The National Foundation for American Policy (NFAP) directed a study that concluded that denial rates for H-1B petitions have risen through the end of 2019. The NFAP discovered that the increasingly restrictive immigration policies created by the Trump administration have been the cause of the increase in the denials of employment petitions. The numbers have risen from 6% in FY 2015 to 24% in the third quarter of FY 2019.
The NFAP also revealed that the denial rates for continuing employment H-1B petitions have also increased, reaching a number 4 times higher through FY 2019 than the same denial rate in FY 2015.
