    Governor feels the burn of Cigar-gate
    By Michael R. Blood, Associated Press

    06/02/2007

    LOS ANGELES - Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger fired up a stogie during his trip to Canada this week, but did he break U.S. law to do it?

    The celebrity governor known for his love of premium cigars was headed to the Ottawa airport Wednesday when his motorcade made a detour to a hotel. There, Schwarzenegger picked up a Cuban Partagas cigar in a shop, with the $14.83 bill paid by an aide traveling with him, the Ottawa Citizen newspaper reported.


    Under trade restrictions, U.S. citizens are prohibited from buying Cuban cigars anywhere in the world.

    Schwarzenegger's office wouldn't confirm or deny that the governor indulged in a forbidden smoke while in Canada, where he was on a trade mission.

    "He stopped and bought a cigar and smoked it on the way to the airport," spokesman Aaron McLear said.

    Was it a banned Cuban cigar?

    "There's no way of telling now because he smoked it," McLear said.

    A message left at the shop wasn't returned Friday.

    Americans convicted of violating trade regulations can be sentenced to fines or prison, but it wasn't clear Friday if a U.S. citizen had ever been prosecuted for lighting a Cuban cigar in another country. Cuban cigars are imported into Canada legally.

    "Persons subject to U.S. jurisdiction are prohibited from purchasing or importing Cuban cigars, regardless of where they are," U.S. Treasury Department spokeswoman Molly Millerwise said in a statement.

    The long-standing U.S. ban on prized Cuban cigars hasn't stopped a black-market trade, and numerous Internet sites offer cigars for sale purporting to be from Cuba.

    Schwarzenegger favors costly Daniel Marshall cigars with personalized labels, but he has told Cigar Aficionado magazine he enjoys Cohibas and Montecristos, legendary brands from Cuba.

    Schwarzenegger wants immigration reform to keep foreign talents

    California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger said on Monday that a comprehensive immigration reform should carefully consider California's need for foreign talents in innovation-based industries.

    In a letter to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, Schwarzenegger urged them to "carefully consider the critical issues that affect the burgeoning innovation economy in California while developing comprehensive immigration reform that strengthens our borders and develops a practical way to deal with the undocumented residents who are already here".

    "My greatest concern, though, is with the proposal for a new points-based 'green card' system designed to encourage the immigration of workers with training and skills in key areas," he said.

    He voiced opposition to "replacing the current employer-based system, where companies can identify the specific skills needed and sponsor qualified immigrants, with an untested system run by the government," saying a replacement "threatens the very foundation of the program and must be amended."

    "I strongly urge the Senate to retain an employment-based application process and consider authorizing a smaller points-based pilot program prior to any wider implementation," said the governor.

    He said California's world-class higher education system and many of its leading industries benefit from foreign-born talents.

    "The demand for skilled professionals with training in math, science and engineering far exceeds the supply of young people in the U.S. education system currently pursuing degrees in these areas.Improving the math and science education pipeline is one of our top priorities, but it will be years before we see the results of our efforts."

    The U.S. Department of Labor has projected that between 2004 and 2014 there will be nearly one million new jobs in math and computer sciences - the fastest growing professional sector in the U.S. economy.

    "These highly-skilled workers are needed today to fill these jobs," Schwarzenegger said.

    "California's knowledge-based businesses are the most innovative in the world and have fueled much of our nation's economic growth over the past decades. From the birth of the personal computer, to today's mobile technologies, these sectors have changed how we all live," said the governor.

    "To remain globally competitive, these industries must have the skilled workers they need and be able to draw from a pool of foreign talent. Although I support the bill's effort to increase temporary H-1B visas it is critical that the annual level be based on the actual workforce needs of these sectors and not an arbitrary cap."

    Schwarzenegger said the current caps of 65,000 for skilled professionals and 20,000 for holders of advanced degrees have proven to be far less than what is needed.

    "Future levels for these visas must be based on the demands of the market or this policy will strangle these important industries, forcing them overseas," he said.

    The H-1B program must also be enforced in a way that does not impose unnecessary, costly administrative burdens on law-abiding U.S. businesses, he said.

    "I am concerned that the current bill may make the H-1B program harder to administer, especially for smaller businesses, such as technology start-ups, and force these companies to consider moving critical functions, including product development, to facilities offshore," he noted.

    Of course he will veto it. If they implement the Real ID, there are provisions in it for giving license to illegals. No need for new laws when the Real ID already provides for the illegals.
