Evangelicals Push CIR

The New York Times reports "A new coalition of more than 100 largely evangelical Christian leaders and organizations asked Congress on Monday to pass bills to strengthen border controls but also give illegal immigrants ways to gain legal residency." Support by Protestant evangelicals (the single largest group within the Republican Party) for Comprehensive Immigration Reform (CIR) is the reason why the Republicans are split over immigration. Such support has been long in building, and is largely unanimous among evangelical leaders, as witness a recent Resolution of the National Association of Evangelicals. With most of the Democratic Party on board, along with a sizable chunk of the Republican Party, CIR rests on a strong political foundation. All that remains is tactical legislative moves to enact CIR. Immigration Daily will continue to keep you on top of the news.

Credential Evaluation
Do Not Order A Foreign Credential Evaluation Until You Read This. Career Consulting International (CCI) evaluates education in terms of USCIS requirements. Most evaluation agencies will perform an education evaluation that, while accurate, does not take into consideration the needs of an immigration lawyer, IT or HR firm, or candidate who is filing for the H1b or I-140 and needs to meet USCIS regulations and labor certificate education equivalencies. The CCI staff and consultants are knowledgeable in the laws and regulations of USCIS. Our H1b work experience evaluations have met with 100% approval by USCIS. While others use combinations of degrees to show equivalency of a 3-year bachelor's degree from India and other countries for the I-140, CCI understands that a 3-year degree must be shown equivalent to a US bachelor's degree as a single source degree with extensive research. CCI is very familiar with the different requirements concerning evaluations and keep abreast of changes in USCIS procedures for reviewing evaluations. All CCI evaluations are prepared in accordance with all USCIS guidelines. Visit us at the AILA conference: Booth 111. All Immigration Daily readers: Free 48hr. rush service if you mention ILW.COM.

Dear Editor:
In response to Sadi's letter (50/07/2007 ID), I doubt that Senators and Congressmen are going to do anything about the efficiency of the CIS. What is being referred to as "comprehensive immigration reform" has nothing to do with more efficient processing. In fact, I predict that any reforms that are instituted will only clog the system further. So, how do we do something? What if we all filed Writs of Mandamus to compel the government to act within a reasonable time? And I mean thousands of Writs, filed by every immigration lawyer whose cases go over 90 days. Would that get the government's attention?
