DHS Announces Release of New H-1b Rule

As promised, the DHS today announced the release of new rules designed to severely restrict the H-1b visa. The press release reads like a campaign commercial (and is filled with blatant falsehoods) and given recent Federal Court decisions which have been striking down Federal Regulations for being issued without legal authority and for failure to follow the APA (Federal law for issuing new regulations) this new regulation may prove to be nothing more than an expensive campaign statement, at taxpayer expense. The content of the new rules will be published in the Federal Register on Oct. 7th. The new regulations, unless blocked by a Federal Court will take effect in 60 days.
