NOW we know why George W. Bush hired a new press secretary in Tony Snow. The president’s 17-minute talk Monday on immigration was the best speech of his life. The most significant positive of the speech was that he got the priorities right. “First, the United States must secure its borders. This is a basic responsibility of a sovereign nation. It is also an urgent requirement of our national security,” Bush said. Enforcement was his first of five goals in the comprehensive program he wants Congress to pass. By the end of 2008, Bush has promised to hire and train 6,000 new Border Patrol officers, and back them up with fences, new roads along the border, motion sensors, infrared cameras and aerial vehicles. Meanwhile, an equal number of National Guard troops will be temporarily assigned for support duty along the border. Bush’s second goal is the creation of a temporary-worker program “that would create a legal path for foreign workers to enter our country in an orderly way, for a limited period of time.” The program would reduce the appeal of using human smugglers, and would ease the financial burden on state and local governments by “replacing illegal workers with lawful taxpayers.” Will employers really be forced to hire only legal workers, with stiff penalties for those who ignore the law? Can a total of 18,000 border agents really seal the border, or will there be a necessity of building a wall (a word missing from Bush’s speech)? The answer lies in the priority American voters will place upon this issue on a long-term basis. Jennifer Solis was student body president of Belmont High School in 2003-04 and is now a pre-med student.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREBasketball roundup: Sierra Canyon, Birmingham set to face off in tournament quarterfinalsHolding employers accountable for the workers they hire is the third goal. Existing law from the 1986 Reagan amnesty already forbids the hiring of undocumented workers, so Bush stated that a key requirement for enforcement would be a tamper-proof, biometric identification card for every legal foreign worker. The president’s fourth part of the plan would not give an automatic path for citizenship to illegals already here. Instead, it would offer legalization for illegal immigrants who pay penalties for breaking the law, pay taxes and learn English. Finally, Bush’s fifth goal would be to help newcomers assimilate into our society by having Congress define a path to citizenship (a phrase he did not use in his speech). Bush closed his speech by recognizing the importance of recruiting undocumented young persons into the military, by telling the story of a young man from Mexico who grew up picking crops, then joined the Marines. He was wounded in Iraq, sent to Bethesda Naval Hospital, where he met the president. Bush said that he was honored to stand beside the Marine when he took the oath of citizenship. The president described immigrants as “people willing to risk everything for the dream of freedom. And America remains what she has always been – the great hope on the horizon, an open door to the future, a blessed and promised land.” Democrats in Congress will be hard-pressed to disagree with these goals and priorities. Republicans will mumble, “Why did he wait so long to get it right?” But the big question is whether the administration, now and in the future, will have the willingness to follow through with the key requirements of immigration reform.
SHEEPHAVEN SUB AQUA CLUB NOTES.Sheephaven SAC dived The Arch behind Horn Head on Saturday morning in excellent weather and sea conditions. They left Downings in sunshine and took dive boat Bríd around to The Arch, where they conducted a two stick dive under the leadership of Paul Mc Cabe. Dive times of nearly 50 minutes were recorded in depths of 25 metres, with in-water visibility that was very good at nearly 10 metres horizontally, while water temperature remains a comfortable 10 degrees Celsius.The Arch is only accessible in good sea conditions as it very exposed to swell, but when dived it is has a wonderful combination of rock formation features that sets it out as one of the best sites in the region.Starting from the eastern side