- How businesses, from startups to large companies, can benefit from hiring foreign nationals and how doing so will help ease the US Labor shortage,
- Which industries traditionally most benefit from finding top foreign talent to help them succeed,
- The numbers supporting how many successful U.S. companies are led by immigrants,

- Upcoming legislative developments possible in Congress this year,
- How the pandemic has affected immigration and processing times, and,
- Immigration focusing on individuals including students, relatives, and investors.
