New Administration, New Immigration Laws
By Lisa Seifert
I’m here to talk about new immigration law and policy. We have a new administration and I’m excited about that. Everything feels relaxed, positive -- people are hopeful.
But how are you going to know if a law will affect you?
In the past, the previous president would announce things by tweet -- that’s no longer happening, fortunately. We are now back to normal government operations where an agency might report a new memo. Or, Congress might work on a new law or regulation.
An example of that now would be them working on the Dream and Promise Act, which has to do with Dreamers, those who came to this country at a young age and finished their education here. Related to that is the Farmworkers Bill.
These are very exciting potential developments, but they’re not a law. You will know they are a law if the president signs the bill and the news specifically is talking about him signing a bill.
In the meantime, watch on our social media for more announcements and developments. To schedule a personal consultation, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
