The outcome of the annual H-1B visa lottery is immigration’s Groundhog Day. It’s the same result year after year, as the large outsourcing firms continue to lead all others in getting H-1B visas.
But this year may be different, because of President Donald Trump.
The H-1B lottery favors large firms. In the 2015 fiscal year, for instance, the top 10 firms received 38% of all the H-1B visas in computer occupations alone. All these firms, except for Amazon and to a partial extent IBM, are outsourcers. These large companies have the resources to submit enough visa applications to help ensure they receive a bare minimum of approvals.
