Giorgio Valentini, the World Bank’s Country Representative for Suriname and Guyana says that the entity sees as credible, reports from international institutions.Valentini was yesterday asked the question specifically as it relates to the United States State Department’s 2010 Trafficking in Persons (TIP) report which Human Services and Social Security Minister Priya Manickchand has dismissed as “crap.”Valentini did say that they are not currently doing any social work in Guyana and as such the TIP report was not an issue.He did state that as it relates to any possible sanctions as a result of Guyana’s ranking on the TIP report, Cheap NFL Jerseys Supply, it will ultimately be the United States that will have to ask either the IMF or the World Bank to impose any suspensions, but to the best of his knowledge, there have been no such communications.When asked about the Transparency International and Amnesty International reports and if there was any skepticism about dealing with Guyana as a result of the negative picture painted by those reports, he said there was none.Valentini said that the World Bank wants to be partners with countries such as Guyana to help to ensure that there is value for money in their economic development and governance mechanism, among other undertakings.He said that the World Bank is not there as a critic but rather a partner.The United States, through its Ambassador at Large Luis C De Baca, said that it has no apology to offer Guyana and would not be withdrawing its findings on trafficking in persons here.The 2010 report named Guyana as a source country for men, women, and children subjected to trafficking in persons, specifically conditions of forced prostitution and forced labour.De Baca said the report was prepared after talks with government officials, the international community, non-governmental organizations, civil society and churches.Amnesty International and Transparency International have also painted Guyana in extremely negative spotlight but the ruling administration has dismissed them.

By Attorney Gail SeeramWe all know that if you are born in the United States, then you are a U.S. citizen by birth under the Fourteenth amendment of the U.S. Constitution.  Note, if you are born in the United States, your parent’s immigration status is irrelevant in determining whether you are a U.S. citizen by birth.  If you are born in the United States, your birth certificate is proof of your U.S. citizenship.In certain cases, a child born outside the U.S., where one or both parents are U.S. citizens, may acquire U.S. citizenship at birth.  The child may still acquire U.S. citizenship if born out-of-wedlock.The U.S. immigration laws require the U.S. citizen parent to reside or be physically present in the U.S. for certain periods prior to the birth of the child so that he or she may “transmit” citizenship.  The specific requirements depend on the law in effect at the time of the child’s birth.  A child born outside the U.S. who acquires citizenship is a citizen at the moment of birth and does not need a certificate of citizenship.  In the situation where a child is born abroad to a U.S. citizen, it is recommended to report the birth to the local U.S. Embassy and submit required evidence to prove the child is a U.S. citizen.Further, a child born outside the U.S. may become a U.S. citizen by virtue of his or her parent’s naturalization.  One becomes a naturalized U.S. citizen when they apply for U.S. citizenship after residing as a permanent resident for five years (three years if married to a U.S. citizen), pass a reading/writing test and government history test, and demonstrate good moral character.A child could be a derivative U.S. citizen through their parent’s naturalization while the child was under age 18 and the child resided in the U.S. after lawful admission as a permanent resident (green card holder).  The law before June 2001 required both parents, or the parent with legal custody, to be naturalized U.S. citizens before the child’s eighteenth birthday.  The prior law required proving which parent had legal custody where the child is born out-of-wedlock or parents were legally separated or divorce.The law since June 2001 allows for a child to derive citizenship as long as one parent is a citizen by birth or naturalization, the child is under age 18, the child is residing in the U.S. as a lawful permanent resident, and the child is in the legal and physical custody of the U.S. citizen parent.A child deriving U.S. citizenship in this manner may apply directly for a U.S. passport.  Also, the child can apply for a Certificate of Citizenship with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.Lastly, step-children of a U.S. citizen are precluded from deriving or acquiring U.S. citizenship from their step-parent because a step-child is not within the definition of a “child” for purposes of automatic citizenship.  Again, these rules are quite complex and the question of whether a child is a U.S. citizen through birth to U.S. citizen parents depends on the laws in effect when the child was born or the laws in effect when the parent became a naturalized U.S. citizen.For more information, Miguel Montero Cubs Jersey, contact Gail Law Firm:Email: [email protected]Phone: 1-877-GAIL-LAW or 407-292-7730www.MyOrlandoImmigrationLawyer.comFREE in-office consultation – FREE Live Chat

