29 Months OPT Ruling Challenged

Monday, June 2, 2008

Desi Graduate StudentsBarely two months after a rule [extending OPT to 29 months] passed by the Bush administration to retain American educated world class immigrant talent within the US, IRLI [Immigration Reform Law Institute] backed by Programmers Guild and other groups have challenged the ruling in a federal lawsuit filed at U.S. District Court in Newark, N.J.

John Miano of Programmers Guild said,
They did this with absolutely no legal basis. We hear over and over again that U.S workers do not have the skill to do the job.
More details awaited and will be updated soon.
Update - 1:
It [New rule] has no basis in the law whatsoever.
Then the rule was improperly implemented as an emergency measure with no notice and comment.
