A Congressman Seeking to End OPT, EB2NIW with 17 Citations Approved
A new Bill seeks to end optional practical training for F1 international
A congressman plans to introduce a bill to amend the Immigration and
Nationality Act to eliminate the Optional Practical Training (OPT) Program,
which allows international students and graduates of U.S. schools to work in
the United States for up to three years after the completion of their
academic degree programs.
The proposed bill has not become law yet. However, if passed into law in the
future, it can adversely impact international students’ ability to obtain
work permit based on OPT, which is a very important pathway to obtain jobs
after graduation, as well as H1-B sponsorship.
The proposed bill is just one of many proposed changes in the context of
Trump Administration’s active efforts to changing the existing immigration
How to avoid future risk resulted from potential immigration law and policy
Our law firm recommends that eligible applicants apply for a green card

Approval of I-140 EB2NIW Application.
Lately, our law firm helped a research scientist in the field of materials
science receive approval of her I-140 NIW petition from the USCIS.
The client received her Ph.D. degree in Photochemical Sciences and has been
working as a postdoctoral research fellow at one of the leading research
universities in the U.S. Her current research focuses on developing
innovative biomaterials for clinical use.
For filing her EB2NIW petition, Client had prepared the following
documentary evidence based on our 'Document Preparation Instructions': 1)
more than 10 papers published in highly regarded peer-reviewed journals; 2)
about 25 conference presentations; 3) 17 citations of her published papers;
4) 1 peer-reviewer experience; and 5) 5 recommendation letters (supervisor,
past collaborator, and 3 independent experts). To expedite her NIW document
preparation process, Client asked our law firm for 'Letter Drafting Service
,' and we drafted five expert opinion letters for Client based on her
personal statement and other supporting information she provided to us.
Through the drafting and revision process between Client and our law firm,
we guided and helped Client describe in detail in her expert opinion letters
, how her research results/findings have been used, implemented, or
referenced by other researchers in the related fields, and identify some
prominent or leading scientists citing the applicant’s work and how their
work was influenced by the applicant’s work.
Through her expert opinion letters and citation evidence, Client
sufficiently demonstrated that some of the leading scientists from around
the world had acknowledged the value of her work and its important
significance in the field of materials science and engineering.
Client's I-140 EB2NIW petition was filed to USCIS on October 30, 2018, and
was approved in May 2019 without Request for Evidence (RFE).
