Stockton group reacts to Obama's immigration reform

STOCKTON- President Obama's speech sounds promising to some immigrants and to many who have friends or family worried about being deported for the wrong reasons.

As Obama detailed his immigration reform order Thursday evening, staff and supporters of El Concilio, the Council for the Spanish Speaking in Stockton, listened closely.

Isabel Martinez, 31, works at El Concilio Preschool off Farmington Road, helping migrant families. Many of them are undocumented.

The president's executive order lifts the threat of deportation from millions of people living in the U.S. illegally. They'll be able to apply for temporary legal status and work permits.

"I'm happy to hear that and share good news to families I work with," Martinez said. "I don't want families to go through what I passed through."

Obama's immigration plan brings relief to local families

Obama's immigration plan brings relief to local families

President Obama will announce executive action on immigration in a primetime address on Thursday. His remarks are eagerly anticipated by millions across the country, including families here in Sacramento.

Gloria Casillas came to the United States 10 years ago where she met her husband and had a 6-year-old son who is an American citizen. While waiting for immigration reform, her biggest fear was getting deported and separated from her son.

The president's impending executive action brought relief because it meant she would be able to drive and work legally in the country. But she felt for
those who may not qualify for the protection.

Stockton cops blast back at council member refuting traffic stop


STOCKTON - It certainly didn't take long for the shine of a successful election night to wear off for soon-to-be Stockton City Council member Christina Fugazi.

Fugazi was pulled over last Friday evening by Stockton police officers working as part of a large gang sweep. A police report said Fugazi rolled through stoplights, and when she was pulled over, there was the odor of marijuana coming from her vehicle.

On her Facebook page, Fugazi disputes police comments in that report, writing, "This simply is not true."

'Neglected' Stockton neighborhood considers leaving

'Neglected' Stockton neighborhood considers leaving

STOCKTON - A movement by a Stockton neighborhood to leave the city for the county is gaining momentum after a series of recent meetings.

Richard Smith and Dale Fritchen hosted an informational gathering early Monday morning to explain the pros and cons to residents, then in the afternoon the two men met with San Joaquin County Sheriff Steve Moore and Stockton Chief of Police Chief Eric Jones.

Smith and Fritchen, who is a former city council member, say Weston Ranch in southwest Stockton is under-served by the city.

"I believe wholeheartedly we're paying more in than what we're getting back in services. Our funds that we generate in Weston Ranch are being used to provide services elsewhere in Stockton," Fritchen said.
