    This isn't remotely anti-immigrant. Expedited processing was akin to essentially bribing the Gov to do a fast track review of your potential employee at a really cheap rate. A quality H1Ber supposedly makes the same as a native.

    Why We Are Temporarily Suspending Premium Processing for H-1B Petitions


    This temporary suspension will help us to reduce overall H-1B processing times. By temporarily suspending premium processing, we will be able to:
    • Process long-pending petitions, which we have currently been unable to process due to the high volume of incoming petitions and the significant surge in premium processing requests over the past few years; and
    • Prioritize adjudication of H-1B extension of status cases that are nearing the 240 day mark.

    So basically high level corporate interests who want cheap labor have their own special program for getting their workers and ****ing Americans over instead of using the same one as everyone else.

    I agree. The program is good in theory but the companies are just using it for low cost labor.

    If it's the only choice you have, yes.

    Yes.
    H1 is basically pimping. Get the individual, then point a gun at such individual to have him/her do a job.
