No chance of improved status for long-term guest workers this year
Marianas Variety — U.S. Congressman Gregorio Kilili Camacho Sablan says because of the current anti-immigration sentiment in the nation, any legislation granting improved immigration status for long-time guest workers cannot be passed in this federal election year. In an email to Variety, he said he and the Gov. Ralph Deleon Guerrero Torres understand that for some time to come, the demand for workers will be greater than the number of local workers that the commonwealth has. “The governor and I have agreed that I will introduce legislation that matches the proposals he makes in the Section 902 consultations [with the president’s representative],” Sablan said, adding this is also what he has been hearing in the listening sessions that he has conducted with CNMI legislators, local businesses and other constituents. “At the same time, we have to do everything we can to make sure our own local workers have jobs. That is why I authored legislation to track how the CNMI government

He added, “Our school’s caring rules and extracurricular activities mold our students character both physically and mentally, which created











Troop store construction begins, says Congressman Kilili
Marianas Variety — (U.S. Congressman Gregorio Kilili Camacho Sablan’s e-newsletter) - Construction on the 5,000-square-foot expansion of the troop store on Saipan begins this week, according to officials of the Army and Air Force Exchange Service, which runs the store. The $2.8 million expansion project at the Army Reserve Center is scheduled to be completed by late March 2017 with the grand opening in April. “I have been working on improving the troop store since my first term in Congress,” Kilili said. “A study I included in the 2011 National Defense Authorization Act determined the project to be viable, but the expansion was delayed for years while the Navy, which controls the land, made sure there was no unexploded ordnance on the site.” According to AAFES, the Navy has recently given the safety go-ahead and construction can finally proceed. The existing 1,120-square-foot store built in 1987 serves about 4,000 active and reserve service members, retirees, and their fam
