Undocumented immigrants are mainly long-term residents

Many of the undocumented immigrants living in Maryland entered the United States more than 10 years ago. After the Great Recession began in 2008, fewer people entered the United States illegally or overstayed their visas. As a result, the population of undocumented immigrants in the U.S. is now made up of mostly long-term residents.

Addressing immigration issues in mergers and acquisitions

When a Maryland company is in the process of acquiring or merging with another firm, it is important for the owner to do his or her due diligence before closing the deal regarding any potential immigration issues. Failing to do so may leave the company facing substantial financial penalties or losing key employees following the transaction.

Immigration-related employment discrimination rule changes

Immigrants in Maryland are often exposed to workplace discrimination in the form of unfair requests for documentation when they seek employment. In August 2016, the U.S. Department of Justice proposed some new rules concerning unfair documentary practices that could make it more difficult for employers to discriminate against immigrants. The DOJ wants part of Section 274(a)(6) of the Immigration and Nationality Act to be incorporated into the Code of Federal Regulations.
