I told @qzindia where many of my H-1B clients are from: A system so overburdened, hampered by new policy meant to hobble instead of run must be reformed. That starts by starving the beast.

I've proudly served businesses in Northern Virginia and beyond to help them acquire H-1B visas and stay competitive. It can be hard to find qualified folks.

#H1B isn't perfect, but needs reform, not made unattainable.
That's exactly what the current administration is doing. And yes, it's for the same reason they tried to revoke #DACA, kill #TPS, sent troops to the border, and banned Muslims: they don't want people to come here.

The administration attacks legal immigration.
It's bad enough a bright graduate has to enter a lottery just to have an H-1B petition accepted (because demand far exceeds the supply). But once accepted, the US Citizenship & Immigration Services (USCIS) does its level best to find a way to deny the petition.
In 4Q 2017, nearly 69% of all H-1B petitions received additional Requests for Evidence (compared with 23% in 3Q 2017). Denial rates continue to soar. Our policies are putting a cap on intelligence, a cap on competition, and a cap on skill. That's no way to achieve prosperity.
The administration's "Buy American Hire American" initiative (which completely ignores that many H-1B holders are themselves aspiring Americans, and their employers are, by definition, American companies) means #H1B premium processing may mean nothing more than speedier denials.
