LEGAL IMMIGRATION - WHY ADJUSTMENT OF STATUS (AOS) REMAINS ON THE BACK BURNER?

The debate over immigration reform is more focused on allowing illegal immigrants become lawful residents. How about those who came to the United States lawfully and have kept their lawful presence in the United States for several years, even decades, and are trying to adjust their status to permanent residence but hit the I-130 long processing times? Shall they continue going to school forever just to keep their lawful... more »

Immigration trending idea

The Constitution of the United States of America was written and signed by immigrants, for immigrants. "Land of the Free!" (…as slavery shamefully continued for many following generations.)

Some Americans boast of superiority, but reject those who seek the "American Dream." There is not one solitary reason a person or family flees to the United States of America. Some search for a better future; some for safety; some... more »

Immigration

Crisis level USCIS processing delays for H4 and H4EAD impacting 93,000 skilled immigrant women across the country. Losing jobs, health insurance, and even basic ability to renew drivers license. This is a humanitarian crisis. Please resolve this issue by introducing premium processing, allow us to work on receipt notices until USCIS delays were cleared. Please help us.

Request to protecting the Age of Child Under the 'Dates of Filing'

The USCIS Policy Manual, https://www.uscis.gov/policy-manual/volume-7-part-a-chapter-7, states that only the 'Dates of Final Action Date (FAD)' protects the age of the child under the Child Status Protection Act (CSPA). If an I-485 application is filed pursuant to a 'Dates of Filing (DFF)' and the child ages out before the final date becomes available, the child will no longer be protected despite being permitted to file... more »

Thousands of American workers and American customers depend on H2B workers for their livelihood. We have spent thousands of dollars trying to hire local workers to augment my work force, but NOBODY WANTS TO WORK.

 

PLEASE RELEASE THE H2B VISAS, which are already approved by Congress, BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE AND HUNDREDS OF SMALL BUSINESSES SUCH AS MINE ARE FORCED TO CLOSE!!

Cuba Immigration to the USA.

Arrange for Political Refugees easy access via asylum into the USA with either relatives, friends, or Sponsors.

The same or better policy many years ago.

Another Mariel Boat Lift as it were, admitting those that are unjustly incarcerated by the Communist party for violating freedom of speech or right of assembly. Or minor incidentes of traffic violations etc.

RE: Interim Guidance: Civil Immigration Enforcement and Removal Priorities

To Whom it May Concern,

 

The recent memo issued to ICE by Tae D. Johnson as entitled falls unbearably short of the expectations that the majority of US citizens have for the Biden Administration and the respective offices under its authority, specifically the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). In the memo, a "presumed priority" noncitizen may be defined as follows:... more »

Amendment to Presidential Proclamation 10014 to reunite families of LPRs

Consider adding an amendment and resume visa issuance to spouses of Legal Permanent Residents (LPRs). Currently there's an exemption under PP 10014 for spouses of US citizens but spouses of LPRs are not included. LPRs are taxpayers as well, and deserve to be reunited with their loved ones.

COVID-19 protocols and other conditions might be set in place and review issuance on a case by case basis as suggested for other... more »

Avoiding abuse by colleges

Universities are reclassifying their majors to get around DHS regulations, for example New York University classifies journalism and drama under a STEM major. STEM is science, technology,engineering and math. This is clearly abusive.

 

In other instances for example at Berkeley, professors openly stated they would conspire to get around DHS/ICE rules by having one student classrooms for immigrants. Immigration is highly... more »

Arab Christian Immigrants: A Sad Story of Oppression in the Middle East and Unfair Treatment By The US Travel Ban

The rise of Islamic extremism has been a singular driving force in the plight of religious minorities, fueling a growing desire to resort to religion as a palliative. Although Christians have lived in the Middle East - the birthplace of Christianity - for nearly two thousand years, as a result of years of persecution and discrimination, especially in the past 15 years, they now constitute no more than 3-4% of the region’s... more »

H2B visas ought not to be expanded this year.

Congress recently approved an expansion of the H2B program from 66,000 to 135,000 visas this year. However, the actual expansion is at the discretion of Homeland Security.

I encourage DHS secretary John F. Kelly not to expand the program. Businesses which complain about a lack of workers usually are paying too low a wage or have bad working conditions, or are deliberately manipulating the hiring process to screen out... more »
