The US Chamber of Commerce, National Association of Manufacturers as well as other groups and organizations have filed suit against the Federal Government who restricted H1Bs during the joblessness crisis caused by Covid-19.

The organizations assert that the restrictions “undermine high skilled immigration into the United States,” as reported by Business Insider.

This month, the Federal Government redefined the definition of “specialty occupation,” severely limiting the number of jobs available to H1B visa workers and angering those corporations who have learned how to game the previous system, and in turn, opening up the opportunity of higher-paying work to Americans.

‘The interim final rule released by the Department of Homeland Security requires corporations to make “real” offers to “real employees” by closing loopholes and preventing the displacement of American workers, as well as enhance the Department’s enforcement operations’, Business Insider reports.

The lawsuit, filed on Monday in the District of Columbia, alleges that if the rules were to be left in place the “would affect hundreds of thousands of American-based workers and disrupt manufacturers’ ability to hire and retain critical high-skilled talent.”
