Today USCIS announced that the cap for H1B 2014 was reached.  The USCIS also announced that the fate of all the applicants will depend on a selection also known as the “lottery”.  While we were all expecting such an event, it still baffles us when we see that the demand for H1B is higher than the supply.  H1B visas are for specialty occupations and if companies are willing to file for H1Bs and the quota is reached, it means the economy is doing better and there is a need to increase this quota.

We call on the Congress and President Obama not to ignore the legal immigrants especially the skilled workers in the immigration reform.  We remind them many of our biggest companies depend on H1B workers.
