    No problem. This isn't exactly a highly focused thread.

    IMHO, The administration may not bite the pre-registration bullet because of the Texas ruling.

    I think the Perez case gave them all the coverage they need on that score.

    Ok. My sense is that the pre-registration will not be easily digested by people like Sessions and Grassley.

    I'm not sure anything inmigration related goes down well with Sen.Grassley and Sessions. I didn't hear too many noices when it came to H4 EAD recently... Or perhaps they've been screaming their heads off for a long time and I've heard. Either way, in both cases, the receipients or beneficiaries already have gone through a labor certification and application process and waiting in line. What is the opposition exactly besides xenophobia?

    I suppose this is a pre-cursor to the I Squared and/or HR 213. They are focusing on the abuse aspect of the H-1B. If you read an earlier testimony by Ron Hira, it's mostly about how to plug the loop holes, 'consultancy employers' etc -here is his earlier testmony on S 744 (CIR) back in 2013 - http://www.epi.org/publication/testimony-border-security-economic-opportunity/

    I 'd assume he and others are going to rehash the same content with updated data/numbers

    this may be off topic but there are definitely some elements in immigrant community that take advantage and skirt the rules, especially the whole EVC model has lot of holes and has a lot of scams.

    They ask to register, but that's about it. Never received any agenda. That's why it is important that some of us attend it, who can during work hours to hear what they have to say. There will not be any announcements but maybe some more clarifications on Point 4 of Immigration Action. Only H4 EAD has happened so far.

    Go to the top of this thread and you should find an email address to use to register.

    Again, I want to caution everyone not to expect explicit announcements as to specific programs and hard start dates. At best, I think we will get a general description of what they plan to do.
