Honest question....which are these companies in SV you taking about? I have changed 3 jobs in bay area and all of them were amazing to work with. My friends have had similar experience in bay area.

Topic: Goodlatte bill coming today - Any details ?

Sad but true....Democrats and most people would keep on shoving legal issues to the side stating that at least they have legal status and not in immediate danger of being deported. Remember the h1 extension fiasco until last week, as soon as people realized that H1 people may be in danger of getting deported all hell broke loose and news/support start pouring in from all sections.

For majority people and politicians us being in limbo for GC wait is not as big a issue as DACA deportation.

Yep. It becomes diffcicult to sign off on HR392 when you look at actual number of GC India would get. Too bad India has a big population but its not US problem. Thats how they are probably thinking.

Topic: H4 EAD Revocation rule

The potential litigation will not be because proper rules were not followed. It will be mostly because DHS might not give solid reasoning to rescind an existing rule. Just saying as part of "Buy American Hire American" we are revoking H4EAD is not enough and a weak argument.

Topic: Bipartisan 2-phase immigration deal - Not Good

HR392 was always a distant dream. Rather than wasting time fighting for 392 its better to pour resources to save H4EAD and put new effort to get I-140 EAD. I mean seriously we already have H4EAD which was big win for many when it happened. IV and many people argue that H4EAD is a symptom of bigger issue and I agree but you have to get real here. You are not gonna be able to get GC easily so take what you are getting and everyone needs to realize that legal immigrant community will always get short end of the stick.

Topic: DHS never considered AC21. IV is bogus

And if someone says that USCIS/DHS was lying then NO they wouldn't risk there integrity for such a issue. Besides USCIS knows it's easier to verify what they are saying by filing a FOIA.

Yep. Many people think here that salary requirement is impossible to implement but that is one area where I think there is enough bipartisan support. On the top that salary requirement would only be applicable to H1b dependent employers(>15%).

Topic: Breaking news from IV

Just read a sensible article on perchingtree again about this whole H1 extension issue that happened today. If anyone has got any doubt please read it below. If USCIS was actually considering it then it is easier to obtain that info through FOIA but USCIS is categorically denying it so I feel its safe to say they were never considering it and IV did spread a false rumor.

/******
Mcclatchydc reports that “Under pressure, Trump team backs off proposal to cull foreign tech workforce“, however the USCIS Spokesman denies that it ever considered such a proposal in the first place. Agency officials, specifically “Chief of Media” relations will rarely lie in public as all internal communications can be exposed using a simple Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request. Further, due to significant public interest exhibited by various senators in this case, all press releases of such type and it’s specific language are diligently vetted by agency legal counsel. Any contrary evidence under a FOIA request can lead to significant embarrassment for the agency. The language used by the USCIS official is what I call “strong and emphatic denial” that they ever considered rolling back H-1 B Extensions in the first place. They could not have made it more clear than this.

If agency’s public assertions are found to be false, usually heads will roll, specifically in the current political environment. Basis this, I would bet my money on the agency official’s assertion as the absolute truth as opposed to an unsubstantiated news source. Editors of established newspaper have a very stringent process of vetting sources, but, unfortunately the same standards may not apply to other media assertions.

In the below assertion in USCIS statement, “not considering” highlighted in red is ambiguous. “Not Considering” can be present tense or past perfect tense. This statement may indicate that USCIS may have been considering such a change in the past, but, is no longer considering it OR that, they were never considering it at all.

In this part of the denial, “USCIS was never considering such a policy change“, they make it crystal clear devoid of any ambiguity and mis-interpretation. The denial is emphatic, strong and forceful. “Absolutely False” is the last nail in the coffin and makes it a shut and close case. This whole issue seems like a text book case of media sensationalizing news based on unsubstantiated and unreliable news sources.

I do appreciate IV's effort for HR392 but they loose credibility while pulling such tactics. Given the current climate there is slim to no chance of HR392 getting passed. HR170 may get included.

Topic: Breaking news from IV

Everyone would be relieved that this is not going through. There is a big chance that IV did got this news (without them realizing) as part of controlled leak by USCIS/DHS. My complain is the way they conduct themselves and around issue such as this. After their breaking news post from today it completely looks like an act from movie.

No professional org would spread unconfirmed news like this and then few days later say that USCIS have backtracked and extensions are no longer in danger. This tactic would work in India but right now IV is portraying themselves as a complete irresponsible group who gets in a dog fight with anyone who questions them.

Right now it looks like IV poured imaginary water on a imaginary fire.

If DHS thought they could have executed the h1b extension plan then they would have and there is nothing IV could have done to stop them(other than litigations).

Neither you played any role to slow down H4EAD case nor this time for H1b extension rumor so stop fooling yourself and other members.

