    A waiver for the provisions related to violations of Chapter 75 just to reconcile it with it's CIMT counterpart would be a simple way to solve this problem. Note that the waiver would NOT be available to GWP applicants but would be available in any other instance where 212(h) relief is permitted. A simple and minor change would take care of this problem, a change that would have zero impact on the current conception of legalization since there's no criminal waiver available to applicants for those benefits anyway.
    Also, the waiver would be in tune with current INA provisions that allow 212(h) relief for certain immigrants on CIMT grounds.

    A violation of Chapter 75 is a CIMT as it involves some degree of fraud or intent to defraud. So the new statute for violations of Chapter 75 is ALREADY included in the CIMT provision.

      Since we're discussing these criminal grounds and retroactive application of these new amendments to the USC there's something that needs to be said.
      Without an amendment to the Constitution, Congress cannot escape the rulings in Collins or the ex post facto provisions of the Constitution. Attaching deportation consequences to a crime is one thing, but the retroactive application of a new statute is another, and it's illegal! (See Collins).

          Agreed, but whatever is to be done must be done in a constitutional manner.

              The new guest worker program does not say anything
              about 212(a)(6)(C). Lots of worker will be affected if they are inadmissible under 212(a)(6)(C), again they will enter the country ilegally. Guest worker programm will not stop the flow of illegal entry.

                William 2006 (Houston? ),

                now this is how one should present his/her argument when discussing certain Sections of the Bill:

                By clearly pointing to the Title and exact Sections/Subsections with the link to the Title/Bill being discussed.

                    If you're going into immigration law, get yourself the biggest bottle of thumbs you can find, lots of tylenol and get ready for a world that does not make much sense. But you'll be helping a group of people in desperate need of relief, you'll be making a real difference.

                      And why is that? It's because immigration law is extremely complex and very easy to misread. The 9th circuit recently stated that immigration law is too complicated for the regular individual to understand, as they couldn't see how somebody could attend a hearing without legal representation.

                        I would also state that about tax law with immigration law slightly more complex than tax law.

                          William2006,

                          Which country do you feel has the most effective immigration system?

                          Also, I read this analysis which mentioned the lack of a statute of limitations in our immigration laws among other flaws they feel are present in the Hagel/Martinez compromise:

                            The biggest flaw in the US immigration law today is the lack of statue of limitations for deportation. Everyone, especially all the xenophobes, brag about how other countries have criminal penalties, harsh regulations, etc, ALTHOUGH no one among those individuals seems to register above their shoulders that most if not all of the other countries have a statue of limitations for deportation. Just to name a few: UK, Switzerland, Germany ...
                            Although most EU countries have on the books the harsh penalties, EU countries rarely enforce them; thus giving a duality in the EU immigration system. However, I will agree that the US needs to do a better job for foreign students who greaduate to make it easier to become permenant residents. This is one reason wny I want a guest worker program that fits the needs of our economic priorities to sustain GDP grwoth.
