On March 18, 2021, the House of Representatives passed both the Dream and Promise Act and the Farm Workforce Modernization Act. These immigration bills, if passed by the Senate, could be a huge step in the reform process for immigration law in America — and give hope to millions of immigrants and their families. These bills create a pathway to citizenship for many immigrants, both documented and undocumented.

Read on to learn more about the Dream and Promise Act and the Farm Workforce Modernization Act, and what the passing of each would mean for immigrants in America as well as immigration law in general. If you have any further questions about either of these bills or anything else immigration law-related, the team at Zohar Law PLLC in Manhattan is here to help.

On Monday, March 8, 2021, the White House announced that Venezuelans who are currently present in the United States will be granted Temporary Protected Status (TPS). This Executive Order will allow tens of thousands of Venezuelans to legally remain in the United States on a temporary basis.

In recent years, it’s estimated that 4 million Venezuelans have fled their country due to extreme poverty, hunger, disease, and the repression of President Nicolas Maduro. More than 800,000 of these individuals have sought asylum in other countries and Venezuela has become the top country of origin for asylum seekers in the United States.

If you or a loved one is eligible for TPS status through this Executive Order and would like assistance applying, the team at Zohar Law PLLC in NYC can help. Reach out to us today for a free, no-obligation consultation.

Biden (1).jpg

Elections result in change. This election has renewed hope in rewriting America’s Immigration Policies. President Biden was sworn in as the 46th President of the United States. During his campaign, he promised he would bring sweeping immigration reform and help fix the broken system. As promised, he went to work on day one presenting a sharp new direction than the previous administration. He issued executive orders reversing the Trump travel ban and reinstating DACA. He immediately sent a bill to congress creating a path to citizenship for over 11 million undocumented people in the United States. That bill is in consideration and discussion right now.

The immigration bill sent to congress gives a path to citizenship to anyone who was physically in the United States on or before January 1, 2021. The regulation would give temporary status to those that are here undocumented. Those individuals will be eligible to apply for a green card after five years if they pass criminal and national security background checks and pay their appropriate taxes. Anyone who has already...

As the 2020 Presidential Election comes to an end and Biden is named the new President-Elect, we have to ask ourselves, what effect will this have on immigration? The Trump Administration attacked many of the immigration policies and procedures that were so important to efficiently and humanely process immigrants into America, so how will Biden’s win change all of this?

In today’s blog post from Zohar Law PLLC in NYC, we are going to discuss some of the changes that we are likely to see during the Biden Administration to immigration law. These changes, of course, are based on statements from Biden and his campaign on how he would like to see immigration policy change and reform. And while we cannot predict the exact outcome, as there are many variables that could affect policy change, we are very hopeful for a better future.

In the latest immigration development, on June 22, 2020, President Trump issued a Proclamation extending his previous ban on immigration into the United States and further added a ban on foreign workers. The new ban prevents foreign workers from coming to work in the United States or immigrate to the United States until December 31, 2020. This ban includes employment based immigrant visa’s (green cards filed from abroad) and temporary work visas. The temporary work visas included are H-1B, H-2B, J and L visas. This ban does not affect those who already have a visa and only affects future applicants and those who have not been issued a visa as of June 22, 2020. This also does not affect those already legally in the United States who want to change their status to one of the work visas or adjust their status to get a green card based on employment in the United States.

The United States economy has taken a major downturn from the COVID-19 pandemic. Businesses have been shut down and the unemployment rate has skyrocketed. President Trump lists the plummeting economy as the...

On June 18, 2020, the US Supreme Court ruled against the Trump administration and its end to the DACA program. Chief Justice John Roberts delivered the majority opinion. The court decided that the Trump Administration did not follow proper legal procedures in cancelling the program. In rescinding the DACA Program, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) failed to consider all interests such as a broader renewal date or a more accommodating termination date. Given the mistakes in the cancelling of the program, the court ruled against the Trump administration. This allows the program to remain in place, at least, for now.

The DACA program has protected over 700,000 people in the United States. This court ruling does not mean the DACA program cannot be ended. It means that how the Trump Administration tried to terminate the program in 2017 was legally incorrect. However, the court decision does give the...

Zohar Law in New York City is an immigration attorney who helps immigrants, including Liberians, with their legal status here in the United States and aid them in the process of obtaining Green Cards and US citizenship. We are passionate about helping others who want to live here become citizens.

PATH TO US CITIZENSHIP FOR LIBERIANS

In a defense policy bill signed earlier this month by President Trump, Liberians who have been here for at least five years can now apply for a Green Card. Many Liberians came to the United States from 1989 to 2003 legally when their country was suffering under civil war. They were here under temporary protection, which was scheduled to expire in 2020. Over the years, there have been numerous allowances for Liberians to stay in the United States; however, all of these were temporary solutions...

