In California, the passage in 1994 of Proposition 187, a Republican-backed ballot measure to deny public services to undocumented immigrants, caused a fierce backlash against Republicans among Latinos. And experts say the party is still feeling the effects. During the recent round of street protests around the United States against an immigration bill passed by the Republican-controlled House, HR 4437, some demonstrators have warned there will be consequences at the polls this time, too. The reality is that this community will eventually get citizenship, and we already know who we won t be voting for, said Dagoberto Zavala, 52, an El Salvadoran immigrant at a weekend rally in Orange County. Proposition 187 initially seemed a Republican boon. Gov. Pete Wilson used the immigration issue to boost his 1994 re-election bid, which included an ad showing undocumented immigrants sprinting across the border while an announcer intoned, They keep coming. In a banner year for Republicans, support for Proposition 187 which voters passed helped ensure Wilson s victory and usher in tenuous Republican control over the state Assembly. But Republican became a bad word among Hispanics of all stripes here in California, said Allan Hoffenblum, a Republican analyst in Los Angeles. The only ones who dispute that are in total and complete denial. Wilson s share of the Latino vote plummeted from 47 percent in 1990 to 25 percent in 1994, according to the nonpartisan Field Institute in San Francisco. Meanwhile, the fastgrowing Latino vote has become increasingly important. By 2005, Latinos were one-fifth of the California electorate, up from one-tenth in And they have not been inclined to register Republican. According to the Field Institute, 24 percent of Latinos who registered to vote in California before 1994 registered Republican; only 18 percent of those who registered between 1994 and 2000 went with the Republican Party. California now has an estimated 11.7 million Latinos, representing one-third of the state s population. No Republican candidate for governor or president has won more than 40 percent of California s Latino vote since 1990, according to the Field Poll. Democrats firmly control the Legislature and congressional delegation and all statewide offices except governor and secretary of state. (Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger is the exception that proves the rule; the former action star did not come up through the party ranks, and many consider him a Republican in name only.) Latino allegiance to the Democrats helped the party retake the 80-member Assembly in 1996; the Republican Party has gone from 41 seats in 1994 to 32 today. Proposition 187 would have denied public education, social services and nonemergency health care to undocumented immigrants. It also would have required teachers and doctors to report suspected undocumented immigrants to federal authorities. A federal judged blocked enforcement of it and later declared it unconstitutional. Democratic Gov. Gray Davis, elected in 1998, refused to defend the measure in court. Wilson defends his support for Proposition 187 and disputes the argument that it damaged his party. When you are elected to office, you ought to do what you believe is right, the former governor said in an interview. If you do the right thing, I suspect, you will profit politically. The California experience is on the mind of prominent Republicans such as Ed Gillespie, the party s former national chairman, who has urged the party to embrace Senate legislation that would create a guestworker program and the prospect of citizenship for undocumented immigrants already here. A House-passed bill (HR 4437), in contrast, would classify undocumented immigrants as felons and stretch a wall across the U.S.-Mexican border, almost 700 miles in length. Gillespie noted that the Latino vote is increasingly becoming decisive in states such as New Mexico, Florida, and Colorado. Mishandling the immigration debate today could result in the Republican Party struggling in these states and others in the same way it now does in California, Gillespie wrote in a Wall Street Journal opinion piece. Nevertheless, all but three of California s 19 Republican representatives voted for the House bill, rejecting comparisons to Proposition 187 and saying their constituents are galled by undocumented immigration. Most Americans sit back and say, This is ridiculous. They come here illegally and then they take advantage of our laws, said Rep. Gary Miller. Overwhelmingly people want something done. The Democrats see political advantage in the debate. It just amazes me that the Republicans don t pay attention to history, said California Democratic Party Chairman Art Torres.

3 April/abril 12, Page 3 Sen. Clinton says immigration bill HR 4437 would make her, Jesús criminals By DEVLIN BARRETT Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON, D.C. (AP): Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-NY) said April 5 th that an immigration bill approved in the House of Representatives (on Dec. 16, 2005, HR 4437) would make her and her aides criminals for their work on behalf of New York constituents. Clinton s comments are her latest salvo against the Republican-authored House bill that would penalize anyone who knowingly assists or encourages illegal immigrants to remain in the country. The bill, which passed the House in December, also makes it a felony to be in the country illegally. Speaking to the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce on Wednesday, Clinton, touted as a potential Democratic presidential candidate in 2008, said her work for New York constituents could fall afoul of the bill since many are immigrants. I realize I would be a criminal, too. My staff would be criminal. We help people with all kinds of problems, said Clinton. Democratic critics and the Catholic Church say such language would make even humanitarian assistance to an illegal immigrant a crime; the bill s authors dismiss the claim as an absurd attempt to defeat the bill. Clinton has, over the past few weeks, stepped out strongly against the bill as senators debate varying proposals, including setting up a guest worker program as supported by President George W. Bush and affording citizenship to most of those in the country illegally. Senators are seeking a strong bill that would allow them more leverage in bargaining with House lawmakers. Last month, Clinton lashed out at the House bill, saying it was mean-spirited and would probably criminalize even Jesús himself. The New York Democrat continued that offensive Wednesday, urging Latino business leaders to help defeat such measures by resisting what she called misinformation in the emotionally charged immigration debate. We need to help educate the entire American public. Hillary Rodham Clinton We need to put the face of America and hardworking Americans on this debate, she said. Over the past several of weeks, tens of thousands of people have protested the bill around the country, staging mass rallies/ marches and school walkouts in California, Arizona, Texas, Colorado, Washington, D.C., Wisconsin, Kentucky, Illinois, Michigan, and Ohio and shutting down minority-owned business in Georgia. Numerous city councils have passed resolutions in opposition to HR 4437, including Detroit, Grand Rapids, Toledo, Cleveland, and Columbus in Michigan and Ohio. Rico de La Prensa contributed to this report. Employers say they need a guestworker program By JUAN A. LOZANO Associated Press Writer (AP): Every year, Joanne Harden has to find people to replace the 30 seasonal workers she employs at her San Antonio-area nursery when they leave to visit their homes in México. And every year she faces the same problem, with maybe one of every 10 local residents she hires working out. Getting the workers (legally) from México, those are the workers who have a fantastic work ethic. If I had five applicants in front of me and could hire only two, I would pick the guys from México and would pay them more, said Harden, who owns Mortellaro s Nursery in Schertz. Employers like Harden say they support federal legislation that would create guestworker programs allowing citizens from other countries to fill the jobs they say U.S.-Americans don t want to do. One guestworker proposal pending in the U.S. Senate would create a temporary visa to allow as many as 400,000 new foreign workers into the country for up to six years, then allow them to apply for legal permanent residence. Supporters fear that measure may not have enough support. Roberto Córtez, 47, a U.S. citizen who immigrated from Guanajuato, México, said the program could end undocumented immigrants and their employers fears of the authorities. Córtez, who was in the U.S. illegally for 10 years, vividly remembers the day immigration authorities raided a tree-cutting company where he worked when he first arrived in Houston in Immigration would arrest the workers who were in four of five trucks out in neighborhoods. Each truck had up to six people, plus the supervisor, he said in Spanish. There were times when they would even take the supervisor. This was a difficult thing. Marilyn Good, spokeswoman for the Texas Nursery and Landscape Association, said current guestworker programs covering agricultural workers or seasonal workers are too bureaucratic and are limited. We need more access to workers, Good said. Employers don t want to ignore the law. They don t want fines. They don t want to have (immigration authorities) take their workers in the middle of the season. Other industries, such as construction and hotels, face similar shortages. Scott Joslove, president and chief executive of the Texas Hotel and Lodging Association, said hotels in places like South Padre Island, Port Aransas and Galveston have large demands for seasonal workers, especially in peak seasons such as spring break. It s just difficult to find workers in our industry, he said. We ve had to go overseas to find workers in many cases. The AFL-CIO, the nation s largest labor organization, says guestworker proposals lower wages and create a second, lower class of employees. Workers should have full rights and a real voice in our democracy, which no guestworker program can ever guarantee, AFL-CIO President John Sweeney said in a statement last week. We see no valid reason why employers should be able to fill permanent jobs with temporary workers. But Harden called big labor s criticism hogwash and said it doesn t apply to her business. When someone is here 30 days, we give them a raise. At 90 days, we pay 100 percent of employees health insurance, she said. Tamara Abdulovic, 28, an immigrant from Bosnia, said coming to the United States gave her the opportunity to go to college, earn a finance degree and work in the banking industry. I think there is more to be done. The immigrants and refugees we deal with are coming from different cultures. All of these groups require we understand their culture. That is something we can improve upon, she said.

(AP): Some Michigan students from non-english-speaking homes are taking tests this month to determine how they are progressing with their new language. The English Language Proficiency Assessment, or ELPA, is Michigan s first statewide test of English proficiency. It is required by the federal No Child Left Behind Act. About 58,000 students are scheduled to be tested by April 28. Melissa Lazarin, an education reform analyst with the Latino civil rights group National Council of La Raza, said the federal law is helping children struggling to learn English get the attention they need. One of the most beneficial things it s done, it s really put a spotlight on these kids _ kids who traditionally have been ignored or neglected, she told Booth Newspapers for a Wednesday story. About 40 percent of English language learners in Michigan speak Spanish and 25 percent speak Arabic. The rest speak more than 100 other languages. The testing is supposed to be completed by the end of the month, but some districts are worried about meeting the deadline.

