Anti-Immigrationists Hurt The War On Terror
According to a Reuters report today, Al Qaeda plans to strike again sometime before our Presidential elections are held this fall. John Brennan, director of the Terrorist Threat Integration Center, said "We are very vigilant and concerned about the potential for al Qaeda to try to carry out an attack on the homeland here before the end of the year, possibly to coincide with the 2004 presidential election". Subsequent to any such attack, anti-immigrationists are sure to perpetuate the false notion that the undocumented and terrorists are one and the same. We believe that none of the terrorists will be among the hardworking immigrants who come to the US to seek a brighter future for their families. To repeat the obvious, dishwashers and gardeners are not terrorists. Immigration law cannot be our main weapon in the fight against the terrorists, it is but a minor weapon in this fight. By skewing focus from the essentials to the minor, and by thus moving the dialog and the resources towards less fruitful channels, the anti-immigrationists hurt our country's ability in the war on the terrorists.

School District Adopts Novel Deduction Mechanism To Make Whole H-1B Employer
In the Matter of Administrator, Wage and Hour Division, Department of Labor, v. Teachers' Placement Group, et al., 2003-LCA-14 (OALJ, Feb. 23, 2004), the Office of Administrative Law Judges said that the Office of Administrative Law Judges said that it was only because the Newark Public School System refused to pay the H-1B Employer/Contractor for the H-1B teachers' services, and instead insisted on paying the teachers directly, that there was the need for a salary deduction mechanism, a fiction whereby Newark acted as the Employer for pay purposes, and reverted to a deduction mechanism to make the H-1B Employer whole.
