Do you guys think that after the whole new executive order (don't even want to mention his name), the existing H1b visas will be affected or is it going to only affect the process moving forward?

I doubt that. H1B is basically US' secret weapon. They get all the skilled individuals through that program. Besides, if they cancel the H1B, there is no incentive for majority of the international students to come here and spend 3 times as a domestic student to study. They would rather spend that in a more welcoming country and the fees for US domestic students will go up.

My feeling is it won't change anything. Maybe they'll scrutinize the applications more for fraud, but that's a good thing for applicants like us who have been getting screwed over for playing by the rule book.

Not directly. There are many levels of review that any far-reaching action like an H1-B change have to go through before being enacted. Having said that it's possible to make life so difficult with little law changes that one decides that the overall process is just not worth it. It's inching towards the latter.

Should help reduce some of the H1B abuse and hoarding by contracting companies and the infosys, tcs etc

It's only for government jobs, right?

^ Nope. Across the gamut of H1-B jobs.

While she is waiting for the lottery / adjudication to take place, can she be in the United States or does she have to return to her home country?
