Chapter 46. United States Embassy 
 A Historical Novel by Dr. Ed Gamboa
ABS CBN News | CHOC-TAW, Oklahoma, 6/7/2013 -Amid the tornado-ravaged ar-eas of Oklahoma, the Filipinocommunity still has plenty of reasons to celebrate.After a deadly tornadodelayed graduation ceremo-nies, Filipino students wenton with their graduations andafter-parties, celebrating twoFilipino-Americans fromChoctaw High School whotied for valedictorian.Scott Nusz and Kylie Mor-gan both graduated as valedic-torian.“It feels great I feel likeI’ve worked really hard,”Morgan said.“It was really tough to getall A’s but I’m happy we gotthrough it together,” NuszBy DJ Yap, PhilippineDaily Inquirer | 5/30/2013 --Charls Bryan Katipunan was,like any other star student inhigh school, quiet, diligent,smart.Classmates enjoyed hiscompany in study groups;teachers had nothing to com- plain about his grades.But unknown to most of them, every day in schoolhad been a struggle for the16-year-old son of a taxidriver.In March, Katipunan grad-uated valedictorian of BatasanHills National High Schoolin a working-class section of Quezon City.Addressing 3,000 gradu-ates, he told a familiar tale of a bright student straining tomeet the demands of schoolagainst the constraints of  poverty.Siegfrid O.

everal months after their meeting with Jaime Cardinal Sin, George, Rona, and little
Christina got up before dawn, packed a little breakfast, then passed by the sacristy.Father Alfonso was usually there very early to meditate and pray for an hour or so before celebrating six o’clock morning Mass. Upon seeing them, the saintly priestclosed his breviary softly, got up from the prie-dieux, then hugged and wished them
well. He was going to pray for them as they headed for the United States Embassy.
The embassy in Manila was always crowded. People lined up from sunrise to sunset
along Roxas Boulevard, hoping to secure a coveted visa to travel to the United States of 
America, the land of milk and honey to most third world citizens. Despite criticism lev-
eled against America in the international community, the ow of people seeking a better 
life was still towards the United States, not away from it.
George, Rona, and Christina joined the queue of applicants, unsure when their num-
 ber would be called, uncertain whatthe future held. George kept kneading his rosary beads and silently recited one of his favorite prayers:

Philstar.com MANILA,Philippines, 5/29/2013 - The
alternative shing grounds
which Malacañang wouldsoon identify for Filipino
shermen affected by the
current tensions in the WestPhilippine Sea do not exist,
sherfolk group Pamalakaya
said on Wednesday.Salvador France, Pa-malakaya vice chairperson,said the government is even
 planning to impose sh banin 10 of the 13 major shing
grounds in the country."The country with 7,101 is-lands and separated by bodies
of water is the entire shingarea of 1.3 million shermen.So what alternative shing
grounds Malacañang are re-ferring to?" France said.He said that Malacañangthrough the Bureau of Fisher-
ies and Aquatic Resources
had been planning to impose a
nationwide sh ban.
France said 10 of the 13
shing grounds namely Lin-
gayen Gulf, northern Zam- bales, Visayan Sea, CamotesSea, Honda Bay, BabuyanChannel, Lagonoy Gulf,Sorsogon Bay, Hinatuan andDinagat Bay and Davao Gulf were mapped out to imple-
ment sh ban to pave way for 
the government's stock assess-ment program.On Tuesday, Deputyspokesperson Abigail Valtetold Palace reporters that theAquino administration willsoon identify "alternative
shing grounds" for Filipinoshermen so as not to exac-
erbate tensions in the WestPhilippine Sea.At the same time, thegovernment will also beef upits maritime assets to establish"a minimum credible defense"in the hotly contested WestPhilippine Sea.Valte said the Aquinogovernment will continue toemploy its “nonengagement policy” on the issue of thedisputed waters of the WestPhilippine Sea, regarding
 presence of a eet of Chineseshing boats, accompanied
 by patrol vessels, at AyunginShoal.

