    My ex is from South Korea. She married me to get citizenship--- and has explained this at length, going into her motives in detail, and bragging that she tricked me and I never suspected until it was too late. She also says on tape that she may, in the future, try to do this again, if she can find a man who has an additional citizenship in a country she's interested in. I also have her on tape admitting that she repeatedly hit me and tried to run me over with her car during the course of our marriage, and that she did most of the physical abuse in front of our young son. (She has also told me…

  • Even More Evidence that Immigration Reform Saves Money

    Walter Ewing
    22 May 2015 | 11:07 am
    Among serious researchers, it is largely a settled matter that comprehensive immigration reform benefits the U.S. economy at all levels, from deficit reduction and added tax revenue to job creation and higher wages. That was the conclusion of the Congressional Budget Office, for instance, with regard to the Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act of 2013 (S.744), which made it through the Senate before perishing in the House of Representatives. At the time, the leadership of the House maintained that its members preferred to pass a series of smaller…
  • Bi-Partisan House Bill Recommends Largest Increase Ever in Immigration Judges

    Mark Noferi
    21 May 2015 | 12:38 pm
    This week, the House Appropriations Committee recommended the largest increase in immigration judges in history—$74 million for 55 new immigration judges, and other court improvements. The bipartisan bill acknowledges that a severe shortage of immigration judges has plagued the U.S. immigration system for years. While Congress has increased immigration enforcement funding exponentially over the past decade, Congress has yet to provide the immigration courts commensurate funding to handle the hundreds of thousands of new removal cases courts receive each year. Each immigration judge was…
  • Immigration Appeals Court Reverses Position on Deportation Waivers

    Emily Creighton
    20 May 2015 | 2:19 pm
    In a decision issued last week, the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) reversed course and decided that a subset of Legal Permanent Residents (LPRs) who have been convicted of certain crimes may now have an opportunity to avoid deportation by proving to an immigration judge that their removal would cause extreme hardship to their U.S. citizen or LPR family members. The case, Matter of J-H-J-, 26 I&N Dec. 563 (BIA 2015), accepts the reasoning set forth by the American Immigration Council and others, and holds that individuals who were not admitted at the border as LPRs but later became…

    Patrick Taurel
    19 May 2015 | 11:05 am
    Today should have been the day when millions of undocumented moms and dads of U.S. citizens could have claimed their chance to work legally and live in dignity in the United States, alleviated, at long last, from vulnerability to exploitation and the constant threat of deportation and family separation. What you should have seen when you got your news this morning were the hopeful and relieved faces of immigrants ready to formally join the American community to which they have already contributed so much. The airwaves were supposed to be filled with interviews of U.S. citizen children…
  • California Leads the Transition in Pro-Immigrant State Lawmaking

    Wendy Feliz
    18 May 2015 | 9:26 am
    In the last two decades, the state of California has transformed itself from a leader in anti-immigrant policymaking—most famously attempting to bar the undocumented from attending public schools and localizing immigration enforcement through Prop 187—to a leader in providing creative, forward-thinking policies on immigration. A new analysis by the California Immigrant Policy Center documents the work California is doing to harness the power of immigration and to create a system of fairness for immigrants working and living in the state. “The California Blueprint: Two Decades of…

  • "Decoupling" Police Work from Reality, Including the Effects of Illegal Immigration

    Dan Cadman
    22 May 2015 | 11:18 am
    My colleague Jessica Vaughan has written an excellent piece on the absurdity of the immigration-related recommendations of the president's Task Force on 21st Century Policing. The report included the recommendation that civil immigration violations not be included in the FBI's national crime computer (which is not, and hasn't been, an issue for some time) and that state and local police distance themselves from immigration law enforcement, even though the adverse impact of illegal immigration stares state and local governments, including cops, in the face daily. If that weren't true, 26…
  • DHS Trumpets Its Own Immigration Failure

    Mark Krikorian
    22 May 2015 | 8:59 am
    A press release from Immigration and Customs Enforcement this week boasts that "ICE removes man wanted by Romanian authorities for attempted murder." Sounds good, right? Tomescu was apprehended near Douglas, Ariz., in July 2010 when he tried to enter the United States without inspection. U.S. Border Patrol officers served him a notice to appear in immigration court and placed him in custody. So far, so good. The Board Patrol is on top of things. He was later released on an order of recognizance. Wait, what? We let him go? read more
  • How to Read an ICE Press Release — Repeated Enforcement Failures Ignored

    David North
    22 May 2015 | 8:56 am
    The headline this ICE press release sounds like another triumph for law enforcement: "ICE removes man wanted by Romanian authorities for attempted murder" But a careful reader will find that it took three law-breaking events, the passage of five years, and one misguided government act — freeing him on "an order of recognizance" — before he was finally turned over to the Romanian cops. read more
  • Update on Lawsuit over Work Permits for Spouses of H-1Bs

    John Miano
    21 May 2015 | 1:40 pm
    Today was the hearing for the preliminary injunction over the DHS regulations authorizing work under H-4 visas (for the spouses of H-1B visa holders; some background on the lawsuit is here.) This hearing was not on the merits of the case – whether DHS is permitted by law to grant work authorization to H-4 visa holders – but rather whether implementation of the new regulations (which are scheduled to go into effect next week) should be put on hold until the lawsuit is resolved. Normally, each party spends 15 minutes answering the judge's questions. I was answering questions for 45 minutes.

