One of the article says--
"Waiting and worrying
While Miss Universe can land a green card in a matter of weeks, this Golden Pasties winner had to wait more than a year and a half because her lawyer left her birth certificate out of the application and the adjudication officer kept sending requests for more evidence. “I was a wreck, thinking at any minute they’re going to tell me you have to leave the country," she said. "It’s so hard to live your life that way. What do I do if I get kicked out? If I go back to Canada, I’ll have to get a desk job.” After $10,000 in legal fees, May got her ego-boosting green card in August."

So how is this a US government problem? If you hired a sloppy lawyer and paid a whopping 10K it is your problem? Putting such statements in media damages your own cause Madam!

Default Effect of CIR on Body Shopping Companies

Hi All. I was wondering how CIR might impact typical body shopping companies and their employees. Specifically companies and their employees who are part of the Client>Vendor>Employer>Employee model of functioning. Are provisions expected in CIR that might have a negative or positive effect on such companies and their employees?

And that is coming from one of the co-sponsors of HR 3012...don't read too much into it. Its trying to give himself wriggle room for negotiating a bit more border security money into the bill.

Details of sweeping Senate immigration plan revealed - First Read

A bit more detail on whats in the Senate bill...again, not much for legal immigration other than elimination of DV lottery and diversion of that to EB...raising EB usage to 40% from the current 15% levels.

* About 40 percent of employment-based visas would be allocated to professionals with advanced degrees to work in the United States in the sciences, arts and other professions, including certain people with foreign medical degrees. Those holding graduate degrees in engineering, mathematics, science and technology from U.S. universities also would be included.

Yes, it is very disappointing that there is no mention of removal of country caps. I hope, there is some additions to it once other Senators make changes to the proposals.

My gut feeling is that may be it is not explicitly spelled out in the outline but will be
there in the bill language.
