2 guidelines and policies, and development of management infrastructure including but not limited to data collection and monitoring. May 2009 October 2013 Federal Labor Ombudsman Office of Insular Affairs, U.S. Department of the Interior Washington, DC - US Reference: Joseph McDermott, Deputy Director, Policy Division Since returning to this position in 2009, I and my staff of four caseworkers/interpreters have assisted over 7,000 aliens with immigration, labor, law enforcement and trafficking grievances. Of those assisted, close to 500 were identified as victims of trafficking. Translating and interpreting services within the office, for law enforcement, social services providers, and administrative and judicial proceedings was provided to close to 7,000 aliens. I assisted over 1,000 alien victims obtain social services and benefits. In 2009, we counted aliens residing in the CNMI and other data mandated by Congress for an Interior report on the implementation of P.L In three weeks, with as little disruption as possible to the normal operation of employers, businesses, and the aliens lives, we counted over 21,000 aliens. This number and the other data formed the basis for the Interior report to Congress in May 2010 as well as to the leaders of the CNMI government. It also formed the basis for the recommendations on the potential future immigration status for consideration of Congress. In 2010, I organized and managed a Forum of Economic and Labor Development (FELD) in the CNMI, attended by over 150 representatives of the business community and government. The goal of the forum was to identify the training needs of U.S. eligible workers for employment and to lessen the reliance on alien workers. The resulting FELD report was delivered to Congress and the CNMI government. It also lead to OIA s creation of a $1,000,000 on- the- job FELD grant program which was focused on training U.S. eligible workers in tourism, agriculture, aquaculture, manufacturing and construction as well as the basis of employment place expectations. In 2009, I continued our membership in the CNMI Human Trafficking Intervention Coalition (HTIC) and was elected co- chair in I also joined the Coalition of Federal Ombudsman in I attended numerous trainings including COFO training, anti- trafficking training, immigration, labor, employment law, discrimination law and law enforcement trainings over the past four years to guarantee my knowledge of any changes to laws affecting my duties as the Ombudsman as well as to present the knowledge I had. I also sit on the board of directors for the Pacific Regional Approach to Anti- Trafficking, a joint effort of the Departments of Justice, State, Interior and the National District Attorneys Association with its mission being nurturing and supporting anti- trafficking programs in the freely associated states and nations Page 2 of 11

3 of Micronesia. In 2011, citing the State Department s 2010 Trafficking In Persons Report s recommendation that in order to maximize the United States efforts to combat trafficking, ombudsman offices should be established throughout the Pacific, my geographic responsibilities was expanded to include the Territory of Guam. In order to establish operations, I made numerous trips to Guam to develop working relations with federal and local law enforcement and service agencies as well as NGO s, the faith based community and other social service providers. In 2011, I obtained secret security clearance in order to access the office for my initial operations within the U.S. District Attorney s office. In 2011, my duties were again expanded to include those of OIA s Field Representative which meant keeping abreast of all the major challenges facing the CNMI. Besides the challenges, it is also rewarding to enhance by good working relations with all those trying to meet these issues with little available resources. Through tireless efforts, innovation and creative partnering many of the challenges are being resolved. Much of the work of the Ombudsman requires a great deal of sensitivity to cultural nuances as well as the needs of the aliens and business community as well as law enforcement concerns. I have built lasting relationships with our federal partners at Labor, Justice, State, HHS, DHS, Defense and EEOC as well as their existing CNMI counter parts. I also meet regularly with the Governor, Lt. Governor and members of the Legislature as well as their respective staff. I fortunately have very cordial relations with the staff of the U.S. Congressional oversight committees as well. October 2006 January 2008 Executive Director United States International Mission Garden Grove, CA - US Reference: Dennis Catron ( ) Executive Director of international NGO focused on anti- trafficking in humans programs and missions in SE Asia, Africa and United States. Directed activities of several chapters throughout US, Europe, SE Asia as well as coordinated fundraising efforts to support rescue missions, establish shelters for trafficking victims in US, Africa and SE Asia and rehabilitation training and educational programs. Responsible for overseeing budget, personnel and programs related to the mission of NGO. More information is available regarding the work of USIM at December 2003 January 2006 Attorney General Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands Reference: Juan N. Babauta ( ) As the Attorney General, I was responsible for the overall functioning of the Attorney Page 3 of 11

