New BIA Green Initiative -- Recycle Board Members

A.G. Eric Holder has appointed John H. Guendelsberger as a "new" member of the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA). The same Mr. Guendelsberger that John Ashcroft removed (along with many others) from the BIA during the purge of 2003. Since that time he has been Senior Counsel to the BIA Chairman (ever notice that people in the government seem to never really get fired?). At any rate, that the Bush administration generally and John Ashcroft wanted him gone speaks well of him -- so welcome back. Sorry to those other applicants who might have actually thought they had a shot at landing that job, however. You apparently didn't. There is one more opening left though -- (maybe Lori Rosenberg will apply).
