Amnesty, which has been granted seven times in the US, is a controversial subject regarding illegal immigration laws. America has had a long-standing problem with workers who cross its borders illegally to find higher paying work than what is available in their home country.
There are many factors responsible for the illegal immigration problem. The US has a long border that is hard to police. In addition, there is high motivation for workers to risk the dangerous border crossing because of the relatively high potential reward for those who do make it across.These undocumented workers then stay inside the US and generally work hard to make a living despite the lack of official government support. Some people who have studied the worker’s predicament suggest amnesty as a solution.
What do we mean by amnesty as applied to the problem of illegal immigration?
In 1986 a blanket amnesty bill was passed for the first time ever in the United States of America during Ronald Reagan’s term s president. The Immigration Reform and Control Act or IRCA was seen as a solution to the illegal immigration problem
Lawyers undoubtedly are one of the most prestigious professions these days and the demand for these professionals are exponentially increasing with each passing day. But it doesn’t necessarily mean that anyone can aspire to make a name for themselves in this profession.
If you are looking to hire one of these professions, there are certain qualities which you should look forward to. These qualities are:-
Good communication skills: Needless to say, professionals in the legal field should be both articulate orally as well as have proper written communication skills. In order to place their argument with judges and juries, having necessary public speaking skills are imperative. In addition to this, they also should have good writing skills because they will need to prepare several legal documents from time to time. But that’s not all, in order to properly analyse and solve their client’s problems; they should also be a good listener.
Proper judgement: Every professional in this field should be able to draw conclusions on the basis of the information they have. From properly spotting loopholes in the opposition’s argument to considering judgements based on
Laws are peculiar in their own ways and for the reasons best known to the judicial system of India. The experiences faced with the real life are presented here to understand the gravity of the problems faced by the people.
In a cheque bounce case, the court postponed the hearing on several occasions for one or other reason. Each time, the banker promptly attended the case as a witness to the duel.
When a bank filed a suit for recovery of the delinquent loan, the defaulter was not summoned first, but the plaintiff was asked to give a declaration. Moreover, this hearing also took place after adjourning earlier for the reason the judge went on leave. In another incident, the hearing was deferred to another date when the witness did not turn up.
It is regrettable that the witnesses are examined as if they are involved in the offense, frauds or embezzlement. They are made to stand for hours together. Moreover, the hearings are adjourned without any valid reasons thus forcing them to attend the court on different dates, sometimes even spread over several years.
What is a fiscal amnesty?
Fiscal Amnesties have been widely used for the rehabilitation of fiscal sinners. Amnesty means forgiveness idea with the message that we send. But what it actually forgives?
A government amnesty declared when there is that it shows a weakness in itself. Amnesty it is necessary to be declared in cases where tax evasion, undeclared income and the voluntary non payments of fiscal obligations is high level, or when the hidden economy (informal) is spread in a high level. Amnesty declared when taxpayers’ collaboration with administration is low and corruption in has become a disease threatening the society and country. Given these indicators, but others can recognize that each birth was an urgent need to orient it on the path of tax evasion and tax formalization by the government. All fiscal amnesties have provided their basic pay of all taxpayers or unpaid obligations stemming from fiscal audits. In these cases, the outstanding obligations are paid with the fees allowed to the time when fiscal obligations are born. The job of fiscal administration for taxpayers to become aware of their obligations should be the launching Vanguard AF, filling the information gap that may
The term “Immigration Law” is a very broad one since it deals with a number of concerns such as visas, citizenship, marriages, adoptions, deportations and green cards. People tagged as “immigrants” would normally include people who either trying to get a green card or would like to come to the US in order to study, tour, or work. There are different visa applications and each one of them has a special and separate set of rules, regulations, guidelines and process or course of action. Because of this, travellers could often get confused over the different criteria. This is where the expertise of an immigration lawyer comes in handy.
Countries issue visas for different purposes. There are visas for tourists, for students, and for those who would like to work. According to the US Immigration and Nationality Act, a minimum of 140, 000 employment-related immigrant visas are currently available. These are divided into 5 categories or preferences. There is also a separate visa available for those who are related to a US citizen either by affinity or consanguinity. At the same time for US citizens who are looking forward to adopt a kid who is not a US
Most members of rule-of-law groups seeking to uphold our immigration laws and ensure border security have failed to understand that their leaders are following a 56+ year failed policy solution known as “Attrition.” Or that such false solution supports and approaches are leading the nation toward a bitter defeat that will result in “amnesty” or “path to citizenship rewards” for some 12 to 24 million felony perpetrating illegal aliens.
If passed, an amnesty is expected to cost the nation a minimum of $4 trillion that must be added to the skyrocketing national debt. Additionally, illegal immigration is expected to quadruple as would-be-immigrants around the world learn that America has essentially embraced an open borders policy. As tragic as this all is, it does not compare to the reality that top US intelligence and defense agencies have classified and prohibited the release of information regarding border trespass by potential and real terrorists-now a factual and major growing threat that is all but guaranteeing a major domestic terrorist event and the death of millions of Americans at the hands of our enemies.
