Purushottam Dhakal, Los Angeles: A surprise report by the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) reveals the Obama administration is involved in another massive scandal. More than 5.5 million new work permits were issued to aliens from 2009 to 2014 in addition to the green cards and temporary worker admissions over that same time period. The CIS further reveals this “huge parallel immigrant work authorization system” operates “outside the limits set by Congress” and “inevitably impacts opportunities for U.S. workers, damages the integrity of the immigration system, and encourages illegal immigration.”
Among the number of Nepali immigrants residing in USA who is not having the green card has been influenced by the recent report by the Centre of Immigration Studies and it introduces another massive scandal against the Obama administration. More than 5million illegal immigrants residing in USA has hope of being settling there legally has changed dramatically when his announcement got halt before the implementation as the CIS report got published and the opposition stitched on it. According to the CIS report within the time span of 2009 to 2014, 7.4 million immigrants got work permit. This CIS report has introduces big dispute in the American politics .The opposition are against the new immigration bill purposed by the Obama administration as they have exceed the quota by much more as that has been sanctioned by the American Parliament before. The house has sanctioned to allow 5 million green card and 3.5 million work permits within the time span of 2009 to 2014.As going against the predefined hypothesis of the Immigration Law it has been nicked as the shadow immigration system as well as the parallel immigration system of the US house by the opposition.
Legal practitioner Mr. Binod Roka residing in New York city told us that according to the American immigration law anyone applying for the Green card can apply for the Work permit and will easily get while his application is being process. According to him long pending of the application for getting Green card compel the applicants to apply and get the Work permit as it can be get easily within the 90 days. He added that in case of asylum application the process take bit longer to get decided so Work permit is easily released to those applicants. As it take long period while processing for the Green Card and Asylum application the number of renewal of Work Permit has increased drastically these days. He further added why the number of Work permits has exceeded such in high ration that for those to who are sure certain of getting Green card also need to take work permit because of the delay in application processing. So Mr. Shrestha remarked that it is unfair to judge all with the work permit into single group. As once the green card is released the work permit automatically gets dissolve so it’s not the big deal to stare at the statistics about how many Work permits have been issued. He concluded that it can be wipe out tremendously if the process of getting Green Card and decision for the Asylum cases gets accelerated. He further added that the various factor such as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, November 20th of Obama Announcement related to Immigration will expected to increase the Work permit holder , the H1B visa holder spouse getting opportunity to have Work permit from next May and Department of Homeland Security has introduces many easier way to get Work permits in these days.
The opposition has claimed that such a high increase of Work Permits holder will be threaten to employment issue to its citizens , as the one with the Work Permit could get every job opportunity they will easily left the original citizen much back with their high skilled and expertise.
The latest numbers from the CIS report are even more infuriating. Approximately 1.8 million work permits were issued to aliens with temporary visas or those who entered under the Visa Waiver Program that provides eligible citizens or nationals of designated countries the ability to travel to the America for tourism or business for stays of 90 days or less without first obtaining a visa. Yet a whopping 67 percent, or 1.2 million, of those aliens had a visa status that does not allow for legal employment. Instead hundreds of thousands of work permits were issued to aliens on tourist visas, to foreign students, to dependents of students and to guest workers “all in categories not authorized for employment by law,” the CIS reveals.
