Certificate of Citizenship, again

Tuesday, April 24th, 2018

RE: Camp Hill district judge calls immigration on two couples getting married

Friends have posted this elsewhere, but I’m also posting because it’s so very important. A young man, Alexander Curtis Parker, was born in Guatemala and adopted by an American family at 8 months old. Now 21, Parker showed up at a Pennsylvania courthouse with his fiancĂ©, to go before a judge to get married. The judge asked Parker for proof of citizenship. (Presumably because Parker’s skin is brown and he looks like someone born in Guatemala.) Parker explained he’s a Permanent Resident with a green card that’s in process of being renewed. Technically, though, at that moment, Parker was “undocumented” with his green-card status in process.

ICE was called. Parker was fingerprinted. On his wedding day. The miracle of the story is that ICE backed-off. Read the article for details.

Friends: Don’t let this happen to your Guatemalan-born child or children! If you do nothing else today, make sure you possess a Certificate of Citizenship for your kids. A Certificate of Citizenship never expires and is the only absolute proof of citizenship.

Thank you. The end.

Road trip to Arizona

Friday, April 13th, 2018

Over Spring Break, we drove 1,000+ miles through the state of Arizona: Phoenix, Sedona, Slide Rock, Grand Canyon, Four Corners, Riverbend, the Navajo sacred lands of Monument Valley and Canyon de Chelly, Painted Desert, Petrified Forest, and the Big Crater somewhere outside Flagstaff. It was the first time we’d been to most of those places, and let me tell you, the landscapes are breathtaking. Arizona is gorgeous!

Every day was magnificent, but the kids especially loved our Jeep tour through Canyon de Chelly with our Navajo guide, Oscar Bia. Olivia said she liked visiting Arizona because it’s so different from California. “It’s like going to another country,” she said. “Except everyone speaks English.”
