Canada launches … New Bridging Open Work Permit

Canada launches … New Bridging Open Work Permit 5.00/5 (100.00%) 1 vote

After a series of phenomenal changes in the Canadian immigration; another feather has been capped into the same WWICS Reviw . The Canadian authorities have eased up the limitations on the economic class applicants by enabling their status maintenance and continuity to work in Canada while waiting for their PR application acceptance.

The new Bridging Open Work Permit would be a cutting red tape for the skilled immigrants and a boost to Canada’s economy. This new launch would be progressing for applicants for permanent residency with better opportunities to incorporate into Canada’s labor market to the benefit of our economy and all Canadians.

The permit would be immediately available and valid for one year from the date of insurance. Qualifying foreign nationals currently in Canada , who have submitted an application for permanent residence under the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP), Canadian Experience Class (CEC), Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) or the Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP) may be considered for an open work permit if their current work permit is about to expire.

Previously, applicants who were awaiting a decision on their permanent residence application could find their temporary work permits expiring before their application was processed. As a result, these individuals would no longer have been authorized to work in Canada unless their employer applied for and received a Labor Market Opinion from Human Resources and Skills Development Canada (HRSDC) and the applicant then applied for an extension of status.

Open work permits are already available for other in-Canada immigration streams, such as live-in caregivers, spouses or common-law partners. This improvement will result in consistent treatment for other applicants already in Canada.

WWICS  This effort would be a preventive measure which has been unnecessary disruption in the lives of the newcomers who are already contributing and successfully integrating into the Canadian economy. Improvements to the immigration system like this will help Canada attract the best and brightest from around the world – the skilled immigrants who will fulfill the need of skilled labor shortages.

What Do Americans Really Think of Immigration?

What Do Americans Really Think of Immigration? 5.00/5 (100.00%) 1 vote

With a certain blowhard fanning the flames, the debate over immigration has gotten testy. Unlike Europeans, who are now confronting a combustible immigration crisis, Americans cherish romantic notions of “huddled masses yearning to breathe free.” That said, there’s also fear and suspicion. A plurality see illegal immigrants costing the country “more than they contribute.”

Most agree that immigrants are coming mainly for jobs—not fleeing persecution or drawn in by Obamacare. As for what their “quintessentially American” first stop should be: the National Mall, in Washington, D.C. Times Square was a close second, though we can’t imagine why.

Some—overwhelmingly Republican—want to require all Muslim immigrants to register as Muslim. (Too bad about the First Amendment!) Americans are also unaware that the French designer of the Statue of Liberty used a Muslim peasant woman in imagining his concept. Does that mean she’ll need a green card, too?

As for Obama, half of all Republicans say he was born in another country. Maybe the good news, even from this perspective, is that he took a job that no sane American would want.

This poll was conducted on behalf of CBS News by SSRS of Media, Pennsylvania, among a random sample of 1,000 adults nationwide, interviewed by telephone January 8–12, 2016. Some low-percentage answer choices have been omitted.

U.S. Citizen Jailed in Immigration Status Mistake

U.S. Citizen Jailed in Immigration Status Mistake 5.00/5 (100.00%) 1 vote

Ricardo Garza was just a few footsteps from freedom when the trouble started.

He had posted bail and was on his way out the door of the Grand Prairie Police Department Detention Center — where he had been booked on charges of driving while intoxicated — when a jailer began asking questions.

“I was maybe 3 feet away from breathing fresh air,” Garza recalled. “And [the jailer] said ‘What’s your name? What’s your birthdate? What’s your social? Where were you born?’”

That last question, and the way police reacted to his answer, would throw the 46-year-old warehouse manager into the messy intersection of local law enforcement and U.S. immigration policy, ultimately triggering a federal lawsuit.

Garza told jail officials he was born in Mexico but had since become a U.S. citizen. But when the jail contacted U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement to verify his status, federal immigration officials told jailers they believed Garza was a U.S. permanent resident whose criminal history potentially made him a deportable immigrant.

Their request to Grand Prairie: Don’t let him out.

What happened next highlighted the conflicting pressures local jails face when it comes to foreign-born inmates: On one hand, state and federal lawmakers want local law enforcement officials to be tough on immigrants accused of crimes. On the other, civil rights activists and immigrant advocates want federal immigration authorities to stop asking local jails to turn over information on people who are arrested. They cite the detention of potential citizens as Exhibit A in their quest.

ICE placed a detainer on Garza on Oct. 30, 2015, 13 days after he was arrested, the same day he was transferred to Dallas County Jail. A detainer is the agency’s way of asking a jail to delay an inmate’s release by up to 48 hours so immigration officials can take them into custody. Dallas County decided to hold Garza without allowing him to post bond. Garza’s detainer was not canceled until Dec. 5 — 36 days later — when his attorney, Eric Puente, provided evidence that Garza had “derived,” or acquired, U.S. citizenship when his mother naturalized in 1984. ICE has no civil authority to place immigration detainers on U.S. citizens.

“On Dec. 5, while still in the custody of Dallas County Jail, Mr. Garza’s attorney provided additional documentation to ICE officers which indicated that Mr. Garza had derived U.S. citizenship,” agency spokesman Carl Rusnok said in a statement. “Based on this information, ICE dropped its detainer the same day.”

Garza and six other former Dallas County inmates filed a federal civil rights lawsuit on December 18 against Dallas County and Sheriff Lupe Valdez, alleging that Dallas County violated their constitutional rights by refusing to release them on bond because they had immigration detainers. Puente said the county’s action amounted to illegal pretrial detention.

“What Dallas County does is they go much further than what ICE is asking them to do,” Puente said. “They use the ICE detainer as an instrument to deny the constitutional right to bail. They say, ‘because you have an ICE detainer, you just can’t pay bail. You cannot get out, period, until your case is disposed of.’”

Rusnok said ICE asked Dallas County to notify its agents 48 hours before Garza was going to be released — not to hold Garza beyond when he would have otherwise been let go.

Melinda Urbina, a spokeswoman at the Dallas County Sheriff’s Department, declined to comment on Garza’s case because of the ongoing lawsuit. But she said that if ICE asks the county to hold an inmate for an extra 48 hours, the additional time typically does not begin until after the prisoner’s county charges are resolved.

HHS head: Immigration reform would help reach universal health coverage

HHS head: Immigration reform would help reach universal health coverage 5.00/5 (100.00%) 1 vote

Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia Mathews Burwell says immigration reform would help achieve universal health coverage.

Asked about the further steps needed to achieve universal coverage, with roughly 30 million people remaining uninsured, Burwell told a roundtable of reporters Friday that immigration reform is one step, along with continued growth in ObamaCare’s marketplaces and Medicaid expansion.

“We’re continuing, as you can see, with the marketplace, to continue to grow it, Medicaid is the other large population that would make a big difference, and then the third change in terms of things that would contribute to a large number is actually changes in the immigration laws,” Burwell said.People in the country illegally are currently barred from enrolling in Medicaid or ObamaCare marketplace coverage, leaving many of them uninsured.
