May Day Marches

This May Day, immigration advocates are taking to the streets
across the country demanding speedy action on immigration reform.
The Orland Sentinel
reports "Organizers said they were hoping thousands of people
would attend the Orlando demonstration, but these events have
shrunk in size since the large immigration marches of three years
ago -- when attendance estimates ranged from 20,000 to 50,000
people in Orlando and millions in some of the country's largest
cities. "

We welcome readers to share their opinion and ideas with us by
writing to mailto:editor@ilw.com.

(a) Dear Editor:
I have been in the international recruitment and immigration
arena since 1997.  Immigrants if recruited correctly with proper
screening procedures that is suitable for the International
movement of skilled and professional people to fill skills gaps
have a lot to contribute.  Most of the issues about taking
American jobs are taking things to the extreme for professionals
in silicon valley, a good American candidate will not be turned
down for an H-1B applicant as it doesn't make sense to do so.  1.
There is no guarantee they will get the visa  2. Its expensive to
do  3. It takes time   Now, with H-2B we have a different
situation which we have witnessed first hand, problems are
aplenty due to very poor quality applicants being pushed so that
some agents can make a quick buck. However, if done properly and
by the right recruiters for skilled jobs like welders, fitters
and many other blue collar skills that are hard to find in USA
even during a recession, then this is a blessing to the
employers.  In the US, and this is not a criticism, its an
observation, but there seems to be very little awareness that
there is a worldwide competition for the very best migrant
workers.   Canada for example needed masses of skilled workers
from Nurses to skilled welders and pipe fitters and they were
succeeding in bringing in from a very limited international pool,
along with Australia the Canadians have recognized the need for
migrant workers and what they can offer to the economy.   Perhaps
this such an issue for America as the market tends to go for the
Mexican workers anyway, but the Australians, Canadians and
British are cherry picking the very best from Philippines, India
and other countries and they are taking all the fluent English
speaking skilled tradesmen.

(b) Dear Editor:
Regarding Kaushik's letter's (4/30/09 ID) lament yesterday on the
3 year foreign BS vs the US   4 year being an impediment to legal
immigration.      Personally I am hoping that the US Citizens
with deportable or deported   foreign spouses will be in line
ahead of any "purely" legal or illegal aliens  in terms of
"immigration relief".  While I think its just dandy to recruit
foreign talent, I think the rights of these US Citizens who chose
like other  US Citizens to marry whom they love, should be free
to live in the US with  thier husband or wife instead of exiled
to a foreign country because they  did not follow "proper
protocol" according to USCIS.      It will never cease to baffle
me that people who meet here in the US in a  very traditional way
often meet insurmountable obstacles to living happily ever after
yet those surfing the net for love can import a total stranger to
fufill thier love  desires in a few short months.
