As was already mentioned the GOP is cutting those programs across the board so BFD
Also they're not allowed to leave the US since they're carrying around somebody else's ID and SS#.
I know a guy who came here illegally from Mexico who had to go through a rigorous process of getting into the US within a Mexican human trafficking group. He said majority of those trafficked through the US are indeed gangbangers but I'll save that story for another time. Once they arrive to a border town (between US/MEXICO) somebody from the black market provides them with a social security # and ID from some random average Joe in the US. This allows them to have access to these clinics/healthcare and other benefits we legal citizens receive. I

Sorry Bill Wylie , my post was meant for Teddy Oberman!
Teddy how does illegals have anything to do with these programs? When you're not documented or how you like to call it illegal you CAN'T get any assistance unless you have a social security number these are federally funded programs. People with a mentality like yours is what's wrong with our country!!!!!! You're justifying these cuts as sending illegals back you're so ignorant and uneducated. These cuts affect poor people and those in so much need like our senior citizens. Oh wait let me guess the money is better used building a wall.. oh wait Trump said we'd get reimbursed by the Mexican government which is total lies!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Well, he does believe that torture works! The only worse thing he could do for Oakland is to erect billboards of his face posted all over the city - that stupid-looking face would be enough to keep illegals and legals alike from coming here.
Bill Wylie - just follow the rules of etiquette and stop shouting your ignorant and grammatically incorrect drivel!
No one got hurt and only a few fools vandalized the city and nobody had their business or car smashed to bits. For a change, Oakland had a powerful and peaceful assembly. Everyone I know who participated thought it was great and felt safe. I'm one of many Oaklanders who went to DC to march. There was a general unease among many of us from the Bay Area that Oakland would get out of hand and provide Trump with ugly, unruly evidence against those who oppose his agenda. Thank you to everyone who came out and made our city proud and to the cops who safeguarded her citizens and streets.
This is hardly shocking. These are programs that the GOP hates and thus would have been cut anyway.
Couple this with the fact that California, overwhelmingly, voted against the thin skinned, petulant, narcissistic, snowflake in chief and one could argue that such reprisals were inevitable.
IT DOES NOT MATTER, HOW MUCH, THEY PROTEST, OR WHAT THEY HAVE TO SAY. WHILE OBAMA WAS DESTROYING THE USA, WE FOUGHT HIM, USING THE LAWS & THE COURTS, & HE COULD NOT, BE STOPPED!!! ...BECAUSE HE WAS "THE PRESIDENT"....
YOU CAN DO NOTHING NOW, TO STOP PRESIDENT TRUMP.
HE IS, GOING TO MAKE, AMERICA, GREAT AGAIN!!! ... AND YOU, WILL NOT, UNDERSTAND, HOW THIS WILL WORK OUT, UNTIL
AFTER IT HAS BEEN DONE; BECAUSE YOU LIBERAL PEOPLE ARE COMPLETELY IGNORANT REGARDING HOW A NATION, MUST OPERATE AS A WHOLE IN ORDER FOR IT TO THRIVE AND TO SURVIVE...OK? GOD BLESS YOU ALL.
JUST FOLLOW OUR USA LAWS AND SEND THE ILLEGAL'S BACK TO THEIR OWN COUNTRY'S AND THE CITIES WILL GET THEIR MONEY; THE LAW OF THE USA MUST NOT BE BROKEN BECAUSE SOME PEOPLE WANT TO BREAK IT
BECAUSE IT SUITS THEIR OWN PURPOSES...THE LAW IS THE LAW FOR
This is sad, Oakland has already do many problems, Why is the president doing ? It serves no purpose
Other being mean and bias, this city andvyhebpeoplevin it Wil suffer grestly, this kind of
Hstevis not good forvAmerics, someone please help us
The charter extremists spent big money to defeat me and the 3 other challengers to the GO Advocates dominated board and management.
Here we are in the same school year and we have the budget in a mess, the superintendent job hopping and poor charter oversight reaping it's rewards.
All of this was said before and during the election, but reporting has been scarce.
Where have Cat Brooks and KPFA been? The other media? Local news needs to report on local government and except for Darwin, it hardly does.
Sorry, folks, the Conga Lounge has been closed since 2015
We Can't wait.. imagine the disappointment when I wanted a meal at Gussies for my birthday only to get there and find it had closed!!! and NOW, It's reopening closer to home!!! Great food great atmosphere and great location. A dream come true...
I guess the threshold for deportation cooperation should be raised really really high. What should we raise it to? Armed bank robbery, rape, arson of a residence? Apparently some people think multiple "minor" crimes are not enough to allow cooperation with ICE.
If I was undocumented I'd be unusually careful about obeying the law.
How hard is that to do.... I don't know, but I've gone 60+ years without an arrest. I guess its not that difficult.
BTW, according to the data in the most recent ICE annual report, if you are one of the 11 million undocumented, and you have not been convicted of a serious crime, your chances of being deported from the "interior" (25 or more miles from the border) of the USA, are in any given year, one in 700.
Yes, the data shows only one person in 700 gets deported as long as they have not been convicted of a serious crime.
Meaning for most who don't commit crimes, their chances of being deported during a entire 35 year working career, are about 1 in 20.
Essentially next to zero deportations unless you are involved in criminal activity.
Say what you want, that is what the data shows.
No need for most undocumented to be "living in the shadows" like we hear about in the news. Those living a crime free life, are all but free from deportation.
I seriously doubt even Trump is going to be deporting them.
Thanks for this article, East Bay Express. Oakland education has been an under-reported beat recently, but there are plenty of important stories to tell, and there are plenty of people very interested in reading and sharing them. Keep it up!
Oakland schools have been suffering years at the expense of students. So interesting during this boom in housing prices that expectations rise along with home amd rent increases. Some charter schools fail, some are great and are successful, ultimately providing alternative and innovative options to an antiquated, broken and underfunded system. What about public schools who underperformed for whatever justifying reasons, who is angry about the kids that are under served or schools that dont make the district money, is making a profit what this is about? What a coincidence that performing public schools are in affluent areas with privileged PAC'S. The system is now making people ignore the real issues and fight over non relevant issues (like a recent big election), public vs charter. EVERY parent has the right to try and do best by their child without paying over 20k a year for an elementary or middle school education. It is counterintuitive to point fingers at public vs charter and not recognize who suffers, what real issues get ignored. Someone who supports charter schools im sure supports public schools but for one reason or another makes a decision. Having no options is like having one cell phone provider, one grocery store, one banl, one car maker, etc. Stop blaming the wrong people because I guarantee closing charter schools would fix nothing!
I wonder why there are so many 70 year and older representatives in office and keep getting reelected. How could they possibly have the energy to do their jobs. I'm now in my 60's with no health problems and I know personally how stamina and passion for work can fall off.
Who's responsible for the money and where is it being stashed? That is a tremendous amount of cash to have just sitting somewhere...
