MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Reelectionist Senator Nancy Binay has called for a total ban on the employment of foreign workers in the Philippines. Her proposal has outraged Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) who say this will impact their own employment abroad.
But Binay is sticking to her guns.
In an exclusive interview with The Adobo Chronicles, Binay defended her proposal saying that the ban will not affect OFWs since “they’re really considered domestic, not foreign.”
Pressed to elaborate further, the Senator said, “eh di ba mga OFWs natin ay nagtratrabaho abroad bilang domestic help? So hindi sila considered foreign.” (isn’t it a fact that our OFWs work abroad as domestic help? So they’re not considered foreign.)
Ladies and gentlemen, presenting your reelectionist Senator…
WASHINGTON, D.C. (The Adobo Chronicles, Washington Bureau) – Thanks to Donald Trump who just declared that “the U.S. is full,” America has just banned all incoming international flights.
Trump says that outbound international flights will be allowed to leave but incoming flights will asked to immediately turn around.
The new White House directive is part of Trump’s controversial anti-immigration policy.
Travelers flying into the United States are advised to check with their airlines before boarding their flights into the U.S.
MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – One big difference between Duterte critics Rappler CEO Maria Ressa and retired entertainer Jim Paredes is that Ressa will not give up her dual citizenship no matter what.
But Paredes is the opposite. He told The Adobo Chronicles he is happy to let go of one of his citizenships if only to show the world that he is truly sorry about that viral sex video which has brought shame and scandal to both his (dual) citizenships.
”Today, I am announcing that I will voluntarily renounce my senior citizenship in order to protect the dignity and reputation of my country’s senior citizens,” Paredes, 67, said.
