    BIA’s position on the INA 212 Waiver for lawful permanent residents who adjusted

    in Legal

    BIA’s position on the INA 212 Waiver for lawful permanent residents


    In a recent decision, Matter of J-H-J-, 26 I & N Dec. 563 (BIA 2015), the Board of Immigration Appeals held, An alien who adjusted status in the United States, and who has not entered as a lawful permanent resident, is not barred from establishing eligibility for a waiver of inadmissibility under section 212(h) of the Immigration and Nationality Act, 8 U.S.C. § 1182(h) (2012), as a result of an aggravated felony conviction. Matter of E.W. Rodriguez, 25 I&N Dec. 784 (BIA 2012), and Matter of Koljenovic, 25 I&N Dec. 219 (BIA 2010), withdrawn.


    When Congress amended the immigration laws a few years ago, it disallowed green card holder the ability to cancel deportation if that person committed an aggravated felony. For a number of years now, the various federal circuit courts of appeals struggled with the issue of whether a person who adjusted status in the US is still eligible for a discretionary waiver after committing an aggravated felony.  Most circuits (2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, 7th, 9th, 10, & 11th). The 8th circuit said no, Roberts v. Holder. The 1st circuit has not decided that issue. The BIA in a minor holding said that since most circuits (9 out of 11 said yes it have to create uniformity through the country. If you consular processed for your green card, no waiver is available for an aggravated felony.

The Overcrowded schools with 60 students per class, and the imposition of a new 336 unit apartment building a block away will only detract from the education of our students.  Join us live on the phone at 10:30 am 718-305-6322  or click on and hear the voices of those in protest.(blogtalkradio.com /don-durant)

    Positively Dee for discussion about HIV/AIDS

    in Social Networking

    The show today will be about PrEP and I really want many of you to take part in this discussion. Join us to bring awareness to the community. Historically, the HIV/AIDS epidemic has affected more men than women. However, if new HIV infections continue at their current rate worldwide, women with HIV may soon outnumber men with HIV. HIV infection impacts a growing number of women in Illinois each year. Nearly 7,000 women in Illinois are currently known to be living with HIV and/or AIDS. Many hundreds of other women are probably living with HIV even though they are unaware of their own infection. HIV/AIDS disproportionately impacts African-American women in Illinois and the United States. Nationally, HIV infection is the leading cause of death for African-American women between the ages of 25 and 34. In Illinois, the number of HIV cases among African-American women continues to climb. Roughly 68 percent of Illinois women living with HIV are African American, while African Americans only make up 15 percent of the Illinois population. Caucasian women account for 16 percent of Illinois women living with HIV, while the Caucasian population represents more than 73 percent of Illinois residents. Latina women represent roughly 11 percent of the HIV/AIDS cases in women, while 13 percent of the Illinois population is Latino. Roughly 4 percent of women with HIV are from Native American, Asian, Pacific Islander and other communities. Women in their 30s are the most likely to be living with HIV/AIDS, and almost all Illinois women living with HIV are between the ages of 20 and 50.

    Worldwide Plaza Public Space and Shops - College Info

    in Travel

    Hello,


    Welcome to A Theory of Parenting on Blogtalkradio.com


    My name is Tammi Joyner


    I am your Host for the Show


    Today we are live from 825 8th ave between 49th and  West 50th Street, Two Worldwide Plaza is a post-war skyscraper.  The 39-floor building in Midtown West was completed by William Zeckendorf Jr. in 1989. Today, it is part of a three-building design that stretches an entire block between 8th and 9th Avenue from 49th to 50th Street.


    The building's postmodern exterior is perhaps one of the most remarkable building features. The old-fashioned brick is modernized by a copper roof and glass pyramid at the top. At certain times of the day, the sun hits the sleek rows of windows to the point that the facade shines like metal. Terraces abound in the majority of the 455 apartments, each equipped with granite countertops in modern kitchens, marble baths, and 11-foot ceilings.


    The interior garden courtyard reserved for residents is matched with the mid-block public plaza housing a diverse array of greenery as well a fountain with elaborate statues, and a nearby cafe.
