Similar role. Almost double the total comp. Still an RFE. Why is USCIS doing this?!

      What does this mean? How is one visa connected to the country? What’s wrong with mentality?

    Why will congressmen care? People on visas are not their vote bank.

    Do they give you a reason why they think more evidence is needed? Also what exactly is your title? Data Scientist?

      Is USCIS still giving out RFE's for visa transfer? I thought they are rejecting the transfer completely

    So glad I got my greencard, applied just before Trump got elected, feel like I made it in just under the wire. I see people who came in with similar background/ occupation / visa class as me getting hassled and denied now.

      Well, may be it's just a matter of time 😂. Historically even born citizens were kicked out at some point when situation got bad enough: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mexican_Repatriation

      And I heard another bigger crisis is coming!!!

    Amazon hired lawyers to take care of this shit, correct? It’s their problem now.

    Hope you’re still at the older company. Stay there until you transfer is approved.

    This is just nuts. Looks like USCIS is in all out assault against H1B and weirdly making life difficult for every one not just those who have abused the system. I am wondering what the legality of all these RFEs and denials are. If they have already adjudicates a position to be "Specialty Occupation" in the past and have approved someone as qualified, how can they go back ? Is ignoring past precedence ok ? Don't they have to go through a rule making process ? I wondering if I should reach out to local Congressmen for help
