There has been a substantial increase in denial of H-1B visa petitions of Indians by the US Immigration authority as compared to people of other nationalities, according to a report by an American non-profit body. Also, Indian applicants received the most number of Request for Evidence for applications than the people from other countries, said the National Foundation for American Policy report, compiled on the basis of the information received from the US Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS).

American Immigration Lawyers Association files lawsuit against US Citizens and Immigration Services over H-1B visa 18.6.2018 DNA: Recent Columns
The American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) has filed a lawsuit against the United States Citizens and Immigration Services (USCIS) over increased scrutiny and denials of H-1B petitions, The Times of India reported Monday. According to the report, AILA is concerned that the USCIS has changed its method of adjudicating standards in accepting visas, which has resulted in an increase in rejected H-1B visa applications. Observing this, the body – a voluntary one comprising 15,000 immigration lawyers and academicians – filed two requests seeking documents (especially on wage and speciality occupation determination), which would explain these actions. USCIS failed to respond, which led to AILA now filing a lawsuit in the Columbia District Court, the report added.  In 2016 technology professionals from India accounted for 74.2 % of the total number of H-1B visas issued by the US and the next year the figure increased to 75.6 %, a government report said here today.
