"How did it come to pass that an opposition's measure of a president's foreign policy was all or nothing, success or "failure"? The answer is that the political absolutism now normal in Washington arrived at the moment--Nov. 7, 2000--that our politics subordinated even a war against terror to seizing the office of the presidency." - Daniel Henninger - WSJ 11/18/05

Forum on Immigrant Issues to Be Held in Helena

A one-day forum on issues faced by immigrants in Montana will be held Thursday, Aug. 3, at the Red Lion Colonial Hotel in Helena.

The purpose of the forum is to raise awareness and increase understanding of immigrant issues that exist in Montana. It also provides an opportunity for service providers, policymakers, advocates, and the immigrant community to have interactive discussions about the ability of immigrants to access governmental programs for which they are eligible and about the rights immigrants have under civil rights laws.

The forum is sponsored by federal, state, and local agencies, including the U.S. Departments of Health and Human Services and Agriculture, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the Montana Human Rights Network, the Montana Food Bank Network, and the state Department of Public Health and Human Services (DPHHS). The cost to register is $25, which includes breakfast, lunch, and an afternoon snack.

The event will feature a presentation by Dinah Wiley, senior civil rights analyst with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office for Civil Rights. Ms. Wiley will review key federal policies governing immigrant access to public benefit programs, with an emphasis on health and social services programs.

A lunchtime panel discussion will feature representatives from Montana immigrant advocacy groups, including the Montana Legal Services Association, Montana Food Bank Network, and Montana Migrant and Seasonal Farmworker Council.

Participants will talk about what their organizations do and how they work with and for immigrants. They also will discuss the presence of immigrants in Montana, the fact that immigrants have rights to receive certain services, and how their organizations have improved the quality of life of the immigrants with whom they work.

Breakout sessions will address:

• Medicaid
• Racial and ethnic health disparities
• Mexican Consulate
• Housing/energy assistance
• Limited English proficiency
• Food assistance
• Immigration
• Domestic violence
• Labor/employment

During the morning session, Salvador Jimenez, Consul of Mexico in Salt Lake City, and Anna Whiting-Sorrell, policy adviser to Gov. Brian Schweitzer, will provide opening remarks.

To register, contact Brenda Falconer, DPHHS, at 406-444-7056 or bfalconer@mt.gov. The deadline to register is July 31.

For more information, contact Emily Prehm at 1-800-368-1019 or 303-844-7893, Emily.Prehm@hhs.gov or Hyla Schreurs at 1-800-368-1019 or 303-844-7508 Hyla.Schreurs@hhs.gov, at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office for Civil Rights.

What they should be saying is illegal alien invaders, not immigrants. Notice the programs they will be discussing, those are programs the brain dead in this country say illegal aliens cannot access.

How can they even discuss labor/employment when that is AGAINST THE LAW! They are also not entitled to Medicaid, so what is there to discuss here? If you don't think this is about illegal alien invaders from Mexico than ask yourself, why is the Mexican Consolate involved in this "forum"?

I have some more whys for our government:

Why are you allowing the Mexican Consolate to help illegal aliens open bank accounts and get home loans? You would think giving a home loan to someone who faces deportation would be a high risk loan. Do they have some kind of assurances from our government?
Why do they allow them to give out consular cards for id or help illegals civily sue USA citizens and steal their land?

Why are they allowing these "forums" around the country?
