Des images contre les clichés sur les oubliés de Calais

Dans son livre 
Des hommes vivent ici (1), 
la photographe Marion Osmont raconte le quotidien des migrants le long du littoral de la 
Manche, dix ans après 
la fermeture du camp de Sangatte. Un travail
 plein d’humanité 
et de dignité.

calais_m

Un grand hangar vide. Au loin, un groupe d’hommes. Sept ou huit Africains, assis ou debout autour d’une table, jouent aux cartes. Un clair-obscur d’humanité au milieu du néant. « Je suis contente d’avoir pu prendre cette image, raconte son auteure, la photographe Marion Osmont. Berlusconi, le passeur (en capuche – NDLR), m’a dit “Tu fais ce que tu veux”, cet état de grâce a duré trois secondes. Cette image montre l’attente d’une journée ordinaire. Il ne se passe rien. »

Pendant plus de deux ans, Marion Osmont a photographié la vie quotidienne des migrants de Calais. Elle publie ces photos dans un livre au titre éloquent Des hommes vivent ici. D’une grande sobriété, ses images montrent la vie dans le dépouillement : la préparation du feu, la cuisine, les nuits dans le squat, l’ennui, le linge qui sèche sur un arbre, la traque, le froid, la peur. Loin des clichés vus et revus sur les migrants de Calais, les photos de Marion Osmont sont remplies d’humanité et de dignité.

« On parle trop souvent d’eux et de nous »

Son travail est le résultat d’une démarche mûrement réfléchie. « On parle trop souvent d’eux et de nous. Je ne voulais surtout pas ça. Je pense que beaucoup de gens, s’ils savaient ce qu’il se passe à Calais, ne trouveraient pas ça normal. J’ai donc travaillé à créer de l’empathie. » MarionOsmontcouv

Pour cela, la photographe s’attache à suivre deux migrants « au plus près », Ammanuel et Haroon. Les deux hommes ne se laissent pas simplement photographier, ils sont des acteurs à part entière de la démarche du livre. « Ils m’ont montré des lieux, des campements, m’ont raconté leurs parcours. Ce n’était pas facile pour eux, mais il leur paraissait important que leur histoire soit connue. Pour que ça puisse provoquer des changements. »

Deux migrants suivis au quotidien

Marion Osmont attend quelques semaines après le démantèlement de la jungle pachtoune en septembre 2009 pour commencer son travail. « Tous les migrants étaient revenus, il fallait montrer que cette opération n’avait servi à rien. » Parisienne, elle passe ses week-ends à Calais pour suivre ces deux migrants qui ne sont pas « de passage », contrairement à ce que prétendent les ministres de l’Immigration de Nicolas Sarkozy. Tous les deux demandeurs d’asile, ils attendent la réponse de l’Office français des réfugiés (Ofpra) dans le plus total dénuement.

Des hommes vivent ici montre la vie des migrants en plan large. « C’est une forme de respect, dit-elle. Ils sont sous pression en permanence, les flics les réveillent toutes les nuits, les journalistes peuvent être parfois intrusifs. Je voulais des photos assez douces. » Exclues donc les images de la distribution, où l’on voit les migrants dans les files d’attente ou manger sur un bout de trottoir. Pendant longtemps, la photographe s’est aussi refusée à immortaliser ces séances durant lesquelles les migrants se brûlent les doigts pour échapper aux renvois vers d’autres pays d’Europe.

Trajet décomposé

Dans cette vie quotidienne calaisienne, la police est omniprésente. Dès l’aube, lorsqu’elle intervient dans les squats pour arrêter les migrants. Dans les évacuations de campements ou les destructions de squats. À chaque fois, il faut trouver un nouvel endroit où dormir, toujours plus loin, plus caché. Dans la série de photos Chez Haroon, Marion Osmont décompose le trajet pour rejoindre la cachette du Soudanais : « Traverser un hangar / se glisser dans un trou / longer un tunnel aménagé sous le sol / passer un premier mur / marcher le long d’un corridor à travers ronces / passer un deuxième mur / marcher sur un toit / passer par une fenêtre cassée / monter un escalier défoncé. » Délogé, Haroon devra s’installer encore plus loin…

Aujourd’hui, Haroon et Ammanuel, tous deux déboutés du droit d’asile après des années d’attente, sont partis vers d’autres horizons. « Je les imagine quelque part en Europe, à la rue», dit Marion Osmont. Encore plus brisés que lors de leur arrivée à Calais, il y a quelques années. « Il était encore temps de les aider alors. Avec des soins psychologiques, peut-être qu’ils auraient pu se récupérer. C’est un immense gâchis. » Aujourd’hui, environ 300 migrants survivent à Calais même. Quelque 500 autres s’éparpillent dans des petits campements le long du littoral. Dans des conditions toujours plus précaires.

