The E-2 Investor visa provides opportunities for foreign nationals to put on their entrepreneurial hat and start a business, invest in that business and get a visa to run their new business in the U.S. For those reasons, I call this visa the “Entrepreneurial visa.” Still, it is technically called the “Treaty Investor visa” because […]

2023-09-27T13:08:46-04:00

In the twenty years that I have been practicing immigration law, only one topic has remained hot; Illegal border crossings of immigrants, the lack of a coherent government policy to deal with it, and the debate over the effects that this has on the U.S. economy.

First of all, there is one thing that we […]

The good news on the U.S. immigration front has been few and far between since Covid-19 shut down the world in March of 2021.

As the President pushes for meat-processing plants to re-open or stay open, the number of workers getting infected with Covid-19 continues to rise.
