So, a little wink, wink, nod, nod let s export our surplus population, re-equilibrate around a lower level of population and things will be easier. In such a policy regime, I wouldn't advocate for "encouraging out-migration". Ideally, New Brunswick could have a public discussion about how to benefit from out-migration.

SIEGEL: The president added that Speaker of the House John Boehner had told him that a vote on ant immigration legislation would not happen until after the November elections.

Holy Discontent Towards American Immigration Policy. Holy Discontent Towards American Immigration Policy. Casting a compelling vision is obviously vital to strong leadership, but Bill asks the question of where such vision comes from. He looks to Moses, whose interaction with God at the burning bush Exodus 3 catalyzes his own move into leadership to free the Hebrew people from oppression in Egypt. That vision, though, did not start at the burning bush; it starts a chapter earlier, when Moses sees one of his people being abused by an Egyptian and erupts with frustration: he can’t take the injustice any longer. At the burning bush, Moses finds that his discontent intersects with the heart of God, who tells Moses, “I have indeed seen the misery of my people in Egypt. buy xanax without prescription buy tramadol online As I interacted with various leaders throughout the weekend—primarily pastors of Spanish-speaking churches—my sense was that there is a corporate feeling of discontent with the status ...

The reaction from many has been positive because, while it is not a perfect measure, the legislation makes huge strides toward creating a more workable immigration system, including a path to citizenship for the 11 million undocumented immigrants already in the U.S. Washington Post editorial board writes.

The immigration debate just shouldn’t raise the kind of moral and philosophical issues that plague public policy debates like abortion and euthanasia. Immigration, like abortion and euthanasia, is being used as a wedge issue in the current health care reform debate. The actual process of reforming our broken immigration laws really shouldn’t have much of an emotional charge to it. Once you get over that hurdle, then the debate is really about details—how do you create a process, what are the requirements, who is eligible, should there be fines, what will it cost and countless other details. It’s the very incivility of his action that makes it so emblematic of the immigration debate, which has devolved into personal rather than policy issues. Until we confront the issue of immigration reform ...

Some political observers insist that this really isn’t a convenient time for Congress to take on the issue of immigration reform. Bush told Americans that Washington was going to fix a broken system and pair up willing workers with employers in need. When Congress did take up the issue years later there were those who insisted that it wasn’t a good time because, with the economy doing well and the unemployment rate at about 4 percent, the immigrant population was so large that there was a high level of anxiety over shifting demographics, a changing culture, proliferation of foreign languages, etc. And the argument has shifted again and become that this really isn’t a good time because jobs are scarce.

Texas Republican Lamar Smith pushes pro-illegal immigration bill. The Arizona law — along with every other state law on the subject — would be preempted under the bill. The Supreme Court held that cooperative immigration enforcement, with the states and the federal government working together to restore the rule of law in the workplace, was permissible under current federal law. But Smith’s bill would change federal law so that the states can no longer take any actions against employers who knowingly hire unauthorized aliens. Lamar Smith’s anti-enforcement bill between National Review ‘s Mark Krikorian and Andrew McCarthy. On June 19 at National Review’s The Corner, Kobach replied to that debate. And Mark has long fought the good fight for better enforcement of our immigration laws from his position at the helm of the Center for Immigration Studies. Mark is usually right on the money. But in this debate, it is Andrew who is in the right. First, Mark asserts that “only the federal ...

Passenger from Mexico arriving in Spain. There are perhaps no better circumstances, or cases, for stronger immigration laws in the United States of America when one looks at the recent outbreak of the swine flu. Most nations do not have regulatory commissions, Centers for Disease Control, or Food and Drug Administrations. Therefore what may or may not be ingested in a foreign country certainly could have long-standing, if not fatal repercussions in the U.S.A. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are on high alert tracking swine flu cases throughout North America and the world. Spain was the first European country to confirm a case of swine flu, in an announcement earlier Monday. Suspected cases from New Zealand to Israel were raising concern that the new virus was spreading rapidly. For more of the story click here ...