However Well Black Students Perform, Teachers Still Think They’re Struggling

Hua-Yu Sebastian Cherng, assistant professor of international education at New York University, has written thousands of pages? worth of research and commentary over the course of his career. But growing up, his teachers gave him no reason to believe he would end up in this position. As an Asian-American student living in Maryland, he consistently ran up against stereotypes suggesting that he should be uninterested or incompetent in English language arts. 

In elementary school, Cherng was placed in remedial English, even though there was no evidence he needed it. When he won a high school poetry contest, he said, an English teacher reacted with indifference.

He attributes the behavior to stereotypes that Asian students are foreign-born, and thus at a disadvantage in English language arts. Instead, teachers expected Cherng to excel in math, even though that?s a subject in which he would have appreciated extra help.

?I was born in the U.S. and having many English teachers assume I wasn?t interested in the topic or that I wasn?t good at English, it became a self-fulfilling prophecy,? Cherng said. ?At the end of high school, I thought I wasn?t good at writing.?

Because of Cherng?s experiences, he was less than surprised at the outcome of his latest research looking at the relationship between teacher expectations and student achievement. Stereotypes about students? race and class affect how math and English teachers expect students to perform, even after taking students? test scores and rates of homework completion into account, according to the research.

Math and English teachers are significantly more likely to think their classes are too difficult for black and Latino students. English teachers also have lower expectations for Asian students. This, in turn, negatively affects these students? expectations of themselves. 

Black students, in particular, bear the brunt of low expectations. Compared to white students, math and English teachers are more than twice as likely to say that black students cannot handle the difficulty of their classes.

However, black students do not shirk these academic challenges, even in the face of bias. Overall, students? grades are negatively impacted by teachers? underestimations, per Cherng?s research. However, black students? grades do not suffer as much as those of other groups, even though they face heightened prejudices. These results suggest a ?narrative of resistance,? in which black students work extra hard to prove their teachers wrong, according to Cherng.

In an optimistic way, it?s a problem we can solve. If we change things like how we train teachers… I think [it] could make a world of difference.
Hua-Yu Sebastian Cherng, assistant professor of international education at New York University

?If a student is in a classroom and can sense a teacher thinks poorly of them, black students in particular may resist that narrative, resist fulfilling that narrative, and within the classroom may be able to fight it,? Cherng said. ?This could translate as not being as harmed as other students in the short term or medium term.?

In the long run, though, these biases can be devastating. Black students hold harsh views about whether or not they can succeed in higher education.

?The longer-term consequences on things, like whether or not they think they can go to college, it takes years to form these ideas,? Cherng said. ?In that sense, it?s a more subtle influence that can actually hurt black students more than other students.?

To glean his results, Cherng used data from the Education Longitudinal Study of 2002, which surveyed 10,000 high school students and their teachers. This survey asked teachers about their expectations of students, which Cherng then compared to students? expectations of themselves and their GPAs. 

While the results are depressing, Cherng says they also give him reason to hope. 

?In an optimistic way, it?s a problem we can solve,? he said. ?If we change things like how we train teachers, if we change things like making teachers able to acknowledge that they have biases, I think [it] could make a world of difference.?

Protecting The Environment And Growing The Economy Go Hand-In-Hand

San Francisco has reduced its carbon emissions by 28 percent since 1990, while growing its GDP by 79 percent. And it?s far from alone. Across the country, cities have been proving that protecting the environment and growing the economy go hand-in-hand.

A big part of this story is that cities ? large and small, in red and blue states ? have been transitioning away from coal and toward cleaner sources of energy. Clean energy sources are at their cheapest prices in history, and since burning coal leads to asthma, lung disease, cancer, heart disease, birth defects, and countless other illnesses, consumers are increasingly demanding cleaner energy. As a result, coal production is no longer economically competitive.

In fact, since 2010, nearly half of all U.S. coal plants have closed or switched to cleaner energy sources. As a result, the number of Americans dying each year from pollution from coal-fired power plants has been cut from 13,000 to about 7,500. That is great news for our health and environment ? and it?s also been good for our economy.

