  1. ARIZONA LAW FACES MAJOR TEST

    by , 06-08-2008 at 06:49 PM (Greg Siskind on Immigration Law and Policy)
    The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals will become the first federal appeals court to hear a challenge on a state immigration law when it hears arguments Thursday concerning the constitutionality of Arizona's tough employer sanctions law. Arizona mandates all employers use E-Verify and can suspend the business licenses of employers found to have knowingly hired illegally present immigrants. Nearly two dozen states now have immigration laws and the Ninth Circuit case could have a major impact on whether these laws will survive.
  2. IMMIGRANT OF THE DAY: HUDA ZOGHBI - SCIENTIST

    by , 06-08-2008 at 06:33 PM (Greg Siskind on Immigration Law and Policy)

    CBS' 60 Minutes had a fascinating story tonight on the Howard Hughes Medical Institute which quietly funds the research of 300 outstanding scientists in the US. In the story, one of the scientists interviewed about the work of HHMI is Lebanese-born Dr. Huda Zoghbi at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston. Zoghbi has conducted cutting edge research on the genetic causes of neurological disorders. HHMI describes her work:In the nervous system, even small genetic
    blunders can have huge biological consequences. Mistakes in key genes
    can cripple our ability to move, speak, and interact with the world.
    Using some of the most advanced techniques in genetics and cell
    biology, Huda Zoghbi and her collaborators have unraveled the genetic
    underpinnings of a number of devastating neurological disorders,
    including Rett syndrome and spinocerebellar ataxia type 1. Their
    discoveries could lead to better methods for treating such diseases and
    provide new ways of thinking about more common neurological disorders,
    including autism, mental retardation, and Parkinson's disease.You can watch the 60 Minutes segment here.

  3. BECAUSE WE LIKE EXPENSIVE FOOD

    by , 06-07-2008 at 06:19 PM (Greg Siskind on Immigration Law and Policy)
    Goes nicely with our expensive gas and our depreciating homes. Thanks Congress. "Enforcement first" really is delivering dividend for the economy. As I love to tell folks, if you like depending on imported oil, you're going to love imported food even more.
  4. ANOTHER VALEDICTORIAN TOLD TO SHIP OUT

    by , 06-06-2008 at 08:58 PM (Greg Siskind on Immigration Law and Policy)
    Well, isn't America really better off? These people are just lazy and just want our welfare, right? This kid is a lawbreaker and who really cares if he came to the US at age two and doesn't even know the language of his native Armenia.

    Sadly, these are just the arguments you'll hear the antis make. I'm sure I'll see a few of this nature in the comments. Seriously, isn't it time to pass the DREAM Act?
  5. The tortise continues down the path

    Our legislation, HR 5924, continues to gain support.  We're up to ten co-sponsors who have signed onto Rep. Wexler's bill:

    Rep Sensenbrenner, F. James, Jr. [WI-5] - 4/29/2008
    Rep McCarthy, Carolyn [NY-4] - 5/14/2008
    Rep Putnam, Adam H. [FL-12] - 5/14/2008
    Rep Cohen, Steve [TN-9] - 5/22/2008
    Rep Pastor, Ed [AZ-4] - 5/22/2008
    Rep Andrews, Robert E. [NJ-1] - 6/3/2008
    Rep Davis, Danny K. [IL-7] - 6/3/2008
    Rep Johnson, Eddie Bernice [TX-30] - 6/3/2008
    Rep Jackson-Lee, Sheila [TX-18] - 6/3/2008
    Rep Wasserman Schultz, Debbie [FL-20] - 6/4/2008

    Our efforts on Wednesday and Thursday should lead to additional co-sponsors in the next few days and weeks.

    The most notable piece of news - beyond the momentum that we're gathering with co-sponsors - is that on Thursday June 12, the subcommittee on immigration, citizenship, refugees, border security, and international law will have a formal hearing on our bill.  We are working with the Congressional staffers to identify the appropriate witnesses to speak on this urgent issue.
