United States - President Trump Executive Order Analysis and Immigration Impact
  • The first three weeks of Donald Trump's presidency have resulted in widespread governmental change to immigration policy, including his signing of Executive Orders which directly affect immigration policy and legislation.

    Berry Appleman & Leiden has been actively monitoring, analyzing and reporting on the aforementioned Executive Orders.
    Analysis of Trump's Executive Order on border wall sanctuary cities:

    • Trump's executive orders represent steps toward fulfilling promises that were at the heart of his campaign for the presidency, but a number of questions remain as to the logistics of building and funding a border wall. Attempts to strip sanctuary cities—including Chicago, Los Angeles, New York and San Francisco—of funding could set up legal and political battles between the federal government and local jurisdictions. An in-depth look at how Trump's presidency could affect high-skilled immigration is available on BAL's website

    Analysis of Trump's Executive Order suspending visa interview waiver programs:

    • Suspending the IWP will require more visa applicants to appear for in-person interviews at the consulate in their home country, and will likely lead to delays in scheduling interview appointments. Applicants who now must complete an interview may need to allow for several weeks of additional time to obtain an interview appointment.

    Analysis of Trump's Executive Order banning the travel of nationals from seven countries:

    • Companies should identify current employees who may be subject to the travel ban and work with counsel to develop appropriate legal strategies. Travel to the U.S. could be delayed, and employees already in the U.S. should exercise extreme caution before departing the country. To read more about this executive order, please click here.

    President Trump is also expected to sign an Executive Order affecting high-skilled workers and foreign students. To read our overview and analysis of this proposed Executive Order, please click here.
