Intubation and Incubation: Two Remedies for an Ailing Immigration Agency

"As Justice Louis Brandeis famously observed, “[s]unlight is said to be the best of disinfectants ….”  U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) – the agency within the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) that decides which foreign entrepreneurs, investors, professionals and scientists are allowed to work in America – has chosen to employ other, more recently developed remedies. It has opted for intubation (a means of introducing fresh air into an afflicted body) and business incubation (a way of providing fresh ideas and a supportive, nurturing environment to fledgling, unstable but promising enterprises) as the best ways to cure many of the maladies that chronically sap this nine-year-old agency." - Angelo A. Paparelli and Ted. J. Chiappari, October 26, 2011.