7 April/abril 12, 2006 Congresswoman Kaptur chastises Delphi for seeking voidance of labor contracts Last Friday, Delphi filed a motion in a U.S. bankruptcy court asking the assigned judge to void its labor contracts. U.S. Congresswoman Marcy Kaptur (OH-9) delivered the following address on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives last Thursday on the condition of the Delphi workers: Mr. Speaker, tonight I rise on behalf of both current and retired Delphi workers in my district and around our Nation who are suffering from the financial woes of the largest automotive parts manufacturer in the country. Unfortunately, these Delphi workers are but the latest victims in a series of tragedies for the American worker. What we are currently witnessing, the bankruptcy and subsequent reorganization of Delphi is the fallout from regrettable trade agreements like NAFTA, and CAFTA, and the accompanying influence of some elected officials who are for globalized big business at the expense of the American people, big business built on low wages, no benefits, and no worker safety. Job loss is also due to major auto firms leadership and executive boards who failed to make fuel efficient vehicles that Americans and the world want to buy. So our workers suffer. Delphi s most recent proposal is to lower wages from $27 an hour to $22 an hour through 2007, and then to $16.50 thereafter. This would be a 40 percent cut in middleclass wages. On Friday, Delphi filed a motion in bankruptcy court asking a judge to void its labor contracts. But how can you ask American workers to compete with a country like Japan which keeps its markets closed, the second largest market in the world? How can you ask our workers to compete with poverty level wages in Mexico and China? And how can you ask our workers to compete when big Marcy Kaptur firms outsource everything to avoid paying workers what they justly deserve? Late last year, Congressman George Miller, ranking member of the Education and Workforce Committee, took the initiative to hold hearings on this subject. I want to make sure this evening that many of the workers voices from my district are heard, like Mary Pat Bishoff of Marblehead, who said, My husband is 49 and has 32 years in at Delphi. He got sick and has been off since October. With only 5 years left on our first mortgage and 8 years on the second, we had to refinance and take them up to 30 years just to survive. This will force us to pay $ a month instead of the $ we were paying. We are faced with a decision as so many others are, should he retire and risk losing his pension? Or, if he stays and they cut pay, that means sick pay will also go down and we will lose our home. What kind of a choice is that? David Saylor of Port Clinton said, I retired from the GM assembly plant at Lordstown, Ohio in December of 1987, with the promise I would have complete health care coverage for life. Well, I will now have to pay $21 monthly, and that will greatly impact me since I took an early retirement and do not have the full 30-year retirement benefit. Raymond Stahl of Vermilion, Ohio said, They are shutting down the plant I work at and are moving it. Now I am out of a good paying job, La Prensa Northern Ohio Page 7 and at my age it is going to be hard to even get another job let alone one that pays so well. America comes first, not overseas. Andrew Briscar, another Ohioan, said, I worked very hard for 20 years at the Delphi Packard Electric to get to a point where I can make a comfortable living for myself and my son. Now Delphi Packard Electric wants to cut my pay and benefits to a level that a young man or woman might make just coming out of high school. Mr. Speaker, workers who dedicate years of service to a company should be able to count on a decent retirement and measure of economic security. This Congress must step up with meaningful pension reform to help secure pensions and encourage companies to continue providing them. The Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation should have been re-infused with funds long ago with its $23 billion deficit, and we ought to be renegotiating trade agreements like NAFTA and CAFTA that continue to cash out good American jobs. Opponents said these jobs would go south, and they surely have, with GM now being México s being largest employer. And it is no surprise that companies like Delphi, GM s biggest supplier, are following them. I have spoken with Delphi management, and our delegation is doing everything possible to keep these Delphi jobs in America, but we need a majority of Members here dedicated to that purpose. I have invited Chairman Steve Miller of Delphi to tour the Sandusky Delphi facility and to meet with key employees and public officials, and he has yet to take me up on that offer. Mr. Speaker, I would encourage the Members to sign on to the Balancing Trade Act of 2005 which I have introduced to ask our trade ambassador to come back to us with recommen- The Lucas County Hispanic Latino Democratic Caucus met last Saturday to discuss a variety of issues including the May 2nd election of Taylor Balderas, Toledo City Councilperson for District 3.

8 Página 8 La Prensa Central Ohio April/abril 12, 2006 LEON celebrates its 4 th Awards dinner with inspiring speech by Silvia Mata By Marivel Aguirre-Aranda, La Prensa Reporter The Latino Empowerment Outreach Network (LEON) celebrated its 4 th Annual Community Awards Dinner and Silent Auction last Friday at Villa Milano in Columbus, Ohio. León is Spanish for lion. The celebration began with a reception and silent auction. The reception allowed attendees to mingle while the auction offered them the opportunity to bid on some very tempting items. The auctioned items were donated by area businesses such as La Plaza Tapatia, CASA of Franklin County, and South-Western City Schools. Some of the auction items included tickets to a Columbus Crew soccer game, gift cards to La Plaza Tapatia, a case of Girl Scout cookies, and a Peruvian mask. The auction was followed by dinner. Ezra C. Escudero, the director of Ohio s Commission on Hispanic/Latino Affairs (OCHLA), read proclamation notes from Ohio Gov- Shown above are: Elizabeth Martínez, the Program Coordinator of the Hispanic Mentoring Initiative in Central Ohio, and William Meléndez, president of LULAC. ernor Bob Taft and Columbus Mayor Michael Coleman. Paula Brooks read the proclamation notes from the Franklin County Board of Commissioners. LEON was praised by Director Escudero as the model organization of how to grow, develop, and serve the community. The special guest of the evening was Silvia Mata, a third year student at the Ohio State University. Mata is the editor-in-chief of the newsletter Field of Dreams. Mata was accepted to OSU through the College Assistance Migrant Program, or CAMP, and she spoke of her experience as the daughter of migrant parents who followed crops to pick throughout the United States. Mata spoke poignantly of her parents hard work and her struggle to get to college. Her parents reluctance to let her attend college was because they did not want her to be disappointed. Once she was accepted at OSU she spoke of the difficulty she faced due to lack of encouragement. She said she felt alone being a migrant and being Latina, especially because while growing up education was never mentioned to her. Once she was accepted to OSU, teachers and people who supported her sent her s and letters telling her I knew you could make it! and she wondered why they couldn t have said that to her from the beginning why wait until she struggled so much to get there. She emphasized that children need encouragement and somebody to believe in them. Her story makes it obvious that students find it more difficult to fulfill their potential when they are constantly being told they can t do any better than their parents. In her case, she was able to rise above those challenges and she has become an example for other students to emulate. Mata urged the audience never to give up on individuals who need our help, to tell them that you believe in them because they don t always know even if you do. Medical assistants to meet The 49 th Annual Convention of the Ohio State Society of Medical Assistants (OSSMA) will meet in Toledo on April 20 23, More than 150 delegates from around the state of Ohio will attend the convention at The Dana Conference Center and Hilton-Toledo.

