Employment immigration: H-1B visa application numbers drop

When California companies need new employees with certain skill sets, they may feel that they cannot find the proper candidates domestically. As a result, they may consider applicants from other countries. Of course, employment immigration is complicated, and working to obtain the proper work visas for potential employees is no easy or guaranteed feat.

Marrying a U.S. citizen does not automatically grant citizenship

When a person finds the love of his or her life, that individual is not always from the same country. As a result, there may be many hoops to jump through in order to legally marry, if that is the path the couple wishes to take. Some people may think that marrying a United States citizen automatically gives one citizenship status. However, that is not the case.

Raids may have parties wanting more info on U.S. immigration law

In California and other areas of the country, immigration is a touchy subject for many reasons. Often, individuals enter the country in hopes of finding a better life and new opportunities, but many people wonder whether those opportunities should be available to parties who did not enter the country through legal means. U.S. immigration law changes and enforcements are having a considerable impact across the country, especially under the current presidential administration.

Citizen status for Samoans

Many people born on American soil do not have American citizenship rights from birth like all people within the continental United States enjoy. For those born in American Samoa, a group of islands located approximately 2,500 miles from Hawaii, this is their reality. 

Census question regarding citizenship draws lawsuits

Many individuals who are considered undocumented immigrants or even those who have entered the country legally but could still face deportation feel fearful that the government could use any action to force them to leave the country. As a result, many people in California may do their best to remain below the radar in hopes of simply living their lives. However, when questions regarding citizenship could end up in unexpected places, parties may begin to worry even more.
