The Future of Employment-based Immigration Under the Trump Administration

Date: June 08, 2017

Time: 8:00–10:00 a.m.

Location: Nixon Peabody LLP, 100 Summer Street, 25th Floor, Boston, MA 02110

Over the course of the historic 2016 election, then candidate Trump made numerous statements regarding his immigration policy and how that policy would “Make America Great Again.”

Now that we are over 100 days into the era of President Trump, numerous uncertainties regarding President Trump’s immigration policy remain, but based on actions to date we can begin to separate fact from campaign rhetoric. From highly controversial executive orders calling for travel bans, the defunding of sanctuary jurisdictions, and the review and revision of the H-1B visa program, to name a few, it is clear that immigration reform remains a high priority to President Trump.

However, as evident from the various court decisions blocking the implementation and enforcement of several executive orders, it is clear that the president’s authority over immigration policy and reform only goes so far.

What’s next and what is on the horizon? The future of employment-based immigration will certainly be impacted, but how?

Please join us on June 8 to discuss the new administration and potential implications for foreign national workers and employers both domestically and abroad. Topics we will address include:

  • What has the president accomplished to date, and what does that say for things to come?
  • What authority does the president have over immigration reform, and what role will Congress and others play in the future of immigration policy?
  • What is the future of the H-1B visa program in light of increased focus on H-1B fraud and abuse?
  • How can employers remain in compliance in an age of immigration uncertainty?
