TBA Law Blog

Posted by: Christy Gibson on Sep 26, 2013

Hello.  I am Terry Olsen, Chair of the Immigration Section of the TBA.  This issue focuses on current immigration trends, and policies being faced by immigration lawyers in their daily practice.  In this issue, we provide you with relevant and practical articles that describe current immigration law developments.  

With that said, I would like to address immigration reform.  Immigration reform is a very pressing issue that has the potential to be revolutionary for immigration lawyers and those whom they serve.  Immigration reform is an evolving concept that has been a central legislative goal of the current administration.  With the ongoing international conflicts, changing international policy, and domestic budgetary and fiscal issues before Congress, it is unclear what will become of immigration reform.  If immigration reform legislation is enacted, possibly in October, we will issue a special issue covering the new laws and policies.

If you have any comments, suggestions, or would like to contribute in the future, please contact Bruce Buchannan our newsletter editor at BBuchanan@visalaw.com.
