USCIS UPDATES H-1B CAP COUNT FOR JULY 23, 2010 - AT 26,000 - Atlanta Immigration lawyer | Best immigration attorneys Atlanta GA

USCIS just issued another update that as of July 23, 2010 they received approximately 26,000 H-1B petitions towards the 2011 fiscal year under the regular cap plus 11,300 H-1B petitions for applicants with U.S. advanced degrees. The jump to 1,200 petitions in a week is about double the 600 per week average we have been reporting over the last few weeks — not sure if this is a fluke or sign of slight recovery, remains to be seen.
