  1. OBAMA: DOBBS, LIMBAUGH CAUSING RISE IN HATE CRIMES

    by , 05-23-2008 at 06:44 PM (Greg Siskind on Immigration Law and Policy)
    Cause. Effect.
  2. CATO'S E-VERIFY DEBATE WITH DHS ENTERS ROUND 2

    by , 05-23-2008 at 10:21 AM (Greg Siskind on Immigration Law and Policy)
    This is getting good. The Department of Homeland Security issued another defense of E-Verify saying that the system has the capacity to handle a massive increase in the number of employers. The Cato Institute's Jim Harper pokes holes in the argument noting that it's not the technical capacity to handle the data that's the problem, but the massive manpower and money that will be required to resolve errors. That should be the really scary part of E-Verify for most Americans. If you're unfortunate enough to be incorrectly identified as not legally present in the US, are you really confident that you won't be rendered unemployable for an extended period of time while the folks at DHS and the Social Security Administration solve the problem. I just have one thing to say - "We're from the goverment and we're here to help."
  3. HR 5924 Gaining Momentum

    As you may be aware, all immigration provisions were stripped from this week's War Appropriations bill. There were several reasons that the immigration provisions were stripped, including germaneness, interest in adding some family immigration provisions, and Congress' desire to quickly move on the Appropriations bill before Memorial Day. That bill may ultimately be vetoed by President Bush, in which case there may be a small chance of reattaching some immigration provisions to a reconstituted Appropriations bill.

    HR 5924 is gaining a lot of steam. We're up to five named co-sponsors and HLG knows of two more House members who will co-sponsor but it hasn't been made public yet. The named co-sponsors are:

    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

    This is very good progress considering that the bill has only been public for a month. Several other Representatives have said that they will support the bill, but they will not formally co-sponsor.

    The most important thing that we can do at this point is to increase the number of co-sponsors. HLG and the CTIHS have been to Washington DC twice in the last two weeks to walk the halls of Congress and inform Congressional staffers about the issue. We are continuing to actively seek more members to the CTIHS in order to raise our profile. If you are interested, please contact Chris Musillo.
  4. USCIS CLARIFIES E-VERIFY OPT QUESTION FOR STUDENT VISA HOLDERS

    by , 05-22-2008 at 09:12 PM (Greg Siskind on Immigration Law and Policy)
    One question that was not answered last month when USCIS released a rule allowing for 17 month work authorization extensions for certain STEM professionals was whether E-Verify must be deployed system-wide by a company or not in order to qualify for the extension. USCIS' Katherine Lotspeich, Acting Chief of USCIS' Verification Division, has told folks at the American Immigration Lawyers Association that the employer must register E-Verify for at least the worksite location where the immigrant will be working. 
  5. IMMIGRANT OF THE DAY: JORN OLSEN - EPIDEMIOLOGIST

    by , 05-22-2008 at 08:57 PM (Greg Siskind on Immigration Law and Policy)

    If there wasn't enough bad news lately, we're now hearing that there's a link between cell phones used by pregnant women and behavioral problem in children. Even the researcher who found the link - Danish-born Jorn Olsen - is not sure if there is any causal link. But the research is interesting and could be important as we try and understand the long term health implications of this relatively new technology.
    is chair of epidemiology at the University of California Los Angeles School of Public Health.
