  1. VISA BULLETIN PREDICTIONS FOR SUMMER 2014

    by , 04-28-2014 at 04:42 PM (Chris Musillo on Nurse and Allied Health Immigration)
    by Chris Musillo

    Every few months Charlie Oppenheim of the Department of State discusses predictions for future Visa Bulletins. MU Law has spoken with Mr. Oppenheim several times in the past and have always found that his projections are well thought out and very accurate.


    Here are his projections for a recent conversation with AILA:


    • India EB-2: before the end of the summer India EB-2 will be into 2008.
    • Worldwide EB-2: no major changes.
    • Worldwide EB-3, including Philippines: as happens every summer, EB-3 may retrogress and even become unavailable until the new fiscal year that starts October 1, 2014.
    • China EB-3: demand has been steady since the China EB-2 and China EB-3 dates flip-flopped. China EB-3 may retrogress his summer.
    • National Visa Center: the NVC is now sending out Fee Bills 8-12 months in advance of the expected priority date becoming current. Previously, the NVC had been sending out the Fee Bills 12-18 months in advance.

  2. 500,000 UNFILLED RN JOBS BY 2022

    The Occupational Outlook Handbook (OOH) is a treasure trove of data. Government agencies, politicians, and employers use this data to analyze and assess trends in US employment. The 2014 edition of the OOH shows that job openings in nursing is expected to outpace almost all other occupations. In fact, healthcare occupations in fields like Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Audiologists, and Home Health dominate the list of fastest-growing occupations.

    Traditionally, America has been welcoming to immigrants in occupational zones that Americans have been unwilling to fill. Whether Congress recognizes this fact and improves the pathway for these workers to come to the US is still an open question.

    Organizations such as FWD.us and the Partnership for a New American Economy are working exceptionally hard to convince legislators of the potential gains to the US economy by strategic immigration policy. One of their recent projects has been to show the impact of immigration on a state by state basis, called Map The Impact. Map The Impact allows users to see the local impact on restrictive immigration.

    For instance, we can learn that there will be 60,000 open nursing positions in Florida alone by the end of the decade. There will be another 10,000 open positions in the small state of New Mexico.

    There have been some recent indications that the Republicanís animosity to immigration reform may be thawing. Republicans such as likely Presidential candidate Jeb Bush and Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake have recently spoke positively of immigration reform. For Americaís sake, letís hope others are listening.

  3. USCIS CONFIRMS THAT H-1B PPS WILL NOT START UNTIL 4/28

    by , 04-21-2014 at 02:33 PM (Chris Musillo on Nurse and Allied Health Immigration)
    by Chris Musillo

    U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) confirmed that they will begin premium processing for H-1B petitions subject to the fiscal year 2015 cap on April 28, 2014. USCIS first announced that they would begin premium processing for H-1B cap cases no later than April 28 in a news release on March 25. This latest news release confirms the April 28, 2104 date.

  4. PBS SEGMENT ON PHILIPPINE RNs

    by , 04-16-2014 at 09:32 AM (Chris Musillo on Nurse and Allied Health Immigration)
    by Chris Musillo

    The American public newscaster, PBS, recently broadcast a piece on the migration of nurses to the US. The segment focused on the H-1B nursing scheme that resulted in a guilty verdict in 2013. The scheme was deplorable and the guilty verdict was warranted based on the facts of the case.

    The PBS video focusses on the worst recruiters and the worst abusers of the system. It also misses a big point Ė if the US visa system allowed for nurses to enter the US in a reasonable amount of time then these poachers would not be able to use scam tactics to attract desperate nurses.

    Ethical codes are one good measure. Codes like the one used by the AAIHR insure fairness to all stakeholders in the system: nurses, recruiters, facilities, and patients. If you are a nurse seeking to come to the US, MU Law suggests that you dutifully research the practices of your recruiter. Make sure that they are acting in an ethical fair manner.

    The good news: many of the nurses highlighted in the segment had great results and are now fulfilling their American dream.

  5. USCIS RECEIVED 172,500 H-1Bs

    by , 04-11-2014 at 09:08 AM (Chris Musillo on Nurse and Allied Health Immigration)
    by Chris Musillo

    The USCIS has just announced that it received 172,500 H-1B cap-subject petitions for this yearís H-1B cap. The H-1B cap is 85,000, of which 20,000 are reserved for graduates of US Masters Programs. Essentially the USCIS received 200% of the H-1B cap allocation. Put another way, only 50% of the H-1B petitions will be accepted under the H-1B lottery.

    The USCIS has inputted all 172,500 and processed the H-1B lottery for both the H-1B masters cap and the H-1B regular cap. The USCIS has not yet announced when it will notify H-1B lottery winners and losers, although the Premium Process Service petitions should start being notified by April 28.

    A higher percentage of masters cap H-1B petitions are accepted than H-1B regular cap petitions because H-1B master cap petitions that do not win the H-1B masters lottery are re-submitted into the H-1B regular cap lottery.

    As soon as MU Law begins receiving confirmation of H-1B lottery winner and losers will immediate contact our clients.
