Assistance with green cards for investing in certain ventures?

Wouldn't it be nice to get a green card without having to go through the traditional channels? Well, for those who can afford to invest in certain business ventures in the United States, a certain visa program does make this type of assistance with green cards a possibility.

More temporary work permits may soon be available for farmworkers

A bill that is currently working its way through the approval process in California may help numerous immigrants across the state who are working on farms.

Immigration bill to increase permanent residence for skilled work

It may be one of the more endearing nicknames we've seen in a while: dubbing the Congressional supporters of immigration reform as the 'Gang of Eight' has a somewhat nostalgic ring to it, especially if you're a baby boomer remembering terms and phrases popular back in the sixties. More importantly, the federal immigration bill, if passed, would impact California positively and would expand opportunities for temporary work visas and permanent residence for high-skilled workers from overseas. This would help satisfy the enormous demand in the country for skilled and high tech workers.

California employers favor work visa changes in immigration bill

Most economists agree that when businesses are able to employ people while also making a profit through their endeavors, it helps the economy's road to recovery.

Industries ranging from agriculture to computer technology have benefited through the availability of immigrant workers.
