Opposition to the Donald Trump administration’s new H-1B rules is mounting with a second lawsuit challenging them set to be filed in the Washington DC Court on October 19.
Greg Siskind, an immigration lawyer based in Memphis, Tennessee, who is filing the lawsuit, told Moneycontrol in an email, that the lawsuit would include 10 universities, physician and dentist groups, an IT industry association, a community health clinic, a nursing home chain and a logistics/warehousing company.
The first lawsuit was filed on October 16 in the District Court of New Jersey by the ITServe Alliance, which represents US IT firms, and joined by seven other firms. Apart from these, there is one more in the offing from the US Chamber of Commerce and others, and it will be filed in North California, said Siskind.