... The Toothless Immigration Law. This new law does not allow an officer to check documentation for the following reasons: 1. Garcia's documentation?" How does the officer answer that. Garcia could not produce a valid driver's license, then that means you, my American friend, can now be detained for up to 48 hours until proof of your citizenship is attained if you lose your license and drive anyway.

*  .. Obama’s New Offensive Immigration Play Seeks to Defend Gains .. COMMENTS .. He's Going to Need
Obama told the groups what they had been dying to hear—that he was going to condemn House Republicans for inaction and set the most expansive legal course permissible to beef up border security, slow deportations of noncriminal aliens, and provide legal status to millions of undocumented workers—all by himself. The pro-immigration groups at the meeting were elated to hear the president was finally willing to take action without Congress. But the party balloons of the White House guests quickly lost their helium as Obama popped them right there in front of them when he turned to the unaccompanied alien children crisis on the border. Obama, according to those present, would have none of it. Even children in America who live in dangerous neighborhoods would like to live somewhere else, but he can’t solve everyone’s problems. It will be interesting to watch this unfold and see if the House authorizes the money he requested to speed up child deportations and secure the border, knowing that he ...

Nonetheless, hour by hour, day by day, week by week, illegal immigration dribbles into our country at a rate of four people per minute. “Armed encounters with narcotics smugglers have been an on-going law enforcement problem since 1989 when traffic briefly ceased with military support on the Borders. “Through the years, the Border Patrol and Pima County Deputies have tried to control the area and have seized tons of narcotics, arrested many armed smugglers and have been shot at and assaulted,” Slagle said. “What makes this area so vulnerable for smuggling drugs and human cargo?” I asked. “Citizens traveling in vehicles are often "run" off the road at any hour of the night by smugglers with cargoes of illegal aliens or contraband drugs,” Slagle said. From this interview, it is apparent that troops on the border effectively stopped illegal drugs ...

*  Inequality within immigrant families in the United States
... 2 Family members who are legal citizens and thus have access to a wider range of employment opportunities may therefore hold a greater measure of power within the family. Thus, the unequal access to employment opportunities can generate inequality among family members of different legal statuses. Immigrants may find that they are a part of a lower socioeconomic status group in the United States than they were in their home country. Among many immigrant families, members of the younger generation tend to assimilate to American culture at a faster rate than members of older generations. These divides can also occur between members of the same generation, particularly between older siblings who may identify more strongly with their home country and younger siblings who may identify more with American culture. This is especially likely to occur when older siblings belong to the 1.5 generation, meaning that they were born abroad, and younger siblings were born in the United States. In many immigrant ...

Illegal immigrants are crowding border again. Chargers. Padres. The number of illegal immigrants detained at San Diego's border crossings spiked last week for the first time since Sept. In the four months after the attacks, inspectors at the ports detained fewer than 300 illegal immigrants per week, compared with between 950 and 1,100 per week last year. In January, however, that number began climbing, with 937 illegal immigrants being detained last week. Immigration officials caution that it's too early to say that illegal immigration is on the upswing again because the number is still low for January, when migrants typically begin returning to their U.S. Adele Fasano, the Immigration and Naturalization Service district director in San Diego, said the number of illegal immigrants detained last weekend was still almost 70 percent lower compared with the same weekend last year.

*  Citizenship, co-ethnic populations and employment probabilities of immigrants in Sweden
... Show full item record. Citizenship, co-ethnic populations and employment probabilities of immigrants in Sweden. Over the last decades, Sweden has liberalized its citizenship policy by reducing the required number of years of residency to 5 years for foreign citizens and only 2 years for Nordic citizens. Interestingly, the employment integration of immigrants has declined gradually, and in 2006, the employment rate for foreign-born individuals is substantially lower compared with the native-born. The aim of this paper is to explore the link between citizenship and employment probabilities for immigrants in Sweden, controlling for a range of demographic, human capital, and municipal characteristics such as city and co-ethnic population size. In this paper, we used instrumental variable regression to examine the “clean” impact of citizenship acquisition and the size of the co-immigrant population on the probability of being employed. In contrast to Scott 2008 , we find that citizenship acquisition has a ...

