Miami, FL (Law Firm Newswire) May 24, 2013 – Now that politicians are pulling together to draft an immigration reform bill, the technology sector has started lobbying for skilled workers. “The timing could not be better for the technology sector,” indicated Larry S. Rifkin, a Miami immigration lawyer and managing partner at Rifkin & Fox-Isicoff, with law offices in Miami, Florida and Orlando, Florida, “particularly if the political powers that be are sincerely working towards a comprehensive immigration reform bill. While that is the latest news out of Washington, it would stand to reason the current party camaraderie may not […]

Miami, FL (Law Firm Newswire) May 17, 2013 – No matter politicians say, it might not be what they are really doing when it comes to immigration reform. “These days, no matter what news comes out of Washington, one has to regard it with a jaundiced eye. This is due to the fact that traditionally, Republicans and Democrats have a long history of not getting along. Certainly, we all know how they did not agree on how immigration reform should be handled. Mostly, the perfect storm of avoidance delayed reform until now —- maybe,” added Larry S. Rifkin, a Miami […]

Miami, FL (Law Firm Newswire) April 19, 2013 – High skilled immigration shortages are a real issue for information technology companies. “Field workers are not the only issue facing America when it comes to the current immigration system, the one that has been broken for so long no one remembers what ‘normal’ is any longer. The basic issue with the information technology (IT) sector is a skill gap. They need more qualified people and thanks to immigration laws, can’t get enough of them,” outlined Larry S. Rifkin, a Miami immigration lawyer and managing partner at Rifkin & Fox-Isicoff, with law […]

Miami, FL (Law Firm Newswire) April 12, 2013 – No one in their right mind would ever seriously think 95,000 miles of shoreline could ever be secure. “Try imagining a secure border that runs 95,000 miles from one side of the country to another. It just cannot be done, which means even the short segments that are up and being patrolled are a joke. For years now Americans have been talking about securing the borders, but no one seems to grasp the reality of not being ‘able’ to achieve that,” suggested Larry S. Rifkin, a Miami immigration lawyer and managing […]

Miami, FL (Law Firm Newswire) March 22, 2013 – High profile battles facing Obama’s administration may quash immigration reform. “If you follow the news, it’s no surprise to see that money, health reform, and other issues have been dogging the footsteps of the White House since before the election. Somewhere in that morass of political confusion lies the promise of immigration reform. Will there be an agreement this year, or term? Or not? Many are betting not, while at the same time hoping against hope that it won’t turn out that way,” opined Larry S. Rifkin, a Miami immigration lawyer […]

Miami, FL (Law Firm Newswire) March 15, 2013 – The agricultural industry is still hopeful that 2013 is the year for immigration reform. “Despite the kick in the teeth the farming industry got last year, they are still optimistic something can get done this year in terms of addressing immigration reform. In fact, comprehensive immigration reform is at the very top of their list, and for good reasons,” stated Larry S. Rifkin, a Miami immigration lawyer and managing partner at Rifkin & Fox-Isicoff, with law offices in Miami, Florida and Orlando, Florida. It remains vitally important that the produce industry […]

Miami, FL (Law Firm Newswire) February 11, 2013 – Sandy Hook shook up the whole country. Many political watchers wonder if gun control will delay immigration reform. “In the wake of Sandy Hook, Obama made a pledge to do something about a package of gun control measures, and to do that as soon as soon as possible in the new term. Immigration advocates are wondering if this will divert the politicians from their immigration reform goals,” remarked Larry S. Rifkin, a Miami immigration lawyer and managing partner at Rifkin & Fox-Isicoff, with law offices in Miami, Florida and Orlando, Florida. […]

Miami, FL (Law Firm Newswire) February 4, 2013 – There is no more room for debate over immigration reform. It is time to get to work. Just one quick look at the voting results in the presidential election reveals a very telling story. The immigration reform debate is over. It is now time to get with the program and get things done. “This is what a recent poll indicated,” remarked Larry S. Rifkin, a Miami immigration lawyer and managing partner at Rifkin & Fox-Isicoff, with law offices in Miami, Florida and Orlando, Florida, “that close to 62 percent clearly said […]

Miami, FL (Law Firm Newswire) January 21, 2013 – With a large majority of Latino voters backing him, President Obama was re-elected. What is next for immigration reform? “It’s hard to say what will happen now with immigration reform. Many Americans know what needs to be done, but the question is whether or not it will actually get done, and not dissolve into a war of words and inaction once again,” suggested Larry S. Rifkin, a Miami immigration lawyer and managing partner at Rifkin & Fox-Isicoff, with law offices in Miami, Florida and Orlando, Florida. One thing is certain. The […]

Miami, FL (Law Firm Newswire) January 14, 2013 – Voters do not mess around when they want to send politicians a message. Latinos overwhelmingly voted for Obama. “There is going to be a whole lot shuffling and scuffling going on when the House gets back into session,” said Larry S. Rifkin, a Miami immigration lawyer and managing partner at Rifkin & Fox-Isicoff, with law offices in Miami, Florida and Orlando, Florida. “And that is due to the fact that if Republicans do not want to face eventual expulsion, they will need to do something, fast – like pass significant immigration […]

