It began with a complaint from a disgruntled employee.  An employee of Infosys, a billion-dollar East Indian IT company, blew the whistle on the company’s misuse of B-1 visitor’s visas, leading to an audit of the company’s I-9 files by the U.S. Department of Justice and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

Various companies have paid one million dollars or more in fines because of immigration violations.  The recent Infosys $34 million settlement is the largest settlement yet, and serves as a warning to potential employers to be certain that they are using visa properly, and are keeping accurate and updated records and files.

This article will discuss the proper use of the B-1 business visitor visa, as well as permissible business activities under NAFTA.

Bellingham Pride: Inclusive Festivities, Fun and Meaningful

Whenever my time allows me, I make sure to be a part of the Pride Celebrations regardless of location across the globe. However, it’s been over six years since I have attended the last Pride Celebration that was then in Brighton, England.

Last Sunday, the festivities during the Pride 2013 in Bellingham was quite fun and celebratory.  The participants and spectators enjoyed the parade, food and conversations among friends and acquaintances.  During the parade, my digital Nikon D7000 captured quite celebratory actions, of which I am sharing to anyone interested or who have missed it.

And many families shared the festivities with their tots and growing children. This shows a well[-balanced society thinking. Pride is not only meant for the LGBT community but the whole society. This was manifested in the participation of community members whom I met and enjoyed speaking with them, too.

Remarks of President Obama in Senegal while traveling.

“We believed in basic fairness”, “As a President, If you have been married in Massachussettes, you move some place else, you still married. Under Fed law, you should be able to obtain the benefits of any lawfully married couple” – President Obama

The US Supreme Court has issued its ruling on two controversial issues that divided Americans for many years.

In June 26, 2013, the American LGBT Citizens gained equal respect, rights and privileges to their counterparts in the American Society within the Federal Level of government.   The Supreme Court Judges removed the second class classification that was provided to the LGBT Citizens and recognized all Same-Sex Marriages in all states that allowed marriages, as equal to their counterparts among heterosexuals.

“This ruling is a victory for couples who have long fought for equal treatment under the law; for children whose parents’ marriages will now be recognized, rightly, as legitimate; for families that, at long last, will get the respect and protection they deserve; and for friends and supporters who have wanted nothing more than to see their loved ones treated fairly and have worked hard to persuade their nation to change…