of The Arch in 10 metres the dive profile rises up to go through the underway lip of the Arch and after that it falls away quickly to over 20 metres.The sea bed is a mixture of large rock slabs and big cobbles until it rises up to 10 metres where there is an extensive kelp park. If the diver keeps to their right they will begin to descend to 25 metres and onto an extensive area of gullies and rock pavements, which provide cover for a considerable amount of Ballan Wrasee and Pollock. Alternatively if the diver goes to their left they can enter a cave that is worth the dive in its own right.Non-fish marine life of note included the very delicate looking Gas Lamp Sea Squirts, as well as various Anemones and Sponges. Other divers on-site this morning included Nicky Jackson and his crew and two boat loads of visiting divers from Alphamarine SAC from Co. Meath.On Sunday with the continuation of the excellent weather and sea conditions Sheephaven divers got to dive another of the iconic dive sites around the region when they got onto The Kalliopis.They left Mevagh with two dive boats, Áine and Bríd and travelled around to Tormore just north of the Rosguill Peninsula, where the wreck of the Kalliopis lies in depths between 15 and 20 metres.The dive was conducted in two sticks, with maximum dive times of around 40 minutes in good water conditions. Water temperature was 11 degrees Celsius, while in-water visibility as under 10 metres.It is always a thrill to dive on a wreck and this one has a lot of its wreckage remaining on site, including its oil fired boilers, steam engine and propeller shaft in one area of the site and the bow plates along with windlass and anchor chains it another part of the site. Another wonderful Donegal dive weekend conducted in perfect weather conditions. On Monday Sheephaven Search and Recovery Unit was called out by the Irish Coast Guard to render assistance in the search for a missing person, feared lost near Scraggy Bay on the western side of Lough Swilly.In a joint operation involving the Lough Swilly RNLI lifeboat, the Derek Bullivant, the local Coast Guard Unit from Mulroy Bay and the Irish Coast Guard helicopter the casualty was recovered by the Sheephaven Search and Recovery unit after a dive search of over one hour’s duration.Sheephaven SAR wishes to extend their thanks to all involved for the use of local facilities and boat, which were an essential part of the speedy conclusion of this search and the return of the casualty to his family.Finally the club wishes to express their sincere condolences to the family and friends of the casualty, Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam.

With a ₹100 crore budget, Gujarat and the Centre are jointly developing the historical and ancient town of Vadnagar, Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s birth place, as a major tourist hub. The town full of sites related to Hinduism and Buddhism is being showcased as a heritage destination.Among the eight projects in the works are the Vadnagar railway station, where Prime Minister Narendra Modi once sold tea while helping his father who used to run a tea stall at the railway station during his childhood. The projects cover Vadnagar’s famous Kirti Toran, Sharmishtha lake, Hatkeshwar Temple and archaeological sites.On February 3, Gujarat Chief Secretary J.N. Singh and Union Culture Secretary Raghavendra Singh visited the town to inspect the projects being developed under the Union government’s Swadesh Darshan scheme. A team of archaeologists and other experts accompanied the senior officials.“There are eight tourism-related projects which are being developed in Vadnagar. We are developing a heritage circuit from Vadnagar to Modhera Sun Temple and the historical step well in Patan,” Dr. Singh told The Hindu.The famous Chinese traveller Hiuen Tsang who visited the place around AD 640 referred to it as Anandpur. He has recorded the existence of 10 Buddhist monasteries and said that about 100 monks were staying in them.“The government of India has allotted ₹100 crore to fund the tourism-related projects in Vadnagar and develop a heritage circuit in North Gujarat,” said S.J. Hyder, Gujarat’s Principal Secretary, Tourism.
