(a) Dear Editor:
This letter will deal with another unfair Donald Neufeld USCIS
memo, of November 5, 2009, dealing with H-1B petitions filed
without an approved Labor Condition Application (LCA). USCIS has
had a general policy of refusing to accept H-1B petitions without
a valid, certified, LCA, However, last summer and fall, as every
H-1B practitioner knows, there was a malfunction in the
Department of Labor (DOL) computer system causing thousands of
properly filed LCA's to be denied. This caused delays in
obtaining certified LCA's and therefore in being able to file
H-1B petitions. This problem became acute in November and
December, 2009, as the annual quota of H-1B visas started to
become used up. On November 5, 2009, Neufeld issued a memo
stating that USCIS would accept H-1B petitions without a
certified LCA as long as an LCA application had been filed, and
that USCIS would then accept the certified LCA later on. So far,
so good. But subsequently, Neufeld modified the memo to provide
that, if the initial uncertified LCA application was ultimately
denied, the entire H-1B petition would also be denied, even if
the LCA had been denied through the DOL's mistake and a new LCA
was eventually certified later on. In effect, H-1B petitioners
with properly filed, but uncertified, LCA applications were
forced either to wait for an approved LCA, which could take two
weeks or longer if the initial one was denied, before filing the
H-1B petition, thereby losing valuable time in the quota race, or
to play a game of Russian roulette with both the LCA and the
quota. Let us hope that this irrational policy will be corrected
before next year's H-1B visas are used up.

(b) Dear Editor:
An article in the Foreign Policy on remittances called "Big
Senders" has implications for our immigration policy. The nut
graphs are: In 2001, the United States was the unchallenged
remittance king, accounting for more than 30 percent of the money
sent home from migrants working in these top destinations-those
sending $700 million a year or more. And... The relative
importance of remittances has also grown. In the last five years,
they have begun to dwarf foreign aid coming from governments.
Today, remittances collectively account for three times the
official financial assistance sent to the developing world. In
some countries, the ratio is far higher. Tajikistan's emigrants
send home seven times what the country gets in aid. Workers from
countries such as Mexico, Nepal, Pakistan, Romania, Zimbabwe, and
Kyrgyzstan are probably doing more to help the poor than any
global conferences or philanthropic ventures.