WILLIAMSBURG, CORENTYNE – The New Jersey Arya Samaj Humanitarian Mission 2010 got started last Tuesday in East Berbice. Head of the group, Pandit Suresh Sugrim reiterated the importance of empowering persons for survival. This year, less money would be expended on handouts and more would be invested in teaching persons skills needed for their existence.Against that backdrop, five workshops were held between last Wednesday and Saturday at Port Mourant, Canefield in East Canje, the Smythfield Drop-In Center at New Amsterdam, Rose Hall Town and Winsor Forest, Demerara respectively.Pandit Suresh Sugrim, Trinemcon Tracey Martin and her aunt Alexis WilliamsPandit Sugrim’s son, a Staff Sergeant of the United States Army, Yogeshwar Sugrim, is the co-ordinator of the sessions, which focus on leadership and peer pressure. These workshops have been organised by the local chapter of the Humanitarian Mission. Some 1, 500 persons attended the sessions and were each given little tokens.Meanwhile, 15-year old Trinemcon Tracey Martin of Lot 46 Stanleytown, New Amsterdam received a grocery hamper last Tuesday. The girl was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma and her relatives were told there is no hope for her. Her family, besides being impecunious, is optimistic that she could be given a second chance if only medical experts are willing to accept the challenge.The child’s aunt, Alexis Williams of 1399 Central Amelia’s Ward, Linden has only known her for 10 years. Mrs. Williams became involved in 2008 and has been accompanying Tracey to all doctors’ appointments ever since. She explained that periodic clinical checks were done over a two-year period in Georgetown from 2008. In 2009, based on the results of a biopsy she was diagnosed and chemotherapy was administered. Six cycles were recommended for Tracey, starting in June and ending in January 2010. According to Williams, in the final analysis, the chemotherapy was not successful and the girl’s condition is deteriorating as the cancer continues to have its way.Tracey Martin has no birth certificate. Even the correct spelling of her name could not be ascertained. On almost every medical document the family presented to Kaieteur News the spelling of the child’s name was different.According to Tracey’s sister, 25-year old Kerrenca Schultz, their mother – Debra Schultz is 50-years old and has a hearing impairment. Life for the family is no one’s dream.“My mother works for $3, 500 a week. She does clean the Church and catch she hand washing and so for people. She got to mind five children in all. My sister is 17, she is disabled and she does catch fits a lot. My nine-year old brother got asthma. My sister is seven her face twist up bad (Down’s Syndrome). The 14-year old boy is ok. Is eight of us in all.”Kerrenca Schultz, is also a single parent and lives in the same home with her two children who are one and six years old.“I does catch me hand when I can. My mother does cook one time a day. She cook like a pint of rice or so. They eat that and then drink a cup of water in the night and go to bed. That is how it is, I won’t lie to you.”Mrs. Williams, who travelled to New Amsterdam, expressed gratitude to the members of the Mission and called the gesture a blessing for the family.“We are indeed thankful to the Arya Samaj Humanitarian Mission for their generosity. The hamper means a lot to my niece.”Pandit Sugrim made a promise to ensure that the child receives a regular supply of groceries and to assist in any other way possible. The group is to return tomorrow to hand over addition items.Another recipient was 11-year old Ervin Dasratt, who attained 516 marks at this year’s National Grade Six Assessment and was awarded a place at the St. Rose’s High School. He is said to be the top student of the Cropper Primary School located at Albion. But his father, Baichan Dasratt, who is incapacitated after an accident, said that due to financial constraints, his son cannot accept the place at St. Rose’s High or even a spot at the President’s College.“We cannot afford the expense for him to travel and all that. I am disabled. I am in a wheelchair. I also use crutches. I suffered a broken hip, from the knee to the ankle was dislocated and carries steel. I have been unemployed since then and my wife takes care of the family. She is the lone bread-winner.”The Humanitarian Mission has made the necessary arrangements for the family to purchase a bicycle, uniforms and other paraphernalia with a voucher payable to the Alim Shaw Store at Rose Hall Town. The Mission would sponsor Ervin Dasratt for the next five years when he is expected to complete his secondary education.“He has a vision and we are prepared to work with this child to ensure that he accomplishes his dream of being a doctor, ” Pandit Sugrim said.During the past six days Pandit Sugrim and his team met with shut-ins from Belvedere Squatting Area, Rose Hall Town, Kildonan and Nurney on the Corentyne and Victoria Village on the East Coast of Demerara. One such is Doris Thomas of Victoria. She lost both legs and is said to be diabetic. The Humanitarian Mission is making the necessary arrangements to construct a two-bedroom home for her. Arrangements are being finalised.Also on the itinerary for 2010 would be a walk-a-thon at Leonora on the West Coast of Demerara next Friday. This is aimed at casting the spotlight on circumstances that lead to domestic abuse, suicide, child labour, alcoholism among other issues.The annual blood drive, done in collaboration with the Ministry of Health, is set for August 12th at Williamsburg. This week, evaluations are being made to commence skill-training sessions in the field of information technology, sewing, remedial classes, joinery, carpentry and masonry. These classes are being done in tandem with Food for the Poor.The Arya Samaj would be celebrating 100 years in existence in Guyana. Pandit Sugrim said that later this year his team would work towards empowering another batch of persons for the centennial observance.“A hungry man will not pray because he is focusing on how to get a meal. But a man with a full stomach would want to pray and give thanks. So what we are doing is teaching people of all races and religions to pray whether they are in need or not. These gestures are made possible through the benevolence of our overseas Guyanese brothers and sisters.”The Humanitarian Mission is known for the aid it renders to families in need in the form of low-cost houses, vouchers for food and education and cash to offset medical expenses.Pandit Sugrim said some collaboration would be done with Help and Shelter. Humanitarian Mission 2010 would conclude on August 15th.Persons in special circumstances who are in need of help can contact Pandit Sugrim on telephone number 668-4338.************************************************** ****** Aditya Foundation reaches out to top studentsBATH SETTLEMENT, WEST COAST BERBICE – The Aditya Kids Trust Fund Foundation recently handed over a laptop computer to the top performer of the Mortice Primary School, Mahaicony at this year’s National Grade Six Assessment.Twelve-year old Ghanraj Haimwant of Wash Clothes, Mahaicony attained 496 marks.
