On Dec. 30, news reports indicated that the US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) was drafting a policy that would curb the indefinite extension for H-1B visa holders on the green-card route, forcing them to return home.

"USCIS has announced to us that it is retracting its policy to deny all H-1B visa through (beyond) year 6 based on section 104". This is a GREAT development.
Withington said that USCIS was never considering such a policy change and that "any suggestion that USCIS changed its position because of pressure is absolutely false".
For Indians, that wait could stretch for years, given the massive backlog caused by the system of per-country annual cap on the number of permanent residencies - by one estimate it would take an Indian 70 years to get there, at today's rate of clearance.
