New National Interest Waiver (NIW) Standard under Dhanasar

NIW has been one of popular ways to obtain an employment-based green card without a job offer and labor certification process. Until December 27, 2016, NIW petitions have been evaluated by USCIS under the NYSDOT standard decided by the Administrative Appeals Office (AAO) in 1998. AAO'S new decision of Matter of Dhanasar vacated NYSDOT and laid out a new standard for an EB2 NIW petition. 

Strategist: Immigrants are key to finding qualified workers

The president-elect has made no secret of his desire to have businesses across Chicago and the rest of the nation employ American workers before immigrants, but one prominent financial strategist believes the nation is already facing a serious shortage of qualified, native-born workers. Per CNBC, some of the concern centers around a bill that would hinder immigrant access to H-1B visas, which are designed for foreign workers who have specialized knowledge in a given area.
