Happy Holidays to all of you!

This month's newsletter discusses how removing undocumented workers, as has been hinted in the recent election cycle, would affect all of us financially. Many people believe that illegal immigrants are taking native-born jobs and draining the economy. However, a recent report by the Center for American Progress recently released a report that debunks all of these claims. Read on to learn more. 

For the holidays the office will be closed on December 22, 23, 26, 29 and 30th.

On Dec 27th and 28th the office will be open but with shortened hours.

If you call the office during the holidays and get our voicemail, please send an email to LK@lindakaplan.com and we will contact you as soon as possible. 

If you have any questions about this topic, or anything else related to immigration and my practice, please do not hesitate to ask.
