July 7, 2006
USCIS updated the current cap count with new data gathered as of July 6, 2006. The number of approved and receipted pending petitions now has reached 14,249. Approximately 700 H1-B Advanced Degree petitions have been received but have not yet been data-entered and receipted. The combined approximate total as of July 6th is 14,949.
If history is our guide, members should expect to see a steady increase in submissions now that will continue until the cap is reached.
