“Immigrants signed their names to our Declaration and helped win our independence. Immigrants helped lay the railroads and build our cities, calloused hand by calloused hand. Immigrants took up arms to preserve our union, to defeat fascism, and to win a Cold War. Immigrants and their descendants helped pioneer new industries and fuel our Information Age, from Google to the iPhone. So the story of immigrants in America isn’t a story of “them,” it’s a story of “us.” It’s who we are. And now, all of you get to write the next chapter.” – President Barack Obama

The Board of Alien Labor Certification Appeals (BALCA) recently affirmed the decision of a Certifying Officer (CO) to deny labor certification for the position of “Accountant. Level I.”

After receiving & reviewing an Employer’s Application for Permanent Labor Certification, the CO issued an Audit notification. The Employer responded by sending certain information that the CO requested. In response, the CO informed the Employer that they would need to conduct supervised recruitment. As part of the process, the Employer had to submit a copy of the proposed job advertisement. A week later, the CO approved the advertisement and mailed further recruitment instructions. Over a month later, the Employer sent copies of the Georgia State Workforce Agency’s job order and an in-house job posting, along with copies of its advertisements.

A few months later, the CO told the Employer the recruitment time had concluded. In 30 days, the Employer needed to submit a comprehensive written report about the recruitment process and the results. In a timely manner, the Employer compiled with the request. In the report, the Employer noted it had rejected all US applicants, a few of which because the Employer was unable to communicate with them concerning the advertised position.

On Monday, June 26, 2017, the Supreme Court announced that they would hear the full case against President Trump’s Travel Ban 2.0 in October, the beginning of the their next  judicial session. In the meantime the Supreme Court ruled that some foreign nationals from the six states included in the second executive order (EO-2) could be kept from entering the Untied States.

Trump’s Travel Ban may not be enforced against foreign nationals who have a credible claim of a bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the United States. All other foreign nationals from his six country list (Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen) are subject to the provisions of EO-2.

The Immigration Policy Center (IPC) has released all fifty states, the District of Columbia and the United States (Overall), for a total of fifty-two updated fact sheets with accompanying info graphics and other details. These fact sheets highlight the demographic and economic impact of Immigrants, Asians and Latinos in each state. The Immigration Policy Center (IPC) is the research and policy division of the American Immigration Council (AIC).

With national immigration policy being discussed as part of Presidential Elections, we thought that it would be a good time to provide some statistics on the Immigrant population in the United States as provided by this IPC research. Once a week we will be posting a blog with information on three states at a time. This week we will highlight; Maine, Maryland & Massachusetts.

The IPC has compiled research which shows that Immigrants, Latinos and Asians are an essential part of each of these states’ economy, labor force and tax base. Immigrants and their children are a growing economic and political force as consumers, taxpayers and entrepreneurs. With the nation working towards economic recovery, immigrants and their children will continue to play a key role in shaping the economic and political future of each of these states.
