Re: Donald Trump’s ‘no extension to H-1B visa’ proposal may affect thousands of Indian professionals

I spoke to some contacts at some large desi companies and they are all in a state of panic. They have been given marching orders to hire locally before the current batch of h1bs come up for extensions.
Only wage level 1 (entry level; since H-1B is a specialty occupation visa) and people not able to meet requirement of job are being rejected or being asked to provide evidence in support of application.

Following people in my observation got rejected:

1. recently completed Masters from US
2. Nursing degree or Pharma or some other degree which is non-STEM and working in IT

These got RFE (Request for evidence) notice:

1. Holding non-IT/Computer Engineering degree (like Chemical, Electrical, etc). Basically, asked to prove how degree relates to computer science. Some people were able to establish enough computer knowledge and experience to qualify.

The direction is to re-check before granting extension, as if they were applying for the first time.

No need to panic for people having more than 6-8 years of work experience in USA.
------------------------------------------------------------
Coming to the proposal no extension beyond 6-years.

1. Stupid India media jumped on a proposal, which to come to effect requires rule-making and law-making, this will take years.

Reason:
