USCIS Announces Business Team Members To Improve Employment Based Processing

After announcing its initiative to streamline immigrant entrepreneur processing last year called Entrepreneurs in Residence, on April 13, 2012, USCIS has provided the names of the business experts who, together with USCIS officials, will form the team.  Apart from USCIS officials, other team members include private industry members with finance, technology, startup and product development, and investment experience.  Dubbed an EIR Tactical Team, the group will look to identify where and how changes in USCIS processes can occur within the existing legal structure to improve processing in H-1B, L1, E-1, E-2, and O-1 cases.  The team began its work in late March, 2012, which will continue for 90 days.  Beyond the catchy team title, and other predictable gloss, employers and foreign nationals entrepreneurs alike look for significant benefits to flow from these efforts.
