We Seek Twenty ‘Immigrant Leaders’ For Community Service
Translation By Rhett Smith
SAN ANTONIO, TX. — We Seek 20 Leaders- (‘Immigrant Supervisor’) Who have a common characteristic. What is? Being “Undocumented”-For Now— Or To Be “Illegal” or in irregular form in the country of The United States of America.
What is the Purpose? To provide an example not only in the national climate but through the international perspective already that these persons will be disposed to leave the shadows to the light and to offer community service through the principle authority in their place of residence and “to pay” in this way their fault and serve as an example to the members of congress of the USA so as to be taken as a viable proposal now to evaluate immigration reform.
“¡Hablan de los indocumentados, pero NO hablan con los Indocumentados!” así dice el Arquitecto, Ex-Presidente provisional de Mexico en el exilio y actual Director del periodico San Antonio Newspaper.
“They talk about the undocumented, but do NOT talk with the undocumented!” thus says Rodolfo Macias, 56, architect, former Provisional President of Mexico in exile (1989-1994) and current Director and journalist of SANews.
Goal: Organize 1200 “undocumented” in order to give Community Service
Time: September 2009
Place: San Antonio and Bexar County in the state of Texas
Purpose: To take the idea of Archbishop José Gomez and put it into practice the first week of October 2009 before Mayor Julian Castro of San Antonio and judge Nelson Wolff of Bexar County. A “pilot project” in order to be taken into account by the Congress of the USA
The marches and meetings of protest or isolated demonstrations remain only in demonstrations.
What this group is causing is: Organizing of the “undocumented” or of the immigrants that, for now, are in irregular form in this nation and that they themselves do not remain with arms folded after the lack of endorsement of their own government and that here (in the USA) they only speak of them.
USA is passing through a crisis not only economic but of values and of family unity that is the base of any society. The end of last year was given one of the grandest economic crisis in this nation, not only the automobile crisis but the financier, that for lack of an adequate supervision on the part of the government, they did what wanted and the new administration for fall not in a general collapse go to the ‘rescue’, but, told us, How many this in the prison by to have caused the crisis? How many authorities of the government of the administration of the President Bush are in the jail by to have permitted? How many businessmen conspiracy with the government are in the jail?
(**) Exodus 18:
13 The next day Moses took his seat to serve as judge for the people, and they stood around him from morning till evening. 14 When his father-in-law saw all that Moses was doing for the people, he said, "What is this you are doing for the people? Why do you alone sit as judge, while all these people stand around you from morning till evening?"
15 Moses answered him, "Because the people come to me to seek God’s will. 16 Whenever they have a dispute, it is brought to me, and I decide between the parties and inform them of God’s decrees and laws."
17 Moses’ father-in-law replied, "What you are doing is not good. 18 You and these people who come to you will only wear yourselves out. The work is too heavy for you; you cannot handle it alone. 19 Listen now to me and I will give you some advice, and may God be with you. You must be the people’s representative before God and bring their disputes to him. 20 Teach them the decrees and laws, and show them the way to live and the duties they are to perform. 21 But select capable men from all the people—men who fear God, trustworthy men who hate dishonest gain—and appoint them as officials over thousands, hundreds, fifties and tens. 22 Have them serve as judges for the people at all times, but have them bring every difficult case to you; the simple cases they can decide themselves. That will make your load lighter, because they will share it with you. 23 If you do this and God so commands, you will be able to stand the strain, and all these people will go home satisfied."
24 Moses listened to his father-in-law and did everything he said. 25 He chose capable men from all Israel and made them leaders of the people, officials over thousands, hundreds, fifties and tens. 26 They served as judges for the people at all times. The difficult cases they brought to Moses, but the simple ones they decided themselves.
27 Then Moses sent his father-in-law on his way, and Jethro returned to his own country.
