H-1B CAP IN FINAL DAYS

Rate this Entry

USCIS is reporting that 62,800 cases have been counted against the cap. Given the pace, this is probably the last week before the cap gets hit. Then employers will need to wait until April to file for October 1st start dates.

    With the GOP trying to move legislation denying birthright citizenship, dont count on it!

    With all these politics, the legal immigration reform is being held hostage. Dems want CIR, and won't even look at legal as it may have some chance of reform. This clearly shows their conviction. The reverse brain drain has already started since the last 3 to 4 years; and I am going to jump into that band-wagon as well. No point working in a country where u have no value; you pay taxes but are never represented, and stupid laws that gets you treated like 3rd class citizens.
    Thanks but No thanks.

    Conviction? About what? Not sure why you think Dems should put interests of current legal immigrants ahead of illegal immigrants or future legal immigrants. How does that serve American public?

    Immigration reform is done, just a couple sentences advocating for CIR & Dream Act. Obama cannot get this done, it's a fact. The Cans are senselessly pursuing anti immigrant policy further alienating the Hispanic voting bloc. It seems Obama could easily end up winning the reelection so CIR is done for the near future. During his second term he won't bother anymore even talking about immigration as he would be pursuing to establish his legacy which would include everything except immigration reform.

    My thinking is a bit different. I am not going to spend much time to explain why fixing legal immigration is necessary, when the President himself claims that we need to bolster science and innovation and spur creativity and startups, patents, etc. I am pretty sure you know the number of patents that come from Indians, chinese and other international students, either doing their MS or PhD's here in the US. further number of startups blah blah...research studies have shown the amount the US can gain by liberalizing legal immigration..(for every H1 tht is hired 5 american jobs open up- some study said this).. please get the point....
    it is like, I want a nice house, but don't want to pay and want it for free. Doesn't work that way my friend and that is precisely the reason the economy is still lagging since 2009.
    My suggestion: plz broaden the scope of thinking for such a complex problem as the economy and job growth. there is no simple formula to help this but a number of factors, some may or may not like it.
    Just my 2 cents!!

    SG, thanks for getting the message right. Any changes that you want need to be sold in the context of the current situation and goals of the government. Your case is good for future immigration (and probably for H1 increases), however, it is not great for EB increases for those who are stuck in the system - the US is getting plenty of benefit from them. The argument needs to be stronger. The other side is that Obama's speach was all about winning in the global economic war, and some people may take it as "us vs them". Immigration may actually be attacked under this premise of improving competitiveness (yeah, makes no sense, I know, but neither is half the things Tea party says).

    Typically American..otherwise we wont have the debt and deficit problems!

    "Doesn't work that way my friend and that is precisely the reason the economy is still lagging since 2009."

    Japan: no increase in skilled migration or educaiton spending..the result: 0% growth rate.

    The UK: cuts in education spending and caps on skilled migration...the result: nearing a double dip recession!

    The US: cuts in education spending but no increase in skilled migration: growth rate of around 3%.

    Australia and Canada: increase in education expenditures but not increase in skilled immigration: growth rate of around 4% expected.

    Singapore and Hong Kong: increase in education and spending and skilled immigration...a growth rate of 10% +.
