AUGUST 2013 VISA BULLETIN


The Department of State has just released the August 2013 Visa Bulletin.   There has been a dramatic jump for India EB2.  MU Law expected that an India EB2 progression would happen, although it took a lot longer than we expected.  Suffice it to say, had it happened earlier in the year, today's  jump would not have been as dramatic.  Nevertheless, the India EB2 jump is welcome news.

Unfortunately, no other category moved more than a few weeks and most employment-based categories did not move at all.

SIA ARTICLE: BENEFIT OF COUNSEL

by Chris Musillo

MU Law's Chris Musillo was asked to author an article for Staffing Industry Analysts.  SIA has published an article in SIA's July issue of SI Review.   An internet copy of the article appears on the SIA webpage.

In the article Chris discusses the Comprehensive Immigration Reform debate and what may happen if CIR is passed.  Chris concludes:

Contingent labor and staffing companies have traditionally been large users of foreign-trained employees. These employees have proven to be beneficial for employers and American society as a whole. It is incumbent on the industry to make sure that Congress hears this story or else misperceptions, and not realities, will drive future legislation and regulation.