    Jessica Vaughan
    21 May 2015 | 11:03 am
    The president's Task Force on 21st Century Policing, which was formed in the wake of Ferguson and other controversial policing events last year (none of which had anything to do with immigration), unfortunately has become another opportunity for anti-immigration enforcement activists to fabricate "mainstream" support for the continued crippling of DHS enforcement agencies by the Obama administration. read more

    Patty Johnson
    22 May 2015 | 8:37 am
    The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) receives thousands of green card applications every year, which creates a significant backlog. In result, the U.S. Department of State issues the monthly Visa Bulletin, providing updated priority dates and application quota numbers. Each date indicates how long the current backlog is, as well as the expected processing time.

  • H-1B Lottery Season Nears End as USCIS Completes Data Entry

    Patty Johnson
    14 May 2015 | 6:45 am
    Did you know that 66% of filed H-1B lottery applications won’t be considered for processing this year? That’s because the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) received more than 233,000 H-1B petitions for FY 2016, which is a staggering two-thirds more than the 85,000 limit. Why is there a limit? There are many skilled workers from around the world that would like to join the U.S. labor market. To manage immigration levels, the USCIS limits the amount of new H-1B applications each year. What happens next? If you submitted any H-1B cap cases, here are a few things you…

    Undocumented immigrants face many fears living in the United States. President Obama announced Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and Deferred Action for Parental Accountability (DAPA) in order to provide protected status and work authorization benefits to 5 million undocumented individuals. While United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is accepting DACA applications, there is a temporary injunction on DACA’s 2014 expanded provision and DAPA in its entirety. Some people who are eligible for deferred action, but are waiting for their application to be approved…

For example: If the date is 01SEP07, it means the USCIS is processing applications that were filed on September 1, 2007. If the foreign national’s priority date is prior to the…
  • Employment-Based Green Cards: 3 Tips to Help You Master the PERM Process

    Patty Johnson
    6 May 2015 | 11:51 am
    Sponsoring a foreign national for an employment-based green card is a great way to retain skilled talent. However, for most green card categories (including EB-2 and EB-3), employers are required to complete a rigorous PERM labor certification process. This important step, which must be completed before starting the green card process, helps the U.S. government make sure no U.S. citizens are available to fill the role. To help you master the PERM process, we’ve identified three must-know tips from The HR’s Guide to Green Cards: 1. Write a thorough job description for the prevailing wage…

  • Update on the Asylum Backlog

    Jason Dzubow
    13 May 2015 | 7:11 am
                        If you’ve visited this website before, you know that I’ve written about the asylum backlog again and again… and again and again and again and again. And yet again. And once more. And probably a few other times in-between. USCIS recently released some new statistics on asylum, and so I thought I would share them here and discuss the current situation. Measured in smoots, the backlog is 86.9 miles long + one ear. First off, despite the efforts of the…
  • Is the Asylum System to Blame for Migrant Deaths?

    Jason Dzubow
    5 May 2015 | 6:20 am
                        We think of spring in the Northern hemisphere as a time of rebirth and renewal. But in the Mediterranean, for refugees attempting to reach Europe by sea, it is a time of dying. Deporting children protects them. Vaccines cause Autism. Ketchup is a vegetable. Last month, over 800 people died when an overcrowded boat sank en router from Libya to Southern Europe. That brings the number of migrant deaths at sea during this season to 1,780 people, as compared to 96 people…
  • Refugees Come to America–To Sing!

                        One of my more memorable cases involved testimony from my client’s uncle, a well-known singer from Ethiopia who had been living in exile in Sweden and the U.S. since 1974. He was testifying about conditions in Ethiopia and whether it was safe for his nephew (my client) to return home. He mentioned that even after 40 years away, many of his songs were about Ethiopia. I asked him about his feeling towards his homeland. “I love my country,” he responded. Did…
  • Asylum for the Jews of France?

