Subject: Message from the Chairman
For the past 10 years, I have had the honor of serving the mission of this agency in my capacity as Chairman, and it has been a true blessing to work with all of you. Though your dedication and excellence may not be fully appreciated outside the Board, I know full well that the public could not be better served than by the professionals who fill the entire ranks of this institution.

With a heavy heart, I have decided to retire from government service, effective this Saturday. However, I take comfort in knowing that this institution is strong because of the steadfast integrity of its judges and staff. Keep true to your commitment to fairness and justice.
Thank you all.

DHS Proposes Minimal Registration Fee for Petitioners Seeking to File H-1B Cap-Subject Petitions

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) today announced a notice of proposed rulemaking that would require petitioners seeking to file H-1B cap-subject petitions to pay a $10 fee for each electronic registration they submit to USCIS.
Because USCIS must expend resources to implement and maintain the H-1B registration system, and because USCIS operations are funded by fees collected for adjudication and naturalization services, DHS is proposing an appropriate, nominal fee for submitting H-1B registrations to recover those costs.
On Jan. 31, DHS published a final rule requiring petitioners seeking to file H-1B cap-subject petitions, including those eligible for the advanced degree exemption, to first electronically register with USCIS during a designated registration period, unless we suspend that requirement. We also stated in that final rule that we were suspending the registration requirement for the fiscal year (FY) 2020 cap season, to complete required user testing of the new H-1B registration system and otherwise ensure the system and process work correctly.
In that final rule, DHS also reordered the cap selection process to increase the chance of selecting petitioners with a master’s degree or higher from a U.S. institution of higher education. Preliminary data shows that the number of petitions for U.S. advanced degree holders selected toward the FY 2020 numerical allocations increased by more than 11% over the year before.
H-1B visas allow skilled workers in certain specialty occupations to temporarily live and work in the United States.
Additional information on the proposed rule is available in the Federal Register. Public comments will be accepted from Sept. 4 (when the proposed rule publishes in the Federal Register) through Oct. 4.
