Artist brings honour to Lanka

Tributes to my great teacher Lionel Ranaweera, the wellknown artist and teacher of Ananda College. I want to give my gratitude for bringing the honour for Sri Lanka. He has bred a whole lot of young artists in Sri Lanka. In every year his students of 'Jathika Lama Chitra Kala Padanama' brings a lot of gold, silver and bronze medals to Sri Lanka in international children's art competitions. Being a student, I was able to win a lot of medal in the recent past. I can remember those days how he brought up our creativity.

The following was extracted from the Daily News Jan 19, 2006 article.

New Bill for Illegal Immigrants

The bill would essentially separate illegal immigrants now living unlawfully in the US into three categories:

· Those who have been in the US for more than five years could work for six years and apply for legal permanent residency - ie a green card - without having to leave the country. They would also have to pay $2,000 (£1,140) in fines and back taxes, clear background checks - including into criminal records - and learn English.

· Those who have been in the US for two to five years would have to go to border entry points sometime in the next three years, however they could immediately return as temporary workers. This category probably accounts for around three million people.

· Those who have been in the US less than two years would have to leave and wait in line for visas like everyone else to return. This group is probably around a million people.

It was estimated that it could take some illegal immigrants up to 14 years to become citizens, partially because there is an annual limit of 450,000 on green cards, which are a precursor to full citizenship.
