Currently, there is great tension in U.S. immigration laws. Unemployment is recovering with U.S. Citizens still out of work. Wages have not really climbed and savings for many U.S. citizens have been invaded by a thief in the night. We call that thief, economic circumstances. The recovering economy has also proved ruinous for foreign nationals.
Recently, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has reached the congressional mandated H-1B cap for fiscal year (FY) 2017. USCIS has also received more than the limit of 20,000 H-1B petitions filed under the U.S. advanced degree exemption. USCIS will use a computer-generated process, also known as the lottery, to randomly select the petitions.
