Kilili proposes immigration delay

Congressman Gregorio C. Sablan says he's introduced legislation to delay the federal immigration takeover from the CNMI until Dec. 1, 2010.

A press release about his bill was posted on his website a few hours ago, I just went by because I hadn't checked it yet.

The action isn't surprising. He's been increasingly concerned with the lack of visible preparation as we get closer to Nov. 28.

"Even the Department of Homeland Security itself has now admitted in written reply to Congress that the Department will not be fully operational in the Marianas until 2011," the release states.

Just a quick blurb; no time right now. Check out the release. His arguments are pretty persuasive.
