Hello, my name is ***** ***** I will be the immigration attorney helping you today.

If you have been out of H1B status since May 2015 when you got laid off, that is why they are telling you to leave the US as soon as possible. Because if you are in the US for more than 6 months without legal status, you can receive a 3 year ban from returning to the US. It is important that you depart as soon as possible.

Good luck to you during this process and I hope this answer has helped you!