Britain Will Be ‘Swamped’ by TB Unless High-Risk Immigrants Are Routinely Given Blood Tests, Experts Warn. A leading doctor has warned that Britain will be ‘swamped’ by tuberculosis unless new measures to diagnose the disease in immigrants are introduced. Rising immigration has seen a surge in cases in the last 20 years. Under current rules, new immigrants from countries where TB is common are required to have chest X-rays before being allowed into Britain. He told The Times: ‘The tide has been coming in for 20 years, it’s been getting bigger and bigger and if we don’t do something we will be swamped with TB as we were 100 years ago.’. Professor Davies and his peers recommend that people from the Indian subcontinent and sub-Saharan Africa, where rates are highest, should be given the blood test when registering with a GP. If we screen for latent TB we would eliminate the majority of cases of people coming into this country. ‘TB is a disease usually associated with certain high-risk ...

(1/1974) Cancer incidence in the south Asian population of England (1990-92).

Cancer incidence among English south Asians (residents in England with ethnic origins in India, Pakistan or Bangladesh) is described and compared with non-south Asian and Indian subcontinent rates. The setting for the study was areas covered by Thames, Trent, West Midlands and Yorkshire cancer registries. The study identified 356 555 cases of incident cancer (ICD9:140-208) registered between 1990 and 1992, including 3845 classified as English south Asian. The main outcome measures were age specific and directly standardized incidence rates for all cancer sites (ICD9:140-208). English south Asian incidence rates for all sites combined were significantly lower than non-south Asian rates but higher than Indian subcontinent rates. English south Asian rates were substantially higher than Indian subcontinent rates for a number of common sites including lung cancer in males, breast cancer in females and lymphoma in both sexes. English south Asian rates for childhood and early adult cancer (0-29 years) were similar or higher than non-south Asian rates. English south Asian rates were significantly higher than non-south Asian rates for Hodgkin's disease in males, cancer of the tongue, mouth, oesophagus, thyroid gland and myeloid leukaemia in females, and cancer of the hypopharynx, liver and gall bladder in both sexes. The results are consistent with a transition from the lower cancer risk of the country of ethnic origin to that of the country of residence. They suggest that detrimental changes in lifestyle and other exposures have occurred in the migrant south Asian population.  (+info)

(2/1974) Biochemical indices of osteomalacia in pregnant Asian immigrants in Britain.

Serum calcium, phosphate and alkaline phosphatase, and urinary calcium excretion were examined during the second trimester of uncomplicated normal pregnancy in Asian immigrants to Britain and in local Caucasians. The mean serum calcium was significantly lower in Asians than in Caucasians, and the mean serum alkaline phosphatase was significantly higher in Asians. The geometric mean of the urinary calcium excretion was highly significantly lower in Asians than in Caucasians. The variances of the serum calcium, serum alkaline phosphatase, and urine calcium excretion did not differ significantly in the two populations. This indicates that there is a shift in values of immigrant Asians as a group compared with Caucasians. A comparison with figures obtained on normal nonpregnant persons of both suggests that the shift is not an inherent feature of the Asian population.  (+info)

(3/1974) Ancestral Asian source(s) of new world Y-chromosome founder haplotypes.

Haplotypes constructed from Y-chromosome markers were used to trace the origins of Native Americans. Our sample consisted of 2,198 males from 60 global populations, including 19 Native American and 15 indigenous North Asian groups. A set of 12 biallelic polymorphisms gave rise to 14 unique Y-chromosome haplotypes that were unevenly distributed among the populations. Combining multiallelic variation at two Y-linked microsatellites (DYS19 and DXYS156Y) with the unique haplotypes results in a total of 95 combination haplotypes. Contra previous findings based on Y- chromosome data, our new results suggest the possibility of more than one Native American paternal founder haplotype. We postulate that, of the nine unique haplotypes found in Native Americans, haplotypes 1C and 1F are the best candidates for major New World founder haplotypes, whereas haplotypes 1B, 1I, and 1U may either be founder haplotypes and/or have arrived in the New World via recent admixture. Two of the other four haplotypes (YAP+ haplotypes 4 and 5) are probably present because of post-Columbian admixture, whereas haplotype 1G may have originated in the New World, and the Old World source of the final New World haplotype (1D) remains unresolved. The contrasting distribution patterns of the two major candidate founder haplotypes in Asia and the New World, as well as the results of a nested cladistic analysis, suggest the possibility of more than one paternal migration from the general region of Lake Baikal to the Americas.  (+info)

(4/1974) The cost effectiveness of strategies for the treatment of intestinal parasites in immigrants.

