USCIS Takes Another One to the Chin !

In a series of recent Federal Court decisions, rulings have been issued declaring that the USCIS at the direction of the Trump Administration have been illegally denying H-1b visas on grounds that have no legal or factual basis. A nice summary of these cases can be found in this recent Forbes article. The article, written by immigration policy expert, Stuart Andreson from NFAP, contains links to the actual cases if you want to read the full opinions. With Federal Court adverse decisions coming from multiple courts with a mix of Republican appointed and Democrat appointed judges and with no reversals from any Federal Appellate Court, one has to wonder at what point the USCIS gets tired of being punched in the mouth and throws in the towel and returns to actually following the law as it is written ? (maybe only Stephen Miller can answer that question ?) These cases were all brought by Heavyweight Champ Jonathan Wasden. Kudos to him and his firm. Litigators extraordinaire !