Terrorist have no problem using the black market systems of illegal immigration to access the US
Immigration amnesty is the process where persons living in the US are granted legal immigration status subject to meeting some requirements. If you entered the US illegally or you came to the US legally but overstayed your visa, you may qualify for immigration amnesty. But what is important to note is that not all illegals qualify for this amnesty program. It is mostly granted to a particular group of people and to those who have not committed any other illegal activity other than being in the country illegally.
The Congress has occasionally passed legislation that paved way for specific groups of persons to immigration amnesty. Though we cannot come to a conclusion about the exact number of illegals, it can be roughly estimated to be around twelve million. Immigration amnesty has always had opposing viewpoints. Supporters of this are of the view that blanket amnesty should be granted to all illegals if they have not have committed any other crime. Their conception is that if all the persons who are in the US illegally were removed, the United States will be in for some serious economic setbacks.
Coming to the other side of the coin, those
The first part of this post may seem patronizing, but in fact it represents my true thoughts. In my opinion the people of Mexico are for the most part some of the finest people in the world. The majority of the Mexican people I know are bright, hard working, diligent, kind and generous to a fault. The majority of people of Mexican descent who reside in this country, legally, make great additions to our nation.
Some problems with amnesty are that we don’t really know how many illegal immigrants actually reside in this country but we do know that less than half of the illegal immigrants are Mexican. We don’t know how many illegal immigrants came here while trying to escape the law in their own country, we don’t know how many came here in order to engage in criminal activities, we don’t know how many came here in order to harm this country and no matter how hard we try to check them out, there is no way to do a proper job of clearing all of them.
Another problem with amnesty is that by granting any type of amnesty we are in effect rewarding
This program aimed at increasing tax revenue was the objective:
a. Repatriation to Italy of asset values and outside the country;
b. Disclosure of these assets, without the need for repatriation.
Under the program required the payment of individuals equal to 2.5% of declared asset value (in exchange for payment of 2.5%, the state would give the treasury bonds as 12% of the total declared value of the asset). The individual also had to meet, a statement of special confidence and to deliver to an Italian bank or intermediate, with certified to make the final for the individual asset fiscal authorities. Although this program is still continuing and had not be from November 2001 to May 2002, it resulted in some effects on the budget being certified billions in this way and many assets of individuals and encouraged volunteerism in the statement through a clear and practical legal. Similar measures have been undertaken and the statements of individuals with activity within the country.
IRS- (agency for revenue collection in USA) announced in December 2002 that it had revised and updated a standard practice that helps the investigative agencies in determining the case for certain individuals,
The study of the history of Piracy and Pirates can be studied from the viewpoint of many vocations; including, technological, sociopolitical, or criminological. However piracy and pirates can also be look at through a legal perspective. The relevance of study piracy from the prism is best illustrated by consider what piracy and pirates are. Piracy was a crime, a violation of the law. Pirates are a class of criminals whose primary crime was piracy.
As piracy is a crime their must be in existence specific laws on the subject. Like all criminal laws the laws regarding piracy serve to define what actions or combination of action or omissions would constitute piracy. Like all laws the laws relating to piracy have a source. The Source for laws includes custom, statue and treaties. The law also provides for finality. Laws sometimes have exceptions the exception to the general law om piracy is privateering. Finally the law of piracy provides procedures for the prosecutes pirates and for the alleged pirate to defend against those charges.
II. Law of Piracy and its sources.
Regarding the law defining piracy; Their are many laws on piracy however it
It doesn’t take a voluminous theological treatise, a long list of scripture references, an introduction, three points, accompanying illustrations and a conclusion to say all that needs to be said on this subject. All it takes is just a few words spoken by Christ.
Jesus said “Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones; for I say unto you, that in heaven their angels do always behold the face of my Father which is in heaven.” (Mt 18:10)
Starting with only the word ‘despise’ we are called to attention. Have the words hate and despise ceased to be synonymous in the fantasy land of political correctness? While America tip toes around trying not to offend with a slip of the tongue against some minority, gender group or other modern club of the over sensitized how is it that we overlooking this huge hypocrisy.
Is it OK to hate the unborn? Of course we would say abortion isn’t hatred but we all know that when someone steps up in our face and says “I hate you” we can always turn away and go on living. If they say “I am going to kill
The Bible tells us we are free from the curse of the law. In Galatians chapter 3, it calls the law our “schoolmaster” and tells us it was necessary to bring us to Christ, but that after faith we are no longer under a schoolmaster.
Does this mean we are exempt from the law?
Many were trying to take the simple message of faith in Jesus to bring them back into bondage of obedience to the law for salvation. The apostle Paul made it clear that those who are of works are under the curse because no one is justified by the law.