BACKGROUND: Currently, more than 600,000 immigrants enter the United States each year from countries where intestinal parasites are endemic. At entry persons with parasitic infections may be asymptomatic, and stool examinations are not a sensitive method of screening for parasitosis. Albendazole is a new, broad-spectrum antiparasitic drug, which was approved recently by the Food and Drug Administration. International trials have shown albendazole to be safe and effective in eradicating many parasites. In the United States there is now disagreement about whether to screen all immigrants for parasites, treat all immigrants presumptively, or do nothing unless they have symptoms. METHODS: We compared the costs and benefits of no preventive intervention (watchful waiting) with those of universal screening or presumptive treatment with 400 mg of albendazole per day for five days. Those at risk were defined as immigrants to the United States from Asia, the Middle East, sub-Saharan Africa, Eastern Europe, and Latin America and the Caribbean. Cost effectiveness was expressed both in terms of the cost of treatment per disability-adjusted life-year (DALY) averted (one DALY is defined as the loss of one year of healthy life to disease) and in terms of the cost per hospitalization averted. RESULTS: As compared with watchful waiting, presumptive treatment of all immigrants at risk for parasitosis would avert at least 870 DALYs, prevent at least 33 deaths and 374 hospitalizations, and save at least $4.2 million per year. As compared with watchful waiting, screening would cost $159,236 per DALY averted. CONCLUSIONS: Presumptive administration of albendazole to all immigrants at risk for parasitosis would save lives and money. Universal screening, with treatment of persons with positive stool examinations, would save lives but is less cost effective than presumptive treatment.  (+info)

(5/1974) Impact of diet on lead in blood and urine in female adults and relevance to mobilization of lead from bone stores.

We measured high precision lead isotope ratios and lead concentrations in blood, urine, and environmental samples to assess the significance of diet as a contributing factor to blood and urine lead levels in a cohort of 23 migrant women and 5 Australian-born women. We evaluated possible correlations between levels of dietary lead intake and changes observed in blood and urine lead levels and isotopic composition during pregnancy and postpartum. Mean blood lead concentrations for both groups were approximately 3 microg/dl. The concentration of lead in the diet was 5.8 +/- 3 microg Pb/kg [geometric mean (GM) 5.2] and mean daily dietary intake was 8.5 microg/kg/day (GM 7.4), with a range of 2-39 microg/kg/day. Analysis of 6-day duplicate dietary samples for individual subjects commonly showed major spikes in lead concentration and isotopic composition that were not reflected by associated changes in either blood lead concentration or isotopic composition. Changes in blood lead levels and isotopic composition observed during and after pregnancy could not be solely explained by dietary lead. These data are consistent with earlier conclusions that, in cases where levels of environmental lead exposure and dietary lead intake are low, skeletal contribution is the dominant contributor to blood lead, especially during pregnancy and postpartum.  (+info)

(6/1974) mtDNA analysis of Nile River Valley populations: A genetic corridor or a barrier to migration?

To assess the extent to which the Nile River Valley has been a corridor for human migrations between Egypt and sub-Saharan Africa, we analyzed mtDNA variation in 224 individuals from various locations along the river. Sequences of the first hypervariable segment (HV1) of the mtDNA control region and a polymorphic HpaI site at position 3592 allowed us to designate each mtDNA as being of "northern" or "southern" affiliation. Proportions of northern and southern mtDNA differed significantly between Egypt, Nubia, and the southern Sudan. At slowly evolving sites within HV1, northern-mtDNA diversity was highest in Egypt and lowest in the southern Sudan, and southern-mtDNA diversity was highest in the southern Sudan and lowest in Egypt, indicating that migrations had occurred bidirectionally along the Nile River Valley. Egypt and Nubia have low and similar amounts of divergence for both mtDNA types, which is consistent with historical evidence for long-term interactions between Egypt and Nubia. Spatial autocorrelation analysis demonstrates a smooth gradient of decreasing genetic similarity of mtDNA types as geographic distance between sampling localities increases, strongly suggesting gene flow along the Nile, with no evident barriers. We conclude that these migrations probably occurred within the past few hundred to few thousand years and that the migration from north to south was either earlier or lesser in the extent of gene flow than the migration from south to north.  (+info)

(7/1974) Distribution of haplotypes from a chromosome 21 region distinguishes multiple prehistoric human migrations.

