  1. Apr 8 - Vigilante Sentenced To Death

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

    ITEMS

    1. Comment: Vigilante Sentenced To Death - According to a recent

    news report,

    http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20110407/us_nm/us_crime_arizona_border_2

    an Arizona jury has sentenced another anti-immigration vigilante

    to death for the murder of an immigrant family. Many anti-

    immigrationists have no respect for law and order and act as

    vigilantes. We commend the Arizona jury for reaching a just

    result thus reminding the anti-immigrationists that they are not

    above the law.

  2. BIA: Willful Omission may be construed as a Misrepresentation

    by , 04-08-2011 at 05:55 AM (Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal)
    The Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) has just issued a decision that affirms an IJ's finding that a deliberate omission on a refugee application may constitute a willful misrepresentation of a material fact.  See Matter of D-R-, 25 I&N Dec. 445 (BIA 2011).
    The following is the Board's ruling:

    (1) The respondent's deliberate omission from his refugee application that he was a special police officer during the Bosnian War, during which time he served in an entity that was part of the Armed Forces of the Republic of Srpska, could have affected or influenced the Government's decision whether to grant him refugee status and was therefore a willful misrepresentation of a material fact.
    (2) The respondent is removable under section 237(a)(4)(D) of the Immigration and Nationality Act, 8 U.S.C. § 1227(a)(4)(D) (2006), where the totality of the record supported the conclusion that he assisted in the extrajudicial killing of 200 Bosnian Muslims that his unit was involved in capturing, including evidence of his command responsibility, his presence, his platoon's active participation, and the finding that he must have been aware that many other Bosnian Muslims who were similarly situated had been executed nearby several days earlier.
    (3) An Immigration Judge may make reasonable inferences from direct and circumstantial evidence in the record as a whole and is not required to accept a respondent's account where other plausible views of the evidence are supported by the record.
    (4) An expert witness is broadly defined as one who is qualified as an expert by knowledge, skill, experience, training, or education and who has specialized knowledge that will assist the Immigration Judge to understand the evidence or to determine a fact in issue.
  3. Help Save Detroit’s Freedom House

    They may take our lives, but they will never take our Freedom (House)!
    People seeking asylum in the United States often wait many months for their cases to be adjudicated.  They usually have limited resources or connections in the U.S., many do not speak English, and they often have trouble finding work, even if they are lucky enough to obtain a work permit.  One organization that has been helping asylum seekers for almost 30 years is Freedom House in Detroit.  Now, the Detroit Metro Times reports that Freedom House is facing a severe financial crisis that could cause it to shut its doors:
    [Freedom House] unexpectedly lost a major grant, and Deborah Drennan, the executive director, is worried they may have to close. "I've laid off six of my eight staff members, and both myself and the other two are working without a paycheck," Drennan told [the Metro Times] last weekend.  "As you know, sending people away from Freedom House is in many cases a death sentence. I can't let this happen," she said.
    If Freedom House did close, it would be a mini-global tragedy. People come here, somehow, from all over the world. Rwanda, Cameroon, Libya, Russia. When they arrive at this century-old, redbrick house (a former convent)... they are often a malnourished, dehydrated mess. Most have been tortured, physically and psychologically; many have been raped
    Freedom House provides them with shelter, food, social and legal service, job placement, ESL, and safety.  The comprehensive nature of its services makes Freedom House unique.  Freedom House can accommodate 35 people at a time, but because they do not turn anyone away, they are often above capacity.  Over the last three decades, the organization has helped hundreds-maybe thousands-of asylum seekers establish new lives in the United States. 
    Given the current financial crisis, the future of Freedom House seems uncertain.  The loss of this organization would be a great misfortune for asylum seekers in Michigan.  If you would like to send a donation, please visit their website here.  Even a modest contribution of $25 will pay for meals for all the home's residents for one day.  Hopefully, with contributions from friends and some new grant money, Freedom House will be able to continue its works for many years to come.

  4. US ENVOY TO PN NURSES: “BE GREAT”

    by , 04-07-2011 at 01:49 PM (Chris Musillo on Nurse and Allied Health Immigration)
    by Chris Musillo
    "Dare to be great nurses... Dare to build a better Philippines and a betterAmerica." This was US Envoy to the Philippines Henry Thomas' challenge to the graduating class of Angeles University Foundation's College of Nursing on Saturday.
    While his challenge was clear, his views on the likelihood of the retrogression were less so. "All I can say is, clearly, there's a demand in the US but also, as President Obama has said, we have nursing graduates in the US who also have to finish their examinations and obtain jobs."
    This wishy-washy statement perfectly captured President Obama's inconsistency and lack of focus on the necessity of alleviating the retrogression. On one hand, the President has said many of the right things on making an immigration system that is fair to all - American patients, American healthcare staff, and foreign-trained healthcare staff. On the other hand, his lack of action and lack of leadership has frustrated all stakeholders.

  5. Apr 7 - Immigration Absurdity

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

    April 7, 2011

    http://www.ilw.com/immigrationdaily/digest/2011,0407.shtm

    ITEMS

    1. Comment: Immigration Absurdity - A video produced using

    animation technology

    http://www.xtranormal.com/watch/11570686/discussing-perm-with-a-client

    illustrates the absurdity of the labor certification process. In

    the video, animated characters representing the immigration

    counsel and the HR representative at the sponsoring corporation

    discuss putting together a PERM case. Unfortunately, the alien in

    question is an Indian national, and due to the long quota waits,

    all those involved find themselves in an impossible Alice-in-

    Wonderland world. While decade long waits in the family area do

    not change familial relationships, employer-employee

    relationships are naturally less binding over such excessively

    drawn out time periods. With Congress still missing in action on

    the issue, we can but view this as a work of humor, since to view

    it as what it is - an accurate depiction of reality - is quite

    depressing. (The original video was brought to our attention by

    Sylvia Boecker.)
