Immigration Law Questions? Ask an Immigration Lawyer.
I was just wondering if the new immigration reform bill will likely give a work visa to foreign nationals that want to work in homes and will allow international students to work legally in the U.S. Do you think those things will happen soon in the future?
When should the new immigration bill pass
both the House and the Senate? Will it then
allow foreigners to work legally as domestic
workers in homes,hotels and restaurants and
will the employers who hire these workers be
required to use the E-Verify system that some convenient stores are using?
As for when it will pass, not til fall now b/c Congress is going on their summer break.
Thank you very much for the information. I havea friend who is 31,is Mexican and she would
like to work for an american company however she
is interested in the sales field. Will the law allow
sales associates in retail stores to work legally
under this law,do the employees have to speak
English and how long will it take those that qualify
to get a Social Security card and the work permit?
Another thing,how can home employers use the E-Verify system with their employees?
Will also international students be allowed to work
with the new law?
Will the law allow sales associates in retail stores to work legallyunder this law,
Unlikely, those are not traditional shortage occupations.
do the employees have to speak
Historically temporary workers have not had any language skill requirement
and how long will it take those that qualify
Most likely the same amount of time it takes for other temporary work visas - approx. 3 months processing time. Then they would immediately be eligible to apply for their SSN
The home owner applies for a Employer tax Identification Number and then registers with E=Verify online like all employers
No because they hold F1 status and cannot hold dual W status at the same time.
How can the foreigners know who can hire them
under this law? Ads or will there be a list of people
that can hire them? Can foreigners of all ages from
all over the world work under that law?There will
be more people coming to the US.
under this law?
The same way foreigners find jobs here in the US now. Actually, the same way we all find jobs now, friends, family, ads, etc
Ads or will there be a list of people
that can hire them?
There won't be any lists.
Can foreigners of all ages from
The regulations when the law is passed will be written by USCIS and the eligibility criteria will be in those.
There is a limit of 45,000 per year. That could change before the law is passed.
Will all employers who hire domestic workers
be required to use the E-Verify system? I am
asking this because some people in the U.S.
don't have computers at home nor do they know
how to use one (especially the elderly).
Very interesting point! However, you would need to contact your senator's office and give them this input!
So far that is what the senate version says and the House has not drafted their bill because they went on vacation so you should contact your Rep in the House, as well.
