The former chief of staff for Rep. Hal Rogers (R-Ky.) is working for the South Korean government to expand visa opportunities for the country's citizens.

Michael Higdon joined Cornerstone Government Affairs LLC in December as vice president after serving on the Hill since 2000, most recently as Rogers' chief of staff. Higdon will be trying "to create a unique E-4 professional visa category for Korean nationals to work in the United States," according to Foreign Agent Registration Act papers.

Higdon is not the first Hill insider to be employed by South Korea on immigration issues. In the past year, Seoul has used former aides from the White House, congressional offices and the CIA to guarantee the inclusion of special work visas for South Koreans in immigration reform legislation.
