Apr 7 - Immigration Absurdity

Rating: 2 votes, 1.00 average.

-----------------IMMIGRATION DAILY FROM ILW.COM------------------

April 7, 2011,0407.shtm


1. Comment: Immigration Absurdity - A video produced using

animation technology

illustrates the absurdity of the labor certification process. In

the video, animated characters representing the immigration

counsel and the HR representative at the sponsoring corporation

discuss putting together a PERM case. Unfortunately, the alien in

question is an Indian national, and due to the long quota waits,

all those involved find themselves in an impossible Alice-in-

Wonderland world. While decade long waits in the family area do

not change familial relationships, employer-employee

relationships are naturally less binding over such excessively

drawn out time periods. With Congress still missing in action on

the issue, we can but view this as a work of humor, since to view

it as what it is - an accurate depiction of reality - is quite

depressing. (The original video was brought to our attention by

Sylvia Boecker.)

8. Focus: Immigration Practice By Robert C. Divine

Immigration Practice by Robert C. Divine & R. Blake Chisam is an

invaluable supplement to Kurzban's with a

different approach. It is also useful to newer practitioners and

paralegals in view of its easy to understand and practical style.
