The new Congress in January will usher in a power shift and leadership changes that will shape immigration policy in the coming year. How will this new power structure impact legislative developments on immigration reform measures? Which immigration items will Congress take up? Which priorities top the Biden administration’s agenda on high-skilled immigration and what changes should employers anticipate at the executive and regulatory levels? Every immigration professional should be aware of the potential impact of the new congressional dynamics on upcoming legislative and regulatory outcomes, and on their immigration programs.

Join this timely webinar and hear from BAL’s Government Strategies Team on what to expect in legislative and regulatory actions in the coming year:

  • Overview of the new power dynamics on the Hill and the immigration debate
  • Updates on regulatory priorities: USCIS fees, H-1B modernization, wage thresholds, per-country caps, green card process, Form I-9 modernization
  • Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA): current developments, solutions and interim strategies
