The Supreme Court has refused to hear a case challenging a California law granting in state tuition rates to illegally present immigrants who otherwise meet residency requirements. The challenge to the law was led by Kris Kobach, the drafter of many anti-immigrant bills around the country. While Congress has yet to pass the DREAM Act, states like California are passing bills that are providing other forms of relief. Resident tuition access is one of the more common forms of assistance.
The Daily Mail has reported that elderly passengers aboard a P&O luxury cruise ship based out of the United Kingdom were subjected to a seven hour security check upon landing in Los Angeles, California. The passengers had both hands fingerprinted, they were required to submit to retina scans, had detailed passport examinations, and were subjected to overzealous interrogation.
The passengers were forced to stand in high temperatures for hours with no food or water, and were refused access to toilets. When asking to use the facilities, immigration officials allegedly responded: "Do it over the side, we won't mind." Prolonged exposure to the severe temperatures caused some of the passengers to pass out.
Elderly passengers report that the measures were taken by "spiteful immigration officials" in retaliation for comments made about the overzealous tactics employed. Ironically, the passengers had already cleared inspection at U.S. based ports without incident on 10 separate occasions prior to landing in California .
A 60-year-old retired dentist wrote to the Captain of the ship stating: "We are holiday makers, here to try and enjoy ourselves - we are not potential inmates of Guantalamo Bay, and should not be treated as such."
Keep up the good work fellas.

Reporters from Wall Street Journal and Bloomberg/Newsroom interviewed Mr. Brian Su, CEO of Artisan Business Group, Inc., a leader in Sino-US investment consultancy. Both media are planning to release EB-5 related reports in this coming week. Mr. Su addressed that EB-5 regional center program is America's best job creation initiative that allows foreign investors to invest in EB-5 projects across the country. Investors must conduct their own due diligence prior to making a commitment to a project. Currently most of EB-5 investors are from China, Korea, the U.K., Taiwan and Mexico.
