Immigration Integrity Group: Advocating in Support of a Fair, Workable Solution For Immigration Reform

Don Crocetti, a very highly respected former colleague of mine at legacy INS, who subsequently worked for USCIS until he retired from Government service, recently learned of our InsideINS  blog. Don asked me to share some of the insights that he, and other former colleagues who make up the Immigration Integrity Group, have prepared in their support this country’s efforts to reform our immigration laws. This information can be found on Don’s website at

As you will see once you have read this information, there was quite an effort undertaken to advance reform in a balanced, objective, and apolitical manner. While I may not agree with all of the comments and recommendations, I find them very thoughtful and worthy of consideration, and I am hoping they trigger a healthy discussion on the InsideINS blog. You should also feel free to provide comments directly to Don via the survey tab on his Immigration Integrity Group (IIG) website.

  1. Did you ever think you'd see the day when international travelers would be able to enter and depart countries without a visa, paper documents, and in-person inspections without jeopardizing national security and public safety, or impacting the integrity of a country's immigration system? The collection and matching of biometrics, biographic, arrival/departure, and other data, sharing of pertinent information between countries, and the electronic performance of pre-entry background and other checks are critical components; most of which are already available today. One thing we haven't had in the past that makes this such a reality is technology. We simply have to learn how to best engage it, especially as we reform the immigration laws of this country.

  2. It is really amazing for us. Keep up the topic that everyone can choose one of the best. Thanks.


  3. Migrating to a country is a big decision, and a thing not to be taken lightly. Especially a country like Australia where there are numerous opportunities in almost all of its states.