4 General s Office including the administration of the AGO; personnel management; managing the criminal investigative unit; administering the CNMI immigration system and border control system; providing legal services to all agencies, departments, and instrumentalities of the Commonwealth government; representing the Commonwealth in civil litigation, and criminal prosecution. I also worked with the governor s office, his cabinet, various local agencies and members of governmental bodies in dealing with a wide range of legal and policy issues concerning the CNMI. I was responsible for working closely with Federal enforcement agencies including negotiating an agreement with Department of Homeland Security, State Department, Justice Department and Department of Interior to establish and implement a refugee protection program to fulfill the United States treaty obligations in the CNMI under the United Nations anti- persecution and torture treaties. Other federal agencies with which I had close working relations were the Military Sealift Command, Department of Defense, Department of Labor and Department of the Treasury. Included in my duties was regular reporting to the Office of Insular Affairs within the US Department of Interior, the US House Resources Committee and the US Senate Energy Committee on progress being made to reform the immigration and labor systems within the CNMI. Such reports were not only instrumental in informing the federal government of the situation within the CNMI but also provided the basis for an increase in federal grant money awarded for these activities. My reporting responsibilities also entailed regular meetings with members of the Bush administration and US Congressional members and staff. Additionally, I was the liaison with the pertinent ministries of the People s Republic of China regarding labor, immigration and authorized destination status (ADS). My negotiations lead to the signing of two important agreements with the PRC, one regarding ADS for the CNMI and the other regarding background checks for all Chinese citizens entering the CNMI. Another successful agreement was entered with the Ministry of Commerce for cooperative enforcement of workers rights for Chinese workers in the CNMI. I negotiated a similar agreement with the Republic of the Philippines which protected Philippine workers within the CNMI. Part of my responsibilities as AG was the promulgation of regulations, negotiating government contracts, case investigative assignments, case management in both the civil and criminal divisions, personnel matters, legislative initiatives and budgetary matters. I managed over thirty attorneys and 300 staff with an annual budget of over $7,000,000. As AG, I participated in a number of conferences, enforcement actions and litigation as a member of the National Association of Attorney Generals. February 2002 December 2003 Governor's Legal Counsel Page 4 of 11

5 Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands Reference: Juan N. Babauta ( ) As the Governor s Legal Counsel, I was responsible for advising the governor on various legal and policy issues including budget authority, personnel matters, immigration and labor reform, refugee protection negotiations, legislative review, and utilities regulation. I also performed background checks on various administration appointees and worked closely with Federal agencies such as the DEA, FBI, ICE, ATF, Federal Ombudsman, and U.S. Attorney s Office. During my tenure, all labor and immigration procedures were codified in regulations and standard operating procedures. During this period, the most historic accomplishment in which I was directly involved as lead negotiator for the Commonwealth was entering an agreement with the US Department of Interior, as lead federal agency. In 2002, negotiations between the CNMI, U.S. Department of Interior, U.S. Department of Justice, and the U.S. Department of State and later the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and United Nations High Commission for Refugees established a refugee protection program within the CNMI that complied with the U.S. treaty obligations under the United Nations Protocols Against Persecution and Convention Against Torture. Extensive training programs provided to the CNMI as well as continuing consultation with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services office provided the CNMI with a realistic, workable program. During my tenure as the Attorney General, this system included advisement of the right to refugee protection to each and every alien facing removal from the CNMI whether in the form of exclusion or deportation. During this time period, the system worked to the satisfaction of not only the CNMI but also the federal government who provided consistent and prudent oversight of the program. August 2001 January 2002 Managing Lawyer Law Offices of Pamela Brown Of Counsel Teker, Civille, Torres and Tang Reference: Patrick Civille ( ) I managed the local office for the law firm and served as local counsel for the class action law suit filed by garment workers against factories and retailers. I was responsible for gathering testimony and other evidence pertinent to the claims filed by the class in the U.S. District Court for the Northern Mariana Islands. The settlement of this case was vital to the establishment of an independent monitoring system to insure the safety and rights of the alien garment workers. May 1999 July 2001 Federal Labor Ombudsman Office of Insular Affairs, U.S. Department of the Interior Washington, DC US I was hired by the U.S. Department of Interior as the first Federal Ombudsman for the CNMI. Congress charged this office with responsibility for assisting aliens within the CNMI. The Page 5 of 11

