Immigration Law Q & A: DACA Update and more & what you need to know


JACOB: Okay alright, so we are live again
at our law offices talking about immigration changes and updates and we’ll wait a few seconds
for everybody to come on and let’s see here. just like that, but the premise of the show
today is going to be updates of the week, what happened in immigration, some key points
that we haven’t covered to last time. And it’s always exciting on immigration law, right? MARIE: Yes. JACOB: We’re here. I’m Jacob, Jacob Sapochnick
and this is Marie Hortalano who is our managing attorney and every week we gather the most
exciting information to share with you/ You can…what are we going to do is …hi Mila.
Hi Upee, We will…you can as you join us live, you can post your questions in the comments
and we’ll answer them throughout the show but we’re going to start off with some of
the topics because I know you all want to know the most pressing and most important
things that are happening in immigration. So I just read that President Trump met with
top CEO’s of Fortune 500 companies yesterday and they were just had a dinner talking about
different things and they basically were pressing him on immigration and they were asking him
most of the, at the dinner about immigration and they actually wanted him to create a program
that will allow skilled workers to be able to come here in a much better way and Trump
promised he’s going to do an executive order from the dinner, but we don’t know if that’s
going to happen. We’ll see. Another important thing that happened that was DACA announcement
by a judge beginning of the week that the DACA program will continue. But of course
there’s something’s going to happen today in Texas that may change that. Why don’t you
tell us a little bit about what’s happening with.DACA, Marie? MARIE: You remember last year Trump…the
administration canceled that DACA completely around January. They canceled only…while
they kept the…they said you cannot find or renew that cap or you can’t file extensions.
We are all very happy about that. We’ve been waiting for Congress to get together and pass
a law about DACA which has not happened yet. We have to rely on the court right now to
get the law. Last week, a judge gave 20 days to the administration to reinstate that DACA
for extension and for new application. However, I think right now, today, this afternoon in
Texas, they are hearing arguments for a case that’s probably going to destroy DACA. Its Judge Hannon and I don’t expect him to
not go against DACA. He’s going to be a very new, also a constitutional challenge because
one judge is saying I give you 20 days to bring back that DACA and another judge probably
said today or this week destroyed DACA so it’s going to be a very…it’s going to be
the first time it’s complete opposites. Maybe it’s going to go to the Supreme Court. But
let’s first wait that…to hear what the Texas judge is going to say. JACOB: So as of now, DACA applicants for…that
hold DACA, they can continue to renew it until further notice, but any new DACA applicants,
if you’re, you know, somebody who would qualify for DACA today, you can do it until there’s
going to be some other decisions. So, obviously a lot of our…our DACA clients are worried
because many of them are working, many of them are contributing to society and they
really can’t blame that. So what will be some advice that you can tell somebody who is in
DACA who is uncertain about their future with this program? MARIE: What I would find my extension, if
you’ll read in your timeline of five to six months before expiration, you should start
getting new paperwork and file as you can because who knows if we can’t even file extension
tomorrow or next week. For the race, while I still hold the congress is going to come
up with a law for Dreamers Kids that still might work. I don’t know if it’s feasible,
but they’ve been promising that for at least what? Six months, since January they promise,
they promise the law and we are the weak revenue proposition project. JACOB: Right. So, we’re now just remains with
the seen and of course those are the DACAs that are going to marry U.S. citizens. And
of course there may be other options for them. But right now, it remains to be scene and
will continue to update you. So one of the things that I wanted to talk about today are
some green card interview tips and as you know, no matter what you do, you are, whether
it’s an employment based case or a or a family base case all green card petitions are subject
for interview. So back in the day, which is less than a year ago, only family petitions,
that marriage cases and also family petitions were actually getting interviews. But now,
every green card application is subject to an interview, which makes it, first of all,
much more complicated. Makes the process much more confusing because even officers are not
always aware of what they should be asking, what are the, some of the standards. We wanted
to touch base some of the points that we’ve seen recently clients are getting into trouble
and give you tips how they can overcome those issues if you follow those tips. Let’s start
with a marriage petitions and I-864 for joined sponsors. What are what are some of the issues
that we see there Marie? MARIE: So, in late term, when you get married
and each to your husband and your wife was U.S. citizen doesn’t make enough money, you
need to, for example, for a couple, you make less than $20,000 a year on tax, you have
to find a joint sponsor. Someone whose going to sponsor you and promise to the government
that if she become a public charge so when she receive food stamps or anything else,
they will…they will go up to the joint sponsor and get back the money that the government
spent on you. So very recently, and it’s been very, at least in San Diego, I cannot talk
about other jurisdiction, but they’ve been specifically asking client how do you know
the joint sponsor? Is it your family or friend? How long have you known him if he’s a friend?
