How to protect yourself if ICE comes to your home

If you’re an undocumented immigrant living in the U.S., you may be worried about your ability to remain in the country. The president’s “deportation force” is trying to remove millions of immigrants from the United States. This has made many immigrants fearful to go to work—or even leave their home.

Visa holders and their spouses

There are no assurances that one can receive a work visa or green card by complying with regulations. In 2015, under the past presidential administration, there was an allowance for spousal visas when that individual’s spouse was taking the necessary steps to become a lawful permanent resident.

Can being an entrepreneur help me get a green card?

You’ve always dreamed of being an entrepreneur in the United States. You’ve got money ready to invest and an idea that is going to take the world by storm. There’s just one more thing you want before you finally start your business: green cards for you and your loved ones.

Americans strongly support highly skilled immigrants, study says

The inscription on the Statue of Liberty reads, “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses…”. These lines were intended to give hope to immigrants from around the world, traveling to America in search of a brighter future.

E-Verify suspended during the shutdown: what this means

In a previous post, we discussed some of the ways in which the current partial government shutdown is affecting immigration services. One of the areas that is currently out of operation is the E-Verify system. This system impacts immigrants and U.S. citizens alike.

More than three weeks ago, the disagreement between the executive and legislative branches of our government over funding for a wall between the U.S. and Mexico resulted in a stalemate. Consequently, the president called for a partial government shutdown.

USCIS proposes increasing H-1B visas for advanced degree holders

The H-1B visa allows degree-holding professionals in certain specialty occupations, along with a couple of other categories of workers, to live and work in the U.S. for between three and six years. This visa is commonly used to bring in people with certain credentials to fill jobs that are not easily filled by U.S. workers. An H-1B requires a job offer from a U.S. employer who is willing to petition for the worker and submit a Labor Condition Application.

Business leaders call out DHS for changes to H-1B processing

The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services claims that it is "relentlessly pursuing necessary immigration reforms that move towards a merit-based system," but Congress hasn't yet authorized any changes to the system. Indeed, there is still a great deal of disagreement about what an ideal immigration system might look like.