6 position was left open- ended but received funding directly from Congressional appropriations. The mission of the office was: to liaison between Federal and local enforcement agencies; assist aliens with immigration, labor, civil rights, and tort claims arising within the CNMI; maintain a data system regarding alien client contacts; and advise Congress regarding the alien population s situation and needs within the Commonwealth. Not only was I tasked with the hiring and management of case workers, administrative staff and translators, I was also charged with setting up the physical office, the data management system and budget system. In this position, I met with local elected and appointed officials and their Federal counter- parts to attempt to reach workable solutions to the myriad of problems regarding aliens in the CNMI. I also contributed to Federal reports on the alien worker conditions within the CNMI, testified before Congressional delegations and individual Congressional members. Assistance to aliens took many forms from filing complaints with local and Federal enforcement agencies, to arranging for temporary housing for displaced workers to personally rescuing workers from dangerous employment situations. The office was established by congressional action as a compromise to full application of the FLSA and INA as contemplated by Congress at that time. The mission of the office was to provide a safe haven in which aliens could confidentially, without fear of reprisal, seek protection of their rights. The task of establishing, staffing, and organizing this office was daunting. The actions against the presence of such an office within the CNMI and thus, against me personally, made that mission take on a crusade- like quality. The time of my tenure was marred by closure of garment factories, abandonment of workers, alien workers demonstrations and protests, threats of retaliation by foreign agents against the families of any complaining worker and daily incidents of abuse of Ombudsman case workers. Each day brought over fifty workers seeking assistance from myself and the caseworkers. Each day presented new challenges to get workers claims through the local government s maze of oral policies and procedures that were changed within minutes if it suited a powerful employer. Despite the many obstacles, the Ombudsman office was able to perform its mission albeit under a constant barrage of hostilities from local government officials and employers. In short, during this time, we were in the trenches. Page 6 of 11

7 June 1997 April 1999 Private Practice Attorney Pamela Brown, Attorney at Law My practice included litigation of labor, immigration, civil rights, criminal, juvenile and domestic cases in Federal and local courts. In 1997, I was named Attorney of the Year by the Commonwealth Bar Association. I also represented several corporate clients in administrative law matters from bidding on privatizing the local utilities corporation to operation of a garment factory within the CNMI. One of my cases during this time was subsequently and successfully prosecuted by the Department of Justice, Equal Rights Division under the Violence Against Women s Act. June 1994 June 1997 Private Practice Attorney Long & Brown, Attorneys at Law My practice included litigation of labor, immigration, civil rights, criminal, juvenile and domestic cases in local and Federal courts. Included in this litigation was a sizable appellate load. I was involved both during these years and later in my solo practice with many of the rescue missions regarding alien workers suffering in abusive employment situations. Through my labor and immigration practice, I developed long- term working relationships with many federal agents including the U.S. Department of Labor Solicitor s Office and Wage & Hour Office, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the National Labor Relations Board and the Civil Rights Division of the U.S. Department of Justice. The first prosecution in the CNMI under the Violence against Women s Act involved my clients whose claims I referred for federal prosecution. I arranged meetings at the request of Congressman George Miller and his staff with workers from various countries and various industries in the CNMI to gather facts regarding abuse of the local system. Later, as the Federal Ombudsman, I arranged for Senator Tom Harkin to meet with domestic workers to listen to what they were experiencing in the CNMI. June 1990 June 1994 Chief Senate Legal Counsel Northern Marianas Legislature I advised the Senate of the Northern Marianas Legislature on legislative, constitutional, policy and operation matters during the Seventh, Eighth and Ninth and Eleventh Legislatures. I also served on the Asian- Pacific Parliamentary Union Secretariat and the Association of Pacific Island Legislatures Secretariat from 1991 to My employment included the period from June 1997 to May 1999 while I was in private practice.
