The New York Post is reporting that Piers Morgan, the very British judge of America’s Got Talent is having problems getting approval from USCIS to come and take over Larry King’s coveted seat on CNN’s prime time schedule this fall. The article raises more questions than it answers. It hints at the end that the visa category being sought is not based on extraordinary ability and it also does not say if Morgan is seeking a green card or a non-immigrant visa. It also is not clear if Morgan is actually being denied a visa to come work or if he has conditioned his accepting the deal based on his getting a green card ahead of time. Or perhaps he has a green card application in process and is trying to get that wrapped up before he enters. There are many possibilities and it’s not really fair to point an accusatory finger at USCIS without at least knowing some more.
