GST return filing remains less than desired GSTR3B compliance around 60 pc

first_imgNew Delhi: iTwo years after the landmark goods and services tax (GST) amalgamated 17 different central and state levies, returns filing under the new indirect tax regime continues to be wobbly with filings showing spikes every three months but continue to be less than desired, data analysis showed. Also, compliance in filing summary sales return GSTR-3B has not improved much since July 2017, as businesses continue to file it after the monthly due date, with compliance averaging at around 60 per cent. Also Read – Maruti cuts production for 8th straight month in Sep Analysis of data released by Goods and Services Tax Network (GSTN) showed that while on an average, 50 per cent of the registered taxpayers filed GSTR-3B within due date in July 2017, the number increased to around 85 per cent as on June 23, 2019. Similarly, 65 per cent of taxpayers filed within due date in July 2018, a total of 85 per cent of the eligible taxpayers have filed it as on June 23, 2019. Similar trend continued in April, with less than 60 per cent of eligible taxpayers filing returns within due date, and the total number of GSTR-3B filed increased to nearly 80 per cent as on June 23, 2019.

According to GST laws, the fee for late filing of the returns is Rs 25 per day for Central GST (CGST) and an equal amount under State GST (SGST). However, those businesses who have to file returns but have ‘nil’ tax liability would have to pay a fine of Rs 10 under CGST law, and an equal amount under SGST law. An analysis of GSTR-1 filing trend showed that final sales return filed by businesses spiked every quarter, reflecting that composition scheme dealers and small businesses file their returns. However, there is still a huge divergence in the number of businesses who are eligible to file GSTR-1 and those who actually file it. The data showed that while a little over 1 crore businesses were eligible to file GSTR-1 as of March 2019, only a little over 65 lakh have actually filed it. Similarly for December 2018, while about 1 crore businesses were required to file GSTR-1, about 75 lakh have filed it till June 23, 2019. In the current financial year, while around 55 lakh businesses were eligible to file GSTR-1, about 25 lakh and 20 lakh businesses have filed the return in April and May, respectively. The new indirect tax regime was rolled out on July 1, 2017. From just 38.51 lakh businesses registered under GST then, the number has gone up to a whopping over 1.22 crore.last_img read more

Game Of Thrones Natalia Tena Supports Survival International Campaign

first_imgGame of Thrones and Harry Potter star Natalia Tena has lent her support to a Survival International campaign to finally bring the killers of three Colombian Indian leaders to justice.Twenty-two years ago, in November 1990, Angel María Torres and two other leaders of Colombia’s Arhuaco tribe were kidnapped, tortured and killed. They were travelling from their home in Colombia’s northern Sierra Nevada region to the capital Bogotá when they were detained by the army. Shortly after their disappearance, their corpses were found with signs of severe torture.In a rare interview, Angel María Torres’s widow Dilia has spoken of the grief and despair of the last 22 years.‘My husband’s hair was gone and his fingers were missing (…) I have lost my husband and all hope of a life with my partner and family.’ Dilia Torres told Survival.The appeal is supported with a voice-over by Game of Thrones and Harry Potter star Natalia Tena.Following an international campaign by Survival, its supporters and the Arhuaco, the United Nations and the Colombian government upheld the army’s responsibility for the men’s death. However no-one has been punished for the crime.Colombia’s indigenous peoples are caught in the cross-fire of Colombia’s civil war, and attacks on them continue. In November, Arhuaco leader Rogelio Mejia was driving in a car with a Survival researcher when the vehicle was attacked by gunmen. Mejia escaped with three gunshot wounds, but the case remains unresolved.Natalia Tena said, ’Dilia’s story of the loss of her husband touched me deeply, which is why I am supporting Survival’s campaign against impunity for crimes against Colombia’s indigenous people.’Survival’s Director Stephen Corry said, ‘Rarely is there a more explicit and stomach-churning example of government-sponsored violence against tribal peoples. And yet there are those that continue to promulgate the lie that tribal peoples fare better when the state is imposed upon them. Arhuaco tribeswoman Dilia Torres would vehemently disagree.’Source:Survival Internationallast_img read more

