(a) Using Fake Documents To Get A Valid U.S. Passport


Bruce Schneier writes "However, the GAO's investigation proves
that even the best technology can't keep a country safe when the
bureaucracy behind it fails."

http://www.schneier.com/about.html


(b) New Americans In The Last Frontier: Immigrants, Latinos, And

(c) Bloggings On PERM Labor Certification


Joel Stewart writes "In actual fact, the mechanism for 2nd
preference exceptional ability petition (without a separate PERM
application approved by DOL) requires a Schedule A application
under the DOL's precertification standards, and these standards
resemble the very strict standards for 1st preference
extraordinary ability."

    Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, one of the Democrats' most likely potential allies on a range of legislation, said in an interview he would no longer work with the majority party on an immigration overhaul. He said because of the Democrats' tactics in passing the health package, the "well has been poisoned."

    Regarding this particular item, it looks like this is a 2009 product not breaking news:

    Using Fake Documents To Get A Valid U.S. Passport

    Bruce Schneier writes "However, the GAO's investigation proves
    that even the best technology can't keep a country safe when the bureaucracy behind it fails."
