Unions Back CIR

The Los Angeles Times
reports that the top two labor unions in the US announced their
backing for comprehensive immigration reform.   "The agreement,
supported by the AFL-CIO and the Change to Win federation,
supports the legalization of the nation's 12 million undocumented
immigrants and the formation of an independent commission to
analyze the labor market's needs and assess shortages for the
admission of future foreign workers. The unions oppose any new
guest worker programs that would allow employers to bring
foreigners in on a temporary basis."

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

(a) Recent Developments Regarding The Visa Waiver Program: Bayo
V. Chertoff And The Electronic System For Travel Authorization

David A. Isaacson writes "Therefore, even under the ESTA regime,
any alien who did not complete the online application him- or
herself may have a valid Bayo claim if he or she does not sign
a waiver in the appropriate language at the border."

(b) The New Case Against Immigration: Both Legal And Illegal

Daniel Griswold for the Foundation For Economic Education writes
"There are plenty of thoughtful questions to be considered when
it comes to the role of immigration in a free, modern, and
globally connected society. Unfortunately, this book brings
nothing new to the discussion."

(c) Bloggings On Immigration Law And Policy

Greg Siskind writes "The long and short of it is that the 6th
Circuit has held that a surviving spouse still is an immediate
relative under the Immigration and Nationality Act."

(a) Dear Editor:
Regarding the article America's Loss Is The World's Gain
(04/14/09 ID):  This situation may turn out to be an illustration
of Alexander Graham Bell's observation, "When one door closes,
another opens."  This will be true if it encourages Americans
(LPRs and citizens of the US) to get the training and education
they need to take the jobs that are being abandoned.  Maybe some
of the employers will provide tuition money or other types of
financial assistance in return for an employment commitment of
some kind.  It works for the military.  The rest of Alexander
Graham Bell's sentence is worth considering too, "but we often
look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door that we do
not see the one which has opened for us.
Nolan Rappaport, Esq

(b) Dear Editor:

(c) Dear Editor:
Comprehensive Immigration Enforcement is what is needed in the
US. The politicians and opened borders groups like to submit that
our immigration laws are broken. This simply is not true.
Politicians want us to give them amnesty along with the illegal
aliens. We would not have out of control immigration if the laws
had been enforced. It is time to tell the truth, politicians want
the illegal aliens here for votes. They spend our tax dollars to
buy the votes and dis-infranchise Americans and legal immigrants.
This insanity needs to stop. Nothing less than Comprehensive
Immigration Enforcement is acceptable.