I did say this. Also posted a sane article that explained how this was probably a diversion tactic or controlled leak by someone from DHS.

Sorry I am on phone. I posted a long article from Peechingtree on January 3rd. Take a look at my post history. As I said in that post good info is getting lost here due to fear mongering and pessimism.

Topic: N0 HR392 in DACA Bill

I am not sure why IV keeps on bringing up "See we told you about H4EAD". I think most of us knew(at least people with open mind) that H4EAD was going down. Not just because previous admin created but also because it was easy to rollback due to being a rule.

On the other hand AC21 is a different pill altogether. I am a very pessimistic guy and I am not personally oppose to IV but I dont find there "extension can be stopped" explanation convincing. In all probablity I beleive the whole legal immigration thing is pretty much gonna go down as perchingtree has predicted.

Topic: H.R. 392, Fairness for High Skilled Immigrants Act

Probably means nothing. They all are raising the issue because Indian media carried the article. I firmly believe that US immigration is one of the areas where Indian media/officials are naive. Some people including me have posted links and article that explains how the AC21 news is mostly media overreaction but the thread is being completely overridden by fear mongering posts and good info is getting lost.

The longer a rule/law is in place the harder its difficult to revoke and change meaning because the businesses and communities rely on it (AC21 qualifies under 'Reliance Interest). DHS will have hard time explaining why suddenly after 17 years they re-interpreting the law and court very well ask in that case if it means that in last 17 years whatever extension they gave were they even valid. They can still deny extension based on that "may" term and coupled wigh wage level, specialty occupation, 3 year college degree etc but not blanket denials.

I can see that H1b is going to get very stringent as the admin has signaled many times that they only want best and the brightest and they have quiet a few ways of achieving that without mass deportation after 6 years(which also should help them avoid any litigations).

Worst case just have a backup.

Topic: H1b AC21 Cancellation: Trump's Nuclear option

Totally agree with what you are stating. I have posted that perchingtree article here along with some other member which clearly explains what can and cannot be done. Pasting some valid points from that article

/****
1. For those who do not have the patience to read the full post, here is a brief on the subject. The longer a law, rule or statute has been in precedence or existence, the more various parties will rely on it for business and economic reasons. Even the corollary is true. If non-enforcement of a particular statute, rule or law is in existence for a long period, courts can potentially strike down a sudden enforcement of dormant rules. When courts decide between fairness and powers of the state, they take “reliance interests” and “fairness” into significant consideration. The longer a statute, precedence or rule has been in existence in a particular way, there is more reliance on the status quo and much harder to change the status quo suddenly.

2.Suddenly revoking a precedent policy of extending H1B’s for those whose GC applications have been accepted is rife with major successful court challenges to the rule. Every other argument on this subject, specifically the ones that over-emphasize the “Shall Vs May“debate are only theoretical arguments. Try a “Shall Vs May” argument in court and you will see many poker faces.

3. Even the "discretion" argument is overblown. Discretion is case by case basis and not on a group or mass level. In this situation, unless the case has exceptions, the administration is routinely expected to issue extensions. If the administration can prove that predominantly, they have been issuing extensions and are only reviewing exceptional cases guided by other interconnected rules and policies, they can avoid any legal challenge while still making big changes.

4. There is a big possibility that various media leaks are purposeful controlled leaks by the administration to test responses and reactions all the while working on an alternate process strategy to achieve the original goal cited in the leaks. In military strategy, it is called diversion and in deception strategy, it is called sophisticated deception i.e. tell the truth in such a way that either people will not believe it or will react with shock and expose their strategy by overreaction. While opponents are busy with their overreaction/disregard and are over-consuming mental resources to the point of a cognitive shutdown, strategists will prepare for an alternative common sense strategies which the opponents missed due to the cognitive overload. Expecting the worst or ignoring the worst, the opponents will either suffer from “prediction failure” or become less resistant when the tactical implementation is more relaxed than originally espoused. Over time, by rapidly aggregating feedback from opponents and by tempering their expectations, the strategists can chart out a more successful and friction-less strategy.
***/

For the last point, I think this what is exactly happening. Most people are shocked and few are in disbelief and all have been talking in circles, proposing various ideas, speculating etc. I am also surprised with the timing of whole thing (not sure if its a diversion tactic to take focus away from any advocacy on H4EAD).

Just think about it guys whole thing started two weeks ago on a IV call when Fresca communicated this chatter going on in DHS. Few days later one new agency picks it up quoting sources from DHS and IV and rest of the media follows (mostly Indian media I guess). I am sure most people feel they are going to take away extensions but I think its more diversion technique and I am unsure of DHS intention.
