    Celebrating the Growth of the 'Immigration Nerds' Podcast

    Celebrating the Growth of the 'Immigration Nerds' Podcast

    This week's Immigration Nerds episode is a special one as we celebrate the growth of our podcast to become a must-listen in our industry and a top-rated immigration podcast.
    But how did we get here? In early 2018, Hiba Anver, now an EIG partner, and host/producer Ian Gaines, then an immigration paralegal, imagined a podcast that would shine a spotlight on all types of immigration and give a microphone to diverse storytellers. This week, Hiba and Ian reflect on the making of the podcast and the past four years of guests, issues, and the impact of this flagship podcast from Erickson Immigration Group.
    And, a note from our producer, Ian Gaines: "This is a journey that I’m personally proud to have embarked upon and watched grow. After this episode, I will pass the microphone of this podcast, that you have all come to enjoy and gain insight from over the years. Thank you all for your support over these past years; I am truly grateful."

    Top Covid Resilient Countries to Travel to This Summer

    Top Covid Resilient Countries to Travel to This Summer

    As the summer approaches many countries across the board are opening up to accommodate the expected influx of tourism as the weather gets warmer. And with that in mind, Bloomberg created a ranking system called the covid resilience index to help guide you along the way. The system aggregates each country’s lockdown severity, vaccinated travel routes, flight capacity, vaccine doses per 100 people, reopening progress, and quality life index (which takes in universal health care coverage and human development ratings). This episode will cover the top 10 countries which we hope can be a cheat sheet of what is required when entering a foreign country, as you decide your summer plans with the family.

    In this week's Immigration Nerds podcast, we talk to Aaron Karnell, Erickson Immigration Group Senior Attorney, Government Affairs, about the forthcoming policy change, bipartisan concerns about border security, and immigration policy at the US Southern Border without Title 42.