Normal life here was affected due to a strike called by separatists to protest the Supreme Court’s decision to stay an FIR against Army personnel in the Shopian firing, while restrictions were imposed in parts of the city to maintain law and order.According to a police official, strict restrictions under CrPC Section 144 have been imposed in Nowhatta, Rainawari, Khanyar, Safakadal and MR Gunj police station areas of the city, while partial restrictions were in force in Maisuma and Kralkhud areas.Restrictions have been imposed as a precautionary measure to maintain law and order, he said.Normal life was affected elsewhere in the city as most of the shops, business establishments and fuel stations remained shut, while public transport was off the roads, the official said.However, private cars, cabs and auto-rickshaws were seen plying in many areas of the city, he said, adding similar reports were received from other district headquarters of the Valley.Separatist groups on Thursday had called for a complete shutdown in Kashmir to protest against the court’s decision. The Joint Resistance Leadership, comprising Syed Ali Shah Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Mohammad Yasin Malik, had issued a statement criticising the Supreme Court for restraining the State Police from taking any coercive steps against Army officers accused in the Shopian firing case. Three civilians were killed when Army personnel fired at a stone-pelting mob in Ganovpora village in Shopian on January 27, prompting Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti to order an inquiry into the incident.The FIR was registered against personnel of 10 Garhwal Rifles, including Major Aditya Kumar, under sections 302 (murder) and 307 (attempt to murder) of the Ranbir Penal Code.Father of Major Kumar, the officer named in the FIR, had approached the Supreme Court seeking the FIR be quashed. The Supreme Court on February 12 restrained the Jammu and Kashmir Police from taking any “coercive steps” against Army officers and asked the State government to file a response within two weeks.CRPF officer found dead An Assistant Sub-Inspector of the CRPF was found dead under suspicious circumstances in a stream along the Jammu-Srinagar National Highway, police said.The body of ASI Harinder Singh, posted with the 177th battalion of the CRPF, was found in the stream at Kelamore in Ramban district, a police official said.
Two men have been sentenced for life while another person received a 16-year jail term for killing a 74-year-old jeweler in Leicester in January this year.Thomas Jervis, 24, and Charles Mcauley, 20, were both sentenced to life imprisonment at Birmingham Crown Court on Sept. 10 after being found guilty of killing Ramniklal Jogiya, who was abducted on his way back from his shop at Belgrave Road on Jan. 24, 2018. Jogiya was later found dead in a lane nearby.Jervis was ordered to serve a minimum of 33 years while Mcauley was ordered to serve a minimum of 30 years in prison. Callan Reeve, 20, who was found guilty of Jogiya’s manslaughter, was sentenced to 16 years in prison at the court hearing.The three, who had previously admitted to abduction and robbery of Jogiya, were convicted following a five-week trial at the same court which reached its conclusion on Aug. 8.The trial had heard how Jervis, of Enderby Road, Whetstone, Leicester; Mcauley, of Gooding Avenue, Leicester; and Reeve, of Biddle Road, Leicester, were part of a gang who had spent weeks planning to rob a safe at Jogiya’s jewelry shop.A fourth defendant, Javon Roach, 30, was acquitted of all charges.The court heard that the convicted murderers bundled Jogiya in a van and threw his mobile phone away, before torturing and beating him in an attempt to get the security codes for the alarm system and safe at his shop. The men wanted to steal gold jewelry worth £200,000 that was kept in the safe, the court was told, according to the BBC.A CCTV camera footage showed Jogiya locking up the shop and beginning his walk back to his house, while other images showed three men jumping out of a white transit van parked on Brandon Street and bundling him into a vehicle. Another footage showed that about 50 minutes later, a man dressed in a burka and pulling a shopping trolley entered Jogiya’s shop. This person was seen deactivating the shop alarm, going to the back of the shop where the safe was kept, and emerging a little while later, seemingly empty-handed.It was later discovered that, despite their meticulous planning, the gang had not realized that the safe was on a 12-hour time delay and so they could not break into the safe and collect the Asian gold inside it, the court was informed.https://www.facebook.com/leicspolice/videos/10156596412186170/Earlier, a statement written by the victim’s family and read out by prosecutor James House conveyed what happened on the fatal night, Leicestershire Live reported. It said, “We were taken to Leicester Royal Infirmary and I was asked to identify my dad.“Nothing could prepare us for what we saw. So many thoughts were racing through our minds as what we did know was that he had suffered.“We could see terrible injuries on his face.”Jogiya suffered a total of 27 injuries, including broken ribs, wounds to his face, hands and arms, and died from a major brain injury caused by a severe assault to his head.“These men had planned to kidnap and rob Mr Jogiya, but it went tragically wrong. They launched a sustained and ferocious attack on Mr Jogiya which ultimately killed him,” DCI David Swift-Rollinson, the detective who led the investigation, said. Related ItemsLeicesterUnited Kingdom
