USCIS Suspends Premium Processing Again – Is Simeio or Trump to Blame? By: Brandi knox, Esq. U.S.-based employers will have to wait until February of next year to utilize the government's expedited processing option for cap-subject H-1B visa petitions, H-1B change of employer petitions and certain other H-1B petition types. On August 28, 2018, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced that the temporary suspension of the agency’s premium processing service would be extended until February 19, 2019, and expanded to include additional types of H-1B petitions.  Specifically, the suspension applies to pending fiscal year 2019 H-1B cap cases and, as of September [...]

The American Dream

2018-03-15T20:16:16+00:00

“The American Dream” By: Claudia Rea “The opinions expressed in the following commentary are solely those of the author and do not purport to be those of The Fogle Law Firm.” Ever since I moved to the U.S. I’ve always had a personal conflict with the phrase “The American Dream”. With all honesty, my journey in the U.S. has been a lot of things but not a dream. Throughout ups and downs, sometimes the only thing that kept me going was the conviction that my destiny was to help others. I made it my life’s mission to be an asset to [...]

ICE ARRESTS INCREASE AS DREAMERS DEADLINE PASSES

2018-03-05T16:08:16+00:00

ICE ARRESTS INCREASE AS DREAMERS DEADLINE PASSES A few weeks ago Congress attempted to protect dreamers and provide a much-needed bipartisan immigration solution. Four proposals were brought before the Senate and all four bills failed to get the necessary votes for Congress to keep its word and protect the Dreamers by week’s end. With all the attention surrounding Congress’ open immigration debate in early February, many may not have noticed the large amounts of arrests and ICE raids in the Los Angeles area. Los Angeles, a targeted sanctuary city, has been the focus of the Trump administration due to its reputation [...]

Harsh Immigration Enforcement Continues Under Trump

2018-03-02T20:37:57+00:00

HARSH IMMIGRATION ENFORCEMENT TACTICS CONTINUE AS CHILDREN ARE SEPARATED FROM THEIR PARENTS Separating children from parents seeking asylum is a crisis and the result of a broken immigration system that is constantly being attacked and degraded by the president. The disgusting behavior made possible by Trump’s war on immigration and Congress’ failure to protect dreamers last week devastates the American people and adds to a long list of unmet promises. One of the many heart wrenching stories comes from Molly Hennessy-Fiske with the Los Angeles Times. She reports on a Brazilian woman and her son who were separated at the border in [...]

TRUMP’S THREATS TO VETO IMMIGRATION BILL ADDS PRESSURE TO IMMIGRATION DEBATE

TRUMP’S THREATS TO VETO IMMIGRATION BILL ADDS PRESSURE TO IMMIGRATION DEBATE By:  The Fogle Law Firm, LLC As we continue to keep a close eye on the open immigration debate underway this week, Senator Charles E. Grassley introduced the bill “Secure and Succeed Act.” A proposal that reads as if it was ghost-written by President Trump himself, which of course, he spent no time publicly supporting. “I am asking all senators, in both parties, to support the Grassley bill and to oppose any legislation that fails to fulfill these four pillars – that includes opposing any short-term ‘Band-Aid’ approach, Trump said [...]

TRUMP’S IMMIGRATION IDEAS ATTACK THE FOUNDATION OF AMERICA

TRUMP’S IMMIGRATION IDEAS ATTACK THE FOUNDATION OF AMERICA By: The Fogle Law Firm, LLC Regardless of one’s views on race and ethnicity in America, it does not change the fact that the very identity of the United States is composed of immigrant histories from all over the planet.  If you are not native American then at some point in the family tree your ancestors were not of this land. Just last week Trump praised Elon Musk for the SpaceX launch of the Falcon Heavy, calling it “American ingenuity at its best.” He tweeted: Congratulations @ElonMusk and @SpaceX on the successful #FalconHeavy [...]

Immigration Officers Staking Out Courthouses for Immigrants

2017-11-10T21:28:02+00:00

Immigration Officers Staking Out Courthouses for Immigrants  By:  The Fogle Law Firm, LLC Recent events make us wonder whether there is anything the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) under the Trump Administration will not do to give the appearance that they are actually protecting the country.  They certainly have many in the immigrant communities living in fear of them and law enforcement in general. Part of that fear may come from the fact that there has been an increase in Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents staking out courthouses to detain undocumented immigrants. Although this phenomenon is not new and is [...]
