ENGLISH TRANSLATION

HELLO, WELCOME, MY NAME IS MORELYS URBANO IN THIS NEW AND LATEST SEGMENT OF MORGAN NEWS “CARA A CARA” HOPING TO BECOME YOUR FIRST RESOURCE OF INFORMATION IN SPANISH.

IT'S A GREAT PLEASURE TO BE WITH YOU IN THIS SEGMENT AND TO BRING YOU THE LATEST UPDATES ON THE SOCIAL TOPICS THAT MATTER MOST TO YOU. I REPEAT I AM MORELYS URBANO, A SOPHOMORE MULTIMEDIA JOURNALISM STUDENT AT THE HISTORICALLY BLACK UNIVERSITY “THE ILLUSTRIOUS” MORGAN STATE UNIVERSITY. I AM ORIGINALLY FROM THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC, BUT I CURRENTLY LIVE IN THE CITY OF BALTIMORE. APART FROM MY RESUME AS A JOURNALIST, I ALSO HAVE EXTENSIVE EXPERIENCE IN SOCIAL ACTIVISM AND COMMUNITY ORGANIZING, I AM A POET AND WRITER AND ALSO A GREAT FAN OF THE PROMOTION AND ADVANCEMENT OF THE LATINO COMMUNITY.

“CARA A CARA” IS AN INFORMATIVE SEGMENT CAPABLE OF BRINGING YOU THE LATEST BIWEEKLY NEWS, RESPONDING TO THE CONCERNS OF THE COMMUNITY BUT ABOVE ALL, INFORMING YOU IN AN ARDUOUS AND TRUTHFUL WAY, IN YOUR LANGUAGE.

THE MISSION OF THIS SEGMENT IS TO FOSTER LANGUAGE INCLUSIVITY IN COMMUNITIES THROUGHOUT THE DIASPORA AND ENGAGE WITH THE PUBLIC OF MORGAN STATE AND THE STATE OF MARYLAND AT LARGE. THERE ARE ISSUES THAT CONCERN US AS A COMMUNITY, AND TRUTHFUL JOURNALISM IS COMMITTED TO OFFERING HELP TO THOSE CONCERNS WITHOUT A LANGUAGE BARRIER. THIS SEGMENT IS FOUNDED AND RUN BY YOURS TRULY, AND WITHOUT FURTHER ADO, LET'S GET STARTED.

MOMENTS OF FEAR DESCRIBE RESIDENTS OF FLORIDA AFTER THE EFFECTS OF HURRICANE IAN. FAMILY MEMBERS FROM THE DMV FEAR FOR THEIR WELL-BEING AND ASK THE REST OF THE COUNTRY TO REMAIN ALERTED.

AT CARA A CARA, WE WILL BE COVERING THIS DEVASTATING NEWS NEXT WEEK, AND SPEAKING DIRECTLY TO A FLORIDA RESIDENT THAT HAS BEEN AFFECTED BY THE HURRICANE AND ITS GRAVITY.DACA RECIPIENTS FEAR FOR THEIR FUTURE, AS CONGRESS WILL MAKE A KEY DECISION REGARDING THE DESTINY OF THE PROGRAM AT THE END OF OCTOBER.

ON JULY 16, 2021, TEXAS FEDERAL COURT JUDGE HANEN RELEASED HIS OPINION ON THE DACA CASE, STATING THAT INITIAL DACA APPLICATIONS WOULD BE PAUSED WHILE RENEWALS WOULD CONTINUE.

THE DACA FINAL RULE IS INTENDED TO REPLACE DHS'S 2012 MEMORANDUM TO FURTHER LEGITIMIZE THE PROGRAM IN COURT. HOWEVER, IT DOES NOT CHANGE THE CURRENT STATUS OF DACA.

THE BIDEN ADMINISTRATION HAS NOT FOLLOWED THROUGH ON ITS PROMISE TO “PRESERVE AND STRENGTHEN” DACA AND HAS MISSED AN OPPORTUNITY TO EXPAND AND UPDATE THE PROGRAM TO PROTECT MORE UNDOCUMENTED YOUTH. INSTEAD, THE RULE MAINTAINS OUTDATED ELIGIBILITY DEADLINES THAT PREVENT MOST YOUNG IMMIGRANTS FROM ACCESSING THE PROGRAM.

IN CARA A CARA AT MORGAN WE WILL KNOW THE REALITIES BEHIND THIS PROGRAM; THE BENEFITS AND NEGATIVE EFFECTS THAT IT HAS IMPLIED, AND THE IMPACT THAT ITS FUTURE WILL HAVE ON THE IMMIGRANT COMMUNITY. THEREFORE, WE WILL OFFER MORE INFORMATION ON THE SUBJECT IN THE FOLLOWING WEEKS FROM ONE OF THE LARGEST ORGANIZATIONS FOR THE PROTECTION OF IMMIGRANT RIGHTS.

IN THE SAME IMMIGRATION FIELD, A NEW LEGISLATORY PROPOSAL PRESENTED TO THE UNITED STATES SENATE WHICH WOULD UPDATE THE SO-CALLED REGISTRATION LAW ESTABLISHED IN 1920, WHICH UNTIL NOW ONLY ALLOWS THE LEGALIZATION OF THOSE WITH MORE THAN 50 YEARS OF RESIDENCY IN THE COUNTRY. THE LAW WOULD REDUCE THE LONG WAIT TO 7 YEARS, GRANTING A BROAD OPPORTUNITY TO IMMIGRANTS TO REGULATE THEIR IMMIGRATION STATUS.

ON THE OTHER HAND, THE OFFICE OF IMMIGRANT AFFAIRS OF THE GOVERNOR OF BALTIMORE OFFERS A VARIETY OF CELEBRATIONS FOR THE MONTH OF HISPANIC HERITAGE, AMONG THEM ARE PARADE AND FESTIVAL FIESTA BALTIMORE SUNDAY, OCTOBER 9, FROM 10 A.M. TO 7 P.M.

IN ANOTHER ORDER, THERE ARE VACCINE BOOSTER UPDATES FOR ADOLESCENTS AND ADULTS ON THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 1, 2022, THE CDC AUTHORIZED A NEW VERSION OF THE MODERNA AND PFIZER VACCINES TO BE ADMINISTERED AS A BOOSTER DOSE.
