I am in Madrid for the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) Rome District Chapter spring conference. Over the course of two intense days, presenters have discussed such timely topics as the travel ban and waivers, interviews for employment-based adjustment cases, increased incidences of administrative processing, general issues regarding "extreme vetting," as well as always relevant topics such as “must-haves” for a successful E-1 and E-2 application. Earlier today we even got a tour of the US Embassy in Madrid. (Sadly, they didn't let us take pictures.) Attending these conferences is an excellent way for immigration practitioners such as myself to hear the latest tips and strategies and stay up-to-date on developments in the immigration law world. Now let's have some jamon ibérico!