Is it, you know him for two months, six months, 10 years. They are looking for…I think and
I’m not sure but I think they’re saying that people are paying their joint sponsor and
it’s not a kind of architect, is that you’re paying him, so they are trying to… JACOB: To stop that. MARIE: To stop that which I don’t know how,
I don’t understand why he’s a deep reason to that, but we’ve been observing that in
the interviews, the specific question of who your joint sponsor and how do you him? JACOB: Right? So some of these marriage cases
they’re trying to detect fraud and so they determine that if somebody is willing to sign
paperwork and they’re not really connected to the couple, maybe there’s some sort of
a, you know, something shady going on. So it’s just kind of like a red light. So we
always tell people, try to find co-sponsor that you know, or at least somebody that you
can explain in a logical way why they’re a co-sponsor. Maybe it’s a friend or a family,
a coworker or somebody, but not just somebody that you paid because that’s going to create
a problem down the process whether it’s your first interview or second interview. Another
question that we see that they ask, and it’s a question that is on the form I-45, whether
it’s for an employment base or family case is whether you’re violated your terms of your
visa. And for example if you say yes, if you overstate and so those are…a little bit
of complicated issues there as to how you answer. Maybe Marie can tell us a little bit
more about that point. MARIE: So question 17 on the I-45, which is
a form for the green card asks if you ever violated the term of your visa. We…you have
to be upfront if you…if you overstay, you have to be and say yes. However, we’ve sent…because
we get a lot of phone calls on a daily basis. A lot of people call us and ask us, should
I say that I got married within 90 days of entering. This is a very tricky question that
you should talk about with a lawyer because it’s not about getting married within 90 days
or 60 days. It’s about what was your intent when you cross the border. Immigration is
going to look…mind it very carefully when you enter and you arrived with your tourist
visa for example. Did you have that intent to get married with a U.S. citizen which should
have been against your visa. Now, if you arrive in the U.S. and…well, things goes smoothly
and you decide to get married pretty fast well that’s another story. So just be very
careful how you fill out the question 17. Because back in two upfront, you might just
bring red flag that usually exists. So be careful to talk with the qualified lawyer. JACOB: Right? Because in a sum the way you
answered those questions can trigger more investigation for no reason specifically with
the question of overstay and that some instances were overstay is not an issue, but you need
to know which ones are those instances. Another thing that we’ve seen is questions about arrest.
So as you know certain arrests and the criminal offenses can be a problem for your green card.
And so therefore we…we highly recommend anybody who’s going through the green card
process, whether it’s employment or family to do a full criminal background at DOJ and
FBI and it’s not a complicated process. You can do it before the interview and this one,
when we work with our clients, we can look at that report. But I would say almost every
interview, make sure you have that full DOJ-FBI report because if you don’t, sometimes there
can be things that can be discovered at the interview and if you don’t see it in advance,
it’s very difficult to deal with it and maybe already too late at the interview and sometimes
can result in denial or even arrest at the interview. So make sure you have full DOJ-FBI
criminal reports. Then before you actually attended interview and any attorney can help
you with that. And again, at the end of this, or throughout the stream, we will answer some
questions. And you can always make an appointment to consult with us, whether it’s the first
time you see us or a second opinion, we always do that. Please Marie? Also a new term, what
we observe is a…in case you get to a report from the Department of Justice which is not
available in other states, but given that we can get it from the Department of Justice
. And many… now the immigration here in San Diego has decided that provided your…the
criminal record from the Department of Justice is not enough because they are sometimes and
observe that more and more the Department of Justice doesn’t keep a record of dated,
so you might show that you are arrested and charged and then there is no disposition.
