"I am not sure what "the “thin blue line” of law enforcement" is - according to the PR that's where the name of the campaign comes from."

That's what the Internet is for, you can quickly find out:
https://secure.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/wiki/Thin_Blue_Line
"The Thin Blue Line is a colloquial term for police and police forces, derived from The Thin Red Line", which in turn, as Wikipedia also tells us, "was a famous military action by the British Army's red-coated 93rd (Highland) Regiment at the Battle of Balaclava on October 25, 1854, during the Crimean War"

It has been widely reported in the media that USCIS is proposing to utilize certain rule-making administrative actions (NPRM procedures) to initiate CIR absent legislative action. Apparently a DRAFT internal memorandum titled "Administrative Alternatives to Comprehensive Immigration Reform" has been circulating. Will anyone on the USCIS Blog Team be able to comment on the authenticity of the memorandum in question? Further, if authentic, when does USCIS propose to initiate the NPRM process and changes to the regulations?

Thank you.

The link to the subject memorandum is listed below:

Senator Grasley from IA is the culprit to make this draft memo about admin fix out this senator made the lives of H1B visa holders hell, by influencing USCIS to make the infamout Jan 19th 2010 Memo whcih makes lot of un necessary and stupid RFEs, This Grasley should never win elections again. How can a confidential draft can get in to the media. this anti immigrant and prtectonist senators should be defeated in next election.

Senator Grassley is working closely with the nativist group NumbersUSA, a member of eugenicist John Tanton’s network of anti-immigrant organizations, in an effort to use the leak of this draft policy memo to destroy any chance of immigration reform that remains this legislative session. The leak came just as Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) proposed a constitutional amendment to revoke birthright citizenship, which could lead to the deportation of citizen children of undocumented parents.

The leak of the draft memo, which was written in April, followed a letter in June from the same group of GOP Senators warning President Obama not to enact administrative reforms in lieu of comprehensive immigration reform. The release of the June letter shows that Grassley and NumbersUSA had the draft memo then and were holding on to it until its release would have maximum political impact.

This political idiots makes the life of innocent families miserable that too Educated people from India. Legal Immigrants who pays tax as good as US citizen and everything legal This idiot Grassley should be defeated in next election.

To find out more about this epidemic, go to - http://www.redlightchildren.org/

While this focuses on Cambodian children, it's happening all around the world. It's shameful what happens to these children and I sincerely hope that more people will help those on the front lines to protect them...

What the heck is wrong with people? Human trafficking is sick and worthless! We need serious reform in laws to make these people pay. Execute these people in public to make a serious statement. Thanks,Rob

I agree with the previous commenter though: not only the general population will remain clueless as to how they can help with the problem, but also might be too scared to step up.

Human trafficking and political corruption go hand in hand. This is what I have been learning in my research on human trafficking. In order for this organized illegal activity to continue, there have to be people in the government who are being paid to look the other way. If this is true in Asia, Eastern Europe and other places, doesn't it follow that it must me going on right here as well?

I don't think its as easy to spot as some of you make it sound. These guys do what they can so they are not uncovered... But I agree, we should make the fines/penalties more so they have less of a reason to do this. Theres not much worse then this.

Human trafficking should be stop right now. I disagree with Gabby, there is so much more in what they still can do for working on this matter.

Human trafficking has been going on for centuries - it is a thorn in the flesh that has to be stopped - political interference abets it - this campaign will help a lot.
