In this video, attorney Jacob J. Sapochnick discusses the future of immigration law under President elect Donald Trump. For more information just keep on watching.

Overview: 

Donald Trump is set to become the next President of the United States on January 20, 2017.

He has stated that Americans should have the opportunity to fill occupations being offered to foreign nationals first.
