WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Keeping his promise to fix the broken immigration system, President Barack Obama unveiled sweeping executive action on immigration Thursday night, Nov. 20, granting temporary legal status and work permits to almost five million undocumented immigrants living in the country in the largest single immigration action in modern American history.
In a primetime televised message from the White House, Obama offered relief for an estimated 4.1 million undocumented parents of U.S. citizens, and about 300,000 undocumented immigrants who came to America illegally as children.
The president also said he would make it "easier and faster for high-skilled immigrants, graduates and entrepreneurs to stay and contribute to our economy," a program that could benefit 600,000 people in the high tech industry.More >
Armed with an affidavit as a condition imposed by Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte, Sen. Antonio Trillanes IV showed up at Bank of Philippine Islands (BPI) Julia Vargas branch, Pasig City 11 am, April 2 but still failed to get a waiver from the Mayor to disprove allegations of PHP 2.4 billion “hidden wealth,” including the PHP 211 million deposit in the said bank.
“I have the affidavit, but there was no waiver,” stressed Trillanes who called Duterte a “coward.”
This time, the tough-talking Mayor wanted all the other presidential candidates to sign a waiver and open all their bank accounts to the public.
Although he was open to showing “all” of his bank transactions during the past 30 years, Duterte insisted all other candidates must be compelled to open all their accounts, too.
