Dear Client, Reader, Listener, Viewer and Friend,
What a year! 2020 will sure go down in history as one of the most difficult years ever. And among all the chaos, we have finally arrived at Election Day.
As an immigration law firm, we have one of the greatest privileges of helping our clients reach their American Dream of becoming a U.S. citizen. Thank you to all of clients that allowed us to be part of your journey. If you never read about my journey to American citizenship, here is the story.
I know that you hold your citizenship responsibilities dear. Nevertheless, I cannot help but remind you to be part of democracy and part of one of the most consequential elections in history.
If you have not voted already, you will have until the evening of Tuesday November 3rd to cast your vote. Please do! And if you feel inclined, we would love to see your photos of you casting your ballot. If you send us your photos, we would love to be able to post them on our WIL social media. Or, feel free to tag me on social media so I can reshare.
A few notes:
- If you are voting tomorrow (on Tuesday), and it is a mail-in voting area- drop your ballot at a ballot drop box only. Do NOT mail at a USPS mailing box!
- If you are voting in person, please do take a snack/drink with you and please do wear a mask.

The face of immigration and the course of this country will change if Trump gets reelected. In October 2020 alone, we have seen many changes in immigration regulations- on H1Bs, and more (I will not list them today as I don’t want to distract you from the message of voting). But suffice to say, H1B visas will not be the same next year. Visa specific travel bans remain in place. Other areas of immigration are also affected.
Your vote matters. Please vote.
If you are a green card holder and are not able to vote- you are an influencer! You can ensure your friends and family vote. You have a role to play too.
Thank you and keep us posted!
