Immigration laws have changed dramatically since the late 19th century. As recent as 2015 to the present, new regulations have been proposed as a way to further reform immigration processes. Current permanent labor certification ads reflect these possible changes.
A huge concern about immigration is safety. Therefore, the United States Government has passed laws to make it more difficult for foreign persons to enter the country. One of the reasons why is because of the scare of terrorism. This fear especially arose in the U.S. since September 11, 2001 after two World Trade Center towers, WTC Building 7, and surrounding buildings were allegedly hit by foreign hijackers using aircraft.
However, this does not mean that everyone who enters illegally is a terrorist. In fact, some families often arrive to the U.S. from other countries seeking refuge. In this case, the process of entry into the country is sometimes expedited. However, an effort is being made to place limits on entry into the country for reasons of seeking asylum while accommodating for as many refugees as possible.
One of the other top concerns right now regarding the entry of new persons into the U.S. is the diseases people bring with them. The Ebola virus was one concern documented from about 2014, and it required careful monitoring to prevent more than the handful (at least two) of U.S. deaths it already caused.
Concerns about making sure persons are immunized from chicken pox, scabies and other diseases also have been prevalent. To ensure health of all the persons living in the U.S., an effort is being made to make sure people enter the country legally and take required health precautions.
Laws pertaining to who is allowed to work in the United States are also tightening. Therefore, companies who publish permanent labor certification ads often are careful about how they recruit foreign workers. Businesses in the U.S. also usually comply with rules about first opening up career opportunities to U.S. job applicants before hiring people who are not yet citizens.
Many guidelines apply to various conditions of temporary and permanent U.S. employment. Oftentimes, companies who want to understand these laws usually find an ad agency to help them write legitimate work orders. Some marketing service providers are in touch with lawyers who provide this necessary information for companies who want to prevent legal trouble.
