WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Chamber of Commerce Vice President of Immigration Policy Jon Baselice released the following statement today on the recent ruling in favor of the plaintiffs in Chamber of Commerce v. DHS over H-1B visa restrictions:

“This is a major victory for American businesses and our economy. If implemented, the H-1B lottery rule would have denied many companies access to the talent they need to expand their operations and create American jobs. Given the significant difficulties that employers face in meeting their workforce needs today, many businesses are breathing a sigh of relief in response to this ruling.”
