To say that this year has been a whirlwind is an understatement, but AILA and its members have responded. Every. Single. Time. They have soaked up new information and drawn on their commitment to immigrants and immigration law to meet challenges head on.
We wanted to take a moment to reflect on some of the most viewed and read pieces AILA has released this year. We’ve covered everything from H-1Bs to family detention, from MAVNI to the latest travel ban updates. There is truly something for everyone; take a look at these resources as you reflect on 2017.
The most viewed video this year was a Quicktake with Margaret Stock, describing where things stood with the MAVNI Program. The next most popular was a video featuring Asylum Primer author Dree Collopy on the Revised Credible and Reasonable Fear Lesson Plans.
Rounding out the top five videos:
- Interview Requirement for Employment-Based Green Card Applicants with Diane Rish
- DHS Memos on Interior and Border Enforcement with Greg Chen
- President Trump’s Executive Orders with Greg Chen
On the blog side, we relaunched the AILA blog on June 19, bringing Think Immigration to AILA members and the public. Between the new, more interactive design, new and returning authors, and timely content, our readership skyrocketed, more than doubling in the last half of the year. The most interesting blog posts (based solely on number of readers) were:
- H-1B Visa Trends: Is This the New Normal? by Sandra Feist
- When Law Professors Attack: Four False Assumptions in the WSJ Op-Ed by Jennifer Minear
- Wasting Money, One Interview at a Time by Anastasia Tonello
- MAVNI: A Successful Program Currently SNAFUed by Roland Lenard
- Change in Policy for Cuban Immigrants by Tammy Lin
Just like you, we’re looking ahead to 2018 and we are committed to bringing you the latest analysis through our blogs and videos in the new year. See you in 2018!
