Employers' chances of attracting and retaining global talent just got worse.  USCIS has received 233,000 filings for only 85,000 H-1B slots this entire year, all received within a 5 day window.  With close to three times more cases filed than Congress allows, chances of obtaining an H-1B work visa this year are about 1 in 3.  That means that a majority of those international students who obtain U.S. degrees and a job offer will have to ...

A challenge by the Republican Governor of the State of Mississippi and some agents of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to the DACA program was dismissed by the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals in a decision filed today.  The Fifth Circuit ruled that the lawsuit could not prove injury to either Mississippi or ICE by implementation of the DACA program, and that it had to be dismissed because federal courts lack jurisdiction to hear...

Following President Obama's November 20 announcement on executive improvements to the immigration system, a regulation has been issued to allow work permit applications for H-4 spouses who are married to H-1B workers who have taken steps to become permanent residents. When does the rule take effect?  May 26, 2015 is the earliest that an application can be submitted.  Applications filed before that date will not be accepted. Who ca...

The Dept. of Justice filed an emergency expedited motion to stop Texas federal judge Hanen's decision to block implementation of DAPA and expanded DACA today.  The DOJ filed an appeal with the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals (the court above the Texas federal judge), and filed a motion with the Texas federal judge to put the block of the DAPA/expanded DACA programs on hold.  In other words, the federal government requested that USCIS b...

Despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary, a vocal group of advocates insists that the United States does not face a shortage of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) workers. The advocates argue incorrectly that high-skilled immigration is not only unnecessary but is ...

Today the Administrative Appeals Office (AAO) of the USCIS ruled in a published opinion that employers must file amended I-129 petitions for H-1B workers who move or add worksite locations, overturning an earlier policy of permitting just a Labor Condition Application (LCA) to be certified and posted in the new location before the employee started work there.  This new decision, Matter of SIMEIO Solutions LLC, 26 I&N Dec. 542 (AAO 2015)...

The bill will not target President Obama's executive actions on immigration, which could disappoint many conservatives.

A Texas judge ordered a temporary hold on Deferred Action for Parents of Americans (DAPA), and the Feds have appealed, but is DAPA the only way to enact smart enforcement?  Arguably, the White House has another potential option to defer deportation and grant work permission for low priority undocumented immigrants - a Turn Self In for Deportation program. How would that work?  The answer lies in the laws that Congress passed in 1996...

DAPA blocked, but alternatives available
On President's Day, February 16, 2015, federal judge Andrew S. Hanen issued a temporary Order in favor of the State of Texas, temporarily blocking the DAPA program and also blocking the expansion of DACA.   What this means: For now, the judge's order blocks USCIS from "implementing any and all aspects or phases" of both the DAPA program, set to go into place by May 18, 2015, and also the expansion of the DACA program, which was set t...
