    The unmatched news resource for immigration law professionals


























    Immigration Daily







    August 17, 2012



















    Comment: Last Second Victory - Lauren Gray, the British-born daughter of a couple who gained citizenship through the E-2 visa category, was just weeks away from being forced to leave the country until DHS granted her a two year reprieve only after Senator Claire McCaskill steeped in and personally contacted Janet Napolitano. Ms. Gray is about to turn 21 and was not able to extend her visa. She graduated from an American university and, like many recent graduates, is currently seeking her first post-graduate job. Ms. Gray had been seeking a visa for more than nine years, but was never able to get one because of visa backlogs. Of course, Ms. Gray's solution is just a temporary one - it grants her only two years of relief. In addition, her younger sister, now 18, will encounter the same situation in just a few years as well. Illogical and inconsistent outcomes are the hallmark of broken policy. While we laud the attempts by DHS to deliver solutions to real problems, like the one face by Ms. Gray and, indeed, the one faced by all applicants for Deferred Action, the solutions are temporary and speak to the need for comprehensive immigration reform. Our system is broken and needs stitches - not an increasing series of band-aids. What can we do? Share your thoughts with us editor@ilw.com and read the full article here.

  4. Aug 16 - Murdoch V. Romney On Immigration

    Comment: Murdoch V. Romney On Immigration

    New York City Mayor Bloomberg teamed up with News Corp. CEO, Rupert Murdoch in Mitt Romney's home base of Boston to push him on immigration reform. The Boston Globe reports
    Both Murdoch and Bloomberg said they were mystified that Romney hasn't done more to reach out to Latino voters by outlining plans to ease immigration rules and resolve the legal status of immigrants already here. "Give them a path to citizenship," Murdoch said. "They pay taxes. They are hard-working people. Why Mitt Romney doesn't do it, I have no idea because they are naturally Republicans." Bloomberg added: "The Republicans walking away from the Latino community is about as dumb a strategy as any political party has ever adopted."
    In a panel discussion, Murdoch argued that there is a desperate need for engineers and other skilled professionals that the United States can't supply internally. And he said he was appalled that the United States doesn't automatically grant work visas to people who graduate from US universities with advanced degrees, instead of forcing them to apply for restrictive H-1B visas.

    Mitt Romney's campaign needs to jettison the rhetoric of the protectionist anti-immigrationist wing of the Republican party, and embrace the pro-American, pro-immigration positions of Ronald Reagan, George W. Bush, John McCain, Michael Bloomberg and Rupert Murdoch. Please let us know your thoughts by writing to us at editor@ilw.com.

    Comment: Ryan On Immigration -

    Mitt Romney's announcement of Paul Ryan as his running mate in the upcoming Presidential election was the national news story of this past weekend, so naturally ILW.COM began digging deeper into his Ryan's voting history and recent commentary on immigration policy. During primary season, Mitt Romney took the hardest stance on immigration enforcement that any major party candidate for President has ever taken. Paul Ryan's history suggests he is more moderate than Romney has been to date, but a few more salient conclusions also come to the forefront. The most significant conclusion is that immigration is not a priority issue for Ryan. He has shown a willingness to work hard for issues that matter to him, like the national budget, and he has rarely spoken out on immigration issues. Thus, his stance on immigration policy can largely only be gleaned from his voting record. Like much of the GOP, Ryan's stance on immigration issues appears to have grown more conservative over the past decade and a half, but does feature a number of splits from his party. A recent Washington Times article suggested Ryan is somewhat in the mold of George W. Bush on immigration, which favored more sensible, realistic policy than much of the party. Nonetheless, Ryan's record on immigration is decidedly mixed. Ryan voted against the DREAM Act in 2010. On the other hand, he voted for a 2002 legalization bill, spoke out in favor of the 2006 Senate immigration bill that W. advocated, and he co-sponsored a 2009 Democratic bill that would have legalized certain immigrant farm workers; in each scenario, he was among the minority in his party. Ryan held the party line on votes to secure the Mexican border by fence and a 2005 bill that would have turn undocumented presence in the US from a civil violation to a criminal one. He also supported expansion of the e-verify program. In sum, Ryan's record is fairly in line with his party's standards, but he has shown a willingness to consider immigration policy on an issue-by-issue basis. Share your thoughts on Romney's Vice Presidential pick as it relates to immigration with us at editor@ilw.com and continue reading the article referenced above here.
