In United States immigration news this week, a long-awaited White House report recommended wide-ranging administrative improvements to the U.S. legal immigration system, including plans to improve the manner in which employment-based immigrant visas are allocated. 

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services reinstated premium processing for H-1B extension petitions received by the agency on or after July 13, 2015. The suspension was originally set to end on July 27. While USCIS continues to process receipted FY 2016 H-1B cap petitions, the agency estimates that all H-1B cap petitions not selected in the lottery will be returned by July 20, 2015.
