Zoe Lofgren Letter to DHS Requests Accountability for Visa Bulletin Mess


Jul 12, 2007

I am attaching letters from Congresswoman Zoe Lofgren who is the Chair of the House Judiciary Subcommittee on Immigration, Citizenship, Refugees, Border Security and International Law. Congresswoman Lofgren is serving her seventh term in Congress representing San Jose and Santa Clara. The latest letter addressed to Secretary of Homeland Security Chertoff requests all correspondence related to the Department Homeland Security's decision to suspend its acceptance of adjustment of status applications baed on employment-based immigrant petitions after the Department of State issued an update to the July Visa Availability. We also attach her press statement dated July 3, 2007, where she states:

"I'm deeply concerned by today's updating of the July Visa Bulletin by the Departments of State and Homeland Security. By taking this unprecedented mid-month update, the Departments of State and Homeland Security have seriously undermined the stability and predictability of U.S. immigration law. Thousands of individuals and businesses rely on the monthly bulletins to prepare and plan for the submission of applications. In addition, thousands of dollars in legal fees and other application related expenses are incurred in preparation for filing applications based on the these monthly bulletins." The letters are attached here for you to review. Zoe_Lofgren_Letters.pdf
