The U.S. immigration system is at a critical crossroads, and the upcoming election will decide which path it takes into the foreseeable future.
In the last four years, the Trump administration has dramatically reshaped business immigration by introducing executive actions and changes at the administrative level that have curtailed virtually every route for high-skilled foreign workers.

How do the candidates differ on the issues of high-skilled immigration, work visas and green cards, and how can companies plan for these changes? How will the ongoing COVID-19 emergency disrupt or inform the next president’s immigration agenda?
