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.
