Discussion

My brother and I had a discussion about “immigrants” and I realized I was not well versed in the current issues. So, I started listening to this podcast and very happy with the valuable true content. Thank you.

Wonderful very informative

Love this podcast! Very informative, easy to listen to. I’ve learned a lot about immigration while trying to help my husband gain legal permanent residence. Wish you could talk a little about the I-601A wavier and how hard it is to get that approved. And any tips that people that isn’t using a lawyer could do to make the process go smoothly.
