Greg Siskind introduces the bulletin with the following overview:-
"Immigration continues to dominate the news and while Congress has yet to pass a single bill on immigration, change continues continue coming from the Executive Branch. One of the most important developments has been the failed implementation of the third version of the President’s Travel Ban on visa holders from several different (mostly Muslim) countries. Courts in Hawaii and Maryland ruled this week that the ban continues to violate the Immigration and Nationality Act. The Hawaii court issued a nationwide injunction and the Department of Homeland Security has indicated it will comply with the court order.
DACA’s deadline for final extension applications passed on October 5th and it is far from clear what will happen when large groups of people begin to lose their work authorization beginning in March. Five bills have been introduced in the House and Senate, but the apparent deal announced by Democratic leaders with the President was essentially repudiated when the White House announced a number of new conditions that are widely seen as being non-starters. That, coupled with a release of White House policy principles this month has led many to conclude that anti-immigration zealots are firmly in control of policymaking in the White House."
Greg is pleased to announce the publication of his new book with co-author Bruce Buchanan. It’s title is "The I-9 and E-Verify Handbook" and it can be found on Amazon in both print and e-book versions.
