Comment: Regulatory Relief For Employment Immigration - The Huffington Post reports that a coalition of business and immigration groups is urging President Obama and his administration to reform administrative policies and regulations to ease employment-based immigration being strangled by a combination of broken immigration laws, restrictive regulations and onerous administrative practices. Over the past several months, despite discussion of reviewing regulatory policies, employers have been met with the reality of agency actions that delay vital projects, force companies to go without valuable employees and push work outside the United States. While in speeches the President has justifiably criticized policies that lead to educating international students in America only to send them back to their home countries, his own agencies make it difficult for skilled foreigners to work in America. The groups highlight specific measures that the Obama administration can and should take to ease employment-based immigrationwhich require no legislative action from the Congress. We have long advocated using executive action to provide immigration relief; chime in with what you think of this approach to creating a better climate for immigration by using our letters section or writing to us at
