   >H1B And H2B Relief Coming
   >
   >Congress has reconvened and is expected to pass the FY 2005 omnibus
   >bill appropriations package very soon. This omnibus bill will likely
   >contain provisions to provide relief for the H1B and H2B quotas. This
   >congressional action will surely be welcomed by many in the immigration
   >bar.

   >Unfortunately, the H-1B quota debate overlooks the actions of one
   >pivotal party: middlemen. More importantly, it ignores the speculation
   >engaged in by middlemen between US employers and H-1B professionals in
   >response to an artificial quota. This speculation exacerbates the ill
   >effects of an artificial quota (see today's Article for more).
   >
   >For the last seven years, Congress has been dragged into the annual
   >ritual of the H-1B quota fight. We believe that Congress is getting
   >tired of this issue. The likely elimination of the H-1B cap for those
   >with advanced degrees can be understood as the first step in Congress's
   >plan to extricate itself from what has become a fruitless debate and
   >let market forces have a greater say in this part of immigration
   >policy. This augurs well for the sweeping immigration reform debate in