But what was the purpose of the law then?
It was added because of transgressions until the Christ appears. The law set standards to show us that we fall short and need a Savior. It sounds like we are exempt from the law. So are we not bound by its rules?
The law was not given that we could possibly obey all points. It was to show us that we practice unrighteousness. We are not saved according to the law, either in obedience or in disobedience. We are saved in
Amnesty International calls on the United Nations to impose an immediate and complete embargo of arms to Hamas Israel and other Palestinian armed groups. The human rights organization issued a report previously regarding the foreign arms supplied to help Israel and Gaza, where she claims to have gathered evidence that Israel and Hamas both of the weapons used abroad, and specifically the United States between December 27 and January 18, the date of the cessation of fighting. We call upon the Security Council of the United Nations to impose an embargo Until they found a mechanism to ensure that ammunition and other military equipment are not used to commit serious violations of international law, said Malcolm Smart, Amnesty director for the Middle East.
At the site, we found many remains of weapons and ammunition used during the fighting. Through serial numbers, we could determine their origin, with the exception of an electrical component (missile engine) produced in France, while the rest came from the United States, said Donatella Rovera. The researcher for Amnesty International visited the site to investigate different types of violations of human rights in the Gaza Strip. Just arrived, was surprised by the number
There sure are a lot of opinions, and a lot of politics that go along with immigration law, and it seems to be changing very rapidly recently. As you know we have a lot of challenges in Mexico with the drug cartels, and some of these groups use “mules” or human drug runners to bring in their illegal contraband into the US. The drug cartels are also bringing in human cargo, as coyotes fill up vehicles with illegal immigrants bringing them over the border.
Many states have had enough, and they want the borders sealed off from illegal immigrants. Others say that folks need to come to the United States so they aren’t killed by the very cartels which have caused the biggest part of the problem. Some folks in the United States are upset because illegal immigrants will work cheaper and folks say they take away jobs for Americans. It doesn’t really matter how you feel about the subject when it comes to immigration law, we have laws on the books.
No, not all those laws are being enforced to the letter of the law, but the laws still exist. That’s where the debate comes
Not since the parsing of “what the meaning of is is” by President Clinton has Congress had such a challenge. Now the solons are nit-picking “amnesty” – what to do with 12 million illegal immigrants doing menial labor that Americans will not.
President Bush proposes to regulate the inflow of aliens and their drain on government social services. This while accommodating needed manual labor with a “guest worker” program and ultimate citizenship.
California, New Mexico Arizona and Texas are confused – nothing new – about what to do with Mexicans sneaking across the border. For the most part, illegals are hard working and law abiding. Though they give full value in labor, they cling to the culture that drove them to flee and can not function without coddling language.
Until this year, illegals kept a low profile. Then, by prodding from the U.S. Communist Party, they reached critical mass with street demonstrations.
Such protests promoting “immigrant rights” (a stunning oxymoron) are self-defeating for those who steal into a country and claim squatter rights. Traffic signs, ballots and public documents must be printed in Spanish to accommodate Hispanics who will not, or cannot, assimilate.
I don’t know how many times I have heard different speakers on the subject of immigration opining on cultural assimilation as if, well it’s a requirement to be a good citizen or resident. And usually the argument goes, “well if they come here and get assimilated and learn to speak English and…. “. What does this cultural assimilation thing mean anyway? If I could harbor a guess, I would say it means something like this – “Hey, do not bring your cultural practices here, this is America so just fall in line.”
Hardly anyone that migrates to another country wants to completely lose their sense of where they came from, their culture. People are basically what they know and what almost everyone knows culturally is what they have experienced and lived from they were born. So this thing about people being assimilated into the culture so that we can all seem like one in behavior and belief is not going to happen. I am an immigrant and I do like the fact that the US is founded and operates on laws and principles. But I am not going to just one day wake up and forget my

A Civil Lawyer is one who solely focuses on civil law only and has no role to play in the criminal cases and proceedings. Civil law consists of areas like family law, probate, intellectual property law, taxation laws, business, real estate, personal injury law and others. The law relating to civil wrongs and quasi-contracts are part of the civil law. Civil law covers any type of legal case that is unrelated to criminal activities or criminal law.
Civil lawyers differ from criminal lawyers in that criminal lawyers defend the defendant against criminal charges while a civil lawyer handles non-criminal litigation. Their job requires them to present evidence and argue in civil court to support their clients. Civil law involves a private party, which could be an individual or company, that wishes to file a lawsuit against another party and therefore becomes the plaintiff. The burden of proof falls on the plaintiff to prove its case. His job involves presenting cases before judges, deciphering laws and rulings for individuals, companies and organizations, negotiating settlements of legal disputes, investigating legal data, formulating legal briefs, filing legal appeals in higher courts on the behalf of their clients.
