Beware of Fraudulent Phone Calls

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Dear Clients,

I just received a call from some fraudsters that my nomorobo app did not catch. It left a voice message which said, “There is a Legal Enforcement Action filed by our department (Social Security) on your social security for fraudulent activity. So before this matter goes to the State Court or you are arrested, please call us.” The message came on my phone from 347-651-0991, but this call could come from any number.

Please do not fall for these fraudsters. And whatever you do, Please do NOT give them your social security

1. No Government agency calls you—they snail mail you
2. There is no such thing as a Legal Enforcement Action
3. Social Security is a Federal Agency and State Court has no jurisdiction——I was almost tempted to call them back and tell them that they should do some research before making robocalls

Fairness for High Skilled Immigration Act-HR-1044

By | H1-B, Immigration, Immigration Policy, Uncategorized | No Comments

Many of you who are in some way connected to Employment Based Immigration know that Visa Numbers are set per country, and all countries get the same amount of quota. Since China and India are large countries with inordinate amounts of highly qualified individuals, the quotas for folks born in these countries fill up. As a result these Highly Skilled Legal Immigrants have to wait an inordinate amount of time to get their Permanent Residency. At present a Master’s Degree Holder who just happened to be born in India has to wait for 10 years before they can file for their Green Card. All the time, they pay taxes and maintain legal status.
This is simply unfair. A BIPARTISAN Bill was reintroduced in the House by Zoe Lofgren (D-CA) and Ken Buck (R-Co). The same bill was introduced in 2017 by Rep Kevin Yoder (R-Kan).
At the heart of this bill is FAIRNESS. Is it fair for folks to wait undue amount of time to get their Permanent Residency? People don’t CHOOSE the country they were born in.
Also, would it not be great to pass a bipartisan Immigration Bill in this divided country of ours?