Elizabeth won the Youth Award for her work to develop and expand mentoring programs for Latino youth of all ages.

9 April/abril 12, 2006 Apply for a CHOICE. It s EASY! Page 9 Over one million people rally for immigrant/civil rights, in over 90 cities throughout the United States (Continued from Page 1) Shouting Si Se Puede! Spanish for Yes, we can! and a mantra for César E. Chávez and the United Farm Workers and the Farm Labor Organizing Committee the marchers crammed into the downtown streets. They included families pushing strollers with their children and ice cream vendors who placed U.S.- American flags on their carts. Many wore white clothing to symbolize peace. Police estimated the crowd in Dallas at 350,000 to 500,000. There were no reports of violence. It was among numerous demonstrations that drew thousands of protesters Sunday and Monday, and earlier, in Texas, New Mexico, Minnesota, Michigan, Ohio, Iowa, Alabama, Utah, Oregon, Idaho, and California, and even Washington, D.C., where some 100,000 rallied on Monday. If we don t protest they ll never hear us, said Oscar Cruz, 23, a construction worker who marched among the estimated 50,000 in San Diego, CA. Cruz, who came without documentation to the U.S. in 2003, said he had feared a crackdown but felt emboldened by the large marches across the country in recent weeks. In Birmingham, Ala., demonstrators marched along the same streets where civil rights activists clashed with police in the 1960s and rallied at a park where a statue of Martin Luther King Jr. stands as a reminder of the fight for equal rights and the violence that once plagued the city. We ve got to get back in touch with the Statue of Liberty, said the Rev. Lawton Higgs, a United Methodist pastor and activist. We ve got to get back in touch with the civil rights movement, because that s what this is about. Organizers in St. Paul, MN, were surprised by the crowd police estimated 30,000 calling for change at a rally at the state Capitol. Some rallies drew counter-demonstrators, but those crowds were minuscule compared to the mammoth crowds in support of immigration reform. In Salt Lake City, Jerry Owens, 59, a Navy veteran from Midway wearing a blue Minuteman T-shirt and camouflage pants, held a yellow Don t Tread on Me flag. I think it s real sad because these people are really saying it s OK to be illegal aliens, Owens said. What Americans are saying is Yes, come here. But come here legally. And I think that s the big problem. Sunday s demonstrations came ahead of nationwide protests on Monday, April 10, a signal that what began as a string of disparate events attracting hundreds of thousands of people has become more coordinated. We don t have a leader like Martin Luther King or César Chávez, but this is now a national immigrant rights movement, said Joshua Hoyt, director of the Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights, which has helped organize Chicagoarea rallies, where over 350,000 rallied. Activists say the U.S. Senate s decision last Friday not to push a bill that would have given many undocumented immigrants a chance at citizenship is neither a cause for celebration nor a lost opportunity it s a chance to regroup. And that s what they plan to do at demonstrations from Florida to Oregon that include school walkouts and marches in over 90 cities. If you are seeking a private education for your family and worry about the financial commitment, there is help available. If your family meets eligibility requirements, and you live in Lucas, Wood or Fulton County, your children in grades K-8 could qualify for scholarships worth up to 75% of next year s tuition. To apply, call the Northwest Ohio Scholarship Fund at , ext. 219, or visit Scholarship application deadline is June 1, Religious groups nationwide have been coordinating the protests in recent weeks, along with dozens of unions, schools, and civil rights organizations. Part of their goal has been to recruit more Asian and Middle Eastern immigrants. Up until recently, most protesters have been Latino and high school or university students. Many groups had been preparing to rally since December, when the House passed a bill [HR 4437] to build over 700 miles of walls along the U.S.-México border; making criminals of people who helped undocumented immigrants; and making it a felony, rather than a civil infraction, to be in the country without documentation. HR 4437 also authorizes local police to act as immigration agents, a provision which many police organizations oppose as being too burdensome in their efforts to combat local issues such as crime. Those mostly local and regional efforts, supported by popular Spanish-language disc jockeys and newspapers such as La Prensa, quickly converted into national plans after hundreds of thousands of people demonstrated in dozens of cities last month, culminating March 25 with a 500,000-person rally in Los Angeles. Different organizers have different agendas, but they do agree on the need to convert energy from protests into massive voter registration drives. Voter registration and citizenship education initiatives are set to begin in several states after a Day Without An Immigrant campaign planned for May 1, an event that asks immigrants nationwide to stay home from work and school, and refrain from buying U.S. products.

