Immigration & Naturalization Institute (45th Annual)
November 19, 2012 - November 20, 2012
CLE - Live Seminar
This year’s program will examine key immigration trends and hot topics for 2012. You will hear from Washington insiders about what is likely to happen with immigration legislation during this election year. Will anything move on bills eliminating the per-country limit for employment-based cases, or increasing immigration opportunities for high-skilled workers? Will the Obama Administration’s recent actions on business immigration make a difference? Will adjudications at the agencies become more restrictive if we have a new Administration? What can we expect from the Department of Labor - more supervised recruitment, fees, etc.? What can employers expect with regard to ICE enforcement and Fraud Detection and National Security (FDNS) activity during the election year - and if there is a change in administration?
Join us at this year’s Institute to hear an outstanding faculty of top-level government officials, along with leading practitioners in the field, to discuss recent reforms and developments that impact your practice. Topics will include new immigration initiatives in Washington and around the country, immigrant and nonimmigrant processing issues, and new laws and policies related to enforcement.
