  • SB 1070, Immigrants, African Americans, and People with Disabilities – A Historical Perspective | Day In Washington
    In practice however they served as a green card pun intended for law enforcement to detain individuals with disabilities and added to the societal stigma of disability by encouraging families to send individuals with disabilities to institutions or keep them inside the home Like SB 1070 these laws were often very broad reaching and those targeted for prosecution of violating the ordinances were largely the poor and destitute An additional part of the immigrant legislation allows officers to arrest immigrants unable to show documents proving they re legally in the Slave Ecaping Woodcut country Again this proves to be unimaginative Not only was this technique used specifically to keep Black Freedmen in their place during the Dark days of slavery it also continued informally after emancipation in the form of Sundown Towns in which Black people were legally not permitted in city limits after certain hours for the communities and mostly their own safety Additionally I find myself unable to shake the suspicion that certain immigrant looking Americans may suddenly find themselves deported due to their forgetfulness to carry their birth certificates or naturalization papers This also took place in the past where Freedmen were often abducted from Free cities and states only to find themselves sold into slavery Even though SB 1070 is being portrayed as the textual modern day Latin Apocalypse I do not find myself surprised by its creation Whomever penned the bill obviously believes that Arizona s immigration problem is related to enforcement A significant portion of the Bill is aimed at the police and though they may not wish to assert all of the powers that have been included in the text you can be sure that they will eventually take advantage of the legal opportunities the bill offers them The second point that totally surprises me is my reaction and that is of unadulterated glee I find myself downright giddy of the fact that Arizona has yet again attempted to legislate an undesirable population out of its state borders The so called powers that be were likely very smug about their slight to former the Governor and the Latinos in the State but rather than mobilizing the goose stepping masses to their cause they have found a wall of opposition all but led by the President himself As I mentioned earlier the sort of legislation found in SB 1070 is not new It has been attempted many times over and re used reutilized recycled and repackaged many times over America has seen it in the Anti Indian Sentiment in the settlement of the West the native Bill of Rights American regulations to push out immigrants at the turn of the 20th Century Jim Crow Laws the Anti Chinese Leagues of the West the Japanese Internment of the World War II era the institutionalization of individuals with disabilities all the way to the Anti Muslim sentiment of Post 9 11 Irish Italian Greek Jewish Black Chinese Japanese Hmong and Native American have all been at

  • Service Animals: Too Much of a Good Thing? | Day In Washington
    could find on service dogs for people with autism I have summarized the research here There is absolutely no proof that the presence of an autism service dog for children improves any of these things listed above and no research at all has been done on autism service dogs for adults This statement is simply false Now some people may read the above statement and not see anything unusual about it Try this one Unlike other assistance dogs which are trained to respond to commands Taylor s dogs must be trained to a higher level of intelligence because their autistic handlers may not be able to give hand signals or verbal commands Taylor says his dogs can sense changes in people s brainwaves According to Taylor service dogs are trained to focus and react to people s brainwaves Rocko s brainwaves balance out Kevin s and that s how Kevin gets stabilized physically and emotionally In both of these articles a dog s ability to sense a person s brainwaves and to respond with other brainwaves to mitigate a disability are not even questioned They are simply provided both by the media and the families involved as fact I think most people would realize this is quite simply bull The general goal of the disability rights movement is to show that a person with a disability is fundamentally the same as a person without a disability and can participate in most if not all of the same life activities with reasonable accommodation If service animal users and people with disabilities are portrayed as unreasonable uninformed and completely unable to function without the presence of an animal people with disabilities no longer look like potential employees customers or friends If the current trend in service animal use continues unchecked and the media coverage we are seeing now keeps pace this new and undesirable image of people with disabilities may become instilled in the general public and essentially negate the social progress the disability community has made in the past 20 years Tags access ADA animal autism guide dog Law lawsuit rights service service dog Post navigation Rush Limbaugh Endorses R word Federal Government Hiring Expo April 26 Save the Date 7 comments for Service Animals Too Much of a Good Thing Pingback Service Animals Too Much of a Good Thing Disaboom Jane Miller LISW CDBC February 14 2010 at 1 21 pm To learn more about Psychiatric Service Dogs please read my book Healing Companions Ordinary Dogs and Their Extraordinary Power To Transform Lives which is the first book written about PSDs The book includes compelling stories of veterans and others a wealth of information and resources that will help you a loved one or mental health professional learn more about how PSDs can transform people s lives appropriately and ethically Thanks so much Warmly Jane http www healing companions com Joy van Veen February 14 2010 at 5 19 pm I am in full agreement with the article As both

  • Rosa’s Law or Sticks and Stones | Day In Washington
    another Why is this issue particularly pertinent today Because of Senate Bill 2781 also called Rosa s Law which was introduced last fall by Senators Barbara Mikulski D MD and Michael Enzi R WY This legislation requires that in federal health education and labor policy statutes the terms mental retardation and mentally retarded must be substituted with the terms intellectual disability and individual with an intellectual disability Because of the high prevalence of stigma bullying and discrimination many advocates in the disability community are eager to see a change in the language used to describe this population On the other hand others worry that this is a distraction and that rather than changing wording we should emphasize changing attitudes This is not the first time language has been updated Almost every insult that young people throw back and forth on the playground was at one point accepted medical terminology for individuals with disabilities Previously terms such as feeble minded and idiot were considered appropriate then came the term mentally retarded People who favor a change in attitude demand to know how this latest change in language is anything more than just substituting one inadequate term for another and how it will affect the way individuals with intellectual disabilities are treated When Rosa s Law was being considered by the Maryland General Assembly Rosa Marcellino s 13 year old brother Nick testified on her behalf He stated Some people say they are just words and it s not going to make a difference if we just change the words Some say we shouldn t worry about the words just the way we treat people But when you think about it what you call people is how you treat them If we change the words maybe it ll be the start of a new attitude towards people with intellectual disabilities They deserve it What difference does our word choice make When we choose a certain word are we setting up a certain expectation based on the label or on the person s background and baggage Is this something about which we should be cautious What kinds of negative stereotypes can we be promoting by our use of certain language Or is the name just a symptom of the underlying problem Sticks and stones what do you think For More Information To read the article in the Ragged Edge Magazine visit http www raggededgemagazine com blogs edgecentric archives 2005 11 the bad blind html More information about Senate Bill 2781 Rosa s Law can be found at http thomas loc gov cgi bin bdquery z d111 s 02781 Senator Barbara Mikulski s statement on the introduction of Rosa s Law is available by visiting http mikulski senate gov record cfm id 319975 Senator Enzi s newsletter comments on Rosa s Law can be found at http enzi senate gov public index cfm Fuseaction NewsRoom Newsletter Email id 99473400 802a 23ad 46d8 4ccfef00e351 SuppressLayouts True Reposted from Disability gov Tags developmental disability intellectual disability
