  • Article: The Best Way for Trump to Offer “Love and Sympathy” is to Repeal the Muslim Ban By Cyrus Mehta

    The Best Way for Trump to Offer “Love and Sympathy” is to Repeal the Muslim Ban by Cyrus Mehta In the aftermath of the killing of 49 people who were peacefully praying in two mosques in Christchurch by a white supremacist, it is worth reflecting on Trump’s travel ban again. Trump’s travel ban, also known as the Muslim ban, and all of his other immigration policies, are based on promoting white nationalism. It is thus little surprise that Trump did not firmly denounce white nationalism and did not view it as a worrying trend in the world and instead blamed a small group of people “with very, very serious problems.” He did not show any revulsion for the suspected killer, Brenton Harrison Tarrant, even though in his manifesto Tarrant praised Trump “as a symbol of renewed white identity and common purpose.” When Trump was a candidate he said “I think Islam hates us.” He also lied about Muslims across the river in New Jersey celebrating after the September 11 attacks. As a candidate, Trump audaciously called for a “total and complete shutdown for Muslims entering the United States.” It was this animus towards Islam that played to Trump’s electoral base that served as the backdrop for Trump’s executive orders banning people from mostly Muslim countries when he took office. The first two executive orders were struck down by courts. A modified third executive order was fashioned to survive court scrutiny, which was upheld by the Supreme Court in Trump v. Hawaii even though two lower courts of appeal struck it down as unconstitutional. The ban has empowered extremists and Islamophobes worldwide. This may also be the reason why Trump did not specifically express empathy with Muslims in his tweet expressing condolence after the Christchurch massacres, which he tweeted shortly after an interview with Brietbart News where he suggested that his supporters would resort to violence: My warmest sympathy and best wishes goes out to the people of New Zealand after the horrible massacre in the Mosques. 49 innocent people have so senselessly died, with so many more seriously injured. The U.S. stands by New Zealand for anything we can do. God bless all! Neither does Trump condemn the killer in this tweet. He insensitively says “best wishes” as if it is a wedding and ends with “God bless all.” One can see white supremacists taking some comfort in this equivocal message. Recall his other infamous equivocal message when he defended neo Nazis in Charlottesville by stating that there are “very fine people on both sides.” Compare Trump’s statements with those of New Zeala...

  • Article: Appeals Court Says Asylum Seekers May Now Challenge Their Deportation in Federal Court By Emma Winger for Immigration Impact

    Appeals Court Says Asylum Seekers May Now Challenge Their Deportation in Federal Court by Emma Winger for Immigration Impact Many asylum seekers who travel to the United States seeking protection often receive something much less—they are arrested by immigration officials and provided no meaningful way to challenge their deportation in federal court. Last week, in Thuraissigiam v. U.S. Department of Homeland Security, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals became the first federal appeals court to say that depriving these asylum seekers of federal court review violated the U.S. Constitution . This decision adds a key level of protection for a vulnerable population currently under attack by the Trump administration. Because of their circumstances, asylum seekers are often unable to meet the legal requirements to enter the United States. If they lack proper documentation, they are forced into an expedited removal process. A single asylum officer decides whether their fear is credible and there is only a cursory review by an immigration judge. In Fiscal Year 2016, 41 percent of all deportations were through this expedited removal process. The process is deeply flawed. Immigration officers routinely violate even the minimal protections in place for asylum seekers in expedited removal proceedings. Immigration officers fail to inform migrants that they may seek asylum in the United States, do not inquire about their fear of persecution, provide inadequate interpretation, and fail to correctly record the results of the interview or explain the reasons for denying a claim. When an asylum seeker asks for review by an immigration judge, they often do not have an immigration attorney. Vijayakumar Thuraissigiam, an asylum seeker from Sri Lanka, faced this flawed expedited removal process. In his case, the asylum officer and immigration judge failed to follow the required procedures and failed to apply the correct legal standards when they evaluated his fear claim. He tried to challenge it in federal court, but the district court held that it could not consider Mr. Thuraissigiam’s claims under the immigration laws. When he appealed that decision, the Ninth Circuit r...

