It has been a busy day for immigration attorneys and Washington, DC. As President Obama is getting ready to announce his executive action proposal, called Immigration Accountability Executive Action (IAEA), there are some reliable preliminary updates we can share with our readers.
There are a few people who are interested in immigration who are not aware of the upcoming announcement by President Obama on his plan for executive action on immigration. At this time, we have been receiving rumors, bits and pieces, provided off the record, by various sources in the government here in Washington, DC and we will not be analyzing the proposals until the official announcement is made: President Obama is expected to make his announcement this evening, November 20, 2014, at 8 pm eastern time and we will be staging a number of events immediately after to analyze the proposal.

Employers who hire H-1B employees and fail to pay the wages indicated in the Labor Condition Application during a work stoppage may be violating the terms set forth in the Department of Labor regulations. The practice of “benching” H-1B employees during a work stoppage is disallowed in the immigration regulations on wage obligations for H-1B employees.
In an important (and surely welcome by many) announcement, the National Visa Center (NVC) has announced that as of November 12, 2014, they would no longer start requiring and collecting original civil documents in support of immigrant visa (green card) cases.
