New Government Report: Protecting Classified Information (CI) and the Rights of Criminal Defendants

Protecting Classified Information (CI) and the Rights of Criminal Defendants: The Classified Information Procedures Act

by Edward Liu, Todd Garvey
Paperback, 11 pages, 2011, $10.00
ISBN: 1437984312

A criminal prosecution involving CI may cause tension between the government’s interest in protecting CI and the criminal defendant’s right to a constitutionally valid trial. In some cases, a defendant may threaten to disclose CI in an effort to gain leverage. Concerns about this practice, referred to as “graymail,” led Congress to enact the Classified Info. Procedures Act (CIPA) to provide uniform procedures for prosecutions involving CI. Contents of this report: Background; The CIPA: Pretrial Conferences, Required Notice, and Appeals; Protective Orders and Security Clearances; Discovery: Brady and Jencks Material; Depositions; Admissibility of CI: Substitutions; Confrontation Clause and the Silent Witness Rule. A print on demand report.

New Government Report: Diversity Immigrant Visa Lottery Issues

Diversity Immigrant Visa Lottery Issues

by Ruth Wasem
Paperback, 14 pages, 2011, $15.00
ISBN: 143798486x

The purpose of the diversity immigrant visa lottery is to encourage legal immigration from countries other than the major sending countries of current immigrants to the U.S. Current law weights the allocation of immigrant visas heavily toward aliens with close family in the U.S. and, to a lesser extent, toward aliens who meet particular employment needs. The diversity immigrant category was added to the Immigration and Nationality Act to stimulate “new seed” immigration (i.e., to foster new, more varied migration from other parts of the world). Contents of this report: Background: Legislative Origins; Eligibility Criteria; Trends in Source Countries; Demographic Features; Legislative Issues. Charts and tables. This is a print on demand report.

The Coast Guard manages a broad $27 billion major acquisition portfolio intended to modernize its ships, aircraft, command and control systems, and other capabilities. Previous reports have discussed the Coast Guard’s significant acquisition challenges, including project challenges in its Deepwater program. They identified problems in costs, management, and oversight, but also recognized several steps the Coast Guard has taken to improve acquisition management. This report: (1) assessed Coast Guard capabilities to manage its major acquisition programs; and (2) determined the extent to which the Coast Guard leverages DoD and other agency contracts or expertise to support its major acquisition programs.
