Young immigrants may see visa troubles after Supreme Court ruling

Young immigrants have been in the news recently for going to extremes to enter and stay in the United States. But acquiring U.S. permanent residency is more challenging than ever. Those who have made it to America and are currently waiting for visas may have to wait a little longer. A recent Supreme Court ruling will require a majority of underage immigrants to start the visa approval process all over again when they turn 21.

Americans favor path to citizenship according to recent poll

There are many illegal immigrants in Louisiana and all over the country. Some of these immigrants would like to become American citizens, but have been unable to navigate the process. According to a recent poll published by the Public Religion Research Institute and the Brookings Institute, 62 percent of Americans are in support of a path to citizenship for the 11 million undocumented immigrants living in the United States.

Companies seek immigration improvements for low-skilled workers

A few weeks ago, technology-based companies were in the news for encouraging lawmakers to make H-1B visas easier to obtain for highly skilled workers. Now, some of the biggest companies in the United States are trying to make it easier for lower-skilled workers to come to Louisiana legally. Chief executives from Coca-Cola, McDonald's, Cargill and multiple other national and regional companies have drafted a letter to lawmakers, pushing for changes in employment immigration.

Unaccompanied and undocumented children crossing borders

Many people from other countries struggle each year to enter the United States legally, and become U.S. citizens. However, some people are so passionate about getting to the states that they will do almost anything to get here. President Obama has recently addressed a crisis involving unaccompanied children taking extreme measures to cross the Southwest border of the country. Officials believe that close to 120 children do this every day, and this number is much higher than in recent past. The Obama administration believes that at this rate, 130,000 unaccompanied children could be making the trek to America by the year 2015.
