Miller Mayer immigration attorney Steve Yale-Loehr was quoted by Forbes in “Trump Speeds Up Plans to Force Foreign Students, Others Out of U.S.” Steve noted, “The Trump administration seems to be doing everything it can to stop all immigration to the United States. Families are separated and employers can’t bring in needed workers. These latest actions are hurting, not helping, our economy.” The article can be found here.
Steve was quoted by Inside Higher Ed in “An ‘Untenable Situation’,” regarding the new Trump administration policy to prohibit international students in the United States from enrolling exclusively in online courses while remaining in the United States. “There are a lot of ambiguities in the new broadcast guidance and students are trying to figure out their options. It’s particularly confusing because many colleges have not decided yet what kinds of classes they’ll be offering this fall semester—and even if colleges have made decisions, they may need to change them because of the ever-evolving nature of the COVID-19 pandemic. A university may start with hybrid classes, but then feel it needs to change to all online classes partway through the semester. This broadcast guidance does not answer those kinds of nitty-gritty details,” he said. The article can be found here.
Steve was quoted by the New York Times in “Appeals Court Strikes Down Trump Administration’s Ban,” regarding the third-country asylum policy. He said, “The Trump administration is sure to appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court.” The article can be found here.
Steve was quoted by the Progressive in “Closing the Door on Asylum.” He said that to begin with, the public should comment on a proposed rule to restrict asylum before that window closes on July 15. He also called for Congressional oversight hearings. He called the proposed regulations “the broadest assault on asylum that we have seen in decades.” The article can be found here.
Steve was quoted by Univision in “Por qué Trump no puede reformar el sistema migratorio por decreto y sin el Congreso: explicación de los expertos,” regarding President Trump’s plan for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals reform through an executive order. “Un presidente no puede cambiar la ley de inmigración a través de una orden ejecutiva” (“A president cannot change immigration law through an executive order”), he said.
