Greg Siskind on Immigration Law and Policy

NY Times: Congress Moving Forward With Smaller Measures

Rate this Entry

Regular readers of this blog know that I tend to be a pragmatist on immigration reform and that while a comprehensive solution is ideal, politically it is just not possible. Looks like Republicans and Democrats are starting to understand that accepting lesser change is better than more deadlock.

    I agree with you Greg, but it is also truth that republicans and Democrats can't agree on anything these days making passing anything meaningful specially on Immigration impossible. I think both sides will continue to play political football with Immigration.

    "In Arizona, they think if they keep lowering their business taxes it will attract business, but its not true," James said. "It's that they don't have the infrastructure here to support the global businesses they want to attract."

    Wrong! In Arizona they are so bigoted against anyone who they suspect of being an illegal immigrant that the global businesses from countries such as Singapore and Japan will not relocate there and the employer sanctions upheld by the SC will not help either!

    You may be sounding off your own horn there, as far as immigration is concerned the evidence points at the fact that they are not really helping anyone!!! Regardless of their status... As it's always been pointed out in this blog, at least you are legal and in line. Others do not even have that....I know is not a walk in the park clearly from the example of NW but it is something.

    Mosf of the Democrats just care for one kind of immigration, that comes from south of the USA border.

    Most of the republicans dont care for any immigration.

    Actually Obama has been working with a group of Tech executives that is solely focusing on skilled immigration and the job creation potential that this would brings. Now off course he does have the other constituency to work out also, it seems that both groups are tied to each other as far as he is concern. But as I said before at least you are in line.... read up on the blog the many discussions we have had on the Legal v. Illegal man all has been said here on this topic.

    "Tata Consultancy Services announced plans to hire 60,000 people this year, some of which will be based in Midland, Michigan, at the Dow Business Services Center, a partnership between Tata and Dow Chemical set to open next month. The center will create up to 1,250 jobs in financial, logistical, information technology and environmental services. Tata plans to use the center to expand its services to other companies in mid-Michigan as well by hiring about 100 people."

    How dare these unemployed Americans steal Indian jobs which should go only to Indians!!! How dare do Indian companies outsource to low wage Americans?

    George, I don't think you understand the politics behind TCS's hiring spree in the US. For years, they've made absolutely no effort to hire American workers even for on-site work. Faced with political backlash over their hiring practices, they are trying to change their public image as job stealers by hiring in the US. Have to give credit even to the devil where it's due - without Durbin-Grassley's crusade against them, this would not have happened. My only gripe with them (DG) is that they've even targeted workers who graduated from US universities and work for respectable American companies in their crusade.
