Immigration bottleneck could impact America's AI advantage

The California-based companies Google, Nvidia and Tesla are leading innovators in the field of artificial intelligence, and they were all founded by immigrants. Two out of three graduate students in fields related to AI are foreign-born, but many industry experts worry that America's increasingly restrictive immigration system could change this situation and erode the country's dominance in the area. These experts point out that the number of employment-based green cards available each year has not increased since 1990 even though the U.S. economy has doubled in size.

Are you ready for your immigration interview?

You may be well aware that the immigration process in the United States is strict and complex.

U.S. government extends TPS protections for certain immigrants

On Nov. 1, the Department of Homeland Security announced that temporary protections for immigrants from several countries will be extended until January 2021.

House bill introduced to offer visas to Syrian Kurds

California residents may be interested to learn that a bipartisan bill has been introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives that would provide visas to Syrian Kurds who have worked as interpreters and in other capacities fighting against the Islamic State.

Issues of concern for California immigrants seeking naturalization

It can be frustrating to set a particular goal in life and then realize, after the fact, that you don't have the resources or ability to accomplish it. For instance, if you want to join the military but you have a past injury or current health condition that makes you ineligible to do so, you might feel disappointed or upset that your ultimate plan does not seem doable at this time.
