“COMPLAINT FILED AGAINST IMMIGRATION OFFICE & BOARD”

Dear Editor,
 
Oct. 24, 2016 — applied for ID renewal. (expire: 11-17-2016)
Nov. 1, 2016 — Immigration Board stopped the application process.
Nov. 21, 2016 — P-5 Immigration card issued to Ms. M. Gumanab
 
Nov. 22, 2016 — 2:15p.m. Immigration Officer Puni summoned me to see a Mr. Ken in the Immigration Office and to bring the P5 ID that was issued to Ms. M. Gumanab.
 
I called the AG office inquiring the purpose of the visit. I was informed to 'disregard the summons'.



CORRECTION

In yesterday’s story on “Sua county traditional leaders reach concensus for new senators”, the story should state that Muagututia Moevasa Tauoa will represent Sua Dist No. 1 and Fa’amausili Mau Mau Jr. represents Sua Dist. No. 2 Samoa News apologies for the unintentional error.



“IMMIGRATION ID FINALLY RECEIVED”

Dear Editor,
 
It’s been a long 4 weeks of navigating almost impossible odds in renewing a foreigner’s P-5 ID. (see issue Nov. 3, 2016 for more details.) And, it was obvious to me plots were involved to circumvent the processing of Ms. Gumanab’s application.
 



“RESPONSE TO MRS. IPU AVEGALIO LEFITI NOV. 30 LETTER”

Dear Editor,
 
First I must apologize to our massive extended family, here in American Samoa, and all over the world; as your calls of love and great concern are dearly appreciated. I can not stand by anymore and allow Mrs. Ipu Avegalio Lefiti defame an innocent man. Her malicious and false accusations towards an innocent public servant HC Peseta Dennis Fitiuta Fuimaono Lutu, the Chief Immigration Officer.
 



“OPEN LETTER TO SOFIAS — SOCIETY OF FA’AFAFINE IN AMERICAN SAMOA”

Dear Editor,
 
I have always been a proud supporter of the fa’afafine associations in American Samoa, Samoa, and everywhere else our fa’afafine’s are living.
 



“INALIENABLE RIGHTS”

Dear Editor,
 
Thurs 11/9/2016 the Dept. of Human & Social Services staff meeting was called at 1500hrs. It was reported approx. 200 members attended, including 7 Administrative Directors and all the office managers.
 
According to Simeonica Tuiteleleapaga, supervisor for the WIC Clinic, when she arrived it was a celebration atmosphere with loud blaring music and several people dancing. The Director of DHSS, Dr. Taeaoafua, Meki Solomona danced from the entrance to the forefront then ordered the music to be shut off.
 



“GOD HELP AMERICA”

Dear Editor,
 



“WAKE UP AMERICAN SAMOA!”

Dear Editor,
 
Faafetai (Thank You) — and congratulations to the Governor of American Samoa for his immediate response to the food safety of American Samoa.
 
His decision to ban the sales of vegetables, papaya, etc. to the school lunch and to all vendors in American Samoa is an act of LOVE and CARE for his people. For the Governor to ACT within a week of the elections proved him to be a real leader by putting his love for his people first before election & politics.
 



“God HELP American”

Dear Editor,
 
I am 82 years old and have lived under 12 different U.S. Presidents, beginning with Franklyn D. Roosevelt, and I have watched the elections of almost that many.  Sometimes I have been disappointed at the outcome, but never have I experienced the deep sense of foreboding that I felt Tuesday night as it became clear that Trump would win the Presidency.
