    The ILW article, "A True Test Of The U.S. Lack Of Economic Recovery: The Continued Availability Of H-1B Numbers For Fiscal Year 2011 Post April 1st by Wendy Castor Hess" is interesting, but likely misleading. Hiring is almost always a trailing indicator. I expect hiring of immigrants in specialty jobs to be no different.
    The Administration made black farmers something of a low priority and the depth of Obama's support there, if not the breadth, suffered, but the political effects in the next two elections should be minimal. Unlike black farmers, however, Latinos and immigrants generally are spread heavily across a number of swing districts. The inaction expected on immigration by most of the news sources cited in today's ILW bodes ill for the administration and its Congressional majorities, especially as few immigrant groups look to the President as one of their own who cannot be abandoned.

    Harry Reid has made clear what the Democrats' strategy on immigration reform is: pretend to be trying to do something while making sure that nothing happens. Instead of taking on the overt racism that is at the heart of much of the anti-immigrant movement, the Democrats will continue to say nice things about how great reform would be if it would only happen by itself, without anyone actually having to take responsibility for introducing and passing a bill.

    Meanwhile, the Obama administration continues to outdo even the hypocrisy of the Congressional Democrats by giving vague lip service to reform, while continuing to let top officials like DHS Secretary Napolitano terrorize Latino immigrants. At the same time, Obama is giving faceless bureaucrats like USCIS's Donald Neufeld the license to restrict access by predominantly Asian immigrants to legal visas by disregarding laws, regulations and established policies just as blatantly as any Mexican who comes across the border without authorization.

    Responding To ID's April 19th Comment, Articles Express, it appears that ID is not following this editorial policy. ID seems to be a vehicle for liberals, amnesty advocates and other time wasting bloggers whose articles are irrelevant to our immigration law practice.

    ID readers and the immigration bar will be better served by articles written by people regardless of political persuasion that are not only relevant but are also material and useful dealing with:

    Here's how to do it, provide:

    (1) insights on burning issues on immigration law and practice
    (2) one sentence summaries of recent immigration decisions from all courts and the bia with a link to where the decision can be found
    (3) summaries of governmental policies on immigration with a link to the policy memorandum itself.

    I hope you will take this as constructive suggestion. If you do I will continue to contribute to ID publications.
