Lawsuit Asks Whether the President Can Give Work Authorization to Anyone He Wants

It is well known that the utility Southern California Edison recently H-1B'd about 500 American employees. A number of these Americans who were replaced by H-1B workers have fought back by filing a lawsuit challenging the recent regulations to authorize spouses of H-1B workers on H-4 visas to work as well. (I am an attorney representing Save Jobs USA, the organization that filed the lawsuit.)

H-1B Incompetence

On my last project before law school, we had an H-1B database administrative, Uma. Uma did not know the first thing about databases and struggled to learn through books on the job. Sadly, she had no real computer talent and would never become very good in the field.So why was Uma on the project?The company put in place a policy of only allowing contract workers from H-1B bodyshops to save them about $10 an hour.

Jonathan Gruber, Voter 'Stupidity', and Immigration

The story of Jonathan Gruber's videotaped commentary on Obamacare sheds light on the immigration debate.

Gruber is an MIT professor of economics who collected $400,000 of taxpayer dollars to come up with the plan for Obamacare. Gruber later appeared in a video in which he described the deception used to mislead the American people on the legislation. Gruber describes the how the bill was intentionally written in a tortured way to mislead the public, how "a lack of transparency is a huge political advantage", and refers to the "stupidity of the American voter".
