US Immigration Policy Visas - H-1b, L-1, E, O, TN

A Federal Court Hands Trump Another Loss

On Thursday of this week, a Federal Court, ruled that President Trump had overstepped his authority when he banned certain non-immigrant workers including new H and L visa holders from obtaining visas and seeking entry into the U.S. This action was brought by the US Chamber of Commerce, the National Association of Manufacturers, other business groups and supported by many IT employers. This decision allows persons to immediately seek visa appointments from US Consulates based upon already approved H-1b petitions or Blanket L petitions. A full copy of the decision can be read here.
