Immigration Minute 2-12-21

In our new weekly series Immigration Minute, immigration attorney Mario Godoy gives you the week’s immigration news and updates in 1 minute. Mario shares this week’s immigration minute on February 12, 2021.


Welcome to the Immigration Minute with Godoy Law Office, where we give you the recent immigration updates in one minute.
This week we cover the H-1B registration period, an injunction pausing Biden’s 100-day removal freeze and the Secure Act.
On February 5th, USCIS announced that the initial registration period for the 2022 H-1B competitions opens on March 9th and closes on March 25th. The H-1B is a popular visa used by many U.S. employers, and there’s a cap of 65 000 regular H-1B  visas. So get your initial registrations in so your application can be considered.
On February 8, a Texas federal court judge extended a temporary restraining order halting Biden’s 100-day removal
freeze. The lawsuit filed by Texas asserts that DHS overstepped its authority by ordering a freeze to deportations.
Also on February 8, a group of senators reintroduced the Secure Act. The proposed law provides a process for granting Green Cards to immigrants that have temporary protected status.
Please feel free to call us with your immigration questions. Our office is committed to protecting your American dreams.