Despite mounting genetic evidence implicating a recent origin of modern humans, the elucidation of early migratory gene-flow episodes remains incomplete. Geographic distribution of haplotypes may show traces of ancestral migrations. However, such evolutionary signatures can be erased easily by recombination and mutational perturbations. A 565-bp chromosome 21 region near the MX1 gene, which contains nine sites frequently polymorphic in human populations, has been found. It is unaffected by recombination and recurrent mutation and thus reflects only migratory history, genetic drift, and possibly selection. Geographic distribution of contemporary haplotypes implies distinctive prehistoric human migrations: one to Oceania, one to Asia and subsequently to America, and a third one predominantly to Europe. The findings with chromosome 21 are confirmed by independent evidence from a Y chromosome phylogeny. Loci of this type will help to decipher the evolutionary history of modern humans.  (+info)

(8/1974) Cancer mortality in East and Southeast Asian migrants to New South Wales, Australia, 1975-1995.

Routinely collected data for New South Wales were used to analyse cancer mortality in migrants born in East or Southeast Asia according to duration of residence in Australia. A case-control approach compared deaths from cancer at particular sites with deaths from all other cancers, adjusting for age, sex and calendar period. Compared with the Australian-born, these Asian migrants had a 30-fold higher risk of dying from nasopharyngeal cancer in the first 2 decades of residence, falling to ninefold after 30 years, and for deaths from liver cancer, a 12-fold risk in the first 2 decades, falling to threefold after 30 years. The initial lower risk from colorectal, breast or prostate cancers later converged towards the Australian-born level, the change being apparent in the third decade after migration. The relative risk of dying from lung cancer among these Asian migrants was above unity for each category of duration of stay for women, but at or below unity for men, with no trend in risk over time. An environmental or lifestyle influence for nasopharyngeal and liver cancers is suggested as well as for cancers of colon/rectum, breast and prostate.  (+info)


Anyone of you who knows someone with scar on the lungs who passed the Canadian immigration?


  • I have an agony now if i will pass the medical examination of Canadian immigration because the doctor told me that I have scar on my left lungs suspected with inactive PTB before. Honestly, I dont feel anything wrong in me. They asked me to undergo Sputum test. Is it possible on my case even I passed it, they will reject my application for immigrant visa?
  • hello sir, one of my frnd gone thru same problem and after they tested inactive TB and sputum test they passed the immigration medical. you don't worry you will pass. Iam 100% sure..


What happens if an intersex person does not have a gender identity?


  • I assume it will be pretty difficult, like in immigration forms, passports and things. You need to specify a sex. If an intersex person does not associate with either gender, what happens?
  • Yes it would be very difficult. Some forms now have an 'other' form for gender. However I guess they would have to tick the box they identify most with. ...


What is the chance I will test positive for tuberculosis?


  • I am going overseas shortly and am required by immigration to take a tb test, and I'm wondering if there is a chance I will test positive for it. My paternal grandfather had tb and my father apparently tests positive whenever he has been tested for it because he has the antibodies. I am wondering, because of the family history, if I will test positive for a skin test or chest x-ray for Tb. Any help's appreciated.
  • Not unless you were exposed to your grandfather. And your father probably has a latent TB which is in no way contagious. Of course you could have been exposed to someone else like someone at school and get a positive test but chances are, when you take the xray it will most likely be negative.


17 year old wants to move out and follow her dreams in the united states?