Progress made in modernizing NAFTA will make it easier to trade says

first_imgMONTREAL – Progress made in negotiations to modernize NAFTA aren’t getting much attention but they will make it easier for companies to conduct trilateral trade, Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland said Wednesday.After speaking to a Montreal business audience, the minister told reporters that the nine modernization chapters concluded in the renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement will cut red tape that has made it a hassle for cross-border trade.“It’s like a grind but our negotiators have been getting through it and when we do conclude a modernized NAFTA, people will really find that that’s a relief and it’s easier to trade, simple as that,” she said.Freeland said modernization of the 24-year-old trade agreement is often ignored by journalists who focus on struggles by the United States, Canada and Mexico to reach an overall deal.Good regulatory practices and sanitary measures may not be worthy of the front pages, she said, but bringing NAFTA up to date with the 21st century will help those who actually trade by, for example, implementing electronic forms at the border.“These areas are for actual people doing business — really the core of the modernization discussion,” she said.Consultations ahead of the start of negotiations nine months ago found that about 40 per cent of Canadians doing business with the U.S. didn’t bother to use their NAFTA preferences that allow products to be traded duty-free.Freeland said the high number showed that people making real-life decisions concluded that the hassle wasn’t worth their time.“A simple way to describe what we’re doing in this modernization work is to get rid of the hassle so that it’s actually worth it for people to claim their NAFTA preference.”Earlier, Freeland criticized the Trump administration’s decision to impose tariffs on steel and aluminum based on national security concerns.She also told a Montreal Council on Foreign Relations luncheon that it is essential to preserve an international rules-based system that has served the world well for decades even though many Americans no longer believe that has benefited the United States.One of the reasons to do so is because of the economic strength of China, which doesn’t share the West’s democratic values.“China in my life will be the world’s largest economy and I think everyone, and especially all the democratic countries, have a big interest in a international order based on rules.”last_img read more

Buffett backs new business kits for kids that compete against young entrepreneurs

AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Buffett backs new business kits for kids that compete against young entrepreneurs he praised OMAHA, Neb. – Earlier this year, Warren Buffett congratulated a group of three Kentucky kids for developing kits to help their peers set up businesses.Now Buffett is helping teach the young entrepreneurs how tough business can be by backing a competing product.Both the new “Business in a Box” kits and the contest the Kentucky kids won in May are tied to “The Secret Millionaire’s Club” cartoon that features advice from an animated version of the billionaire investor.Amy Heyward, one of the co-founders of cartoon maker A Squared Entertainment, said the company started developing the “Business in a Box” kits more than three years ago, so there’s no direct link to the contest-winning idea.But Heyward said she immediately recognized the similarities when siblings Kennedy Sabharwal and Spencer Sabharwal and their cousin Sawyer Beeler presented their Kidtrepreneur Kit idea.“They should come work for us. They were great,” Heyward said. “It’s amazing what comes out of kids’ heads.”Buffett’s assistant said Berkshire Hathaway’s chairman and CEO was travelling Tuesday and wasn’t available to comment.The kids set up their own website prominently featuring pictures of Buffett to sell their entrepreneurial kits with materials to set up a lemonade stand and other businesses.The young entrepreneurs didn’t immediately respond to a question about their new competition Tuesday, but they probably won’t hold a grudge against Buffett or the Secret Millionaire’s Club after winning $5,000 and 10 Class B shares of Berkshire Hathaway Inc. stock in May.The Kidtrepreneur kit makers will have a hard time competing with the professionally developed “Business in a Box” kits even if the homemade Kentucky version is $5 cheaper.The new $19.99 Secret Millionaire’s Club kits come with a booklet of Buffett’s business advice and a DVD with three episodes of the cartoon. The first two kits focus on setting up a lemonade stand and a carwash.Heyward said the business kits seem to be a natural fit with the cartoon that is designed to teach kids about key financial principles such as avoiding debt, supply and demand, and the importance of pursuing your dreams. She said Buffett’s talent for simplifying issues helps the program.“They’re simple enough messages that they resonate with kids,” Heyward said.The kits will be sold exclusively at Toys R Us through the end of the year before being distributed more widely next year.___Online:Kidtrepreneur Kits: www.kidtrepreneurkits.comSecret Millionaire’s Club: www.smckids.comA Squared Entertainment: www.a2entertain.com___Follow Josh Funk online at www.twitter.com/funkwrite by Josh Funk, The Associated Press Posted Oct 15, 2013 12:38 pm MDT read more

