Greg Siskind on Immigration Law and Policy

FINDING A WAY TO "YES"

Rate this Entry

Fraud prevention has been the rallying call of protectionists who have called for clamping down so hard on granting immigration benefits that virtually no one will want to bother applying (assuming they could jump through all of the hoops placed in front of them). Despite lacking real evidence that fraud is a serious problem in our employment-based immigration system, the antis keep banging this drum. And it's killing our economy. In the 1930s, protectionists thought they were saving jobs for Americans when they imposed trade barriers that kept out foreign goods.


Today's protectionists are focusing on immigrant workers. But rather than being honest and admitting that protectionism is their true goal, they play the fraud card. The latest example is Senator Charles Grassley, the Iowa big government Republican who believes USCIS needs to be interjecting itself in to every hiring decision American employers decide to make. 


My friend David Leopold, the president of the American Immigration Lawyers Association, calls Grassley out on his latest antics designed to score political points at the expense of American jobs. When more and more companies choose to ship jobs overseas, it's often because of the kind of nonsense Grassley peddles. Of course, this is the same demagogue of a politician who helped introduce America to the concept of "death panels" last year. So maybe this is not so surprising.

    And let us not forget, he is the first one wanting to cut social security benefits, because the revenues go down due to the jobs being shipped overseas. Charles "the ***" Grassley, Dick "the dumb" Durbin and Bernie "the Braindead" Sanders all responsible for the jobless recovery!

    The problem is that you have folks like this on both parties, and is one of the few occasions that you see working across party lines to kill any immigration efforts, isn't bi-partisan a thing of beauty!!

    David "everybody on both sides of this issue is in favor of rigorous enforcement of the law" Leopold refers to the memo as "ways in which USCIS could apply the dysfunctional immigration law in a functional way".

    Translation:

    "dysfuctional immigration law" =

    limits, i.e., preventing even a single person from coming legally & a policy of enforcing those limits


    applying in a "functional way" =

    a policy of deferral or non-enforcement or, better yet, conferring permanent legal status administratively

    Jack, the law is dysfunctional and you know it. You can't enforce dysfuctional laws - it will cost you too much. You of course is not concerned about the cost or living in the police state, and we know it.
