Original February 23, 2015 post updated with May 26, 2015 Fifth Circuit ruling:  A Texas judge ordered a temporary hold on #immigrationaction Deferred Action for Parents of Americans (DAPA).  The  Feds have appealed, but they just lost in the Fifth Circuit.  Now that all but the nation's highest court has halted the DAPA program, the question remains: Is DAPA the only way to enact smart enforcement?  Arguably, the White House has anoth...

I am asked frequently why people who immigrate illegally don't just come here legally.  That's a good question, and it deserves a good answer. Estimates from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, the Pew Hispanic Research Center and USCIS show that 59% of all illegal immigration consists of people from Mexico.  Yet State Department Statistics show that only 15.6% of Mexican citizens who apply for business and tourist visas are re...

Despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary, a vocal group of advocates insists that the United States does not face a shortage of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) workers. The advocates argue incorrectly that high-skilled immigration is not only unnecessary but is ...

Today the Administrative Appeals Office (AAO) of the USCIS ruled in a published opinion that employers must file amended I-129 petitions for H-1B workers who move or add worksite locations, overturning an earlier policy of permitting just a Labor Condition Application (LCA) to be certified and posted in the new location before the employee started work there.  This new decision, Matter of SIMEIO Solutions LLC, 26 I&N Dec. 542 (AAO 2015)...

The bill will not target President Obama's executive actions on immigration, which could disappoint many conservatives.

In two separate opinions authored by separate courts, the judiciary allowed H-4 EAD applications to proceed, and continued to hold back DAPA hopefuls from receiving EADs (Employment Authorization Documents, work permits basically).   DAPA and expanded DACA: The State of Texas and other states sued DHS over Deferred Action for Parents of Americans (DAPA) and an expansion of the DACA program to remove the age cap and issue 3 year EADs,...

Employers' chances of attracting and retaining global talent just got worse.  USCIS has received 233,000 filings for only 85,000 H-1B slots this entire year, all received within a 5 day window.  With close to three times more cases filed than Congress allows, chances of obtaining an H-1B work visa this year are about 1 in 3.  That means that a majority of those international students who obtain U.S. degrees and a job offer will have to ...

A challenge by the Republican Governor of the State of Mississippi and some agents of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to the DACA program was dismissed by the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals in a decision filed today.  The Fifth Circuit ruled that the lawsuit could not prove injury to either Mississippi or ICE by implementation of the DACA program, and that it had to be dismissed because federal courts lack jurisdiction to hear...
