As you may be aware, the Trump Administration recently announced a 60-day suspension of immigration to the United States. The freeze is said to prevent green card workers from moving to the U.S. but will allow temporary workers on non-immigrant visas to enter. Today we will discuss the consequences of the ban for U.S. employers.
We are pleased to have with us today employment attorney Jacob M. Monty, managing partner and founder of Monty & Ramirez LLP.
