  • Article: DHS’s Proposed Registration Requirement for H-1B Petitions and Its Potential Adverse Impact on U.S. Employers and Prospective H-1B Employees By Xiaojie Meng, Alex Kim

    DHS’s Proposed Registration Requirement for H-1B Petitions and Its Potential Adverse Impact on U.S. Employers and Prospective H-1B Employees by Xiaojie (Marta) Meng, Alex Kim On December 3, 2018, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) published a proposed regulation in the Federal Register that would impose an internet-based registration requirement for cap subject H-1B petitions. Although the proposed rule is well-intentioned, aiming to reduce the cost, paperwork burden, and complexity of participation in the H-1B program, some commenters have observed that it does not conform to the statutory requirements for the H-1B program. [1] Moreover, the proposed rule contains serious shortcomings likely to jeopardize the interests of U.S. employers and prospective H-1B employees by causing postponements and delays in the filing and adjudication of cases and creating confusion regarding the application of the “cap-gap” extension . While we are not opposed per se to the introduction of a registration requirement for H-1B petitions, the issues of protracted delay and cap-gap applicability must be addressed in order to avoid causing serious detriment to employers and employees participating in the H-1B program. Therefore, we respectfully and strongly urge USCIS to hold off on implementing the proposed registration requirement until a thorough test and evaluation has been conducted and the aforementioned issues have been resolved. A. DHS is Proposing Amendments to Introduce an Electronic Registration Requirement for H-1B Petitions and to Change the Order in Which Petitions Eligible for the Advanced Degree Exemption Are Selected The Department of Homeland Security (“DHS”) is proposing to introduce a new H-1B registration process that would require petitioners seeking to file H-1B cap-subject petitions, including both regular cap petitions and petitions asserting eligibility for the advanced degree exemption, to first electronically register with USCIS during a designated registration period prior to the date that petitions could be filed. Petitioners would be asked to provide basic information regarding the petitioner and beneficiary, including the employer’s name, employer identification number, mailing address, beneficiary’s name, country of citizenship, passport number, and whether the beneficiary has obtained a master’s or higher degree from a U.S. institution of higher education. Once USCIS has received the number of electronic registrations needed to reach the H-1B regular cap limit, USCIS would close the registration period and randomly select the registrations to fill the regular H-1B cap. H-1B cap-subject petitions would only be filed on behalf of beneficiaries whose registrations were selected by USCIS. Unselected registrations would remain on reserve in the system for the applicable fiscal year. DHS is also proposing to change the order by which USCIS selects H-1B petitions for the regular cap and advanced degree exemption. Under the current system, petitions eligible for the advanced degree exemption are selected first, and regular cap petitions are then selected afterwards. DHS’s proposed amendments would reverse the order of selection. USCIS would select all registrations needed to meet the 65,000 regular cap limit first, then select registrations that are eligible for the 20,000 advanced degree exemption limit next. Changing the order of selection in this way will...

  • Expanded List of STEM Eligible Degrees Announced by Sheela Murthy et al.

    Expanded List of STEM Eligible Degrees Announced by Sheela Murthy et al. The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) recently expanded the list of approved degree programs that are eligible for the 17-month Optional Practical Training (OPT) extensions. The ICE announcement is available online. Background: Basics of STEM Extensions In April 2008, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) created a new program allowing certain students to obtain extensions of the standard 12-month OPT period. Under the new provisions, students completing designated science, technology, engineering, or math (STEM) programs become eligible for a 17-month OPT extension. OPT is normally authorized for a maximum of 12 months after completion of a post-secondary degree program. Graduates of STEM-approved degree programs can file for an additional 17 months, for a total OPT period of 29 months. According to ICE guidance, each student is eligible for only one 17-month STEM extension. To implement the new program, ICE created a list of degree programs qualified for the extended OPT period. The original STEM degree list was expanded on May 12, 2011. The new list of expanded STEM degree programs is available online. New Computer and Engineering Degrees Added The updated list of eligible STEM degrees includes a number of new computer and engineering degrees. Many of these degrees are designated with the term "other." This is a catch-all designation within various fields of study to include programs that would not fit within any of the more specific designations. These degrees are: Computer and Information Sc...

  • Article: As One ‘Tent City’ for Immigrant Children Closes in Texas, Another Opens in Florida By Ericka Cruz for Immigration Impact
    ImmigrationDaily
    As One ‘Tent City’ for Immigrant Children Closes in Texas, Another Opens in Florida by Ericka Cruz for Immigration Impact Earlier this month, the Trump administration officially closed the doors of a “tent city” holding over 2,800 immigrant children in Tornillo, Texas. The closure comes after months of public pressure and local organizing. However, any celebration is short-lived. Just days after Tornillo’s closure, the administration announced its plan to increase bed space in another juvenile tent city in Homestead, Florida. The tent city of Tornillo, about 35 miles from El Paso, Texas opened in November 2016. It later became a major point of controversy when it started being used to house an influx of unaccompanied minors and children who had been separated from their parents in the summer of 2018. Since it opened, the Tornillo tent city experienced major pushback from the local community due to its military barracks-style conditions, as well as its limited access to medical and mental health care and educational opportunities for the children detained there . Because Tornillo—and now Homestead—are classified as “emergency” or “influx” shelters, they skirt state child welfare guidelines. Although these sites are deemed “temporary,” the trauma and pain that the children suffer within these facilities is permanent. In “emergency” detention facilities, there are lower standards for staff vetting, training, youth education, and health, as they follow only a loose set of Health and Human Services guidelines. Despite Tornillo closing, the administration announced they expect to almost double their capacity at the Homestead, Florida facility from 1,350 children to 2,350 . Tax payers can be expected to pay a great deal to fund Homestead, as was the case with the Tornillo facility. The Texas site cost taxpayers approximately $144 million, amounting to about $400 per day to detain a child. Given the documented high cost of running Tornillo, the Homestead facility will be another costly bill for the American public. The recent e...