Immigration law is a highly complex area of law and it is changing every day.

Zohar Law is proud to offer legal aid for immigration services in New York City, including helping our clients secure L-1 visas for themselves and L-2 visas for their family members. The visa process can be complicated, even for nonimmigrant visas like the L-1. If you are looking to obtain an L-1 visa for yourself or your employee, we strongly suggest seeking out the help of a skilled immigration lawyer. We can assist you in navigating the complicated world of immigration visas so you can have as smooth a journey as possible.

WHAT IS AN L-1 VISA?

The L-1 visa is a nonimmigrant visa, meaning it is used by people who are only seeking temporary access to the United States. Nonimmigrant visas can be used for tourism, medical treatment, business, or in the case of the L-1 visa, work.

L-1 visas are typically issued for intracompany transfers. Employers can use this to transfer managers or...

GovernmentShutdown-5ca4c468007bb.jpg

During the recent government shutdown, countless offices and services across the U.S. were adversely affected. While the thousands of furloughed employees will get their back pay, not every aspect of the shutdown is quite as simple to make up for. One of the biggest consequences of the government shutdown is also one that is going to take literal years to compensate for. A vast majority of immigration hearings that had originally been scheduled to take place during the 35-day window between December 22, 2018, and January 25, 2019, ended up getting canceled. If you or someone you love had their immigration case affected by the shutdown, here’s what you should know:

IMMIGRATION HEARINGS AND THE SHUTDOWN

Now, first things first, we should clarify: when we say that the hearings were canceled, it’s just that. The immigration hearing was canceled, but the case itself was not. Not to worry, the estimated 60–80,000 immigration hearings that were canceled will still be heard! However, it...

The government shutdown that started in December of last year caused a lot of chaos across the country. The biggest impact was undoubtedly felt by the estimated 800,000 federal workers who went without pay for a month and a half while the president battled with Congress over the nation’s budget. Beyond furloughed workers, though, nine major federal departments were also affected, largely because of lack of funding. The departments of Agriculture, Commerce, Homeland Security, Housing and Urban Development, Interior, Justice, State, Transportation, and the Treasury were all affected by the government shutdown.

The shutdown started because Congress did not approve the president’s requests for funding to build a border wall along the border with Mexico. Given that immigration was the central point of contention that initiated the shutdown, it makes sense that immigration would also be affected by the government shutdown. If you or a loved one is going through the immigration process, the first step you should take is to...

ImmigrationChanging-5ca4c4546e05a.jpg

If it seems like immigration concerns have been in the news a lot lately, you aren’t wrong. Since the last presidential election, and the lead-up to it, immigration has been an issue of major concern to politicians and the American people. As we reach the midpoint of the current presidential administration, it has become apparent that immigration law is going to continue to be a spotlight topic — and that key changes are occurring. Here’s what you need to know about how immigration has changed (and is changing) during the current presidential administration.

THE TRAVEL BAN

Immigration reform was one of the key stances the President spoke about throughout his campaign for office. In that vein, it makes perfect sense that one of his early acts in office was to enact a travel ban that focused on Muslim-majority countries — specifcially, Yemen, Libya, Somalia, Syria, and Iran. This wasn’t an immigration-specific policy, necessarily, but it did have the effect of seriously curtailing arrivals from those...

Over the centuries that the United States has been an established nation, it has been a land where people from all over the world travel to find relief from political and religious persecution and to partake in the freedoms offered by a democratic society. In many nations across the world, the government is corrupt and its citizens are riddled by fear and violence and are subjected to violations of basic human rights regularly without protection or consequences for the perpetrators. The United States and other democratic nations offer a reprieve from these unjust living conditions and offer hope for a better life. For those who are afraid of persecution in their home country, the United States offers protection by way of political asylum and refugee status. Join us in today’s post as we explore what these terms mean and how they may apply to you and your loved ones.

AMERICA — THE HOPE FOR A BETTER TOMORROW

The terms political asylum and refugee status are often used interchangeably. And, while they are similar, it...

Welcome back to our discussion of the protective measures available to women under immigration law. In part one of this series, we discussed the reasons that special provisions were established for the female population as they are at an increased risk to be the victims of violence and trafficking, and are not afforded the same rights as male counterparts in most parts of the world. And, we also reviewed the U visa available to victims of certain crimes. Join us in part two of this two-part series as we continue the discussion and review T visas and VAWA visas.