We hear stories about agents of the US
Immigration and Customs Enforcement(ICE) conducting dawn raids on private
residences and business establishmentslooking for criminal aliens and visaviolators. Many individuals who happento be in that area and are not even thetarget of these raids have been includedin these immigration sweeps. Thesesweeps have resulted in the arrest anddetention of non-citizens of the UnitedStates.Pertinent US laws provide that on awarrant issued by the Attorney General
through ICE, a non-citizen may be taken
into custody and detained pending adecision on whether the non-citizen is to be removed from the United States.
Detention of non-citizens by ICE has
 become the country’s fastest growingform of incarceration of individu-als. Once the non-citizen is taken into
custody and detained, ICE will begin
 processing the non-citizen for removal.
ICE shall issue a Notice to Appear which
is a document informing the non-citizenof the immigration charges againsthim and that he needs to appear beforean immigration judge for a removalhearing. The person detained may be
released from ICE custody after posting
the requisite bond. However, not all persons detained can be released from
ICE custody. Some individuals will
 be subject to mandatory detention andtherefore cannot be released on bond or 
recognizance. The local district ofce
where the individual is detained makesthe initial custody and bond determina-
tion. If the local ofce does not make
a bond determination and the persondetained is not released, the non-citizenmay request for a bond determination before the Immigration Court to obtainhis release. The non-citizen may alsorequest for a bond re-determination before the Immigration Court to ease theconditions of the release or to lower the
 bond set by the local ofce.
There are two ways for friends andfamily members of the person detainedto post bond. They may either pay thefull amount in the form of a moneyorder or cashier’s check directly to theDepartment of Homeland Security or go through an authorized bond or suretycompany. These companies usuallyrequire a fee of 10% of the bond amountwhich is non refundable and a home with
sufcient equity.
As an alternative to detention or therelease of an individual on bond, the
non-citizen may be subjected to ICE’s
Intensive Supervision Appearance Pro-
gram or ISAP. Under this program, ICE
monitors participating individuals usingthe following methods: telephone report-ing, radio frequency, global positioning
system (GPS), and unannounced home
visits.
Requesting for bond determination is
only but the beginning of the individu-al’s removal process. It is important thatthe individual in proceedings know hisrights and the reliefs that may be avail-
able to him in order to ght his removal.

We came to America to have much better lives and not the opposite. Mostof us managed to live convenientlywith what we have and some createdvery stressful lives and on the verge of 
nancial ruins. It’s no use blaming oth-
ers or unforeseen events for your miserywhen you are the source of your major  problems. Nobody forced you to makethose very bad decisions in the past.You have to stop living in the fan-tasy world hoping to win big in a lottery
to x all your money problems. It’s not
going to happen, so don’t be a fool. Get back to reality and do a self-assessment.Seek help and advice from profession-als. It may not be as bad as you believed
it to be. You may not nd an instant
solution but, somehow you can start toreclaim a less stressful life.Think about our bodies that becamedeformed as we got older. We couldhave done better in the past to maintainits good shape and healthy conditions.Instead, we ate whatever we wanted andate more than what our bodies needed.
We became lazy to ex our muscles and
to do regular exercises. We became toodependent on our cars and other latestgadgets. Now, we are spending our sav-
ings just to x it and function normally.
Maybe some of us had better livesin the Philippines than here in the USA,so why stay here and be miserable. TheUSA is not for everybody specially theolder folks who could not drive them-selves around. Yes, you may live longer and feel better but, are you happy?There is a price for everything so makea decision.Maybe it was not intentional whenyou made those terrible mistakes. Thetemptations were so great to spendmoney you did not have. You wanted toown things you could barely afford. Youtraveled the world on credit. Now, thecards are maxed out and you still have big loan balances for the cars and thehouse. When you are over 60 years old,then you may run out of time to recoup.You can delay your retirement but, canyour body take it?We became a generation of instant
gratications. We could hardly wait for 
later and we want to have it or to do itnow! If you could easily afford it, thenwhy not? If you are barely scraping it,then try to postpone that travel to your hometown or your dream cruise. Saveyour vacation days and money for a debtfree and a more relaxing trip.It is a simple math really, If youspend more than what you make, troubleis coming in your future. Have enoughtax withholding every payday and youwon’t owe more taxes. If you stopped paying mortgage to get your loan modi-
ed, you will have less tax deductions.
