Trade NAFTA (TN) Status Pursuant to the North American Free Trade ...
When the North American Free Trade Agreement (“NAFTA”) was implemented on January 1, 1994, the Canada-U.S. Free Trade Agreement (“FTA”) was superceded. The Trade Canada (TC”) category for Canadian professionals, which existed under the FTA, was therefore eliminated. However, under NAFTA Canadian professionals are now eligible for Trade NAFTA (“TN”) status. In addition, under the NAFTA, TN status is now available to Mexican citizens as well. Until January 1, 2004, the processing of TNs for Mexican citizens was very different from TNs for Canadian citizens. Prior to this date, Mexican ... market research, surveys and trends
From Federal Security to Homeland Security: Law, Politics, and ...
Americans listening to one of President Franklin Roosevelt’s fireside chats on a cabinet-sized radio in the late 1930s could not have imagined the eventual birth of the Internet technology used to disseminate this Article. They would have been hard pressed to imagine the spectacular growth of East Asian economies, or perhaps even the fall of the Soviet Union. They might have been just as surprised, however, at what remains the same in the early twenty-first century. For all that has changed over the course of six or seven decades, in many respects Americans today share a common reality with their forebears from the late 1930s. ... market research, surveys and trends

ABA Files Amicus Brief Against Arizona
     PHOENIX (CN) - The American Bar Association filed an amicus brief in support of civil rights groups who challenged the constitutionality of Arizona's new immigration law. The ABA says may increase police officers' racial profiling and detention of citizens, increase the burden on Arizona's court system, and usurps "federal authority to manage and supervise immigration law enforcement matters." The law is slated to take effect July 28.      The 400,000-member ABA says that racial profiling will be used to enforce the law, regardless of its claims to ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Cybersecurity's Bipartisan Spirit Challenged
Bipartisanship has been the hallmark of information technology and IT security laws enacted by Congress for decades, but the words and actions of some lawmakers last week suggest that the cooperation between Democrats and Republicans may not be as strong on all things cybersecurity as in the past. Remarks by Sen. John McCain, R.-Ariz., and legislation introduced last week by two Republicans, Kit Bond of Missouri and Orrin Hatch of Utah, are at odds over a bill approved by the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee that would give much of the day-to-day responsibility to assure civilian agencies IT systems ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Statutory Authority of Homeland Security
    There are two major pieces of legislation which constitute the statutes that provide homeland security with its authority -- the U.S.A. Patriot Act of 2001 and the Homeland Security Act of 2002 .  In addition to these, there are important other presidential directives (PD), homeland security presidential directives (HSPD), executive orders (EO), and public laws (PL).  Antiterrorism Law is discussed elsewhere, so this section deals primarily with settled homeland security law.  The law in this regard has many new developments, and a few places to keep track of it all are the Center ... technology research, surveys study and trend statistics

President Obama, Commander in Chief of the Coast Guard too ...
Some ones answer to a question "Liberals seem to think that Obama is responsible for dispatching the Coast Guard when a situation comes up." I thought President Obama was. I knew he was. Then why do cons keep saying he waited a week to respond when the Coast Guard was there within hours? 2 months ago Yes, the Commander in Stupidity is their Chief too. Of course, when one is trying to have the government take over every aspect of daily life there is no better way than to give the bleakest of pictures and claim that “only” government can fix the problem. At least we now know his “leadership” style. Crisis management. Create a ...
