Immigration

The United States is a nation of immigrants, but the US is also a nation with vacillating attitudes towards immigrants and a legal system that reflects those changing attitudes.  

Immigration coverage on the National Law Review includes employment immigration requirements, ranging from visa applications to specialty occupation matters, and various immigration programs like the EB-5 program. Additionally, individuals can find information that might impact their immigration status, such as updates on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals and the Green Card and Permanent Residency Program, as well as information on Temporary Protected Status eligibility for various nations.

In order to effectively cover Immigration policy, The National Law Review provides news on USCIS policies and the monthly State Department Visa Bulletin with updates on visa categories.  NLR also covers visa application requirements, including interview requirements and other compliance changes, as well as changes and updates to visa processing times.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement Actions, including information on ICE workplace raids, including state-specific legislation for employers stipulating compliance limitations with federal ICE officers.

Legal articles governing immigration issues which pertain to employees and employers are a mainstay of coverage. From the E-verify program to I-9 compliance, H-1B visas, and other “specialty visa” programs, readers can learn about the latest developments.

In today’s uncertain immigration environment, one can find the latest information available on immigration changes.   NLR covers issues such as the Trump Administration’s Immigration policies, including chain migration, executive orders, and DACA reform, and other information about various immigration actions, including Trump’s Travel Bans, winding their way through the Circuit Courts and the Supreme Court.

Visitors to the National Law Review can also learn about the latest agency news related to immigration. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS), United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), Department of Labor (DOL), and United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) are among the agencies which are covered under immigration law news on the National Law Review’s site.
