Summer Traffic Safety by John Fossum

KYMN Radio - 7 hours 58 min ago

In the last two weeks, Rice County Judges have sentenced two people for traffic deaths. One was caused by the driver’s excessive alcohol consumption, and one was caused by grossly negligent driving conduct of the driver. Often in these cases people react to the sentences as being too low, some claim they are too high

tRump reverses HIS child incarceration policy

Carol Overland - Legalectric - Wed, 06/20/2018 - 7:20pm

#notmyPresident signed an Executive Order today reversing HIS policy to actively jail children. Good, the pressure got him to cave.  It was probably Neilsen’s interrupted dinner, with others in the restaurant cheering on the protesters, that did it.  After all this time of blaming everyone on earth but HIMSELF, a shotgun approach at anything that moved, lie after lie after lie, he takes a step in the right direction.  ONE step, out of many that are needed.

Here’s the text of the Executive Order — the language is pretty mealy-mouthed, but it’s a start.  There’s MUCH more to be done.  “Affording Congress…”  GOOD GRIEF!

Affording Congress an Opportunity to Address Family Separation

Issued on: June 20, 2018

By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, including the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA), 8 U.S.C. 1101 et seq., it is hereby ordered as follows:

Section 1. Policy. It is the policy of this Administration to rigorously enforce our immigration laws. Under our laws, the only legal way for an alien to enter this country is at a designated port of entry at an appropriate time. When an alien enters or attempts to enter the country anywhere else, that alien has committed at least the crime of improper entry and is subject to a fine or imprisonment under section 1325(a) of title 8, United States Code. This Administration will initiate proceedings to enforce this and other criminal provisions of the INA until and unless Congress directs otherwise. It is also the policy of this Administration to maintain family unity, including by detaining alien families together where appropriate and consistent with law and available resources. It is unfortunate that Congress’ failure to act and court orders have put the Administration in the position of separating alien families to effectively enforce the law.

Sec. 2. Definitions. For purposes of this order, the following definitions apply:

(a) “Alien family” means

(i) any person not a citizen or national of the United States who has not been admitted into, or is not authorized to enter or remain in, the United States, who entered this country with an alien child or alien children at or between designated ports of entry and who was detained; and

(ii) that person’s alien child or alien children.

(b) “Alien child” means any person not a citizen or national of the United States who

(i) has not been admitted into, or is not authorized to enter or remain in, the United States;

(ii) is under the age of 18; and

(iii) has a legal parent-child relationship to an alien who entered the United States with the alien child at or between designated ports of entry and who was detained.

Sec. 3. Temporary Detention Policy for Families Entering this Country Illegally.

(a) The Secretary of Homeland Security (Secretary), shall, to the extent permitted by law and subject to the availability of appropriations, maintain custody of alien families during the pendency of any criminal improper entry or immigration proceedings involving their members.

(b) The Secretary shall not, however, detain an alien family together when there is a concern that detention of an alien child with the child’s alien parent would pose a risk to the child’s welfare.

(c) The Secretary of Defense shall take all legally available measures to provide to the Secretary, upon request, any existing facilities available for the housing and care of alien families, and shall construct such facilities if necessary and consistent with law. The Secretary, to the extent permitted by law, shall be responsible for reimbursement for the use of these facilities.

(d) Heads of executive departments and agencies shall, to the extent consistent with law, make available to the Secretary, for the housing and care of alien families pending court proceedings for improper entry, any facilities that are appropriate for such purposes. The Secretary, to the extent permitted by law, shall be responsible for reimbursement for the use of these facilities.

(e) The Attorney General shall promptly file a request with the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California to modify the Settlement Agreement in Flores v. Sessions, CV 85-4544 (“Flores settlement”), in a manner that would permit the Secretary, under present resource constraints, to detain alien families together throughout the pendency of criminal proceedings for improper entry or any removal or other immigration proceedings.

Sec. 4. Prioritization of Immigration Proceedings Involving Alien Families. The Attorney General shall, to the extent practicable, prioritize the adjudication of cases involving detained families.

Sec. 5. General Provisions.

(a) Nothing in this order shall be construed to impair or otherwise affect:

(i) the authority granted by law to an executive department or agency, or the head thereof; or

(ii) the functions of the Director of the Office of Management and Budget relating to budgetary, administrative, or legislative proposals.

(b) This order shall be implemented in a manner consistent with applicable law and subject to the availability of appropriations.

(c) This order is not intended to, and does not, create any right or benefit, substantive or procedural, enforceable at law or in equity by any party against the United States, its departments, agencies, or entities, its officers, employees, or agents, or any other person.

Last Week: We enjoyed a recap of the Tanzania trip, complete with an amazing slideshow of safari animals. 13 people went on the trip, ten were from Northfield, three were from the Cities, and everyone had a Rotary connection. The travelers were Mark and Diana Abbott, Paul and Will Beaumaster, Al Zdrazil and Sally Mortenson, Charlie and Dianne Kyte, Judy Johnson, Gloria Pautz, Corinne Smith, Lee and Vicki Dilley. They visited in late March/early April, visiting Rotary Clubs, our past inbound student Wanzita and the Serengeti.

Will Beaumaster shared about his experience of being part of Wanzita’s host family. He said she didn’t know the Western world at all when she came to Minnesota. It was understandable once he saw where she lives in Tanzania with no running water. Will says everyone is happy in Tanzania and the guides were wonderful. He brought four soccer balls so he could give them to the schools. They were delighted since they had been playing with a ball of string. Will got a chance to play soccer with them, and learned that they play barefoot. He was known for having an eagle eye on safari and his favorite animal was the cheetah.

Judy Johnson is from the Maple Grove Rotary Club. She shared about the menstrual kits they provided so Tanzanian girls can stay in school and end the cycle of poverty. 

Mark Abbott says that Tanzania has little or no electricity, no running water, dirt roads and its main industry is agriculture. People walk everywhere for many miles—to get water, wood or take food to market. Mark and the others helped to plant 100 trees during their visit. The Tanzania Rotary Club has proposed a project to four other clubs and ours. $65,000 will build a well and by splitting the cost and receiving matching funds from the Rotary Foundation, our club’s contribution would only be $3,700. Mark urged our members to consider supporting this important project.

Our 2017-18 outbound students are:
Madison Asp — Finland

Joan Erickson — Argentina

Annika Fisher— South Africa

Bergen Hoff — Czech Republic/Slovakia

Emma Iverson — Spain

Alex Kovach — Japan

Joseph Kreis — Italy

Benjamin (Ben) Mohlke — Brazil

Piper Nelson — Germany

Jenna Olien — South Korea
