Immigration attorney Ann Allott addresses Cherry Creek Republican Women
By Scottie Taylor Iverson
Among her many honors and awards, Ann Allott has been designated a Colorado Super Lawyer since 2006. She has considerable experience handling the entire spectrum of immigration and nationality matters. She has represented employees and their families from companies in all parts of the U.S. and many countries. She revealed sometimes surprising and fascinating statistics about the hot topic of immigration.
Deportation is harsher now and 410,000 people were removed from the U.S. this past year even for minor infractions. Population has changed. Demographics are changing. Japan and the U.S. are shrinking. More adult diapers are sold than infant diapers. The Mexican fertility rate is down 72 percent. Since 1986, the cost of education has gone up dramatically. Thirty-eight million people in the U.S. were not born here. Eleven million people are undocumented. In relating stolen identity stories, she noted the Social Security Administration keeps the money and doesn’t notify employers. The new world has individuals owning for to five passports.
The brains of the world are going to Canada and New Zealand. One cannot enter Canada even with a DUI on the record. U.S. workers are not so interested in agriculture and labor. Colorado is the third largest producer of sheep. Mining engineering is a hot opportunity here as well. The solution to tracking individuals and enforcing the law is best if employer-based. She is a supporter of Arrupe High School in Denver and teaches immigration law there once per year.
