Lawmakers Criticize Immigration Backlog

Associated Press reports that "A deluge of immigration applications in the months preceding a filing fee increase last year should have been foreseen, lawmakers on Thursday told Bush administration officials. Previous increases in immigration application fees have been preceded by spikes in applications, said Rep. Zoe Lofgren, D-Calif. Application increases have also been seen in years before elections because people want to vote, she said. Some 1.4 million people applied for naturalization in the 2007 fiscal year, which ended Sept. 30."

Making The H1-B Visa Quota -- USCIS Begins Accepting H1-B Visa Applications On April 1, 2008
Karen-Lee Pollak writes "On April 1, 2008, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) begins accepting H1-B visa applications for the 2009 fiscal year. Last year, the USCIS reached its H1-B visa quota in one day. It is likely that the USCIS will also reach its H1-B cap for the 2009 fiscal year soon after April 1, 2008."