As number of seafaring migrants surges UN calls for better global protection

“This is a mistake, and precisely the wrong reaction for an era in which record numbers of people are fleeing wars,” António Guterres, the UN’s High Commissioner for Refugees, said today in a press release. “Security and immigration management are concerns for any country, but policies must be designed in a way that human lives do not end up becoming collateral damage.”According to estimates from coastal authorities and data points collected by the UN, at least 348,000 people have risked seafaring journeys worldwide since the beginning of 2014 as they flee conflicts and poverty. Europe, facing conflicts to its south in Libya, east in Ukraine, and southeast in Syria and Iraq, is currently seeing the largest number of sea arrivals with 207,000 people crossing the Mediterranean to reach its shores – almost three times the previous known high of about 70,000, registered in 2011.However, the UN agency noted, there are at least three other major sea routes in use today both by migrants seeking better economic opportunities and asylum seekers escaping conflict. In the Horn of Africa, some 82,000 people crossed the Gulf of Aden and Red Sea between 1 January and the end of November, leaving Ethiopia and Somalia for countries in the Arabian Peninsula. In Southeast Asia, meanwhile, an estimated 54,000 people have undertaken sea crossings, departing Bangladesh or Myanmar and heading to Thailand, Malaysia, or Indonesia. And, in the Caribbean, 2014 has seen almost 5,000 people take to boats as they escape the clutches of poverty and explore asylum options in the neighbouring countries.In addition to the difficulties of these journeys which often stretch across multiple borders and over thousands of kilometres, many of those migrating along these maritime corridors succumb to trafficking and smuggling networks coordinated by international organized crime. As the flow of migrants continues to swell, the UN said, many governments were finding themselves “unable to either stem the flow or stop people dying along the journey.” “You can’t stop a person who is fleeing for their life by deterrence, without escalating the dangers even more,” Mr. Guterres continued. “The real causes have to be addressed, and this means looking at why people are fleeing, what prevents them from seeking asylum by safer means, and what can be done to crack down on the criminal networks who prosper from this, while at the same time protecting their victims.”“It also means having proper systems to deal with arrivals and distinguish real refugees from those who are note,” he said. Mr. Guterres’ words come as UN officials from its humanitarian and human rights agencies prepare to gather at UNHCR’s 2014 High Commissioner’s Dialogue in Geneva – an informal policy discussion forum whose focus this year is “Protection at Sea.”UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein, who was also in attendance at the UNHCR event, similarly cautioned that as wealthy nations continue to guard themselves from migrant arrivals and asylum seekers, they also risk transforming into xenophobic “gated communities.” “Unilateral attempts to close borders are almost certainly futile, and the response cannot just lie in aggressive, and often counterproductive, anti-smuggling plans,” affirmed Mr. Zeid in a press release. “When migrants are left to drift for weeks without access to food and water; when ships deliberately refuse to rescue migrants in distress; when children in search of family reunification are detained indefinitely, denied education and care, or returned to perilous situations – these are grave human rights violations.”The UN rights chief pointed out that policies that seek to “stamp out migration” do not decrease the numbers of would-be migrants but, instead, “exacerbate the dangers they endure” creating zones of lawlessness and impunity. As a result, he continued, nations were encouraged to establish accessible corridors for legal migration and discourage the current “siege mentality” fanned by a growing number of populist politicians and leaders. “Ultimately, unless they can access safe and regular migration channels, desperate people may continue to brave the perils of the sea in search of protection, opportunity and hope. In their place, we would probably do the same. And perhaps only this recognition of our common humanity can guide us to make the right choices in response,” he concluded. read more

first_img Battle Team Rocket in New ‘Pokemon Go’ Update‘Pokemon Sleep’ Puts Pocket Monsters in Your Dreams Pokémon Go has a ton of pocket monsters for people to catch. Though there are 151 Generation 1 Pokémon (142 of which can be captured in Pokémon Go), there are still many from succeeding generations that haven’t been introduced yet. It was only a matter of time before new critters popped up in the game, and starting now, players can go out and hunt for two familiar ones from Generation 2.Niantic has announced that the baby Pokémon Pichu and Topegi can now be caught in Pokémon Go. These creatures made their debut in Pokémon Gold and Silver. Unlike with the majority of Pokémon, these two can’t be caught out in the wild.

