Lloyd Bennett Attends Immigration Agency Update in Washington DC
Following our meetings in Washington, DC to discuss immigration reform the American Immigration Lawyers Association held its 2016 Immigration Agency Update. In attendance were the officials who run the Department of Labor, USCIS, Executive Office for Immigration Review, Customs and Boarder Patrol, Immigration and Customs Enforcement and the Department of State. We discussed PERM modernization, H-1B filings, prevailing wage issues, new policy memos, service center processing updates, overburdened court dockets, hiring of new immigration judges, visa waiver changes,NAFTA and i-94 issues, prosecutoral discretion standards, detention of women and children, visa processing updates and NVC center procedures.
As always it was an extremely interesting day.
