Trump travel ban upheld by Supreme Court

Florida residents may have heard that the Supreme Court has ruled on President Trump's most recent executive order banning entry to immigrants from seven countries. In a 5-4 decision, the court found that this action was not based on religious hostility despite assertions from critics that it was discriminatory towards Muslims. Justice Roberts wrote that the order was a legitimate attempt to deny entry to those who could not be properly vetted.

Views on H-1B immigrant workers are mixed

Immigrant workers in Florida holding H-1B visas receive permission to enter the country because their employers need their skills, which are usually unavailable or in short supply among American citizens. Nationwide, many people believe these immigrant workers take jobs that could have gone to Americans. A survey conducted by a newspaper and the Silicon Valley Leadership Group found that 45 percent of respondents held this view.

Exploring the naturalization test

As part of the process of becoming a United States citizen, a Florida resident may need to take a naturalization test. This test generally requires a person to show that he or she can read, write and speak in English. The speaking part of the test occurs during an interview with an immigration officer while the writing component includes writing a sample sentence or two. Form N-400 is used to determine how well a person can read.

Investor and entrepreneur immigration program to end

Some people in Florida may be concerned about the proposed end of the International Entrepreneur Rule program. This program enabled some immigrants to bypass procedures in order to come to the U.S. to create or invest in businesses, especially startups. The rule allows the Department of Homeland Security secretary to grant foreign nationals entry and work authorization in the country if their presence will provide "significant public benefits." While the program was initiated under the Obama administration, the Trump administration has opposed it.
