I have updated the table of articles by Maya Kara and Bruce Mailman on immigration matters. Their first articles were published in the Marianas Variety and those links no longer work. I've left them on the list, though, in case you want to track down the articles in hard copy.
The later articles are in the Saipan Tribune and those links are now up-to-date.
There is a lot of good information here and I encourage readers interested in the immigration topic in the CNMI to read these articles. I don't always agree with the opinions of Maya and Bruce, but their information on the law is reliable.
