I’m going to explain how the immigration service has been unlawfully revoking the approval of petitions for nearly a quarter of a century. The impact of this unauthorized action on hopeful immigrants has been terrible, resulting in many thousands losing their place in the queue after having waited many years, and having to move to the back of a line in some cases decades long. To understand how this has happened, you’ll need to unde...

I'm going to explain exactly how the government wastes on average tens of thousands of immigrant visas every year, contrary to Congressional intent, systematically compromising the workforce and keeping families apart.  Every number in this report represents a green card which could have been issued to a waiting immigrant, but was not handed out due to government mismanagement and ineptitude.  This loss of numbers impacts the very lives...

On the eve of the fakeout, listen and learn!
We’re going to take a look at the visa bulletin fakeout, or fiasco, or visagate 2015 as its been called.  You’ve heard about it because you were either hoping to file a green card application tomorrow, October first, or your employees have let you know they will suddenly not be able to proceed with an application now.  So what happened?  In this blog post we’ll take a look at what is going on, who is affected, why it happened, when it m...

In two separate opinions authored by separate courts, the judiciary allowed H-4 EAD applications to proceed, and continued to hold back DAPA hopefuls from receiving EADs (Employment Authorization Documents, work permits basically).   DAPA and expanded DACA: The State of Texas and other states sued DHS over Deferred Action for Parents of Americans (DAPA) and an expansion of the DACA program to remove the age cap and issue 3 year EADs,...

Tweet #visagate2015 "Go ask your mother," is what Department of State has said to aspiring immigrants, referring them to USCIS to see whether the November visa bulletin will be honored or not.  This is an embarassing slap in the face to the immigration agency, and exposes infighting and lack of communication between the two agencies responsible for managing the legal immigration process.   On Friday October 9, 2015, the State Depa...

While the visa bulletin fakeout has been a major focus on everyone's attention, let's not forget that the same mismanagement resulted in the waste of hundreds of thousands of visas that could have been used over past years.  Those visas are lost forever, and without special legislation will stay that way. The wasted visas are the reason the backlogs are so bad in the first place.  While desperate immigrants scramble for a few thousand ...

As part of President Obama's Executive Action announced November 2014, the gate that opens and closes the door to liberty just received two doors - one for those who can apply for green cards and a separate door for those who can be approved.  Until now, the visa bulletin, which summarizes the dates of available priority dates for those with approved immigrant petitions, has only had one list of dates, both for those who can apply and ...

Original February 23, 2015 post updated with May 26, 2015 Fifth Circuit ruling:  A Texas judge ordered a temporary hold on #immigrationaction Deferred Action for Parents of Americans (DAPA).  The  Feds have appealed, but they just lost in the Fifth Circuit.  Now that all but the nation's highest court has halted the DAPA program, the question remains: Is DAPA the only way to enact smart enforcement?  Arguably, the White House has anoth...

I am asked frequently why people who immigrate illegally don't just come here legally.  That's a good question, and it deserves a good answer. Estimates from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, the Pew Hispanic Research Center and USCIS show that 59% of all illegal immigration consists of people from Mexico.  Yet State Department Statistics show that only 15.6% of Mexican citizens who apply for business and tourist visas are re...
