Late last week, it was announced by the Senate that S. 386 is on hold and will not be brought up for consideration because it was assured to fail. Whether it will be revived before the fall 2020 election remains to be seen but, it is doubtful. It remains disturbing that Senator Durbin continues to allege that there are widespread abuses in the H-1b program. If there is major abuse in the program now, it is the USCIS that are the perpetrators. With a denial rate that has soared to 35% with no changes in the law, who is most apt to be ignoring the law and abusing the program ?
