‘There’s so much at stake here’

first_img– Advertisement – Chavez’s family first shared their story in a digital ad from pro-immigrant group United We Dream Action (UWDA) PAC last month. Her little brother, 18-year old U.S. citizen Teddy, was set to cast a vote in an election for the very first time. Chavez told BuzzFeed News that the family was so excited, they prominently displayed his voter registration document like a photograph.“My parents were so proud about him registering to vote,” she continued in the report. “Once he got his voter registration card, my dad laminated it, he put in a little frame, and when he went to go vote a couple of days ago, he actually came back with four ‘future voter’ stickers for my family.”- Advertisement – The family has depended on Teddy to be their voice amid so much uncertainty. Like he said in the UWDA PAC video last month, both of their parents lost their jobs amid the novel coronavirus pandemic, leaving Chavez as the sole person in the family bringing in an income. “I became the sole provider of my family overnight,” she told BuzzFeed News—and all while also trying to finish school, too.But despite these hurdles, Chavez has been determined to fight for her family through her work with UWDA PAC and voting out impeached president Donald Trump. “[W]e have a president that has been so brutally racist, has been very demeaning toward immigrants, that has been on the track to dismantle DACA,” she continued. Even though the Supreme Court this past summer ruled the Trump administration unlawfully ended the program, he’s defied the ruling simply because he didn’t like it. So instead of fully reinstating DACA like he’s under order to (something that would open the program to thousands of new applicants), his administration under unlawfully appointed acting Department of Homeland Security Sec. Chad Wolf is further decimating what currently stands. Just this week, a number of states filed legal action challenging his changes. – Advertisement –center_img BuzzFeed News reports Chavez is “still optimistic” the work paid off, saying she’s “hopeful that the community won.” Should former Vice President Joe Biden emerge victorious—and it’s looking hopeful for us, folks—there are steps he can immediately take to protect the Chavez family, including fully reinstating the DACA program and removing the threat of deportation from her parents and all families everywhere.In the meantime, they join the millions all across the country who put their heart and soul into this race and now hope for the best in a vote counting process that could take several days.“Being with my family tonight, it’s my healing,” Chavez told BuzzFeed News during election night. “It’s my coping mechanism, being able to be with loved ones during times of hardship. Whatever outcome happens, we’re still going to be here together, and we’re gonna keep on fighting. My family won’t stop until we’re all protected.”- Advertisement –last_img read more

Wenger: Henry will return in future

first_img Henry had hinted during a recent interview with French newspaper L’Equipe he could be interested in a future coaching role with the Gunners, and Wenger insisted on Tuesday that Henry’s return is a certainty when asked about a reunion with the former France striker. “He is an Arsenal man. The best moment certainly of his life and of his career has been experienced here,” Wenger said at a press conference ahead of Arsenal’s Barclays Premier League encounter against Southampton on Wednesday. “Certainly one day he will come back here. In what role I don’t know, that is what he has to think about: what direction he wants to give to his next life.” Henry joined the Red Bulls in 2010 following a successful playing career in Europe, where he was an integral part of Arsenal’s ‘Invincibles’ side and also went on to win the 2009 Champions League with Barcelona. The 37-year-old, a member of Les Bleus’ 1998 World Cup-winning squad, revealed he would now ”take the next few weeks to reflect” before deciding on his next career move after the Red Bulls’ MLS Cup campaign ended with a 4-3 aggregate defeat to rivals the New England Revolution in the Eastern Conference Championship play-off. Monday’s statement from Henry read: ”I am taking this opportunity to announce that unfortunately Saturday was my last game for the New York Red Bulls. ”The decision has always been that I would leave after the duration of my contract and although that was never going to change, I didn’t want it to distract from the progress of the team. ”I have immensely enjoyed my four-and-a-half years here and would like to thank everyone involved with this club who has made my time here so enjoyable. Henry confirmed on Monday that he will leave the New York Red Bulls after four-and-a-half years with the Major League Soccer franchise, prompting speculation that a return to Arsenal could be in the offing. The Gunners’ all-time record goal scorer has retained close links with the club since leaving for Barcelona in 2007 and trained at their Hertfordshire base before a brief loan spell during January 2012. ”Thanks must go particularly to Erik Soler, Hans Backe, Gerard Houllier, Andy Roxburgh, Mike Petke, all my team-mates, the technical staff, medical staff, all the personnel who work for the Red Bull organisation, the MLS and of course the owner Mr (Dietrich) Mateschitz, whose vision and passion brought me to this wonderful city. ”A special mention must go to the Red Bull fans who have supported this team through the good, the bad and the ugly times in the sun, rain and snow. You guys have really meant a lot to me and thank you for all your wonderful support. ”I will now take the next few weeks to reflect and decide on the next chapter of my career.” Wenger feels Henry could make a successful transition into the dugout. He said: “Thierry has all the qualities because he is intelligent, committed, he loves the game. He just has to think, ‘Do I want to sacrifice all the rest of my life to be involved in that job?'” Theoretically Arsenal could sign Henry as a free agent. Wenger believes Henry has the capability to play at the required level still, but remains uncertain if he would want to. “Yes (he can still do a job as a player), but 37 today in the Premier League… I don’t think he wants to do that again. “Thierry has given a lot, he has come out (of the Premier League) with an image that is fantastic. I am not sure that he wants to play again in the Premier League.” Asked by Press Association Sport how he would react if Henry was to call him and ask to come back to the squad, Wenger said: “I don’t think he wants to carry on. That is a virtual world.” Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger believes Thierry Henry will “certainly” return to the club in some capacity in the future. Press Associationlast_img read more
