In a letter, the chief minister urged the prime minister to direct the Indian embassy in Iran to take all measures to ensure immediate repatriation of the fishermen. “I write to bring to your direct attention, the plight of 21 fishermen from Tamil Nadu, who are reportedly stranded in Iran. They are neither allowed to return to India nor allowed to continue fishing for which they were engaged as contract fishing labourers,” Palaniswami said.

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. However, there has been a drop in the ...
