Greg Siskind on Immigration Law and Policy

NYT EDITORIAL SLAMS USCIS OVER VISA BULLETIN SCANDAL

Rate this Entry

This certainly will increase the pressure on USCIS. My fear when this whole scandal broke a few days ago was that the media would find the story too complicated to cover. But the New York Times, which usually has the best immigration coverage of any major news outlet in the US, has taken this story on and today raised the bar by devoting its lead editorial to the subject.



The Times calls USCIS' action a "bait and switch" and a "hoax." The final quote of the editorial makes it clear just how disgusted the newspaper is with USCIS' action:

The collapse of immigration reform in the Senate showed the world what
America thinks of illegal immigrants -- it wants them all to go away.
But the federal government, through bureaucratic malpractice, is
sending the same message to millions of legal immigrants, too.

    Greg,

    My wife is a nurse and started working at the end of October last year, just when retrogression hit Schedule A. We were going to apply July 2 for permanent residency, but of course everybody knows what happened with that. As of now, nurses are lumped into EB-3, which will likely stay heavily retrogressed and keep out nurses from the Phillipines, India and China for quite some time. Do you have any idea when bridge legislation may be passed by congress to create a special category so that schedule A can come out of retrogression again? Seems like Nurses and PT's have been a forgotten bunch with all the arguing going on about CIR, but the shortage is definitely not going away but is becoming more acute. See this story below from MSNBC about the shortage. BTW, I think it only works with Internet Explorer, as this is a Microsoft controlled website.