Niantic also said that “select other” Generation 2 Pokémon can be hatched, though which ones wasn’t specified.On top of these Generation 2 additions, Pokémon Go is celebrating Christmas with a special Pikachu. This Pikachu, which is available starting now through December 29, comes with a cute holiday-themed red hat. Niantic says that players should have no problem finding this version of Pikachu as it will be available in mass quantities.Pokémon Go may have hit its peak during the summer, but the game is still very popular and should maintain a sizable user base with the help of frequent updates from Niantic.

Also be on the lookout for more holiday-specific Pokémon and special events to pop up during the appropriate times.As always, stay tuned for more Pokémon Go news as we hear about it.

Monty Python Tune Named Top Song to Play at Funerals

first_imgWhen planning a wedding, one of the most stressful decisions you have to compromise on is what song will be your first dance. Frank Sinatra’s a classic and Celine Dion’s a modern standard. But what about when you’re planning a funeral? Believe it or not, the same beloved crooners that may serenade you the night of your nuptials can also be popular choices for gloomier affairs. For some people facing a deadly deadline, or for some in full health who want to plan for the future, choosing which song or a soundtrack to play at their funeral is an important decision. What’s the best way to have the last word? Sinatra’s “My Way” is an understandably good choice. Short, sweet, and to the point, “My Way” is a jaunty way of reminding mourners of the deceased’s sass and independence.Frank Sinatra, 1957Dion’s “My Heart Will Go On” did the wedding circuit for a while in the booming wake of Titanic’s release. Over time, people began to have a closer listen to the bleak lyrics which clearly reference loss of a love one and its popularity changed scenes. There’s an even more popular choice for funerals these days, though. In England, the Co-operative Funeralcare compiled a list of the most popular burial ballads. Topping the chart incontestably at the number one slot is “Always Look On the Bright Side of Life.”Related Video: The Black Knight from Monty Python & The Holy Grail was based on a Real PersonIt may sound like a sweet, comforting message to send out in a time of grief, but anyone recognizing the title will know it’s a spunky and snarky tune taken from the film The Life of Brian, one of the full-length features of the cult comedy troupe Monty Python.Graham Chapman comemorative Blue Plaque. Photo by Spudgun67 CC BY-SA 4.0Anyone who knows the group will have had a good laugh, but for those who aren’t familiar with the lyrics, they contain bits like:“Forget about your sin, Give the audience a grin, Enjoy it, it’s your last chance anyhow.”To further emphasize the absurdity of the song, it is performed when the main character of the film, Brian, is captured by Roman soldiers who crucify him. Nailed upon a cross, he sings:“Keep ’em laughing as you go, Just remember that the last laugh is on you.”The first use of this upbeat tune was at the memorial service of one of Monty Python’s own founding members, Graham Chapman. The character of Brian was played by none other than Chapman, so the song was sadly jocular. Suffice to say this certainly reflects a new outlook on funeral planning. It is now the time that rebellious souls who grew up in the ‘60s and ‘70s are having to face the woe of mortality. Leave it to the generation that completely shaped modern pop culture to begin to change the way we look at funerals.According to the Telegraph, a spokesperson from Co-op Funeralcare said, “There’s been a general shift towards people trying to find some way of celebrating the life of their loved ones,” noting that Monty Python isn’t the only bizarre choice. Queen is also popular, especially given that they have several appropriately named options (“Another One Bites the Dust,” “Who Wants to Live Forever,” and “Don’t Stop Me Now” to name a few).Queen on stage at the Oakland Arena, Oakland, California, July 1980. Photo by Mark James Miller CC BY-SA 3.0Some make inappropriate choices as well, and funeral homes have been finding themselves having to deny certain requests. Operations Director of Co-op Funeralcare, David Collingwood, said, “We will accommodate any individual request, no matter how unusual, providing it is legal and decent.” Denied artists include the Sex Pistols and Eminem.Read another story from us: The Black Knight from Monty Python & The Holy Grail was Inspired by a True StoryFor traditionalists, there’s no need to worry about flippant decisions that may be regretted by loved ones later. These pop and parody songs balance out pretty evenly with classic dirges like “The Lord is My Shepherd” and “Abide With Me” which come in 2nd and 3rd place, respectively, after Monty Python.last_img read more

