Information about residence and employment for foreigners is being continuously updated by the Ministry of Interior and the Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs on their dedicated websites. Nevertheless, due to the fast-changing developments, searching the necessary information on the website of the Ministry of Interior has often been complicated, even for Czech specialists, let alone for foreigners. Therefore, our members have created several well-structured materials for foreigners that can be often accessed in several languages. Individual counselling services can be conducted via Internet or by telephone, and, if necessary, also face-to-face.
Dear friends, this is an urgent question to all foreigners on behalf of the Czech migrants assisting organisations.
Queridos amigos, esto es una pregunta urgente de las ONGs checas que ayudan a los migrantes.
The new European Commission lead by Ursula von der Leyen was approved by the European Parliament on November 27 and took office on December 1, 2019. Migration still remains among the EU's top priority policy areas and also one of the most divisive ones. The new Commission plans to introduce a new European asylum system that will certainly be a hotly debated issue.
The United States, historically defined as a land of immigrants, faces an ongoing debate about the effectiveness and morality of its migration procedures. Recent media coverage of harsh conditions at detention centers along the southern border and debates gearing up for the 2020 presidential election have drawn public scrutiny of issues of migration. Calling attention to potential violations of the UN Declaration of Human Rights, this paper emphasizes the urgency of addressing migration policy in the United States. Through comparing candidates for the 2020 election and their policy programs, this paper reviews the current state of migration policy in the United States, alternatives, and the likelihood of their adoption.