Today, nearly a half million people work in the solar and wind industries, while only about 65,000 people work in coal mines. Jobs in the mines started dying long before coal plants started to close, because technology has allowed coal companies to mine with very few miners. There were more than 800,000 miners in the U.S. in the 1920s. By the time coal production peaked in 2008, the number was down to 82,000. As cleaner energy replaces coal, that number has fallen even further.

We ought to demand that government leaders do more to spur job growth outside of mining in coal communities.

In the years ahead, as the price of clean energy continues to fall, clean energy jobs will continue to grow ? and cities like San Francisco are helping to lead the way. Seventy percent of greenhouse gas emissions come from urban areas, which means that cities play a vital role in accelerating the transition to cleaner energy.

San Francisco is one of twelve U.S. cities that belong to the C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group. Together, the twelve have pledged to deliver up to 131 million metric tons of CO2 savings by 2025. As part of this work, San Francisco has pledged to make its electricity at least 50 percent renewable by 2020, and 100 percent by 2030. And technology companies, from Apple to Facebook, have turned to clean energy as well?because they recognize that doing so is good for their business.

Replacing coal with energy from solar, wind, and natural gas is bringing broad benefits to communities across the U.S. But the economic side effects ? the lost jobs in coal ? are concentrated in a few regions.

We cannot forget that coal workers powered America for more than a century. In recent years, coal companies have been walking away from the health care and pension obligations they owe their workers, while politicians have been making promises they can?t possibly keep about putting miners back to work. We should not tolerate either.

The economic reality is coal mining jobs aren?t coming back. Washington can no more save those jobs than it could have saved the jobs of horse-and-buggy drivers 100 years ago. Instead, we ought to demand that government leaders do more to spur job growth outside of mining in coal communities. San Francisco?s transition to 50 percent renewable sources is expected to generate over 5,000 clean energy jobs in the solar and wind industries.

The impact of coal on our health and planet, and what we can do to help coal communities affected by job losses, is the subject of a new film that will air next month on the National Geographic Channel called ?From the Ashes,? co-produced by Bloomberg Philanthropies. The film features several organizations in the Western and Appalachian regions that are providing economic development assistance and job training for out-of-work miners. To support this work and raise awareness of the need for more of it, Bloomberg Philanthropies has created a $3 million grant for these organizations and is matching donations from the public.

Citizens, cities, and businesses are leading where Washington won?t. Together, we can build a coal-free future that benefits all Americans, in all regions of the country ? while also allowing the United States to continue to be a global leader on climate change.

John McCain: Trump Scandals ‘Reaching Watergate Size And Scale’

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) just used the ?W? word when talking about the growing scandals surrounding President Donald Trump

?We?ve seen this movie before. It?s reaching Watergate size and scale,? he said at a Republican event on Tuesday night, according to GOP strategist Ana Navarro. ?This is not good for the country.?

However, despite the Watergate comparison, McCain also said he was against appointing a special prosecutor, according to New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman. 

McCain was speaking to Bob Schieffer of CBS News at the International Republican Institute dinner hours after news broke that Trump reportedly asked James Comey, who was FBI director at the time, to drop his investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn

According to the Daily Beast, Schieffer asked McCain what advice he would give to Trump. 

The senator told the former ?Face the Nation? host that he would tell the president ?the same thing that you advised Richard Nixon, which he didn?t do … get it all out … it?s not going to be over until every aspect of it is thoroughly examined and the American people make a judgment. And the longer you delay, the longer it?s going to last.?

McCain also called Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov ?an old KGB apparatchik stooge.?

Lavrov was in the Oval Office last week with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak when Trump reportedly shared ?highly classified information,? according to a Washington Post article Monday.

Drew Brees Talks Balancing Football With Raising 4 Kids

Drew Brees is one of the NFL?s good guys. Few players are more involved in the community, and few are more respected on and off the field. The 38-year-old quarterback of the New Orleans Saints is now working to raise awareness about the signs of exertional heat stroke, a significant cause of death in high school athletes, with ?The Heat Factor? campaign.

The onetime Super Bowl winner and MVP is a 10-time Pro Bowl selection who won the prestigious Walter Payton Man of the Year Award in 2006. Brees talked with HuffPost about exertional heat stroke, the challenges of being a dad in the NFL (he has four kids) and why he doesn?t play basketball.

