Coming Soon!

Thanks for taking a first look at INSideINS even while we’re under construction. We intend this website to be a public forum where we can share our knowledge and opinions about immigration policy and border enforcement, and where we will invite others to do the same. We hope to be up and running in the next few weeks.

In the coming months, our country will once again try to address what is widely described as our "broken" immigration policy. For those who have been a part of the federal immigration agencies during any of the past five decades, it must seem like a recurring dream or nightmare, depending on your view.

Tens of thousands of past and present employees have lived and worked with the enormously complex immigration issues that have faced the federal government, but, until now, no forum existed for their opinions. Indeed, employee organizations and other unofficial voices have been stifled lately, and their voices ignored in the decision making process, even as the policy debates have grown louder publicly. INSideINS intends to provide a place where those voices can be heard, where employees can express and share their views and engage in a dialogue on relevant issues - if nothing else, INSideINS will be a release valve for the wide breadth of knowledge and experience within the ranks of those who have ever been on the front lines of our country's immigration policy.



In a very timely and shocking comprehensive report, The Partnership for Public Service has identified the best federal agencies to work at in 2012. Interestingly enough, their report has recognized that the Department of Homeland Security, (the parent agency of “INS”,) ranks dead last in over all work place matters of importance. They have also noted that this is a position that Homeland Security and its component agencies held last year as well, and only further solidified its’ hold on THE “WORST” place to work this year.  This finding corresponds with and bolsters our belief that much of the discontent among employees within the various “INS” activities stems from being left out of the communication process of addressing the issues and concerns that face the agency. Hopefully, our efforts to provide a forum here at INSideINS will release some of those pent up frustrations and provide for worthy ideas and communications to surface.
