Understanding the Diversity Immigrant Visa Program

blog3.jpgAs immigration remains a hot-button issue in the US, certain programs are coming under greater scrutiny by the current Administration. One such program is the Diversity Immigrant Visa Program, often referred to as the Visa Lottery Program, which has become one of the main avenues through which immigrants from Africa, Eastern Europe, and Asia obtain their Green Cards. But what exactly is this program and why is it such a hot-button issue?

DC Resources for Undocumented Individuals

Like past E.O.s, this order again targets immigrants and their employers, particularly H-1B recipients. What follows is a brief summary of the E.O. and it's potential impact on current H-1B recipients and their employers, as well as applicants for FY 2018.

Updates on Consular Processing

blog10.jpgFollowing the announcement of President Trump's second travel ban, the Department of State under the direction of Secretary Rex Tillerson issued a memorandum to all consular posts around the world on March 15, 2017. The memorandum was modified two days later, and again after a federal court in Hawaii placed a nationwide stay on implementation of the travel ban. While provisions in the memorandum specifically related to applicants from the six majority-Muslim countries identified in the ban were removed, other "heightened scrutiny" directives regarding global applicants remain in effect.