There is often a misdiagnosis between concussions and exertional heat stroke. 

Well, I would just say the symptoms are similar. If you see somebody on the football field kind of stumbling around, you might initially think he?s concussed, took a shot to the head. Whereas it might be a case of EHS, and his body temperature is now at 104 or above and he?s extremely dehydrated and he?s starting to go into some type of organ issues that?s affecting his brain as well. That?s obviously a different situation that requires immediate attention. There?s protocols in place to try to get the body to cool down immediately before getting any type of organ damage or potentially death.

I think the concussion element is, short term you?re going to be OK, but long term there?s serious effects. If you don?t address a concussion right now and give it the proper rest ? really with the concussion just comes rest, allow it to heal. With EHS, it?s not we?re just going to rest and allow yourself to heal. It?s we got to cool the body down now or else we?re risking organ failure or death.

So I?d say there?s obviously a difference. While the symptoms might appear to look the same on the field, they?re obviously different protocols.

How do you pair being a dad with being an All-Pro quarterback? 

It is [hard], and I think it gets harder as the kids get older, because they?re involved in so many activities and you want to be at all of them. But I?d say my kids know that when I go to work, ?Dad?s got a great purpose for what he?s doing at work.?

How hard is it to physically leave the house and go to work?

So while at times it?s hard to leave the house because maybe my daughter is saying ?don?t leave? and stuff like that, I feel like I have a good system in place. My wife is so supportive and such a cornerstone with her communication, like ?Hey, daddy?s gotta go to work, or daddy?s working hard to support the family, or daddy?s gotta get ready to go play the big football game and we?re gonna go see him in the game this weekend.? They understand it.

She?ll bring them up to the facility sometimes, like if I know I?m going to have a late night, she?ll bring them up to the facility and maybe have dinner together and run around the indoor facility just for a little while. But for the most part, I structure my day around, ?OK, when are they going to be awake? When am I going to be with them?? I try to be there for them at night to read them a book before they go to bed on the busy days, so we have our moments.

What is the daily routine? 

I leave the house before everybody is up. I?m an early riser. In the offseason, I usually get up around 4, 4:30 ? that?s the offseason so I try to get work done before the kids get up around 6, 6:30. But during the season I usually get up around 5, head into the facility, and kind of start my day off by watching film, getting ready for the day, going to the weight room, get my body loose, go get breakfast, and we kinda start the day.

It?s meetings, about three hours. It?s all installation, game planning, looking at film of the opponent, then you go out on the field and you?re in practice for three hours, then it?s back to the weight room. You?ve got your media responsibilities, then it?s going to the training room ? let?s take care of the body ? and then go to the post-practice meetings where we watch practice and make corrections. Then it?s all right, let?s study the game plan. Make sure to head home at a certain time to know I?ll catch the kids before bed. It?s a full day.

What role then does sleep play for you?

Right at seven hours, seven-and-a-half hours, is kind of my sweet spot. Unfortunately, I probably get a lot less than that. When I?m in heavy training during the season, I really try to do that because the recovery is vital, it?s vital ? healing the body, healing the mind. But during the offseason, I probably don?t get as much rest as I should because I?ve got a lot going on.

Do you dabble in hoops at all?

I love basketball, but I don?t really play because of the injury risk. I dunk on people all the time though. [Laughs] No, no dunking on people.

Zac Efron Will Use His Washboard Abs To Play Serial Killer Ted Bundy

Zac Efron has been a good ?Neighbor? in the past, but you won?t want him living next door this time. The handsome abs magnate will play handsome murder magnate Ted Bundy in an upcoming movie.

?Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile? will incorporate the perspective of Bundy?s longtime girlfriend, Elizabeth Kloepfer, a role that hasn?t been cast yet. Kloepfer suspected Bundy was responsible for the murders of at least 30 women and ultimately turned him into the police. 

Joe Berlinger, best known for his ?Paradise Lost? documentary trilogy about the murder convictions of the West Memphis Three, will direct the movie. First-time screenwriter Michael Werwie, who also adapted the nonfiction serial killer book Lost Girls as an Amazon vehicle for Sarah Paulson, wrote the script, which was on the 2012 Black List. In a 2013 interview, Werwie said the movie will forego the violence of Bundy?s murders in favor of a psychological examination.

?The common thread among everyone who knew him was that he had this facade that led you to believe that there was no possible way for this to be true,? Werwie said. ?It was essentially a con-man story. It was a classic unreliable narrator. … And remember, the drama is not from his admission of guilt ? it?s from his admission of guilt to the person he loves most.?