    Jason Dzubow
    17 Apr 2015 | 7:03 am
                        Over the past few years, there have been a number of deadly and horrific attacks against Jewish people in Europe. Targeted by radical Muslims, Jews have been murdered in a Kosher market, outside a synagogue, and at a Jewish daycare facility. They have been targeted for attack at a Jewish Community Center, and there have been hundreds of lesser (but still frightening) instances of anti-Semitism. The Jews of France are not alone. But is that enough? In response, some…

                        The Greek philosopher Heraclitus tells us that you can never step into the same river twice. We often find ourselves returning to places we visited long ago, though of course those places have changed and so have we. At least that’s how it is for me with Syria. A dashing young traveler visits the Old City of Damascus. I visited Syria with two friends way back in April 1990, when I was a student at Hebrew University in Jerusalem. We left Israel during our Passover…

  • Immigration Advocates Challenge Family Detentions

    Romona Paden
    21 May 2015 | 2:42 pm
    The persistent influx of immigrants streaming into the United States from Central America has overwhelmed the nation’s detention centers, making conditions in the facilities untenable, immigration advocates say. At the heart of the matter are the processing protocols of immigrants making asylum claims. Before the onslaught of immigrants crossing the border began last summer, asylum seekers could likely expect just a couple of weeks in a federal detention facility. But the thousands of undocumented parents and children who began pouring into the country last summer means families are…

    18 May 2015 | 1:56 pm
    As the deluge of immigrants making their way through the legal system only continues to grow, immigration courts in a number of cities across the country are finding resources stretched to the limit. Fueled not only by an influx of immigrants from Central America, the court backlog is likewise projected to only worsen as the net number of qualified professionals to work in immigration law continues to dwindle. For the 233 immigration judges who currently sit in one of the 58 immigration courts across the country, this means a case load of up to 3,000. As a result, some cases have been…
  • Clinton Defends Path to Citizenship

    Romona Paden
    13 May 2015 | 5:40 pm
    Hillary Clinton, the likely Democratic nominee for the 2016 presidential race, is going bold in her stance on immigration as she defends a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants. In a Las Vegas speech delivered earlier in May, Clinton told supporters she’ll move even more boldly than President Obama. Since President Obama issued executive actions last November to expand the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program and to launch the Deferred Action for Parents of Americans (DAPA) program, Republicans have managed to stall the measure through a federal injunction.

    After years of leading the opposition to liberalize immigration laws, establishment Republicans are now changing course to work with immigrants—even undocumented ones—to move the population toward mainstream assimilation. Although the effort to counter the Democratic stronghold on immigration is not so surprising, that the Koch brothers are providing the funding for immigrant assistance is something of a shock. The effort– Linking Immigrants to Benefits, Resources and Education (LIBRE)—is an organization designed to counter the near monopoly Democratic candidates have…

    The landscape of comprehensive immigration reform in the U.S. continues to grow more and more volatile as we inch nearer to the 2016 presidential election. Though we have not yet hit the primaries, tensions are flaring over the issue and it is expected to be one of the most divisive topics as candidates hit the campaign trail.

    Immigration remains one of the most volatile political topics in the U.S. as we draw nearer and nearer to the primaries for the 2016 presidential election. Advocates of reform maintain that the only way to resolve the issue is to offer an expedited path to American citizenship for undocumented immigrants currently residing stateside. Meanwhile, those who oppose reform believe that president Barack Obama's administration is not doing enough to secure the border and promote heightened domestic security. These individuals are spearheaded by a group of governors from 26 states who have…

    10 May 2015 | 9:01 pm
    The Economic Class programs are no longer ‘first come first serve.’  CIC has created a new process, ‘Express Entry’, to manage the applications for Federal Skilled Worker Class, Canadian Experience Class and the Federal Skilled Trades Class. Express Entry is a fairly complex points system which ranks qualified candidates from the above three programs. There is no initial application fee. CIC pulls the highest ranking candidates from the pool of registered candidates periodically throughout the year.  If you are picked you receive an ‘Invitation to Apply’ (or ITA). The…
  • Emailing with CIC: Who is responsible for lost or failed email messages?

    Gianpaolo Panusa
    6 Apr 2015 | 3:22 pm
    If you provide an email address in your application form, you are allowing CIC to communicate with you by email. Generally speaking email is a great thing for any immigration application.  Email is instant, and letters from CIC can take days to weeks depending on which country you are in. However, what happens if an email message gets lost in the web?  What if it fails to deliver? There have been some devastating cases of this happening.  An applicant is patiently waiting for CIC to respond to an application.  One day they receive an email (or a letter) saying the application was rejected…

PRRA (or Pre-Removal Risk Assessment) is a process available to those facing removal from Canada.  Don’t know if you qualify?  If you do qualify you’ll receive a notification letter – but be ready to act quickly when you receive notice from CIC.

