 02/21/2017 - 14:57

Poca gente conoce bien las principales preocupaciones de la comunidad inmigrante. Al margen de la retórica política, no son muchos los que prestan atención a las necesidades de esta importante parte de la población de Filadelfia.

[OP-ED]: ¿Por qué apoyo el Estatus de Santuario de Filadelfia?

 02/21/2017 - 14:10
Siendo una política de resguardo, apoyo al Alcalde Kenney y a su compromiso de hacer de Filadelfia una ciudad segura para los inmigrantes, y me opongo enérgicamente a la controversial SB 10 en Harrisburg.

Cuando mi padre vino a este país desde Cuba, arriesgó su vida y las vidas de su familia tan sólo por un bocado de la libertad que tenemos para ofrecer.

Creo que el valor que tuvo para hacer esa travesía (¡algunos parientes me han contado que se escapó de Cuba con papeles falsos y disfrazado de cura!) cuando pienso en el estatus de Filadelfia como Ciudad Santuario.

[OP-ED]: Why I Support Philadelphia’s Sanctuary City Status

 02/17/2017 - 14:46
As a blanket policy, I stand with Mayor Kenney and his commitment to making Philadelphia a safe city for immigrants.  And I strenuously object to the controversial SB 10 in Harrisburg.

When my father came to this country from Cuba, he risked his life and the lives of his family just for a taste of the freedom we have to offer.

I think of the courage it took for him to make that journey (some relatives have told me he snuck out of Cuba with false papers dressed as a priest!) when I think about Philadelphia’s status as a Sanctuary City.
