USCIS policy changes raise H-1B petition denials considerably

A Freedom of Information Act lawsuit brought forward by the American Immigration Lawyers Association has revealed documents that detail how the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services has raised the denial rates for H-1B petitions. Indiana companies that are seeking an H-1B visa for prospective foreign employees now face a much higher rate of rejection compared to a few years ago. In 2015, USCIS adjudicators denied 6% of these visa applications. During the first quarter of fiscal year 2019, the denial rate had jumped to 32%.

Does your extraordinary ability qualify you for an EB-1 visa?

If it has been your goal to come to the U.S., you may have begun your quest years ago by obtaining special skills or education that would qualify you for an employment visa. Employment visas allow you to live and work in the U.S. for a certain period of time, enjoying many of the benefits of permanent residency.

Recently, new policies have made it easier for some undocumented immigrants to be removed from the country without a hearing before a judge.
