  1. Update: #DREAM9 Protesting Obama Administration’s Deportation Record

    by , 07-24-2013 at 09:08 AM (Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal)
    The New York Times is now covering the story.

    From Julia Preston’s article:

    “The protest was a tactical escalation by some young immigrants, who call themselves Dreamers, to draw attention to what they said were inconsistencies by the administration, which has continued a fast pace of deportations even while President Obama is pressing Congress to pass legislation that would offer a path to citizenship to unauthorized immigrants.”

    Friend and immigration reform activist Prerna P. Lal summed it up nicely: "The activists are not protesting the KIDS Act or advocating for CIR. They are protesting the 1.7 million deportations under Obama and requesting that everyone should be brought back home. Because they deserve to be home."

    Mohammed Abdollahi, fighting at the tip of the spear as leader of the National Immigrant Youth Alliance, astutely observed that there is no justifiable reason for the administration to detain these kids. He explained that “They’re not high priority, they’re not a flight risk, in fact they’re actually fighting to stay in the country.”

    ...and he is correct.

    I’ll keep you posted as more information becomes available.

    The FBSPT has recently published the 2014 National Physical Therapy Exam (NPTE) test dates.
    MU Law reminds readers to schedule their 2014 Physical Therapy NPTE exams.

    Keep in mind that the FSBPT uses a fixed-date testing process. The FSBPT approach is different than other healthcare occupation's examination processes, which allows for rolling testing dates. FSBPT believes that their fixed-date testing system provides the most secure exam for their industry.

    Be sure to register well in advance in order to insure that your seat is reserved.

    Test Date
    Registration Payment Deadline

  3. OSC Publishes New Charge Form; by Bruce Buchanan, Siskind Susser

    The Office of Special Counsel (OSC) for Immigration-Related Unfair Employment Practices, which is within the Departmentof Justice, has published a new charge form with a revision date of April 15, 2013 (although it was not introduced until recently). It is five pages (with a sixth page providing a Paperwork Reduction Act notice, thereby creating more paper). One must file by mail or e-mail the charge form within 180 days of the alleged date of discrimination. As this blog has discussed, the OSC has become much more aggressive against employers engaging in citizenship status discrimination, national origin discrimination (for those employers with four to 14 employees), document abuse and retaliation.

    by , 07-23-2013 at 10:34 PM (Greg Siskind on Immigration Law and Policy)
    Lots of people have mentioned the discharge petition as a possible way to bypass the "Hastert Rule" and force a vote on the Senate's immigration bill. But to date it's been just the pundits talking about it. Now Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is saying the Democrats may push a discharge petition if the House can't get its act together and pass adequate legislation.
  5. Homeland Security IG Investigates USCIS Director by Boyd Campbell

    USCIS Director Alejandro Mayorkas, President Obama's nominee to be deputy secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, is under investigation by the DHS Inspector General for allegedly helping a Chinese investor get an EB-5 immigrant investor visa after the investor's petition was denied and his appeal rejected.

    According to the Associated Press, the matter came to light based upon information obtained from an FBI analyst in the counter-intelligence unit in Washington, D.C.

    According to an email message sent by the IG, the complaint against Mayorkas is that he helped Anthony Rodham, the brother of former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and the owner of a regional center named Gulf Coast Funds Management, L.L.C., of McLean, Va., to get approval for the Chinese investor's visa after the visa petition was denied and the investor's appeal was rejected.
