As I have written in a couple of previous posts, www.immigrantconnect.com will be the URL for Maged Rost, the immigration law firm I run with my partner, Kristina Rost. Absent any last minute glitches, this change is expected to take place tomorrow (Thurday October 9, 2008) night. The new site will include information about our firm as well as videos and other twenty-first century gadgetsthat we believe are appropriate for modern law firms.
With improvement comes growing pains, the problems are twofold: (1) old immigrantconnect blog entries will not be available on the new site, I will try to have them archived and (2) subscribers will need to resubscribe. I will continue writing about developments related to US immigration laws an policy and invite you to keep reading and sharing your opinions. The next year or two promise to be no less interesting than the previous one when it comes to this debate.
Speaking of “debate”, immigration was once again absent from last night’s Presidential debate. Although it is clearly not the most pressing issue with the market collapse and all, it is a good barometer with which to measure the candidates’ integrity and veracity when it comes to what they say before various audiences and what they plan to do. McCain is in the bigger pickle because he wants to avoid offending his right-winged base while appeasing Hispanic voters. However, if the issue is not addressed, all the better for him. Obama has been steadfast in his support for Comprehensive Immigration Reform which would include a pathway to earned legalization for the undocumented.
