The Law, Politics, and Facts about US Immigration – The Black, White, Grey; and Red & Blue (Hosted by The Law Office of Sweta Khandelwal)

Date: June 14, 2017 Time: 6:00 PM - 8:30 PM
Event Description

Immigration law and policy today is rarely black & white: there are shades of grey; and of course, red or blue! The objective of this session is to show how foreign born entrepreneurs and start-up business owners can stay in the United States, start and work for their company-without being deported! It will also explain the basics of how US business’ can hire and retain foreign born talent.

Knowledge of US visa laws is critical to the success, continuance and growth of most Silicon Valley business’ and obtaining the correct visa is often the first hurdle faced by foreign founders. So, we will explore the visa options available for foreign entrepreneurs. Then, as business grows, we find that there is no escape from hiring foreign born talent, especially in high tech. So, we will deal with the challenge to find the right work visa for the right employee. And we must remind ourselves that even though we may be in blue territory, we need to understand the challenges that the Trump administration poses to an economy that relies on highly trained workers to compete in a global environment.

This session will tell you all that you need to know about US Immigration laws as they impact US business. We will explore the old and the new and will also try to venture into the uncertain!
