    The USCIS has recently released a redesigned E-Verify participation poster. The new poster informs current and prospective employees of their legal rights, responsibilities, and protections in the employment eligibility verification process.

    The poster is now available in English and Spanish as one poster. Employers must replace their participation posters when updates are provided by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. Thus, employers should check to see if the most current poster is available. The new posters can be downloaded when participants log into E-Verify. Employers may also display any of 16 foreign language versions of the poster.

    E-Verify employers continue to be required to display the Immigrant and Employee Rights (IER) Right to Work posters in English and Spanish.

    For the answers to many other questions related to employer immigration compliance, I invite you to read my new book, The I-9 and E-Verify Handbook, available at

    Via Immigration and Customs Enforcement:

    WASHINGTON – U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) Fugitive Operations teams arrested 498 individuals from 42 countries for federal immigration violations in multiple cities across the U.S. during a four-day operation that ended Wednesday. Operation ‘Safe City’ focused on cities and regions where ICE deportation officers are denied access to jails and prisons to interview suspected immigration violators or jurisdictions where ICE detainers are not honored.

    The operation targeted individuals who have violated U.S. immigration laws, prioritizing aliens with criminal convictions, pending criminal charges, known gang members and affiliates, immigration fugitives and those who re-entered the U.S. after deportation. Individuals with active DACA were not targeted for arrest.

    AILA is reporting that USCIS will resume Premium Processing Service (PPS) for H-1B petitions, effective October 3. Accordingly, PPS will again be allowed for H-1B transfers, amendments, and extensions.

    USCIS previously restarted PPS for H-1B cap-subject petitions on September 18. Earlier this summer, USCIS resumed PPS for H-1Bs for cap-exempt employers (e.g. research entities and universities), and H-1Bs for doctors.

    USCIS allows an upgrade for previously filed a petition. If you have filed an H-1B petition and would like your petitioned upgraded to PPS, please contact your MU attorney or staff member.

  4. Visas for Muslim Ban Countries Down 44%, While Puerto Rican Americans Are Still Without Power or Water. Roger Algase

    POLITICO reports that, according to its own study, visa issuance from the six Muslim countries that have been on Trump's entry ban list for most of this year (still, euphemistically and misleadingly called a "travel ban" by most of the media) is down 44 per cent despite the fact that, at least from January to June, 2017 most of the ban provisions had been struck down by various federal courts.

    The POLITICO study gives many concrete examples of specific visa refusals or long delays whose only purpose seems to be discouraging citizens of the countries concerned, even those who have visited the US before without incident, from even applying for visas. See:

    Meanwhile, according to The Hill, 146 Democratic leaders have called on Trump to use more military and other assets to help the non-white, non-European American citizens of Puerto Rico recover from the worst natural disaster in their history.

    It appears that Trump has been more vigilant and successful at keeping non-white immigrants who belong to a disfavored religion out of the United States than he has been in helping millions of American citizens of color in Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands overcome the severe hardships that they are now undergoing from Hurricane Irma.
