Bridging Immigration Schism

We recently became aware that in addition to the slogan/quote entries that were sent in to editor@ilw.com., this topic has been discussed on a couple of discussion boards. Please find the updated list here (scroll down to the bottom for new entries). Some people hold an artificial distinction, which we reject, between due process immigration law and business immigration law. Ideally, we seek a quote bridging these two critical halves of immigration law. We hope to decide this issue this month. Please continue to send us your thoughts and comments to editor@ilw.com.

Dear Editor:
Now that the H-1B cap of 65,000 visas has been reached so early it appears that American employers will be forced to ship more jobs overseas.

Sebastian
Washington, DC

Dear Editor:
I totally agree with Mr. Salike's letter. For the past several years we have tried to obtain support for the abolishment of this degrading way to obtain P.R. It started with Sen. Kennedy giving preference to Irish Nationals. It has outlived its usefulness (for him, anyway) It takes up the time of USCIS adjudicators as well as Consulate officers' time. We still have a backlog of worthy potential P.R's with all of the 2002 and 2003 I-485's E.B's. Can someone influential out there start a campaign? Is AILA strong enough?

N.A. Hyman

Dear Editor:
S. Salike's letter calls for abolishing the DV-lottery with respect to family-based visas. It is just like parrallel lines that never meet. Most DV applicants are not qualified for family-based visas. When they were denied that opportunity, none was available to obtain permanent residency.
