Read previewA new reform to the US H-1B visa program aims to ring out some of the uncertainty for migrant workers and employers. Each year, tens of thousands of foreign nationals wind up at venture-backed companies through the employment-based visa program. However, obtaining an H-1B visa remains challenging due to high demand. Data shows much of the increase was due to a record-breaking number of employers submitting multiple H-1B registrations for the same person. "This led to many individuals being entered into the lottery multiple times, through different companies, and ultimately decreasing the odds of being selected in the lottery," Finkelman said.

Indian Muslims Flunk the Israel Test

But the fact it kicked in mere hours after Hamas’s civilian slaughter on Oct. 7—the assertion that somehow Israel drove Hamas to do it—deserves examination. Images: Zuma Press/AFP/Getty Images Composite: Mark KellyThe Hamas attacks in Israel this month presented the world with a stark test of moral clarity that the leaders of India’s 200 million Muslims appear intent on flunking. Their refusal to condemn the terrorist group’s savagery, or in some cases even to acknowledge it, is exceedingly foolish. It will fan fears of Islamic extremism among India’s Hindu majority and drive away the centrist allies Indian Muslims need to safeguard their rights. Indian Muslim political and intellectual elites have adopted a fanatically one-sided approach to Gaza that has fueled pro-Palestinian protests in Delhi, Pune, Mumbai, Bangalore, Aligarh and Hyderabad, among other Indian cities.
