Donald Trump has already created jobs and he's still 2 months from taking office.
Immigration lawyers have been bombarded with frantic calls from clients who are afraid if they wait to get their visa applications approved they'll be stranded in their homeland or deported from the U.S.
Attorneys say they are not comforting clients because they have reason to believe the Trump Administration will immediately crack down on visa applications and extensions. As a result, they're trying to ramrod paperwork through the system before year's end.
We're told the applicants who are most nervous are the ones who started the process and were told it would take months to complete. These clients, we're told, are panicking. Most have paid half the legal fee and are offering to pay the full balance immediately for a fast finish.
