    Mr. Mehta's article entitled "Obama Administration Has Lost the Ability to Fully Control Immigration Enforcement" made me chuckle. The Administration fully enforced immigration law in a way that pleased the most hard core supporters of an attrition strategy and further did nothing other than "preserve the issue" (by not acting on it and warning of the dread reign of Tancredo and Rubio to come - turns out that even with massive Hispanic vote, Rubio hath come) when it had full control over both houses of Congress and leadership in each willing to "walk the plank" for whatever the White House set as a priority.
    I am a huge fan of a simpler system that allows vastly more legal immigration (millions of legal immigrants per year would be nice in my book) and some sort of serious penalty for illegal overstays and the like, even if they have been here for a long time, but I have to wonder if supposedly pro-immigration, even pro-'amnesty' activists wouldn't be rational to pine for our last President instead of so often doubling their bets on this one.
    Immigration reform was likely dead before this election, with the White House seemingly looking for a convenient villain upon which to transfer the blame.
    Both parties should look deep into their souls to work on a better system. If anything meaningful happens on the immigration front, I'll be pleasantly shocked.

    INA 244 f 4 - April 2009 request for feedback

    I am interested in whether anyone is still pursuing this line of inquiry/ clarification for TPS aliens filing or denied adjustment of status applications based on immediate relative petitions.

    I practice in Massachusetts and Rhode Island ( and many other states) and find that Boston CIS has approved such adjustments (with request for I-601 waiver) but RI is denying them. Very inconsistent interpretation of the regulations which leaves RI applicants at a distinct disadvantage. Two recent cases of mine both involved Honduran TPS applicants for A/S , married to US Citizens, that had been paroled in after temporary travel for emergent reasons.

    This question has persisted over the years based on INA 244 (f)(4). The 2010 internal draft memo from USCIS officers to Director Alejandro N. Mayorkas, on the topic of "Administrative Alternatives to Comprehensive Immigration Reform" , includes the option of allowing individuals in TPS status who had entered without inspection, to adjust or change status in the interest of promoting family unity. [This is also addressed in a Jan 14, 2010 Memorandum from Roxana Bacon, Chief Counsel, to David Martin, Principal Deputy Counsel.]

    I would like to request any information that you may have as to ongoing work on this topic. My recent RI case motion to reconsider I-290B was also denied.

    Thank you for your consideration.
