Green Cards Without Expiration Dates Should be Renewed

Green Cards Without Expiration Dates Should be Renewed

 

In 2007, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) presented a proposal to eliminate hundreds of thousands of green cards issued years ago without expiration dates. Although the proposal was never implemented into law, the last seven years have seen a concerted push for immigration officers to strongly advise travelers to renew green cards without expiration dates.  

USCIS believes that replacing all outstanding permanent resident cards without expiration dates is critical to national security. Although green cards issued between 1977 and 1989 which do not have expiration dates are still recognized by USCIS and are still valid, USCIS has stated that it is critical to remove them from circulation.

Unannounced Workplace Site Inspections Expanded to Include L-1 Employers

 

The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) Fraud Detection and National Security division has announced it is expanding unannounced workplace site inspections to include employers of L-1 intra-company transfers. Previously reserved only for companies that employed H-1B workers, this expansion of the program to include the L-1 category means that any company that employs workers in either H-1B or L-1 status may now be subject to an unannounced workplace site visit.

Worksite visits are designed to detect fraud in the immigration system. Since their introduction in 2009, tens of thousands of unannounced site inspections have been completed at companies that employ H-1B workers.
 

Low Cost Walk-in Pet Clinic Opens on Niagara Street


BUFFALO, N.Y. - A new clinic in Buffalo is giving pet owners a more affordable choice.

The West Side Pet Clinic located at 1245 Niagara Street is more than just a one-stop vaccine shop, but doesn't have everything a full service veterinarian clinic or animal hospital does.

They are able to treat pets with minor issues such as ear infections or fleas and can also administer all the basic vaccines that pets need and give full physical examinations.

The West Side Clinic is able to offer lower prices because they require less staff, use an affordable quality product line and they don't have two-thirds of the equipment animal hospitals have.
