IMMIGRATION SERVICE OUTSOURCES MANAGEMENT TO FOREIGN COMPANY

Rate this Entry

Lou Dobbs - Are you on this? USCIS has announced it's awarding a $39 million contract to a foreign company to provide high level management services - including managing the databases that are at the heart of the national security debate - to a FOREIGN company. Oh wait, its Nortel Networks and they're just Canadians. Not really that foreign, I guess.

    LOL.
    I wonder when we are starting to see a Lou Dobbs story on these weird Canadians ;-)
    Maybe he does a variant of Molson's famous "I am Canadian" commercial (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pXtVrDPhHBg)
    He should start it with "I am xenophobic" ;-)

    Off topic, but worth thinking about. From immigration-law.com

    "Under the circumstances, we urge the USCIS to issue an emergency memorandum temporarily waiving the rule requiring advance parole or receipt notices for the applicants who hold a "valid" nonimmigrant visa in the passport and suspending the rule on emergency basis that such trip will not be considered abandonment of the pending EB-485 applications in the event that the applicants have an evidence of exigent circumstances or humanitarian concerns."

    Doesn't this make perfect sense? The receipting is incredibly slow. Many July 2 filers still don't have them.

    They are finally hiring American workers - because they aren't able to bring in as many workers from India. I'm not complaining. I welcome Indian companies provided they hire from the American workforce. Almost all of the Indian IT firms discriminate against Americans so it is nice to see the change. They are even training students from 2-year colleges. What a concept!

    This is a repeat of the 80s with Japanese manufacturers. We welcomed them as long as they created American jobs.

    Ooops, I was referring to Wipro. This blog wasn't about Wipro.

    The company's HQ is in Canada. The company that won the bid is a subsidairy based in Virginia and employing locals right next to USCIS HQ. Talk about jumping to conclusions!

    Oh a2007, you obviously haven't been around this blog long enough to know my sense of humor. But if the company was owned by the Kuwaitis, do you think it would have gone unnoticed?

    I agree, if it were owned by a middle eastern country, there would be outrage. Being in the technology industry, I can't see why they did not select a US corp. We have enough capable companies here without crossing the border.

    a2007:
    Not too long ago, there was a huge outcry about security of US ports being handled by a foreign company, in particular by a company in the Middle East.
    This actually was the same thing: a subsidiary employing US personnel got the bid. Yet, the outcry from i**ots like Lou Dobbs was so bad that the contract was rescinded.
    That shows nicely the knee-jerk reaction from Dobbs and others like him.
    This one is exactly the same thing. Hence Greg has a very good point here.
