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 ( at the following location Chronological List of Public Information.

On March 1, 2003, U.S Citizenship and Immigration
Services became one of three legacy INS components to join the U.S.
Department of Homeland Security. USCIS is charged with fundamentally
transforming and improving the delivery of immigration and citizenship
services, while enhancing the integrity of our nation’s security.
