Why should someone share their my personal data on a random google form, while there is no clarity as to why the data is required? How would someone gain comfort that this is not fraud?

Thanks for pointing out. GitHub has creator details. For now we are still at the final stage selecting lawyer. This is why we did not put what are the specific points will be used to sue. We need to listen to Lawyer’s advise. Once it’s confirmed, we will update too.

I think the purpose of the litigation would be to disqualify bad actors from registering.

Yes. We can’t change the law in a few months. It’s a long run game. But we can try to stop the fraudulent participation this year. And probably push USCIS to modify rules for next year.

What is the purpose of this? I can’t see the main objective of this initiative. What litigation? What’s the expected outcome? To support the wage level rule or what?

As we are still taking with lawyer to confirm the final specific points, we cannot tell you what to sue. But the ultimate goal is: for 2022 H1B financial year, multiple registrations and fraudulent participation should be denied. For future, H1B beneficiary application per headcount should have a upper limited.

04/12 Update:

We reached out to 6 lawyers. 1 rejected us. 4 no reply yet. 1 will have a meeting with volunteer group. The lawyer is Charles Kuck and his team. We are reaching to more lawyers.

We are still looking for people in VT that would like to write to congressman/woman. Please DM me if you’d like to support! Thank you.

(1/5) Dear all,

We are pleased to announce that our group will start a class action lawsuit against USCIS regarding the unfair H-1B lottery for Fiscal Year 2022. Charles Kuck, Greg Siskind and Jeff Joseph will represent us in court. All of them have extensive litigation experience against various federal agencies that violate immigration laws. Recently, they represented plaintiffs in cases involving extreme delays in the handling of the Diversity Visa, the O-1 visa and the EB-5 investor visa. They have a track record of delivering results for plaintiffs in high-profile cases.

(2/5) Our central argument rests on the 1990 Immigration and Nationality Act, which stipulates that the number of distinct individuals should be subject to the annual H-1B cap, not the number of registrations. Hence, USCIS should select H-1B beneficiaries from the pool of distinct individuals, not registrations. Given the rampant multiple-filing abuse this year, we anticipate that the cap will not be filled after the March lottery, and we will ask USCIS to implement such changes for the second round of selection. We will also ask USCIS to extend the Cap-Gap to protect individuals on expiring F1-OPTs or STEM OPTs in anticipation of the potential second round H-1B selection.

(3/5) To qualify as a plaintiff, you need to have participated and lost the cap-subject H-1B lottery for the FY2022. The volunteer committee of the STOPH1BAbuse group will hold an online information session this Saturday (May 8, 2021) at 3pm ET to introduce more details about our class action (https://us02web.zoom.us/j/4875239680). Relevant information will also be available at https://stoph1babuse.com. After our information session, Jeff Joseph will set up an online plaintiff in-take process to facilitate mass sign-up early next week.

(4/5)
Last but not least, if you followed all rules and laws and built your life here by working hard (kudos for getting a job during a pandemic!), only to find your spot taken by unscrupulous H-1B scammers, this is your chance to fight back!

If you feel abused and betrayed by the illegal conduct of USCIS, a bureaucracy that is funded by us but exists only to put a chokehold on our throats, this is your chance to fight back!

(5/5) If you want the H-1B selection process to be more transparent and fair so that future generations of high-skilled immigrants do not have to suffer what we suffered, this is your chance to make changes for the better!

So please join us.

Thank you very much for your time and consideration.
