Transcript wives of U.S. servicemen, lack of access to accreditation and licensing because of immigrant status, and to many Federally-funded services. HISPANIC WOMEN: Deportation of mothers of American-born children must be stopped and legislation enacted for parents to remain with their children; citizenship provisions should be facilitated. Legislation should be enacted to provide migrant farm working women with the Federal minimum wage rate, collective bargaining rights, adequate housing, and bilingual-bicultural social services delivery. Classification of existing Hispanic American media as "Foreign Press" must be stopped to ensure equal access to major national events. Additionally, the Federal Communications Commission must provide equal opportunity to Hispanic people for acquisition of media facilities (radio and television), for training and hiring in order to provide Spanish-language programming to this major group. PUERTO RICAN WOMEN: Puerto Rican women emphasize that they are citizens of the United States and wish to be recognized and treated as equals. BLACK WOMEN: The President and Congress should provide for full quality education, including special admission programs, and for the full implementation and enforcement at all levels of education. The President and Congress should immediately address the crisis of unemployment which impacts the Black community and results in Black teenage women having the highest rate of unemployment. The Congress should establish a national program for the placement of "children in need of parents," preferably in a family environment, where the status of said children is affected by reason of racial or ethnic . origin. The President and Congress should assure Federally assisted housing to meet the critical need of Black women, especially of low and moderate income, should direct the vigorous enforcement of all fair housing laws, and provide the allocation of resources necessary to accomplish this housing goal. 21
