Attention Undocumented Immigrants: Prerna Lal (former law student) Not Giving Prudent Social Security Adviceby Dee Dee Garcia Blase on Sep. 19, 2013, under Legal Immigration Reform, Mexican-American / Chicano political activism, Mexican-Americans and Chicanos are patriotic, veteran voters
There are many of us Chicano / Mexican-American immigration reform activists who have been putting a significant amount of time and resources in pushing for legal Comprehensive Immigration Reform (CIR) and shedding light on good immigrants. It is disturbing to see radical and extremist immigrants from other ethnic groups (who are not yet licensed to practice law) give poor advice to other immigrants which obviously includes Mexicans because Mexicans are the ones who are especially targeted with regard to the Mexican border.
Chicano / Mexican-American watchdog registered voters are especially protective of how our fellow brothers within the Mexican community are treated. As an American voter, we have a responsibility to influence public policy, and many of us are aware that it is harder for Mexican immigrants to be granted asylum.
According to the New York Times:
Homeland Security Department officials are quick to point out that such requests from Mexican citizens are rarely granted, noting that, on average, 91 percent are denied.
Therefore, we take issue when a Fiji or an Iranian immigrant (leaders receiving money and donations from activism via an LLC), gives poor advice to the Mexicans … encouraging self-deportation when the leaders themselves will not take their own advice. Why is the Iranian and Fijian immigrant receiving monies but not giving it to Mexicans like Lizbeth Mateo who clearly need it? Ms. Mateo (follower) told us she was not getting paid for the activism work she does yet she was encouraged to “test” the system and our laws thereby bogging down our already bloated prisons who are profiting from detaining immigrants and wasting more American tax payer monies.
If they are an LLC, and they have extremely young activists who are in their teens ‘following them’ — why aren’t those teenagers getting paid for their activism work and gas? Indeed Prerna has publicly bragged before about her LLC reported income so her $600,000.00 home would get out of foreclosure when a loan modification was being conducted.
Are there any labor laws getting violated?
Why isn’t the DreamActivist LLC listing Mexican leadership when they know most of the immigrants getting deported are of Mexican descent? What percentage of their LLC is Mexican? Is it proportionate to ethnic groups who are most targeted? It is common knowledge that leadership needs to arise from the community being affected the most. Indeed it is the Mexicans who have suffered the most because the majority of the immigrants getting deported are of Mexican descent.
The below is a print screen by Prerna Lal (seeking to be admitted into the California State Bar Association by the end of this year) where she discusses fake social security numbers when an anonymous person asks a question. I believe the American Bar Association needs to see who is attempting to practice law in our American judicial system. As an American-born voting citizen, I do not support folks who encourage law breaking to practice law, and I want to caution all immigrants NOT to take Prerna Lal’s advice on fake Social Security Numbers.
“If it turns out that the number belongs to a real person,” Justice Alito wrote, “two years will be added to the defendant’s sentence, but if the defendant is lucky and the number does not belong to another person, the statute is not violated.”
Another concern that I have has to do with Prerna’s comments given on a DreamActivist.org story with regard to “Tips on How to Lie Successfully” where she states she will lie for employment and to screw over immigration officers.
The Social Security issue is precisely why we need Republicans to support the Comprehensive Legal Immigration Reform this year, so that we can avoid the above situations. The above views of a Fijiian and Iranian immigrant-led organization do not represent views of American-born voters of Mexican descent.
The Gang of Eight 2013 Legal immigration reform bill is a major step forward in securing our Nation because only after everyone is registered and documented will we know who is in our Nation and where we can find them. We know that once we fix the broken immigration system, and once we document all immigrants — then they can feel safe to help law enforcement agencies to target criminal activity without the fear of deportation when they report suspicious activity to the law enforcement authorities. Therefore, bringing the immigrants out of the shadows will only strengthen our Nation’s security.
