New Bush Immigration Proposal


A lot has been written about Bush's new proposal and no doubt more will be as it begins to wend its way through the legislative process. If you just want a succinct overview, try this one prepared by Andrew Galeziowski , one of our shareholders who specializes in immigration, :

---- No amnesty/legalization or immediate path to a green card
---- Forgiveness for prior violations of immigration laws provided to those entering the program
---- Temporary Worker status available for three years, with the potential for renewal.
---- Workers can apply for a green card under existing rules (no new green card program)
---- Workers must pay a one-time fee to register for the program
---- I-9 enforcement to increase
---- US employers must prove unavailability of US workers - suggested methodology will be similar to current H-2B program
