In August, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services issued a new policy guidance on the adjudication of L-1B nonimmigrant visas, which allows multinational corporations to move foreign employees with “specialized knowledge” to their operations inside the U.S.
In a letter to USCIS Director Leon Rodriguez, Grassley on Tuesday expressed concerns about the intent, substance, and implementation of the memo. The chairman specifically highlighted comments President Obama made about L-1B reforms in March, in which he said, “This could benefit hundreds of thousands of nonimmigrant workers and their employers.”
“I fear – especially in light of the remarks made by the President in March – the effect that this L-1B memo will have on American workers, particularly in the IT sector, who are already battered by mass layoffs, job offshoring, and depressed wages,” Grassley wrote Tuesday.
“I expect, regardless what the memo may actually provide, that ‘the message’ has already been sent to USCIS adjudicators, from no less than the President himself: the L-1B denial and [Request for Evidence] rates must go down,” he added.
Clearly, the Treason Bar is the tail that wags the Obama Regime dog. Not the first time. Note that this blog predicted the Obama Regime Administrative Amnesty in 2010, with the above article posted at VDare not published until one year later. Here's the first time the Treason Bar telegraphed the Obama Regime's eventual actions:
I detected the Obama Regime’s coming drive for an Administrative Amnesty on my blog Federale back on February 24, 2009, just a month after Obama’s inauguration. Two hacks from the treason bar, Gary Endelman and Cyrus D. Mehta, argued that Congress stood in the way of an amnesty. They announced it was up to Barack Hussein Obama to give the country one, by hook or by crook. I remembered Clinton Administration White House operative’s Paul Begala’s comment describing the last Democratic President’s use of executive orders: Stroke of the pen, law of the land. Kinda cool.
Good to see though that there is still some resistance in the bureaucracy to the lawlessness of the Obama Regime. However, not thanks to John Boehner and Mitch McConnell, there is no support for these heroes in the bureaucracy fighting a rear-guard action in defense of the Constitution. All this could be undone if #cuckservatives and #RINOs attached a few riders to the upcoming appropriations bills. But that won't happen.
