I think they may be able to reverse the DOL wage guidance, H4 ead will continue, the RFEs etc will go down to pre 2017 levels slowly, visa rejections at consulates will go back to the pre 2017 levels.

I don't think these things happen or get decided at the highest level.
Plus the DOL/speciality occupation guideline is going to be challenged in court, so a Biden administration can simply withdraw it, or not defend it, and not have to worry about going through rule making. Let's see, I am hopeful the rule is nixed. H4 EAD will survive rule making, although there are still legal challenges being mounted against it.

A new version of S386 will be introduced and if Dems get the senate majority, it will eventually become a law, removing country caps and not counting the dependents. It will be a very big move for Indians.

I believe the EOs will be allowed to expire and all Trumps plans to streamline the H1 program will be abandoned. We will go back to a similar life as we did under Obama where we lived and let live.

Keep in mind, just because the policy isn't as strict doesn't mean the CBP agents have left that were enforcing the strict policy. There will definitely be some time required for things to go back to anything like they were over four years ago.

Nothing will change, the dems are apathetic to legal immigrants, their major focus is the illegal immigrants and getting them citizenship and green cards ahead of legal immigrants. So at best, the renewals and GC process will be quicker that’s all. No earth shattering changes honestly!

D4 I agree with parts of your argument. So many internationals should NOT work for consulting firms. Sends the wrong message.

At least we will be saved from another 4 years of Stephen Miller!!!

Jeez.. can you please hold on to it. Nothing will change in short term. Its very clear and sound. Atleast we are saved from a moody president.

Nothing will change. Without senate they can’t pass any laws. Just some simple EOs. I hope they undo the EOs from previous administration.

Now everyone is saying we can go if we don't like here we have the same opportunity 4 years ago.

At least they might undo the EO so that I can go home and get a visa stamp. I don’t expect anything else

No changes. Rules will tighten to support domestic economy - but you know what, this is not about us. The country has spoken , time for India to speak now.

Lol Dems don’t have the senate yet sadly, so if they’re lucky they’ll be on the queue.

Most likely if the republicans hold the senate, those who have DACA won’t be threatened with their status being terminated and might have some options in terms of work visas or other potential pathways to the greencard. It’ll be a long uphill battle for them regardless.

None

Based on seeing so many posts about H1B on different platforms and repeated unlawful decisions people take, I really think many of us are not aware of even basic rules one should follow when on H1B. Starting point for straightening things is to read your own LCA document fully (I know it’s a lengthy document) and check if all details including job title, duties, specialty occupation title etc. match with what you are actually doing.
