(a) Immigration Honor - North Carolina Rising Stars 2010
Murali Bashyam, founding attorney and managing partner of Bashyam
Spiro, LLP, a firm committed to the practice of Immigration and
Nationality Law, was selected by Super Lawyers Magazine for their
"North Carolina Rising Stars 2010" honor.

(a) Dear Editor:
The memos of USCIS Acting Associate Director Donald Neufeld of
May 6, 2009, dealing with unlawful presence, and January 8, 2010,
dealing with the definition of an employer, are blatant
ideological attacks on the legal immigration system. The May 6,
2009 memo is dangerous, not because it contains anything new
regarding the 3/10 year bars to admissibility, but because it
removes the long standing protection against deportation of
applicants for adjustment of status to permanent residence (green
card, also known as an I-485 application) who are not unlawfully
present, and who were maintaining valid legal status at the time
of filing for adjustment. Essentially, the memo says that if the
applicant fails to keep extending temporary "non-immigrant"
status, having a pending I-485 is no protection against
deportation. This can have a devastating effect on someone who
may have to wait many years for the adjustment application to be
approved because of quota limitations, but who is unable to
extend "non-immigrant" status because doing so might be
inconsistent with having immigrant intent, as in the case of an
F-1student, or may also be subject to time limitations by law, as
in the case of J-1. Even where there is no inconsistency, such as
in the case of someone who has H-1B or L-1 status, the applicant
may no longer be working in the job on which the non-immigrant
status is based. The only purpose of this memorandum seems to be
to render people who have done everything possible to follow the
law illegal and deportable. This assault on legal immigration
should be challenged in court.

(b) Dear Editor:
The Village Voice "article" referred to in Roger Algase, Esq.'s
letter to the Editor (2/5/10 ID) sounds an awful lot like the
2/2/10 column by Gustavo Arellano which appeared in the Voice,
the Dallas Observer and many other papers across the country.
Yes, Mr. Arellano, was being sarcastic, as he is often.
