David Rugendorf Quoted in Daily Journal 

August 8, 2017

David Rugendorf was quoted in the article, "Attorneys Say Screening of Entry-Level Visas Up," published on August 8, 2017 by the Daily Journal.

The article discusses how attorneys are receiving more requests for additional evidence from the government regarding certain visa applications for highly-skilled, entry-level workers. The requested documentation is mostly aimed at the lower end of the wage scale for high-skilled H-1B visas, adding that since no new policy guidance has been issued by the government, the practice amounts to a de facto new policy without going through the normal process.

David Rugendorf is quoted in the article saying, "We're getting some brushback. The regulations say that the H-1B requires the job to be in a specialty occupation and that the employee has the qualifications to perform it."
