On Monday, December 3rd, 2018, the US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) published striking news that will reverberate through the homes of many Indian immigrants. In its published notice of proposed rulemaking, USCIS announced that it has submitted certain regulatory changes around H-1B petitions. These regulatory amendments could have a profound effect on the future of all H-1B petitions filed, as they intend to put in place a greater favorability in H-1B selection towards U.S. master’s degree holders, who are described as “more meritorious” than other beneficiaries.

According to the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), the EB-5 program has been a boon for the US economy especially areas suffering from chronic employment. It has led to investments over $8.7 billion since 2012 and helped create more than 35,000 jobs.

But with Trump era beginning and Congress hardening its stance towards immigration, it comes as no surprise that major changes are being planned in the EB-5 visa regime.

Considering the 43 million immigrants already in the USA, the 10,000 EB5 visas a year are a drop in the bucket; but considering that other developed countries like Canada and Australia are offering the same investor visa for $1 to $5 million US dollars has brought major heartburn amongst the US lawmakers.

It thus becomes essential for potential immigrants to speed up their education and decision process regarding this unique opportunity to become lawful citizens of the greatest country on earth in as little as 5 years.

People around the world who were dreaming of a life in the United States were as anxious and worried as the Americans when the US Presidential result tilted in favor of Donald Trump. His entire campaign was tailored towards restricting immigration and creating “real jobs for Americans”. The travel ban proved that it was not political rhetoric and Trump administration was bent on upending the current immigration system. But what created mayhem was the introduction of legislation in the US House of Representatives which called for among other things more than doubling of minimum salary for H-1B holders to $130,000.