So it brings a lot of problem. That’s also why you have to your record before you’re
interview because it brings a lot of problem because they know if you’re off charge. You
have to go to the DA, to the judge and usually have 30 days only if you could get the request
forward to them. So it’s gets really complicated. We used to be lenient that told the client,
well if you feel like fighting your case without DOJ, just do it. At this point, I don’t think
we ever recommend that even a law because it’s extremely dangerous for the green card
… JACOB: It’s always better to be informed as
to what you have in your criminal records file before you interview. And instead of
being surprised there and again, I see a lot of questions that are coming up. We’ll answer
them in a second. Another interesting thing is about public assistance, public charge.
You know, as you apply for a green card, if you take any benefits from the government,
food stamps, child insurance, things like that. There could be a bar for your green
card. Well now there’s some additional changes that could make it even more complicated if
you’ve done it. And Marie, what are some of the new things we’ve seen that they’re mentioning?
So a chunk is right now reconsidering one is a public charge is going to change the
definition of what is public charge? From what do we have is going to…so, as JACOB
said, for big shot right now is food stamps, Social Security income or stuff like that,
like people will get…well, being helped by the government. You are not allowed to
receive food stamps if you have a visa or a green guard. This is forbidden. Only U.S.
citizen are allowed to get food stamps. Only U.S. citizen are allowed to get service security
income. If you get it while on green card, you’re going to have a lot of problems when
you get naturalized or… so Trump want to extend what is public charge and he wants
to include for example, Obamacare. Why? I mean a Obamacre is a system. It goes through
[inaudible]. It gives you what insurance you qualified for. They want to include that as
a public charge against the system. Well we’re going to say, children health insurance. Why?
I mean, Obamacare you have to have health insurance which is a cycle. We’re looking
on how they’re going to redefine a public charge. What is a public charge? And believe
me, there are going to be very bad consequences if you ever received public charge. JACOB: Right. And again, things that could
result in denial. Another thing we’ve seen that they concerned is have you lied, concealed
on misrepresented any information, and again it goes back to people that when you come
to enter the border as a visitor, you state something at a port of entry. Yeah. I’m coming
just to visit. I’m just coming to my see my sister, my brother or whatever, and then they
don’t really come as a tourist, you change your status and you become a student or you
married somebody. Well those things now could be used against you at the interview because
they’re going to say, wait a minute. We have records that a year ago, two years ago, you
told us that you’re going to be a visitor. You’re going to go to Disneyland or to Vegas
to gamble and now you’re married or now you’re doing something else. So, those things could
be an issue and people can start being charged with misrepresentation. We’ve seen things
that are happening right now. So be aware as to what you tell them at the border and,
and keep things short. Don’t reveal too much information because the more you say, the
more they take from you at a port of entry or any other place that documents that kind
of Info can be used against you afterwards in immigration proceedings and immigration
interviews, Do you want to add anything to this one? MARIE: Well be careful when you see, it’s
called a DS-160 when you’re…for visa at the U.S. consulate. You have to file a form,
the DS-160. They ask for all your employment, everywhere you lived. They’ve been actually
going back to the DS-160 you submitted, 5, 10, 20 years ago and we’re going to look what
did you say? Where did you leave? What did you say you work and then they got to match
their record. Did you come as a B2 and you’re say you live in America. You’re getting a
fraud inadmissibility right off and you’re going to have 45 days to do whatever… JACOB: Which is hard to fight. MARIE: Which is very hard to fight in 45 days
or yeah. So, being…be sure, you careful what you write on your DS-160 when you applied
for a visa at the consulate. JACOB: Right, so, you know, as a whole, we
see a lot of changes in those, green card interviews. They become much more…more tough.
They got into more detail. They can look at people appearance. They can make assumptions,
because remember, before especially those employment interviewers, there are no interview.
They will work at the paper work that would save somebody has a degree. If they worked
somewhere they just approve it automatically. Now, you know, you can say something in the
interview that would…is not going to look good and may…it would open the assumption
of fraud. They’re going to investigate. We’ve seen it at a very, very complicated turn of
events, and we are really comparing the clients on interviews as if we’re going to court.
