Coping with Harvey and its aftermath

HOUSTON – (Aug. 31, 2017) – Flood water eventually will recede from Houston and its surrounding areas, but the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey will remain fresh for those impacted by the storm. While moving forward after a disaster like Harvey is difficult, one Baylor College of Medicine expert has offered his advice on how to cope with these challenges. “The psychological effects of a disaster like Harvey can be numerous, and usually there are two populations that you will see,” said Dr. Asim Shah, professor and executive vice chair for community psychiatry in the Menninger Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Baylor. “The first is the population of people who have a pre-existi

LATINO LEADERS APPLAUD TEXAS JUDGE FOR TEMPORARY BLOCK ON RACIAL PROFILING LAW

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The National Hispanic Leadership Agenda, a coalition of 45 of the nation’s preeminent Latino advocacy organizations, applauds the decision by Chief U.S. District Judge Orlando Garcia to grant a partial preliminary injunction in the Texas SB4 case, preventing the bulk of the legislation from going into effect on September 1, 2017. The ruling recognizes the validity of the cities and organizations that filed the lawsuit that raised concerns about its constitutionality. Texas SB4 is a racial profiling law that would lead to rights violations, economic harm, and family separation and would have turned every local law enforcement official into part of Trump’s deportation machin

NALEO Applauds Federal Court for Blocking Implementation of Key Provisions of SB 4 Law in Texas

Implementation of SB 4 would result in deep and lasting scars for millions of Latinos and immigrants living in the heart of Texas Washington, D.C. – The National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials (NALEO) today issued a statement following U.S. District Judge Orlando Garcia’s decision to temporarily halt implementation of key provisions of the SB 4 law in Texas: “NALEO is pleased to see that the harmful and anti-immigrant SB 4 legislation that was passed by the Texas State legislature and signed into law by Governor Greg Abbott has been blocked from moving forward. “Enforcement of the SB 4 law would have a chilling effect throughout the state, resulting in a climat

BIPARTISAN MAYORS CALL ON TRUMP TO PROTECT DREAMERS AND CONTINUE DACA PROGRAM

Washington, DC — In response to reports that the Trump Administration may soon end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, bipartisan mayors representing the U.S. Conference of Mayors (USCM) called on the President to continue the program and allow young undocumented immigrants who came to the U.S. as children to continue to live, work and study in the U.S. and contribute to the nation’s economy. USCM Latino Alliance Chair Mayor Eric Garcetti of Los Angeles, Immigration Reform Task Force Co-Chairs Mayors Jorge Elorza of Providence, RI and Tom Tait of Anaheim, CA, and USCM Trustee Mayor John Giles of Mesa, AZ urged President Trump to keep the successful DACA program intact

Latino Leaders Condemn White Supremacist Violence as a Threat to Democracy

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The National Hispanic Leadership Agenda, a coalition of 45 of the nation’s preeminent Latino advocacy organizations, joins civil rights organizations, legislators, advocates and cities nationwide in condemning the violence that ensued as a result of white supremacists’ actions this weekend. NHLA offers condolences to the families and friends of the victims of this violence and stands in solidarity with those who denounce and fight against the racism and bigotry that are driving acts of hate.

Hispanic National Bar Association Pulls Conference Out of Texas

WASHINGTON, DC -- The Hispanic National Bar Association announced today that it is pulling its 2020 Corporate Counsel Conference from El Paso, Texas in response to the Texas state government’s passage of Senate Bill 4 (“SB4”). Dubbed an “anti-sanctuary” law, SB4 forces local law enforcement to act as de facto immigration enforcement officers and gives them the power to detain and question an individual about their citizenship status solely based on whether the officer thinks that the person “looks” undocumented. In the view of the HNBA, this legislation “potentially subjects all who live in–or pass through–Texas to racial profiling, discrimination, and unlawful due process violations simply
