    He can also recomend country experts outside his specialty.

  4. Jan 11 - 55000 EB2 Visas By Abolishing DV Lottery

    -----------------IMMIGRATION DAILY FROM ILW.COM------------------

    January 11, 2011

    http://www.ilw.com/immigrationdaily/digest/2011,0111.shtm

    ITEMS

    1. Comment: 55000 EB2 Visas By Abolishing DV Lottery - GOP

    Judiciary Committee member Darrell Issa has introduced a bill (

    http://thehill.com/blogs/hillicon-valley/technology/136685-issa-bill-would-give-greencards-to-up-to-55000-science-and-tech-workers

    H.R. 43) to abolish the DV Lottery and move those numbers -

    55,000 visas per year - to advanced degree holders of US

    universities. If such a bill were to become law, this would be

    welcomed by Indian and Chinese nationals who face long waiting

    periods for the EB2 category. And even though Mr. Issa's bill

    seeks to help holders of degrees from US universities, numbers

    are numbers, and there would be more numbers available for those

    who have advanced degrees from foreign universities too. To the

    extent that EB2 numbers are undersubscribed, the overflow numbers

    will benefit those waiting for EB3 benefits also. Our immigration

    system is certainly antiquated and badly in need of reform.

    Abolishing the DV lottery and the Family Based 4th preference,

    and moving the numbers over to the employment side are moves in

    the right direction. The reason that DV numbers and FB4 numbers

    are linked is that the rationale for the DV lottery is to assist

    those nations disadvantaged by "early-mover" nations in the

    chain-migration phenomenon. The primary source of chain migration

    is FB4, hence abolishing DV numbers is best done simultaneously.

    We hasten to add that this would in no way disadvantage those

    aliens who seek to come here, since it is only a fantasy of the

    anti-immigrationists that immigrants come hither for welfare.

    Instead, potential FB4 beneficiaries seek to come here for work,

    and it makes perfect sense to have them enter through the

    employment-based immigration system. The GOP will soon begin the

    clamor for a mandatory E-Verify system. Clearly, some benefits

    will have to be attached to a bill mandating E-Verify to have any

    hope of Senate passage. DREAM is the perfect fit, and we believe

    that the GOP is reconciled to having DREAM enacted, albeit with

    tighter restrictions. However, it is entirely possible that the

    business lobby will attempt to attach various employment-

    immigration riders as soon as an E-Verify bill gathers momentum.

    Mr. Issa's bill is exactly the kind of rider that would work to

    add business support to a bill mandating increased burdens on

    employers as to employment verification. We will know soon enough

    if the Republicans simply want to make noises on American jobs or

    if they are serious about moving a mandatory E-Verify bill. The

    House immigration committee's schedule will reveal the

    leadership's intentions - if its only a hearing, the GOP is just

    scoring cheap political points, if its a markup, the Republicans

    are in earnest. We will be watching, and will keep you up to date

    on developments, stay tuned.

    ITEMS

    1. Comment: King Dethroned - The House GOP leadership decided

    against offering the chairmanship of the House Immigration

    Subcommittee to Steve King, a practitioner of over-the-top anti-

    immigration rhetoric. Instead, the gavel went to Elton Gallegly,

    who is equally anti-immigration, but who shuns the limelight and

    operates quietly. In an interview with the National Journal,

    http://hotlineoncall.nationaljournal.com/archives/2011/01/rep-king-blasts.php

    Mr. King blamed Speaker Boehner for this turn of events, saying

    "John Boehner isn't very aggressive on immigration" (note: Mr.

    King was deprived of his subcommittee gavel before news broke

    about the shooting of Rep. Giffords). We commend the House GOP

    leadership for recognizing that tone matters and hope that

    Republican leaders will seek to silence anti-immigration fanatics

    within the GOP. This is yet another sign that the House

    Republican majority will likely move on immigration legislation

    in the 112th congress, with a bill with a mix of mandatory E-

    Verify plus employment immigration benefits. Such a bill would

    defuse criticism of Republicans as anti-immigration, and split

    the Democrats, who are traditionally against business

    immigration. DREAM might well be a sweetener offered with such a

    bill, especially if the anti-immigration faction of the GOP

    absolutely refuses to support the Republican leadership's

    immigration bill, consequently creating the need for Democratic

    votes, and therefore, of a sweetener. In any event, despite fears

    that the status quo would reign on immigration, the 112th

    Congress is off to a good start. We will be following Congress

    closely, and will keep our readers informed on the latest

    developments, stay tuned.
