Last week, the USCIS was met with another Federal lawsuit claiming that they are failing to properly follow the law when adjudicating H-1b cases filed on behalf of market research analysts. A successful outcome could provide assistance for others; such as business analysts, systems analysts, telcom, and finance occupations where the USCIS has questioned whether they meet the specialty occupation standards. This lawsuit was backed by the American Immigration Council and more information can be found here.
On the first day of cap filing season, the American Immigration Council released a report detailing the economic impact of H-1b employees. Interesting study containing facts. Maybe someone can pass a copy of this along to Senator Grassley.
