How to Become the Next Immigration Ombuds

Immigration Daily says that there are three informal requirements for anyone interested in a presidential appointment to the post of United States Citizenship and Immigration Services Ombudsman:
  1. Be a card-carrying Democrat for at least 5 or 10 years, preferably longer;
  2. Be active in participating in local/state Democratic party; and
  3. Be sponsored by one of the 3 members of their Congressional delegation.
The leading immigration publisher believes that several members of the immigration bar would qualify based on these criteria. The CIS Ombudsman position is co-equal with that of the USCIS Director and is empowered "to really shake things up for immigration benefits." (Immigration Daily.)

The CIS Ombuds position is not currently vacant and no job search has been announced yet. Immigration Daily may have better information.