Marie, what are some of the things we’ve seen that are happen. Then we’re go to questions. MARIE: Well for employments, it’s a very
complex subject. An officer, they are trained very hard and they are trying but they don’t
understand most of the visa, H1B, TA, E-2, they don’t understand much. So, it’s very
difficult to deal with them between officer who is over zealous and who wants to find
every little detail of the…all you’ve said as if you ever over stayed one minute in the
past 20 years, to the person who almost nothing and and just look at your last I-94 and almost
done anything. So it’s been, sometimes very challenging and
you have to what a good lawyer because I’ve had a client come from other lawyer. Well,
for example, it was the E-B1A so he had extraordinary abilities and the officer started to ask what
is your academic support. We took them but that’s I-864. However, you don’t need the
I-864 when you have it…if you want it, it’s a…it was self-petition and E-B1A doesn’t
require affidavit of support. They didn’t even stop and you got problems. Problems and we got RFT, you have to RFT,
for nothing like you should have just stopped because you don’t need an affidavit of support. JACOB: Right. MARIE: Just because they don’t know, but
they need to be educated. They are still very…I’m trade and hopefully this time its going to
get better, but for now, make sure you go with the… you know, skilled lawyer.. JACOB: So again and just to show that things
that are happening at the actual interview case the course of the case. So if an officer
determines that they pick on something that you said or they look at the paperwork and
we decide that something is not right that can change the course of the case right there
at the interview which wasn’t the case before especially for employment base cases that
typically we’re almost approved automatically once they got the paperwork. So preparation
for those new kinds of interview is really essential right now and we are obviously studying
and improving our process and how we are educating our clients and how we are working with our
clients and how we conduct ourselves at those interviews is going to be really important.
So let’s take a look at some of the questions because I know you want her to ask some of
those. Let me see here. Okay. Alright, so let me pull some good questions. We have…Let
say hi to UP, to Mila, to Edmundo, to Monica Rodriguez. Ryan is in the house. Monica is
asking how long it’s taken at this time to get approval on I6O1’s MARIE: One year. JACOB: About a year, right? So we’ve seen
about a year plus on 6O1 – 61A’s. Yeah, it’s about a year. We don’t think it’s going
to be anything to make it faster. Again now is the time to ask the questions and even
at the end of the stream what we’re done, we’ll continue to answer those questions post. MARIE, Joe is asking or she just says hi.
Hey, hi. Mitch is saying hi. Yeti Tamau is saying hey can you help with me with my husband
immigration case? Absolutely Yeti. If you need help, just send us a message and I’m
also going to put my, email address here and you can actually send us an email if you need
assistance. Again, were open for consultations and we will. We could definitely can help
with your husband. Maha, Jenny is asking what is the average amount of investment needed
for an E-2? I mean, again, there’s no set amount for an E-2 investment but we always
recommend at least 100,000. And again, it depends on where you are, what states, things
like that. Maha, Johnny is asking my husband is looking to create our business within San
Diego within a health and fitness. Can I qualify under the same visa and still work in educating
myself? JACOB: For sure. Your husband can get an E-2
as a principal and you can get a E-2 as a wife and he can get a work permit. You can
go to school and do whatever you want. If you’re watching this now, send us a direct
message or email me and you get a special price on your E-2 visit just because you’re
watching us live. Joel is saying hi. Hi, Joel Blush. Please tell me how much time to approve
F2B category visa while petitioner is a green card holder. I think it’s two years plus,
right for F2B for a green card holder for a spouse? At least two years. Yeah, at least
two years. Hello. Ahmed Eunice. I have been waiting for administrative processing over
eight and a half years. Any advice? Well, unfortunately some of these cases take forever,
especially from certain countries because this is very case specific. I encourage you
to send us a private message Ahmed and we can definitely take a look at it. We’ve done
quite a few work with embassies all over the world to push those admin reviews and with
Washington. Again, every case is different, but again send me a private message and it’s
very important for you to understand that we’re doing this as a public service to you
guys because you follow us on Facebook and and some of you are our clients. We are not
your attorneys and please understand that we are not providing legal counsel. This is
just general information. But Ahmed at least send us a message and we’ll be definitely
happy to help you. Blush is saying the priority date is September 2013. Again, it’s case specific
requests. We will be more than happy to look at it if you send us a private message so
we can take a look at it. Again there’s a visa bulletin and in the visa bulletin they
have different dates and based on that date it, it depends how long you have to wait.
