Teen Starts Website Aimed At Helping Migrant Children Deal With Parents’ Possible Deportation

The most reliable and balanced news aggregation service in the world, RWN offers the following information published by THE HILL.

A Connecticut high school student has founded a website aimed at helping young children and teenagers deal with the emotional trauma caused by a parent or family member being deported.

Jody Bell, a 16-year-old rising senior at Greenwich High School, told The Associated Press that she created In Case Of Deportation (ICOD) as a resource for young people after hearing firsthand from classmates who were afraid to turn to school authorities for help after a parent is deported.

“They would talk to close friends, like me and some others,” Bell told the AP. “And that, I think, was one of the first times that I recognized that this was an issue.”

Her website states that she began the project during her sophomore year with the mission to “give children more power to start a discussion about deportation, and give them the resources and support that they need to follow through and take initiative to prepare for these emergency situations.”

“I began the creation of I.C.O.D. during my sophomore year of high school, where I noticed many of my peers were anxious about the potential deportation of their undocumented parents,” Bell explains on the website. “They would come to me and other high school friends with this issue, as they were uncomfortable talking to adults about the legal status of their parents.”

Bell told the AP that she created the website after taking a program billed as a “12-week mini-MBA” with Girls With Impact, an organization that provides skill training for young women in preparation for the business world.

Sections on the website explain the process of deportation in simple language and help children prepare emergency plans for use in the event that a parent is deported.

The AP reported that Bell launched the project this month amid criticism of the Trump administration’s “zero tolerance” border policy mandating prosecution of all immigrants suspected of illegally entering the U.S.

The policy led to thousands of children being separated from their parents at the border upon entering the U.S. before the president signed an executive order halting the separations amid strong criticism from both Republicans and Democrats.

Former Facebook Security Chief Just Blindsided Google CEO With Earth Shattering Claim

Many have been critical of Google’s plan to launch a censored search engine in China, now a former Facebook executive has called out Google’s CEO for lying about the company’s motives.
Facebook’s former security chief Alex Stamos took to Twitter recently to attack Google CEO Sundar Pichai for his comments defending the company’s decision to move into the China market with its censored search engine known as “Project Dragonfly,” Silicon Beat reports.

In a recent interview with the New York Times, Pichai stated that Google was “committed to serving users in China” and compared Chinese censorship laws to the “right to be forgotten” law in the European Union. Pichai received severe criticism for this comparison, both internally and from those outside of Google.

“Tech companies constantly walk a difficult path between complying with local law and protecting human rights,” Stamos tweeted Thursday. “For Sundar to compare the “right to be forgotten” (which I agree is problematic) with censorship in China is, at best, amoral and mendacious.”

Stamos further added that: “China’s censorship regime is a tool to maintain the absolute control of the party-state and is in no way comparable,” to the right to be forgotten law.

Google software engineer Colin McMillen tweeted: “It is extremely bad that Sundar appears to either think that RTBF is morally equivalent to government surveillance & censorship, or that he appears to think that nobody will notice this analogy is extremely inaccurate.”

The Eagles offense struggled on Sunday night, and put up their fair share of bad plays. However, their celebration game was definitely on point.

The defending Super Bowl champs hosted the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday Night Football. Which, also happened to be on Veterans Day. While the first part of the game brought forth precious little in terms of offensive output. The second half saw a burst of scoring from both teams and, a salute to our veterans from the entire Eagles offense:

The NFL has certainly done its fair share of damage in tarnishing the celebration of our flag, anthem, and military, by protesting during the national anthem. However, with those protests having all but disappeared, it would be good for the NFL to work towards resuming its former place as the primary celebrators of our flag and country, in American sports.

Sunday night was a good start.