Efron has gone dramatic before, namely in ?The Paperboy? and ?Parkland.? Still, this is a left turn for a guy who last year starred in ?Dirty Grandpa? and ?Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates? and will soon be seen in a big-screen ?Baywatch? reboot. But it also makes sense: Bundy was infamous for using his charisma to lure victims, and that?s basically what Efron did to America. This will be an interesting opportunity for the 29-year-old actor to break out of his bro-comedy bubble.

Producer Michael Costigan said the thriller will operate in the vein of ?Nightcrawler? and ?The Jinx,? according to Deadline. Production reportedly begins Oct. 9, though no target release date has been announced.

Lawmakers From Both Sides Of The Aisle Fume Over Trump Leak Allegations

Members of Congress from both sides of the aisle were upset by revelations that President Donald Trump may have revealed highly classified information during a meeting with the Russian ambassador last week.

On Monday, The Washington Post reported that Trump had disclosed ?code word? intel to Ambassador Sergey Kislyak, ?jeopardized a critical source of intelligence on the Islamic State? and harmed U.S. ties with an unnamed ally.

Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) characterized the report as ?disturbing? and said, if true, such behavior would put ?at risk the lives of Americans and those who gather intelligence for our country.?

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) called the leak a ?very serious matter? during a CNN town hall on Monday. She tweeted that if Trump ?blew a classified source unwittingly, it is a problem. If it happened intentionally, the stakes are even higher.?

Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) said such a revelation ?breaks the trust of our allies and puts lives at risk.?

?If literally anyone else did what President Trump is reported to have done, there would be an immediate criminal investigation,? Booker stated.

Sen. Mark Warner (D-Va.), the top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, described Trump?s alleged behavior as a ?slap in the face to the intel community.?

Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-Fla.) went one step further.

?I believe that the president is desperate for attention and needs psychological help,? she said in a statement provided to CBS Miami.

Other Democrats also chimed in: 

On the Republican side, Rep. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) said the White House has ?to do something to bring itself under control and in order.?

?Obviously, they?re in a downward spiral right now, and they?ve got to figure out a way to come to grips [with] all that?s happening,? Corker said.

House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) had a more subdued reaction. Through a spokesperson, his office said ?protecting our nation?s secrets is paramount,? then requested a ?full explanation of the facts.?

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) called the report ?disturbing,? but also noted to The Associated Press that the president ?does have the right to do that.?

Other GOP lawmakers expressed similar thoughts, reiterating concerns about the cozy relationship the Trump administration seems to have with Russia.

U.S. Says Trump ‘Can’t Imagine Russia Is Pleased’ With North Korea Missile

WASHINGTON, May 14 (Reuters) – U.S. President Donald Trump ?cannot imagine Russia is pleased? with North Korea?s latest missile test on Sunday, as it landed closer to Russia than to Japan, the White House said in a statement.

?With the missile impacting so close to Russian soil ? in fact, closer to Russia than to Japan ? the President cannot imagine that Russia is pleased,? the White House said in its statement.

The launch served as a call for all nations to implement stronger sanctions against reclusive North Korea, the White House added.

Now, one can’t have it both ways. One can’t say both that ID is unfalsifiable (or untestable) and that there is evidence against it. Either it is unfalsifiable and floats serenely beyond experimental reproach, or it can be criticized on the basis of our observations and is therefore testable. The fact that critical reviewers advance scientific arguments against ID (whether successfully or not) shows that intelligent design is indeed falsifiable.

Dogs are, by definition, cute. The reason why we love them, however, may not be as simple. Scientists theorize why we love small animals and dogs so much is because they had evolved alongside humans and, in the process, gained pedomorphic features (physical characteristics reminiscent of a human child) to encourage humans to adopt and care for them.> The theory could be further explained by scientific studies discovering that interacting with a dog produces oxytocin in our brains, a happy chemical.> Our bodies are wired to care for dogs and, unsurprisingly, dogs have a similar chemical reaction when interacting with trusted humans. Dogs and humans have evolved alongside each other and have adapted together, resulting in a perception of ?cuteness? for a mutually-beneficial relationship. Find out more at: Google page.

Trump Plans Likely To Aggravate U.S. Inequality: Nobel Winner Deaton

BARI, Italy (Reuters) – U.S. President Donald Trump?s economic policies risk creating growth that mostly benefits the rich and aggravates income inequality in the United States, Nobel Prize-winning economist Angus Deaton said.

