CIR's chances improving


Last week, the
New York Times reported that new USCIS Director Alejandro Mayorkas is preparing for Comprehensive Immigration Reform (CIR). The Director's preparations aren't wishcasting, but are directives from the President himself. The odds of CIR may increase if the President takes a personal interest in the issue.

For members of the healthcare industry, this is a welcome bit of news. Sen. Schumer's staff is said to be working on a CIR bill. The Senator has long been a friend of reasonable healthcare visa numbers. If CIR can gain momentum, there is a good chance that the long retrogression may be over.

  4. Why is there no bill yet? Mr. Schumer had promised one before the labour day. Is it beacause President told him to hold on until something substantive is accomplished on health care?
    Mr. Obama has disappointed a lot of his voters until now. His support is declining and funniest of all even SNL is picking on him.
