BREAKING NEWS: 240-day grace period for CW renewals finalized
WASHINGTON, D.C.—The U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security, Jeh Johnson, has signed the final rule allowing CW-1 workers in the Northern Mariana Islands to keep working, if their permit renewal has been delayed. The rule will be published officially in the Federal Register on Friday, Jan. 15, and becomes effective 30 days later. It is available for public inspection at the Federal Register website. When effective, the rule will provide a 240-day grace period for CW workers to continue working, if an application for a new permit was filed before the old permit expired and if the new permit is still awaiting approval. “It is about time,” Delegate Gregorio Kilili Camacho Sablan (Ind-MP) said. “The disruption to the Northern Marianas economy, the lost income for businesses and workers—that is still going on—would have been completely avoided, if USCIS had not waited over a year and a half to finalize this rule. “The law extending federal immigration to the Marianas specifically











Kilili inspects CW processing center in California
Saipan Tribune- WASHINGTON, D.C.—Delegate Gregorio Kilili C. Sablan (Ind-MP) made a snap inspection of the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service’s California Service Center last Thursday. The center handles all the applications for CW foreign workers in the Northern Mariana Islands. Delays in processing there, as well as a large number of applications submitted with less than the recommended 90 days lead time, have resulted in CNMI businesses cutting hours and in lost income for employees of those businesses—both foreign and U.S. workers. “The CW applications represent only 2 percent of the total workload of the California Service Center,” Sablan said. “But what is of small importance to their overall operation is of huge importance to the people I represent in the Northern Marianas. I wanted to make that point clear by making a personal inspection of the center.” According to USCIS officials, all application for CW permits that expired on Dec. 31 have been taken out o











THIS WEEK IN CONGRESS - January 8, 2016
In this issue: Republicans want to cut insular Medicaid Another sign of recovery Opportunities - Federal grants, jobs for/in the Marianas Highlights in the legislative program __________________________________________________________________________ Republicans want to cut insular Medicaid. President Obama vetoed today Republican legislation that cut Medicaid funding for the Northern Mariana Islands by an estimated $26 million. Medicaid for the other insular areas — American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands — would also have been cut. The vetoed bill passed the House this week with Republicans all voting to cut insular Medicaid funding, Democrats all voting against it. I worked very hard to get that money into the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare. It increased NMI Medicaid from about $50 million to $158 million through the period ending in 2019 — a three-fold jump. That money has been essential to keeping the Commonwealth Health Center open after the C











Kilili attends last Obama State of the Union
Marianas Variety — WASHINGTON, D.C. (Office of the CNMI Congressional Delegate) — U.S. Congressman Gregorio Kilili Camacho Sablan joined his colleagues in the U.S. Congress tonight to witness President Obama deliver his final State of the Union address. Congressman Sablan issued this statement following the State of the Union: “The people of the Northern Mariana Islands gave me the incredible opportunity to be a witness to history — to see our first African American president sworn in to office and now to hear him talk to America about the road we traveled over the last seven years and where we can go from here. “In some ways the history of this president matches the recent history of the Northern Marianas. We, too, people of color, gained representation in our national government that we had never had before. We, too, had to struggle back from a great economic recession and today see a brighter future ahead. “President Obama has been good for the people of the Northern Mar