Thanks Maja. I’m more than happy to help and I remember you’re just putting the title,
Facebook Live Consultation and you get a special price, Monica. Wow. What happens after you
passed the one year mark when the I-130 was processed? Does it just get canceled? Well
it’s important for you to keep your I-130 alive and there’s a way to ask for them to
extend it so they don’t cancel it so that the usually the NVC will send you an email
to let you know that it’s going to expire it. There’s a way to keep it aliv. Any other
takes on that to keeping that I-130? MARIE: You have to call the NVC. They have
a phone number. The best time to call is very late at night around 10:00 PM Pacific, 10:00
PM eastern time. You call them and just give a phone call and it’s going to keep your I-130
alive. You just have to contact NVC once a year and then you’ll go back to one year on
your I-130. For some cases you have to email your NVC. I don’t know where you’re from.
But give us a phone call. They are very, very helpful. Make sure you call them before the
I-130…you look at the last time you contacted NVC and then within one year you have to contact
them again to keep your I-130 alive. JACOB: Right. And again, if you need help
with that that’s what we’re here for. Dash Moore says hi. Hi Dash Moore, Deli Arebo,
If you want to apply for EB5, but you’re not…you’re an OPT stem and only have six months left,
would it be possible to stay past the end of date? No. EB5, the first step takes about
14 months at least. You have to find either…you have to go back on F1 or find another status.
I would just recommend for you to go back on F1, if you can for another year. Right
now EB5 we are waiting for our September extension hopefully. The future of this program is uncertain.
If you already do it now and again Deli because you’re watching this broadcast you get a special
a free consultation EB5 which typically we charged and I’ll be more than happy to walk
you through the process and outline how it’s going to work. But now is the time to become
an 85 applicant because once you are in there, if they changed the law, you’ll still be safe.
Mila, how are you? Mila has been amazing. She’s been following us for years, one of
our dedicated followers from the Philippines. You’re amazing. Thank you. Blush, brush. Meja,
can my husband and I anticipate an E2 visa by June of next year. Should we work with
your offer now. Of course, absolutely. Right now we are working with the London U.S. Embassy
and they had been very cooperative with us. We have quite a few cases there. If you start
now I anticipate that probably by early next year sometime, maybe by April you should be
able to get it done. Yeah, absolutely. Just send me an email or send us a private message
on the Facebook page and thank you for following us because we don’t take it for granted. Monica,
thank you for much. Dale thank you as well. Again, those of you that catch this a stream
not live because those of you guys is out here live. We’re going to know if your life
was a special red notification. But those of you that are going to watch this in an
hour or two or tomorrow you can continue posting your questions and we’ll continue to answer
them on the same thread or you can just send us a private message and we’ll continue to
answer. MARIE had something to say about the fires, the wildfires in California have. How’s
that affecting immigration? Why don’t you kind of share with us. And then again, any
other questions? We have five minutes left on the live stream. We always keep in 30 minutes
to respect the title of the attorneys and also your time but remember that you can also…We
have…okay, I’m going to butcher that name. Algan Nero. Did I say it correctly? Algan
Nero Erlivoda. What happened when your case is pending and you are no longer with with
the men? Well, if you no longer with the man there had to be a good reason for it. right?
What did he do to you? Did he do something bad? Anyway but aside from the fact that he
is not a good man, if you no longer with the man, if it’s a first interview so if you’re
doing a 45 adjustment and you’re no longer with your spouse, the case will not be approved.
