  1. SUNSTEIN TAPPED FOR REGULATORY CZAR

    by , 01-11-2009 at 09:47 PM (Greg Siskind on Immigration Law and Policy)
    This is not exactly immigration news, but I was really pleased to learn that Professor Cass Sunstein has been selected by President-Elect Obama to be the Administration's new regulatory chief. This is a newly created position and the title is administrator of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs
    within the Office of Management and Budget. The position has oversight over
    environmental, healthcare, and safety issues.I took several courses tought by Professor Sunstein when I was a law student at the University of Chicago two decades ago. After nearly a quarter century at the U of C, Professor Sunstein left for Harvard last year to be closer to his new bride, Pulitzer Prize winning Irish-American journalist Samantha Power (who is also on the Harvard faculty).Professor Sunstein was one of my favorite professors in law school and had a big influence on my career. I took his administrative law course and got hooked. While I initially thought environmental law was the career for me, early on at my first firm I discovered another administrative law field that was more to my liking - immigration law.  Another favorite professor - Judge Diane Wood - is frequently mentioned as a potential Supreme Court nominee. I hope I have occasion to write a blog post one day soon congratulating her on a major nomination.
  2. IMMIGRANT OF THE DAY: KATE WINSLET - ACTRESS

    by , 01-11-2009 at 08:29 PM (Greg Siskind on Immigration Law and Policy)

    At tonight's Golden Globe Awards, British-born Kate Winslet pulled off the impressive feat of winning two statues - one for best actress in a supporting role for The Reader and the other for best actress in a dramatic film for Revolutionary Road. The New York resident has been nominated previously for five Oscars and is a sure bet for a nomination this year.

  3. ESTA SYSTEM FOR FOREIGN VISITORS NOT READY TO GO

    by , 01-11-2009 at 12:34 PM (Greg Siskind on Immigration Law and Policy)
    Surprise, surprise. Another hastily released rule designed to stick it to the Obama team turns out not to be ready to roll. Britain's Telegraph newspaper reportsPassengers had been told they must have clearance to fly three days ahead of their journey to avoid being denied boarding. But
    The Daily Telegraph has learned the US authorities will not strictly
    enforce the new system - known as the Electronic System for Travel
    Authorisation or ESTA - when it begins on Monday.From Monday,
    the thousands of passengers who travel from Britain to the US every day
    should obtain authorisation from an American Government website in
    advance three days beforehand. So far more than 70,000 Britons have done so. But there are fears that some passengers - especially those who are not computer literate - will not have done so."There
    could be problems for people who don't fill out their ESTA forms and we
    want to avoid that situation," said a spokesman for the American
    Embassy in London. "We are trying to make sure that everybody gets on the plane. But people should fill out the form right now."For
    the next few weeks passengers will be allowed to board as before and be
    allowed to fill out the information on a green card provided by the
    airlines during the flight.Boy, that's smart. Implement this system - largely aimed at European Visa Waiver countries - in the middle of the period when all of the elderly retirees are off to Florida for their holidays in the sun. Is there a grown up around to explain to DHS that there are entire states in this country with economies that are collapsing because of dramatic declines in tourism over the last several months?
  4. IMMIGRANT OF THE DAY: JOSEFINA SCAGLIONE - ACTRESS

    by , 01-10-2009 at 11:36 AM (Greg Siskind on Immigration Law and Policy)

    Argentine actress Josefina Scaglione is currently performing the lead role of Maria in the Broadway-bound revival of the classic musical West Side Story. She was discovered on, of all places YouTube. Ms. Scaglione is hardly an amateur actress. She's just played a lead role in the Argentine production of Hairspray. The Wall Street Journal profiles her this weekend.

  5. EFFECTIVE DATE OF E-VERIFY FEDERAL CONTRACTOR RULE BEING PUSHED BACK

    by , 01-10-2009 at 09:19 AM (Greg Siskind on Immigration Law and Policy)
    The Bush Administration has announced that they are postponing the implementation date of the E-Verify mandate for federal contractors until February 20, 2009 after negotiations with various parties to a lawsuit challenging the new law. Here is the US Chamber's press release:
