USCIS WARNS OF SPOOF H-1B RELEASE

Employers should continue to file FY 2007 petitions;

Washington, D.C.- USCIS became aware today of the circulation of a bogus release indicating that USCIS has received enough petitions to meet the congressionally mandated H-1B cap for FY 2007. The release further relays that the H-1B exemption limit for the first 20,000 foreign workers with a U.S.-earned master's or higher degree was also met. This release is not accurate and was not issued by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.

To date, USCIS has not received enough petitions to close either the congressionally mandated H-1B cap for FY 2007 or the 20,000 worker exemption limit. USCIS is committed to ensuring that employers have accurate and timely H-1B information and will provide an update about the latest cap numbers later this week.
Official USCIS news release are always listed on the USCIS website (uscis.gov) at the following location Chronological List of Public Information.
