Important Immigration Updates and Reminders – January 2017

Some of the proposals discussed so far could impact employers, as they include potentially increasing worksite enforcement and raids, changes to the H-1B visa, suspension of visa issuance where adequate screening cannot occur, implementation of biometric entry/exit visa tracking systems at all ports of entry, and termination of the DACA employment authorization program. Three Executive Orders issued last week provide further insights into the Trump Administration’s immigration reform priorities.
