1. Comment: Immigration in the 112th Congress - Busy coping with


the recessionary immigration environment, most immigration


attorneys have paid little heed to the next Congress (due to be


elected in 7 weeks!), and what it may portend for their practice.


Many recent polls, extensively covered in the general press,


point to a huge Republican wave, likely leading to a switch in


party control in the House, and greatly reducing the Democratic


majority in the Senate. Should this scenario pan out, and the


smart money is betting that it will, numerous effects affecting


the immigration bar will surely result. Here are some highlights


of what to expect. First, forget about any talk of legalization


or even a temporary worker program. Both the business side and


the family side of the immigration benefits lobby will come up


with empty hands in the new Congress. It is likely that, like the


year McCain Kennedy cleared the Senate, the expected Republican


House will refuse to vote for any benefits at all. Second, strong


enforcement legislation is likely to pass Congress. We believe


that something similar to the Shuler bill will become law in the


112th Congress (in other words we should expect CIR without any


benefits, but with all the enforcement). Third, there is likely


to be some cutback in immigration benefits. At a minimum, we


expect that there will be discussion in the House about an


immigration moratorium (stopping immigration cold for a few


years, bringing back memories of 1921). The Executive Branch,


facing fiery and effective opposition from a Republican Congress,


and focused on the 2012 elections, will likely not have the


stomach for any pro-benefits reform. Forced on to the defensive,


it is entirely possible that the Administration may ratchet up


enforcement (interior and border) even further.


Here's what this means for immigration law firms: Compliance


business will likely sky-rocket, with the expected crack-down on


employers consequent to new enforcement legislation. Both


employment-immigration and family-immigration based practices are


likely to experience slow downs. Removal business will likely be


steady. Two caveats: (a) The above predictions are admittedly a


little far away, since they would be subsequent to new


enforcement legislation; (b) It must be borne in mind that there


are 2 macro factors affecting immigration lawyers' business - one


is the overall legislative/executive framework, and two is the


proportion of immigrants/employers who seek counsel, our analysis


above does not discuss the second factor.


For many years, immigration lawyers and advocates have become


accustomed to a generally pro-immigration rhetoric in Washington


DC. This was true even though votes on the floors of Congress did


not always match the rhetoric, and even though 9/11 and its


aftermath poisoned the atmosphere. What we are likely to see


within a few more weeks, is a completely different rhetoric -


that of 1994 and 1995, the very same rhetoric that led to AEDPA,


IIRAIRA, and the first federal budget differentiation between


USCs and LPRs (taken for granted today, but revolutionary at the


time). The racists are getting ready to take over the national


conversation on immigration. America's immigration saga


continues, stay tuned.

    There are many entrepreneur who come into this country under L visas and with their saving being invested here got stuck in the 18th century immigration policy and the stubborn officers . I am one of them . When the case is pending the holder should be given the right to go out and come back without any problem.
