Lori Chesser Quoted in Bloomberg BNA Article - July 12, 2013

Davis Brown Immigration Attorney Lori T. Chesser was quoted in a recent Bloomberg BNA article. The article discusses the comprehensive immigration overhaul bill (S. 744) passed June 27 by the Senate that includes significant policy shifts toward preferring immigrants with substantial employment backgrounds and employers that help foreign workers become permanent U.S. residents using a points system.

 

Some are saying that the new legislation and points system might shut out certain groups of potential visa applicants who could contribute to the U.S. economy but who lack the high-skilled employment experience and advanced degrees that would earn large numbers of points.

 

In regards to the new system, Chesser said the legislation is geared toward eliminating the “addiction” of some employers to the use of temporary nonimmigrant visas to meet their labor needs.
