Review for American Immigration Council, Washington, DC, USA
AIC is a leech of the American Immigration Lawyers Association. They act like they are a separate organization but that is simply a legal fiction. They demand the chapters donate a large percentage of their yearly budgets to AIC, then hit up the AILA membership for more and never acknowledge the contributions those members were already forced to make through their chapters. At the annual conferences they always hold a "golf tournament" whereby members fork over $300.00 to play a round of golf, and give them free recordings of the sessions they missed (from the Annual Conference, recordings that are overpriced and not given free to regular AILA members). It’s all about money to pay their bloated salaries of their top staff. They have been a dismal failure at achieving immigration reform, but hey, if we only gave them more money that would change. Now AIC is in the "free vacation" business for their staffers, with an upcoming trip to Italy! AIC is a failure.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Completely sever their ties to AILA. If they are so great, they can stand on their own and not reply on forced contributions.
