    After about 13,000 H-1B petitions were claimed in the first week of this year's cap season, USCIS is reporting only about 3,000 additional visas were claimed in April. At that pace, the 65,000 would not be reached this year. However, we can expect a pick up in filings later in the year as the economy continues to mend and graduates of US institutions going in to professions requiring licenses start filing cases.

    by , 05-04-2010 at 12:26 PM (Greg Siskind on Immigration Law and Policy) reports that the American Bar Association is being pressured to move a conference in Phoenix scheduled for next week after its co-sponsor for the event, the National Legal Aid & Defender Association, announced it was pulling out of the event. Other groups that planned to send representatives, like the City Bar Justice Center in New York, called for the conference location to be moved. A number of speakers at the event have also announced they will not attend. also reports that Alpha Phi Alpha, the national black fraternity, announced plans to move its annual conference in July from Phoenix to Las Vegas.

    The Washington Post's Michael Gerson does a good job explaining that the changes to the Arizona law help in some respects, but make the situation worse in others.
