Virginia, US
On January 20, 2017, Donald Trump was inaugurated as President of the United States.  With immigration playing a big part in the presidential campaign, changes to U.S. immigration law and policy are likely to impact not only refugee admissions and humanitarian issues, but business immigration law as well.
 
While changes to some government policies and procedures can be made quickly, rescission of longstanding regulations will take longer.  In the longer term, new legislation related to immigration can also be expected in the new Congress.
 
What seems certain is that more government resources will be devoted to immigration enforcement, not just along the U.S.-Mexico border, but also in the interior of the United States.  With an expected rise in investigations and audits of employers, compliance with the complicated immigration rules and regulations will be more important than ever.
 
News related to changes in U.S. immigration law and policy will be posted on an ongoing basis under Alerts.  Check back frequently for updates.
