Trump asylum memorandum likely to prompt a legal challenge

Media outlets in North Carolina and around the country have devoted a lot of attention in recent months to the ongoing legal challenges to some of President Trump's more controversial immigration policies. Trump has declared the situation on the nation's southern border a national emergency and has issued a flurry of executive orders designed to stem the flow of migrants heading toward the United States from Central America. However, most of his efforts have been rebuffed by the courts.

H-4 visa recipients fret over proposed rule change

In 2015, the Obama administration modified the immigration rules to allow the spouses of H-1B visa holders who are applying for permanent residence to work in the United States. The move proved to be a popular one as 91,000 H-4 visa holders in North Carolina and around the country later filed applications. However, President Trump has been a harsh critic of H-1B visas, which allow employers to hire skilled foreign workers, and he has vowed to scrutinize all aspects of the program.

Young immigrants face 'grave harm' in detention centers

North Carolina residents may be aware that the living conditions of over 10,000 immigrant children being held in federal custody at the U.S.-Mexico border have become the source of multiple lawsuits in recent weeks. According to these cases, the bad conditions in which these children are confined are used as a way to punish immigrant families in order to deter them from entering the country. The lawsuits further claim the goal of the federal government is to deter immigration in general.