Marches will only get you so far, said Armando Navarro, coordinator of the National Alliance for Human Rights, a network of Latino activist groups in Southern California. There has to be an electoral component to get the Republicans out of the majority. Toledo-based FLOC hosts an annual March for Justice, which, this year, is scheduled for April 12 th. FLOC march and rally on April 12 According to event media coordinator, John B. Orozco, Concerned community members and area teens have been meeting since January 26 th to plan the march with FLOC. This march is designed to call attention to the need for organization of mistreated immigrants and farm laborers. The students are planning to make this year s march a walkathon designed to raise money to support the families of laborers, who have died in the fields. Students from area high schools, universities and community members will gather on the corner of South and Broadway Avenues on the 12 th of April at noon, for a march to Golden Rule Park where a rally will be held. Ally speakers include: Andrew Jung with attorney David Leopold from the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA), Pastor LaBoy and Pastor Rodas from the Cleveland Association of Latino Pastors, and Taylor Balderas, District Three Council Member. According to FLOC s press release of the April 12 event: The issue of immigration does not exclusively apply to Latinos. Andrew Jung is a prime example of other people living here in the U.S. that have experienced the hardships of the immigration laws. Andrew, a freshman at Emmanuel Baptist High School, is a student who knows all to well how the present U.S. policies on immigration can tear families apart. His father and mother are natives of South Korea who were recently deported for over staying a visa. Andrew is an American citizen, however, and had the option of going with his parents to Korea or staying here in the U.S. His parents decided it was best for him to remain here while they took on the challenge of adjusting to living in a different and newly developed country. Andrew has found living a world away from his family difficult. Cases such as these are why FLOC hosts its Annual March for Justice.

10 Prize Página 10 April/abril 12, 2006 Carla s Corner Por Carla Soto, Entertainment Editor Michel Camilo y Tomatito graban con Juan Luis Guerra Por RAMON ALMANZAR SANTO DOMINGO (AP): El pianista dominicano Michel Camilo tendrá este año un nuevo acercamiento al flamenco y al guitarrista español José Fernández Torres, más conocido como Tomatito, al grabar un disco que lanzarán en mayo. La producción musical tendrá el lujo de unir a sus compases, al cantautor dominicano Juan Luis Guerra, con quien grabaron una nueva versión de su clásico tema Amor de conuco. Guerra y Camilo se juntaron en enero pasado en la celebración del aniversario número 60 de la Escuela de Música de Berklee, en Boston, donde ambos estudiaron música, por separado, durante la juventud. A raíz de la presentación, Camilo le sugirió a su compatriota grabar juntos Amor de conuco, propuesta que se materializó hace un mes en Nueva York y a la que se unió Tomatito. Juan Luis vocalizó un poco más de lo que estamos acostumbrados y el tema es una maravilla, afirmó Camilo en declaraciones a la AP, previo a su concierto del viernes en el principal teatro dominicano. La primera parte de la historia musical entre Camilo y Tomatito sucedió en el 2000 cuando ambos grabaron Spain, que lo llevó a una gira mundial y le granjeó un Grammy Latino al Mejor álbum de jazz latino.

Pasaron seis años desde que grabamos Spain, que aún tiene vigencia, y es una gran alegría unirnos de nuevo, comentó Camilo, que no reveló el título del CD. Camilo promociona a la vez su más reciente álbum Rhapsody in blue, un homenaje al pianista neoyorquino George Gershwin ( ), considerado uno de los músicos geniales del siglo XX. Aquí está todo lo que escribió Gershwin: nota por nota, sostuvo Camilo, quien se declaró su ferviente admirador ``porque representa el romper barreras, el que caigan los muros entre una música y otra. Camilo definió a Gershwin como una figura que se introdujo en muchos mundos musicales: hizo música para cine, escribió obras para Broadway, gran fanático del jazz y en ese sentido representa un gran ejemplo de lo que yo llamo un hombre de renacimiento. El pianista dominicano tocó el viernes en el Teatro Nacional, donde tenía siete años que no se presentaba con su trío, que completan los cubanos Dafnis Prieto en la batería y Charles Flores en el contrabajo.

Rocío Jurado sale del hospital MADRID (AP): La cantante española Rocío Jurado, quien combate un cáncer del páncreas, salió el sábado de un hospital de Madrid. La televisión española mostró a la artista cuando se la llevaban del hospital Monte Principe en Madrid para su casa en los suburbios de la capital española. El hospital difundió un comunicado diciendo que la artista se había sobrepuesto a una aguda falla hepática y a una infección que le había surgido esta semana, y que la condicion general de la paciente había mejorado.

Quizás una nueva compañera de cuarto se quiera mudar contigo, o instales un nuevo equipo, o hasta tengas la posibilidad de mudarte a un sitio más amplio. Son sólo ideas para que tomes en cuenta. Las decisiones finales deberán esperar para más adelante. Aún existen algunos hechos que primero necesitas aprender. Tauro: Hoy tu y tu familia, o un grupo de amigos, pasarán el día paseando, Tauro. Quizás salgas al aire libre, o posiblemente concurras a un concierto o algún festival. Este será un día muy feliz para ti, ya que te sentirás muy cercano a los que te rodean, y tus relaciones parecen estar muy seguras, así como también tu carrera y tu situación económica. Disfruta del día! Géminis: Vas a sentirte atraída por las cosas que no puedes tener, Géminis. En vez de sentirte enfadada y frustrada por las cosas que no tienes, busca la lección de la situación, la razón por la que realmente no necesitas esas cosas para nada. Las cosas con alto valor extremadamente sentimental te van a parecer muy importantes en este momento, pero quizás exista una razón importante por la que debes dejar atrás ese sentimiento. Cáncer: Hoy puedes esperar que ocurran ciertos cambios evidentes en tu barrio. Tal vez se mude un vecino nuevo con quien podrías trabar una amistad, Cáncer. Esto podría alterar tu vida de manera sutil y llevarla en una dirección más positiva. Puede ocurrir que de inmediato sientas afinidad por esos nuevos conocidos y descubras que tienen muchos intereses en común. No analices en exceso la situación pero tampoco des por sentado que se trata de una casualidad. Simplemente, aprovéchala al máximo! Leo: La prosperidad está a la vuelta de la esquina. Leo, si es que todavía no llegó. Todos tus esfuerzos están a punto de ser recompensados, y muy bien. Quizás se acepte una propuesta muy importante en el trabajo, o quizás un editor tiene ese manuscrito que has escrito. Tu talento innato y buena suerte se combinan para traerte cosas maravillosas. Disfruta este bienvenido cambio de sucesos! Virgo: Un miembro familiar o un amado no te está diciendo la verdad. La defensa de esta persona es que ella probablemente cree que te está protegiendo al no contarte la verdad. Este es el momento para confiar en tus instintos, Virgo. Si te dicen algo para ti no es verdad, verifica la información tú misma antes que aceptarla como verdadera. Libra: Hoy el amor y el romance están primero en tu agenda, Libra. Tu y tu pareja se irán de una reunión con amigos, para estar solos y charlar. Tienen una buena comunicación, y el sentimiento intenso entre ambos será obvio, posiblemente embarazoso, para todos los que los conocen. Si han estado juntos por un tiempo, podrían hablar de compromiso y/o boda. Disfruta del día! Escorpio: Hoy te sientes bien con relación al dinero, Escorpio, y por lo tanto vas a decidir hacer algún arreglo en tu casa. Lo más probable es que redecores algo y no sea una arreglo importante, ya que por el momento te importa más la belleza que los asuntos prácticos. Tu sentido de la estética está muy elevado, inspirado por los reinos superiores, y por lo tanto toda decisión con respecto a decoración que tomes hoy es muy probable que sea acertada. Hazlo! Sagitario: Si estás con tu corazón ocupado, Sagitario, espera recibir una propuesta de matrimonio, u otro tipo de propuesta que implique que la relación se está moviendo al siguiente nivel de compromiso. Si ya estás casada, tu compañero vendrá con la idea de hacer un largo viaje juntos. Si tienes tu corazón solito, podrás conocer a alguien interesante. La comunicación entre tú y esa persona especial irá mejorando definitivamente. Diviértete! Capricornio: Si hoy prestas mucha atención, Capricornio, vas a notar aspectos de las personas que nunca antes habías notado. La frenética actividad del día podría atraparte en sus redes y llevarte consigo. Busca la ayuda de otras personas para que te puedan guiar en el camino. Cuando pidas ayuda, la recibirás. Al mismo tiempo, aprenderás muchísimo sobre aquellas personas que terminan ayudándote. Acuario: Hoy será difícil que los demás se den cuenta de tus verdaderos sentimientos, Acuario. Tus emociones están cubiertas por una nube oscura que bloquea la visión. La llave es la reserva al acercarse a una relación, y no esperar demasiado de los demás. Eres capaz de verte a ti misma y a tu situación desde un punto de vista muy realista, por lo tanto, considera hacer un poco de inventario de tu propio estado emocional. Piscis: Baja ese libro y sal de la casa, Piscis! Ya has estado sola lo suficiente, es hora de comenzar a interactuar con los demás. Aparte de que tendrás una pila de diversiones, también habrá encuentros que te serán beneficiosos a largo plazo. Las situaciones grupales son grandiosas, pero no te prives del placer que da la intimidad de un encuentro individual.

For more on what parents should know... visit our website at Weekly Horoscope BY SEÑORITA ANA Page 11 ARIES: (MARCH 20 - APRIL 18) Being a fire sign, your temperament brings vitality and intensity to any relationship. When seeking the balance of lively social conversation, however, one of the air signs (Gemini, Libra or Aquarius) needs to be recruited. TAURUS: (APRIL 19 - MAY 20) The buck stops here. That expression first appeared on a sign Harry Truman had posted in the oval office. Our past president was a dependable Taurus as well. That and a readiness to take on responsibility characterize you both. GEMINI: (MAY 21 - JUNE 20) Having a long attention span in the honing of your marketable skills should be your aim. The reason? You will need to step things up a notch if you expect your career to advance to the next level. CANCER: (JUNE 21 - JULY 22) As a kid, you probably had a secret hideaway - a tree house perhaps? Your current anxiety stems from being at everyone s beck and call and you could really use a retreat. Think as a child; think simple sanctuary. LEO: (JULY 23 - AUGUST 22) Why should anyone find it surprising that your ruling planet is the sun? Your light-hearted spirit, ready laugh and dramatic flair are more than enough to fill any room with warmth and goodwill. VIRGO: (AUGUST 23 - SEPTEMBER 22) Sometimes loved ones may not show you the kind of support (rah! rah!) that you yearn to have. Don t take that as disapproval; they are just busy with their own lives. They are still cheerleaders, only in a quieter way. LIBRA: (SEPTEMBER 23 - OCTOBER 22) The winds of change are blowing through and no one is noticing this more than you. What you once regarded as the status quo has been turned on its ear. Even though major changes will occur, you will definitely land on your feet. SCORPIO: (OCTOBER 23 - NOVEMBER 21) Consult more than one source when making an upcoming decision that will affect your health/happiness. More commonly, people end up with too little information rather than too much. Two heads are most often better than one. SAGITTARIUS: (NOVEMBER 22 - DECEMBER 21) Should a magic genie appear to grant you only one wish, resist the temptation to respond too selfishly. If living a life of luxury is your heart s desire, at least ask that others can benefit from your numerous expensive purchases. CAPRICORN: (DECEMBER 22 - JANUARY 19) Many of baseball s Red Sox fans believed their decades long losing seasons could be attributed to The Curse of the Bambino - Boston s loss of Babe Ruth. Don t be looking for any such rationalization in assessing your season. AQUARIUS: (JANUARY 20 - FEBRUARY 18) A map of your heart s terrain would show wideopen expanses, with many routes leading to the center. Topographically speaking, no mountains, forests or swamps show up in your key. You are free to love and be loved. PISCES: (FEBRUARY 19 - MARCH 19) Giddy anticipation of something fun will keep you buoyed up mood wise. In fact, often the excitement of the planning stage outdoes the actual event itself. In effect, your happy feeling gets an automatic extension. IF YOUR BIRTHDAY IS THIS WEEK: You share your birthday with Jessica Lange and Luther Vandross. A highly developed fantasy life doesn t keep you from welcoming conflicts. current events, photographs, links, weather, classifieds, copies of La Prensa can be found at

