Obama’s Order to Benefit Filipinos from Deportation

Posted by:

Good news, kabayan sa US! More than 250,000 undocumented Filipinos in the United States will benefit from President Barack Obama’s executive action on immigration.

Many illegal immigrants in the US rejoice when Obama announced changes to the immigration system, mainly affecting those under the DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) and DAP (Deferred Action for Parents) categories.

The Department of Foreign Affairs has already commanded its posts in the US to study the executive order and how its personnel can help the Filipinos avail of the protection offered by the president’s proposal.

Undocumented Filipino migrants who will meet the criteria will be eligible to apply for three-year relief from deportation and work permits.

But they should be able to meet the following criteria to qualify for the extended protection from deportation:

  • Arrived in the US before 2010, and arrived in the US under the age of 16; and
  • Arrived in the US before 2010, and have at least one child who is a US citizen or legal resident;

Around five million illegal immigrants in the United States will benefit from the ease of threat of deportation because of Obama’s order which is a way to break the delay in debate over immigration.

A statement in the embassy’s advisory said that”Filipinos should decide and arrange to leave Yemen immediately, and not later than 30 November 2014.”

Filipinos can also reach designated Filipino community area coordinators and leaders for further information about the repatriation.

Filipinos in Yemen can also contact the Crisis Management Team at Movenpick Hotel Sana’a, Berlin Street, Sana’a, Yemen with mobile number +967-73-384-4958.

The call for repatriation of Filipinos was reiterated by the Department of Foreign Affairs earlier this month after raising alert level 3 in Yemen due to the occupation of Houthi rebels in the city of Sana’a.

Alert level 3 in Yemen means voluntary repatriation and a total deployment ban for Filipinos, even for those who are on vacation.

Filipina Nurse Sentenced to Life in UAE

Posted by:

Overseas Filipino workers or OFWs flock to UAE countries with the aim of having a job with higher salary offer. But sad to say, some OFWs do illegal activities abroad to earn more, forgetting that the family they left behind in the Philippines will suffer in the end.

And just recently, a Filipina nurse was sentenced with life imprisonment in the United Arab Emirates after the court found her guilty in possession of illegal drugs.

The 34-year old Filipina nurse was convicted of life term, denying her appeal, when she was arrested by the police officers.

Pinay nurse J.T. was hiding the illegal drug in her underwear when the police caught her in a buy-bust operation in Dubai.

J. T. confessed that she got the methamphetamine from a person named Louis and sold it to another Filipino, R.J., but denied consuming it.

J.T. and R.J. both pleaded not guilty before the Dubai Court of First Instance last July when they were first arrested for the possession of the banned substance.

Filipinos around the world, especially in those in Middle East countries, are called upon to avoid engaging in illegal acts that will result to possible deportation, imprisonment, or even death in the foreign country.

POEA Advised OFWs Not to Use 2 Visas

Posted by:

In pursuit of their dreams to give brighter future for their families, most overseas Filipino workers or OFWs will grab on anything just to be able to work abroad. These often results to being victims of scams, illegal recruitments and abuse in those foreign countries.

The Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) released an advisory warning Filipinos about recruitment agencies using the double visa scheme to deploy workers abroad.

Some Filipinos set to leave for deployment to work abroad was found bearing two employment visas for two different jobs. They were stopped by the Bureau of Immigration from boarding the plane bound to Middle East countries.  The Filipino recruits were questioned and they admitted to knowing that their actual work is different from what is in the processed documents.

POEA Administrator Hans Leo J. Cacdac said that greedy recruiters from agencies like to use the double visa deployment scheme in order to avoid the protective system set by the government.  This often results to the abuse and exploitation of Filipino household service workers or HSWs abroad.

Cacdac also said that most Filipino HSWs who are in the safety of Migrant Workers and Filipino Resource Center in Dubai were deployed there using two visas.

Working abroad in this kind of deployment from recruitment agencies will make any Filipinos or OFWs undocumented, taking risks for their own safety and welfare in the foreign land.
