Lawsuit seeks the secrets behind the H-1B lottery

An attorney expresses real interest in this lawsuit as none of her 12 petitions this year was selected. With about 236,000 petitioned for 85,000 available H-1b visas, only about 36% of the petitioners will be happy! With that said, my office's 42% is actually a pretty good turn out this year! However, still quit a scrutiny for those who did not win the lottery!

Two business immigration groups have filed a lawsuit seeking information about how the nation's H-1B visa distribution system really works.

Taiwan, considering a country, can participate in the H-2A and H-2B Guestworker Program, effective Jan. 18, 2016.

Taken directly from the web page shared below:

* With respect to all references to “country” or “countries” in this document, it should be noted that the Taiwan Relations Act of 1979, Pub. L. No. 96-8, Section 4(b)(1), provides that “[w]henever the laws of the United States refer or relate to foreign countries, nations, states, governments, or similar entities, such terms shall include and such laws shall apply with respect to Taiwan.” 22 U.S.C. § 3303(b)(1). Accordingly, all references to “country” or “countries” in the regulations governing whether nationals of a country are eligible for H-2 program participation, 8 CFR 214.2(h)(5)(i)(F)(1)(i) and 8 CFR 214.2(h)(6)(i)(E)(1), are read to include Taiwan. This is consistent with the United States’ one-China policy, under which the United States has maintained unofficial relations with Taiwan since 1979.

The H-2B program allows U.S. employers or U.S. agents who meet specific regulatory requirements to bring foreign nationals to the United States to fill temporary nonagricultural jobs. A U.S. emplo

LOS ANGELES – The efforts of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) helped lead to the successful sentencing of a San Gabriel immigration consulting business and one of his employees for participating in a long-running scheme to prepare and file fraudulent asylum applications that made phony claims of religious persecution on behalf of hundreds of Chinese nationals. Haoren Ma, 50, of San Gabriel, the owner of New Arrival Immigration Service, was sentenced April 28 to 4½ years in federal prison after pleading guilty to conspiracy, immigration document fraud and aggravated identity theft. Ma’s employee, Minghan Dong, 49, of San Gabriel, was sentenced on Monday, May 5 to one year and one day in prison for conspiracy to commit immigration document fraud.

USCIS learned about activity in January 2009 when U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers intercepted a package containing a stuffed animal that contained five fraudulent Chinese passports. The package was being shipped to an address used as a mail drop by New Arrival Immigration Service. This package tipped the USCIS Los Angeles Asylum Office and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) to further investigate filings by the New Arrival Immigration Service. Officers from the L.A. Asylum Office worked with HSI agents to bring the case to prosecution.

Many of the asylum applications prepared by the defendants contained nearly identical accounts of purported persecution, including descriptions of underground church meetings that led to arrests and torture by Chinese authorities. As part of the scheme, Ma and Dong provided their clients with detailed written materials and audio tapes on Christianity to help them prepare for their asylum interviews.

“We are very pleased with this outcome,” said David Radel, Acting L.A. Asylum Office Director with USCIS. “It is an excellent example of federal agencies working together to combat fraud and maintain the integrity of our immigration system. USCIS is committed to identifying those who may have illegally obtained asylum through this fraudulent scheme and providing this information to our investigative colleagues.”

Haoren Ma operated an immigration business, but was neither an attorney nor an accredited representative. USCIS encourages people who need help filing an application for immigration benefits to seek assistance from the right place and from people who are authorized to help. For ideas on how to find legal services and avoid scams, go to www.uscis.gov/legaladvice.

Thanks to USCIS efforts, HSI investigators linked the defendants to more than 800 asylum applications filed since 2000, making it one of the largest asylum fraud cases uncovered in the Los Angeles area in recent years.

You can file USCIS forms yourself, but many people choose to have help. You may need help writing in the answers to questions on USCIS forms or translating documents into English. You can get this type of limited help from anyone. This person should only charge you a small fee and not claim to have…

移民局2/4/2014公布修改N-400表格 到5/5/2014不再接受舊的表格。
新的表格有21頁長,除了基本資料以外,並增加詢問申請人安全背景調查。表格比以前複雜。符合條件的申請者一樣可以申請Fee Wavier。

在大家熟悉的投資移民項目裡大多是以 L-1簽證(跨國企業經理主管或專業人士) 或EB-5(50萬或100萬投資移民)。 有許多人誤以為這兩者項目是一樣,甚至畫上等號。 兩者雖然都需申請者在美國有一定的資金投資, 但兩者的做法和程序及規定卻不相同。

EB-5投資移民看起來需要龐大資金,但在申請的步驟確比較簡潔。

移民局基本上只需規定合法資金50萬或100萬(因投資地點而異)進入到美國做為有風險的投資。投資者須準備文件說明資金來源,例如賺取、贈與、繼承等等。在美的投資可以是參加移民投資項目或自己成立並經營公司,或是投資已存在的公司。只要具備以上條件就可以向移民局提出臨時綠卡申請。在兩年之內達到向移民局的規定提供或保持10個工作機會便能提臨時綠卡轉正的申請。 經批准,申請者和其家屬便持有永久居留權。

EB-5投資方是大約在2年左右可以取得條件綠卡即享有一般綠卡持有者的權利,而在4年左右可以取得正式綠卡, 而資金雖在申請前必須全數到位,但如是自行投資項目, 金錢全在自己掌控。再拿到正式綠卡後投資者可自行處理資金和投資項目。若是參加移民項目則一般是五年為期之後依項目的設計辦法取回投資金額。

在介紹完EB-5 過程後, 再詳細了解L-1 的規定及申請流程。

L-1 是一種non-immigrant visa¸(非移民簽證)只是一般為期一年至三年的居留簽證,而非Permanent residency 正式居留權。而跨國企業經理或主管的最基本要件顧名思義是必須在美國以外有一企業架構,所以只適於企業經營者或企業經理和主管,除此之外受惠者(Beneficiary) 必須在過去3年裡有一年的時間受雇於申請者.

