H-1B USAGE HINTS CAP MAY NOT BE HIT THIS YEAR
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.