"I told myself that whatever minutes I was going to play, "It’s time to challenge every aspect of how government works, had a number of small acting jobs and television appearances. and some started after age 40. . As time went by I didnt want to go out or eat or do anything The only thing I wanted to do was to die I told myself that the same thing could happen to me" After the 90-minute interview the asylum officer told Maria she might know the outcome of her request in two weeks More than three months later after starting 11th grade this fall at an LA public high school she was still waiting for an answer A test for US asylum In coming months the American asylum systems treatment of young people like Maria will be tested as never before on US soil and in Central America as well The challenge to the systems integrity and humanitarian obligations follows an 88 percent increase in "unaccompanied minors" seized at the border this year More than 66000 kids traveling without parents were apprehended by the Border Patrol between October 2013 and the end of August News footage showed minors from Honduras El Salvador and Guatemala simply walking up to agents to be taken in Now a record number are expected to apply for asylum based on gang persecution a basis for refugee status thats becoming more common and is a highly debated area of law The White House on Sept 30 also approved a plan to allow a limited number of minors to apply for refugee statusthe equivalent of asylumfrom inside those three Central American countries if their parents are in US with legal status including potentially parents with temporary legal status The plan echoes in-country refugee screenings in the past inside Haiti and Vietnam But just like Maria who crossed the border illegally in 2013 children in home countries will face eligibility requirements for asylum refugee status that go beyond experiencing fear The asylum application system for minors on US territory has been designed over time to be deliberative and compassionate yet it is by no means a sure thing for kids like Maria In the court of US public opinion some have already reacted with unvarnished hostility to the flood of teens and preteens and their claims to be seeking a haven from relentless violence "Theyre going to be sucking us dry" Cape Cod resident Mary Woodruff said as Bostons WBUR radio taped public debate over a proposal to shelter detained kids at a National Guard base in the popular vacation region Yet the public writ large seems to be conflicted Fifty-two percent of respondents in an Associated Press-GfK opinion poll in late July said children claiming to be fleeing gang violence shouldnt be treated as refugees in need of asylum Yet a survey by the nonpartisan Public Religion Research Institute the same month found 69 percent support for allowing minors to stay if US authorities decided it was unsafe for them to be deported Unaccompanied minors have an indisputable right to request an immigration hearing and seek asylum but immigration skeptics want these kids to be treated more like adults who are subjected to rapid "credible fear" tests that can lead to their "expedited deportation" Refugee rights advocates meanwhile are trying to make sure these kids who have no right to appointed counsel have help from attorneys As federal officials rush to prioritize resolution of minors applications members of Congress are aggressively attacking the current asylum system as well as childrens claims they actually face mortal threats Meanwhile pro bono lawyers are struggling to document horrors some teens have faced while line-level asylum officers face decisions about matters children tell them could mean life or death Truth about terror not enough To win asylum or refugee status even children have to go beyond simply proving that theyre being truthful about terrifying experiences "While age should be taken into account in making the persecution determination" says an asylum officers training guide "not all harm to a child including physical mistreatment and detention constitutes persecution" For her asylum hearing in late June Maria wore a dark jacket and pants because she wanted to convey respect Alexis Kenyon—Center for Public Integrity The Department of Homeland Security declined a request to speak with an active asylum officer But Christopher Manny a former asylum officer in Chicago and Miami explained the constraints of the law "As traumatic as it is seeing your friend or family member executed by a gang for refusing recruitment or refusing an extortion demand" Manny said "generally speaking that would not be considered grounds for a refugee definition" Officers must also be convinced Manny said that childrens suffering had a "nexus" or was rooted in a persecutors intent to harm them because of one or more of five reasons: religious or political persuasion race nationality or because they belong to an identifiable "social group" thats persecuted and unprotected Since minors like adults have no right to the appointment of counsel in deportation or asylum proceedings they largely depend on nonprofit and pro bono attorneys who often need crash courses from colleagues because theyve never studied asylum law State bar associations have put out calls for members to volunteer beginning with initial appearances the kids make before immigration judges Kids are also showing up for help at advocacy groups like Los Angeles Esperanza Immigrant Rights Project Chicagos National Immigrant Justice Center and Washington DCs Capital Area Immigrants Rights Coalition among others Kids in Need of Defense a nonprofit in the nations capital is scrambling to match Central American minors with counsel from a pool of 8000 potential pro bono lawyers