Update on Save Jobs USA's H-4 Case

By John Miano on July 7, 2015

Last week there was a little activity in the Save Jobs USA case against DHS over its use of regulation to allow aliens to work on H-4 visas. Judge Chutkan denied DHS's motion to dismiss the case on procedural grounds. That means the case will move to a decision. A win is still a win, but I would not read too much into this decision because, just as with the denial of the preliminary injunction motion, no merit issues were decided.

The case schedule is not yet set, but I expect that it will be over in around 12 weeks. The major uncertainty at this point is the availability of the full administrative record. American workers will have to wait a little while for things to be put right.
