AILA Doc. No. 19010300 | Dated January 2, 2019 | File Size: 765 KDownload the Document
On January 2, 2019, AILA submitted comments in response to a proposed regulation that would require petitioners seeking to file H-1B cap petitions to register electronically with USCIS and would reverse the order by which the agency selects H-1B petitions under the H-1B cap and advanced degree exemption. Among other things, AILA urged USCIS to suspend implementation of the H-1B registration process until at least the FY2021 H-1B cap season or until such time that a comprehensive, completely functional system that has been thoroughly beta-tested can be rolled-out. AILA also asked USCIS to immediately make an announcement to this effect, to provide U.S. employers with adequate clarity and assurances regarding the process that will commence in only a few short months.
