It appears that since the H-1B cap of 65,000 visas has been met there may be a rush to file new H-1B visas on the earliest possible date of April 1st. Presumably this is to ensure getting one of the new 65,000 visas that will be available for the next fiscal year starting October 1, 2004. It also appears that this is a calculated strategy from AILA and others with vested interests that the next years allotment will be gone prior to October 1 to force Congress to increase the cap again. Prior to such Congressional action I hope they remember the nearly 6 million unemployed Americans available to fill any vacancies.
