Suspension of expedited H-1B visas partially lifted

Some Florida companies may be able to arrange for foreign employees to get H-1B visas more quickly than in the past few months. On July 24, some employers were once again given the ability to expedite H-1B visa applications by paying for them. In March, this premium processing was suspended by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services. The reinstatement applies to H-1B visas that are exempt from the annual visa cap.

15,000 additional H-2B visas now available to U.S. employers

Most people would naturally assume that industries like hospitality, landscaping, food processing, retail and even construction would have little problem finding a steady supply of workers. However, this is far from the case.

SCOTUS: Citizenship can't be revoked for minor misstatements

After a long and busy term, things are now relatively quiet in the halls of the Supreme Court of the United States and will likely remain this way until the start of the next session. From a legal news perspective, this means the nation's high court won't be making headlines any time soon.

Who exactly is covered by the revised travel ban?

Last week, our blog discussed how the Supreme Court of the United States finally handed down a decision on the Trump administration's so-called travel ban. To recap, the justices, via an unsigned order, permitted a more limited version of the travel ban to proceed and scheduled oral arguments to decide the merits of the case when they reconvene in the fall.
