        Most notably, Mexican immigration, particularly of unauthorized immigrants, increased sharply after NAFTA went into effect. As already noted, NAFTA allows for temporary migration but only of certain professionals under strict guidelines; no provisions were made for the temporary movement of low-skilled workers.   Chapter 16 of NAFTA, entitled ‘Temporary Entry for Business Persons’, focuses on business immigration and the creation of a temporary NAFTA work visa category to facilitate the movement of skilled workers. When NAFTA was signed in the early s, the U.S. immigration law was amended to create the TN visa for Canadians and Mexicans.

        The causes of the changes in immigration patterns are varied and complicated, but the key factor is the policies associated with the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).

His publications include 11 editions of the Canada-U.S. Business Immigration Handbook, published by the leading law book publisher in Canada. The +-page TN Handbook for Canadians--How to Work in the U.S. Under NAFTA, is the first major legal work to widely appear in e-book format. It is the leading, if not only, book exclusively about TN.

      In a study for the Mexican government, the World Bank found that the extreme rural poverty rate of 35 percent in –94, before NAFTA, jumped to 55 percent in –98, after NAFTA took. This page provides access to handbooks and manuals that have been approved for release to the public. You may also find USCIS policy and procedures within our Policy Manual and our Policy Memoranda pages. The Administrative Appeals Office (AAO) Practice Manual describes rules, procedures, and recommendations for appearing before the AAO.; The M, Handbook for Employers, and I-9 .
