Immigration reform proves hopeful to activists

Residents of California know that the majority of illegal immigrants who come to the United States do so for a better life. This country was founded by immigrants. The only difference between then and now are the rules for immigrants coming into the country. Immigration activists are hopeful that good news for immigration reform is within reach, now that the government is back in business after its 16-day shutdown.

Affordable Care Act may affect work visa holders in California

It is not difficult to find information about the Affordable Care Act; in fact, hundreds and thousands of articles, blogs and social media posts have been dedicated to the subject. Yet for the many people in California who hold a work visa and are not planning on immigrating to the country, the issue of Obamacare can become more than a bit confusing. Though they may not be American citizens, as is the case of anyone who has obtained a legal work visa, they must still comply with the law.

Many California residents are aware that the laws in other countries can sometimes be oppressive toward certain groups of people. In these cases, individuals who feel that their country's laws are going against their religious or other important beliefs may come to the United States in hopes of gaining political asylum. In many cases, this asylum is granted, and individuals and families are able to lead their lives more closely to their core set of beliefs rather than having them oppressed by other governments.

Bills signed by California governor could lead to work visa

When an undocumented immigrant is detained by authorities, they can feel a great sense of fear. This fear stems not only from possible punishment for their alleged violation but also from the possibility that it could lead to deportation. In some cases, authorities have detained individuals longer than necessary in order for Immigration and Customs Enforcement to check their citizenship status. Luckily for those in California, several bills were recently signed that could help reduced prolonged detainment and possibly even lead to a work visa.
