  1. TRAVEL INDUSTRY PUSHES TO GET INTERNATIONAL TOURIST ISSUES IN TO PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN

    by , 01-10-2008 at 09:16 PM (Greg Siskind on Immigration Law and Policy)
    Let's hope they're successful in their new campaign. The TIA also released findings of a poll of voters in the upcoming primary states of South Carolina and Florida. From the Travel Industry Association:"We've hit a tipping point," said Roger Dow, President and CEO of the TIA. 
    "Voters believe that government can do far more to improve the travel system and
    they are looking for a candidate who realizes that they too have a schedule to
    keep."

    The first stop on the "Change the Debate" campaign is South
    Carolina where billboards are running in Myrtle Beach and Columbia and travel
    industry leaders are on the ground for tonight's Republican debate to discuss
    the critical contribution travel makes to the U.S. economy.  Looking ahead, TIA
    will be working with more than 400 convention and visitor bureaus across the
    country to highlight an American travel system that is in crisis and in need of
    national leadership. 

    "Outdated tracking systems, delays and congestion
    combined with a 17 percent decline in overseas visitation to the United States
    since 9/11 have taken their toll on the American traveler, the economy and the
    U.S. image abroad," Dow said. "We're taking our campaign on the road to make
    sure the candidates know that improving the travel process is both good policy
    and good politics."
  2. WILL MCCAIN IMMIGRATION VIEWS HELP HIM WIN FLORIDA?

    by , 01-10-2008 at 08:52 PM (Greg Siskind on Immigration Law and Policy)
    Rudy Guiliani is banking everything on winning Florida. He's hoping all the ex-New Yorkers living in the Sunshine State will deliver him a win that will help get him back to the top of the heap.

    But is Florida the state that will instead seal the deal for McCain? There's one place in America where being pro-immigration plays VERY
    well with Republican voters. And that's my home town of Miami, Florida
    where the anti-Castro Cuban community members have been reliable
    supporters of the GOP for decades. McCain's support for comprehensive immigration reform will help more than hurt with many Republicans in Florida. And those New Yorkers in South Florida are mostly Democrats (remember
    why Al Gore wanted each and every vote in South Florida to be counted?) so Guiliani may be on shaky ground if that's what he's hoping will save his campaign.

    Of course, the further north you go in Florida, the more Southern it gets and Governor Huckabee will likely find support. And in the northern and central parts of Florida, the anti-immigration rhetoric will play better. 

    And speaking of South Florida, Miami Herald columnist Andres Oppenheim has the same take on the meaning of the New Hampshire primary as I mentioned the other day. And the Daily Kos, the liberal blog, also has a similar view.
  3. "THE SINGLE MOST DESTRUCTIVE ECONOMIC DISASTER SINCE THE DUST BOWL"

    by , 01-10-2008 at 07:41 PM (Greg Siskind on Immigration Law and Policy)
    House bill 1804, Oklahoma's tough new anti-immigration law, is having the intended effect of driving immigrants from the state. But a lot of folks are concerned about its unintended effects on the Oklahoma economy.
  4. NEBRASKA LEGISLATOR TARGETS TAX BREAKS FOR BUSINESSES HIRING UNAUTHORIZED IMMIGRANTS

    by , 01-10-2008 at 07:24 PM (Greg Siskind on Immigration Law and Policy)
    This is sure to be a boon to Nebraska's efforts to lure new employers through tax breaks.
  5. IMMIGRANT OF THE DAY: SIR HOWARD STRINGER - SONY CEO

    by , 01-10-2008 at 11:26 AM (Greg Siskind on Immigration Law and Policy)

    I'm just back from Las Vegas and the Consumer Electronics Show (took the red eye flight which lived up to its name and has left me very tired). In honor of CES, I am including Welsh-born Sir Howard Stringer as our immigrant of the day. Sir Howard has been an American citizen since the mid-80s and has the distinction of being the first non-Japanese CEO of a Japanese electronics company. In this case, it's Sony corporation, one of the planet's most important entertainment and electronics firms. Prior to heading up Sony, Sir Howard headed the CBS television network. Oh yeah, this Oxford University grad was knighted by Queen Elizabeth in 1999 - not too shabby.

    Sony's booth at CES was, as always, a big hit with attendees. When I stopped by magician/comedians Penn and Teller were entertaining the crowd. The new VAIO TZ laptop is AWESOME (it should be at $3500) and I'm definitely getting one just as soon as I can justify replacing my current VAIO to my law partners.
