The third UK election in just over four years is set for 12 December 2019. Immigration continues to be a key topic for political parties. In this article, we compare the manifestos of the three main political parties, on immigration.
Law360 (September 30, 2019, 3:21 PM EDT) -- U.S. companies seeking to hire foreign nationals are facing a tougher road to securing visas for their foreign workers due to ever-increasing processing delays caused by requests for evidence, or RFEs, issued by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services and an increased rate of immigration petition denials.
U.S. companies hire foreign nationals for a number of reasons, including: Not enough U.S. workers are available; able and willing to do the job; the foreign national has specialized knowledge not available in the U.S.; the foreign national has extraordinary ability in a certain field; just to name a few.
Shareholder Irina Plumlee was quoted in a recent Quartz Magazine artice, which discusses the UK returning to its pre-2012 rule of letting foreign students get work visas for up to two years after graduating.
Close on the heels of prime minister Theresa May’s exit, the UK is bidding farewell to her post-study work rule for international students.
As home secretary, in 2012, May had slashed the time foreign students got to find a job, from two years after graduating, to just four months. This week, her successor Boris Johnson said he plans to reverse the restrictive immigration policy, which had hit Britain’s popularity as a global education destination.
