  1. Mar 24 - Budget Impasse

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

    March 24, 2011

    http://www.ilw.com/immigrationdaily/digest/2011,0324.shtm

    ITEMS

    1. Comment: Budget Impasse - The current continuing resolution

    runs out in about two weeks, and the budget impasse continues.

    All three sides - the Administration, the Senate Democrats and

    the House Republicans - have indicated that they will wrap up the

    2011 budget this time around instead of passing yet another

    continuing resolution. There is around $50 billion separating the

    sides right now. The House Republicans will be unveiling their

    2012 budget over the coming weeks; they have promised to cut

    entitlement programs - the proverbial third rail of American

    politics. The budget battle is significant for two reasons.

    Firstly, cuts in the budget could hurt non-fee-based benefit

    processing, such as consular processing. Secondly, the 2012

    budget battle might be an epic one, since long-sacrosanct

    entitlements will collide with a Congress elected by popular will

    on an austerity agenda. While we cannot predict the results, we

    can be sure that they will suck the oxygen away from issues

    before Congress including immigration issues. This escalates the

    pressure on the Obama Administration to deliver immigration

    benefits through executive action before the Iowa caucuses. Will

    President Obama do something? Stay tuned.

  2. 95-year-old WWII veteran learns he's not a US citizen and may face deportation

    by , 03-24-2011 at 12:06 PM (Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal)








  3. Your best friend calls you and tells you he/she's really sick? How do you show you care?



    A former client of mine returned to Japan a couple of years ago after having spent a relatively brief time in immigration detention in the US. The person began a new life by getting married in Japan, and the couple started a successful business. Everything seemed to be going well.



    The only problem was that the city where they had chosen to live happened to be located near the center of the March 11 earthquake. The city was not seriously damaged by the tsunami, but there was widespread devastation from the quake.



    Fortunately, the person was able to contact me by email soon after the quake. It turned out that the couple were unhurt and there was only minor damage to their home, but there was widespread death and destruction all around them, with little or no food, water or electricity.



    The only experience worse than the earthquake, the former client also mentioned, was the experience of having been in immigration detention.

  5. H2B Visas - Unemployment rate not helping hotels fill positions


    Hotel News Now, a leading Global Hospitality publication, ran a two-part series about staffing challenges facing the U.S. hotel industry. I was honored to be interviewed by the publication and share my insights on the problems facing hospitality employer in these challenging times.
    With the level of unemployment about 8.5 percent, why do hotels still need foreign workers? There are various reasons, from location to the attitudes of American workers. And changes in schedules and lifestyle have affected one of the former staples of summer work--students.
    The situation is bad for staffing professionals in the industry, said Jacob Sapochnick, a San Diego, California-based lawyer whose practice is devoted to immigration law.
    "Even though they can hire local people, they can never rely on them for the full term," he said. "If you have a large hotel, need 50 housekeepers and hire locally, the turnover is very high. They find a better job or one that pays more. When you have H-2B workers, they know they have them for 10 months. Their visa depends on them working at that hotel."
    The more turnover, the less likely the hotel will function properly, Sapochnick said.
