Resolving Immigration Problems In An Honest & Responsible Manner

May 2014 Archives

Desire to grant Green cards to foreign graduates of U.S. colleges

While the pathway to being granted legal status to stay in the country isn't always easy, there are those fighting to provide more options for individuals who wish to call the United States home. Recently, the Department of Labor asked government officials to grant green cards to foreign graduates of U.S. colleges, in order for them to use the education they gain here to support the local economy. This could be a huge benefit to California students about to graduate, who may otherwise be forced to head back to their native country when their college days are done.

Military-immigration bill may provide a pathway to citizenship

Immigration policy is certainly a hot topic with U.S. lawmakers. With some pushing for border protection and deportation, others are looking for ways to provide the over 11 million undocumented immigrants already in the country a pathway to citizenship. While overwhelming immigration reform has not been reached, smaller steps are being proposed to assist those in this situation, which could positively affect many California residents.

Mexican woman seeking asylum reunited with family in California

A woman who crossed the border on foot earlier this year and requested asylum has been reunited with her family in California. The woman has been detained since her arrival in the United States in March. She was seeking asylum here, saying she was receiving death threats due to her government employment.

Lack of citizenship doesn't justify unsafe working conditions

One of the leading labor unions in the United States said recently that illegal immigrants should not have to be afraid about speaking out against unsafe working conditions. Leaders of the AFL-CIO say that changes are needed in deportation policies so that people are not afraid to report dangerous work situations -- regardless of their citizenship status. The recommendation was part of a list released recently that offered a look at the union's stand on immigration policies and how they affect the workforce.

New guidelines may make things more difficult for asylum seekers

Changes to the guidelines concerning what does or does not constitute a valid request for asylum may be interesting to people in California who are monitoring developments in this issue. The changes could mean that those who are seeking asylum in the United States may now find it more difficult to get their story heard. Some officials say that scenario is already taking place.
