Dear Editor:
I'm a US export control lawyer, and I'm really enjoying the ILW.COM website and publications. As an export control lawyer, I deal with issues relative to the release of controlled technologies in the US to foreign nationals. I've read a number of great pieces on your site addressing various immigration aspects of the new NSEERS program, which identify the shortcomings of the program. None of the articles I have seen, however, discuss related issues of a national security nature which tie into the NSEERS program, such as those involving technology release to foreign nationals (e.g., "deemed exports" as they are commonly called), or laws which require US companies to screen foreign nationals for terrorism and proliferation related concerns prior to employment. As I see it, the US government is actually helping companies out via the various security checks being conducted at the US consulates and prior to entry, at least as far as those companies' other US legal obligations are concerned.. Would you be interested in receiving an article addressing these issues from the export control (i.e., deemed export perspective), and if so, what are your requirements?