It will be, denied unless there is abuse or even an abuse. It’s going to be very difficult
in the beginning to do it. If you have your second green card, if you move to the second
stage and you no longer with that person, then there’s a way to save it either by getting
divorced or if there’s any other abuse cases but if it’s the first right, MARIE, if it’s
the first 45if you’re no longer with them together before the interview it’s very difficult
to save you. MARIE Yeah. We do send our client and we do
request for an advance for one year because they often if there’s cases of abuse say it’s
an abuse by the U.S. citizen we let them file a VAWA for victim of abuse woman. JACOB: Correct. Does it makes sense? MARIE: We’ve always been very successful. JACOB: Yeah, so basically what MARIE is saying
that’s true. If you’re no longer with a man and there is an abuse in the relationship,
then there is a way to save the case. Again, if it’s a case specific question, which I
think it is, just send us an email or send a private message in the Facebook and we’ll
respond to you immediately. We were going to say hi to Hilda, Hilda Roselle. Thanks
for watching. And we have a Gaspar who has a question. My father put papers 15 years
ago. He’s an American citizen. I don’t have, you don’t have anything. Again, it depends
on the priority date. It looks like you don’t have any action on your case. Many times in
those old cases it could have been a situation with the case with a petition is close because
there was no activity. I highly encourage you to look at the case number and contact
immigration and the NVC to see if your case is no longer active because if you’re case
is no longer active, there’s no point for you to wait 20 years or whatever it’s going
to take. You really have to check on the status of your case. So Gaspar maybe you can tell
it to him in Spanish because I don’t think he understands English. Can you say it in
Spanish, Marie? You speak Spanish, right? Marie speaks Spanish and French. Unfortunately
I speak only Russian and Hebrew. Yeah. MARIE: You can go on a Visa Bulletin. Type
Google, Visa Bulletin look what is your priority date. Look at the date for a a child of the
U.S. citizen. Running, it takes long time. JACOB: Exactly, look at the dates. Monica
has another question. Another question is for your cousin. My cousin brother was in
the process to get his visa by way of his mother. His I-130 was approved and she needed
to send only financials. Unfortunately his mom passed away in July. What happens to his
case? So the question, because there are some cases where Monica, you can put a substitute
sponsor. There’s an act that came. It’s called, it’s called the sex that your sponsor act,
and so he may still be able to say this petition by using a substitute sponsor which could
be a brother, sister, parent. It depends on the case. I highly recommend your cousin to
contact our office so we can determine whether a substitute sponsor can be applied, right?
That’s a very good option because most people don’t know about it. MARIE Yeah. You have an I-130 approved You
can reinstate your…it’s called a humanitarian reinstatement. You’re going to beg at immigration
to accept another financial sponsor than your mom. It can be a brother or sister or your
father, the father of this person. We’ve been very successful. But to tell you in advance
to reinstate the I-130 is going to take two, three, four, five years. JACOB: Right. MARIE: It’s worth it. We’ve had success with
that. JACOB: Exactly. MARIE: We bring back to people because your
I-130 is already approved. If it was before…if she had passed away before approval of that
130 it’s almost impossible but… JACOB: There’s a way to save it. That’s the
bottom line Monica. Please get in touch with us and we’ll help you. Hilda Ouzel has a question.
Hello Hilda in the Philippines and Marie…you know Marie is married to a Filipino person,
so you know, we eat a lot of Lumpia here because of Marie. I wish. Good morning here in the
Philippines. I would like to ask if my husband can apply application here in the U.S. because
his case can’t travel alone because of his health condition. So your husband is a U.S.
citizen my understanding and he wants to file for you the Filipina spouse. He can do that
and it’s doable, but he going to need to prove domicile in the U.S. at some point. So there
are ways to prove it. Then you probably, you have to consult with an attorney, but to answer
your question, yes. If he is a U.S. citizen and he wants to file for you while in the
Philippines, he can still do that. Julia Gordonia is here. Our favorite client Julie. Bonjour
Julie. Julie is asking what, when the will we have to think about our E2 renewal before
expiration of the first one. Typically Julia…again Julia has been a client of ours and an amazing
E2 applicant. I would usually recommend clients to come to us at least eight months before
it expired so we can have enough time to discuss and plan the case. I would say about eight
months before the end of your case. Come to talk to us and we usually say two years before
at least talk about it so we can tell you if your case is good. Two years before it
expires. If it’s a five year E2 Visa do a case audit so you have two years to fix it.