Being self-employed and you have less
or no prot from the business for manyyears, then less SS benet to collect.
Don’t contribute to any retirement fundand you’ll retire in a poor house. Blessyour big heart for sending most of your income to the needy relatives but, keep praying that someone will take goodcare of you when you’re old and can’twork no more. No matter how small, set asidesomething regularly for your goldenyears. Time goes by so fast that beforeyou know it, you will be old like me.
Buried in Debt
added.
They have been classmates andfriends since kindergarten. For the past 13 years, they’ve always beenat the top of their class, receivingstraight A’s.“It’s been fun knowing thatwe’ve had someone right there,”Morgan said.
“I’ve had you, you’ve had me basi-cally our whole life.It’s just nice having someone to fall back on,” Nusz said.
 Next year will be the rst time
Morgan and Nusz will not be attendingschool together. Morgan is heading toSouthwest Oklahoma State Universityon a full scholarship, while Nusz will goto community college.However, both of them are aiming for 
the same eld - medicine.
“I’m just going to go to a local com-munity college for two years, and after that I’m going to go to a bigger univer-sity and aim for pharmacy or medicine,” Nusz said.Fil-Ams proved to be among the brightest in this area.This year’s class of 2013 at Choctaw
High had ve Filipinos in the top ten.
The students believe the close tiesamong Filipinos in the quiet communityhelped the students stay focused on their studies.“She’s a really big inspiration, and Ithink I need to beat her so I’m going for valedictorian too, hopefully of distinc-tion, so I’m coming for you, Kylie,”Morgan’s brother Trenton said.But the students aren’t only excellingin the classroom. Since the tornadoesravaged nearby Moore and Shawnee,many of them have been volunteering inrelief efforts.
Asian residential investors tothe Philippines,” he added.
While the Philippine Constitu-tion prohibits foreign ownership of land, there is no restriction for for-eigners to buy condominium units.Thus, foreign fund managers andretail investors buy luxury units bytop developers here for investment purposes.
“Foreigners have opted to investin branded condominium projects,”said Santos. “And so far, they’re veryhappy.”
Early this year, Hong Kong and Singa-
 pore raised taxes for luxury homeown-ers and investment properties as partof their campaign against bubble risksstemming from speculative investmentsin the realty sector.
Investor-friendly tax laws
With tightening restrictions there,foreigners are turning to the Philippines – where tax laws are more investor-
friendly and nancing is relatively cheap
 – for secondary properties.“Number one, it’s much cheaper herefrom a tax perspective and cost. From a
nancing point of view, it’s much moreexpensive to get nancing there,” Santos
said.He noted that the Philippines’ real-
estate developers continue to benet
from foreign interest in branded devel-opments.Santos, however, was quick to addthat he still doesn’t see a bubble arising
from such investment ows. “This isn’t
a bubble. This is sustainable,” he said.“It is exciting. You will see a lot more
money from mainland China, Russia,Europe, Korea and US owing here,”
Santos said.
OFWs and housing backlog
Overseas Filipino workers (OFWs)
and middle-income earners supportdemand for residential products, par-ticularly single-detached homes, in thefringe areas of Metro Manila“OFWs and middle-income earnersto sustain the demand for horizontalresidential projects,” said Jan Custodio,
CBRE Philippines’ senior director for 
global research and consultancy.
“Economic housing will continue to
observe strong take-up with its affordable prices and ample supply in the fringes of thecountry’s major cities,” he added.Total housing needs for 2013 can reach646,128 units, of which 57 percent will comefrom new households who can afford to own
or rent, CBRE data showed. — KBK, GMA