許多人都認為辦理L-1簽證所需的資金遠少於辦理EB-5其實不盡然。雖然L-1開始只需要初步的投資計畫和公司租約,但那只屬申請首次為期一年的L-1簽證(為期一年讓受益者留美將在美分公司打點上軌道)若想為受益人的簽證延期則需要準備文件說明公司已上軌道正在健康營運中並且須受益人留守原本之職位。這時申請者(公司方)必須出示頭一年之營運報表和當時的公司架構。 一個足以達到移民局檢視L-1簽證分公司的門檻大約在8~10個員工。 所以到這階段申請者需要的花費包括公司的開銷、營運及人事成本。下一步才可為受益者申請正式居留權.

因為L-1和EB-5的基本要件和程序的不同, 如有意向辦理投資移民建議和律師詳談以你個人的條件和需求做出一個符合你的移民計畫。

美國政府在1994就已通過了Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) 為了保護家暴受害者. 凡是輔合條件者則可以自己申請合法居留而不需美國公民或綠卡配偶提出申請.而提出此申請的必須符合以下條件:
受害者必須是美國公民/綠卡施暴者的配偶或小孩
有真正的婚姻關係 (或真正婚姻結束後的兩年以內)
與公民或綠卡施暴者同住在美國(或曾經同住在美國)
自己可證明為良好人民
如被遞解出境會對自身造成extreme hardship
最好提供以下文件:
1. 施暴者的公民或綠卡身分證明
2. 結婚證書
3. 與施暴者在美國同住過的證明
4. 正居住美國的證明
5. 暴力的證明
6. 良民證明
7. Extreme hardship的證明
8. 真實婚姻證明

除了家暴之外, 美國政府也鼓勵非美國公民或居民協助打擊罪犯而提供U Visa. 當非美國公民或居民受到恐嚇,性侵,綁架,威脅,等等不同類型的暴力攻擊時,非美國公民協助當地警察辦案後,可申請U Visa最多長達4年在美居留。

家庭暴力是很多移民遇到最切身但又難以啟齒的問題. 雖然亞裔人士並不是受到家暴最頻繁的族群,卻是最少對外尋求幫助的族群.

由於傳統的社會和家庭觀念,許多亞裔婦女不敢也不懂得保護自己的安全和權益.被傷害時不敢離開家,不敢報警,不敢求助,不敢看醫生,不敢向先生說不. 甚至有許多人長期受到家庭暴力迫害還全然不知. 暴力不單是指身體上的傷害,還包括了心理,言語,和經濟上的迫害. 做為一個移民律師,常聽到,我先生(或太太)不肯替我辦身份,還說要是我不順從,他就可以報移民局將我遞解出境. 雖然這不昰一個可以輕易回答是或不昰的問題,但這絕對不像這些受虐婦女所認為的昰他們的唯一選擇.

勇於面對,是對家暴最好的反擊.

戴嘉慕律師移民教室---申請2015年度H-1b即將在今年4月1號開放. 然而去年2014年度的H-1b申請必須由抽籤決定是否被接受申請案件.今年度的申請極有可能有一樣的狀況, 甚至有過之而無不及.許多在校即將畢業的留學生和持有OPT正在實習工作的新社會人都將面臨比以往更多的難題,包括雇主是否願意為員工申請H-1b簽證,薪資是否達到標準,OPT以及H-1b的銜接期間工作的合法性,再加上如果不能幸運被抽中時又該怎麼辦.許多持有OPT的雇員如果沒能被抽中,順利提交申請,便很快要面臨OPT的期滿,必須要在60天緩衝期到期時離境.

12月畢業申請OPT的新社會人雖說有優勢(因為有兩年申請H-1b的機會),但在第二年,也將會面臨OPT到期的問題,必須在60天的grace period提交H-1b的申請.在這期間,是不能合法工作的.甚至在這期間如果駕照到期,加州的DMV也會因你沒有合法居留權不受理你的driver’s license renewal.如在此狀況,可以考慮是否繼續讀書深造,保持學生身分.等待以後有更好的工作機會和時機再申請工作簽證.

在此也提到,某些特定的雇主是不受限於每年度的開放名額.這些雇主(H-1b cap exempt employer)包括非營利的學術機構 (not for profit institution of higher education), 非營利學術關係機構(not for profit entity related or affiliated to an institution of higher education), 或非營利研究機構或政府研究機構(not for profit research organization or governmental research organization). 就算你沒有在4月1號提交H-1b申請,你一樣可以在你的OPT還未到期前找到不受限於H-1b的名額的雇主為你提出申請.

申請H-1b簽證手續是非常複雜繁瑣,需要審慎專業處理案件的律師團隊,即使你無法申請H-1B簽證, Muky Dai 律師會為每個案件做出最合適的規劃。請盡早預約.電話626-888-3982
