If you’re trans, the most that can happen is that your doctor allows you two yearly donations, roughly six months apart, if you are having your period; otherwise you’re allowed three yearly donations, roughly four months apart. That’s it.If the forms are like those provided in Italy, you won’t have even have to lie. If you live in some dumbass country that thinks you cannot donate if you’re queer, though, yeah, just fucking lie about it because there is no valid reason that says you cannot give blood.It’s an whole different matter if we’re talking about restrictions based on where you were at X date.These questions are common worldwide because they refer to viruses and infections that cannot be screened. This is not made because the Red Cross is mean and cruel and whatever the fuck; it’s because they cannot be sure your blood is not contaminated and since the blood is going to someone who, it stands to reason, is already compromised on their own, they cannot fight their own battle and add more.

green card: We don't have kids, so my wife and I took our dog around to look at lights in the neighborhood. He was in awe I met a former hotel executive last year. Nice British gentleman, polished, funny, quietly brilliant (obviously - running an internationally recognized hotel chain is no walk in the park). He came to America (Los Angeles). He was directed to the immigration office. He presented an English passport. He was told to come back the next day. He did. The immigration office tendered him a green card. That was it. So began the story of a man who came to America on a whim and built a company that continues to employ tens of thousands of Americans at all levels of income and has handed Uncle Sam millions (if not billions) of tax dollars. This is nothing if not the American Dream. Last week, a 7-year-old Guatemalan girl died, hours after she was taken into Border Patrol custody. Out of respect, the media will not report her name, so I will honor her by calling her Maria. Maria died of septic shock and dehydration. Before Maria’s death, her body temperature was measured at 105.7 degrees. The treatment to which my hotelier pal was afforded by this country in the 1950s was a bit different from the treatment Maria and many others showing up at our border experience. We are a great country. We have great people working for our federal government. We have been great in the past and we will be great in the future but God is sending us a message. Like children who die in classrooms of gun violence, children like Maria who die painful deaths trying to get to the promised land of America are examples upon which we must reflect. And we must change. We can do better. We simply have to. Bless up.

green card: Justino Mora @JustinoMora1 Hector Barajas, a U.S. veteran, was deported in 2004. Today, our dear friend Hector won his battle against the U.S. government and will be allowed to return home, become a U.S. citizen, and reunite with his family! Hector will be sworn in as a citizen on April 13th in San Diego. Yass!! 💜🙌🏽😊 Via The San Diego Union-Tribune: "Hector Barajas, who became the face and voice of deported veterans after his own deportation, will be allowed to return to the place he considers home and become a U.S. citizen. Barajas burst into joyous tears seated on a couch Thursday afternoon in front of a large American flag as he read a document informing him that he would be sworn in as a citizen on April 13 in San Diego. “Fourteen years, man,” Hector said, his voice cracking. “Oh my God, this is great. Hallelujah! Hallelujah!”. “I’m coming home, mom!” he added. Barajas was honorably discharged from the Army in 2001 but struggled readjusting to civilian life. He took a plea deal for a charge of shooting at an occupied car in 2002. Because of that conviction, the government took away his green card, and he was deported in 2004 after he finished a prison sentence. “I made bad decisions,” Barajas-Varela told the Union-Tribune last year about that time in his life. “I put myself in that situation... I wouldn’t put myself in that situation again.” Barajas founded the Deported Veterans Support House, known to many as “the Bunker,” in 2013 to support deportees in Tijuana. He became a leader in a push for legislative changes to help U.S. military veterans who had not become citizens avoid deportation and to bring back those who were already removed. He was born in Mexico but raised in Los Angeles from age seven. Since he had a green card, he was able to serve in the Army and was part of the 82nd Airborne Division from 1995 to 2001. At the time, he thought he’d automatically become a citizen, but that was not the case. Members of the military are allowed to apply for citizenship with no waiting period. They still have to fill out the paperwork and pass the tests. Noncitizens who serve in the military are still at risk for deportation if they commit crimes that can cause the U.S. to revoke their green cards."

<blockquote><p><b>KNOW YOUR RIGHTS </b></p><p>Everyone living in the U.S. has certain basic rights under the U.S. Constitution, no matter who is president. Undocumented immigrants have these rights, too. It is important that we all assert and protect our basic rights.

If you find you have to deal with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) or other law enforcement officers at home, on the street, or anywhere else, remember that you have the rights described in this factsheet. The factsheet also provides suggestions for what you should do to assert your rights. </p><p><b>You have the right to remain silent.</b> <b>You may refuse to speak to immigration officers. </b></p><ul><li>Don’t answer any questions. You may also say that you want to remain silent. </li><li>Don’t say anything about where you were born or how you entered the U.S. </li></ul><p><b>Carry a know-your-rights card and show it if an immigration officer stops you.</b> </p><ul><li>The card (scroll up to see the card) explains that you will remain silent and that you wish to speak with an attorney. </li></ul><p> <b>Do not open your door.</b> </p><ul><li> To be allowed to enter your home, ICE must have a warrant signed by a judge. Do not open your door unless an ICE agent shows you a warrant. (They almost never have one.) If an ICE agent wants to show you a warrant, they can hold it against a window or slide it under the door. To be valid, the warrant must have your correct name and address on it. </li><li>You do not need to open the door to talk with an ICE agent. Once you open the door, it is much harder to refuse to answer questions. </li></ul><p><b>You have the right to speak to a lawyer. </b></p><ul><li>You can simply say, “I need to speak to my attorney.” </li><li>You may have your lawyer with you if ICE or other law enforcement questions you. </li></ul><p><b>Before you sign anything, talk to a lawyer. </b></p><ul><li>ICE may try to get you to sign away your right to see a lawyer or a judge. Be sure you understand what a document actually says before you sign it. </li></ul><p><b>Always carry with you any valid immigration document you have.</b> </p><ul><li> For example, if you have a valid work permit or green card, be sure to have it with you in case you need to show it for identification purposes.</li><li>Do not carry papers from another country with you, such as a foreign passport. Such papers could be used against you in the deportation process. </li></ul><p><b>If you are worried ICE will arrest you, let the officer know if you have children. </b></p><ul><li>If you are the parent or primary caregiver of a U.S. citizen or permanent resident who is under age 18, ICE may “exercise discretion” and let you go. <br/></li></ul><p><b>Because Donald Trump has made many anti-immigrant statements, ICE and other law enforcement officers may think they can get away with violating your rights. </b>Sometimes ICE officers lie to people in order to get them to open their doors or sign away their rights. If ICE detains you or you are concerned that they will conduct raids in your area, this is what you can do:</p><p><b>Create a safety plan.</b> </p><ul><li> Memorize the phone number of a friend, family member, or attorney that you can call if you are arrested. </li><li>If you take care of children or other people, make a plan to have them taken care of if you are detained. </li><li>Keep important documents such as birth certificates and immigration documents in a safe place where a friend or family member can access them if necessary. </li><li>Make sure your loved ones know how to find you if you are detained by ICE. They can use ICE’s online <b><a href="https://locator.ice.gov/odls/homePage.do">detainee locator</a></b> to find an adult who is in immigration custody. Or they can <b><a href="https://www.ice.gov/contact/ero">call the local ICE office</a></b>. Make sure they have your alien registration number written down, if you have one. </li><li>You can call the Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR) hotline number at 240-314-1500 or 1-800-898-7180 (toll-free) 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to get information on your case’s status. </li></ul><p> // from the <b><a href="https://www.nilc.org/issues/immigration-enforcement/everyone-has-certain-basic-rights/">National Immigration Law Center </a></b>// please help spread this necessary information by reblogging!</p></blockquote>