Chiapas y Atlante pusieron en marcha la 14ta fecha del certamen, el cual es encabezado por los Jaguares. Cabañas logró su gol con un cañonazo desde fuera del área a los 38 minutos. El paraguayo, figura de los Jaguares, llegó a nueve anotaciones en su cuenta personal y quedó a uno del líder goleador, el uruguayo Sebastián Abreu, de los Dorados de Sinaloa. El triunfo le permite a los Jaguares seguir puntero del Grupo 3 con 30 puntos, máxima cifra hasta el momento. Por su parte, Atlante se quedó con 18 unidades en el Grupo 1. En otro encuentro, Toluca y Tigres del UANL empataron 1-1. Sergio Amaury Ponce puso adelante a Toluca a los ocho minutos, pero el argentino Walter Gaitán igualó a los 92.

Toluca llegó a 20 puntos en el Grupo 2, donde marcha segundo mientras que Pachuca es primero del grupo con 24 unidades. Tigres llegó a 17 puntos en el Grupo 3. En otro partido, Cruz Azul no contó con varios de sus titulares pero supo imponerse 3-0 al visitante Veracruz. Cruz Azul no contó con el volante Tomás Campos por lesión y otros cuatro titulares que cedió a la selección de México. La Máquina Azul se adelantó a los 27 minutos con autogol del defensa argentino Pablo Quatrocchi en tiro largo de Rogelio Chávez.

En otro encuentro, San Luis, con un gol del argentino Ariel González, se impuso 1-0 a los Rayados de Monterrey. González fusiló con remate de izquierda al arquero Christian Martínez a los 37 minutos, para el gol solitario del partido. El triunfo le permitió a San Luis dejar el último lugar de la tabla de porcentaje del descenso. San Luis, Dorados de Sinaloa y Veracruz buscan no descender a la segunda división, pero para ello deben sacar los mejores resultados en este fin de torneo. San Luis llegó a 19 puntos en el Grupo 1 y tomó la punta del grupo por el momento. Monterrey se quedó con 17 puntos en el Grupo 3. Un poco más tarde, Chivas de Guadalajara vio rota una racha perfecta de cinco triunfos en fila desde que es dirigido por el técnico José Manuel de la Torre, al caer 2-0 ante el Morelia. De la Torre sustituyó desde la 12da fecha al entrenador holandés Hans Westerhof. Chivas no pudo contar con seis jugadores titulares que cedió a la selección de México por el resto del torneo. El Guadalajara, con sus mejores jugadores, logró sumar tres triunfos seguidos en el torneo local y dos más ante el Sao Paulo de Brasil, en la Copa Libertadores. El argentino Damián Alvarez hizo los dos goles del Morelia a los 54 y 65 minutos. Morelia llegó a 17 puntos en el Grupo 1, mientras que Chivas se quedó con 22 unidades en el Grupo 3. Más tarde, en partido nocturno, el Atlas de Guadalajara y el Santos Laguna empataron 3-3. Por Santos anotó par de goles Gerardo Espinoza, a los 28 y 67 minutos, y otro el fue del argentino Matías Vuoso a los 5. En tanto, el brasileño Danilo hizo dos goles por el Altas a los 6 y 11.

United 2, Chivas USA 0 WASHINGTON (AP): Jaime Moreno anotó dos goles para llevar al D.C. United a derrotar 2-0 al Chivas USA y obtener así su primera victora de la temporada. El boliviano Moreno aprovechó un rechace del portero del Chivas USA, Brad Guzmán, para anotar en marco abierto a los 59 minutos y añadió otro en tiempo de prórroga al aprovechar un centro de Freddy Adu rebotado por Guzmán. Adu, que entró al partido en sustitución del argentino Christian Gómez a los 76 minutos, tuvo una gran oportunidad de anotar, pero Guzmán detuvo su disparo a los 90 minutos. Antes del segundo gol de Moreno, el mexicano Juan Pablo García parecía empatar el marcador para las Chivas a los 84 minutos, pero su potente tiro libre rebotó en el travesaño. Según algunas repeticiones de televisión, el disparo de García rebasó la línea de gol, pero el árbiro Marcel Yonan permitió que continuaran las acciones sin validar el gol pese a las protestas de jugadores y directivos del Chivas USA. current events, photographs, links, weather, classifieds, copies of La Prensa can be found at

