H-1B CAP COUNT: 32,500

Rate this Entry

by Chris Musillo

The USCIS has just updated the H-1B Cap Count. The latest H-1B usage numbers are listed in the chart below. MU Law is also listing its estimated dates when the H-1B cap will be reached for each category. We will regularly update the projection.

H-1B Cap Count
Cap Type Available Received Updated MU Projection
Regular 65,000 32,500 5/4/2012 6/1/2012
US Masters 20,000 13,700 5/4/2012 5/20/2012


Many healthcare professions ordinarily qualify for H-1B status, includingPhysical Therapists, Occupational Therapists, Speech Language Therapists, and some Registered Nursing positions.

International workers who are working in the U.S. on an H-1B visa with another cap-subject employer are not subject to H-1B cap. These cases are commonly referred to as "H-1B transfer" cases and may be filed at any time throughout the year.

Employees that need a "cap-subject" H-1B 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

    1) Ron Paul by a mile if he announces. He would be asolmt as polarizing as Palin, yet at the same time is a man with gravitas, unlike Palin, a man of accomplishment who commands respect. Attacking a key element of Jewish power, the Federal Reserve, has been a huge part of his life's work. He also opposes overseas wars for Israel. Paul's positions are also culturally conservative enough that he would fire up redstate American asolmt as much as Palin. Paul also has all the right enemies: the entire anti-racist left, the libertarian left represented by that filthy scum and ex-CATO hack Brink Lindsey, the neocons, the military industrial complex, the establishment GOP and wall street. Ron Ron Paul is in fact a threat to so many elements of the American establishment and power structure it's hard to see him getting anywhere near power. With a populist Republican Congress at his disposal, Paul could really shake things up, and anything is better than the status quo.If Paul runs and wins a few primaries, I'll go on record right now that Jews will have Bloomberg, Petraeus or someone else run as a third party candidate to dilute the vote. If Paul doesn't run, then I'd say Palin is the best choice for all the reasons HW has clearly given.2) A very tough but important question. Gun rights, free speech defense and crime are probably the most important, I'd say. Only free speech is a national issue. Gun laws comes up at the state and local level often, however, so there would be opportunities for networking and covert activism there. And crime is always a good local topic when you live in a place with a lot of it as I do. Articles on gun rights might draw some hard-right conservatives to this sire, and a few might be open to a moderated version of WN like OD is offering.
