[RED DEMOCRATICA] NOTICIAS : RED/UTAH : David Utrilla Consul Honorario del Peru en UTAH

 


Utah recibe nuevo Cónsul Honorario del Perú
South Ogden, Utah,
30 de septiembre de 2009.-


El día de hoy, Utah le da la bienvenida a David Utrilla como el miembro número 31 del Cuerpo de Cónsules de Utah.
Después de su nombramiento oficial por el Presidente del Perú, Dr. Alan García, y de haber recibido las credenciales correspondientes por parte del Departamento de Estado de los EE.UU., el Sr. Utrilla está listo para cumplir sus funciones formales como Cónsul Honorario del Perú en el Estado de Utah.

Solo después de México, la comunidad de inmigrantes peruanos es la segunda más numerosa en Utah. Hasta este momento, el Consulado más cercano se encontraba en Denver, Colorado. Por este motivo, todos los documentos oficiales se tenían que procesar por correo, o las personas tenían que esperar que el Consulado itinerante visite la ciudad dos veces al año, o se tenía que viajar a Denver. Debido a esta tremenda necesidad, en la noche previa a cada visita del Consulado itinerante, se formaban largas colas y solo se podía atender a las primeras 200 personas, por lo que muchas terminaban yéndose sin ser atendidas.
Adicionalmente, el pueblo y el Gobierno del Perú están muy agradecidos con las muchas organizaciones humanitarias de Utah que brindan ayuda a la gente del Perú que vive en estado de pobreza.
Estas organizaciones no solo ayudan a las personas con sus necesidades básicas, sino que les dan esperanzas sobre su futuro ya que las ayudan a convertirse en personas independientes y a preservar su dignidad. El Cónsul Utrilla planea ayudar y apoyar a las organizaciones con esta labor.

Utrilla manifestó sentirse honrado y emocionado por haber recibido este prestigioso cargo: "Deseo ayudar a la comunidad peruana aquí en Utah y fortalecer todas las relaciones entre Utah y el Perú".
Lew Cramer, Presidente del Word Trade Center, dijo: "El Sr. Utrilla conduce sus negocios con una rigurosa gestión e integridad, y al mismo tiempo dedica un gran esfuerzo y recursos para recompensar a las comunidades que le dieron la oportunidad de triunfar como empresario".
Como Cónsul Honorario del Perú, Utrilla tendrá dos funciones principales: Establecer y fortalecer lazos así como también ayudar y promover a la comunidad local.
Con el fin de establecer lazos, el Cónsul Utrilla actuará como el funcionario oficial para apoyar el desarrollo económico, científico, académico, comercial y cultural entre las dos comunidades. Con el reciente tratado de libre comercio, Utrilla promoverá el comercio bilateral para impulsar el crecimiento estratégico de las empresas; establecerá importantes conexiones en los negocios y la política; apoyará la educación y los avances tecnológicos; y, divulgará la cultura, cocina, tradiciones, turismo y estilo de vida de las personas y comunidades que representa.

Utrilla nació y creció en Lima, Perú, y es el quinto de ocho hijos. En 1994, y siguiendo su sueño de convertirse en el dueño de su propio negocio, David emigró a los Estados Unidos. En 1995, fundó U.S. Translation Company en Ogden, Utah, y actualmente sigue siendo su Presidente.
Posee vínculos muy profundos con el Perú y Utah, tanto en lo personal como en lo profesional. Ya que parte de su familia sigue en el Perú, Utrilla viaja a su país de origen varias veces al año para vacacionar, hacer negocios y con fines altruistas.

La experiencia del Cónsul Utrilla en el Perú le permite comprender las diferencias culturales entre las prácticas comerciales estadounidenses y peruanas. También se mantiene al tanto de las leyes y reglamentos que gobiernan a las organizaciones en el Perú, así como de los beneficios y dificultades para hacer negocios allí. Gracias a esto, ha logrado establecer muy buenas relaciones con personas claves en la toma de decisiones importantes, funcionarios del gobierno y empresarios.

El Cónsul Utrilla tendrá su oficina, línea telefónica y correo electrónico exclusivos para asuntos del Consulado. El Consulado estará ubicado en Salt Lake City. Las personas que necesiten comunicarse con el Sr. Utrilla, pueden hacerlo al correo electrónico
consul@peruutah.com.
 
 
 
"UNA COMUNIDAD UNIDA ES UNA COMUNIDAD FORTALECIDA"
LA RED DE PERUANOS EN UTAH LE DA UNA CORDIAL BIENVENIDA A NUESTRO CONSUL HONORARIO
DAVID UTRILLA Y AL MISMO TIEMPO LE DESEAMOS EXITOS EN SUS LABORES, COMO  LIDER Y REPRESENTANTE
DE LA COMUNIDAD PERUANA.

