Greg Siskind on Immigration Law and Policy

ROMNEY HIRES HAZLETON DEFENDER TO BE ADVISOR ON IMMIGRATION

Rate this Entry

Just to put an exclamation point on the differences between himself and John McCain on immigration, Mitt Romney has brought on one of the leading anti-immigrant lawyers in the country to advise his campaign on immigration issues. Kris Kobach defended the city of Hazleton, Pennsylvania in their losing effort to prevent the city's harsh anti-immigration ordinance from being thrown out of court. And he is widely considered a leader in the national anti-immigration movement.

    I dont know why I am bothering commenting on your blog but Kris Kobach is in fact for LEGAL immagration. Get your facts straight.

    Heidi - I'm very aware of what I wrote. But it's sham to say that the folks pushing these bills are only against illegal immigration. These bills have the effect of driving out legal immigrants from communities and if you look at the organizations pushing these measures - FAIR, NumbersUSA, Center for Immigration Studies, etc., they oppose all immigration and not just illegal immigration. Look at Arizona today. The people fleeing that state are not just illegal immigrants. Legal immigrants are leaving as well because of the hostile environment.

    I turned down an offer of employment in Phoenix, AZ for the same reason. I told the hiring manager in no uncertain terms that AZ is not an immigrant friendly state.

    My husband was considering applying for a teaching position in Michigan but he gave up. We're not going to some place where we can't even drive legally.

    I decided against interviewing with a company located in CO because the state is not immigrant-friendly. Combine that with my love of skiing, and you get the picture.

    Romney & Huckabee, the last of the losers pandering to the antis are likely to be gone tomorrow. Our choices are going to boil down to McCain, Clinton or Obama. They are all great on immigration issues, however, my hope is that Clinton or Obama will win in the fall because the country can ill afford to continue the failed policies pursued by the Pubs.

    I am working here in Colorado and I do not have any problem with the State? What do you mean when you say Colorado is not immigrant-friendly? Not because Tom Tancredo is here doesn't mean the whole state is like him.

    Obama/Kennedy is the worst the thing worst thing that can happen to legal employment based immigration. Both of these men are controlled by left wing nut jobs and union people. These guys hate businesses and who run them. They are very good for illegal immigrants. It was disgusting to listen to Kennedy talking in spanish in California.

    As much as I like McCain, I dont want another pub in whitehouse.

    I think Hillary is best for country and immigrants.

    Well hopefully McCain will get closer to locking down the nomination tomorrow and this will not be maningfull at all past tomorrow. But I agree with most people here Clinton or Obama will be better news for fixing the broken system and for all Immigrants.

    Yeah Heidi why do you bother????

    A - Obama (and Kennedy) have an overall positive record on dealing with employer immigration. The McCain-Kennedy immigration bill of 2006 was one of the best immigration bills in years for business and employment immigration - STEM Act, large increases in numbers for skilled immigrants, largely reducing impact of per country quotas. Obama has been fine on these issues as well. Check their ratings at NumbersUSA on business and employment cases and you'll see.

    Agreed, CIR of 2006 was the best product that ever happened for immigrants whether EB or otherwise. CIR 2007 is the worst thing that could ever happened to EB immigrants. I can only imagine what Kennedys, Durbins , Obamas will do to EB immigration thinking that EB immigrants represent businesses. Hope Dems dont get fillibuster proof majority in the Senate.

    I promise you Kennedy and Obama were not behind the provisions you disliked in the 2007 CIR. The point system was brought to us by Senators Sessions and Kyl. The H-1B fees (which almost every Senator voted for probably assuming the problem would be fixed later, was pushed by Senators Sanders and Durbin, not Obama or Kennedy.

    Do I sense an endorsement here? Greg Siskind for Obama, perhaps?

    OK. So, which candidate understands legal immigration issues ?
    Some times when written about issues related to legal immigrants , the senators reply back "We know there are 12 million undocumeted workers etc. etc" . Do they understand there is a category called legal immigrants ?

    Kalifonian, you are an example of a typical EB-tunnel vision, a view where EB immigrants are the only humans in the whole world. From a legislator or President's point of view, the big problems are the ones they need to be taken care of. It is what it is - and it always will be. They are not interested in in-depth understanding of the intricacies of the EB immigrnation, and, however unfortunate it sounds, it is a good thing. Legal immigration is exactly the kind of problems that is easy to fix or at least patch up, and if you remember, President Clinton signed H1B Increase/AC21 portability/H1 Extention beyond 6th year/recapture of EB visas in one big sweep in October 2000. Where would you be now if he have not done it, and who cares if he knows every detail of the EB system...

    "That is why these two prestigious national commissions have recommended reductions in the numbers."

    I am confused. Are you referring to FAIR as a prestigious national commission? They are a hate group.

    Henceforth, if anyone makes a reference to FAIR, without preceding it with "the hate group, FAIR" I intend to correct that person.