  • March 14 - Blanket I-526 Expedites

    March 14 - Blanket I-526 Expedites

    Comment: Blanket I-526 Expedites ILW was commissioned to write a white paper on blanket I-526 expedites about 5 years ago. We also conducted an EB-5 Roundtable on blanket I-526 expedites at that time. One of the attorneys who attended that Roundtable subsequently succeeded in obtaining a Blanket I-526 expedite which secured hundreds of investors from China. How does a blanket I-526 expedite work? A blanket I-526 expedite for a regional center is adjudicated in 2 weeks to 6 months rather than the current 15 months to 24 months of regular USCIS processing. Projects with a blanket I-526 expedite have a dedicated adjudicator or two whose only full time job is to process applications for that specific project's investor applications. The project has the names, phone numbers and direct emails of the adjudicators, and are able to reach them as needed. Often instead of sending routine RFEs regarding investor applications, the adjudicators reach out directly to the project by phone or email asking for the additional information they need. Not only is this faster processing, but this is great service-- Royal, Red-carpet, Rolls-Royce service from USCIS. There are five kinds of EB5 expedites: (1) I-924 Expedite (2) Individual I-526 Expedite (3) Individual I-829 Expedite (4) Blanket I-526 Expedite (5) Blanket I-829 Expedite. The individual I-526 and I-829 expedites depend on individual circumstances of particular investors--and are independent of the project, so we are not discussing those here. We have not heard of blanket I-829 expedites and are not sure if these are even possible. So we are discussing only I-924 expedites and blanket I-526 expedites herein. To the best of our knowledge, USCIS has approved I-924 expedites in approximately 15 instances, sometimes approval has come in just a few days. Sometimes a I-924 expedite is granted Sua Sponte--without even having to ask for an expedite. In our perspective, the standard for granting an I-924 expedite to a project appears to be lower than granting a blanket I-526 expedite to a project--for getting a I-924 expedite, the project needs to meet the expedite criteria for *commencing* the project, whereas to get a blanket I-526 expedite, a project needs to meet the expedite criteria for *completion* of the project. We believe that there have been barely 6 situations where USCIS has approved a blanket I-526 expedite; only 2 of which projects are currently in the market. Please note that the USCIS expedite criteria apply to many other kinds of immigration applications and petitions such as asylum, family immigration etc., but USCIS appears to be using a significantly higher standard for these criteria when applied to blanket I-526 expedite requests. We are not an immigration law firm--please talk to your immigration attorney to explore whether a blanket I-526 expedite is possible for your project - the attorney will apply your particular facts and circumstances to USCIS's 7 expedite criteria, and using the attorney's experience and professional judgement, will give you considered advice. Everyone wants a blanket I-526 expedite but do you really need it? Several dozen applications for blanket I-26 expedites are being prepared as best as we can tell. We expect that the overwhelming majority of them will be denied, but of course this is up to USCIS's discretion. What if you cannot get a blanket I-526 expedite? Is all lost then? Maybe not....

  • Article: Federal Judge Rules Government Must Reunite Thousands More Separated Families By Katie Shepherd for Immigration Impact

    Federal Judge Rules Government Must Reunite Thousands More Separated Families by Katie Shepherd for Immigration Impact In recent weeks, alarming stories have surfaced indicating that thousands more children were forcibly separated from their parents at the southern border than originally thought. In response to this and earlier reports that the government had begun separating parents as early as 2017, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) asked a federal judge to expand the scope of its lawsuit challenging family separation. Last week, U.S. District Court Judge Dana Sabraw did just that, adding hundreds of separated families to the class action lawsuit which led to the ostensible end of last summer’s family separation policy. What does this groundbreaking court ruling mean? It confirms that the government was in fact implementing a policy of family separation far in advance of any formal announcement—despite assurances that a policy never existed . It also means that the government may now be required to reunite all migrant families who were separated between July 1, 2017 and June 25, 2018. The ACLU’s lawsuit, Ms. L v. ICE, was originally filed to challenge the government’s policy of separating families, alleging violations of the Constitution’s due process clause and federal law protecting the right to seek asylum. The newly expanded class covers any family that was separated by the government after July 1, 2017. This development comes as we near the one-year anniversary of the Trump administration’s announcement of their “Zero Tolerance” policy. Last October, the Office of the Inspector General (OIG), a government watchdog group, reported about the earlier family separation: “Thousands of children may have been separated [from their parents] during an influx that began in 2017, before the accounting required by the Court, and the [Department of Health and Human Services] has faced challenges in identifying separated children.” The inspector general exposed this “ pilot program, ” which operated in the El Paso, Texas sector. The program outlined in the OIG report ran from June to November 2017. According to Judge Sabraw , “like the current class members, they too were separated from their children.” Even though they were not found to be unfit or present a danger, “they were not reunited with their children.” Meanwhile, earlier this month, twenty nine parents from Central America who were separated from their children and then deported returned to the U.S. border, demanding asylum hearings and to be reunited with their children. These families represent just a fraction of the parents reportedly deported without their children. Just last week, the government identified an additional 471 parents who had been deported without their children who may be covered under the Ms. L v. ICE order. It remains to be seen how many of the separated families will actually be reunified by the U.S. government. Officials with the HHS, the agency charged with the care and custody of unaccompanied and separated children, failed to keep track of whether separated children were released to other family members or reunified directly with their parents. Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen’s recent refusal before Congress to acknowledge that the Trump administration’s “zero tolerance” policy was a policy of family separation suggests that courts and advocates must continue to keep the pressure on to deliver justice to those harmed by family separation. This post originally appe...

