Nurse Immigration

The supplemental appropriations bill was signed into law (P.L. 109-13) by President Bush on May 11, 2005. As a result, 50,000 visa numbers are available for Schedule A occupations, including nurses. This is a very significant number and likely means that nurse immigration will be one of the hottest areas in immigration law in the next couple of years. Immigration Daily is pleased to announce its latest book, The Nurse Immigration Book, edited by William A. Stock and including contributions from Sylvia Boecker. To reserve your advance copy, see here.

We welcome readers to share their opinion and ideas with us by writing to editor@ilw.com.

Dear Editor:
John Garcia wrote to Immigration Daily (5/12/05 ID) about the recent ruling by Acting NY State Supreme Court justice Karen S. Smith, who on May 9, 2005 enjoined the New York State DMV from "requiring or in any way imposing a legal presence requirement or any immigration status as a condition of a drivers' license" or renewal. What about Article VI, Clause 2 of the United States Constitution? "This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in Pursuance thereof; and all Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land; and the Judges in every State shall be bound thereby, any Thing in the Constitution or Laws of any State to the Contrary notwithstanding." I'm no attorney, but it seems to me that the REAL ID Act, once signed into law by our President, should take precedence over the ruling made by judge Smith, and the resulting injunction that was granted against the NY Department of Motor Vehicles will be of limited value for the issuance or renewal of "driver's licenses". As a result of this new federal law, the State of New York DMV will still be able to issue a "driving certificate", but not a "driver's license", the distinction being that the "driving certificate" will not be usable for many official identification purposes.
