Recent reports from the National Foundation for American Policy (NFAP) show that U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is denying H-1B visa petitions at higher rates than ever.

El Día Mundial de los Migrantes y Refugiados termina un mes ocupado en noticias de inmigración

El “Día Mundial de los Migrantes y Refugiados” finaliza un mes ocupado de septiembre para Immigration News

El domingo 29 de septiembre se celebró el “Día Mundial de los Migrantes y Refugiados” del Vaticano. Más de 100 años después del primer día en que fue instituido por el Papa Pío X en 1914, parece que se celebró en años anteriores en tiempos mucho menos ambiguos.

Tres años después del comienzo de la administración actual en la casa blanca, muchos creen que los inmigrantes tienen poco que celebrar en este momento; con más de 50,000 inmigrantes retenidos en centros de detención en los Estados Unidos. Además, el reciente anuncio del Gobierno de reducir el límite de refugiados a la baja sin precedentes de 18,000, parece, a primera vista, poco o nada para los solicitantes de asilo. esperar.

World Day of Migrants and Refugees ends a busy Month for Immigration News

“World Day of Migrants and Refugees” ends a busy month of September for Immigration News

Sunday 29th of September marked the Vatican’s “World Day of Migrants and Refugees”. Over 100 years on from the first day it was instituted by Pope Pius X in 1914, it would appear to have been celebrated in years past in far less ambiguous times.

Three years on from the beginning of the current administration at the Whitehouse, many believe that immigrants have little to celebrate at this moment in time; with more than 50,000 immigrants being held in detention centers across the U.S. Add to this, the Government’s recent announcement to reduce the  cap on refugees to the unprecedented low of 18,000, there seems, on the face of it, little or nothing for Asylum seekers to look forward to.

Corporaciones estadounidenses unen fuerzas y voces para la reforma migratoria

2019 ve a un número creciente de corporaciones de EE. UU. Unirse a las mesas redondas corporativas de inmigración para que se escuche su voz

No es fácil entregar noticias de inmigración sin mencionar las actividades y determinaciones de la administración Trump. El foco de las noticias se ha concentrado en los últimos meses en gran medida en políticas y protocolos instigados para detener el número de inmigrantes que ingresan a los Estados Unidos a través de la frontera sur. Pero, ¿cuáles podrían ser los efectos colaterales del clima de inmigración actual para las empresas estadounidenses y la economía en general? Ahora que las corporaciones estadounidenses están formando sus propias iniciativas de inmigración en línea con los recientes cambios de las estrictas reglamentaciones del gobierno, ¿Qué pasa si las empresas pueden hacer algo para ayudarse a sí mismas?.

2019 Sees a growing number of U.S. Corporations join immigration corporate roundtables to get their voices heard

It’s not easy to deliver Immigration news without mentioning the recent activities of the Trump administration. The focus of the news has over recent months largely concentrated on policies and protocols instigated to stem the numbers of immigrants entering the U.S. across the southern border. But what might be the knock-on effects of the current immigration climate to U.S. businesses and the wider economy? With U.S. Corporations now forming their own Immigration initiatives in line with recent hard-line changes, what if anything can businesses do to help themselves?
