The Department of Labor (DOL) announced last week that they will begin more aggressively confronting visa program fraud and abuse. This change involves three parts:

  • More aggressive enforcement of the non-immigrant visa program

When your lawful Permanent Residence Card, commonly known as a “green card,” is lost or stolen, it is very inconvenient. You may also feel frightened and frustrated. Follow the steps below to get a green card replacement. These steps will also help prevent another person from illegally using your lost green card or stolen green card. The steps are slightly different depending on where the theft or loss happens: in the United States or in a foreign country.


The best way to start your search for a great immigration attorney to help you with immigration, naturalization, visas, deportation defense, refugee asylum, or temporary protected status is to ask another lawyer. Attorneys know lawyers in other practice areas and can provide you with a quality referral. You can also ask a friend or family member about the immigration attorneys who have helped them in the past. Finally, you can check the American Immigration Lawyers Association website for a list of immigration lawyers in Atlanta and nearby areas.


On January 17, 2017, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) implemented significant changes to the renewal process for employment authorization documents (EAD) through the “Retention of EB-1, EB-2, and EB-3 Immigrant Workers and Program Improvements Affecting High-Skilled Nonimmigrant Workers” final rule. One of the most significant changes is the elimination of the 90-day adjudication requirement for employment authorization applications. Current EAD holders should be mindful of these recent changes to avoid gaps in EAD validity, which would affect employability, and ensure to renew their EADs with sufficient time.
