Immigration Predictions - 2022
Posted on : 01/10/2022
President Joe Biden took office last year with high expectations and major challenges to be addressed. The White House and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced several new policies to ease burdens and bottlenecks on the immigration system throughout 2021, overturning some of the more vicious and restrictive immigration policies introduced by previous administrations. We hope to see more improvements before 2022, but expect some challenges. 
USCIS and DOS delays to be expected
  USCIS balances have surged over the past two years, reaching more than 8 million pending cases by the end of fiscal 2021. With the closure of US embassies and consulates around the world in March 2020 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the issuance of permanent residency cards by the US State Department has resulted in a staggering balance of over 9 million copies.

The American Tech Workforce Act of 2021, proposed in the US House of Representatives, calls to end the Optional Practical Training (OPT) program as it mostly benefits big tech companies by providing tax breaks and allowing them to hire workers at a lower cost.
“Big Tech is setting aside some of the most lucrative and valuable career opportunities in America and giving them exclusively to foreign guest workers. They’re cutting out Americans to save a few bucks. It’s domestic outsourcing,” Banks said in a statement.“This shocking disregard for American workers and their role in our nation’s future is unpatriotic. We must fix Big Tech’s incentives, so they begin putting Americans first,” he added.The Bill proposes to set a wage floor for H-1B visas at the higher end of the annual wage paid to an American worker for that position, or $110,000, prioritising giving visas to employers who pay higher wages and limiting the ability of big tech firms to contract with third-party workers.