  • I dont want her to do this-yet- she says she is 17 and that she is legal to move out. I HOPE there is some immigration law that says she needs to have parental approval, because she certainly doesnt have mine.If she were older and wanting to attend university in the states I would be more in favour. What are the legalities of my teen-attempting to school in the states-so i can make her aware that it will not happen-until she is an adult?
  • In the US, you're an adult when you turn 18. Even though I am not seeing anything on the US' immigration website about age limits, I assume that she'd need your authorization when filing for an immigrant or nonimmigrant visa. Nonimmigrant visas are easy to obtain, but they wouldn't allow her to live permanently or work in the United States. They're temporary - more for travel. She'd need to apply for an immigrant visa and the requirements are much stricter. According to the State Department's website: "In general, to apply for an immigrant visa, a foreign citizen must be sponsored by a U.S. citizen relative(s), U.S. lawful permanent resident, or by a prospective employer, and be the beneficiary of an approved petition." In other words, she'd need an employer or citizen/permanent resident in the US to sponsor her visa. That individual or organization would file a visa petition on her behalf. She can file one abroad in her home country, but they're limited, and she'd have to check with the US Embassy to learn more. If she doesn't have a job lined up or an American friend or relative who would be willing to sponsor her, then she'll have great difficulty getting an immigrant visa. And without one of these visas, she wouldn't be able to work and support herself. If she had been admitted to a university in the US, the school would have helped her obtain a visa for her education. I honestly think this is the best route if she wants to move to the US. At some point after living here for a while, she'll want to get a green card that would establish her permanent residency in the US.


How do I make my girlfriend give birth to a Harp Seal?


  • I would like a baby Harp Seal as a pet. But due to laws and immigration and things, I can't, it is apparantley illegal... And smuggling is also apparently shunned in my community. So instead I wish to make my girlfriend give birth to one! Any help on how to go about this would be greatly appreciated! Thanks Harp Seal lover. P.S. Is my fridge enough room for it to live in?
  • is this a serious question? how old are you? you should never be allowed to leave your house if this is how u think. you must be socially retarded.. or just a dumbass in general. i dont even know why im wasting my time with such stupidity


Any interest in a consortium to grow and refine sugar cane into methanol in Mexico & Central America?


  • Brazil is doing amazing things with sugar cane. Is it not possible to provide great jobs and opportunities for our neighbors to the south while producing a vitally important energy source? We could solve some pollution, immigration, poverty,and energy problems without government intervention, and probably make a tidy profit doing it. Not to mention free rum for the shareholders!
  • This is the beer, wine and spirits area and your question is really about business development. Try posting it in the Business and Finance area.


What would be involved in bringing in a relative from another country for cancer treatment?


  • I have a 16 month old cousin in Bangladesh who was recently diagnosed with cancer. The quality of health care there is very poor. I would appreciate any information on how to go about bringing them into the country in order for the child to receive proper medical treatment. Would immigration officials look at this as a special case in circumlocuting the standard immigration process?
  • Most major US medical centres have a department to help people coming to the US for medical care. This would not be immigration, just a temporary permission. Here's an example: http://www.mgh.harvard.edu/international/english.htm


What can a person do when they have a lot of anger and they feel they might snap someday?


  • Sometimes I feel so angry and I think that most white people are racist and hate me for being Latino. I don't know but like the littlest things like anti-immigration makes my blood boil and I can relate to those people you see on tv who go on rampages. Is this normal?
  • If you've ever gotten into trouble for something you did when you were angry, it's already gone too far, and you should make an appointment with a behavior health professional to tell him exactly what your concerns are. But if your anger is bothering you, and obviously it is, you should tell that to a behavioral health counselor anyway. It's good that you are as self-aware as you sound, but a professional will be more able to help you develop positive ways to deal with your feelings. I'm white and I don't see someone's being Latino as a reason to hate someone. I can tell you (if it helps) that people don't think about us *nearly* as much as we think they do. As for rioting, I don't recommend it. There are sections of cities near where I live where riots took place 30-40 years ago, and to this day those areas are still burned out, and some of the participants were put in prison for a long time. You really want to avoid getting a criminal record. But let's not even go there. Talk to a counsellor. It's the smartest thing you can do. Good luck. And we can change our feelings. I used not to believe that, but a counsellor taught me that it's really true.
