VIDEO: Trump insists on scrapping Green card lottery and make e-verify mandatory

Published

on

The Trump administration has drawn out a new proposal to reform the legal US immigration system.

According to people familiar with the proposal, the administration wants to among other things, end the Diversity Visa Program (Green Card Lottery) make E-Verify mandatory for all employers, and reform the asylum and detention laws to discourage migrants from traveling to the US border to seek refuge in the country.

A source briefed on the proposal told Politico that the administration wants to end the diversity visa lottery, which grants 50,000 permanent resident visas annually to nationals of countries with low immigration rates to the US. The 50,000 visas to would re-allocated to employment-based applicants, the source told Politico.

The plan would also limit visas given to family member os US residents (which Republicans call rain migration) and re-distribute the visas to more merit-based immigration programs.

More than one million individuals become US permanent residents each year, with only 140,000 doing so through employment. The rest get permanent residency as relatives of US citizens or permanent resident, as refugees, or through the diversity visa program.

The plan is being pushed by Jared Kushner, senior White House adviser and Trump’s son-in-law. Kushner has reportedly been working on the proposal for months.

The proposal is set to be unveiled in the coming days and sent to Congress, though experts say it faces near-impossible odds of passage as far-right hardliners of immigration say it does not reduce legal immigration, while Democrats have repeatedly said they will not support any immigration reform bill that does not include DACA protection.

Published

City detectives on Thursday evening arrested a suspect found repackaging sugar from a sack labelled Kabras Sugar Company into packets labelled Naivas.

Detectives from Parklands acting on intelligence raided Heykal Packers and Distributors godown situated within Atlantis Business Park in Embakasi and arrested one suspect.

According to DCI, the suspect was found repacking sugar and rice to 1kg and 2kg packets labeled Naivas and Economy.

They also found several other brands  being repackaged at the warehouse. They Red Rose, Mama Afric, Biriani rice, Thai Long and Vietnam rice.

Police seized the rice and sugar for further tests by public health officers.

The godown has since been closed as detectives seek to establish whether some of the documents presented are authentic.

Last week, an owner of a godown in Kariobangi evaded arrest after detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) raided the facility and impounded tonnes of expired rice.

The detectives seized tonnes of expired foodstuff and arrested several suspects found working inside the godown.

Eko Dydda’s troubled marriage

Published

on

Kenyan gospel rapper Eko Dydda has finally been exposed by his wife, Cynthia Ayugi, for cheating on her with a friend after months of denial.

Two months ago, the rapper was reported to have kicked his wife and the mother of his two sons out of their home after she confronted him over an affair with another woman.

The rapper however denied the claims by posting a video of himself, his wife and their two sons with the caption:

“Dida ambia wasee wa rumours Psalms 23, What is bound in heaven is also bound on earth.”

DISMISSED RUMOURS

He would later do an interview with Edaily where he once again dismissed the rumours.

“You know me. I cannot dare do all that which is being alleged online. My wife and children are with me and I do not know where the rumour came from,” he said.

But from his wife’s latest claims, it is clear that their marriage is now on the rocks over claims of infidelity.

CHEATING HUSBAND

In a recent post, Ayugi accused her husband of cheating on her with a friend, stating that she is not going to remain silent anymore.

“Breaking someone’s marriage is not Godly. I invited you as a friend, today unasema ambia Eko not to bring me home because love yenu haita grow. It’s not a battle @EkoDydda you don’t have to hide it anymore your ‘Dope’ is free to love you, sometimes it’s healthy to walk away. Na leo ndio ile siku I will not hide it for fame, money. I will stand with the truth and will never lie to people,” she wrote.

The interviewee who hated me

Published

BY CAROLINE NGINA

6 years ago a guy looked at me face to face, and boldly told me; “I don’t like you!”

I immediately fired a response, I asked him that day; “Thank you for the honest feedback, but those that you like, how has it made their life better? How does your liking people pay their bills or take a bank loan? My brother keep your like, I need God’s like And that’s what guarantees my future.

Today I joined a CEO friend of mine in an interview Panel to recruit some new staff, it was a long session, as we returned from a coffee break to continue the hectic interview session, here was this same guy walkING in with his grey jacket and CV coming for the interview.

Our eyes kissed by fluke, we immediately recognised each other; “the world is indeed spherical”, I soliloquized.

He felt very uncomfortable through out the interview, one could clearly see the volcanic eruption ongoing in his whole nervous system, he even mistook his date of birth for his last date of employment. It wasn’t yet my turn to ask him questions so I allowed everyone to take their turns with him and deliberately opted to interview him last.

When it got to my turn, the first thing I said was, “I LIKE YOU so much, you look to me like a brilliant and intelligent person, but it seems you are not doing well now because something bothers you, true?”

“That’s very correct Sir!” He responded.

“Ok look at me straight in the eye, I was never offended that day, it is very normal that sometimes as humans you just don’t like certain people, but I wasn’t bothered either, because whether you liked me or not, it was inconsequential to my life and my success path – as you can see, fate has brought you to my lair”

I stood up and beckoned him to come and embrace me, everyone on the panel at this point were at sea – wondering if we had expeditiously recast an interview session to a Hollywood movie scene.

He hugged me so long and deeply that I felt it. Then I told him, “now get your confidence back bro and answer the questions like a Pro Shark that you are, we all burst into laughter, everyone suddenly liked him and the room became livelier – the interview became more like a discussion, well to cut the long story short, he got the job!

~ Be careful how you treat people when they appear to be in their vulnerable state, your next level may be hanging in their balance; somewhere in the future.

~ If you dislike someone, it is not their fault, it is YOUR FAULT, work on yourself to find good in people and reinvent your Mind to see everyone as likeable.

~,Don’t spew hatred vocally just because it came into your heart, you may say it to someone who will keep it forever and use it against you when you find yourself in your own low moments and need them.

~ Learn to forgive, overlook people’s dislike and hatred for you, dont punish people just because you have the position and privilege to do so, bless them rather – that’s how you court God’s blessings, favour and protection.
