Q&A: Is the biological mother of a ward of the state entitled to “grandparents rights” for his children?

Question by flutterbye: Is the biological mother of a ward of the state entitled to “grandparents rights” for his children?
My husband’s biological mother lost custody of him when he was a toddler. She still had contact with him until shortly after he was an adult. He then cut off all communication with her because she is a very toxic person. She continues to try to force her way into his life by leaving phone messages and emailing him at his business. Now she is saying she is going to sue for “grandparent’s rights” since we don’t allow her any contact with our children. We know she has no money for a lawyer but I know nothing about grandparent’s rights and I would like to know if she has a leg to stand on legally with this issue.

Why does does new law allow illegals to be above the law will Obama sue or needs votes will do nothing?

Question by : Why does does new law allow illegals to be above the law will Obama sue or needs votes will do nothing?
SAN FRANCISCO—If the San Francisco sheriff’s plan becomes reality, illegal immigrants arrested for petty crimes won’t be held in jail longer than necessary, even if federal immigration agents may want them detained for possible deportation.
Instead, starting Wednesday, deputies will treat those eligible for release just like U.S. citizens: They will be cited to appear in court.

City officials, however, aren’t so sure about Sheriff Mike Hennessey’s plan.

The new policy is his attempt to comply with a city law that prevents police from aiding federal authorities in non-felony crimes and a U.S. law that requires authorities to share fingerprints with immigration agents.

“I’m in a position where I’m trying to enforce a local law as well as not violate the federal law and this is the ‘in-between,'” he said. “It’s a difficult area to tread on because emotions run very high here in California and throughout the country on immigration issues.”

Under Hennessey’s policy, illegal immigrants who commit misdemeanors, such as disorderly conduct, trespassing or shoplifting, will not be held while the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) checks their status through a fingerprinting monitoring program.

Hennessey said the change is meant to coincide with the city’s “Sanctuary City” law, which aims to provide refuge for illegal immigrants.

Mayor Ed Lee’s office did not receive advance notice of the policy change, said Christine Falvey, Lee’s press secretary, in a prepared statement.
“We have reached out to federal authorities to determine if this new policy contradicts federal law,” Falvey said. “We are awaiting clarification.”

The sheriff’s new policy comes as the California Assembly on Thursday approved a bill to revise the state’s agreement on using the federal Secure Communities program. The measure, which would allow counties to opt out, now moves to the state Senate.

San Francisco and nearby Santa Clara county have sought permission from the federal government to opt out of Secure Communities.

Hennessey said his policy is similar to San Miguel and Taos counties in New Mexico. He said San Francisco’s policy will protect public safety because immigrants would be more willing to report crimes if they didn’t fear arrest and possible deportation.

ICE Spokeswoman Virginia Kice said Hennessey’s decision is “unfortunate.” In San Francisco County, ICE has taken custody of 731 deportable immigrants since Secure Communities began in June 2010, Kice said.

Nearly 40 percent had prior criminal convictions for felonies or multiple misdemeanors, she added.

Angela Chan, an attorney with the Asian Law Caucus and a San Francisco Police Commission member, said 68 percent of the people deported under the Secure Communities program in California did not commit serious crimes.

“That puts a lot of people at risk,” Chan said. “That’s why there’s such uproar over this program.”

Hennessey said he learned that keeping immigrants with ICE detainers behind bars is a courtesy and not mandatory after meeting with Secure Communities director David Venturella late last year.

Hennessey’s move is drawing some sharp criticism.

“The borders will never be secure as long as places like San Francisco lay out the welcome mat,” said Tom Fitton, president of Judicial Watch, a Washington, D.C.-based legal advocacy group that is suing the city over similar immigration issues.

“These policies put illegal immigrants above the law,” Fitton said.

Fitton cited a 2008 incident in San Francisco where three members of a family were shot to death by a gang member who was an illegal immigrant and had been released from custody as a juvenile.

Ex-Yonkers peace officer says he was fired for saying partner was suicidal

YONKERS — A former peace officer claims his supervisors fired him to try to cover up the fact he had expressed concern about a suicidal coworker who later shot his own wife and killed himself.

In a federal civil rights lawsuit, Carl Amato, 51, of Yonkers claims that high-ranking Yonkers police officials created a hostile work environment, involuntarily committed him for psychiatric observation, linked him with illegal activity and then fired him after the death of his regular work partner Gerard Moray. Moray, 47, committed suicide on April 19, 2006, after shooting his wife, Angela, twice in their Cortlandt home. She survived.

Amato alleges that prior to Moray’s death, Moray told him he was depressed and planning the murder-suicide. In response, he took Moray’s gun away from him and turned it in to the department, describing his concerns to a supervisor, John Bennett. A few days later, Moray returned to work with his weapon and confronted Amato for telling Bennett he was concerned Moray might be suicidal.

In the Nov. 16 lawsuit, filed in U.S. District Court in White Plains, Amato claims that Yonkers Police Commissioner Edmund Hartnett and five other city officials attempted to conceal Amato’s prior warnings about Moray by creating an onerous work environment. On Dec. 5, 2006, Amato, frustrated with his treatment, complained to co-workers that he was looking forward to “getting off this job,” and someone subsequently reported that Amato was suicidal, his lawsuit says.

Three days later, police officials confronted Amato about his co-worker’s expression of concern, and he was forcibly taken to a hospital for observation.

“Amato is not nuts,” said Thomas G. Cascione, Amato’s attorney. “They had him in a mental hospital and they found him perfectly lucid.”

Hartnett declined to comment on the matter on Thursday, citing his policy of not discussing ongoing litigation. Yonkers Corporation Counsel Frank Rubino said on Monday that he could not comment on the matter because the city has not yet been served with a copy of the suit.

While Amato was in the hospital, Yonkers police raided his home and seized a gun collection that Cascione estimated is worth $ 100,000. Cascione said the police have not returned the collection. Amato is a gunsmith.

Amato wants the court to reinstate him to his position with back pay and benefits, require the Yonkers police to return his gun collection and force the department to pay punitive money damages for civil rights violations, defamation and suffering.

According to Yonkers’ 2007 employee salary data, Amato was hired by the city on July 25, 1988, and his gross pay in 2007 was $ 101,148. The city fired him on Nov. 11, 2007 — only months before he could retire — after accusing him of failing to cooperate with a criminal investigation.

Cascione said Amato was never charged with a crime in what was a police investigation into an illegal massage parlor. Amato was fired for refusing to give a statement without the presence of Cascione, who said he was unable to attend the interviews at the times set by police.

New Black Panther Obama DOJ refused to prosecute: ‘I hate white people – all of them!’
“Christian Adams, a former DOJ attorney who quit his job after over the Obama administration’s refusal to prosecute the Panthers, claims the administration has ordered the DOJ not to pursue voting-rights cases against black people. He said the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, which is investigating the dismissal, subpoenaed him and Coates, but their DOJ superiors ordered them not to testify – a violation of federal law.

“According to Adams, Deputy Assistant Attorney General Julie Fernandez, an Obama appointee at the top of the department, announced at a policy meeting that “the voting section will not bring any other cases against blacks and other minorities.”