  • Overview of the new study permit rules

    Gianpaolo Panusa
    30 Sep 2014 | 9:47 pm
    Thousands of foreign students enter Canada every year to study at one of hundreds of colleges or universities. It’s a smart move.  Not only do you get to experience Canadian culture, but it can set you up for a post-graduation work visa, and eventually permanent residence in Canada. Even if permanent residence is not your current goal, after studying here, you may wish to stay indefinitely. However, the student permit rules have changed recently and I’ve summarized the key aspects below. Note that a study permit is only required for a program over 6 months in length.  However,…
  • Labour Market Opinion is now a Labour Market Impact Assessment

    Gianpaolo Panusa
    2 Aug 2014 | 2:39 pm
    If you are planning to work in Canada as a temporary foreign worker, you typically need an employer who is willing to hire you.  That employer must also be willing to apply to the government to show that it is difficult (or impossible) to find a Canadian who is able to do the job you wish to do. In the past the employer would apply for a “labour market opinion” (LMO) to confirm that it would be difficult to find a Canadian.  An LMO would be issued and you would use that LMO to apply for your work permit. However, the labour market opinion is now known as a labour market impact…

    In the United States, there are millions of children and young adults who were brought over to the United States illegally when they were young. Until recently, most of these young adults did not have a means of getting a driver’s license, work permit, or government identification. They were essentially living ghosts in society. Young […]

    The L-1 non-immigrant visa is an often overlooked method for foreign companies to bring experienced managers and skilled employees to the United States to open a subsidiary entity. It is also a wonderful opportunity for employees to come to work in the United States and bring their families. However, there are restrictions on who would […]

    In October 2014, the Department of State announced that they would no longer issue additional page inserts for U.S. passports starting in January 1, 2016. From now until that date, it is still possible to contact the local U.S. Consulate or Embassy to obtain an additional 24 blank visa pages attached to the existing passport. […]

    An employer can bring their personal/domestic employees into the United States as long as the employer entered the U.S. as a non-immigrant visa holder or the employer is a United States Citizen who lives abroad but will be in the United States for a temporary period.

  • Self-employment an Option for Undocumented Immigrants

    Paul
    27 Apr 2015 | 9:33 am
    Undocumented immigrants in the United States take advantage of laws that allow them to work legally as their own employers, which in turn helps them support themselves and improves the country’s economy. Companies that hire independent contractors do not have to check the immigration status of their hires, which allows undocumented immigrants the ability to work with a certain amount of legality in some cases. The undocumented immigrants who are most likely to do this are the younger, more technologically aware sort who are able to maintain their own tools cheaply on the Internet and…
  • Health Insurance Issues for Illegal Immigrants

    Paul
    20 Apr 2015 | 12:06 pm
    The poor options for insurance for undocumented immigrants in the U.S. make it only more imperative that comprehensive immigration reform be passed for the sake of the states’ residents. Health insurance can be difficult for people in the United States and that only goes double for people who have questionable immigration status. Even with the creation of the Affordable Care Act – commonly referred to by its nickname, Obamacare – undocumented immigrants in the United States are often excluded from the health insurance market. Government aid exists to insure people who need it,…
  • Unexpected Benefits of Obama’s Immigration Executive Actions

    Paul
    16 Apr 2015 | 10:00 am
    A central criticism of Barack Obama’s November executive orders for immigration reform is that they were not well thought-out and leave room for possibly detrimental interpretations. That certainly seems true in terms of how taxes are being applied to deferred action recipients. The IRS announced in March that illegal immigrants with deferred action will be able to claim tax breaks retroactively for three years. This means that deferred action recipients could, potentially, receive three years of tax returns in one fell swoop. This would, of course, lay an unreasonable burden on the U.S.
  • How Hard is it to Pass the Citizenship Test?

    Paul
    14 Apr 2015 | 5:45 am
    The U.S. citizenship test is much easier to pass than many people expect. It’s tempting for many people to assume that the citizenship test might be some sort of trick to exclude people, that it’s full of difficult questions, trick questions designed to reduce the number of citizens admitted to the U.S. every year. But, in actuality, with the proper preparation and study, the test is not that difficult and does not set out to fail people. It’s a relatively common joke in the United States that citizens in high school would mostly be unable to pass the U.S. citizenship test, but this is…
  • Tax Season for Green Card Holders

    Paul
    10 Apr 2015 | 1:46 pm
    Tax season in the United States is the period of time between the first of the year and April 15 and is dreaded by residents for a variety of reasons. Some fear it because they know that they will have to pay the government, some because they have a hard time filling out the occasionally difficult forms, others simply balk at the inconvenience. However, for the majority of people, tax season is routine and simple. Tax returns are due from citizens, Green Card holders and some temporary residents on April 15 every year. You can find the appropriate forms that you will need to fill out and…
