USCIS BACKS DOWN IN AHMAD CASE

Michael Maggio, the pre-eminent immigration who recently passed away, would really be proud of the work done by his firm's lawyer Thomas Ragland. And congratulations are also due to Washington Post reporter Karen DeYoung who reported on the outrageous decision in the case of Sam Ahmad and publicly shamed USCIS. USCIS not only backed down on the denial of Sam Ahmad's case, but they announced a much broader shift in policy. Here's what the Post had to say:


The U.S. immigration service said yesterday that it will temporarily
stop denying green cards to refugees and other legal immigrants tied to
groups that sought to topple foreign dictatorships, placing their cases
on hold while it determines more "logical, common-sense" rules for
judging them.



The decision will potentially affect thousands of pending
applications for permanent U.S. residence. The cases of hundreds of
others who have been denied green cards since December will also be
reexamined, said Jonathan "Jock" Scharfen, deputy director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services. All the applicants are living in this country under refugee or other visa provisions or political asylum.

Nice to see USCIS finally start to show that they can quickly address a pressing problem rather than have to be hauled in front of a congressional committee or sued.
