  1. THE DEATH OF S.744

    by , 01-16-2014 at 10:02 AM (Chris Musillo on Nurse and Allied Health Immigration)

    by Chris Musillo


    The internet is abuzz with reports that John Boehner and the House Republicans are in the process of drafting their “principles of immigration reform.” A document that purports to outline the GOP’s position on all facets of the immigration debate: border security, legalization of the undocumented, modernization of quotas and caps, enforcement, and employment verification.

    The release of the “principles” is the eulogy for last summer’s Senate Comprehensive Immigration Reform bill, Senate Bill 744. That bill was the result of brokering by Senate leadership from both Republicans and Democrats. Despite the bipartisan nature of the bill it never was seriously considered by the House – mainly because conservative and tea party House members thought that S.744 was too lenient on punishment for the undocumented. The Senate Bill called for a minimum of 13 years before citizenship.

    Conservative Republicans other problem with S.77 was they wanted a secure southern border before any material legalization program. It seems that fully securing the 2,000 southern border is an impossibility without a massive expenditure.

    House Maj. Leader Boehner (R-OH) is expected to release the “principles of immigration reform” in advance of the President’s January 28, 2014 State of the Union address. These two issues – security on the southern border and legalization -- are the key ones to look for in the Republicans “principles of immigration reform” release. If the GOP really wants immigration reform in 2014 these two issues will be raised in a way that allows for a compromise with Democrats. On the other hand if the “principles of immigration reform” contains unrealistic security aims and onerous legalization pathways, then prospects of immigration reform in 2014 will suffer the same fate as S.744.

  3. FEBRUARY 2014 VISA BULLETIN

    by , 01-09-2014 at 09:37 AM (Chris Musillo on Nurse and Allied Health Immigration)
    by Chris Musillo

    The Department of State has just released the February 2013 Visa Bulletin. This is the fifthVisa Bulletin of the 2014 US Fiscal Year, which began on October 1, 2013.

    The All Other Countries EB-3 date jumped yet again. It has now moved almost two years in the last few Visa Bulletins.

    The Chinese EB-2 and EB-3 continued to be flipped: the Chinese EB-2 is worse than the Chinese EB-3, which means that Chinese EB-3s are processing faster than Chinese EB-2s. Chinese nationals who are EB-2 may be able to file an EB-3. Chinese EB-3s should check with their attorneys to effect this change.

    Unfortunately India EB-2 and India EB-3 remained stuck. India EB-2 and EB-3 have not moved in several months.

    The Philippine EB-3 did advance another 8 weeks. This is the second notable movement for Philippine EB-3 in the last two Visa Bulletins.


    Here is this month's complete chart:

  4. USCIS TELECONFERENCE CENTERING ON H-1B AND SCHEDULE A FOR NURSES

    by , 01-08-2014 at 01:17 PM (Chris Musillo on Nurse and Allied Health Immigration)
    by Chris Musillo

    The USCIS has announced a free teleconference to provide feedback on H-1B nonimmigrant workers and Schedule A immigrant workers, specifically nurses.

    The teleconference is designed to allow a newly assembled team of USCIS government immigration experts to explore how it can “enhance clarity and consistency in health care adjudications, focusing on the nursing industry.”

    The team of USCIS government immigration experts is modeled on the USCIS’ Entrepreneurs in Residence program. The EIR program brought together private sector entrepreneurs together with USCIS immigration experts with the goal of producing clear policies that are consistent with business realities.

    To register the session, visit USCIS’ registration page.

  5. CAN JOHN BOEHNER LEAD ON IMMIGRATION IN 2014?

    by , 01-06-2014 at 08:51 AM (Chris Musillo on Nurse and Allied Health Immigration)
    by Chris Musillo

    The best chance for Comprehensive Immigration Reform in many years was squandered in 2013. An exciting spring led to a successful bipartisan Senate Bill 744 in June. That bill was never seriously considered by the House. Tea Party Republicans effectively held control of the Republican Party’s majority power and refused to allow CIR to come to a vote in spite of Majority Leader John Boehner (R-OH) interest in an immigration bill.


    The Tea Party wing may have overplayed its hand in October’s budget battle that shut down the federal government. After several weeks both parties’ centrists wrestled control back from the extremists and compromised on a bill to end the government shut-down. The wrestling back of control may have signaled that the centrists are ready to lead. If so, Comprehensive Immigration Reform may once again be targeted as the type of policy that both parties can get behind.


    Most significantly, Maj. Leader Boehner hired Becky Tallent in December 2013. Ms. Tallent is a long-time advisor to Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) who has repeatedly made reform the United States’ immigration laws a priority. Reportedly, Ms. Tallent’s hire was made because of Rep. Boehner’s desire for an immigration bill.
