Recently added recordings include:

  • The ICE-Man Cometh
    Clients attending routine ICE check-ins for the Intensive Supervision Appearance Program (ISAP) and similar programs may now face being arrested. Panelists will discuss how to prepare clients holistically for an ICE interview so that they know what to expect and will be ready for all eventualities.
  • Preparing for the New EU Data Privacy Rules
    Special Recording Price for Members: $99
    Practitioners who believe the EU's new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), set to go into effect in May 2018, won't affect their practices and they can simply ignore them are in for a rude awakening. As international rules on these issues continue to change at a fast pace, U.S. immigration lawyers will need to navigate various country specific regulations (while concurrently complying with a panoply of U.S. federal and state laws) to ensure that they are in compliance on a global basis, and that client information is securely maintained.
  • Effect of Jennings v. Rodriguez Decision on Detainee Advocacy
    Special Recording Price for Members: $59
    Jennings v. Rodriguez. The decision held that INA §§235(b), 236(a), and 236(c) do not allow periodic bond hearings for those subject to pre-final order mandatory detention because they are considered "arriving aliens" or because of certain types of criminal convictions. The Court did not decide the constitutionality of prolonged or indefinite detention in these cases. Our panel of experts will explain how this decision affects advocacy for clients subject to mandatory detention.
  • Investing in Foreign Citizenship for U.S. Immigration Benefits
    Approximately 17 countries have citizenship by investment (CBI) programs. Presently, only one of them has an investment treaty with the United States: Grenada. For nationals of many countries around the world that have no investment treaties with the United States, obtaining CBI in Grenada and then applying for an E-2 visa at the U.S. consulate is the best (and often only) option to create and work for a U.S. business. As an added advantage, it completely avoids USCIS and its restrictive policies. Finally, third-country citizenship is becoming of increasing importance to other clients who are faced with a travel ban or fear returning to their home countries.
  • Bond and Enforcement Priorities
    Special Recording Price for Members: $59
    While prior enforcement priorities focused mainly on those immigrants with significant criminal records, ICE's new enforcement priorities cast every undocumented immigrant into a broad net of detention and removal. Therefore, assuring your client of his or her bond eligibility, and knowing when and how to achieve that bond, is essential when practicing in the current political climate. The panelists will discuss bond jurisdiction for "arriving aliens," credible fear, parolees, and other noncitizens.
  • H-2B Visas and How to Prepare for Fiscal Year 2019
    Special Recording Price for Members: $99
    For attorneys planning to file H-2B visas during Fiscal Year 2019, the first available filing date is coming soon. On July 3, the Chicago National Processing Center (CNPC) will begin accepting ETA 9142B Temporary Labor Certification Applications for employers with start dates of October 1. The panelists will review strategies and filing tips for employers seeking visas from the 33,000 H-2B visas available between October 1 and March 30. On June 1, the U.S. Department of Labor announced its protocol for processing and acceptance of labor certifications requesting a start date on or after October 1. The speakers will examine the announcement as well as compare strategies for navigating the ever-changing H-2B landscape.
