13.09, 04:49 PM EDT

A former human resources manager arrested after a massive immigration raid at an Iowa kosher slaughterhouse pleaded guilty Monday to federal immigration charges.

Elizabeth Billmeyer, of Postville, pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to harbor undocumented aliens for profit and one count of knowingly accepting false resident alien cards.

The 48-year-old worked at the Agriprocessors Inc. plant in Postville, once the nation's largest kosher slaughterhouse. She faces up to 20 years in prison and a $500,000 fine.



The job search is even bleaker for boomers

"If you are old and have a job, you are less likely -- albeit less less likely than in the old days -- to be fired," Munnell said

The unemployment rate in March for workers ages 45 and over was 6.4 percent, the highest since at least 1948, when the Bureau of Labor Statistics began tracking unemployment on a monthly basis.

But once older workers lose their jobs, Munnell said, "then it's horrible." They have a much harder time finding work again than younger job seekers do, and statistics appear to show that it is harder for them in this recession than in previous ones. During downturns in 1982 and 2001, workers ages 45 and over were unemployed an average of 19 weeks and just under 17 weeks, respectively.

Many out-of-work baby boomers have despaired as they wonder whether to trim their resumes to avoid giving away their decades of work experience, or to dye their hair.



Police, federal agents raid Warwick spa

Three Korean women, one of whom had an outstanding deportation order, were questioned at the scene, but no one was arrested, Tavares said. One woman gave a New Jersey address, another gave a Fall River address. Tavares said all three women are adults, but did not provide their ages.

A kitchen, cooking equipment, mattresses and personal items found in ground-floor rooms “were signs that they were sleeping there,” and may have been there “for some period of time,” Tavares said. While that could point to trafficking, “there would have to be further evidence” that the women were being kept against their will.

He said the raid was not connected with Wednesday’s House Judiciary hearing on closing the loophole that makes indoor prostitution legal in Rhode Island. Under current state law, only streetwalkers, their pimps and their customers can be charged. An amendment to the current bill to criminalize indoor prostitution would exempt women who are “compelled into prostitution,” and would increase the punishment for human trafficking of a minor to a fine of at least $40,000 and up to life in prison.

The police had contacted interpreters, and were prepared to call on women’s advocates, based on the belief that the police might find non-English-speaking trafficking victims during the search, Tavares said. The three Korean women spoke English well enough to communicate with the police, and have not been identified as trafficking victims at this time.


Illegal migrants' children targeted
Group's initiative would limit rights of the kids of undocumented residents.

Saturday, Apr. 11, 2009

For undocumented parents to obtain the new "Certificate of Live Birth with Foreign Parent," they would have to be photographed, fingerprinted and pay an additional $75 fee.
Beyond the birth certificates, the measure also would limit welfare payments for the children of undocumented immigrants, as well as require that any application for public benefits submitted by illegal immigrants be handed over to federal authorities.
The state's current 10.5% unemployment rate makes this "the absolute worst time to continue to spend taxpayer money and resources on foreigners who are in the United States illegally," said Tony Dolz, one of the measure's authors.

Should the measure qualify, it could rekindle California's long-simmering electoral wars over race and culture, which last peaked in 1994 with the passage of Proposition 187.
That measure, which stripped illegal immigrants of access to state services, was largely overturned in court.


Paralyzed roofer's case raises legal debate over rights of illegal immigrants hurt on job

WEST PALM BEACH — Victor Leon is alone in the hospital most days.

The 26-year-old was paralyzed nearly three years ago when he fell from the roof of a three-story building in Palm City while working for Jupiter-based Altec Roofing. Since then, Leon has been mired in a legal battle to get workers' compensation benefits or legal damages from Altec.

"It's sort of a legal limbo," said Chad Hastings, Leon's attorney. "He's in a place where basically the American government is saying, 'Go die somewhere.' "

His bill at St. Mary's is climbing quickly toward $500,000. No one is paying that bill. Likely the hospital will have to write it off as charity care.

A civil court judge ruled Altec did not owe Leon anything for negligence, citing a precedent case that gives an employer legal immunity when they provide workers' compensation. But Altec denied Leon workers' compensation because of his illegal status.

"This guy paid taxes. He paid higher taxes than me," Hastings said. "But now, no one wants to help him."

Companies shouldn't be hiring illegal immigrants in the first place, said former state Rep. Gayle Harrell, R-Port St. Lucie. But even if the employer knew the worker was illegal, Harrell said that doesn't entitle an injured worker — already breaking the law — to benefits


Judge tosses lawsuit on legality of Plainfield company renting apartments to illegal immigrants
Judge William J. Martini, sitting in Newark, dismissed the case. "The crux of Plaintiff's argument is that renting apartments to illegal aliens constitutes racketeering activity because it constitutes harboring, encouraging, or inducing an illegal alien in violation of the INA,'' he wrote in his decision. "However, no court in this circuit or in any other has ever found this to be the case ... renting an apartment to an alien does not amount to harboring, encouraging, or inducing.''


Mexico slams Burger King for 'whopper' of insult

Tuesday 14th April, 05:42 AM JST


Mexico is protesting what it says is a whopper of an insult.

An advertisement for Burger King’s chili-flavored “Texican” burger that has run in Europe shows a small wrestler dressed in a cape resembling a Mexican flag. The wrestler teams up with a lanky American cowboy twice his height to illustrate the cross-border blend of flavors.

“The taste of Texas with a little spicy Mexican,” a narrator’s voice says.

It is not the first time that fast-food outlets have offended Mexican sensibilities.

Mexicans and other Hispanics in the United States objected to a Taco Bell ad from the 1990s that featured a pint-sized talking Chihuahua that spoke with a Mexican accent.

Schoolgirl told to choose: Country or parents

By Kyung Lah
Under Japanese immigration laws, the Calderons won't be allowed back into Japan for five years.

They've asked for a special waiver to visit their daughter after a year, but it hasn't been granted yet. So their last, public hug could be the last time they see their daughter until she's 18.


Filipino parents deported, leaving Japan-born daughter behind
The family gained the backing of the local city assembly in March, which decided to support their bid for special residency in order to guarantee Noriko's growth and education. Aside from only speaking Japanese, if forced to return to the Philippines, she would have to repeat large parts of her education.

Noriko will live with her aunt and uncle, and continue to attend the same junior high school. Lawyers for the family have collected 1.58 million yen to go toward her school fees. Her parents will return to Manila to look for work. The date of their next visit to Japan has yet to be decided.

Deportation usually carries with it a five-year ban on re-entering the country. However, Justice Minister Eisuke Mori said that he will grant special landing permission to Arlan and Sarah in order to see their daughter.
