    The immigration lawyers are probably just ticked off that they have to do actual work now, as opposed to just following the templates year after year.

    The decade-plus wait for green cards has been great easy money for immigration lawyers who get paid for every H-1B renewal. If green cards were quicker, they’d make far less “easy money”, since you don’t need an immigration lawyer for anything once you’ve received the card.

      Part of this is the liberal media, which portrays ALL immigration lawyers as defenders of the light or whatever else.

      Yes, some of them do great things like preventing unfair deportations due to simple mistakes or whatever.

      ^liberal media doesn't care about legals. Infact they tell legals to shut their mouth when you talk to them because you aren't yet deported (so your problems are irrelevant).

    Haven’t heard of anyone at Apple getting RFE’d (there might be someone, I just haven’t heard of them).

    There are multiple wage levels, and filings that specify “Level 1” wages are being the most hit. This is probably not a bad thing.
