Denied Entry on B-2 -- Can I travel in the future?

Aug 23rd 2018
I was recently denied entry into the US while seeking to enter on a B-2 visa. The denial happened at the pre-clearance office at the Amtrak station in Vancouver, BC. I'm trying to understand if this denial will affect my ability to travel to the US in the future or lawfully immigrate there should I choose to do so, and was wondering if anyone here could help me get some clarity.

A little background: I had been living in the US for almost 6 years - lawfully - as an F-1 student. I completed...

Eligibility for EB-2 category

Jul 18th 2018
I have 3 years Bachelors degree from India and more than 17 years of total software development experience. Do I qualify for EB-2 category?
My company says that since I have 3 years of Bachelor and not the 4 years Bachelor degree, therefore, I do not qualify for EB-2 category.
My understanding was, in order to qualify for EB-2 category one needs to have a bachelor with more than 5 years of software development experience. Is that correct?
Could you please throw some light on this?

Scheduling parents' B2 visa interview while I am outside USA

Jul 12th 2018
Hi guys,

I got my H-1B visa restamped while visiting my parents in India. I want them to visit me sometime in the next few months.

Their interview date is scheduled for Aug 2 while I am leaving India on the 4th.
As I will not be in the US while they appear for their interview, would that be considered as...

B1 in lieu of H1B rejected - 214(b) refusal

Jun 13th 2018
I am working with a multinational automotive company in India. Recently my company processed my VISA for a short term work in US(3months). It was B1 in lieu of H1B but got rejected citing 214(b) clause. I have no idea why it got rejected as the consular officer didnt ask me much questions. He took the attorney letter which I had submitted and told me admin processing is required. At the end my Passport came without VISA stamping.

Now my company is attempting me to send in L1B. The span of...
