What to Expect in 2017 and Beyond for Immigration Law for Employers under Trump Administration

Duration: 60 Minutes
In this webinar, speaker Bruce E. Buchanan, an immigration law attorney, will discuss many of the possible changes by President Trump in the field of immigration law related to employers. These possible changes include substantial changes to the issuance of H-1B visas, OPT/STEM, and TN visas. Additionally, he will discuss possible changes in immigration compliance – more ICE audits, return of ICE raids, mandatory E-Verify.
