DOL Continues To Progress To PERM

DOL is a large institution. As it progresses toward PERM, careful observers will notice unmistakable signs of progress. For instance, ETA's Chicago office recently issued a Memo, saying in part "Before the end of calendar year 2004, Federal foreign labor certification staff nationwide will be relocated to two Perm Processing Centers located in Atlanta and Chicago." DOL also issued a Federal Register notice belatedly announcing further changes as the Department continues its progress toward PERM. In an article today, we present a DOL Document Checklist for Labor Certification to help attorneys stay abreast of the fast moving developments at DOL. Our new telephonic seminar "PERM Softly Creeping: Backlog Reduction, Regional Processing And Other Troubling Sounds Of Silence" is another tool for attorneys to stay on top of this important area of immigration practice. For more info, detailed curriculum, speaker bios, and registration information, see:

In response to the recent article by Angela Kelley of the National Immigration Forum, hell will freeze over before this country passes any additional immigration bills. Those who are hell bent on destroy this country are just wasting their time and money.
