This year’s program will examine key immigration trends and hot topics for 2013.  You will hear from Washington insiders about what is likely to happen with immigration legislation in the coming months, including the real possibility of Comprehensive Immigration Reform.  Will anything move on bills eliminating the per-country limit for employment-based cases, or increasing immigration opportunities for high-skilled workers?  What can we expect from the Department of Labor - more audits, supervised recruitment?  Can employers expect continued increases in ICE enforcement activities and Fraud Detection and National Security (FDNS) inspections?

In this year’s Institute hear an outstanding faculty of leading practitioners in the field discuss recent reforms and developments that impact your practice.  Topics will include issues related to Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals Program (DACA) applications, new immigration initiatives in Washington and around the country, immigrant and nonimmigrant processing issues, and new laws and policies related to enforcement.