nationwide that the group has developed at law firms corporations and law schools In September as part of the budget process Congress rejected a White House request for $64 million to hire more immigration judges to clear backlogs that delay cases for years and to provide other legal support including $15 million in direct representation for kids The Justice Department though is pressing ahead with $18 million in grants to groups to bolster legal representation for kids under 16 The Department of Health and Human Services which runs shelters for the minors announced in late September that its providing $9 million in grants for two years to fund nonprofit legal aid groups that provide counsel Its unclear exactly how many kids will get counsel but it can clearly make a difference A recent analysis of a decades worth of immigration court records showed that 43 percent of about 100000 juveniles in the courts had counsel About half of those kids were ultimately allowed to stay for various reasons asylum among them Only one in 10 without counsel was successful according to researchers at Syracuse University "An attorney is so so central" said Lisa Frydman managing director of the Center for Gender and Refugee Studies at the University of California Hastings College of the Law "How does a child begin to understand what kinds of evidence they have to put together" Frydman said "or begin to understand what the definition of a refugee even means" Comprehending the intricacies of the law is just one challenge; lawyers also face the daunting task of figuring out how to gather statements and relevant evidence from foreign countries where people are often terrified to hand over records Under current federal law laws some in Congress now want changed minors who arrive on their own must be released from Border Patrol custody and placed in shelters within 72 hours They receive basic child-friendly legal briefings And if they are from "non-contiguous" countries like those in Central America they must be given a date to appear before an immigration judge before they can be deported If a child decides to seek asylum immigration judges transfer their cases for judgment to the US Asylum Office system which is part of the Department of Homeland Security If asylum officers dont subsequently find children eligible for asylum their cases return to immigration courts where they can again argue for asylum in a hearing that can be more adversarial with a government attorney cross-examining them Sorting it out As images of minors crossing the border began to dominate news programs and talk shows the issue quickly morphed into a political football laced with confusing accusations and misleading statistics Between October and the end of June more than 1500 asylum requests were filed by unaccompanied minors They added up to only 4 percent of all asylum applications nationally during that time But minors requests did more than double in less than a year By the end of June about 2180 cases including Marias in Anaheim were pending resolution nationwide according to data provided by US Citizenship and Immigration Services During the first nine months of the 2014 fiscal year 65 percent of kids interviewed by asylum officers were granted refuge a rate criticized as excessive in a widely covered press release issued in July by House of Representatives Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte a Virginia Republican who opposes federal expenditures on counsel for unaccompanied minors He declined to comment further Goodlattes July release alleged that too many kids were being rushed to undeserving asylum status on the basis of "proven or possible fraud" citing an internal report from the Department of Homeland Security What the release didnt say was that the overall numbers of kids approved during that time frame was modest: just 108 minors About 60 other cases were sent to immigration judges for what amounts to an appeal Thirty-eight additional cases were closed for reasons that included failure to appear Only two of the 108 minors approved were new arrivals who came in during the nine-month time frame; the rest were kids who had arrived earlier US government reports on brutal gangs In that recent nine-month period some 90 percent of the kids interviewed by asylum officers were represented by counsel On average up to now most minors have taken more than 300 days to file formal application forms Because kids are kids and are frightened lawyers say it can take weeks even months to fully understand what happened to them Asylum officers attempt to resolve cases within a few months of receiving an application Kids lawyers say the process is accelerating now that the Department of Homeland Security the umbrella agency handling border and immigration matters has made minors cases a priority To help frame minors stories lawyers say they routinely submit with applications US government reports acknowledging the pervasive brutal control organized-crime rings now exert in Central America In 2012 the US Treasury Department designated the notorious MS-13 gang which Maria said preyed on her as a "transnational crime organization" involved in global narcotics smuggling and other crimes A US State Department report also warned in 2006 that kids as young as 8 were targets for gang recruitment extortion and retaliation in some countries Honduras El Salvador and Guatemala have some of the highest per capita murder rates in the world A Congressional Research Service paper issued in July took note of a United Nations survey of about 400 Central American minors in US custody in the fall of 2013 About half said they had experienced "serious harm or threats by organized criminal groups or state actors" references