While the extraordinary events in Louisiana and across the world may have delayed the hopes of many hoping to immigrate to the U.S., there is good reason to be optimistic about the future.

Unfortunately, bringing in coaches and players from other countries can be difficult sometimes. Louisiana hockey fans might even know that one team recently filed suit against the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, claiming that it wrongfully denied a coach's EB-1 visa. In employment immigration, EB-1 visas are used for those with extraordinary abilities.
