you are right, but the way they handle existing H1b is kind of scary. It is not only restrict new h1b, they are too hard on existing h1b whoever tend to renew. Before H1 they were rejecting L1 left right center, now turned their focusing on H1 and H4. Who knows next they may turn to GC processing and screw as much as possible.

Day by day it is getting ugly and we end up treated like illegals or worst than illegal.

Indirectly this is putting lot of pressure on employers too, now no one wants h1b even if the position is available for multiple months (I see that in my comp). It has become too risky to use h1b resource as they come with high indirect cost (Lawyer, documentation, Visa etc...).

Therefore effective H1B population will be on the decline in future.

Once the current backlog of EBs gets cleared over the next 10 years or so, the pressure on EB quota will reduce.
221 (g) for H1B is becoming like "catch-all " 221(b) of visitor (B1/B2) visa.

Eb2 has already become harder for IT side as they question whether the job needs Masters. Earlier EB2 used to relatively east. They stopped the labor substitution.

But there is one fundamental difference. GC is typically processed inside USA and therefore every decision can be appleased but H1B visa stamping is handled at
consulate (outside US) and cannot be appealed.

Therefore random rejection like 221(g) without any legal backing/logic in case of GC processing is
harder.

Actually they are racheting up the pressure on illegals as well by issuing mass no match SSN letters.

This is a result of "failed and foolish" startegy of Obama...pressure the illegals/legals to extract backing of business and GOP for CIR.

True its getting very difficult, especially for consulting companies to prove the multi-level relationship and this also applies to H4s. Maybe its also a sign of the new congress, Senate showing its increased enforcement. Even with the F1s, OPT, ...

Hello ,

I think switching employer could be a good way to go if anybody has a choice because for me still wating for USCIS to give decision almost more then 9+ months waiting and part from my kids. its terrible...

Again getting approval from switching employers dont know how much time this will take. but still i feel if I have switched employer could be better ....

Also i read form in these case time is alwasy big read form nobody came out of this in less then 10+ months if lucky you got ur reaffirm.

I am still waiting from USCIS hoping this month will be last month for waiting and will get my approval. All the best

Hi Ravi! I hope your tough time is over. I am going through same phase for last 8+ months. The only difference is my wife has never come to USA before.
Please share progress of your case. Thanks!