Article: After Shutdown Loss, Trump Doubles Down on Immigration in His New Budget By Aaron Reichlin-Melnick for Immigration Impact Blogging: Mexican Pleads Guilty to Conspiracy to Harbor Undocumented Workers By Bruce Buchanan Blogging: USCIS Allows Premium Processing For All H-1b Petitions By Chris Musillo Blogging: On the Morality of Deporting Criminals By Jason Dzubow Blogging: Report: Trump will close all overseas USCIS offices as the latest move in his wide ranging assault on all non-white legal immigration By Roger Algase News: CRS Report on US Asylum Policy Focus: Immigration Attorneys and Securities Liabilities ILW , being an immigration law publisher for the past 20 years, cares deeply about the long term health of the immigration bar. ILW has the best interest of the immigration bar in our heart, and we have a long track record bearing this out. We want to bring a point to the attention of the immigration bar. We talk regularly to securities attorneys in the course of our business. Some of them have pointed out to us that most immigration attorneys are making an elementary mistake of suggesting to their clients "good" regional centers or "how to find good RCs". If an immigration attorney were to suggest a project is "good" that creates a securities liability for the attorney. An immigration attorney can fully legitimately evaluate any immigration aspects of the project, such as the job count without incurring any securities liability whatsoever. However, saying the project is "good" or "short-listed" based on such things as deal structure, deal term, location, track record or any criteria is tantamount to recommending an investment which opens the immigration attorney to securities liability. The liability of this kind is not just limited to professional liability, but extends to personal liability. You are welcome to check this with a securities attorney. We are making no claim regarding the ethics of directing investors to specific Regional Centers--we are simply pointing out the liability that act is burdened with it even if it is within the bounds of securities laws. A typical $15,000 I-526 attorney fee is a very small premium to underwrite insurance on a $500K investment over 5 years--and there is no reason why an immigration attorney should shoulder such unnecessary risk, opening themselves to an out of proportion risk for a relatively small reward. By suggesting to an investor that an RC or project is good, the attorney is leaving the realm of providing legal advice and entering the world of providing financial advice. Typically, in order to do so, a person should be either a representative of a registered broker-dealer, or be a registered investment adviser. Those two classes of individuals are regulated, trained and held to a standard of professional conduct, which if they follow, insulates them from potential liability in the event that an investment doesn’t work out as expected. A lawyer who dispenses financial advice will be held to the standard of these investment professionals. If they do not follow the professional standards, then personal liability will apply and it is the kind of liability that is typically disclaimed by legal malpractice insurance. Historically, Chinese investors have been reluctant to sue, but that is not true of investors of other nationalities like India. Also, remember that almost the entire bulk of EB-5 investments have taken place during an economic upswing from 2008 to the present. The EB-5 industry has no...

  • Article: After Shutdown Loss, Trump Doubles Down on Immigration in His New Budget By Aaron Reichlin-Melnick for Immigration Impact

    After Shutdown Loss, Trump Doubles Down on Immigration in His New Budget by Aaron Reichlin-Melnick for Immigration Impact After weeks of tense negotiations, Congress averted a second government shutdown last month by reaching a bipartisan agreement on the Fiscal Year (FY) 2019 budget—a budget which gave President Trump very little of his border demands . Undeterred, the president made a budget request for the next fiscal year on Monday. He called for $8.6 billion in border wall funding , far more than what Congress agreed to in February. In addition to astronomical wall funding, the Trump administration is requesting funds for an even greater expansion of immigration detention than ever before. Although the FY 2019 budget requires Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to lower the amount of people they detain to 40,520 by September 2019, the new budget would allow ICE to detain up to 54,000 people—the highest level in the history of the agency. Another major change would be the creation of a border security slush fund that would permit ICE to expand detention even further. The slush fund, which the administration calls “Border Security and Immigration Enforcement Fund,” would essentially take money from legal immigrants. The slush fund would be bankrolled by mandatory fees immigrants pay to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) for legal immigration benefits, such as visas or citizenship applications. This new slush fund would allow ICE to expand detention capacity beyond the 54,000 beds requested from Congress, up to 60,000 beds. The money would also to be used to increase family detention beds to 10,000. This would triple the administration’s current capacity to lock up parents together with their children. All of this would be paid for by immigrants and American businesses applying for benefits, placing the costs of locking up children on many of those who oppose it. In addition, the budget request calls for a significant increase in personnel, calling for $192 million to hire 750 Border Patrol agents and 171 new Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers at ports of entry. However, the Border Patrol has struggled for years with hiring more agents, despite Congress repeatedly budgeting for new hires. From FY 2017 to FY 2018, the Border Patrol managed to hire a net 11...

