U.S based companies sent out petitions to transfer foreign-based employees with “specialized knowUS Visaledge” into the U.S these applications were denied 34 percent of the time last year. In 2007 there was only a 7 perfect denial rate.

The executive director of the foundation, Stuart Anderson says it’s hard to understand why the denials have gone up so much. The increase lines up with the beginning of the country’s recession, this was probably done to slow down the flow of workers into the U.S.
