Miller Mayer immigration attorney Steve Yale-Loehr was quoted by the New York Times in “Missing Foreign Workers Add to Hiring Challenges.” He said, “Employers are having to wait a long time to get their petitions approved, and renewals are not being processed in a timely manner. It’s going to take a long time for them to work through the backlog.” Find the article here (subscription required).
Steve was interviewed by the Cornellians (Cornell University’s online magazine) in “The Ins and Outs of Immigration Law.” He discussed the current state of the U.S. immigration system and other topics. In response to a question about whether now is the toughest time in American history to immigrate legally, he said, “Yes. In my 30-plus years of practicing immigration law, I’ve found it the most challenging in terms of the background checks that are required and the slowness of the process. Then you have the pandemic on top of everything else: it’s hard to get a visa interview in an embassy. I feel sorry for people who are trying to immigrate to the U.S. now.” Find the article here.
The Florence Immigration Project gave the Cornell Law School asylum clinic a pro bono award. Steve, who co-directs the asylum clinic, is included in the multimedia awards booklet found here.
