The Office of Citizenship and Immigration Services Ombudsman has launched a pilot program to assist people in resolving case problems with USCIS for individuals have have failed to get results from the USCIS Customer Service system.


The Ombudsman's office has been making a lot of progress of late in expanding its capabilities and I'm glad to hear about this initiative.

    Would cis ombudsman be able to take on NVC? One thing that ombudsman requires is to make sure to get more transparency with respect to demand data for family based petitions as the cutoff date currently seems to be only visible to DoS.

    "The problem right now is not on the Democratic side....Everybody for some reason is letting the Republican Party off the hook on this issue, either by hoping that I can take a unilateral action or that somehow Democrats can change the way Congress works," Obama said during a roundtable Monday with journalists for American Spanish-language newspapers. "The fact is, is if Latinos all across the country said, 'Until the Republican Party is willing to cooperate on bipartisan, comprehensive immigration reform, we can't support the Republican Party," I promise you that's something that would get the attention of the Republican Party."

    Obama seems to have forgotten
    1. He promised that he will take up immigration in first 100 days
    2. In first 2yrs he had complete control of both houses but did not move immigration. At that time he remarked that there was no appetite for immigration
    3. It is silly for him to ask all Hispanics to put pressure on Republicans, since they did not make any promise. Also Hispanics are not all pro immigration , Cubans for example.

    It is OK if Obama does not want to pass immigration reform. Undocumented who can survive under tough enforcement will, those who cannot will leave.

    It seems Obama wants to blame everyone except himself because it is now becoming increasingly clear immigration reform is not part of is strategy.

    From gg's Politico link:

    Obama whines about anti-enforcements "hoping that I can take a unilateral action" (the implication being that he is not permitted to).

    "'So much time has been spent trying to see if we can do something administrative,' Obama complained."

    US apologises for diplomat's 'dirty' Indians comment but things spiral out of control

    The comments made by Maureen Chao, a Vice Consul in the US Consulate in Chennai, about Tamils met with mixed reactions from pro-Tamil groups and members of the public on Saturday.

    While there was consensus that the diplomat's comments were extremely inappropriate, opinion was divided over whether they may have actually been racist.

    Senior officials of the SRM University, where Chao made the remarks in question on Friday, brushed aside the possible racist nature of Chao's words. "We have watched the tape of her speech several times. What she meant to say has been misunderstood. The confusion has risen because some have linked the word 'dirty' with her mention of Tamilians. She was infact talking about her own skin," said SRM University Provost M Ponnavaiko.

    "How does it affect us if she calls us 'black'?" he asked. "It is the natural colour of the Tamil people. Do we not call Africans black and westerners white? What is wrong with that?" Ponnavaiko asked.

    Political groups and social organisations were less generous and criticised Chao's remarks. "This is only proof that the US administration and its representatives carry a rotten outlook towards India and Indians. The Vice Consul's comments amount to outright racial bias. The comments have to be condemned and she has to be chastised," said CPM state secretary G Ramakrishnan. He added that the matter may not warrant recall of the diplomat.

    The MDMK, which is staunchly pro-Tamil, too tread a fine line. "She has to come forward and explain what she meant when she said those things. It is up to the US Consulate and the diplomat in question to clear the air over the matter," said MDMK spokesperson G Nanmaran.

    There were even voices that call for the strictest action against Chao. "Action should be taken against her according to the strictest of US laws on racism. How can the US claim to stand against the abuse of Tamils if it's representatives go around making statements like this," said Thirumurugan of the My 17 Movement

    "For those states, Obama would have to depend on a large Latino turnout."

    http://www.latimes.com/news/politics/la-pn-inside-gallup-20110815,0,2201869.story?track=rss


    Key for Obama is Latino population. Lets see what he promises them this time. Reid didn't deliver on his promise of immigration but he was re-elected (thanks to Latino turnout). It just goes to show why Obama doesn't include immigration in his winning strategy. Regardless of surveys, when it comes to voting in elections, do Latinos really care about false promises (and delivery on those promises) on immigration?

    If Perry/Romney can throw out some false promises on immigration, can they win these states in play?
