Into its fourth year, the administration of President Donald J. Trump has dramatically transformed the U.S. immigration system, in bold-brush, sweeping ways but also in small technical details across the immigration portfolio with almost four hundred (400) changes instituting one of the most activist agendas on immigration in modern times, almost exclusively via executive fiat. The administration has reshaped the system in ways unseen in decades, executing - with methodical detail - a plan to drastically narrow humanitarian benefits, increase enforcement, and reduce legal immigration. Please join us at the NJICLE Advanced Immigration Conference to review these major policy changes that sets this administration decidedly apart from its predecessors, and how the election results will impact immigration in 2021. We have a fantastic program planned with excellent speakers who include Jon Baselice (Director; Immigration Policy U.S. Chamber of Commerce; Kristie de Pena (Niskanen Center; The Niskanen Center is a Washington, D.C.-based think tank that advocates immigration reform); Harry Sheinfeld (Formerly with U.S. Department of Labor Solicitor's Office); Charlie Oppenheim; (Chief of the Visa Control and Reporting Division, U.S. Department of State)*(invited awaiting clearance); Mackenzie Eason (Postdoctoral Associate at Cornell Law School in the Migration and Human Rights Program and coauthor of a project examining the use of points-based immigration systems around the world and how such a system might be implemented here in the United States) plus additional speakers who will address current hot topics concerning Employment Based Litigation; H-2B, H-1, L-1, TN border issues and Immigration Enforcement. Each year this conference explores in-depth areas of immigration practice that have undergone critical changes. This year’s program will also address COVID policies which have restricted immigration (and the election results which should be in at that time) to discuss what the future of immigration holds. We will review the types of issues raised in “Requests for Evidence and Notices of Intent to Deny” and the impact of Executive Orders that will affect travel, hiring and visa issuance at least through the end of this year (and maybe longer). Hearing experienced immigration attorneys who are able to provide practical solutions to complex issues is a hallmark of this program which is celebrating its 21st year as a stellar NJICLE presentation.
