Comment

Lip Service

The Hill reports "The South Carolina Republican [Senator Graham] had no kind words for the president's efforts on the topic, accusing him of ignoring immigration and paying lip service only for temporary political reasons. Graham laughed off the president's claim that he's been 'unwavering" in his support for immigration overhaul. "This idea that the president has been unwavering on immigration doesn't really pass the smell test.' "

Articles

Immigrants And Bankruptcy
Kathleen Lord-Black write "Long-held and negative cultural views of bankruptcy and insolvency may make your client reluctant to discuss financial issues with you or with bankruptcy counsel, but a proactive discussion regarding the relevant facts may save both the client’s immigration case and preserve his or her financial freedom."

Immigration, Political Realignment, And The Demise Of Republican Political Prospects
James G. Gimpel for the Center for Immigration Studies writes "Between 1980 and 2008, 25.2 million people were granted permanent residency (green cards) by the United States."

Bloggings On PERM Labor Certification
Joel Stewart writes "In summary, both a PERM case and an I-140 Immigrant Visa Petition may be revoked for a material error. Whether a non-material error can support a revocation or invalidation may depend on the type of error made. Even if the application or petition is revoked, a new application or petition may be refiled with the corrected information."
