Immigration Groups Sue Government to Gain H-1B Lottery Transparency

The American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) and American Immigration Council (AIC) have jointly filed a lawsuit on May 20, 2016, against the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) in an effort to obtain information regarding how the “H-1B lottery” is conducted. USCIS has never fully disclosed details about how the selection process works. According to the announcement, the “litigation is intended to shine a necessary light on an important process in America’s business immigration system.”
