Immigration reform dead; retrogression may come sooner after all

The proposed immigration reform bill is essentially dead, at least for now. Last Thursday's 46-53 vote in the U.S. Senate sent the bill back to the shelves to be re-opened probably not until its biggest supporter, President George Bush, leaves his office next year after the US Presidential elections.

Meanwhile, the American Immigration Lawyers Association, announced that the US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) may revise the July visa bulletin and change the status for employment-based visa preferences. The Hammond Law Group, which is a member of the organization, says the government agency might retrogress most if not all of the employment-based visa categories with the revision.
