The U.S. Department of State ("DOS") recently released its May 2013 Visa Bulletin which shows the availability of employment-based immigrant visa categories for the month of May. This month's Visa Bulletin features the following highlights: The EB-2 …

As a US Immigration Visa Lawyer, I have come to believe this country desperately wants new US immigration reforms. I fashioned this belief a very long time before our Congress began its immigration debates.

In my work, I had come to see several faults of our current policies. Particularly, there are some injustices that “persist” in today’s system.

What are they?

People who should stay are being deported. Folks who ought to leave USA are staying irrespective of their current immigration status.

All immigration policies must be based mostly on one principle. People who contribute to USA’s economy the most ought to forever be allowed to stay. Folks who create more issues by committing crimes, as an example, ought to be deported.

It’s a very simple principle that can work. By the way, after I talk about contribution to US economy, I do not mean solely contribution from professional people. That’s, individuals with degrees who have some specialised body of knowledge.

You’ll be able to contribute to the current economy by cleaning bogs or doing a farm work. After all, America wants people who clean toilets, move furniture, and do babysitting. In several cases, Yank individuals don’t want these jobs anyway. Why not let the foreigners do them? Someone has got to fill these positions too.

We tend to will regulate our immigration additional if we have a tendency to permit folks to fill these positions legally.

We have a tendency to should also implement several Canadian policies. In terms of its resources, USA tends to be more wealthy than Canada. However, folks are additional happy and satisfied with the direction in which Canadian government is leading them.

For instance, you do not see too many homeless folks there.

You are doing not see several unemployed people. You are doing not see too many people using its welfare system. Here, we have a tendency to have a riot for public benefits. It is as a result of Canada has “sensible” immigration policies in place. These policies clearly do work. Otherwise, the country would are a “mess” by now.

How will Canada accommodate its unwanted immigrants?

They are sometimes deported immediately. When there are legal battles to withhold a removal proceeding, a number of these unwanted immigrants are granted “no status.” It suggests that these immigrants will stay in Canada. But, they are doing not have any rights. Several “no status” immigrants are living in Toronto, Ontario. In several cases, these folks can solely live where there is a tight likelihood of obtaining a job.

Also, they live at intervals their own ethnic communities. Abundant like some employers in USA, some Canadian employers are still hiring “no standing” immigrants. Life is not straightforward for them. However, Canada has to look when its own welfare 1st before it will permit several foreigners to remain permanently.

Again, if we tend to don’t understand what immigration policies we tend to would like to adopt, we must examine Canada or Sweden. We tend to would are better off than we tend to are currently if we did so a while ago.

All our immigration problems stem from being in denial. For years, our society refused to acknowledge we tend to have immigration problems. What’s worse is we have a tendency to were not willing to try and do something concerning them. Within the mean time, these issues “grow” and “develop.”

In their words sample customer comments


Amex, you guys are excellent. Your transactions reconcile faster than any other banks I deal with, your gold card knows no limits (pardon the pun), & your customer service is top notch. Never an issue disputing a charge on the off chance I have one and each time I have to use customer service, the staff is empowered to take a corrective step if necessary rather than asking a manager ever 30 secondsRelated resources