to gangs and to corrupt police But these claims are controversial San Diego-area GOP Rep Darrell Issa chair of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform downplayed the role of gang violence in creating the recent surge among children "What youre seeing is a flood of illegals coming here prepped to say whatever they need to say to get to stay here because the President of the United States has told them in no uncertain terms: If they get here he wont enforce the law" Issa said at a June congressional hearing Reports of "cheat sheets" composed by smugglers hired by parents fueled the idea that kids were making stories up Maria said it was her idea in 2013 to flee El Salvador not her fathers and she implored him to help her "The majority of my friends that have stayed in El Salvador are terrified Some tolerate beatings; others threats Others are in the gangs now Waiting to see when its their day to die" Maria said her voice shaking "Its a country where no one can even play safely nor think Nothing" she said "The police are dominated by the gangs You go to complain about a gangster and a little while later they know about it" Lawyers have argued with mixed success that girls who face rape and servitude to notorious criminal bands in Central America constitute a persecuted social group Theyve also argued that kids who resist gang recruitment and face brutal retaliation are a social group along with kids who witness crimes where police are either incapable or too corrupt to protect them from retaliation Lawyers for Maria at the Esperanza Immigrant Rights Project submitted a legal memo arguing that the teenager is a witness to crime who requires protection because she is vulnerable to retaliation Patricia Ortiz Esperanzas managing attorney is confident that the kids whose cases shes taken are truthful Patricia Ortiz near her office win Los Angles CA Wednesday Oct 12014 (Photo by Annie Tritt) Annie Tritt—Center for Public Integrity "Just because all of them are telling similar stories does not mean that they are lying" she said "It just means that theyre living in a country where they are not safe and theyre in a country where they cant walk out into the street without being afraid of being murdered or hurt or facing some kind of harm" Former asylum officer Manny said officers are trained to spot stories that raise suspicions They receive bulletins if details in multiple applicants stories seem oddly similar "What to look for" he said of children "is basically the consistency of their testimony whether they seem like they believe it or whether they seem to be speaking vicariously through someone else" Gang refusal a reason for asylum The outcome of a case may also depend on how higher-level federal courts have ruled on asylum cases In 2012 the US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit based in Richmond Virginia upheld an immigration boards denial of an asylum claim based on arguments that young Honduran males who had refused to join a gang and reported harassment to police were a distinct persecuted group Opposition to gangs and resisting recruitment is too much of an "amorphous characteristic" the court said for determining group membership But in 2013 the Ninth Circuit based in San Francisco reversed an asylum denial for a young girl based on arguments she lacked status within an obviously persecuted social group The case involved a 12-year-old who had testified in open court in El Salvador that she saw gang members assault her father and heard shots that killed him She also said she was threatened for testifying and fled to the United States Her case had previously reached the Board of Immigration Appeals the BIA the highest review body within the immigration system The BIA rejected the argument the girl as a witness to crime met the threshold of "social visibility" needed for a social group argument The Ninth Circuit disagreed finding that witnesses to crimes were a distinct social group even if they were not visible to "the naked eye" In Chicago this summer lawyers for a 15-year-old from Guatemala framed his asylum bid by describing him as a member of two social groups: minors who resist gang recruitment and kids who are witnesses to crime Francisco as he asked to be called came north more than a year ago and was interviewed by an asylum officer in August His voice still sounds like a young boys In detail Francisco recounted what he told an asylum officer Gangsters gave him and a friend messages warning them to join up or die Franciscos friend mocked the gangsters who were also children when he tossed a written message hed been given to the ground His friend was shot in an ambush on the street that sent Francisco running for his life "I saw a bullet hit near me" he said Francisco said he spoke to a police detective at his friends wake and he and his mother tried to shield themselves from reprisal by moving But Francisco said hoods younger than he found them and his father in Chicago fearing his son would be killed arranged to have him smuggled up to the United States The asylum officer asked Francisco details about various parts of his story and showed particular interest in his interactions with the detective and concerns about retaliation the boys lawyers said The social group "rubric" is one of "the most common types of asylum claims nowadays and its also one of the most complex" said Ashley Huebner managing attorney of the National Immigrant Justice Centers Immigrant Childrens Protection Project which represents Francisco Huebner said she cant imagine minors without lawyers trying to sort out what parts of their story are more relevant than others Former asylum officer Manny agreed "An attorneys brief can shed light