Seis cambios de Inmigración bajo el Presidente Trump -- lo que anticipamos

Muchos estaban tan asombrados por el triunfo electoral de Trump que no habían reflexionado sobre los cambios específicos que pudo, y probablemente se hará una vez que llegue a la Presidencia el 20 de enero del 2017. Aquí una lista de seis cosas que el presidente Donald Trump, probablemente cambie en la actual política de inmigración:
1. DACA. Acción diferida para los llegados en la infancia, se hizo efectiva a partir del 15 de junio del 2012, y ha proporcionado permisos de trabajo y alivio del temor de la deportación a más de 750,0000 mujeres jóvenes indocumentadas y varones de 15 a 31, que vinieron aquí cuando eran niños y se graduaron en nuestros colegios y universidades. Prácticamente todos ellos trabajan, pagan impuestos, tienen sus propios vehículos, y contribuyen a nuestra sociedad. Es prácticamente seguro que el Presidente Trump finalice este programa el 20 de enero de 2017, como ha prometido hacer. Lo que es incierto es si él permitirá que aquellos con permisos de trabajo visi…

Six Changes to Immigration Under President Trump -- What we expect.

Many were so shocked by Trump's election that they had not given thought to the specific changes he could, and likely will make once he becomes President on January 20, 2017.  Here is a list of six things that President Trump is likely to changes in current immigration policy:

Virtually all of them work, pay taxes, own cars, and contribute to our society.  It is virtually certain that President Trump will terminate this program on January 20, 2017, as he has promised to do. What is uncertain is whether he will allow those with work permits that would remain facially valid to keep working until the end of their allotted time. We believe he will, as it would be the easiest…

MUST Read Decision Regarding I-9 Penalties and Statute of Limitations for Employers!

On October 25, 2016, an administrative law judge with the Office of the Chief Administrative Hearing Office (“OCAHO”) held that U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (“ICE”) waited too long to file allegations against, St. Croix Personnel Services Inc. (“St. Croix”) a personnel services company for incomplete or incorrect I-9 forms for some of its employees. There is a five year statute of limitations for assessing penalties against an employer who fails to correctly complete an I-9 form.The issue in the case was when that statute of limitations begins to run.ICE argued that the errors they discovered on certain I-9 forms were not time-barred because the forms were not initiated correctly and errors not cured until February and March 2012, which was within five years of the complaint being filed in July 2015.

Alternatively, St. Croix argued that because the last of the eight employees was hired in October 2007, the statute of limitations for any and all I-9 errors ran out by October …