Miami, FL (Law Firm Newswire) December 26, 2012 – This is a recurrent theme that will not go away anytime soon. Thank ICE raids for the labor shortage. “Now that the election is over, will the ICE raids continue? Chances are they will and the results of those raids will drastically affect the U.S. agricultural sector. There is just about no one left to work the fields. Americans certainly aren’t, despite their cries that undocumented workers are taking their jobs away from them. If they wanted those jobs, they would be out there working. They are not,” pointed out Larry […]

Miami, FL (Law Firm Newswire) December 20, 2012 – When a foreign student tried to bomb the Federal Reserve building in New York, it was obvious immigration security was slipshod. “This story was greeted with a great deal of consternation when people realized that immigration security was not what it is cracked up to be. A 21-year-old alleged terrorist, in the U.S. on a student visa, attempted to detonate what he thought was a 1,000 bomb in front of the Federal Reserve building. He was actually here to recruit a terror cell to wage a jihad attack,” outlined Larry S. […]

Miami, FL (Law Firm Newswire) November 28, 2012 – We have all heard this before, that immigration reform is a priority. If so, why no action? “To hear a politician speak, including Obama, immigration reform is a top priority, and that is why he suspended deportation for some illegal immigrants. That got him higher ratings with Latin voters, something he needs to win again. The ratings may be relatively short-lived though, since Obama’s administration has one of the highest records for deportations. Call it a temporary stop-gap to garner votes, or call it outright bribery, because it is,” said Larry […]

Miami, FL (Law Firm Newswire) November 19, 2012 – Agricultural leaders are going hoarse, calling for immigration reform. “All across America, agricultural leaders are calling for immigration reform – preferably yesterday. Their calls to action are falling on deaf ears. Immigration reform is still where it was at years ago, stalled and being chipped away at, in fits and starts, with none of the tinkering doing much to help anyone,” suggested Larry S. Rifkin, a Miami immigration lawyer and managing partner at Rifkin & Fox-Isicoff, with law offices in Miami, Florida and Orlando, Florida. “The fact is, if the farmers […]

Miami, FL (Law Firm Newswire) October 24, 2012 – It is an interesting way to make a point – a troop of illegal immigrants touring the U.S. by bus. “It was and is a unique way to make a point,” said Larry S. Rifkin, a Miami immigration lawyer and managing partner at Rifkin & Fox-Isicoff, with law offices in Miami, Florida and Orlando, Florida. “Illegal immigrants in a bus touring the nation on their way to the Democratic National Convention. They are fed up with living in fear and aiming to raise public awareness of their situation, something they feel […]

Miami, FL (Law Firm Newswire) October 17, 2012 – This administration has deported more illegal immigrants than any other government in history. What is next? “It’s tough to look at what is going on in this election campaign without comparing it to so many others and seeing the same things happening over and over,” remarked Larry S. Rifkin, a Miami immigration lawyer and managing partner at Rifkin & Fox-Isicoff, with law offices in Miami, Florida and Orlando, Florida. “On one hand they say the system needs to be fixed. No one could argue with that. On the other hand, they […]

Miami, FL (Law Firm Newswire) September 18, 2012 – Dreamers across the country cheered loudly when Obama announced a partial implementation of the DREAM Act. However, it is still in stall mode. “It’s nice that Obama went ahead and announced a partial implementation of the DREAM Act, just in time for the election, with the not-so-subtle intent of garnering Latin votes. However, the partial implementation does nothing for the Act as a whole. It is still in stall mode,” says Larry S. Rifkin, a Miami immigration lawyer and managing partner at Rifkin & Fox-Isicoff, with law offices in Miami, Florida […]

Miami, FL (Law Firm Newswire) September 14, 2012 – Allowing Dreamers to be bumped to the end of the deportation line and to vote does not solve the long-term problem. One of the things you have to love about America is our ability to compromise. Fair is fair, and we love to get something by negotiating and bargaining until both parties are happy with the outcome. “However, there are some things that you just can’t split hairs on – immigration reform is one of them. It is either handled, or it is not. Any halfway measure simply serves to muck […]

Miami, FL (Law Firm Newswire) August 23, 2012 – The hot debate over immigration reform never quits. It is one of the few issues that has significantly polarized the country. “It’s one thing to debate an issue into the ground but quite another to finally get off principles and do something,” said Larry S. Rifkin, a Miami immigration lawyer and managing partner at Rifkin & Fox-Isicoff. “The great immigration reform debate has resulted in no compromise and no clear solution.” The longer politicians willfully ignore immigration reform, the more harm will come to the agricultural industry. This is not a […]

Miami, FL (Law Firm Newswire) August 13, 2012 – Many believe the Latin vote is Obama’s only hope for re-election. “This election, compared to the first one Obama ran, is quite entertaining, although for different reasons,” said Larry S. Rifkin, managing partner at Rifkin & Fox-Isicoff. “During the first one, the House was on fire to tackle immigration reform, yesterday if possible. Of course, the train went off the tracks, and ‘right now’ became ‘when we get to it, if ever.’” This election is a make or break show for Obama, with many believing the Latin vote will be his […]