REMOVING IMMIGRATION FROM AN ABUSER’S WEAPON CACHE

Visa for victims of human trafficking — T visa

The U visa and the T visa were both created as part of the Victims of Trafficking and Violence Protection Act of 2000. The U visa is for those people who have been victims of crimes and is restricted to 10,000 issued visas annually. The T visa is reserved...

Currently, there are more than 19 million immigrant women and girls living in the United States. Worldwide, violence against women is commonplace, as in many nations women are still considered to be inferior to men and in some countries, are still considered property. Globally, females are at an increased risk or violence, abuse, and trafficking. When women or families immigrate to the United States, immigration status can be used as leverage for perpetrators to inflict violence on women, knowing that their options for seeking help or retaliation are severely limited, especially if they are dependent on the relationship to gain citizenship as a family member to the abusive sponsor, or if they are here illegally.

Abusive spouses can exploit immigration status and the threat of deportation and loss of child custody if their victim seeks help or attempts to leave the situation. Additionally, many immigrants are made to feel as though the American justice system is against them or looking for a reason for deportation. It is for these reasons that immigrant women and girls are...

immigration-waivers-5c12ec015c61a.jpg

There is a book full of reasons why you may not be able to apply for or renew a visa or green card — violated an immigration law, deportation, expired visa, or you were charged with a crime — and many people fear that this means the hope of obtaining naturalization is all but gone. However, immigration waivers exist to help qualifying immigrants to have this decision overturned. An immigration waiver is a legal pardon that may allow you to apply for and be approved for a visa, green card, or naturalization. Join us in today’s post as we discuss some of the specific waivers that are available.

NATURALIZATION IS NEVER OUT OF THE QUESTION

As with anything in life, naturalization as a legal US citizen is governed by clearly defined laws. However, just like every other law, exceptions may be granted on a case-by-case basis. Here are some of the specific waivers that you may be eligible for if your request for a visa, green card, or naturalization has been denied.

How-US-Immigration-Law-Has-Evolved-5c129f484570a.jpg

The United States is a country that was founded by immigrants to a new land and has historically been a safe haven, the beacon of hope, for billions of people over the centuries as a place to find employment, freedom from persecution, and a new chance at life. From the “discovery” and claim of the Americas in 1492 to the nation’s inception as an established country — a declared emancipated from its overseas “owner” and foundation of an independent country — in 1776, it was a free-for-all type of border and coastline. People from all nations came to the Americas and set up their homes and families. It was not until 1819 that immigration became a legal point of contention and the first immigration legislation was passed. Since then, laws and legislation have changed and evolved significantly. Follow along in today’s post as we recap some of the highlights of these changes through the years.1819– Immigration Act of 1819 is enacted, which declared foreigners entering the United States as immigrants. Those entering the country has to supply information to government officials that...

the-k-1-visa-5bbcb3758b5c8.jpg

One of the more popular visas lately is the K-1 visa. Perhaps it’s because it’s wedding season and love is in the air or maybe it’s because people are gearing up to tie the knot when the weather begins to break.

Getting a divorce for anyone can be an emotional process. You have to dismantle the life you created together, go through a custody battle if you have kids, and divide up all of the assets you accumulated with each other.

If you moved to America to be with your spouse who is native to the States, you may be asking yourself whether you’ll be able to stay here.

“Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!” – The New Colossus by Emma Lazarus

In every election, the subject of immigration comes up. During the most recent one, immigration policy reforms were brought to the table again and again and cited as the reason that our economy was weaker or why there weren’t enough jobs for citizens. With the current immigration issues on the table in Congress such as the desire to build a wall to keep out Mexicans or getting rid of DACA, it’s a topic that ignites fury in some and in others empathy. Whatever your feelings might be about immigration, it’s important to explore the question to figure out why it bothers some people while others want to help.

In today’s immigration information blog, we’ll be exploring this hot-button issue to figure out why it’s constantly brought up in elections, it’s often up for reform, and there’s a notion that immigrants are here to...

Becoming a legal citizen isn’t an easy process. It can take years to become a legal citizen in America, which is why it is best to hire an immigration lawyer to ensure the process doesn’t take longer than necessary. Even when you have family members in America, that doesn’t mean you’re automatically able to get a green card to allow you to stay in the country. When you’re an immigrant, you need to have someone on your side fighting to ensure you can become a citizen. By appointing an immigration lawyer, you’re able to do just that. Not only will an immigration attorney fight for the rights of your family members and yourself, but he or she is qualified for your case so there’s a higher chance the process will go through with ease. If you’re an immigrant living in America, especially right now, then to ensure you become a naturalized citizen, take the time to contact an immigration lawyer.