  • March 12 - Surge in EB-5 Investments

    March 12 - Surge in EB-5 Investments

    Comment: Surge in EB-5 Investments EB-5 investments have always had a choppy pattern through out this decade--they have never come in as a steady, smooth flow. The investments have always occurred in spikes followed by periods of lull. These spikes have been driven by government deadlines, such as the perennial re-authorization circus. From Quarterly I-526 filing stats USCIS publishes you can see that spikes occur before government deadlines soaking up the pipeline of existing leads, and cause lulls after the deadline because of depleted lead pipelines. Historically, the higher the spike, the lower and longer the lull. EB-5 issuers need to take advantage of the spikes, unless they have a multi-year time horizon for their raises. With the publication of the new EB-5 regulation looming, a mini-spike prior to the publishing of the regulation is already under way. Once the regulation is published, we expect a massive spike in global EB-5 investments as a result of the increased investment amounts. We expect 1000-2000 investments from India during this spike, and another 1000-2000 from rest of the world in the same time-frame. The only country untouched by the regulation will be China due to retrogression. For the same reason, Vietnam will have a smaller spike. Because Indian retrogression has not begun, we expect that India will experience a major spike in EB-5 investments. There will also be significant spikes in Brazil, South Korea, Taiwan, South Africa, Mexico, Russian and Turkey. These ten countries will account for 90% of world EB-5 market--rest of the world accounting for only 10% split across multitudes of countries. When the regulation is published, issuers may want to cancel all vacations, minimize sicknesses, and equip your offices with sleeping bags and coffee to make hay while the sun shines. When the lull comes, your staff can take the deferred vacations and recharge. Issuers may also want to consider bringing all marketing plans forward, and start pushing before the regulation is published. No one knows how much grace period we will have after the regulation is published--it is better to start now to position yourself best for the new regulation. In light of the fact that EB-5 investments have had a pattern of spikes and lulls throughout this decade, we encourage everyone in the EB-5 industry to plan on making the best of the current spike. P.S. The EB-5 Modernization Regulation has been sent to OIRA/OMB to be published as a Final Rule, which includes a massive increase in investment amounts to $1.3 million/$1.8 million, and Centralized TEA designations. There will surely be a grace period, 30-days or 60-days, prior to the new EB-5 rule going into effect. Once the regulation is published with the grace period in black-and-white, India will rocket forward in investments with perhaps 1000-2000 investments during the grace period, and perhaps another 1000-2000 investments will materialize from other countries during the same time. ILW is conducting many events to ensure that issuers can make the most of this opportunity, please write to webmaster@ilw.com for more info, or call us at 1-212-545-0818, or get info online.

    News: USCIS Resumes Premium Processing for All H-1B Petitions

    USCIS Resumes Premium Processing for All H-1B Petitions USCIS will resume premium processing on Tuesday, March 12, for all H-1B petitions. If you received a request for evidence (RFE) for a pending petition, you should include the RFE response with the premium processing request. When an H-1B petitioner properly requests the agency’s premium processing service, USCIS guarantees a 15-day processing time. If we do not take certain adjudicative action within the 15‑calendar day processing time, USCIS refunds the petitioner’s premium processing service fee and continues with expedited processing of the petition. If Your H-1B Petition Was Transferred If you received a transfer notice for a pending H-1B petition, and you are requesting premium processing service...

    David Nachman's Top Ten Reasons Why Willing Prospective H-1B Employers Should Do H-1B Visas For Willing H-1B Candidates by Michael Phulwani, Esq., David Nachman, Esq.and Ludka Zimovcak, Esq. Every year at about this time, U.S. Employers approach the Immigration and Nationality Lawyers and Immigration Attorneys at the NPZ Law Group often asking us for the reasons why they should consider doing the H-1B visa. Here are the TOP TEN REASONS we give to them. David Letterman, eat your heart out . . . 10. By doing an H-1B visa sooner, rather than, later, the prospective H-1B employer and employee allow themselves time in the event that the H-1B is not approved in the current H-1B cycle. Some employers delay the process and have prospective H-1B employees remain in OPT status. While, in some cases, this may be good for tax purposes, it decreases the chance of getting an H-1B because the prospective H-1B employer and employee miss-out on a "second bite at the apple" by not being able to make a second (and sometime third) H-1B cycle petition. 9. H-1B Employers and H-1B Employees do NOT displace U.S. workers. The LCA Form 9035 requires that the H-1B employer represent that the federally mandated prevailing wages are being paid to the prospective H-1B employee so as NOT to displace any U.S. workers. The U.S. employer is also required to make other attestations in connection with the LCA to...
