3.  ARTICLES


(a) Bloggings On Dysfunctional Government


Angelo A. Paparelli writes "I've never spoken with Mr. Mayorkas
about the emotional side of money, but I suspect from his
observation below that he would agree with "Your Money or Your
Life" authors Joe and Vicki about its power of producing life
energy."
http://www.ilw.com/articles/2010,0319-paparelli.shtm
http://www.seyfarth.com/


(b) Bloggings On The H-1B Visa


Anthony F. Siliato and Scott R. Malyk write "While demand will
most likely pale in comparison to that of the pre-financial
crisis years, a turnaround in business sentiment - and an
increased demand from Indian IT companies in particular - may
result in the cap being reached well before the protracted filing
period of nearly 8 months during the last fiscal year."
http://www.ilw.com/articles/2010,0319-siliato.shtm
http://www.corporateimmigrationlaw.com/


(c) Bloggings on Deportation And Removal


Matthew Kolken writes "Today one of Barack Obama's most ardent
supporters, Congressman Luis Gutierrez, (D-Ill 4th Dist.), has
written a scathing op-ed on The Huffington Post that is harshly
critical of the President's handling of the immigration reform
issue."

    I thought that I would share a recent decision we received from the USCIS Administrative Appeals Office confirming that Nurse Instructors qualify as Schedule A occupations. This decision could help facilitate the permanent hiring of foreign nurse instructors at U.S. nursing schools. The shortage of nursing faculty limits nursing school enrollment and is one of the factors contributing to the U.S. nursing shortage.

    How can anyone reading Obama's March 18 statement about the Schumer-Graham "reform" proposal possibly have any illusions about where Obama stands. Maybe I need new glasses, but I didn't see a single world in his statement about legalization, increasing visa availability for professional workers, ending backlogs, or fairer adjudications. Instead I saw only more of the same old right wing mantras about unleashing Janet Napolitano to do her thing by increasing barriers along the border, cracking down in people allegedly "gaming" the immigration system (i.e. any legal immigrant, as far as the restrictionistas are concerned) and, of course, getting rid of the despised illegals.

    Whom did we elect as president anyway, Barack Obama or Tom Tancredo? It is becoming increasingly hard to see the difference.
  3. Roger Algase, Attorney at Law's Avatar
    To correct a typo, I meant "word", not "world", in my last comment. I would also like to put in a word about the Schumer-Graham proposal itself, as described in their Washington Post article. What a letdown! In exchange for ever tougher enforcement, including more harassment of employers who dare to hire anyone caught speaking Spanish, useless policing of the Mexican border, and an Orwellian high-tech national identity card for everyone, immigrant and US citizen alike, what does the immigration community get?

    It gets a "guest worker" program which would be inoperative in the current recession and a "tough but fair" path to legalization. Nice, but we have heard that one before. If anyone remembers, legalization got killed in 2007, at a time when hatred and prejudice against Latino and other minority immigrants was less than it is now, because then we had a president who had the guts to speak out for legalization against fierce opposition in his own party, and we also had a much stronger economy.

    Now, the 2007 banner of hate, "No Amnesty of Illegals" would look like a slogan calling for tolerance and diversity compared to what is in store now for any proposal to grant legal status to even a single Mexican.

    And as for legal immigration, where do Schumer and Graham say anything about increasing visas, reducing backlogs or granting fairer adjudications? Nowhere. Instead, they would skew the system in favor of a small elite, namely immigrants who are rich enough to be able to afford to pay the high cost of obtaining an advanced degree in technology or a related field in the US.

    This is not comprehensive immigration reform. It is not even a Faustian bargain with the devil of anti-immigrant bigotry. It is nothing but a ticket to a ride on the ship of fools.

    With apologies, comparing President Obama and Tom Tancredo is a bit strange. There may be many who are disappointed that President Obama hasn't thrown open the border, but there are just as many others would like to see him "crack down" even more on violators of the immigration laws. And, as always, if each side of the immigration issue insists that they get "all or nothing", then each side will get nothing. If people can't bring themselves to bring up the "C" word - compromise, the useless rhetoric will continue.
