USCIS Still Can't Get H-1B Numbers Straight

Rate this Entry

When David Rubman pinned USCIS down on how many H-1Bs were being issued each year and learned that they were dramatically undercounting, the appropriate next step would be for USCIS to figure out why this has been happening and explain what they will do to ensure it doesn't continue to happen. Instead they've responded by just issuing new numbers which don't make a lot of sense. I understand USCIS is now including amendments in their data which are completely irrelevant and will skew the approval data to make it sound like the approval rate is a lot higher than it is.


Here is David's latest correspondence with USCIS.

    Seems like the USCIS needs a good Indian SQL analyst. I have a few in mind ;-)

    Oh my. They desperately need Mr Kirit Amin to pull out a theory about how a SQL table got moved to another disc to optimise the database.

    This is not a rhetorical question. Believe me, I am genuinely curious.

    How can a first world govt agency be so messed up? How can they simply not *count* how many cases they have processed?

    The reason behind this question is that I grew up in a 3rd world country and grew up to expect that govt is both corrupt and incompetent. I never could have imagines that a first world govt entity could not do something as simple as counting the number of H1 visa or the number of 485 issued in a year

    I work for a large "first world" corporation. There is a bunch of things we can't count ourselves. In fact, a very small minority in this company can count, period.
