Reducing fees and asking to ease travel restrictions are both reasonable and the US should honor these two simple requests.

The CW1/2 program will be implemented the same as the original plan. This is a well thought out set of regulations that answers our unique situation. It will protect contract workers from the labor abuse of the broken CNMI labor system. After immigration fraud and investor visas are sorted out, which could be just after 2011 or at least by 2014, the US will make workers here permanent residents. To think the US will do this immediately with so many freelancers operating business here and employing themselves is unrealistic and will not happen.

The major resorts and 10 largest companies here employ about 2k CWs. The DOI will want to know how many of the other 20k (22k sign-up – 2k HANMI and major employers staff) are employed. DHS is also responsible for eliminating the foreign owned businesses that did not comply with investor visa law.

The idea of opening Guam to labor applications from unemployed persons here could have merit and is worth pursuing as well.
