H-1B visa controversy and requirements

As we've previously noted, immigration is bound to be a major and divisive issue in the upcoming presidential election. While much of the media's attention is paid to the issue of illegal immigration and how to handle the millions of undocumented immigrants who are currently living in the U.S., concerns have also been raised about those individuals who come to work in the U.S. on H-1B visas.

Are ICE agents violating their own policies and immigrants' rights?

Created in 2003, the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement or ICE is the federal government agency that is tasked with enforcing U.S. border control laws and engaging in immigration removal operations. As one would expect, the very mention of ICE can set off panic signals throughout immigrant communities and especially among those individuals who are undocumented.

Recent deportation case raises concerns about DACA protections

In 2012, the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) Program went into effect. The program, which was championed by President Barak Obama, allows undocumented individuals who came to the U.S. before they turned age 16 to obtain permission to stay and work in the U.S. for a two-year renewable time frame. In addition to coming to the U.S. prior to turning age 16, DACA applicants must meet a series of other requirements related to their age and current removal or deportation status.
