More Business From An Unexpected Source

There is considerable momentum in both chambers in Congress for increased enforcement with no consensus in sight on legalization, and most of the attention in the press focused on guest workers. While increased enforcement is widely understood as increased border measures, an overlooked area of the coming increase in enforcement is employer sanctions. The free pass that employers have been enjoying in recent years will be replaced with an enormous (think thousand fold) increase in employer investigations. What does this portend for immigration law firms? I-9 compliance work will comprise a larger portion of immigration practice, thanks to anti-immigrationists in Congress.

We welcome readers to share their opinion and ideas with us by writing to editor@ilw.com.

Dear Editor:
I would like to draw Immigration Daily's attention to the recent frontpage NY Times article (sept 28, 2005 issue) on the decreasing legal immigration numbers since 2000. I would like to suggest that the Immigration Daily should write a letter to the Editor to the NY Times giving their opinion on this issue. I think this is a good oppurtunity to bring more awareness to this issue (of low EB based visa, slow processing by USCIS, etc).
