Amherst College Stands in Solidarity after "Muslim Ban" Executive Order

Student Demands: "1 February 2017 Since the January 27, 2017 Executive Order banned citizens of seven Muslim majority countries from entering the Us, several members of Amherst College community have lived in fear and uncertainty. This discriminatory order unduly restricts the freedom of movement of these student’s,, staff and faculty; seriously damages their future educational and employment opportunities; and puts their basic well-being in jeopardy. Given this alarming threat to members of our community, the official statements released by President Martin did not meet the needs of those who are directly and indirectly impacted. President Martin's campus-wide email neglected to swiftly condemn the order as antithetical to the College’s values. Furthermore, the failure to guarantee concrete material and legal assistance also betrays the College's apathy towards the emotional and physical welfare of the affected members of our community. Amidst the chaos provoked by the order, the International students Office did not reach out to the distressed students. Once again, the international Students Office failed to live up to its stated purpose of "providing international students with immigration and visit advising, programming and support. The Office's repeated inability to meet the pressing needs of the college’s international students stands in direct contradiction with the college's stated mission to educate men and women of exceptional potential from all backgrounds." We have five demands: Within the next 24 hours, the college must publicly condemn the executive order, "Protecting the Nation from Foreign Terrorist Entry into the United States." Peer institutions including Boston University, Yale, Cornell, Harvard and Princeton have already issued clear condemnation of the order, to which President Martin's statement pales in comparison. Within on week, the College must provide concrete legal and material support to those affected, regardless of their specific legal status. This includes: Providing one-on-one legal consultation and representation for students, staff and faculty members who are directly or indirectly impacted by the executive order or whose citizenship status puts them at risk. Committing to provide legal aid for students, staff and faculty members who are, now or in the future, detained or prevented from reentering the US while traveling, included but not limited to emergency contact information for legal counsel. Committing to meet the housing, living and academic needs of students, staff and faculty members who are, now or in the future, unable to leave the United Sates as a result of the executive order 3. Within one month, the college must recognize the shortcomings of the International Student Office meeting its intended purpose. This include: investigating the office’s repeated failure to reach out to international students, especially in times of considerable and relevant policy changes. Hiring additional staff specifically trained and competent in legal matters pertaining to foreign nationals (The College must at least initiate the search within a month) Ensuring that the International Students Office be proactive and responsive to student input. 4. Given the likelihood of increasing uncertainty in the near future, under the current administration, the college must meet its own promise to its students by responding more quickly and proactively to changing policies. 5.The threats posed to members of the Amherst College community are part of a political paradigm shift that is national in scope, and peer colleges and universities have already condemned the action of the current administration and committed themselves to meeting the needs of their community members. Recognize this, the college must join in efforts to build a coalition of institutions that will collectively stand with those members of their communities impacted by these increasingly violent and racist policies. Until the College commits to meeting these demands, students will not cease their sit in at the Office of the President in Converse Hall. “ Music on Soundcloud: https://soundcloud.com/maxzwell

1-25-17 Freedom and Justice for All? Civil Rights in the Age of Trump There are many questions and concerns surrounding the future of civil rights under the Trump administration. What are the prospects of a Muslim registry? What will be the future of marriage equality? Will refugees and immigrants have their status rescinded? Can Roe v. Wade be overturned? Will stop-and-frisk be enacted nationwide? Will there be a shift in the system of checks and balances? What protections does our constitution afford and what recourse is available to targeted communities? For an in-depth analysis of these issues and more, please join us for an interactive session with Professor Sudha Setty of Western New England University School of Law. SPEAKER BIO: Sudha Setty is the Associate Dean for Faculty Development & Intellectual Life and a Professor of Law at Western New England University School of Law, in Springfield, MA. She teaches Law and Terrorism, Comparative Constitutional Law, Constitutional Law, Civil Rights, Business Organizations and Contracts. Her scholarly work focuses on comparative analysis of separation of powers, rule of law and national security issues. Professor Setty’s recently completed book, National Security Secrecy: Comparative Effects on Democracy and the Rule of Law, will be published by Cambridge University Press early in 2017. Prior to joining the faculty of Western New England, Professor Setty was a litigator with the New York firm of Davis Polk & Wardwell, where she focused on antitrust and securities regulation matters. She served as defense counsel in civil, regulatory and criminal matters involving national security issues, including terrorism financing investigations and lawsuits, and a pro bono matter challenging sentencing guidelines for those convicted of terrorist acts. Professor Setty graduated as a Harlan Fiske Stone Scholar from Columbia Law School and received her A.B. in History (concentration in comparative civil rights) with honors from Stanford University.

As soon as a petition is filed, all creditors are prohibited from attempting to collect on all debts listed in the petition until the Court either discharges you from these debts or determines that you are not entitled to such relief. Amherst MA Bankruptcy Lawyers can help you all the way. First, any qualified bankruptcy attorney will probably require you to fill out a questionnaire for them to review to determine whether or not bankruptcy is right for you. If it is determined to be your best option, the attorney will have to decide under which Chapter you will file. You will likely meet with the attorney on more than one occasion to answer questions, provide documents and for the attorney to answer any questions you might have. After the bankruptcy petition (legal papers filed with the bankruptcy court that commences your bankruptcy proceeding) is filed, you will be required to appear in court on at least one occasion, the Meeting of Creditors, for a Chapter 7 filing, and probably more than one appearance if your bankruptcy petition is a Chapter 13 filing (Meeting of Creditors and Confirmation Hearing). Chapter 7 is a liquidation proceeding under the United States Bankruptcy Code. In a Chapter 7 proceeding, a trustee appointed by the bankruptcy court will take custody of and sell off any of your non-exempt assets. The money received from this sale will be used to pay your creditors. Your debts are then discharged. This means that creditors are forever prohibited to try and collect on these discharged debts in the future. Certain debts, like taxes, alimony, child support, student loans, and debts that have not been listed in the Chapter 7 petition (as well as debts which have been incurred as a result of either an intentional tort or the defrauding or misleading of a creditor) are not dischargeable. This means that after the discharge, you will continue to be liable for these debts. get free advise from Amherst Bankruptcy Lawyers they realy can help you all the way.