But eight months before it expired, come to us so we can help you renew it and wish you
all the best Julie because you’re amazing. MARIE: It’s a business so I don’t think
you’re going to have a problem renewing it. JACOB: Exactly. Muktar is talking…he’s sorry
guys, joined you now I don’t know the topic. Can you please help me with the topic. We
talked about many things. We talked about changes in immigration, the DACA. We talked
about a more complicated matters in the green card interviews. We talked about Trump and
how amazing he is, all these things. You can ask her immigration question even if you missed
it. Remember the live stream will end and it’s going to be a replay so you can go back,
scroll back and listen to the whole thing from the beginning so you didn’t miss anything.
The fact that you’re here live Muktar is amazing because I can actually welcome you and say
hello. Maja, you have a question as a final question, do you happen to know if I study
with U.S. as a spouse of my husband, whether I qualify as a U.S. student or am I still
considered an international student? If your husband has a student visa, you are his wife,
you’re an F2. If you want to be a student you have to have your own reasons, all right?
That’s how it works. Gaspar. Thank you. Thank you. Dale here is how viable is the change
status H1B under H1B cap exempt institution with a few months left on OPT stem. if it’s
a CAP exempt…if it’s a cap exempt institution if you have a few months, I think it’s very
doable, right Marie? We need a couple…we need at least 45 days to do it because we
need time for the LCA. But make sure that it’s…we need to determine that it’s truly
cap exempt. Some people think it’s a cap and it’s not. If it’s truly cap exempt and we
verify it, you have time. MARIE: Yeah, I see your OPT stems. You put
this in kind of engineer or it’s basic so through this move. JACOB: It should be smooth. MARIE: You’re going have to pay probably for
you for payment processing. JACOB: Exactly, just like I said, email…send
us a message, we’ll review it and we’re more than happy to work with you. Again mention
the live stream to get a special surprise. Monica, awesome. I’ll have her contact you.
Perfect Monica. You’re even more awesome than this and then Julie. Thank you Julie. And
then Maja, last final question, and then we’re going to end this stream because 30 minutes
and we have to go to bed… we have to go back to work. Our clients are waiting and
again guys keep posting your questions. We’ll go back to answer me and Marie and last question
of May. Does the U.S. frown on bringing newborn children from the U.K. to the US? It doesn’t
look negative to the application? No. No, of course not. As long as they’re born in
the U.K. and they can fly, you can travel. No problems MARIE: As long as you have an authorization
if you did that. JACOB: Correct, If you can legally bring them
here. MARIE: Transitions on the person staying behind. JACOB: Exactly. If you can bring them legally
you can, you can come. No problem. Again May make sure you send us an email and I’ll put
my email again here. I’m more than happy to help you with your E2 case especially with
London. We love this embassy. One of the best out there. There we go. And once again, want
to thank you for watching our livestream, both for myself and from Attorney Marie. We’re
going to do it every week as long as we’re healthy and able to do it, and i f not, we’ll
bring the computer home and we’ll do it from home. But anyway, thanks for watching. And
again, what we want from you to do, the ones that are watching the live stream, make sure
you share it. There’s a share button at the bottom. You can share it so everybody can
see, your friends. If you can put a heart, there’s a heart right there. You can put some
hearts in there and we’ll continue to do that for you guys every Wednesday, 2:00 PM Pacific
Time our Immigration Live Show. Ask An Immigration Lawyer. Both Marie and me are thankful for
you. Karthik, let’s see. Last question. I promise, Terminated May 19, he got new admission
and he was thinking to cross the border, would have heard the new rules there. He has an
international student. His service terminated on May 19. He got a new admission. You mean
it has a new sentence or that’s a very complicated matter. MARIE: You can try a reinstatement if it’s
been less than five months of overstay. You should have a good reason why he lost his
status in the first case. Was it a mistake from the school or was it like messed up.
He didn’t attend school. You should have a good reason. It was the school messed up.
You can try reinstatement otherwise yes, the new rule. The new main law you start August.
What are we? August nine, he’s going to start accruing unlawful presence. Yes. JACOB: Tomorrow, so tomorrow is the last day
for students for accrue unlawful presence. We’ve done a video on this in our YouTube
channel and we talked about it in the live stream last week. Go back to a live stream
last week and you can hear about the changes for students. Anyway, guys, thanks for watching.
Peace and health and love from San Diego and we’ll see you next Wednesday, right? MARIE: Bye. JACOB: Bye. .
