The Department of Homeland Security announced recently that it would allow 180,000 spouses of highly-skilled foreign employees to also apply for employment authorizations. After this year, it is estimated that approximately 55,000 spouses annually can do the same.

According to UDM Law Adjunct Professor Alexandra LaCombe, "The next non-political step in immigration reform to benefit our nation is to quickly reduce the wait time for highly-skilled foreign workers who are employed here, but can’t get permanent residence for sometimes more than 10 years. . . .  Processing permanent status applications faster will make the U.S. more attractive to the workers we want and need to retain, rather than force them to keep eyes on other countries that may offer better options." 

Professor LaCombe is a managing partner and attorney at Fragomen, Del Rey, Bernsen and Loewy in Troy and teaches Immigration Law in UDM's innovative Law Firm Program.
