Immigration attorney Ted Laguatan and his wife, Josephine flew from California to meet with foreign workers on Thursday evening at the Marianas Business Plaza. Attorney Laguatan from U.S. Pinoys for Good Governance has been informing the foreign workers of their constitutional and due process rights regarding their immigration status.

Last month Governor Fitial referrred to Attorney Lahuatan and Attorney Loida Nicolas-Lewis, chair of U.S. Pinoys for Good Governance "jerks".

I do not have information on the specifics of the meetings. Here are some photographs from Itos Feliciano:

What happened to the ombudsman, Pamela Sue Brown? Is the office open?

I hope this mans trip to Saipan was enlightening and productive. An attorney with no previous CNMI immigration experience isn't likely to impact this case in a dramatic way at this point, since most cases are individual and he isn't likely a NMI bar member.

Even if this guy has no CNMI license isn't it possible to work with another attorney involving any case.
The other thing isn't any Immigration case Federal?

If he is an Immigration attorney I would assume he is licensed to practice in a Fed court. so he would he still need to be licensed with the CNMI bar? Also would he need a CNMI business license?
Also,I would have no doubt though that if this guy was to need an NMI bar license, he would be able to pass the CNMI bar with no problem.
A problem would be opposition from others within.

ALERT! H.R. 1466 was placed in the union calendar No. 217. It is now ready for floor action.

H.R. 1466 would affect 5,000-7,300 legal aliens and not 4,000 as previously reported. Pls see the link!
