These firms in a letter to Obama claimed that US immigration authorities are going beyond the laws in rejecting the L1 visa applications. 

According to the Computerworld, the companies told Obama that "Such delays or denials do not enhance compliance or enforcement and do nothing except disrupt carefully-laid business plans and create significant costs to the company and the American economy."

The letter was written to Obama by IT majors Wipro Technologies, Tata America International Corp, a subsidiary of Tata Consultancy Services, Cognizant Technology Solutions and Accenture, eBay, EMC, General Electric, Hewlett-Packard Co, Intel, Microsoft, Texas Instruments and Boeing, Dow Chemical, Caterpillar and Chevron USA .

In 2011 it was 27%.  The letter said that the US immigration authorities have adopted an "inconsistent and improperly narrowed definition" of specialized knowledge.