[RED DEMOCRATICA] Una mentira mas que importa..

 

UNA MENTIRA MAS QUE IMPORTA

 

Garcia Perez lleva la mentira en la sangre cuando dice: "Para eso hemos creado el concepto de los núcleos ejecutores, que son el grupo de ciudadanos, que en cualquier parte pueden recibir directamente dinero del gobierno central, del gobierno regional, del municipio y hacer su obra, sin estar esperando favores políticos, sin estar esperando que se fijen en ellos" Esta es una mentira mas grande que un platillo volador en marte. Estos fueron la base del programa FONCODES I y II durante el primer gobierno del chino AFF. Lo puede confirmar el BID, el Banco Mundial y el KFW Aleman. AGP no solo es un mentiroso de polendas sino un falsificador con cara dura. Es como decir que  el Chino es el creador del sistema de las AFP's cuando todo el mundo sabe que fue Chile. O peor aun, considerarse el creador de la frase del perro del hortelano. Que chistoso. Confirmado, tenemos un bufon en palacio que muchos se reiran y que saben que  las obras masivas de los nucleos ejecutores quedaron grabadas en los letreros de FONCODES a los largo del territorio hasta encumbrar a esta entidad del estado  en el primer lugar en la region en este tipo de obras sociales. Justo es reconer las buena obras. Hoy convertida en el refugio de los apristas en la repartija del poder incapaz de hacer lo que ya se hacia.

 

Lo que realmente pasa es que lo que pasa siempre en los anuncios del Jefe de Estado cuando alguien le canta una tonada como recien salida del horno: son patinadas mediaticas  sin compromiso del aparato burocratico del Estado. Cada quien hace lo que le da la gana. El es solo el lider de la corrupcion y sin CREDIBILIDAD. Necesitamos combatirla hasta lograr CORUPCION CERO con lideres nuevos  que incentiven la honestidad, funcionarios sin carnet y representantes preparados y capaces con una nueva PROPUESTA QUE ENTUSIASME con una nueva filosfia basada en el compromiso de patriotas peruanos para luchar contra la corrupcion y la pobreza como parte de la reconstruccion de un estado que cambie en forma absoluta la nueva forma de ejecutar polticas de desarrollo y crecimeinto sin diferencias ni exclusiones de su gente. Mas que anuncios pomposos e incoherentes en cada show de los medios ayayeros, necesitamos politicas publicas efectivas y eficaces establecidas por un equipo de gentes preparadas comprometidos con ejercer un buen gobierno con oportunidades para todos.

 

Tolerancia cero con la corrupcion. Hay que desinfectar palacio. Limpiar la suciedad del congreso y sacar a los jueces corruptos.

 

Keiko sabe y sabia que su educacion era con dinero de la corrupcion. Se quedo callada y hoy nuestro sistema podrido  permite esta atrocidad de ser representante. En USA los hijos de Madof- el mas grande estafador- seran denuciados por la fiscalia gringa y pronto seran encrerrados de por vida. Keiko y sus hermanos deberian trabajar gratis hasta el final.

[RED DEMOCRATICA] NOTICIAS : Immigration Crackdown With Firings, Not Raids

Immigration Crackdown With Firings, Not Raids

LOS ANGELES — A clothing maker with a vast garment factory in downtown Los Angeles is firing about 1,800 immigrant employees in the coming days — more than a quarter of its work force — after a federal investigation turned up irregularities in the identity documents the workers presented when they were hired.

The firings at the company, American Apparel, have become a showcase for the Obama administration's effort to reduce illegal immigration by forcing employers to dismiss unauthorized workers rather than by using workplace raids. The firings, however, have divided opinion in California over the effects of the new approach, especially at a time of high joblessness in the state and with a major, well-regarded employer as a target.

Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, a Democrat, called the dismissals "devastating," and his office has insisted that the federal government should focus on employers that exploit their workers. American Apparel has been lauded by city officials and business leaders for paying well above the garment industry standard, offering health benefits and not long ago giving $18 million in stock to its workers.

But opponents of illegal immigration, including Representative Brian P. Bilbray, a Republican from San Diego who is chairman of a House caucus that opposes efforts to extend legal status to illegal immigrants, back the enforcement effort. They say American Apparel is typical of many companies that, in Mr. Bilbray's words, have "become addicted to illegal labor."

"Of course it's a good idea," Mr. Bilbray said of the crackdown. "They seem to think that somehow the law doesn't matter, that crossing the line from legal to illegal is not a big deal."

