One of the main reasons people come to the U.S. from other countries is to work. There are many U.S. companies that hire people from other countries because of their expertise in certain areas. Recently, there has been a recall of employment authorizations that were issued, resulting in problems for foreign workers.

If a person was issued a U.S. work permit using form I-589, they may be asked to give them back. A printing mistake was made for those who were issued these cards in April and May and affect mostly workers who petitioned for political asylum and affected around 800 workers. Affected workers will receive new cards within a few weeks. The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) states that these workers are still authorized to work in the U.S. This is the second recall in six weeks when over 8500 green cards were recalled in May because of incorrect dates.

They understand the many different visas available and can make sure their client’s needs are met and that they are alerted to any issues that they may not be aware of.
