  1. H-1B TELECONFERENCE FEB 12

    by , 01-22-2014 at 08:53 AM (Chris Musillo on Nurse and Allied Health Immigration)
    by Chris Musillo

    In anticipation of the H-1B cap filing date of April 1, 2014, MU Law will be holding a free teleconference for our clients on February 12, 2014 at 2PM / 11AM PT. Interested clients should email MU’s Lauren Gramke, who can register you for the teleconference.

    Last year the H-1B cap was reached in the first week; we expect that the demand will be greater this year. It is imperative that all H-1B cap-subject Petitions are filled on April 1, 2014 in order to insure that the H-1B Petition qualifies under this year’s H-1B cap.

    H-1B cap-subject petitions include:

    * International students working on an EAD card under an OPT or CPT program after having attended a U.S. school

    * International employees working on a TN may need an H-1B filed for them in order for them to pursue a permanent residency (green card) case

    * Prospective international employees in another visa status e.g. H-4, L-2, J-1, F-1

    * H-1B workers with a cap exempt organization

    * Prospective international employees currently living abroad

    In addition to the H-1B cap discussion, MU lawyers will also provide an employment-based immigration legislation update.

  3. THE DEATH OF S.744

    by , 01-16-2014 at 10:02 AM (Chris Musillo on Nurse and Allied Health Immigration)

    by Chris Musillo


    The internet is abuzz with reports that John Boehner and the House Republicans are in the process of drafting their “principles of immigration reform.” A document that purports to outline the GOP’s position on all facets of the immigration debate: border security, legalization of the undocumented, modernization of quotas and caps, enforcement, and employment verification.

    The release of the “principles” is the eulogy for last summer’s Senate Comprehensive Immigration Reform bill, Senate Bill 744. That bill was the result of brokering by Senate leadership from both Republicans and Democrats. Despite the bipartisan nature of the bill it never was seriously considered by the House – mainly because conservative and tea party House members thought that S.744 was too lenient on punishment for the undocumented. The Senate Bill called for a minimum of 13 years before citizenship.

    Conservative Republicans other problem with S.77 was they wanted a secure southern border before any material legalization program. It seems that fully securing the 2,000 southern border is an impossibility without a massive expenditure.

    House Maj. Leader Boehner (R-OH) is expected to release the “principles of immigration reform” in advance of the President’s January 28, 2014 State of the Union address. These two issues – security on the southern border and legalization -- are the key ones to look for in the Republicans “principles of immigration reform” release. If the GOP really wants immigration reform in 2014 these two issues will be raised in a way that allows for a compromise with Democrats. On the other hand if the “principles of immigration reform” contains unrealistic security aims and onerous legalization pathways, then prospects of immigration reform in 2014 will suffer the same fate as S.744.

  4. 2014 NPTE EXAM DATES

    by Chris Musillo

    Keep in mind that the FSBPT uses a fixed-date testing process. The FSBPT approach is different than other healthcare occupation's examination processes, which allows for rolling testing dates. FSBPT believes that their fixed-date testing system provides the most secure exam for their industry.


    Be sure to register well in advance in order to insure that your seat is reserved.

  5. FEBRUARY 2014 VISA BULLETIN

    by , 01-09-2014 at 09:37 AM (Chris Musillo on Nurse and Allied Health Immigration)
    by Chris Musillo

    The Department of State has just released the February 2013 Visa Bulletin. This is the fifthVisa Bulletin of the 2014 US Fiscal Year, which began on October 1, 2013.

    The All Other Countries EB-3 date jumped yet again. It has now moved almost two years in the last few Visa Bulletins.

    The Chinese EB-2 and EB-3 continued to be flipped: the Chinese EB-2 is worse than the Chinese EB-3, which means that Chinese EB-3s are processing faster than Chinese EB-2s. Chinese nationals who are EB-2 may be able to file an EB-3. Chinese EB-3s should check with their attorneys to effect this change.

    Unfortunately India EB-2 and India EB-3 remained stuck. India EB-2 and EB-3 have not moved in several months.

    The Philippine EB-3 did advance another 8 weeks. This is the second notable movement for Philippine EB-3 in the last two Visa Bulletins.


    Here is this month's complete chart:
