  1. Mark-up Postponed

    Today's scheduled mark-up of HR 5294 and other immigration bills was postponed, at least until Friday, and perhaps until next week. Action should happen at that time, as the postponement appears to be procedural and not substantive. The committee was unable to secure a quorum at 5PM. The hearings had been previously pushed back from earlier in the day.
  2. GOP POLITICIANS TIED TO ILLEGALLY PRESENT IMMIGRANTS

    by , 09-10-2008 at 02:12 PM (Greg Siskind on Immigration Law and Policy)
    Many politicians have had to face scrutiny over the years when it was learned they hired illegally present immigrants. But it's unusual for two of these controversies to arise on the same day.

    GOP Senator Gorton Smith of Oregon (who is running for reelection in a tough race in November), has been accused by a Willamette, Oregon newspaper of employing illegally present immigrants in his family-owned frozen food company.

    Arnold Schwarzenegger, the Governor of California, admitted that he has not checked the immigration status of people who have worked at his home. Schwarzenegger's own immigration history is mysterious and there is a strong possibility he was himself illegally present in the US during his early years in this country.
  3. HOUSE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE MOVING IMMIGRATION BILLS

    by , 09-10-2008 at 01:49 PM (Greg Siskind on Immigration Law and Policy)
    [Update] My report below is not correct. The initial report I received on the markup was not correct and the markup process was not competed today. I believe work is going to continue tomorrow or Friday and hopefully this will be done by the weekend. Apologies.]



    The House Judiciary Committee today marked up and sent to the House floor four important immigration bills. They are

    H.R. 6020 - provides immigration benefits for immigrant soldiers and their families

    H.R. 5882 - recaptures employment-based and family-sponsored immigrant visas lost when USCIS failed to adjudicate enough petitions in a given year

    H.R. 5924 - allocates 20,000 employment-based visas per year for three years for nurses

    HR 5950 - provides for basic medical care for immigrant detainees

    Earlier today, I said these bills were being marked up in the Immigration Subcommittee. That happened earlier this summer. Apologies if I caused any confusion.
  4. Rumor: October Visa Bulletin

    The US Consulate at Mumbai has released the Visa Bulletin for October 2008. It remains to be seen if this is the official Visa Bulletin since, at the time of this posting, there is no official posting on the Department of State's website.

    The key dates as listed on the Mumbai site are:

    EB2: Current, except India (April 1, 2003), China (?), Mexico (?)
    EB3: Most countries (Jan 1, 2005); India (July 1, 2001); China (?); Mexico (?)
  5. IS IT FAIR TO HATE?

    by , 09-10-2008 at 11:14 AM (Greg Siskind on Immigration Law and Policy)
    Pro-Immigration advocacy group America's Voice has a new video reminding people that FAIR - the Federation for American Immigration Reform - has been deemed a hate group.
