USCIS Announces H-1B Cap Not Hit Yet

Today USCIS issued an emailed press release indicating that it would continue to accept H-1B petitions subject to the 2010 cap, meaning that they do not think they received enough petitions to meet the caps yet.

We do not yet know how many petitions USCIS received, nor how long the remainder of the 85,000 H-1B “slots” will last, but will continue to monitor the situation.