Trump was swept to power on promises of help for poorer Americans but Deaton said his proposals to roll back regulations on finance and industry and cut healthcare benefits would mostly help corporate groups with political influence.

Trump?s plans to cut taxes and raise trade barriers, if enacted, might give a short-term income boost to some workers but would not deliver the long-term growth that is essential for mitigating the effects of inequality, he said in an interview.

?I don?t think any of it is good? for addressing income inequality, said Deaton, a Princeton University professor, who won the Nobel Prize for economics in 2015 for his work on poverty, welfare and consumption.

He was speaking on Friday after addressing a meeting in Italy of finance ministers and central bankers from rich nations at which inequality topped the official agenda.

The political shocks in 2016 of Trump?s U.S. presidential election victory and Britain?s Brexit vote have been linked to widespread dissatisfaction with stagnant living standards for many workers, forcing policymakers in many countries to grapple with ways to narrow the gap between the rich and poor.

Income inequality has grown sharply in the United States over recent decades and the World Bank says that at a global level the gap has widened too since the 1990s, despite progress recently in some countries.

The Trump administration says it will lift U.S. economic growth to more than 3 percent a year and bring more manufacturing jobs back to U.S. shores, helping workers.

But many economists say growth like that will be hard to achieve with employment already high and the baby boom generation retiring in large numbers too.

Deaton said restoring stronger economic growth, preferably through encouraging more innovation, would help reduce the anger among many people who feel they have been left behind.

?A rising inequality that probably wouldn?t have bothered people before does become really salient and troublesome to them (during periods of low growth). It poisons politics too because when there are no spoils to hand out it becomes a very sharp conflict,? he said.

Deaton said he did not think inequality was inherently bad as long as everyone felt some benefit from growth.

?But I do care about people getting rich at public expense,? he said, referring to political lobbying by business groups.

This Dreamer Works For The Politicians Who Will Decide Her Fate In The U.S.

One day earlier this year, then-Sen. Jeff Sessions passed through the cafeteria in a Senate office building to buy lunch. The Alabama Republican was slated to become the attorney general under President Donald Trump and help lead an immigration crackdown. Having railed for years against undocumented immigrants, Sessions signaled a new hard-line approach to deportations in the Trump era.

The Senate cashier who rang up Sessions that day was a 26-year-old mother of three from El Salvador, Ana Gomez Ramirez. She is a so-called Dreamer: a young immigrant who came to the country as an undocumented child. She recognized Sessions and knew how he felt about people like her who had entered the country illegally. The soft-spoken Gomez Ramirez greeted him with a hello. Sessions politely asked her how she was doing.

?He was nice,? Gomez Ramirez recalled after a recent shift. ?Even though he doesn?t want us here.?

Like hundreds of thousands of other Dreamers, Gomez Ramirez received a temporary work permit and a reprieve from deportation under President Barack Obama?s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. As a DACA recipient, she has felt the whiplash of the government?s shifting policy toward immigrants ? all while serving and cleaning up after the very politicians who will determine her family?s future here.

Her route to the Senate basement began in 2005. Her mother was living in Washington at the time, and she used the family savings to arrange to bring her to the U.S. Gomez Ramirez was just 14 and living alone in El Salvador, where there was a lack of jobs and a lot of violence. She crossed the U.S.-Mexico border and reunited with her mother and older sister in Washington.

The details of her 25-day journey are still fresh in her mind 12 years later. Traveling through the Guatemalan countryside. The 24 hours she spent cramped in the luggage hold at the bottom of a moving bus. The nights sleeping on the cold ground in the desert, wrapped in a sweater an old woman gave her. The demands by ?coyotes? that her family send more money. And, finally, her passage across the border and into Texas.

Gomez Ramirez started working as soon as she arrived in Washington, first at a McDonald?s and then, after she quit high school to earn more money, at a food supplier making Indian food, where she logged 13-hour days. She worked as a restaurant server, a dishwasher and as the lone woman on a car wash crew, scrubbing and detailing cars eight hours a day in the hot sun. She always sent a portion of every paycheck back to her grandmother in El Salvador.

She went on to have three girls with her husband, Franklin, a fellow Salvadoran she met at church in the U.S. She never left Washington, not even when her father was murdered in El Salvador in 2009 or when her grandmother died in 2010, knowing that if she went to the funerals she might never return to the U.S. She worked to improve her English and re-enrolled in school. She studied while riding the Metro to and from the car wash. She attained her GED.

