Kilili's DOI Report Stand

43 comments:

I really had to squint to see that thing. Previously it appearted that Kilili did support status for guest workers. His attitude during the early federalization hearings suggested his position. Additionally, Kilili drafted H.R. 3658 which gives parents of children born in the CNMI green cards after 5 years and cititizenship after 10. This bill would give citizenship to 5,000 guest workers within 10 years. I don't believe that Kilili consulted any of his constituents before drafting that bill. The bill benefits VOTERS aged 18-20 who are U.S. citizen descendants of guest workers. Letters such as the one he just wrote might alienate those VOTERS. Incumbent representatives normally receive quite a bit in campaign contributions from their district and from national corporations, so it will be interesting to see what happens in November.

Boo. He's lost my vote, and everyone else I can convince. Although after his stint by the roadside at today's poorly attended "education campaign", I don't think it will take any convincing.

All candidates for delegate attended the same "education campaign." Does this mean you are not voting?

The comments from the carnival ask to keep the status quo though and America will not allow that, and this is America.

As our 42nd President so memorably exclaimed, "It's the economy, stupid!"

Opponents of premature status are simply encouraging adherence to Public Law 110-229, which called for an economic study before any change of status, and encouraged DHS to register all aliens before any status change, as well.

More and more people are coming to realize the wisdom of granting Lawful Permanent Residence to those who have lived and worked legally in the CNMI for 18 years.

Biba Kilili!

Where did the 18 year figure come in? Where is the study to justify this wisdom? Why not 21 year presence? If a worker had children after 21 years they could petition at that time, why not a childless person.

"This is not America. This is colony of United State."

this is a collection of islands that would shrivel up and die without america, lest the fat and spoiled islanders give up their luxuries in favor of tradition.

that won't happen. all of the mc donald's eating, food stamp defrauding, cigarette smoking, cheap beer guzzling, government coffer plundering, and crab mentality locals feel as if they contribute to the world.

they don't even contribute to the islands. i guess that's why the marianas belongs to everyone but the chamorros and carolinians.

get mad if you like, but give a micronesian a budweiser and watch his determination disappear behind his bloated midsection.

Thank you, Unity March organizers.

Foreign national workers should apply for their green cards with USCIS at Tan Siu Lin Plaza on Beach Road as they become eligible, or before consular officials abroad as their U.S. citizen children petition them upon turning 21.

Biba Kilili!

Public Law 110-229 provides that CNMI labor law and regulations shall have at least some validity until November 28, 2011. Federal preemption applies only to the extent CNMI law is inconsistent with WRITTEN federal regulations. Statements by Interior don't have the force of law! So until DHS USCIS issues valid Contract Worker regs, foreign national workers would be well-advised to comply with all CNMI laws and regulations. Especially if one expects to be hired by a CNMI business in the future.

USCIS, we need those regs out now! ASAP.

Unless we want our surplus labor to simply go home. In which case, take your time and let it be. ;)

Anonymous said...

Wasn't the whole purpose of Public Law 110-229 to reduce our guest workers to zero by 2014?

Maybe DHS USCIS is simply delaying the regs to reduce our guest worker population by attrition. That makes less work for everyone.

Aliens aren't supposed to be hanging around the CNMI without a job waiting for a magic status change anyway. So this delay simply helps get rid of the overstayers.

Uncle Sam can probably outlast those unemployed former guest workers who refuse to leave. Time will tell.

The feds are holding all the cards, and they want secure borders with immigrants who have been properly screened.

Not people of questionable background who have lied on their CNMI entry permit employment applications, who then seek shelter from the Ombudsman's Office.

Interior doesn't trump Congress.

And thanks to Heinz Hofschneider, Arnold Palacios, Tina Sablan, Diego Benavente, and their cronies who refused to pass austerity legislation.

HA!

And those who supported federalized minimum wages and immigration without any economic study at all.

Saipan Middle Road, there are a lot of spam comments at the end of your November 30th discussion thread.

Why is the press not covering the case of Roger Ludwick v. Benigno R. Fitial, Edward T. Buckingham, and Robert Shrack, Civ. No. 10-0041 (N.M.I. Super. Ct.)?

Anonymous said...

There is not much right now to cover. As Roger wrote in an April 14, 2010 letter to the editor:

I am requesting that the court make a ruling on the legality and constitutionality of 1 CMC section 7207. It is my belief, based on Judge Govendo’s decision, that 1 CMC § 7207 violates the separation of powers granted to the three branches of our government by the CNMI and U.S. Constitutions. The injured party by this law is the plaintiff. The court awards a cash settlement for the plaintiff and against the government, but the plaintiff cannot be paid until the Legislature appropriates the money. This law continues to increase our deficit as the amounts owed continue to stack up as government debts. It is an illegal and unconstitutional law, because in this situation the Legislature infringes on the judiciary in its constitutionally guaranteed right to make cash awards.

Roger Ludwick is wrong. Every jurisdiction in the United States has similar provisions, either in their statutes, or case law, or both.

Governance by rule of law is a hallmark of a republic. What Roger would substitute is rule-by-judges. That is not the American system.

All over our nation, states and territories are suffering grave economic problems. Unlike their instrumentalities and municipalities, the sovereign states and territories cannot declare bankruptcy.

It is a function of a sovereign people through their elected representatives that they allocate scarce resources.

If we had become an independent nation, we could have printed money and “solved” the problem that way, through inflation. But instead, we delegate this problem to the political branches for solution.

Having judges make appropriations, dictate employment cuts, and raise taxes would be the true violation of separation of powers.

The Ludwick complaint will eventually fail as a matter of law, whether at the trial court level or on appeal.
