Fight for a safe home

“This is just a part of the larger fight for migrant justice. Immigrants on both sides of the border are routinely denied immigration status, forced into precarious work, and denied access to essential services. Stay tuned for upcoming actions to make our communities safe for all people, regardless of immigration status. Visit http://www.nooneisillegal.org to learn more and join our movement.”

Kinder Morgan – Canada

Kinder Morgan Canada operates a number of pipeline systems and terminal facilities including the Trans Mountain pipeline, the Cochin pipeline, the Puget Sound and the Trans Mountain Jet Fuel pipelines, the Westridge marine and Vancouver Wharves terminals in British Columbia as well as various terminal and crude oil loading facilities in Edmonton, Alberta.

Trans Mountain currently transports approximately 300,000 barrels per day (bpd) of crude oil and refined petroleum from the oil sands in Alberta to Vancouver, British Columbia and Washington state. We are pursuing a proposed $5.4 billion expansion of Trans Mountain, which would increase capacity to 890,000 bpd. Canadian producers and oil marketing companies have signed firm contracts supporting the project for approximately 708,000 bpd. Pending regulatory approvals, we expect the expanded pipeline to be completed in 2019.

No Way

With the FCC's rate caps threatening revenue, prison phone companies have sought new revenue streams with "electronic messaging" services and video chats. Reformers welcome new services for prisoners and their families, but say these options are expensive and highly restrictive compared to services like email or Skype. Companies like Securus have even convinced some sheriff's departments to replace in-person visits with "video visitation," a shift that advocates ardently oppose. Lewis said the companies could box out VRS as well.
TL Lewis is well aware that prison phone companies are looking for new ways to make money. In fact, companies like Securus may now view VRS providers as competition in its emerging videophone market. In its comments to the FCC, Securus boasted about installing 5,000 videophones at US facilities, but opposed HEARD's proposal to require VRS at jails and prisons, arguing that such technology is a privilege, not a right.

Incarcerated Deaf People Locked in American Prisons become ASL interpreters for other prisoners

The members of Silent Voices and a dozen or so classmates are all part of the Louisiana Department of Corrections’ ASL interpreting program, which Griffin touts as one of a kind, at least in the US. Qualified prisoners can earn a certificate in ASL interpreting, which could potentially lead to job opportunities if they are released. Louisiana also uses these “offender interpreters” to interpret for the deaf population in its vast prison system.
