“We Are and Always Be a Nation of Immigrants; We Were Strangers Once, too!”

By: Juntee Terrenal, GMS, Strategic International Business Leader, Adviser & Coach

“We are a nation of Immigrants in the United States of America” “We Were Strangers Once, too”

In the next few weeks, immigration will be the focus of debates among Americans and their international friends across platforms and media; because the US Supreme Court will begin their oral arguments about the case U.S. versus Texas. It is a topic that ignites tensions that are highly political.

In fact, the 2016 presidential candidates have started debating it by offering their personal views and preferences as a tool of influencing votes in their favor. Instead of looking through opportunities and creating together better society of integrated immigrants across cultures.

In connection to that case, the group of corporate leaders signed the Brief, requesting the US Supreme Court to support President Obama’s Executive Actions on Immigration, “that temporarily protect some undocumented immigrants from deportation and gives them the ability to legally work in the United States”.

Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook’s Co-Founder & CEO publicly announced yesterday via his Facebook page (see below) that he and other corporate leaders have signed the Brief.

In 2014, President Obama expressed his passionate remarks on Immigration during his Address to the Nation. Please see a part of his remarks below:

“My fellow Americans, we are and always will be a nation of immigrants. We were strangers once, too. And whether our forebears were strangers who crossed the Atlantic, or the Pacific, or the Rio Grande, we are here only because this country welcomed them in, and taught them that to be an American is about something more than what we look like, or what our last names are, or how we worship. What makes us Americans is our shared commitment to an ideal -– that all of us are created equal, and all of us have the chance to make of our lives what we will. – President Barack Obama, Remarks by the President in Address to the Nation, November 20, 2014.

Indeed, this is a topic that requires discussion but let us rise above the politics of it and as educated professionals with common sense. Our American immigration system needs a reform to align with the needs and situations of the 21st Century. Like every other nation internationally, they consider immigration as vital source of economic growth and development.

Today, all nations are evolving towards competitiveness; there are shortages of people’s competency to perform jobs, the family unit that needs to be integrated culturally and become a part of global economy. Immigrants need to be welcomed as an integrated part of our own Americanism. How could America compete with the rest of the world, if we remain in a mindset that is narrowly focused and ignores the impact of globalization where immigration is a vital part of it?

The families who are willing to partake in the American economy, participate in our democratic system, become real American resident or even citizen like everyone else; however many of them don’t have legitimate documentation because our immigration system do not allow them to become a part of our ‘Americanism’. They worked hard to be a part of our American living. They played vital roles in our communities. Their children studied with their best to become among the future of the United States. They deserve equal respect and dignity. Let’s welcome them as Americans not labeling them as ‘unfit strangers forever’.

“Are we a nation that kicks out a striving, hopeful immigrant like Astrid, or are we a nation that finds a way to welcome her in? Scripture tells us that we shall not oppress a stranger, for we know the heart of a stranger –- we were strangers once, too.” – President Obama

Imports Produced Through Forced Labor Can Be Stopped: CBP’s Trade Facilitation & Trade Enforcement Act 2015 Signed Into Law

By: Juntee Terrenal, GMS, Strategic International Business Leader, Adviser & Coach

“As CBP continues to safeguard legitimate trade and travel at our borders, I am proud to say that the 60,000 men and women of U.S. Customs and Border Protection remain committed to enforcing our trade laws and protecting the nation’s economic security.” said in the Statement issued by Commissioner R. Gil Kerlikowske

President Obama signed H.R. 644, the Trade Facilitation and Trade Enforcement Act of 2015 – also known as the Customs Authorization Bill, as of last week.

Please find the General Objectives of this 2015 Act on the image below;

Perspectives:

The business objectives of this 2015 Act is great, hopefully we will be seeing greater impact of stopping or banning goods that are produced through forced and child labors from countries that are exploiting their citizens. In this way, the Citizens of the United States will not be viewed as supporters of the exploitation of certain countries, because the american consumers buy these goods.

This Act has achieved the closing of the loophole that existed for 85 Years in America’s Tariff Law. It is unbelievable how our laws were written yet no one among the so called Legislators took time of correcting it until 85 years later. The language of that 85 Years old Tariff Law is being corrected under President Obama’s administration is seen below..

Bad Language of the Tariff Law in the last 85 Years:

Until now, U.S. customs law banning imports of items produced by forced or child labor had gone largely unenforced because of two words: “consumptive demand” — if there was not sufficient supply to meet domestic demand, imports were allowed regardless of how they were produced. (source:NYDailyNews)

If you read correctly that conditional statement as a clarification of “consumptive demand”, the question would be why do the CBPs (so called in charge of the enforcement) allowed themselves to be the pawn of badly produced goods. Capitalism in full force.

Was there indeed a shortage of these goods domestically, that triggered supply and demand of goods that were produced by forced and child labors?

Indeed, there was no enforcement; as gate keepers they allowed the American public to buy and use these goods and eventually suffered the consequence of consuming them; the producers benefited from the US Dollars spent in them. Where and who bears the moral obligation and accountability of that “consumptive demand” phrase?

In the meantime, hopefully with the newly signed Law we will see better enforcement. The Commissioner is confident to the strategic approach of CBP’s 328 Port of Entry that these imported goods to the United States will be curtailed as per authorization of the new trade and enforcement law.

More Power to President Barack Obama, his administration, legislators and CBP (US Customs and Border Protection) who were all involved in rectifying an old tariff law with bad language.
