Immigration attorney Leon Fresco lent some insight on hiring foreign talent in the midst of the Trump Administration's changing policies on employment-based immigration in an article by the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM).
According to Mr. Fresco, as the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) continue to implement policies derived from the president's Buy American and Hire American executive order, the main challenge for employers this year will be "the systematic stagnation that has been imposed globally throughout all aspects of the immigration pipeline, including reductions in premium processing, increased wait times for employment authorization documents, increased scrutiny of all applications and increased costs to employers." He also called USCIS' plans to propose rescinding employment authorization documents for the H-4 spouses of H-1B workers waiting for green cards to be one of the "biggest challenges" in 2019.
