United States Immigration Reform 2013
Part of the Certify Translations mission is to bring people together, and immigration is responsible for this, and much more, in the United States and the rest of the world. The ongoing immigration reform debate in the U.S. should make complete sense to onlookers everywhere, as America is a “Nation of Immigrants”, a status that is evident all the way from the street level right up to the White House. From Poland andChina, through to Argentina and Mexico—the stories of the U.S.A.’s past all started abroad. However, the stories are still being written and an effective immigration policy will ensure a prosperous future for the American people.
Tough but Fair
While the immigration bill that is up for discussion seeks to create a pathway to citizenship for the nation’s 11 million undocumented immigrants, the immigration process will still take time and require paperwork. If the bill is successful, undocumented immigrants will need to register with the government and complete steps such as background checks and the demonstration of a U.S. work history. For people in this situation who need to translate work-related documents, or who require certified legal translations to prove a clear personal history, Certify Translations can ease the burden, as we specialize in translations for the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).
Ensuring the Future Prosperity of the U.S.A.
Importantly, even if the proposed framework is successful in its goal of modernizing the visa program so that domestic companies can better use it to attract foreign talent, the challenges will also remain for H-1B visa applicants. For example, people who hold foreign degrees, or who have completed education, training, or experience in other countries, will need to demonstrate equivalence with U.S. qualifications. As the translation of academic transcripts is another of our professional translation services, the futures of prospective immigrants are also covered by Certify Translations.
Helping to fix a Broken System
Unfortunately, the United States immigration system is not working and President Obama has referred to it as a “broken” system that needs “fixing”. At Certify Translations, we simply want to help in the way that we know best—through the provision of world-class translations and certification where necessary. Plus, our vast reach means that we are ready to accommodate further developments, such as job creation efforts in Mexico to reduce the incidence of illegal border crossings—as a global translation agency, we have delivered countless business translations to companies for their localization work. Everybody seems to agree that immigration reform needs to happen now and, as we are available 24/7, please feel free to contact us at any time if you need support with the future of America’s immigration policy.
