Hundreds of immigrant youth have lost their ability to work, go to school, and operate their lives normally due to the administration’s arbitrary decision to rescind DACA. Congress has failed to protect our youth, who face an imminent threat as the President’s March 5th deadline looms to end their legal protections. More than 80 percent of Americans are in favor of a permanent solution for DREAMers, and the White House is using their popularity to request an astounding 21.5 billion dollars in the government spending bill to fund an unnecessary border wall, more immigration enforcement agents, more jail beds and prisons to detain immigrant families and DREAMers.The nation has urgent needs in healthcare, education and so many other areas; yet the Trump administration remains focused on wasting billions of taxpayer dollars to target immigrants instead of focusing on the country’s needs. The Florida Coalition on Immigration demand a legislative solution for DREAMers that doesn’t include increasing funding for immigration enforcement, border militarization, and the incessant profiling and harassment of our immigrant communities. Any legislative solution must not harm undocumented immigrants or increase family separations.The following is a statement from Ana Guevara, an DACA recipient and volunteer coordinator with the Florida Student Power Network:“As DACA Recipient, I am urging lawmakers to pass a legislation that will protect the undocumented youth WITHOUT putting our families and communities at risk. We will not support a bill that will criminalize our communities and put them at risk of deportation. We cannot wait any longer and continue to live our lives with uncertainty and fear. The time is now to pass a Clean Dream Act.”To occupy Congressional officesOn March 5th, Trump’s self-imposed deadline for providing a permanent solution for DREAMers, immigrant youth and allies from Florida will once again visit the nation’s capital, occupying Congressional offices and other spaces to demand that lawmakers act to protect them as an ever increasing number lose their work permits and protection from deportation, with an average of 122 per day losing their DACA status. They will join thousands of others from across the country in urging Congress to find a permanent solution for our DREAMers that doesn’t separate immigrant families.

Altenar: Supporting expansion plans in Denmark and Portugal August 20, 2020 Sweden: Soft2Bet CEO Chaikin on prospering in igaming’s brave new world August 18, 2020 Submit Share Alberto Alfieri: Leading the way for Gamingtec’s B2C growth August 25, 2020 Related Articles Share StumbleUpon The Danish government has revealed plans to raise the level of tax paid by igaming operators in Denmark, which is due to come into effect in 2021.Operators will now pay tax equal to 28% of gross gaming revenue, up from the previous 20%, which is expected to generate DKK150m (£17.1m) in tax revenues.Denmark’s Social Democratic Party-led minority government has received the support from a number of other left wing parties such as the Red-Green Alliance, Socialist People’s Party and Social Liberal Party to pass the budget.It is hoped that by raising the tax, additional funding can be supplied towards problem gambling support initiatives, as well as increased efforts to better regulate the market which opened up in 2012.The government emphasised that the level of online tax still remained lower than that imposed on land-based casinos and gaming machines. Casinos pay a 45% GGR tax, and a further 30% on revenue above DKK4m, while gaming machines pay 41% of GGR as well as 30% on revenue over DKK4,000 for restaurant-based machines, and the same levy on revenue over DKK250,000 in gaming machine halls.Earlier this year, gaming operators in Denmark voluntarily agreed to a new code of conduct which seeks to establish a definitive benchmark on gambling industry practices, with regards to advertising, reducing problem gambling harms, combined with comprehensive consumer protections.The enforcement of the code by online gambling operators will be monitored by the Danish Online Gambling Association (DOGA). Whilst licence holders in the area of gaming machines will be monitored by the Dansk Automat Brancheforening (Danish gaming machine industry association) and land-based casino by the Dansk Kasinoforening (Danish Casino Association).
