President Bush Wednesday urged Congress to pass the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act of 2007 [HR 493 text, PDF], promoting genetic testing for disease by making genetic discrimination illegal. In a speech [text] at the National Institutes of Health [official website], Bush said “If a person is willing to share his or her genetic information, it is important that that information not be exploited in improper ways – and Congress can pass good legislation to prevent that from happening. In other words, we want medical research to go forward without an individual fearing of personal discrimination.”

Genetic nondiscrimination legislation was passed unanimously by the Senate in 2003 but failed in the House of Representatives. Representative Louise Slaughter (D-NY) [official website] reintroduced the latest bill this week. If passed, it will establish “a national and uniform basic standard is necessary to fully protect the public from discrimination and allay their concerns about the potential for discrimination, thereby allowing individuals to take advantage of genetic testing , technologies, research, and new therapies.” The New York Times has more.

East Meadow School District Discriminates Against Deaf Student Because of Service Dog January 10, 2007

The standoff between a Nassau County school district and a family whose deaf son wants to take a service dog to school continued yesterday, despite a budding state human rights investigation into the controversy.
East Meadow School District officials appeared to dig in their heels after the state Division of Human Rights began an investigation into the district’s refusal to allow John Cave, 14, to bring the dog, Simba, to W. Tresper Clarke High School. John, who has limited hearing with the aid of cochlear implants, was rebuffed yesterday for the fourth consecutive school day.

The state investigation was ordered last week after news reports about the dispute between the boy’s parents, John and Nancy Cave, and district officials. Kumiki Gibson, commissioner-designate of the human rights division, said she hoped the investigation can be completed quickly, though she conceded it could take several months.

Gibson, who took office last week, said the investigation is the first initiated by the agency in more than a decade. Normally, the division acts on complaints filed by the public.

“It seemed like there was a violation,” Gibson said. “As soon as we found out about it, we started an investigation. … It just jumped out at me as the kind of thing that our long list of laws calls on us to investigate.”

Minutemen driven by law, not racism leader says December 10, 2006

Before Ed Hayes explains what the Minuteman Civil Defense Corps is, he wants everyone to know what it’s not.

“The Minuteman is not about race, but a nation of laws,” he said. “It’s about enforcing laws, which our country is not doing.”

He made it clear upfront that racists were not welcome: “This is not a racist organization,” he told a gathering of 18 people Saturday.

Hayes, a retired law enforcement officer and Kansas director of the Minuteman Civil Defense Corps, led a meeting in Hutchinson to inform the public about the organization.

Hayes also hoped to find a local person to head a Hutchinson chapter.

The group aims to educate people about illegal immigration and to assist law enforcement in identifying those violating immigration laws.

The group does not target Mexicans but any person in the country illegally, Hayes said.

The ACLU’s Illegal Alien Hidden Agenda: Seeks Non-Discrimination For Illegal Aliens In The Workplace November 5, 2006

I was going to talk about the dishonest argument the ACLU made in its attack on Hazelton, PA for trying to crackdown on illegal immigration problems. They argued that it was not the place of small communities to create laws fashioned to their own unique problems on illegal immigration, but the Federal government’s responsibility. Of course this argument does not reflect the ACLU’s true beliefs on the topic. If the Federal government created a similar law as Hazelton the ACLU would find a different argument to oppose it. The argument was, however, good enough to convince a Clinton appointed judge to temporarily block their ordinances.

I was going to show the ACLU’s real agenda for illegal immigrant. Well, they just showed a lot of it themselves in press release.

ACLU

The American Civil Liberties Union, the National Employment Law Project and the Transnational Legal Clinic at the University of Pennsylvania School of Law today filed a petition urging the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights to find the United States in violation of its universal human rights obligations by failing to protect millions of undocumented workers from exploitation and discrimination in the workplace.

The ACLU is basing its argument on stating the United States has violated a vague International Human Rights Treaty signed in 1948 called the AMERICAN DECLARATION OF THE RIGHTS AND DUTIES OF MAN. This treaty states that, “Every person has the right to work, under proper conditions, and to follow his vocation freely, insofar as existing conditions of employment permit.” As I said, the treaty is vague. Nowhere in the treaty does it define what proper conditions are, however another section does state that the duty of every person to obey the law of the country in which he may be.

Current immigration law provides criminal sanctions for employers who hire illegal aliens. In other words it is a crime to hire an illegal alien…period. The ACLU tries to hide this fact by omitting the word “illegal” and replacing it with “undocumented”. Illegal aliens are criminals and hiring a criminal to work is a crime also. In essence the ACLU is attempting to grant the same rights and benefits that a law abiding citizen enjoys to international criminals.

The False Cry of Racism Against Those Following The Law October 3, 2006

A local group fighting for immigrant rights is calling for a boycott of two nationally known companies. Dunkin Donuts and Applebee’s are accused of discriminating against immigrant workers whose names don’t match their social security numbers.
On the 10th anniversary of what immigration reform advocates call stringent changes to immigration laws, supports of the legalization of the undocumented are once again speaking out — only this time, they are hoping not only to mobilize their vote, but also use their buying power to force the kind of change they want.

“The social security administration says it plans to send out 8 million no match letters,” said Martino Unzuerta, Chicago Workers Collaborative.

//

The initial purpose of the social security administration’s ‘no match’ letter was to credit workers unclaimed social security earnings. The agency routinely sends out ‘no match’ letters to a company when employees’ names and social security numbers don’t match possibly because of a spelling error, omission of information or a unreported name change. But immigration activists say some employers are now aggressively using the letters to fire immigrant workers.

China Detains Lawyers Of Activist Who Exposed China’s Forced Abortions And Sterilizations August 19, 2006

Authorities detained three lawyers for a blind Chinese activist who was due to go on trial after documenting the accounts of villagers who complained of forced abortions, one of the lawyers said Friday. Other activists already had been put under house arrest in an apparent effort to keep them away from the trial of Chen Guangcheng, due to start later Friday in eastern China.

Legal scholars in China and abroad criticized the detention of Chen’s lawyers as an attempt to interfere in his trial. He faces criminal charges that his supporters say were brought to punish him for his activism.

“This trial is a farce,” said Jerome Cohen, an American lawyer and expert on the Chinese legal system.

Also Friday, state media reported that another Beijing lawyer who had attended an earlier court date for Chen was detained on criminal charges, but it wasn’t immediately clear whether it was connected to Chen’s case.

Chen, 34, is accused of illegal assembly and intent to damage public property.

He was arrested after recording accounts by villagers in Shandong province who said local officials forced them to undergo late-term abortions and sterilizations in order to meet birth control limits. Such practices are illegal, but local officials often resort to drastic measures for fear of being punished for failing to meet birth quotas.
