Immigration, VISA, USCIS, ICE, & DHS Legal Updates

In today’s political climate, immigration developments and regulations can change with the news cycle.  Employers count on the National Law Review to provide legal analysis of Department of Homeland Security and United States Citizenships and Immigration Services regulations, as well as changing visa requirements; including changing TPS status for communities and the uncertain future of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.  Visitors to the National Law Review will not only find the most up-to-date information related to these topics, but other Visa-based information, work permits, and immigration news, which affects US-based companies, their employees, and families.

Multinational companies and US-based companies heavily rely on non-US labor to perform many job functions. Additionally, skilled workers from outside the US, and those who are studying abroad in the US, require the proper documentation in order to legally remain in the country. Compliance issues, e-verify filing by companies and its employees, Form I-9 filing, employer verification obligations, and applying for temporary stay status, are among the many topics covered by the National Law Review, as it relates to immigration law. H1-B and H2-B work visas, EB-5 program, and the State Department’s Monthly Visa Bulletin, are frequently analyzed, discussed, and legal implications of these topics, are covered on the site.

Government agency news including the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) hearings, and the Department of Labor (DOL), are all intertwined in the world of immigration law. Visitors to the National Law Review will find timely coverage on these agencies, news revolving around labor laws and immigration, and content surrounding Visa processing, applications, and immigration reform.

Major issues in immigration include the changing and uncertain status of the DACA, or Dreamers, program.  The program, initiated under President Barack Obama, created a temporary path for childhood arrivals, brought to the US illegally by their parents, to a work permit and protection from deportation.  It does not provide a path to citizenship, and it has been heavily litigated since its inception and currently litigation is underway to determine the future of the DACA program, and that litigation is covered by NLR authors.  Additionally, when President Donald Trump took office he implemented a Travel Ban, limiting immigration to the United States from several, Muslim-majority countries.  This immigration travel ban has undergone several permutations and has been intensely litigated in circuit courts across the country, and this litigation has been closely followed and analyzed by NLR Authors. 

In today’s rapidly shifting immigration landscape, the National Law Review can be trusted to provide careful, thoughtful legal analysis of the developments, both litigation and regulation in the immigration area of law.
