Illegal immigrants turn to GoFundMe in effort to stay in U.S.

Some enterprising citizens who are fed up with the slow pace of progress in building President Trump’s border wall have decided to take matters into their own hands.

US media reports that dozens of people have launched GoFundMe accounts to raise money that they say they will make sure is used to push the president’s plans for his “great, beautiful wall.”

On the other hand,  illegal immigrant “Dreamers” have also turned to “crowdfunding” to raise money, asking for donations to pay their fees as they rush to apply for renewed status under the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program that keeps them from being deported.

According to Washington Times, American good Samaritans have been donating hundreds of thousands of dollars to more than 600 pro-immigrant campaigns as they look for ways to become personally involved in the immigration debate.

“This is certainly a way they can do that, and it makes a big difference to these people,” said Peter Boogaard, communications director at FWD.us, a pro-immigration advocacy group founded by tech executives that is working with GoFundMe to highlight the DACA campaigns. “They’re not asking for huge amounts of money. They’re asking for a little bit of support to make their ability to renew their applications a little easier.”

Kenyan woman dies on board plane to Dallas, Texas

Published

A Kenyan woman who was travelling to the United States from Nairobi to visit her family died aboard a plane on Tuesday less than an hour before it landed.

According to the family, Hannah Kamau, a resident of Githunguri in Kiambu County, fell ill suddenly and died while on the flight to Dallas, Texas.

The family said efforts by the cabin crew to resuscitate her were unsuccessful.

“They told us that she developed shortness of [breath] and started gasping for air. [After collapsing, the cabin crew performed CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) that revived her. But after about ten minutes or so, she collapsed again and this time around they couldn’t revive her,” said Mr Patrick Nganga, her nephew who lives in Dallas.

Her daughter, Ms Alice Kamau, told the Nation her mother had not complained of any signs of illness before she embarked on the journey in Nairobi.

“I spoke to my mom just before she boarded the flight in Nairobi and she was in a jovial mood because she was finally coming over to see us, especially her grandchildren. At the time, she didn’t complain of anything. Therefore, it was a total shock to me when I was told that she had died,” said Ms Kamau.