In July, the federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency, known as ICE, opened audits of employment records similar to the one at American Apparel at 654 companies around the country. John T. Morton, who, as assistant secretary of homeland security, runs ICE, said the audits covered all types of employers with immigrant workers, including many like American Apparel that were not shadowy sweatshops or serial violators of labor codes.

The investigation at American Apparel was started 17 months ago, under President George W. Bush. Obama administration officials point out that they have not followed the Bush pattern of concluding such investigations with a mass roundup of workers. Those raids drew criticism for damaging businesses and dividing immigrant families.

Immigration officials said they would now focus on employers, primarily wielding the threat of civil complaints and fines, instead of raids and worker deportation.

"Now all manner of companies face the very real possibility that the government, using our basic civil powers, is going to come knocking on the door," Mr. Morton said.

The goal, he said, is to create "a truly national deterrent" to hiring unauthorized labor that would "change the practices of American employers as a class."

The employees being fired from American Apparel could not resolve discrepancies that investigators discovered in documents they had presented at hiring and in federal Social Security or immigration records — probably because the documents were fake. Peter Schey, a lawyer for American Apparel, said that ICE had cited deficiencies in the company's record keeping, but that the authorities had not accused it of knowingly hiring illegal workers. A fine threatened by the agency was withdrawn, Mr. Schey said.

After months of discussions with ICE officials, the company moved on its own to terminate the workers because, Mr. Schey said, federal guidelines for such cases were "in a shambles." The Bush administration proposed rules for employers to follow when workers' documents did not match, but a federal court halted the effort and the Obama administration decided to abandon it.

With its bright-pink, seven-story sewing plant in the center of Los Angeles, American Apparel is one of the biggest manufacturing employers in the city, and makes a selling point of the "Made in U.S.A." labels in its racy T-shirts and miniskirts. Dov Charney, the company's chief executive, has campaigned, in T-shirt logos and eye-catching advertisements, to "legalize L.A.," by granting legal status to illegal immigrants, a policy President Obama supports.

Since the audit began, Mr. Charney has treaded carefully, eager to show that his publicly traded company is obeying the law, and to reassure investors that the loss of so many workers will not damage the business, since production has slowed already with the recession.

But Mr. Charney is also questioning why federal authorities made a target of his company. Over the summer he joined his workers in a street protest against the firings. Because the immigration investigation is still under way, Mr. Charney declined to be interviewed for this article but did respond in an e-mail message.

The firings "will not help the economy, will not make us safer," he said.

"No matter how we choose to define or label them," he said, illegal immigrants "are hard-working, taxpaying workers."

On a recent visit to American Apparel's factory floors here, amid the whirring of sewing machines and the whooshing of cooling fans, a murmur of many languages rose: mostly Spanish, but also Chinese, Korean, Vietnamese and Portuguese. Masseurs were offering 20-minute massages for sewers in need of a break.

But there was also a mood of mourning, as work was interrupted with farewell parties. The majority of workers losing their jobs are women, most of whom are working to support families. Many departing workers have been with the company for a decade or more.

Executives said many workers had learned skills specific to a proprietary production system that allows American Apparel to make 250,000 garments a week in Los Angeles, while keeping prices competitive with imports from places like China.

Some workers who are leaving said the company had been a close-knit community for them. Jesús, 30, originally from Puebla, Mexico, said he was hired 10 years ago as a sewing machine operator, then worked and studied his way up to an office job as coordinating manager.

"I learned how to think here," said Jesús, who would not reveal his last name because of his illegal status.

The company provides health and life insurance, he said, and he earns about $900 a week, with taxes deducted from his paycheck.

Like many others, Jesús said his next move was to hunt for work in Los Angeles. He will not return to Mexico, he said, because he is gay and fears discrimination.

"There they treat you and judge you without even knowing you," Jesús said.

He said several job offers from mainstream garment makers in this country had been withdrawn once he was asked for documents.

"Being realistic," he said, "I guess I'm going to have to go to one of those sweatshop companies where I'm going to get paid under the table."

ICE has made no arrests so far at the factory. But Mr. Morton of ICE said the agency would not rule out pursuing workers proven to be illegal immigrants.

Mr. Schey said company human resources managers had added new scrutiny to hiring procedures. But workers facing dismissal pointed to the line of job applicants outside the factory one recent day, who, like many of them, were almost all Spanish-speaking immigrants.

"I think the Americans think that garment sewing is demeaning work," said Francisco, 38, a Guatemalan with nine years at the plant who is being forced to leave.

A top supervisor, he is training new employees to replace him.
