The mainstream media has viewers focusing on the form, but not the substance and solutions on the immigration issue. Listen to Immigration lawyer, Michael Wildes from Wildes Weinberg, discuss with co-hosts Lew Weiss and Tim Grady the immigration problem that the 115th Congress – this Congress – needs to solve. Whether the immigration issue is foreign students in this country without a pathway to employment, immigrants at our borders without a pathway to living and working in the U.S., or individuals already in this country without a pathway to citizenship. It’s often very difficult for immigrants to enter the U.S. and achieve the correct visa to allow them to work and live. With this being said, the assistance of a professional immigration lawyer company like Quijano Law could help people in this situation, or similar, look into various options to hopefully reach the best results for the family or as an individual.

H1B stamping was introduced to help those skilled foreign nationals to enter the country and begin their working career legally. However, it appears that some immigration problems remain.
