Presented in partnership with Ogletree Deakins

From its initial days, the Trump administration has made immigration a major focus. Now, after the issuance of several executive orders, a major escalation in worksite enforcement, increases in border security, heightened scrutiny of visa usage, directives calling for reform of several employment-based visa programs and pending renegotiation of the NAFTA trade deal, employers are trying to assess what the net impact to their businesses may be.

Our speakers will review the most significant changes in immigration policy and enforcement that have unfolded since the Trump administration took office, and update participants on the status of ongoing court challenges and key legislative proposals before pivoting to a discussion of what concrete steps and planning employers should have in place to keep their businesses ahead of the curve.
