July 2017 Archives

Program allowing expedited H1-B status reinstated

On July 24, the federal government reinstated a program that allows some employers in Arizona and throughout the country to gain faster H-1B visa consideration. Employers must not be subject to the annual visa cap in addition to paying a fee of $1,225. The premium program had been suspended by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services in March 2017. Hospitals and non-profits are generally exempt from the annual H-1B visa cap.

More seasonal temporary labor visas to be issued

Despite rhetoric to the contrary, additional visas are being made available for more temporary foreign workers to come to Arizona and elsewhere in the United States on a seasonal basis. While President Donald Trump has become known for his harsh stance on immigration, he has made use of the same visa program to staff his own hotels and resorts.

Federal government puts asylum seekers at risk

Asylum seekers who try to enter the country legally in states like Arizona may find themselves endangered by legislation passed by the U.S. House of Representatives in late June 2017. According to human rights advocates, "Kate's Law" raises the possibility that people seeking entry for their own safety might end up being prosecuted instead.
