San Diego 

Firm Culture:  I feel like its a silly question lol, but when did you ladies start dress shopping?


Just to ensure you have enough time to allow for alterations and I guess to allow time to order things in...other things I havent considered, etc haha. Whats a good time frame to work with?
Ive been engaged since late Aug 2012, and the wedding will be Feb 2014, at first I thought id wait until about mid 2013 before I started thinking about it. But time flew by and im getting excited!


I have in my mind the type of dress shape and silhouette. I have began to search the style online and I have a magazine clipping of what im looking for too.


So do you think its still a litte early for me to organise the first dress shopping expedition? Or wait a few more months?


Also, has anyone had experiences with buying wedding dresses in dudool.com? I fell in love with one of their dresses lol. I love such style.





Thanks, any advice, stories or discussion on your first dress shopping expeditions welcomed!

State of the Union

The State of the Union address last night marked the official start of the second session of the 109th Congress (2005-2006). In his speech, President Bush said:

Keeping America competitive requires an immigration system that upholds our laws, reflects our values, and serves the interests of our economy. Our Nation needs orderly and secure borders. To meet this goal, we must have stronger immigration enforcement and border protection. And we must have a rational, humane guest worker program that rejects amnesty ... allows temporary jobs for people who seek them legally ... and reduces smuggling and crime at the border.

While the President did not specifically call on Congress to pass comprehensive immigration reform this year, he did announce the American Competitiveness Initiative, an effort designed to encourage innovation in the U.S. economy and to give American students "a firm grounding in math and science." According to a White House press release, Bush's strategies for achieving American competitiveness include "attracting and retaining the best and brightest to enhance entrepreneurship, competitiveness, and job creation in America by supporting comprehensive immigration reform."

Although President Bush did not specifically mention the need for additional visas to recruit and retain global talent, he discussed the need for the U.S. to excel in the areas of "physical sciences" and "nanotechnology, supercomputing, and alternative energy sources." According to some estimates, more than half of the graduate students in physical science programs at U.S. universities are from outside the country.

Guest Worker Reform

In recent weeks, the immigration bill that has sparked the most discussion is Senator Arlen Specter's package. Senator Specter (R-PA), Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, has yet to introduce the bill, but has assembled a "Chairman's mark," a legislative package containing provisions from bills sponsored by Senate Republicans John Cornyn (R-TX) (S. 1438), John McCain (R-AZ) (S. 1033) and Chuck Hagel (R-NE) (S. 1916 through S. 1919). The Chairman has also received substantial input from the public and private sectors.

The exact provisions of the Chairman's mark are not final. However, it is expected that the package will include a temporary guest worker visa with a market-based formula to determine the appropriate annual quota, exemption from current numerical limitations for nonimmigrants and immigrants in the science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields, removal of the bar on immigrant intent for foreign students, and mandatory electronic employment eligibility verification.

Chairman Specter has publicly expressed his plan to "mark-up" a comprehensive immigration reform bill, containing enforcement and guest worker provisions, in March 2006.

Border and Interior Enforcement

On December 16, 2005, the House of Representatives passed the Border Protection, Antiterrorism, and Illegal Immigration Control Act of 2005 (H.R. 4437). Highlights of the bill and amendments include:


Requiring all employers to participate in a mandatory electronic employment eligibility verification system, and to verify new as well as existing workers.
Increasing the fines against employers who hire ineligible workers or commit eligibility verification paperwork violations. Fines for paperwork violations would range from $1,000 to $2,500. Fines for hiring ineligible workers would be set at a minimum of $5,000 for a first offense, $10,000 for a second offense, and $25,000 for third and subsequent offenses. Monetary penalties would be capped at $7,500 for first offenses, $15,000 for second offenses, and $40,000 for all subsequent offenses.
Designating unlawful presence or an immigration status violation as a criminal as well as a civil offense. The covered offenses could reasonably be interpreted as including visa overstays. Providing assistance to out-of-status individuals could be considered an act of harboring an illegal immigrant.
Authorizing the Department of Homeland Security to initiate pilot programs to eliminate processing backlogs.
Eliminating the Diversity Visa Lottery.
Requiring the removal of an undocumented immigrant upon his or her first conviction for driving while intoxicated.

Other senators have also introduced immigration enforcement bills. Senator James Inhofe (R-OK) introduced the "Engaging the Nation to Fight for Our Right to Control Entry Act" or ENFORCE Act (S.2117) on December 15, 2005. In general, the Act would provide additional resources for immigration enforcement at the border and the interior (including construction of a border fence). The bill would restrict citizenship by birth to persons born to at least one U.S. citizen or permanent resident parent. In addition, the bill would require the Commissioner of Social Security to notify an employer in instances of a social security number "no-match" provided by an employee. The employer would be required to terminate the employee if he/she fails to correct the information within ten days of notification. ENFORCE also calls for state and local authorities to be granted the authority to enforce immigration laws.

Senator Pete Domenici (R-NM) introduced the "Border Security and Modernization Act of 2005" (S.2049) on November 17, 2005. S.2049 would increase funding for personnel at the Departments of Justice and Homeland Security and for technology at the border. The bill would also increase the penalties for various immigration violations. Other provisions of interest include the cancellation of a foreign national's visa if he/she violates its terms, and the expansion of Section 243(d) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) to allow the Department of Homeland Security to deny entry of persons from countries that do not accept deportees from the United States. Current law allows the State Department to refuse visas to nationals of such countries.

In the event that the Senate chooses to go to conference with the House on only the enforcement provisions, it is unlikely that the Senate would act on any guest worker bill this year, and the impact that this would have on a narrow fix for highly educated workers remains to be seen.

Competitiveness and Innovation

Several members of the Senate regard the mobility of highly educated workers as an issue that ties closely to innovation and competitiveness, and view it as a separate matter from guest worker reform. This view is consistent with President Bush's State of the Union message on competitiveness.

Two bills recently introduced in the Senate address the issue of visas for highly educated workers. Senators John Ensign (R-NV) and Joe Lieberman (D-CT) introduced the National Innovation Act of 2005 (S.2109) on December 15, 2005. Although the bill does not specifically provide for visas for foreign talent, it does contain a provision reforming U.S. immigration laws to accommodate the need to retain foreign talent graduating from U.S. universities with master's or higher degree in one of the STEM fields.

Senators Domenici, Jeff Bingaman (D-MN), Lamar Alexander (R-TN) and Barbara Mikulski (D-MD) introduced the "Protecting America's Competitiveness Edge Act" or PACE Act on January 26, 2006. PACE would create a nonimmigrant visa category (F-4) for doctoral candidates studying in the STEM fields, and would provide lawful permanent residence to any F-4 visa holder who remains in the U.S to work. The bill also exempts from the current numerical cap foreign nationals who have earned a master's or higher degree in a STEM field and who have worked in this field for at least three years. Also exempt from the cap are foreign nationals of extraordinary ability or those who have received a national interest waiver, and any immediate relative (which includes spouses, minor children or parents) of a foreign national admitted on an employment-based visa.

01-25-2006

USCIS recently posted a new guidance memorandum on its website and amended the Adjudicator's Field Manual to provide an alternate definition of "American firm or corporation" for purposes of INA Sec. 316(b), the statutory provision that provides that absences from the United States for a continuous period of one year or more shall break the continuity of residence required to qualify for naturalization, with limited exceptions including employment by certain American firms or corporations abroad. The memo also indicates that the standard of proof in most administrative immigration decisions is the "preponderance of the evidence" standard. Both changes are the result of the designation by USCIS Acting Deputy Director Robert C. Divine of a recent AAO decision as a so-called USCIS adopted decision.
