2017 H-1B Cap Denials

There is nothing that stresses me out more than seeing that dreaded “Decision” in my inbox stating that a case has been denied. I believe in every case that comes across my desk and denials really incense me. This year, the IT community has seen the worse of it from what I can tell. More than ever, positions are being questioned as to their “specialty occupation” status. Positions that have been readily approved in the past. I do not know if Immigration realizes that denying these positions is not going to open up more jobs for American workers, but instead, it will leave a shortage within the industry and probably lead to more outsourcing. It really is ludicrous to me that these incredibly complex positions that most certainly demand at a minimum a Bachelor’s Degree in computer/technology related fields are being essentially phased out of the H-1B program.