In 2012, Obama announced the DACA program. Under the rules, undocumented immigrants who came to the country as minors could apply for deferred action from deportation and, if approved, get a work permit. Some 750,000 Dreamers ? named for the Dream Act, a failed bill that would have created a permanent program through Congress  ? have received permission to stay in the U.S. through DACA.

Gomez Ramirez was afraid to apply at first: ?I didn?t know if they would grant it or deport me. The last word is theirs.? But with her family?s encouragement and the help of a legal aid group, she rounded up all the documentation showing how long she?d been in the U.S. and submitted it to the government. She kept calling U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services to follow up, wondering why friends had been approved before her.

She cried when she was finally granted DACA status roughly a year after she applied. Her aunt threw a party. The next day, she went out to look for a new job. ?I wasn?t afraid,? she said. ?I had the card.?

She applied to work at the Senate office building, no longer worried about her immigration status, and took jobs working at the buffet and inside the coffeeshop. Her husband suffers from a kidney disease and is no longer able to work, so Gomez Ramirez has become the sole breadwinner for the family, stretching her salary to cover rent and groceries for a family of five.

Last year, Gomez Ramirez showed how all workers can benefit when undocumented people are allowed to come out of the shadows. She and other concessions workers in Congress learned that the federal contractor that employs them had misclassified them, which resulted in hourly pay below the legally required prevailing wage. Dozens of low-wage workers were being shorted, right under the noses of members of Congress. With the help of a union-backed labor group called Good Jobs Nation, they took their case to the Labor Department and won backpay.

Gomez Ramirez?s DACA status made her less fearful to speak up about pay and working conditions. She recently spoke at a rally outside the Capitol, calling for higher wages for federal contract workers. Because of the campaign she joined, she said she now earns $1.80 more per hour than she did before, and many other workers have received raises, too.

But her newfound confidence buckled on Nov. 8. She and Franklin stayed up all night as the ballots were counted, and she wept once the election was called for Trump. The Republican candidate had called DACA ?unconstitutional? and vowed to end it. Obama started the program with an executive action; Trump could just as easily unwind it, which would allow Gomez Ramirez?s work permit to expire.

It isn?t at all clear what the new administration will ultimately do. Trump says he wants to focus on deporting people with criminal records rather than those who are working hard and supporting families. He also said he wants to handle DACA recipients with ?heart,? calling the program a ?very, very difficult subject for me.? He has continued the DACA program so far, despite calls from hard-liners to end it.

While Trump has expressed compassion for Dreamers, the administration has continued its tough talk on immigrants who came here illegally, and it has promised to give immigration agents new leeway to do as they want.

Sessions himself has given Dreamers reason to feel uneasy. ?DACA enrollees are not being targeted … [But] everybody in the country illegally is subject to being deported,? Sessions said last month on Fox News. ?So people come here and they stay here a few years, and somehow they think that they?re not subject to being deported. Well, they are.?

Even though Gomez Ramirez got a two-year renewal of her DACA status last year, Trump?s rise to power has changed the way she goes about her day. Last summer her family made the 14-hour drive to Orlando, Florida, to fulfill a promise to take their daughters to Disney World. Now, given the immigration climate, they would no longer risk such a long drive through unknown areas.

?I don?t really go out a lot now,? she said. ?I try to just come to work, do my thing and stay at home. I?m afraid again.?

She feels no more secure for her husband. He has what?s known as temporary protected status from deportation, or TPS. The program allows immigrants to stay in the U.S. because of violence or disaster in their home countries. El Salvador was initially designated TPS because of earthquakes in 2001.

The program exists at the discretion of the Department of Homeland Security, and if the Trump administration doesn?t renew it in early 2018, Franklin and 200,000 other Salvadorans could lose their protected status. On top of the immigration worries, he needs a kidney transplant. His family is trying to raise money for the operation.

His health costs make Gomez Ramirez?s paycheck all the more important. She tries to keep her mind focused on her work rather than on the policies senators are drafting upstairs. She was reminded of this the day Sessions passed through her lane. As she told one of her colleagues afterward, they weren?t there to think about the lawmakers who come down the line or where they stand on immigration. They were there to serve them.

?That is all that we do: We work,? Gomez Ramirez said. ?We don?t come here to do anything else.?
