FOMAA L.i.F.e on Wednesday, June 24th organized this conversation that was well attended by the afflicted from across the globe.
The initiative was so helpful to the skilled immigrants who are in the peril of being separated from their own families in the USA, imperiled otherwise due to the COVID-19 caused travel uncertainties. Esq. Scarborough enabled the attendees to obtain insights to mitigate their circumstances with the recent Executive Order (EO) on immigration. This suspension of documented immigration primarily people who have traveled outside the USA for family emergencies or business reasons. They will not be able to reunite with families back in the USA until December 2020 is a takeaway of this Executive Order.
Esq. Scarborough interpreted the EO in plain layman’s language as “issuance nonimmigrant visas – H1B, J, L, H2B categories to be suspended till Dec. 31, 2020. If you are not in the U.S.A right now and do not have a valid stamped visa or are a fresh applicant; this EO prevents getting the visa stamped and coming to the USA, unless you can convince the Government that your return is in the national interest of the USA.” Although the EO memo is not defining the specs of the “national interest” perspective.
Esq. Scarborough, candidly observed that she is a veteran professional, in legit immigration serving the US communities and businesses, realistically and personally believe in America legit immigrants don’t take away jobs of Americans but affirmatively contributes to protecting and increasing American job opportunities. As well asserted the H1Bs are vetted twice by USCIS and DOL that they contribute to America by all means socio-economically. However, being portrayed and abused as Job stealers is a sad reality!
Appreciably Esq. Scarborough elaborated on the IT Service Memo as well. The complete discourse is accessible at https://www.facebook.com/groups/FOMAA.LIFE/
In conclusion Attorney Stephanie Scarborough, was gracious enough in sharing her insights on the need of the hour for the EBGC backlog community to come forward and educate fellow Americans as much as the DACA community is successfully able to convince and communicate their real-life apathy and circumstance.