on a lot of things that may not be expressed clearly by the child" Huebner said she doesnt expect an answer on Franciscos request for months Lawyers quests to find documents Gladis Molina a nonprofit attorney in Phoenix Arizona said she feels an awesome responsibility taking on kids cases But she says shes also had to turn away kids whose stories simply dont meet the threshold for asylum or some other type of relief from deportation A first-generation Salvadoran-American Molina 34 manages the childrens program for the Florence Immigrant and Refugee Rights Program Her father left El Salvador during its bloody civil war in the 1980s and received amnesty in 1986 during the Reagan administration She warns her clients that they must expect "for their story to be turned upside downside inward and outward because you get asked so many details" Some kids stories are so horrible Molina said she weeps as she listens Shes also had agonized clients call her in the middle of night and say "Lawyer I dont feel like living anymore Life is just not worth living Im not happy I feel lonely" Molina recently prepared a complex case on behalf of a Salvadoran girl who was 17 when she filed her application She recently turned 18 In mid-September she underwent an interview with an asylum officer for 2 ½ hours The girl claims she was raped by a gangster in what may have been an initiation rite The girls mother who lived in Fresno California is now deceased The young woman came north to join relatives was detained and is now terrified to return to El Salvador because the alleged rape was reported to child-welfare services The rapist is in jail but like many behind bars in El Salvador the girl says he has the ability to order a hit on her Up until the girls interview Molina was trying to get child-welfare records from El Salvador to bolster her argument that the girl qualifies as a member of a social group women exploited by gangs who would face deadly retaliation if deported "I want those records" Molina said Molina and another attorney called and emailed a child-welfare administrator and were told the girl would need to give someone in El Salvador power of attorney to release the records Molina tried her own family connections as well to see if she could get someone on the ground to get the documents "I remembered that a cousin of mine knew a doctor whose wife worked for the government agency that oversees real estate taxation" Molina said "So I sent her an email and said Im an American attorney You dont know me but my cousin knows your husband Can you please help me get these documents " If her client is rejected by the asylum officer and has to go on to an immigration court hearing Molina said she intends to redouble efforts to get the records Asylum officers will not reject a childs claim solely because adults failed to generate documentation of abuses But officers can ask to see certain documents and lawyers must provide a reason in writing why records could not be obtained If you can obtain them Molina said records can show that a childs terrible story is "in fact what happened and not something that shes just conveniently recounting in America to avoid deportation" "An unbelievable story" In 2009 Damion Robinson was just two years out of the University of California at Los Angeles law school and a young LA business attorney when his firm took on an asylum case pro bono that required extraordinary effort and money to pursue and ultimately win in November 2010 Robinson led the effort and among the key pieces of evidence he chased down was a trove of records related to a Guatemalan girls story of sustained abuse at the hands of a local crime boss Damion Robinson near his office in Los Angeles on Oct 1 2014 Annie Tritt—Center for Public Integrity Robinson got involved when Kids In Need of Defense or KIND approached the firm he worked for at the time Sullivan & Cromwell LLP The firm enthusiastically embraced the case as a pro bono service Robinson said Today at 31 Robinson handles clients that run the gamut from start-up companies to Fortune 500 firms at Van Vleck Turner & Zaller also in LA Hes eager to represent another minor "It was hard to say no frankly" the Seattle native said when he began to gather facts about the Guatemalan for what turned out to be a nearly 18-month case A Spanish-speaking female assistant helped Robinson slowly unravel the history of the girl who was living with a relative in LA after release from a shelter At times Robinson would have to leave the room to let the girl first disclose privately to the woman assistant details of being repeatedly raped held captive giving birth at 14 held captive again and beaten and threatened with weapons "Her story was unbelievable in a way" Robinson said "It was just something I couldnt even imagine happening . There was a long long history of sexual assault and violence physical violence against her that was just horrifying" The girl said she was first kidnapped by an older man when she was 12 years old She said the man ran a gang with impunity in a small city Robinson was amazed to learn that the girls mother had persistently filed criminal and civil complaints and obtained restraining orders that local justice officials did not enforce The girls mother finally sent her daughter out of Guatemala with a smuggler to remove her from the clutches of the man A tale that initially felt like it might be exaggerated became vividly real after Robinson and others labored four months to track down copies of the civil and criminal complaints and restraining orders "In the US, She has also received cards in the mail that describe what type of car she drives, and not at the time they were transmitted. preferring instead to wing it.