18 Página 18 prensa1.com April/abril 12, 2006 Farmers worry as legislators debate immigration What will a Sensenbrenner apple or tomato cost? (Continued from Page 2) House-approved version [HR 4437, the Sensenbrenner-King bill] calling for military enforcement of the border that would make it a felony to be in the country without documentation. Rousseau and other farmers believe that would be disastrous for the industry. On the opposite end of the spectrum, a bill approved by the Senate Judiciary Committee [the McCain-Kennedy bill] would allow some undocumented immigrants to apply for citizenship while expanding an existing guestworker program. Cutting farmers access to cross-border workers without giving them an alternative could cost the industry up to $9 billion in annual production, according to the American Farm Bureau Federation, which has long lobbied for a streamlined temporary worker program. The average wage for skilled and unskilled farm workers is about $10 an hour, said Austin Pérez, a labor specialist with the federation. If that were raised to $14, up to a third of the nation s fruit and vegetable farms might be forced out of business, he said. And that still might not be enough to recruit large numbers of native-born workers, Pérez added. While a border crackdown is a vision of doom for many farmers, it is unknown whether consumers will feel the difference. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, when a consumer, for example, takes home a $1 head of lettuce, 19 cents goes to the farmer; six cents of that goes to the worker who picked it. The real difference, some believe, would be whether the food is grown in the United States or abroad. The shift has begun already, as U.S.- American farmers face steeper labor, fuel, and other costs. For instance, the town of Gilroy, south of San José, CA, still calls itself the Garlic Capital of the World, and anoints an annual Garlic Queen. But Communist China, where production costs are much lower, now grows about 66 percent of the world s garlic, according to the U.S. Agriculture Department. But farmers point to the country s dependence on foreign oil to show the disadvantages of relying on others. Also, food grown at home is fresher, and can be held to U.S.-American production standards, with stricter environmental and quality control, farmers said. Fear of an immigration crackdown is already chasing some AG businesses across the border where the workers are, said vegetable harvester and shipper Steve Scaroni. His company hires 1,500 people in California and Arizona during harvests to pick fresh produce and take it to companies who bag it and give it a brand name. But some of his customers are so concerned that they re shifting their operations to México. And he s following. We just don t feel we can risk keeping all our eggs in the USA basket, he said. We re competing in an international market. It s easy to say, raise wages, but the question is, will we stay in business? The solution farmers are hoping for one not promised by any of the current bills is a program allowing farmers to bring as many workers as they need across the border, without the time or expense of the current guestworker program. Chalmers Carr, who ships about 1 million boxes of peaches from his 2,500- acre operation in South Carolina, has been using the existing program to bring in up to 300 workers a year from México. It s expensive he estimates it costs him about $500 in fees and transportation costs to bring in one worker for one season, not including the mandatory housing expenses. It s also time consuming in February, he asked for the workers he d need in April and was still waiting for approval this week. This process has to be streamlined, has to work the way it s supposed to if we re going to rely on it, he said. These proposals fall way short of fixing the problems, but they re a start. It s something. According to Baldemar Velásquez, president of the Farm Labor Organizing Committee (FLOC), which is headquartered in Toledo, OH, his union represents some 7,000 guestworkers who lawfully obtain working permits to harvest crops in North Carolina. HR 4437 will be disastrous to the farming community there, believes Velásquez, who has supported the McCain- Kennedy bill, which was recommended by the U.S. Senate s Judiciary Committee but failed to be voted upon by the Senate as a whole prior to its two-week recess last Friday.

(Es) un paso importante en el establecimiento de nuevos mecanismos que permitan una migración legal, segura, ordenada y respetuosa de los derechos humanos entre México y Estados Unidos, señaló la administración del presidente Vicente Fox en un comunicado de la cancillería. Indicó que México está p l e n a m e n t e convencido de que es necesaria la responsabilidad compartida para llegar a una solución migratoria. De firmarse el acuerdo, los inmigrantes ilegales que han estado en el país entre dos y cinco años tendrían que regresar a sus países de origen y volver con visas de trabajo temporal, para luego comenzar a gestionar la ciudadanía estadounidense. Quienes han estado más de cinco años podrán permanecer en Estados Unidos y los que tienen menos de dos deberán partir a sus países sin la seguridad de poder regresar. Se calcula que de los 11 millones de indocumentados que hay en Estados Unidos, seis millones son mexicanos. El embajador de Estados Unidos en México, Tony Garza, señaló en una declaración escrita que el proyecto es sólo parte de un largo proceso para llegar a una reforma migratoria. Sin embargo, manifestó que en última instancia nuestro gobierno actuará conforme a los intereses que más convengan al pueblo estadounidense y de manera consistente con el deseo de los ciudadanos de que nuestro país sea una nación segura y da la bienvenida a los inmigrantes. Desde que asumió el cargo en diciembre de 2000, Fox planteó como objetivo principal buscar un acuerdo migratorio bilateral con Estados Unidos. Receptivo al principio, el gobierno estadounidense cambió sus prioridades hacia la seguridad y la lucha contra el terrorismo tras los ataques del 11 de septiembre de Fox y su colega George W. Bush abordaron el tema migratorio la semana pasada en una reunión en la que el mandatario estadounidense se comprometió a impulsar una reforma migratoria integral que considere un programa de trabajadores temporales. Fox, en tanto, subrayó entonces que México entiende su responsabilidad en el tema y que está dispuesto a reforzar la seguridad en sus fronteras norte y sur. e-prensa!
