Government shutdown impacts immigration hearings

Last year's government shutdown has affected many different areas, including the field of immigration. Over 37,000 immigration hearings have been delayed by months or even years leaving many immigrants feeling anxious. About 70% of immigration hearings were put on hold. Unfortunately, many of these hearings have been delayed to later this year and some will be pushed well in to 2015.

How to work in the United States legally

Many people who are not citizens of the United States seek to obtain Work Visas or a Green Card to be able to work and live in the United States legally.

Those who plan to come to Louisiana or any other U.S. state should be aware of the steps they will have to take in order to do so.

Speaker of the House, Jim Boehner, will issue a list of immigration principles to follow, including a narrow path to citizenship, new visas for foreign workers and tighter security at the border.
