L-1 visa battle brewing on Capitol Hill

Employees in San Diego who have a work visa, as well as employers who hire immigrant workers, might be interested in a recent news story about a battle over the L-1 visa. This particular type of visa allows for employees working in a company's foreign offices to transfer to offices in the United States. Critics of the L-1 visa claim that by accepting the recommendations suggested by over 60 organizations, including the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and IT outsourcing firms, it may undermine protections that U.S. workers have.

California lawmakers propose bill to protect law-abiding immigrants

Many immigrants living in California and throughout the country know how difficult it can be obtain U.S. citizenship. But it can seem unfair to have the threat of deportation constantly hovering over your head if you work, pay taxes and follow the laws. Some California lawmakers have recognized this and are working to have a new bill put on the November ballot across the state. The proposal, if passed, could affect deportation and removal proceedings for many in our state.

Obama's plan to improve jail conditions for immigrants stirs debate

San Diego readers may be interested in the U.S. House of Representative's Judiciary Committee hearing focusing on reforms made by the Obama administration for the benefit of immigrant detainees. Reports of injuries, deaths and sexual assault led to the administration's action, which primarily targets the treatment of immigrants facing deportation and removal proceedings. Some of the detained individuals complained of health problems that did not receive proper medical care and others were apparently victims of sexual assaults while incarcerated.

Asian population undeterred by arduous immigration process

For many immigrants, the citizenship and naturalization process can be confusing and difficult. Those reasons may turn some people off from trying to navigate the lengthy process. However, a new report from the Census Bureau shows that the number of Americans who identified themselves as Asian has surged approximately 46 percent between the years 2000 and 2010. This number far surpasses the 10 percent rate of the United States population growth in its entirety during the same period. While the daunting citizenship and naturalization process may deter some from coming to the United States, the number of Asian Americans in this country has risen more than 17 million during those designated ten years.
