US Immigration Issues for Businesses, their Founders, Investors and Employees

The Trump administration has materially changed the landscape of immigration law and policy in the United States. Without passing any new legislation, we have seen a fundamental shift in the way current immigration laws and policies are being implemented. We see that an entirely new approach is being taken to immigration enforcement both at the border and inside the US. The fate of the so-called “DREAMERS” remains uncertain. Some of these changes profoundly impact the competitiveness of the high-tech industry in Silicon Valley.

During this seminar, we will focus on:

- The challenges that the Trump administration poses to an economy that relies on highly trained workers to compete in a global environment
- Visa options available for foreign entrepreneurs
- How to find the right work visa for the right employee
- The do’s and don’ts of hiring foreign students and interns

The objective of this seminar is to:

- Show how foreign-born entrepreneurs and high-skilled professionals can stay in the United States, start and work for their companies-without being deported!
- Explain the basics of how US business’ can hire and retain foreign-born talent.
