Start-Up Companies Still Fighting for H-1Bs
Despite U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services' announcement two years ago to improve visa options for entrepreneurs and start-ups, obstacles still impede H-1B approval. With H-1B season in full swing, read AILA Member Ekaterina Powell's tips on preparing strong petitions for start-ups.

AILA Member Juan Rocha shares the story of one of his impoverished clients, who was deported to Mexico, a country he hadn't been to since first leaving it as a baby. This heartbreaking but all-too-familiar story underscores the need for the right to court-appointed counsel for indigent immigrants in removal proceedings.
