  1. WANT TO HAVE DINNER AT AILA ANNUAL?

    by , 06-13-2014 at 09:38 AM (Chris Musillo on Nurse and Allied Health Immigration)
    by Chris Musillo

    For the last several years a group of AILA lawyers who practice in healthcare have gotten together for a dinner on the Thursday of AILA Annual week. We have about 15 people signed up already. It is a great chance to catch up with old friends (and new ones!). It is a casual event.

    If you are an AILA attorney who is interested in attending this year’s dinner, please let me know how many will be attending from your group by Monday. Friends, spouses, etc. are also welcome.

  2. COULD REP. CANTOR’S LOSS HELP IMMIGRATION REFORM?

    by , 06-12-2014 at 09:27 AM (Chris Musillo on Nurse and Allied Health Immigration)
    by Chris Musillo

    Well, in spite of my headline the answer is probably not, but there is some hope.

    Rep. Cantor (R-VA) was the second-in-command in the Republican-majority House of Representatives. It is generally believed that any material Immigration Reform measure must be driven by the House Republicans. Rep. Cantor was generally known to be a pro-business Republican, who was helping push for immigration reform behind-the-scenes, or at least that is what his primary opponent, Dave Brat, led central Virginians to believe. Mr. Brat’s shocking primary upset on Tuesday seems to mean that immigration reform is dead for 2014.

    So could Rep. Cantor’s loss actually help?

    It seems unlikely but it may not be as bad as it seem today. For one, other immigration-friendly southern Republicans, such as Sen. Lindsay Graham (R-SC), coasted to primary victories. Second, and the reason for my provocative headline, is Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA). Rep. McCarthy is the next-in-line for Rep. Cantor’s No. 2 position within the House Republican leadership. As this article in the Irish Central points out, Rep. Cantor “represents a central California district where pro-immigrant issues, immigrant issues, such as the need for immigrant labor among the huge farming concerns, are critical. His district is 35 percent Latino and he is on record as favoring a version of immigration reform.”

    Yet again leadership on the issue turns back to the Majority Leader Rep. John Boehner (R-OH). Rep. Boehner has straddled the line between the pro and anti-immigration wings of his party, a line that seems aimless. If he can articulate a strategy immigration reform might have a chance. For now, all we have is glimmers of hope.

  3. JULY 2014 VISA BULLETIN

    by , 06-10-2014 at 10:23 AM (Chris Musillo on Nurse and Allied Health Immigration)
    by Chris Musillo

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


    The Philippines EB-3 jumped again. It is now into 2009, which is a two year jump in the last two months.

    India EB-2 also dramatically moved forward. It progressed four years to September 2008.

    The Chinese EB-3 number stayed back at October 2006.

    The All Other EB-3 held steady as well. It remains at April 2011. Our sense is that it will not progress until the next US fiscal year.

  4. US EXTENDS CW-1 PROGRAM THROUGH 2019

    by , 06-04-2014 at 09:51 AM (Chris Musillo on Nurse and Allied Health Immigration)
    by Chris Musillo

    Since 2008, the US has sought to harmonize the immigration laws of the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI) with the mainland US. Part of this initiative was the establishment of a CNMI-Only Transitional Worker (CW-1) visa classification allows employers in the CNMI to apply for temporary permission to employ nonimmigrant workers who are otherwise ineligible to work under other nonimmigrant worker categories. The CW-1 classification provides a method for transition from the former CNMI foreign worker permit system to the U.S. immigration system. The law also provides a CW-2 for dependents of CW-1 visa entrants.

    On June 3, 2014, the US Department of Labor announced that it was extending this program through December 31, 2014. The CW-1 program had been set to expire at the end of this year.

    Philippine nationals make up a large number of the CW-1 visas that are granted. The US Embassy – Manila has a webpage dedicated to explaining the CW-1 process.

    The largest island in the CNMI is Saipan, where 90% of the CNMI population resides. For this reason many people use the “Saipan” to mean “CNMI”.

  5. MAKING THE PAYMENT FOR THE PRODUCTION OF YOUR GREEN CARD

    by , 05-28-2014 at 11:17 AM (Chris Musillo on Nurse and Allied Health Immigration)
    by Chris Musillo

    US Green cards are either approved domestically through the I-485, Adjustment of Status process, or approved abroad through the Consular process. When the approval is made at the Consulate, the immigrant must make a final payment of $165 to the USCIS before they will start the production of the green card.

    The $165 USCIS Immigrant Visa fee is for the cost of producing the green card. This payment must be made through the USCIS ELIS (Electronic Immigrant System) on-line payment system.

    MU Law encourages you to make this payment after you receive the immigrant visa packet from the US Consulate or Embassy, before you come to the US. Until this payment is made the USCIS will not start production on your green card.

    At the time of your interview at the U.S. embassy or consulate, the DOS interviewing officer should give you a USCIS Immigrant Fee handout. This document provides instructions on how to pay the $165 immigrant fee and included your A-Number and DOS Case ID. Your A-Number and DOS Case ID are located in the top right corner.
