The H-1B visa lottery system is under increasing attack for lack of transparency and even violation of existing laws governing it: following the lawsuit last month by two business immigration groups which wanted the US government to produce documents showing how the visa distribution process works, now two private firms have filed a lawsuit in Oregon because their candidates they were sponsoring failed to get visa.

https://t.co/atoDgEhlYP A lawsuit to abolish the H-1B lottery system has been filed, seeking the right to resubmit rejected petitions in exchange for a place in line. Random selection is not authorized by law.

I’m going to explain how the immigration service has been unlawfully revoking the approval of petitions for nearly a quarter of a century. The impact of this unauthorized action on hopeful immigrants has been terrible, resulting in many thousands losing their place in the queue after having waited many years, and having to move to the back of a line in some cases decades long. To understand how this has happened, you’ll need to unde...

I'm going to explain exactly how the government wastes on average tens of thousands of immigrant visas every year, contrary to Congressional intent, systematically compromising the workforce and keeping families apart.  Every number in this report represents a green card which could have been issued to a waiting immigrant, but was not handed out due to government mismanagement and ineptitude.  This loss of numbers impacts the very lives...

Today the Supreme Court upheld the denial of the DAPA program in a split, 4 to 4 tie decision, issuing only a one sentence ruling, "The judgment is affirmed by an equally divided Court." That means that DAPA (and also expanded DACA) will not go into effect. The current DACA program remains unaffected, however, and will continue. With the nation's highest court ruling effectively that DAPA cannot proceed, it is now time for the admi...

Thousands of immigrants go through the Lumpkin, Ga., immigration court yearly. More than 97 percent of them lose and are deported. NPR follows the case of one man whose lawyer thinks he has a shot at winning.

The H-1B Lottery is illegal. This blog post discusses how the immigration agency has violated the law in entering H-1B petitions in a random lottery process.

Tweet #visagate2015 "Go ask your mother," is what Department of State has said to aspiring immigrants, referring them to USCIS to see whether the November visa bulletin will be honored or not.  This is an embarassing slap in the face to the immigration agency, and exposes infighting and lack of communication between the two agencies responsible for managing the legal immigration process.   On Friday October 9, 2015, the State Depa...

While the visa bulletin fakeout has been a major focus on everyone's attention, let's not forget that the same mismanagement resulted in the waste of hundreds of thousands of visas that could have been used over past years.  Those visas are lost forever, and without special legislation will stay that way. The wasted visas are the reason the backlogs are so bad in the first place.  While desperate immigrants scramble for a few thousand ...
