August 2017 Archives

New bill makes it more difficult to enter the country

For immigrants here in Georgia and throughout the country, as well as those seeking to enter the United States, 2017 has been a particularly difficult year so far. The Tump administration has issued a number of directives and pushed legislation that seeks to clamp down on the flow of immigrants into the country, and in the very first days of August threw its support behind a new immigration bill co-authored by a Georgia Republican Senator. Under the new bill, a whole new set of qualifications could threaten those who hope to make a life for themselves in America.

The Employment First category gets you to the U.S. faster

If you plan to come to the United States to work, you'll need to obtain an employment-based immigrant visa. The first step is for a prospective employer to obtain a labor certificate approval from the United States Department of Labor. Once that's obtained, the employer needs to file for an Immigrant Petition for an Alien Worker, which begins the process of bringing you into the country for work.

Different types of United States work visas you may qualify for

Foreign nationals wishing to work in the United States are required to procure a work visa to do so. There are a number of different types of work permits you can apply for depending on the field you qualify to work in, how long you wish to be eligible to work in the county, whether you already have procured a job with a United States employer or not and even depending on what country you're from.

Atlanta faces fine under new immigration law

Atlanta seems to be at the center of a number of questionable practices by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), with many immigrants reporting that ICE agents are detaining them when they attend routine check-ins with authorities. There is great public disagreement about this tactic, with some claiming that ICE is merely upholding the law. Others claim that ICE is arresting individuals who pose no discernible threat, which seems patently unjust.

Eligibility and attention to detail key factors to citizenship

No matter where your country of origin happens to be, if you hope to become a U.S. citizen, there are definite steps to follow. U.S. immigration law often changes and can be quite complex and difficult to understand, especially if your particular situation involves a significant language barrier. There are immigrants who prefer to take matters into their own hands and enter the United States by any means possible; this often winds up causing those who act outside accepted parameters a lot of trouble.
