John Lennon's deportation case uncovered secret policy

Some Maryland residents may recall that John Lennon had immigration problems in the United States. In 1972, Lennon hired an immigration attorney because he was being targeted for deportation after an alleged overstay. Work that Lennon's attorney did during that time led to the discovery of prosecutorial discretion, an immigration policy that was once kept secret.

Undocumented residents in custody over gang allegations

Undocumented Maryland residents may be interested to learn that some immigrants are being taken into custody on unsubstantiated allegations of being involved in gang activity. This is despite President Obama's stated focus on those who were entering the country illegally in order to commit crimes over those who have lived in the country long-term while still abiding by the laws.

B-1 visas and visiting for business

Foreign nationals who plan to visit Maryland on business may wonder whether or not a B-1 visa is the appropriate choice for them. A B-1 visa is a nonimmigrant visa that allows foreign nationals to enter the U.S. in order to conduct business. It is important for people who are thinking about getting this type of visa to understand what is considered to be business activities as opposed to employment.

Government asks for rehearing on DAPA

Maryland residents might be interested in learning about the latest event in the ongoing saga involving President Obama's executive order regarding the Deferred Action for Parents of Americans, or DAPA. On June 23, the Supreme Court of the United States was deadlocked in the case filed against the federal government on behalf of 26 Republican-led states. The split ruling left in effect a lower court ruling that had enjoined the federal government from proceeding with the implementation of DAPA.

E-2 visas and Maryland businesses

The E-2 Treaty Investor visa allows individuals to enter the United States because they have made a large investment in an American business that they own 50 percent or more of. Those who work for such a company may also be allowed to obtain the same visa assuming that they are the same nationality as the owner. British business owners have flocked to places such as Orlando in recent years on such visas.
