York-based Center for Migration StudiesRocio Saenz executive vice president of the Service Employees International Union which claims thousands of members living here under TPS called the decision "heartbreaking and harmful in every way""Besides the human toll on Haitian TPS recipients and their families it will be costly for their employers ruinous to the up and coming neighborhoods where they often live and destablilizing to their countries of origin" Saenz saidTPS holders who include a relatively small number of Africans in addition to Central Americans and Haitians "have more than 270000

relatively explicit that if the conditions on the ground do not support a TPS designation then the secretary must terminate"Duke had "assessed overall that extraordinary temporary conditions" that

Information: Karen DeYoung is associate editor and senior national security correspondent for the Washington PostNigeria’s President Goodluck Jonathan on Friday re-stated the commitment of his

stated that the project was an eloquent testimony on the determination of the Federal Government to provide low cost housing for all Nigerians According to Jonathan “Today’s commissioning ceremony is another beautiful and verifiable pointer to the success of housing delivery and verifiable urban development strategies of our administration” He further stated that the past four years had witnessed our painstaking and remarkable achievements in many sectors stressing that “we are beginning to notice significant improvement in housing and urban development arising from the implementation of the many people-oriented projects “We shall not relent in our efforts to provide affordable housing for our people Housing is very important to social and economic development of any society” He expressed delight at the commissioning of the estate which was financed by FMBN using resources of the National Housing Fund (NHF) scheme and developed by NBP Projects Limited According to him “it is remarkable that to enable the scheme cater for affordability issues of individuals the estate offers 1 bedroom 2 bedroom 3 bedroom units among others at affordable prices to low and medium income earners “While commending the developers for prudent use of the resources I wish to say that this commissioning signifies the usefulness of synergy and corporation between government and private sector It underscores the effectiveness of the NHF as a veritable source of long term funding and justifies the need to strengthen the scheme through the recapitalisation of FMBN “Also the Nigerian Mortgage Refinancing Company (NMRC) which was launched last year will bridge the cost of residential mortgages stimulate availability of good houses to Nigerians and reducing affordability and gaps to finance” President Jonathan commended the developer COPEN Group for delivering on quality and time Earlier Governor Sullivan Chime of Enugu State said apart from keying into the Federal Housing Scheme his government was partnering with the private sector to provide quality and affordable houses for its workers While assuring of his readiness to continue partnering with the Federal Ministry of Land Housing and Urban Development in that regards he disclosed that “I have directed the relevant agencies of government to expedite action on the ministry’s request for land to provide a similar estate “Here in Enugu State we have fully developed 6 estates and all of them are occupied We found time to commission the Maryland Estate which contains 384 Units fully developed” The Governor however observed that since it could not meet the housing needs of the people alone it had continued to partner with reputable estate developers noting that “Elim Estate is a clear example of such partnership” He equally described the developer Rev Surveyor Ugochukwu Chime as a rare achiever and called on other contractors and developers to emulate the rare standard he had set The Chairman Senate Committee on Housing Dr Buka Aba Ibrahim in a goodwill message at the event disclosed that the National Social Housing Bill would be passed next week “so that the federal government can

he didn’t indulge Maguire’s risible demand for a VAR review, easy to loot, they often didn’t have the resources to pay a deposit and first month of rent at a new residence where they felt safer."The people of limited means who we help find it very difficult to escape a housing situation and get to safety" said Drew Schaffer who runs the housing unit at Mid-Minnesota Legal Aid in MinneapolisSchaffer said he could count on one hand the number of his clients who faced domestic abuse that had been able to legally break their lease "It puts a person in the position to have to make a choice between honoring a lease and breaking a lease to be safe"Under the new laws domestic abuse victims without a court order will be able to use a police report or other form filed by a domestic abuse or sexual assault counselor or a medical professional as proof they need to leave They’ll send their landlord a letter often prepared by a counselor or advocate outlining their situation and citing their legal right to break the lease when their safety is threatenedThe old process also held hidden costs such as court fees and childcare said Erica Staab executive director of the Rice County Hope Center which counsels victims of domestic violence"Often they’re not making thousands of dollars every month so they’re really looking at budget things" Staab said "Do I have transportation Do I have a safe place for my children" Staab recalled a Northfield woman who’d moved to escape an abusive partner but who’d found her new residence vandalized the property and threatened her life"At that point the landlord wanted to kick her out and she felt it was an unsafe situation and she wanted to get out of the lease" Staab saidHaving a safe place to go often dictates whether a victim will remain with an abuser or not Staab added Many victims of domestic violence find themselves in a precarious financial situation when trying to leave abusers who often control the couple’s financesHOUSING ADVOCATES AND LANDLORDS UNITEIt’s not often that Legal Aid housing advocates and landlords associations find themselves on the same side of an issue at the Legislature But Legal Services Advocacy Project supervising attorney Ron Elwood enlisted the help of the Minnesota Multi-Family Housing Association which represents landlords and property managers across the state Elwood focused on the cost of breaking leasesTodd Liljenquist director of government relations for the MHA said his organization immediately recognized the issue needed to be addressed"Not only is it the right thing to do in protecting individuals and making sure that they’re in situations where they can’t be victimized but from a pure economic standpoint it’s not to the benefit of a property company to have someone victimized at their property" Liljenquist saidManagement companies that refuse to let victims out of a lease could lose more than the income they’d earn from the unit said Lisa Moe chief executive of StuartCo a property management firm with about 6000 units in the Minneapolis area"If we held that lease intact we could end up with more damage to the unit we could end exposed with more damage to other people in that building" Moe said "And just from a reputation standpoint you don’t want an unsafe environment for anybody let alone the victim or any neighbors"That final bill eased advocates’ concern about victims needing to pay an extra month’s rent to leave legally Moe and other property managers say they’re satisfied the new law’s not so broad that tenants will be able to take advantage of it to get out of leases without causeExpanding coverage to sexual assault and stalking victimsThe laws also expand coverage to victims of criminal sexual assault and stalking who weren’t covered by the old law"They’re in a situation that they didn’t ask to be in already" said Caroline Palmer law and policy manager at the Minnesota Coalition Against Sexual Assault "You want to be able to make changes in the law that will help them move forward and I think this makes a huge difference"Last year about 2000 sexual assaults were reported to police in the state according to the Minnesota Department of Health although advocates say many more go unreportedHope Center legal advocate Deb Lustig remembers a case in Steele County about a dozen years ago where a woman was sexually assaulted by a group of men in a car They mentioned her little nephew by name"After they gang raped her they dropped her off at her house" Lustig said "She had no idea who these people were how they knew her how they knew where she lived"Although she reported the assault to police the suspects were never found Lustig said The woman was unable to move for about three months during which time she kept her curtains drawn and slept in her closet for fear that the assailants would return"It just would have been so much better for her if she had been able to get out of that house" Lustig saidThe new laws prevent landlords from holding victims responsible for damage caused by stalking or domestic or sexual assault It also allows assault and stalking victims to get an abuser stripped off a lease or title in the case that a victim is unable or is unwilling to find other accommodationsAlthough some advocates say the forfeiture of the security deposit still represents a burden for the very poor they’re happy with the changes and expect that they’ll be much more accessible to those in need"The question I hear so often is ‘Why doesn’t she just leave’" said Staab "These laws will make it easier for the woman to say ‘I can leave’" The body had yet to be recovered from the lagoon as of 12pm yesterday.S.236.
