  1. BREAKING NEWS: ILLEGALLY PRESENT WORKERS CLEANING THE CHERTOFF HOUSE

    by , 12-11-2008 at 04:36 AM (Greg Siskind on Immigration Law and Policy)
    Unbelievable! Turns out the firm contracted to clean the Secretary of Homeland Security's Home was hiring workers unauthorized to be in the US.
  2. IMMIGRANT OF THE DAY: FRANK OZ - DIRECTOR AND PUPPETEER

    by , 12-10-2008 at 09:32 PM (Greg Siskind on Immigration Law and Policy)

    I was one of the original Sesame Street kids, those children born in the 60s who were the first audience members of the show that revolutionized children's television. Early on in my career I had the opportunity to work on the green card petition of a puppeteer involved in creating characters for Sesame Street productions around the world. Getting a behind the scenes tour of the workshop was one of the cooler experiences I've had in my work. Now that I have kids, I've enjoyed watching them get the same enjoyment from the show and as a family, we're definitely muppets fans. One of the early talents who worked with the late Jim Henson is British-born Frank Oz, the voice of characters like Miss Piggy, Fozzy Bear, Grover, Cookie Monster and Bert. Oz also was the voice of Yoda in the Star Wars movies. And he has also developed a great reputation as a director of live action movies such as Dirty Rotten Scoundrels and The Stepford Wives.

  3. Jan VB Out - No Change



    The January Visa Bulletin has just been released and there is no change in the processing of the major categories. With EB3 processing at nearly four years for most countries, and over EIGHT years for Indian nationals, the time has never been greater for Schedule A relief.
    EB1 - all current
    EB2 - all current, except India (July 1, 2003); China (July 4, 2008)
    EB3 - all May 1, 2005, except India (Oct 15, 2001); China (June 1, 2002); Mexico (Nov 15, 2002)

  4. PRIVACY GROUP SLAMS NPR OVER E-VERIFY UNDERWRITING

    by , 12-09-2008 at 09:58 PM (Greg Siskind on Immigration Law and Policy)
    I must confess that my mouth dropped open in shock the first time I heard the phrase ""Support for NPR comes from NPR stations, and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), offering E-Verify, confirming the legal working of new hires. At DHS dot gov slash E-Verify."NPR has been on the defensive ever since arguing that the underwriting money has no bearing on the media organization's journalism. The Electronic Privacy Information Center is taking NPR to task because FCC rules state that public broadcasters like NPR may include "...slogans which identify and do not promote". EPIC claims NPR has crossed the line with the E-Verify language.
  5. IMMIGRATION ISSUES RELATED TO LAYOFFS AND CORPORATE DOWNSIZING

    by , 12-09-2008 at 09:48 PM (Greg Siskind on Immigration Law and Policy)
    I wish this article wasn't so necessary right now. The Vermont Service Center provided a couple of tips on layoff situations and I've incorporated that info in to my FAQ.
