Fear, Language Barriers Hinder Immigrant Contact-Tracing

"Many of those being approached are essential workers who worry about being sidelined for days or weeks awaiting test results, while others fear how members of their community will react to contracting the virus," said Fernando Garcia. http://ow.ly/UnkC50B3VfT

Only a handful of contact tracers working to slow COVID-19 in 125 communities near Chicago speak Spanish, despite significant Hispanic populations. Churches and advocacy groups in the Houston area are trying to convince immigrants to cooperate when health officials call.

Justice for Michael Isaiah Vallejo organized by Cemelli De Aztlan

The Justicia for El Paso Coalition will gather for Justice Tuesday / Martes de Justicia, on August 18, 2020 at 6 pm in front of the El Paso Police Department Headquarters, 911 N. Raynor, to reiterate their weekly call for accountability and immediate change in the El Paso Police Department (EPPD), in response to its shameful record of abuse of power.

We will continue to demand justice for Michael Isaiah Vallejo, who was unjustly killed in EPPD hands during his senior year of high school in 2004. His mother, Irene Vallejo states, "I haven't put his tombstone on his grave because I can't lay him to rest until there's justice for my son, Michael." We are helping her demand justice for her son and raising funds for his headstone. The Vallejo family will share their story and read poems written by Michael and which were published before his death.

Lack of digital access poses challenges for census response rate

"Ensuring more members of the community complete the census is important because it directly impacts government funding," says Fernando Garcia. "Many of our communities... don't have access to computers so the information getting to them (is) very scarce.” http://ow.ly/BmHF50AZPi9

With just over a month left to respond to the 2020 census, local advocates are sounding the alarm about El Paso’s response rate. “So for El Paso and El Paso county, we've been stagnant at about 62% for the last seven weeks,” said Elizabeth O'Hara, co-chair of the Paso Del Norte com...

A year later, Fernando Garcia wishes he could say the Aug. 3 shooting prompted a closer look at racism and combating hate, but he cannot. “I think when we get closer to Aug. 3, the realization is that little progress has been made,” Garcia said. http://ow.ly/NhhF50ASIC3

Lying in broken glass, he listened as the sound of gunshots grew closer. Then the man with the AK-47 was only 10 feet away.

One year later, El Paso reflects on the hate behind Walmart shooting

The Walmart shooting was a result of "gun access, white supremacy, & the president's anti-immigrant rhetoric," said Fernando Garcia.

"August 3rd was not circumstantial," he added. "It was something that happened because three evil systems came together." http://ow.ly/htOc50ASItr

An alleged racist attack killed 23 at an El Paso Walmart on Aug. 3, 2019. Dozens more were injured. Survivors, others reflect on hate-inspired attack.

Great job organizing the protest today, it was peaceful but got the message across. My band (Vehicle) is available to provide music if you need any for future events. I spoke briefly to Mr. Garcia about it at the event today. We can provide a spund system if you need it also. [email protected] 915-276-7022
BNHR did a great thing today, helping to bring attention to those who have been left behind during the pandemic.
I have been reading this wonderful FICTION book on Immigrants and their frightful passage up to “el otro lado” and I want to share it with you. Fabulous reading. American Dirt, Jeanine Cummins
Removing and stopping illegal guns, drugs and aliens is lawful and a good thing. If you have to live with more Blackhawk helicopters, too bad. Maybe a really good wall will put your network out of business, which would be a good thing for all.
Hey Mr Garcia.. more blackhawk helicopters because IT IS A WAR!! where have you been, how do you not know this sir.
The sound of a Blackhawk in the air is the sound of our nation protecting her boarders from illegal aliens. Thank you President Trump. #Trump 2020
